MOSCOW, November 22 /TASS/. The Roman Catholic Church and the Russian Orthodox Church, the world’s two biggest Christian denominations, call for strict observance and implementation of all points of the Minsk Accords to reconcile the people in Ukraine, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill said at a meeting with Cardinal Kurt Koch, the head of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, in Moscow on Tuesday.
"Our Churches are convinced that there can be no plan of action for reconciling the people in Ukraine other than strict observance and implementation of all the points of the Minsk Accords," Patriarch Kirill stated.
"Of course, it is vitally important to emphasize that the Roman-Catholic Church and the Russian Orthodox Church maintain their commitment to the peacekeeping mission: Churches should serve the cause of peace rather than become players in a grave civil conflict," the head of the Russian Orthodox Church stressed.
