In this regard we would like to assure you that the induction of
the Ukrainian communities into the canonical order of the Orthodox
Church by receiving them under the omophorion of the Ecumenical
Patriarch will, we believe, finally prove to be beneficial for the relationship
between the Most Holy Church of Russia and the faithful in
Ukraine. This is so because on the one hand those received were
obligated to formally declare that they will not seek autocephaly of the
Ukrainian Church, or event a part of it, through know methods employed
by the "autocephalists" who operate in every way possible. On
the other hand, it is no longer possible for them to cooperate or to
commune with schismatic Ukrainian groups which are out of communion
with the Orthodox Church without bearing harm to themselves,
provided the canonical principle "one who receives communion with
another who is out ofcommunion finds oneself also out ofcommunion"
is still valid for them.
Basically the EP and Moscow wheeling and dealing, the letter clearly states that by accepting the UOC in the USA, one of the conditions is that they would renounce Autocephally or help the autocephalists in Ukraine. THE EP GETS THE UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX IN THE DIASPORA AND MOSCOW GETS THE UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX IN UKRAINE AND THE EP STAYS OUT THE BUSINESS OF UKRAINE AS LONG AS MOSCOW STAYS OUT OF THE BUSINESS OF THE EP'S UKRAINIAN DIOCESE.
