Commentators try to come to grips with how the planned Cuba meeting between two of Christendom’s more or less venerated patriarchs will fall out, when it takes place at the airport in Havana February 12. How will a 1000 years of sorrow and pain be treated in a private conversation no longer than two hours?
It is stated in an article in Radio Echo Moscow: “Этот тот самый случай, когда форма важнее содержания” (= It’s just such an occasion when the form is more important than the content).
And perhaps that is precisely what one could expect.
A highlight of formalism.
