In a letter from Albert Pike, capo di tutti capi, to his fellow free-masons and satanists [translation is from French via Google translate]:
"But it is also written that Pope Wanderer, the shepherd of a scattered flock, is the pilot of the helpless bark of Cephas, and the sixth successor of the man of pride under which the temporal power of the infamous pontificate collapsed , Will be gathered, after expulsions on expulsions, by the Slavic autocrat, who will affect to render him great honors. The adonaism then tried to reconstitute itself as before the expulsion of Rome; The Pope-Errant being near death in Russia, the imperial autocrat will prostrate himself at his feet, and the nations practicing orthodoxy until then, that is, the schismatic religion of the East, will soon Ancient Roman Catholicism, vomited from Italy. The wandering Pope, on his deathbed, will be delighted to see these new adepts replace the newly separated Westerners of his Church, and among the nations that have operated the division of Adonaism he will still have faithful, Hiding in order to devote himself to the practices of reprobate superstition; Before expiring, he will have maintained the episcopacy to the bishops of the schism of the East, and he will have instituted among them Greek and Russian cardinals. His successor will be a Slavic; The siege of the adonite Papacy will be established in the northern city of Peter, subject to the reconquest of Rome. But it will be in vain that the imperial autocrat, in the hope of extending his dominion, will be crossed with the adonaism; Its efforts will not succeed, and the Roman Church will remain fragmented in the nations of the European Occident. Thus, Russia will be the last refuge and the last rampart of the adonaism claiming to be Catholic."

Obviously God is more powerful than Satan, and much of Pike's plan has not come about in the exact way he predicted. Nevertheless, this is what the enemy is thinking. Satanist or Catholic, whichever side you are on, Russia is the focal-point.
