The head of the Russian Orthodox Church complained that he was not allowed into the European Union, and the West did not want to deal with his church.

(ROC) Kirill said that he was not allowed into the EU countries. The Russian Orthodox Church website writes about this, quoting Cyril himself.

According to him, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier during the General Assembly of the World Council of Churches in Karlsruhe allegedly tried to put pressure on the delegation of the Russian Orthodox Church. He called this an unprecedented interference of secular authorities in the life of church organizations.

“He failed to influence the Assembly and discriminate against the Russian Church – and now an unprecedented decision has been made: not to let the Patriarch into the territory of the European Union. This even during ” there was no Cold War,” Kirill said.

The head of the Russian Orthodox Church said that Europe is allegedly afraid of him, because some “truth” is on the side of Russia. He wants to be called on television and enter into a dialogue with him.

He said that the West wants to limit the contacts of the ROC with Western church organizations. At the same time, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church called the war unleashed by Putin back in 2014 a conflict that has “political reasons.” And he decided to ascribe the occupied territories of Ukraine to “Novorossia”.

It was also reported that a video appeared on the network in which Patriarch Kirill convinces Russians that death in Ukraine will wash away their sins. The primate of the Russian Orthodox Church hopes that after the war, with God's help, Ukrainians will forget about the treachery of the “fraternal people” and will not hate the Russians.
