On March 12, about 100 self-described witches gathered at an indoor facility to call upon supernatural entities, and presumably the forces of darkness, to strengthen Russian President Vladimir Putin and help him in his invasion of Ukraine, reported Asia News.
The witches wore dark capes and hoods, and recited incantations.
Aljona Polin, Russia's leading witch and founder of the Great Witches of Russia association, according to Asia News, said, "Those who hear, but do not hear, those who see, but do not see, those who are there, were there and will be there, will not forget my word: raise the strength of Russia, direct our President Vladimir Putin on the path of justice."
"Let the great strength of Russia manifest itself," Aljona intoned. The other witches responded, "Indeed."
In the middle of the room where the witches gathered there was a shawl with a picture of Putin on it, next to a candle.
One of the witches said, "Putin is fighting for us, against all those who attack him, and we want to make sure that all these servants of lies shut up forever," reported Asia News.
One of the curses made reads, "Those who pretend to pass through our midst, those who have decided to leave us, those who lie in everything they say, for ever and ever these enemies will be cursed!" Then other witches responded, "Cursed, cursed!"
"The ritual lasted about 20 minutes in all, with a final physical connection of all the witches joining hands and energies, entering into a spiritual connection with Putin himself," reported Asia News.
