re: The Church informs us that we are not even supposed to go around stating someone, other than perhaps Judas and, of course, the fallen angels, are in hell.
That keeps being repeated by people in the Novus Ordo, but there is no such teaching. Everyone who dies outside of the Church is in hell.
The Sacred Congregation of the Propagation of the Faith, under Pope St. Pius X, in 1907, in answer to a question as to whether Confucius could have been saved, wrote:
“It is not allowed to affirm that Confucius was saved. Christians, when interrogated, must answer that those who die as infidels are damned”.
Moreover, Putin is no different than all baptized heretics, he is a heretic and outside of the Church where there is no sanctifying grace. Putin is no different than Billy Graham or any other "conservative Christian, ALL on the road to hell.
