“This is not a show, but a memorable event”: how they try to explain the salutes of Victory without people

“This is not a show, but a memorable event”: how they try to explain the salutes of Victory without people

In connection with the decision to postpone the parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory and at the same time the decision to hold a festive salute, a considerable number of citizens had questions. The main one is this:

If an order has been received to hold a firework on May 9 in all large and relatively large cities of Russia, but the self-isolation regime is extended until at least May 11 inclusive, then who can, as they say, enjoy the fireworks firsthand?

The question really cannot be called idle. After all, salutes from the time of the first victories (the liberation of cities) during the Great Patriotic War were carried out precisely for the purpose that they could be seen by citizens of the country. To see, to be inspired, to feel the joy of victory - especially the Great Victory in the war. That is, they were either conducted or not conducted. But here are the victory salutes without people - without spectators ...

Federal officials are not yet eager to comment on the decisions made on "salutes without spectators"; instead, regional officials are trying to do this. One of the attempts to clarify the situation was demonstrated in the Voronezh region. The governor of the region, Alexander Gusev, stated literally the following (quote from the official portal of regional authorities):

The topic is very important in terms of anti-epidemiological measures. We understand that hundreds of thousands of people have always gathered to watch fireworks. Which, of course, is not permissible now. And we must make a decision with you: there will be a salute, but it should not be a sight, a show, it is still a memorable event. There is a good suggestion - change the site.

The material indicates that the meeting participants under the governor also discussed the postponement of the start of the salute.

At the moment: an unknown platform, unknown time, lack of people - so that they don’t “think that this is all a show for the sake of it.”

Frankly, it is unlikely that any of the adequate citizens at the time of the salute on Victory Day thought that he was present not at the great national holiday, but at a show arranged by someone.

But if this helps in the fight against coronavirus, then perhaps the right decision. But only this will not remove all questions from the population.

Apparently, in the best case, it will be offered to look at the salutes on TV - "in the distance."

      “This is not a show, but a memorable event”

      And for what purpose, then, are the "preoccupies" draping the Mausoleum? Is the memory "inconvenient"?
      Calls to carry out the procession of the "Immortal Regiment" on the balconies are at all the height of the mindlessness of the "self-withdrawn".

    I always watch salutes from the window or from the roof of the barn. We have a small city and go to the square, and then 2 hours returning in five is somehow not very good.

                    the principle is one, only the caliber of the shot can be less, and we collected too, these are fragments of plastic.

      Not only to veterans.
      The essence of the holiday is the transfer of memory to the next generation, but with us this is not very. Not very precisely at the level of the State Power. Superficially, for reporting.
      I repeat my comment:
      "Here the eighth graders asked what anniversary we will celebrate? Silence. I decided in a simpler way: When is Victory Day? They wondered on the coffee grounds. One suggested that it was May 8. I gave him that he was a little wrong, we will celebrate on May 9. In response, I heard: OK."

    Yesterday was Radonitsa. They commemorated their relatives and friends of the deceased at the call of God and contrary to (self-propelled guns) and put candles in their memory and for peace, each personally experiencing his loss. Everyone, in his own understanding and in his capabilities, has given a debt of memory. At the same time, no one accused the state of lack of attention. Your loss, your tears. They say that when a person laughs, the whole world laughs with him, but when he cries, he cries alone. This is clear. Now, in the light of the situation with coronavirus, many families can also light a candle and remember their grandfathers who died at the front for the sake of the life of their descendants in the family circle - nothing prevents this. But .... no, there is some part of society that is ready to cheat on any event and event without disdaining to trample on the memory of their dead ancestors, but most likely those whose ancestors served the Nazis who would not miss the opportunity to throw a shit on a fan, like trying to steal our shit again . Be afraid - yours in this event is only that amount of shit that your body gives out in the morning. The state is not eliminating from honoring those who died with fireworks! This is not a show. This is a tribute to the memory of the STATE for those who defended this state, for which extras are not needed.

    For starters, do not confuse salute and fireworks.
    Salute is made from artillery pieces and is actually a ritual giving of military honor.
    The fact that it is usually combined with a firework (pyrotechnic show) for the most spectacular entertainment does not change the meaning of the salute. The ritual of the audience, in general, does not need it.

    Caution | In memory of Marshal of Victory!
    Glorious George, your name!
    Holy spears of your spearhead.
    Spreading a choking stench
    A reptile wriggles near the hooves.

    In hailstones, the victorious trumpets blow
    Only ... other snakes do not sleep,
    A rod from everywhere, creeping in anger.
    Again the danger - the bastards are tenacious.

      What is there to explain? From the obvious, I understand that We changed the monument to a monument, only the new version is more consistent with historical reality in terms of the presence of the marshal's awards at the time of the parade and the horse under the marshal more convincingly reflects the natural movement, emphasizing the plasticity laid down by nature, than it looked on the previous horse moving on straight lines legs like stilts. From unobvious, that is, there are some graters in terms of coordinating work on dismantling and installing a new version. As always, the interdepartmental bureaucrats have rummaged this case because of "excessive workload", and now they have developed a vigorous activity in view of the fact that something flew past them. The old version is not destroyed, but moved to storage.

        Did they restore it like that? Something the horse’s head does not fit the body, and it was welded on the snot.

        But the most important evidence that the dismantling and replacement of the monument is by no means a planned restoration work is the following paragraph of the same letter:

        “At the same time, we are informing you that a criminal case has been opened and is being investigated in the proceedings of the Office of the Organization of Inquiry on the fact of the dismantling of the monument to G.K.Zhukov in the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation in Moscow” - the letter was endorsed by Georgy Sytenko, deputy director of the Department of State Protection of Cultural Heritage.

        The next question: where is the "new" Zhukov? According to the source of “MK” - everything is in the same place, on the territory of a foundry in Khimki. The sawn monument was transferred to a remote part of the production, having previously removed the name of the author from it.

In our Sberbank ATMs, the payment columns for mobile phone and Internet disappeared, some columns appeared under the name self-collection and charity. Today I went to pay, went around half the district to pay. Prime Minister Mishustin was struck by the covirus, self-isolated, and he probably transferred his sore to the Sberbank purchased by the government, nothing more comes to mind. I’m sitting angry like a dog and drinking a beer. Probably the virus is to blame for the situation with the monument.

    All my life I thought that salutes were given in honor of the warriors who died in the Second World War, that this was a tribute to them, and not to the onlookers who opened their mouths to Schaub. belay And I am sure that if salutes cancel questions there will be no less such is our people lol
