Having been on the other side of the universe from Orthodoxy at the time, can you elaborate on the conflicts?

In a word, it's Uniatism. If I were to fashion an academic response to your question, I would entitle it: "Uniatism: Same Shit, Different Day". Uniatism refers to the papalized strategy of hoodwinking less knowledgeable Orthodox faithful who are located in traditional Orthodox countries into becoming apostates by convincing them that they could remain Orthodox in communion with the Pope of Old Rome. Uniatism was the spiritual counterpart of Hapsburg expansionism prior to the empire's collapse. Uniatism lives on as Old Rome's crusade against the Orthodox whilst feigning friendship. It inspired Old Rome's latest campaign of referring to its Unia apostates as "eastern christians" as if they and the Orthodox are part of a big happy family. Go to orthodoxchristianbooks.com and read Vladimir Moss' articles. He wrote "The Catholic Assault on Russia", which is more to your current point.
