Chernivtsi: Kyiv-affiliated church leaders call on Moscow-affiliated clergy and believers to unite

In Chernivtsi, the local branch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Kyiv patriarchate) has sent an appeal to the Moscow-affiliated UOC to merge in a single home-based church, our correspondent reports Nov. 25.

The home-based church is a chance to save Ukraine from the Russian aggressors, the appeal runs. 

We have to start work towards the unification of Ukrainian believers, the appeal says.

The Moscow-affiliated UOC is in fact an agent of influence for Moscow. The church has strong positions in Eastern Ukraine.

There has been a wave of transitions in Central and Western Ukraine when local church communities voted to join the Kyiv-affiliated UOC.
