One of the Phanar’s blog posts has reported that during a meeting on July 9 in Moscow with the delegation of Constantinople, Patriarch Kirill expressed regret at the absence of Patriarch Bartholomew at this meeting.

Let's add that the delegation of Constantinople was represented by Metropolitan Emmanuel of France and Metropolitan Bartholomew of Smyrna.

Details of the conversation are not reported, neither are they reported on the official website of the Russian Orthodox Church, although it is known that the delegation flew to Moscow to discuss the “Ukrainian issue”.

Relygiyna Pravda media outlet provides a translation of the words of one of the representatives of the Constantinople Patriarchate Metropolitan Emmanuel of France at the meeting, addressed to the Head of the ROC and to those attending:

“You referred to the ties that bind us, and this connection is sacred. Our Churches have experienced moments of not only greatness and glory, but also difficult moments in history. We have always had a loving relationship and a spirit of mutual understanding and cooperation, although sometimes we faced difficulties in these relationships, but the wisdom of God always prevailed,” said Metropolitan Emmanuel of France during the meeting.

Earlier, official representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, in particular Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) -- who is considered to be the “right hand” of Patriarch Kirill -- have repeatedly warned that in the case of the provision by Constantinople of autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine, “a universal split equal to the split in 1054 that divided the Church into the East and West may also occur.”

    Божа Мудрість завжди всепереможна. Та тільки б наша нещасна, так звана мудрість, була правдивою. не в очах єпископів,архієпископів, митрополитів і Патріяярхів, а в очах СПАСИТЕЛЯ. ... Божа сила і Правда завжди і всіх ПЕРЕМОЖЕ, тільки б ми жили в цій ПРАВДІ...

    The so called Hilarion ¨threats¨ with a split . Split from whom? They will be alone and isoleted, as russians like to be, thinking the whole world is their enemy. Poor pathetic creatures! May the Lord has piety on you!

    Так вот, когда на Христовых апостолов (среди которых была и Мария, Матерь Иисуса) - в день Пятидесятницы - сошёл Святой Дух, то они стали публично и громко говорить и, в частности, проповедовать на

    Р. S. Кстати говоря, именно это введение церковно-славянского языка - в качестве языка эклезиальных богослужений - для тех славянских народов, что приняли христианство в восточной традиции,

    Очень интересно и даже смешно получается, когда этот (извините) злобно-ненавистный - промосковский сплетник и клеветник ("римо-католик") настырно диктует Православной Церкви в Украине, на

    Між тим, незадовго до 11 жовтня Онуфрій був у Порошенко в АП, а 12 жовтня у Ававкова в МВС, не схоже, щоб на церковній території
