Agreement between Ukraine and the Ecumenical Patriarchate is not a creation of the Ukrainian Church, said the head of the Synodal Department for Church and society and the media of the Moscow Patriarchate, Vladimir Legoyda in his telegram channel.

he said, quoted by RIA Novosti, some Ukrainian media were quick to call the signing of the cooperation agreement the establishment of a new Church.

"All of these "concordats" the Ukrainian authorities with Panaram do not change anything for the millions of believers in Ukraine," — said Legoyda.

Earlier in the day the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew signed an agreement on cooperation and interaction. Poroshenko called this document the completion of the process of giving autonomy to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Patriarch Bartholomew also stated that "this agreement will help to expedite the granting of autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine."
