Greek Catholics ask for VAT reimbursement for construction of Patriarchal Cathedral in Kyiv

The government owes the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) about 5 million UAH from value added tax (VAT) paid by the UGCC during the construction of the Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ in Kyiv, Bishop Joseph (Milian), auxiliary bishop of the Archeparchy of Kyiv UGCC told the Information Department of UGCC.

According to Bishop Joseph, the funds would significantly help complete the construction of the church, which has been going on for eight years. «We do not claim any privileges, but would be grateful if we, as a conscientious taxpayer, were returned the paid VAT because it is provided by law,» said the bishop.

«We have submitted the relevant documents and hoped for the reimbursement of the funds,» said the bishop. «However, we recently found out that only 500 thousand UAH of VAT has to be returned, and 400 thousand were reimbursed in bonds.»
