On July 5, on the territory of the National Reserve “Sofia Kyiv”, an “unofficial meeting” of the UOC priests signed a letter to the Pentardarchy with a request to organize the “church tribunal” over the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill, with representatives of PTC. The meeting was organized by the State Service of Ukraine for Ethnopolitics and Freedom of Conscience. The UOC priest Anatoly Slinko announced the meeting on Facebook.
In addition to the head of the State Service of Ukraine for Ethnopolitics and Freedom of Conscience Olena Bogdan, who moderated the meeting, she was also visited by the Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko.
During the meeting, “we discussed possible points of contact. This is the beginning of a dialogue, unofficial, from the bottom, so to speak,” writes Slinko.
He also wrote: “The 9th paragraph of the resolution of the Council of the UOC of May 27 proclaims the need for dialogue with the OCU “even in such crisis circumstances, the Council does not lose hope for the resumption of dialogue.” What can be regarded as a blessing to a dialogue ”, the unflattering that no one“ blessed ”the meeting from the UOC.
