    U.S. Embassy in Ukraine congratulate OCU Primate on third anniversary of church autocephaly

    The Embassy of the United States of America in Ukraine has congratulated the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epifaniy of Kyiv and All Ukraine, on the third anniversary of the granting of a tomos of autocephaly of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

    The diplomats published the greeting on the embassy’s social media.

    “Congratulations to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine on the third anniversary of receiving the Tomos of Autocephaly! Ukrainians should be free to worship as they choose, without external influence,” the brief message says.

    It should be recalled that on January 5, 2019, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew signed the tomos of autocephaly of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

    The most precious thing that has been achieved thanks to the tomos is overcoming the split in Ukrainian Orthodoxy, which had been cutting the church body of Ukraine for 30 years, according to the Bishop of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Oleksandr (Drabynko)
