The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics


December 30th, 1922.  The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (Soviet Union) is established in Moscow. (shoots

The Soviet Union (USSR) was essentially a Bolshevist (“Red”) reincarnation of the Russian Empire. A critically important reincarnation, actually because, unlike the original empire it had a decent shot at conquering the whole world.

For a very simple reason – the “Third Rome” concept that (implicitly more than explicitly) was the foundation of the Russian empire, was a religious (Orthodox Christian, to be more precise) idea.

And thus ill-suited for world domination and conquest. The Bolshevist idea was secular and universal in nature and thus capable of providing the ideological basis – and drive – for the abovementioned objective.

Consequently, the Soviet Union can be viewed as the logical end result of the evolution of the Russian Empire. Empire created with one objective in mind – invading, conquering and annexing the whole world into one global totalitarian Russian state.

There was another difference, however, between the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. A crucial difference. The Soviet Union was officially called the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and thus contained no reference to Russia – its by far the largest component.

Officially this name was chosen to demonstrate the equality of all republics that constituted this (officially federal) state. But it was a lie, like just about all statements made by the Bolsheviks. In reality, the USSR was a highly centralized, authoritarian and totalitarian state – even more so than the original Russian Empire.

In reality, this name demonstrated that the objective of the USSR was the unlimited territorial expansion – until “the last republic” is accepted into this monstrosity. Obviously, it was “natural” to join the “officially egalitarian” union of Republics, while letting your state be annexed into a Greater Russia definitely was not.

The second item that proved beyond the reasonable doubt that the ultimate objective of the Bolshevik was the conquest of the whole world, was the USSR coat of arms.

The dominant position in this emblem was occupied by the Communist symbol (hammer and sickle) superimposed over the globe. It could be interpreted in only one reasonable way – that the Bolsheviks wanted to Bolshevize the whole world (much like the Russian emperors wanted to convert the whole world into the Russian Orthodox Christianity and Muslims wand to transform our world into a global Islamic Caliphate).

For Adolf Hitler, the Nazis and for everyone with brains “all of the above” was the undeniable proof that Bolshevism was a genuinely existential threat to Europe, the whole Western Civilization and for the whole humanity.

Unfortunately, not every political decision-maker in the West had brains (apparently). There was a sufficient number of “useful idiots” (incredibly useful, actually) who provided the Soviet Union and its leader – the “Red Tamerlane” Joseph Stalin – with all tools and technologies that the latter needed to create a military-industrial monster. A monster with the capacity to, indeed, conquer the whole world.

Only a genuine miracle (a perfect timing of a pre-emptive strike delivered by Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS) saved the Western Civilization from being destroyed by the Bolshevist hordes and from being transformed into a very literal Hell on Earth.

And it took almost half a century for the West to finally kill the Soviet monster – the Soviet Union ceased to exist only on December 26th, 1991.


His Timeline – the “Micro-Biography” of Adolf Hitler (5)


November 7th, 1917. A practically bloodless coup results in October Revolution in Russia. Like the February Revolution the same year, this one got its name due to the Julian calendar used officially in Russia at that time. According to that calendar, the revolution took place on October 25th, 1917 – November 7th according to Gregorian calendar used at the time (and nowadays) worldwide.

This coup (contrary to a popular misconception, led by Leon Trotsky – Vladimir Lenin was essentially a bystander) in a matter of days transformed the Russian Republic into a totalitarian Bolshevist Soviet Russia.

Which subsequently became the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – and an existential threat to Germany, Europe, the Christian Church, Western (i.e., Christian) Civilization, and to the whole mankind.

November 1917. The very next day after seizing power in Russia, the Bolsheviks (the Russian Marxists) begin to implement the “10 points of The Communist Manifesto”. Which in practice means unleashing the “Red Destruction” and “Red Terror” on a colossal scale, destroying the human civilization as we know it and replacing it with something genuinely infernal.

All private property was outlawed and “nationalized” (i.e. confiscated at gunpoint). All political parties, all non-Bolshevist media and organizations were banned. Market economy was outlawed and replaced with “centralized planning” and “military communism”. Which immediately resulted in an all but a total collapse of the Russian economy, endemic shortages of the most basic goods and services and a widespread hunger.

Political opponents of the Bolshevist regime (real, potential and perceived) were arrested sent to prisons and concentration camps (yes, concentration camps were brought to Europe by Russian Communists) and often summarily executed without any semblance of due process.

Churches are looted (in fact, all places that might store something of financial value) and closed down; priests, monks, nuns and devout lay Christians are arrested, sent to prisons (or concentration camps) or executed – often without trial and sometimes on the spot (as “enemies of the people”).

Soviet Russia defaults on all of its external financial obligations – and renounces all its obligations according to international treaties, declaring that it is no longer bound by any of them.

However, the Bolsheviks are unable to establish an “information curtain” (“information blockade”); consequently, news about these “Red horrors” immediately reach all European nations.

Including Germany, of course (which after the peace treaty with Russia is signed in March of 1918 becomes home to tens of thousands of refugees from the Red Terror).

Adolf Hitler (and other Nazis) at some point become aware of what was going on in Soviet Russia. It horrifies them – and leads to but one conclusion: Marxism (and its Bolshevist incarnation) is, indeed an existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western Civilization.

And the war with the Bolshevist Soviet Union (which appears highly likely given the global ambitions of Bolsheviks) will be, indeed, an existential war – the war for the very existence of Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization as they know it.

It also becomes known – worldwide – that the majority of the Bolshevist leaders of Russia (Trotsky, Sverdlov, Kamenev, Zinoviev, Larin, Nogin, Uritsky, etc.) are Jewish. As were many (if not most) members of the infernal Cheka – Soviet political police.

These indisputable facts (combined with already virulent and violent Judeophobia) ultimately led Adolf Hitler and the Nazis to an entirely wrong conclusion – that Bolshevism was nothing but an important part of a “global Jewish conspiracy” and that a very real existential war with Bolshevism will be an existential racial war with the “Jewish race”.

Two decades later these conclusions will become the trigger of – and the dominant driving force – one of the most horrific mass murder in human history. The Holocaust.

November 1917. The Civil War begins in Russia. Not surprisingly, the “Red Destruction” and “Red Terror” were met with determined, violent and vicious resistance. Which in no time triggered the wholesale and all-out Civil War.

This war lasted for five years – it more or less ended only in 1922. It devastated (actually, all but destroyed) the whole country. Ten million died (killed in action, murdered during the “Red” and “White” terror); two million (mostly the most valuable citizens) left the country. Seven million children became orphans and lived on the streets.

It is estimated that the total output of mines and factories in 1921 had fallen to 20% of the pre-World War level, and many crucial items experienced an even more drastic decline. For example, cotton production fell to 5%, and iron to 2%, of pre-war levels.

By 1921 cultivated land had shrunk to 62% of the pre-war area, and the harvest yield was only about 37% of normal. The number of horses declined from 35 million in 1916 to 24 million in 1920 and cattle from 58 to 37 million. The exchange rate with the US dollar declined from two rubles in 1914 to 1,200 in 1920.

News about this disaster (rather sooner than later) reached Germany – including Adolf Hitler and other Nazis, of course. From this horrible reports they made the only possible conclusions: (1) if the Bolsheviks ever come to power in Germany, they will immediately start the all-out civil war; and (2) this war will in no time devastate – if not completely destroy – the country.

Consequently, it is a solemn duty of every patriot of Germany to prevent Bolsheviks from ever coming to power. Using all means available – as even the most violent and even murderous ones are still far, far better than the “Red alternative”.

March 3rd, 1918. The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk is signed in what now is Brest in the independent Belarus (then a city in the Russian Empire). It was a treaty between the new Bolshevik government of now officially Soviet Russia and the Central Powers (German Empire, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire).

This treaty ended Russia’s participation in World War I, formally acknowledging a disastrous defeat of the latter – and thus a decisive victory of the Central Powers on the Eastern Front. Which, alas, did not help them much on the Western one.

By signing this treaty, the new Russian government (obviously), betrayed its allies in the Great War. However, it really had no choice – its armed forces all but disintegrated (contrary to another popular misconception, this collapse started months before the Bolsheviks came to power and was caused mostly NOT by the Bolsheviks).

In the treaty, Russia ceded hegemony over the Baltic States (Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia) to Germany; they were meant to become German vassal states under German princelings. Russia also ceded its province of Kars Oblast in the South Caucasus to the Ottoman Empire and recognized the independence of Ukraine. More than that, Russia renounced all territorial claims in Finland (which it had already acknowledged), Baltic States, Belarus, and Ukraine.

The treaty meant that Russia now was essentially fighting on the side of Central Powers, by freeing up a million German soldiers for the Western Front and by “relinquishing much of Russia’s food supply, industrial base, fuel supplies, and communications with Western Europe.

According to historian Spencer Tucker, the Allied Powers felt that “the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk was the ultimate betrayal of the Allied cause and sowed the seeds for the Cold War. The German domination in Eastern Europe threatened to become reality, and the Allies now began to think seriously about military intervention in Russia.

His Timeline – the “Micro-Biography” of Adolf Hitler (3)

Hitler_1914_1918June 28th, 1914. Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and Franz Ferdinand’s wife Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, are assassinated in Sarajevo.

The assassination is carried out by Mlada Bosna – a Bosnian terrorist organization, created, directed, armed and financed by the Black Hand (a terrorist Serbian organization).

The Black Hand was created and led by Colonel Dragutin Dmitrijevic (“Apis”) who already committed an assassination of a royal couple – Serbian king and queen in 1903. The Sarajevo assassination was also organized, financed and coordinated by the Black Hand. The ultimate objective of the latter was to break off Austria-Hungary’s South Slav provinces so they could be subsequently annexed into a Greater Serbia (Yugoslavia).

However, the Black Hand was itself but a pawn in a far bigger game planned and initiated by the Russian military intelligence and a Russian “party of war” led by the foreign minister Dmitry Sazonov.

The primary objective of this party was to destroy Austro-Hungarian Empire and to make Russia a dominant force in Eastern Europe. Consequently, the actual leaders of the plot that led to the Sarajevo assassination were Dragutin Dmitrijevic and Nicholas Hartwig – the Russian ambassador in Belgrade (two real “shadow” rulers of Serbia).

To break up the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Russia and Serbia had to start a war with the former. Destruction of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was unacceptable to Germany – without the Austrian ally it was inevitably “the next on the menu”. Consequently, the war with Austria automatically meant war with Germany as well.

Russian and Serbian plans were tacitly (and implicitly) supported by France that needed the war with Germany to get back Alsace and Lorraine (annexed by victorious German Empire in 1871).

France also wanted to radically weaken Germany – and thus to become a dominant force in Western Europe. Consequently, the ultimate (albeit implicit and very much unofficial) objective of Russian-French military alliance was to divide Europe between these two great powers – with France dominating the West and Russia dominating the East. Which automatically made war between France and Germany inevitable – and very much desired by the former.

Therefore, Russia planned and executed (using Serbian and Bosnian terrorists as its pawns) the Sarajevo assassination plot with but one objective in mind – ignite an all-European war. Which, indeed, was ignited by the “Sarajevo bullets”.

Hence, this assassination made the Great War inevitable and the three culprits responsible for this horrendous disaster are Russia, Serbia and France (roughly in that order, although it is quite possible that the “Serbian tail” was wagging the “Russian dog”).

August 1914. Germany declares war on Russia and France… or so it seems at the first glance.

After it became obvious that the Sarajevo assassination was carried out by Serbian nationals, on July 23rd, Austria-Hungary issued an ultimatum to Serbia.

The latter accepted all Austrian demands… with the exception of just one that demanded investigation of the plot by the Austrian police. For an obvious reason – any impartial investigation would have uncovered the undeniable fact that the assassination was ordered by the Serbian government.

Which automatically meant war with Austria (imagine what the USA would have done had it discovered that the Mexican government had ordered the assassination of the Vice-President of the USA and his wife). Which began on July 28th, 1914 with the Austrian army and Navy starting to shell Belgrade.

On the same day, Russia started partial mobilization (which made no sense whatsoever). Recognizing its mistake, two days later – on July 30th, the Russian Emperor Nicholas II announced the full mobilization of the Russian armed forces.

Which, according to the international law, was a de-facto declaration of war on Austro-Hungarian Empire and Germany. Consequently, in reality Russia declared war on Germany and Austro-Hungary, not the other way around.

The next day (on July 31st, 1914) Austria-Hungary and Germany announce full mobilization of their armed forces as well, thus de-facto acknowledging the fact that they were at war with the Russian Empire.

However, the German government made a last-ditch (and a totally hopeless) attempt to avoid the war by demanding that Russia cancels its full mobilization within twelve hours.

It was all in vain – Russian leaders wanted the war so German demand was simply ignored. To grab the initiative in the inevitable conflict (always a smart thing to do) Germany declared war on Russia on August 1st with Austria-Hungary following suit five days later – on August 6th.

France (predictably) ordered full mobilization in support of Russia on the next day after Germany declared war on Russia – on August 2nd. Which means that de-facto France declared war on Germany, not the other way around (the general mobilization is irreversible and for all and every practical purposes means war).

Recognizing that it was de-facto at war with France, Germany demanded free passage through Belgium, an essential element in achieving a quick victory over the latter. When this demand was (predictably) refused, on the next day the German Army invaded Belgium anyway. On the same Germany declared war on France.

Fearing (correctly) that without its support (especially the one from the mighty Royal Navy) France will lose the war and Germany will become the dominant power in continental Europe (something the His Majesty’s government was determined to prevent at all costs), on August 4th Britain declared war on Germany (formally in compliance with its obligations under the 1839 Treaty of London with Belgium). On August 12th, Britain and France declared war on Austria-Hungary (just to make the whole thing official).

Given the fact that both Britain and France were gigantic colonial empires (and that Great Britain was the head of the de-facto British Commonwealth which included Canada and Australia), what was essentially the war between two neighboring nations – Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Kingdom of Serbia (the latter being very much a terrorist state) – in a matter of a few days was transformed into the genuine World War.

De-facto ignited and started not by Germany and Austro-Hungary (who were victims, not culprits, prey, not predators), but by Serbia, Russia and France – the real predators and culprits and the ones responsible for the outbreak of the Great War.

August 1914. Adolf Hitler enlists in the Bavarian (i.e. German) Army. Obviously, Hitler was not aware of all intricate details of the plot that led to the Sarajevo assassination and to the outbreak of the Great War.

However, he did understand (or at least feel) that for the German Empire (the “Second Reich”) it was a genuinely existential war – that losing the Great War would have meant the end of Germany as he knew it. As it turned out four years later, he was one hundred percent correct in his assessment and predictions.

Adolf Hitler did not care a rat’s ass (pardon my French) about the Austrian-Hungarian Empire (he knew it was doomed anyway – war or no war). However, he cared very much about his beloved Germany of which he was a genuine, committed and passionate patriot.

Adolf Hitler was not perfect (to put it mildly) – but, unlike most politicians, he always walked what he talked and practiced what he preached. He knew that in the times of war (especially the existential war) his place was in the trenches.

So he overcame two practically impossible obstacles (he was not a German citizen and he was officially declared unfit for military service) and enlisted in the 1st Company of the Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment 16 (the famous “List Regiment”).

The “official” version of his success is that Hitler almost certainly was enlisted through an error on the part of the German military. Later (during Hitler’s trial after the failed Beer hall Putsch), the military authorities could not explain why he was not deported back to Austria in 1914 after he failed his physical exam for the Austrian Army; they concluded that the matter of Hitler’s citizenship was simply not raised, thus he was allowed to enter the Bavarian Army.

I thinks that this explanation is bunk (pardon my French again). In reality, Adolf Hitler either convinced the appropriate authorities that he was a patriot of Germany, not Austria – and thus wanted to serve the former, not the latter (possibly). Or (much more likely) simply bribed them. Or both.

The Russian Slavery

Slavery in Russia

In Russia, it was called “крепостное право” or “крепостничество”. It is universally translated into English (out of proverbial political correctness, no doubt) as “serfdom”. In reality, it was slavery – cut and dry, plain and simple, loud and clear.

Indeed, the slave owners (the nobles) ultimately obtained (by imperial law) an absolute power over life and death of their slaves (peasants). They could buy and sell them; make them perform any job the noble wants – no matter how dangerous, shameful or meaningless; rape, punish, torture and even murder them in ways that would make Ivan the Terrible look like a saint – all with complete impunity.

Essentially, the Russian rulers created a paradise for serial killers and mass murderers (of which there were many among the Russian nobles). Which is not surprising at all as the Russian “Christian” Empire was created by three sadistic serial killers and mass murderers – Vladimir the Great, Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great.

Only one such criminal – one Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova (incidentally, a woman which is rather uncommon thing among sadistic serial killers) – was ever brought to justice.

And only because (despite all efforts of Russian imperial bureaucracy) “the cat got out of the bag”  which could have easily led to a nationwide uprising of peasants and deliver a devastating blow to the image of an “enlightened ruler” carefully cultivated by then-empress of Russia Catherine the Great.

Saltykova was arrested, tried, found guilty of 38 murders (the actual body count could have been as high as 147) and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole (believe it or not, but in 1768, when her trial took place, Russia did not have a death penalty for common crimes – only for political ones).

In a very, very, uncomfortable prison – the cellar of Ivanovsky Convent in Moscow. Saltykova proved to be a highly resilient woman – she survived for 33 (!) years in that horrible (literally) jail and died only in 1801 at a ripe old age of 71.

After the trial, Catherine the Great personally established a highly efficient “information blackout” system to make sure that information about such “hobbies” of Russian nobles (of which there dozens and dozens) never ever became public. A highly successful system – the magnitude of these crimes was discovered only after the Bolshevist revolution that opened the secret imperial archives.

This fundamentally criminal system allowed dozens (if not hundreds or even thousands of serial killers, rapists and tortures) to commit these horrific felonies for decades (for centuries actually as such monsters existed in every generation).

Which obviously was very pleasing to the Devil and his demons whose favorite spiritual food is human pain and suffering – another solid proof that (contrary to government and Church propaganda) Russia was, indeed, the country “of the Devil, by the Devil and for the Devil”.


Russia was obviously not the only “civilized” country that practiced slavery in modern times: the Ottoman Empire, the British Empire (in its colonies) and, of course the USA were guilty of that as well.

However, the Russian version of slavery was very different from (and far darker than) the ones practiced in other nations (as well as in the Mongol Empire). Unlike the latter, where the slaves came from other nations and (initially) religions, in Russia the Russians were owned and mistreated (exploited, raped, tortured and even murdered – often with extreme brutality and even sadism) by other Russians.

Incidentally (unlike all other Christian denominations), the Russian Christian Church wholeheartedly supported enslavement of Russian Christians by their fellow other Christians (other denominations only approved of enslavement of individuals of other nations, races, cultures and religions).

The Russian slavery system had but one fundamental objective – to facilitate control over the enormous imperial territories (impossible to keep with an economically and legally free population).

And why would the Russia Tsars need these enormous territories? To satisfy the deeply-programmed messianic desire to become (and remain) the “Third Rome” – ultimately conquer the whole world, convert it to Russian Orthodox faith and rule it until the Second Coming of Christ. Which they hoped would never happen as the result of the Judgement Day was for them plain and obvious – a one-way trip to Hell for Eternity.

Russian nobles supported slavery for a very simple reason – being the slaves of the Tsar (and for all practical purposes of Tsar’s bureaucrats – often low-level ones) they wanted to compensate for this highly uncomfortable state (to put it mildly) by enslaving somebody else – in this case their peasants. And thus becoming omnipotent Gods to their slaves just as the Tsar was the omnipotent God to them – and to all Russians.

Consequently, just about every estate in Russia was a miniature kingdom with its owner – its absolute ruler who had absolute power over his or her (some estates were owned and managed by women) subjects (i.e. slaves) and no accountability to them whatsoever. Just like the Tsar in the whole Russia.

As was the whole Russian absolute monarchy – a typical Asian despotism which made Russia Asian, not European state (and thus paved the way for “Red Tamerlane” Joseph Stalin).

This top to bottom slavery lasted for centuries and led to genuinely disastrous consequences for Russia and Russians. The master/slave relationships got so ingrained in their mentality and culture that they simply could not (and still can not) build a European-style free democratic state – only replace one kind of slavery with another.

Russians ceased to be the slaves of the Tsar (Russian Emperor, actually) – and immediately became the slaves of the Bolshevist leader. They ceased to be the slaves of their landlord – and immediately became slaves of their boss. They ceased to be the slaves of tsarist bureaucrats – and immediately became the slaves of Communist bureaucrats. They ceased to be the slaves of Russian Imperial State – and immediately became the slaves of the Soviet State.

And that’s exactly what happened in Russian history – the totalitarian (let’s call a spade a spade) absolute Russian Imperial Monarchy destroyed in March of 1917 was almost immediately replaced with even more totalitarian “Red Monarchy” (the “Soviet State”). The liberal democratic “February Republic” lasted for mere eight months.

In 1991, the Russians destroyed the “Soviet State” ending the disastrous Bolshevist experiment that cost the nation tens of millions of lives and an enormous destruction of its infrastructure.

However, the “red slavery” was quickly replaced by even worse kind of slavery – the Russians became slaves in a very genuine sense to the very mobsters who transformed the inherently weak “Russian democracy” into a genuine “Mafia state” led by a quasi-Tsar (“capo di tutti cappi”, if you will) Vladimir Putin and his KGB cronies. This time, democracy lasted for… about ten years, give or take but still died. Alas, a very much natural (for Russia) death.

However (contrary to a popular misconception), Putin’s “Mafia State” is not a serious threat to the Western Civilization (let alone an existential one). But the Bolshevist Soviet Union was.

Because Marxism (contrary to what Marx himself believed) was a perfect match to Russian “Orthodox” Imperialist Messianism. It was a genuine “marriage made in Hell”. Actually, it was much more than a marriage. It was a devastating, murderous synergy and an immensely powerful weapon of mass destruction.

Weapon of world destruction, to be completely honest.


Russian “Orthodox” Messianic Imperialism (1)


The most lucrative target for the Devil is, obviously, the Christian Church established by Jesus Christ (although most of the technical details are rightfully credited to Saint Apostle Paul).

There is nothing that the Prince of Darkness wants (even craves) more than taking control over the Church and making it his (and not God’s) weapon in his existential war with the latter. Hence, it is no surprise that the Church has been under a constant attack by the Forces of Darkness (Army of Satan) from Day One of its existence. And still very much is.

Fortunately, Satan failed in this all-important endeavor of his. However, he managed to significantly weaken the Church by splitting it twice. The first split (the so-called “East–West Schism”).

De-facto it happened in the 4th century – almost right after Christianity became the official state religion of the Roman Empire, but de-jure it was announced (and accepted… sort of) six centuries later – in 1054.

As I will prove beyond the reasonable doubt in a moment, it was not exactly a schism (which assumes the split of the Church into more or less equally valid and legitimate components).

In reality it was the Eastern heretics (who called themselves “Orthodox” thought they were nothing of the sort) divesting themselves from the genuinely orthodox (i.e. theologically correct and righteous Holy Roman Catholic Church).

They were heretics because for all practical purposes they stopped serving Jesus Christ (as they were supposed to) and started serving the very much earthly (and very much sinful) power of the Emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire.

To put it bluntly, sold Jesus Christ for Roman imperial pieces of silver (or gold – which does not really matter). Hence the so-called “Orthodox Church” is essentially the Church of Judas, not of Jesus Christ.

This (genuinely Judas-style) betrayal did radically weaken the Eastern Church (which ultimately was protected only by Divine Grace which went down by orders of magnitude). So radically that it was practically annihilated by Muslim invaders (mostly in the 7th and 8th centuries, although Constantinople – now Istanbul – fell only in 1453).

However, before it was wiped out by the Army of Satan, the Eastern “Orthodox” Churched managed to do Satan some serious service. First, by arranging for a conversion to Eastern Orthodoxy (“pravoslaviye”) of the whole Russia.

Although the actual conversion was done by the Russian rulers “by sword and fire” (i.e. by brutal and even deadly force), the Russian “Orthodox” Church (ROC) was established – and for some time even run by the Eastern Orthodox Church.

And second (which was no less important) by creating an ideology that would one day become the Russian Orthodox Messianic Imperialism. Which (after the Orthodox religion was replaced by Marxist quasi-religion) became an immensely powerful drive behind Stalin’s “Drang nach Westen”.

As I have stated earlier, Russia (as the Soviet Russia) became the full-fledged existential threat to the Christian Church, Western Civilization and the whole human civilization in March of 1919, after the establishment of Comintern.

However, the first step in this very much infernal direction was made almost a millennium earlier (as I have already stated, Satan is an immensely patient character).

in 988 AD when the Byzantine (“Eastern”) version of Christianity became the official religion of Russia (then called Kievan Rus’ after its then capital Kiev – now the capital of independent Ukraine).

Russian Christian Church officially called itself Русская Православная Церковь (Russkaya Pravolslavnaya Tzerkov) traditionally translated into English as Russian Orthodox Church (and pravoslaviye – Russian Christianity as “Russian Orthodoxy”).

Unfortunately, this translation is grossly incorrect and fundamentally misleading as (from the religious point of view) Russian version of Christianity is not “orthodox” at all.

In the Christian context, “orthodox” means that the Christian doctrine in question conforms exactly to the fundamentals of Christianity – the New Testament. Which loud and clear, cut and dry, plain and simple states three fundamental commandments that pravoslaviye (Russian Christianity) and thus the Russian Church blatantly violates.

First, Jesus Christ Himself (who is obviously the highest and absolute authority in all things Christian) made Peter the head of the Christian Church:

You are Peter [which means ‘rock’], and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell will not overcome it.” Matthew 16:18, NIV

It means (beyond the reasonable doubt) that this commandment means that the Christian Lord and savior Jesus Christ viewed the Christian Church as a centralized system governed by a single individual ultimately responsible for the enforcement of one system of true and correct Christian religious dogmas.

At that time, the Western Civilization (and thus just about all civilized world) was not just governed by the Roman Empire. It was Roman Empire. Consequently, it was obvious that the Christian Church must be governed – from then to the Second Coming – from Rome by a Roman Bishop (“the Pope”). The fact that Saint Apostle Peter became the first Pope (“Roman Pontiff”) of the Christian Church proves it beyond the reasonable doubt.

This commandment of Jesus Christ is, by definition, orthodox; consequently, the Russian Church that adopted and teaches a radically different view of the Christian Church is not orthodox, but outright heretical – cut and dry, loud and clear, plain and simple.

According to Russian pravoslaviye, a Christian Church must be a loose confederation of national churches with no central authority and all fundamental matters of doctrine decided by the global (“ecumenical”) Councils.

As conducting an ecumenical council is all but impossible (the last one took place in 787 AD – almost 1300 years ago), in practice it means that every national Church has its very own doctrine (often sharply different from others).

Unfortunately, this is not the only Scriptural commandment violated by the Russian version of Christianity (and thus by the Russian “Orthodox” Church).

The New Testament explicitly states that there must be no national distinctions between Christians:

There is neither Jew nor Greek for you are all one in Christ Jesus” Galatians 3:28-29 (ESV)

Which automatically means that any reference to any nation in the official name of a Christian Church (e.g Russian, Greek, Armenian, etc.) is heresy – plain and simple.

It gets worse. Christian Lord and Savior (i.e. the absolute authority on all things religious) stated loud and clear that there should be a clear separation of the Church and the State:

Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s” – Mark 12:17 (NIV)

Russian pravoslaviye preaches and teaches a radically different relationship between church and state: a so-called “symphonia”. In theory it means that the Christian Church and the Christian State are two inseparable parts of one whole (“two sides of the same coin” even) with the State taking care of earthly things and the Church – of the Heavenly (spiritual) things with neither institution presuming to dominate the other.

Unfortunately, in our highly imperfect and sinful world this principle opens the door for subordination of the Church to the State. For a very simple reason – the State has the guns and the Church does not.

Which, slowly but surely, first in Byzantium and then in Russia led to the violation of the Second Commandment in the Old Testament: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (in other words, you must not worship any gods other than a Christian God).

Explicit identification of the Russian Church with the Russian nation (“Russian people”) and its inevitable subordination to the Russian state very quickly led to a no less inevitable worship (by the Russian Church and its members) of the Russian people (at best) and/or the Russian state – or even its absolute ruler (at worst).

Unfortunately, these were not purely theological issues as their combination (“dark synergy”, actually) gave birth to a monster that ultimately made Russia (in its Soviet incarnation) a clear and present existential threat to the Western civilization.

The Russian “Orthodox” Imperialist Messianism.
