      Russian Church: Russia is able to realize its own idea of civil society
      without borrowing it abroad

      *** In this case 2017 will become the year o triumph of Russia, not of
      its split

      Moscow, January 10, Interfax - Russia is summoned not to borrow the
      civil society ideas from the foreign experience but to realize the ones
      which correspond to the self-consciousness of the people, the head of
      the Synodal Department for Church and Society Relations Archpriest
      Vsevolod Chaplin.

      "Some radical political forces threaten us with 2017. They say that 17
      is the fatal figure for Russia. As a matter of fact we have good chance
      of making the forthcoming 17th year opposite to 1917, to make it a year
      of creation, not destruction, to make it a year of state crisis but its
      strengthening, reinforcing of the ties between the state and the
      people," the priest said at a press conference in Interfax.

      By his opinion, "Russia`s mistakes in the 20th century generally were
      caused by trying to borrow ideologies alien to its development,
      self-consciousness and historical way for its people."

      "This borrowing led to 1917, caused a lot of problems after that date,
      made a sharp deterioration of psychological state for Russia in 1990s
      when the people for some reason decided to copy some foreign ideas and
      models to build up the worthy future," he said.
