On September 14, the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church announced that it had approved a request of Archbishop Johann (Jean Renneteau) of the Archdiocese of Russian Orthodox churches in Western Europe to join the Russian Orthodox Church.
According to the decision of the Holy Synod, the Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriachate) is accepting Archbishop Johann (Jean Renneteau) as well as all clerics and prayer congregations that would like to do so. Archbishop Johann will head the clercis and prayer congregations of the Archdiocese of Russian Orthodox churches in Western Europe that would join the Russian Orthodox Church.
On September 9, the general assembly of European Russian Orthodox met in Paris to discuss the proposal of Archbishop Johann to change the jurisdiction from the Ecumenical Patriarchate to the Moscow Patriarchate. The event involved 186 delegates from 10 nations. 104 of them (58%) voted in favor of the proposal. The positive voting did not collect the needed two thirds of voters to approve this decision. However, a majority of clerics and lay people in the Archdiocese is in favour of the Russian Orthodox Church. Therefore, the the juristdiction has been changed.
Experts link this situation with the neo-liberal globalist agenda promoted by the Ecumenical Patriarchate around the world. By this, Constantinople de-facto turned into a tool of supporters of the New World Order. The destructive position of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in such regions as Ukraine and the Balkans are a visible example of this.
