The concept was supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to TASS, the church has developed a concept to ensure the legal status of military priests and the establishment of social benefits for them. In October last year, the head of the department for interaction with the armed forces and law enforcement agencies of the Moscow Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, Alexander Dobrodeyev, spoke about the need to give priests traveling to the front social guarantees in case of injury or death, the same as those of the military.

 In December 20923, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia asked to fix in the legislation a deferral from mobilization for the clergy.
