Pictured is Patriarch Kirill I, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church. Something is different between the two images. Can you spot the difference?In the left image the Patriarch is wearing a $30,000 Breguet wristwatch and the image on the right, it’s miraculously disappeared. After Russian bloggers noticed the expensive timepiece, the Church released the second image with the watch airbrushed out. Just one problem – the reflection of the watch on the table is still visible.
At first the Patriarch insisted that he had never worn the watch and that any photos showing him wearing the watch must have been doctored. He lied. The Church has since issued a statement claiming “The guilty will be severely punished.”
Patriarch Kirill, the country’s ethical compass, publicly backed Vladimir V. Putin in last month’s presidential election.
