Putin celebrated Christmas within the walls of the Kremlin for the first time in 23 years: the media explained why (video)

Putin last celebrated Orthodox Christmas in Moscow 20 years ago, in 2001. It was in the cathedral that the Russian tsars traditionally confessed.

During a church service on Christmas Day, Vladimir Putin was watched closely by armed guards. There were no other parishioners in the church building, except the president of Russia. Reported by The Sun.

In the recording, you can see how the Kremlin’s head restlessly shifted from one foot to the other.

At the same time, a guard watches from another room.

For the first time since he took over the Russian Federation 23 years ago, Putin chose the Annunciation Cathedral, which is located behind the Kremlin wall and is considered fully protected, to attend the Christmas service.

In previous years, he attended the Christmas service with other believers. But there was one in 2023.

It is believed that Putin feared assassination attempts due to the war in Ukraine, thus breaking the tradition of visiting Orthodox cathedrals outside the Russian capital.

Wearing a blue jacket and a white sweater, Putin was in the cathedral where Russian tsars traditionally confessed their sins.

In the past years, Putin has visited the Church of Simeon and Anna, as well as St. He was among other believers in the Transfiguration Cathedral in St. Petersburg.

He last celebrated Orthodox Christmas in Moscow 20 years ago, in 2001.

Recall that by decree Putin recognized all occupied territories as part of Ukraine. This was reported in a document addressed to the Russian Armed Forces, in which the Kremlin chief ordered a “Christmas truce”.
