CWN Editor's Note: “The church is meant to be a kind of pantheon that glorifies Russian history and its leaders,” according to the report. “In addition to the face of the current president [Putin] and the dictator who persecuted the Church and religions [Stalin], there is also the defense minister Sergei Shoygu, the foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, the secretary of the Security Council Nikolai Patrushev.”
