Patriotism is mostly well regarded in modern Russian society, being associated with love for the motherland, willingness to defend it, support for the state. However, state patriotism in Russia lacks citizenship, that is, the willingness of individuals to actively participate in social affairs geared toward the well-being of the society. The article will discuss various formal and informal civic patriotic practices related to volunteer, charitable, environmental and human rights activities in regional communities in the South of Russia.
