      Russian lawmaker hopes good relations will be maintained between Russian
      Orthodox, Roman Catholic Churches

      Moscow, February 11, Interfax - Chairman of the State Duma Committee for
      Public and Religious Organizations Yaroslav Nilov said relations between
      the Russian Orthodox and Catholic Churches will hopefully not
      deteriorate and remain creative as previously.

      "Let us hope that dialogue between the Russian Orthodox and Roman
      Catholic Churches will proceed in a well-meaning and creative
      atmosphere," he told Interfax on Monday while commenting on reports that
      Pope Benedict XVI I is stepping down in late February.

      Reports said earlier that Benedict explained in a statement for the
      press that he lacks strength to continue his job.

      "This conduct deserves respect," Nilov said.

      "If one confesses that he had better step down for reasons that obstruct
      his effective work and honestly hands over his post to another person,
      this only suggests that he does not consider his personal ambitions
      superior to public interests," Nilov said.
