(Un)Holy Alliance: Vladimir Putin And The Russian Orthodox Church

Amidst the geopolitical confrontation between Vladimir Putin’s Russia and the US and its allies, little attention has been payed to the role played by religion either as a shaper of Russian domestic politics or as a means of understanding Putin’s international actions. The role of religion has long tended to get short thrift in the study of statecraft (although it has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance of late), yet nowhere has it played a more prominent role – and perhaps nowhere has its importance been more unrecognized – than in its role in supporting the Russian state and Russia’s current place in world affairs.
