Recently it often appears in mass media sources and in popular publications a tendency to equate the modern Russian Pagan movement with followers and amateurs of fictions, such as people like Valery Chudinov, Nikolai Levashov, Gennady Grinevich, Alexander Khinevich, Alexei Trehlebov and etc.
The apprehensions declared in their books are presented as model pagan conceptions and viewpoints, though these are figments of aforesaid people’s imaginations and their deliberate provocations.
We, the international public movement ‘the Circle of Pagan Traditions’, guided by the Manifesto of Pagan Traditions within the UNESCO Convention Concerning the Protection of the World's Cultural and Natural Heritage, and the Union of Slavic Communities of the Slavic Native Belief guided by own Regulations, make the following statements:
Hereby we, the undersigned representatives of the Circle of the Pagan Traditions and the Union of Slavic Communities of the Slavic Native Belief, declare that our members or supporters have not nor will not ever have anything in common with those provocative book authors; neither to any groups nor actions related to their views or ideas, nor those who stand behind their works.
Acting Chairman of the Board of the Circle of Pagan Traditions, Mr. Constantine Begtin (a.k.a. volhv Ogneyar)
Head of the Union of Slavic Communities of the Slavic Native Belief, Mr. Vadim Kazakov.
