The coven, a group or gathering of witches, convened in support of Russian President Vladimir Putin with the goal of using magical spells and curses to improve the nation. To enact the ceremony the lead witch Alyona Polyn rings a bell and recites spells and curses while the surrounding witches stand in a circle holding spell books. She said: “We have gathered her to make the world better of through Russia.
“We respect our president.
“A person of power can’t not respect the existing authority.
“It is very important for us that all the decisions in this country are carried out in a correct manner.
“We understand that the power must aid the authorities and aid the nation and subsequently, the earth.
“Oh primordial power, return to the abyss those who wish hate upon Russia.
“May Russia rise and step away from grief and poverty and may the coming days open the gates of happiness for Russia, all hail.”
The surrounding woman all then repeated “hail” in support of the Russian President.
The woman leading the group of witches also spoke to reporters and said: “I must say, this is not a rally, this is a circle of power.
“I associate a rally as people walking with signs and chanting some with little result.
“This is concrete action, a magical act aimed at improving quality of Russia, on planet earth and of course, to help the president.”
The leader witch also told the Russian media that the ceremony, which lasted roughly 20 minutes, was held in support of the state and the president as he is the face of Russia.
One incantation from the meeting read: “He who hears and does not hear, who sees and does not see, who was and will be, will not forget my word.
“Rise the great power of Russia, direct the path of Vladimir Putin truly and righteously, through my word.”
A curse directed at Putin’s enemies was also read aloud: “Who comes to us with evil, who leaves us with evil, who hurts us or speaks evil.
“Forever,eternally and endlessly damned enemies, enemies damned.”
The head of the group also clarified that the overall goal was aimed at “improving the quality of life on earth through Russia” not to just support the president through their witchcraft.
