1843 – Articles about Athos and Putin in Time Magazine and The Spectator

GREECE-RUSSIA-POLITICS

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)
