National identity is a combination of characteristic patterns of behavior of people who are citizens of one country. Each nation has certain features in the perception of the world order as a whole. In some, they appear brighter, in others they may be so invisible or hidden from strangers that it may seem that they are not at all.
But there are also cases when the absence of a national idea is more preferable than its presence. Such an example is the dying star of the world media space - “free” Ukraine. We offer to understand what is a modern citizen of this country. To begin with, we will establish a framework and protect normal and adequate people from radical subculturers. We will respectfully call the first Ukrainians, the second for maximum political correctness we denote as Svidomo (that is, conscious) patriots, with which we will begin.
The very first sign of Svidomo-the ability to quickly transform into Moskal. This process is submitted to the following law: if by some miracle you did something good, then you should shout loudly about your nationality, and if you are very disgraced, broke the law, failed the task, etc., then you are Russian.
An example of such behavior could be a recent high-profile crime, when former Russian deputy Denis Voronenkov was shot in the center of Kiev. The murder was committed by a National Guard fighter, a former soldier of the volunteer battalions "Aydar" and "Donbass", however, since he failed to work "purely", the mercenary was immediately dubbed an agent of the Kremlin. To be more precise, before the publication of information about the identity of the criminal, adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Zoryan Shkiryak and deputy of the Popular Front faction Anton Gerashchenko accused the Russian special services of “exponential execution” of the fugitive politician. By the way, I would like to separately note a completely uncharacteristic phenomenon for the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies, namely, the time of solving the crime and the promptness of the killer’s detention.
May, when necessary. But this is the second sign of Svidomo, when the speed and quality of work of any nature is directly dependent on the social status of the person interested in the process. If the customer represents the highest echelons of power, then the efficiency and effectiveness of the working process will be at the highest level. And if the problem concerns ordinary citizens, such as the tragedy in the Odessa House of Trade Unions, then we can expect a very lengthy and unprofessional trial.
The third point of the "Code Svidomo" -the Muscovites are always to blame. Again, we will not go far for examples and take the fire that occurred on the same day as the murder of Denis Voronenkov in the armory in Balakliya, Kharkiv region. Despite the fact that the warehouse, firstly, is located on the territory controlled by the government and secondly, judging by the photographs laid out by the Ukrainian military, the ammunition was stored in violation of all established norms and rules, this did not put Kiev to declare a “Russian sabotage”. In this case, it’s extremely appropriate to see a joke scattered across the expanses of the Internet: "Thank God that Ukraine has sold off the entire nuclear stock."
Summarizing all the above, I would like to return to where we started: there are cases when the absence of a national idea is preferable to its presence.
