      Patriarch Kyrill (Gundyaev) had a heart attack, said a source in the ROC episcopate 
      According to a source in the episcopate of the Moscow
      Patriarchate, who wished to remain anonymous, the real reason for the admission
      of Patriarch Kyrill/ ROC (Gundyaev) to the Central Clinical Hospital in Moscow
      was a heart attack, caused, apparently, nerve strain due to the recent visit by
      the leader of the Moscow Patriarchate to Ukraine, according to a Portal-Credo.Ru correspondent"on August 6.  At present, according to the source, such belief is shared by part of the episcopate.

      This is the second week Patriarch Kyrill's hospital stay. On
      the eve of his July 28th hospitalization he celebrated ​​the liturgy in the
      Lavra of the Kievan Caves and visited the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the
      monument to the victims of Famine. On the
      morning of July 30 the official website of the ROC reported that he suffered an acute viral illness, and therefore canceled his
      July 31-August 1 visit to Kronstadt and Diveevo. On August 5, Archpriest Vladimir Vigilyansky, head of the Patriarchal Press Service, respondingto journalists' questions, said that  Patriarch Kyrill was "all
      right" and that he was undergoing tests in the Central Clinic Hospital  in connection with
      a viral illness.
       
      Currently, the Patriarch Kyrill is not in intensive care, but in an ordinary VIP-room.  On August 4, within the walls of the
      hospital, he performed the rite of elevating the Archbishop Vikenty of Tashkent and
      Uzbekistan to the Metropolitan. . A photo report of this
      rite is posted
      on the official website of the ROC . "The rite of elevation to the rank of metropolitan", established by Patriarch Kyrill himself,  previously always occurred
      during the liturgy at the small entrance .
