Putinganda claimed the "Big Threat" was Ukraine joining NATO, which probably isn't even going to happen!. So Russia's real reason for attacking its neighbor comes down to the Gay Pride parades in Kiev, as Bishop Kirill himself stated.
After all, the 10 Commandments forbid homosexual behavior, and Russia has declared itself God's Army. "Thou Shalt Not Be Gay" is a MUCH more important Commandment than "Thou Shalt Not Kill", according to the Russian Orthodox Church.
Putin expected an easy takeover of Ukraine. Boy, was he wrong. He stirred up a hornets' nest!
