Ecumenical Patriarchate reinstates Ukraine’s Patriarch Filaret, Archbishop Makariy

The schismatic Patriarch of Kyev, Filaret, and the schismatic Archbishop of Ukraine, Makariy, are as of today considered canonical hierarchs of the Orthodox Church

The two clerics, who are the heads of Ukraine’s two schismatic Churches, had made an appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarchate requesting their past convictions be re-assessed.

According to well-informed sources close to orthodoxia.info, the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate has accepted this appeal and restored them to canonical status.

The exact details and conditions of the decision remain unkown, as well as the number of hierarchs that will subsequently be recognized.

The official communiqué of the Ecumenical Patriarchate is yet to be issued.
