The course towards the militarisation of theological schools was taken after the meeting of the Supreme Church Council of the Russian Orthodox Church, held on April 16

“The fight against democracy is sacred for us, like the fight against the antichrist” – these words belong to Metropolitan Kirill (Pokrovsky), who heads the patriarchal department for interaction with the armed forces. A few days before Passover, the feast of God’s self-sacrificing love, he sent a circular letter to all theological schools in Russia ordering the inclusion of the subject “Preparation for the Ministry of Chaplains in the Combat Zone” in the curricula of the next school year. Due to the “importance and relevance of the program for 2024-2025, the special course should be held accelerated among all 3rd and 4th year bachelors”. The new program should instill “military values” in the youth.

The course towards the militarization of theological schools was taken after the meeting of the Supreme Church Council of the Russian Orthodox Church, held on April 16 in the “Christ the Savior” church. Of the four reports that were heard at the meeting, three were by Metropolitan Kirill, who followed the regime’s directives exactly: “We are opposed by the full power of NATO, using all possible military, technical, personnel, informational and tactical resources of the alliance.” But the scariest thing is that we are not fighting against people, but real inhumans, godless. The ungodly bacchanalia, directed and financed overseas, is now being done at the hands of the Ukrainian authorities.”

And also: “Democracy is based on anti-biblical values, therefore the fight against it for us, for all representatives of the Russian world, is as sacred as the fight against the antichrist. And today, the only power that can enter this struggle and win is Russia.”

The new curriculum has not yet been published, but, according to insiders, it will be based on the book by Chief Military Chaplain Dimitrii Vasilenkov, From Death to Life… At War. Password Donbas”.
