This is the main, most dangerous and not at all obligatory step taken by Constantinople. Work on the creation in Ukraine of a subordinate Constantinople patriarchy structure, which could be given an autocephaly, Bartholomew could, without removing the anathema from Filaret , without recognizing the schismatics. It was reasonable to hold this argument, both for negotiations with the Moscow Patriarchate and for influencing the internal situation in self-appointed churches. Nevertheless, Bartholomew laid him on the table, cutting off his own ways to the possibility of settling relations with Moscow.
These multiple splits are also dangerous because they will destabilize the situation in those states where these churches operate. In other words, we are talking about destabilization of the situation and provocation of religious conflicts not only in Ukraine, but in Eastern Europe, in particular in the Balkans, in North Africa, in Asia Minor and the Levant. If civil religious armed conflicts encompass this region, a big war will almost immediately knock on the doors of humanity. After all, some will be blamed for the destabilization of Bartholomew and the United States, while others will be accused of the Russian Orthodox Church and Moscow.
The possibility of avoiding a conflict that, having begun as a purely religious one, will quickly develop into military-political clashes of the respective states (as well as within them), no longer exists. The only question is what scale it will take and how many countries it will cover, whether it will be possible to localize it within Ukraine.
It should be understood that the actions of Bartholomew are intentional – it was not difficult to calculate the possible answers, they lay on the surface. That is, he deliberately went to initiate bloodshed and the situation went out of control. He risked humanity for the sake of his ambitions, and the Synod of the Constantinople Patriarchate supported him in this. This means there was such a policy for a long time. The patriarch sometime, most likely soon enough, will change, but the political principles laid down on October 9-11, 2018 by Bartholomew and the Synod of the Constantinople Patriarchate will exist decades, if not centuries.
However, as it was said, this crisis is so significant and dangerous, it covers such a number of countries that everyone will soon have no time for Poroshenko and his problems.
