According to RIA Novosti, the visit will last two days.

During this time, the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church will lead the diocesan meeting of the clergy of the Kaliningrad Metropolis, an all-night vigil at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and consecrate the Cathedral of St. Cyril and Methodius Equal-to-the-Apostles.

Earlier it became known that Patriarch Kirill and the Ombudsman for Children in Russia Maria Lvova-Belova were included in the UK sanctions list.

The head of the Synodal Department for Church Relations with Society and the Media of the Moscow Patriarchate called the restrictions absurd and counterproductive.
