Archbishop Hilarion Alfeyev

In the presence of the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace, the Russian Orthodox prelate in charge of ecumenical relations has criticized "the liberalism and relativism which have become so characteristic of today’s Anglican theology.”

Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, Chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate's Department of External Church Relations, also spoke of “the possibility of establishing an Orthodox-Catholic alliance in Europe for defending the traditional values of Christianity."
