MOSCOW, February 14 – RIA Novosti. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia has not yet reached its peak and is “on the march of development”, despite the fact that the country has many problems, it is a fairly young nation, the “core” of its future is patriotism and love for the motherland.
The president said this at a meeting with editors of the Russian media, the footage of which was shown on the air of “Russia 24”. The conversation touched upon the West and the United States.
“Now, you just said about exclusivity. They swear an oath to their people on what? On the Bible. And what does the Bible say? That everyone is equal before the Lord. In the Bible, marriage is a union between a man and a woman, he swears on the Bible and breaks it. So he is violating his oath to the American people? There are a lot of contradictions in these things. And this does not mean at all that we should follow their example, “Putin said.
According to him, “every nation, like every person, has its own destiny.” “I believe in passionarity, in the theory of passionarity. This is, in fact, like in nature, society, – there is a development, a peak, a fading. Russia has not reached its peak. We are on the march, on the march of development,” the President of the Russian Federation stressed.
He noted that the country went through difficult trials in the 1990s and early 2000s, but “it is on the march of development.” At the same time, according to him, “the feeling of patriotism, love for the Motherland and Fatherland is the core of our future.”
“Because if you don’t love your fatherland, treat it with a disregard, disdain, don’t give a damn about your history, your old people, in whom we are reflected in reality, to humiliate them and their achievements, it means not to believe in the future. I am absolutely convinced of this, it exists, “Putin said.
“So, I look at what is happening in our country: there are a lot of problems, but we are still, unlike other old or rapidly aging nations, still on the rise, we are a fairly young nation. We have an infinite genetic code. It is based on the mixing of bloods, if so in a simple way, in a popular way, “the president added.
He noted that development is possible if interethnic and interfaith unity, respect for every person who lives in this territory is maintained.
“So that everyone who lives here feels that this is his homeland, even being a representative of the smallest nation. Therefore, all this can be combined in one word – patriotism. Everything that I am telling you now, I say spontaneously, right into the head comes. If you think about it, you can probably formulate more figuratively and accurately. But in fact it will be exactly what I just said, “Putin concluded.
