We inform that a permament member of the Holy Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, His Eminence Agafangel, Metropolitan of Odessa and Izmail, has refused to participate in the upcoming Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church.

We note that Metroplitan Agafangel was included in the delegation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church by the decision of the Holy Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church on 4.19.2016 (journal no. 22).

In accordance with the decision of the Holy Synod, one way out of this extraordinary situation would be to convene an extraordinary Pan-Orthodox Pre-Council Assembly to consider the situation as it has evolved and the examination of the corrections of the draft documents submitted by the Local Orthodox Churches with the aim of developing unanimous proposals. The conclusions of such an assembly, as the Holy Synod declared, could lead to a decision regarding the possibility of convening the Pan-Orthodox Council at the scheduled time.
