On May 20, 2007, the members of the [[ROCOR]] Synod, meeting in Moscow, suspended Bishop Agafangel for inciting schism, disobeying lawful authority, and refusing transfer to the Buenos Aires cathedra.
At an emergency meeting of the [[ROCOR]] Synod on June 28 and 29, 2007, issued a "final letter of warning" to Bishop Agafangel, calling on him to cease all schismatic activity. The Synod also approved the suspension of Abbot Andronik (Kotliaroff), head of the Russian Ecclesiastic Mission in Jerusalem, and other clerics that supported Agafangel. However on December 7, 2007, with the aid of bishops from the [[Holy Synod in Resistance]], with whom ROCOR was in communion until their impending union with Moscow was accepted fact, Agafangel carried out the consecration of
Archimandrite Andronik (Kotrliaroff) as Bishop of Richmond Hill and New York
Hieromonk Sofroniy (Musienko) as Bishop of Saint Petersburg and Northern Russia. These ordinations marked the final breach of the new organization, calling itself the Provisional Supreme Church Authority, with the ROCOR synod.
On November 19, 2008, the Provisional Supreme Church Authority,
while organizing the diocesan structure of the Church, elected Bishop Agafangel to the rank of [[Metropolitan]].
