Moscow not to stop imminent recognition of autocephaly of the Ukrainian Church, Patriarch Filaret

Statements of Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev)  of the Russian Orthodox Church concerning the possibility of split in Orthodoxy through recognition of the autocephaly of the Church in Ukraine resemble the threats of Russian President Vladimir Putin with nuclear weapons. Such a commentary made by Patriarch Filaret of Kyiv and All Rus-Ukraine was posted on his Facebook page.

“The threats of Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) of the ROC concerning the possibility of a “great schism” in Orthodoxy concerning the recognition of the autocephaly of the Church in Ukraine are reminiscent of Putin's threats with nuclear weapons. They are both a sign of weakness. For, for example, the USSR did not threaten nuclear weapons, because it had a powerful force. And when there is no real force – then they try to scare with threats.

If the split happens, only the ROC will find itself in schism, and only for a while.

It should be understood that such statements are a sign of despair and impotence. In Moscow, it has already become clear that recognition of the autocephaly of the Church in Ukraine is inevitable. And their threats will not prevent it.»

As reported, Metropolitan Hilarion of the ROC stated that if the UOC gets autocephaly, the schism in universal Orthodoxy will be comparable to the Great Schism of 1054.

    Митрополит Иларион правильно высказал свое мнение и никаких угроз здесь не звучит.

    Своими мультфильмами и угрозами о ядерном оружии Путин только всех насмешил. Раскола в Православии не будет. Никто не признает настоящими православными церквами "упц кп" и "уапц", действительность и благодатность их обрядов и священства. Именно этого они добиваются под прикрытием лозунга автокефалии, которая у них и так есть, ведь они независимы.

    Irinej's comments would be laughable if they weren't so incredibly pathetic.

    Преступления для честных, а для жуликов, лжецов, грабителей и убийц - норма жизни ещё с 1917 года.

    Для "чого це потрібно"? ---- Мабуть, як "приклад" і своєрідний "взірець" ("шлях"), як саме нині в Україні греко-католики й православні, мовляв, можуть

    Легкий на помині Ісіченко. Але для чого це потрібно Блаженійшому Святославу?
