Autocéphalie en Ukraine : Pavel Klimkin fait appel au Pape François et à la diaspora ukrainienne
Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavel Klimkin urged the Ukrainian diaspora to help create the Single Local Church and flew to the Vatican for help from Pope Francis.
Ukrainian believers need "help" in the creation of the Single Local Church, for which Klimkin is negotiating with representatives of Ukrainian organizations of Canada and the Vatican, reports Ukrinform.
"We really need to return the Single Local Church to believers, and this requires your help (Ukrainian organizations of Canada – Ed.). We have been working very long on this with the Ecumenical Patriarch. Of course, the impact on him from both the US and Canada is significant. Although we all say that politics is politics, and believers are believers, but let’s be honest: the Russian Church is used in Ukraine for political manipulation," the minister said.
