“To reverse the dangerous tendency”: a memorial to the victims of Stalin’s repressions will open in the autumn

104
Honoring Joseph Stalin in Russia is growing. The popularity of the totalitarian leader is seriously concerned about the sculptor George Frangulyan. He is creating in Moscow a memorial dedicated to the victims of Stalin’s repressions. According to Frangulyan, his efforts will help "reverse the dangerous trend."



Sculptor Georgiy Frangulyan


The growing popularity of Joseph Stalin is disturbed by the sculptor George Frangulyan. He creates a memorial dedicated to the victims of Stalin’s repressions, reports "InoTV" with reference to the CBC report. The artist expects to "reverse the dangerous trend."

At the corner of a busy intersection, the sculptor erects a monument to millions of Soviet people executed, starved or expelled by Stalin. He carved hundreds of human figures, embodied in a common monument, which received a single name - "The Wall of Sorrow".

“They are tears,” comments the figures of the Frangulyan Memorial. “They are the victims, the forms that convey tragedy.”

“I think this [the popularity of a totalitarian leader from the past] is a real catastrophe,” Frangulyan believes. - This is a tragedy of the people. I believe that it is necessary to have such a monument as a guarantee that this will never happen again. ”

“It’s like a scythe of death that passed through people,” Frangulyan explains the curved form of the memorial.

Over the years, an increasing number of Russians forget about the "atrocities" of Stalin, reports "CBC". Surveys of the Levada Center show that a dictator is being rehabilitated in Russia. According to the director L. Gudkov, in the 1989 survey, Stalin occupied the last line in the list of the most significant Russians, typing 12%. But in April of 2017, he headed the list by typing 38%. “When Putin came to power, the repressions were pushed aside, and instead the image of a great leader appeared,” Gudkov notes. According to him, the memory of Stalin plays into the hands of the Russian government, because it connects the Russians with the time when Russia was "an indisputable superpower."

“CBC” also reminds that at the event held in the Crimea in the weekend, the Night Wolves biker club paid tribute to Stalin: while performing motorcycle stunts, the person portraying Stalin waved his hand to the crowd.

Stalin's twins in Moscow are doing business on Red Square. T-shirts with the image of the dictator are sold with a bang.

"CBC" does not find parallels for the glorification of the dictator. For example, it is impossible to imagine that tourists in Berlin were photographed with Hitler's doubles.

Recall the installation of the “Wall of Sorrow” high relief started in Moscow at the intersection of the Garden Ring and Academician Sakharov Avenue 6 August.

Frangulyan’s project was chosen among the 336 projects submitted for the competition to create a monument to victims of political repression. The opening of the monument will take place on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repressions (October 30).

Honored Artist of Russia Georgy Frangulyan is a famous sculptor, there are many monuments of his work in Moscow: a monument to B. Okudzhava, I. Brodsky and others.

Works of the artist are located in the Tretyakov Gallery, in the State Russian Museum, in other museums and private collections, including abroad.

      Hypocrites just don't want to find parallels. negative Probably not the Soviet people under the leadership of Stalin built a powerful state, probably not Stalin was the chairman of the GKO during the Great Patriotic War, probably not our people recall now: - "Oh, Stalin is missing now" yes

        According to him, the memory of Stalin plays into the hands of the Russian government,
        Quite the opposite! Nostalgia for the Stalin era was caused by the fact that under I.V. Stalin, in principle, that chaos of thieves, that open plunder of the state that was observed under the current regime, was impossible. Therefore, the comparison is clearly not in favor of the current rulers. With all my ambiguous attitude towards Stalin, he was a master in the state, and not a temporary owner. Therefore, the people are sad about those times when there was order. True, the negative was immeasurable, but now is not about that ...

        I can’t talk about everyone, but most of these conversations about the "Stalinist repressions" are tired, unpleasant for the reason that -
        firstly, the repressions were "Leninist", it was from him that this vileness began;
        secondly, 90% of all cases in those days are pure criminality;
        it was not for nothing that things were destroyed and falsified in order to mislead many, like this sculptor with a narrow outlook and intellect.

        And this stupid “wailing wall” attempt to leave your name in history, but which one?

        And, perhaps most importantly, everything that happened to Russia and its people in the twentieth century was allowed by the Lord for many sins. And without the will of God, "let not a single hair fall from his head."

        RUSOPHOBAM

        For you, my words are the murmurs of Akum,
        And to your I have no trust for a long time.
        Behind me is Boris and Gleb, the sufferings of Habakkuk,
        Behind you is the gloom and ringing of silver coins.
        The law of double bottom and mutual responsibility -
        A trap for a fool, a blind man and a simpleton.
        Behind me is the Russian flag and the ancient banners
        Behind you - meanness, slander and eternal "chk".
        I have no voice, but Mother Russia
        And her past is still with me.
        May I be Ivan, drunk and open,
        But rests on me and the world, and the globe of the earth.

      The fight against Stalin’s memory is nothing more than a fight against criticism of the current situation in the economy, politics and power in Russia. Yes, Stalin was not a democrat and liberal, but it was precisely this that allowed, predetermined his actions to develop and strengthen the USSR, and provided preparation for the country for the impending great massacre, in which the fate of Slavic civilization was decided. And the fact that the union survived in the early years of the war, that it managed to restore industry during the evacuation to the east, defeated the fiercest enemy - all of Europe and entered Berlin is precisely the result of the lack of democracy and liberalism ...
      The constant protrusion of one side of Stalin - the victims of repression - leads the people, state, and society away from finding out the reasons that led the USSR, Russia to collapse in the early 90s, and it does not allow to determine the role of each individual individual - the representative of the fifth column in the destruction of Russia, to determine those external forces that, using the current internal problems of the country, shook the state and fed the fifth column with money, resources, advisers ...
      You can’t follow the fifth column and allow it to renounce the history of Russia, to foul the memory of the great creators of Russia. Stalin is a great builder of Russia, and it is not surprising that the people of Russia, remembering the sacrifices that were made during his reign, accept these sacrifices after the great deeds of the arrangement of Russia and erect a monument to Stalin in spite of the cries and desire of the Liberty’s fifth column of Russia .

      "People-State-Fatherland" - this is the slogan of every Russian patriot. Rallying a people, a strong state, capable of protecting itself from external and internal enemies, creates conditions for the prosperity of the Fatherland.

        The repressions by which liberals revel so much and their masters are so insignificant that they are constantly exaggerated, right down to the grotesque. But here's the strange thing: THE SOVIET UNION existed surrounded by hostile states in which there were fascist coups with the destruction of their own citizens. By the way, statistics on the number of executed in many countries were not kept. And all is well. These countries have officially conducted terrorist operations against the SOVIET UNION and also seem to be all right.
        That's how as soon as in the SOVIET UNION they began to destroy enemies so immediately howling to heaven. Today, cautious attempts to introduce rational thieves into power are already provoking angry reactions * of the general public *. It turns out there must be untouchables in terms of theft.
        In the United States, there is the death penalty, including for children, and political prisoners and secret prisons, and people are stealing all over the world, and for Democrats they are a light in the window. Here's how you can turn your mind? Among those who went astray on the basis of * anti-Stalinism * and Prof. Essor, acadEmics, i.e. this can’t be attributed to a low level of education.

          My grandfather, a fighter pilot, was innocently repressed recorded at the memorial. The bottom line was that when he was shot down, he fell behind the front line, was picked up by partisans, they were brought to our rear, but in the hospital he was subjected to an inquiry by the authorities, not arrested. I never spoke about this in a negative way, since the procedure is standard and everyone understood everything perfectly. So, it’s filthy to see on one page the Memorial garbage dump in the ranks of the repressed my heroic grandfather and freaks from the UPA, forest brothers and other riffraff. This is how the lists of the repressed are compiled with us, and this is how the numbers of millions of people tried by the "bloody gebe" are taken.

    The people will respect Stalin, you can’t deceive him. Stalin is the best leader of our state in his entire history. And Frangulyan is a half-fool who evaluates Stalin’s personality one-sidedly. He is an ambiguous figure, you can not see it through the prism of black or white. Most of his actions were determined by circumstances and time.

      Right to the millions, what not to the billions at once? And how many of these millions were traitors to the motherland, criminals, rapists and accomplices to the Nazis, for example? Maybe this entire fraternity should pile the monument separately?
      I honestly don’t understand. I communicate with the Balts at work: Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Ukrainians. So they begin to say for Stalin how bad he is, how many people he killed in the camps (this is probably told to them at school on TV). I ask them, how many people from your relatives or relatives of friends were in the camps? No one knows and cannot give an example of at least one. One Lithuanian says that his grandfather was in the camp for about 10 years, then returned. And why? Because he was SSovets, fell in love with one Lithuanian so much that he stayed in Lithuania. When the Soviet army defeated the Nazis, he was taken to the camp, in principle, for the cause. This Lithuanian is not angry with the Soviet regime, he understands that his grandfather spent time in the camp.

      This sculptor does not sculpt at his own expense, but fulfills the “someone’s” order, and therefore “it” worries that his work will not be in demand, and that due to the growing popularity of Stalin, his fee will be cut. Whose order is it? - everything is simple here, representatives of a detachment of an ordinary Russian liberota, a family of reptiles. So he does not evaluate the personality of Stalin, but the filling of his pocket.

    Why are you lying ... you’ll immediately go to billions ... after that, the value of the article drops sharply. am

    I do not deny excesses under STALIN but to hang all dogs on him is a lie ... an impudent and frank lie.

    Who denounced the neighbors ... STALIN or what?
    Who most of all beat himself in the chest drowning his neighbor in shit, too, STALIN or what?
    If you delve into the documents in some departments, selfish interest was elevated to the rank of state policy.
    When some leaders, in order to report on achievements, began to literally clean their environment by sending them straight to prison ... it was largely these cadres who were engaged in fraud to please the authorities in KREMLIN.

        If so ... then the activities of Gorbachev and Yeltsin are many times more destructive and destructive for our people and it is just right to erect a monument to the dead and injured people from the perestroika and reforms of these unfortunate leaders.

        Stalin left behind a powerful country ... he gave at least people hope for a better future ... and it was not his fault that the descendants then pissed off everything that the country achieved during the years of his reign
        And what did these reformers give? ... the oligarchs and the unemployed market ... hehe heh the greatest achievement of modern CHUBAIS.

        None of the modern leaders reaches the level of STALIN even the GDP ... they are too small.

    “The terror unleashed by Lenin and Trotsky from the beginning of the revolution did not stop for a minute. But as soon as, starting at the age of 37, the snickering leaders of all levels, mainly Jews, went to the camps in jamb, then the world press made a deafening noise. ”
    In 1937 (and those that followed), it was precisely those who were engaged in organized mega-genocide in Russia over the past twenty years. This is exactly what angers the anti-Stalinists! Those who organized the year 1917 in Russia cannot forgive even the long-dead Stalin that he was able to get out of their control Russia so successfully conquered by them. Moreover, Stalin also planned to destroy Marxism itself. The latter was already a bust.

      It is not only with you. Many have the same. Relatives before the revolution of 1917 were priests, officers, and prosperous with their mill. No one was repressed, and was not convicted. True, the mill was taken to the state’s income, but I didn’t hear what they were convicted of, although I asked, it’s interesting to me. The Soviet authorities did not touch the abbot of the church; officers continued to serve in the Red Army as officers. So I do not believe in the "evil Stalinist regime and the tyrant Stalin."

        In the late 90s, he lived in Stalin in a city with a population of about 70 thousand for a couple of years, not in the center and there were not a few houses, among the neighbors of the party nomenclature, functionaries and their relatives did not meet, a neighbor in the stairwell - Uncle Lyosha - a locksmith with local factory. I spent my childhood in the "Khrushchev" (my parents still live in it), so I’m reasoning from personal experience ;-)

      Why the State Department? EBNovsky center also built the State Department?

    Most of all about the repressions of Stalin, the God-chosen shout, as about a holocaust. The goal is to equate Stalin and Hitler. Both dictators, both cannibals. But Hitler created the Jews with Jewish money. Stalin fought with Trotsky and his minions, hence he is bloodthirsty. I agree, there were many innocents, but who led the process? And again we stumble upon the chosen ones. The purpose of such actions, the substitution of history, it will happen neither today nor tomorrow, but the God-chosen ones will strive for this.

    Stalin doesn’t sleep peacefully with our, and other rulers, they do not hold out, because in fact they are all six, even Putin is forced to limit himself in his decisions, and he cannot punish anyone, even if he does not follow his orders, only in Nizhny Tagil the director was enough, but Vasiliev was too tough even for him. So they all hate together Stalin, and not some panties that spoil. Stalin showed a new way of development of society, he opened the door for us, only not everyone managed to enter it, the part that was frightened of the light ahead closed it after his death.

    On the Internet, and in letters, it is customary for you to speak with those who are despised or, at least, from whom you distance yourself.

    so distance yourself from me and the farther the better, dad, damn it!

    It’s not customary to say that on the Internet.

    As long as these Khrushchev’s miscarriages rule the ball, there won’t be anything good in the country! Where were all these "truth-tellers" when Judas sold out the tagged USSR in bulk and in parts. And the drunk continued under the strict guidance of liberoids and advisers from behind the hill.

    If not for these repressions, it is still unknown
    how Germans would be met in 1941.
    So let this rodent sculpt its crafts from shit and sticks in his homeland in Georgia.

      well, yes, maybe then there would have been 1,2 million Soviet citizens — accomplices of the Nazis, KONR, ROA, and then the forest brothers, OUN, UPA and others

    “With Putin coming to power, repression was pushed aside, and instead the image of a great leader appeared”

    And why then does the national loot of the Yeltsin-billionaires bring down the GDP?

    According to a certificate prepared in February 1954 by Prosecutor General R. Rudenko, Minister of Internal Affairs S. Kruglov and Minister of Justice K. Gorshenin, for the period from 1921 to February 1, 1954 he was convicted of counterrevolutionary crimes by the OGPU collegium, “triples "The NKVD, by the Special Meeting, the Military College, the courts and military tribunals of 3 people, including 777 people were sentenced to death. This is for thirty-one years. This is the end of the Civil War, this is the era after it. This is four years of a terrible war with Hitler. This is the period after the Second World War. This is a fight against gangs of Bandera and forest brothers. This includes Berry and Yezhov, and other bloody executioners. Here are the traitors of Vlasov. Here are deserters and looters. Self-shooters. Alarmists. Participants in the gangster underground. Nazi accomplices who shed blood. This is the "Leninist Guard", which destroyed a great country to the joy of the enemies of Russia. Here Zinoviev and Kamenev. Trotskyists in this number. Figures of the Comintern. Traitor and traitor Tukhachevsky, who was about to arrange a military coup. The executioner Bela Kun, thousands of drowning officers in the Crimea with stones on their necks. A multifaceted figure, polysyllabic. If you divide the total number of executed by the number of years, you will get less than 380 people a year. A lot of? Of course. But let’s not forget what years it was. And there are no tens of millions executed. This is exactly a deliberate lie. Remember this figure: 642 people. That was. It is necessary to know and remember

      it is officially condemned, but there were still
      4 million who have been dispossessed. About half of them are sent to special settlements or to camps, the rest are simply deprived of property with a ban on living in their village, but without exile to Siberia. About another one and a half million deported Kalmyks, Chechens, Balkars, Greeks, Latvians, etc. Thus, about 9,3 million residents of the USSR were directly affected for political reasons. At the same time, the victims of the Red Terror of the Civil War (hostages shot without trial) are not taken into account, since no one has established their exact number due to the characteristics of the terror itself.

      For comparison, under fascism in Italy, for the entire period of Mussolini’s rule, 4,5 people were convicted of political affairs and 9 people were executed, while Italy, too, was going through difficult times.

      Thanks to Stalin, the USSR lived for so long.

      as much as 70 years !!! And then thirty of them were recognized as not quite communist, to say the least.

    As the saying goes, give Caesar, Caesar.
    God grant Stalin's lovers that they would be sent in exile, along with their families. Let them know the joys of great power. And then let them prove that they are not enemies of the people.
