Now this is really interesting.
Russia has quite a history of conflict with Islam, having fought many wars against the Turks, the Persians, and vanquishing several Muslim khanates in the middle ages (Crimea, Kazan, Astrakhan).

One Muslim leader believes an alliance between Muslims and Orthodox Christian Russia was predicted in Islam’s holy book, The Quran.
