The Ecumenical Patriarchate and Ukraine Autocephaly

I often get questions about the issue of Ukraine Autocephaly, and there is confusion around the world due to the distortions coming out of Russia, so besides the resources I have already posted on the issue, below are other resources that get into further detail which answer pretty much all the questions I get on the issue, since I really don't want to address this issue beyond the ways it has already been addressed. These are all documents and publications that have already come out through the Ecumenical Patriarchate and its supporters. Do not form an opinion on the issue without reading these documents and the ones I have already posted.
