Military Review

On the battlefield and in the international arena ...

20
February 20 turned out to be a sad day when we received two terrible at once news from battles on distant frontiers. In the morning, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported the death of four military advisers in Syria (the tragedy itself took place on February 16). In the evening, the Russians were shocked by the news of the premature death of Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vitaly Ivanovich Churkin.


On the battlefield and in the international arena ...


It would seem that these are different events - the death of the military in a war zone and the death of a diplomat in the workplace. But these people are united, above all, by the service for the good of the Motherland. The service they carried away from her, in those areas where it was especially hot. And in the United Nations recently there have been such heated fights that the arena of an international organization looked like a battlefield.

The soldier needs an incredible courage not to retreat under a hail of bullets, to be among the gaps, in solid smoke. A diplomat - to speak in support of his country, knowing that here, in this hall, almost everyone is opposed to it. To challenge the global "sharks". And you can not say for sure where you need more courage.

However, four Russian servicemen did not die in direct clashes with anti-Syrian militants, but during the terrorist attack. According to the Ministry of Defense, their car was blown up on a radio-controlled land mine, when the Russians escorted a convoy of Syrian troops from the airfield in Tias to the city of Homs. Two more Russian soldiers were injured as a result of the explosion.

As for the death of Vitaly Churkin, then, according to official data, he died due to heart disease. But many doubt it, considering in what lair the deceased was and worked. Of course, it is too early to accept or reject various conspiratorial versions, but this is suspicious: lately, Russian diplomats have been dying too often.

Such different corners of the planet: Syria and New York. Exhausted in the battle with terrorism, the Middle Eastern country suffered enormous losses - and the city was full of food, modern, glittering with neon advertisements ... The road between Tiyas and Homs is semi-desert, where the land is already generously soaked in blood, where a cunning mine can wait at any point. And - the hall shining with cleanliness, equipped with the best equipment, from where broadcasts are conducted to the whole world, where world problems are discussed. And we have to fight among the sands, among documents and journalists. And death - it equally lurks both there and there.

Even if we discard all the conspiracy and difficult-to-prove versions - all the same, the death of Vitaly Churkin looks exactly like a death in a battle. We all saw how in recent years he endured the most real persecution. Harassing Russia, which I took upon myself, which I certainly took to heart. It is clear that not every heart will withstand several months of such a load, and only a few years ...

Unfortunately, we once again see the mockery of death. And the “intelligent” mockery - in the same hall, where Vitaly Ivanovich’s clear voice sounded until recently. And - perfect wild mockery in social networks and even in real life - in front of the Russian consulate in Odessa (a city built under the leadership of Russian Empress Catherine II). Both there and there over the death of a citizen of the Russian Federation were mocked by representatives of the same country, poisoned by falsely understood “European values” (however, another question is how Europeans themselves understand these values ​​today).

The fact remains a fact: while even representatives of the United States and Western Europe express condolences to Russia in connection with Vitaly Churkin’s passing away (and even Samantha Power, with whom he entered into heated debates), is a country “aspiring to Europe” missed the chance to "put a pig." Ukraine has blocked an official statement on behalf of the UN Security Council regarding the deceased permanent representative of the Russian Federation. As a result, the document was adopted in a different format: as a statement to the press. "Council members mourn after, who spent more than forty years in the diplomatic service of Russia, headed the country’s mission to the UN for more than ten years, and to whom 21 February would have turned 65 years“, - said in this statement.

The official representative of the Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, sharply criticized the actions of the representatives of Ukraine: “They can’t do anything good, only they spoil everything, including themselves».

The actions of the “maydauns” at the Russian consulate in Odessa are completely something beyond: the bottom has fallen even lower. It is disgusting to comment on the words of the notorious Lyashko. But you need to say about other people, even there, in Ukraine. And in the same Odessa, and in Kharkov there were those who were not afraid to bring flowers to the buildings of the Russian missions. Although we remember how people who expressed grief over the crash of the Russian plane in Sochi, were subjected to real persecution by right-wing radicals.

Yes, the battle goes on not only in the mined desert, not only in the UN headquarters and not only at the buildings of the Russian consulates. The main battle is in people's minds. Some have already lost this battle, even while remaining alive and seemingly victorious. And others - win it, despite the pain of loss, despite the fact that we are persecuted together with the Fatherland and with the abused justice. And win thanks to people like the fighters against terrorism who fell on the fronts. And such as Vitaly Churkin, who defended the position of his Motherland to the last breath

        From Strelkov, an unimportant commander, in Slavyansk he laid down a civil militia without measure and without need. The illiterate design of checkpoints, the demonstrative ignorance of the then unified center of defense, and, as a result, fell into the hands of Nesmyan. It turned out two boots of steam. And full of holes ....

    It doesn’t matter why Vitaly Ivanovich died, they poisoned him with anti-Russian poison or he didn’t calculate his strength, the main thing is that many of us sincerely respected him and wished him all the best for his everyday battle for our Russia. We will remember him as a patriot and an outstanding diplomat. One summer, with friends, they were sitting on the shore on a night fishing and talking about him and other famous diplomats and admired his restraint, tact and waited for him to finally retire and have a human rest and would like to invite him to go fishing Ural. But fate decided differently.

    If we evaluate it sensibly, now Russia is practically in diplomatic isolation and only the veto is our real ally.

    Quote: Elena Gromova
    Ukraine has blocked an official statement on behalf of the UN Security Council regarding the deceased permanent representative of the Russian Federation. As a result, the document was adopted in a different format: as a statement to the press.

    Give an example of such statements.
    There are actually two options for such a statement about sympathy. Or it does the chairman of the Security Council or it is done in the form of a press release. The second option "
    At the moment, there is not a single statement by the chairman of the UN Security Council on the death of diplomats from other countries. Basically, the chairman’s statements are an instrument to focus the attention of the international community on such issues as armed conflicts in different parts of the world, non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and human rights (women, national minorities, etc.).
    I have the impression that the trick with Zakharova’s words is truly amazing, and the Russians will not satisfy anything in their “thirst for revenge”! I quote the words of the President of the UN Security Council
    “Dear colleagues, as you know, the Council yesterday issued a press statement in connection with the death of the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN. As President of the Security Council, I suggest honoring the death of Ambassador Vitaly Churkin with a moment of silence,” Yelchenko said.
    After a moment of silence, a representative of the Russian delegation said that Russian diplomats "are grateful for the kind words and expressions of condolences in connection with the irreparable loss that Russia suffered." Then other members of the Security Council began to express their condolences.
    In general, Ukraine acted in the same way as everyone did, presiding over the UN Security Council. Personal polit. ambitions did not sleep here. Of the two options, we chose the one that everyone had chosen before her.
    It seems to me that if it were otherwise, then Zakharova would have written on Facebook that Ukraine blatantly violated the rules! And a five minute hate would have taken place anyway. Bravo Facebook and Zakharova.
    RT generally wrote
    Security Council members unanimously supported the press statement, but the official document was rejected (it’s like a press statement has just been issued, and Ukraine is accused of blocking the President’s statement)
    You will decide in the end what you blame Ukraine and Elchenko
    а- in that he blocks himself (he is the Chairman and he is the Permanent Representative of Ukraine)
    б- that the Security Council has chosen the standard procedure (minimum of the last 10 years) and he added a moment of silence
    в- no matter what, the main thing is to blame Ukraine, because it is "bad", and Facebook will not lie.

    You can also record everyone in any camp, only it is not known how we will share. It is known only about one determined
    "They brought a little empathy to the envoy, were surprised at the flowers, talked with cotton grandmothers about The Hague," said activist Victoria Siberia.
    Flowers are not signed. But we are all "Bandera" ...

      Ukraine refused to accept the document in memory of V. Churkin as a document on behalf of the leadership of the UN Security Council. As a result, a press statement was made. Unfortunately, if the document is adopted in the first format, then it is stored in archives. Press statement - not saved. That’s the whole difference (although, of course, in the Internet era, we, the users, will keep it, though not on the UN website).
      About Odessa. I do not know what you are trying to prove. Well, look at the garbage that these "activists" brought. Not flowers that lie on the fence, namely, garbage. In your photo you can not see what is written on the posters, but yours boasted of these inscriptions. If you are objective, then tell me - are normal people doing this? Bring on the day of death - is it?

        Elena, as always, thank you very much for the article.
        And at the expense of what kind of garbage brought local Odessa haters Churkina and other Natsik read here.
        The inscriptions on their posters read:
        "We grieve that you did not live up to the trial" and so on

          “A supporter of justice and a friend of the Serbian people. Rest in peace, Vitaly Churkin, ”reads the banner.

          The meeting ended with a crushing victory of the Red Star with a score of 75:58.

          Vitaly Churkin died in New York on February 20 the day before his 65th birthday. According to The New York Post, the diplomat’s health condition worsened due to “heart problems,” he was taken to one of the hospitals in serious condition, but the doctors could not save his life.

          Churkin served as Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN since 2006.
