24 February 2015. Our Great Russian Motherland: Shuldan in the Crimea

00 Shuldan. Crimea. Russia. 24.02.15

______________________________

This is part of a cave-monastery founded in the 14th century, but this tower only dates to the early 2000s. Shuldan isn’t part of the Republic of the Crimea, it’s actually part of the territory of the Federal City of Sevastopol. The Uniate creepozoids in the “Ukrainian” government harassed this monastery, but that stopped when the region reunited with Russia in the early 2000s. That’s why no Orthodox person can support the junta now sitting in Kiev, not only does it smash its boot full-force into the faces of ordinary people and wage a war of aggression against Novorossiya, it supports the Uniate and schismatical enemies of the Church. That’s why no Orthodox Christian can support the Republican Party or “conservatism”… these factions support the Uniate junta… just sayin’…
