Archpriest Anatoliy states he was deeply disappointed with the fact that only 2 priests (he and his son) of Kirovograd eparchy are in Kyiv now. There are about 300 temples in Kirovodrad region, so there are much more priests in the eparchy. At the same time, he stated that all Greek-Catholic Church representatives are in Kyiv.
