Germany has returned the letter of Russian Tsar Peter the Great on the order of Metropolitan Josaphat on Kyiv Metropolis, which was taken from Kyiv during World War II.  Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany Andry Melnyk reported that on Twitter.

“It is a really historic day. Germany returned the letter of Peter the Great  to Ukraine, which urges Metropolitan of Kyiv Josaphat not to favor to the Ecumenical Patriarch. But it did not work: it will familiarize with our Tomos soon,” he wrote.
