The Ministry of justice of Ukraine has deprived the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP) the right to use the buildings of the Pochayiv monastery in Ternopil region. This was reported on the website of the Department.

We are talking about the Dormition and Trinity cathedrals, monastic, Episcopal house, the bell tower and gate building. According to the Deputy Minister of justice Elena Sukmanova, registration of rights of use of the complex took place with violations of the law. “That is why the decision of registration was canceled and the official who accepted it, had blocked access to the registry of rights to immovable property”, — said Sukmanova.

On November 16 it became known that the police of Ukraine opened criminal proceedings on the fact of transfer of buildings of the Pochayiv Lavra in the use of the UOC-MP. The proceedings began with a complaint from the Ministry of culture to the Ministry of justice on the actions of the state Registrar. He passed the buildings in the monastery for the use of the UOC-MP, what allegedly caused damage to the rights and interests of the Ministry of culture.
