In Ulyanovsk took II National Youth Forum "Multinational Russia". Round table on the Russian people caused particular concern. The round table was attended by about 25 people. To the surprise of the moderators were mainly representatives of other nations. The round table began with the question: "Why are you here just for this round table?". When dropped my turn to speak, said: "First of all, the Russian people is the state-nation, I do not like when national actors sometimes use the term" titular nation ", but Russian in Russia really have to be such titular nation.
Yakutia Forum presented the deputy head of Public Relations of the Ministry and the municipalities on youth policy and sports Sawa Mikhailov, chairman of the Youth Assembly of Yakutia Nurgun Grigoriev, members of the Youth Parliament in the State Assembly (Il Tumen) of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Irina Atlasova and Paul Varavin.
The forum is open 7 round tables that are touched upon topical issues of international and inter-religious dialogue. The greatest interest was the section on the Russian question. I asked to comment on the Sava Anatolyevich the round table:
"Indeed a roundtable on the Russian people caused particular concern. The round table was attended by about 25 people. To the surprise of the moderators were mainly representatives of other nations. The round table began with the question: "Why are you here just for this round table?". When dropped my turn to speak, said: "First of all, the Russian people is the state-nation, I do not like when national actors sometimes use the term" titular nation ", but Russian in Russia really have to be such titular nation.
We, the people of Russia are more or less identify ourselves, and Russian is hard to do. Especially since there is no column in the passport nationality. The more he can prove that he is a Russian?
Secondly, the Russian people at the time took us up, gave us to develop, rather than following the example of the Americans destroyed the indigenous people. Russian people was not a conqueror, and was the creator who gave other people self-development. Russian people were uniting, Russian was the language of interethnic communication. Now a simple layman is difficult to separate the Russian culture of the Russian culture.
Third, the language of the Russian people is losing its greatness, young people rarely read the Russian classics, Russian works, the Internet is ruining the language. It is in Yakutia one of the first to celebrate the Day of the Russian language. We in the Russian Yakutia in Yakut call "nuuchcha" whose value has many meanings, from "visitor" to "archer". But we still respectfully called Russian "Ubay" which literally translates as "big brother". That is why we, the indigenous peoples of Russia, the Russian people should give the status of "Big Brother."
Need a federal law on the status of the Russian people, which would have painted everything from language to culture, from right to proportional representation in all spheres of Russian life, especially in government. When people ask me who your brothers by blood, language and culture, I would be in Turkic peoples — Kazakhs, Altai, Azeris, Turks, and others. But I do not say to me is the brotherly people of Russian.
We in Yakutia for four centuries live together in peace and good, we will continue to live. I also hurt as the Russian people, when there is oppression of Russian in the Baltics and the Western Ukraine. Outflow of Russian former Soviet republics of the North Caucasus is a destructive tendency, especially just for the residents themselves of these republics. That's why chose this topic.
The round table was attended by representatives of German, Azeri, Udmurt, Abaz, Greek, Ukrainian, and many other ethnic groups. As part of a two-day round table meeting, many spoke of the significance of the Russian people in this or that area, some said that the little Russian in the federal government, some of that Russian so mixed with other nationalities that are sometimes difficult to identify them. Were also opponents of the status of the adoption of the Russian people, who said, "Why? Does not Russia diverse country? '. We do not deny it, said they did not need to compare it with nationalism, the law will make it possible to save the Russian people, as state-building, if the Russian people are going to develop, and the indigenous peoples of Russia will live in peace and harmony.
Finally I want to say that the organizers of the forum knowingly put such a question. Tolerance in the west began to play, and that's just that workers take to the streets of London, Paris and Berlin, and smash all horrible. Many even ridicule, and whether there are any "pure" French. We must not turn into a cosmopolitan society. Nations must maintain their identity, culture and language.
It is no secret that the Russian is getting smaller. Russian people must play a major role in the consolidation of society multinational Russia. Many agreed with the statement that only the fraternal friendship between the Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian will help in the development of our country. And some wonder how members of other nationalities are sick so much for the Russian people. Here the answer is clear, "sick because I love and respect my Yakut people, and the development of our people is very closely linked with the great Russian people."
November 16, the Day of Tolerance Youth Assembly of Yakutia is planning a series of events: a meeting with the students, in this day in the club "Paradox", the very first etnodiskoteka «International day».
