Lithuanian authorities appealed to the Phanar with a request to restore the parishes of Constantinople in the country

Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė sent a letter to Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople asking him to support the appeal of a part of Lithuanian Orthodox Christians who want to come under the jurisdiction of Constantinople.

This is reported by orthodoxie.

Thus, the Lithuanian authorities support the call of some Orthodox priests “ready to break with the jurisdiction of Moscow” and are ready to help in “restoring the parishes of the Patriarchate of Constantinople” in the country.

Earlier it was reported that the temples of the Orthodox Church in Lithuania are also being vandalized, and the media are campaigning to discredit it. At the same time, representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church in Lithuania appealed to the Synod of the Moscow Patriarchate with a request to review the status of the Vilna-Lithuanian diocese.
