President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has decided to sign a law granting religious organizations the right to establish educational institutions. He stated this during a meeting with leaders of churches and religious organizations, reported the press service of the President.
Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate, Patriarch of Kyiv and All Rus-Ukraine Filaret conveyed the letter to the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and religious organizations, which, in particular, requested to speed up the approval of the Ministry of Defense regulations on chaplaincy.
Poroshenko, in turn, instructed the Ministry of Defense to speed up the development of provisions for chaplaincy in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other law enforcement agencies. "For me it is important that the representatives of each church would be among the chaplains. Everyone has his own way to God. I very much hope that you will join the formation, and the corresponding instructions will be provided to the Minister of Defense ", - said the President.
