“I can’t predict the future, but I’m sure it will happen. Ptsu has all the opportunities and conditions to acquire the status of a Patriarchate, but first there needs to be a process of profound Association. That is supposed to unite not only the former UOC-KP and the UAOC, as well as hierarchs and clergy of the Russian Orthodox Church, which today is in Ukraine. When this global process will take place, then I am sure that the Ukrainian Church will be able to appeal to Constantinople and the Ecumenical Patriarchate will be ready to consider this issue. Constantinople, of course, willing to talk about it”

However, for this, you will need to make changes to Tomos, who on 6 January received the delegation in Istanbul.
