Patriotism begins with love for one’s land, for one’s village, city, region, with love for a small homeland.

Why do we call it a small homeland? Human beings are not only rational but also emotional.  A small homeland is the place where you were born and raised, and for a time lived your whole life.

There you have mountains, rivers, stories and myths about their origin, the names of those left in the memory of the people. The list is very long. All this is important.

A special attitude to the native land, its culture, customs and traditions is the most important feature of patriotism. This is the basis of the cultural and genetic code that makes any nation a nation, and not a collection of individuals.

Over the centuries, our ancestors protected specific places and regions, saving for us millions of square kilometers of fertile land. They saved the future.
