No prerequisites for split of Orthodox Church in Belarus

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill, during his visit to Belarus, noted the high level of inter-confessional relations in our country. This topic was discussed on June 23 at a meeting in Minsk that reviewed the visit of the honored guest from Russia.

It brought together representatives of the Ministry of Information and was attended by Metropolitan of Minsk and Zaslavl Pavel.

Concerns about the divisions in church circles are associated with the complicated developments in Ukraine, in which Orthodoxy is now divided into four currents.

Metropolitan Pavel:
The prerequisites for this division were laid in 1992-1993 when the former Metropolitan Filaret (Denisenko) left Orthodoxy, which marked the beginning of this division. The church has always called for unity, love and support. Paul the Apostle urged us to help each other!
