Bishop of UOC-KP: the Bishops do not believe the Synod ptsu Plenipotentiary


The meeting of “Synod” ptsu

The first “Synod” of ptsu is not a Synod, but only a rehearsal, I think “hierarchy” and ptsu.

The Bishop of the UOC KP/ptsu Adrian Kulik shared in social networks opinion “bishops” of the DNC, who believe that the recent “Synod” was just a “rehearsal”. About this he wrote on his page in Facebook that was later removed. However, the SPM has proved to be a screenshot of the publication.

Qualifies this by adding that does not represent the official views ptsu, Adrian Kulik refers to “thoughts, emotions, judgments” in which they shared.

He also notes that his “unity in the past,” the UOC-KP must “dictates Filaret”.

“I can only give the opinion of the bishops of the ptsu. Despite the fact that the Patriarch with his Synod (the Synod of the former KP) brazenly decided to enter the newly formed PCU, in fact it was the Synod of Philaret, with the addition of three votes, combined, from other Churches.

So, in order not to be verbose, I want to say that the bishops of the DNC do not believe the Synod on 5 February Plenipotentiary, and just the rehearsal,” wrote Kulik.

In addition to Kulik on the recognition status of the Synod of the PCU for the Assembly, passed February 5, said the other “hierarchy” ptsu, in particular Michael Zinkevich.

“I have no idea what it was for a meeting that took place on 5 February. That meeting, I was told by the Bishop Simeon (“the Bishop of Dnipropetrovsk and Krivoy Rog” Simeon Zinkevich, EDS.), troubled “Metropolitan” Michael Zinkevich. – There is legislation, there is a Statute of the Church, there are Tomos, who is only two months old in which we must live. Everything else – not canonically, incorrectly, has the right capacity”.

As reported by SPM at the first meeting of “Synod” ptsu, on 5 February, it was decided to leave Filaret Denisenko Department of the Kiev “diocese,” composed of the parishes and monasteries of Kiev, with the exception of St. Michael’s Golden-domed monastery.

In the “Synod” was attended by 11 members of new Church organizations, including “honorary Patriarch” Filaret Denisenko, who through illness missed the enthronement of the newly elected “Patriarch” Epiphanius Dumenko.
