I found an orthodox russian patriarch is the list of catholic saints, he is Hermogenes of Moscou and lived in the 7th century.
This is quite interesting cause it shows that there is salvation outside the visible church.
Saint Hermogenes, whose feast is celebrated on April 19, and of whom I expect you are speaking, was an Armenian and was martryed in the 4th century.
Saint Hermogenes of Moscow, whose feast is celebrated on February 17 by the Russian Orthodox Church, was Patriarch of Moscow in the 17th century. The Russian people were not converted to Christianity until the 10th century, so there was no Patriarch of Moscow in the 7th century - in fact, Metropolitan Job wasn't enthroned as first Patriarch of Moscow until 1589.
