Tbilisi: Biased information about the position of the Georgian Church on the UOC’s autocephaly periodically appears in the Russian and Ukrainian media, and both sides are trying to use our position in their own way, ”information published by the Georgian Patriarchate reads.
“This fact occurred after the visit to the Georgian Patriarchate of the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine,” Ukrainian media reported that the Georgian Church supported the UOC’s autocephaly, which is not true.
At the meeting, the guest said that they are striving to get the Autocephaly of the Ukrainian United Church, which should be based on the demand and legitimacy of all other hierarchies, as well as those subordinate to the government and Metropolitan Onufry.
If this happens, it will be a pleasant event, but, as we mentioned, at this stage the process seems to be very difficult to achieve, so you need to be careful that the confrontation between the population does not occur and a more complicated process does not develop.
As for the position of the Georgian Church on this issue, it is unchanged, as we mentioned earlier: - until there is a final official decision, the Georgian Orthodox Church will refrain from making any assessments from Constantinople and the ROC based on the norms of church law. ” This was said in a statement.
