[An excerpt from a letter from Archbishop Gregory of the ROAC]
We made inquiries and learned that all the money that was on him, in the amount of almost $100,000, was taken away. He was escorted back to Russia by two Russian security officials from the airline "Aeroflot." If he returns to America, he will have to appear in court to defend himself. We were told that it may be up to 10 years before the Metropolitan will be allowed to travel within the United States again.
