In Vinnitsa, near the mayor's city hall, priests of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine (formerly MPC-MP) organized a rescue, which they call "prayer stands". The reason for the action was their dissatisfaction with the actions of the Metropolitan Vinnitsa and Barski Simeon, who was again brought to court as president of the Vinnitsa Diocese. This is stated in the TSN plot.
Recall that the priest moved to the newly created PKD in mid-December. Along with him – and the paraffin of the Cathedral Transfiguration of the Savior.
In response, the synod of the Russian Orthodox Church deprived Simeon of the position of the head of the diocese. At the same time, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew releases the priest from any punishment of the MP-MP.
To prevent the Russian church from choosing a council, Simeon filed a lawsuit for restitution of rights.
But in Chernivtsi, their colleagues led the rally of believers. Under the building of the District State Administration, together with the herd, they asked to give up the transition of the temples to the HCA.
Below the building, MP's supporters gathered from across the region. Some traveled with their own transport, but for the majority they were preparing buses, on which they organized an organized way.
In Zasavavna, pilgrims prayed to the building of the district state administration, under the walls to which they opened the posters and began to sing prayers and demanded that they be given to the Ukrainian churches of the MP in the PLC.
Negotiations with local authorities, which continued during the rally, the priests are not satisfied.
At the same time, the action of supporters of the Moscow Patriarchate finds no support from the locals.
"What is going on here will not do anything. On the contrary, the opposition will intensify and I believe that the priests are to blame for this," one of the residents said.
"All the priests came and encouraged people against one another. It must not be this," the woman is bitter. In response, she hears from the MP's MPC "You are disagreements!"
We note that officials say that the decision to move the temples in a Ukrainian local church belongs to the community and can not be canceled.
As previously reported, in the near future, the legal registration of the UTS will be completed, in particular, the governing body will be registered – Kiev Metropolis.
Recall, on January 17, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law that regulates the transition of religious communities from one church to another. To make the transition, the coming of the church at a general meeting must support such a decision with at least two-thirds of the quorum, which must be registered in the statutes of each community.
