      Patriarch Kirill Awards Leader of "Political Orthodoxy" Condemned by
      Synod of UOC-MP
      31 January 2013

      Patriarch Kirill of Moscow awarded with a Patriarchal letter the leader
      of the Orthodox Brotherhood of Oleksandr Nevskyi and the Orthodox Choice
      organization, Yurii Yegorov who is known in Ukraine not only as an
      adherent of excommunicated Valentyn Lukianyk (and previously, Valerii
      Kaurov) but also as a person criticizing the “ecumenical” and
      “modernist” policy of Patriarch Kirill himself. So reported Religion in
      Ukraine.

      The award was presented on 30 December, 2012, at a meeting of Orthodox
      community in Kyiv with the participation of 80 Orthodox activists who
      traditionally represent the “political Orthodoxy,” an internal Church
      opposition which has resisted the “orange policy” of the leadership of
      the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP) in the recent
      years.

      According to the Russians in Ukraine web site, before the beginning of
      the meeting, the supporter of Yurii Yegorov, Head of the “Union of Free
      Cossacks,” Oleksii Selivanov presented the award to Y. Yegorov on the
      instruction of Patriarch Kirill. According to the address, the letter
      was presented for “contribution in the work of strengthening the
      traditional spiritual and cultural values of the peoples of Russia and
      Ukraine.”

      At the same time, the activity of Yegorov in the recent years was
      criticised by the Synod of UOC-MP as destructive and harmful for the
      Orthodox Church.
