Cultural values need to be protected from moral and material destruction, so it is necessary to sign an international agreement. This was stated by Governor Anton Alikhanov at the Baltic Cultural Forum, which opened in Svetlogorsk on Thursday, April 21.
“I propose, following the results of the Fourth International Forum, to submit to the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation an initiative to propose to ministers of culture of all countries of the world and heads of state on the need to protect culture and cultural centers, in particular from moral and material destruction. We would like to sign such an agreement in Kaliningrad.”
The district chief added that for several years he had watched “the imposition of different agendas through culture.”
“You know, I am a modern person and I am well versed in various aspects of modern culture, I am a gamer. Sometimes I watch with horror what happens in games. Even for me, as an adult who has made up his mind in life a long time ago, some things are simply amazing. For example , What happens in the West with the culture of cancellation. <...> I, who has been observing the liberal-fascist trend in recent years, [это] Undoubtedly disappointed, ”admitted Alikhanov.
The governor reminded “how Soviet artists and art historians saved masterpieces in Dresden in 1945” and that “in the most difficult period of relations” between the West and the Soviet Union, no one intended to abolish “sports, culture and science”.
The culture of cancellation must be abolished. This is undoubtedly a phenomenon that indicates a potentially dangerous deterioration in society as a whole, at the international level. I think it must be said that the culture of canceling people and sports is an unacceptable practice that should be banned. Alikhanov concluded his speech by saying: Until this is stipulated in international documents, we believe that it will be difficult to fight such a phenomenon.
