Patriarch Kirill urges Russian, U.S. Christians to work towards overcoming standoff

Moscow, March 5, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia said that the Christians of the United States and Russia should combine peacemaking efforts and help overcome the political standoff between their countries.

"I think that Christians do have such peacemaking potential, and this should be put into action, particularly when things are starting to get bad," Patriarch Kirill said at a meeting with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's head Franklin Graham.

"The more complex relations get, not least between our countries, the more responsibility lies with Christians to change the world for the better," the patriarch said.
