We will remind, earlier theologians of Constantinople on the basis of analysis of archival data proved that the Ecumenical Patriarchate never officially transferred the Kyiv Metropolitanate to Moscow. The Russians have actually seized her in 1686. This Kiev Metropolitanate was not part of the Russian Orthodox Church and its metropolitans received the blessing of the Ecumenical Patriarch.

Also, the Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate decided on the resumption of the canonical status of the primates of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC KP) and Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC).
