Russian Orthodox Patriarch Begins Visit to Central, Eastern Siberia

Patriarch Kirill (Gundyayev) of Moscow has begun a pastoral visit to central and eastern Siberia. The visit, which will include stops in the eastern Magadan Region and the central Irkutsk Region and Republic of Tyva, began with the Republic of Khakassia in central Siberia, where the patriarch met with Archbishop Ionafan (Tsvetkov) of Abakan and other hierarchs of the Russian and Moldovan Orthodox Churches in the local diocesan Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Abakan before going on to tour the institutions of the Eparchy of Abakan in the Khakassian capital.
