Does the Russian Orthodox Church recognize the Pope?

It is the position of the Orthodox Church that it has never accepted the pope as de jure leader of the entire church. All bishops are equal “as Peter”, therefore every church under every bishop (consecrated in apostolic succession) is fully complete (the original meaning of catholic).
