"I think that statements statements, but their implementation in life will be much more difficult, than it seems. As Filaret's ambitions (heads of uncanonical church in Ukraine are an edition) on patriarchate are known to all, and it will be the main barrier to convocation of so-called unifying cathedral" — Kliment said.
