“Ukrainian leaders have been campaigning for independence for their church, but Russian church backers have described the move as a schism as significant as the 1054 split between Eastern and Western Christianity.”

___________________________

M.N.: If I may comment humbly on these matters, I think that this separation or “schism” is actually GOOD, historically, for the ROC and for the specific “Russian Christianity”. If you wish so, you may call it the beginnings of the 

Russian Protestantism

which might have the forward looking, pro-gressive, revolutionary, and inspiring nature. And maybe this is what the Russian masses now need. However I meant it not in a sense the search results came up, but as the

Russian Protestantism as the New Russian Orthodox Church after the Schism of 2018

I do not see any big tragedy here for any of the churches involved, in my humble “out of – gnostic” opinion. 

There is another aspect in this. Patriarch Kirill referred to the force behind this multiple split, as the “Enemy of the Human Race”, which is the Devil, which is the Demiurge; and I think very humbly, being absolutely non-specialist in these complicated matters, that he might be very much  correct about this; and this truly historical fact fits  neatly the “German – New Abwehr Hypothesis of the Recent Troubles“, as it was described earlier. He looks like a smart man, too. 

To put this line of thought into the string of Google Searches, we might be tempted to record it as follows: 

New Abwehr The Demiurge – Germany – Turkey – control Ecumenichal Patriarch – in split with ROC – to solidify the gain of Ukraine

Attention, dear Facebook Friends of the United Orthodox Churches of the World: 

The Third Rome moved from Moscow to Kyiv, due to the need for new roof. The rest is all the same. Rejoice! Rejoice!

As in most schisms in Christianity’s history, this one is determined as much by realpolitik and national interests as by dogma. Canonical issues can determine political behavior, while politics often dictate church developments. The Ecumenical Patriarchate is asserting its ancient right to grant autonomy to churches and to judge issues of church law. Constantinople was established by the Emperor Constantine in 330 and, as the “New Rome,” it came just after Rome in seniority. The schism in 1054 left Constantinople the primary church in the East. It is these rights of primacy that the Ecumenical Patriarchate is determined to defend, despite its very reduced circumstances following the city’s fall to the Ottomans and the withering of its own flock in Turkey.

Russia wants to project its leadership of the Orthodox world as the “Third Rome,” a role it took upon itself after breaking away from Constantinople in 1448, when its leadership disagreed with efforts to unite East and West Christendom. After 1453, many Orthodox, including the Greeks, looked to Russia for salvation from the Turks.

But today Ukraine is forging a separate identity after centuries of Russian domination, strengthening ties with the European Union and the United States. Ukraine’s president, Petro Poroshenko, greeted the Ecumenical Patriarchate’s announcement of its decision on Oct. 11 with fighting words.

“This is the collapse of Moscow’s centuries-old claims for global domination as the Third Rome,” he said. “The independence of our church is part of our pro-European and pro-Ukrainian policies that we have been consistently pursuing.”

On Oct. 12, Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, charged that the Ecumenical Patriarchate’s decision was a “provocation” backed by the United States. On the same day, Mr. Putin discussed the issue at his Security Council. Patriarch Kirill, the leader of the Church of Russia, is a close ally of Mr. Putin’s and has taken a hard line on Ukraine for years. On Monday, the governing body of the Russian Church, the Holy Synod, decided to break off relations with Constantinople.

Metropolitan Hilarion, head of the Russian church’s external relations, stressed that Moscow would not abide by any decisions taken by the Ecumenical Patriarchate regarding the Ukrainian Church. “All these decisions are unlawful and canonically void,” he said. “The Russian Orthodox Church does not recognize these decisions and will not follow them.” He called on the Ecumenical Patriarchate to change its decision.

This is unlikely, as Bartholomew has long seen the Russian church as trying to undermine his authority. Patriarch Kirill stayed away from a Holy and Great Council hosted by Bartholomew on Crete in 2016, a meeting of all Orthodox church leaders aimed at promoting unity, which had been 55 years in the making. The patriarchs of Bulgaria, Georgia and Antioch also did not attend.

mikenova shared this story from France 24 – Live news.

WASHINGTON (AFP) -The United States called Friday on all sides to respect the new independence of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, wading into a religious feud that has enraged Russia.

The leading authority in Orthodox Christianity, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, last week granted the right of autonomy to the Ukrainian church, which for more than 300 years has been under Moscow’s control.

“The United States reiterates its strong support for religious freedom and the freedom of members of religious groups, including Ukraine’s Orthodox community, to govern their religion according to their beliefs, free of outside interference,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement.

“We support Ukrainians’ ability to worship as they choose and hope this will be respected by all.

“Tolerance, restraint and understanding are key to ensuring that people with different religious affiliations can live and prosper together in peace,” he said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier accused the United States of supporting the “provocation” led by the church’s first among equals, Istanbul-based Patriarch Bartholomew I.

The decision by the Ecumenical Patriarchate will likely reduce Russian influence in Ukraine, where Moscow has backed separatists in the country’s east and annexed Crimea in 2014.

The Russian church, whose Patriarch Kirill is a strong backer of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has broken ties with the leading Orthodox authority over the decision, which it refuses to recognize.

Ukrainian leaders have been campaigning for independence for their church, but Russian church backers have described the move as a schism as significant as the 1054 split between Eastern and Western Christianity.

M.N.: Я боцку не кацу! I love my Dear Sister Nina, and very sincerely (but not sexually), it is the chemistry, she knows that. 

However, ziz might be a good point in space and time to start the discussion about the corrupting and the manipulative influences of the High Executive Powers on the Intelligence and Counterintelligence Analysis in general. These influences have to be contained within the natural and the appropriate bounds. The great many historical mistakes occurred due to the over-exercise of these powers, the Stalin’s denial of the Germany’s preparations for the plan Barbarossa is one of them. The Analysis has to be absolutely independent and objective, it seems to me; just like a scientific discipline, or medicine (which might be a good comparison). 

In this particular case, the Chinese threat is undoubtedly present (and probably more in the attempts to corrupt the democratic process by financial infusions and in the industrial espionage than anything else), but the significance of this threat has to be accurately assessed and presented to the public. The major actions still are in the good old European theater. We still relive the past history and the past trauma. The WW2 is not really finished, it seems to me. It will be finished only when the New Abwehr signs the peace treaty. We have to realize this. It is also quite possible, that they attempt to convey this message in their recent operations, and they also sense that the old Canaris-Canalyas-Canals paradigm of the intelligence work is exhausted, and they will be outrun if they do not adjust to the new realities. 

The Higher Executive Powers have to be enlightened, but they cannot be allowed to bend the strategic visions and plans as they are determined by  the collective analysis of the Intelligence Community. This analysis has to be as accurate as possible.

mikenova shared this story from Комментарии: Бочку катить.

И каждый год по Волге и Двине, а затем и по всем прочим судоходным рекам тащились баржи и расшивы, гружёные бочками с солёной рыбой. Hа пристанях грузчики скатывали бочки на берег, перегружали на телеги. Каждая бочка весила около полутонны и можно представить, что сталось бы с человеком, неловко оказавшимся на пути подобного груза, ведь бочки на наклонных сходнях разгонялись весьма ощутимо. Отсюда – первейшее правило грузчиков: не катить бочку на человека. А поскольку промысел этот бытовал по всей России, то и выражение “катить бочку” было понятно всюду, а не только в портовых городах, хотя оно никогда не считалось литературным. Да и трудно рассчитывать, что идиома, родившаяся на самом дне русского общества, будет с восторгом принята культурной прослойкой. И сегодня выражение это считается вульгарным, неприемлемым в приличном обществе, хотя значение его вполне безобидно. Катить на кого-либо бочку значит неспровоцированно нападать, угрожать или обвинять в чём-либо этого человека. Причём совершенно неважно, справедливы обвинения или нет.

1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): Voice of America: No Winner; US Lottery Jackpot Climbs to Record $1.6 Billion
No one won the latest Mega Millions drawing, meaning the jackpot climbs to a staggering $1.6 billion.   Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $1 billion grand prize in Friday night’s drawing. The numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.   The next drawing will be Tuesday.   With the jackpot currently tied with the record-setting lottery jackpot and bound to grow before the next drawing, it is bound to become the largest prize in U.S. history.   The jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million.   It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the jackpot aren’t good. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.   Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.Voice of America

1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): ХРОНИКА ДНЯ – Настоящее Время: Кадыров приехал за извинениями к ингушу, который назвал его пастухом
Глава Чечни Рамзан Кадыров приехал в Ингушское село Сурхахи, чтобы получить извинения от старейшины одного из ингушских тейпов Мухажира Нальгиева. Он на акции протеста против договора о границах между двумя республиками назвал Кадырова пастухом, сообщает сайт Кавказ.Релии. Кадыров приехал в село вечером 19 октября в сопровождении охраны. Вскоре после его приезда в селе собрались около тысячи ингушей, сообщает РБК со ссылкой на активиста Исмаила Нальгиева. Во время встречи Кадыров заявил, что инициатива о передаче Чечне части территории Ингушетии исходила от руководителя республики Юнус-Бека Евкурова. Мухажир Нальгиев в свою очередь сказал Кадырову, что недоволен высказыванием Кадырова о готовности навредить ингушам, которые приедут митинговать в Чечню. После разговора мужчины простили друг друга. “Я, в свою очередь, ради Аллаха простил Мухажиру все, что было и, как мусульманин, тоже попросил прощения, если в его душе есть на меня обида. Мы обнялись и расстались, подводя черту под разговорами на данную тему”, – написал Кадыров на странице во вконтакте. На этой неделе Кадыров предложил протестующим против установления новой границы между Чечней и Ингушетией провести митинги на территориях, которые отошли Чечне. Однако руководитель региона предположил, что после этого митингующие могут не уйти оттуда живыми. Так Кадыров отреагировал на оскорбления в свой адрес со стороны протестующих в Магасе, которые якобы говорили, что он не из рода “Беной”, а “бени”. На ингушском это означает “пастух”. “Если вы настоящие мужчины, то придите на мою территорию и организуйте там митинг. Если вы после этого уйдете оттуда живыми, то тогда я тот, кем вы меня называете”, – заявил глава Чеченской республики. Протесты в столице Ингушетии Магасе продолжались до 18 октября. Следующий согласованный митинг противников пересмотра границы между Чечней и Ингушетией запланировали с 31 октября по 2 ноября. 25 октября Конституционный суд Ингушетии проверит соглашение о границе с Чечней на конституционность. С запросом в суд обратились депутаты ингушского парламента и жители республики. Ранее Конституционный суд Ингушетии уже постановил, что соглашение может быть утверждено только по результатам референдума, а не парламентского голосования.ХРОНИКА ДНЯ – Настоящее Время

1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): Window on Eurasia — New Series: Russia’s Disintegration Will Be the Result of a Russian Rising, Tsybulenko Says
Paul Goble

Staunton, October 19 – The Soviet Union fell apart in 1991 largely because of national movements among the non-Russian nations and was peaceful because of the willingness of ethnic Russians to accept the departure and independence of the non-Russian union republics, Yevgen Tsybulenko says.

But the Russian Federation will disintegrate in an entirely different way, with its demise triggered by a rising among ethnic Russians, and will thus likely be more violent as Russians fight among themselves and with the non-Russians as well, the head of the Ukrainian community in Estonia says (afterempire.info/2018/10/19/tsybulenko/).

Tsybulenko says that he has no doubt that “Putin’s Russia is falling apart” and thinks that this will happen much sooner than many suppose. I well remember the last years of the USSR – already in 1989 people said that the empire would inevitably disintegrate but predicted that this process would last several decades.” Two years later the USSR was gone.

Today, he tells Vadim Shtepa of After Empire, “the Russian system is unprecedentedly corrupt, it is eating through its last reserve funds, and it holds out only because Europe continues to purchase Russian oil and gas.  In the 1990s, Russia survived on Russian credits and humanitarian help, but instead of saying thanks, Russia again declared the West an enemy.”

“This empire simply will not survive the latest economic crisis,” Tsybulenko says.

At the same time, he argues that there will not be “a literal repetition of the disintegration of the USSR.”  The disintegration of the Russian Federation is more likely to begin with an ethnic Russian revolt in various parts of the country. Putin’s Russian Guard will cope with the first but be unable to deal with the increasing number of such risings.

“In various regions will appear new leaders and they will lay the foundations for a new system of power. In some places, thee will be old bureaucrats; in others, criminal bosses … and in a third, normal politicians of a new generation who will conduct democratic elections.” This will not be an easy or peaceful process, but a normal future requires it.

A country as large as Russia “can exist only as a federation, but if the authorities themselves don’t want to have a normal federation, what remains is only an empire and its inevitable falling apart,” Tsybulenko says. And that process will be more violent and spasmodic precisely because Putin has promoted the rise of “angry militant imperialists.”

This interview was timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the organized Ukrainian community in Estonia, a community with older roots but which Tsybulenko now heads. There are some 25,000 self-proclaimed ethnic Ukrainians in that Baltic country, the third largest ethnic group there, but in fact, there are many more who were Russianized in Soviet times.

Tsybulenko says that the Ukrainians supported Estonia’s drive to recover its independence, have worked to ensure that Estonians overcome the Soviet view that Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians are all one people, and have promoted ties between Tallinn and Kyiv.

In other comments, the Ukrainian scholar who is the co-editor of a new book, The Use of Force Against Ukraine and International Law (link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-94-6265-222-4) says that in his view, Putin would be acting irrationally if he sought to seize Narva from Estonia by acting as he did in Ukraine.

The Kremlin leader would be resisted not only by Estonian forces but by NATO.  Unfortunately, Tsybulenko continues, Putin lives in his own world and therefore one cannot be certain that he will act rationally in this case given that he hasn’t in others.

1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): Window on Eurasia — New Series: Russians Feeding Their Pets Even When Money is Tight, New Study Says
Paul Goble

Staunton, October 19 – Despite the horror stories about the rounding up and killing of homeless animals by officials in advance of the World Cup, Russians are adopting more cats and dogs, taking better care of them, and feeding them even when their own economic conditions deteriorate, according to a new study by Mars Petcare, a leading produce of cat and dog food.

In the new issue of Profile, journalist Aleksandr Koshkina says that the study shows that “despite all the economic difficulties, Russia remains one of the most pet-friendly countries in the world” with the number of house pets rising more than six million since 2014 (profile.ru/obshchestvo/item/127191-bolshe-kotikov).

Unlike most other nations, Russians own more cats than dogs, 33.7 million against 18.9 million, a reflection, at least in part, Koshkina says, of the country’s growing urbanization and the fact that it is far easier to keep a cat in a city apartment than it is to maintain a dog there.  Cats don’t have to be walked, and 37 percent of Russian cats never leave their apartments.

Urbanization also explains another trend: Russians are selecting smaller dogs than they used to have. But the biggest change the MarsPetcare study found is that “Russians are changing their attitudes toward pets,” viewing them less in rational terms than in emotional ones and considering them members of the family.

Russians are spending more on pet food than they used to as well, with 45 percent of cats, but only 15 percent of dogs, living primarily on store-bought food.  And the study says ever more Russians are willing to adopt cats and dogs they find in the streets, although Koshkina reports that pounds dispute that.

Yet another trend the journalist notes is that Russians are far more willing to take in cats without regard to their breed; but when it comes to dogs, ever fewer of them wants mongrels, preferring instead purebreds. That makes placing mixed breed dogs, who form a large share of those in pounds, often very difficult.

1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): Window on Eurasia — New Series: 20 Oligarch Yachts Cost More than All Russian Navy Ships Built in Last Decade, Military Journal Says
Paul Goble

Staunton, October 19 – For geographic and historical reasons, the Russian navy has never been the priority that its army has; but Voyennoye obozreniye underlines this, noting that just 20 of the yachts owned by Russian oligarchs cost more than all the ships Moscow has built for the Russian navy over the last ten years.

Indeed, the Moscow military journal says with obvious anger and disgust, the price tag of just one of these yachts exceeds the cost of modernizing Russia’s atomic-powered cruiser, the Admiral Nakhimov (topwar.ru/148420-20-jaht-rossijskih-milliarderov-prevoshodjat-po-stoimosti-voenno-morskoj-flot.html).

The article which draws on Western and Russian sources to paint a picture of these expensive playthings of the country’s super rich is significant in at least three ways: First, it highlights the way in which Putin for all his bluster about national defense has deferred to the oligarchs rather than focused on building the Russian navy.

Second, it underscores for a Russian audience just how great income inequality in that country is and how it is affecting not only the private sphere but the public sphere as well. And third, and most important, it suggests, given its source, that there is mounting anger among the Russian military at this situation, a fault line in the Russian elite that is likely to widen.

1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): Window on Eurasia — New Series: Kremlin Creates a Fake Human Rights Group to Undermine Real One
Paul Goble

Staunton, October 19 – In yet another echo of one of the most notorious practices of the KGB in Soviet times, Moscow is now setting up human rights organizations with the same title and ostensibly the same purposes as real groups, a tactic intended to undermine the latter and sow confusion among Russians and others.

Olga Romanova, the founder of the Russia Behind Bars (Rus Sidyashchaya) group which monitors the treatment of those in the Russian penal system and extends them legal and other forms of assistance, says that the Russian justice ministry has registered a group with the same name and declared purpose as hers (facebook.com/Ooo.Romanova/posts/2178503278850567, reposted at newizv.ru/news/society/19-10-2018/gosudarstvo-zanyalos-feykovoy-pravozaschitoy).

Her group, which has been in existence for ten years, quickly tracked down the people behind the new group. They include a prisoner known to have cooperated with her jailors while she was incarcerated.  And it is thus clear, Romanova says, that the new group is a fake created by the authorities to undermine hers by putting out the Kremlin line.

She continues that her group has called attention to this action via a press conference, but has concluded that there is no sense in going to court, given the way in which things there are invariably stacked against genuine human rights activists. Romanova asks that those who care to follow her Facebook page where she will report about this new Kremlin fraud.
