Ein orthodoxer Bischof segnet russische Raketen vor dem Einsatz in Syrien
As Russia continues to deepen its military involvement in Syria, the conflict has increasingly taken on religious dimensions. In the above photo, an Orthodox bishop blesses Russian missiles intended for airstrikes against Syrian rebels. According to Reuters reporter Noah Browning, the bishop is sprinkling holy water on the missile before it is put aboard a Russian plane.
The blessing of missiles comes after Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, declared that Russia’s intervention in Syria, which is aimed at the rebels currently aligned against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is a “holy battle.”
“Russia took a responsible decision to use military forces to protect the Syrian people from the woes brought on by the tyranny of terrorists,” the Patriarch said.
