The Ukrainian church calls for Kirill to be removed from office

(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 26 – The head of the Ukrainian Orthodox schismatic Church Epiphanius has announced that the ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew, and the heads of local churches, have been asked to remove the Russian patriarch Kirill from office, accusing him of heresy. This was reported by the Russian agency Tass and Ukrainska Pravda.

The accusation in particular is of having spread ethnophiletic heretical teachings, that is to say having given preference to national interests over the general ones of the church, specifies Tass.

A similar accusation was leveled by the Patriarchate of Constantinople against the Bulgarian Orthodox Church for its decision to proclaim autocephaly from the Church of Constantinople during the country’s struggle for independence from the Ottoman Empire in the second half of the 19th century.
