In Lviv, by decision of the city council, the work of the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) was banned. This was stated by the deputy from the party “European Solidarity” Yuriy Lomaga, RIA Novosti reports.
Lomaga said that it was he who prepared the decree on the ban on the work of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, as well as the Ukrainian orthodox Greek Catholic Church “Dognala group”; in the Lviv city territorial community. He thanked the deputies who supported the initiative.
In May, Metropolitan Onuphry of Kyiv and All Ukraine said that local authorities had recorded more than 20 illegal decisions to ban or restrict the work of religious communities of the UOC. More than four dozen raider seizures of churches of the UOC and more than 15 cases of confrontations and typos of churches have been recorded.
Earlier, Patriarch Kirill ruled out the division of the Orthodox people of the Russian Federation and Ukraine. He noted that the Russian Orthodox Church is sympathetic to the decision of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which declared independence from the Moscow Patriarchate.
