Abstract

This research deals with the participation of bishop Grigory in the organization of the parishes of Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia on the territory of Moscow Patriarchate at the beginning of the 90s of the 20th century. Bishop Grigory was one of the leaders who insisted on archimandrite Valentin Rusantsov’s consecration, and later he supported the idea of giving independence to those parishes. After the separation of Russian parishes from Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, bishop Grigory became the main apologist of this structure.
