Russian President Putin and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill of Moscow are working diligently to establish a Russkiy mir (“Russian world” – Русский мир), where people are free to live without the threat of progressivism, liberalism, modernism, radical feminism, atheism, secular humanism, and Western degeneracy to their and their children’s lives! Russia is reclaiming Ukraine to be a part of this new world. Ukraine historically was one with Russia for over 1,000 years.
Since the Soviet Union broke up in December 31, 1991, pro-Western, pro-America, pro-NATO forces entered Ukraine seeking to tear it away from Russian and establish it as a Western nation with modern, decadent Western values of degeneracy! Billionaire leftist George Soros was one of the first to get involved in newly independent Ukraine. He and others (with the full support of the CIA) sought to counter any Russian involvement in Ukraine, even forcing the pro-Russian duly elected president of Ukraine out of the office and after a few months replacing him with a pro-EU, pro-America, pro-NATO puppet president subservient to a cabal of Western elites.
In a March 6 speech, Patriarch Kirill depicted the war in spiritual terms. “We have entered into a struggle that has not a physical, but a metaphysical significance,” he said. He contended that some of the Donbas separatists were suffering for their “fundamental rejection of the so-called values that are offered today by those who claim world power.” He stated that this world power is posing a “test for the loyalty” of countries by demanding they hold gay pride parades to join a global club of nations with its own ideas of freedom and “excess consumption.”
Kirill is exactly correct. The genocidal Ukraine government for the past 8 years has murdered over 14,000 Russians in the separatist regions. These brave Christian freedom fighters were seeking to return to Mother Russia and were sick of the Western-led degeneracy they saw in Ukraine during the past 30 years! President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is no hero. He instigated this conflict and courted the EU, NATO, and American involvement in Ukraine since he’s been in power.
It was now essential to “defend God’s truth” that Russians and Ukrainians were “really one people”, joined by a “common national identity”, Patriarch Kirill told a Sunday congregation in Christ the Saviour Cathedral, Moscow on March 20.
“May the Lord protect the Russian land and the peoples who today inhabit this land in Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. All of us, representatives of these three peoples, are connected by a single Slavic culture. . .
“Our most important prayer must be that the devil does not permit brother to raise hand against brother. . . We are a united people who, though living today in different countries, came out of a single Kiev baptismal font, united by a common faith and common historical destiny.”
Patriarch Kirill said that Russia had defeated historic encroachments by Mongol-Tatar and Polish armies, “not through miracles or angels descending from heaven with swords, but thanks to the strength and courage of its army”, and had also survived the 1917 Bolshevik revolution by preserving a “system of common values”.
Patriarch Kirill and President Putin are bold and courageous Christian leaders! They are restoring Russia to the state it was in before the scourge of atheistic communism! They are improving upon the mistakes made by the tsars. They are establishing a truly Christian nation! May God bless them. Long live Putin and Kirill! Putin is the protector of Christendom!! All Christians of the world should support him.
The Cold War between the Soviet Union and America ended 30 years ago! RUSSIA IS NOT OUR ENEMY! America should be a close ally of Russia. It is anti-Russian bigotry we see among American mainstream media, politicians, celebrities, academics, etc. America and the West are now post-Christian. The popular culture is atheist, secular humanist, radical feminist, anti-white racist (viz BLM), believes in the evolution of species, is pro-homosexuality, is pro-transgenderism, is anti-Christian, is anti-conservative politically, and is all-around decadent, hedonistic, hyper-consumeristic, materialistic, completely depraved, and utterly Satanic!! This is what Putin is fighting against. He won’t let it happen in Christian Russia.
Here is President Putin at a Christmas service led by Patriarch Kirill.
Here is a touching video where President Putin talks about how Patriarch Kirill’s father, a local priest in St. Petersburg (Leningrad), baptized Putin in the early 1950s!
Here is a speech by Patriarch Kirill from March 7. He discusses the Ukraine conflict.
Here is the Russian followed by an English translation.
Восемь лет идут попытки уничтожить то, что существует на Донбассе. А на Донбассе существует неприятие, принципиальное неприятие так называемых ценностей, которые сегодня предлагаются теми, кто претендует на мировую власть. Сегодня есть такой тест на лояльность этой власти, некий пропуск в тот «счастливый» мир, мир избыточного потребления, мир видимой «свободы». А знаете, что это за тест? Тест очень простой и одновременно ужасный — это гей-парад. Требования ко многим провести гей-парад и являются тестом на лояльность тому самому могущественному миру; и мы знаем, что если люди или страны отвергают эти требования, то они не входят в тот мир, они становятся для него чужими.
For eight years, there have been attempts to destroy what exists in the Donbas. And in the Donbas there is a rejection, a fundamental rejection of the so-called values that are now offered by those who claim world power. Today there is such a test of loyalty to this government, a certain pass to that “happy” world, the world of excessive consumption, the world of visible “freedom”. And you know what that test is? The test is very simple and at the same time terrible – it is a gay parade. The demands on many to hold a gay pride parade are a test of loyalty to the most powerful world; and we know that if people or countries reject these demands, they do not enter the other world, they become strangers to it.
President Putin is one of the very few Christian leaders who are actually defending Christians, crushing Islamic radicals who are the number 1 persecutor of Christians worldwide, promoting Christian values in their country, and fighting against Western degeneracy!
The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church has told Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin this week of the urgent situation Christians are facing around the world in persecution hot spots, and has asked him to use his power to aid their situations.
RT online reported that Metropolitan Hilarion, foreign relation chief of the Russian Orthodox Church presented evidence and statistics that stated, “Every five minutes one Christian was dying for his or her faith in some part of the word.”
Christians face persecution in many nations; from church demolition in Afghanistan and bombings of churches in Iraq, to the violence against Christians taking place in rebellious towns in Syria.
After delivering the facts, Metropolitan Hilarion asked Putin to make protection and defense of Christianity around the globe a major part of his foreign policy.
And, as reported by Interfax, Putin replied, “You needn’t have any doubt that that’s the way it will be,” assuring Hilarion that Russian foreign policy would defend Christians from persecution abroad.
Putin’s recent actions seem to confirm his promise. Last week, Putin vetoed a U.N. motion calling for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad to step down. Syrian Christians received this as good news. Assad is of the Alawite sect of Islam. Alawites and Christians are both religious minorities in Syria. Syrian Christians feel that sharing this minority status means Assad will provide them with protection. A Syrian Christian woman even told The Global Post, “Thank God for Russia. Without Russia we are doomed.”
Putin has long been a supporter of Christianity and Christian values within Russia. He has called for the Church to play a larger role in citizens’ social lives, better religion classes in schools, and television programs emphasizing religious values.https://www.christianpost.com/news/vladimir-putin-vows-to-defend-christianity-worldwide.html
