This event occurred in Germany.

The Roman Catholic Novus Ordo Cardinal passed out blessed bread at the conclusion of the Orthodox Divine Liturgy.

Ecumenism raises its ugly head once again.

I’m not a fan but I have a hard time seeing this as news.

 I mean this would pale in comparison to say Assisi right?

How does one know that this was an Orthodox church and not an Eastern Catholic one?

I know this doesn't make any difference to the substance of the story, but I don't think the prelate is a Cardinal, because his sash looks to be the amaranth red that Bishops wear, not the scarlet red that Cardinals wear.

Maybe the news is that this is in fact no longer news.

He probably had a hankering for something old fashioned and was fed up with plain interiors of the modernist temples.

Exactly. Francis prays with non-Christian Buddhists, Moslems, and Jews, and says that they all worship the same one God as do the Christians. Thus he denies the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

It is almost certainly a Byzantine Rite Catholic CHurch.  No Orthodox priest I have ever known or known of would allow a non-Orthodox prelate to do anything of the kind.  Most Orthodox lay people would be appalled and refuse to participate.

No, it is Greek Orthodox. Using my mediocre Greek reading (those with more knowledge, please correct me if I'm wrong), I can see that this church is called:
Αγίου Δημητρίου στο Άαχεν Γερμανίας - Agios (or Saint) Demetrios, and it's in Aachen, Germany.

It is Greek Orthodox. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Michael%27s_Church,_Aachen)
