The Mountain of Donbass and the Neo-Nazi gloating
I took this photo at the 9 parade on May 2016. When a combat vehicle with “Spartans” and their brave commander drove through, it seemed that the whole Donetsk joyfully chanted: “Hurray! Motorola! ”Then no one could have imagined that half a year would not pass — and this hero would lead a completely different parade. Your last parade. The one after which he will immediately go to a special front - to Eternity ...
The following photos were sent to me by the Donetsk poetess Irina Bauer. October 19 in the capital of the DPR passed an unprecedented farewell to the man who became one of the most recognizable symbols of the "Russian Spring". And this tragic, but grand event is already an integral part. stories young republic.
From the very early morning, thousands of people flocked to the Opera and Ballet Theater, located on the main street of Donetsk - Artem Street. It was this beautiful building, over which 7 of September 1943, when fierce battles with the Nazis were going to liberate the city, the soldiers of the 87 Guards Rifle Division raised the Red Banner, which was now chosen as the place of goodbye of the people for Motorola - the new anti-fascist.
Many these days remember that in October 1942, there were fierce battles with the Nazis in Stalingrad. And one of the most important centers of struggle was Pavlov’s House, which resisted the invaders longer than entire European countries. Now, as they say, there is a Pavlov House in Donetsk. This is a modest nine-story building on Chelyuskintsev Street, entering into the entrance of which Arseny managed to write an SMS to his wife: “Open the doors. I'm here". But he never reached the apartment ... Where the ominous explosion in the elevator thundered and where people now bring flowers and candles ... Contrary to a common misconception, this was not at all a “specially guarded object” ...
To say goodbye to the tragically lost commander of the "Sparta", the Pitmen and the residents of neighboring cities lined up in a gigantic queue - at least ten thousand people. The two hours allotted for parting turned out to be negligible - not all were able to enter the hall. Then a mourning procession took place on Artem Street, in which about 50 thousands of citizens took part. He once triumphantly drove along the same street during the parade in honor of Victory Day ... A three-day mourning was announced for those who fell in the DPR.
“The people were like during the Russian spring or the 9 May parade,” share those who were at the solemn sad ceremony. Here were the first persons of the Republic. Danila, the eldest son of Arseny Pavlov from his first marriage, came from Russia to accompany his father on his last journey. He carried on a velvet cushion the star of the Hero of the DPR, which his father won in difficult battles.
As it happens with heroes of such a scale, verses have already been written about Motorola. Here, for example, the lines of the Crimean poet Oleg Vorobyov:
We are taught not to dream and to believe in what is.
They say you think a lot - we will cover you with earth.
Yes, the truth is simple - what an honor to slaves?
In the land of crooked mirrors, it is no use being a hero.
... We are taught to forget advisers do not count.
We listen and wait, we try without a mat.
And the truth is simple and cold as revenge,
And it is not enough for her “Norman format”.
Very few people are honored with such a grand farewell, poems, a sea of flowers ... For this you need to live your life in such a way as to become not only a star of hope for your own, but also a deadly horror for your enemies. And from the “country of crooked mirrors”, the country ruled by the victorious Maidan junta, the country from which satanic joy came about the death of the Hero of the DPR, now shouts of indignation can be heard about how many people gathered to say goodbye to Motorola.
The famous neo-Nazi banderlog Yarosh, fleeing from the battlefield at crucial moments and throwing his subordinates there, burst into a match in which he roughly insulted the late soldier and exclaimed: “Glory to the nation! Death vorogam". Bandera, like Yarosh, can shout these slogans to hoarseness, but there is too little glory in that mean-spirited and cowardly murder that was committed on the evening of October October 16 in Donetsk. Yarosh also remembered the same slogan that Mr. Poroshenko said recently: “He who comes to us with a sword will perish by the sword". However, this slogan is brazen plagiarism of the “aggressor”. And they remember the sequel? “RUSSIAN land stood and will stand on that”.
The angry and emotional speech of Alexander Zakharchenko on the death of a military friend caused a sharp rejection of another Maidan's “heroine” - the notorious Nadezhda Savchenko. In her video message, she accused Zakharchenko of the allegedly declared intention to “cut out Ukrainian families” (although he did not say that). "Killing a man who killed himself is not a sin. But to declare that you will cut out innocent families ... Well, you know, Alexander, you think what you are saying! And what are you after this, on ***. the officer?“, Said the punitive woman spared by Russia, on whose conscience is the death of two unarmed Russian journalists. Which, according to numerous testimonies, personally tortured prisoners and extinguished the "bulls" about living human eyes ...
Social networks facebook and instagram began to ban users in batches for posts about Motorola. Previously, they were banned for the words “dill” and “ukry”, and now - even for simple human words of condolence and portrait of a hero. But the toughest posts of Russophobes do not lead to the bans of their authors ... Including, this also applies to those posts in which the “ukropatriots” called for striking the projectiles against the crowd, who left to say goodbye to Arseny Pavlov.
But among the evil ukrootklikov the triumphal funeral of the Hero of the DNI caught one in which there are hints of common sense. Despite the fact that the response itself is imbued with hatred, its author, Ukrainian journalist Alena Yakhno, stated: “We have not lost the Donbass. Simply, he was never truly ours. These are people with Russian identity. Their capital is Moscow. And Ukraine for them is a geographical misunderstanding. We must admit it, realize it, accept it and let them go to their beloved Mordor. To native claps».
Yes! While the other ukrobloggery write that they would not want to live in the same state with people who came to say goodbye to the "Motorola", but would like to return the Donbass (territory without people) - Yahno, even though choking with hatred, still expresses the only desire of the majority of residents of the mining region: to be left alone. To stop the criminal killings, shelling and foul sneak attacks.
Unfortunately, the response to the death of Arseny Pavlov from the Kremlin was too “diplomatic”. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Motorola’s support is not Moscow’s position. "There is public opinion. Public opinion is sensitive to certain events, the role of certain people. This is not an official position; it is not a reflection of the official line."- he said. Thank you for recognizing the right of the public to your opinion. Of course, political correctness is political correctness, the Norman format is the Norman format, but still it’s about the death of a Russian citizen who went to defend the Russian people. Moreover, he went after the phrase of one of the Banderaites: “For one of ours we will kill 100 Russians”. And he died in a terrorist attack.
The same thing - that our compatriot perished and public opinion is on his side - should be remembered by our home-grown liberals, who hastened to spit on Arseny’s fresh grave ...
For the sake of justice, it is necessary to say about one more victim of the same terrorist act, about another fighter who also died for the Donbass. This is the associate and security guard of Motorola, who, together with him, entered the ill-fated elevator, Eugene Gadliya, a native of Abkhazia, the call sign of Gog. When Eugene was 11 years old, his family moved to Donetsk from war-torn Abkhazia. After many years, the war found him there. He, together with Pavlov, fought for Slavyansk, received his first wound. He participated in the battles of Ilovaisk, where he was also wounded. Then he became a security guard for Motorola and was there until that fateful evening. “Goge” was 35 years old. Motorola died at the age of Christ - 33 of the year.
Huge crowds that came on October 10 to the building of the Donetsk Opera and Ballet Theater, clearly demonstrated to the world the position of the residents of Donbass: this land grieves for its heroes. And no gloating of Ukrainian neo-Nazis will ever destroy this memory., but only cause righteous anger.
