Archbishop Chrysostom of Nova Justiniana and all Cyprus has said that his country should withdraw from the EU, as the EU would cease to exist in the future, as it is coming apart. In an interview with the Russian Channel One, he said: ‘Currently, the economies of Spain, Portugal and Italy are in danger. If the Italian economy goes down, just like our economy, the EU will not resist. The people who rule the EU, particularly, those making decisions in the so-called troika, do not understand many things; that will lead to the collapse of the EU. This is why I believe we (Cyprus) should withdraw from the Union before the collapse takes place’.
