This priest concluded his sermon with the hope that Kazakhstan, Moldova, and Georgia would be reunited with Russia, in addition to Ukraine.

The inhabitants of Ukraine are not interested in being liberated by his operation to de notify their country. The Russian world has arrived one woman shouted sarcastically as she filmed invading troops facing off against a crowd of angry locals just 20 miles from Ukraine's eastern border with Russia. We are not waiting for you, so you get out of here within hours of the first missile strikes on February 24th. Even the orthodox church in Ukraine that is under the patriarch of Moscow turned indignantly to Putin. We ask that you stop this fratricidal war immediately. Metropolitan implored such a war has justification before neither God nor man. Putin's is thus a spiritual as well as military misadventure. Similar to Stalin's pivot at the lowest point on World War II, his reliance upon the orthodox church over the last decade smacks of desperation. It hardly stems from personal commitment to the faith, while projected as a believer from the beginning of his presidency for more than a decade, Putin largely rebuffed the church's policy goals, such as mandatory classes on orthodoxy and public schools.

"How the Russian Orthodox Church is helping drive Putin's war in Ukraine, but Geraldine fagan, fagan is the author of believing in Russia, religious policy after communism. To Vladimir Putin orthodox Christianity is a tool for asserting Moscow's rights over sovereign Ukraine. In his February televised address announcing the recent invasion of Ukraine, he argued the inhabitants of that ancient Russian land were orthodox from time immemorial, and now faced persecution from an illegitimate regime in Kyiv. Led by patriarch kirill, the Russian Orthodox Church is one of the most tangible cultural bonds between Russia and Ukraine. The gilded domes of Kyiv's monastery of the caves and saint Sophia cathedral have beckons pilgrims from across both lands for nigh on a thousand years. With religious rhetoric, Putin taps into a long tradition that imagines a greater Russia extending across present day Ukraine and Belarus in a combined territory known as holy roots. Nostalgic for empire, this sees the spiritual unity of the three nations as key to Russia's earthly power as an exceptional civilization. Encouraged by Putin's special operation, Russian Orthodox nationalists are excitedly recalling the prophecy of a 20th century saints from churning. Now one of Ukraine's beleaguered cities. Just as the one lord God is the indivisible holy Trinity of father, son, and Holy Spirit, this monk foretold, so Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus together are holy roots, and can not be separated..

"From the war torn east part of Ukraine now controlled by Russian backed separatists While she lives in France at the moment she spent 15 years in Kyiv and comes back often with her children Her son was baptized at saint Michael's And I say that I have two mausoleums The east of Ukraine and Kyiv and I can't separate this part of Ukraine I love for me the two Muslims For a long time Russia dictated how the orthodox church operated in Ukraine In a lot of ways mirroring the country's struggle for independence from the same oppressor Another visitor of businessman called Michael says he comes to church a few times of weekend that for him it's important that saint Michael's no longer identifies with the Russian Orthodox Church This church is part of Ukrainian orthodox church and I believe that all churches in Ukraine will be a part of Ukrainian church not Russia church And for me it's identity of Ukraine It's a united people in Ukraine When Russia invaded parts of Ukraine's east in 2014 it prompted Ukrainians to publicly cut cultural ties from its former imperial ruler and reinforce a sense of national identity One of the most acrimonious splits happened in religion the Ukrainian orthodox church is now independent of the powerful Russian Orthodox Church NPR's Joanna cassis joins me now to discuss how this split continues to anger Moscow today Now join up for years Ukrainians were part of the Russian Orthodox Church what that mean for Ukrainians So for years the Russian Orthodox Church which is today still a very powerful church claim Ukraine is part of its territory And that means I think Ukrainian orthodox church reported to the Russian church Many clergy in the Ukrainian church were also loyal to Moscow as a result And that began to change as Ukraine began to grow closer to the west and wanted to break free of Russian influence So how did the pro European revolution in 2014 affect the Ukrainian orthodox church So the church responded by having its own revolution in 2014 a bunch of parishes around the country rebelled parishioners were angry that some of their church leaders did not condemn Vladimir Putin for invading parts of eastern Ukraine So they started switching over to the key of patriarchate This used to be a domestically run church that supported Ukraine's tilt to the west And Vladimir Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church hated this They strongly criticized the creation of this new independent church I spoke to professor Timothy barrique He studies religious life in Ukraine He told me that the Ukrainian church's assertion of independence goes against this idea that Putin promotes that Ukraine and Russia are essentially the same nation I think Putin believes that by rejecting the Russian orthodoxy Ukraine rejects his narrative of unity and happy family with Russia and of course he doesn't like it So the Ukrainians won this battle in 2019 the orthodox church of Ukraine became official The head of the Orthodox Christian world at patriarch Bartholomew's who is based in Istanbul He granted what's called autocephaly And at acetylene Greek word it essentially means that the church is self governed So now are all the orthodox parishes part of the orthodox church of Ukraine So no actually professor brick told me that about 7000 parishes around Ukraine are in this out of cephalus orthodox church of Ukraine But another 12,000 approximately 12,000 are in another church the Ukrainian orthodox church to make it confusing But for shorthand people here call it the Moscow church This church has retained a relationship with the Russian Orthodox Church There's even been an attempt to force this church which has ties to Moscow to change its name to the Russian Orthodox Church just to make it clear But courts have ruled against this Parachutes though are slowly transferring to the independent Ukrainian church professor brick told me that about 500 had switched sides from 2018 to 2019 And parishes are still joining the independent orthodox church of Ukraine today So why is the orthodox church important to Ukrainians So under the Soviet Union the church that exists that wasn't destroyed by the Kremlin But the Kremlin did severely control and regulate it Professor Brad the religion expert He said that though Ukrainians aren't particularly religious they all go to church on Easter and Christmas They baptize their kids because the church is just part of their culture Ukraine is very similar to other Eastern European and post communist countries in this respect in our society's religion is very much connected to the sense of national identity So it is very important to think about yourself as an orthodox if you want to say that you are truly Ukrainian He says about 60% of Ukrainians are part of this church identifies Orthodox Christians So Joanna it sounds like after the Soviet Union collapsed there was a sense that maybe reclaim an independent sense of religion Yeah that's right Professor brick told me obviously you don't have to be orthodox to be truly Ukrainian there are Catholics and Jews here and atheists as well But this split in the orthodox church underscores that more and more Ukrainians You know they don't want to be part of the Russian world They don't want to attend a church where the Moscow patriarch who supports the war is praised And we're priests refused to eulogize fallen Ukrainian soldiers They see the Russian church as just another means of control by the Kremlin That's NPR's Joanna casus with me in front of saint Michael's

"I want to hear about how did mohammed deal with the jews he turned on his heel and strode away and in that moment this girl her she suddenly realized that he the middle east department chairman had lied to her and it's a friend of her parents told the truth in that moment she flipped. It was like okay he lied. You told the truth bruce so that's a little story about trying to bring truth through university which is a difficult process because you and i are both trained in in some form of of science and i was taught something called critical thinking factor fact-based reasoning and that used to be considered the highway. That's the high standard of all thought. Process is it. It's logical argonne rational but now than their professors who tell me that if it's rational that just a form of white supremacy i mean we now are denigrating very foundation of the university university which is rat fact-based reasoning and the universities are committing suicide but doing this makes me very sad because offer society we will be holding debates on this issue not screaming yelling at me that i don't know anything about what i'm doing. Well so basically what he's saying is your white skin. Trumps trumps any ideas he had to make some sense in are even decent. Yes they could say the worst thing you can have is to be racist or condemn me because of the color of my skin. That's like well. That's the high point of left-wing reasoning but and and the point i see right now too is our society is doing doing this and they're allowing it to tribalize so the raw against each other. I don't care what skin color people.. i do care though that they think their political system which is a religious system which is the same him and one and islam is very unique compared to other religions even hindu they have the viewpoint that they should influence you in your inferior by by the very nature and they need to take over you. I don't think any other religion does that on earth do you. I know that i know it doesn't in it's llamas islam is when you first study as long. You may think well. It's kind of like us. It's similarly as similar. It's either. They got a concept one. God for instance what you discover the more you look at it. There's not one single thing and islam that is exactly what we have nothing that is they don't have a real golden rule of ethics instead. They have their own rule which is a muslim. I'm ozone is a brother and a sister to every other moslem but does that. Where am i on that well. It turns amount and also you remember where islam basically worships ally which is a moon war. Mecca medina is not the same god reminded reminded jacob the god of the universe and we hear sometimes idiots like this jesuit pope pushing crews lomb trying to say it's the same god. It's not in fact. I remember one of my friends actually showed me the any mosque of omar round the stone of abraham there they'd written in arabic that it says allah had no son but he had three daughters and actually names miriam the has three daughters so a lot had daughters which are goddesses but no oh son so another saying there's no such thing as a real connection to christianity and the idea that god if it was the same god had a son call you shula which is the incarnation of the father in the flash so this is a very straightforward thing that said there and the guys showed me was a christian who was a stonemason family did stonemason birkin in jerusalem for thousands of years. He was actually rebuilding the church of the holy sepulcher and the russian orthodox church in east jerusalem. So these lying muslims they consider lying actually a sacrament duffy. Well mohammed repeatedly advised muslims to deceive the kaffir it who had advanced this law so now think about that as an ethical principle in business. Let's say that you're in business with a man he's muslim. Everything seems to be jake. It's <hes> he he sees..
Comedian Zelenskiy leads poll in Ukraine presidential election
"The presidential election in Ukraine will take place on the thirty first of March. And there are now forty four contenders. Including the incumbent, petro partial to people called Y tu Michenko, one of him used to be the prime minister on the comedian who plays the president in poplar Ukrainian television program. Let's hear from Christopher Mila journalists in Kiev, Krista. Thanks for joining us. I can we start with this comedian Vladimir Zilenski who is he. Alinsky is a very very popular. Funny, man, comedian TV show actor and stand up comedian. He actually leads a comedy group here that tours around the country and has been doing so for many years, and he kind of earned his fame that way and eventually led to a television program, which is called servant of the people in which he plays history teacher who becomes president overnight after a video of him kind of railing against corruption goes viral online, and he he becomes he becomes president and works over the course of the first season to root out corruption and plays this kind of honest character. And he's now going to piggy backing off of off of that that character that he plays in his own campaign. And he's he's he's kind of saying that, you know, I'm parallel to this to this. Character which equals vessel, and he saying that called Baroda and Zilenski are more or less the same kind of person. And it seems to be working because he's currently at the top of of of all independent polls in Ukraine, and and and certainly is shaping up to do very well in the first round of elections. So he's campaign line as you say is that he says the value of the man he pays on television. Does does he stand for anything else? What else is he is? He pro you know, that's one thing that he's very unclear about, you know, interestingly in place of providing specifics, and and more or less a platform. He's actually been using his large following on social media to more or less crowd source his platform and his perspective cabinet. Should he be elected president? So just two days ago actually yesterday morning. He. Posted a video of himself. Speaking to his two point seven million followers on Instagram saying, aren't you? Tired of presidents appointing. They're cronies to positions of power. Why don't you tell me who you would like to see for the prime minister of Ukraine, the position of the chief of the security service in defense ministry in foreign ministry. So he's kind of taking this this populist approach and appealing to Ukrainians who are more less rather more disenchanted with old faces in politics and are looking for new faces. And what about the incumbent PECH Persian has become more popular again recently? It's not. Yeah. You know, after after slipping in the polls late last year, you had a couple of pretty big political winds in January February the first being the formation of the new independent Ukrainian Orthodox church. And this is this is a new church that is broken away from the Russian Orthodox church. And you know, it was more more of a sort of nationalist move. And that that really gave him a bump in the polls in January. The second thing was was just a couple of weeks ago when he managed to get parliament to a two to approve an amendment to Ukraine's constitution to include the countries aspirations to join the EU in NATO and following those two victories. He he did see a bump in the polls that put him above the former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko and just behind Vladimir Dolinsky. So he's he's been writing a pretty nice way for the past couple of weeks. The real challenges is going to be to to carry that for the next thirty days until until the election and actually took a bit of a head overnight. When a group of investigative journalists published.

He's a represent Representative of Christendom. Now, if one of the Greek Orthodox leaders was to have done something like this. I would be just as concerned if the Queen of England or Prince Charles said, the imaginative Prince Charles announced to the world that he had converted to Islam. You know, what that would do what is the Queen found out? What would that? What would that do? See? We're looking at heads of state also heads a religion or that represent religious groups or the bloodlines of certain religions or and they're all spokespeople for Christendom. They all come together, and they create this ECU medical religion under. You mean, the pope made the first step, but we're looking at the Greek Orthodox who will get the Russian Orthodox church. We look at the Irish Catholic church. We look at what it Protestants join on board. There are plenty of Protestants that could easily say, yeah, you know, we, you know, Martin Luther told us, you know, that the pope was was a heretic. But now, we're thinking, maybe this is a great idea for peace, but see pieces a good thing. I know, but it's also something was foretold in the bible that there would be this ecumenical group that would begin all the churches to begin. And then there'd be a corruption and that rising from this. This this church this quote, horrid Babylon would come the anti Christ. So this is why you know, we should pay attention. This is not because I think the pope is the all-knowing all-seeing infallible guy is because the pope is a representation of Christendom, just like these king Mohammed the sixth, and and this other imam they represent Islam. And how far can they go? They go to the Ayatollah. Would they go to several other groups have been able to do this? And if we did then what would it be the Coca Cola, Pepsi got?

That reminds me of the Russian Orthodox church just a few weeks ago. The leader of the Russian Orthodox church said that technology in its current form. A included could bring about the anti Christ. I I'm thinking more and more CLYDE as as I listened to you talk. And I'm looking at some of my handwritten notes here from the actual game and halftime performance that what this really is. Because I'm still formulated into this really is about summoning something it's about conjuring something, and that goes along with what you said, it goes along with what I said, and I'm sure a lot of other people listening might have seen something to that effect. What is it? I don't know. But I think it's probably pretty. A pretty safe bet that will we're dealing with here is the summoning of some form of artificial intelligence. A Cumulus Ryan y- or the. Is a summoning of you artificial, man. It's the summoning of the new man in the new man, of course, is another metaphor for the word. Antichrist's anti Christ is the new man he's been referred to as the new man. So the new man coming would be the monkey lesser summoning. Artificial intelligence or bringing forth, the singularity or the singularity or the techno child as what turbo taxes talking about near notice. Did you notice also that the child the robo baby said it was three AM? That's the witching hour. That's the time of summoning the time of the cross roads. The so that also plays into this. And also Pringles you notice that man human beings were painted as being the tyrants because the machine said no hands to stack with no mouths to taste with no soda fill with. I'm at the mercy of a cruel uncaring. And then he says play this song. So they make man out to be the tyrant which they also did in a humorous way in the avacado commercial where humans were dogs. That's. To. We'll see. Yeah. It's the it's the it's basically the bringing down of band kind the bringing down of manhood, and creating the new man and the new man is always been called the antichrist's the new man, the trans human man, h plus man, human, plus man, trans humanistic man, man machine, man, and technology, how technology breeds and how humankind becomes psychotic as it lets the machines work for them. And they're they usually just, you know, lay back and they become sentient. That'd be they become. They don't move. They don't do anything. And in that. And that's that's how it goes down. Isn't that kind of like I I did a couple of shows on Bander snatch. And I know you, and I talked about that on the fourth of January relating to bird box. When I finally washed it in an I formulated a show, and some ideas, I noticed, and I think this was part of the metaphor that the writers were going for right that you're making decisions for this character in this interactive television show a net flex, but while you're making decision it's decisions gathering data about you.

"I mean, we saw the decline of pan-arab nationalism liberalism doesn't have a strong popular constituency in much of the Middle East. So. Islamism natural contender then and other contender. We do talk about this a little bit is nationalism. But nationalism by definition is something that is going to be less appealing to be blue aren't up your nation. So if you're doing Saudi nationalism that's not gonna appeal much to an gyp shin. Right. I want to encourage listeners if they wanna deeper dive into Islamism and Muslim Brotherhood and those kinds of us to not only go and look for your paper shoddy. But also listen to podcasts interviews that. We've gather on the Brookings cafeteria. So I want to dive into the spirit case studies that y'all discuss in the paper in a minute, but just to keep our lens broad for a couple of minutes. Here is religion a soft power only seen in Muslim-majority countries. Or is this phenomenon that we might also see in majority Christian countries like the United States or Britain or Canada in other non-muslim states. It's certainly not a phenomenon limited to the Muslim world. We happen to both be scholars whose work primarily focuses on the Muslim world. So. We naturally gravitate towards those cases, but this idea of governments incorporating religion into their foreign policy is not something that's exclusive or unique to Islam. There are other governments today that do this in various ways one things for example, Russia under Putin and putting has certainly tried to leverage the Russian Orthodox church as part of that country's geo-strategic outreach. One things today, for example, of the whole discussion and controversy around Ukraine and the independence of the Ukrainian Orthodox church as one of those issues India is well under the ruling BJP party, which certainly emphasizes it's Hindu identity and is incorporated various forms of outreach to Hindu communities around the world as part of the work that it does Israel also quite aside from the obvious kind of Jewish identity of Israel as a country and as a homeland for the world's Jews and its outreach to Jewish. Communities around the world. Israel has also reached out to conservative evangelical communities in the United States who support for Israel. They want to shore up by emphasizing the kind of historical affinities between Israel and the centrality. Israel is a concept in even Jellicoe fought when it comes to the United States, however, and this country using religion, it gets a little more complicated because the US constitution in the establishment clause of the first amendment specifically prescribes the federal government from endorsing providing funding for any particular former interpretation of religion, which means that the US government has not directly incorporated religion into the way that it has foreign policy that said over the years, the United States government has certainly looked positively on a range of private actors in the United States, including certain missionary organizations and the work that they've done in various countries, particularly in the Cold War where the United States. Saw religion as a useful antidote to the spread of communism. So the United States was very open to Christian missionary organizations from this country and elsewhere doing work around the world. And indeed and -portant part of the story is the fact that the United States, even though week sometimes think today of Islam as a sort of source of risk and object of concern for US foreign policy makers during the Cold War American policymakers saw slobbery differently. They saw a slum as a useful counterbalance to the spread of communism..

The propaganda is incredibly aggressive against the story and trying to discredit it and fight back and Ukrainians are course, celebrating, and what this really means for Ukraine is the Russian Orthodox church, historically. So when the Bolsheviks I took over the, of course, liquidated thousands killed thousands of orthodox church leaders, and then they repress their followers to force them into submission to give up their faith. And we'll automated up happening was they drove people of faith underground into what became known as catacomb churches. So even the most repressive periods of the Soviet regime.

And there have been many Mick Jagger was supposed to have been given a copy of the Muslim make Anita by his then girlfriend Marianne faithfull. And he cited we'll gaffes novel is one of these Parisians behind this track. And it is not actually surprising to see why the stones Lucifer and Bulgakov's fold and have a lot in common. They're both incredibly charismatic and their figures would demand to be recognized by us they both claimed to have witnessed the execution of Jesus Christ. And in fact, they both seem to serve as witnesses to and facilitators of evil, but in the. Final analysis. They insist that the responsibility for this evil lice with man. Do you think the fact that in more recent years, the charges of satanism that have been directed against Bulgakov by some people in Russia could relate back to the song sympathy for the devil? And this charismatic portrayal of the devil in monster Margarita, in some way. Yes, there are certainly several problems with Bulgakov's novel from the perspective of the Russian Orthodox church, and not least one of those problems is the portrayal of Roland who is incredibly KYW's, Matic and likable. And we find ourselves cheering him on as he punches the wrongdoers in cuffs novel. And in fact, the Russian Orthodox church has a very strong presence online in contemporary, Russia and many prominent orthodox website have guest posts by members of the clergy where they provide guidance on how to reach the Austin Magherita.

Finally, as we draw the program for close. Julie you've already said that Bulgakov died at a relatively young age in his late forties of a hereditary disease. And he was still revising the novel on his deathbed wasn't he so I wanted do you think he would have ever guessed of the impact that it's having today? Now, I did he could possibly imagined it, but he was utterly convinced of his importance as writer and that confidence. I think is what made him continue to sit down. After all, this is this novel is mostly written at night in secret and only shared with a tiniest circle of friends, but he was absolutely determined to finish it. He knew that he was going to be his last as he described his last sunset novel.

"Worship. Russia's Orthodox church says it will cut all ties to the patriarch in Istanbul, home of the world's spiritual leader of a roughly what three hundred million orthodox Christians. This will do to Ukraine's quest for an independent church will tell me more. I'm joined on the line from Kiev in Ukraine by the journalist in Bates, welcome back to monocle twenty four in. Could you bring us up today about what led to this. Shirl- try their couple hundred years of orthodox history. That's always a little bit difficult to summarize of. But the big point is that Ukraine wanted to have its own independent orthodox church recognized by Constantinople or stem bull is it's usually cold today. The Russian Orthodox church is strongly opposed that as it would reduce their influence in the country, and in the end of the head of the orthodox church will the first amongst equals, came out in support of the cranium church. This is not greeted well either by Russian politicians or by the clergy, and they have decided to break relations with its Istanbul over that decisions and just explained his effect. This is to have the the global church. Russia has an awful lot of Russian Orthodox church has also lots of money, but it also has a lot of power. Sure. I mean, the first thing is that the Russian Orthodox church is the largest denomination of orthodoxy in the world. So in, you know, saying that it will no longer be in communion with Istanbul. It's also saying we are the most important we can go this alone if we need to sort of my way or the highway kind of thing. Now, it looks like Ukraine will probably be the battleground moving forward because there are a lot of Russian Orthodox believers. There's Thomas church connected to Moscow here in Ukraine, but there's also been a lot of change since the war started here in two thousand fourteen under President Putin. You know, many people have argued that the Russian worth texture ch has just become another ministry under the state that it fulfills his policies and his nother way of approaching that. And then Ukraine with stories bowed Russian Orthodox priests, hiding weapons, or even fighting with the separatists in support of Russia. There has been a large push to support Ukrainian church based here. So there's been a large turn. Over and it looks likely that will continue that something that Moscow is not happy about what has been the reaction from the west Mushipe themselves. This is really big politics. In Ukraine, this has been very exciting people felt like they were giving recognition because for Ukrainians this isn't a new church. They look back to the medieval kingdom of Kevin Roose whose recognition by Constantinople was later transfered in the seventeenth century to Moscow. So the that is recognition of their history, their tradition of something coming back to them. So there's been a lot of excitement. But in some ways, it's very hard to say how much of that is religious and how much of that is political or related to general patriotism, because it's a national church that they're hoping to create, not not an official church, but Snell one brain much linked with the cranium state at its borders today. The timing for this given the the churches do have schisms. Regular basis, but we have seen very much coverage in very much many attempts by Russia to exert its authority over Ukraine openly for a little while now, and one always wonders about the timing when Russia decides to stir something up well, in terms of the church issues, it's been interesting because for a number of different meetings, the Russian Orthodox church made it clear that they did not approve this recognition of Ukrainian Orthodox church that they wouldn't attend meetings. They didn't want to be involved. And that was kind of the equivalent of saying, okay, I don't like this discussion. I'm walking out discussions ended discussion continued, and so now they're moving towards this formal recognition.
