The UOC-KP plans through court to declare unlawful the decisions of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine on cancelling the statutes of the Kiev Patriarchate.

The meeting of the Kiev District Administrative Court on the claim of the Kiev Patriarchate of the UOC-KP against the Ministry of Culture takes place on Tuesday, August 27, 2019. This was reported on the page of the liquidated religious organization on Facebook.

“The laws of Ukraine do not provide for such a procedure as the abolition of the Statutes of religious associations and religious centers. The statutes of legal entities lose their force only as a result of the procedure for terminating these legal entities,” the organization’s press service said in the message.

The UOC-KP emphasizes that they consider the actions of the Ministry of Culture in relation to their religious organization “illegal, unlawful, violating the rights of the Church”, and ask in their lawsuit “to cancel the Order of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine No. 54 of 01/30/2019 in paragraph 2 on the loss of effect of the Order dated June 12, 2017 No. 505 and Order dated July 08, 2016 No. 518 ”.

“We believe that such decisions of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine are the implementation of the political order of the former top officials of Ukraine for the destruction of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate, the only one independent from religious centers located outside Ukraine,” resumed the UOC-KP.

As reported earlier, on August 27, 2019, representatives of the UOC-KP announced a civil disobedience campaign in connection with the liquidation of the Kiev Patriarchate by the Ministry of Culture.
