"There may be different critical evaluations, but I can only offer spiritual evaluation of this kind of things," he quoted the patriarch as saying.
According to the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, "heroism is a spiritual concept that cannot be learned from books, it stems from a person’s spiritual life."
