The triumph and tragedy of the "black baron"

133
27 August (15 August) 1878 of the year, one hundred and forty years ago, was born Pyotr Nikolayevich Wrangel - Baron, Lieutenant General, Hero of the Russian-Japanese and World War I, yet much better known to our fellow citizens by the events of the Civil War. “The White Army, the Black Baron” is all about him. A charismatic man in a black Circassian coat and a fur cap - so Baron Wrangel was remembered by all who saw his portraits from the time of the Civil War. Wrangel is one of the most interesting figures of that troubled time.


The triumph and tragedy of the "black baron"


In the Soviet period, he was demonized, called the "black baron", monarchists and white immigrants extolled as one of the last true defenders of the White idea. But the Civil War was, though very important, but still an episode in the life of the Russian general. If it were not for the revolution, the name of Baron would hardly have been associated with politics - he was making a brilliant military career and, until 1917, he was not at all about to go into political squabbles.

Peter Wrangel came from a very distinguished German family name, the home of the Tolsburg-Ellistfer family of the Wrangel family. Many representatives of the Wrangel clan achieved fame in the Russian service. Thus, Lieutenant General Alexander Wrangel, who fought in the Caucasus, directly commanded the capture of Imam Shamil. In honor of the navigator Admiral Ferdinand Wrangel named the island of the same name in the Arctic Ocean. However, the father of Peter Wrangel, Nikolai Egorovich Wrangel, unlike the majority of the representatives of the clan, made a career not in the military, but in the civil field. He was an official, then went into business and was chairman of the board of the Russian gold mining company. In 1877, Wrangel married Maria Dmitrievna Dementieva-Maykova, who bore him three sons - Peter, Nikolai and Vsevolod. Nikolai Nikolaevich Wrangel, brother of the “black baron”, later became a famous Russian art critic. Peter was born in 1878, in Novoaleksandrovsk, Kovno Province (now it is the Lithuanian city of Zarasai).



Peter Wrangel's childhood passed in Rostov-on-Don. Here, where the family of his father, Nikolai Egorovich, lived until the 1895 year, their family mansion still remains - the famous "Wrangel House", which was built in the 1885 year. Peter Wrangel himself had every chance not to start a military career, but to follow in the footsteps of his father - a successful entrepreneur. In 1896, Peter graduated from the Rostov Real School, and in 1901, the Mining Institute in St. Petersburg, received an engineering education. However, family traditions still took their toll, and in 1901, Peter Wrangel entered as a volunteer in the Life Guards Mounted Regiment. In 1902, he passed the exam at the Nikolaevsky Cavalry School and received the rank of cornet guard with admission to the reserve.

Resigning from the guard, Peter Wrangel went to serve in the Irkutsk province - official of special assignments under the Irkutsk governor-general. It seemed that a civil career awaited Pyotr Nikolayevich, but the Russian-Japanese war began. Baron re-enrolled in the army - this time already forever determined the choice of life. He was enrolled in the 2 of the Verkhneudinsky regiment of the Trans-Baikal Cossack Army, where in December 1904 was promoted to the center. In 1906, the city of Wrangel was transferred to the 55 th Dragoon Finnish Regiment in the rank of headquarters captain, and in 1907 in the Life Guards Mounted Regiment in the rank of lieutenant. After graduating from the Nikolaev Military Academy in 1910, Peter Wrangel continued his service. By the beginning of the First World War, he commanded the rank of captain and commanded a squadron of the Life Guards of the Horse Regiment. Already 12 December 1914, the valiant officer received the rank of colonel.



Wrangell proved himself very well - as an enterprising, courageous commander. October 8 1915. He was appointed commander of the 1-th Nerchinsky regiment of the Trans-Baikal Cossack army, fought in Galicia against the Austro-Hungarian troops. In January, 1917, shortly before the revolution, Colonel Peter Wrangel was promoted to major general and appointed commander of the 2 Brigade of the Ussurian cavalry division, and in July 1917, after the revolution, commander of the 7 Cavalry Division, then Commander of the Consolidated Cavalry Corps.

The tumultuous political events of the fall of 1917, forced the general to move to a dacha in Yalta. There he was arrested by local Bolsheviks, who placed the baron under arrest. If they knew what role Peter Wrangel would play in the Civil War in the foreseeable future - they would never let him go alive. But then Peter Wrangel was only the general out of office of the old army. Therefore, he was released and soon the baron moved to Kiev, where he contacted representatives of the Hetman Pavel Skoropadsky.

But soon Wrangel rejected the idea of ​​cooperation with Skoropadsky, convinced of the weakness of the Kiev regime. Arriving in Yekaterinodar (Krasnodar), Peter Wrangel entered the Volunteer Army and was appointed commander of the 1-th cavalry division, then - commander of the 1-of the equestrian corps. Already in service in the Volunteer Army, Major General Peter Wrangel 28 November 1918, was promoted to lieutenant general. So Peter Wrangel became one of the leaders of the White movement, distinguished not only by great personal courage and demanding of subordinates, but also by an ardent hatred of the Bolsheviks. It was Wrangel who commanded the capture of Tsaritsyn 30 on June 1919 of the year.



In November 1919, the baron headed the Volunteer Army, which fought in the Moscow sector, but already 20 December 1919 due to disagreements with General Anton Denikin - Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Southern Russia, was dismissed from his position and 8 February 1920 was dismissed. Wrangel departed for Constantinople, but already on April 2 of 1920, General Denikin decided to leave the post of Commander-in-Chief of the All-Soviet Union. After this decision, the military council, chaired by General Dragomirov, elected Peter Wrangel as the new commander-in-chief. Already on April 4, the baron returned to Russia - the British battleship "The Emperor of India" brought him to Sevastopol. 28 April 1920, the year Wrangel renamed the army into the Russian Army, hoping, thereby, to raise the morale of the troops, who were by that time in a very difficult situation.

In 1919-1920 Peter Wrangel for the sake of joint action against the Bolsheviks was ready to unite with anyone. He even sent parliamentarians to the anarchist Nestor Makhno, but the rebels executed them. However, a number of less significant "green" atamans concluded an alliance with the Wrangel. Wrangel was ready to recognize Ukraine as an independent state, and the Ukrainian language as the second official language other than Russian after the creation of federal Russia. Wrangel recognized the independence of the mountain federation of the North Caucasus, on whose support he also counted.

Contrary to Soviet propaganda, Baron Wrangel was not a supporter of the return of peasant land to landowners. On the contrary, he acknowledged that the seizure of landlords by the peasants in 1917 was lawful, offering only to pay a certain contribution to the treasury of the state. Equally, Wrangel made concessions to the Cossacks, and even tried to win over the workers, taking steps to protect their rights. But all this did not help the baron. By this time, the Red Army was far superior to the armed units subordinate to Wrangel. Baron seriously discredited himself and continued cooperation with the British and French, whose intervention in Russia caused a negative attitude towards them, even by many former officers of the old Russian army.



By the beginning of autumn 1920, the situation of the Russian army of General Wrangel had deteriorated significantly. Wrangel could not prevent the Red Army from occupying bridgeheads in the Kakhovka area, and on the night of November 8 1920, the Southern Front of the Red Army under the command of Mikhail Frunze launched an offensive on the Crimea. The 1-i and 2-i cavalry armies, the 51-division of Vasily Blucher and the army group of Nestor Makhno under the command of Semen Karetnik participated in this operation. Despite the great losses, Red managed to take Perekop by storm and break through to the territory of the Crimean peninsula. The threat of an offensive by the Soviet troops, which no longer had the strength to resist the Wrangelians, led to a mass evacuation of the remnants of the Russian army from the Crimea. Around 100, thousands of people — soldiers and officers of Wrangel’s army — were evacuated to Constantinople in an organized manner. The Black Baron never returned to his homeland.

Once on the Turkish coast, Wrangell settled on the yacht "Lukull", which stood at the embankment of Constantinople. But, despite the fact that the “black baron” left Russia, the Soviet leadership continued to consider him a dangerous opponent of the Soviet government, which could organize a new anti-Bolshevik movement with the support of the Western powers. 15 October 1921, a year after the evacuation of the Wrangeers from the Crimea, an Italian ship “Adria” crashed into the yacht “Lucull” from the Soviet port of Batum. The yacht sank, but Wrangel and his family luckily escaped to escape - during the ram they were absent on the yacht. There is a version that the ram of the yacht was specially planned and organized by the Soviet special services. In any case, the Soviet leadership was right, fearing the hostile activities of Wrangel and his supporters.

In 1922, the “black baron” moved from Constantinople to Sremski Karlovtsi, in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (Yugoslavia), and in 1924 he founded the Russian All-Military Union (EMRO), which many Russian officers who found themselves in emigration European countries and in Turkey. In an effort to give ROVS special legitimacy, Peter Wrangel conceded the supreme leadership of the organization to Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolayevich, who was the supreme commander-in-chief of the Russian Imperial Army during the First World War. The EMRO continued to engage in anti-Soviet activities, studying the situation in the Soviet Union and consolidating all anti-Bolshevik emigration.

Baron Wrangel himself in September 1927 of the year moved from Yugoslavia to Belgium, where he settled in Brussels, becoming an engineer in one of the local organizations. However, in April 1928, Peter Wrangell unexpectedly contracted tuberculosis. The disease developed very rapidly and 25 on April 1928, the 49 year-old Lieutenant-General Peter Wrangel died suddenly. The relatives of the commander decided that the Soviet special services had poisoned Baron, who continued to monitor the former leader of the White movement. Peter Wrangel was buried in Brussels, but the next year his ashes were transported to Yugoslavia and October 6. 1929 was solemnly reburied in the Russian Church of the Holy Trinity in Belgrade. Many associates of Wrangel continued to mourn the general for a long time, believing that if he were alive, he would certainly continue the struggle against Soviet power. Some were even convinced that in the 1941 year, Wrangel would inevitably be on the side of Nazi Germany, at least he would try to seize the moment and join the German forces to participate in the overthrow of the Bolsheviks.



The figure of General Baron Wrangel meets with conflicting opinions. Traditional for Soviet historical The science approach depicts the Baron as an ardent opponent of Soviet power, acting in the interests of restoring the old regime. The “White Patriots”, in turn, see Peter Wrangel as a heroic military leader who wished Russia only good. But, most likely, Peter Wrangel himself in 1920 could not answer the question of what he wanted Russia. In his hatred of the Bolsheviks, he was ready for an alliance "even with the devil." Hetman Skoropadsky with his "Sich Riflemen", Germans, British, French, Caucasian highlanders and Crimean Tatars, atamans of the "greens" - with whom the "black baron" was not ready to cooperate.

Meanwhile, the fighting in the Crimea in 1920, partly prevented the Red Army from delivering a fatal blow to the White Poles and take Warsaw. Most likely, for Peter Wrangel, by this time the war had already acquired the character of some kind of “action for action”. He very vaguely imagined the future of Russia in the event of victory over the Bolsheviks - some kind of federation with semi-independent formations of Ukrainians, Cossacks, Highlanders.

But Wrangel actively supported the West, realizing that the longer the Civil War is torn apart by Russia, the more massive the blow will be delivered to the Russian state, the more difficult it will be for the country to revive its former power.

Of course, all that has been said does not cancel the military qualities of Lieutenant General Peter Wrangel, the hero of the Russo-Japanese and World War I, who received awards not for staff work, but for the blood shed by him and his soldiers on the battlefields. Peter Wrangel was an interesting and tragic figure in the turbulent period of Russian history, which there is something to respect, but not worth idealizing.

    The author needs to know that in order to defeat the Russian Army in the Crimea, Poland and the Bolsheviks concluded a CEREMIA (there were two of them), showing touching unanimity, for both Poles and Bolsheviks, real Russia was the deadliest danger.
    One thing you need to know about Pyotr Nikolaevich: a volunteer, a veteran of two wars, a gentleman of St. George. winner of the highest awards of Russia for courage.
    And he fought for Russia to the end, consistently and firmly.
    In the Crimea, reunited with the Motherland in 2016, a monument to the Russian patriot general was erected.

        The author was reproached, because famous people of Russia have been called from time to time by name and patronymic, and everywhere should: Pyotr Nikolaevich Wrangel .. Also, the author showed a clear alienation to the personality and activities of P.N. Wrangel, reproaching the civilian in Russia in relations with many active forces, and After all, the Bolsheviks did not compare right and left to trade and surrender the territories and peoples of Russia to everyone, for the sake of maintaining power, how they treat them ... P.N. spr a just familiarization with historical faithfulness of Russians, as well as other leaders of the curing of the Bolshevik lies and slandering, and from new liberasticheskie influences that of negativity no better Bolshevik ...

      for the Bolsheviks, real Russia was the deadliest danger.

      And which Russia is "real"? With the so-called "time sheet"? How is it: .... why do you please, Mr. Privy Councilor ...?

      In tsarist Russia, about half of the rural population was illiterate, from the word completely. After all, only in the so-called "volost" villages were "parish" schools, where they taught the law of God, reading, counting and writing. “Real schools”, where they gave the then “secondary”, 7-year education, were located in large cities and were paid. Could a peasant son from some remote farm go to the provincial center and study at a real school, and then get and higher education? It was almost impossible, since he even don’t have anything to do with himself, except for self-woven bast shoes, not to mention paying a tuition fee, living somewhere and
      to eat something ...
      Was such a “real” Russia a mortal danger for the Bolsheviks? Oh, undoubtedly, it was! Studying even the Mosin rifle was a problem for the then recruit; even in the Second World War many soldiers found it difficult to master a somewhat advanced Tokarev SVT, not to mention that such a military specialty as a tank driver was severely deficient and these people were strictly forbidden by special orders not used for its intended purpose.

      That is why, one of the first tasks, among the many that the Bolsheviks faced, was the task of organizing universal access to high-quality affordable education and they coped well with this task, as evidenced by the scientific achievements of this relatively short period, which lasted only 70 years.

      And who was Tsar General Wrangel? He fought against the Bolsheviks, which means that he defended the privileges of a small handful of rich people, merchants, landowners, but by no means a simple peasant and worker, and he also poured water on the mill of foreign aggressive states that were sleeping and saw how to weaken Russia even more. these rifles, guns, uniforms, and their troops were sent to help ..., intervention, maybe they heard ...?

      And it is very unfortunate that people like Wrangel, Denikin, Kolchak, the wise modern nouveau riche, who are in power in Russia today, erect monuments and it is very clear why.

      To pervert and erase from the people's memory a beautiful country with a just social system, the USSR and justify the forcible restoration of capitalism, based on the robbery of the people by a bunch of unscrupulous capitalist oligarchs.

        Nope, real Russia is one in which there never was cannibalism, corpse eating and many millions of starvation deaths in the 20th century and there was no Russian cross. This is Russia a war veteran, the order bearer P.N. Wrangel.

        Russia perfectly coped with this task before the VOR, having built about 40 thousand schools and filling them with teachers. The school in the availability of a maximum of 3 km was such implemented project in real Russia. Or did your foreign tourists bring schools and teachers from their Swiss? lol It was only possible to RESTORE the number of schools and students that existed before the Thief. 1927 Mr.
        But also to the 40th anniversary of VOR-zilch: January 4 1957 year there was a resolution of the CPSU Central Committee "On the eradication of illiteracy among the population."
        And again a bummer: resolution of the Bureau of the CPSU Central Committee for the RSFSR and the Council of Ministers of August 27 1962 of the year "On the completion of the elimination of illiteracy and illiteracy in the RSFSR"

          Olgovich, in fact, in 1902 there was a hunger riot in the southern provinces of Russia. Interior Minister von Plehve, among other things, a man of great intelligence, used troops to restore order. I, as a rural resident, can say: crop failure, possible under ANY authority because: “man is the king of nature. But nature doesn’t know this” (film “Mystery of the Third Planet”)

            There were hungry years, but deaths from hunger in real Russia were NOT in the 20th century. Like cannibalism, as with the next government in the mid-20th century. ANYWHERE in the world has there been such (more than 10 million starvation deaths) - in which Africa. Only the "people's" government.

              There were no deaths? Olgovich, are you tired of lying insolently?
              "Fertility and mortality of the Orthodox population in the Russian Empire in 1889-1891. The most comprehensive report of the Ober Prosecutor of the Holy Synod for the Department of the Orthodox Religion for 1890 and 1891, as well as for 1892 and 1893)," Synodal Printing House. St. Petersburg, 1895

              Year. Is dead.

              1889 / 2 939 197

              1890 / 3 011 888

              1891 / 3 045 828

              1892 / 3 564 352.

              A common method of calculating supermortality is to subtract “normal” deaths from the numbers obtained during the fasting period. This direct calculation method is extremely low-indicative for a hunger researcher and, strictly speaking, cannot be applied. Nevertheless, in order to identify demographic losses and the dynamics of their increase during the "force majeure periods", this approach is quite suitable.

              Obviously, one or even two “normal” years preceding a hunger strike are not indicative. The approximate natural mortality rate in the previous period must be calculated based on the arithmetic average of several years. So, of course, we make a well-known assumption, not taking into account the population growth over the years, and therefore a corresponding increase in mortality. But, nevertheless, within seven years, this fluctuation will not give a significant error.

              An article by V. Pokrovsky “Population” in the Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary gives the following figures: In 50 provinces of European Russia in 1892 (after a crop failure of 1891) 3563398 people died (3,92% of the total population.), Whereas in the seven-year period 1884–90 only 2820363 people per year died (3,34%).

              We take the figure 2820363 as a normal indicator.

              Since 1890, we have seen a clear increase in mortality, the cause of which was the deterioration of the diet and the use of surrogate food. By 1891-92 the figure grows to frightening values. Since the main part of the Orthodox population lived in the European part of Russia, these figures are normally correlated with the data of the “All-Substantial Report”. Let's make simple calculations:

              1891 - 3 045 828-2820363 = 225 465

              1892 - 3563398-2820363 = 743 035

              225 465 + 743 035 = 968 500

              If we take into account that it is necessary to include in the general losses the non-Orthodox population, which was not included in the statistics of Pobedonostsev (in any case, not only the Orthodox died), the result will be somewhat different. According to the 1897 census, 125 people lived in Russia, non-Orthodox of them - 640% - 021 people. Exact data on the number of "foreigners" for 30.7-38. we do not have. Taking the background of Orthodox deaths as general, 571 will make up (rounded) 468%, which means that with "foreigners" 1891% = 1892.

              That is, the supermortality of relatively prosperous years is 1.

              And this figure is incomplete, because Church books counted ONLY baptized, which can be recognized as Orthodox. That is, unbaptized children were not included in the statistics of Pobedonostsev.

          Hmm, you didn’t flog the people in the Kolchakovo counterintelligence, they hung it from the lanterns at Yudenich, cooked the living at Krasnov, so your real Russia did not work out.
          American General Graves: “In Eastern Siberia, for every person killed by the Bolsheviks, there were a hundred people killed by anti-Bolshevik elements.”
          US officers Sayers and Kahn: "Hundreds of Russians who dared not submit to the new dictator (Kolchak) hung on trees and telegraph poles along the Siberian Railway."
          "Russian Vedomosti" Prince Lvov: Bulak-Balakhovich - the memory of him was not good. Robberies and, most importantly, the gallows forever, must have destroyed the reputation of Balakhovich among the peasant world. Over 40-50 versts from Pskov, peasants with stern disapproval talk about his executions in Pskov squares and about his inhuman addiction to hanging.
          In the opinion of General A. I. Denikin, the counterintelligence of the White armies was "the centers of provocation and organized robbery."

          well, here’s the “Russian cross” for you, exactly since the liberals came to power in Russia.
          An almost twofold drop in the birth rate in 1988-1993, unlike the Khrushchev era, was not accompanied by an increase in the number of abortions. During the recession of the 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s, there was also an increase in mortality, which was associated with a sharp decline in the standard of living of the population, reduction of jobs and employment, increased crime and increased consumption of alcohol, drugs and their surrogates per capita ( especially among young people and the working-age population).
          From 1925 to 2000, the total fertility rate in Russia decreased from 6,80 to 1,21 children per woman. Of these, 71% of the total decline falls on the years 1925−1955 [8]. Despite this decline and losses as a result of the war, the population of the RSFSR for 1925–1955 increased by 25 million. A sharp decline in the birth rate occurred in the early 1990s [9]; At the same time, mortality in Russia began to steadily exceed the birth rate. https: //ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographic_crisis_in_Russian Federation
          This even Wikipedia knows ...
          In 2007, by decree of the President of the Russian Federation, the “Concept of the demographic policy of the Russian Federation for the period until 2025” was approved. This document states that “since 1992, a steady decline in the population has begun due to the excess of the mortality rate over the birth rate. Over the past 15 years, more than 2 million people died in Russia annually, which is twice as many per 1000 people than in European countries and the USA, one and a half times more than the world average, and were born annually during this period 1,2-1,5 million people. " In this remarkable document, the main reason for the low life expectancy is presented: "high mortality of citizens of working age." Not an eyebrow, but an eye! Something from the series “- What happened to the submarine?” “She drowned.”

        Bistrov, in part I agree with you, but I don’t agree with you about the "light": ALL the front-line soldiers I spoke with, they abused the SVT in unison. You say: "many soldiers couldn’t get hold of a somewhat advanced SVT," and the famous "dad" came out more noticeable than the Mosin rifle? As you know, PPSh has become the most widespread PP, but the fighters have remained the same. Regarding the driver mechanics, I recommend that you read Drabkin: “I fought on a tank,” and also take an interest in how many hours the mechanic’s driver prepared in the USSR and Germany?

          Yes, she was on the shoulder. It is simply sensitive to pollution, but how in the trench in the rain, for example, clean it regularly, or at -20, when the fingers barely work? Therefore, they sometimes threw it, as they wedged and took Mosinki into their hands.

            "Wehrmacht soldiers were armed with rifles, and submachine guns were only commanders," and the places were armed with SS regiments.
            It is not that bad or not, but economic feasibility: 1) they had a large supply of rifles from: Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Poland and all rifles under a German cartridge. 2) The German economy experienced a severe “hunger” in many respects, otherwise why were they ersatz? Speer wrote about this. 3) a rifle is cheaper in production than PP.

              Well, not really like that. Then why, in your opinion, the Germans first began to create more low-power, the so-called. "intermediate", shortened cartridges and make small arms under them, this is the so-called "assault" weapon, Sturmgever-44? Yes, and everything they had in the infantry troops was imprisoned around a rifle-caliber machine gun, they had such a machine gun in every infantry division.

              The point here is not the "high cost" of submachine guns, they were quite cheap, even completely primitive, for example, EMP, MP-28 or MP-35, and the MP-40 was much cheaper than its predecessor MP-38, I don’t think that they were more expensive than 98K rifles. The fact is that the OKW generals were against the mass arming of soldiers with submachine guns and were absolutely right.

              And so, yes, Germany, despite the occupation and subjugation of all industry in Europe to itself, was never able to fully provide its troops with small arms, like all others, and this was one of the reasons for its defeat in the war.

              The point is not the technical parameters of the rifles, both Mosin and Mauser rifles, and not even the ability to shoot (to raise a good shooter, long and regular training is required, preferably from childhood, when every miss is awarded a weighty crack from the parent, with the corresponding comment, do not burn charges, they cost money, as you know, it is in childhood that we are most susceptible to all irritants, so many snipers have been hunters since childhood.), and the fact that the opposing sides tried to disengage the engineering structures olozhit within the actual sighting (lesion growth figures of the enemy by a single shot from a rifle without optics, even within just 300 meters is considered a good shot) reach just rifles and machine guns (600 meters), as the most effective small arms. (agree that submachine guns are completely useless here)

              As for shooting at 2 km., The Mosin rifle was created during the reign on the battlefield, as a mobile force, cavalry, it was from two kilometers that concentrated volley fire began on the attacking enemy cavalry.
              In 1944, the production of Mosin rifles, as such, was discontinued in the USSR, due to the low demand for shooting on the battlefield of the Second World War over 400 meters, they completely switched to the production of a carbine of the 1944 model with an integral bayonet (on carbines of an earlier release (1907 and 1938 years) the bayonet was absent.

              Now the trends are changing again, shooting from small arms at the enemy’s manpower on the battlefield, especially aimed fire, at a distance of even more than a kilometer, is again in demand, so the designers again began to solve the problem of creating small arms for these purposes.

(for an automatic rifle an unnecessarily long barrel, an open bolt, and a constant fear of misfire to wish for the best). The more successful Simonov’s rifle, created before the Second World War, which we now have as SKS, but already under the cartridge 7,62 / 39, did not go, because Stalin trusted Tokarev and did not allow the transition to Simonov’s carbine, although everyone understood the superiority of SKS ...

              And by the end of the war it became clear that the distance of opening fire from the infantry did not exceed 100-150 meters, and at that distance a simpler and cheaper submachine gun was about the same as a self-loading rifle, I don’t even mention fire density.

Whatever you say, the Garand M1 is more successful and has been in service for a long time. Of course, 150 meters for a little, but up to 300 meters is enough for submachine guns of the Second World War, and the fire density is not comparable ..

    Baron Wrangel, a non-Russian, nobleman, tsarist general, one of the leaders of the counter-revolution and the White Guard, is a class enemy of the working people, therefore there is much to talk about him. In 1920, our grandfathers and great-grandfathers (workers and peasants of Russia) said everything about this, throwing Wrangel and his army out of the country.
    PS About the photo with the monument to Wrangel in the territory of the church institution. This indicates only one thing, that the church has acted and continues to oppose socialism, against the power of the working people. It’s worth considering.

    Rubbish was a little man. An unprincipled careerist, a lying and rotten politician, a talentless commander. He created the EMRO in full accordance with the ideas of its creator, obsequiously licked the boots and bloody creature Mannerheim, and the unsurpassed Slavophobic Hitler, tearfully imploring these two sworn enemies of the Russian people to help them continue the destruction of this very people, which they failed to complete in 1920's for reasons beyond their control. Being wrung out and cursed by their Homeland, Wrangel, Krasnov and some others like them (not very numerous, I must say, to the credit of the Russian emigration), instead of calming down and thinking about the correctness of their own position, like many clever and honest people, real the patriots continued, with all their little bit of silence, to harm their people in favor of their own painful ambitions. Krasnov was eventually hanged, Wrangel, of course, would have waited for the same fate. Monument to Wrangel in Sevastopol could be put only by those who hung the memorial tablet of Mannerheim in St. Petersburg — either clinical deaf-witted, or direct provocateurs and traitors, or, most likely, both of them together.

            Wrangell was a fierce opponent of the country in which my grandparents lived. While they were running barefoot through the streets, playing lapta or grandmother, he dreamed of coming to these streets with weapons in his hands, for which he was ready to kill, including their parents. His associates willingly shot at the Russian people both during the Great Patriotic War and during the Finnish War, many of whom were later executed as accomplices of the fascists.

                And what is ROVS?
                During the Second World War, the EMRO found themselves on opposite sides of the front. Some took neutrality, others formed Russian collaborationist units as part of the troops of the Third Reich. And, for example, the captain of the first rank G.E. Chaplin fought on the side of the allies, participated in battles in Norway, landed in Normandy, liberated Belgium, was the commandant of the prisoner of war camp, soon becoming a British lieutenant colonel (though he hoped to convince his command to start a war against THE USSR)
                December 1939. In connection with the outbreak of hostilities of the USSR against Finland, the Head of the ROVS General Arkhangelsky turned to Field Marshal Mannerheim with a proposal for the participation of Russian volunteers in the armed struggle against the Red Army on the Soviet-Finnish front.
                On May 21, 1941, the Head of the Association of Russian Military Unions, Major General A. A. von Lampe, addressed to the Commander-in-Chief of the German Army (OKH), Field Marshal Walter von Brauchitsch with a request, in case of hostilities against the USSR, to provide the ROVS officers with the opportunity to take part in the armed struggle with the communist government in Russia ..
                June - August 1941. German military attack on the Soviet Union; first summer campaign. Individual ranks and small groups of ranks of the ROVS, on their own initiative, are sent to the Eastern Front, wanting to take part in any form in the fight against the Bolsheviks in their homeland.

      And what do they want, DNR + LC?
      They want to live in peace and freedom? Then, go ahead, for freedom and tranquility it is necessary to fight. Fight, who's stopping you?
      You can not ? Not enough strength? Then contact a neighbor who can help. But the problem is immediately drawn — the neighbor is not the same as he was before '91, he is not going to lay his soldiers for thanks. You need to pay for help, if not with money, then, at least, by the adoption of his side. Ah, and you don’t want that? Do you want a neighbor to fight for you, and after that you yourself lived? No guys, either take the neighbor’s hand or on your own. As they say, either remove the cross or put on your underpants. In 2014, the people of Crimea clearly said, we want to go to Russia. The result is in Russia. And in the referendum in the DPR about joining there was not a word, we just want to live separately. And if it didn’t work, they immediately shouted Russia, save it.

    The wording about the readiness for Wrangel to conclude an alliance “even with the devil” causes Crimean Tatars, Highlanders, Germans, British, French ... Well, firstly, let's recall the Leninist policy of reliance on the national suburbs and say that the highlanders and Crimean Tatars rushed with red flags, as if they were mad, they were rapturously fighting both the Cossacks and the Russian population in general! Is not it so?! Until then, until the Bolsheviks began to indicate to them that religion is opium for the people and generally impose their own rules on the ground! The British in the first place and the French behind them absolutely did not want the restoration of the Russian monarchy so that they probably just needed to be silent! Otherwise, I really want to talk about Germany - paying part of the indemnity with gold and tsarist securities, the Brest Peace, the obligations of the Bolsheviks to the West in the person of Anglo - Saxon capital and Jewish bankers overseas! What are the conflicting opinions of Baron Wrangel? The fact that the Russian officer did not accept the Bolshevik coup, as well as the February betrayal ?! That is exactly what the Russian officer was supposed to do - nothing else!

      And yet, what is surprising about the defenders of Bolshevism is the Russian officers, including naturally whose ancestors were Germans, Swedes, etc. including the Russians themselves, they are all enemies of the working people, although for centuries Russia has been glorified and defended! Russian Cossacks are generally monsters and maniacs - "they raped, killed, burned ..." All class enemies are clearly defined in the Red Terror decree. They are the royal family, royal people, civil servants, officers in general, cultural figures, clergy .. further and peasants fists i.e. well-off, which turned out to be a lot for the "impoverished Tsarist Russia" ... And who are the goodies? The revolutionaries are Jews, Latvians, Estonians, Chinese, Hungarians ... Here they are who are the heroes of Bolshevism! It turns out that those who did not sleep at night all thought about Russia ... Hmm ... In short, the Russians turned out to only interfere with them in the struggle for "Russian happiness"!

        Such articles (and comments thereto) very clearly define: who is RUSSIAN with a thousand-year history; and who is simply "Russian-speaking" (the poor term post-Soviet), for whom the story began in 1917.
        By the way, at the expense of hunger:


        In Soviet historiography, measures to combat the crisis were declared stupid and hopelessly late. Western estimates remained more restrained. For example, in the book of the American researcher Robinson Jr. “Famine in Russia, 1891–1892: The Imperial Government Responds to a Crisis”, the author concludes that the actions of the tsarist government in combating the crisis were no less effective than the actions of the British government aimed at to fight hunger in Ireland a few years later. Robinson writes:

        The food operation was far from perfect, but it achieved the main goal facing any hunger strike campaign. Government support prevented the very real threat of mass deaths from starvation, kept mortality within acceptable limits, and saved the common economy in the regions affected by the disaster from collapse. The admiration for government efforts increases all the more when we recall that they were undertaken in the presence of significant institutional and political obstacles.

        The Red Cross report did not record “not a single death directly from starvation, from the complete absence of any food, not to mention the cases of suicides or murders of children due to hunger, was not recorded once and nowhere”.

        Yes, the St. Petersburg press did write about eating children by hungry parents. They wrote about Tatars selling their daughters into slavery (young men turned out to be slaveholders, and they called the payment for young slaves the obscure word "kalym"; the capital's journalists did not have time, however, to delve into the details). In the Volga region, peasants were distributed corn as food aid; in newspapers it was announced that peasants were given out cereals that even cattle did not want to eat (indeed, horses and cows, who had never seen corn before, did not immediately start eating it).

        After 1891, having learned from bitter experience, the government decided to check newspaper articles with reports of starving. During the next crop failure of 1911, the local authorities, in response to the news appearing in newspapers, informed Petersburg:

        Reports of starvation death in the village of Gruzinovo, the Saratov district, could not be verified, since there was no such village in the area.

        Or this:

        On December 28, 1911, in the Russkiye Vedomosti, the Volga-Kama Speech article from Spassky Uyezd was reprinted stating that in the village of Staro-Barinovsky 600 cattle, especially horses, fell from a nonsense. However, the village of Staro-Barinovsky was not in the county.

        Or this:

        The peasant Poreznov, who was reported to have hanged himself, was found alive and stated that he had learned from the newspapers about his attempted suicide.

        And if there were no newspapers, he would have remained in ignorance.

        It remains to add that under the influence of the ideas of Narodism in many magazines the main culprit of the famine was declared ... railways. Allegedly, the opportunity to export bread from the country doomed the peasants to starvation. How could bread be brought to starving villages quickly without railroads? The outraged public did not worry much about this straightforward question.

        But they brought bread, and brought a lot of it.

        The state in the barren provinces literally fed millions of people. Later, the Bolsheviks would be reluctant to allow American volunteers intending to feed the starving peasants in the Volga region; the tsarist government could not even think about abandoning the obligation to provide bread to the farmers in trouble. As one observer notes about a severe crop failure in the Samara province already in 1911:

        The consequences of the crop failure would have affected the local population even more, the decline and ruin of the farms would have been complete if the government had not provided timely assistance with a loan for sowing, food and livestock feed. Without help, it would be impossible for the local peasant population to live as comparatively favorably as it turned out in practice: winter and spring are experienced without epidemiological diseases developing in places of hunger, without cattle mortality.

        In 1906-07 the state spent 12 million rubles to help 128 barren provinces. In the same provinces for 12 months, alcohol worth 130 million rubles was drunk. The volume of deposits in savings accounts increased by 17 million. (For comparison, the new battleship cost 14,6 million). The magnitude of the famine is impressive.
        In other words, the tales of the constant hunger of the peasantry and the complete indifference of the government to it are another example of the so-called lies. The Russian peasantry at the end of the XNUMXth century did not live well, and lean years led to a deterioration in the quality of food - this is true. Russia remained a backward country (compared to Western Europe), mass medicine was only in its infancy, and the peasants were defenseless against the waves of epidemics. But millions of starvation deaths for tsarist Russia were a nightmare that would become a reality even under the Bolsheviks.

                From the message of the military commissar of the 42-th division of the 13-th army V.N. Cherny in December 1919 of the year: “There is not a single settlement visited by the Budenovites, where there would not be a continuous moan of inhabitants. Mass robberies, robbery and violence of the Budenovites a shift in the management of whites. Cavalrymen of parts of the corps took away from the population (indiscriminately from fists and poor people) clothes, felt boots, fodder (sometimes they didn’t leave even a pound of oats), food, without paying a dime, breaking open chests, robbed lingerie, money, watches, tableware, etc. I rape and torture. " In January 1920, the First Cavalry Army occupied Rostov. RB Gul wrote: "The city suffocated in the killings and violence that reached the soldierly joy of the looting of Budenovites.
                Plenipotentiary representative of the Cheka in the North Caucasus, Y.H. Peters accused Budenny of megalomania and that he contains women at the headquarters of the army "right down to the streets." The Cavalry Army was followed by a whole tail of wagons with looted property. Such cars were, according to the assistant chief of the military communications of the front for political affairs I.N. Mironov, about 120. And here is the opinion of Commander G. Ya. Sokolnikov: "... the partisan-Makhnovist formations of the Konarmia will present in the future an even greater military and political minus than in the present, and will be, if not a direct weapon of political adventure, then at least a breeding ground for banditry and corruption " And here is an excerpt from the letter of Voroshilov himself from March 4 of 1920 of the year: “For a number of reasons, banditry, throat grabbing and even robbery are still flourishing. We need workers and much more to get rid of these nightmarish phenomena. The situation in which lately, the army, of course, was unsuitable for a spiritual rebirth. "
                Report by the head of the 8th cavalry division of the Red Cossacks V.M. Primakov from the 2 of October 1920 of the year: “I’m reporting that the 6-th division of the 1-th Cavalry Army passed through the location of the division entrusted to me, which carries out mass robberies and murders along the way and pogroms. Yesterday over 30 people were killed in Salnitsa metro station, the chairman of the revolutionary committee and his family were killed; in Lyubar metro more than 50 people were killed. The command and commissar staff are not taking any measures. Now the pogrom is ongoing in Ulanov ... In view of this that in the pogrom takes part and teams The composition, the fight against the pogroms, will obviously take the form of an armed clash between the Cossacks and the Budenovites. Yesterday I spoke with the chief-6 (Apanasenko). Having told me that the military commissar of the division and several members of the command staff were killed several days ago by their soldiers for shooting bandits. the masses don’t listen to their commanders and, according to the nachdiv, they don’t obey him anymore. The 6 division goes behind the lines with the slogans “beat the Yids, Communists, commissars and save Russia”, the name on the lips of the soldiers is Makhno as the leader who gave this slogan ” . Budyonny appeared in the division only a week later. An extraordinary commission of inquiry worked in Konarmia. 387 people were arrested, 141 people, including 19 representatives of the command staff were sentenced to death. But the situation in the army, these measures have not changed. Opinion of the political inspectorate of the South-Western Front P.Ya. Vitolina, referring to December 1920 of the year: “The mood of the units, as one of the responsible party workers put it, is fighting: beat the Yids and Communists and save Russia. And, indeed, these two elements intertwine

                Oral Report to the Chairman of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee. TO KALININ'S REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SPECIAL DEPARTMENT OF THE FIRST CAVIAR ARMY.15 October 1920g. m. Znamenka.

                Now, after the disarmament of the 6 Cavalry Division, the dark element in the division still remains, and is campaigning for the bandits issued by the division to be released. We have very little strength, and if these remaining bandits want, they will be able to recapture those arrested.
                It should also be noted that it is necessary to enable our departments to deal with bandits on the spot. We are just in the territory of Makhno. In the Ekaterinoslav lips. 2 prison I horse was unloaded. The bandits, knowing that their comrades were in prison, ran ahead and whispered in the army that the Budyonnovites were sitting in such a prison. Budyonnovtsy came and opened prisons ...

                  Yes, a lot of de-ma was plastered. Of course, bandits also fell, many Makhnovists and various "greens" joined the Red Army, but I already wrote that they were shot for banditry. Write yourself

                  So you need to correctly understand your information, because all this was not the rule, but the exception with which the Bolsheviks fought.

          "Without three years of greatest class battles and revolutionary energy
          the Russian proletariat of 1905-1907 would not have been so fast, in
          sense of completion of its initial stage, in a few days, the second
          revolution, "Lenin pointed out (ibid., p. 13).
          In the very first days of the revolution, Soviets appeared. Victorious revolution
          relied on the Soviets of Workers 'and Soldiers' Deputies. Rebel workers and
          soldiers created the Soviets of Workers 'and Soldiers' Deputies. 1905 revolution
          showed that the Soviets are organs of armed insurrection and at the same time
          it is time for the germ of a new, revolutionary power. The idea of ​​the Soviets lived in
          the consciousness of the working masses, and they carried it out the very next day after
          the overthrow of tsarism with the difference, however, that in 1905 were created
          The councils of only workers' deputies, and in February 1917 on the initiative
          Bolsheviks appeared Soviets of workers 'and soldiers' deputies.
          While the Bolsheviks led the direct struggle of the masses on
          the streets.

            And now there are the "communists" who are renouncing February. “The overthrow of the tsarist autocracy? The Bolsheviks have nothing to do with it! The tsar was forced to abdicate by the generals! ” “February revolution? What do you!? The Bolsheviks have nothing to do with it! Lenin at that time was abroad, Stalin was in exile. These are all liberals, the fifth column! ”

            If they were in fact Communists, then they would answer such a charge as follows:

            - Yes, the Bolsheviks really did more than anyone else to overthrow the tsarist autocracy - for the tsarist autocracy was completely reactionary and did not give the working class the opportunity to fight for their liberation!

            Yes - the Bolsheviks really were the main driving force of the February revolution - for only through the bourgeois-democratic revolution could the proletariat come to the socialist revolution! Without February, there would be no October. February is the prologue of October!

            We do not hide and are not ashamed of this, we are not going to make excuses for the revolution - neither for the February, nor for the October! We are proud that our predecessors - the Bolsheviks - led the fight against the bloodthirsty beast - Russian tsarism. The fact that they resolutely led the working people to fight him, that in February of the seventeenth year they were in the front ranks of those who “smashed the head of the vile monster!”

            So the real communists would say in response to the malice of the enemies.

            Instead, our "communists" behave like a confused from a film by Gaidai, who yells: "Innocent I!". They are humiliatingly making excuses to the average man. They tear the shirt on their chest, proving that they have nothing to do with the February Revolution, and the October Revolution was actually not a revolution - but a counter-revolution, the Bolsheviks - not revolutionaries - but counter-revolutionaries, who restored the country's imperial power.

            Renouncing February, perverting its meaning, they also betray October. And they give a good trump card to the hands of the bourgeoisie, prompt the enemies of the working class - how to use the image of the October Revolution to fight the labor movement, for a new deception of the working people.

              There is a lot of pathos in your comment, but all your assumptions are incorrect .. The Bolsheviks are just right in evaluating the February revolution. The fact is that revolutions are not made by parties or even classes, but by the people. And the people also created the councils. Moreover, the councils appeared after the overthrow of the tsar. Read carefully the Kratsky course: "The idea of ​​the Soviets lived in the minds of the working masses, and they realized it the very next day after the overthrow of tsarism."

    there is nothing sadder and more shameful than the glorification of the White Guard bastard, who fought not with the Bolsheviks, but with the people, and therefore lost. touches the afftor’s remark that if the Wrangel had been alive by 1941 it would have fought on the side of the fascists, and yet the fascists fought not with the Bolsheviks, but with the people. I don’t see why to respect the traitors of my people.

    Lenin and his gop-company relied precisely on foreign mercenaries; foreigners did not fight at Wrangel.

    Are you raving or something? What Lenin had "foreign mercenaries"?


    Dear Comrade bistrov, colleague Kosnitsa does not rave. I won’t say anything for the Chinese, I don’t know, but everyone knew about the division of the notorious “Latvian Riflemen” in the Soviet Union. In Riga, even a monument was erected to them. And one more thing: just before the October Revolution from Helsingfors, a steamboat with a battalion (800 people) of Finnish “volunteers” fully equipped and armed came to St. Petersburg. And is that not "foreign mercenaries"? All of them, except money, had their own "interest". Which, I hope, you understand yourself.

    And the last: do not poke at strangers. Keep yourself within. hi
