Russia’s Orthodox Grand Strategy – The Mysterious Ties to the Military, Particularly Russia’s Nuclear Forces- “Protecting against (Western) satanic forces” Signs of the Great Prophecy Unfolding

Russia’s Orthodox Grand Strategy

For a number of years Mystic Post has called Our Lady’s message given to  the Medjugorje visionaries about Russia – “The Great Prophecy” . The Queen of Peace said, “Russia will come to glorify God the most; the West has made modern progress but without God and act like their own creators.”

The significance to this prophecy about Russia is that it also ties Medugorje to Fatima.  The visionaries have often said, “Medjugorje is the continuation and fulfillment of Fatima.” And  there can be no doubt that Russia was the major geopolitical theme of Fatima. The Bishop of Fatima once said “The dominant theme of Fatima is Russia, Russia and Fatima our one.”

This article sheds light on how deeply tied the Russia Orthodox Church is to the Russian government and its military and what it means politically for USA and the world.

Putin will leave sooner or—as it seems—later. But a revanchist Russia, shaped by a revitalized Russian Orthodox Church, will outlast him.
