Russian State Patriotism -The Future is Dark

The Expert Council on Patriotic Education was established on 13 April 2022 to improve the instruments of patriotic education of citizens of the Russian Federation, identify best practices in the field of patriotic education of children and youth, as well as organize cooperation with public associations that implement measures in the field of patriotic education of children and youth. It was made up of more than 40 representatives of the federal executive authorities and their subordinate organizations, and of voluntary organizations in the field of children's and young people's patriotic upbringing.

The profiles of most Experts reveal a lot of what Russia will look like in the next few decades and what Russian society is preparing for. It all begins and ends with the military and the various aspects of militarized education. Starting with Memory and History, which is completely Nationalized and Gravitated on the Great Victory in WWII. Various military organizations are represented, from the Youth Para Military to the Veteran Military. Volunteer organizations are also present, but volunteerism is reduced to the surrender of the individual to the service of the state.

Valery Anatolyevich BURKOV

Hero of the Soviet Union, monk, member of the Stavropigial Monastery of St. Petrovsky, Head of the Heroes of the Fatherland Foundation

A huge amount of attention is given to Monuments and Museums around which to gravitate local patriotic organisations, forming sub myths under the main heroic myth.

The image of Valery Burkov is extremely interesting. Knowing all the emphasis that Russia makes on Orthodoxy as the main pillar of Patriotism, the former military, Hero of the Soviet Union, Advisor to the President, is the only Orthodox in the Council who will shape the next few generations in Russia.
