Will pass «a piety festival» in the Sampsoniyevsky garden

On July 10 will pass the I Historical and cultural, military-patriotic festival "For Russia and the Russian Piety" in the Sampsoniyevsky garden. The event is dated for the Victory Day of the Russian army under Peter I's command in the Poltava battle.
The holiday will be opened by a solemn liturgy after which flower-laying to a gravestone of the soldier of a Petrovsky era – Nikolay Grigoryevich Lopotev is planned, for the possible participant of the Poltava battle. For an idea of the organizers, the grave has become a symbol monument of courage and piety of the simple Russian soldier. "We revere the memory of the great commanders and it is correct, but it is impossible to win a victory without courage of the simple soldier ready to lay down the life for the Fatherland", - Alexander Pelin the prior of the memorial temple the Sampsoniyevsky cathedral noted.
The entertaining part will begin with representation of the military and historical clubs of Russia reconstructing the Petrovsky era. Methods of possession of a cold weapon, secrets of the Russian military art will be shown. Military manoeuvres of "Pyotr's sons", the broken Swedes will become the culmination of a festival.
At a concert venue of a festival will pass performances of popular collectives. Throughout a festival interactive platform where everyone will be able to touch the recovered history will work, will learn applied Russian creativity, ancient dances.
"Import substitution of goods is now popular, time came to reject and alien ideas. I think, all were bothered by the ideas imposed by alien cultures, this "the western cud". It is time to remember that our people have cultural reference points to which it is necessary to adhere", - Alexander Pelin said.
