Life Story & Timeline

2019

Tikhon is rumoured to be the personal confessor and spiritual adviser (dukhovnik) of Russian president Vladimir Putin although both men neither confirm nor denied it. Once asked about his relations with Putin, Tikhon answered: “You can believe those rumours if you want, but they certainly aren’t spread by me,” adding “I am no Cardinal Richelieu!” Still the men are very close, with Putin often taking Tikhon on his international trips.
