Nicolai Petro: the Russian Orthodox Church
A 2011 IPSOS survey of twenty three European countries, claims that Russia is the most religious country in Europe. At the same time that Western European and American societies are secularizing, Russia, along with much of the former Soviet Union, is undergoing a resurgence of traditional organized religion. Obviously, this affects all aspects of public life, including my particular interest in this section--politics.
