Take that for what you will.

Well, not only Russian propaganda sites are reporting this. In Lithuania, all the mainstream media channels are talking about this (e.g. http://www.delfi.lt/news/daily/world/akibrokstas-popiezius-pasipuose-georgijaus-juostele.d?id=71197480 or http://pasaulis.lrytas.lt/ivykiai/popiezius-pranciskus-isisege-georgijaus-juostele.htm).
Also Polish “Rzeczpospolita” is writing about what happened in St. Peter’s Square – http://www.rp.pl/Swiat/305069952-Papiez-z-symbolem-rosyjskich-nacjonalistow.html#ap-1
