It is no secret that the creation of this schismatic church formation in Ukraine is an American project aimed at undermining the position of the canonical Orthodox Church in Ukraine – the Ukrainian Orthodox Church [of the Moscow Patriarchy].
Moscow does not interfere into politics, social programs and ideology of the internal political life of its customers and partners.
There is ample evidence of Russia’s involvement in the internal affairs of different states in Africa and the Middle East. For instance, Russian paramilitary organisation Wagner Group has been involved in military conflicts and civil unrest in Africa. According to Bloomberg, the Wagner Group works in at least 10 African countries, such as Sudan, Central African Republic, Angola, and Zimbabwe. On Madagascar, the Group accompanied the Russian political experts who were advising some of the presidential candidates on general elections in 2018. Wagner Group also provides military assistance in exchange for access to mineral resources. More on Wagner Group’s involvement is here and here. Moreover, it is also a fact that Russia is involved in numerous conflicts around the world, from Syria to Ukraine.
