CWN Editor's Note: “The church is meant to be a kind of pantheon that glorifies Russian history and its leaders,” according to an earlier 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.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
