In Poltava (Ukraine) are going to name the airport in honor of the "worthy man" - Mazepa

42
In the Ukrainian city of Poltava, there is an active discussion of what name to assign to the Poltava airport. Voting takes place both by phone and via the Internet. According to the chairman of the Poltava Regional Council, Alexander Bilenky, “you cannot leave the airport nameless,” and therefore “it’s right, the airport will receive the name worthy human. "


Alexander Bilenky:
This will be a business card area. And it is logical if we ask the opinion of the residents.


Voting is conducted on Onlinewhere the choice of names is very limited.

As local resources note, today the “Ivan Mazepa Airport” option is leading with a significant margin in honor of a well-known historical figure, a Ukrainian hetman, who distinguished himself by his betrayal and his transfer to the side of the Swedish king Karl XII with subsequent flight to the Ottoman Empire.

More than 2 thousand votes cast for Mazepa during the voting.

In Poltava (Ukraine) are going to name the airport in honor of the "worthy man" - Mazepa


And what other suggestions for the residents of Poltava are presented? These are Nikolai Gogol, Grigory Skovoroda, Ivan Kotlyarevsky and Simon Petlyura. At the same time, all these options significantly lag behind the version with Mazepa.

Ironically, the first international flight from Poltava airport will be made to Antalya, Turkey. If the airport receives as a result the name of Hetman Mazepa, who fled to the Ottoman Empire, it will give a certain symbolism ...

        Do you know whom the Kurds from Afrin resemble? Pereyaslav Rada of 1654. And even the Turks are again the protagonist.
        Porypali-porypalsya. We remained with a piece of land. We realized that the Krants would be cut either by Poles, or Swedes, or Turks and went to the Moscow Tsar — ​​fight for us with Poland and the Swedes, and take away their cities from them.

    Well, of course, everything is upside down, of course, the name of the hero of the defense of Poltava from the Swedes, Colonel Alexei Stepanovich Kelin is not comme il faut ... but a person who betrayed not only people who trusted him, but also the Orthodox faith, having gone to the Lutheran king ... But by the way , it’s so better, an extra symbol for us, what kind of heroes a nation has, such a nation.

      What are you speaking about!? This is a great nation of Raguli people who do not remember kinship. They will rename Poltava to Novoshvedovka, or Mazepinsk. In general, well, some kind of pure suspicious Freudianism is to choose a hero for yourself from those who actually shamed their Ukrainians. Like Petlyura, who gave five areas to the Poles, like Mazepa, merged after Poltava and others ... saigas. The Ruin itself in fact since 1991 could have been renamed Mazepina. They’ve got some kind of epidemic of manic-depressive psychosis right after maydown .... they’ve found a way to send it between svidomytes by airborne droplets through the Internet through the keyboard and screen.

      Then it’s better to give a name to this airport ... KARL 12 airport.
      In all of Eastern Europe, there was a tendency to rewrite history by changing the names of historical places along the way ... destroying the monuments and graves of our heroes of those years ... oblivion of its roots is what awaits UKRAINE and, accordingly, a kick from the depths of centuries under the ass of a pan-saucepan will fly delicious ...

      Strange. Actually, Gogol considered himself a Russian writer

      In his letter of 1844 to A.O. Smirnova Gogol answered this question this way: “I’ll tell you that I myself don’t know what my soul is, Khokhlak or Russian. I only know that I would not have given an advantage to either the Little Russians over the Russians, or the Russians over the Little Russians. Both natures are too generously gifted by God, and, as on purpose, each of them separately contains in itself that which is not in the other - a clear sign that they must replenish one another. For this, the very stories of their past life were given to them unlike one another, so that different forces of their character would be brought up separately, so that later, merging together, they would constitute something perfect in humanity. ”


      We will not divide Gogol, we will not tear him to pieces. If Pushkin is “our everything”, then Gogol is all ours. Native, Ukrainian, Russian, Orthodox.

      Didn't the hetman work for the good of Russia and the Ukrainian lands? Or did he become a hetman right before 1708 and immediately crossed *? Or did he decide so right before Karl’s birth?

    Mazepa is a bright witch in the history of ukrov, who lost .. in general, lost his treasury with the participation of Muscovites led by Alexander Menshikov. To erect a monument to such a loser is like praying to Nicholas II for the salvation of Russia. (Forgive me, the Orthodox himself, but the absurd is absurd. All his life the tsar dreamed that he would be left alone, and they would not give him peace after death).

    in honor of the notorious historical character, the Ukrainian hetman, distinguished himself by his betrayal and transition to the side of the Swedish king Charles XII with the subsequent flight to the Ottoman Empire.

    Interestingly, but the Russians (like Peter the Great) remember only that and nothing more about Mazepa? One can forgive Peter, he is such a man, vindictive and consistent, in him, too, positive qualities were mixed with sharply negative ones. However, for history, we remember his merits, not his shortcomings. Therefore, it is logical for Mazepa to remember the merits (including the transition to Karl).
    Merits of Mazepa (can I argue him, for Russia / Ukraine or the hetman himself)
    For a long time, Ivan Mazepa was one of the closest associates of Tsar Peter I and did a lot for the economic recovery of Left-Bank Ukraine. For numerous services to Russia, Mazepa (the second in the empire) was awarded the highest Russian award - the Order of St. Andrew the First-Called.

    For the formation of the Republic of Ingushetia (Ukrainian lands were part of Russia), the expansion of the Kiev-Mohyla Academy and the Chernihiv Collegium, the development of all branches of art, but also in the field of philosophy, theology, social and natural sciences.
    Due to Ivan Mazepa himself, a huge number of church buildings were built, restored and transformed. The most famous of them were buildings in such monasteries as Kiev Pechersk Lavra, Desert Nikolaevsky, Bratsk Epiphany, Kirilovsky, Zolotoverkho-Mikhailovsky, Chernigovsky Troitsko-Ilyinsky, Lubensky Mgar, Gustinsky, Baturinsky Krupnitsky, Glukhoshovsky, Domnitsky, Petropavlovsky Bakhmachsky, Kamensky, Lyubetsky, cathedrals in Kiev - Hagia Sophia, Pereyaslav and Chernihiv, churches in Baturin, and others.
    For the church
    Ivan Mazepa also dealt with the state of the Orthodox Church outside of Ukraine. Among the gifts made by Mazepa to a foreign Moscow Patriarchate, the most famous is the silver shroud, which is preserved in the altar of the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Resurrection at the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem and is used only in especially solemn occasions. Another well-known gift was the Gospel of 1708, transcribed and engraved with means for the liturgical use of the Orthodox Syrians of Aleppo. In addition to these gifts, the hetman allocated certain funds for alms and help to Orthodox Christians abroad. In total, according to the calculations of the Cossack foreman, made immediately after Mazepa’s death, during the 20 years of his reign, the hetman spent at least 1 ducats, 110 zlotys and 900 imperials for patronage.
    Sins of Mazepa
    Transition to the side of Charles 12. As a result of the reprisal from Peter (anathema, the destruction of the capital, deprivation of orders, etc.), by the way, Mazepa is the most popular "native of Ukrainian lands"
    186 engravings, 42 paintings, 22 musical works, 17 literary works, six sculptures are devoted to him. Among the most famous works are engravings by I. Migura, I. Shchirsky, D. Galyakhovsky, L. Tarasevich, M. Berningrotg; portraits of unknown artists of the XVII - beginning of the XVIII century., stored in museums of Ukraine; canvases of historical and legendary content of famous artists A. Deveria, Y. Kossak, L. Bulyange, G. Vernet, T. Gericault, E. Delacroix, E. Harpenter, M. Gerimsky; poetic and prose works of J. Byron, Hugo, Yu. Slovatsky, A. Pushkin, F. Bulgarin, G. Asaki; musical instrumental and opera works by P. Sokolsky, K. Pedrotti, S. Purney, J.V. Ginton, F. Pedrell, P. Tchaikovsky, M. Granval, F. Liszt, J. Matias, O. Titov, S. Rachmaninov.
    And finally. If numerous commentators claim that there were no Ukrainians, then this is a Russian hetman. If he is Ukrainian, then Ukraine and Ukrainians were.
    The story needs to be approached from a rational point of view .. Emotional is better off. There are merits and flaws in all historical characters.

      It turns out that there are no Russians, let alone some Ukrainians, as there were no people, but there were ... even TWO people of the Cossacks — the left and right banks. But this is already from the area fool Svidomo schizophrenia. Well, if you are interested in the nationality of Mazepa himself, then nee under the White Church (Pospolita), in the family of the Ukrainian nobility. That is, in Ukraine, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the nobility family is a hundred percent Pole, who, when necessary, switched from Catholicism to Orthodoxy several times.

      Yes, Mazepa was a Russian Cossack hetman! What can you do? Every family has its black sheep!
      Yes, I did something good there for the Motherland, for the people ... But! His betrayal crossed out all the good! All right! Or do you think that the betrayal of the Motherland can be compensated by the construction of a certain number of churches? The betrayal of the Motherland is the most serious crime, which should not have a range and the possibility of forgiveness.
