Russian Orthodox Church honors anti-Communist protestors
Catholic World News - August 24, 2011
A leading Russian Orthodox Church official has paid tribute to Russians who died in protests against Communism in August 1991.
“We gathered together here to pray for people who had lost their lives in defending freedom and motherland,” said Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the synodal department for Church and society relations. “There is a good reason that our people have chosen the path leading to transfiguration and justice after 70 years of ideological oppression and forced atheism.”
