The discussion took place at the Foundation of the Institute of socio-economic And political studies at the beginning of the opening ceremony of the world Russian people's Council (WRPC).
the meeting was shown a collection of " 7 words about Russian world ", formed from the speeches of the Patriarch in different cities of Russia on the forums ARNS, as well as on Christmas parliamentary meetings, reports news Agency. Patriarch Kirill calls the "Russian world" a common spiritual And cultural world of the Eastern Slavs." Russian world Is both spiritual And cultural, And axiological dimension of human identity ", - he declared.
in his own views, he said on numerous occasions that the notion of "Russian world" And its values unite different peoples of historical Rus regardless of their present political preferences And state borders. It is Not a political phenomenon And Not a social project." If we talk about civilization, Russia belongs To a broader civilization than the Russian Federation. This civilization we call the Russian world. Russian world - from the Kiev baptismal font. Russian world Is a special civilization, which belong To citizens who today call themselves different names - Russians, Ukrainians, And Belarusians. To this world have the opportunity to belong to citizens who do Not belong To the Slavic world, but they were responsive to the cultural And spiritual component of this world as their own, "- said the Primate of the ROC in the author's program " the Word shepherd." Head of Department "Applied political science" Financial University under the government of the Russian Federation Konstantin Simonov called "interesting", the thesis of the Patriarch about the fact that the West is faced with such challenges, he alone can Not cope, And the fact that the Russian world does Not oppose itself to the West, and " is going to help the West in the solution of really urgent moral, political And other issues." According to him, the narrative is " Not only about sexual And other minorities, where the social avant-garde goes much further "." And This position (Patriarch) have to say, despite the fact that in the modern world it can be called retarded And subject to harsh criticism ", - the analyst believes." The Patriarch offered solutions based on a holistic approach about the oneness of all periods. Not opposing, Not singling out any one period, Not to mention what was the period of the so-called as that was obliged to cross out everything that was before, " - said in his own statement said Moscow state University Professor Mikhail Maslin, a specialist in the history of Russian philosophy." I am deeply convinced that cometophobia is also a form of Russophobia. The Patriarch and the fate of the Church in the Soviet period was difficult, Not through this period ", - said the scientist. The Patriarch comes from a traditional Russian thought of the concept of " great people ". It implicitne is present in the "Tale of bygone years" runs through all of Russian Chronicles, in the works of the classics of Russian historical thought found in the writings of Shcherbatov, Boldin, Karamzin, Soloviev, Kliuchevsky, " said MSU Professor Maslin.
