According to the original Euromaidan tweet (in Ukrainian), his proper title is Archdeacon; I couldn't find whether he is Moscow or Kyiv Patriarchate.

There are many photos of Orthodox priests with the Maidan protesters on this page.

But it's from the WaPo, so probably CIA Photoshop work? ;)

What's interesting about that one is that it isn't Maidan but the Krim.

BTW, I think the Western media has difficulty distinguishing Greek Catholic and Orthodox priests. On the linked photos, I believe the "orthodox" priests with Cossack Crosses (which resemble the Maltese Cross) are Greek Catholics.

Apparently all the media have him with different titles.

Auch der Metropolit von Simferopol ist gekommen. Der im schwarzen Talar gekleidete Kliment schreitet auf das Eisentor zu, stellt sich vor die ukrainischen Rekruten, begrüßt sie und sagt mit der ruhigen, herzlichen Stimme eines Mannes mit Gottvertrauen: "Alles wird gut. Gott ist mit euch."

LOL, The Guardian first promotes him to Archbishop, now for Die Zeit he is the very head of the church... just proves that most journalists today don't do their own research and mindlessly copy the latest.
