Ukrainian Galician party demands to expel Metropolitan Mokshitsky from Ukraine

The Ukrainian Galician Party issued on June 7 an official statement demanding that Archbishop Metropolitan Mieczyslav Mokshitsky of Lvov Roman Catholic Church be personified non grata on the territory of Ukraine. The occasion was a recent statement by the Archbishop of "the sin of the genocide that lies on the Ukrainian people." This is reported by RISU.

"We believe that a person who makes political statements hostile to our people, sows hostility between Ukrainians and Poles, and has neither the moral nor civil right to govern the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine, and as a Polish citizen he must be deprived of the right to be on the territory of our country, "the UGP statement, published on the official party website, says.

The reason for such a statement was an interview to the Polish Catholic weekly Niedziela, where Archbishop Mieczyslaw Mokshitsky stated that "the sin of genocide still lies on the Ukrainian people". It was about the Volyn tragedy.

Archbishop Mieczyslaw Mokshitsky is a citizen of Poland and heads Lvov-based Archdiocese of the RCC since 2007. In March 2013, he refused to sign a joint statement of Greek Catholic and Roman Catholic bishops on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Volyn tragedy, laying the blame for the tragedy only on Ukrainians.\

The Ukrainian Galician party was registered in 2014, represented by deputies of local councils in Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk and Ternopol regions.
