Russian television briefly showed Vladimir Putin attending the Christmas service alone in the Kremlin, wearing a white sweater and blue jacket, before he was linked to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.

Last year, Putin also attended the Christmas service alone at his residence in Novo Ogaryovo, on the outskirts of the Russian capital. At Christmas 2021, he was with other believers at the Divine Liturgy in Novgorod.

The Russian Orthodox Church supports the invasion of Ukraine. Patriarch Kirill appealed on Thursday for a 36-hour truce to celebrate Christmas in Russia and Ukraine. Russia’s president ordered a unilateral ceasefire, which the Ukrainian government rejected.
