Patriarch Theodore II thanked the OCU representative, Metropolitan Epifaniy for the letter of support he sent regarding the anti-canonical invasion of the Russian Church within the jurisdiction of the ancient Patriarchate of Alexandria.

This is reported by the OCU website.

"We are forced to fight, making every possible effort, in order to preserve the canonical privileges of the See of St. Mark transferred many centuries ago by the God-bearing fathers.

This generous expression of support for the Patriarchate of Alexandria and all of Africa on your part will be imprinted for life with gratitude in the memory of our hearts as proof of your noble and brotherly love, as well as your loyalty and respect for the second-largest Patriarchate and its primate," Patriarch Theodore II said in a letter to Metropolitan Epifaniy.

On January 15, 2022, the Primate of the OCU sent a letter to Patriarch Theodore, in which he condemned the incursion of the Moscow Patriarchate in the canonical borders of the Patriarchate of Alexandria and all of Africa. In it, the Primate of the OCU called Russia's actions lawless and anti-canonical.
