Zinkevich: OCU is more and more sympathetic to Filaret
"Hierarch" of the OCU Mikhail Zinkevich said that there is a growing tendency among his associates to support the head of the UOC-KP.
Among the “hierarchs” of the OCU, sympathy for the head of the Kyiv Patriarchate, Filaret Denisenko, is increasingly growing, said the “Metropolitan” of the newly created church structure Mikhail Zinkevich in an interview with the “Glavcom” news agency.
“There is a tendency among the metropolitans to support what the Honorary Patriarch Filaret says,” Zinkevich said.
According to him, Denisenko is right when he says that the OCU is the Church of Constantinople. Other questions raised by Filaret are also important for the “hierarchs” of the OCU. For example, these are the issues of the diaspora and the cooking of myrrh, which the OCU receives from Constantinople, Zinkevich noted.
However, the representatives of his structure are hiding from these problems in the hope that they will be resolved somehow. Everyone hid their "heads in the sand", including the current head of the OCU Epiphany, the "hierarch" believes.
As reported earlier, the head of the UOC-KP said that the OCU would no longer be recognized by any Local Church.
