Here an article about Putins interest in the Holy Mountain in the Spectator,  a weekly British conservative magazine.


Russian President Vladimir Putin (C) visits the St Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos, in Karyes on May 28, 2016. Putin, who has often talked about his strong Orthodox faith, will join celebrations for the 1,000th anniversary of the Russian presence at the ancient, all-male monastic community of Mount Athos. The visit, Putin’s first to the EU since December, comes at a low ebb in relations between Russia and Europe over the conflict in Ukraine that broke out in 2014, with sanctions still in force against Moscow. / AFP / POOL / Alexei Druzhinin (Photo credit should read ALEXEI DRUZHININ/AFP/Getty Images

  1. Moved to tears and hoping we once will meet in Heaven, together with our Father, our Saviour, the Holy Spirit, our Holy Mother, all our beloved ones, all holy angels and – our brother Wladimir. I appreciate him very much. May he bring peace on earth.

    That Spectator article was vile. Thankfully most readers ridiculed it in the comments section.
