Russian tanks in Donetsk, a Ukrainian Army airplane IL-76 downed in Luhansk, 49 people died…
This means that the Russian authorities waged a war against Ukraine and to be more precise against the anti-corruption revolution of national dignity.
This is a new type of war, without announcing it and without a front line. Nonetheless it is a war, because military equipment is used, because people get killed, because the count of dead is in hundreds. There are citizens of Ukraine and Russia among the killed.
A war has begun.
- all official Soviet and post-Soviets myths are being destroyed and
- a true character of the Russian political regime comes to the surface.
The cultivated by the authorities myth about the “sacred memory” of the Great Patriotic war has been destroyed. The Georgian ribbon has throttled the tragic historic experience of our people, the main conclusion of 1941-1945 that a war is not acceptable and that the one who wages a war commits a crime against humanity, against life, against peace has been thrown away. 27 million have fallen in vain!
The myth about “brotherly Ukrainian nation” is destroyed, we won’t have any brother now for a very long time, nor friends. It is true, an ordinary Russian does not wage a war against anyone, he can be friends with a German, a Chinese, a Tajik, and a Czech… but Ukrainian were always ours! First Ukrainian, Second Ukrainian (fronts in WWII – ed.)…. Only anti-Russians non-humans can fights against Ukrainians!
The myth about Russia as a orthodox state has been destroyed. Orthodox cannot shoot orthodox! The hierarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church not only did not dare to denounce fratricidal war mongers, they did not even voice a request to stop the war! In the modern Russia the Orthodoxy turned into an instrument of official policy, wrapped in a robe.
Russian media completely ceased to perform the function of informing citizens. Leading TV channels are a direct and open mouthpiece of the terrorist organizations “DPR” and “LPR”. In Russia there is no more media, there are restored mass agitation and propaganda, which existed in the USSR. They action and western free voices are barely heard!
Destruction of the key post-Soviet myths means the collapse of all other myths built on the key ones and loss of the basis of all official government declarations. Constitution, rule of law, prohibition of censorship are a “cloud in trousers” or without them… In such a suffocating atmosphere one can hardly breathe!
What can I wish to the fooled Russian audience and “useful idiots”, like Marie Le Pen and the Bundestag MP, who was shouting about fascists on Maidan, I don’t even know.
…If the Ukrainian authorities will pay a cent of the “debt” for the gas without a prior conditions – “remove all Russian “volunteers” and “advisors” from the territory of Ukraine”, then I either understand nothing or the revolution has lost! To pay for its own destruction is more than absurd!
You must understand that a resurrected and modernised Stalin’s regime is acting in Russia today!
