Dmitry Yurkov spoke about his service in the army
Today, the whole country celebrates the Day of Defender of the Fatherland, and we join the congratulations that are addressed to men, and first of all to those who defended Russia over the years, showing loyalty to duty and oath, discipline and courage, courage and love for Motherland.
Among the artists of the music publishing house “Zvuk-M” there are a lot of those who served in the army, and many even reflected this period of life in their work. So, a popular author and performer Dmitry Yurkov released a whole album with notes of military - "Sons", dedicated to the events that happened to him and his comrades during his military service.

Dmitry Yurkov has served in the army for more than ten years
What were these years, and who raised in him a sense of patriotism, we decided to find out today ...
- Dmitry, we congratulate you on this truly “masculine” holiday! Please tell us how it happened that you gave the 12 service to years?
- And there is. With the amendment that most of this time I served in the Soviet army. And it happened - it doesn't get easier! I am a typical “product” of the Soviet era, when all people are brothers, when Ostrovsky’s novel “How Steel Was Hardened” is a reference book, when you have to always be first and always, and when you have no doubt that man is a defender of the Motherland. Not to mention how prestigious it was to be an officer.
- Have you served as an 7 officer for years, that gave you this experience?
- This experience is priceless. Just when you have a lot of people in your submission, there is no place for weakness. After all, you are the father-commander (and it doesn’t matter that some subordinates suit you as fathers). Of course, you can remember a joke about those who “do not laugh in a circus,” but I will not do that. It seems to me that it is because of this time that I am writing, singing, not lost my sense of humor and self-irony, and did not become a cynic.
- The album "Sons" includes songs dedicated to important life conclusions in the years of service. But, for sure, you have other songs that the general public has not yet heard?
- Yes there is. I often perform them at concerts, but have not yet managed to record them in the studio and release. So, I think the second album on the same topic will also see the light one day.
- And who brought up this patriotism in you?
- First of all, time itself, the school in which most of the teachers were front-line soldiers. Well, the main person is a mother, an example of her vitality and an inexhaustible thirst for someone to sleep and help everyone.
- Despite the fact that the service life in the army is now reduced to one year, many guys are “mowing down” from it. How do you think army service is the duty of every man?
- In my time, there was no talk of this, in any case, I don’t remember that. Moreover, the life is longer than the service, you can not “stand aside” from it. Well, at the expense of debt, of course, this is a debt! And the duty is sacred, no matter how pathetic it sounds.
- What do you think, what qualities should a man have in order to be called such?
- Mom always said that a man is not from the word “husband”, but from the word “courage”. Therefore, anyone who does not "mow down" from life, and so it is clear that the indicator of masculine is kindness, a sense of humor, the ability to take a step ahead of the curve. In short, all that preserves the natural balance, in which our women do not use weakness for manipulation, but in fact they are weak and happy. Well, war is war! There is the courage to survive and return as a man.
- Dmitry, thanks for the conversation. We congratulate you once again, and in your face and all the defenders of the Motherland, on this holiday! We wish you strength and health, happiness and love! And, of course, we are waiting for the birth of a new album, which will be released with the assistance of the company “Zvuk-M”.
