There are national Churches, there are diaspora Churches, and there are Churches which exist in territories of other national Churches (Japan and Ukraine, for example). I fail to see how every small breakaway territory should get its own church just because it has political independence. Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, all are under Antioch. No one is fomenting for separate Churches there. All Africa is under the Patriarchate of Alexandria. There are countries in Africa with more Orthodox Christians than Abkhazia, but they are not clamoring to be autocephalous. Accusing Orthodox Churches of cultural genocide just because they say "no" to dismemberment is over the top. If you want to quote history, you had better do some in depth research instead of trotting out tired examples. Why do you want the Orthodox Church to bow to political pressure from politicians who show little or no concern for the Church? In FYROM, the Macedonian Orthodox Church has been a pawn of the state since communism, and continues to be so, even though the Archdioces of Ochrid is autonomous and His Eminence Jovan is not on a program of calling Macedonians Serbs. In Ukraine, the Russian Metropolia is also Autonomous, and has the majority of Orthodox Ukrainians in its fold--Ukrainians who identify as Ukrainians, not Russians, even if many do not speak Ukrainian. Yes, it's complicated all around the world, but to side with one group automatically because it wants independence is blind.
