    “Is it possible that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a closet Zionist? We know that in the past he has taken a strong stand against anti-Semitism. In his presidential address in the Hall of the Kremlin on December 4, 2014, Putin called the Crimea Peninsula, where the Russian Orthodox Church was established, and where Grand Prince Vladimir was baptized, sacred to Russia.
