It was said by the head of Department of external church relations Metropolitan of Volokolamsk Illarion, commenting on results of a meeting of the Synod of Russian Orthodox Church in Minsk. "It was the compelled decision, but other decision could not accept our Sacred synod as to it all logic of the last actions of the Constantinople patriarchy conducted" — the metropolitan Illarion told journalists. He noted that Constantinople actually repealed the act of 1686 of inclusion of the Kiev mother country in structure of the Moscow patriarchy and also made the decision to start granting church to autocephaly in Ukraine. The ROC cannot take such actions, the metropolitan Illarion concluded: "All these decisions from the point of view of ROC are lawless and canonically insignificant. The ROC does not make these decisions, will not follow them.
