The “collective West”, faced with its monumental defeat in Ukraine and everywhere else (Africa, Middle East, etc), is entering a period of deep paranoia.  Andrei Martyanov (link here for his expert blog), would call it a serious case of “butt hurt”… We can see different episodes of panic and paranoia almost everywhere and they are all linked to the same cause: the leaders of the collective West cannot fathom the historical dimensions of their defeat and they cannot give up their hegemonic power all over the globe. Let me list some of these episodes here.

A) The Orthodox Church of Ukraine, led by Epiphanios (soon to be called “Epiphanios of No Ukraine” as Helleniscope predicted a year ago), had a meeting at the Lavra monastery (after they kicked out the rightful occupants, monks of the UOC) and condemned the ideology of the “Russian world” as a teaching based on heretical principles of ethno-phyletism, Manichaeism and Gnosticism. While their ideology and practice of banning free press, banning the UOC (the church of the 70% of Ukrainians), banning the Russian language spoken by 50% of Ukrainians (even Zelnsky’s mother tongue is Russian!!) is a sign of …Christian love… They also stated that the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, excommunicated himself from the Church. (LOL)… Mr. Epiphanios (of No Ukraine) in a few months you will be likely somewhere in Europe or the US along with the Ukrainian “Government in Exile” trying to convince people that you deserve a salary. Good luck…

2) The “Archons of the Patriarchate” (Helleniscope named them the “Archons of Disaster”) will hold a special conference in Athens later this month, to play the ridiculous role of “Defenders of Religious Freedom” worldwide.  Nothing is more foolish than that.  The Archons are known agents of the State Department, who, for the last 50 years, failed to open the Halki Theological Seminary!! Yet President Putin, with one phone call to President Erdogan in 2015, opened the Panagia Sumela Monastery in Pontos (Eastern Turkey), which had been shut for 100 years!! Archons, look yourselves in the mirror and make the comparison!! Meanwhile, after Pat. Bartholomew granted “Autocephaly” to Ukrainian schismatics and, in doing so, managed to demolish religious freedom for over 70% of Ukrainian Orthodox, they will now accuse the Moscow Patriarchate of attacking Bartholomew! Paranoid!! Well, the paranoia will end soon, as the defeat of NATO in Ukraine will force the arrogant and evil actors out of there. Get ready to welcome Epiphanios and Co., my dear “Archons of Disaster”!! And get into your deep pockets to start wasting your wealth on these “moochers”…

3) There are endless examples of panic and paranoia, but I will end this short note with the “Ukraine Peace Summit in Switzerland” on June 15-16. A peace summit will take place without Russia’s participation!!! How delusional is that?  As delusional as “pizza without cheese”!… A real monument of political masturbation!! Fifty countries will be there, though, to participate… Yes, Emanuel Macron, the “Little Napoleon,” will show all his nonexistent skill in this “theater of the absurd”…

The OCU held its “Bishops’ Council” at the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, where it condemned the ideology of the “Russian world”.

On 11 May, the OCU held its “Bishops’ Council” at the Refectory Church of the Holy Dormition Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, reports the organisation’s official website.

During the assembly, representatives of the OCU condemned the ideology of the “Russian world” as a teaching based on heretical principles of ethno-phyletism, Manichaeism and Gnosticism.

They also stated that the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, excommunicated himself from the Church.

“Taking into account the special gravity, publicity, and persistent unrepentance in crimes against God, the Church of Christ, and humanity committed by the layman of the Russian Orthodox Church Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, the Bishops’ Council of the OCU witnessed that this person, by his crimes and persistent and conscious unrepentance in public sins, has excommunicated himself from the Church,” the OCU’s statement reads.

Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate: Defenders of Religious Freedom

By Theodore Bozonelis*

On Sunday, May 26 through Tuesday, May 28 2024, Archons from America, Greece, Canada, Australia and throughout Europe will convene in Athens, Greece for the Fourth Archon International Conference on Religious Freedom: Protecting Religious Freedom, Democracy and Human Rights.

This high-level international conference is the latest of innumerable Archon initiatives to defend the Ecumenical Patriarchate and protect religious freedom worldwide. At the same time, on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, following the international conference on religious freedom, the first and historic summit of all global Archons will convene, focusing on creating a unified and organized network to protect the future of global Christian Orthodoxy and all faiths.

This international conference continues the Archons’ assertive, multifaceted projects to defend religious freedom; it follows three other religious freedom international conferences that the Archons have hosted in recent years: the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, 2010; and in Berlin, Germany, 2013; and in Washington, D.C., 2017.

Featured speakers at the Athens conference will include Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis of the Hellenic Republic; former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; Archbishop Gintaras Grušas, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Vilnius, Lithuania, and President of the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences (CCEE); Dr. Despina Chatzivassiliou-Tsovilis, Secretary General of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe; and other notable and distinguished defenders of religious freedom.

Highlights will include a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy at Annunciation Metropolitan Cathedral; an opening ceremony at the Stoa of Attalos; a welcome reception at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and events at some of Athens’ most notable historical and architectural landmarks, including the Acropolis Museum, the Old Parliament, Zappeion Hall, and the American School of Classical Studies.

These Athens venues are particularly fitting for a conference attended by global Archons. The ancient order of Archons is the oldest and most prestigious honor that can be bestowed upon a layman in the entire Christian world.

The title of Archon dates back to the eleventh century B.C., and has been held by some of the most illustrious figures in the history of the Hellenes, including Pericles, Solon, Themistocles, and Aristides the Just, as well as Constantine the Great, the first Christian Roman Emperor.

In the modern era, the Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate have enlisted the assistance of the federal government of the United States; the state legislative bodies of each of the 50 states of the United States; the European Union; the European Court of Human Rights and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), among other institutions, in order to convey the urgent message to the Turkish and other state governments to cease and desist policies that constrict religious freedom, not only for the Ecumenical Patriarchate, but for all religious minorities, including the Jewish, Roman Catholic and Protestant communities in Turkey and elsewhere.

These efforts come at a time of a global crisis of religious freedom, particularly for Christians, but also for people of all faiths. According to Open Doors, World Watch List, and Aid to the Church in Need, 360 million Christians are persecuted worldwide – a number more than the current U.S. population.

Christians, and especially Christian women, face extreme or high levels of persecution in 73 countries. Today the situation has not significantly improved and in many areas has worsened.

On average, as many as 25 churches and other Christian structures are attacked around the world every day. In the Middle East, the Christian share of the population has reduced to under five percent, down from more than twenty percent at the turn of the last century. This decline attests to a century of ruthless persecution that began with the Greek, Armenian and Assyrian genocides a century ago.

Amid this global crisis, His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, our beloved spiritual leader of the world’s 300 million Orthodox Christians, has for many years now lent his profound and prophetic voice to the endeavor to protect and promote religious freedom and human rights for all faiths.

He has declared: “A modern and democratic political and social structure has to respect the religious wishes and sentiments of its citizens. Religious freedoms cannot be curtailed in the name of secularism.”

His All-Holiness has also reminded us that “the Church of Constantinople gives a constant testimony to the necessity of the protection and promotion of religious freedom and of free exercise of worship, championing the ethos of solidarity toward the other faith communities.”

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew has not just spoken out about religious freedom; he has taken decisive action, at immense personal risk, to defend it. In January 2019, he withstood extraordinary pressure from the Moscow Patriarchate and its proxies, and granted freedom to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine with his Tomos of Autocephaly.

The pressure upon him did not abate after he granted this autocephaly and, in fact, it has increased with the Moscow Patriarchate interfering in the canonical lands of the Patriarchate of Alexandria, as well as other canonical territories of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

Yet, in the face of these challenges, His All-Holiness is unable to enjoy the very religious freedom he has granted to others. The restrictions that the Turkish government has placed upon the Ecumenical Patriarchate are the ongoing concern of the Archons, and a key focus of Archon efforts on behalf of religious freedom.

Archons strive all over the globe to work with governments and people of influence in order to restore the religious freedom of our beloved and most holy Mother Church so as to enable it to exercise its worldwide sacred mission in perpetuity and without any hindrance.

By doing so, these efforts have now expanded to defend religious freedom for all faiths. We invite all people of good will in support of human rights and religious freedom to join us in this noble initiative.

*Hon. B. Theodore Bozonelis, Archon Ekdikos, National Vice Commander, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in America

Ukraine peace talks: 50 countries have confirmed participation

The meeting will be held on June 15 and 16 at the five-star Bürgenstock hotel above Lake Lucerne in central Switzerland.

To date, 50 countries out 160 invited delegations have confirmed they will attend the Ukraine peace conference, due to be held in central Switzerland in mid-June, according to Swiss public radio, RTS.

The meeting will take place on June 15 and 16 at the five-star Bürgenstock Hotel above Lake Lucerne in central Switzerland.

“We are preparing intensely at the diplomatic level to convince those who have not yet made announcements,” Nicolas Bideau, the head of communications at the Swiss foreign ministry, told RTS on Wednesday.

So far, 50 delegations have announced their arrival. They include the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the president of the European Council, Charles Michel, Germany’s Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, the head of the Italian government, Giorgia Meloni, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

+ All you need to know about the Ukraine peace summit

The Swiss foreign ministry says it is satisfied with the replies but expects more.

“The major European countries are there, but we would also like to have, as much as possible, countries from the South, because we want an open discussion on all the possibilities and reflections for peace in Ukraine. We therefore want numbers, but also North-South representativeness,” said Bideau.

+ Switzerland invites 160 delegations to Ukraine peace talks

Russia will be absent, however. “We did not invite Russia, because it keeps saying that it is not interested,” said Bideau.

But one of the objectives of the June meeting is to find a way to involve Moscow, he confirmed: “We are in a preparation phase, we will not make peace, as such, at the Bürgenstock but we would really like to launch a process that involves Russia. That’s why we are staying in contact with it.”

+ Macron will attend Swiss summit on Ukraine, says Zelensky

There is much speculation about the possible presence of US President Joe Biden at the Swiss-hosted conference. No announcement has been made officially yet. But a meeting of G7 leaders in Italy takes place from June 13 to 15 and ends just a few hours before the conference in Switzerland.

A security challenge

Beyond the diplomatic aspects, the Ukraine talks represent a major security challenge.

The security set-up in place should resemble that of the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, which takes place every January in the mountain resort in southeast Switzerland.

The Bürgenstock talks will involved the Federal Police (Fedpol) and the police of four cantons: Nidwalden, Obwalden, Zurich and Lucerne. The army is likely to also participate, but this must still be discussed in the Federal Council.

Unlike the WEF, where Austria and Italy participate in controlling the airspace, no foreign army will join the operations, says the Swiss foreign ministry.

The Hotel Bürgenstock, which overlooks Lake Lucerne, is in a strategic location, easy to close to the public and close to an aerodrome.

  1. So let’s get this logic straight….

    After 60 years of an agreement between Pope of Rome and “Pope of Constantinople” to lift of “anathemas” between East and West,

    ….the West (Bartholomew’s Uniate proxies) are re-introducing the “anathemas” between East and West,

    ….masking them as an “internal affair” on Epiphanios’ claim to be “Orthodox”,

    …after Poroshenko (and certainly others behind him) were revealed by multiple media sources to have provided “millions of dollars” to Constantinople in order for Bartholomew to reverse 27 years of agreement with Moscow on the Philaret matter, in an effort “legitimize” Philaret’s disciples instead?

    That method of “conversion” sounds like a classic definition of “Simony” (Σιμωνια) – ordination in exchange for bribes (see book of Acts), a violation which is automatically punishable defrocking, excommunication, “anathema”, according to the Canons…talk about being “self-condemned”, or “self-excommunicated”

    Do they really think we are that stupid? LOL indeed… 🙂
