*'''Church of Ukraine (Moscow Patriarchate) (UOC-MP)''' (which this article covers)
*'''[[Church of Ukraine (Kiev Patriarchate)]] (UOC-KP)'''

There is also another splinter faction:
*'''[[Autonomous Ukrainian Orthodox Church in America]] (AUOCA)''' which was formerly known as the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church - Canonical and which claims its lineage through the Tomos of Autonomy of 1924 given by the Orthodox Church of Poland.
