The memory of the Maykop massacre and historical unconsciousness


Monument to the victims of the Maykop massacre


After the Maykop massacre of September 1918, oddly enough, General Viktor Leonidovich Pokrovsky not only lost his rank and position, but also went up the career ladder. At the beginning of 1919, Pokrovsky, who was already called a hangman for his eyes, became the commander of the 1st Kuban Corps, which is a unit of the Armed Forces of the South of Russia. Moreover, the fact of discrediting the White movement by Pokrovsky was already clear to everyone. Later in numerous memoirs this will be explained by some striking lack of will and indulgence of Denikin in relation to senior officers. But, one way or another, Pokrovsky continued his bloody journey.

Pokrovsky in the memoirs of colleagues and accomplices


The White Guards who migrated abroad, including former friends of Pokrovsky, left enough memoirs to complete the portrait of the Maykop executioner. So, Baron Peter Wrangel, who also left a considerable “glory” on his own, wrote about the orders that Pokrovsky established in Yekaterinodar after the Maykop massacre:

“The most reckless revelry happened all the time in the military hotel of Yekaterinodar. At 11-12 p.m. a group of drunken officers appeared, the songwriters of the local guard division were introduced into the common room, and there was a carouser in front of the public. All these outrages were carried out in front of the headquarters of the commander in chief, the whole city knew about them, and at the same time nothing was done to stop this debauchery. "

And do not think that the Maykop massacre has become something out of the ordinary in the behavior of Pokrovsky. It is not for nothing that many authors attribute the authorship of the phrases “The view of the hanged man revives the landscape” and “The view of the gallows improves the appetite”. Back in July 1918, when Viktor Leonidovich took Yeysk and the local bourgeoisie met him with “bread and salt,” the gallows were first built in the city center in the city garden. When even the officers began to criticize such a decision, Pokrovsky answered them: "The gallows have their meaning - everyone will be quiet." The gallows were supplemented by widespread flogging of the population. So, the Cossacks of Pokrovsky flashed the teacher of the village of Dolzhanskaya for the "evil language", and at the same time the midwife from the village of Kamyshevatskaya. Pokrovsky installed the exact same gallows in Anapa at the end of August 1918.

The memory of the Maykop massacre and historical unconsciousness

Andrey G. Shkuro

And here is what Andrei Grigoryevich Shkuro, a direct friend of Pokrovsky, recalled, a lieutenant general who joined the Nazis and received the rank of SS gruppenfuhrer:

“Where Pokrovsky’s headquarters stood, there were always many who were executed and hanged without trial, on one suspicion of sympathy for the Bolsheviks.”

The "glory" of Pokrovsky instantly spread throughout the Kuban region and the Black Sea province, which did not prevent him from continuing his bloody terror. Nikolai Vladimirovich Voronovich, an officer, a participant in the Russo-Japanese and World War I, the commander of the "green" detachment, who never had warm feelings for the Bolsheviks, described his impressions of Pokrovsky’s atrocities:

“A peasant from the village of Izmailovka Volchenko, who arrived in Sochi, recounted even more nightmarish scenes that were playing before his eyes when Maykop occupied the detachment of General Pokrovsky. Pokrovsky ordered the execution of all the local council members and the rest of the prisoners who had not managed to escape from Maykop. To intimidate the population, the execution was public. At first it was supposed to hang all those sentenced to death, but then it turned out that the gallows would not be enough. Then feasted all night and pretty tipsy Cossacks turned to the general with a request to allow them to chop off the heads of the convicted. The general allowed ... Very few killed right away, after the first hit the majority of the drafts jumped up with gaping wounds on their heads, they fell back to the chopping block and again began to chop ... Volchenko, a young, 25-year-old guy, became completely gray from the experience in Maykop ... "



Nikolai Vladimirovich Voronovich

The cruelty and criminality of Pokrovsky’s actions left their mark in the memoirs of the former White Guards already in exile, which is noteworthy. Even against the backdrop of a global catastrophe for the White movement, tyranny and bloodiness of Pokrovsky gave him a special place. Here is what Lieutenant-General, hero of the First World War and personnel officer Yevgeny Isaakovich Dostovalov wrote in his Essays:

“The path of such generals as Wrangel, Kutepov, Pokrovsky, Shkuro, Postovsky, Slashchev, Drozdovsky, Turkul, Manstein (meaning“ one-armed devil ”Vladimir Vladimirovich Manstein), and many others were dotted with hanged and executed without any reason and trial. They were followed by many others, with lesser ranks, but no less bloodthirsty ... However, admittedly, General Pokrovsky, who was killed in Bulgaria, was the most bloodthirsty and cruel in the army. ”


The resignation and death of Pokrovsky


Despite his reputation, Viktor Leonidovich was dismissed only at the beginning of 1920. Moreover, the root cause of the resignation was not mass executions without trial, but the complete decomposition of the troops under the command of Pokrovsky. At the same time, Pokrovsky himself continued to resent the fact that the available military forces in his hands were simply not enough to solve the tasks. As if regular drinking and folly of him were irrelevant.


Pyotr Semyonovich Makhrov

Here, for example, is what Lieutenant General Pyotr Semyonovich Makhrov recalled in his book “In the White Army of General Denikin. Notes by the Chief of Staff of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the South of Russia ":

“Pokrovsky’s headquarters rather resembled the camp of a robber chieftain: no law, arbitrariness and bacchanalia of his drunk and ignorant“ retinue ”were an everyday occurrence. The nominal chief of staff, General Siegel, did not play any role. The duty general, General Petrov, served only as the executor of Pokrovsky’s will, including executions without trial. ”

Even more ironic are the recollections of the aforementioned Shkuro, who personally participated in Pokrovsky's drinking bouts:

“I arranged an honorary meeting with the general. In front of the shelves we built, we drank the “you” with Pokrovsky; our Cossacks were brothers; the villages rejoiced. "

As a result, in 1920 Pokrovsky was out of work and arrived in Yalta, where he fully showed his adventurism and tyranny. In Yalta, he demanded the complete subordination of the local authorities to his own person, carried out a "mobilization", which consisted in the detention of all men who got on the street who could not even keep a rifle. Naturally, this “army” quickly fell apart and fled. But Pokrovsky continued to hope for a high post in the army. Victor's hopes collapsed only after the election of Wrangel as the commander of the All-Union Socialist League, and then the Russian Army. The Baron considered Pokrovsky an adventurer and an intriguer, and therefore openly disdained them.

Finally, Pokrovsky, unhindered by his means, who became the object of close attention of counterintelligence for the habit of traveling with suitcases of gold and precious stones, migrated abroad. For two years, this bloody adventurer wandered around Europe until he settled in Bulgaria, planning to create a terrorist organization of Russian migrants to carry out actions against the Bolsheviks in Russia. And he succeeded, but only in part.


Victor Leonidovich Pokrovsky

The first operation to secretly transfer a group of anti-Bolsheviks to raise an uprising in the Kuban ended in arrest in the port of Varna. Pokrovsky managed to escape. Realizing that Pokrovsky’s new gang would not be able to organize terror in the Kuban, they began hunting for activists of the so-called “returnees” movement, that is, those who dreamed of returning to their Soviet homeland. 25-year-old Alexander Ageev was killed. After this crime, local authorities were forced to start an investigation and put Pokrovsky on the wanted list.

The general decided to escape to Yugoslavia, but in the town of Kyustendil (now not far from the border with Macedonia), policemen attacked his trail due to anonymous denunciation. During the detention, Pokrovsky resisted and died from a bayonet strike in the chest. Thus ended the life of a bloody general, a lover of power and an executioner of thousands of innocent people.

Clear history for politics


Unfortunately, the political situation in our country affects history more serious than facts and eyewitness accounts. Since the 90s of the last century, the trend towards an exclusively complimentary reference to both the White movement and its participants has only gained momentum. It came to fantastic cynicism: in 1997, the monarchist organization “For Faith and Fatherland!” filed a request for the rehabilitation of generals who collaborated with Germany during World War II and executed in the USSR. Among these "generals" were such types as Krasnov, Shkuro and Domanov.


Monument in Maykop

But in order to wash away the blood, it is necessary to forget the history itself. Therefore, on various resources of very peculiar “non-White Guardsmen”, from which he is smitten with a crunch of French rolls and splashes of champagne, the biography of most of the White movement’s figures has been cleaned up to indecent. So, in the biography of Pokrovsky on most such sites there is not even a mention of the Maykop massacre and the decomposition of the troops entrusted to him. This looks especially piquant against the background of the fact that the leaders of the White Guards themselves wrote in their memoirs about former colleagues.

But the memory of the Maykop massacre is still alive. Still in Maykop there is a monument to the victims of the Maykop massacre - the Bolsheviks executed by Pokrovsky. In fact, this is a monument to all the victims of that tragedy, and it, alas, is the only one.

    And reconciliation would be nice, but it doesn’t work. Because fans of the white movement do not calm down at all, recall the sins of the Reds both real and imagined, more often invented, therefore we have to remember the White Terror, and since millions of raped Germans are hanged on Soviet troops in Europe, this is a falsification of history, which in general indeed, but as for the Red Army, among other things mass and popular, this is such a reconciliation, one-sided.

        Yes, the monument is in a deplorable state. However, why be surprised, it is surprising that he has not yet been demolished. Our authorities now have white in trend. Again, what kind of power, such and heroes. Tell me who your idol is and I’ll tell you who you are.
        Pokrovsky’s headquarters rather resembled the camp of a robber chieftain: no law, arbitrariness and bacchanalia of his drunk and ignorant “retinue” were an everyday occurrence.

        Why not bandits a la the 90s? But these bandits are now in power. So I have not been surprised at anything for a long time.

          Out of delicacy, I will not give the biblical commandments, but as an example, you can listen to the song of Yu.Vizbor - Do not make yourself an idolso to speak, both ours and yours.

            With biblical commandments, this is clearly not your address. I know the atheist and I live not according to God's commandments, but according to human laws.
            And about the idols, it’s you telling your patient about Poklonskaya’s head. It is she who, with tears of tenderness, kisses the bloody king and rushes with his portrait along the Immortal regiment, where he and she certainly have nothing to do.

                        With the bakers, all conversations are meaningless, you can never convince us of your innocence, and we are also unlikely to ever convince you of our own. So the Civil War continues and apparently never ends. More precisely, it will end when either your minority completely destroys the people, which in principle is not possible, or the people again get tired of enduring people like you. How does it end for you I think it is unnecessary to remind ?!

    There will be no reconciliation. Remember. Reconciliation is a bluff. Created. If you paid attention to only one side, the neo-monarchists and others like them.
    1. What does it mean ,, monarchists ,,? Pokrovsky and his kind - ,, monarchists ,,? Which side? This is ,, ordinary non-human ,,. There is such a variety, homo sapiens. They don’t care about political orientation (which, we note, is indicative and symbolic). Today ,, white ,, served, tomorrow - ,, brown ,, ... There were ,, red ,, geeks. Leiba Bronstein (Trotsky) ,, red ,, served, and at the end of life, brown ,, services ,, in Russia, offered. The ice ax Mercader stopped the non-humans. ..
      Adult people should know that not all bipeds are human people. And to us with N and m and never, to merge in fraternal embraces ,,. What is good for these ,, TVORIN ,, (in Ukrainian sounds good) is bad for us - ,, CHOLOVIKOV ,,.
      ,, Tvorin ,, the White had more at times - they could not lose the red. Then, 100 years ago ...
      White had a task - to call to order, the unbridled Russian PEOPLE who refused to roll Russian-speaking ,, UFO ,, (ordinary ordinary people) on their neck. They wanted to drive PEOPLE into a stall. They did not need a king for this. Then they did not remember him. ,, Sits in Tobolsk - well, let him sit ... ,,.
      It’s another matter that the “monarchist theme” can be used on occasion to their own advantage. For example, for the restoration of capitalism in Russia, Yeltsin used it. Then the Romanovs became frequent in Russia, the newspapers and magazines were appropriate, oh shi ... After all, the Russian soul senses that, "tsar-father" is better than some kind of, "resident". On this and g r and l and.
      And now, they began to play, joyfully. With pleasure, they interfere with the mud, the sensible and loyal institution of the monarchy and ,, pranks ,, Kremlin ,, inventors and rationalizers ,,

        Yes, and Mr. Comrade Slashev, for this part, was a “big lover.” A letter from a simple Crimean railwayman Medvedev to Wrangel, describing the exploits of the hanging general who had been drugged by morphine and cocaine and triggered an investigation into Slashev.
        ... Wrangel covered the morphine general as best he could, appreciating his military talent. But there is a limit to everything. The reason for the trial of Slashchev was the appeal of the working-traveler Yevgeny Medvedev to Wrangel that, under the influence of morphine, Slashchev was guilty of numerous executions without the trial of railway workers. It got to the point that the head of the Wrangel counterintelligence, V.K. Orlov was forced to give a special order "On the non-execution of orders of General Slashchev on railway transport." Then Slashchev began to hang up without permission. An investigation carried out at the direction of Wrangel confirmed Slashchev's guilt. They remembered him both cocaine, and the executions of the innocent, and the unauthorized second St. George’s cross, and demonstrative flaunting not in the form of clothes, but in the form that he himself invented for himself. The punishment provided for the death penalty. But the petition of Ulagpay saved Slashchev from her. He was stripped of all ranks and orders and expelled from the army with a shame by a court of honor. The “Hanging General" under escort was forcibly put on a ship and sent to Turkey [17] ...

          Slashchev, unlike these murderers, hung both red, and white, and green, and black-brown. He imposed discipline, but the truth is sometimes brutal. But the fact that he hung up and white, too, regardless of ranks and merits, for violation of discipline, I personally respect. The worst thing in a war for the army is decomposition, looting, alarmism, this is the death of the army. And Slashchev fought this with the most severe and cruel methods. That is why its parts were the most combat-ready. And what did the parts of the skin and the mammoth turn into after their raid? In a gang of robbers, rapists and looters. They finally lost their combat readiness by the end of the raid, loaded themselves with convoys with the loot and thought not about continuing the hostilities, but about how to bring all the loot to their huts.
          So do not confuse God's gift with fried eggs, these are completely different things!

              Yes, it does! And what is wrong?
              1. A combat officer who did not pass through the PMV at headquarters and who has been injured, from which he became addicted to drugs.
              2. During the Civil War, its units are the most combat-ready, and it is precisely thanks to the most severe discipline that Slashchev introduced in his troops. Its parts were precisely parts, and not a bunch of bandiuk. For looting, he was shot and hanged for his sweet soul.
              3. A person actually fought “for the one and the indivisible,” and when he realized how wrong he was, he acknowledged his mistakes and urged others to do so. He returned to his homeland and, as he could, faithfully served her until his end.
              What does not suit you?

                Colleagues, I do not want you to swear together. But the fact that he returned and taught the red commanders ... and he did not remember the merits ... speaks only of the insight of the Bolsheviks. soldier To get an example of such a “returnee” and put it in your service is five plus points! what
                In the end, he really played a role in educating at least one generation of the commanders of our new army. hi I hope his experience came in handy after fifteen years.

        There were plenty of such frostbitten at the whites. It is enough to recall Ataman Annenkov and Baron Ungern, they were still animals, they had nothing human.

        yes, that adventurer, "field commander." Before WWI, he seemed to be the manager of someone's estate - he lived a gray and measured life. And then ... social upheavals push him up!
        At first he was behind the reds, then he turned white. In Pskov he made such a thing that he stood on end - he liked to hang it. He was also distinguished by his love for "the accumulation of other people's wealth in his own pockets." And he finished badly. But, in fact - the next child of the era of great upheaval. There were a lot of them then, very many. And, in fact, from all sides. This is one example. Examples of adventurer and executioner.
        Igor, by the way, from the same Ungern on the TV channel "History", an inarticulate young man, the Antonovsky novel is already sculpting a hero .... Russian hero... although the word "schizophrenic", I think, would be more suitable! what

    History is diligently cleansed by current capitalists. So in the Orenburg Museum of Local Lore, where I have not been since the 70s of the last century and visited again only in the spring of 2019, the whole exhibition looks like this: first dinosaurs walked around the territory of the region, then there were wild tribes from which the boiler was demonstrated, then Pushkin arrived . That's it, the story is over. Neither about the White-Cossack raid on the city on April 4, 1918, nor about the defense of the city in 1919, for which he was awarded the honorary banner of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee (in fact, Orenburg is the city is the hero of the Civil, only 2 more cities were awarded such an award - Petrograd and Tsaritsyn), nor about the Great Patriotic War there is nothing. Even about Gagarin is not mentioned. Everything is very politically correct and faceless.

    Due to the fact that the Bolsheviks de jure at one time sided with Kaiser Germany, that is, they betrayed Russia: the article on treason was applicable to them, respectively, General Pokrovsky was entitled to deal with them according to the laws of the war, exactly as he did with the traitors I .AT.

      Ezekiel 25-17 (Andrew)
      In view of the fact that the Bolsheviks de jure once sided with Kaiser Germany
      How did they become?
      accordingly, General Pokrovsky was entitled to act with them under the laws of wartime
      Do not you think that you have beguiled something? Actually, it was also the interim government that launched the Russian derbans between the countries of the Entente. And then, and who gave Pokrovsky such powers?

    Terror is a common thing in a civil war: for example, during a similar war in the USA, all participants widely used death camps, massacres of civilians, etc.

    In 1945-52, in Western Ukraine, Belarus and the Baltic states, opponents of the Soviet regime (Bandera, forest brothers, etc.) used terror against their compatriots of a different political orientation.

    In the 1960s, the Viet Cong destroyed the South Vietnamese who refused to cooperate with him. In the 1980s, the Afghan opposition did the same, in the 2010s the Syrian opposition.

    Regarding the article, it should be noted the abundance of emotions and very selective quoting:

    For example, "And this is what Andrei Grigoryevich Shkuro, a close friend of Pokrovsky, recalled."
    Of course, they fought together, but as regards friendly relations - a strong exaggeration.
    If we recall the “Notes of the White Partisan”, then:
    "... Pokrovsky did not skimp on witty things like:" nature loves man "," the sight of the hanged man revives the landscape ", etc. This inhumanity of his, especially applied judiciously, was disgusting to me. His favorite, a bastard and a scoundrel, esaul Razderishin, tried to please the executioner as a bloodthirsty instinct for his boss and corrupted the Cossacks, who were accustomed in the end to not put a penny on human life. This did not go unnoticed and was subsequently one of the reasons for the failure of the White movement. "
    By the way, Shkuro, the beloved here at VO Slashchev, was at one time the chief of staff.

    Dostovalov and Makhrov should be cited with much greater caution (although it is clear why the author chose them): the first "returnee" to the USSR wrote his memoirs there (doused all his colleagues with slops, but it didn’t help - they shot him in 1938), the second is active " deforon, "who wrote penitential tears to the Soviet embassy (but he was smart enough to stay in exile).
    Dostovalov’s reputation in the Volunteer Army and during the years of the Civil War was still that; he was suspected of open treason. The same General Timanovsky directly stated to Kursk: "... At least Dostalov will not know the time of the start of the attack." Throughout the world war he lounged about at headquarters, where he very doubtfully knocked out the Order of St. George. However, the details of the biography of this figure are not of particular interest in the context of the article.

    As a result, in 1920 Pokrovsky was out of work and arrived in Yalta, where he fully showed his adventurism and tyranny. In Yalta, he demanded the complete subordination of the local authorities to his own person, carried out a "mobilization", which consisted in the detention of all men who got on the street who could not even keep a rifle.

    Pokrovsky did this not in the framework of tyranny, but in order to suppress the famous "Oryol" (speeches by Captain Orlov).

    And reconciliation would be nice, but it doesn’t work.

    not an example, but study / research / publication / conclusions.
    I hope that the author will not stop only on examples of white terror, but will continue new publications, already about red terror.
    // Great plan! Finish it with Dzerzhinsky. Under the guise of “green” (we will later dump them) we will go 10–20 miles and outweigh the kulaks, priests, landowners. Bonus: 100.000 p. for the hanged one // one from the instructions of Vladimir Ilyich

    War is a terrible thing and is always accompanied by such atrocities, it is a pity but humanity is not soon recovering from this.
