Mikhail Nikiforovich Katkov: “the deep distinction between Russia and all the nations of the world”

27 January 2023


“All power has its derivation from God; the Russian Czar, however, was granted a special significance distinguishing him from the rest of the world’s rulers…. He is a successor of the Caesars of the Eastern Empire,…the founders of the very creed of the Faith of Christ…. Herein lies the mystery of the deep distinction between Russia and all the nations of the world.”

      That would be an erroneous and foolish interpretation. There is a vast difference between a monarch and a president. And there is no suggestion whatsoever that the Czar was ever “An Incarnation of the Lord Almighty”.
