Archbishop of Chernihiv and Nizhyn, the spokesman of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate, Yevstratiy Zorya, said that the Verkhovna Rada should adopt a law according to which the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate should change the official name to the Russian Orthodox Church, Ukrainska pravda reports.

According to him, after receiving  tomos, the local church will officially be called the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and this is not the desire of the UOC-KP or the UAOC or else, but is a decision that was discussed and approved by representatives of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
