Relics of a real saint but in a fake church
The Kyiv Patriarchate isn’t canonically Orthodox but an opportunistic nationalist schism from the Russian Orthodox, the biggest of several such shows in the Ukraine. A fault of RISU is that they usually don’t distinguish between such groups, calling every Eastern group not under Rome ‘Orthodox’. I understand the KP are friendly with the Ukrainian Catholics as part of beating their nationalist drum and they get a boost from the fact that President Viktor Yushchenko is a member.
