The Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) is appealing to be included into Patriarchate of Constantinople.
The respective request to Ecumenical Patriarchate Bartholomew has been accepted by the bishops' council.
The Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church is one of the branches of the Church of Kyiv. It currently has an irregular canonical status. De facto its status is autocephalous, but it is not recognized by the Ecumenical Orthodox Churches.
