Ukrainian Catholic Church head: state should stay out of church-union talks
The US-supported president of the Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko, belongs to the Kiev Patriarchate, the country’s biggest nationalist schism from the Orthodox, and wants a national church. Most Ukrainians are secular but most of the churchgoing minority are Russian Orthodox and want to remain so. (The anti-Russian US government may favour the schism.)
