Cardinal:Kirill's Backing Ukraine War Is Heresy; Must Not Use Violence to Solve Church Conflicts

 The Vatican's point man on ecumenical affairs said Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill's defense of the war in Ukraine amounts to "heresy," and has fractured unity of the Orthodox community, the Crux website reportrs today (June 30, 2022).

In an interview with the German newspaper Wurzburg Die Tagespost, Swiss Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, said, "It is heresy that the patriarch dares to legitimize the brutal and absurd war in Ukraine for pseudo-religious reasons."

Koch added that church conflicts must never be 'solved with violence."
