The Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Metropolitan Epifaniy, said that the transfer of Christmas celebration date from January 7 to December 25 is possible if most Ukrainians are ready for this. He said this at a briefing after the Bishops' Council, RBC-Ukraine informs.

“But now we see that not everyone supports this idea. This is especially true for the Western region. Therefore, we will continue to carry out educational work, and when we see that the vast majority of Orthodox Christians are ready to change the calendar, we will carry out a calendar reform,” Epifaniy emphasized.

He added that the Church cannot put such an issue on the agenda now.

 
Earlier, Metropolitan Epifaniy announced the legal liquidation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC-KP) and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC). This took place at the Orthodox Church of Ukraine Council in Kyiv, the department for external relations of UOC reported on Facebook.
