Ex-head of Church Liubomyr (Husar) expressed his views on the reforms being established by the current government. According to Bishop Liubomyr, dramatic changes in society are not taking place in Ukraine because of two reasons: laziness of those who implement them and the reforms themselves being not well thought-out.

"Why is there an opposition to reform? These may be subjective or objective reasons,” reflects  the Cardinal in the pages of "Ukrainian Truth." Subjective reasons are the sloth and negligence of those persons responsible for carrying out the reforms. Objective reasons relate to the reforms themselves; they can be complex, involving major changes and sacrifices, and still may be not well-thought, populist, or so-called "political."
