Primates of five Orthodox Churches to discuss ROC's invasion of Africa - фото 1
The Patriarchate of Alexandria sent a delegation to the Ecumenical Patriarch with a patriarchal and synodal letter, which sets out a request to convene a meeting of the Primates of the Churches. It will discuss the encroachment of the Russian Orthodox Church on Africa.

This is reported by Religiyna Pravda citing orthodoxia.info.

Primates from the pentarchy will be invited to participate in the meeting. That is the Patriarchs of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, as well as the Archbishop of Cyprus, who does not belong to the pentarchy.

Delegations of the Patriarchate of Alexandria will also visit the headquarters of the patriarchates of Antioch and Jerusalem to deliver letters outlining the situation in full, similar letters will be received by all other Orthodox Primates.

The steps of the Church of Alexandria will be even more decisive if the "Exarch" of the Russian Church, Bishop Leonid (Gorbachev), appears in Africa to "shepherd" his "flock". (Earlier, Gorbachev said that he would lead the African Exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church from Moscow.)

The Synod's decision provides for the immediate removal of a bishop and any other clergyman of the Russian Orthodox Church who is part of and serves under the jurisdiction of the Patriarchate of Alexandria. African clergymen who are not “repatriated” (returned) to their Church will be sanctioned.
