This guy claims to have been ordained by him. Apparently he's from the Ukrainian Orthodox Autocephalous Church (UOAC).

Apparently Archbishop once was a member of the UAOC under Met Mefodiy but split from him in the late 90's. He leads his own group in Poltava and Kharkiv and has maybe 20-30 parishes. From what I have heard of him, he is very smart but believes the Ukrainian Orthodox Church should not have its own Patriarchate but (not under Kyrill, Filaret, or even Mefodiy) but rather wants to join directly with the EP as a diocese like the UOCUSA and UOCC have done.

http://www.day.kiev.ua/260396

from the above website,
In fact, the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) does not exist today. Following the death of Patriarch Dymytry it disintegrated from within, entangled in intrigues, secret ploys, revelations, longwinded declarations, and accusations of financial fraud. The strife within the UAOC seems to have reached its apogee. However, this is a misleading impression, because the situation is aggravated with each passing day, much to the delight of those opposed to autocephaly.

For some time, the squabbles among UAOC hierarchs were hidden from public view. Now they have been laid bare and reached a stage close to mutual anathemas. Recently, Metropolitan Mefody (Kudriakov) has banned the communion with Archbishop Ihor (Isichenko), turning to the episcopate with a statement: “By his actions Archbishop Ihor causes strife and schismatic sentiments within the church, violates the resolutions of Ecumenical Councils and the UAOC Charter.” He further insisted that Archbishop Ihor publicly repent.

On his part, Archbishop Ihor accused the Metropolitan of disregarding the authority of American Metropolitan Kostiantyn, assuming the title of His Most Holiness, calling unauthorized uncanonical assemblies, etc. These violations “have placed Metropolitan Mefody outside the UAOC.” The names of the Metropolitan and a few other bishops who follow him are no longer mentioned during divine services (though it is not clear who will now be remembered in UAOC churches, since all high clergymen have been condemned by one side or the other).

Strange as it may sound, the church games of high UAOC priests have also involved the notorious Melnychenko tapes. Thus the All-Ukrainian Fraternity of the Apostle Andrew of the UAOC made a quite interesting conclusion based on the conversation between Metropolitan Kiril of the Russian Orthodox Church and President Kuchma allegedly recorded in the president’s office. It turns out that Moscow Metropolitan Kiril was behind the non-recognition by the Ukrainian government of American Metropolitan Kostiantyn as Metropolitan of the UAOC.

The quote from the newspaper is from 2003.  Aside from the political issues, I believe Archbishop Ihor Isachenko is quite a scholar.  He visited Canada many years ago and gave a serious of lectures at various universities.

So it looks like he isn't a member of any synod but a kind of self sufficient, isn't he?

As far as I know yes.  But then I have not kept up to date.  Check his Facebook page.
