In a number of countries of Eastern Europe, for example, in the Baltic countries, Poland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, a genuine war unfolded with monuments to Soviet soldiers who liberated these countries from fascism. Everyone understands that this struggle is not so much with monuments as with historical the truth about the role of the Soviet Union and its armed forces in the cause of victory in the Great Patriotic and World War II. The Russian Foreign Ministry is always decisively responding to these egregious acts. But the Foreign Ministry is a diplomatic structure, and, accordingly, its reaction cannot go beyond diplomatic etiquette.
Unfortunately, diplomatic etiquette is perceived by many as weakness, indecision and even helplessness. Numerous social groups formed on the basis of inciting ethnic hatred, Russophobia and other phobias associated with everything that does not glorify the exclusivity of only their nation (yes, and their patron too) understand only the language of power.
The diplomatic framework does not allow to go beyond the bounds of decency. And now not only helpless monuments are crumbling - after all, the fallen heroes can no longer protect themselves. Hatred of the brutal local population also falls on guests from Russia, and now, Belarus and even Ukraine. The fact of the beating in Poland of a group of five tourists, among whom was affected, attention, a girl (!), Was commented on Russian television on February 12, p. d. What is the difference between this group of "Slavic brothers" of seven people and a pack of vicious stray dogs?
The distortion of the historical truth about the causes of the Second World War, coupled with a genuine information war unleashed against Russia in some countries, received a positive response among young people, adults, among whom there are many politicians. The seed lay on the soil that had been washed away by plentiful lies. But the Red Army at the cost of huge sacrifices saved the population of these countries from destruction and slavery, since the Slavs were not recognized by the Nazis as the Aryan race. But who here remembers this?
What can we do to save the honor and memory of our great ancestors? The author has long had an idea of an asymmetric answer in this regard. But it can be implemented only with the energetic support of the president of the country, this project looks too large. Unfortunately, it was not possible to break through the circulation through existing electronic services. Therefore, I am publishing this open letter to V.V. on this portal, designed to support the security issues of the Motherland. Putin is the leader of the nation.
Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich!
Taking into account the approaching date of the 75th anniversary of the Victory over fascist Germany and its satellites, as well as in anticipation of the celebration of another great date - the 800th anniversary of the memory of the Holy Blessed Prince Alexander Nevsky, I propose a project whose main essence boils down to the following provisions:
• Create a Memorial to Saved Heroes on the territory of, for example, the region of the Leningrad Region and carry out the removal of monuments scolded by modern vandals to their homeland for installation in the Memorial.
• Within the framework of the Memorial, create an interactive museum with access to it through the World Wide Web, filling with content in many languages, especially those countries from which monuments will be taken out to save them.
• During the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Victory, organize the laying of a symbolic stone in the foundation of the “Alley of Saved Heroes” by you personally together with the heads of state participating in the celebrations.
• The Memorial should include not only the bright side, but also the “dark” side. Our descendants should know those who desecrated the sacred names of fallen heroes, as well as those power structures that closed their eyes, and some supported and even organized vandalism of the XNUMXst century. Thus, historical memory materializes in stone.
I believe that this project will serve as a hard lesson for those who launched a bacchanal of war with monuments to fallen heroes who can no longer fend for themselves.
But the Homeland must take all measures to put in its rightful place the entire cohort of lovers of distortion of historical truth for the sake of momentary political goals.
With a proposal to support the project, I applied to the All-Russian Federation of Russian Martial Arts - ROSS (President - Grandmaster A. Retyunskikh), St. Petersburg Club of Knights of the Order of Alexander Nevsky (Chairman of the Presidium V. Kobyako), Rostotsky Cultural and Educational Foundation “A the dawns here are quiet ”(chairman A. Polyakov). All organizations supported the project, a collective letter was even sent to the Governor of the Leningrad Region A.Yu. Drozdenko (Entrance to the Office of the Governor No. 19-826 / 2020 of 28.01.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX).
However, apparently, the project is too large to be possible without your support.
As a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the USSR and the Russian Federation, a veteran of labor and the son of a front-line soldier who went to the front at the age of 17 with an anti-tank rifle in his hands and, therefore, to the front line, went through battles and through Poland, where he was wounded, he’s ready to take part in the project together with organizations that supported me, any other people with human faces in the name of saving the honor and memory of the dead heroes.
I am attaching a brief presentation to this appeal explaining some aspects of the project.
