Actions aimed at dividing church are not welcome - Peskov on situation in Ukraine

Moscow, April 19, Interfax - Russian presidential press officer Dmitry Peskov has cautioned against actions that may deepen the division of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

"You know the position of the Russian Orthodox Church, you know the position of the patriarch of all Russia on this matter. Of course, actions aimed at dividing the Church can hardly be supported and can hardly be welcomed," Peskov said, when asked if the Kremlin supports the creation of a Ukrainian local Church.
