On June 1, 2020, Russia officially enshrined traditional marriage — a union between a man and a woman— in its constitution.
Russia’s new constitution also officially recognizes the role that the Orthodox Church has played in the history and the development of the Russian state.
According to Deutsche Welle, 78 percent of Russian voters pulled the lever in favor of the Constitutional reforms which included the extension of Putin’s term in office and a guaranteed minimum pension.-
Russian President Vladimir Putin made a strong statement to the Russian people, indicating that they were ones in charge of their political destiny:
“I will outline my stand once again. It is clear, unchangeable and absolutely firm: the updated constitution, all the proposed amendments will enter into force only if you approve and support them.”
With this vote casted, Christian marriage is law of the land in Russia.
Unlike its western counterparts, which have embraced political correctness, Russia actually makes efforts to preserve its nation and promote decent values.
If a government is to exist, it should at least promote pro-social behavior and not undermine its historic nation via social engineering or policies that destroy traditional institutions.
Ironically, Russia is one of the few superpowers that gets that.
