  • Orthodox Church to move forward with Ukrainian independence

Russian Federation opposes any steps that lead to a split in Orthodox Christianity, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday, when asked about Ukraine's bid to establish an independent church outside Moscow's control. But hey will be called the "Russian church", not the "Ukrainian", he stressed.

Since the late 1600s, the church in Ukraine has been formally under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Poroshenko quickly hailed the decision of the Patriarchate, which is based in its historic home of Istanbul, the former Constantinople and once the capital of the Byzantine Empire before the Ottoman Muslim conquest of 1453.

The move could benefit Poroshenko in next year's elections.

"With its actions, Constantinople is crossing a red line and catastrophically undermines the unity of global Orthodoxy", said Alexander Volkov, a spokesman for Russian church leader Patriarch Kirill.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the exarchs of the Ecumenical Patriarch, who were in Kyiv in September as part of preparations for granting autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, arrived in Istanbul, where on October 10 they were addressing the Synod.

President Petro Poroshenko has pushed for the church in Ukraine to be independent.

The decision was reached during a meeting of the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and published on the Patriarchate's website.

The Ecumenical Patriarchate has granted self-rule, also known as autocephaly, to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

On Wednesday, an influential Moscow Patriarch cleric went so far as to warn that parishioners will not hand over churches to a new Orthodox institution willingly.

Stavropegia are subordinated directly to the Patriarchate, rather than to a local bishop.
