Khasavyurt agreement: betrayal or forced measure? 20 years of issues
Many people remember the beginning of the Chechen conflict. No, not 1994. Much earlier. This is about 1991. When the country is "mutilo" from a brain break. When the people divided into those who rushed into "civilized Europe", those who stood up for the USSR and those who suddenly remembered their ethnicity.
Remember Moscow August 1991? When did "all the people" stand up for freedom? All the people quietly fit in the territories around the White House, part of Tver and part of the Garden Ring. I myself then fit there. Right on the steps of the main staircase from the embankment.
It was then that a general appeared in Chechnya aviation Dudaev. An outstanding personality for the republic is Major General. It was then that Dudaev “deposed” the legitimate government of Doku Zavgaev. Remember the fall events of that year? How did Dudaev actively “squeeze out” the Russian population from Chechnya?
Yeltsin tried to “reason” “President Dudayev” in his style. Let's give Chechnya a special status! Only a mad dog does not need a special status. She is mad because she is not responsible for her actions. And even then the Chechen elite understood all the advantages of "independence."
As a result, December 9 1994, Yeltsin signs a decree "On measures to curb the activities of illegal armed groups on the territory of the Chechen Republic and in the zone of the Ossetian-Ingush conflict." And on December 11, the first military units entered Chechnya.
The collapse of the country, the disruption in the economy, the demolition of moral values, the elimination of the foundations of the army structure could not but affect the combat capability of the army. And not only combat units. Then "broke" everything. Including intelligence (as a pillar of the communist regime). In the end, 1995 year was tragic for our army. The army did not know the real combat potential of the militants! Many people remember the terrible film of Alexander Nevzorov about the capture of Grozny. And how many such plots were then. How much treachery and frank "plum" units and parts ...
I remember the "television confrontation" and the opposition in other media. Society is actively "shared." They divided into those who are ready to continue to send soldiers to the Chechen mountains and those who offered to leave Chechnya alone. How many mothers of dead soldiers were then shown on TV. How many prisoners. How many scary frames are not laid out on the Internet.
And then there's the 1996 election campaign of the year. The one where we "voted with the heart." The results of this campaign still do not give rest to many political scientists and analysts. Yeltsin "won" then with a minimum margin of Zyuganov. Although many of the then elite say that Zyuganov was simply afraid of victory. But this is not the main thing. The main thing is that the third in the list of winners was the little-known General Lebed.
Today, probably, we can say that it was Swan, who gave “his” voices to Yeltsin, determined the victory of the EBN. But such a charity was adequately paid. And Lebed became secretary of the Security Council! I still do not know how to relate to Cygnus. The people loved him. People grieved when he died. The figure for me is very ambiguous, with all due respect for the merits of General Lebed.
And then, on the personal initiative of A. Lebed, full-scale negotiations began with the new leadership of Chechnya in the person of Yandarbiyev and Maskhadov. Because, thanks to the brilliant operation of our intelligence officers, in the spring of 1996, Dudayev was eliminated.
The agreement signed by Lebed and Berezovsky in fact meant the admission of the defeat of the Russian army in the war with the bandits. It was a spit in the face of the soldiers, officers and generals of our armed forces. Especially since by that time they had learned to fight. And they beat the militants seriously.
How they reacted to the agreement, perfectly illustrated by an excerpt from the memoirs of General Troshev (2001 g):
“You are a general, you can count anything,” the metropolitan visitor (Berezovsky) flashed his eyes. “Your task is to remain silent, listen and fulfill what Lebed and I are saying. Understand?”
Why was this agreement necessary? To save the Russians in Chechnya? In order to "calm" the Chechen gangsters? So in 5 years (by agreement) to give independence to Chechnya?
Not much time has passed since then. Most witnesses are alive today. And the results of the agreement are also not forgotten. Russian soldiers remained in captivity. Many died at the hands of bandits. Russian families were not only persecuted, but also directly destroyed. They laughed at Russia. Laughing at the Russian army.
Weak beat! The weak are not respected! Over the weak mock! General Lebed did not become an "Eagle" general. And subsequent events proved the old truth. With the bandits can not negotiate. They will observe the contract only in one case - when they are held by the contract for a causal place. As long as you hold, they will keep their word. Let go of ...
That is what happened in 1999 ... But for this, the bandits had to blow up houses in Moscow, Buynaksk, Volgodonsk ... For this, many victims were “taken”. The victims are not among the soldiers and officers. Just among peaceful people. I was right after the explosion at the site of the 9 storey on Kashira highway ... I saw it with my own eyes. And he heard the explosion. He lived a kilometer from the ill-fated home. And I saw corpses ... Believe me, I had to see a lot in my life and collide with many things, but the victims of terrorist acts are something special. As victims of disasters. After this, you can immediately send to the most terrible place on the front. Immediately. And the soldier will go without thinking.
September 23 went "otvetka" from our army. Began massive bombing of Grozny and the surrounding area. And September 30 began the second Chechen ... 10 years of deaths, victories and failures, heroism and betrayal. 10 years of war. The counter-terrorist operation ended only 16 on April 2009 of the year.
Many of the participants in those events today again in the political elite. We see many on TV screens. Many even occupy serious positions. But no one suffered the punishment. For various reasons, participants in the events mentioned in this article are “sent by fate to another world”. The rest are shyly silent. But rethinking events is necessary.
Today it is fashionable to talk about "Islam" introduced from outside. About action movies that were not even Chechens. About the attack on Russia of some terrible force of world importance.
Or maybe it's worth a closer look? Maybe we should talk about those who urged to respect the "choice of the Chechen people" in our capitals? What choice can there be when the Chechen villages were captured by bandits? When a sufficiently closed society suddenly realized that it was impossible to hope for legitimate authority. And the best friend of the family (tape) was the machine gun. A better - a few.
It’s good that there was a leader among the Chechens - Akhmat Kadyrov. There was a person who understood the essence of the "fighters for the independence of Ichkeria". I understood and paid for it with my life. It was he who took on the role of a unifier of the Chechen people. Probably someone will grin. Kadyrov himself seems to be also from field commanders ... Yes, one of them. And his son too. Only what would he be the head of the clan (teip), if he was afraid and frightened?
I repeat, Chechnya is a mountainous country. And the mountaineers have always lived, and even now they live, in a fairly closed society. Much of what is already forgotten for us story, there is still relevant today. And it is difficult to understand. The actions of the gangsters and our traitors, especially in Khasavyurt, largely rejected Chechen society many decades ago. The departure of the Russians brought down industry and culture. Yes, and in many ways the moral climate in the republic.
Today, young people are being "driven" to study in Russia. By hook or by crook. It's necessary. They will return and become competent engineers, teachers, doctors. They will be the builders of their republic. Not residents, but builders.
So what is the Khasavyurt Agreement? For the author, this is the humiliation of Russia, spitting on all servicemen, especially those who fought honestly and could then still win, the betrayal of those Chechens who supported Moscow in this war, the betrayal of the Russians in Chechnya. A series of betrayals that continues today.
Continues in calls to stop resisting the "democratic peace." Continues in rewriting our history. Continues in calls to "understand and forgive." How many traitors today emerged from obscurity. Recall the beginning of the 2000's. The coming to power of Putin.
They evaporated ... They disappeared and fell silent. And today, once again "fighting the regime", "bringing to the clear water" of our athletes, "revealing the militaristic essence of" modern Russia. Daily!
"Khasavyurt Russia" continues to live. And it will be difficult to eradicate it. For the time being, those who are allowed to "spoil" Russia and the Russians in the media, on television, in the European "commissions" feel calm and are not responsible for their words. The betrayal of Khasavyurt will continue.
And it is here that the principle that we have deduced for ourselves in that Odessa May should work: we will not forget, we will not forgive.
