The head of the UOC-KP Filaret
The United States should provide security to the Patriarch of Constantinople, said Filaret.
USA needs to protect Patriarch Bartholomew from attacks that can be performed on the part of the ROC. The head of the UOC-KP said during an interview with “Voice of America”.
“Now has already begun: if the Patriarch will give a Tomos, they will cease the commemoration – said Filaret, answering the question, what kind of attack we have in mind. – And then, if Tomos will be presented, followed by the suspension of the Eucharistic communion. That’s why the Ecumenical Patriarch must feel.”
Last week the head of the UOC-KP thanked the U.S. for support Fanara in the creation of the Autocephalous Church in Ukraine.
Earlier, the Hierarch of the Church of Constantinople refuted fake, disseminated by the media, according to which the representatives of the Russian delegation (during the meeting, Patriarch Kirill and Bartholomew) tried to poison Patriarch Bartholomew and other bishops of the Patriarchate of Constantinople. At the same time the “Russian poisoner” prosecutors pointed to the man who actually was an employee of the Patriarchate of Constantinople and that at all events the Patriarchy offers the water.
