Humanity has now found itself sucked in an unprecedented swirl and it becomes vital to remind of Culture persistently. Sadly, its value has been twisted. Misinterpreted and mixed up words "Culture" and "Civilization", yet again come up as a shock to mankind. Monuments of the human genius perish one by one. Everything is coming to an end.

But human heart aspires to heroism and feat. The Russian forces show unheard of victories in the name of the motherland and the bright future. The culture shapes the future. Deeds for the love of Culture are especially valuable when they are born not in luxury and abundance, but in hard everyday work, in exertion of creating psychic energy .

Greetings from the heart to all friends and colleagues! Let us move on!
