The OCU religious scholar Dmitry Gorevoy has already counted the votes in the “Court of the Pentarchy” over Patriarch Kirill. In his opinion, three of the Five Churches will suffice for this. Gorevoy wrote about this in the propaganda material of Radio Liberty.
“Currently, out of the five members of the Pentarchy, with a high degree of probability, the ROC can be condemned by 3 churches that have recognized the OCU – Constantinople, Alexandria and Cyprus. Jerusalem and Antioch are likely to be neutral.
There is an option that 4 out of 5 will arrive at the Pentarchy court, and then 3 out of 4 can make decisions on the conviction of Patriarch Kirill” Gorevoy calculated.
“The Jerusalem Patriarchate can theoretically accept “pan-Hellenic solidarity” and condemn the Russian Orthodox Church, but it is quite seriously dependent on Russian pilgrims and their money. The situation in Antioch is aggravated by the presence of Russian troops in Syria. But in Orthodoxy, the territorial conflict between these two patriarchates has not yet been resolved, and Antioch does not appear where Jerusalem does. Therefore, there is an option that 4 out of 5 will arrive at the Pentarchy court, and then 3 out of 4 can make decisions on the conviction of Patriarch Kirill, with one abstention,” Dmitry Gorevoy summed up the “vote results”.
Earlier, Greek sources announced the idea of the Phanar to restore the “court of the Five Churches”.
