The exact date of the meeting on the “Ukrainian question” is unknown, but the discussion could take place in January-February.
Speaking about the further reactions of the Athos elders at Tomos Ukrainian schismatics, the interlocutor of the Agency suggested that the Holy mountain will take a break and will not immediately go out from the jurisdiction of Patriarch Bartholomew.
