In order to correct the conflict situation that has developed now in the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (PCU), it is necessary to transfer the leadership of this structure to the head of the Kiev Patriarchate Filaret. This was told by the head of the former “Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church” (UAOC), Macarius in an interview with “24”

Filaret said earlier that his structure is being separated from the “new church”. In addition, it was decided at her meeting that the tomos of autocephaly does not correspond to the status of autocephalous churches and makes it dependent on Constantinople.
“But I am against, and other priests are against. No matter how deserving a person is, including Filaret, who is made deserved, ”the religious leader emphasized.
Macarius added that if Filaret had managed to subjugate the UAOC together with state power and deputies, then in 2018 he would have demanded from the Ecumenical Patriarchate only the patriarchal status of the “church” and appoint him the patriarch.
As a result, the head of the "autocephalous" concludes, Ukraine would not have received any tomos. According to him, the church should live a canonical life, regardless of who exactly is among its “bishops”.
And if someone allows himself something extra, then you need to give him a warning. And if it does not help, there may be other arguments that will put him in his place, Makarii summed up.
