Fr Nikolai Balashov Believed that the Words Attributed to an EP Bishop about the Canonical Status of the Ukraine were Just “Journalistic Fiction”

Fr Nikolai Balashov

______________________________

The MP doesn’t believe that EP Archbishop Iov Gecha stated that the Ukraine was the EP’s canonical territory. Archpriest Nikolai Balashov, Deputy Chairman of the MP Synodal Department of External Church Relations (OVTsS) said:

Archbishop Job is highly educated and expert in canon law; I can’t believe that he’d really claim, “The Ukraine is the canonical territory of the Church of Constantinople”. Such a statement is contrary to historical truth, as well as the official position of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, confirmed many times. Furthermore, Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople sent an official notification to Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all the Russias that Archbishop Iov would be visiting Kiev.

The well-known Ukrainian sectarian activist Sandeya Adeladzhi, of the Embassy of God cult, a supporter of the schismatics, released the interview with the mentioned statement. It also appeared on the Religious Information Service of the Ukraine (RISU) website, a Uniate-backed enterprise. Don’t forget that the head Uniate recently slandered Orthodox Christians… his fellow Ukrainian citizens. Vladyki Iov took part in services in Kiev at the personal invitation of Metropolitan Onufry Berezovsy of Kiev and all the Ukraine. I think that demonstrates whom the EP recognises as the only canonical Church jurisdiction in the Ukraine.

Journalists “tarted up” the facts; they published them without a twinge of conscience. Any road, attempts to deny the legitimacy of the reunification of the Kiev Metropolia with the MP are more journalistic fiction than a solemn statement of the Orthodox hierarchy. In any case, it’s absolutely devoid of both historical truth and canonical reason. Ecumenical Patriarch Dionysios IV and 21 of his Metropolitans signed the Conciliar Gramota of 1686, all the Eastern Patriarchs recognised it, and no one ever questioned it over the centuries.

A View of the Great March for Peace and Reconciliation in the Ukraine

00 kiev priests peace march 310716

_______________________________

In the above image, we see two priests from the two columns of the great march for peace and reconciliation in the Ukraine. Fr Ioasaf led pilgrims from Svyatogorsk Lvara and Fr Viktor came from the Pochaev Lavra. Together with them are two 11-year-old girls, Margarita from Kramatorsk and Feodotiya from Rovno. Margarita walked 700 kilometres, and Feodotiya came 400 kilometres. All this time, “Ukrainian” media and social networks poured out filth upon them, spouting hatred and slander, generated by fear. One understands that such slanderers lied about hundreds of “Kremlin agents” and weapons caches. Not one of them responded normally… nationalist activists, state officials, and other scum tried to move people with new lies. However, we’ve breached the media blackout. Now, we can see the motivation and the fruits of the actions of all the players. People are waking up.

Peace to the world.

28 July 2016. Pray for the Safety of Those in the Great Peace March in Kiev

00 kiev baptism of russia 280716

___________________________

Pray for the safety of all those in the two great peace marches meeting in Kiev today. I do daresay that the chance of violence is too high, as the Uniate/schismo nationalists know no inhibitions or restraints when it comes to cruelty and vindictiveness. I want this day to pass without incident. Shall it? I’d hope so, but I’ll admit that my hopes of that are dim. I’ve had too much experience with Uniate and schismo nationalist flakes… after all, they were Nazi collaborators, weren’t they?
