  5. The religious scholar explained the conflict between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Patriarchate of Alexandria by the unsuitability of its leadership

The religious scholar explained the conflict between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Patriarchate of Alexandria by the unsuitability of its leadership

Religious scholar Roman Silantiev believes that one of the reasons for the conflict between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Alexandrian Patriarchate is the professional unsuitability of its leaders, Interfax reports.

“When almost the entire leadership of the Patriarchate of Alexandria died in a plane crash about 20 years ago, professionally unsuitable people took their place, and this determined the current situation. If everything had developed normally, evolutionarily in one of the oldest Orthodox churches, the situation would have been different, therefore it is necessary work with what we have,” Silantiev said.

As the expert noted, “Patriarch Kirill did not start this war, but it is necessary to respond to hostile actions, so we can state that the situation is developing quite logically.”
