Putin: Communist or Christian?-Henry Makow

The author urges Westerners not to be taken in.

The Perestroika Deception: Behind the Mask (Pt. 1) (Footnotes found here)

By ‘Child of the Immaculata’ Apocalypse 12:17.

(Slightly abridged by henrymakow.com)

A truly peaceful nation does not speak and act in warrior terms. Although the East expends much effort pretending virtue, consistent with ‘Perestroika Deception’ revealed by Soviet defector Mr Anatoliy Golitysn (1), the mask occasionally slips.

Accordingly, Putin, clearly presaging Western conquest and war, told Western journalists in 2008 that their wives should learn ‘how to cook cabbage soup’:

“He told Western observers who refused to monitor the forthcoming election, widely seen as a sham, that they should ‘rather teach their own wives how to cook cabbage soup.’ (2)

In 2016, he revealed his true communist credentials, in declaring his like of communist and socialist doctrine:

‘You know that I, like millions of Soviet citizens, over 20 million, was a member of the Communist Party of the USSR and not only was I a member of the party but I worked for almost 20 years for an organization called the Committee for State Security,’ Putin said, referring to the KGB ‘I was not, as you know, a party member by necessity’ he said. “I liked communist and socialist ideas very much and I like them still.”(3)

Also in 2016, Putin made public evangelization illegal.(4) Mr. Hannu Haukka, President of Great Commission Media Ministries, said, “This new situation resembles the Soviet Union in 1929. At that time, confession of faith was permitted only in church.”

And in 2018, in further affirmation that his apparent ‘Christianity’ is totally fake (5), he compared the mausoleum of Lenin with a Christian relic: “Putin went further by comparing the Communists’ attitude to the Bolshevik leader Lenin to the veneration of saints in Christianity. ‘Look, Lenin was put in a mausoleum.How is this different from the relics of saints for Orthodox Christians and just for Christians?”(6)
