In the airport the Patriarch was welcomed by the officials, including the Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov, the Ambassador of Belarus to Ukraine Valentyn Velychko and the first deputy head of the Kyiv City State Administration Oleksandr Mazurchak.
"I am happy again to celebrate the ministry together with His Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine Volodymyr at the Volodymyr’s Hill and at the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, where the history of monasticism in the Holy Russia began," the Patriarch expressed his joy on the arrival to the Ukrainian land.
After the welcoming ceremony, the Patriarch Kirill left for the Holy Synod of the ROC.
Meanwhile, as ForUm correspondent informs, when the Patriarch went down the airstairs, a Femen activist ran up to him shouting "Get out!" and trying to strip the clothes off her body.
