Another Ukrainian MP Anatoliy Matvienko said in the Declaration the Church of the assumption of the blessed virgin Mary in the village Byrlivka near the city of Bershad, Vinnytsia region. As reports a site “Left coast”, the MP built it himself and in the summer of 2016, decided to give Bershadskaya city Council, allowing the use of the temple for worship of any denomination “to create a Single local Ukrainian Church.”
By the way, this caused conflict with the priests of the Moscow Patriarchate, which for more than a year served in this Church. The request of the Metropolitan of Tulchyn and Bratslav Ionafan to pass the Church in the gift of the Patriarchate of Moscow City Council Bershad rejected. That same summer, the Verkhovna Rada appealed to the Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew with a request to grant autocephaly of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine (independence from the Moscow Patriarchate). Members were asked to “annul the act of 1686 (on the transfer of the Kyiv metropolis in the canonical jurisdiction of the Moscow Patriarch) as adopted with violation of the sacred canons of the Orthodox Church.” And in July President Petro Poroshenko appealed to the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew with a request to create a single local Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Ukraine.
