Has responded ROC to actions of Constantinople in Ukraine


The sacred Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) has decided to suspend joint services with the Constantinople patriarchy and prayful commemoration of the Universal patriarch Varfolomey during the church services. The head of department of external church relations of the Moscow patriarchy metropolitan Illarion has compared the decision of the synod to severance of diplomatic relations, RIA Novosti reports. "In fact it is a rupture of the relations. If to follow an example from a social life, then the decision is approximately equivalent to severance of diplomatic relations" — the metropolitan Illarion has told. The Moscow patriarchy also stops the participation in episcopal assemblies, theological dialogues and all structures where representatives of the Constantinople patriarchy act as chairmen or cochairmen. Materials on teme00:04 — the Demon of a poputalmoskv and Kiev battle on January 20 for souls ukraintsevveruyushchy both patriarkhat will still be able to take communion from one bowl. However the Moscow patriarchy will be forced "to break off completely eucharistic communication with Constantinople" (that is a joint participle) if Constantinople continues anticanonical activity in the territory of Ukrainian Orthodox Church. All completeness of responsibility for tragic consequences of this division will lay down "personally on the patriarch Constantinople Varfolomey and bishops supporting him", Interfax quotes Illarion. Members of the synod are sure that the situation around Ukraine constitutes "danger to all world Orthodoxy" therefore ROC has appealed to all local churches "to initiate brotherly vsepravoslavny discussion of a church situation in Ukraine". The patriarch Kirill has said on September 14 that Constantinople interferes in affairs of ROC the same as in the 1920th years when the Russian church "was in the hardest conditions" on September.7 the patriarch Varfolomey appointed two exarchs to Kiev "within preparation for granting Orthodox church to autocephaly in Ukraine". Three organizations calling themselves orthodox churches operate on Ukraine at once: nobody the recognized Kiev patriarchy and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church and also initial Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) possesses wide autonomy within the Russian church and doesn't demand autocephaly. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel.
