это наши российские доморощенные матфеевцы. почти совершенно никчемная группа, т.к. даже канализировать в нее почти никого нельзя -- в силу ее особенной упертости и сектантского менталитета. на реальную политику матфеевских синодов (Греции и Кипра) не имеет влияния никакого, но для общего шума в информационном пространстве использоваться может.
