      Metropolitan Volodymyr Assures that He Governs the Church
      2 March 2012, 09:35

      In an interview to Radio Freedom, Metropolitan Volodymyr, the head of
      the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP), said that he
      governs the church according to the established rules.

      “It is being governed by the ruling bishop, the Primate, that is by me,”
      said the metropolitan.

      He also stressed that he governs the Kyivan Eparchy. “The Kyivan Eparchy
      as well as all the last eparchies of the UOC are subject to the common
      laws governing the whole church. One cannot single out a particular
      eparchy enjoying autonomy. The final word rests with the governing
      bishop,” stated Metropolitan Volodymyr.

      Last October, the Primate was hospitalized. In the beginning of last
      December, he was transferred from the intensive care unit to a
      rehabilitation ward where he stays now.

      In February, a session of the Holy Synod of the UOC-MP was held despite
      the Primate’s prohibition. The Synod, in particular, decreed to dismiss
      the primate’s secretary, Archbishop Oleksandr Drabynko, from his
      positions in the church.
