CWN Editor's Note: The Russian Archdiocese of Western Europe, which is affiliated with the Patriarchate of Moscow, has signed a pastoral accord with the Orthodox Metropolis of Gaul, which is affiliated with the Patriarchate of Constantinople. The agreement seems to signal a thaw in the relations with the two leading Orthodox sees. Moscow and Constantinople broke off ties after the Constantinople Patriarchate recognized an independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
