What will lead church split to? Georgy Bovt's comment


The ROC breaks off communication with the Constantinople patriarchy. Split was predetermined by events in Ukraine and Georgy Bovt has powerful political feed. Photo: Mikhail Fomichev/TASS In Minsk there took place the meeting of the Synod of Russian Orthodox Church at which reciprocal actions on steps of Constantinople were discussed. Earlier Universal patriarch Varfolomey actually opened the road to declaration of autocephaly of the Ukrainian church of the Moscow patriarchy that the ROC calls "recognition kanonichny the dissenting religious organizations of Ukraine". As the head of Department of external church relations Metropolitan of Volokolamsk Illarion said, the decision on a complete separation of communication with the Constantinople patriarchy was made. The intra church conflict originates in events of 1686. Then Constantinople which was already under the power of the Ottoman Empire, transferred the Kiev metropolitanate to management of the Russian church. Today it is territories of Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Poland. In Constantinople prove the decision by the fact that allegedly in the 17th century Moscow did not acquire "property right" to these lands, and only some powers on management of church life in these territories which were temporary now.

The frightened inhabitant can ask a question: but whether there will be because of it no "crusade" and religious war for orthodox shrines, for example for Kiev Pechersk Lavra? Religious wars always had the political background. For the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko history with autocephaly is that fight which he for the lack of achievements in Donbass can give as the victory before presidential elections. Now sharing of church property is necessary. In Ukraine the real estate of arrival belongs to community, it also will resolve an issue of its further accessory. Split can take place at the parish level. Power depriving of property at arrivals of the Moscow patriarchy is possible. Now three orthodox churches operate on Ukraine. Only one of them, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow patriarchy (Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate)) entering into structure of ROC admitted other orthodox churches until recently.
