Clash between churches – Articles – “Christians of South Ossetia call on Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to protect them from ‘spiritual extermination’. As the believers of the republic say Archbishop Hilarion of Volokolamsk, chairman of the Department for external church relations made a disrespectful statement about Alanian eparchy referring to it as a ‘schismatic group’. The point is that the Russian Orthodox Church recognizes canonic integrity of the Georgian Orthodox Church considering Abkhazia and South Ossetia parts of its territory in ecclesiastical terms. Will Moscow listen to Tskhinval?”
