Sustainability and religion-related aspects of the conflict in Ukraine

Abstract

Religions are relevant to the issues of sustainability. Atheistic propaganda in the former Soviet Union was efficient. The recent religious revival in Russia is partly insincere and superficial, being a matter of politics. Apparently, many today's churchgoers, priests and church officials are atheists or agnostics, habitually following official policies. Some church functionaries, endorsing the Ukraine war, engage in moralizing, among others opposing to abortions, sex education and birth control, depicting childbearing as a duty. Ramzan Kadyrov, head and mufti (Islamic jurist) of Chechen Republic, declared the war in Ukraine a jihad and urged Russian Muslims to fight the demons. Should the power in Europe shift to the East, it would come along with losses of some moral values. An autocratic management style would come instead. In the healthcare, attributes of this style include a paternalistic approach to patients, hampering objective discussion and criticism. A preferred perspective would be a leadership based on the principles of mercy, modesty and forgiveness, aimed at preservation of human life and health.
