 If UOC (MP) refuses to rename itself, it will lose its legal status, - Filaret

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchy will lose its legal entity right unless it renames itself as Russian Orthodox Church.

As reported by Censor.NET, former head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchy said this in an interview for TSN.Tyzhden.

"We completely reject violence. Verkhovna Rada adopted a legal mechanism of conversion into Orthodox Church in Ukraine (OCU). They [the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchy] have to convert according to this law," said Filaret.

He added that in case UOC (MP) refuses to rename itself as Russian Orthodox Church, it will lose its legal entity right and ability to rent Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra from the state.

"This is a Ukrainian shrine which has to belong to Ukrainian, not Russian church," Filaret concluded.
