Against the Russian Orthodox Church carries out the work, though at times the faithful and the clergy themselves give rise to criticism, said in an interview with RIA Novosti the Chairman of the Synodal Department for Church and society and the media Vladimir Legoyda.

«I’m not a supporter of conspiracy theories, but I am convinced that against the Church is conducted, and from different centers. You have to be very naive to not see it. Of course, this does not mean that we are all white and fluffy, and the problems only because of enemies,» — said Legoyda.

According to him, sometimes Christians – laity, priests, bishops «themselves give rise to fair criticism».

«But often journalists are contributing when the owners of those or other mass media put in front of their revision such tasks. The more elementary fact-checking in many of these media have long traded on the number of visits and likes. And this applies not only to the Church. After all, there is life, there is her media image, and I have never met a person or organization, absolutely satisfied with my media projection,» — said the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church.
