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?
