The Metropolitan of Kiev Epiphanius and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko brought the 'Tomos' scroll (decree of autocephaly for Orthodox Church of Ukraine) to the Christmas liturgy in St. Sophia Cathedral in Kiev on Monday.

Worshippers can be seen congregating outside the church singing songs and being greeted by Poroshenko, and later on taking photos of the Tomos.

The Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople Bartholomew I, the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodoxy, recognised the move to independence of the breakaway church from the Russian Orthodox Church on October.

The Tomos was signed by Bartholomew on Saturday.
