The country that won the fascists today has not just become the venue for a neo-fascist sabbath — it has become a maternity hospital for a new generation of builders of “Russia for Russians”.
You can close your eyes as long as you want and stop your ears, assuring at the same time that what is happening today on the ruins of Ukraine does not matter for Russia - "Our Crimea, Donbass has defended, let the neighbors understand the rest - there are no ours there."
There is. Most of the Donbas militia "TAM" left parents, wives, children. "TAM" live around 10 millions of pensioners who built our common home, parts of which we were deprived of all against our will. "TAM" live almost 8 millions of children, of whom bring up the new Nazis. Russian Nazis.
Oh yes, in the media sounds the Ukrainian language, dialect, surzhik, gvara. From Kiev they constantly talk about "the struggle of the Ukrainian people against the Russian barbarians." "All civilized humanity rallied in defense of Ukraine against the aggression of Russia."
But this is just normal - it is agitation and propaganda in its purest form. What everyone should believe in. First of all - living in Russia. If 25 years of separate and peaceful life of the territory of the former USSR was not enough to educate non-Russians, who hate everything Russian - from Russia and the Russian language to the jersey - then 20 bloody years are also needed. The main thing - Russia - do not bother. And the assassins who swallowed the blood will raise a new generation.
The regiment of special purpose MIA "Azov". An organization whose neo-Nazism made even the US Congress officially stipulate the refusal of official assistance of this part. But it is - officially.
But in reality, the National Corps, one of the branches of Azov, is directly supervised by the Americans through Roman Zvarych (Zvarych), who was born in the United States and sent to Ukraine in 1991 for control. For a long time he worked as Minister of Justice, was a deputy.
And the future punishers of "Azov" were created in Kharkov. First of all, from football fans, who zigovavshih on the streets already under Yushchenko. Russian-speaking and Russian Kharkov. A city where Ukrainian speech is rarely heard through 25 years after its stubborn planting. The organizer of the "Azov", the current deputy of parliament Andrei Belitsky - Russian. Entered in the Maidan without knowledge of the Ukrainian language.
That's exactly Belitsky, not Biletsky, in the Ukrainian manner. It was he who organized the first killings in Kharkov after an armed coup. It was his team that became the backbone of the first battalion. and then the Azov regiment. Formally police, but even armed Tanks. One of the most motivated. well equipped and dedicated to the regime. At the same time, allegedly in opposition. Opposition financed from the state budget. Plus, receiving more than that is enough to support thousands of formally civic activists in regional centers, to have their own party and the "Civil Corps", to train young people in camps provided free of charge by the Kiev regime.
Belitsky himself never hid the fact that the Nazis in Russia were the most loyal allies of the Azovs. Half of the regiment are Russian, incl. and citizens of Russia (the author is personally acquainted with some). Ukraine for them is precisely Little Russia, the center of Russia, from which they hope to reach Alaska and Kalininigrad, reviving Russia, which is above all, under the rule of the Leader of the Nation. Hence, the ridges, and the love of Hitler, and the rest of crazy ideas about the exclusivity of the nation.
The punishers themselves wrote and told about it so many times that it makes no sense to quote them, show photos of Azigans who are signatures, their bodies in swastikas and SS runes, Nazi flags and portraits of Hitler in the location of the piece, etc.
This is a practice of the Nazis since the Second World Practice. Russian traitors unite in the fight against bad power. "Real Russian patriots under the banner of the next Russian liberation army" are being created again and again. In Ukraine, with visible reverence for their Bandera brothers in the struggle for the "purity of the nation", which is "above all".
Yes, the "Azovs" recently abandoned their runes on the emblem, copied from the Nazi society Thule. Yes, they use the Ukrainian language and call the ancient Russian princes Ukrainian. Yes, they even publicly reject Nazism, but they continue to assert that "the nation is nad over use". And yes - the Ukrainian nation.
Here are just the author of these lines talked last since Yushchenko's time with the ideologists of neo-Nazism in Ukraine. And the same glorious lady Fahrion told me personally, "that Ukrainians are real Russians." Therefore, there is no contradiction. Ukrainian neo-Nazis consider the construction of "Ukraine-Rus" (the terminology is still Grushevskogo) only the first stage of the formation of the Ukrainian Russian nation. The second is the inevitable overthrow of the "bad" power in Russia, the expulsion of the non-Russians who seized power in Russia and the restoration of a single common state with its capital in Kiev - the mother of Russian cities.
It is in this spirit that the younger generation is being brought up. With pleasure they are introduced to paganism and Kiev princes, be it Alexander Nevsky, Danila Galitsky or Vladimir Monomakh.
And today they have everything except time. For which, strictly speaking, there is a struggle. Today, many in Russia have already been convinced that the remnants of Ukraine should be forgotten. As in the middle 90-x convinced that the Caucasus should be left alone.
And Tatarstan. And everything beyond the Moscow Ring Road.
And how the Nazi murderers are turned into patriots is best described in an article Yincanas y kalashnikovs: el for spanish El Mundo MICHAEL DRIBERGEN. An article which forced me to write this material. She deserves to read it:
In the ranks - about 80-ti children who stand, stretched at attention and turned to the ear. Having heard their name, they hurriedly take a step forward. They take a pinch of salt from a bowl and throw it into the fire, which is set off by sparks. “So each of you helps to burn the fire of nationalism,” explains the senior counselor Burek, a guy in the ice of the twenty, with a piercing beard and a shaved head. He firmly shakes hands with everyone as a sign of partnership, and small palms of pupils completely disappear in his hands.
"Azov" is a special-purpose unit of Ukrainian radical nationalists, formed from volunteers to fight pro-Russian rebels (organization banned in the Russian Federation - approx. Ed.). For the third year, they have been organizing children's camps like this on one of the tributaries of the Dnieper, near Kiev. After 12 days, children between the ages of 7 and 15 will come out of this category as patriots of the highest rank.
The ceremony with salt marks the opening of new buildings for the “Azovs”, the youth wing of the “Azov”. This is a fenced area, where there are sleeping rooms, dining, climbing wall and even a small beach. Thanks to the state treasury, from which the “patriotic education” is being financed, the nationalists got this camp at their disposal completely free of charge. "Azov" organizes such camps in seven cities, Kiev - the largest.
“You should always be ready to protect your country,” the Azov ideologues instruct the children.
"I see," they answer in chorus.
Kalashnikov assault rifles appear in the children's camp already on the first day. The cockroach, a slim 15-year-old from Kiev with long straight hair, collects it in 15 seconds. “Remove the valve, remove the gas tube. Then we return everything to the place. You need to be very careful: you can never aim at a person if you are not sure that you want to shoot. ”
“Azov” was created after the annexation of the Crimea by Russia in March 2014 of the year. The resistance of the Ukrainian army was not enough to prevent the militias armed and trained by Russia to establish control over the cities in the east of the country. It was then that the volunteer patriots decided to organize battalions funded by wealthy businessmen. In the summer of 2014, Azov knocked out the rebels from Mariupol, and six months later defended this important port city in a battle near the village of Shirokoye. When the battles in the east subsided, the power structure took up the propaganda of nationalism in the country.
Children dressed in military uniforms are built in twos every morning. By order of their instructor Burek, they take off their hats. The cockroach is caused by failure, it takes a step forward. And then everyone puts a fist to his chest and shout loudly in chorus: “Ukraine, the holy mother of heroes, go down in my heart. Let my soul be reborn in you, light up your glory, for you are my whole life, for you are all my happiness. ” Then comes the flag raising. Ukrainian - blue and yellow, with the image of a proud warrior.
Then the program begins more seriously: the first group goes to the lesson storieswhere the exploits of the Cossacks and Kiev princes thousands of years old are glorified. The second group is launched into the obstacle course, where, among other things, it is necessary to jump over fences and climb the rope in pairs, and the third group hones combat techniques and equipment. Having pressed their backs to each other, the guys move, pointing the automatons at imaginary enemies who hid in the bushes. Firecrackers explode, the instructor shouts “Grenade!” The children instantly rush to the ground and carry out the wounded on stretchers.
“We teach children military technicians, we show them what war is,” explains Gold, 28, a summer leader of the Azovs. Like other instructors and students, he uses the combat nickname instead of the real name. At least half of the camp leaders have combat experience; Gold fought in eastern Ukraine for two years: “Children see the war every day on TV, but to share with them the experience of people who have been at the front is a completely different story.”
“We learn how soldiers feel, how they behave at the front,” says Tarakan. “Instructors teach us to survive in the forest or in the desert, provide first aid and military tactics. Such things would have to know everything, ”adds Rostislav, another 14-year-old recruit. “I liked the camp, and I asked my best friend in class if he wanted to come with me. Why in Ukraine there are military camps for children? Because in our country there is a war. "
More than half of the children here are the children of Azov members. It is immediately obvious that they do not belong to the working class: they are well dressed, brought up and, above all, extremely curious. Parents who came to the opening ceremony, delighted with the camp. “In the army, you are not taught to take the body of a comrade out of battle,” says someone’s grandfather, nodding approvingly. “Azov” is very important for Ukraine, says some kind of mother. - Children need to know more about this conflict. We are defending Europe’s outer border. ” “Is it strange for you to see a military camp for children?” Is it probably because there is no war in your country? ”Adds grandfather.
Military education for children and teenagers is not something surprising in Ukraine. During the Soviet era, the children's communist organization, Pioneeria, also raised in its members a love for the fatherland and organized initial military training in summer camps. In high school boys 17 years are three-month fees, where they are trained in military tactics and handling of the Kalashnikov.
In addition, Ukraine traditionally has a strong Scout movement, which is very patriotically oriented in contrast to Western Europe. In the past, it was from the Boy Scouts that they recruited fighters from the anti-Soviet underground. Among the songs that are sung in the camp, there is one, the chorus of which begins with the words “High Muscovites will perish,” although they speak about historical events and did not come up with them in “Azov”.
The organization combines patriotism with extreme militarism. Its ideological center is the “nation”, everything else is somewhat vague. But in no case is it connected with neo-Nazism; the instructors fervently insist on this, refuting what the Russian and some Western media write about them. “I'm a patriot!” Says Gold. “Not a Nazi, not a fascist, I am a patriot of my country.” Last year, "Azov" changed the logo, which was too much like the Nazi "wolf hook". New emblem Gold decrypts as "the intersection of the Ukrainian trident and the Slavic symbol."
Nothing in the camp reminds of this ideology. But the Slavic and pagan traditions, on the contrary, held in high esteem. On the night of the summer solstice a holiday is held. The boys float in a boat on the opposite shore to pick flowers there, from which the girls weave wreaths and put them on their heads. “We teach to love the country in which you live, to respect its nature, because it is stronger than us,” explains Gold.
“Some say that Azov is radical,” adds Gold, not hiding his disappointment from the irresponsibility of his fellow countrymen. - Only 10% of the population participates in the war as soldiers and volunteers. The rest are concerned with pressing issues. They don't care about the future of their children. ”
15-year-old Tarakan claims that “many people think only of themselves. Real Ukrainians are patriots who want to fight for their freedom. If we give up life for Ukraine, our country will be respected, and there will be no more such conflicts as now with Russia. ”
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian government sided with those who think that Azov is too radical. In the autumn of 2014, this regiment, like other volunteer units, came under the authority of the Ministry of the Interior. The command of Azov does not recognize the Minsk agreements signed in February 2015, to reduce the severity of the conflict in the east, and opposes concessions on the part of Ukraine. But in the current state of affairs since the summer of the same year, volunteers cannot participate in hostilities at will.
Making a bet on changing the country, in October last year, Azov established a political party, the National Corps, in whose program the nationalization of strategic enterprises for the country, the legalization of firearms weapons and breaking all ties with Russia. Children's camps are part of work on the “second front,” as Gold calls Azov’s activities, not related to war.
Only for this summer 400 children passed through "Azovets". In addition, during the school year, unit fighters attend elementary schools in Kiev: last spring around 600 schoolchildren spent a whole day mastering military subjects. “If we respect the army since childhood, we will become a strong country,” reflects Gold.
It is in this vein that strict discipline in the camps must be understood. Punishment is part of the program. During the morning building a timid boy of nine years out and put in front of the rest. Instructor Burek explains that he did badly: despite the ban on using mobile phones, he hid it under the pillow
“Should he be punished?” The leader asks the detachment.
“No,” some answer uncertainly.
The instructor repeats the question, louder. “Yes!” Shouts the majority. As punishment, the guilty are deprived of the right to participate in the morning building for the next two days, as well as wear a uniform.
“Many children are not taught to control themselves,” explains Gold. “If their buddies do something bad, they do it too.” In Ukraine, there is a big problem with the education of these guys. Many people use drugs or drink very young. We want to make it happen. ”
“Children need to do something,” says Rostislav (14 years). - Last year I was in such a boring camp that some of the boredom began to smoke. Here it is impossible. The instructors are rigorous and we are busy all day. ”
Despite this, Rostislav is not very much inclined towards nationalism. “I don’t like this prayer to my motherland. Nationalism can lead to fanaticism, and this is bad. If this camp were not so nationalistic, it would be the best in the world. ”
Gold insists that, contrary to the first impression, the camp was not created with the aim of raising child soldiers: “We are not preparing children for combat activities. Our goal is for them to understand what war is. ” “After returning from the camp, I will not take a rifle and start shooting people,” Tarakan says. Her father - a fighter "Azov", and her mother is organizing a military funeral. “Soldiers are dying on both sides of the front line.” Russians are people too; war is terrible because everyone suffers. ”
The cockroach wants to study physical culture and mathematics. Rostislav wants to live in America to learn English; in the future, he sees himself as a translator in Ukraine. “Many of my friends went to Europe. It is hard work and bad conditions. This is bad. Children of our generation should stay in Ukraine. ”
Suddenly, a whistle sounds, calling for an evening building. “Did you see how I run?” Rostislav asks before rushing into the ranks. “My friend and I are the fastest in the run with obstacles!”
Every evening, at sunset, a flag descends and a campfire is lit, around which the children talk and rest. At this time, they will forget about the war, which day after day changes the socio-political landscape of their country. The final chord of the day is an echo of the prayer: “Burn all weakness in my heart. Suppose I do not know fear, do not know what oscillations are. Strengthen my spirit. ”
