Bishkek, Feb.21, 2018 / Kabar /. Experts from Russia and Kyrgyzstan believe that it is necessary to strengthen patriotic upbringing within the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). This was stated by the participants of the International Forum Military-patriotic upbringing within the framework of interstate cooperation of the CSTO countries as a mechanism to counteract the radicalization of youth.
The participants said that within the conditions of growing informational and cultural challenge and propaganda pressure from the destructive forces today, the basis for effective military-patriotic upbringing of young citizens of the CSTO member countries will help to form respect and love for Motherland.
"It is first of all awareness, trust in institutions of state authorities, working social elevators and the role of media is important as well. Lessons of unity and courage of the Soviet people during the Second World War can show an excellent example for younger generation nowdays, but it is time for the young people to form their own examples and move from words to deeds," Head of the Eurasian-New Wave Foundation in Kyrgyzstan, Vladimir Liu said.
The forum was attended by Deputies of Parliament and representatives of state authorities of the Kyrgyz Republic, as well as experts from Russia and Kyrgyzstan.
