Flyers campaigning for EPTS
In the cities of Ukraine has put up billboards with quotations of President Poroshenko and distributing flyers agitating Ukrainians for a United Local Orthodox Church.
In the agitation that spread in different cities, believers are invited to “procession”, which starts from Shevchenko Park in Kyiv at 12:00.
It is interesting that at 11:30 from the Cathedral starts “Kresna stroke” of the Kiev Patriarchate, which is just about 12:00 head to Shevchenko’s Park.
In the test of the billboards used a quote from the speech of the head of state on 15 July on the “easier” of the UGCC in Servance: “Our army protects our land. Our language protects our heart. Our faith protects our soul.”
Earlier in Kiev, established the city lights of identical design with the same quotations of the President of Petro Poroshenko on the army, religion and language.
His initiative to establish a Single national Orthodox Church in Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko coordinated with the heads of UOC-KP and the UAOC Patriarch Makarios, who signed the appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew on granting the Ukrainian Church of the Tomos of autocephaly.
The head of the UOC-KP, said that the state cannot exist without an army, and the Church has repeatedly said that claims the place of the head ETC.
In mid-April, Poroshenko appealed to the Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew to grant the Tomos of autocephaly of the Church in Ukraine and announced the creation of a Single Local Church. The Verkhovna Rada supported the President. In the Kyiv Patriarchate has already declared that they see on the head ETC its leader, Filaret, a devotee of the canonical Church anathema.
