    MOSCOW, 14 February. /RIA Novosti/. While laying flowers on behalf of the upper house of the Russian parliament to the monument to army personnel perished during military operations abroad Sergei Mironov, speaker of the Federation Council stated that the decision to use Russian armed forces abroad would be responsibly taken by senators in the interests of Russia and they would always remember that "life of any soldier, any citizen, any son of the Fatherland was invaluable." The ceremony took place on Saturday in the city of Krasnogorsk (Moscow region) on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of withdrawal of the Soviet military contingent from Afghanistan.

    Sergei Mironov stressed that "politicians should be liable to its people, to mothers of the dead and should always think ahead and not to be governed by some geopolitical ideas." In response to questions of journalists the head of the upper house of the parliament refuted the necessity to adopt in Russia a law on patriotism which existed in certain countries. He stressed the necessity to think about patriotic upbringing of the youth.

    Sergei Mironov stated: "It is necessary for our young people to remember and know their history, the place where they were born, as it is done in Krasnogorsk. The most important is for young men and women to know their heroes, their ancestors, to know whom they are to be grateful for living on this land. Then they will understand that it depends on them to make Russia a great country so that both we and they be proud of."
