The decision of the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church to recognize the schismatic religious organization “Orthodox Church of Ukraine” was adopted under pressure from Washington.
This statement was made by the former Minister of Defense of Greece Panos Kammenos, speaking at the scientific conference of the Institute of Geopolitical Research “Geopolitical events in the vital area of the Eastern Mediterranean and their interaction with the international environment.”
“The archbishop [Jerome] has committed a crime,” Kammenos said. “The bishops of the holy synod became criminals when the illegal Ukrainian church was recognized as the first in front of the patriarchates of Jerusalem and Alexandria at the last holy synod.”
According to him, the EOC “succumbed to the pressure of some American circles,” actually hitting Greece’s relations with Russia.Paris torpedoes U.S. anti-Russian campaign – France will have a mechanism to bypass sanctions
