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, congratulations on this truly “masculine” holiday! Please tell us how it happened that you spent 12 years in the service?

- This is true. With the amendment that most of this time I served in the Soviet army. And this happened - it couldn’t be simpler! I am a typical “product” of the Soviet era, when all people are brothers, when Ostrovsky’s novel “How the Steel Was Tempered” is a reference book, when you must be first everywhere and always, and when there is no doubt in you that a man is the defender of the Motherland. Not to mention how prestigious it was to be an officer.

— You served as an officer for 7 years, what did this experience give you?

— This experience is priceless. It’s just that when you have a bunch of people under your command, there’s no room for weakness. After all, you are a father-commander (and it doesn’t matter that some subordinates are old enough to be your fathers). Of course, you can remember the joke about those who “don’t laugh in the circus,” but I won’t do that. It seems to me that it is thanks to this time that I now write, sing, and have not lost my sense of humor and self-irony and have not become a cynic.

— The album “Sons” includes songs dedicated to important life conclusions during the years of service. But surely you have other compositions that the general public has not yet heard?

- Yes, I have. I often perform them at concerts, but have not yet recorded them in the studio and released them. So, I think a second album on the same topic will also be released one day.

— Who brought up this patriotism in you?

— First of all, time itself, a school in which most of the teachers were front-line soldiers. Well, the main person is mom, an example of her resilience in life and inexhaustible thirst to save someone and help everyone.

— Despite the fact that the duration of military service has now been reduced to one year, many guys “mow away” from it. In your opinion, is military service the duty of every man?

- In my time there was no talk about this, at least I don’t remember this. Moreover, life is longer than service; you cannot escape from it. Well, as for debt, of course, it’s debt! And the duty is sacred, no matter how pretentious it may sound.

— What qualities do you think a man should have to be called one?

“Mom always said that a man does not come from the word “husband,” but from the word “courage.” Therefore, it is already clear to everyone who is not “squinting” from life that the indicator of a man is kindness, a sense of humor, and the ability to take a step ahead. In a word, everything that maintains a natural balance, in which our women do not take advantage of weakness for manipulation, but are actually weak and happy. Well, war is war! There is courage - to survive and return as a human being.

— Dmitry, thank you for the conversation. Once again we congratulate you, and in your person, 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 Zvuk-M company.
