The Ukrainian Orthodox Church won’t hold the joint worship with the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, since it is a “non-canonical religious organization”, Head of the Synodal Information and Education Department of the UOC Archbishop Kliment claimed this in the commentary to TASS. 

‘We won’t hold divine services with the “new” church. If we had such services, then we would be the same schismatics as they are, and then the local church would not recognize us,’ he said.

Moscow/Russian church is NOT canonical "This year, celebrations were held in Kyiv for the 1,030th anniversary of the Baptism of Rus’. The Moscow Patriarchate wanted the celebration to be held in Moscow, but the head of the church in Constantinople refused, saying that the Baptism of Rus’ belongs to Kyiv. No church or city or nation existed in Moscow in 988. Moscow, as village, was first mentioned in 1147

Questions are now being raised about if the Moscow church itself ever received a “Tomos” of autocephaly. “Since it does not have a tomos, therefore, according to church canons, it is an absolutely illegal organization,” There is abundant evidence of the canonical standing of the Metropolitan of Kyiv, going back a millennium. But evidence of a canonical foundation of the Moscow Patriarchate apparently cannot be found."
