Georgia a proxy war for Moscow and Constantinople

(Orthodox Times) - Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew gave a full-length interview to the Georgian channel TVFormula and journalist Giorgi Targamadze. The interview was broadcast on Easter Sunday, May 2, 2021.

As reported by, the Ecumenical Patriarch clarified that: “The churches of Abkhazia and South Ossetia are under the jurisdiction of the Georgian Orthodox Church. It is not right that the Russian Orthodox Church intervened.

The fact that the Moscow Patriarchate will recognize the autocephaly of Abkhazia if the Georgian Orthodox Church recognizes the autocephaly of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, it is blackmail with no basis.


  1. The Sergianist "Moscow Patriarchate" is just an extension of Putinisn

    1. Well, it's not "just" that - but that is in play. Even deeper than a shallow Putinism is the the Russian cultural (ecclesial and secular) self understanding as "Kievan-Rus" combined with the MP's commitment to a federation model of Orthodox ecclesiology...

    2. Do Alternate there is not a patriarch anywhere in the world that is not corrupt or heretical? Because in another thread some made it clear that Antioch is too worldly.

      That leaves you and who else? .

  2. EP Bartholomew is corrupted beyond recognition.

  3. Entire nations cut off from the Church, and Constantinople, Moscow, and Tbilisi make it all about them and their supposed importance. God forgive us...
