Ecumenical Patriarchate may withdraw Tomos only upon Ukrainian church’s initiative

112 Agency
Tomos on autocephaly of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine may be withdrawn by the Ecumenical Patriarchate. It can take place if the church insists on the amendments to the document as Radio Liberty reported citing Rostyslav Pavlenko, the Advisor of President Poroshenko.
“In Tomos and statute of the church, there is a point that all things which take place in the independent Ukrainian church should take place in accordance with Tomos and statute. If the conditions of Tomos are not violated, if the church does not reconsider it and amend it, any withdrawal can take place,” Pavlenko reported.

Earlier it became known, that there are misunderstandings between the Honorable Patriarch Filaret and Metropolitan Epiphany. In particular, Filaret seems to want to restore the structure of the liquidated UOC-KP and his influence on the church, while the circle of Metropolitan Epiphany is inclined to support the “Greek system” of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, proposed by Fanar.
