Russian Orthodox Church and Ecumenism

I have been reading some interesting stuff about the attitude of the Russian Orthodox Church towards ecumenism. None of this is new material, in fact, most of it appeared around about the year 2000. This is led some to compare the main document "Basic Principles of the Attitude of the Russian Orthodox Church toward the Other Christian Confessions" to the document that appeared from the Vatican at about the same time. "Dominus Iesus”. I was also recently corresponding with our local Russian Orthodox priest, who commented that he will is about to leave for Europe, where he would be visiting Bishop Hilarion of Vienna. It is worth googling Bishop Hilarion and ecumenism, as this gives rise to some very interesting material. Here are the links:
