On Thursday, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias visited the flagship of the Northern Fleet, the nuclear-powered battlecruiser TARKR 099 Pyotr Veliki, the world’s largest non-aviation warship. On 28 July 2012, a decree of the President of the Russian Federation awarded the Order of Nakhimov to the cruiser “for the courage, dedication, and professionalism shown by the ship company in performing its command assignments”. During his pastoral visit, he told sailors:
The readiness of the Northern Fleet, which keeps the peace in Russia and abroad, depends largely on the spiritual strength and faith of its sailors; spiritual support of our forces is one of the key tasks of the Church. Those who take the military oath especially need spiritual help; we all believe that the sailors of the Northern Fleet will show full combat readiness if they have strong faith and strong spirit.
Addressing the staff of the Northern Fleet after his arrival in Severomorsk, Vladyki Kirill emphasised:
As we’re a nuclear power, spiritual healthiness in our personnel is key to maintaining the peace, both domestically and globally; it guarantees that they can carry out their duties, with all that such brings to the life of the Motherland. Maybe, one day, there may come a time that the outcome of a battle or a successful endeavour will depend precisely on the spiritual state of our soldiers.
In turn, Vice-Admiral N A Yevmenov, Commander of the Northern Fleet, told the patriarch:
For all Orthodox, a word from our pastor and the Word of God mean a lot. Let’s take some examples… Admirals Ushakov and Nakhimov are holy names for every one of the Orthodox warriors under the flag of St Andrew the Apostle. Our grandfathers fought under this flag… under this flag, we go out to sea and carry out our service. The words, “All those who go to sea pray to God”… these aren’t empty words for us.

The illegitimate pro-Anglo Uniate junta ruling the Ukraine banned the KPU. I’d observe that not only are the commies still at large (there’s no prison big enough to hold ’em all), they haven’t changed their minds. In the past, they were feisty, anti-oligarch, and truly patriotic to the bone. All that the Uniate folderol did was to drive the KPU underground. Now, it’s harder to control and monitor the commies, but the Galician Uniate hillbillies aren’t noted for brains (Galicia is the Dogpatch of Holy Rus… it’s the poorest and least-educated region in the Ukraine)… they’re doglike followers of whatever Western sugar-daddy that throws scraps to them. The American neoliberals wanted to persecute the Reds, and the Uniates went along, even though it wasn’t in their best interests.
After the war ends and the Uniate junta ends up in the shitter, many of the Uniate leadership will end in Rome, Edmonton, Toronto, Chicago, Washington, Bound Brook, and New York… their hate will poison the diaspora. God do spare us and preserve us…

Sadly, there are still elements in the diaspora that adulate Vlasov, Krasnov, Kaminsky, and other collaborationist pigs, especially, in the ROCOR. I find it interesting that those who honour Nazi-loving collaborationist dogs self-identify as “conservatives”. It tells you much about neoliberal “conservatives” to know that they accept unrepentant former Nazis (and collaborationists) as allies and friends. It tells you much about their movement, and about its ideology, Weltanschauung, goals, and tactics. Shitbirds of a feather DO flock together. Both do believe in a “Master Race”… and we’re not part of it.
I do wish that the bishops would end the public approval given to the collaborationists (and their descendants) in official Church media and circles. That’d do much to expiate our sin of having coddled them for so many years…
