The Ukrainian World Congress expresses sincerest gratitude to His Beatitude Ieronymos II, Archbishop of Athens and All Greece, and all hierarchs who supported recognition of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine during a Holy Synod held in Athens on October 12, 2019.

The Church of Greece, one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world and the state Church of Greece, became the first to recognize the independence and sovereignty of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

Formal recognition will take place in Thessaloniki on October 19, 2019, with the participation of Archbishop Ieronymos and Orthodox Church of Ukraine Metropolitan Epifaniy.
