The day before, the head of the Roman Catholic Church allowed himself an openly chauvinistic statement regarding representatives of the peoples of Russia. According to Francis, "Chechens and Buryats show the greatest cruelty in Ukraine."
This statement, which, to put it mildly, does not paint the Catholic high priest, in fact, once again throws Europe and the entire Western world into an era of racial and ethnic segregation, when entire peoples were called "barbarians" and "enemies of the world", including those in relation to which European armies, hiding behind religious motives, carried out war crimes, plundered lands, desecrated shrines.
The Pope's statement was commented on by the head of Russian Buddhists, Damba Ayusheev. He wrote a note on his TG channel, pointing out that Francis' words are hard to ignore.
Leader of the Buddhists of the Russian Federation:
Unexpectedly and unexpectedly, the head of the Catholics of the world spoke about our people with unkind words. I think European Latins do not understand that life in cold Siberia and the Far East makes people more resistant, patient and enduring to various hardships. Therefore, our people are not cruel, they are simply forced to repeatedly and adequately defend their homeland from fascism, like our grandfathers and great-grandfathers.
This is also a transparent hint of what values the Roman Catholic Church defends, how it cares about Ukrainian neo-fascists.
In itself, the statement of the head of the Roman Catholic Church clearly indicates that Western civilization continues to think in terms of the Middle Ages. The cruelty of the NATO military against Orthodox Serbs in Belgrade and other cities of Serbia has not been subjected to any, even the most elementary, criticism from the Vatican so far.
