Krasikov focused his attention on the question: what has changed since then and what awaits us tomorrow?

The speaker expressed his belief that Catholics will continue to follow the decisions of the Second Vatican Council, according to which «the origin, the subject and the goal of all social establishments is and must be the human person».
