MOSCOW, December 3 (Itar-Tass) — Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia has cancelled his visit to Kyrgyzstan due the tense schedule, deputy spokesman for the patriarch, Deacon Alexander Volkov told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
Earlier, the organising committee for the patriarch’s stay in Bishkek told Itar-Tass that the “has been postponed”.
“The visit is an important event. But due to the tense schedule a decision was taken to cancel the trip. The visit was planned to take place on December 3-4. The patriarch was expected to come to Bishkek and other cities in order to bless the greater number of Orthodox believers,” Volkov said, adding that despite the postponement of the trip “a new bishop will arrive in Kyrgyzstan on Sunday.
