The Post’s Amie Ferris-Rotman explains why Russia’s backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the civil war is deeply rooted in Russia’s ties to the church. Read more: https://wapo.st/2vfalhs. Subscribe to The Washington Post on YouTube: https://wapo.st/2QOdcqK

  1. As they lay down to sleep forever
    The children’s prayers cease
    Life shortened by a cruel dictator
    A dove mourns an unlikely peace

    A ruler’s greed cold and heartless
    A conscience empty as space
    Saddened parents cries bombard us
    As the world offers a warm embrace

  2. A must Amos in the bible is like Putin's war in Ukraine. Of you can read Kings and of course Revelations. Putin is not the good Russian people sorry to tell you, he is on the side of Lucifer. Putin is preparing the way for the antichrist, the false prophet, the false truth.

  3. I never trust the western news, documentaries because most of it are big LIE.
    I watched almost 1 hour interview of Assad. Assad asked Russia to help them solve the problem cause by U.S. & NATO invasion & terror. NATO came in to Syria illegally just like what they did to Iraq,Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya etc.

  4. This is comical both of these men are WAR CRIMINALS and they will be tried!
    They gassed the people! Kleptocracy! This is a cover up these men are registered War Criminalss lol

  5. As for all of you who think war on any side is a legitimate expression of religion, you are morally bankrupt and also mentally ill. No country, Russia, USA, Syria, Iran, no country, should be tolerated who has such callous disregard for humanity

  6. AGAIN THE PATRIARCH IS A WAR CRIMINAL AND BY HIS ACTIONS ANTITHETICAL TO THE VERY PURPOSE AND DOCTRINES OF THE RELIGION HE HEADS, THEREBY FORFEITS ALL CLAIMS TO ANY RELIGIOUS OR MORAL AUTHORITY!

  7. Russia's history is replete with faith in the Holy Bible. Russia long before the 1611 AV King James already through the ministry of John Chrysostom, and John of Antioch translated the Latin Syrian Text known as the Textus Receptus from the Greek NT of the scripture, Russia took that text of the King and made it theirs. Thus God has looked favourably on Russia. My take is that in the very near future, the installed masonic STATE of Israel, (Not talking about the ordinary Jews), will likely fulfill Isaiah 17, and destroy Damascus and international reprisal will take place.

  8. Now the TALoN operation had been reveal with hundreds thousand of boms drop on civilian, what US has to say ? as usual media potrayed that US is an angel, unfortunately altenative media are the choice of today

  9. The Russian Orthodox Church is the Church of SATAN not the GOD of ABRAHAM, ISAAC, and JACOB! GOD would never approve of Putin's Genocide on the Ukrainians! Certainly not innocent Children! The Catholic Church was Correct separating themselves from that SATANIC GROUP, the Church of Orthodox SATAN.

  10. The West was seriously going to give Syria over to terrorists who cut people's heads off and want to turn Syria back to the worst aspects of the Middle Ages. This is why I gave my support over to Russia. I'm glad people didn't buy into the chemical weapon's false flag to start bombing Syria.

  11. Indeed Allah will give more power to those who trust in christ(orthodox) on those who shake hands(west Christianity) with enemies of jesus(Zionists)

  12. Mainstream Religion has long been connected to the atrocities in this world… several hundred years ago the thirty years war between Catholics Protestants ( and somwhat Calvinists ), slaughtered between 10 and 30 million people at a time when Europe
    was not that populated. ( the figure is very broad because europe didn't have modern computers and internet back then )… the Russian Orthodox church has been involved in many wars and atrocities, and it's no different than the religious Crusades and inquisitions of hundreds of
    years ago…. mainstream religion is nothing like true Christianity, and it stands in the way of World Peace… get away from mainstream religion and learn about God's Kingdom, the only hope for mankind…. we need LOVE and God's kingdom will bring that love 🙏🔆

  13. I’ve never heard St Petersburg being called the “Palmyra of the North” ! What isn’t said is the fact that Russia has access to the Mediterranean via Syria via Aleppo. That’s a significant Russian military base& port for them.
