Welcoming Ilya II in Russia is puzzling - Adviser to the President of the RSO

Flash-poll: How would you comment on the statements of the head of the Georgian Orthodox Church Ilia II, who during the last visit to Moscow once again could not refrain from the political rhetoric, saying he was "confident in the return" of South Ossetia and Abkhazia to Georgia?

Archpriest of the Tskhinval churches, Father Jacob (Khetagurov):

Nothing new has happened to us, the rhetoric is the same. Georgia`s unwillingness to face the reality is obvious. They have been ignoring us for 15 years, pretending we do not exist.
On the other hand, this event – is the affair, the policy of the Russian and the Georgian Orthodox churches. Of course, it concerns us indirectly, we know their position, but obviously it has nothing to do with us. We have our national church, and there is no reason for panic.
