The patriarch believes that this does not derive from “a high salary”, but from “moral sense”
“The Russian military engaged in the special military operation in Ukraine and the Donbass show surprising examples of courage and self-denial, and it all stems from their ‘inner moral sense'”. She said it the Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, which has repeatedly blessed President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine. “Our young people are now defending Russia on the battlefield,” said Kirill quoted by Radio Svoboda.
The head of the Russian Orthodox Church said that the priests who “look after” the Russian army told him of numerous examples of courage and sacrifice. The patriarch believes that this does not derive from “a high salary”, but from “moral sense”.
Kirill also said that the Western world is currently experiencing a “decline of faith” and new places of worship are constantly opening up in Russia, which he called “God’s miracle”.
