“The authors midst a Facebook posts pour out tons of bile to mock the traditional values of the Russian people: faith, Christianity, family, spirituality,” — said Tolstoy (quoted by TASS). He stressed that these are the basic components of our national consciousness and the state of the device.
Tolstoy recalled that over the centuries Russia has repeatedly tried to ruin, to undermine from within by discrediting the faith, spirituality, family values, love of country. “Tried, but failed, and I’m sure that will come. Therefore, such attempts should stop. Sometimes to stop hard”, he said.
