In a Temple of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Canada a Portrait of Symon Petliura Was Hung on the Wall

What beauty… in St. Andrew’s cathedral of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Canada, which is in the jurisdiction of Ecumenical patriarchate, a portrait of Petliura was hung up in the building of the temple. You can say hello to the more than 50 American senators who talk about the growth of anti-Semitism in Ukraine – after all, it is precisely the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Canada that most of all deals with issues of the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Church since 2014.

For the record: the temple of Saint apostle Andrew is a cathedral, and a bishop who is in the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical patriarchate permanently serves there – the native of Lvov Andrey Peshko.

It remains only to draw Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevych with nimbuses and to hang up their portraits on an iconostasis.
