The West Crusade and the Fifth Column of Orthodoxy Punishers at MSU

Friends, we are happy to offer you a unique article by an English independent researcher Kenneth Leslie "Ukraine, Russia and the Third Crusade", which is translated into Russian, edited, commented and published on a special page here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1128. It was sent to the leaders of Russia, Patriarch Kirill and the rector of Moscow State University (MSU).
The author ingeniously packed the century-old history of the West since 1914 into its three Crusades against Russia, the spearhead of the last of which he recognizes as a direct and open attack on the religious Orthodox confession of Ukraine, not without reference to our Petition in its defense:
Orthodoxy is the only spiritual core of the thousand-year-old Russian civilization, it has no other, therefore its scrapping in any place is the destroy beginning of our civilization. In 2014 is “the beginning of the third and in my view, last, Crusade”, the victory of which over Russia he connects, first of all, with the destruction of Orthodoxy in Ukraine and the conversion of its believers to Catholics “by fire and sword.” The author qualifies similar outcome as a victory for the "festering evil of religious Nazism".
The logical continuation and completion of the brilliant analysis of the anti-Russian crusades can be his analysis of three similar ideological projects of "Anti-Orthodoxy" in Russia itself, starting since 1917, its official atheistic and punitive ideologies hostile to it. We have outlined these projects in our commentary on Leslie's article, see them on his page.
The facts of complete disregard, indifference and hostility to Orthodoxy at the MSU "Globalistics" Congress in April 17-27, together with the facts of penetration into it of well-disguised Bandera elements that actively operate and rule in it, disgracing it, is illustrated by its "Program" (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=1027) and events in it, as well as additional evidence in my commentary. They confirm the extremely humiliated position of Orthodoxy in society, almost as in the period of its greatest destruction in 1917-1940. But it is realized in other, more sophisticated and disguised forms, reducing it almost to zero. The ideological crusades against Orthodoxy of the fifth column of Russia over the course of a century have almost completely captured science, education and the media, ousting Orthodoxy from them, despite pitiful handouts to it. Why are Western researchers talking about similar crusades, but Russian academics and university congresses are silent?
We are waiting for your feedback on this issue, which will be published on our website.
