MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev urged all Russians to spend vacations in the country, not abroad.
“Only recently have we realised that we live in a big country, and although it is not set up yet properly, it is very beautiful, and this must be used 100 percent,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his supporters on Saturday, October 15.
As an example, he referred to the Americans who spend their vacations mainly at home. “When we can do like they, we will become good citizens of our state,” he said.
The president urged his supporters to set an example. “I myself do not travel abroad for vacations, but you could do the same. Let’s spend our vacations at home,” he said.
President Dmitry Medvedev called for further calm and systematic work even though it may take years to understand the purpose of some of the actions.
“When you hold this office, you come under a torrent of emotions, and if they run you down or on the contrary make you feel tough, that’s dangerous,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his supporters on Saturday, October 15.
“One must bear this responsibility calmly, without dashing back and forth, without experiencing complexes and without getting worked up, and then everything turn out well,” the president said.
“What is important is what is left after our work, even though it may take three years or more to understand it,” he said.
“We are in the mainstream and we find our own niche in it for development,” Medvedev said.
