Hundreds of the laity, whom Patriarch Bartholomew refused to meet with outside the Verkhovna Rada on August 21, are holding a prayer standing in front of his residence.

About half a thousand believers with portraits of His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry are holding a prayer standing in front of the residence of Patriarch Bartholomew in Kyiv. The police did not allow them directly to the residence on Lypska Street, hence believers are located in the park near the monument to Vatutin. The event is broadcast live by the 1Kozak channel. At about 20.00, the believers began singing the akathist to the Mother of God.

The participants in the standing told the UOJ correspondent that they still demand a meeting with Patriarch Bartholomew and do not lose hope to tell him about the real situation in Ukrainian Orthodoxy that developed after the intervention of the Patriarchate of Constantinople.

After the end of the akathist, the believers chant "Our Beatitude Onuphry!"
