Address by Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Valdai-Forum
In this 3 minute video, Vladimir Putin asserts that Western civilization is founded upon its Christian roots and that any attempts to undermine and destroy Christianity will inevitably lead to a dystopian world in which most people will be reduced to slavery.
“In these countries,” Putin says, “the moral basis of any traditional identity are being denied — national, religious, cultural, and even gender identities are being denied or relativised. A family with many children is treated as equal to a homosexual partnership; and faith in God is equal to faith in Satan.”
People are now ashamed of their own religious affiliations, Putin points out. Christianity comes under daily attack. There is even widespread propaganda for pedophilia and sexual perversion. The fabric of society is breaking down.
“Without the moral values that are rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without rules and moral values which have been developed over millennia, people will inevitably lose any human dignity, i.e., become brutes. And we therefore think it right,” he concludes, “to defend and preserve these Christian moral values.”
