Ukrainian President Petri Poroshenko addresses the Verkhovna Rada to create Ukrainian autocephaly.

As we reported, yesterday Poroshenko held the meeting with the primates of the Orthodox churches and accepted the appeal to Bartholomew, the Ecumenical Patriarch on the provision of the tome on the autocephaly for the Ukrainian church with the signs of all bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church – Kyiv Patriarchate and Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.

Since 90-s there are a few jurisdictions in Ukraine that call themselves Orthodox local and autocephaly Churches.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church – Moscow Patriarchate and  Metropolis of Bessarabia of the Romanian Orthodox Church have the canonical status. Ukrainian Orthodox Church – Kyiv Patriarchate is canonically not recognized.

Also, there is unrecognized Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.
