Putin is of the old school communists and it took him awhile to digest the church totally in to the power structure he designed. But by now he has fully realized that nationalism and religion is the corner stones of cementing a dictatorship. The belt buckles in nazi germany read "gott mit uns" and hitler was no less a devout christian than Putin is.

Gott mit uns pre-dates Hitler (who was billed as the Catholic "New Luther" by his propagandists), but there are plenty of other blatantly NAZI-Xtian symbols, as illustrated here! - http://nobeliefs.com/mementoes.htm
