What, presence of observers, ambassadors is an unprecedented decision? No, of course. And when the Russian Empire just has destroyed the Georgian patriarchy to a stone and has just cancelled existence of the Georgian patriarchs for hundred years - it is what, not a precedent? In it a certain trouble that it is very easy for us to return all these arguments which now we turn to Constantinople: and you what was done? At the same time yes, Greeks, apparently, still it isn't aware that Constantinople has already fallen. The Constantinople hierarches very much want to recreate at least illusion, the virtual world of the Byzantine empire, let at the church level".
