Ukraine's President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky made a positive impression on the head of the recently-created Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epifaniy when the two met for the first time.
Speaking with Espreso.tv, Epifaniy said: "Yes, I had my first personal meeting with President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky. He made a very positive impression on me as a person. He enjoyed a substantial vote of confidence in the Ukrainian society as people have high expectations."
According to the cleric, during their meeting, the two discussed issues of further cooperation.
"We spoke of how we would be cooperating further. As the Ukrainian church, we will support both the president and the Ukrainian state in constructive actions. On all that will concern unity and development of the Ukrainian state, we will work as partners. I believe that in the future, we will do everything to ensure that these relations remain good," added the OCU head.
