According to TASS with reference to the website of the Ukrainian parliament, the corresponding document, created on behalf of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, will lead to a ban on the UOC if the Kyiv regime decides that it is connected with Russia. 

The initiator of the bill is Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.

Earlier, UN Assistant Secretary-General Ilse Brands Keris expressed concern about new draft laws in Ukraine that could undermine the right to freedom of religion.

On January 7, Zelensky suspended the Ukrainian citizenship of 13 priests of the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC).
