On January 31, 2022, His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem received H.E. Anatoly Viktorov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the State of Israel.

Special emphasis during the talk was placed on the necessity to continue work done for maintaining Christian presence in the Holy Land and for guaranteeing the sanctity of Orthodox religious sites and the safety of Christian believers. Emphasized as counterproductive were any attempts to change the historical interconfessioal status quo in Israel, including the Old City of Jerusalem.

Ambassador Viktorov underscored the commitment of the Russian Federation to the protection of the interests of Christians in the Middle East region.

Attending the meeting were Hegumen Nikon (Golovko), secretary of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem, and Hieromonk Afanasy (Bukin), treasurer of the Mission.
