Strengthening our country, looking at that, what is happening in the world, in other countries, I want to tell those, who else is waiting for the gradual fading of Russia: in this case, we are worried about only one thing - how not to catch a cold at your funeral

This practice only discredits such institutions., leads to their decline, aggravates the crisis of the world order
