Patriarch Kirill urges wealthy Russians not to boast of their riches

“If those people, who have big money, cared not only for horsepower under their hood and number of floors in their mansions, but for how people around them look at these things, perhaps psychological atmosphere in our society would be better,” the patriarch said on Friday at the 4th Christmas Parliamentary meetings at the Federation Council.

He told that he had just returned from Switzerland and “no one demonstrates their wealth there.”

“Some of our sirs go there and immediately buy a house, and there should be a Maybach or a Rolls Royce near their house, which makes their rich neighbors protest. These rich neighbors often report it and it gives a start for criminal cases against our compatriots,” the patriarch said.
