And its anathema turned out to be result, consequence of these actions. And now the Constantinople patriarchy kind of returns back it from schism, from split, but the absurdity of such actions is obvious to any person, even being out of a context church … Because a certain ban which was imposed by one cannot be returned to others" — Volkov on air of Spas TV channel told.
