MOSCOW, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia said he was hopeful that Christian roots of the Ukrainian people would prevent the dramatic consequences.
“The basics of statehood are being shaken and we’re witnesses of it when we watch terrible pictures of Kiev, the mother of all Russian cities,” Patriarch Kirill said at the 22nd International Christmas Readings currently underway in Moscow.
“We should remember what is the basic of our house whatever it was - big or small, personal or nationwide. Neither wars nor conflicts were unable to destroy the basic of our faith - our spiritual tradition,” the patriarch said.
Over 5,000 clergymen from all eparchies of the Russian Orthodox Church take part in the International Christmas Readings.
