Vladimir Putin Found Quoting Bible Verse During Pro-Russia Rally in Moscow to justify his full scale invasion of Ukraine to an audience of more than 200,000.
Last Friday, Vladimir Putin delivered a speech during Pro-Russia Rally in Moscow. The celebration marks the eighth anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
In Putin’s speech, he quoted a Bible verse that has confused many people around the world —especially Christians. It sounded weird that Mr. Putin tried to justify his invasion in Ukraine killing innocent souls with the Bible.
He quoted the Russian Constitution and how the law fortifies them to unite. Again, Putin quoted John 15:13 from the Bible.
“There is no greater love than giving up one’s soul for one’s friends,” he said, paraphrasing Jesus’ words from John 15:13.
He believes the Russian soldiers have been brave enough to fight real hard dying for each other on the battlefield.
Vladimir Putin said the “special military operation” in Ukraine is an effort to “save people from genocide” and to “demilitarize and denazify” the country.
Russian officials revealed that the rally was meant to foster patriotism among Russian citizens. More than 200,000 people gathered Friday in and around Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. Meanwhile, the stadium host a seating capacity of 81,000. Sources say many others were spotted outside the stadium.
