The OCU head was concelebrated by Metropolitan Alexander (Drabinko), banned by the UOC Synod of from ministry.

In his speech, the President said that “Tomos is a document of the millennium”. He also thanked the Vinnitsa residents for supporting Metropolitan Simeon.

“But for your support, no administrative methods would have made it possible. I came to thank you for our dear Vinnichina ranking first today in the number of parishes that have decided to join our Church,” Poroshenko said.

A thanksgiving moleben was held in the square in front of the cathedral.
 

As the UOJ reported, the pre-election campaign trip of Petro Poroshenko with the Tomos began on January 10 with a thanksgiving service for autocephaly and the OCU formation in the city of Rovno.
