According to Filaret, the existence of synod for the Kiev Patriarchate is spelled in the statute of the Church.
" We are an independent church from them. Our cathedral was held on June 20 and we said we did not belong to this so-called PCU. Therefore, their decree does not concern us. Nor is the order punishment. Therefore, we do not respond to all these decisions, says Filaret.
