“we are talking about the heritage that makes us who we are. When we talk about the national idea, it can be formulated as follows: we must be worthy of their ancestors. We do not forget their ancestors, from them we got the ideals, faith in God, maybe in different gods. The continuity of all this, we would like to emphasize that we are one people. We have a common culture that distinguishes us from others, a culture that needs to be protected by the state, not just to be available to anyone. And in this culture there are ethnic and cultural differences, which must not only confess, but protected by the state. We have two tasks all the time to protect our Russian language that it spoke well to fulfill its function, perform a specific function, it is also an international language. And at the same time, we must protect all the languages of the peoples that we live in the country — from the largest to the smallest, because even the smallest language spoken by 5 or 6 people is ingreat value,” says Mikhail Piotrovsky and member of the working group on amendments to the Constitution.
