Defender of the faith

Tom Nichols on Twitter: "Putin likes to be seen wearing an Orthodox cross, but has no trouble making war on his Orthodox brethren - on Palm Sunday."

To be fair, Putin never had many qualms about making war on his Orthodox brethren in Georgia. Now he's turned on his fellow East Slavs.

Let's not forget that one of Putin's alleged reasons for supporting Bashar al-Assad is to protect Eastern Christian minorities in Syria from violence.
