Nationalism and Tradition: Russia According to Putin

In the eyes of many Russians, Vladimir Putin has restored Russia’s pride and made it a great superpower again. His program is based on a return to traditional values of the “Great Russia” of the Tsars: strong nationalism and orthodoxy. In Moscow alone, 60 churches have been built in recent years. To oppose the power of the church is to be considered an enemy of the nation.
