Greek Hierarchs Initiate Pan-Orthodox Council to Resist ‘Independent’ Ukrainian Orthodox Church

Throughout history, America’s CIA has always viewed religious institutions and movements around the world as an access point – in order to insert US influence, and to divide and destabilize regions along geopolitical lines. 

One such example is the current US and CIA-backed effort to split the eastern Orthodox Church and thereby limiting ‘Russian influence’ in a coveted NATO possession like Ukraine. The recent move towards ‘autocephaly’ of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church would certainly be a high-value objective of Washington which has openly expressed its desire for regime change in Moscow, and to bring the fringes of eastern further into the western fold.

Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus and Metropolitan Seraphim of Kythira and Antikythera have sent a joint letter-appeal to all local Orthodox churches calling on them to hold the Pan-Orthodox Council on the Ukraine question, Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus told vimaorthodoxias.gr.

He noted that the recognition of the Orthodox Chruch of Ukraine (‘independent’) by the Greek Orthodox Church may lead to tragic consequences. According to him, the flock is extremely divided and is watching the developments with anxiety as the new Schism is a fact.

Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus emphasized that no local Orthodox church has recognized the recently created Orthodox Church of Ukraine and that the Greek Orthodox Church made a historical mistake, when it decided that the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople had a right to support the Ukrainian schism.

The actions of the top Greek metropolitans regarding the Ukraine question demonstrates that despite the tactical administrative success of Constantinople in Greece, it remains in a very complicated situation because of its actions in Ukraine. In this situation, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople is in fact fueling a conflict within the Orthodox World to pursue own political goals.
