Earlier this month, the Western media speculated on where VVP was. If they had half a brain, they’d remember that he goes on otpust to Valaam every year right around this time. The above image shows VVP and HH confabbing in Valaam… reports also had it that he met with “Ukrainian” industrialists and public figures at the monastery. Firstly, VVP is a devout Orthodox Christian, and going on otpust is one of the things that we do. Secondly, Valaam gives him a venue to meet with people away from the media and public, well-secured and off-the-beaten-track. Besides, this is a regular part of his agenda… every year, he goes on otpust to clear his mind and attend to his religious duties.
The Western media doesn’t understand Christianity nor does it want to… as for VVP, he simply goes on otpust every year… we’re Christians; that’s what we do…
