"Today yet another religious community of the Zdolbuniv area made a historic decision for itself and at a legal parish meeting, in accordance with its charter, decided to change its canonical and organizational subordination and to join the united local Orthodox Church of Ukraine. I am talking about the parish of the Elevation of the Holy Cross of Rivne diocese of the UPTs of the village of Kopytkovo, Zdolbuniv district," Kondrachuk noted.
A similar event was reported on Facebook by the Ukrainian people's deputy Andrei Lozovoi. "Only two communities transferred into the local church in Rivne oblast, Vladyka Ilarion reported.
