Educating children is secondary in comparison with teaching them patriotism. Such an opinion was voiced by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the eve of the All-Russian Graduate Day in the Kremlin.

He said that during a meeting with school teachers, whose students showed highest results during the final exams.

“To study is a hard work. It’s not easy to get knowledge, especially modern, broad knowledge. But it’s still secondary in comparison with the upbringing of a person, so that they properly treat themselves, their friends, their family, and their Homeland. These are absolutely fundamental things,” he said.

According to Putin, only at such a base one can expect that graduates of Russian schools will become full-fledged people and will themselves receive satisfaction from life.
