MP's Motives Are Showing

If one reads this entire article, one can get a glimpse of the Kremlin's long range plan, of it's USE of it's captive MP-'church', and of it's captive ROCOR-MP.
They want it as a religious, 'spiritual' front, for their neo-soviet-'Russian' imperialism.
Their real aims, are entirely POLITICAL/MILITARY/ESPIONAGE motivated.
Thus, we must suspect that EVERY new 'Russian Cathedral' that Moscow builds or wants to build, around the world is, or will be, but a center for their espionage masked in Orthodox liturgical robes.
We must suspect too, this Kremlin purpose for their new captive ROCOR-MP, though most on the parish level have been duped, and seem (so far) to be unable to see this.
After all, they were fooled into seeing the KGB-run MP as, 'The Mother Church', so if they believe that big lie, why won't they also believe any and all other lies from Moscow?

Russia Vows to Defend Rights as Czarist Creditors Seek Lawsuit

Feb. 9 (Bloomberg) -- The Russian government vowed to “defend our rights” after French holders of czarist bonds valued at as much as 100 billion euros ($137 billion) threatened to sue the Kremlin and seize property it owns in Paris. 

“May God help them,” Viktor Khrekov, a spokesman for the Kremlin Property Department, said by phone today from Moscow, after the Paris-based International Federative Association for Russian Bond Holders, or AFIPER, pledged to sue to recoup part of the century-old debt. 

“We have experience defending our property abroad,” said Khrekov. “Russia and France settled this debt a long time ago, so if they are planning to sue they will also have to deal with the French government. But they’re welcome to file a lawsuit; we will defend our rights.” 

AFIPER’s announcement yesterday came after the French Budget Ministry said Russia had purchased the Meteo France building near the Eiffel Tower in Paris for an undisclosed sum. 

France was a key market for Russian bonds before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, with royalty to workers buying them for savings. Holders of czarist debt have clamored for a better deal since 1996, when Russia made a $400 million payment that France said “definitively” settled debt incurred to it before 1945. 

Creditors Clamor 

Some creditors accepted about 50 euros per bond as part of that agreement while others held out, saying the bonds should be valued at as much as 10,000 euros each. 

“The Russian state owes the French people a lot of money and there is no date limit for that, even if some of this debt is more than 100 years old,” said Eric Sanitas, director of AFIPER, which estimates that as many as 10 million czarist bonds may be in French hands. 

Sanitas said AFIPER can only take legal action if Russia doesn’t designate its Paris land as diplomatic property. The Kremlin says it will build a “cultural-spiritual center” on the site of the meteorological institute on the banks of the Seine river. 

“A church can’t be a diplomatic territory -- well, not usually,” Sanitas said in a telephone interview. 

The new plot will be used to build an Orthodox cathedral, said Khrekov, who declined to comment on financial details of the property sale. Construction will begin after Meteo France vacates the building in 2011 and may take two years, he said. 

Orthodox Cathedral 

“The construction of an Orthodox cathedral will become a symbol of friendship and spirituality between the two countries,” Russian Orthodox Church spokesman Fyodor Ryabikh said. “This means the French government is paying special attention to the development of relations with our country.” 

Sanitas said a recent French court ruling that handed Russia ownership of an Orthodox cathedral built in the coastal city of Nice on the orders of Czar Nicholas II may play to his organization’s favor. 

The onion-domed Cathedral of St. Nicholas, the largest Russian church outside the country, and its contents including hundreds of precious religious icons belong to Russia, a Nice court ruled on Jan. 20. The Kremlin had argued that the czar bought the land for the state and not his family. 

Sanitas said AFIPER will sue to seize the Nice church if an appeals court upholds that ruling. 

“Russia says czarist-era problems are no longer its problem, but seeing as they want the Nice cathedral back, it seems czarist property is theirs,” Sanitas said. “Well, their non-refunded debt will be their property, too.”

I suspect as Daniel does that this will not open the eyes of those who have been duped. If they did not see it when the MP put a cathedral in Cuba, they won't see this in France. They will probably excuse it saying how nice that 0rthodoxy is spreading all over the world.

And see how MP blows hot and cold. When it is convenient they are the Tzarist gov't. And when it is not convenient they are not the Tzarist gov't. I don't see how anyone can go along with this obvious snake unless they are hypnotized.
