Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and President Petro Poroshenko
Bankova faces a tough condition Fanara: presence at the unity Cathedral of the UOC, and understands that the Church does not do this, the analyst believes Elena Dyachenko.
The Patriarchate of Constantinople understands this, and has set an impossible condition for the creation of EPTS. This opinion was expressed by political scientist Elena Dyachenko in the broadcast of “mistakes”.
The President of Ukraine will not forgive the episcopate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, refusing to participate in the unification Council on the creation of EPTS, and the persecution will start, he said.
“You can say that this meeting from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church was prepared. The official reason is that failed hardware game: the Church does not come to the President to bow. They wanted to meet with the bishops to “quietly”, but that did not work, and had to find an excuse why the President has not met with the Church hierarchy,” said Elena Dyachenko.
The analyst also said that the Patriarchate of Constantinople demands from Poroshenko’s presence at the unity Cathedral and the canonical UOC and the UOC-KP and the UAOC.
“They have set a rather stringent condition: the presence of three Churches. Because of this “mess” happened. Bankova faces a tough condition on the part of Istanbul that was provided with the presence of the canonical Orthodox Church. This suggests that Constantinople knows the situation, and understands that the UOC will not do it. He (the Patriarch Bartholomew, ed.) has set an impossible condition,” stated politekspert.
According to her, “no one is going to provide any autocephaly. Exarchate with strict subordination was quite happy Bartholomew. Moreover, recently did not hesitate in an interview with the BBC, it was stated that Constantinople did not recognize the canonicity of the UOC-KP and the UAOC… Constantinople “threw” believers of the Kyiv Patriarchate and the UAOC. This structure is not recognized and the autocephaly of the question. Their next prospects – strict subordination to Constantinople,” said the analyst.
