The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Zakharova commented on Biden and Zelensky's visit to the Orthodox Cathedral in Kyiv

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on the visit of US President Joe Biden to Kyiv, asking a question regarding Orthodoxy.

In its Telegram channel Zakharova asked about a photo published by the Ukrainian authorities of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Biden standing in front of the Orthodox St. Michael's Cathedral in Kyiv after visiting the temple. The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry asked which of the political figures depicted in the photo is Orthodox...



Biden's visit to Kyiv became known only after he appeared on the streets of the Ukrainian capital along with Zelensky. The White House administration previously denied the very possibility of such a visit, reporting only on the plans of the US President to visit Poland to hold a meeting there with the heads of countries that are part of NATO's Eastern European flank.

In Kiev, Biden was waiting for the already standard "entertainment" program, which included a mandatory air raid throughout Ukraine, a trip to Bucha, which is one of the main symbols of Ukrainian propaganda, and the laying of flowers at the memorial in honor of the so-called "heavenly hundred".

Due to the arrival of Biden, all life in Kyiv was practically paralyzed. Numerous military and police detachments filled the streets and traffic was blocked, resulting in many kilometers of traffic jams.

Biden, at a meeting with Zelensky, praised the fact that Kyiv was not surrendered to Russian troops in February last year.

      Of course, you will excuse me, but that only Orthodox people can enter an Orthodox church? Maybe you also need to measure the size of the skull at the entrance? An absolutely incompetent statement, when there is nothing to say, you need to at least say something, preferably taking the problem aside.

        It is necessary and possible for everyone to enter the temple, but with bright thoughts, and not with those that "these" people have (give weapons and the destruction of Russia).

        So, no one is forbidden to enter, besides, Jews and Catholics are different. These two - did not "try to defame", but defiled specifically with their presence. And they know it, for the sake of this they came, and not in order to repent of sins and pray to God.

      Yes, the fact of the matter is that the church will accept everyone. The most fierce beast can enter the temple. Regardless of religion. And these two killers - Biden and Zelensky - also have the right to enter there.
      You just need to turn to God and repent ... but this option is not provided in the brains of these scoundrels.

        It is one thing to enter there with humility and repentance, and not as the master of everything. I want to remind you that the Mikhailovsky Cathedral is one of the very first in Rus', these are the origins of Orthodoxy. Personally, I think it was a deliberate act of public humiliation.

      It would have been better to remain silent. Gromyko is probably turning over in his grave from such diplomats.

        Why should Biden pray for eternity if he is already half in it: his name is inscribed in history until the end of time, he himself mostly greets ghosts and asks them only one question: about the presence of a temperature regulator in the pan where he will spend eternity.

The Russian Federation does not fight for its own minds and thinks it will work like that! Well, let's see what Putin will say tomorrow, if not something,,,,,,,,,,,,,!
