MOSCOW, December 12 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian state policy should be based on the civil responsibility of the Russians for the fate of their homeland, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an annual presidential state-of-the-nation address to the Federal Assembly in the Kremlin on Wednesday.
“Today the construction of civil activities continues,” the Russian president said. “The common people’s responsibility for the homeland is a fundamental principle,” Putin noted. “I see the consolidating base of our policy particularly in patriotism and civil responsibility,” he stated.
The president believes the initial period in the formation of the society already passed. “The work of each of us has its boundaries, its limits,” he said with confidence. Putin noted that the wellbeing cannot be achieved, if the ruins are lying outside the threshold of your house.
“The responsibility for the country is being formed not by slogans and appeals, but when people witness that the state authorities are transparent, accessible and work hard themselves,” the president stated, noting that the state authorities should not turn in a closed caste.
“In the world of the twenty-first century Russia should be a sovereign and influential country, should preserve its national and spiritual identity, should not lose itself as a nation, but be and remain Russia,” he remarked.
“Russia should increase its geopolitical role,” the president stated. This factor concerns not only economy, but also science, culture, diplomacy, and not in the least, military aid. “We should look only forward, only in the future,” Putin underlined.
