Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate will address the Verkhovna Rada with a request to change the name of ‘Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Moscow Patriarchate’ to ‘Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine’.
Patriarch Filaret of Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate announced this, as The Voice of Ukraine reports.

As it was reported earlier, the Ecumenical Patriarchate decided to grant the autocephaly for Ukraine's Orthodox Church. The respective document appeared on the official website of the Patriarchate. This outraged the Russian Orthodox Church, which already promised 'a tough and decisive response.'  
The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate struggled for the autocephaly since the country gained independence in 1991. For his firm stance in this regard, Patriarch Filaret, the current leader of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate was stripped of his orders in 1992, as the Russian Orthodox Church imposed the anathema on him. Most recently, the Ecumenical Patriarchate lifted it from him. This decision, and the subsequent decision to grant Ukraine Tomos outraged the Russian Orthodox Church, which already promised 'a tough and decisive response.'  
The Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople can provide the Tomos on autocephaly to Ukrainian Orthodox Church at Synod that will take place in the second half of November 2018.
