Patriarch Kirill suggests introducing term "a Russian world country"

Patriarch Kirill suggests introducing term «a Russian world country»Moscow. A new term could be introduced which would denote a community of the countries united by the Russian culture, said Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.

«The term 'a Russian world country' could be introduced into usage. It would mean that a country sees itself as part of the Russian world, if it uses Russian as the language of international communication, promotes the Russian culture, and preserves the general historical memory,» Patriarch Kirill said at the opening of the 3rd Russian World Assembly in Moscow on Tuesday.

Today the nations inhabiting the area of the historical Rus should «realize their being part of the same civilization and see the Russian world as their common supranational project,» the Patriarch said.

It is important to preserve the unique deep meaning of the term «Russian world» and to preserve original Russian cultural tradition, Patriarch Kirill said.

«We need to continue to be aware of the uniqueness of the Russian way of living and reproduce it not only in the countries with a predominantly Russian culture, but also to attest to it far beyond our boundaries,» the Russian Church primate said.

No country of the Russian world can act on the international arena totally alone, the principle of unity should be respected here as well, he said.

«Only a united Russian world can become a strong subject of international law,» Patriarch Kirill said.
