On Friday, November 11, the Governor of the Samara Region Dmitry Azarov held a meeting of the Commission of the State Council of Russia in the direction of “Culture”. In this, preservation of cultural heritage and historical memory was discussed.
In all areas, identification of objects of cultural and historical value is underway. Towns and villages get the status of historical settlements. Governor Dmitry Azarov recalled the importance of preserving historical memory.
“Knowing one’s origin, one’s past and becoming a true patriot connects a person with the past and the future, creates a sense of responsibility towards society, encourages one to protect the interests of one’s country,” said the head of the Samara region.
The importance of this direction is confirmed by the decree of the President, who considers patriotism, citizenship, historical memory, continuity from generation to generation as traditional Russian spiritual and moral values.
Samara Region Governor Dmitry Azarov invited participants to the conference to consider the importance of preserving cultural heritage, as well as tools to resist attempts to falsify history. This is especially important now, when, among other things, monuments dedicated to the heroes of the Great Patriotic War are being destroyed in many pro-Western countries.
— The ideologies of the Western world are erasing the memory of Russia’s contribution to world history, the history and culture of this or that state. Unfortunately, today vandalism is becoming a hallmark of European states that have destroyed countless monuments to Soviet soldiers who fought against fascism and military leaders. This is our history, our pride, our memory. And we will never agree to the barbaric practices of European states,” said the head of the Samara region.
This does not happen in Russia, according to Governor Dmitry Azarov, it is our common duty to preserve monuments on Russian soil, to preserve history. Volunteers and community members actively help in this work. Many projects like the Tom Sawyer Fest started in Samara are already being implemented in 77 towns and villages. Activists are involved in preserving the literary historical heritage. Their efforts have already restored more than 130 houses in Russia.
