Worshippers of Ukraine’s Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate gathered for Divine Liturgy in the Ukrainian capital. About 3,000 police maintain public order near the St. Volodymyr’s Cathedral in Kyiv, where the service takes place on the occasion of the anniversary of Christianization of Kyiv Rus.

The holy mass is conducted by Filaret, the Most Reverend Patriarch of Kyiv and the head of the Ukraine’s Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate.
