During a meeting of the Uzhgorod city council, members of the non-canonical Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox church start a fight with canonical Orthodox believers
March 30, 2017 – A fight was provoked between members of the non-canonical Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) and the canonical Orthodox believers of the Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP). The dispute arose over the question dividing land between the two respective communities.
Members of the UAOC claim that the land belongs to them, without presenting any proper ownership documents. Some members of the UAOC claim that they were brought to the session under false pretexts.
The Union of Orthodox Journalists is monitoring the situation.
