20 years without patriotism and morality

39
Last weekend, Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the creation of a department for public projects under the Presidential Administration. It is reported that the main goals set for this structure are to provide high-quality patriotic education and build a moral and cultural field in Russia. The head of the new department was Pavel Zenkovich, who had previously been the second person in the management of the president’s internal policy and was responsible for the information sphere and interaction with public organizations and institutions.

Aspirations of the authorities are clear. The total confusion in the minds that prevails in Russian society does not allow us to speak about the real upbringing of patriotism, as they say, from young nails. We have been living in a new country for more than 20 years, but since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the situation with civil patriotic and moral education in society has steadily worsened. It would seem that the notes of spirituality are a priori embedded in any representative of the large Russian world, but these notes are almost completely eliminated in an era of stagnation.

At the beginning of 90, the old ideology that was instilled in every citizen of a large country was suddenly declared anti-popular and counterproductive for many. The authorities of that time not only did not hinder, but often even condoned the imposition of a new ideological content that was introduced from outside. Generations of people who admired the first metro-builders, space explorers and the power of their native country went into oblivion. Overnight, a muddy oil spot appeared on the public surface in the form of those who decided that it was the western way of life, the basis of which was total freedom from any sound principles, this is a new springboard for the development of a formed state.

People plunged into a new world with their heads, and in most cases this immersion was artificial. When the usual soil is knocked out from under the feet, then the person is ready to seize on any substance passing by. What Russia seized upon without frills can be called the most genuine public excrement, which literally flooded the river in our direction.
Today, by inertia, we are accustomed to say that all these new “ideals” that the Russians began to worship immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union were introduced exclusively by the West. However, the answer to this question can hardly be considered unambiguous. The fact is that if we consider the American experience of raising patriotism, then it cannot be called antisocial. Even today, we never cease to wonder what kind of sincere emotions among American citizens are caused, for example, by the reproduction of the hymn. In the eyes of those people who sing the national anthem of their country out loud (whether they are sportsmen, politicians or ordinary schoolchildren), they see that they do it quite sincerely, as they sincerely honor the memory of their ancestors.

But only here the destructive tendency, which reached Russia at the end of 80, really has nothing in common with the real social structure of Western life. Our country received the same ideological vacuum, which with its bottomlessness absorbed all spheres of life. Young people suddenly lost all moral guidelines, people of older generations found themselves in a very difficult situation, because now they had to explain to young people that their slogans were “wrong” and “anti-democratic”. At the same time, someone quickly, as it is now fashionable to say, entered into a trend and began to worship completely different values, while it was simply impossible for someone to give up the life orientations to which they devoted their whole lives. However, the latter turned out to be a kind of social outcasts, preaching retrograde and trying to recall the social norms that allowed them to be proud of their ancestors, to enjoy the victories and to experience the whole country of the sorrows of defeat. Such things quickly became unfashionable.

The very concept of “fostering patriotism” suddenly lost all meaning. Instead of the anthem, from which the goosebumps ran over our skin, we were suddenly presented with a hymn of a different level - a hymn that had no words. Our athletes, who won at international competitions, looked confused or rather helpless, because they did not know what to do when playing this hymn: someone scratching behind the ear, someone nervously fingered the edge of fitness, someone I looked away from the distance ... But sports victories can be called one of the segments of the education of the patriotic foundations of society. And if boys and girls understood that during the performance of the main musical work of the country, one can almost poke around or squat down on his nose, this would flow into total indifference both to the main symbols of the country and to this country as a whole, and to each other in particular.

Meanwhile, the country talked about the revival of religion. Orthodox churches, mosques, and synagogues were restored or rebuilt everywhere. The people in large numbers began to move into the category of the believers. It would seem that it is precisely religion that can become the very core that will form among Russians the concepts of morality and culture, around which a new stage of social development will begin. However, everything turned out quite differently.

No - the restoration of temples and the mass arrival of people to God at the end of 80's - the beginning of 90's - are things that, of course, can be called a social rebirth. But only with all the mass character of the process of unexpected transformation of a large percentage of Russians into "truly believing" people, there was no such rampant immorality and social and cultural chaos in our country even during times of complete ban on the activities of religious associations. It turns out that the religions of salvation again became hostages of a big political and economic game. The newly minted shepherds could afford to otmolit all the sins of a representative of the Moscow region organized criminal group for the fact that he decides to donate a substantial amount to the foundation of the parish under construction together with the “pastoral” refuge under construction. Moreover, it was often the case that the so-called “refuge of the holy father” was several hundred square meters larger than the parish under construction. How similar it is to the famous indulgences of the Middle Ages ... It turns out that in terms of the level of religious culture in the 90 year, our country was exactly at the medieval mark.

Complete disregard for the fundamentals of civil patriotic education led to the fact that even the bulwark of the country's reliability and security - the army - turned into a kind of disembodied scarecrow for young people. Conscription became not honorable, but convict. Such notions as “honor of uniform” or “word of officer” disappeared. The servicemen themselves turned out to be unnecessary neither for society nor for the state. Why? Yes, because in the country a stereotype was stubbornly implanted that the new Russia does not have, and there can be no enemies. Where did they come from, they say, if all the “progressive democracies” of the world are now “for us”, “for the Russian people”.

However, the very first acute armed conflict (the speech about the Chechen campaign) fully demonstrated not only that our enemies remained, but also that the army, which has no public support, is mostly fragmented parts of a demoralized whole. The fighters, many of whom were still in uniform with Soviet symbolism, while recovering into battle, did not understand what the true purpose of their mission was. If this goal is to preserve the unity and independence of the country, then why have they seen the enemy in their hands? weaponwhich was stored yesterday in Russian warehouses; if for the interests of democracy, then why were the intercepted talks of militants often in Arabic or English; if for the freedom of the local people, then why could the local people easily lead selected armed groups with green and black armbands on their heads to the disposition of the Russian army fighters ...

The concept of "patriot" was, by and large, a dirty word. A person who called himself that way could have been subjected to a real obstruction even within the walls of the Russian Parliament. Like, if a patriot, then this is either another, as the well-known lady in big glasses expresses, a “commie”, or someone who has mental health problems ... The most surprising thing is that this terminological trend spread to Russian land with amazing speed and became a new trend . By the way, today the word “patriot” often has an abusive tone. A person who speaks about the development of the country or its preventive successes, is immediately endowed with an amazing epithet of the "hurray-patriot", who, they say, is not aware of his mistakes. Here are just a few classic maxims about those for whom patriotism in Russia will always give only "hurray-patriotism."

- The development of sports say? .. Ha ha! Where already there - but at the Olympics "just" 24 "gold" ...

- Schools have introduced the basics of religious ethics and Orthodox culture, you say? ... Ha-ha! Well, now they will definitely push the heads of Christians and Muslims and finally collapse Russia ...

- We opened a new theater? .. It would be better if the authorities of old people raised a pension and a half rubles to raise ...


In general, over the years, a whole class of people managed to form, who are capable of any, even the most obvious, positively wrapped in a box with a mourning ribbon. These are professional negativists who catch their fish in troubled waters.

Even today, after Vladimir Putin announced the creation of a body responsible for civil-patriotic education in the country, many began to say that the authorities are again trying to force the citizens to love themselves. They say that all this “clawed hands” of the president are doing on purpose to introduce a total ideology in the country, a step to the left - a step to the right of which is a firing article. And just yesterday, the same people literally in all corners shouted that the authorities long ago it was time to take care of the education of morality in Russian society. But as soon as the authorities heeded these wishes, the record was immediately changed. It turns out that people who obstruct and this long overdue initiative of the president are simply not ready for an adequate perception of the situation. Their main task is to simply raise discrepancies with the authorities in order to increase their own information rating: the authorities will say “yes”, they will answer “no”, the authorities will say “no” and they will repeat “yes and yes!”

Yes, of course, patriotism and moral culture in Russia cannot be fostered solely by the creation of a special department, but no one says that the management of public projects will instantly solve all our social problems. The tone of a big and difficult path is set, to the exit to which each of us must make his own effort, if, of course, this problem is not an empty sound for us.

    Alexei, you have well laid out everything on the shelves of what happened, and even what will happen. But most importantly, Putin began the process of restoring patriotism 13 years ago. And it is the anthem that our hockey players sing, an example of this. Patriotism is a subtle thing. And in Chechnya, our guys understood that they were defending Russia, not the Russian Federation. But the bastards were, are and will be. Sold, sold and will sell ... weapons, conscience, homeland. But there are far fewer of them than good patriots. And the fact that a new department is being created only speaks of the attention of the authorities to the problem that needs to be known. And everything else is a game of the mind ...

      The article is interesting. I was born in the year perestroika began, grew up in the 90s, but I am an ardent patriot and it means a lot to me. I agree that patriotic education was not at school or on TV. The FATHER raised this feeling in me. Then the army consolidated it. Yes, Putin began the process of restoring patriotism, but we ourselves must support this, a lot of things depend on us.

      oh my god, the golden words of an intelligent person ... yes, my generation prosralized the authorities, I was born exactly during perestroika and saw 2 crises and 2 Chechen wars and how we simply turned into fierce selfish individuals ... I compare simply with the stories of old-timers and older people who have said more than once, it was mentally easier to live before, there were at least some ideals, but now they don’t exist .... I love my country, my people, land, but at the same time I hate the state in the face of a heap Jewish oligarchs, and so are in power .... but soulless, stupid officials ....

        Keep your chin up! There are many like you: young and with a core in your soul, and his name is patriotism! It's just that they bark more in the Swamp, and normal guys are silent, if something happens, they'll turn their head off for their country. I repeat the words of yet another "perestroika" peer.

      We even have the Duma and the government performing the Anthem of the Russian Federation stand silently, and you talk about hockey players, remember the Olympic games -gold and singing to the finalists. It’s not when the past is constantly blasted on all media channels, on films where selfless convicts save the country, and they are killed by the most infamous pointers, osobists and just commanders, they will throw the country in repentance for the unproven, and most likely falsified Katyn-we will bind even deeper in excrement.

    Official, outwardly coercive, official patriotism by no means always awakens and instills in the soul a sense of the Motherland, often even damages it. Meanwhile, an experienced and tactful educator can really awaken real patriotism in a child. But precisely to awaken, not to impose. To do this, he himself must be a sincere and convinced patriot and be able to convincingly show children the depths and beauty of the Motherland, which in fact deserve love and admiration. He should not "preach" love for the Motherland, but fascinatingly profess and prove it with deeds full of energy and devotion. He must, as it were, set the child's soul into the spiritual experience of his Motherland, draw it into it and teach her to stay in it and flourish in it creatively. Then patriotic self-determination will be realized freely and directly. And the child will become imperceptibly a living organ of his homeland.

    The government finally woke up, it came to them that without educating young people in the spirit of fidelity to their homeland, no state has any prospects - this is good. Next, let's see, this path will have to be tried and tested again.

      First of all, you need to start with yourself. From the State Duma. "Patriotism" and "morality", "honesty" and "decency" are in full swing there.
      It is high time to carry and show real values, real people, real heroes. They got tired of these glossy magazines, these same moronic faces on screens and scenes, "high life" and the hangouts of "one-celled" idlers and "gentlemen of fortune" thieves and bandits.
      We got to the point where we show a show with repeat offenders, 5-7 walks each. How they are taught to social life. They will teach them, they will like it. They will want to continue life like this and will not go to work, this is a "zapadlo". but rob. With so many dumb old people, orphans, sick and half-starved, forgotten and abandoned, the money goes to shows for mordovorotov who absolutely do not want to work, but live gorgeous.
      While the "heroes of the time" will include all of the above, it is too early to talk about patriotism and morality.

        Absolutely right! What morality of society can we talk about, even if children know that power at all levels is corrupt by 100% ?! Autocracy is actually established in the country, people are appointed to all key posts on the basis of personal loyalty, family ties, or personal acquaintance. A handful of renegades appropriated everything that was created by several generations of the people, disposes of natural resources at their discretion, makes laws in his narrow self-interest, ruins science, education, etc. And do these ghouls talk about morality? As an officer, I consider Putin an oath-criminal and a traitor to the motherland. He changed the oath and forgot the words that he solemnly uttered then about the hatred and contempt of the people, which would befall him in case of violation of the oath. I am sure that all normal officers think so!

          It is unlikely. Normal officers see that Putin overcame the mess of the 90s, removed Yeltsin, Berezovsky and Abramovich from power, the economy and social sphere are dynamically developing under him, the average salary is growing and is approaching already $ 1, especially the military’s monetary allowance has increased, on the basis of GDP growth and national income, finally, serious purchases of modern weapons and equipment have begun. Modern enterprises are being built in the country, modern technologies are being introduced, significant external investments are being made. Russia regains the status of a world power and its word today has weight in the world, in contrast to the Gorbachev-Yeltsin era. And for those who see only the negative, they should drink valerian.

            I do not see Putin overcoming the mess. GDP is the product of this mess. It’s just that after privatizing state-owned public property, the main privatizers were not interested in a further mess.

            Yeltsin, Berezovsky and Abramovich removed from power,
            I noticed that the names of these "comrades" are written with a small letter and therefore are somewhat common nouns, and yet why on earth are you claiming that Putin removed them from power? The Yeltsins handed over power to the GDP under the guarantees of their non-involvement, and after the death of the chief, in principle, could not remain in power.
            Obramovichs were never in power. Their path is big money and the main one is now considered the holder of the oligarchic common fund in London.
            Berezovsky ... here I must say that Berezovsky is alone and not even close to the second one. Therefore, he lost. he did not have allies at the right time. But before his loss, it was he who pushed the GDP to the very top.

                    Enlighten you as a Russian Russian. On May 15, a special 100-day campaign began in Beijing to “clean up” foreigners illegally entering and illegally entering China. For the first time in the Chinese capital, an open, centralized “purge” of “illegal” foreigners takes place.
                    In 2010, only 52 million 110 thousand foreigners entered China, which is 2.33 times more than 10 years ago. In 2011, about 20 thousand “illegal” foreigners were expelled from the PRC. It is obvious that the rapid development of China has turned the country into a new destination for citizens from other states who illegally enter, live or work in the territory of China.http: //russian.people.com.cn/95181/7817994.html
                    China, where it is actively struggling with overpopulation, has encountered a problem that has long been known: a real invasion of migrants. And not from anywhere, but from Africa, according to Vesti.
                    Dark-skinned guests in every way interfere with staying in the Celestial Empire, but this is far from always possible. The result - stormy assimilation and entire neighborhoods where it is almost impossible to meet the native citizen.
                    The area known in Guangzhou as the “Chocolate City” cannot be confused with anything. The largest African community in Asia is not Chinese exotic at all. Here are their restaurants, hairdressers, shops. According to official figures, about 20 thousand people from Africa live here, according to unofficial figures, there are almost ten times more, and this number is increasing by a third each year.

          Judging from your statement, the orders of the Supreme Commander are criminal. It does not seem to you that you are "to put it mildly" distorting a little. Considering the officers who, instead of expressing their hatred and contempt for him, carried out his orders (including on the conduct of hostilities) - bad officers! I think this is not normal.
          To consider GDP as an oath-criminal and speak out about this, this is purely your personal right. But no one gave you the right to classify officers who did not think so, to the category of non-normal.

And without a scientific basis and a deep philosophical understanding of the theory from the school bench, any bureaucratic propaganda is just a piss. Under Soviet rule, their works were practically banned and under liberalism oblivious. Moreover, you don’t have to turn to a thinking person who considers himself a patriot .. For example, he wrote about patriotism
      I. Ilyin back in the 20s
      "In our time, the time of the apparent collapse of Russia, but in fact, the time of its martyrdom, its historical justification and spiritual rebirth in a reincarnated form, in our days, ... when the Russian people, betrayed and abandoned by all other peoples, themselves with alone, ... gains freedom for himself by hunger and blood, trying ... to get out from under the ruins ...; it seems to me that everyone has a need to turn to Russia ... to look ... the paths and destinies, and the tasks of our Motherland ... to see them in their power and glory, to see them in their dangerous slopes and temptations, to see all this not only in the historical fabric of our country, but also in ourselves .. those, so that each of us can perceive in ourselves the wonderful gifts of our Russia, which constitute ... and those other whites, weaknesses, those unfinished and unsettled Russian souls that did not allow us to resist the world temptation, but brought our people to the pit of world history, those imperfections and incompletenesses of our national character, without overcoming of which we cannot build Russia, neither we nor our children and grandchildren ...

    A very good article. And we can congratulate Russia on finally tackling this problem. The author gives an example of Americans ... he correctly cites, but did not mention, that in the schools of the USA literally every class has the flag of the country and the day begins with the singing of the anthem. And it’s by class, because if you bring the whole school to the line in the morning (and in the Russian Federation it is also there), then not all children will sing, and it is not possible to follow each one. And the revival of patriotism will happen when they cease to spit on the USSR. In the history of each state there are dark and light pages. And it’s high time to remember what was good under the USSR and most importantly, how our country fought against fascism. Enough to humiliate our heroes who fell in this fight, and our veterans. However, the revival of patriotism will not go smoothly. There will be a real war with democratic values ​​imposed from outside.

    The intention of the authorities to engage in patriotic education should be embodied in real affairs, and not in the next talking room. For starters, to clean the media from anti-state programs, like with USAid the underworld, with NGOs: simply put insurmountable barriers and demands, and not pay attention to the moanings of the defenders , especially from the West. Make appropriate adjustments to school curricula and spit on Fursenkov’s remake, taking all the best from the Soviet system. Well and most importantly, stop squandering state property, return exported goods abroad, return big business to Russian jurisdiction, showing an example of patriotism on the part of the leadership country.

    “If you want to defeat the enemy, raise his children”
    Eastern wisdom


    12 September 2012 Putin made a speech about patriotism in Russia, but in reality Putin spoke of a new Ideology for Russia. Essentially, Putin called on all Russian patriots to unite in strengthening Russia and creating its new Ideology. A speech that all the big media have carefully silenced, although in this speech, Putin openly said that for the minds and souls of Russians, a war of foreign states is being waged, in terms of the importance of consequences comparable to the global struggle for mineral resources. And that this war on the territory of Russia can be effectively opposed only by Russian ideology. The fading ideology in the USSR and the Russian Empire, Putin called the reasons for their destruction. Without naming the United States by name, Putin bluntly said that certain forces in Russia are conducting "well-orchestrated propaganda attacks." A cut of the most important statements of Putin is offered, with comments.

Let’s say that I like the fact that the law on smoking in public places is passed, there’s a fight to give more alcoholism and more sports palaces to be built and young people supported.

        Who are the authors of the Constitution:



        According to Viktor Sheinis, one of the authors of the Constitution of Russia, chief researcher at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the “presidential draft” of the Constitution was created under the auspices of three people, Sergey Sergeyevich Alekseev, Anatoly Alexandrovich Sobchak and Sergey Mikhailovich Shakhray, they were leaders in the process, but in all, more than 800 participants participated in the Constitutional Conference, and various lawyers worked. Sergey Shakhrai distinguishes two main authors of the constitution - himself and Sergey Alekseev. As a result of joint work, a new unified draft of the Constitution of Russia was developed, which was subsequently put forward by the President of Russia for a popular vote (in fact - for a referendum), and became the current Constitution of the Russian Federation as a result of the vote held on December 12 1993.

    You know, I think that the main reason for all our disorder is our desire to make everyone happy. Globally everyone, not being able to make happy people close to us. As the Americans say (I incur anger, but in my opinion they are right in this) - my family is happy, my homeland is happy. We always want and try to do everything on a global scale. We love the expanses of the Motherland and right away we shit left and right, hug birch trees and throw garbage under it, admire the grandeur of rivers and seas and dump waste in them. And our Motherland (including the Soviet) loves us the same way, globally. That is, all at once, but no one individually. In fact, our man has never really felt comfortable and protected at home. Well, the homeland will not send aircraft carriers, planes and tanks to the rescue of individual citizens (well, of course, if this is not the leader). And he won’t recall the diplomats. If not war, famine and devastation, then at least a housing office, water supply and traffic jams.
    As for patriotism, then with all the masses, everything is very individual. If we teach our child to love and respect (and this also needs to be taught, you must agree) our parents, to respect the lives of everyone around him, regardless of nationalities, their work and lifestyle, but without giving an insult to their life principles, to know and understand the history of your state, with all its periods - light and black. That is, we will teach to live in good conscience, then we will do more than all official propaganda combined. For this is our life, our children and our homeland, excuse me for pathos.

    The education of patriotism should be carried out in a comprehensive manner, as before - parents, kindergarten, school, army, etc. But how does the new reform of general education fit into this upbringing, which provides for payment for subjects of general development? Parents will have to work even more so that the child can get what was previously taught in schools without fail. There will be an even greater gap between parents and children. And there will be a stratification between children, which will not contribute to consolidation. The idea of ​​unity is needed, but officials are doing the opposite. Any good undertaking turns into a "company" or a way to snatch a lot of money. And the country's leadership can be advised to start fostering patriotism for a start in the Duma and the Federation Council.

    Last weekend, Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the creation of a public project management department under the Presidential Administration. Reported. that the main goals set for this structure are to conduct quality patriotic education and build a moral and cultural field in Russia
    .
    Well, glory to you, Lord! Finally, our father-king was honored and, in the 13 (!) Year of his stay at the top of the government, he preoccupied himself with the patriotic education of his unreasonable children.
    To educate this, it is necessary to establish another management. But what about? Without a royal decree, no where. Now now boyar Pavel Zenkovich, who
    .... before that was the second person in the management of the president’s domestic policy ...
    eradicate filth and nurture and cherish true parriots. And we will all rejoice!

    I want to ask respected members of the forum; you are not tired of hoping for a king-priest? Didn’t you get bored of admiring his next decree, the result of which would only be the inflation of the bureaucracy? When will we all learn to distinguish PR from real affairs?

    Patriotism does not raise a decree from above. You can talk about love for the Motherland as much as you like, but as long as our entire elite (and the power elite in the first place) holds their capital and educates their children abroad, all these words are nothing more than propaganda.
    Yes, propaganda, especially of high quality, works. Especially on young and not yet beaten by life. But as soon as a person begins to understand that the authorities tell him one thing, and she does the exact opposite, the horns and legs remain from the results of propaganda.
    Not the creation of another "Main Directorate for the management of all departments"
    ... to build a moral and cultural field in Russia.
    but by personal example.

      They said everything correctly! That just ended sadly, unfortunately. "Fire water" ruined, and now Russia, all who are not too lazy to get drunk, stsuki! sad

      So then it is. Only without upbringing and the family itself will no one create. Now a lot of children have grown and are growing without a full-fledged family and family education.
      Programs are needed!

    Of course, you need to start from television, not to show house 2, but to revive normal patriotic films

    I started reading and almost shed a tear. Thank God, I think that Mr. Volodin saw his sight and, spitting on fees, decided to open the eyes of the people. Alas, the tear did not last long. At first, the author stuns the mysterious term "preventive successes", and then smoothly moves on to his usual clichés. Those who disagree (in whole and in particular) with the current government speak exclusively in the language of Ksyusha Sobchak, the authorities are from God, and the establishment of a "body responsible for patriotic education" is equated to the opening of a theater (see the quotes he cites). But I don’t understand if this is a theater of absurdity or comedy. I lean towards the second. For this has already been described by one "white ribbon" Saltykov-Shchedrin, his surname, and the city was called Foolov. I recommend that those who value satire reread, despite the fact that their views are not modern, for the assessment of the wisdom that comes from the authorities is quite modern.

    Patriots. About 20 years ago one could ask any middle school student and above the words of the anthem of the USSR, he would answer without hesitation. Anyone. Now ask the words of the anthem of Russia for a senior pupil, what will he answer?
    During this time, values ​​have changed. Previously, love for the Motherland was propagated, now love for material values. And while the top chews, buys real estate, teaches offspring, invests assets abroad, there can be no talk of any patriotism.

    I do not presume to say anything about Russia, but I will say about Ukraine. The concept of patriotism, under the capitalist-nationalist-thieves leadership - is completely absurd.
    What should I be proud of: terrorists of the Ukrainian rebel military formations, Mazepa, who broke the oath of loyalty to one country and deserted to another, or Jesus, who, as some of our "historians" claim, was the first Ukrainian?
    What should I defend: billions of Renat Leonidovich or Viktor Fedorovich’s gold toilet, Firtash’s oil business, or Poroshenko’s chocolate and other plants? Ukraine, with its government and local princes, resembles a swan, a crab and a pike. There is no leader, unity and perspective.
    My ancestors lived for another life and died for another country. We built the future for all citizens of our country and our descendants!
    They took everything from me: work, housing, health care and social security, they took away everything that my grandfathers and fathers created in this country and what I did when I entered adulthood, they took away the past, present and future. By laws, rules and orders, like a dog to a booth, like a pet, I was tied to the education called Ukraine and which belongs to "the new masters of my life." Those who are now writing new laws would still have to sit according to the old laws.
    And you think that I will protect them, protect and cherish them?! ...
