abstract

The so-called ‘reunification council’, which in December 2018 gave birth to the new Orthodox Church of Ukraine, had as its objective the overcoming of the tripartite division of the country’s orthodoxy. The new ecclesiastical structure, recognized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate, should constitute the national Church of the Ukrainian state and contribute to the nation building process promoted by the Kiev leadership. In reality, all the contradictions related to the particular history of Ukrainian orthodoxy and its connection with Moscow emerged, while the division spread to the whole Orthodox world.
