If Ukrainian schismatics become legal then the canonical church in Ukraine will face even greater danger than now. According to Metropolitan of Volokolamsk Hilarion, the chief of Moscow Patriarchate’s department for external Church relations, the church will simply get the position of an outlaw, TASS reports.

He stresses that in the case of granting autocephaly to the schismatics, a real full-blown war against the canonical church will begin. All methods, including political ones will be used during it. Undoubtedly, the Ukrainian authorities will adopt special laws to deprive church from its temples, other real estate and legal status.

As Russkiy Mir reported, Ukraine began preparation for a "local independent church" creation. According to the representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, the actions of the Constantinople Patriarchate are caused by the desire for historical revenge and establishment of a world Orthodoxy new center.

Although the countries have been interacting with one another for centuries. And the real basis of their multilateral interaction was already there in the shape of the famous Russia-India-China triangle brought into circulation by Evgeny Primakov. The transformation of BRICS into an influential international format went through several stages, and at each stage the role of experts was paramount."
