Wow. Russia has religion? I thought they torture elderly, kill their teachers and off themselves on train tracks for fun?
I dont like how this was handled. They seemed to downplay the approval of the violence on women, didnt really address with the priest how he felt about the change in law. Didnt address how women felt about men creating this movement towards big families and homes with 7+ children. This documentary missed the mark on so many levels. They tiptoed around some serious issues.
So Putin said you can build churches if we train them to fight
The christian version of ISIS ..... Look how they train arms , breed and think.......

I would be careful with the british made documentaries about Russia, they are not looking for the truth.

The reason why they like Trump is because Trump will bring ruin to our country. I met some foreigners from Mexico and other foreign countries who are celebrating because Trump won precisely because they know he isn’t a true conservative or traditional or a good business man or president for that matter and thus he will ruin us and thus the foreigners love him. He’s unknowingly their instrument of chaos against us. 😕 I was shocked when I heard this from many of them I’ve met over the years and on my travels. From a military perspective, I’d say our glory days are behind us in all aspects, economy, family, Values, respect, dignity, Honor, prestige, military might. and we are in dangerous waters right now, the red flag of that? That our enemies abroad are very happy and our allies abroad are very unhappy. Things gotta change and fast.

9 is not 6 and 6 is not 9 Its all about ones perspective .Very definition of right and wrong changes from society to society , place to place, culture to culture and even country to country. Rather then abolishing these differences we should accept accept them and create vibrant and sustainable society where everyone gets their due pride, opportunity, respect, Honor and identity.

Any extreme religion is a bad religion.
This is sickening. Looks like Russia is going backwards just like the USA

In a country bound by strict Islamic law, more Iranians than ever before are staying single. The government is so concerned that it set up an online dating agency to which they gave us exclusive access. Shaunagh Connaire went to Tehran in 2016 to find out about dating, Iranian style.
