The Patriarchate of Constantinople reinstated the Moscow priest Ioan Koval, who prayed for the coming of peace instead of praying, as prescribed above, for the victory of Russia. The priest, therefore, is accepted under the anaphora of the Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew.

The ecclesiastical court of the Russian Orthodox Church made the decision to depose Ioan Koval in May of this year. Prior to that, in February, Patriarch Kirill personally forbade Koval to serve.

The reason for the ban was that in the “Prayer for Holy Russia”, which was forcibly distributed throughout the dioceses of the Russian Orthodox Church, Koval, instead of the words “Arise, O God, help Your people and give us victory by Your power” said “Arise, O God, help us . ” your people and grant us peace with your power “.

Now the decision made by the Russian Orthodox Church has been declared non-canonical (illegal) and made based not on ecclesiastical but on political considerations, Radio Svaboda reports.
