Epiphany told how the "raiders" of the UOC seize the parishes of the OCU.

The UOC seizes the OCU communities. Epiphany Dumenko stated this in an interview with DetectorUA.

According to him, people are shown "precedents of so-called seizures, but there are no seizures – they are seizing our parishes instead."

“In accordance with the legislation, each community has the right to make up their mind and change their jurisdiction. If a meeting has taken place and a decision has been made, and the majority is in favor of the transition, then this already comes into effect automatically and has legal force. So who are raiders? They (the UOC – Ed.) seize our community, which makes the decision to join the OCU. Therefore, they are raiders who want to grab the communities of the OCU,” explained Dumenko.

The OCU, in turn, is in favor of it "to happen calmly, peacefully, with love," he added.

“We are not raiders,” summed up the head of the OCU.

In addition, Dumenko said that most of the monks of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra stand for the OCU.
