Patriarch Kirill: I call on all parties to establish a Christmas truce in Ukraine and Donbass

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Rus' called on all parties to establish a Christmas truce in Ukraine and Donbass and, thereby, refrain from using fire. The same applies to the new regions that have become part of the Russian Federation, on the territory of which hostilities are also currently underway.

I, Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Rus', appeal to all parties involved in the internecine conflict with a call for a ceasefire to establish a Christmas truce from 12:00 January 6 to 24:00 January 7, so that all Orthodox people can attend services on Christmas Christmas Eve, as well as on the day of the Nativity of Christ

- says the Patriarch's address.



Recall that in the spring of 2022, after the start of the special operation, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church sent a letter to Archpriest John Sauke, Acting Secretary General of the World Council of Churches, in which he touched on the Ukrainian crisis. The head of the Russian Orthodox Church placed all responsibility for what is happening on the countries of the NATO military-political bloc. According to him, all political forces whose goal is to weaken and contain Russia are not at all going to fight with it with their own hands, using other means for this, which resulted in a confrontation between the fraternal and Slavic peoples - Russians and Ukrainians. Through his sermons, Patriarch Kirill repeatedly urged the episcopate, the clergy, and all believers to remain faithful and united in the Church, continuing to pray for the restoration of peace in Ukraine.

We emphasize that in November last year, he also noted the fact that today Russia is facing the greatest dangers and difficulties that threaten its very existence.

          The Armed Forces of Ukraine now consist of 50-70% of foreigners with foreign weapons! Many of them do not understand the Russian language, nor do they believe in Orthodoxy, and they came to Ukraine not at all for the sake of peace, but for "safari" earnings against Russians and multinational Russia as such!

          Interestingly, during the Second World War, the Orthodox Church also called on the Red Army, Soviet partisans and fascists of all stripes for a Christmas truce?

          Does Kirill himself believe in what he calls on the Armed Forces of Ukraine and foreign representatives of NATO? Or is he essentially just populist on the side of the enemy?

          No Russian Orthodox Church is able to stop the war and even achieve a simple truce with the enemy!

            In Ukraine, there are still quite a few Orthodox Russian people left, albeit intimidated. The same Kiev-Pechora Lavra, etc.
            Now the war is unleashed by the Anglo-Saxons between the Orthodox people of Russia and Ukraine, and it's all scary and a call to all true Orthodox, and there are still such in the Armed Forces of Ukraine .. Stop the massacre on a holy holiday .. This is a normal call of the ROC
            You should not bring joy to the Anglo-Saxons when the Orthodox kill each other on a holy day. This is the whole point of the call!
            There are so few of us Orthodox left in the world (the same Serbs are being exterminated, etc.) ..Remember this guys and keep crosses under your vests ..
            Whoever has them, it means that not everything is lost yet, I'm talking about prisoners, etc. And all with the upcoming Orthodox Christmas!

              They are with crosses in hospitals in Donetsk, in pharmacies in Kremennaya, it is high time to understand there are no brothers or co-religionists there, they perceive each of our acts of mercy as weakness, give them free rein and they will slaughter us like pigs for Christmas and Easter and Epiphany. And remember the beginning of the NWO Odessa and Donbass since the attack on Luhansk No brothers there, forget

              The patriarch could call Orthodox rise up in Ukraine against the "yoke of Satanists" ...
              During the time of the Commonwealth, the Orthodox in Ukraine rebelled several times against the power of the Poles and Jews. Today, the Orthodox living in Ukraine do not strongly object to the destruction of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine - no one particularly stands up for the Kiev-Pechora Lavra ...

        Religion should not influence politics.

        Religion should not interfere, but from time immemorial it has interfered.
        One has only to look closely and you will find the connection of the church with politics even today.
        Joe Biden, the first Catholic president in six decades to proclaim himself a "devout" follower of the teachings of the church, was rejected by the late Pope Benedict XVI, who forbade him from attending his funeral. Jean-Pierre said Biden won't attend the funeral "according to the wishes of the late Pope and the Vatican", since "their wishes" were that Biden did not attend the funeral.
        It should come as no surprise that Biden was removed from the guest list by the late Pope Benedict. As a conservative, he was no doubt appalled by Biden's stance on a range of issues, not least his stance on abortion.

        Pope Benedict became the first pope to step down since Pope Gregory XII in 1415 and the first to do so on his own initiative since Pope Celestine V in 1294.

        However, a group of Catholic leaders cite new evidence found in emails released by WikiLeaks and claim that the conservative Pope Benedict did not resign on his own initiative, but was ousted from the Vatican in a coup the research team is calling "Catholic Spring"

        Soros, Obama and Clinton used the diplomatic apparatus, political muscle and financial power of the United States to coerce, bribe and blackmail for "regime change" in the Roman Catholic Church to replace the conservative Benedict with the current Pope Francis - who has since become the mouthpiece of the international left, stunning Catholics around the world.

        No wonder Benedict didn't want Biden and his henchmen to attend his funeral.

          I have no idea how religious you are, or just consider yourself a believer, but I will say one thing, it was religion (not to be confused with faith) that was created in order to keep people, most in line.
          I have always been worried about one question, or rather its divergence: it is said that a person is created in the image and likeness of God, but when the young people get married in a church, the priest asks if you agree, servant of God, and further in the text. So man is the likeness and image of God on earth, or is it a SLAB? There is no trust in the church today. And the employees themselves did the same. Now you go to any temple and as if you got to the market. The holy spirit has been lost, and instead they sell any utensils like in a roadside cafe. If earlier candles of different sizes were sold as a standard, now under the guise of Orthodoxy it sells food, drinks and other utensils. Solid commerce.

            Trading in temples is prohibited. In Jerusalem, in churches, there are only candles, but they don’t sell them, but you take them and put as much money as you can into donations. The rest of the church paraphernalia is sold in a store, not far from the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

        Then he uttered the significant words:
        “May the coming military storm also serve to improve our spiritual atmosphere, may it carry away with it all sorts of pernicious miasms: indifference to the good of the fatherland, double-dealing, serving personal gain, etc. we have some signs of such a recovery.

          The basic principle must remain unchanged: the church can exist, but - separated from the state. And it should not make any attempt to tell the authorities and the people how to live and act. The patriarch, in this particular case, is trying to influence the course of the NWO, no more, no less. So far, all truces have played into the hands of the enemy. Why should it be different this time?!

          And let's not forget that the Orthodoxy, Mohammedanism, Catholicism, Judaism, etc. you listed. represent FAITH...

          And the patriarchs, popes, muftis, rabbis represent the CHURCH, that is, the "structure" acting "on behalf" of the Creator...

          Although the Creator, if such exists, is ONE for ALL. AND ALL POWERFUL...

          Behind this, by definition, he does not need any "intercessors" in his affairs, broadcasting on "his behalf", whether "earthly" or "universal" affairs ...

          By the way, HE, and not the "church", endowed everyone with a head and the ability to think (and therefore be responsible for their words and deeds).

    “Fascist robbers attacked our Motherland. Trampling all sorts of treaties and promises, they suddenly fell upon us, and now the blood of peaceful citizens is already irrigating their native land. The times of Batu, the German knights, Charles of Sweden, Napoleon are repeated. The pitiful descendants of the enemies of Orthodox Christianity want once again to try to bring our people to their knees before untruth, to force them to sacrifice the welfare and integrity of their homeland, the blood covenants of love for their fatherland by naked violence. But this is not the first time the Russian people have had to endure such trials. With God's help, this time too, he will scatter the fascist enemy force into dust. Our ancestors did not lose heart even in a worse situation, because they remembered not about personal dangers and benefits, but about their sacred duty to their homeland and faith, and emerged victorious. Let us not disgrace their glorious name, and we, the Orthodox, are kindred to them both in the flesh and in faith. The fatherland is defended by weapons and by a common national feat, by a common readiness to serve the fatherland in a difficult hour of trial with everything that everyone can. This is the case for workers, peasants, scientists, women and men, young men and old people. Everyone can and must contribute his share of labor, care and art to the common feat ... "

    What are you Cyril, was not at the height of their ancestors?

Yes, and on some "fair" for the Kyiv Natsiks, which means "conditions" satisfying THEIR OWNERS, ENEMIES of Russia ...

    What is the world like there?
    The Orthodox were forbidden to pray in the churches of one of the main Orthodox shrines - in the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra.
    On the other hand, they let Christ-sellers of the Bartholomew Antichrist-Ptsushniks into our churches, who intend, with the support of the CIA and "authority 404" in the Lavra, to arrange their own den-false monastery.

    When in 1920 the Poles with the Petyurovites briefly occupied Kyiv, the legendary General Brusilov appealed to all Russian officers, urging them to join the Reds, who are for Rus', and therefore for the true faith.

Oh, I don’t like such “initiatives”, oh, how I don’t like ...
    "If the enemy does not surrender, he is destroyed!" So said my grandfather, a participant in that Civil War. And the enemy does not give up! It does not give up yet ... and instead of destroying it, it is proposed to create an informational pretext for the howling of the liberota and Westerners about the weakness of Russia, which has requested a truce, with their own "hands".

For those who do not know the history of the USSR, I will say that the Orthodox Church during the war years organized a fundraiser for the front. With this money, military factories of the USSR produced combat aircraft and even columns of tanks. Today, on the NMD front, most of the soldiers of the Russian Federation are Orthodox Christians. Many gag them in their desire to pray for victory over the enemy. All over Russia in many temples there is a collection of funds for the soldiers, members of the NWO.

          Dear Boris! Really, from your point of view, only non-Christs work at the factories of the military-industrial complex of Russia? The Orthodox Church in Russia is not a church building with a priest. First of all, these are hundreds of thousands of parishioners (if not millions) working not only in trade, but also in the production of weapons, missiles, ammunition, fuel and much more. I would not advise you to divide Russia into churchmen and atheists. By this division you pour water on the mill of our enemies.

    Cyril would not climb into worldly affairs. What is happening now with the ROC in Ukraine is a shame and disgrace. The priests have forgotten about God and are dividing real estate, church utensils and income from the flock between "self-proclaimed" branches of the Russian Orthodox Church.
    The priests forgot that the church is the temple of GOD, and they are only servants there, and not representatives of God on earth, and trading in the name of Christ is a SIN.
    Jesus came to Jerusalem and found that oxen, sheep, and doves were being sold in the temple, and there were money changers sitting around. And, having made a scourge of ropes, he drove everyone out of the temple, also sheep and oxen; and scattered the money of the money changers, and overturned their tables. And he said to those who sold doves, Take this from here, and do not make my Father's house a house of trade.

    Gundyaev once said a long time ago that the End of the World was approaching. And that only the blind can not see it.
    It seems that after these words of the Gundyaevs, someone smarter told him that there was no need to drive the blizzard. Otherwise, it turns out that it makes no sense for us to build new factories, icebreakers, aircraft, roads, bridges, etc.
    Gundyaev shut up and said nothing more on this important topic.
    Years have passed. There is no end of the world.
    The coronavirus has arrived. Gundyaev got into a Mercedes, took the icon with him and drove around Moscow. To protect Muscovites from the disease.
    Years have passed. The coronavirus continues. Wave after wave. And Gundyaev fell ill.
    In vain he burned gasoline.
    Gundyaev chats, and the wind carries the infection.
    It seems that the time has come to amputate another right hand (right hand) from some deceased Saint and carry these relics around Rus'. Kiss, Orthodox brethren! And it will help from the virus, and the adversary will win!
    And the corpse of a saint without a right hand should be buried somewhere. The right hand, separated from the body of the Saint, is more convenient to carry.

      I didn’t like priests and don’t like them, but the late grandfather hated them in general since the Civil War. Faith, I believe, it is born between God and Man. And why in this case are some "dealers" when their activities bring obvious moral and physical harm to the "flock"?
