I have a friend in our yard. His name is Svyatyk. And completely - Svyatoslav. Parents, not from their distant minds, supply the fifth-grader-son with various pistols that shoot bullets. The boy happily chases the girls around the yard and shoots wherever he gets from his weapons. Today I saw in him a real dummy of a Finnish knife, even from afar confused with the present. I try to disarm the sanctuary in the literal and figurative sense of the word, but the boy sometimes appears with his horror stories.
Then one day I asked him a question: “And could you, Svyatyk, lie down with a grenade under a tank or make this grenade, as your peers did during the war?”. This question was so unexpected for him that he thought. I thought too. And I remembered that I have good friends who put the true path of many such abandoned children and teenagers who are unfortunately motivated by parents who have no idea about the real upbringing of a fighter.
Despite a decent age, sometimes poor health, household chores, each of them generously gives his time, his experience, the heat of his heart to young people, seeing in it the future of Russia.
I again return to my topic about the Rostov club “Patriot”, which has been operating since the end of the 90-s of the last century, and in the new century does not suspend for a moment its work, attracting new allies to its ranks, who are helping to bear the difficult burden of spiritual enlightenment.
A very important condition for the successful work of the club and the fact that it was possible to achieve good results in the patriotic education of young people, in the inner work of the club, is that each member of the club takes his veteran work in the club seriously and responsibly, understanding its importance and relevance in the presently complex, often, spiritless, time.
The poets Pavel Ivanovich Ryumin, Vladimir Alekseevich Petrov and Sergei Ivanovich Kurnosov prepared and released new collections of poems dedicated to this significant date for the celebration of Victory Day.
And in the days of the celebration it is planned to hold numerous meetings with the soldiers of the Rostov garrison.
We can not say that all the activities of the club is carried out on a voluntary basis. Funds received from philanthropists and membership fees go to the publication of books, posters, the purchase of postcards, forms, certificates of honor and letters of thanks.
The “secret” of success in the work of the “Patriot” club on youth education is that teammates carefully prepare for each meeting with schoolchildren, students, young warriors, think over and coordinate with teachers the topics of their performances, trying to keep them relevant, interesting and long-lasting. remained in the memory of listeners. Visual aids also help here: posters, photographs, books, clippings from front-line newspapers.
Members of the organizational and methodical commission of the club prepare in advance methodological developments, reference and information materials, means of visual agitation for performances in front of young people, as well as help equip and replenish school museums and corners of military and labor glory.
In addition, many members of the club - people of great life experience, were participants in many glorious deeds, they have something to tell the younger generation, to tell young people the right way in life.
I will tell only about the three women who did not sit on the bench and discuss what kind of worthless these girls and boys are, that they yell and bully in the yard, but went to schools and lyceums to talk there about themselves and that past life, from which only one thing can be learned - the ability and desire to live and work, despite all obstacles.
Elena V. Inozemtseva was born in 1939 in the Donbas in the family of a mining engineer. During the Great Patriotic War, she lived with her grandmother, a girl worked on a collective farm, in a mine, and looked after the wounded in a military hospital.
After the war in Rostov, she worked at a shoe factory named after Mikoyan. Since 1994, Elena Vasilyevna began to work in the club "Patriot". Together with her husband, a war veteran, a veteran of the helicopter plant, a talented bard who sang author songs and romances Vladimir Petrovich Ivanov, unfortunately, recently passed away, appeared before schoolchildren, students, young warriors. They sang their original songs together. They managed to record several cassettes together, which later began to be performed by other amateur groups, the songs were played on the regional radio. Thanks to the help of the helicopter plant, the book "String" was recently published with poems and songs by Vladimir Ivanov.
And Elena Ivanovna continues to be actively engaged in the patriotic and cultural education of young people, moreover, completely disinterestedly, speaking with poetry of her husband-front-line soldier.
Anna Nikolaevna Pilipko was born in 1923, in the village of Ilinka, Kuschevsky District, Krasnodar Territory. After graduating from school in the first months of the war in the summer and autumn of 1941, they were all gathered together and sent rather far from their home to build defensive lines under the cities of Bataysk and Taganrog. How many she dug anti-tank ditches, how many bitter, especially heavy in 1941 year of the earth, it is impossible to calculate, and it does not matter now. After all, then they were ready to go to the front, but they were not taken because of their minority. Anna helped in the evacuation of our soldiers and officers wounded in battles to the hospital, and at the beginning of 1943, the military registration and enlistment office voluntarily sent the active army to the 27-nd separate bridge railway battalion with a communications assistant. Near Novocherkassk was wounded.
The battalion, in which Anna Pilipenko served, passed through front-line roads, building and rebuilding bridges, tunnels, and railways in the Caucasus, Kuban, Romania, Hungary, Poland, and Germany. Victory Day came for Anna in Berlin. But the war for her in May, 1945, did not end. The battalion was transferred to Manchuria on the Far Eastern Front. Only at the end of 1945, the young signalman returned home to her native Ilyinka. In the 1948 year, arriving in Rostov, she went to work at Selmash, graduated from the evening secondary school, Institute of National Economy, worked in the plant management, in the electrical department, retired from the position of senior engineer in 1979 year, having worked on Rostselmash more than 30 years. After retiring, Anna Nikolaevna immediately joined the active veteran work, engaged in the patriotic and moral education of young people, was elected chairman of the primary veteran organization in Voroshilovsky district of Rostov-on-Don.
Bogatova Larisa Nikolaevna was born in 1926, in the city of Taganrog. She studied at the school in the city of Kamensk. At the beginning of the war, she participated in the preparation of defensive works, in the packaging of incendiary bottles, in harvesting, collecting spikelets. Then my parents were evacuated to the city of Andijan, Uzbek SSR.
A native Rostov at that time was occupied by the Germans.
Occupants loved to go to the local bazaar.
After the liberation of Rostov, she graduated from a statistical technical school, a financial and economic institute, and remained to work here as a senior laboratory assistant at the department of political economy, and taught accounting disciplines. In 1964, she moved to Moscow, where she graduated from the graduate school at the Agricultural Academy estate K.A. Timiryazeva, worked in several Moscow institutes, but the call of the homeland turned out to be stronger and she decided to return to the Don, to Rostov, who was again supportive of Larisa’s fate: she worked in the Food Industry Directorate of the Regional Executive Committee, developed several scientific and methodological recommendations, and was repeatedly encouraged to scientific activities.
After retiring in 1981, Larisa Nikolaevna worked on a voluntary basis in the museum of the Palace of Culture of Railwaymen, in the regional council of war and labor veterans, and was nominated as a deputy to the Rostov Regional Council of People's Deputies.

After the liberation of her native city from the fascist invaders, she returned home. She graduated from the dental school and spent almost 40 years working in the health care field in the Oktyabrskaya rural region and in Rostov in the polyclinic of the Internal Affairs Directorate of the Regional Executive Committee. She was repeatedly rewarded for good work, was elected and for a long time worked as the chairperson of the district committee of the trade union of medical workers.
It is impossible not to say a kind word about Vasily Danilovich Babeshko, a member of the methodical commission of the club, retired colonel Vasily Danilovich Babeshko, who is not only often in schools, actively engaged in military-patriotic education of young people, but also continues to work as a senior researcher at the Aksai military history museum, conducts tours , acquaints visitors with weapons and military equipment, prepares future defenders of the Fatherland for the army service. Many members of the Patriot club took part in these excursions.
The school audience is well aware of the courage lessons of the front-line soldier, former artillery reconnaissance officer, senior retired lieutenant, member of the Writers' Union Don Ivan Kurnosov.
At meetings with young people, he not only talks about the heroic exploits of Soviet soldiers, how difficult the Victory was, but also reads his military and lyrical poems to young people. Many of his books gave the poet to school libraries.
Schoolchildren and teachers of the city also respond positively to the lessons of courage taught by the Patriot club members in educational institutions: these are retired major Boris Petrovich Sobkalov, retired captain Mark Kuprits, senior medical service lieutenant Evgenia Stepanovna Tyukina, former partisan Alexander Grigoryevich Malyuk , retired colonel Vladimir Alekseevich Petrov, former Baltic young fleet Vasily Stefanovich Tkachev and many others.
Good work is different veteran of the war, the captain in retirement, deputy chairman of the club Klavdiya Ivanovna Kuznetsova.

A member of the club took part in the acquisition of exhibits and the restoration of the museum "Young Guard" in school number XXUMX. The natives of the Rostov region were 32 members of the “Young Guard”. This museum, with its unique exhibits, was created in 12 on the initiative of the teaching community and the parents of the dead Young Guards and a few of the survivors.
The grand opening of the museum took place after the repair, and the school principal invited all the members of the Patriot club to a tour. Alexander Pavlovich Stasyuk, the son of Nadezhda Ivanovna Stasyuk, a member of the resistance organization Young Guard, took patronage over the museum from the club.
After a major overhaul of the old premises at school number XXUMX, the Museum of the Second Guards Tatsinsky tank corps was again set up, to which veterans are directly involved.
And on the eve of the Victory Day celebrations over Nazi Germany, on the initiative of members of the Patriot club Nikolai Mikhailovich Kondrashov and Vasily Danilovich Babeshko for two days - 28 and 29 April - an interregional meeting of the Patriot club members with students, teachers and veterans who were formerly held students and teachers of schools №6 and №27 Novoalekseevskogo rural district of the Krasnodar Territory.
This meeting of veterans and youth of Don and Kuban was solemn. In advance, a plan was drawn up for holding meetings at schools, solemn rulers and rallies, concert programs of the Podvory Choir and amateur performances of Kuban schoolchildren.
The most important thing that the envoys of the capital of Don wanted was to meet with young people, talk about front-line soldiers who brought us the Victory, help activate the military-patriotic and moral education of schoolchildren, and strengthen the friendship of Don and Kuban veterans. And I must say: everything planned was fulfilled.
So year after year passes time. And in it the veterans feel not lost, but quite a combat unit, the main task of which they imagine is clear and clear - to be in the ranks of good people and attract other people, small and large, into their ranks. Whether my friend Svyatik will be in this line - time will tell. And I would like, despite the fact that his mother is from Ukraine and occasionally leaves there, for some unknown reason, perverting herself to be angry and ridiculed: bad rumors circulate about her. And the son Svyatyk grows on Russian soil and goes to the Russian school.
