Patriarch Filaret is not baptized and revenues of the Ukrainian Church will be transferred to Constantinople


No evidence given.

Filaret worked under subordination of the Russian Patriarchate till 1992. He was the Metropolitan of Kiev of the Russian Orthodox Church, also a member of the Holy Synod, and even participated in the elections of the Moscow Patriarchate. Thus, “non-baptized” Filaret could not have held such senior positions; neither would he be able to participate in the elections to the Moscow Patriarchate.

After being granted the autocephaly, the Ukrainian Church became independent from other churches. It means that all of its revenues will remain in the budget of Ukraine’s new united church.
