American diplomats congratulated the OCU on the anniversary of the Tomos granted and reiterated their "support Ukrainians’ ability to worship as they choose".

On January 6, 2020, the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine congratulated the OCU on the anniversary of the receipt of the Tomos.

“We congratulate the Orthodox Church of Ukraine on the one-year anniversary of the Tomos of Autocephaly being granted by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. We reiterate our support for Ukrainians’ ability to worship as they choose, free from external interference,” the message reads in the English and Ukrainian languages on the embassy’s Twitter page.

Earlier, the head of the OCU Epiphany Dumenko said that the United States did not put pressure on the Local Churches in the recognition of the OCU.
