From Vladyka Agafangel
I would like to write a few words about the program "Russian World." As I understand it, the program is a government program to create a real pro-Russia [Russian Federation] diaspora. The Soviet Union did not represent or attract the diaspora. Now the Russian government has undertaken to create this. A huge amount of money has been funded to this program (just the one ongoing construction in Paris is worth a lot). That is why Russian officials are trying to take a stranglehold on every property outside of Russia, (e.g., the church in Nice), located outside of Russia. The MP takes an active part in this program, because of the Russian diaspora (which had never been pro-Soviet) has some valuable property. Under this program, exhibitions, concerts (unprofitable, but paid from the pockets of Russian taxpayers) are held around the world, political, and youth movements, schools, etc. are created. The agents of influence and spies are activated. Agitation is carried out "to encourage people to go to the MP." Under this program, the union of a part of ROCOR with MP was organized. That is, there was not simple pressure, but it was a government program, that was why President Putin personally took part in that "operation".
I want to draw attention to the fact that the program "Russian World" is a political program aimed at creating a pro-Russian lobby in other countries. One of the first laborers in this field is the Patriarch Cyril. Each person must decide for himself whether it is good or bad. Anyway it is helpful to know for all of us what the next "Soviet" experiment conducted on human beings is, so we can understand where all of us are being lead to.
