Today was held in Paris an extraordinary general assembly (statutes, articles 35 and 28) of the Archdiocese of the Russian Orthodox Churches in Western Europe. The discussion was lively and the various opinions could be exchanged. The question asked was: “Do you accept the canonical act of attachment of the Archdiocese to the Moscow Patriarchate as presented in the published document?”
The assembly counted 186 voters. 185 voted. 6 turned in blank votes, and 104 (58.1%) voted in favor, and 75 (41.9%) against. We are waiting for the official communique of the Archbishop who will inform about what will be done.
