Vladimir Putin - "the reincarnation of the apostle Paul"
The reincarnated apostle accepting the "Icon of Vladmir"
Forget all those pictures portraiting Vladimir Putin as a bare-chested macho man. God has now revealed the true identity of Russia´s ruler to Svetlana Frolova, a former convict turned nun, and now the leader of a Russian orthodox sect based in Nizhny Novgorod. The former KGB spy is actually the reincarnation of the apostle Paul and the founder of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Frolova, who now calls herself "Mother Fotinya", told Moscow Times that "I say what the Lord has revealed to me,":
"I love Putin as our No. 1, our commander, the captain of our great ship, and he is worthy of our love," said Frolova, who says she was "reborn" as Mother Fotinya after serving a 21-month sentence for fraud in 1996.
She says God spoke to her and revealed that Putin's past lives included that of Grand Prince Vladimir of Rus, credited with founding the Russian Orthodox Church more than a millennia ago.
"Every one of us has many incarnations. St. Paul was indeed one of Putin's," she said in an interview, her high-pitched voice bouncing off the icon-hung walls of her sanctuary in Bolshaya Yelnya, a village near the city of Nizhny Novgorod, some 410 kilometers east of Moscow.
In addition to her knowledge about the past, "Mother Fotinya" seems to have an excellent grasp of the political situation in Russia:
"He has the soul of a tsar. It's not by chance that he is now president," she said, sighing.
When reminded that Putin is prime minister while Medvedev is president, she said Putin remained Russia's boss.
"You can be prime minister and still remain president. Medvedev is merely Putin's student," she said.

Putin´s advisers disclaim any link to "Mother Fotinya", but they apparently have refrained from refuting the substance of her story.
