And after reading your linked articles, I fail to find any proof of a major change in Russian religious attitudes. The years just after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 would mark the end of the suppression of religious beliefs. People were then able to express their actual beliefs for the first time in decades. It is hardly surprising that it took a few years for people to stop fearing retaliation and state their beliefs honestly. And also hardly surprising that a few decades of one state policy did not erase the effects of nearly a thousand years of an earlier state's policy. Have you got any surveys of the Russian population since then? Especially recently?
