Filaret: the task of the Church and the authorities — to support the unity of Ukraine, and the election of the minor

The task of the Church and politics — to maintain the unity of the Ukrainian state, despite the efforts of the aggressor to destabilize Ukrainian society.

This was stated on Thursday, the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyivan Patriarchate (UOC-KP), Patriarch of Kyiv and all Rus-Ukraine Filaret at the meeting of the Ukrainian Council of Churches and religious organizations (AUCCRO), reports UKRINFORM.

«Now, when the aggressor saw that weapon he can’t take Ukraine, directs its efforts to destabilize Ukrainian society from within. And so our challenge is to maintain the unity of the Ukrainian people. As the main objective and all the politicians. Because not everyone is aware what is the most important for Ukraine at this moment: early elections or the protection of the Ukrainian state. Protection of the Ukrainian state should come first, and seats in Parliament is secondary. Because if we don’t save the Ukrainian state, in which Parliament will you sit?» he said.

Moreover, Filaret stressed the need to overcome the «internal» enemy — corruption.

We will remind, on November 21, the third anniversary of the Maidan Patriarch Filaret appealed to the authorities and called on all political forces to fight for the sake of Ukraine, not for the sake of their place in Ukraine.
