On February 4, 2013, the bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church’s frontier dioceses of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus held their second conference. The first one took place on February 3, 2011, "on the sideline’s" of the Bishops’ Council of the Russian Orthodox Church, the press service of the ROC informs.

The conference was chaired by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, head of the Moscow Patriarchate’s department for external church relations. In his report, Metropolitan Hilarion summed up the inter-diocesan cooperation in the Russian-Ukrainian-Belorusian frontier regions in the period from 2011-2012. He spoke in particular about theological education, mission, youth work, organizations of pilgrimages and joint celebrations on church significant dates as well as cooperation with governmental and pubic organizations and the arrangement of cultural events and festivals.

After a discussion on ways of developing cooperation between the ROC dioceses in the frontier region, the conference adopted a draft decision to be submitted to Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.

      Bishop promoting war. What a travesty. By all means you should listen to this man instead of Christ- but only if you're willing to forego eternal life. This man is a bad shepherd. So what does this

      This man is no more "terrorist" than the distinguished members of Svoboda and Pravy Sektor. I am utterly amazed at the unholy alliance between theology and nationalism that I find on this
