Archimandrite Kyrylo: Autocephaly in Ukraine Will Neutralize Kremlin Influence

Establishment of religious independence from Russia is a historical event

 
Independence of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church has become an important security issue after Russia launched aggressive actions against Ukraine, states Archimandrite Kyrylo (Hovorun), a professor of theology at the Loyola Maryamount University in Los Angeles, reports UNN.
“Kremlin exploited The Orthodox Church for serving political purposes, and autocephaly will neutralize this negative influence,” said Archimandrite Kyrylo.
He also added that “Hierarchs should lower their sights and create a new church that will contribute to the consolidation of Ukrainian society.”
