We recall, the Unification Assembly in Kyiv elected on December 15 head of the local Orthodox Church in Ukraine, Metropolitan of the former Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate Epifaniy (Dumenko). On the same day, the bishops approved the charter of the new church.

Practically all the hierarchs of the former Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate, the UAOC, and two bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate took part in the Assembly.
The next step for the final formation of the autocephalous Orthodox Church in Ukraine will be to conduct a joint service of Epifaniy with the Ecumenical Patriarch and receive Tomos about the autocephaly.
