And this is the government that those who betrayed our old ROCOR, have trusted and which they still defend-
found on the BBC site:
THIS!..is the new/free/democratic Russia???? and it's KGB run MP 'church' is also free and 'totally independent from the government' (famous words of Hilarion-Kapral!)
The evidence is over whelming: the same corrupt soviet-era politicians and oligarchs, ( now wearing different & fresh new suits and with new titles), still are in power there, in both the government (The Duma and the rest of Putin's KGB run Kremlin tyranny), and in their Stalin-created state church.,... in which, Putin 'lights candles and crosses himself", Putin- 'the sincere Orthodox Christian" (!)...and DO NOT FORGET IT!
This is why, those KGB gangsters (to keep their power), must persecute any who see & who tell the truth, including all Orthodox Russian people, who have fled to anti-MP jurisdictions, and the many many others who...want to. This is not even including the enormous 'brain drain' of thinking/intelligent/well educated younger Russians, fleeing Putin's 'democratic' paradise, for better lives for them and their children, abroad.... to all over the world.
Also, how many of these younger educated Russians who are emigrating, have any respect for
"Russian Orthodoxy"...as all that they see of it, is the corrupt/evil MP???..a slavish tool of Putin and his ruling class regime.
But only those Russians of a certain & higher income level, CAN emigrate. Most of the average Russians, ( especially in the vast rural areas), are much too impoverished, to even hope to leave the country....while the super-rich 'nomen clatura' ruling class, lives in extreme opulence. In that rich ruling class, is included, monk, Pat. Kyrill-Gundaev and many of his cohort MP hierarchs.

Russia pursues election watchdog Golos under anti-NGO law
The group has been accused - including by these protesters - of being a US agent
Russian authorities have filed a legal case against an election watchdog, accusing it of failing to declare itself a "foreign agent".
The group, Golos, is the first non-governmental organisation targeted under a new law requiring such groups that receive financial aid from abroad to register as foreign agents.
The law was passed after mass protests against President Vladimir Putin.
Golos said it would fight to prove its innocence.
In recent weeks, more than 100 civil society and human rights groups across Russia have been subjected to inspections by prosecutors and tax officials in connection with the law.
Now Golos - one of the country's most prominent NGOs, whose name means both "voice" and "vote" - has been accused by the Justice Ministry of being an unregistered "foreign agent".
The case is to be presented to a court on Wednesday. The group could be fined up to 500,000 roubles ($16,000; £10,500) and its director up to 300,000 roubles.
Vote-rigging claims But on Tuesday, director Liliya Shibanova told state news agency RIA Novosti that the group had not received foreign funding since the law took effect.
"I don't know on what basis they're doing this," she said.
Golos collected and published evidence of alleged fraud in Russia's parliamentary poll just over a year ago, says the BBC's Steve Rosenberg in Moscow.
Those claims of vote-rigging in favour of the party in power sparked mass protests in Moscow and other major cities.
The Russian authorities were furious and accused NGOs like Golos of being fronts for foreign states seeking to destabilise Russia, our correspondent says.
Golos used to be partly funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), but that body ended its work in Russia last year on an order from the Russian authorities.
