Speaking Armenian, going to the Apostolic Church 1-2 times a year, lighting a candle is not patriotism yet. Robert Kocharyan stated this yesterday during a distant meeting with his supporters. "Unfortunately, the state occupies a very small place in our national identity as a component. Many have no place at all.

A large number of people think that they speak Armenian, their child speaks Armenian, they go to church, if they live abroad they come for a month in the summer, eat apricots, Garni, Geghard, that's patriotism. We must do everything possible to ensure that our statehood in our national identity is such a component that it should have a dominant place in all this. Unfortunately, we do not have it for obvious reasons, we have not had a statehood and we have tried to keep our national identity with other tools. Even if you try to touch upon our culture and literature, there is no place for our statehood as a central theme.

It is not reflected in our literature, poetry, in our culture in general. This means that we did not bring it from the past, now we have to shape it. The state has a lot to do in this formation. Without the active support of state institutions, we will not achieve anything. We will have a very serious national mentality, but it will not be transformed into a state mentality. We face this deep problem every day. My impression is that this is not taken seriously enough by the public and especially by the state bodies, "he said.
