The Kremlin does not support actions that may lead to a split in the Orthodox world, said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

«You know the position of the Russian Orthodox Church regarding this issue. And, of course, we would not like to have taken some steps that lead to a deep schism in the world Orthodoxy», — said Peskov told reporters, answering the question about the reaction of the Kremlin in the case that the Holy Synod will make a decision on autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
