This holiday is inextricably linked with the glorious heroic pages of our history in 1612. Today, it symbolizes the idea of national consensus and cohesion around common goals and objectives. Our common victories and achievements serve as a unifying principle not only for those directly living in Russia, but also for thousands of compatriots abroad who do not think of themselves outside of Russian history, culture, language and faith.
Common ideas and goals always rallied the Russians, raised them to the defence of the sovereignty of their country and helped them survive in the most difficult conditions. National unification today does not lose its relevance. In the face of a difficult foreign policy situation, this very idea, sealed by the heroic events of our history, should be a beacon for successfully overcoming any difficulties and achieving goals for the benefit of all Russians.
Annually on the Day of National Unity in the RCSC around the world traditionally held meetings of compatriots, exhibitions, film screenings, festivals of folk culture and other events.
