About 400 thousand French, who are holders of Russian loans, or descendants of holders, suddenly demanded that Russia return the royal debts. But we do not owe them anything! This question was raised at the Genoa Conference by the Commissar for Foreign Affairs Chicherin, when the Entente allies complained to us about the Tsar's debts and the debts of the Provisional Government.
We said - well, we recognize these debts of the tsarist government and the Provisional Government, provided that the countries of the Entente, which took an active part in the intervention during the Civil War, would also return the gold reserves that they had stolen and removed from the country’s territory. .
Let me remind you that the armed forces of 14 states took part in the fight against Soviet Russia, they were engaged in total robbery, took out just whole wagons, trainloads, motor ships and hemp, fur, and wood, and coal, and metal, and everything that could be . Let them pay us compensation for the death of more than 111 of thousands of our compatriots, whom they shot. These are established facts, and claims about those killed by the interventionists during the years of the Civil War — at the same time, at the beginning of the 20, were officially filed with the French side as well. But something no compensation from them was not followed!
In 1990, we suddenly recognized these debts, Chernomyrdin signed a document, and he committed not just stupidity, but a crime. His people did not authorize the signing of such agreements, but the fact is that in the 1990s, our entire foreign policy was absolutely colonial. France paid about 400 million euros in debt. The question is - what else do they need? And these guys are acting on the principle - give them a finger, bite to the elbow. If our leaders were well versed in stories, remembered the covenants of our ancestors, they would never allow this kind of thing. Well, Chernomyrdin has left a rich fortune to his heirs, let him out of this state and pay the French. And we do not have to pay them anything. Will cost. Let them pay us compensation - for the invasion of Napoleon.
But the thing is that our so-called "elite" dreams of building an autocratic monarchy, creating an imperial court, arranging balls and all kinds of carnivals - well, what kind of elite is this? Who holds them for the aristocrats? The elite of a normal society is the working class and the working peasantry, which feeds, waters, dresses. And these are impostors, not the elite. The most real criminals who need to prepare a place for balls in Kolyma. They consider themselves to be counts, princes, it happens - but in closed medical institutions with proper treatment passes, nothing terrible.
The heirs of the Russian aristocracy, the so-called elite, really want to restore the monarchy - why? Because they are raving ideas of social Darwinism, they believe that society should be divided into strata, they in this society will constitute a very small, literally meager layer of the ruling elite, which is allowed by everyone and everything, which is under jurisdiction and can spit on any laws. And the rest of society for them is a trash that should serve their whims, lusts, interests and all that jazz. Will cost. And if they continue to behave this way, they may run into the next October revolution.
If some nouveau riche want to return something to the French in order to obtain a baronial title - for God's sake, let them return from their own pockets.
