The document, entitled “The Orthodox Church’s Contribution to the Triumph of Peace, Justice, Freedom, Brotherhood and Love among Nations and to the Elimination of Racial and Other Forms of Discrimination,” was deemed “unacceptable in its current form” by the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The governing body recommended the approval of another draft conciliar document, entitled “The Importance of Fasting and Its Observance Today,” and also recommended the adoption of changes to the document proposed by the governing body’s biblical-theological commission.
