Kyiv Patriarch Filaret...

Kyiv Patriarch Filaret refuted the words of head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill about existence of united Local Orthodox church in Ukraine.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Filaret said this delivering a speech during the festive mass near the monument to Saint Volodymyr at Volodymyrska Hill on the occasion of baptism of Rus-Ukraine Day.

“Speaking about united local church in Ukraine, Kirill meant Russian Orthodox Church, but Ukraine has to have its own Local Orthodox church”, Filaret noted.

”Everything based on untruth, will be destroyed sooner or later because the God’s patience may give out”, the Patriarch noted.
