Moscow, May 14, Interfax - The Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed concerns about the encroachments on the rights of Christians in the UK.

"The situation with human rights in the UK is characterized by considerable manifestations of racism and xenophobia and encroachments on the rights of Christians," Russian Foreign Ministry envoy on human rights, democracy, and supremacy of law Konstantin Dolgov said in the State Duma.

Specifically, Dolgov recalled the recent ban on wearing crosses in the UK.

Speaking about other human rights issues in the UK, Dolgov mentioned the encroachments on the rights of immigrants, illegal phone-tapping, and torture of terrorism suspects.

"We are hoping that the British administration will address the concerns expressed by human rights organizations in connection with serious problems in a fully serious and responsible manner," he said.

Gotta love it! Hypocrytical goody-two-shoes states like the UK getting back some of their own.

What’s Russian for “what goes around comes around”?

Fraying at the edges, are they. As the economy goes down, this will get worse. A lot worse. You can take it to the bank.

My thought exactly-I can still remember one of my nuns in Catholic school warning us what might happen if we didn't say the rosary for Russia's conversion. It wasn't until years later that I discovered she and her order had been in a convent in East Prussia when the Soviets "liberated" them. Most of the nuns were murdered after being raped.

Back in the 20th century, who would have believed that in the second decade of the 21st century Russia (of all places) would level credible charges of anti-Christian and other human rights violations against Great Britain(of all places)?

The world has truly gone Through the Looking Glass. Madness prevails. The Western has truly lost its way.

This brought me to my knees.

We must pray for the conversion of the decadent, that they regain their sanity and moral compass.

Too bad their foreign policy is still 100% Soviet.

Amazing isn't it.

There are some ROC prophecies about the AntiChrist that seem to be playing out. In short, they got the persecution first, but we get it next.
