President Petro Poroshenko spoke about the results of the meetings during the working visit to Finland.

"A very interesting meeting was with Primate of the Finnish Orthodox Church His Eminence Archbishop Leo, who expressed full support for the process of creating the autocephalous church. And you see that the process of supporting the decision of the Ecumenical Patriarch to give the Tomos of autocephaly, the letter of authorization for the establishment of the Ukrainian church finally independent from Moscow must be expanded and have more and more approvals in various parts of the world," the Head of State said.

The President also reminded the meeting with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö and thanked the Finnish side for hospitality and support: "We really need it now".
