The official website of the “Montenegrin Orthodox Church” schismatic organization has published a message containing information on the arrival of the false “representative of the Georgian Orthodox Church and Patriarch Ilia II of Georgia Bishop Daniel Kiknadze” to them with an official visit. The current Montenegrin government, which is trying to bring a reluctant Montenegrin population into NATO, is also supporting a schism in the Serbian Orthodox Church.
The website also quotes Kiknadze as saying that, “if the Montenegrin people want to have a strong state, they must have a strong Church as well.” He added that this Church deserves to be called “the Montenegrin Autocephalous Orthodox Metropolitanate.”
He went on, “Georgia once had similar problems, too. But, nevertheless, it managed to get its autocephaly back,” trying to compare the current situation in Montenegro with Georgia’s autocephalous Church.
However, in reality, Kiknadze currently has nothing to do with the Georgian Orthodox Church and His Holiness Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II.
According to information from the Anti-raskol.ru (“Anti-schism”) website, during his life Kiknadze has gone through many schismatic jurisdictions and at the moment he is known as “Metropolitan of Rome, Paris and Western Europe” within the so-called “Synod of the Greek Old Calendarist Church”.
