The Orthodox Church and landmines

It was 11 years ago at the 1st International Conference on Landmines in Russia and the CIS that His Beatitude Alexy II of Russia, of blessed memory, contributed a written statement which was read at the opening plenary session. I have not been able to find this statement online, but the final statement of that conference , entitled

His Beatitude Alexy II of blessed memory

His Beatitude Alexy II of blessed memory

“New Steps for a Mine-Free Future”

which can be accessed here: http://www.icbl.org/news/archive/before_2001/statements_moscow

I cannot imagine Patriarch Alexy II taking any other stance than support for these folks who have spoken against landmines, which have disabled many innocent civilians, including children.
