Before interaction with it is impossible, the head of department of external church relations of ROC Metropolitan of Volokolamsk Illarion told journalists, RIA Novosti tells on Monday, October 15. "We hope that the sensible mind will triumph that the Constantinople patriarchy will change the attitude towards the existing church reality. But until this change did not happen while these lawless and antikanonichny decisions from the point of view of Constantinople remain in force, we will not be able to be in communication with this church which is today in split", - he told. Before ROC declared the termination of the relations with the Constantinople patriarchy. Such decision was made because of the beginning of process of granting autocephaly to the Ukrainian church.
