Appeal to foreign compatriots: Select the Big Historical Russia

Appeal to foreign compatriots: Select the Big Historical RussiaFROM THE EDITOR. Director of the Institute of Diaspora and Integration (Institute of CIS Countries) Konstantin Zatulin on the eve of the presidential election asked us to place on the site "However" his appeal to compatriots, dedicated to the upcoming presidential elections in the Russian Federation. We are happy to fulfill this request. Even if I had not asked, they would have done it anyway.

Dear compatriots, fellow citizens, living outside the Russian Federation!

March 4 is approaching - the day of presidential elections in Russia. Millions of voters in our country need to decide who to vote for, and, first of all, decide - this is also the question - whether to take part in elections at all. Those of you who are citizens of the Russian Federation face the same choice. Let me say a few words about your understanding of the upcoming.

The future cannot be understood without starting from the past. Twenty years later, it is clear that the collapse of the Soviet Union was in fact a grand tragedy Historical Greater Russia. We did not save the inheritance of our ancestors, did not pass it in its entirety to the next generation. The inevitable consequence was the shredding of our capabilities and ourselves, the sublimation of national self-esteem and a parade of sovereignty against the backdrop of the degradation of the common power and role in the world. The result was an unprecedented separation of the Russian and other peoples of the former USSR, something that many of you are faced with in everyday life.

All these years, the Russian Federation - the largest fragment of the state of the Russian people, continuing the tradition of "Russia - for all who live in it and is faithful to it," - fought for survival. Stumbling, making mistakes, incurring losses and making sacrifices, as was the custom in Russia from time immemorial, Russia began to rise again. By the will of fate, this turned out to be connected with Vladimir Putin, who came to power at the end of the most difficult decade of Russian history since the Time of Troubles XVII and the Civil War of the XX centuries. Under Putin, not only did revenue from the sale of our gas and oil abroad increase. Under him, self-esteem began to return to us. The Russian authorities made real efforts to “collect land” in the modern form of economic union.

This, in my opinion, is the key to understanding the pre-election situation in Russia, the basis for our choice. The active part of the population, urban strata, people with wealth, who have returned or become self-respecting for the first time, want more freedom, more opportunities for themselves, their self-expression. But at the same time, some understand that Russia, inside and out, continues to be in the risk zone, alone defending its interests in the world, while others cannot or do not want to understand it. Showing a “revolutionary” impatience, they swing the branch on which they sit - in plain sight of the great mass of citizens, undeservedly affected by privatization and the so-called “90 reforms”, which gave rise to the most severe social inequality, which will take years to overcome. The election of 2012 of the year, with all due respect to the list of official presidential candidates, becomes a referendum on trusting Vladimir Putin personally: demonstrators and oppositionists, who are so pleased to be shown on your television channels, are tagged only in him, in Putin. And get to Russia.

Is this the first time? These days, we remember the February Revolution 1917 of the year, which occurred in immeasurably worse conditions, but also in an immeasurably more established state. What did the conspirators want, who sought the abdication of Nicholas II, to which exalted crowds on the streets of Petrograd rejoiced at the height of the war? They wanted and enjoyed freedom. Freedom for yourself, by all means and, as it turned out, at any cost. And they set in motion a mass of people for whom the main dream was not individual freedom and the political aspirations of the elite, but equality, land and factory redistribution. How it all ended, what price we all paid for it all, right and wrong, we all know.

The power in Russia always gives up slack when it allows itself to be confused, to give rise to a ghost of dual power, that under Nicholas II, that under Gorbachev, that under the “tandem” Putin-Medvedev. So now, Dmitry Medvedev could not resist in search of popularity in the country and abroad from joining the covert competition with Vladimir Putin. “You don’t need a knife for a bouncer: you sing a little for him - and do what you want with him!” You, and I, have enough reasons for discontent with the current authorities in Russia. Suffice it to say that my former wise colleagues in the State Duma have just once again rolled the bill, which allowed compatriots to apply for citizenship of their homeland without delays and delays. Many of you, I am sure, would never leave or return to Russia if you were satisfied with all of its current conditions and conditions.

But now it’s not a claim to the current Russian government, it’s about the fate of Russia as such. What is happening in the world before our eyes leaves no doubt not only that “the house divided in itself cannot stand,” but also that there are interested in this “persons and performers”. As was the case with Russia in 17 and 91, as it was with Yugoslavia, as it is with Ukraine. I do not just urge those of you who have the right to this, to come and vote on March 4 in the presidential elections of the Russian Federation, as his conscience dictates. I appeal to all of you, without exception, our compatriots abroad, citizens and non-citizens of the Russian Federation: speak in your countries of residence in support of the very act of the will of our people and its results! For it is absolutely accurate, I know in advance what kind of storm in the media, what attempt to shake the situation and bury Russia under the rubble we will have to endure after Vladimir Putin is again elected President of the Russian Federation.

The election of Vladimir Putin will not eliminate the need to fight for better understanding between Russia and its compatriots abroad, and for the best order in Russia itself. But this, I am sure, will be a completely different perspective, and a completely different story.

You need to not only help you to be with Russia, but you must help us so that your countries are with Russia .. .SSSR not return, but to become really good neighbors is quite real

        Once upon a time, it was time to pass a law banning any campaigning six months to a year before any federal elections: so that the people move away from the Kumar campaign and check out everything by himself.

        domokl,
        I agree with you ... but the policy of Russia must be firm, predictable and deeply "allied" for allies and adherents of rapprochement with it ... then not only Russians by nationality will help in its strengthening and revival ...

    I agree one hundred percent. After the victory of the Commander, an attempt will be made to coup and drag Russia into a civil war. This can be avoided if you remember that Moscow and St. Petersburg are not all of Russia. Perhaps, at the end of the elections, it will be necessary to create detachments to protect Russia from the Orangemen paid by the West. The main thing in the regions is to prevent the orange plague from raising its head. And in the capitals, the government must show that it is the power of a powerful world power, so that the Western media do not scream there. Any attempts by the Orangemen to destabilize the situation in the country should be thwarted by all available means. The future of Russia is at stake!

      and the regions are not particularly coy. there, people perceive everything differently. And no one needs any shock in the outback. Because in the capitals they are furious (1917, 1991) from fat, and the whole country has to be blown away.

        I would not say that right now in Siberia, a huge number of people go to the question "would you like to separate from Russia" answer positively motivating this not by the desire to feed Moscow anymore, so that in the Asian part of the country it can explode very much

          I think you are mistaken, the negative attitude towards Moscow and Muscovites was back in Soviet times and it is familiar to many. Separation of Siberia and the Far East from the rest of Russia is a pure provocation. Harsh living conditions, way of life, we can say the Siberian nation. Words M, V, Lomonosova are relevant now.

            I agree with you that Moscow has long been perceived as a pimple sucking the country. I still told my grandfather how Muscovites were spread rot in the army, and right now spread rot. That's why it is a time bomb, in the USSR it was restrained, right now this bomb starts again, if in the USSR the salary was decent and fair everywhere, right now the miner or metallurgist is perplexed, and why he makes 12 hours in the mine or workshop , conducts the most difficult processes, study for 6 years, and some manager in Moscow, who wasn’t heavier than a stapler, doesn’t get several times more. For example, my grandfather, working as an ordinary welder and foreman, received 540 rubles, a huge amount for those times, the office worker received a maximum of 200 rubles. This is the approach of our authorities and allegarchs to a board that is unequal in terms of labor and starts a bomb, which can very strongly detonate under the influence of external forces ...

        I agree completely, especially since there are places where you can rake in to the fullest (the law is taiga, the prosecutor is a bear and there are many hunters)

        Yes, this is complete nonsense. Medvedev will not take a step without Putin. Agnia Barto wrote prophetically about their relationship back in 1957:

        Today we will go to the circus!
        In the arena again today
        With a trained bear
        Tamer Uncle Vova.

        The circus goes numb with delight.
        I laugh holding on to dad
        But the Bear doesn’t dare to growl
        Just sucks a funny paw

        He takes himself by the scrubs,
        Important bow to children.
        How funny in the circus
        With Uncle Vova and the Bear!

            I admit my mistake and apologize. Bought for the similarity of style. But the idea that I wanted to express with this rhyme (that real power remained and remains with Putin, and Medvedev is just an actor playing a "supporting role") I do not refuse.

      There are many of them. For example, officers who have left the armed forces of the Russian Federation after 1992, that is, signed by Grachev, can obtain Russian citizenship without special procedures. They have foreign passports and can vote.

    Foreign compatriots there also know about the elections.
    What kind of support can they provide there - tell a neighbor?
    If Russia could give citizenship "by default" - to those who want it - this would be a step. Towards compatriots.
    And appeals - they are appeals.

    You are wrong Igarr! I would say very significant! In addition to those compatriots who can vote, there are also people marked in their passports "ALIEN" Russians in spirit, faith, mentality at last. And a true patriot of Russia, and longs for his homeland abroad Even if his grandfather told him about this homeland! Maybe for the first time in many years he can do something for her. At least spit in the face, a rabid slanderer against Russia in public. And it is kindly to convince a neighbor that everything they write about our country in their media is not the complete truth, I think he can.

      In Latvia - "stranger", apparently? .. There was not, I do not know.
      And in Asia, who could - left. Those who have nowhere to go and no one to receive local passports. Vote for Russia, respectively, can not. Walking the streets and campaigning is a provocation and incomprehensible behavior.
      And what - they will convince each other of what? That they are Russian - only in their homeland there is no place for them, so what?
      Actually, I spoke out against the stupid calls - what did he, Konstantin Zatulin - sign up for agitators?

    I cited Moscow as an example, because I’m sure that anti-Russian sentiments are more pronounced, it’s only there. The Moscow elite considers Russian residents outside the Moscow Ring Road to be cattle. Nowhere else in Russia do so many people come out with the slogans of overthrowing the current government like in Moscow .

    Although in the light of recent events I see that there are much more honest and decent people, real patriots!

    Russia should not be told, but one strong step should be taken: "declare" the right of all Russians to guaranteed obtaining this very citizenship. At the same time, outline the widest possible circle of persons, that is, not only, for example, servicemen who quit after 1992, but also by the "right of blood" (up to grandmother / grandfather lived in Russia, etc.). And in general, I think that in this case, the most important thing is the desire of a person to become a citizen of Russia, and from this we must proceed in the issue of granting citizenship. And then really, they remember from election to election, they talked and forgot.
