The Russian Church on Primacy

This is a new and important document that lays out the position of the Russian Orthodox Church on the subject of Primacy. I suspect (the cynic in me) that it was meant as much for Constantinople's eyes as Rome's.

This has been in the works for some time, so thank you for posting this!

Now, in 100 or fewer words, please compare and contrast in detail this document with the Ravenna statement. Bonus points will be awarded for not including the word "millennium". You have 2 hours to post your work. Good luck!

A singular weakness in the document seems to be that it does not address the claim, put forth most recently by Benedict, that Rome's supremacy, as interpreted by Rome as havin its origin in Christ's Tu es Petrus, predates EVERY other consideration and thereby trumps all
