Hey Brits it's 700th anniversary of Russia’s most-beloved saint - St. Sergius of Radonezh ! Photo of Putin's visit with Patriarch Kirill was out of place in airliner news package


According to British media:  Russian president in church as world leaders warn him you can't 'wash your hands' of MH17 disaster

The photo of the head of the Orthodox Church of Russia with Vladimir Putin was offensive to us Orthodox Christians.

The entire page was devoted to articles on the missile attack on the Malaysian airliner, and the photo featured a sinister-looking Mr. Putin with a smiling Patriarch Kirill and other bishops looking on. The occasion of the photo had nothing to do with the airline tragedy, but the editors of the Post-Gazette seemed to imply some kind of link with the Orthodox Church.

Mr. Putin’s visit to the monastery was purely religious — it was the 700th anniversary of Russia’s most-beloved saint — St. Sergius of Radonezh. There was no need to connect this spiritual event with this awful tragedy.

 Time to confess: Putin was pictured crossing himself yesterday at the ceremony as he was accused by leaders from around the world   

Behind it all? Vladimir Putin, pictured with Orthodox church Patriarch Kirill at a religious celebration yesterday, is under international pressure
