Technically the Constitution of Russia says,

Article 14

1. The Russian Federation is a secular state. No state or obligatory religion may be established.

2. Religious associations shall be separate from the State and shall be equal before the law.

It is the Constitution of the United States of America which technically does not mention "separation of church and state." You also won't find the word "secular" in the US Constitution.

Secularism is a religion.

But don’t they have a State Church? The Orthodox Church occupying that status?
