The Swiss edition, referring to declassified archives, notes that during the Soviet era, Gundyaev worked for the KGB.
Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill (in the world Vladimir Gundyaev) spied for the USSR in the Swiss city of Geneva in the 1970s, where he was the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church at the World Council of Churches. This was stated by the Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung.
The publication notes that the declassified archives indicate that the current patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church previously worked for the KGB and was an intelligence agent under a pseudonym Mikhailov.
In particular, he was engaged in espionage when he was in Geneva. His main task was to influence the World Council of Churches, which at that time included many Soviet agents.
At the same time, the ROC refused to comment on such information in any way.
The Russian Embassy in Switzerland called the publication “an example of Russophobia” and denied all accusations against Patriarch Kirill.
As we have already reported, Patriarch Kirill earlier assured the flock that the Russian occupiers by participating in the invasion of Ukraine would be able to “atone” for their sins.
In addition, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, who supports the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, called on the eve of Christmas to establish a “Christmas truce.”
