TBILISI, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - A delegation of the Georgian Orthodox Church led by Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of All Georgia will take part in the festivities timed to the 1025th anniversary of the Baptism of Rus, the Georgian Patriarchate reported on Thursday.
“The events will take place in Moscow, Kiev and Minsk. Ilia II and the Georgian Orthodox Church delegation will visit three cities within July 23 and July 30,” the Patriarchate said.
