His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kyiv and All Ukraine ranked 15th in the TOP-100 people and phenomena rating of the Vesti media holding.

“The modest and ascetic metropolitan is a role model: having withstood the crisis years of 2018-2019 under his auspices, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has tempered and retained its fortitude,” says the comments of the rating creators.

The head of the UGCC Sviatoslav Shevchuk took 58th place, the chief rabbi of Kyiv and Ukraine Moshe Reuven Azman – 62nd place, the head of the OCU Epiphany Dumenko – 63rd place.
