The Russian Orthodox Church is outraged by Patriarch Bartholomew's statement that he will definitely come to Ukraine because his flock is there. This follows from the comment of the head of the Department for External Church Relations of the Russian Orthodox Church, Metropolitan Hilarion, on-air of Rossiya 24 TV channel.

This is reported by Religiyna Pravda.

Hilarion does not understand "what kind of flock the patriarch of Constantinople has in Ukraine," because in his opinion, "the majority of Ukrainian Orthodox believers belong" to the UOC-MP. All the other Orthodox Christians, according to the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church, constitute "a schismatic entity to which Bartholomew granted autocephaly."

He also did not ignore the topics that are now actively spread in the Russian Orthodox Church, about "attacking the churches of the canonical Church, "expelling priests", and "prayers of persecuted parishioners in the cold."
