About UOC-MP
« on: June 09, 2013, 03:16:27 PM »
Hi all. I'm wondering if any of you can help me. Today I came across this statement on Wikipedia:

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church or UOC, sometimes abbreveated as UOC(MP), operates as an autonomous church under the Moscow Patriarchate and also is not canonically recognised within the Eastern Orthodox Communion.[21]

The part I highlighted came as a bit of a shock -- it basically goes against what I have always heard from the Orthodox. The link provided is:
of which I read the google-translation, but I can't tell from that whether Wikipedia's conclusion follows or not. Can anyone provide info (either directly or by a reference)?
