President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin - 1920, 21.10.2021

SOCHI, 21 October – Attempts to dictate values ​​in the context of uncertain and unpredictable prospects usually entail a reverse reaction and the opposite of the expected result, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The head of state is taking part in a plenary session of the Valdai International Discussion Club on Thursday.
Speaking at the meeting, Putin said that values ​​are a unique product of the cultural and historical development of each nation, mutual interweaving broadens one’s horizons and allows one to comprehend one’s own tradition in a different way.
“But this process must be organic and cannot be fast, and the alien will still be rejected, perhaps even in a sharp form. Attempts at value diktat in conditions of uncertain and unpredictable prospects further complicate an already acute situation and usually entail a reverse reaction and the opposite of the expected result, “the president said.
