As previously reported, the press service of the nationalistic and schismatic “Kiev Patriarchate” reported on its website that it sent a delegation to the Phanar to meet with representatives of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, including Met. Emmanuel (Adamakis) of France, on January 12, supposedly discussing the recent Crete Council and the question of autocephaly for a Ukrainian Church. This claim, writes the Union of Orthodox Journalists, is now being called into question.

According to media reports, including the Greek source, Met. Emmanuel was in fact participating in the Fifth European Orthodox-Catholic Forum which was held in Paris from January 5 to 12, which is confirmed by photos of the event, where he is seen seated next to Met. Gennady of Sassima. Presumably he was in Paris through the end of the forum, and thus not in Constantinople on January 12.

The Ukraine does not exist! It is simply a section of Holy Rus occupied by foreign puppets. Was Vlad the enlightener called the enlightener of the Ukraine; No! He is the enlightener of the Russians! Where was he the prince of?...Kiev! Whats next, an "Isreali Orthodox Church", a "Kosovoan Orthodox Church"? For goodness sake why won't the Church stop acting as if occupations by a foreign power are legitimate nations in the eyes of God?!!
