The Ministry of Culture proposes to approve a list of “traditional spiritual and moral values” subject to state protection by presidential decree. There "patriotism", "citizenship", "service to the Fatherland", "high moral ideals", "priority of the spiritual over the material" and so on. All this is now being offered by the authorities for public discussion.
This, without exaggeration, epoch-making document finally defines the so-called “traditional values” — “these are the moral guidelines that form the worldview of Russian citizens, transmitted from generation to generation, ensuring civil unity, underlying Russian civilizational identity and a single cultural space of the country that have found their unique original manifestation in the spiritual, historical and cultural development of the multinational people of Russia. Traditional values include: life, dignity, human rights and freedoms, patriotism, citizenship, service to the Fatherland and responsibility for its destiny, high moral ideals, a strong family, creative work, the priority of the spiritual over the material, humanism, mercy, justice, collectivism, mutual assistance and mutual respect, historical memory and continuity of generations, the unity of the peoples of Russia.
The historian and public figure Vera Afanasyeva remarks on this subject:
“I remember, I remember how we wrote in personal comprehensive plans at work - to watch the program “Time” every day. And then we received a salary with colorful pillowcases. While you were sleeping, the state ideology arrived in time. The Ministry of Culture issued a register of traditional Russian values and “alien ideas.” If anything, this is a draft Presidential Decree.
Since it's a masterpiece, and you can't throw out the words, take the trouble to read it.

“Really, just some kind of holiday? - Afanasyev comments on this document. - Birches with bast shoes and balalaikas are packed there, inside.
And how do you - "the denial of the ideals of procreation"?
Yes, it looks like either a farce, or a resolution on a madhouse, adopted at a general meeting of psychics.
Yes, extremely false and hypocritical. And while they wrote, they drank, they smoked, and that's all.
Yes, another attempt to please, to get into the stream, and at the same time - to cut the loot.
But plans to comply with traditional values and combat alien ideas will have to be written. And who does not want to - for re-education, well, if at BAM.
Don't believe? Let's talk about this in two years.
By the way, Gogol and Tchaikovsky are no longer valuable to us. One of the children did not have, still need to check why. The second - you know.
So we delete. And Bulgakov too.
We will study Putin's works on political information.
And yes - it would be very funny if it were not so sad.
Political scientist Abbas Gallyamov is sure that the Russian authorities are “suffering from nonsense”:
“Probably, at the same time, the Kremlin is happily rubbing their hands: here, they say, how famously we manage the agenda.
In fact, the only consequence of discussing this initiative will be the feeling that the authorities in the country suffer from nonsense. After all, it is obvious that they themselves do not possess any of the listed qualities, which means they are trying to discuss some kind of fiction: “Something they themselves invented and now they want people to take this nonsense seriously. Yep, right now!"
And people will get angry about the “priority of the spiritual over the material”. “It’s easy for them to talk there - with their income,” the average Russian will say, “and you try to live on our beggarly salary.”
In general, the main enemy of Russia is the Maslow pyramid. It assumes that the needs of a higher order are actualized as the lower ones are satisfied. Before you talk to a person about high things, you need to feed him. The Russian authorities fail to feed the people, but instead they climb with the priority of the spiritual over the material.
“While the fat one dries, the thin one will die” - this is the original Russian truth of life..."
By the way, journalist Vasily Alenin cites interesting data on this subject:
“But the Russians do not agree with the conclusions of Lyubimova. Of the 10 highest-grossing films of 2021, 8 are in the United States or the United States + other countries, and only 2 are in the Russian Federation, as in 2018. In 2019 - 1. In the most successful 2020, as many as 4!
