Ukrainian independence has become stronger after the receipt of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (PCU) of autocephaly. On Sunday, January 13, said the President of the Republic Petro Poroshenko in his Twitter account.
According to the President, the new Church became the “spiritual Foundation” of the Ukrainian state, and its production is an important step towards the conquest of that country’s independence. “This is not the end but only the beginning,” — said the Ukrainian leader.
