The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew signed a cooperation agreement
The press service of the President reported that the agreement on cooperation between Ukraine and Constantinople is an agreement on the establishment of an independent Ukrainian Church.
The ambiguity of the title of the news implying that the Orthodox Church in Ukraine created by this agreement, commented in his account in the Telegram, Chairman of the Synodal Department for relations between the Russian Orthodox Church with society and mass-media Vladimir Legoyda.
According to him, the information was unprofessional.
“Oh, how! It turns out that the correct headers are not able to write not only a media but also a press-service of the President of Ukraine signed a cooperation agreement to establish an independent Orthodox Church in Ukraine (ie once again the assurances that such a Church will be created) in the header of the turns… in the agreement on the establishment of an independent Ukrainian Church. That reads like something that a Church created by this agreement. Of course, you can wriggle out, saying that refers to the fact that such a Church will be created. But the ambiguity of the title – it’s unprofessional colleagues. In General, while all, as in the famous film: “trousers turn to elegant shorts”,” – says Vladimir Legoyda.
November 3, the official website of the President of Ukraine has published information under the title: “Ukraine and the Ecumenical Patriarchate have signed an Agreement on the establishment of an independent Ukrainian Church.”
As reported by the SPM, the agreement “On cooperation and interaction between Ukraine and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople” the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew signed at the meeting in Istanbul.
