“I constantly find myself asking, What is he really up to?”
I’ve been wondering the same thing. Putin is a cynical guy who will do or say whatever is expedient. It’s hard to believe that this Russian KGB thug is suddenly a Christian. Although I welcome his words to the Europeans - but this is definitely Bizarro World. I read - here probably - that he is doing this Christian schtick to help unify Russia and promote the birth rate...but there must be more to it than that. In any case, it’s refreshing to hear these words coming out of a world leader’s mouth.
He is surrounded by Muslims and Chinese to the south and if the Muslims continue to infiltrate Europe maybe on the west too. He seems to recognize that this is a fight to the death. The Chinese seem more rational but the Muslims are downright insane from our perspective. Probably more and worse Islamic terrorism in Russia than in the borders of the USA.
