MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s State Duma, Sergei Naryshkin recommends to the fellow-Russians to turn to the experience of the Russian revolutions of 1917, the centenary anniversary of which will be marked next year, in order to tap the recipes for consolidation of society and to avert new upheavals.
He writes this in an article titled ‘The Recipes for the Future’ that the Rossiyskaya Gazeta governmental daily has published in its Tuesday issue.
Naryshkin says he decided to make his thoughts on the issue public, as the centenary anniversary of the events, which affected life of the nation in a most radical way - and the lives of his immediate ancestors, too, will be marked next year.
The revolution of February (March) 1917 wiped out the Czarist reign that was incepted back at the times of Kievan Rus led up to the formation of the so-called Provisional Government, which in its turn was kicked out of power by the Bolsheviks and Socialist Revolutionaries in October (November) of the same in what would grow over later into the deepest-going revolution of all times.
"There were two revolutions in succession but they pursued entirely different objectives," Naryshkin writes. "After them the history of our family swerved into a long and labyrinthine stream-way.’
"These events have been described innumerable times - and described so differently that it would certainly pay to clear out once again the results of that century-old pivotal turn of the tide known as ‘history’," Naryshkin indicates.
"In spite of all the obvious difficulties, we must try and draw the main lesson from those years and thus tap recipes for the future, the ones that will bring us closer together rather than produce disunity, will spare us from new upheavals and will bring long-term creative prospects to this country," he says.
