Patriarch Kirill, the head of Russia's Orthodox Church, will be excluded from the latest package of EU sanctions against Russia after Hungary's objection, APA reports citing Euronews.

Brussels accuses Patriarch Kirill of supporting the invasion of Ukraine and acting as a propagandist for Vladimir Putin’s regime.

In a sermon delivered in early May, Kirill stated that "Russia has never attacked anyone" and that "we don't want to go to war".
