According to Greek media, during a liturgy in the capital of Egypt, Patriarch Theodore II commemorated Sergei (Epiphany) Dumenko as head of the Local Church.

On November 8, 2019, during the Divine Liturgy in honor of the feast of the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael and other celestial forces ethereal, Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria commemorated in the reading of the diptych Sergei Petrovich Dumenko as head of the OCU. This was reported by the Greek agency "Romfea" with reference to its sources in Egypt.

It is also reported that in the near future an official communiqué of the Patriarchate of Alexandria will appear in this regard.

P.S. Here is a video of the liturgy, where Patriarch Theodore, among other Primates, read out the name of Epiphany Dumenko (after minute 45).

We recall that during his last visit to Ukraine and a joint service with the Primate and hierarchs of the UOC, Patriarch Theodore declared that it was the UOC that is the only canonical Church in Ukraine, called on the believers to be faithful to His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry, and also promised to do everything possible to inform the Primate of all Local Churches about the real situation in Ukraine.
