About the museums of the “Soviet occupation” in the former Soviet republics

98

Among the various striking manifestations of anti-Sovietism and Russophobia, elevated to the rank of state policy, a special place is occupied by various museums dedicated to the "Soviet occupation" and in some cases its particularly "terrifying" manifestations, which are available in a number of former republics of the Soviet Union. It is sad to say, but the number of such “cultural institutions” is steadily growing over time. True, the quality remains at the same level ...


Expositions devoted to the years of “living under the yoke of totalitarianism” are available in Georgia, Ukraine, the Baltic countries, and Uzbekistan. The greatest zeal in “exposing the crimes of the oppressors” was shown in the “unfettered” one, having also set up a separate “Holodomor Museum” in Kiev, which, as you know, was rampant exclusively in Ukraine and was planned by someone you knew.

You can talk about these institutions almost ad infinitum, marveling at how bizarrely they manage to interweave unconsciousness, ingratitude and the ability to please the most base manifestation of the political situation. But all of them, by and large, are exactly the same. Although the museums of the Soviet occupation in Riga, Tallinn, Tbilisi and Kiev, at least the Museum of Genocide Victims in Vilnius or the Museum of Remembrance for Victims of Repression in Tashkent. The main feature that unites them is forced lies, without which their very existence loses all meaning.

In the museums of the Baltic states, however, there is one specific feature. Their organizers made every effort to put a sign of absolute equality between the periods when these republics were part of the USSR and the time when they were under the heel of the Nazi invaders. The simplest example is that in Tallinn, visitors at the entrance are greeted by two impressive metal structures that represent “steam locomotives”. On one is a swastika, on the second is a red star. In the womb of one lies the bust of Lenin, in the second - of Hitler. Such artistic techniques are designed to hammer into the head not particularly burdened with intelligence and knowledge in stories visitors a simple idea about the identity of two totalitarian regimes.

Moreover, the emphasis is often placed on the fact that the "Soviet occupation" lasted longer than the German one, and, therefore, "did more harm." The entire large-scale Museum of Genocide Victims in Lithuania, located in the building of the former NKVD-MGB-KGB of the republic, is 99% devoted to the "horrors of the bloody Gulag", right down to the recreated with special relish and scope in the basement of the "real Soviet prison". Holocaust victims, Jews tortured and killed during the years of Nazi occupation, received minimal attention. And about the role in the extermination of Jews (and not only them, but also people of other nationalities, including Russians) in those terrible years, voluntary accomplices of the Nazis from the "indigenous population" played - not a word.

In general, the unscrupulous exploitation of prison-camp subjects in all without exception “museums of occupation” suggests the idea of ​​directly unhealthy addictions on the verge of mental disorder. In almost every museum you will find carefully, even I would say, lovingly selected collections of various "executioner" tools and fixtures, most of which most likely have nothing to do with the NKVD and the KGB. But how it looks! The cell doors arranged in a row in Tallinn are exactly the same doors, which lead dreary horror to visitors in Tbilisi ... Patterned work aimed at having those who had the misfortune to cross the threshold of such establishments firmly believed: in the Soviet Union there was nothing but penal servants, convicts, escorts, lattices and "thorns", and did not exist at all.

Another common feature is the “objects of Soviet life”, which are present there a little less than the “genuine personal belongings of victims of repression”. They are selected in such a way as to cause a maximum of disgust by the era of the USSR. If a telephone box, then with broken glass and a folding device. If the machine is selling soda, then it is also all rumpled and pepper-scratched. About monstrous rusty irons, disgusting furniture, except perhaps as a props for horror films, no less disgusting kind of clothes and utensils and say nothing. In the same Tallinn, the theme of the “Soviet automobile industry” is represented by a scattered “invalid” and, we must pay tribute, “Lada”. Also, however, having not the best view.

Common features that unite all these expositions: extreme tendentiousness, an attempt to imagine the time spent in the family of Soviet peoples as a period of endless “repression”, “dispossession”, beggarly life and hard labor. Moreover, the vast majority of them do not make much difference for an earlier time, that is, the pre-Soviet period. In the same Georgian and Uzbek museums with great pathos, they talk about "oppression" and "oppression" during the time of the Russian Empire. That is, there is a cultivation of Russophobia in its purest form.

According to the reviews of the vast majority of professional historians, the cognitive value of such museums is negligible, if not negative at all. But the ideological component, aimed at fooling and nurturing hatred, as practice shows, alas, is quite effective.

They, of course, will not tell about the growth of the economy and the population of the "occupied" republics, they will not show the evidence of those who, being the representative of the most ordinary Soviet family, received excellent education and went up the career ladder from the workshop to the head of the whole industry, it will not say a word about how industry, culture, and medicine were raised in the republics during the Soviet period. Just because it does not fit into that order and those goals and objectives that were originally set for such, so to speak, institutions.

      In Uglich, in the museum of the hydroelectric power station about the Soviet occupation, more space is allocated than the dam itself.

    Mr. Kharaluzhny needs to go to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. There, on the lower level, there is such a museum of "Soviet occupation and victims of communist repressions" that not only Ukrainians, but even Poles can strangle themselves with envy. From Russia they take the example of the so-called. limitrophes.

          There, neither more nor less:
          Museum exposition located in the gallery of the current temple. It is based on materials telling about the history of the Temple - a monument in honor of the victory in the Patriotic War of 1812, about his role and significance in the life of Russia.
          A separate section is devoted the history of the construction, destruction and reconstruction of the Cathedral of Christ Savior. Among its unique exhibits are competitive projects of the Temple and the Palace of Soviets with interiors, fragments of marble memorial slabs from the former church with half-erased inscriptions, which served as steps in the Tretyakov Gallery in Soviet times

          Genuine exhibits are of particular interest: miraculously surviving after the explosion, the mortgage plaque of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior of 1839, as well as works of monumental, visual and decorative and applied art.

            And all individual cases, as a rule, were true.

            But when it will be investigated that the Communists were drowned in order to stop the spread of truth and people's self-esteem in complete impotence, and the priests were spread rot for inciting political hostility and calls for terrorism (I specifically give today's wording), then it will only be possible to realize those events that Today we are trying in every possible way to avoid.

              Even at the cost of dying out the inner thirst for justice.

              I came to this museum by accident. We brought our grandchildren to the New Year tree in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. And only children were allowed on it. And it was very cold outside. Therefore, we went to the temple. We had to wait about an hour and a half. I carefully examined everything and accidentally stumbled upon this exhibition. I was in shock. Priests must bear love for God and people for each other. And at this exhibition, everything is riddled with such hatred that only you wonder. Most of the exposition, by the way, is dedicated not to the KhS temple, but to the persecution of the church in 20-30 years.
              Now essentially. The Bolsheviks (mainly the so-called Commissars, most of whom were not Orthodox) blew up temples, blew up. But at the same time they built schools. How many literate priests were there in Russia and how many were under the communists? That is the whole answer.

        The full story of the construction of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior is very * smelling * .....
        There, and raising funds for the construction and theft of almost more than half of the funds and the construction itself is such that even during the construction they struggled with wall cracks and subsidence of the entire structure. Since the curators were representatives of the reigning house, there were no investigations into the thefts.
        Take an interest in justifying the demolition of that building. The engineers and architects who wrote the demolition report were believers.

        The first temple.
        construction managers were accused of embezzlement and put on trial. The process lasted eight years [22]. (Wiki)

        Not built
        The second temple.
        The emperor also chose a new place on Volkhonka, which at that time was called Chertolje; the buildings there were bought up and demolished, including the Alekseevsky Convent - a monument of the XNUMXth century, later transferred to Krasnoye Selo. The people have preserved the tradition that Mother Superior, dissatisfied with the demolition of historical buildings and the transfer of the Alekseyev monastery, cursed the builders and predicted: "This place should be empty"[25].

        Ruined.

      Well, of course! Sure! Everyone knows about this "masterpiece" am I am now reading the book "Constructivist towns in Sverdlovsk 20s - 30s." Nobody knows that the improvement of living conditions, work, study, the emergence of sanatoriums and stadiums has begun since the 20s! In different cities. And it was interrupted with the beginning of the war.

      The center of this "savior" of the people of Russia from a good life was erected in Sverdlovsk with the active participation of his heir - appointee, with the letter "Pu ...".
      The one who raised our retirement age, who stubbornly refuses to introduce a tax on the rich, who pursues such a "talented" domestic and foreign policy that the country is sliding into a political, economic and demographic hole right before our eyes!
      The student became worthy of his teacher, cursed by all of Russia!

      Among the various striking manifestations of anti-Soviet and Russophobia,

      No need to put an equal sign between anti-Soviet and Russophobic. The Russian people suffered from Soviet power no less than other peoples.

      In general, the USSR was a prison of peoples and one should not be surprised that the liberated peoples do not like their captor, despite the fact that he gave a roof, a balancer and a robe. We must respect our neighbors and then there will be a chance for respect on their part.

      Thanks to this "prison of peoples", these same peoples have preserved their national identity, culture, traditions, and yes, it was the USSR that initiated the creation of Israel.

            We flogged in our city. on the exit. Such a place was on Sennaya Square, where there is now a small cafe opposite the metro building. Barin or someone else wrote a note and the punished one was supposed to come there on his own, maybe a kilometer of meters for 10-12. Although from Okhta, at least from the Vyborg side. Be flogged, then go back. At least a man, at least women
            Also put in that museum information about the dead up to 30 years. Such was the average age, life expectancy

On the territory of the USSR, all 100 years after the October Revolution, there are two fundamentally different people in EVERYTHING - the Soviet and your anti-Soviet, including the fact that your anti-Soviet people, the ANTI-Soviet, is your "ideology" and the "history" of your country, and the only you justify your capture of the USSR, the responsibility for the capture and dismemberment of which you cowardly blamed on the Soviet communists, because you have nothing good either FOR yourself, FOR what you yourself have done, nor FOR your country and people,

        It was in the USSR (especially under Stalin) that they tried to grow a new MAN, not a consumer, but a creator. And it almost succeeded. But only with the coming to power of Judas Khrushchev, everything again slipped into banal consumerism. Apparently human nature is very difficult to break.

          These guys were always "in bulk". But recently I learned about how in 1919 two republics of the UPR and ZUNR appeared in Ukraine, and between them there was "Zluka". But the former, led by S. Petliura, fought against the Russians, and the latter fought against the Poles. The Poles took Lvov and threw back the GA (Galician Army) across the Zbruch River. Here the "Petliurites" and the GA merged, and together with the Poles took Kiev. Petliura had an army of 15 people. but there were about 000 "bayonets", then there were 2000 in the GA, and the GA was called UGA (Ukrainian Galician Army). But after the capture of Kiev, these lads did not want to fight the Russians, and went over to Denikin's side, the result was "Separation". Having fought a little together with the "Denikinites", the Galicians went over to the side of the Bolsheviks, and the army received the name CHUGA (Chervona Ukrainian Galician Army). And now, understand these anti-Sovietists, especially in Ukraine.

            In Ukraine, it’s difficult to understand anything at all. Their small-town seluk mentality does not lend itself at all to a normal understanding. It all comes down to several postulates:
            1. My hut is on the edge, I don’t know anything.
            2. That I do not squeeze, so I bite.
            3. Take it from a neighbor, everything that lies badly. What lies well, especially.
            4. Neighbor, let me eat something, otherwise I have nothing to shit at your door.
            5. And us for sho ?!
            So where did they get all this from? Maybe the fact is that, since the time of the Batu invasion, this region has been constantly under someone’s third-party control (ON, Poland, the Crimean Khanate, Austria-Hungary)? In general, I don’t understand how the part of the essence of the Russian people turned into Ukrainians?
            I catch myself thinking that the word Ukrainian has recently acquired an abusive character for me, worse than a fascist.

      This is not for ordinary people, it is an axiom that anti-Sovietism is ALWAYS equal to Russophobia. The enemies of the Communists who seized the republics of the USSR, including the RSFSR, immediately began to destroy not only the Soviet, but also the Russian. And what is their relationship to centuries-old Russia before the October Revolution? The enemies of the Communists who captured the RSFSR pulled out of the entire period of pre-revolutionary Russia only the reign of one - the last Russian monarch, to create another heap of their anti-Soviet myths, and the remaining enemies of the Communists - the pre-revolutionary period is how the Russians occupied and oppressed them.

      And then who will we blame, with whom to argue? So that again there is one general, straight line - approvals. The opposition should be regardless of whether we like it or not.

    If a telephone box, then with broken glass and a folding device ...

    Yeah, but the local unfortunate people broke and destroyed, showing their struggle with the Soviet government, introducing telephone communications, electric irons and other achievements of their time.

    Well, what can I say? There are many museums in Russia, and it would be necessary in every local history museum, which is in every regional city of the Russian Federation, to put up a stand where to place calculations in figures, how much this region lost to its own detriment during the Soviet era, transferring its resources to the so-called " fraternal republics "or, conversely, acquired when he was helped by" brothers "in the USSR. Such documents are not difficult to lay out, because the archives of the State Planning Commission, the State Committee for Supply and the Allied ministries and departments have survived. Let our youth know the truth, so as not to feel indebted to someone, or should be grateful for the help provided.

    Suppose they put shacks in the museums (what happened), and next to them are mock-ups of factories (what the bastards have built by the occupants), well, and the third mock-ups of dilapidated factories and residents standing with outstretched hands toward the west (what became when the occupants left).

    In general, the enemies of the USSR on the territory of the USSR love to pretend to be victims "we are all so innocently repressed, deported for no reason, starved, occupied". They have a bunch of plebeian show-offs, but there is completely no self-esteem.

    The simplest example is that in Tallinn, visitors at the entrance are greeted by two impressive metal structures that represent “steam locomotives”.
    Every day I drive around this museum, but I myself have not been there, and have never seen any people. There is simply a museum for a museum, they say, here we also have such a museum. But it is interesting in Kyev there are fools who visit the "Holodomor Museum" and the Bandera Museum.

    I read the article ... Comments ... And the question arises: how much will we look at least at the Warsaw Pact countries at least at the countries of the former USSR and ask what they do there with monuments, which museums they build there, which cemeteries are turned over? Maybe it’s enough for someone else’s monastery with its charter?

      Only who will allow them to be created if all the former republics of the USSR are owned by enemies of the USSR and the Soviet people, in which slander of everything Soviet is the only excuse for seizing the republics of the USSR by them for 30 years.

      But for now, they are creating centers for Yeltsin and erecting monuments to Italians, Czech legionnaires and German invaders. It is especially painful for me to look at the city of Dukhovschina of the long-suffering Smolensk region.

      Here is the cemetery of the Nazis in the Spiritual.

    Everything is natural. The separatist elites must by all means ensure that the population does not try to return to a single country. And for this, myths are created that the population of the former republics was occupied by evil Russians, who mercilessly tyrannized them. And from here all the arguments that in a single country the population of these republics lived better are exposed as collaboration. Like, now it's an ass, but then we are free from the evil Russians, and those who say otherwise are agents of the FSB, the Kremlin and Putin personally. request

    "You see, Yura ..." in 1985, the "top" sold us. And there are no other "tops". All these museums are trolling in kindergarten compared to what they did to the mass consciousness of people, especially those born in "Russia of democratic choice", especially in "Ukraine". If the state survives, something must be done ...

    It is sad that there are such "museums" under our noses and not only museums, for example, the ebn center, how do you like it? It is interesting to hear the author's opinion about the Solzhenitsyn Museum - how is it? The CSU has a lot of interesting things on this topic - I don't even want to describe it. You have to start with yourself.

    So, if they believe that they were occupied, then it should be related to the citizens of these countries, as to the natives of the occupied territories, and this should be fixed at the legislative level. Since they believe that they were placed in the 2nd grade, let them be why they disappoint.

    And what surprises the author? Let's look at Russia: a coward, a traitor and a scoundrel Solzhenitsyn is being studied in schools, a struggling drunkard, an overgrown boar is one thing that has not yet been canonized. "EBN.ty center" was built and happily plows, washing the loot of the Consulate General of mattresses. By the way, at the stopping points there are posters "our separation is not for long, we will meet soon" from this hotbed of dirt and treason.
    I live in Yekaterinburg, I see. Moreover, instead of self-isolation we plow with seven days a week.

    Anti-Soviet museums are "typical, because they reflect the" typical "machine for establishing regimes loyal to the USSR in Eastern Europe. All oppositional national-bourgeois regimes and their leaders were destroyed. Suppressed bourgeois Christian dissidence, closed all opposition media
    National religiosity was forcibly reduced to the level of a museum ethnographic exhibit. All that the government of Bolshevik Russia did from the first steps of the Soviet regime.
    These museums reflect the current exaggerated desire of the liberated countries to demonstrate to themselves and the world their originality and "European community". Yes, there is a noticeable unified ideological and methodological support of curators from the USA and London, Paris and Berlin (all these political funds are not in vain eating their bread and butter - Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova show this perfectly) and the exchange of experience between museums. (just like the Soviet history museums were no less tendentious). And yes, in such purely ideological museums "fighters of the ideological front" are everywhere. They receive their salary for propaganda history, not for science history. And even belonging to the liberal culture of the West does not save them from narrow-minded doctrinairism and attempts to curry favor.

    In my opinion, a balanced view of all this to us is very hindered by our own Bolshevik past. We do not know how and really do not like to put ourselves in the place of an opponent. Moreover, we generally very dislike opponents! In Soviet political culture (more precisely, in political lack of culture), an opponent is a synonym for "enemy" (class enemy, ..., Trotskyist, pest, fascist dog, traitor, ... smelly dissident, fifth column, ... "). But, as Dmitry Furman correctly wrote in his essay "Inverted History of History"? From the ideology of perestroika to the ideology of "building capitalism" in Russia "," Free Thought "No. 3 1995
    (I really love this work, because it clearly shows the contradictions of post-Soviet Russia and the reasons for the failure of our dem. reforms):
    Russia is a "special case," and its democratic anti-communist ideology should have some fundamental differences from similar ideologies of other peoples for the simple reason that
    everyone - from Azerbaijanis to Hungarians - can see in the communist period the time of Russian domination, in communism - the system imposed by the Russians, and in the liberation from it - the liberation from the "Moscow tyranny". Russians, however, are the only nations liberated from communism whose anti-communist ideology cannot "write off" communism at someone else's expense and see national liberation in the overthrow of the communist system. What ideological consequences does this lead to? For the democratic anti-communist movements of other peoples, with all their differences, it is characteristic that national sentiment and anti-communism are "one-vector". In Russia, such a single vector cannot be.

    Looking from our pole, we do not want to understand the manifestations of this "one-vector" (and inevitably one-sided) vision of history and modernity. But I am sure that time will pass and they will become more balanced by that time. Future generations (for whom these events will become a distant history) will respectfully accept the sacrifices of our soldiers who liberated them from Nazism. And rightly they will complain about the "Soviet yoke". But even then they will be able to appreciate the good (the very "conquests of socialism" which the Author listed at the end of the article). But the time has not come yet. Look at what background is this all happening? - "New Cold War" is in the yard. It is accompanied by quite hot clashes at the borders (Ukraine) and in the zones of influence (Syria). Mysterious murders and suicides. Expulsion of diplomats and spies, noisy propaganda campaigns ... What do you want against such a background? Yes, and in our country, what is much better with "historical objectivity" today? (some attempts to include in the Constitution the requirements to "protect the historical truth" are worth what).

    It is especially disgusting when people who are over 50-60 years old hayut and vilify everything Soviet. They then went to a free kindergarten and school, studied in free institutes (whose head was in place :) They used free medicine and other benefits of the USSR. And now, having received from Russian capitalism (uk..r, and other former republics of the USSR) a scanty pension, paid medicine and unavailable goods in the windows - WHOOL laughing

    It is necessary, citizens, to recall their past. There is nothing to compare youth with recourse

      "Citizens, it is necessary to remember your past more objectively."


      I think, like ours, many ordinary people in the former countries of "people's democracies" also recall not without nostalgia that there was work, shipyards and factories were not closed. That young people did not need to leave for the West en masse. There was no prostitution, pornography, ethnic gangs and drugs. But they also have before their eyes examples of countries that were lucky to escape from the "tutelage" of the USSR - Finland, Austria. They built social-democratic regimes for themselves and without quartering Soviet divisions. They did not give up private property and religion. Monuments to someone else's "Mongol" Lenin were not erected everywhere. And there was neither Berlin 1948, nor Budapest 1958, nor Prague 1968. And those who survived 1948, 1958 and 1968 will not forget. They will not forget that in the West there were leftists of all stripes, from the Social Democrats to the "believers" of the Stalinists. And in the "barracks of the socialist camp" were bourgeois parties possible?

      Let's try it for ourselves, would you forget? Isn't it our slogan "Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten" - here it is in action, only on different material. Or should their memory be knocked off, how we were raised? But not all of Russia has "gaps" in its memory - we remember both the Victory and the Solovki. And Gagarin and the GULAG. Education, medicine and dispossession of kulaks, expulsions and prohibitions on professions for the declassed. "And the festival of 1957 and the" bulldozer exhibitions ", shameful trials of dissidents ... It is difficult, painful, insulting, but it will have to - this is precisely our Real, not rewritten History ...
