Vadym Novynskyi's Comment on the Report at the PACE Session
I am in Strasbourg at the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

We have prepared a report on the unsound situation surrounding the Ukrainian church.

The Government's persistent interference in the affairs of the Church including attempts by politicians to outlaw the largest religious confession (the Ukrainian Orthodox Church), the constant attacks on bishops, the submission of draft laws discriminating against the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to the Verkhovna Rada – this is the contemporary reality in Ukraine.

Vadym Novynskyi Congratulated Patriarch Ilia on the 39th Anniversary of Enthronement
On 24 December, a delegation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) headed by Metropolitan Onufriy of Kiev and All Ukraine arrived in Tbilisi. They celebrated the 39th Anniversary of the Enthronement of Patriarch Ilia. Being a member of the delegation, Vadym Novynskyi congratulated His Holiness on the occasion of this great date.

For the entire Orthodox world, Patriarch Ilia is a genuine example of true service to God and mankind. His Holiness very warmly welcomed the UOC delegation. He expressed his support to His Beatitude Onufriy in these difficult times for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and said that he always prayed for His Beatitude, as well as for our Church and Ukraine.

Vadym Novynskyi met with His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem
Restoration of the Aedicule (Edicule) in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is nearing completion. The Aedicule, a small domical chapel in the centre of the Temple's Rotunda, contains the Holy Sepulchre – the most hallowed Christian shrine. World renowned experts have been involved in the restoration. The most advanced, and in many ways unique, technologies are being applied. The repairs are due to be completed by Easter 2017.

Vadym Novynskyi discussed moderate participation in the reconstruction of the Aedicule with His Holiness Patriarch Theophilos.

Vadym Novynskyi: the Sole Purpose of the Religious Procession is Peace and Order in the Country
The Kiev Holy Cross procession is an entirely non-political event. Since time immemorial, when countries have faced crises and instability, the faithful have gathered together for religious processions. And now with the ongoing fratricidal war in our country (yet to be resolved by politicians), the Orthodox Church has blessed this religious procession for peace and reconciliation in Ukraine. Symbolically, the pilgrimage will begin from two opposite corners of the country: one group will start at the Sviatohirsk Lavra in the East of Ukraine, and the other from the Pochaiv Lavra in the West. They will converge on Kyiv for a joint procession, which symbolises the unification of our country.
