Details: The published guidelines specify that the geopolitical situation and the war against Ukraine require government agencies to engage in practical and systematic work, including strengthening patriotism among employees. 

To achieve this, measures are outlined to ensure the timely dissemination of information about the military-political situation in the country and the world, as well as conducting educational activities regarding the study of Russia's history, wars in which it took part and its development.
