Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has signed the law on the transfer of St. Andrew’s Church to Ecumenical Patriarchate. This information was published on the website of Ukraine’s parliament.

St. Andrew’s Church was passed to the Ecumenical Patriarchate for worshipping, religious ceremonies and processions. The building itself will remain a state property. The Ecumenical Patriarchate, in turn, is obliged to observe the laws on protection of cultural heritage of Ukraine.
