      Dbar expects “some positive decisions” from the Moscow Patriarchate

      05/07/2011

      The Moscow Patriarchate will consider the ban on service of the rebel
      Abkhazian priests Dorofei Dbar and Andrey Ampar. “Maybe in the near
      future some positive decision will be made” – Dbar told the news agency
      Apsnypress after returning from the Russian capital.

      At that the head of the so-called “Holy Metropoltanate of Abkhazia”
      noted that on June 29th they discussed “conflict situation”, which “had
      developed in the Abkhazian Church”, with the chairman of the Department
      for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, Metropolitan
      Illarion of Volokolamsk. And it was agreed to keep details of the
      conversation quiet.

      Dorofei Dbar also said that in Moscow he was presented with a document
      dated 2008 under which he is allegedly a “bishop” under the name of
      Dmitry and is a head of the Sukhumi-Abkhazian diocese which is a part of
      the Ecumenical Patriarchate. “This was the first time when I learned
      about existence of this document – said Dbar. – A text of the document
      leaves no doubt that it was fabricated in Abkhazia”.

      It should be noted that the leaders of the so-called “Holy
      Metropolitanate of Abkhazia” visited Moscow after their open appeal to
      the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill to listen to them directly
      and make a fair decision regarding the banning of Dbar and Ampar to
      conduct church services. Before that they threatened to leave the
      Russian Orthodox Church, and even earlier they refused to go to Moscow
      after they had been summoned there.
