Putin spoke about the secret to the success of Russian civilization

Russian leader Vladimir Putin in an interview with the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin "of the channel" Russia 1 "spoke about the secret to the success of Russian civilization. The video was recorded back in December 2019, but it was first shown just now.

The head of state emphasized that in order to preserve Russian civilization, emphasis should be placed on the development of new (high) of technologies.

Russia is not just a country, it is truly a separate civilization: it is a multinational country with a large number of traditions, cultures, religions. If we want to preserve civilization, we, of course, must focus on high technologies and their future development.

said the president.

Putin noted that such technologies are already changing the world. Therefore, the basis on which the country should develop should be artificial intelligence, unmanned vehicles, genetics, medicine and education. This is necessary to secure the future of Russian civilization.

We need to look carefully at what is being done in other countries of the world. Look at their achievements, but never forget that we have a very good base of our own. I have already spoken about this. This fact is already absolutely obvious. We would never have modern types of weapons. High tech species. Which so far, in any case, does not exist in any country in the world. How could we do this if we did not have fundamental science, neither scientific schools, nor engineering personnel. That would be absolutely impossible. But we did this, relying on everything that I just said. Now we need not only to transform these achievements into civilian spheres. But we also need to build on the achievements made by previous generations.

- Putin added.

In his opinion, Russia should use its competitive advantages in order to move on.

    Russia is not just a country, it is truly a separate civilization.

    Apparently, he learned from Trump! He also often speaks loudly.
    If you look at the wording “Civilization” on Wiki, it turns out that “Russia as a Separate Civilization” does not exist and cannot exist. Country - yes, Civilization - no. Sorry !!!
    See for yourself:


    There are 4 formulations of Civilizations, and not under what Russia, as a country, does not fall. Maybe Putin meant the extra chromosome (or lack thereof) among Russians? I do not know...
    Russians (or Russians) will understand this easier, I hope.
    But one can already be proud now - they began as Mayans (or Incas) ...
    Yes, I almost forgot!
    Adam Ferguson, who meant the Development Stage of Humanity by this term, could not have imagined that Russia is Civilization, and NOT-Russia is non-civilization. But Putin is a storyteller, not a philosopher, he, Putin, knows better how and who belongs to Humanity, and who does not ...

    To Rosja nie należy do cywilizacji słowiańskiej? Dziwne. Przypomina mi się Pan Xi, który powiedział o swoim narodzie coś w rodzaju (przytaczam z pamięci): "nie jesteśmy głupią cywilizacją". Kto tak mówi o sobie ??

    Do you truly believe Wikipedia?
    I do not completely agree with Putin’s statement, but Vicki’s definition is not true either. At the moment, there are several civilizations on Earth. Chinese, Anglo-Saxon, Muslim. Definitions are different and can be interpreted in their own way.
    Russian Civilization exists, but I would not talk about its success. I would say that WASP has become the most successful.
    To the Polish comrade. It is possible to bring the definition to Slavic as well, but the human community now has such a parameter as religion. Catholic countries fall under another civilization. You can be attributed to the Western European. The gene set has nothing to do with it. Mentality, religion, worldview matter.
    Russian civilization has long been following in the footsteps of Western Europe. So it’s definitely not necessary to talk about successes.
    If we begin to strictly define Civilization, there will be many points of view.

      Podaję wikipedię, choć wiem, że często kłamie, jednak czy cywilizacja słowiańska nie istnieje? Moim zdaniem istnieje, znam nawet jedną opinię pewnego Turka, który stwierdził "w Europie są ludzie zachodu, są Słowianie i jesteśmy my". W krajach katolickich są także ateiści - podobnie jak iw Rosji i innych krajach niekatolickich. Słowianie nie należą w istocie do kręgu cywilizacji zachodniej - ponieważ kraje zachodnie walczą ze Słowianami tj. nie postrzegają nas jako "swoich". google translator:

      I give Wikipedia, although I know that he often lies, but does Slavic civilization not exist? In my opinion, there is, I even know one opinion of a Turk who said: "There are Westerners in Europe, there are Slavs, and we are we." There are also atheists in Catholic countries, as in Russia and other non-Catholic countries. In fact, the Slavs do not belong to the circle of Western civilization - because Western countries are fighting against the Slavs, that is, they do not perceive us as “their own”.

        If you take the trouble to read the ENTIRE article on Wikipedia, you will see at the end a criticism of the term "Civilization".
        I can give a quote from this article:

        common geopolitical conditions, primordial linguistic kinship, unity or closeness of the economic and political system, culture (including religion) and mentality.

        What is common here in "Slavic civilization"? There is a Russian civilization and there is a Western European one. Poles belong to the Western European civilization. In this case, sadly for you - on the sidelines. If you think that Western countries are fighting the Slavs, then I personally see how Poland is fighting Russia. Paradox? No. Just after the adoption of Catholicism, Poland moved to the Western camp.

          Moim zdanie istnieje coś takiego jak "cywilizacja śmierci" - ukryta władza, która postępując liniowo - od Egiptu do USA - stopniowo podbija napotkane krainy, podstępnie niezauważalnie niszczy ich kulturę i pamięć zamieniając po kilkuset latach w poddane sobie gromady, których z nową mentalnością używa do dalszych podbojów. Lachia - Lechia została podzielona na mniejsze części, by łatwiej ją pożreć. Germanie mówili po słowiańsku, Prusowie zostali zamienieni w Prusaków, Lachy z centrum w Po-Lachów (Polaków), Lachy ze skraja Lachii - w Ukraińców, a teraz Polacy zamieniani są w Europe kierjanow Rosom i ...

          In my opinion, there is such a thing as a “civilization of death” - a hidden force that, linearly, from Egypt to the USA, gradually conquers the discovered lands, cunningly imperceptibly destroys their culture and memory, turning after several hundred years into subordinate clusters that it uses with a new mentality for further conquest. Lachia - Lechia has been split into smaller parts to make it easier to devour. The Germans spoke Slavic, the Prussians were turned into Prussians, Lahi from the center in Po Lahov (Poles), Lahi from the edge of Lahia into Ukrainians, and now the Poles are turning into Europeans and directed against Russians ...

      I don't know, maybe it just caught my eye. But Mr Putin has gracefully adapted the name of Russian civilization to a more desirable and "politically correct" one - "Russian civilization." What can be the secret of success if it has not grown during its existence, but rather shrunk. After all, according to legend, it began somewhere from the Buyan Island, and the USSR was very close to its ancient borders, but it was sold.

    Of course, not the whole circle of "basic foundations of growth" of our common multinational Russian Civilization in two minutes outlined the incumbent President of Russia, only part of the important named. yes

    Even if we take that with the development of the same, now "fashionable", "artificial intelligence", one cannot do without an in-depth applied study of psychology and comprehension of the secrets of the brain (and not only mammals), consciousness and subconsciousness, I would be in the first place, before All these (in fact - still secondary, IMHO), listed to the journalist, "basic foundations", would put Comprehensive Development (not only "education" !!!) Thinking The Man of Russian Civilization and its Well-Being!

    Indeed, any Civilization, setting its goals, prosperity, development and sunset, depend, first of all, on health, development and prosperity, synergetic productivity, creative direction and quality of thinking of as many people as possible - the Main Civilization Basis!

    IMHO - Our Soviet Union collapsed precisely because of the defeat in the battle for the Consciousness of People, because of the emasculation, from above and on the ground, ideas laid down in the basis of our Soviet society (Soviet civilization), the immense growth of unprincipled formalism and, ultimately, profanation "the moral code of the builder of communism", a disregard for the Soviet People, their Aspirations and their Needs for the sake of irrational - the promotion of "world peace" in a mega-cost unrestrained "arms race" and a mega-loss hyper wide "unconditional support for revolutionary movements" in "developing countries", and even separate, God-forgotten, tribes in any corner of the planet, if the local prince (does anyone remember the Khrushchev Hero of the Soviet Union Akhmed Ben-Bella, for what such merits he or from Hitler, the mega-problematic Egyptian "Fuhrer" Gamal Abdel Nasser, opportunistically received this our honorary title, which was not even given to all our domestic, who rightly deserved it, to real Heroes, and from our veterans who emigrated abroad, their military awards were even humiliatingly taken away of a much lower rank than the GSS, completely not caring about the image of the USSR "at the long-playing grassroots level", among the relatives and descendants of these veteran warriors of ours ?!) opportunistically declared his allegedly "communist orientation"!

    What is the use of our "development of science" and "high achievements of Soviet civilization", which took the labor of entire generations, if they later, often - along with the carriers of breakthrough ideas, unique knowledge, military secrets and secrets, the gift went to Western civilization and that by them He uses it with might and main - it was so after 1917, it was so after 1991 and it will be so in 202? After the "Putin era" (even if with such "effective managers" as Rogozins, Chubais and others, it will be possible to incredibly develop successes in the areas of science and technology, health care and education named by Vladimir Putin - in my opinion, degrading right before our eyes ?!), if you do not engage in the Unifying Inspirational Ideology, the comprehensive Arrangement of Society (after all, there is an elementary depopulation of the Russian population ?!) and the Struggle for the Minds of People is the Foundation !!!

    I am no longer surprised that, in Zinoviev's fashion, "shooting at Soviet power, but the press secretaries of the Russian Foreign Ministry who find themselves in Russia, for whom Hitler is supposedly better than Stalin, and other television journalists who suggest erecting monuments to Hitler's accomplices, cult-ministerial" memorial plates "to Mannerheim, are anti-Soviet -Russophobic kinopaskvilam, filmed at public expense, and other "antics" of Russian "elitaries" - these are all putrid consequences of the Washington "unprincipled bookmark" under the Foundations of Unity, Development and Power of the Russian Civilization!

    No attractive and inspiring, for most Russian citizens (and not only for them - compare international appeal the ideas of a communist society, which helped to rise from the devastation and become the industrial giant of Soviet Russia - the USSR, and to survive - to win a brutal war, quickly recover from a grandiose war devastation and win the space race with the prosperous and mega-enriched USA in the war, who, moreover, designers of rocket technology and all the achievements of the most advanced at that time, Hitler's rocket technology!) of the State Ideology, clear and understandable Goals and Objectives of the Society - there is discord, stratification and "boiling under the hood", which the enemies of the Russian Civilization rejoice and will certainly take advantage of!
    And it's not worth all the advanced weapons and developments, if the foundations of society are rotten or "sewn up like a quick nouveau riche thread" ... the sad experience of our hyper-armed and seemingly mighty Soviet Union showed this well (for a beaten two unbeaten ones are given if he did correct conclusions!)!

    The Russian "elite" who is personified by Vladimir Putin would ponder this! Unless, of course, he really wants to build a Strong "Russian Civilization" and "ensure its future" in any long term ?! In principle, I’m only for! wink
    There must be a correct approach - in any business, one should correctly determine what to grab on, what to concentrate on, first of all, so that everything works out as intended, and not "as always" !!!

      To mix scientific, military and other developments with CIVILIZATION is simply the height of illiteracy. In relation to civilization, as a way of organizing and sociocultural concept, even the form of government, the system are secondary features.
      You can play with words, but the essence does not change. Civilization, as a way of organizing society, is not artificial intelligence or military development. It is related to the world, people and nature.

          I am not going to criticize the president. He said how he understood. What he listed can be attributed to the goals of the state. But for me, the situation is much more complicated and tragic. For the survival of Russian civilization, decisive measures are needed. Time is running out. There are invariable unshakable laws of development of society and the state. Lack of initiative is already a sign of weakness. In the absence of initiative, loss is inevitable. No modern developments will help.
          To understand this, the lord (I cannot tell my comrade) the president should read the rules of the game of chess. So far, Russia has been acting "reactively", that is, it simply reacts to challenges. Like a frog in a famous experiment. They gave a current - the foot twitched.

          At present, in Russia there is no ideology at the official level. At the informal, the president himself is a supporter of liberals. Or he himself is a liberal. It cannot lead to anything good.

        It is in that paradigm that you wrote about, and you quoted. wink
        And do not be captive to stereotypes - to approach the development of such an Idea of ​​Development creatively, based on your own (and not brought from outside!) Realities!
        There is no need to stuff people's brains with a beautiful "sonorous phrase" (like the one already used by the usurpers of power - difficult to imagine and too vague, "theoretical", supposedly "the future building of communism"), which then does not stand the test of practice and time, and does not at all correlate with the "voluntarist appointed "terms. request
        And the Soviet Civilization - yes, it existed, albeit for a very short time - of course, a "historically ridiculous" term, I agree, but, nevertheless, it planted the shoots of the Future in the hearts and thoughts of people!
        Thanks to her, the whole world has changed a little for the better! yes

        But, outside of our pleasant theoretical "projecting" and even the appearance of a creative discussion, I think that there will be no inclinations for progressive changes, after all, the Russian neo-bourgeois "elite" is quite satisfied with its current position inside the country and yours (like our "Ukraine") the nouveau riche are only striving (at least in a carcass, at least in a scarecrow) to occupy any status "six" in the Western establishment, which is why the question of Washington sanctions "annoys them" so personally ??! winked
        And this speech of the Russian President, it seems, is from the same "duty" series of "messages to the people of positive messages" - like "My business is to crow, but at least don't dawn there!" ??!
        It is unfortunate, of course, because one could indeed generate (there is nothing particularly complicated and impracticable in this!) The rise of Russian Civilization, and there of the whole of Humanity, to comprehensively and fully master our planet, finally to know the noosphere and rush to the stars, to open spaces of the Universe ... but not with the attitude towards the People as it is today, not with that approach, alas !!!

                In order not to be unfounded. Quote from an ardent Westerner, a supporter of the rapprochement between Russia and the West. All books of which are riddled with one thought - Russia's separation from the West - is a great tragedy.

                in relations between East and West, what was previously hidden by economic contradictions and (since 1917) an ideological debate was revealed, namely: that the West is a unique region and a unique civilization, for which it is not enough to name the Secretary General as president, insert a phrase about separation in the Constitution authorities and declare human and civil rights. The experience of the 90s is brighter, perhaps than the experience of confrontation, showed that Russia and the West live in different civilization fieldseducated primarily by various historical experiences. Being cut off from the West by two centuries of Mongol captivity, the subsequent two centuries of self-isolation, without undergoing the three most important revolutions of the West, renaissance, reformation and enlightenment, Russia, being in the grip of its religion, history and cruel historical experience, created own way of life, own vision of the world, own civilization. Tsar Peter built the absorption mechanisms of the Western experience, but two centuries of the Romanov experiment in communication with the West gave very mixed results. On the one hand, the recognized flourishing of culture on Western ideological foundations, on the other almost complete separation of the masses from the processes that captured the West in the XVIII - XX centuries. There are obvious civilizational differences, ignoring which Russia has not led to anything good and will not lead. The 1991 radical democrats declared Russia's Western affiliation, but this was much easier than creating an economic structure and representative Western-style democracy in the vast expanses of Russia. Ignoring the difference between the Russian mentality and the western one was demonstrated in the most striking way in 1991-1995. Key concepts such as compromise and the rule of law are still missing in the minds of Russian society, of which October 1993 is a symbol.

                  Western fiction, detective stories, adventures (not Arabic) are translated - and they have Something of ours. Tchaikovsky and Mozart obey, similar pictures about Christ, the siege of La Rochelle with Smolensk, Leonardo da Vinci brought to Pushkinsky, Ivan the Terrible and some kind of tyranny almost simultaneously tyrannized several wives.
                  And there are no Arab, Negro and Chinese operas, books, paintings in museums .... And a little movie.

                  And Putin’s paths in Surkov’s articles a year ago ... have already been forgotten about them. Liberals are ....

                    Both Chinese and Indian literature are being translated. Arab culture, mathematics, medicine. No need to mix the achievements of all mankind and civilizational principles.
                    I have already mentioned. I do not distinguish between works that I like and dislike. Read it all. And the literature that is personally unpleasant for me, I also try to read.
                    People often believe that their thoughts are perceived by all. This is not true. Do not confuse a thin layer of intelligentsia (according to Lenin ... I don’t want to bring it) and the bulk of the people.

                    In the economic sphere, Russia by 1914 became a powerful industrial power. Its agriculture, although backward in production methods, took several steps forward and strengthened Russia's export position. In the cultural field there was no high-level gap between Russia and the West - Russian classics were pan-European classics. Russia could proudly compare itself in any field of creative spirit - its thinkers, scientists and representatives of creative professions were the vanguard and glory of Europe. But when the focus shifts from the elite to the total mass of the population, here Russia does not stand comparison with the leading countries of the West. However, instead of turning energy to narrow the gap between educated circles and the uneducated mass of the population, the government chose to protect estate and other privileges.

                    How do you like the quote of S.M.Soloviev?

                    “The departure of the Russian nation to the far north-east was an important circumstance, because it allowed the Russian state to become stronger away from Western influence. We see that those Slavic nations that prematurely came into contact with the West, with their strong civilization and their Roman heritage, fell into decay, lost their independence and some of them even their national characteristics ”

                      Here other questions are raised.
                      High technologies that seem to exist, but they seem to be absent.
                      And is Russia a civilization separate from all?

                      So you go to flickr.com_photos_amber-tree, look at EuropeanEy images and see ... damn it, the same thing about us. With its own specifics ...

                        I already wrote my opinion. High technology, the political system, and the form of government toward civilization have a subordinate position. Mentality, attitude to life, morality, religion ...
                        In this regard, Russia is a separate Civilization. Different from Western European. Which is actually more correct to call WASP. In any case, I like this term more.

                        Then it can be considered a separate civilization of many others ... Cossacks, Caucasians, Siberians, Yakuts, Kazakhs .. and others.
                        "Mentality, attitude to life, morality, religion", etc. they are not like that ...

                        Question. Can one attribute the Orthodox-Russian and the Muslim Tatar to one civilization? They live in one country, obey the same laws, pay the same taxes (ideally). They even fought alongside shoulder to shoulder. But do they relate to one Civilization?
                        There are gradations, so to speak, a different level. Quantity still goes into quality. Can a small nation create its own Civilization? Civilization is the highest stage of sociocultural relations (according to Pitirim Sorokin). One tribe in a small territory will not be able to create Civilization. Will be able to create his own state or tribal union.
                        There are not many Civilizations in the world. Here they correctly pointed to ideology. Civilization cannot be created without a clear idea. There must be a common goal for a Muslim, Hindu or Orthodox. There must be a single language (as in Game of Thrones they spoke a "common language").

                        Strictly speaking, the term Civilization is criticized and questioned. But I still tend to think that there are currently several Civilizations on the Globe. As R. Kipling wrote -

                        West is West, East is East and they will never meet.

                        I do not call. But size in itself is not a sign of Civilization. We are trying to clarify the issue over which spears were broken by people smarter than us. I can also make statements that run counter to my own words. Not because I'm confused, but because there are a lot of terms and definitions.
                        I can give you an example from my own life. In the 90s he got into an international team. And the conversation turned to nationalities. The captain (Norwegian) asked me "What language do you dream in?" I answered "in Russian". The answer is "So you are Russian." This is, of course, exaggerated. But it makes sense.
                        Tell me, is there such a thing as Jewish Civilization "? I have not heard of this. Of course, they can answer me that the Jews do not bother with this. But this is not the answer. They have a thousand-year history, their own religion, their own state, their own language. But their attitudes are not accepted by the majority of the world's population. Why and why - these are questions for historians. Something is missing. Maybe ideology? Jews at all times easily entered any society. They did not mix, but adopted its laws. In Europe, Russia, America, maybe that's good, but maybe not.
                        Pitirim Sorokin denied the term Civilization and replaced it with the words "higher sociocultural relations". But he called his book "Man. Civilization. Society".

                        Here! There are few Jews - doubts already. That is a big, big community. 150 million Russians are not enough. So much in some Nigeria or Japan.

                        But under 1 billion white Europeans - it’s already normal.

                        A lot. I said there are several definitions. Say 50 million Britons controlled almost a billion people and half the globe. 150 million Russians control the heart of the Earth - Heartland (according to Mackinder). And if you read the basics of geopolitics, you can understand what Russian Civilization is like.
                        Civilization is probably a sociological concept (we can agree with Sorokin). Although I'm not sure. But geopolitics is more important at this stage.

                        This is all figs .... debatable, IMHO.
                        At first the Italians controlled it. Then the Netherlands. Then the Spaniards. Then the British. Now is the USA. Assign each by Civilization?
                        + Germans, + France, + Balkans, etc.

                        The heart of the earth, the Center of Africa, the Land of the rising sun, 7 kingdoms, the Great Silk Road ...... Doesn’t converge either, each according to Civilization?

                        All of whom you have listed belong to Western civilization. So there was no thought to separate them from me. This is all one Civilization. Its rise began in the 14-15 centuries. And still it is she who controls the world. And Luther laid the foundation for her. And so I call it Protestant - White Anglo Saxon Protestant.
                        The heart of the earth belongs to geopolitics. Who controls HeartLand controls Eurasia. Without control of HeartLandom, there is no control of the world. But this is not sociology, but geopolitics.
                        Returning to civilizational principles. Protestantism is incompatible with Orthodoxy. Cyrillic is different from Latin. The atomization of the people of Europe is contrary to the communal way of Russia. The climate of Western Europe is incompatible with the climate of continental Eurasia. Here the division of L. Gumilyov is appropriate. He drew the border between the West and Russia along the zero isotherm of January.
                        The differences are much greater than coincidences. Call it Civilization or Social Relations - it doesn't matter. The essence does not change. These are different attitudes towards people, God and society.

        Russian Civilization is different from European. This is what I am talking about here. Mentality, religion, ... there are too many differences.

        I will assume that most of these differences are myths.
        How does the mentality of a representative of Russian civilization differ from the western? It is only possible without lengthy quotes by Slavophiles or Westerners, and in what this is specifically expressed, what can be felt, so to speak. For example, in the same situation, the Russian will do so, and the European will do otherwise, and this can be measured by statistical methods.
        I just heard a couple of times that the mentality, let’s say, is not a scientific term.
        Regarding religion, Russian society is one of the most secular in the world, the Chinese can only argue with us. But 100 years ago, everything was different, is it the same civilization?

          ... common geopolitical conditions, primordial linguistic kinship, unity or closeness of the economic and political system, culture (including religion) and mentality.

              Our dispute cannot be resolved. You do not see the difference; often you mix economy and worldview. These are different things. If the whole world uses a wheel, this does not mean that it is one.

                But you did not even try to explain and argue your position.
                In my opinion, an elementary question was asked, if the "mentality" is different for us and the Europeans, then this should somehow manifest itself in behavior, in reactions to events. I have been to Europe and nothing comes to my mind at all, what makes us different.
                What is the difference in worldview?
