The return of the church to Ukraine is the geopolitical victory of Petro Poroshenko over Vladimir Putin, which will allow getting rid of the agents of the hostile special services inside the country as political scientist Volodymyr Makarovsky reported on Facebook.
“The fact that the president succeeded to achieve the autocephaly for our church is the most important event for the country! I am sure that in the recent future our children will read about the Tomos for Ukraine in the history books,” Makarovsky said.
According to him, the receiving of the Tomos by Ukraine is the geopolitical collapse of Putin beaten by Poroshenko. Thus, the official recognition of the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Church is the loss of the possibility to influence the minds of the faithful Ukrainians by Moscow.
“Receiving of the Tomos is the salvation of Ukraine from the “state security” yoke of Kremlin as there is no secret that many pseudo-priests of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) were regular and non-staff KGB agents and now FSB. Historically, the ROC takes its history from the times of Stalin. Those priests who were not repressed became the part of the Soviet Special Services. Not accidentally, Stalin presented limo to Patriarch Alexey in 1949. It is the same with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Moscow Patriarchate. So, Ukraine gets rid of the agents of the hostile special services by the autocephaly,” he is sure.
Makarovsky emphasized that the receiving of the Tomos by Ukrainian Church is the restoration of the historic justice. Now, the Ukrainian nation is in the process of the large-scale acquisition of the lost state identity.
“We wrest our history with fights and the time of the church has come a long time ago. As when Kyiv Prince Volodymyr baptized Rus’ the pagan idols stood in Moskovia. Now, Moscow unjustly tries to steal Volodymyr and erect the monuments to him. But it is our history and our right for independence, including the issues of religion. It is very important that each faithful Ukrainian know that Kyiv got the anointing first,” he concluded.
On October 11, the Synodus lifted the anathema from Filaret, head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyivan Patriarchate, and Makariy, Primate of Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church. Filaret stated that the united Jubilee Bishops' Council would take place soon to create a unified Ukrainian local church.
In addition, the Ecumenical Patriarchate recognized Russia’s Orthodox Church annexation of Kyiv metropole in 1686.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew signed an agreement on cooperation between Ukraine and the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Turkey.
