Belarus: the most Soviet of the post-Soviet

123

In the Soviet Union, Belarus was a symbol of Soviet industrial power. In the 80s of the last century, in terms of the growth rate of its gross domestic product, this republic overtook countries such as Bulgaria and Ireland.


It is no coincidence that in the USSR Belarus was called the "assembly shop" of the country. Almost everything was produced here, from refrigerators and televisions to mining trucks. For decades, the BSSR (Belarusian Soviet Socialist Republic) was considered one of the few Soviet republics that produced more than they consumed.

By 1945, Belarus was one of the most affected republics of the Soviet Union. Every third Belarusian died in the war. During World War II, Belarus was completely destroyed. All the industrial power of the republic was created here practically from scratch by the efforts of the whole country.

Belarus became the only republic of the former USSR that linked its national holiday with the events of the Soviet Union stories. Independence Day is celebrated on July 3. It was on this day that Soviet troops liberated the republic from Nazi occupation.

Today, the Republic of Belarus is often called the most Soviet of all post-Soviet republics.

How did the republic survive during the years of World War II? How did you manage to gather all the strength of mind to stop and win? What indelible imprint on the character and the whole subsequent history of the Belarusian people was made by the Second World War? The documentary film “The USSR. Empire is the opposite. Belarus. "

        I join. It is doubly disgusting to observe "urya-patriots" who spread rot against Lukashenka just because only his "cow has not died in his yard." At the same time, all the "attempts" of the Russian authorities cause nothing but disgust.

            But someday the taiga and oil and gas will be "finished" in Russia. Then it will become clear who "lived what". Judging by how the "non-tricks" are in a hurry to shake off all the good as soon as possible, these times are "not far off." request

              I agree with everyone who noted the patriotism of the Belarusian people. Only one example of the “concern” of the Edrosov authorities for a worthy meeting of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory. It is not a secret for you that the symbols of Victory are: portraits of Soviet commanders, the St. George ribbon, the banner of Victory - the state flag of the USSR, Red Square, Lenin's Mausoleum ... Sorry, but during the years of World War II there was such a fact:

              I hope no one needs to explain what color the flag is at the Vlasov parade and what attitude the Red Army soldiers had towards it. And now look how, by May 9, houses were decorated on the Builders Boulevard in Kemerovo:





              Tell me, are these really attributes of Victory? Was this exactly the way tens of thousands of rubles should be used?

                  It happens when there are no victories and achievements, but you really want to, at least stick to strangers. The main thing is to carefully forget about inconvenient facts.

                    What relation do Vlasovites have to the historical flag of the Russian Empire? In my opinion, the same as our modern "communists" to the USSR. However, for some reason they continue to wave the Soviet flag, although they have as much rights to it as the Vlasovites to the symbols of the Russian Empire.

                This is the state flag of the country at the moment. and it’s great stupidity to call him Vlasov’s only for the reason that this traitor decided to take this flag then and made it his own. but what did he have to do with it? he appeared long before his birth even. if every clown doing vile things will take something you cannot forbid him. he dishonored him. but did not make a symbol of something. surround yourself.

            The fact that Belarus has received from us for all the time as assistance and preferences cannot be compared with even a small fraction of the percentage that during the same period from Russia "gentlemen" (officials, oligarchs, religious figures), in particular those with dual or triple citizenship and multiple residence permits pulled out.

      And how to understand the comments of the President of Belarus
      - All these wars are not our wars. The Patriotic War of 1812, Napoleon walked to Moscow and returned back through Belarus. Everything was plundered, everything was destroyed. Then the First World War. We got to the point that only a narrow strip remained from Belarus - a part of the eastern provinces went to Russia, and to Minsk they went to Poland under the Riga Treaty. Then World War II, we have the Great Patriotic War. Completely Belarus erased from the face of the earth. These were not our wars. Nevertheless, grief fell upon us, ”the press service of the President of Belarus quotes Lukashenko.
      And why today the youth of Belarus, for the most part, does not want to hear about the federation within Russia? But they consider it normal to parasitize on the body of Russia. Crimea still has not recognized Belarus as Russian, they scare it with friendship with the West against Russia and so on .... How to understand all of the above?

Moreover, much has gone through Russia to Belarus that is not directly possible. Yes, and the Minsk Agreement .. type on neutral ...

But young people have already been brought up differently, just as you wrote ... Under Lukashenko’s regime, they are being crushed that people in Russia live much worse than Belarusians, that Russia only needs to be milked, but nothing to do with it .... After talking about this, I still really can’t get over it .... By and large, a tingling similar to Ukrainian galloping Bandera is brought up, and not to admit it, it is either blindness or something better ..... . Ukraine we have already missed .......

    The monuments to V.I. Lenin were not tolerated. They will celebrate on November 7, and do not conduct debates.
    They published a textbook (and not just a book) "Victory of the Soviet people in the Second World War".
    One of the historical memorials is "Stalin's Line".
    HONOR, DIGNITY and GLORY!

    Friends! I also think that the AHL is a great president. I support all the slogans and joyful words addressed to him. Just take it from us to you. We can give the entire government to surrender.

    PS: We are doing so-so things at the moment. We are celebrating the parade praised by everyone, but there is no money for doctors to wear protective equipment — volunteers and the whole country are collecting it. On the site of the former airport in the center of Minsk, the Croats are building a quarter with a building density 2 (!!!) times higher than the normative documents allow ... Your oligarchs can only swallow drool enviously, looking at all this beauty. Take this holy man to you.

Yes, check out his cap and courageous expression at the parade (by the way, this is not a sign of intelligence)! You can also order a cap for yourself, they will send it by mail. All lovers of the leader of Belarus come for half a year, a year. You will feel the unforgettable sensations of dictatorship quickly, and if you object to the party's lines even faster in the pre-trial detention center.

            What does the tenderness have to do with it? Ostentatious familiarity on the Internet almost always borders on arrogance. As a person entered, so I answered.

            With AHL, many have achieved something in life, approx. What next? Does external debt not scare you? Does this concert, damn it, on the 9th do not care? The tender for the stage, for 600 mowers, announced on April 30 (!!!) before the big weekend, does not suggest that it was announced for specific personalities? In general, this situation, when doctors feed cafes, mobile operators provide communication, and volunteers and ordinary people collect money for masks, shields, respirators and shoe covers, and the authorities hold a parade - is that normal?

            I have always been well disposed towards parades, but here is inappropriate time and absolutely bestial attitude. First of all, to the doctors.

            So tell me, what if no one would have built a business without AHL? Or did you not get an education? Are you not at all embarrassed by "shake hands with the last businessman" or what kind of "help" have now been promised to ordinary people and businesses that have flown into tar-tarars? Great help - additional checks with the right to close outlets. And tax deferral for 2 quarters, with payment then for all three, at the end of the year. Fabulous help.

            Under AHL, a typical "proletarian" with MTZ or MAZ lives well. The salary is stable, loans to factories are dripping, well, work at a loss - so it does not concern the hard worker. Strictly on the day the salary will drop on the card. Right now, the result of this stability will become visible, when the economy all over the world has gone to hell and no one wants to lend in particular.

            PS: It becomes a pose - maybe not ours. But you won’t be in a position and defend your innocence, they will very quickly set it up. In another, much less pleasant pose.

            I have a feeling that the AHL will not come to power, and in the opinion of many, more than 9 million people will sigh sadly: "Well, that's it, the country is over ..." and scatter around the world with knapsacks on their backs. I don't like a lot of things with AHL. And first of all, the old, decrepit and very stale government. As you communicate with an official in the region of 40-45 years, there are no problems, everything can be solved, they understand, they work, something can be done. As you run into someone who has been sitting in his chair for 40-50 years, that's it, extinguish the candles. It is not allowed, it is impossible, we will consider it, we will decide, we do not do this. And no matter what it touches. It is terrible to lose your place, contradicting the party line, and that's it.

            I need a person in power who at least will not generate external debt because of his wishes. The Hunger Games in 19, these parades now, in Gomel, the ugly story with the flagpole - these are not the things you cannot live without. You need to live within your means, not "beautifully".

            And, yes, there is still a whole cloud of beneficiaries and "social burden". Well, and a little less well-known in circles like yours, bastards. They regularly receive their faithful piece for years, rather unceremoniously squeezing out successful projects at the state level.

              You have a claim more emotional plan. Here we also slammed the USSR, we wanted to improve, not understanding the essence. As for your claims, I can say the same thing in Russia and even worse, we have cut the social network and cut it to the maximum., And officials, with a few exceptions, carry out the general line with dubai-dubbing.
              We really want to have everything good from the world experience with us, and at the same time we feel free and are masters of life. Once again I will tell you that you will not like the experience of Ukraine even more and neither Belarus, nor Russia will be able to live in Europe. Because we are not them.

                "We really want everything good from the world experience to be with us and at the same time we feel free and are the masters of life."
                Is this something bad? Or is it wrong? Should you want to "somehow" and be glad that your neighbor is even worse?

                "I will tell you once again that you will not like the experience of Ukraine even more"
                And why such persistence in the fact that it is necessary to follow the path of Ukraine? There are no other countries that need to be guided and adopted from them good?

                I strongly dislike your logic. This is just the same logic of the AHL: "Everything is bad with us? Look there, it's even worse there!" It is necessary to move to where it is better, to do it so that it is better and focus on the best. And not to nod at a neighbor and be glad that his is worse.

                  This is normal when a person strives for the best. The question is in the realities, and they are such that not one of the leading countries of the world will invest in the development of another country. So your Wishlist will remain yours and no one else. As for the experience of other countries, give an example of a successful post-Soviet republic?
                  The logic of Lukashenko is the logic of a pragmatist, but everything else is populism, which, as you know, leads to sad things.
                  Once again I want to ask you, who do you see as the president of Belarus? Democrat? Liberal? Any of these leaders with 100% probability will lead Belarus to the Ukrainian version.

                    "The question is in reality, and they are such that none of the leading countries in the world will invest in the development of another country."
                    Right before my eyes there are exactly two completely opposite examples. One neighbor from the east who has been pumping money into our country for two decades. And the second country from the east, which not so long ago in an effort to consolidate its status and influence in the world, is pouring money into Africa and all sorts of Bantustans and Belarus.

                    "Lukashenko's logic is the logic of a pragmatist, but everything else is populism, which, as you know, leads to sad things."
                    You did not serve as a political officer? So, on the blue eye, shuffle the facts and give out the same thing in the way that suits you - this is directly a characteristic handwriting. So, if I don’t like the state’s spending on extra events, it’s emotions and populism. And if you like them - is it pragmatism? Very cute.

                    “Once again, I want to ask you, who do you see in the role of the President of Belarus? Democrat? Liberal? Any of such leaders with 100% probability will lead Belarus to the Ukrainian option.”
                    The answer is absolutely specific. Liberal, Democrat, Republican, dictator, tyrant - no difference. But a person at the helm of my country definitely should not hold an expensive parade while volunteers, business and ordinary people raise money for doctors for personal protective equipment. Not because they are few or bad, but because they simply DO NOT.

                    And take it easy with your own path of Ukraine. This is already like a fetish for you. The Baltic states, post-Soviet, for a second, without Maidans and blood, quietly left for Europe, where they climbed all my life without Vaseline and exists quite well. This fact does not bother you from the word in any way. But not a single post of yours has so far been without a horror story about "the path of Ukraine".

                    Once again, I’ll repeat to you for the last time: you don’t need to take the worst. You need to take the best. And these are not my personal wishes. These are the wishes of any person. You all reduce to the fact that "And the neighbor generally beats his wife and children!" For this I consider further dispute inappropriate. All the best to you and do not get sick.

                      I do not argue with you, but try to explain my approach to the problem. I consider your claims to Lukashenko insignificant, for example, let’s say our Putin needs to be changed because the Russian economy is simply destroyed, there is almost no production, there are no conditions for the development of medium and small business, the social network is practically destroyed, etc.
                      Belarus has only one way to Europe to become an enemy of Russia, in this capacity the West will be more favorable to it, but this will not bring Belarus much benefit, it will become an outpost of NATO on the border with Russia. And this in turn will lead to the fact that Russia will consider the territory of Belarus as a potential adversary, with all that it implies. By the way, those countries about which you said just perform similar roles.
                      As for the best, just wondering what are you going west with? You have no raw materials, the products of your industry are not needed in the West. What are you going to "live happily" there for?
                      However, you can not answer.
                      Your life in any way is in your hands and the hands of your compatriots. I can only wish you good luck and health!

I am more stressed by the "world" and the building on Oktyabrskaya. Have you seen the numbers that were released today? Density and parking spaces? Personally, my hair stands on end. And so you drive past from the side of the kuras and you wonder what the former field is turning into, and with these figures you generally lose faith in our power.

    I am proud of course, but I'm not talking about that.
    Belarusians never betrayed anyone.
    And I, being Belarus, will not betray, I can get angry, indignant, but let him touch.
    Congratulations on Victory Day!

    They also forgot to mention. Minsk is the only hero city in the USSR that did not have a heroic defense!
    It was surrendered on the 5th day of the war, and on July 3 the Wehrmacht was at Smolensk, where it was detained for a month.
    In addition, the Belarusian military district was the most unprepared for war.
    But howling about the Belarusians most affected by the war is the loudest.

      Minsk received the star of the hero not for defense, but for resistance and the underground struggle against the invaders.
      And those who suffered more are inappropriate here.
      I have two grandmothers survived the occupation, but you probably know better there in your Chelyabinsk or where you are from.

      -yes Minsk was surrendered, but the Western District, it’s not Belarusians, but the Red Army troops. But already from August / September 41, the ground was burning under the feet of acupants.
      Yes, don’t throw the beads in front of you. Are we not talking about Urengoy?

            Yes, moreover ... The Constitution has a concept of emergency and emergency situations, but nothing about self-isolation. So fines for self-isolation - arbitrariness. If the Constitution is the basic law, then self-isolation can be wiped. And if not, then you can wipe the basic law.
            So how do we live? By law or by definition?
            And the same with amendments to the Constitution. There is no general law for a popular vote for amendments in bulk. There, in this regard, completely different procedures. This means that the amendments introduced will be illegal and illegitimate.

          at the expense of oaths, which he just didn’t give (probably he’s lost his account for a long time). Amendments to the Belarusian constitution were added three times in 25 years (1994, 1996, 2004), some other (silent, they don’t say what) amendments are planned to be added this year.

    In the Soviet Union, Belarus was a symbol of Soviet industrial power. In the 80s of the last century, in terms of the growth rate of its gross domestic product, this republic overtook countries such as Bulgaria and Ireland.

    Belarusians are our brothers. Indeed, the only country that does not spit on the glorious Soviet past.

    For this, the “revolution” was made - the dismemberment of Russia into Soviet “rebellions”.

    Russian separatism - 1912:

    There is no Belarusian language, but it is necessary to Belarusianize - 1925:

    The Belarusian language, as in 1918, has so far been sculpted on its knee - for some reason, the Oryol dialect does not interfere with the Russian language, and for the Mogilev dialect, it is absolutely necessary to invent a newspeak.
    Ukrainization, Belarusization and labor legislation:

    This video highlights one fact. Shushkevich proclaims a union of three republics - Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. So why did it not take place? The fact is that all this happened with an eye to the West. Of course, Western influence acts on Belarus. But they were able to save the people from "therapy." It was humiliation for us, there is nowhere else. For this, Yegor was invited by the Peace Corps. And apparently he left his recommendations. Ordinary people have nothing to share with the people of Belarus.

    The Belarusian people are honored and respected, but panegyrics do not need to be written. The entire Soviet Union was engaged in post-war reconstruction, from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok. And refrigerators with TVs and cars were produced all over the country, and not just in Belarus. But the fact that only the two union republics of the BSSR and the RSFSR produced more goods than they themselves consumed is beyond any doubt.

    Those who in the comments make Lukashenko an ideal person obviously did not live and do not live in Belarus.
    Lukashenko, like any person, has advantages and disadvantages. From what has recently been very annoying to people is his unwillingness to recognize the problem with coronovirus.
    The state holds a parade and a festive concert with a total cost of 1-2 million dollars, and valeters buy health masks and hygiene products for doctors.
    The problem is that Lukashenko in Belarus can do any stupid thing and officials do not dare to object to him.
    Those who wrote about the absence of aligarchs - here the situation is not simple. In this form, as in Russia, we have no aligarchs. But there are many large businessmen closely associated with the Lukashenko family. Prigogine local spill. And in general, we have a state structure that conducts business in the interests of the Lukashenko family. It is called the “Presidential Administration” which owns many office centers, hotels, restaurants and other businesses. The report on the activities of this enterprise is hidden from the public.
    Business is a bad thing, many in the Russian Federation have moved their companies and are happy.
    But there are good points. In general, we have more economy in the country. I can’t imagine what would be shown on the Internet a dead hospital, for example with dilapidated buildings like you have in Sverdlovsk. The very next day, Lukashenko personally held Huber and the chief doctor by the throat, and the KGB would check their family and bank accounts.
    In general, Lukashenko is neither bad nor good. It's just that he is a little outdated and people are a little tired of him.

It is called a pandemic due to the fact that there is not a single country in the world where there are no people with this infection.
