Speaking of which I have a question to the article's authors. In which way the link with UAOC implies the apostolic succession?
- Correct me if I am wrong but the original UAOC's claim on the apostolic succession is rather strechted. If I remember correctly, the relics were used in the ordaining its first bishops, rather than the real bishops. Please elaborate.
- If the succession is meant through the link of UOC's of Canada (or the USA) with the Ecumenical Patriarch that currently exists, it is again not clear how this affects the UAOC itself since both the UOCoC and UOCoUSA are separate from the UAOC churches. Finally, canonicity of UOCoC and oUSa is not universally recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Communion despite their acceptance by Constantinople. This is perhaps just a matter of time.
Please elaborate anyone and correct me if I made any mistakes. I hope this is more interesting and useful than the copyright issues. Thanks, --Irpen 05:20, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
- The original UAOC's claim on the apostolic succession is rather irrelevant. This group apparently got its succession from modern ("third resurrection") UAOC, re-established 1990. Modern UAOC does not share succession with 1921 church and derives its succession AFAIK mostly from MP, with some participation from diaspora.
- At the time of the "third resurrection", there were some links with diaspora churches. After all, first UAOC Patriarch was (however briefly) Met. Mstyslav of blessed memory, Primate of UOC of USA. I'm not sure how significant this is/was.
- Alleged "non-recognition" of UOCoC and oUSa is a vicious rumor among some Russian Orthodox. Ukrainian bishops are members of both SCOBA and the new Assembly of Bishops of North and Central America, and no one (including ROC) seriously doubts their legitimacy. Come to think of it, it would be rather uncanonical for other Churches to try judging canonicity of individual eparchies within the Church of Constantinople.

There are more than one
The problem of the article, contrary to the AfD nomination, is not lack of notability but a confusion. There are several denominations in Russia under similar names.
The most well-known is Русская Истинно-Православная Церковь (Russian True Orthodox Church) also known as a "Catacomb church.
Another one is Истинно-Православная Церковь — Московская Митрополия (True Orthodox Church - Moscow Metropolia) formely known as Российскaя Истинно-Православная Церковь (Russia's True Orthodox Church). The TOC-MM seems to be the subject of this article, if I am not mistaken. So, it probably needs to be moved.
- Yes! do it! You can find English about RTOC of Archbishop Tikhon at http://www.catacomb.org.ua/modules.php?name=Pages&go=page&pid=1099 Note that when you gave the brackets to 'Russian True Orthodox Church' it created a link back to this article.

- Russian True Orthodox Church (Russkaya Istinno Pravoslavnaya Cerkov, RIPC) is a split from Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (Vitaliy Branch) - RPCZ(V), founded in 2000. RIPC has broken away from RPCZ(V) in 2002. Today, RIPC positions itself as successor of Catacomb Church. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:01, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
This article needs grammar.
This article needs to support the assertions it makes with citations from reliable sources
- Most of it comes from the U.S. Web site for this church and should be sourced thereto. Sincerely, GeorgeLouis (talk) 18:16, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Would everyone agree with the sentence "The Russian True Orthodox Church is a denomination that separated from the Russian Orthodox Church during the early years of Communist rule in the Soviet Union"? I'm not sure members of the RTOC would agree they are a 'denomination' (might be a semantic problem, maybe of translation) that 'separated'. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 20:31, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Name is incorrect
This page is called "True_Orthodox_Church" but should be called instead "The Russian True Orthodox Church". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Username148120 (talk • contribs) 05:30, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
