Religious Scholar Yurii Chornomorets
In Ukraine there should be only the Orthodox Church of Ukraine established the “unification Council,” said Yurii Chornomorets.
UOC should give two months not to rename and to join the newly formed Church structure. Anyone who does not wish to go to the DNC, to serve in private homes. This was stated by Unitarian religious scholar Yurii Chornomorets in your Facebook.
“Overall, I believe that we should not have to pass a law that the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine needs to call the ROC in Ukraine – it was necessary to adopt a law that the state of Ukraine from 6.1.19 respects the canons of the Orthodox Church, which require that in Ukraine there was only one canonical Church. Since it is now clear what is a canonical Church, the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine is necessary to give a 2 month not to rename itself, and its divisions, and to join the canonical Church at the Council as a whole or each community separately. And in the case of the non-aligned to remove from registration all of the “non-canonical” community, allowing them to serve exclusively in their own private homes,” – said Chernomorets.
Previously Yuriy Chornomorets, who in 2016 has passed from Orthodoxy to the UGCC, stated that Filaret is the first canonical “Patriarch” in Ukraine.
22 December 2018 Petro Poroshenko has signed anti-Catholic bill No. 5309, which obliges the UOC to change its name.As reported by the SPM, the head of the Legal Department of the UOC Archpriest Oleksandr bakhov said that any attempt by state authorities to force religious Association (Church) to change its name are illegal and violate international law.
