There were questions and prepared by our newspaper, but, unfortunately, ask them was not possible. However, we do not feel about this gloom, t. To. The thoughts and statements of the president of the country allow enough accurately represent the meaning of the possible answers to our questions and even submit its position on a broad range of issues of concern to all the hunting community.
First and foremost. Both in politics and in the economy, we must rely on our own strength and resources. On «zabugornye»Help can not count, but if someone has and expects it, they should remember that the price for it will be requested prohibitive. This fully applies to the situation with a hunting economy. In such a difficult time, it is important to the thesis of the unity of purpose and power of the country, including in matters of hunting, the rational use of animal resources and environment of the country. And it must not be forgotten that the government’s actions have to be thought out, clear and responsible. Historically, so that we can understand and forgive any mistake or wrongdoing committed by the authorities in the interests of the people, but never betrayal of its interests or neglect them.
The second rather unexpected conclusion that can be, and probably should, be applied to the situation around the hunt. The idea of a fine line between the opposition and the fifth column. An example is the attempts by some organizations and individuals to deprive us of spring hunting, or the desire to involve the country in the international agreements that will govern the production of certain game animals to the detriment of local hunters. It seems that at the present stage, such actions, let alone civil servants supporting them, are absolutely unacceptable, because contrary to the logic of public policy. We are not trying to hang tags or obstruction call for those who advocate for the preservation of renewable natural resources, but just want to remind everyone that their actions should not be in conflict with the interests of the people. For such «nature lovers» it is time to decide where the line between their personal opposition and the fifth column.
