The Politics of Religion in Putin’s Russia
The 2014 U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom report discusses freedom of belief in today’s Russia. The seminar addressed the report and such issues as church-state relations, new legislation, the four designated “traditional” religions (Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, and Orthodox Christianity), and the status of Russia’s diverse and numerous religious minorities.
