    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.

    This thread gives me an opportunity to post these two little video clips which provide insight into Putin's approach to his faith and beliefs:

    These videos give me more hope and I've learnt more about 'the national Russian identity' .... I'm used to reading western negativity about Russian Nationalism, etc usually because there's not a lot of Russian translations to read.
    A lot of what Putin is saying also reminds me of what Pope Frances and previous popes have said .... and he even mentions Catholics.

    Here is another documentary about Putin, which I've only started watching.

    I wasn't sure where to put it on the forum, so placed it here even though the content is not about faith (I don't know if the documentary gets into that).
