“On the morning of 8 November, more precisely at 7:50 local time, Archbishop Ambrose arrived in Minsk from Moscow. A few minutes later he was sitting in the plane from Minsk to Kiev and an hour later arrived in the Ukrainian capital, at 8:35 Moscow time”, – he said.
At the moment the rector of the Moscow theological Academy located on the territory of Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra. He came to take part in the negotiations on the follow-up of the UOC-MP and the Russian Orthodox Church on the background of the provision of the UOC-KP Thomas.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the guards would not let Ambrose in Ukraine due to the fact that he could not explain the reason for their visit.
