Greetings on opening of military patriotic camp Soldiers of the Fatherland. Borodino 2018

June 11, 2018

Vladimir Putin has sent his greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the military patriotic camp Soldiers of the Fatherland. Borodino 2018, which unites members of patriotic clubs, cadets and children of servicemen from many regions of Russia.

The message reads, in part:

“Your camp is located on the legendary Borodino Field, steeped in military glory. And this is why its eventful programme includes a study of Russia’s military history, as well as historical reenactments of the battles of 1812 and 1941, visits to museums and exhibitions, and meetings with famous people. And you will have time for sports and recreation, of course.

I am convinced that such large-scale patriotic initiatives, and your project is definitely in this category, are very much needed today. They contribute to the personal development of children, and provide young men and women with an upbringing based on high values of civic consciousness, love for the Fatherland, and respect for its heroes.”
