Whole concept of neo-paganism is simply return to pre-Christian original native faith and culture of Slavs.

Sure, it is reconstructed, but what else can be expected? Ancient Slavic rituals, festivals and rites were practiced centuries ago and passed down from generation to generation in those times. There is no recorded way of how things were done.

But it is religion. It is modern-day interpretation and at same time, return to roots of ancient Slavic tradition.

"Being closer to nature" is perfectly natural feeling to have and ties in very much with our ancestors, since they lived in nature and relied on it for survival in ancient times. Respect for nature is something key to all ancient pagan religions.
