The Catholic Church of Poland has rejected data on plans to absorb the Lviv Archdiocese

The Polish Catholic Church called absurd the information that Poland is discussing the absorption of the Lviv Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine. The corresponding statement was made on Thursday by the press secretary of the Conference of the Episcopate of Poland Leszek Gensiakcommenting on the message of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) of the Russian Federation.

“The absurdity of this information is quite obvious, and it is even difficult to comment on it,” the Polish Press Agency quotes him as saying. According to Gensiak, “The church can become the subject of a political game related to the interests of that war.”

As the SVR informed on Wednesday, the Conference of Polish Bishops, the central governing body of the Catholic Church in Poland, is seriously discussing the issue of absorbing the Lviv Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine.

The secret service explained that in practical terms, for this it is proposed to “edit” the provisions of the concordat concluded between Warsaw and the Vatican in 1993 and ratified by the Sejm in 1998. In particular, it is planned to introduce amendments to the sixth article of this treaty, designed to lift the ban on the activities of Polish Catholics outside of Poland. The Archbishop of Lvov, in turn, is to be given a seat in the Conference of Polish Bishops.

As Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin, whose words were brought to the press bureau, said, “according to incoming information, the Polish authorities are consistently implementing plans to appropriate the western regions of Ukraine.”
