There were almost no parishioners at the service led by Patriarch Bartholomew in Kyiv except for the OCU “hierarchs”, state security officers, journalists and guests.

On August 21, 2021, Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople officiated the vespers in St. Andrew's church in Kyiv, practically “free” of parishioners.

A video of the vespers of the head of Phanar was published on the Facebook page “Stavropegia of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Ukraine”.

In addition to Patriarch Bartholomew, the church was attended by “hierarchs” of the OCU, state security officers, journalists and guests. There were practically no ordinary believers of the newly created religious structure in the temple.

One of the Facebook users wrote under the video with the divine service of the head of Phanar: “But there are so many believers there. A dime a thousand. More a dime than a thousand."

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that after his meeting with the VR Chairperson, the head of Phanar was taken out of the Verkhovna Rada through the courtyard.
