When USSR fell, Western "meddling" left its mark on the Russian constitution written at the time. Referendum took place yesterday – 78% voted for the set of amendments. Among the amendments...
• Reference to God.
• Defining marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman.
• Persons who hold "important positions for ensuring the country's security" (President, Ministers, judges, heads of regions) SHOULD NOT HAVE FOREIGN CITIZENSHIP OR RESIDENCE PERMIT IN OTHER COUNTRIES, either at the time of their work in office or, in the case of the President, at any time before.
Moral of the story – Russia recovering from a century of state-enforced secularism. No despair. Be fruitful and multiply.
