A Meeting with Russia Americans Probably Won’t Be Hearing About

But maybe they should, for the sake of a balanced view of Russia (as opposed to the false, diabolical picture that Fox News, CNN, etc. present).

It was between Patriarch Kirill and the new [u]. S. Ambassador to Russia, John Huntsman:

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia met with newly-appointed American ambassador to Russia John Huntsman at the patriarchal residence yesterday to discuss matters of relations between the two countries and of the fate of suffering Christians around the world, reports patriarchia.ru.

Welcoming the guest, Pat. Kirill noted that the Russian Church has a special relationship to the United States, as great missionaries like St. Herman of Alaska and St. Innocent labored for years to bring the Orthodox faith to the American continent. “In addition to his missionary service, [St. Innocent] carried out a very important cultural work, creating an Aleut alphabet. The Russian Church spread to California from Alaska, and then to the eastern shore,” His Holiness told the ambassador.

The patriarch also spoke of St. Tikhon of Moscow’s missionary service in America, noting that this year marks the centenary of the restoration of the Russian patriarchate and St. Tikhon’s election to the position. “The works that he and his predecessors carried out on the American continent still live, and there exists today the Orthodox Church in America, which our Church granted autocephaly in 1970.”

The patriarch went on to note that the relationship between believers is one of the human heart, between diplomats—of the mind, and between businessmen—of the stomach. “I don’t think we should exclude the heart from international relations,” His Holiness emphasized.

In the patriarch’s view, as he told Ambassador Huntsman, today’s difficulties go beyond the mere relations between states, but involve the differences of values and the different understanding of values. He explained to the diplomat that during Soviet times, the persecuted Christians of Russia had more in common in terms of values with the sincere Christians in America than with the atheists among their fellow Russians. “Despite the atheistic propaganda in our country, the religiosity was always very high, and it was, I think, a wonderful basis for the development of relations between the new Russia and USA,” the primate stated.

However, what happened in the Soviet Union is now happening in America, as His Holiness observed. “The West is abandoning God, but Russia is not abandoning God, like the majority of people in the world. That means the distance between our values is increasing,” Pat. Kirill said. At the same time, he expressed the conviction that many Americans remain religious, and so the ongoing anti-religious processes are a big internal challenge for the U.S.

“We would very much like if we could look and find the right answers to the challenges of modern civilization along with the religious American people,” His Holiness assured the ambassador.

The pair also discussed the situations of Christians in Syria, Iraq, and the Middle East, the situation of refugees, and how to restore destroyed churches and monasteries. They also spoke of the situation in Ukraine and the peacekeeping role of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

John Huntsman is a strange choice to be Ambassador to Orthodox Russia, as detailed below.  It makes sense, though, when one considers the globalist hatred of traditional Russia.


Jon Huntsman Jr. is an extremely curious figure for a number of reasons. Firstly, Utah is a traditional stronghold of Mormons, a pseudo-Christian sect, whose representatives have a serious representation in American elites. It includes, for example, Mitt Romney - Huntsman's second cousin. In 2012, Romney was a presidential candidate from the Republican Party and he openly called Russia "the No. 1 enemy of the United States" during the pre-election race.

Mormons are a very strong financial and administrative structure with millions of members who are extremely disciplined and united. They are able to influence not only US policy with the help of lobbyists and significant financial resources, but also global processes. In addition, it is known that a powerful "Israeli lobby" supported Romney in 2012, as Mormons traditionally tend to take pro-Israel positions.

A businessman with interests in the DPR

We should not forget about the business interests of the new ambassador, who is also the representative of Huntsman Corporation - one of the world's largest chemical companies created by his father. Formally, he is not the head of this company, because after leaving for politics, he passed control to his brother.

It is important to note that Huntsman Corporation agreed to build two polystyrene plants during the late USSR period: in Armenia and in Gorlovka, which is now controlled by the DPR (The Donetsk People's Republic). In other words, the new ambassador to Russia will represent not only the interests of the US but also his own business interests. Taking into account the level of Washington's relations with Kiev and Moscow, Huntsman will do everything possible to ensure that the DPR and the recreated Malorossia will not happen to be, and his plant will be passed under the control of  Kiev authorities.

Convinced Atlantist

Besides, Huntsman has been heading the Atlantic Council of the United States since 2014. It is a non-governmental organization whose main task is to ensure United States leadership in the international arena, based on the "central role of the Atlantic community in defying the challenges of the 21st century." It is sponsored by funds of representatives of global financial elites, NATO, federal agencies, including the CIA and the Pentagon, leading corporations.

Also, Huntsman managed to work as the US Ambassador to China, where he established himself as a supporter of "color revolutions."
Experts describe the case when Huntsman came to an opposition rally in Beijing, where pro-Western oppositionists unsuccessfully tried to copy the "Arab spring."  When journalists asked him what he was doing, Huntsman replied that "he just came to look at the district." Taking into account the experience of the new US ambassador to Russia, his main task is to destabilize relations between Moscow and Beijing and sabotage Eurasian integration projects at both the political and economic levels.
