Since the Russian Orthodox Church in 1997 imposed an anathema on Denisenko, not one of the local Orthodox churches has had any eucharistic and prayerful communion with him and the Kyiv Patriarchate headed by him.

Official reports of Constantinople on the results of the Synod have not yet been received.

Ukrainian authorities and representatives of the split are seeking to create an autocephalous church, independent of the Moscow Patriarchate. Patriarch Bartholomew agreed to help them in this by sending two exarchs to Ukraine in September.
