Filaret announces when SLC will get autocephaly

Kyiv Patriarchate’s chief Filaret

According to the head of the Kyiv Patriarchate, a Single Local Church can be granted autocephaly in July.

Filaret believes that Tomos and autocephaly for the SLC are to be bestowed by the Constantinople Patriarchate in the nearest time, as early as in the summer. It is reported by “24 channel”.

"It is hoped a lot that in the near future, I think, it will be in July, we will get Tomos and autocephaly," Filaret said.

Earlier, the head of the UOC-KP stated that the condition for autocephaly is to deprive the UOC of its name.

Not so long ago Filaret declared that the Kyiv Patriarchateis not willing to be under Constantinople. Upon that UOC-KP Spokesman Evstratiy Zoria underscored that schismatics see namely Filaret as a head of the budding SLC. As for the hierarchs of the Local Churches which do not recognize the Kyiv Patriarchate, they were accused by Zoria of corruption.

What do you think Poroshenko creates under the guise of the Single Local Church?
a new schismatic structure controlled by the state
an autocephalous Church, which Phanar will take under its omophorion
it does not matter – it will not work out anyway
