In May 2022 the deputies of the city council of Borislav in the Lvov region banned the activities of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, reports the Union of Orthodox Journalists. The resolution was published on the city administration site and will take effect from 1st July.

The document on the liquidation of the canonical Church speaks about a “ban on using church buildings and premises for gatherings and worship,” and also of the “mandatory confiscation of property for it to be transferred to the communal property of the Borislav territorial community.” The object under discussion is the Church of the Intercession of the Virgin Mary which belongs to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate.

The officials labelled the decision “historical.”
