Husar was also a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. After the transfer of the see of Lviv to Kyiv in 2005, he was the Ukrainian Catholic Major Archbishop of Kyiv-Galicia. In February 2011 he became Major Archeparch Emeritus after he resigned due to ill health.

Husar died on 31 May 2017 following a long-illness in Kniazhychi, Kyiv Oblast, Ukraine at the age of 84.[1]
