Quote from: SirAndrewD on September 01, 2022, 11:00:53 PMPutin does not, and has NEVER wanted to restore the Soviet Union. He wants the Russian Empire. He wants Ceasropapism, endorsed by the Orthodox Church from the Roman Throne in Moscow. [...] [He's] a major adherent to the idea that Russia is the "Third Rome", it's something he's mentioned several times. To that end, he is very tied to the influence, power and authority that the Orthodox church gave to the Russian Empire and the idea that the Tsar was also the Chief of Religion with a subordinate Patriarch.Religious? No, but he he understands the power over people Religion provides and its importance to Imperial Russian ideals.
