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:

Quote
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:
http://risu.org.ua/ua/index/all_news/orthodox/orthodox_world/44182/
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)?

RISU tends to miss the truth in such cases.
