      Disputes with Orthodox 'resolved'
      5 July 2013

      Russia's Catholic archbishop has said he believes long-running Orthodox
      complaints about the Church's activities in the country have now been
      settled for good, thanks to improved ecumenical relations.

      In an interview with the Kommersant daily, Archbishop Paolo Pezzi, head
      of the Moscow-based Mother of God Archdiocese since 2007, said Russia's
      million-strong Catholic Church still faced problems in cities such as
      Ryazan, Kirov and Vologda, where its Soviet-seized places of worship had
      still not been returned.

      However, he added that questions raised by the Russian Orthodox Church
      about Catholic activities, including complaints of encroachment in the
      former Soviet Union, had now been "answered", adding that he believed
      there was now nothing to prevent direct talks between Kirill I and Pope
      Francis.
