On November 20, the vicar of the Kyiv Metropolis of the UOC, Bishop Victor of Baryshevka, took part in a meeting of representatives of the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organizations with the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmyhal, where he called on the leadership of the country's executive power to prevent the propaganda of the LGBT ideology.
The bishop noted that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church will not deviate from the Gospel teaching for the sake of sin, reports the UOC Synodal Information and Educational Department.
