MOSCOW, July 14. /TASS/. A meeting of the Russian Orthodox Church Synod will be held in Moscow on July 15 to make decision the legitimacy of the Orthodox Council on Crete, the press service of Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill said on Thursday.
The council on the Greek island of Crete was held from June 20 to 26. The council, preparations for which started as far back as in 1961, was supposed to become the fullest and most authoritative assembly of top clerics of the Orthodox Christian world in almost a thousand years. The Bulgarian, Antioch (Syrian), Georgian, and Russian Churches refused to attend the Council because of differences over procedural issues and texts of passed documents.
