Once again about the awards. Fair accusations from Catherine the Great
As I understand it, the topic will not cool. Discredit of state awards continues, and this time Putin himself took the baton.
No, of course, there are Athletes and there are athletes. There is Larisa Latynina, Irina Rodnina, Vladislav Tretiak. And there are state awards for these athletes. And I am sure that not a single person in his right mind would dispute the Order of Latynina. Yes, nine-time Olympic champion, nine-time world champion, seven-time European champion Larisa Semyonovna Latynina.
And there is the Russian national football team ...
It was once accepted that for the victory, which glorified the country, people were presented with state awards. It was ok.
But it was in a normal country. Now the times are different. I would say almost Ukrainian. That is, if there is no peremoga / victory, it must be organized. From any zrady.
So, I fully agree with Catherine the "Great" Gamova that the past action in the Kremlin is Zrada. And let Gamova be perplexed, I will have indignation.
What kind of merit is? I'm still on the title of "Honored Master of Sports."
I just remind those who do not know, the title of Honored Master of Sports is given in Russia for 1-3-place at the Olympic Games and for 1-place at the World Championships. But not for the release of the final in 1 / 4!
According to the current regulations, the title is assigned to:
- champions and prize-winners of the Olympic, Paralympic and Deaflympic Games;
- world champions in the disciplines included in the program of the Olympic, Paralympic and Deaflympic Games, - in individual competitions, including relay races, groups, couples, etc., competitions in team games;
- World and European champions, winners of the World and European Cups, who also collected the required number of points in accordance with a special table;
- “as an exception” - “for an outstanding contribution to enhancing the prestige of the Russian Federation and Russian sports at the international level, while showing exceptional courage and skill”.
And then right golden rain poured. It is clear that "as an exception." We have here some exceptions in the country are crawling. Then, as an exception, the Hero of Russia will be hanged, then the order "For merits to ..." The main thing is that the article should be appropriate.
And, most importantly, for what? For the lost match and 8-e final place. Well, a decent exception, nothing to say.
I understand everyone who received the title of PJS deservedly. And on the basis of their merits expressed. Gamow, Musersky ... Well, sorry, I love volleyball. He played in his youth, and played well.
And I understand the athletes whose merits were simply discredited. Dmitry Musersky, who supported Ekaterina Gamova, the central blocker of the Russian national volleyball team, has the right to do so. Yes, he is ZMS. Olympic champion 2012 of the year, champion of Europe (2013), winner of the World Cup (2011), two-time winner of the World League (2011 and 2013 years), winner of the League of Nations 2018 of the year.
Yes, for the London Olympics he received the title of the PJS and the Order of Friendship. Deservedly? Try to argue.
And Gamow, who was the first to criticize the situation, is also not offended by the titles:
- two-time Olympic silver medalist (2000 and 2004);
- two-time world champion (2006 and 2010);
- two-time European champion (1999 and 2001);
- World Cup silver medalist (1999);
- Silver medalist of the World Champions Cup (2001).
Orders, however, Catherine was surrounded, but there are two medals of the Order "For services to ..."
And I translate immediately for non-lovers of large texts. Honored people reproach the sports authorities for the fact that other people were undeservedly awarded with a highly respected title in the sports environment.
Where football players had “exceptional courage and skill,” is a bit incomprehensible. With broken legs played? No, they always played like this before. Just this time, apparently, the fractures have successfully grown together.
In any case, a flight to the quarterfinals is no reason to equate this company with the winners of the Olympic Games or the winners of the World Cup.
But let the current champions and honored masters of sports discuss this.
In my opinion, the football players deserve the praise. Yes, jumped above the head. But this is absolutely no reason to humiliate the athletes, who from year to year were winning medals of various denominations to our country. Especially since the ball kickers have not produced anything.
But back to the state awards, which were originally discussed.
Just want to note that I perfectly understand the principle of the charter in another monastery. It’s not for me to change it, of course, but ...
Who we have today awarded the Order of Alexander Nevsky?
“Grounds for awarding:
The Order of Alexander Nevsky is awarded to citizens of the Russian Federation, replacing civil service positions, for special personal services to the Fatherland in the state-building, many years of conscientious service and the high results achieved by them in the performance of official duties, in strengthening the international authority of Russia, the country's defense , science, education, culture, art, health protection and other merits, as well as citizens of the Russian Federation for high personal advances in various sectors of the economy, research, socio-cultural, educational and other socially useful activities.
Citizens of the Russian Federation may be awarded the Order of Alexander Nevsky, as a rule, provided that they were previously awarded the Order of the Russian Federation, and persons serving in civil service positions must also have a total civil service experience of at least 20 years.
Outstanding foreign political and public figures, representatives of the business community of foreign countries can be awarded the Order of Alexander Nevsky for their merits in developing multilateral cooperation with the Russian Federation and assisting in its socio-economic development. ”
To begin with, Mr. Cherchesov had no right to this order at all, as can be seen from the statute. He was not awarded with other orders of Russia, was not a civil servant of 20 years, did not show high personal achievements in "other socially useful activities."
Among other things, 2,5 million euros - sufficient payment for the lost quarter-finals. But let's not fumble in other people's pockets, we are talking about a state award.
The award was awarded contrary to the statute. It is clear that the monastery is not ours, and you can spit on the statute. It's just another "hochunchik" Mr. President.
By the way, modest. So it was possible to give the whole team and Heroes of Russia to give. After Kiriyenko - easy. But, apparently, for this, it would really be necessary to win the championship.
I wonder what the holders of the Order of Alexander Nevsky, who were awarded them for real services, would have said about this. Yes, if you look at the lists (there are two of them, published and hidden) of the recipients, there are also enough of everyone ... Potanin, Deripasok, Gref and Rogozins. But with these, everything is clear. Do not give up yours, reward yours.
And what about those who are real?
Rollan Martirosov - Chief Designer Su-34.
Valery Gergiev - artistic director and director of the Mariinsky State Academic Theater.
Alferov Zhores Ivanovich is a physicist, the only one among our living Nobel Prize laureates who lives in Russia.
Tereshkova Valentina Vladimirovna - Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs.
And so on.
In general, unlike its predecessors, the current order of Alexander Nevsky is in fact a reward for loyalty and long service to government officials. The military among the awarded is, but their number is scanty.
But well, if this is an order for years of service, where is the coach? Yes, the Russian team can be called a state institution. Full And it represents the interests of Russia precisely in the international arena.
For comparison, I will cite as an example a person from volleyball.
Vladimir Romanovich Alekno, coach including the Russian volleyball team.
When Alekno in 2007, the Russian team became the silver winner of the World League, European Championship and World Cup. The Silver of the World Cup brought the Russian national team a ticket to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, where the team won bronze medals. They did not renew the contract, and after a year Alekno left the post.
22 December 2010 was held the second coming of Alekno in the Russian men's team. In 2011, under his leadership, the national team for the first time in the Russian stories won two tournaments at once under the auspices of the FIVB - the World League and the World Cup, winning, together with the last victory, the right to participate in the London Olympics.
There, Russian volleyball players won Olympic gold medals for the first time after the Soviet team won the 1980 Games of the year.
Olympic "gold" and "bronze" as a result. In terms of awards - the Order of Honor for the "gold" of London.
An interesting alignment, right? For the Olympic "gold" - 14-th order in a row, for 8 place on the World Cup - the fifth.
Well, I can only congratulate Mr. Cherchesov (although he doesn’t care three times) on joining the “friends” cohort, and we sympathize. The state awards of Russia are getting cheaper, and soon, probably, they will repeat the dismal fate of the awards of Soot Umalatova. That is beautiful, but funny.
It's a shame. For orders, for those who were awarded them for the right and for services. It's a shame for that hysteria, which staged stupid fans ballping. It's a shame for all the cheapening image of the country.
Especially for the overly touchy fans of this game: pay attention, I did not say a word about Akinfeev and Ignashevich.
