No. They are acting like Russia again.
If Turkey turns the Hagai Sophia into a mosque again, they might use the Crimea for what they originally wanted to. A staging area to retake the Second Rome.
I am not surprised they moved against the Ukrainian Catholics. The old Orthodox view them as traitors for the sack of Constantinople. Maybe collaborators would be a better term.
Either way, they are viewed as non Slavic.
There is a body of Russian Orthodox prophetic literature about Mother Russia driving Islam out of Eurasia and reestablishing Orthodoxy in Constantanople and Christianity throughout Europe.
“The old Orthodox view them as traitors for the sack of Constantinople”
I think almost everyone does,,, except of course, they themselves.
