Russia: Ukrainian Patriarchate 'not turning its back' on Moscow — Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denounced the Ecumenical Patriarchate's decision to distinguish the Ukrainian Orthodox Church as independent from the Moscow Patriarchate, during an interview given to RT France, Paris Match and Le Figaro in Moscow on Friday. Lavrov described the decision as 'provocations orchestrated by Patriarch Bartholomew and supported by Washington.' The Russian... Еще diplomat said: «The Ukrainian Patriarchate is not turning its back on the Russian Orthodox Church,» adding that both churches are against the 'provocation.' «This provocation is meant to use two non-canonical churches in Ukraine, two excommunicated churches — the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Church — that were never recognised by any Orthodox church,» he added.
