The article reviews noncanonical orthodox organizations, communities of believers and clerics included into noncanonical orthodox jurisdiction in force on the territory of Samara Metropolia of the Russian Orthodox Church. Despite abhorrence of the legal church these communities could not bring a lot of adepts into their fold and extend the schism. Almost all described factious groups stay canonically isolated, and sometimes change their jurisdiction. Special focus in the article is on the communities that used to remain under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia.
