The 2008 war between Russia and Georgia left much bitterness on both sides. On Monday of this week, Patriarch Ilia II of the Georgian Orthodox Church called for reconciliation between the two countries.

From the article:
Quote
"Your Holiness, those political relations that have taken shape between Russia and Georgia are completely unacceptable," he said to Patriarch Kirill I, after co-celebrating the liturgy with the Russian Orthodox leader. "We are close Orthodox peoples, and these relations were created by the envy of our foes."
