Review of an inopressa. The choice of names for the Russian airports surprised the western society


To Russians suggested to choose the famous compatriots that 47 airports of the country within the competition "Great Names of Russia" received new names. What did vote end with? Photo: Donat of Sorokin/TASS Russians seldom have an opportunity to choose the pantheon: heroes historically came "from above" in the conditions of promotion. However recently to citizens suggested to choose names of dear compatriots for 47 airports of the country, the observer of Bloomberg Leonid Bershidsky notices. The Russian citizens in general are apolitical and also are indifferent to culture. The idea of the competition "Great Names of Russia" belongs to the metropolitan Tikhon who is called the confessor of the president Vladimir Putin. The offer was approved by the Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky. According to the author, the head of Ministry of Culture supported Putin's idea to create new national ideology for modern Russia. The name of Joseph Stalin was probably previously struck off lists for vote. "When we began this project, there was a lot of talk on Stalin: here now Stalin will get out what we will do then? Stalin never got out" — the secretary of Public chamber of Russia Valery Fadeyev said. It should be noted that in 2008 Stalin was included into the three of national heroes, having received 5.4 million votes. Not aggressive preferences voting became the main result. The general Dmitry Karbyshev tortured to death by Nazis in 1945 won a victory in Omsk, but it is rather as the martyr, than the war hero. Except it, the airports are called in honor of two more military leaders. For the rest, Russians called tsars, scientists, pilots and astronauts. Poets and writers make the biggest group of winners. The greatest sympathies were got by Mikhail Lermontov (the airport of Mineralnye Vody) and Alexander Pushkin (Moscow Sheremetyevo). Such choice shows healthy peaceful moods of the Russian citizens, reflecting decrease in trust of citizens to promotion of the state television, concludes the edition. *** the western media continue to comment on the ultimatum of Washington addressed to Moscow concerning withdrawal from the treaty of the INF Treaty, but now taking into account response of Russia. Germany and France are concerned about consequences of this decision for the European safety, the Parisian La Croix notices. Despite it, they held the American charges, having found them reasonable. At the same time the French Minister of Defence, expecting reaction of Moscow, urged to reflect on the new strategy of safety already now. The decision of Russia to create the new rockets pursues two aims, believes the edition. To break away the USA from Europe and to divide society on the issue of probable deployment of new American rockets in the European territory. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
