The article discusses a little known fact from the history of relations between Albanian and Russian Orthodox Churches. In 1948, in terms of the persecution of the Church by the regime of Enver Hodja, three of the four bishops of the Albanian Orthodox Church were arrested. Wishing to help the Orthodox of Albania his Holiness Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Alexy I with the blessing sent the Bishop Nestor (Sidoruk) to Tirana, where this hierarch took part in the ordination of Paisius (Vodica), the future Primate of the Albanian Church.
