The Greek synodals did not anathematize the Old Calendarists of Greece who'd joined the UOC-KP, as requested by the Dumenkovites.

On February 7, 2022, the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church considered the appeal of Epifaniy Dumenko on the illegality of the UOC-KP "hierarchs", reports the Greek edition Romfea.

During the meeting of the synod, Dumenko’s report by was read out, in which he said that the “synod” of the OCU decided that “all members of the Church of Ukraine under the leadership of the former Metropolitan of Kyiv Filaret (Denisenko), in violation of the Holy Canons and the Statute of the OCU, with no canonical approval by its Holy Synod, were non-canonically ordained ‘bishops’, including ‘bishops’ who came from the Old Calendar schism in Greece.”

Dumenko called the Old Calendarists of Greece, who had earlier joined Filaret Denisenko, “imposters” and assured the GOC synod that neither they nor all members of the UOC-KP “receive any canonicity from the OCU and in no way can be admitted to church communion.”

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that the OCU urged the Greek Church to anathematize the Greek "hierarchs" of the UOC-KP.

No, this is the expansion of the ROC into the territory of the Church of Alexandria
