“Why is it so important for Russians that a monument to Marshal Konev be in Prague” - they understand the Czech press

113

The Czech publication Respekt published an interview with Onjay Kundra with the representative of the Moscow office of the Carnegie Center Andrei Kolesnikov. The interview was dedicated to Russia. One of the questions that was raised in the conversation with the interviewee was: “Why is it so important for the Russians to have a monument to Marshal Konev in Prague?”


Speaking on this subject, Mr. Kolesnikov states that today the President of Russia uses questions stories and constantly refers to them, "so as to lead the country."

From an article in a Czech newspaper:

The main event he is working on is a victory in World War II, which is a unifying event for all citizens of Russia. Putin usurped this for himself, imagining himself a supporter of the memory of great historical victories and at the same time their successor.

According to the representative of the Carnegie Center, the Russian authorities constantly say that someone is threatening the country. From the interview:

They say that we must defend our borders in a historical, ideological, cultural, diplomatic and military sense.

Kolesnikov claims that it’s not so much for all Russians as “for Putin, the presence of Soviet monuments in Eastern Europe, including the monument to Marshal Konev in Prague, still symbolizes Russian territory on European territory.” And if, as the interviewee states, someone dismantles the monuments to Soviet military leaders, this challenges his (Putin's) image and weakens the “contrived ideology”.

The material asks why "Putin hasn’t shown himself in this way before." The question of why the monuments to soldiers-liberators had not been demolished in Eastern Europe, the Czech journalist did not raise.

Kolesnikov for Respekt:

I think that deep down he was always the same Putin that we know today. Aggressive, very nationalistic and imperialistic, obsessed with history. His approach is the same, only at first he was not so noticeable, because he does not have to show it. This became more apparent only when economic problems arose in Russia.

It is important to add that Mr. Kolesnikov was previously the chief editor of Novaya Gazeta. In 1999, he received a prize from the Gaidar Institute "for upholding economic freedom in Russia." Today A. Kolesnikov is a member of the board of the Yegor Gaidar Foundation.

    “Why is it so important for the Russians that in Prague there is a monument to Marshal Konev” -

    That history would not be forgotten and not lied .. that would not have made mistakes, fatal, that would have been remembered when feces were thrown into Russia that the Soviet soldiers did not spare their lives, for the sake of saving everyone from the fascist plague.

      Stop touching grandpa Putin. He is already aged, survived the 90s. There are no questions to him. 68 years old this year. And then there's the coronavirus.

        I think that this Mr. A. Kolesnikov says it all, because the market "Gaidar-Chubais" economic reforms - in "Saints" for Naina Yeltsina in the 1990s - 90% of the population of the Russian Federation could barely survive on their own skin.

          everything has been said clearly about Mr. A. Kolesnikov.
          As they say, but who judges?
          For the market "Gaidar-Chubais" economic reforms - by the way, in the "Saints" of the 1990s, according to Naina Yeltsina, 90% of the Russian population could survive with great difficulty on their own skin.
          Statements by A. Kolesnikov about Russia are generally worth little.

      The question can be reformatted more simply - Why do Russians not like it when they try to shit on their heads? Any Czech himself will be able to answer such a question, and there will be no need to call the "unworthy" Mr. Kolesnikov and listen to his idiotic fabrications.

    "for Putin, the presence of Soviet monuments in Eastern Europe, including a monument to Marshal Konev in Prague, still symbolizes Russian territory on European territory," that someone canceled the decision to divide into zones of occupation following the war. Our eastern zone remained with Russia, so that our tanks can go to Berlin on all bases, returning to the places of deployment left in the 90s.

          Well, why immediately forgiven. Russia has repaid its debt to the Czech Republic, on the basis of an agreement since 1994, in the amount of 3,6 billion US dollars. Debt arose during the USSR. If questions arise, then this is to the Russian Foreign Ministry and to the Russian Ministry of Finance.

    One of my favorite contemporary Russian thinkers, Alexander Zinoviev, once aptly noticed. "They were aiming for communism and ended up in Russia." For me, to hell with him, with communism, let the scientists deal with this. One thing I know - personally for me and my family under Soviet rule, life was not so much better in material terms, but calmer - I was calm about my family and my work. Also, even at the end of the Soviet era, I felt respect for my country. Example: I received a Swedish or Austrian visa on the same day after submitting a carelessly completed application to the consulate and free of charge. And try now to get a visa, even a non-Nenna one, even an American one - they will ask you about your salary, and where you work, and you will stand in line, and they will look at you crookedly, and then you will pay a LOT. And I am silent about the correct filling of the application. A whole group of "experts in filling out an application" has grown up, and you will pay them too. That is why I am against the demolition of the monument - and it is not about Putin. Metiyat in Putin. but end up in Russia.

      Still would.
      So many people from the Union traveled there that the consular ones from boredom did not know what to do, if the design work fell into their hands, they rushed at it as a demobilization of the Soviet Army on their girlfriend upon arrival home ..... smile
      By the way, were there consulates then? or just an embassy?

      Again, somehow you forgot about exit visas from the USSR, and the youth now don’t even know about them.

      The fact that embassies are checking now has been checked by the district committee before, and the embassies knew this very well.
      I remember how my father studied in the evenings of the newspaper for two weeks where there were any strikes in the world - he was preparing for a commission in the district committee before a trip to the GDR and Czechoslovakia smile .
      And what's the point of checking then the salary was to the embassy, ​​if Soviet rubles for currency could be legally exchanged except perhaps a pittance?

        Do not drive the wave in vain - we had more than half a million troops in the GSVG, and without any problems with visas we went there, getting a passport already issued. It was the same in other groups of troops, not to mention Cuba, Mongolia, Vietnam, where our military was also. Well, a huge number of our foreigners according to the sailor's passport dangled around the world, although in order to get it, you had to go through the verification procedure, where not so much the party committee played the role, but the check in the KGB. If you saw some of our sailors who even managed to fly to foreign ports even in Soviet times, then you would understand why you had to carefully check them before issuing a sailor's passport.

        I don’t know what pennies you’re talking about, but in addition to the thirty rubles allowed for export abroad, I also changed 500 rubles at the official rate when I went on a business trip to the GDR for ten days. It was decent money in terms of stamps, not counting travel money - it was 1986.

          And then they arranged checks, panimash, in several stages!
          Would you see some of our sailors who, even in Soviet times, managed to fly into foreign ports

          I saw our Soviet sailors, who had an important problem, to behave in such a way that they allowed them on their next voyage, otherwise they could return and not leave again.
          Well, in general, I’ll tell you, congratulations, I’m lucky for you, business trips, change the currency as much as you want. But a simple Soviet tourist was far away from you.

              Not unusual? Besides my father, I didn’t know anyone at all then who would travel abroad as a tourist.
              And only much later did he recognize people who traveled abroad during the time of the Union.
              In the original post, it was about a trip in 1990, then it really became easier, but it was about Austria and Sweden, and I still don’t know who would go there in Soviet times.
              Well, the sailors, perhaps, could go further than Hungary-the GDR.

                We built dofiga abroad, so many of our people worked in different countries, and this was not uncommon. Some lived there quite well - like in a resort. I’m not even talking about our athletes or cultural figures - they have also been abroad more than once. As for holidays abroad, we did not have so much currency so that any worker could rent a hotel room in a western resort - that’s where they went cheaper, i.e. in the socialist countries. Which of our workers from the construction site can now rent a room in Courchevel - I think that he should be put off for such a trip for many years.

                  The theme, in my opinion, is so obvious that there is nothing to argue about.
                  Each Soviet person could not only drive to Paris or Las Vegas, but also marry a foreign movie star and even buy a Mercedes for himself. The usual thing.
                  And the Trocadero site in general was just clogged with ours, they won’t be fulfilled.

                    In vain you are ironic - in the GDR one could meet a former compatriot of ours who married a German, I myself was in the same compartment with one when she returned from the Union. And the officers of the NPA often came across Russian wives - they married them while studying in the USSR. As for "Mercedes", not everyone drives them in Germany either, and if they do buy, then many in the secondary market. They just really estimate the cost of transport, that's why they don't show off with the brand of the car.

                      Does this somehow mean that in the USSR there were no difficulties with leaving?
                      You are aware that in order for Vysotsky to get the right to travel to his wife, this very wife had to first join the local Communist Party and then turn to Brezhnev personally at a meeting, and only then he was allowed to go to his wife.
                      But Leonid Ilyich was alone, and there were many Soviet people.
                      And not everyone had a wife, a first-level star, a member of the French Communist Party, to personally ask Leonid Ilyich about this.

                        And this is generally a separate issue.
                        Article 64 of the Criminal Code of the RSFSR
                        ...... flight abroad or refusal to return from abroad to the USSR, assistance to a foreign state in conducting hostile activities against the USSR, as well as a conspiracy to seize power, is punishable by deprivation of liberty for a term of ten to fifteen years from confiscation of property and with reference to a period of two to five years or without reference or the death penalty with confiscation of property.

                        But in general, I wrote about the complexity of the exit.
                        My father didn’t let one out in the group; his grandfather didn’t fight for civilians for those.

          I don’t know how others do, but I personally had no problems traveling abroad. But concretely, this was the case:
          1976, I am 18,5 years old, the first trip to the GDR or rather to the GSVG, as much as two whole years.
          1981 tour to Czechoslovakia for 11 days, just signed up at the factory in the trade union committee. True, they summoned us to the party committee and asked all sorts of crap about which they told us every evening on TV in the program "Time".
          1982 the second trip to the GDR, more precisely to the GSVG as a free-rider for three years. Also no problem. I went to polyclinics longer, filled out a list of thirty medical specialists.
          1987 year trip to the GDR for 12 days, no obstacles.
          Only in the department at the factory where the foreign tours were distributed, they asked:
          “Have you been abroad?”
          - It was five years old.
          - Good. Ride it.
          In 1990, Bulgaria and again no checks.
          This could happen to everyone in our factory during the Soviet era.

    Sergei! Not true, I traveled to these countries in 1990-1991. , used to be restricted to travel abroad. Specifically in line at the consulate. As I remember now, the queue at the door of the Swedish consulate was about twenty: by four o'clock everyone had received it. At this time, no visas from the district committee were required. As for the currency, I did not go as a tourist, but on business trips to call the receiving side, which paid me business trips. In Vienna, in particular, I was accommodated in a five-star Hilton, although I was an ordinary specialist who was invited to a meeting on a specific scientific problem. That was the attitude towards Soviet people. As for trips to the socialist countries, then there was no visa required at all. My superiors went there. The interview on their reviews was rather formal.

    Do we think that Russia is constantly being threatened? Firstly, not "someone", but the West. And secondly, after Napoleon and Hitler, we have the right to think so. And the demolition of monuments to Soviet soldiers in Europe is another confirmation of this. The West is itching to do so and wants a new war. Perhaps without realizing it.

      The Russian Federation did not defeat either Hitler or Napoleon. While for thirty to forty years "our elite" was destroying the (former) state (USSR), including the armed forces, the healthcare and education system, other (foreign) elites organized the export of very cheap (previously very expensive) raw materials from the Russian Federation and remaining brains, seized the territory, water area, air routes of the FSU. Now is the time to resolve the remaining "issues".

    And where does "it is important to have a monument"?
    If the monument had been removed by prior agreement with Russia, and not demonstratively, then there would be no special noise. The question is not even that the monument was removed, but in what way it was implemented. Well, Russia would buy the monument for a certain amount and take it out of Prague or refuse, it would have been a decision of Russia. And so - it was a demonstrative diplomatic "slap in the face".

In the given case from the monument of Konev, it could be moved to another place and this is the internal affair of the Czech Republic. It happens that this kind of displacement happens in connection with beautification activities. But so to take and demolish, it’s like the Taliban and Ishilov’s blew up historical objects!

For us, let at least in any position the Kama Sutras stand in front of the owner. But the Russians don't give a damn about their souls - be prepared to receive for this. The gentlemen of Czech formalist lawyers should not forget that the monument to Konev was erected by the Czechs, although they were communists, but nevertheless the Czechs, at their own will and at their own expense. If the Czechs do not respect their history, then there is nothing to spit in Russian history and in the memory of the fallen Soviet soldiers. and the monument must be taken away / redeemed. Otherwise - dishonor to us.

    only one thing is obvious that Russia was very late with an angry reaction, because the demolition of the monument
    Konev has another crime with the demolition of monuments to Soviet military commanders-liberators
    Europe from fascism. And all these barbarities began back in the nineties with the demolition of the monument to Army General Chernyakhovsky in Vilnius and the transfer of the monument to Voronezh. And then, after the demolition, the monument was transferred to Voronezh only on the initiative and through the great labors of the relatives of Chernyakhovsky, otherwise this monument would have been rotted to the liberator general in the courtyard of some warehouse or would have been exhibited as an exhibit at some museum of the so-called occupation, as an exhibit of the occupier. But after that, after almost thirty years, trains with tanks with transit Russian oil and with cars of transit Russian coal from Russia both went and are still going to the port of Klaipeda, although the new ports built in Ust-Luga and Pionersk are in excess of forces to handle these transit cargoes and Russia to send its transit goods through its ports. And the distance from the entrance to the territory of Lithuania to the port of Klaipeda is actually the same as the distance from the entrance to the territory of Lithuania to the Kaliningrad and Pioneer seaports. And for the money earned for Russian transit through the port of Klaipeda, Lithuania maintains NATO bases and an airfield on its territory and feeds American soldiers.
    And after the mockery of the monuments Chernyakhovsky and Hero of the Soviet Union Melninkaite, everything went and went. Monument Bronze Soldier in Tallinn, Monuments to the Hero of the Soviet Union Nikonov in Tallinn, Monuments to the Soviet military commanders-liberators in Poland and Ukraine. And the reaction from Russia is only the Foreign Ministry's slurred wiping of its own snot with the statement that Russia is deeply sorry. It is high time to understand that through demolition of monuments comes an ode from strategic attacks of the hybrid war, which implies the destruction of Russia without firing shots through distortions of history and through depriving the memory of the great mission of the Soviet soldier of the liberator. Of course, the liberator soldier is also a symbol of the spirit of the Russian World and of Russian civilization itself. And this, too, according to the plan of the Anglo-Saxons and their lackeys, should be destroyed in the same way. The Vedas of the USSR were destroyed without a single victim of Anglo-Saxon soldiers or civilians. On the flip side, Soviet citizens and Soviet soldiers died in the republics during the destruction of the USSR. but the Anglo-Saxons do not give a damn about it. The goal has been achieved.

    The problem is not that someone would like a monument to stand somewhere.
    The problem is that once the monument, and even the liberator, was not dismantled under far-fetched pretexts, and even on the eve of this liberation. As if someone did not relate to the facts of history. Attitudes toward facts change, but history does not.

    And what do these "Carnegists" want from us? Practicing fascists are in power in the Czech Republic, because there is no other name for the people who remove the monument to the man who liberated them from fascism in 1945. All these American centers still receive money and contain a considerable staff of either informers or agents of influence, and all those "working" in them, as a rule, are Russian citizens. So what do you need? To destroy the country so that, like in the 1990s, people began to fear for themselves and their families, their children and loved ones? For a civil war to break out, for the occupying armed formations to enter here in the form of "Ukrainian troops" with American commanders? Is this what all these boorish mordovorotov with well-hanging tongues want? We have been seeing some of them on TV screens for 40 years, and now also on the Internet, others have just been born, but as if through IVF, i.e. from the same mordovorotov. What other "light" do they want to kindle, what "truth" to convey to us? Even if we assume that at the expense of Russia, in the end, all this evil in the United States and its hangers-on around the world will last another 50 years, then what will they do when this period ends? They all have a limited time, they are eternally yesterday. They were born and immediately lived their lives aimlessly like dandelions. What have they created? Who will remember them in the future?
    That is why it is painfully a pity that the monument to the Soviet Marshal was demolished in the Czech Republic. Because this is only the beginning, it is a signal to all the scum inside the country that their time has "come". And if you do not stop it at the very beginning, the consequences will be unpredictable. And we still have the ambassador of this Czech Republic traveling around Moscow, and all kinds of trash pour slop on the heads of people, citizens of our country. Once again you are convinced that "freedom is a conscious necessity."

    Here again they scold Putin on what the light stands. Although nothing really depends on Putin in this matter. Personally, I am increasingly bothered that the Military Review is becoming a platform for stupid trolls with funny old Slavic and meaningless pseudonyms, confident that the rest of the world is to blame, that everything is so bad everywhere that everyone around wants the conditional West , attacked the conditional East and what is the soil being prepared for everyone and everything? Neither in Germany nor in France, I have never read such comments. Hateful, arrogant, and most importantly pointless. I want to give food for thought to all these nationalists, homespuns and others, when it was Soviet Russia, which gave the world Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Korolev, etc. This was all inflated and presented. The main thing was what to present. Today we have Baskov, Kirkorov, Rogozin ... Whose present is not something that is bad, they are not needed by anyone.
    I’m not a liberal, I still believed and still think so, the Russian, Russian people have not grown up to liberalism, democracy or any other form of government that provides for self-government based on collective and individual responsibility, a sense of patriotism and tolerance towards their fellow citizens who think not like everyone else.

Let's hope that Voennoye Obozreniye does not cease to be a Voennoye Obozreniye, which corresponds to the spirit and letter of Article 29 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation on freedom of thought and speech, and does not turn into a journal enforcing the policy of the "party and government", encouraging "all agree" and repressing those which do not float on the general friction, lowered from above.

          Yes of course! In my hometown, your ancestors are still remembered - you robbed him well in 1919. They grabbed so many things that they couldn’t take them away — they had to throw junk on the road, so that they could get off fast with the reds — out of a dozen city printing houses and then there weren’t enough cars and one, so I had to equip the expedition in your wake so that at least something abandoned pick up. So yours at the same time also spoiled the abandoned - neither ours, nor yours! and the Entente’s ass was licked quite well, do not be shy. Barbarians!

        It seems that somewhere there is a monument to McNamara ... Felts in Normandy, felts still where. I'm not interested. And how will they react if they remove him, too. I’m strange about the reaction of people who before that didn’t even know where the monument stood, to whom and in general who Konev was, such snot bred here, as if Marshal was their own grandfather. Like the same fanatics who killed bloggers Charlie Yebdo for the cartoons of Muhammad ...

      There is such a paradox, what was a plus turns upside down. The liberator turns into an occupier, and executes, and sends to uranium mines all those who do not agree with the Stalinist line. Because of this, the monuments to Soviet marshals, as apologists for Stalinism, raise doubts and discussions, but no one touches the monuments to the Red Army.
      And, regarding the archives, lay out everything, including those how “you” liquidated the opposition disagreeing with Stalin, although “you” were not there, however, as during the war. How many "you" were in 1945, if not a secret?

    the slogan of the Proletariat of All Countries, Unite has had and still has tragically deceptive consequences for Russia itself as a state and for its citizens. Such a utopian unification is possible only under conditions if the capitalist and the rich do not understand that the unification of the proletarians and revolution occurs only when there are many hungry people in the country. The capitalist and military industrial tycoon quickly realized this after the revolution in Russia and fed his proletariat, gave him pensions and vacations, insurance and a good salary. And already ten years after such a changed relationship with the proletariat, this well-fed proletariat in Germany had already forged forged weapons to Hitler and with pleasure dreamed of how to enslave the proletariat in Russia. The one that the Germans called for unity, while the German proletariat beat the hungry. The Soviet proletariat naively thought that a well-fed German would unite with some kind of hungry Czech for the implementation of the revolution. But the capitalist and the military industrialist fed the Czech proletariat, and that well-fed one also forged the arms of Germany.
    The Russians in the USSR, realizing the utopia of the union and fraternity of the proletariat of different countries, hoped that
    brothers and sisters are the republics of the USSR, because they are united with the proletariat of Russia. The naive Russians did not see that only the Byelorussian SSR was self-sufficient and did not require subsidies from the RFSSR, and the remaining thirteen republics sat like parasites on the neck of the RFSS and sucked
    subsidies. And how much subsidies from the USSR were sucked up by the same Czechoslovakia or Poland, But if in the USSR itself the Russian SSR subsidized all the republics except Belarus, so did Czechoslovakia with Poland too
    then it was subsidized by one RFSSR and Byelorussian SSR, because the remaining thirteen republics of the USSR
    and so did not make their ends meet.
    And the most amazing thing is that the Russians after all these utopias did not learn logic, but that even relatives can turn into bastards and actual enemies. It’s better for centuries a proven good ally than such a relative, especially the relative who for several decades jumped on the neck of Russia from sucking subsidies, and then separated and left himself all the wealth that the Russian SSR gave him and built. I’m here not so much about the Czech Republic as about such a relative as Ukraine.
    And if there are no reliable relatives, then Russia does not need to worry about this. Russia has reliable
    allies. This is her Army and Navy, and the other allies are just another utopia about unity, about internationalism and reliable relatives ...

    Importantly, not a monument in the square, but the attitude! Life is changing and it may well be that the monument does not quite fit into the new design of the square, but with the removal of the monument, the heroes who saved Prague were shown to be neglected and continue to be expressed! They also make claims to our indignation over the attitude towards the Russians and our soldiers and commanders!
    The monument could be moved with reverence for their feat and there would be no question! And so, we will remember it ...

      You, as I see, do not know how many monuments and memorials the Red Army is in the Czech Republic
      Monuments, memorials and memorial plaques on graves, on the places of death of the Red Army soldiers and just as a memory remain in their places and every year wreaths are laid on them, or at least bunches of flowers. All Russian tourists coming to Prague are offered to visit the Olshansky cemetery and honor the memory of the Red Army soldiers buried there. If 5 percent of these tourists come there, excellent. The rest are shopping, beer and shank, but at home in Russia they will beat themselves in the chest, as they are offended by Konev.
      The monument to Marshal Konev will be placed in the newly created Museum in the memory of the twentieth century. When will the museum open ...? And Moscow did not immediately build. Now disputes are being held about the place of creation of the museum, to build a new building or take advantage of an existing one. But it will be in Prague.
      And remember, remember. This is what we can do.

        I completely agree with you. My ex-wife lives in Prague, and when I came to see them, I asked to see the monuments to our soldiers and Marshal Konev. It was interesting to me. She is absolutely not for example, although she is Russian. By the way, the same situation happened in Tashkent with the monument to the Uzbek general Sabir Rakhimov. The monument was dismantled to be moved to the new Victory theme park. But Moscow smelled so much that it was already scary. Even notes of protest were sent to the Uzbek Foreign Ministry ... Not everything is in order in the East Slavic kingdom. And, apparently, such "orders" come from the very top.

        If everything was as rosy as you describe, then there would be no noise! hi The monument was not moved to another prepared place, but was immediately removed to the warehouse, ready to be given to anyone who wishes, moreover, at the request of the Russian Foreign Ministry in violation of any agreements! To our indignation, the answer follows that this is the business of the district administration, that's all! + All this scandal fit perfectly into the anti-Russian agenda in Europe and the Czech Republic doesn’t react to this!
        We will remember: that when the Czech Republic is once again pressed, we need to think how much our help will cost the Czech Republic and whether their payment is beneficial to us!
        And I’m even interested in what you remember, or remember?

        Why be rude at the same time, civilized you are ours? We have a saying; “It’s not you who built, and it’s not up to you to break!”, And if you break, then do it at least delicately, and not like a Western European savage. In such cases, your "excuses" about museums are not accepted, and your "memos" for us are an empty phrase. Do not make us nervous - you will regret it, but it will be too late!

    "For Putin, the presence of Soviet monuments in Eastern Europe, including the monument to Marshal Konev in Prague, still symbolizes Russian territory on European territory." laughing In Little Switzerland, they even managed to get an official document in which the community of the Ursern Valley was inferior to the Russian Empire for a land plot on which the monument to .SUVOROV was built. This is now a piece of Russian land in the center of Europe. By the way, how are the hereditary lands of Ekaterina Alekseevna in the mountains. Stezin is the capital of Pomerania (Pomerania). Nowadays the city is called Szczecin, among other territories it is voluntarily transferred by the Soviet Union, according to the results of World War II, Poland and is the capital of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship of Poland? lol

    Indeed, is Putin so worried that the Russians are all talking about his victory in World War II? This is all not true! The truth is that Czechs won the Second World War, even without the help of the Slovaks, they, only by their joint performance with the Red Army, violated the Czechs' struggle for improving the quality of production of military equipment!

    Why really? Victory is the act of dividing good and evil. The monument is a sign of this act. You choose a monument, an understandable reaction from those who paid for this act of separation with a sea of ​​blood. All states have something to present to each other. But it is advisable not to confuse the banks and to measure both your own significance and the significance of the topics touched upon in politics. Otherwise, you can lose your state. Moreover, the Chekhovs have experience of "hope" for the civilized West. 38 oh, 68th ... You need to take care of yourself and remember your history. There, in that story, it was written in blood in time who should not be enraged, who should be trusted.

And to allow your feet to be wiped off is harmful for us and for the boors. The Czech Republic and Russia are incomparable sizes: they are None, they will disappear and no one will even notice, and Russia is a whole WORLD, civilization. Therefore - to extrude them in full, so that others would not be discouraged to speak!

    Monuments to Soviet soldiers in European cities were specially erected so that some would always remember that it was not necessary to go "nah ost", and others would remember who saved their ancestors from the gas chambers ...
    Unfortunately, at the moment, people are having problems with memory again. Well and yet, all that is happening is another objection to fascism.
