"Christian values in Europe remain, of course, in the life of people. I have experience of contacting West Europeans who keep all this in their hearts. But the general political tendency, the general direction of elites is undoubtedly anti-Christian and anti-religious".
"We [in Russia] have gone through an era of atheism and we want to shout for the whole world to hear: "People, stop, we know what kind of life it is".
~ Patriarch Kirill I
