PART ONE. ACTIVITY

 

In the beginning, I want to discuss our organization and its activity.

If we are only talking, if we are educating one another, and even if we have  intelligent discussions on forums or at conferences, then there is no organization. An organization means activity. Activity, which needs to be planned. Activity, which needs organizational and intellectual support.

PART ONE. ACTIVITIES

 

I begin each program in this cycle with the subject of our activity.

Let us begin with its specific aspects. We decided to conduct a second public opinion poll. A more detailed and deeper one, the results of which will help us answer a number of questions. This is a large project that will once again require great effort from us. Sociologists agreed to participate in this project. They have already finalized a questionnaire and created a group that will conduct a mathematical analysis of the survey results. More than one and a half thousand volunteers have also said they agree to conduct the survey.

Key features of international documents on domestic and gender-based violence

22.09.2019, Warsaw.

Lately, we have been frequently hearing complaints on the part of the international community that Russia has not adopted a law on domestic violence and that our country has not signed other documents to eliminate violence and discrimination against women. However, Russia has its own proven track record of addressing discrimination against women. Our country is one of the world’s leaders in terms of the number of women in leadership positions, and it surpasses the US and EU countries in this indicator.

Today the residents of Donbass awarded me with the Miner’s Glory of the I degree badge. Meanwhile, I again peered intently into the very aged faces of those who had once managed separate branches of the Soviet economy and the Soviet economy as a whole.

These are amazingly pure faces; these are people on whose faces it is written that they didn’t steal, that they did not derive unparalleled joy from grand larceny. It is written so clearly on their faces; and especially now, with age taking its toll, it becomes even scarier, for it is very clear what has come to replace them.

During the previous program, we had to discuss the results of the work already done on the AKSIO program [abbreviated Russian: Agency for Cultural and Social Studies of Society] in great detail, which took a considerable amount of time. This gives us the opportunity today to discuss, without stopping on the Activity portion, the issues of relevant politics, political philosophy and political theory which are also of extreme importance to us.
