Representatives of the Ukrainian “New Church” were deprived to attend the worship service in several monasteries of  the Athos Mount   – strana.ua says

Delegation of the Ukrainian “New Church” arrived in  Athos  21-23 June, to visit the monasteries of Monasteries of Xenophon, Pancokrator, Iverion  Philopei, Espigmen and Caracal. It was considered that the heads of  these monasteries, except for Philopei and  Espigmen, were loyal to Patriarch Bartholomew. Dressed in civilian clothes they together with others entered the Philopei and  Espigmen monasteries, but the Athos monks noticed  them and forced to leave the monasteries territory

The “New Church”  of Ukraine

The  Ukrainian “New Church”  was established in December, 2018. Its leader ids Yepifaniy Dumenko. In January of this year, the Constantinople Patriarch awarded the Tomos of autocephaly to the schismatic  church of Ukraine. It should be noted that the world orthodoxy does  not recognize the “New Church”, while the  Metropolitan of Kiev and Galicia Filaret  announced a month ago about the discord in the “New Church” and accused of  Yepifaniy in breach of agreement

At the same time, Filaret criticized Tomos and declared that Tomos makes Ukrainian orthodox church dependent on Constantinople and does not meet the church autocephaly status
