UCC, UAOC and KP

What do the UCC officially thinks those not mainstream Ukrainian Churches? They seem to cooperate and have very cordial relations (joint services etc.). On the other hand as those Churches are not in communion with almost anyone they are not included in the Orthodox-Catholic Dialogue.

Ukrainian Catholic Church.

Oh ok. I'm used to see the acronym as UGCC.

To answer your question, they cooperate because of their desire to preserve and support Ukrainian culture. At least that is how I see it.

That is why the three Orthodox churches sent reps to the Archbishop's enthronement and why they cooperate in North America as well.

As far as I know, the U[G]CC has never made any official statement about them.

To clarify regarding "joint services" ... this does not mean eucharistic concelebration.
