After the meeting between Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin and Paul Richard Gallagher, the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States, it was reported that the former said the Vatican’s spokesman told him the Vatican was in favor of the granting of autocephaly to The Orthodox Ukrainian Church.
But on September 27, the Vatican embassy in the Ukraine denied this statement. Their official statement reads as follows:
“The Apostolic Nunciature in Ukraine wishes to once again state the position of the Holy See in the question of the creation of one Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church, namely that this is an internal question of the Orthodox Church, on which the Holy See never did and has no intention whatsoever of expressing any evaluation, in any venue”.
