Vatutine City Council сalls on Rada to ban UOC
The mayor said that one UOC church in Vatutine "transferred" to the OCU, the rest are in the stage of "transition".
The mayor of Vatutine in the Cherkasy region, Oleksandr Zaborovets, said that the city council deputies appealed to the Verkhovna Rada and the National Security and Defence Council with a request to ban the activities of the UOC, reports ukrinform.ua.
"I consider the decision to be right because the Moscow Church and Patriarch Kirill have finally compromised themselves in Ukraine. Therefore, we almost unanimously (one deputy abstained) approved this appeal to colleagues from the Verkhovna Rada. As for Vatutine, one church transferred from the Moscow church to the jurisdiction of the OCU almost immediately after the war began. The rest are in the stage of transition," Zaborovets said.
As earlier reported, the Smila City Council demanded that "the legal registration of the Moscow Church be cancelled”.
