The Russian Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill on Friday presented the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov with the Order of Glory and Honour of the III degree in connection with the politician’s 70th anniversary, the website of the Moscow Patriarchate reports.

“Despite the fact that there are different forces in the political life of the country, with which the Church never identifies itself, it always defends those fundamental values ​​without which our people and our society cannot exist,” the patriarch said, presenting the award.

According to Kirill, when it comes to preserving basic values, “and these are the values ​​of faith, morality, culture, unity of our people, then all political forces should be together.”

In turn, Zyuganov presented Patriarch Kirill with a commemorative medal of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation “70 years of the liberation of the Crimea and Sevastopol from the Nazi invaders.”

The Order of Glory and Honour was established in 2004 and is the second oldest order of the Russian Orthodox Church. It is awarded for a significant contribution to interchurch and interreligious cooperation, to the strengthening of peace and friendship between peoples.


  1. Dugin 2012: “We are for Stalin & the Soviet Union.That Orthodoxy is the bulwark of our spiritual identity is clear to any bearer of the Soviet identity.”

    Dugin 2020 posted a link on his Russian Facebook (VK) page, referencing an article ‘Towards a Traditionalist Reading of Leninism’, which was headlined with the following poem:

    Resurrection – Third Rome.

    “Russian Orthodoxy is communist
    and Russian communism is Orthodox.
    All the troubles in the history of Russia stemmed
    from the discord between Orthodoxy and communism.
    As soon as they realize their
    deepest unity, Russia will rise,
    regain its former greatness.”

    Putin 2018: “Lenin’s body as Christian relic.”

    Putin 2016: “I like communist and socialist ideas.”

    Operation SIG.

    Putin 2010: Putin Says Orthodoxy “Closer to Islam than Catholicism Is.”

    Putin 2019: “Islam and Orthodox Christianity Have the Same Values.”

  2. Orthodoxy = heresy, just like faith-only, free-salvationism protestant branches, just much smaller one. Muhammedists persecuted Catholic church, this was their main tactic, while Orthodox churches in Muhammedist states were left alon and were gladly supporting muhammedians. Kiril is a former KGB agent, probably a freemason and crypo-Jew (or due to his looks, very likely actual Jew) who amassed billions in Putin’s criminal enterprise called Rothschild Corporatio Branch-Russia. Instead of Orthodoxy, Russians and other Christians should thank the Jesuits for being main enlighteners who discovered that Earth is a ball, not living in pagan flat-Earth myths and legends.

  3. Yeah it’s just an infiltrated and repurposed front at the hierarchy level since at least the communists took over no surprise there. I mean if they’ve taken over the Catholic Hierarchy the other lesser churches are no problem.

    —On another note since I don’t do socialist media, please stop pushing wattsupwiththat. From an older article pointing out the Pope’s green blasphemy in the comments they allowed all sorts of jew slanders as to the Catholic Church as a whole, when I tried to point out the responsibility of the judaeo-masonic-marxist international mafia my comment was not allowed on the site. So there is an editorial policy of jew pandering in wattsupwiththat, suggesting it’s a dialectical jew owned entity, NOT a true dissenting voice. Just look at the terrible new structure to the site, seems very jewish flashy to me. I saw the jew “experts” you pointed out on tw and it reminded me.
