      Kirill said "arguments" against independent Ukrainian church


      Patriarch Kirill believes that all calls to autocephalia in Ukraine are based on political arguments.

      According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this answering the question of representatives of priesthood at the meeting with bishops and priests of Ukrainian Orthodox Church, lecturers and students of Kyiv seminaries and intelligentsia at Refectory church of Kyiv Pechersk Lavra.

      "The most irregular thing is the use of political ideology. All argumentation in favour of autocephalia is only political. It is said in one of the slogans – "Independent Ukraine has to have Ukrainian church", "Why we have to submit to Moscow Patriarch?" and others", said Patriarch Kirill.
