Vladimir Putin was sent to Russia by God, the Kremlin’s top political adviser says.

Meanwhile, a Moscow sect reportedly is convinced Putin is the reincarnation of the Apostle Paul. 

“To be honest, I think of Putin as a person who was sent to Russia by fate and the Almighty at a difficult hour,” Vladislav Surkov, the first deputy administration chief, said on Chechen television, according to the Interfax news agency.

Surkov serves in the administration of President Dmitry Medvedev but also served during Putin’s two-year presidential term and is considered one of Putin’s closest allies.

Putin stepped down as president and now serves as prime minister. He has not said if he will run in the presidential election in March. He is Russia’s most popular politician, according to polls.

The Russian media in May reported that a  sect is now teaching Putin is actually St. Paul back from the dead.
