From 1994 to early 2006, the synod had been in full communion with the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia]] (ROCOR), though relations have cooled recently because of the recent negotiations between ROCOR and the [[Church of Russia]]. As of February 2006, the synod severed communion with the ROCOR. The synod continues to maintain communion with the [[Old Calendar Orthodox Church of Romania]] (Synod of Metropolitan Vlasie). In 1993, the synod ordained, and maintains communion with, Bishop Photii of the [[Old Calendar Orthodox Church of Bulgaria]].
On 17 November 2007 the Synod entered into a [http://ruschurchabroad.com/eng071116.pdf "Memorandum Regarding Principles of Coöperation Between the Greek and Russian Anti-Ecumenists"], which defined its relationship with the "Provisional Supreme Ecclesiastical Authority of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad" [http://ruschurchabroad.com/engindex.htm] under Bishop Agafangal.
