'''Metropolitan Nicholas''' ({{lang-ru|Митрополит Николай}}, born as '''Boris Dorofeyevich Yarushevich''' (Борис Дорофеевич Ярушевич; Juanuary 13, 1892 <small>(December 31, 1891 [[wikipedia:Old Style and New Style dates|OS]])</small>, [[wikipedia:Kaunas|Kovno]] – December 13, 1961, [[wikipedia:Moscow|Moscow]]), was a bishop of the [[Russian Orthodox Church]].
He supported the controversial 1927 declaration of [[Sergius (Stragorodsky) of Moscow|Metropolitan Sergius]], pledging loyalty of the Church to the Soviet authorities against the will without concurrence of the imprisoned Patriarchal ''locum tenens'', [[Peter (Polyansky) of Krutitsy]], and Sergius' subsequent collaboration with them.
In 1941 he became Metropolitan of [[wikipedia:Volhynia|Volhynia]] and [[wikipedia:Lutsk|Lutsk]] and later, after the German invasion of the Soviet Union, Metropolitan of [[wikipedia:|Kiev]] and [[wikipedia:Galicia (Central Europe)|Galicia]]. Later, as the German troops advanced, he was evacuated to Moscow.
