"The orthodox brotherhood of the whole world prays for unity". Church on the verge of split?


The Constantinople patriarch Varfolomey appointed the representatives in Ukraine. In reply to ROC has said that can break off the relations with the Constantinople patriarchy of the Photo: depositphotos.com of ROC has entered open opposition with Constantinople. The solution of the Constantinople patriarchy to appoint the two special representatives to Kiev became an occasion: one of the USA, another — from Canada. Their task — to prepare the autocephalous status of Ukrainian Orthodox Church: in fact, she will be separated from ROC. The sacred synod has already expressed "a resolute protest and deep indignation". The ROC has said that it is real threat to unity of all world Orthodoxy. The big-time politics interfere with the relations of churches, the director of the Orthodoxy and World portal, the archpriest Alexander Ilyashenko is sure: Alexander Ilyashenko the director of the Orthodoxy and World portal, the archpriest "It is obvious that behind the back of the Universal patriarch very influential political forces which put pressure upon that he has made the decision necessary to them.
