As explained in a release the Agency, the choice of the Archangel Michael determined, “semantics”: first, explains Markin, in Scripture and revelation, the Archangel is the main fighter against evil among humans and supernatural forces, and in the iconography spear pierces the devil and poprawe” rich old man – a symbol of “corruption offences”.
Secondly, the Archangel helps guard the gates of Paradise” to distinguish the righteous from the wicked. Here in the UK can see the analogy with the proceedings”, and therefore the implementation of the immediate objectives of the Department.
Following the selection of an Archangel as a guardian, SK and ROC must enter into a cooperation agreement, whose goal will be “the revival and strengthening of spirituality, based on traditional moral values”, the fight against “the spiritual degradation of the people” and combating “terrorism, extremism, corruption, immorality,” and “negative trends based on a false understanding of freedom and human rights.”
Markin also noted that due to the presence of the image of the Archangel Michael in Islam, it can be read in the offices of the IC in the North Caucasus.
We will remind that recently the head of Department Alexander Bastrykin is seeking support from various cultural figures: for example, at the end of last week, he met with the head of the Moscow art theatre Oleg Tabakov, enlisting his help in the spiritual development of young investigators and the suppression of sexual promiscuity and criminal romance.
Previously Bastrykin also met with Boris Grebenshikov, asking him for assistance in charity projects.
Hardware position of the head IC analysts assessed as “insignificant”, and a Professor of MGIMO Valery Solovey on Monday announced that the head of Department does not wish to communicate, the President of the Russian Federation, and, thus, he could face imminent resignation.Related posts:
