That’s according to the Deputy of the Khmelnytskyi City Council, Vitaly Pidhaichuk, Ukrinform reports.
"For the first time in many years, a prayer for Ukraine and the Ukrainian Army was heard in the Ukrainian language," Pidhaichuk wrote.
According to the deputy, the decision to hand the temple to the OCU was made by community members at the relevant meeting.

Last week in Khmelnytskyi, the Holy Intercession Cathedral, the Church of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, and the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Most Holy Theotokos were transferred to the OCU.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, the Khmelnytskyi City Council decided to terminate the lease right for 13 land plots earlier provided to the churches of the Moscow Patriarchate.
The Khmelnytskyi Regional Council at an extraordinary session passed a full ban on the activities of the Moscow Patriarchate across the region.
