'''Metropolitan Nicholas''' ({{lang-ru|Митрополит Николай}}, born as decular name '''Boris Dorofeyevich Yarushevich''', {{lang-ru|Борис Дорофеевич Ярушевич}}; [[January 13]], 1892 <small>(December 31, 1891 [[wikipedia:Old Style and New Style dates|OS]])</small>, [[wikipedia:Kaunas|Kovno]] – [[December 13]], 1961, [[wikipedia:Moscow|Moscow]]), was a [[bishop]] of the [[Russian Orthodox Church]].
He supported the controversial 1927 declaration of [[Sergius (Stragorodsky) of Moscow|Metropolitan Sergius]], pledging loyalty of the Church to the Soviet authorities without concurrence of the imprisoned Patriarchal ''locum tenens'', [[Peter (Polyansky) of Krutitsy]], and Sergius' subsequent collaboration with them.
