OCU members call on their “priests” and “bishops” to stop reading the UOJ publications from 2021.

Press Secretary of the Vinnytsia-Bar diocese of the OCU Sofroniy (Chuprina) called on the “hierarchs” of the OCU to unsubscribe from the UOJ groups and stop reading the publications of the resource. Chuprina wrote about this in a commentary to the FB post of "bishop" Gabriel (Krizina).

Krizina boasted that from January 1, 2021, he stopped reading the publications of the UOJ, as well as other resources supporting the UOC, as they "sow hatred and malice." Chuprina, in response, expressed the wish that from February 1 all OCU members unsubscribe from the UOJ and also complained that “entering their groups  no matter how strange it could be,” he found there “the subscriptions of believers, priests and even bishops of the OCU”.

The OCU cleric expressed his conviction that members of his structure should not read the UOJ and “boost its rating” with their views.

In response, Rostislav, one of the clergymen of the OCU of Zhytomyr in Myropol city, asked the question, "When will such a resource as the UOJ be created at the OCU?"

We will remind, earlier Gabriel (Krizina) said that while in the UAOC he was in a “gracious schism”, but then he was rehabilitated by Phanar “through repentance”.
