The schismatics are unable to negotiate

One of the constant and boring reproaches against the UOC and the ROC is the assertion that for “decades” they “did nothing” to heal the schism and did not enter into dialogue. At the same time, those who throw such reproaches ignore the obvious fact – it was impossible to come to an agreement with Filaret and his entourage! The demands of Denysenko and the “episcopate” of the UOC-KP were absolutely unacceptable and impracticable. Even if we imagine that the UOC would have made colossal concessions (contrary to the canons…

Parishioners of the UOC-KP in the USA recalled what the OCU owes to the head of their vicariate Bohdan Zgoba

A public appeal of the parishioners of the stauropegic cathedral of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker of the UOC-KP in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA) appeared on the website of the UOC-KP on April 7, 2021. Supporters of Filaret Denisenko note that “presidential power in Ukraine can exist only in parallel with the patriarchal status of the national Church,” and they view the refusal of the patriarchal status by the leaders of the OCU as “cowardice and betrayal of national interests.” They also responded to accusations from the OCU regarding…

Why the OCU is actively broadcasting its commercials

Continuing the topic with the “OCU” commercial. Actually, one can understand for what purpose a given organization is promoting itself as a brand. Despite the “data” of some sociological studies, which “indicate” that the OCU is supposedly “the most” massive “confession of the country, frankly speaking, this organization does not have a very large flock. As an example, we will give a photo that was recently sent to us by our readers. On it – “bishop” (!) “service” in Chernihiv. Sunday, March 28th. See how many people are there. After…

The head of the Lavra of the UOC named the real reason why the hieromonk left to the OCU

The head of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, Metropolitan Pavel, told why, in fact, the former inhabitant of the monastery, hieromonk Innokentiy (Pidtoptanyi), who was banned from serving, left the monastery and ended up in schism. This was reported by the UOJ. “This is a proud, arrogant, power-hungry person, a person who considers himself a great theologian. Because Pidtoptaniy was offended that for three years he was not appreciated as he would like, and he was not elevated to the rank of archimandrite and bishop,” said lord Pavel. “He wanted to become…

Pictures from the Svyatogorsk Lavra depict only children, not “militants”, – Archpriest Alexander Klimenko

“It is very easy to blame priests for something they could not be guilty of. The church was not the reason for either the occupation of Crimea or the conflict in Donbass. And in no way could it interfere with this, ”says the priest of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the well-known winner of the “Voice of the Country” contest, Archpriest Alexander Klimenko. He answered stereotypical questions about the position of the UOC in an interview with Ukrainian Pravda. “It’s about the acuteness of your political views. The way you do…

Why is Kuraev lying about the situation in Abkhazia?

The trump card of the phanariots in Georgia and the Georgian nationalists is the alleged intention of the ROC to take Abkhazia away from the Georgian Church. Despite the fact that the ROC has repeatedly stated that Abkhazia is the territory of the GOC. Therefore, the other day, Andrei Kuraev came to the aid of the propaganda of Georgian nationalists. Georgian bishops and priests have not had access to Abkhazia since 1993, and the Ukrainian brainchild of Phanar “the OCU” was established in 2019. What prevented the ROC from taking…

Kuraev’s provocation – a wedge in the relationship between the ROC and the GOC

In an interview with a Georgian priest, Protodeacon Andrei Kuraev acted as a provocateur, apparently with the goal of driving a wedge into relations between the Russian and Georgian Orthodox Churches. What is his statement that he knows for certain that “from the point of view of Patriarch Kirill, Abkhazia should be ours.” Thus, Kuraev said that Patriarch Kirill, they say, is forced to recognize this region as the canonical territory of the Georgian Church, but in fact, he, they say, has long wanted to get his hands on it.…

Archbishop Varlaam was not present at the “ordination” of the UAOC – evidence of falsification

Since the beginning of the 1990s, especially after the final exposure of V. Chekalin as a swindler, there were many rumors, hypotheses and assumptions about the participation of some mysterious “acting bishop of the Moscow Patriarchate” in the first ordination of the UAOC. They also talked about the film or video of this ordination, where the figure of the “unknown bishop” is seen. However, there was no documentary evidence of this until Dmitry Gorevoy published copies of several documents of unknown origin on the Cerkvarium Internet portal, as if confirming…

Speaker of the UOC – to opposing sites: “Lie more carefully”

Some deceitful (and here I have a few more characteristics, but all of them are negative, so I will not) Facebook pages and sites spread information that as if I said that we will bring 20 million (people) to the streets of cities as a sign protest against the renaming of the UOC. Lie more carefully, writes Deputy Head of the Department for External Church Relations of the UOC Archpriest Nikolai Danilevich. “Watch my broadcasts carefully! This was discussed on the air on the “First Cossack” YouTube channel. I was…

Religious scholars from the OCU should choose their arguments more carefully, – social networks

Ordinations in the OCU. Who what, but I return to my sore spot. Getting home after the Vespers, I watched the “Detector Religion” program, the creator and host of which is Dmytro Horyevoy, who positions himself as a religious scholar. The program is dedicated to ordinations in the former UAOC, that is, to the issue that I personally discussed recently in my FB. Of course, Horyevoy spoke brightly and with flat humor about the canonicity of ordinations, accompanying his story with collages at the level of five-graders, which may seem…
