Overcoming schism in Ukraine is a duty of the entire Orthodox community, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church believes

Kiev, October 14, Interfax - The Ukrainian Orthodox Church believes that the entire Orthodox community should solve the problem of schism in Ukrainian Orthodoxy.

"Settlement of the Ukrainian question is a duty of the entire Orthodox world," head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Department for External Relations Archimandrite Kirill (Hovorun) said at a press conference in Kiev.

According to him, All-Orthodox meeting held in Istanbul "didn't settle the Ukrainian question, but the entire Orthodox community is now discussing it".

The priest stressed that the Ukrainian Church strived to unite at a time of political divisions and said politics was one of the most important factors which had divided Orthodox Church in Ukraine in the 1990s.

The priest believes, "when the Church bases its life on ethno-political ideas, it leads to the contradictions that are tearing Ukrainian society."


Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.
