KMG Sez Serbs Victims of Great Geopolitical Game

______________________________

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias stated that Kosovo Serbs are hostages of a great geopolitical game, saying, “Due to the indifferent attitude of many states, they’re forced to live in closed enclaves, feeling constant anxiety due to a hostile environment. Our co-religionists have great courage; they won’t leave their suffering country and holy places, although they live just like in a concentration camp. They don’t even have basic human rights. We see unacceptable injustice, double standards, and political lies here; they declare commitment to ideals of humanism and protection of human rights, yet, they turn a blind eye in the face of a hell created by extremists with the connivance of their foreign sponsors”.

Patriarch Kirill asserted, “At the time of the NATO intervention against Yugoslavia (in 1999), the western world was exposed to an intensive media campaign and was much deceived by it. The western media published intentionally twisted information about the Milošević régime’s atrocities against Kosovo Albanians by exaggerating the number of victims of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Serbian police in the province. The precious monuments that the Serbian people built in Kosovo and Metohija will live as long as prayers are heard in the churches”. He reiterated that Russia was helping to restore and protect the Serbian Orthodox cultural heritage through UNESCO and that it was sending humanitarian aid to the Kosovo Serbs. In conclusion, His Holiness said, “I’ve been to Kosovo and Metohija many times and met with the local population; I witnessed the difficult conditions they live in. The things I’ve seen have strongly affected me. The Russian Orthodox Church showed and will show solidarity with the Kosovo Serbs”.

Editor’s Note:

Lately, there’s been much loose talk in Western media circles about how His Holiness is embracing “Western values”. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Russia continues to stand by Serbia, and it continues to condemns the Western dismemberment of Socialist Federal Yugoslavia in the ‘90s (then, Russia was weakened, and couldn’t stand by its ally). The Russian state, Church, and people stand united… Russia must stand firm against American attempts to export its godless Neoliberalism, smarmy hypocritical double standards, and false Sectarian “Me n’ Jayzuss” “religion” throughout the world. It’s why the Left is rebounding in the Rodina… American-style Robber Baron “capitalism” impoverished all too many Russians in the Nasty Nineties, and people are pushing back. The world is NOT a planned American suburban “community” complete with “green spaces” and artificial “lakes”, nor is it ever going to be such… thank God for that!
