Romanian Orthodox back UOC-KP efforts

I'm sure Moscow loves this. Considering that the government's foreign minister, the Patriarch himself, and clergy who have published on the patriarchate's website have all denounced the very idea of a unified Ukrainian Church I can only expect more of the same.

Kyiv (RISU) — On 18 June, 2008, Patriarch Filaret received a delegation of the Romanian Orthodox Church headed by Archimandrite Modest, the Coadjutor Bishop of Ardzhysh Eparchy, at the Kyivan Patriarchate. He assured Patriarch Filaret that the Romanian Orthodox Church supports the efforts of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyivan Patriarchate to establish the local Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The delegation visited the city to venerate the Ukrainian shrines. This story was reported by the press center of the Kyivan Patriarchate.
