Recall, October 11, at the Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, a decision was made to restore the stavropegic of the Constantinople Patriarchate in Kiev – “one of many stauropegic monasteries that existed here always.” 16 October, President Poroshenko intends to offer the Verkhovna Rada to pass St. Andrew’s Church in Kyiv for permanent use of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. In early November, St. Andrew’s Church moved to grant permanent use of the Ecumenical Patriarchate for worship and ceremonies.
