Sometimes, I wonder...

Why has Russia always been in some decades delay in comparison with other Christian countries?
Why has Russia never been up-to-date in any era in comparison with other Christian countries (for example communism)?
Why currently Russia has "friends" many muslim countries, especially the Turkic ones, for example Kazakhstan, Turkey, Iran etc and enemies the western Christian countries?

Maybe because the 10-20 millions of muslim Turkic people, living in Russia, for example Tatars, Bashkirs, Chuvash etc have the control of government and country? Maybe Putin is not Christian orthodox, but muslim Tatar?

Maybe the Christian Russian ethnic group is sleeping very well?

What is your opinion? Probably, the situation is more complicated, but sometimes you can fill in puzzles with simple thoughts.

Yep, you exposed the secret Turco-Muslim conspiracy.

Also, have you noticed the resemblence between the names Москва and Makkah? A coincidence? I doubt it...

A minor disturbance in the force, the Chuvash are Orthodox Christians
No my friend. Chuvash are Turkish and secret muslims. They have a secret cabal allied with the elders of Turks and sacrifice virgin Christian childrens on full moon day.

Historically, the Mongols and Turkic peoples have held control and influence over what is Russia, but not today. As you probably know, religion was squashed during the communist era, or at least the Soviet officials tried.

That is because marxism is a Western and European ideology, which has nothing to do with Muslim culture or philosophy. I don't even remember any "important" communist who was born Muslim.

You know, for those who lived in the Soviet Union, the question makes no sense. For decades, we were all steaming in one common stew. And while there is way more nationalistic awareness in "post-Soviet space", old ties die hard. This is why Russia is not paranoid about Islam of Central Asia. And there were so many mixed marriages in old times, it does not even matter, who is Chuvash, and who is not. All the more so that Chuvashia is ethnically heterogeneous, too. Russian nationalism never runs deep. I seriously doubt it was ever in Russian nature, because as a huge country, it absorbed so many ethnic groups.

Chuvash is not Turkish, but Turkic language. Chuvash language is the last surviving member of the Oghur branch and quite different from the other Turkic languages. Turkish belongs to Oghuz branch and has more in common with Bashkir and Tatar (Crimean and Siberian sub-branches) than with Chuvash. There is a lot of Turkic ppl, but only one Turkish nation.

Regarding the proverb 'Scratch a Russian and find a Tatar' one should bear in mind that Tatar was used to denote Mongols AND different Turkic peoples under Mongol rule & their descendants. After 2 centuries of Mongol yoke until the final victory of Ivan III the Great and afterwards there was a lot of mixing between different ethnic groups in this area. For example Naryshkin boyars were of Tatar descent, the mother of Peter the Great is Naryshkina. Or look at the notorious eyes of the comrade Lenin, he was partly of Kalmyk descent.

Regarding religion/s and communism, muslim communist is oxymoron, because by default communists are fierce militant atheists so it doesnt matter if the communist comes from devout muslim, christan or jewish family he or she is an atheist.
