Falsification of history as a threat to national security

Abstract. In the context of the international situation, the falsification of history should be viewed as a threat to national security. The possibility of countering the falsification of history with the help of administrative coercion is absent. The only way to solve the problem is to increase the authority of history as a science. Respect for one’s own history is possible only by increasing the authority of historians. The fight against plagiarism, the low level of scientific work, interest, first of all, in studying the history of Russia – these are the main directions of the necessary development of modern historical thought from the point of view of national security.

Achieving success in these areas without the support of the state is difficult. The social status of the historian must correspond to the level of the state’s claims to historical sovereignty. Only by creating favorable (including economic and domestic) working conditions of the scientific historical community, the state will be able to achieve the desired result – preserving traditional spiritual and moral values and countering the falsification of history.

Key words: russian history, education and upbringing, national security.
