The District Administrative Court of Kyiv opened proceedings on the lawsuit of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate regarding the illegality of the state registration of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. This was reported by the synodal law department of the UOC-MP.
According to the report, the claim was filed against the Ministry of Culture and the state registrar – Communal enterprise “Center for Legal Aid and Registration”.
“The decision of the state registrar on the state registration of the creation of a legal entity under the name “Kyiv Metropolia of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Orthodox Church of Ukraine)” and the corresponding entry in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, Individual Entrepreneurs and Public Formations must be canceled by the court,” the UOC MP declared.
In addition, it is noted that the Kyiv branch of the UOC-MP is preparing to take part in the consideration of an administrative case. Recall that the decision of this court has stopped the renaming of UOC-MP to the Russian Orthodox Church.
