Poroshenko turns to Patriarch Irinej of Serbia for support

Meeting of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko with Patriarch Irinej of Serbia

The President of Ukraine, in the framework of his official visit to Belgrade, met with the Patriarch of Serbia.

The head of the Ukrainian state expressed hope that the Serbian Orthodox Church has supported and will further support Ukraine, reports the press-service of the President.

Poroshenko called on Patriarch Irinej to pray for peace and noted that Ukraine stands for the territorial integrity of Serbia.

In June 2018, the Primate of the Serbian Orthodox Church was placed in Mirotvorets databse ”as a perpetrator of crime against the national secutiry of Ukraine” http://spzh.news/en/news/53726-patriarkha-serbskogo-irineja-vnesli-v-bazu-mirotvorca. 
The website Mirotvorets (Peacemaker") reports that "the Serbian Orthodox Church publicly voiced a categorical rejection of the demand of Kiev to grant autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church."

"Now the martyred Ukrainian Church – where the Holy Prince Vladimir baptized the people of Holy Rus - is profaned by the sacrilege of dissenters, by violence and bloodshed," Patriarch Irinej said at the awarding ceremony of the International Public Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Nations at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow."Anyone who helps the Ukrainian schismatics is the enemy not only to the Russian Church and the Russian world, but also to all Orthodox Slavic peoples and the entire Orthodox world."
