To Ukraine there have arrived the Constantinople exarchs - RIA Novosti, 9/14/2018


MOSCOW, 14 Sep — RIA Novosti. Exarchs of the Constantinople patriarchy have already arrived to Ukraine and have got to work, the patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill at opening of an emergency meeting of the Sacred Synod.© RIA Novosti / Alexander Natruskin Legoyda has reported: nobody in Ukraine will betray the Tserkovpredstoyatel the ROC has compared the events in Ukraine to a distemper of the 1920th years and has urged to follow the example of the patriarch Tikhon who has managed to defend a church canon "courageously and accurately". "And we have to follow his line today" — the patriarch has concluded. The step of Constantinople was sharply condemned also by the Metropolitan of Kiev and All Ukraine Onufry. "It is anticanonical, that is uncanonical action of the Constantinople church. She has no right to send the legates to our independent church. <…> She has neither moral, nor canon law to interpose in the matter of Ukraine" — Onufry has said. According to him, granting a tomos (decree) on autocephaly limits freedom of Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The Kiev authorities try to achieve recognition of uncanonical religious structures and creation on their basis of uniform local autocephalous church in Ukraine, outside Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Autocephaly is called the status of local church assuming her administrative independence of other churches. Last week the Constantinople patriarchy has reported that it "within preparation for granting orthodox church to autocephaly in Ukraine" appointed exarchs in Kiev the archbishop Pamphylian Daniil from the USA and the bishop Edmonton Illarion from Canada. ROC has condemned this decision and I have expressed to Constantinople a protest. It is noted that appointment of exarchs to Ukraine — the most rough violation of church canons according to which bishops of one local church can't interpose in the matter another.
