  • Ukraine’s Autocephaly: first results and possible influence on Orthodox world

    March 29th

Though the whole process of granting autocephaly took less than a year – Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko appealed to the Ecumenical Patriarchate in April 2018 – the “healing of the schism” seems to be requiring much more time as the reconciliation between former schismatics and the Orthodox Church, which used to be the only canonical one in Ukraine, can’t happen in one moment.

  • U.S. Ambassador: NATO is stronger with Lithuania, and Lithuania is stronger as a part of the Alliance

    March 29th

    Over the past year, Lithuania has marked historic anniversaries that have brought into focus both how much Lithuania has overcome in the past decades and how much this nation has accomplished. Today I join all Lithuanians in celebrating one such accomplishment. On this date 15 years ago, Lithuania joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), arguably the most successful political-military alliance in history, an alliance that has helped to bring security, peace, and prosperity to hundreds of millions of people across Europe and North America. In a remarkably short amount of time, Lithuania has become a true leader within this alliance. I want to congratulate the people of Lithuania on this tremendous milestone. NATO is stronger with Lithuania as a member, and Lithuania is stronger as a part of the Alliance.
