Kirill remembered that Russia It has powerful weapons and is populated by “very strong people, who always had great motivation for victory.”

“These are worrying times, but we believe that the Lord will not abandon the Russian land,” he pointed.
Kirill expressed the hope that “Russia will have the strength to defend its lands and its people in case of need.”. And may God not allow the situation to escalate to that point, may he reassure and pacify everyone and help them work together for a better world”.
Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev warned on Thursday that Russia could use nuclear weapons in the event of a defeat in Ukraine.by assuring that “the nuclear powers do not lose major conflicts on which their fate depends.”
