Ukrainian "Dobrobatovtsy": touches to real portraits


As soon as it comes to the “voluntary battalions” that have gained the most unkind fame in the Donbas, which appeared in Ukraine in the spring of 2014 and played one of the main roles in turning the civil confrontation in the east of the country into a brutal armed conflict, the majority imagine a crowd of notorious nationalists, fanatical fans of Bandera and the UPA, thus realizing their cherished dream of a "massacre of Muscovites." In fact this is not true…


There is no doubt that adherents of ultranationalist ideology in "Azov", "Aydar", "Donbass", "Tornado" (* extremist organizations banned in the Russian Federation) were more than enough. However, it should be noted that “Banderaites” both in the most “non-fallow” and outside its borders rightly call mainly immigrants from its western regions. However, just this audience during the whole war in the Donbass didn’t really go to the front lines, believing that singing the praises of the “UPA * fighters” and cursing “Muscovites” was much more comfortable in their own kitchen under the burner with lard than in the fired trenches or at roadblocks. According to statistics, in the “Dobrobats” there were a lot of natives of those regions of Ukraine where nationalism never prevailed. So what's the deal?

This question, by and large, should be addressed primarily to psychologists. Both on the Maidan and in the punitive battalions generated by it, a huge (without exaggeration) percentage of people was the most ordinary ... losers! Whoever it was there: burnt out businessmen, dismissed civil servants for compromising reasons, failed public men. And creative personalities - from musicians to artists, even a dime a dozen! These are not idle inventions: in the first year or two of the “patriotic upsurge” (2014-2015) with biographies of such personalities who found their inglorious end in the Donbas, the local media and Internet portals of various “patriotic” organizations were simply overwhelmed. The material for research was rich.

All this audience, who failed to realize themselves in a normal life and categorically did not want to work hard to get any achievements both materially and socially, poured on the "Maidan", seeing in it the only opportunity to stand out, become famous, "rise" and soar over the intolerable gray everyday life. And they all got it in full! Official Kiev extolled the thugs who destroyed the country, proclaiming them “heroes” and rewarding them with higher orders. The next such opportunity for this company was the ATO, where, in truth, many of them were first sent almost forcibly, while promising an easy and burdensome walk on the corpses of the Separs. For the “Maidan” horses and the outcasts who came to them, this was an opportunity not to return to a dull ordinary life, a new exciting adventure. They went to fight and kill for the sake of entertainment, “for the sake of the process”, that’s the worst.

Mercantile moment? Up to 70% of “Dobrobatovites” initially did not appear on any lists and staffing, respectively, and did not receive monetary allowance. They were fed, as a rule, by representatives of yet another dashing tribe generated by that cursed time - “volunteers”, and not the state, which they supposedly “defended”. No, initially in the “battalions” there were also those who went to kill their own fellow citizens for the sake of profit and satisfaction of their sadistic inclinations. And in a very considerable amount. Looting, robbery, kidnapping for ransom, savage torture and reprisals - these “volunteer battalions” in the Donbass “became famous” in full.

In 2014, the number of cars, mainly prestigious and expensive “foreign cars” with license plates in Donetsk and Lugansk regions, sharply increased in Kiev and other regional centers. Refugees? Not at all. Yes, a certain percentage of those who fled from the war, saving the family and the remnants of property, among these drivers was. But for the most part, in the cabs of cars with “Donbass” numbers sat “marauders“ battalion ”. The business of cars stolen and "depressed" in the "ATO zone" from the local population has become one of the most profitable income items of "battalions". Mercedes, Lexus, BMW, sold for nothing, have become one of their "calling cards."

Of course, the matter was not limited to cars. Electronics, household appliances, even clothes and utensils - both from the looted warehouses and from the apartments of the "separatists", poured into the peaceful regions of Ukraine. The main merit in this again belongs to the "battalions". Those who went to war to loot, took their toll. This, in turn, exhaustively explains the readiness of many of their fighters to put their heads under bullets, without having an official status and, as a result, with money from the state. What other salary? They issued a machine gun - spin as you can. They were spinning ...

The most cunning leaders and fighters of “Dobrobat”, having orientated themselves on time, went to serve the oligarchs. The first among those was Igor Kolomoisky. But not the only one. Some of them over time were forced to go “arm” of the Armed Forces and the National Guard, having made a career in these structures. Someone, for example, the notorious Biletsky with his "Azov", managed to convert the bloody "heroism" into a political career, someone - in more or less money. The vast majority of the surviving battalion degenerated into the most ordinary bandits - which they, in fact, were from the very first day.

    In fact this is not true…

    All of these tricks are punishers. It does not matter how many representatives of the population the units are recruited. Punisher means Nazi! Nazi means Bandera! And the point!

        If the state issued weapons to the bandits, then in essence such a state is anti-people. And it doesn’t matter if these bandits were lucky or unlucky.

          In 1917, to whom did the Soviets issue weapons?

              On July 9 (22 new style), the committees and commissars of the 6th army telegraphed the Provisional Government: “The German offensive on the front of the XNUMXth army, which began on July XNUMX, is growing into an immeasurable disaster, possibly threatening the death of revolutionary Russia. In the mood of the units recently moved forward by the heroic efforts of the minority, a sharp and fatal turn was defined. The offensive impulse was quickly exhausted. Most parts are in a state of increasing decomposition. There is no longer any talk of power and obedience, persuasion and beliefs have lost their force - they are answered with threats, and sometimes with execution ... For hundreds of miles to the rear stretch strings of fugitives with guns and without them - healthy, peppy, feeling completely unpunished .

              you read - the sources describing the time of banditry and anarchy at the beginning of the revolution - tens of thousands ...

      Yes, there were banderlogs, units culled from the OUN, KUHN, etc. With the announcement of mobilization, the Potsriots unanimously rushed towards the Polish border. Dobrobands were equipped with all kinds of criminal activity, fined by cops, etc.

    And creative personalities - from musicians to artists, even a dime a dozen!

    We have a lot of such shifters in Russia ... especially among Moscow glamor ... sometimes it’s carried that even put them on the wall for Maidan radicalism and extremism ... this disease is definitely contagious to a weak mind emanated by money and impunity.
    They should be kept somewhere in a safe place for our society.

      A rare case when I agree with this author in something. Indeed, the labels hung by our media on residents of a neighboring state do not correspond to reality ...
      But I wonder who makes the revolution, if not listed by the author? Or is there a separate class of "successful revolutionary"?

    The punisher is often a felon. But at the same time he falls into the category of "fighters against aggression." Engaged in his former craft, he falls into the number of "untouchables."
    As the author correctly said, you will not find people from Galicia in the trenches, except at checkpoints.
    There are a lot of people from Krivoy Rog, where% of drug addicts are almost the highest in Ukraine.

    Each section of society has its own scum, villains and scum. In Ukrainian society there are a lot of such people, just a critical mass, which, due to its organization, armament and material security, suppresses the rest. In the hands of this scum there are FIVE million gun barrels, which is comparable in number to the PLA of China.

      There is a good saying - "trust in God, but don’t lie yourself." something did not help the “merciful little god” to the children of Donbass and burned out in Odessa, regardless of their religious affiliation. so the Dobrobatovites should keep the answer now, while still alive. and your point of view is unnecessary connivance to these garbage

    I had to talk with one person who was familiar with the Aydar well, mostly there were locals ... and there was no VSU for 150 km. He told different things about how the local police, who mowed under the Aidarites, robbed local farmers until they caught them, as a result they buried someone alive, someone sat in the basement for years ...

    The article is superficial, and the problems are much deeper. Not only adventure seekers, criminals, but also ordinary mobilized ones got into tricks. They were often territorially collected. In my opinion there are more than three dozen. Besides the odious ones, there are also "funny" battalions ..... The main feature of these formations is the ideological leadership and the approximate backbone of the junior commanders. The brains were washed there specifically. Everything was harsh and the retreat to the side was punished cruelly, everything was attributed to the war. Until the end we won’t know who gained these baht, volunteers are just the tip of the iceberg.

      I watched a couple of films (feature films) about the war in the Donbas by Ukrainian authors and those tapes that were created in Russia. Not for the sake of interest, but for the purpose of analysis - a striking difference and contrast. Everything is so subtle, and sometimes crudely ideological and directed against the enemy, namely the enemy. Everything about the fascists is stupid, brainless, separa drunkards and Russian cold-blooded killers. Sensitive, sentimental, loving their land and loved ones, Ukrainians. A game of feelings ... ..In essence, it’s scary what awaits those who are imbued with all this insanity when everything is over and the truth crawls out.

Yes, no, I know very well that now there are Bobrovals from Azov. which is even recognized by the US Senate as a neo-fascist organization ... Aidar, Donbass ... You know, Zvidkel is mostly people there - and were and are?

      Local from the Donbass, not only in LDNR, but also in good offices. Who divided into "separs" who are in good offices and vsu. In the same Novoaydar, the majority of the people were for a united Ukraine ... and the grandfather brought poisoned honey to the Aidarites and ambushes of separs, warned about them by local people in time and orders from the authorities to take specific positions, only very illogical and suspicious, as a result of exactly covered by the LDNR art - all this is a civil fratricidal war. I asked how to stop all this? He answered - to give everything under LDNR to Putin and the border under the castle, not to let anyone in or out, and a godfather in a neighboring village but on the other side, let him go on a visit through Kharkov ...

    The reason for all this mess, as always, is Money. There is a war going on and for some reason I’m sure that the Russian oligarchs together with the Ukrainian stupidly make money. And they don’t give a damn that people are dying. A simple example is Solovyov Popov Skabeev adventurers losers (Talented competent journalists are able to master the audience of a confined space (STUDIO) and that .... . Blah blah blah and what changes We talked (a good word suggests itself) got the money and after a couple of days again the same thing. If you twist their programs in the opposite direction then everything is the same. Meaning. What is changing. After the congresses of the Communist Party there was virgin land electrification then cosmonautics ...... after Vladimir Putin’s speech in Munich, the Armed Forces of Russia began to rise from their knees armaments money allowance social welfare changed noticeably for the better (I estimate it as a military pensioner) And what changes after the idle talk on TV K Unfortunately nothing. Money bags pay money. Press of various stripes promotes the thoughts they need. Well, lumpen and adventurers hope for easy money and go to slaughter.
