On August 14, 2012, in anticipation of his visit to Poland on Thursday, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia met with Polish mass media correspondents.
In his talk with the journalists, His Holiness pointed to the importance of his forthcoming visit to the Polish Orthodox Church for further development of relations between fraternal Local Churches.
Among the issues highlighted in the interview were Orthodox-Catholic dialogue and protection of traditional Christian values and culture in Europe today, especially in the light of a Joint Message to the Peoples of Russia and Poland to be signed during His Holiness’s visit.
The Primate of the Russian Church also shared his vision of the state of church-society and church-state relations in today’s Russia.
