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 He noted that Constantinople actually repealed the act of 1686 of inclusion of the Kiev mother country in structure of the Moscow patriarchy and also made the decision to start granting church to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. Split remains split, leaders of split remain leaders of split, and that church which, having recognized dissenters, entered with them communication, thereby excluded itself from the initial field of orthodox church.

And it means that, perhaps, we are on the threshold of the Russian reformation when old Byzantine canons de facto appear invalid Moscow. And it represents other divinity is perfect. For the present to the Synod not before, it also did not think of theological consequences of the statement, but if to begin to think of it, then we will come to model of Church, in many respects close to Protestantism. So in this sense it is possible to congratulate on the beginning of the new page in the history of our church. — It is more likely the good page or bad? — I do not know. It will be new, and in not
