«I think it (the transfer of the Cathedral of the Russian Orthodox Church — ed.) will be made in the foreseeable future,» said Metropolitan Hilarion.

He noted that is created around St. Isaac’s Cathedral Church information noise was a planned provocation. «To a large extent the hype around this issue has been blown out of proportion by the opposition, who are looking for topics in order to promote news stories. They aim to create dissatisfaction with the current government, relations between the Church and the government. And we must understand that such occasions are used as just that,» — he stressed.
