Notes of the Colorado Cockroach. Strange city of Vinnitsa on the UPA birthday

35



Hello to you long and comfortable, dear readers!

For a start, I will allow myself to philosophize a little for my life. Because life is someone's diagnosis, 100% is lethal, and someone is a very exciting process, the essence of which is that it continues with varying success until death.

I am completely on the second side, and life, even in such an, to put it mildly, original place, like Ukraine, also has its interesting sides. And it is precisely these aspects that I try to teach you, because it is easy to laugh at our ... in power you can do it without me.

Although, of course, fun with me.

I want to immediately reply to the reader who Rotmistr60. I do not commemorate my devoutly without cause or with him, but in this way I pay tribute to my rear service. Let's call it that, since I climbed into the trench of the information war. For without the rear no army is good for anything. And the Cockroach, who has worked all his life in the field of primary school education, is my editor, who cuts not texts, but fat. And without it, by the way, there would be much more criticism addressed to me.

But I think there will be a time for everything, and the day will come when it will be possible to speak without a visitor.

In the meantime, I continue my provincial holidays, all slowly approaching the final destination of my journey - Chornobyl. Why and why - let it be a little secret for now, but I guarantee that there will be enough interesting things. The main thing to be there on a particular day, when there will be ... It will be, in short. We do not run.

So, Vinnitsa. And not just Vinnitsa, but on the day when all the shy were celebrating 75 years of creating their beloved UPA.

Here, it would seem, a city, some 4 hours from Kiev, and how they live! Do not live - suffer!

Can you imagine, they do not have Bandera Square! And there is no avenue Bandera! And the streets. Even Bandera's alley is not!

And there is no monument either ... How can you live like this, after visiting Lviv, I don’t understand. After all, as they say in the same packaged? "Bandera come, order put things in ...".

Do not wait. Themselves somehow cost. And by the way, Vinnitsa is a very, very nice city. True, without Bandera. But now there is Petlyura. Opened the other day. If someone says what the difference is, then there is a difference, albeit a small one.

Now Petlyura is sitting on a bench near the train station.

Notes of the Colorado Cockroach. Strange city of Vinnitsa on the UPA birthday


As for the celebration of the anniversary of the UPA, here, too, did not work out very colorful. Packed gathered, but the eternal pofigizm residents of Vinnitsa wiped out all their tricks. It cannot be said that there was no people, after all the center, and even on a day off. Kashi from the field kitchen, of course, tasted everyone who sufficed, on pobabahalovo, arranged by reenactors also looked.

It is clear that all this related to the events of the beginning of the 20 century, when for some time the UNR existed - the Ukrainian People's Republic, which was headed by Petlyura. And the capital, as you know, was in Vinnitsa.

Modestly, everything went well, about fifty fighters of unsuited armored cars and a cannon. Marketed, shot, and all. And then, until evening, the characters in the uniforms of those times roamed the city to varying degrees of patriotic stature.



Marsh UPA did not take place. Apparently, poorly prepared.



Here they would have placed ads on urns.

I looked at the preparation of packaged heads, it became boring, to be honest. Well, almost like you have there Putin said, "boring, guys."





Such drawings are messed up, you know ...



This is not someone else, but judging by the numbers and frills, the capital overseer has arrived. Well packaged, say nothing.

But it was noon, but there was no action.







There wasn’t enough for the patriotic quest, especially those who wanted to, but they approached the kitchen. But I went to hang out and strain my ears to where the people were more. That is, as everyone already understood, to the market.







I will not be long to tell and show, but the market in Vinnitsa - all markets market! Soulful in every sense.

Then he went to wander around the city, and did not cease to be surprised. A pretty city, and what's remarkable, in historical parts on the houses of memorial plaques are simply numerous. In Kiev, such would not be hanging.





Funny such a little house, and immediately it is clear who is the boss in it.







And in Vinnitsa many monuments. The fact that there is no Bandera is, of course, an omission, but the Vinnitsa authorities are working hard on this. Already three years. There are debates and discussions about where the monument can be pushed or which municipal object can be named after it. A serious approach, I think, will end at the pace of years after eleven.

In the meantime, all other monuments are.



Maxim Gorky, for example, and surprisingly.



Vinnitsa policemen.



Memorial complex of Glory. This is in honor of the participants of the October Revolution, the Civil War and the Great Patriotic War.



Here is a huge memorial cemetery, from 1917 to 1945 years.



Monument Heavenly hundred. Yes, the square bears the same name.

There are also Afghan soldiers, poets, sculptors, architects, the doctor Pirogov, the partisan Bevz, and even Pope John Paul the Second. And all are. None has yet been touched. For Ukraine - a paradox of some kind.



And this is a monument in honor of the creation of the Ukrainian Air Force. They put it in 1998. Symbolizes the fact of the creation of the Ukrainian valiant Air Force. They also wanted to erect a monument on the embankment in honor of the creation of the Ukrainian fleet, and on the outskirts of the city - in honor of the army. But they didn’t. Signs are not very successful ...

About leaving the city. Naturally, I left Vinnitsa and headed to a place that not so long ago so attracted the attention of the entire public. Namely - to the warehouses, where, according to media reports, there was a huge badabum.



If someone in the know, he will not let him lie: this is the very gas station with which so many reports from the scene. And in the little forest exactly behind it, those warehouses are located exactly.

Les, I tell you, is still a pleasure in terms of excursions. Do not have to be a cockroach, and the bear.







But you can wade, and look out at the corner of your eye to see if everything is ruined there or not.



But not all! Though it was a boom, though it was burning, but the valiant all coped with the zrada and turned it into a very peremog. For overcame and coped.

Although there is no particular faith, the train still rolls along the warehouses.





Well, where are the cars, there are ours. We talked. But what is the conversation there ... One lack of culture and native Russian expressions of the type ...!, .... !! and .... !!!. The essence of all foul language boiled down to the fact that "to know what ... it would arrange everything, arms would be pulled out, and legs would be left. They would be tied to the train, and it’s not easy to run!"

But I found out something. It caught fire and began to vomit in the farthest corner. If you look from the gas station - then in the left. Where, if live people go, they are in shape. Civilians do not live there. That is why, despite the fact that the day fireworks took place to be, no one was hooked from those who would not be worth it.

Yes, someone was resettled, the houses are still empty.





But - whole and without a crack.

Think about what happened in the far corner of the warehouse now. Whether from a dense forest, the saboteurs came from Putin, or from Zakharchenko with Plotnitsky (opinions make up about 30% of the total), or their own things are arranged. Either by hand (30%), or covered up with traces of pilfer (40%).

Why, say, so few believe the obvious? And local clarified. There, in warehouses, well, if not once a month, then once and a half something yes happens. By the way, in the villages of Kalinovka and Gland you for the simple desire to launch fireworks for a birthday or some other holiday will beat the face for a long time and thoroughly. Here, empty women are not welcome, since the conditioned reflex has already been worked out.

And, if the show began, it is urgent to throw in the cellar. Just in case.

And so, the inhabitants of Sal'nik, with whom I spoke, look at it all so calmly, just a lovely sight. They regret one thing - the distant cordon has not yet been cleared of mines, everything is cordoned off and, until now, the trucks take out the unexploded, but flown away. A lot of mushrooms this year.



A lot of mushrooms, he saw. As for my opinion, on the basis of what he saw and heard - well, it wasn’t that strong there, to be honest. The glasses were not broken in the guardrooms at the checkpoint, the towers were not torn down. It was strange, so everything was torn there.

But now the territory is guarded cool. Not a single saboteur will definitely pass now. Both horse and motorized Rangers on quad bikes. For some reason, red. ATVs, not horses, of course.

And the service is, I must say, good. Right here, not to pass, not to pass, and you get caught in the eye - they will take out the whole brain, and even force them to wipe them, if that too much is in the frame.

In short, now our ammunition depots are in safe hands. It would be something to protect, you know.

In general, as you understood, dispersed me from there. But - politely and without any there "mustache to the floor." I, as it were, were not much offended, thank you, I came into a complacent mood after visiting the Arsenal cafe, which is near the road, and decided to give myself a little excursion, since time allowed. I may not come here anymore anymore.

Well, since I am near Vinnitsa, where could my limbs carry me, if not in the Wolf's Lair?

And here, the second time I caught a fair amount of surprise.

I must say that from the "Wolfschans", as you know, nothing left. Everything was blown up during the retreat with German accuracy. And concrete ruins are nothing like this, except for the memory of those who died here during construction. That is, our prisoners of war and local residents.

Today there is a private exhibition. Exhibits which, without exception, you can touch, twist, twirl, take pictures and so on.











Exhibits come here from all over Ukraine. People bring and bring. And all of them the organizers of the exhibition are used and content.





And the level of training of all, from the guide to the guard - it is something! Any guard can replace the guide if necessary. And, on hot days, substitute.



I really liked how the flags are located.





The exhibition is not very large, but the museum will tell you such a story about each exhibit that you simply wonder how they remember it.



Petrol from the "Audi". Working. Absolutely working, but very tired.





I can only regret that in our wicked times you, on the other side of the border, are not just here. Worth it, the Russian spirit is right here, a corner of the story to which we are all used to. Here, those who beat fascism are honored, and not those who were at Hitler's dancers.

Here is such a strange this city Vinnitsa.







And people are very peculiar. On the one hand, Vinnytsia "and yes they went mustache ...", on the other hand - after everything seen in Lviv, it is easier to breathe here. And even you start to believe that all is not so bad. And there is a chance for recovery.

And on this optimistic note, I, perhaps, finish. I really liked Vinnitsa, but I think there will be an equally interesting place ahead. So good mood to you, pep and warm autumn!

        I hasten to note that Bendera are residents of the city of Bender, which is located in the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic, and I do not think that they will like the comparison with executioners, rapists, etc. etc. (I will not list). But accomplices of fascism and national socialism are still called after the names of their "beloved founder" - Bandera. For sim with my respect. hi

        For you, Bendera, accomplices of Hitler, executioners, murderers, rapists and looters, brothers? So you yourself are like that?

        Wash yourself, drink valerian and read the comment again. In 1991 most citizens voted to preserve the USSR, what happened? A bunch of traitors destroyed the country.
        What did Kryuchkov do? Daddy collected from dossiers on traitors.
        The same thing happened with Ukraine. The colleague Tarakan in his articles clearly shows the life of most Ukrainians. Power is in the hands of the descendants of the traitors and executioners of Ukraine, small-town bandits under the external control of the United States and geyroppa.
        Without great blood, it’s impossible to carry the Kiev organized crime group. It remains to wait for evolutionary development — either the country breaks up into regions, or unites around a new leader, who will first close the US embassy and expel all Americans to one, isolate and neutralize the banderlogs. Is it possible? In the near foreseeable future, no. What can Russia do? Help sane Ukrainians in the Donbass.

            The Regulation on the State Emergency Committee was published for several months in all central newspapers, and was written on behalf of Gorbachev. Everyone knew everything. I went on vacation the day before the only time I was asked where I will rest, my address and phone number, although I worked in a purely civilian institution. The GKChP tried to save the USSR, so why did the power pass into the hands of traitors? Because the people wanted change, a better life, not understanding why it was getting worse and worse. I remember how the hangars of the strictly guarded military unit to the top packed with consumer goods, ranging from computers to shoes, were shown on the news. At the same time, the announcer perplexedly reported that the owner of the content hangars was unknown. As in the news and newspapers it was reported about obscure guys in leather jackets and jeans, who drove the trains to siding and plundered them. Our tobacco was full of cigarettes to the top, and the stalls were empty.
            A commodity-money deficit was artificially created.
            All coups and color revolutions are carried out according to Lenin, adjusted for modernity and national-regional characteristics.
            Once again, I wish recovery to the fraternal Ukrainian people, it is a pity that peace will not work.

              Yes, it’s clear that the deficit was artificially created, because it occurred just during the years of the Mecheniy’s rule, the year since 1987, when even meat became a deficit. You can recall the pre-revolutionary Russia during the WWI, when soldiers fought without cartridges, and the gunners did not have enough shells. Although the warehouses had millions of shells and billions of rounds of ammunition, then they fought at Civilian for 4 years with this arsenal and there were still millions of shells, it was not for nothing that in the 30s the military leadership of the USSR did not want to abandon three-inch shells because of their huge stocks in warehouses, although Grabin tried to convince them that in order to improve the ballistics of 76-mm guns, it was necessary to switch to a new, larger sleeve. The schemers Kornilov, Kerensky and Co. artificially created shell and cartridge hunger at the front in order to raise a rebellion among the soldiers.

So many shells were blasted for the WWI fronts and not for the Civil Front (where there were one and a half cannons and 20 shells per battle) .. In addition, there was a logistics problem in 1918-1920 - the railway was completely collapsed, there was no possibility to be removed from warehouses .

    There is no chance of recovery, I do not share the optimism of the author. Vinnytsia since Soviet times was a kind of city - it was a paradise for retired Soviet generals and officers. It was believed that life was successful if it turned out to settle there. The headquarters of the 24th Air Army (shock) was located in the city , one of the most powerful in the Soviet Air Force, when taking the Ukrainian oath, the entire staff of the headquarters and the VA command took the oath together (with rare exceptions) At present, the life of former Soviet retirees is rather dull, pensions are tiny, they can make a remark for a fastened Soviet order, 23 February cannot be celebrated, etc. Instead of the 24VA headquarters, there is the headquarters and command of the Ukrainian Air Force, which are also dull, Repeat Sealy, The city is the estate of Groysman and Poroshenko, for this reason all Lviv eccentricities cannot be there, we must pay tribute, they control the situation, they do not let scumbags. In my opinion, you will not wish the enemy to live in such a paradise as Vinnitsa.

    Hello cockroach! Are you moving to Kiev there? Well, so on the circumferential creep. In the center, the transport is completely stopped. Yeah! The "people" are going to a rally, as everyone gathers, they will go to our BP to transfer demands. Well, how are the requirements? "Create an anti-corruption committee, remove parliamentary immunity ...." quite so peaceful. And why only the National Guard put up? Probably to be admired. They are in brand new uniform, with clubs ... Krasava! will, therefore, maintain order. deputies are already imbued, even their meeting was postponed for an hour of the day. And up to an hour, probably, they will communicate with the people. So you crawl there carefully so as not to trample.

I always read your Notes with great interest, because there is a hope that everything will work out in your area. I have the lowest request for you, if you follow the route to Chernobyl and if the path passes through the village of Oranoye, do not refuse mercy, take a couple of pictures from the place of the former deployment of the 25th chemical protection brigade of the Red Banner Kiev District, which includes In 1988, your humble servant took part in the liquidation of the Chernobyl accident.
