The wars of religion were a complete success in the sense that THEY STOPPED.
Shaa is referring to the political and societal development in Western Europe as a couple of centuries of "experiment" in a "bubble", language that evokes the idea not only that this is not representative, but more importantly that it's ephemeral. I.e. "normalcy", of which Russia then supposedly is representative, will reassert itself. And normalcy then is precisely things like wars of religion.
Enjoy that Russian future.
