"Blockade Diary" - a reward for yet another meanness

96
I took the book, rising from my sleep,
And I read in it:

“There were worse times,
But it was not mean ”.

Nikolay Nekrasov


Yes, not having time to cool down from the film "Zoya", after which I was really shaking, so the next premiere of the next dirty trick collapsed.

Film "Blockade Diary" directed by Andrey Zaitsev. Cuddled by the press like Meduza and Rossiyskaya Gazeta and sharply criticized from the other side, for example, Rada Mikhailovna Granovskaya, Doctor of Psychology, siege woman, Nikolai Puchkov and Bair Irincheev, Andrey Sidorchik and many other not indifferent, and most importantly, honest people.

"Blockade Diary" - a reward for yet another meanness

The film won the Grand Prix of the 42nd International Moscow Film Festival "Golden Saint George". He is naturally praised by those who should praise him. But those who criticize are also entitled to their opinion, especially if they really were participants.

Already the trailer has outraged people. Yes, a trailer is a promotional product that should lure people into the theater.

“My heart ached from grief and resentment when I watched the video of this film about the siege of Leningrad. The way the inhabitants of besieged Leningrad are shown in the video is dirty trick and lies. The video denigrates the heroic people who defended their city, ”Granovskaya said in an interview with Krasnaya Vesna.


“It became clear to me that the authors of the film do not consider the blockade people as people. If we were such freaks, as the filmmakers showed, we would not have defended Leningrad. And how you need to hate people who survived the blockade to make such a film about them! "


Perhaps Rada Mikhailovna was overly emotional? You know, I will also allow myself "extra emotionality." Before the war, more than two hundred relatives lived in Leningrad. ONE survived the blockade. Alexandra Strelnikova, nurse of the 2nd evacuation hospital.

The rest - at Bogoslovsky, Obukhovsky and Piskarevsky.


But it's not about the personal, it was a tragedy on a national scale. And the whole country fought for Leningrad. With great difficulty, the exported children were accepted throughout the Soviet Union, in all republics. This was considered a bit of an honorable duty. And this is what films should be made about - about heroism, about the spiritual feat of people living, and not just living, but working and fighting in such conditions.

But no. Not worthy.

And if they are unworthy, don't get it on the topic of the zombie apocalypse. The scriptwriter cannot enter the script, the director cannot direct, the editor cannot edit, but you, the audience, will watch THIS because you have paid.

Oh yeah ... Doesn't it bother anyone that the director, scriptwriter, editor, producer are one person? Andrey Zaitsev, a multi-local Stakhanovite?

Behind whose back everything is the same as in the case of the film "Zoya" looming RVIO, Medinsky and the Ministry of Culture.

And then I want to proclaim: "Glory to the covid!"

If not for the quarantine measures, we would have been doused with mud once again. Not to the 75th anniversary of the victory (oh, how we would like!), But to the next anniversary of the lifting of the blockade.

It is not enough for us "Holiday" of the villain Krasovsky, we there, to the honor of the public, walked so that no one dared to demonstrate THIS on the screens. We decided that the Internet would be enough. But when the chicks of Medinsky's nest from the RVIO intervene, it immediately becomes clear: there will be a budget, which means that there will be rental on the screens of cinemas too.

Unfortunately.

So what will they show us? What to expect from Andrei Zaitsev, by the way, nothing special at this moment not noted in terms of creating masterpieces?

The zombie apocalypse. The walking Dead. Everything. This is all that the director's mind and imagination were enough for. Usually a trailer is a cut of the “fattest” shots that the viewer might like. Sometimes all the interesting footage from the trailer is the most valuable thing in the film.

But Mr. Zaitsev decided to show us a really film about zombies who have lost everything human.


Black and white "film", some really post-apocalyptic city, with buildings, for some reason from roof to ground covered with some strange drips, frost ... Slowly moving figures ... One, like in the movie "Zoya", filling the audio track with groans pulling a sled. The sleds are overturned right next to the line, and loaves of bread fall out of them onto the snow.

The heads of those standing in line slowly turn and the repeated refrain begins to sound: "Bread ... Bread ... Bread ... Bread ... Bread ...". Deadly and mournful muttering. Wretchedness of the highest level. Again Hollywood with its stamps.

A crowd of gray faceless figures are approaching a rushing and screaming parody of a man trying to explain that he is taking this bread to children in an orphanage ...

Lord, why do we need all this?

Why do we have to be punished for so long, filming all this rubbish, why money is given to these mediocre directors and screenwriters?

Was it necessary to vote for this? This Constitution so protects historical the truth?

No, it was not like that.

Yes, the scribes of history really want to show Zombieland, inhabited by creatures that have lost their human appearance. Demonstration of a set of some instincts. Is not stealing bread from children and not eating it - is it valor and achievement? Is this all that the proud and unconquered Leningraders were capable of?

Not. There are enough documents, memoirs, memoirs, books, after reading which one can draw only one conclusion: Leningrad was not a kingdom of death, inhabited by zombies that have lost their human appearance. It was a difficult front, the front of the war of life and death.

Not zombies worked in factories, repairing and releasing Tanks and self-propelled guns. Not zombies repelled German raids aviation and counteracted artillery shelling. They were people.

And not just people, but people of the highest spirit and stamina. Helping each other. Fought until the last minute. Those who fought, worked, taught and studied. Yes, dying under air raids and shelling, dying of hunger and cold.

But not as stupid zombies, but as people who were in the war not as slaughter animals, but as parts of the very Motherland that they eventually defended.






Zaitsev does not understand this. Either education or upbringing. That's why he has zombies. And those who were properly brought up and educated have completely different people in their memory. Those who gave the last crumb to the children so that they could survive this terrible time.

Yes, there were freaks. Thieves, marauders, bandits. Shadows on the bright image of the population of the great city, which were caught and destroyed like mad dogs.

In the text I will give several links to useful sources, but I highly recommend everyone to read a very interesting work, the book by Alexander Kiknadze "That Long Time". The book is dedicated to THAT football match of the Leningrad Dynamo, but it contains a lot of interesting facts about what the players were doing during the war. Highly recommend.

And if at least part of the Leningraders turned into those monsters that Zaitsev took in his lampoon, the city would definitely fall.

And surprising as it may seem, Zaitsev for some reason begins ... to lie!

In an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta, he states:

“This is a documentary reality. I wrote the script based on Stars of the Day, the evidence from the Book of Siege and the memoirs of Daniil Granin. And I would never allow myself to fantasize something about the blockade. This is a sacred theme, and all that is in the film are the memories of the survivors of the blockade. Granin, Berggolts, and the diaries of the blockade have a detailed description of the city in the winter of 1941 - the fiercest one, when a lot of people died from frost and hunger. Then we learned how to somehow improve life, there was more food, and in later filming the streets do not look so deadly. And the first year is the worst. In December, the electricity was cut off, the cameramen handed over their cameras, and this cruel winter is almost not in the photo or in the newsreels. "

About how Zaitsev read everything, Bair Irincheev said very well, and I see no reason to repeat after him, it is enough to show him at Puchkov's speech. Honest work.

Bair Irincheev about the film "Blockade Diary"

Documentary filming of besieged Leningrad, photographs of the winter of 1941-1942 were carried out. In Soviet times, not all of these photographic materials were available, but now it is quite possible to get acquainted with them.

The fact that Zaitsev does not know that the operators did not need electricity is surprising. Alas, no one handed over their cameras anywhere. They filmed, including that terrible winter, as you can see from the above photos.


Cameramen Boris Dementyev, Boris Sokolov, Mikhail Poselsky and Roman Carmen, May 1945, Germany, Berlin.

Here is my all-time idol Roman Carmen and his "Aymo 71-Q", an American camera from Bell & Howell. Although our KS-4 and KS-5 also existed.


This camera does not need electricity. It was powered by a spring mechanism ...

Such a small lie, but now it generates a great disbelief ...

And then, the main question: what does Zaitsev want to show us? The horror of the blockade?

Forgive me, what could be worse than a 125-gram ration of surrogate bread kept in a museum?


What can shock more than the pages of Tanya Savicheva's diary?


Black frostbitten arms and legs of the Road of Life traffic controllers who stood in the icy water at night so that cars could drive with life for the city's residents?


Zaitsev commits a crime against the heroes of Leningrad by his attempt to show those people not as heroes who fought, sacrificing the most precious thing for a person - life - to the altar of Victory, but as victims. Those who were sacrificed for some incomprehensible goals and ideals.

This is the very rewriting against which, in theory, the Putin Constitution should have worked. But that doesn't work for some reason. And this is a topic for another conversation.

And now I propose another video material, which perfectly and honestly tells about what Andrei Zaitsev is. I don’t want to quote, Galina Shcherba perfectly understands the artistic value of this film. No less thoroughly than Bair Irincheev and Dmitry Puchkov analyze the historical value.

Review of the film directed by Andrei Zaitsev. Images and meanings.

What I understood. And I realized the following: everything that is happening today in Russian cinema, I do not know by whose will, but is aimed at the most vile rewriting of history. To replace historical values. To devalue the feat of the SOVIET people in the Great Patriotic War. The mocking setting of the blockade was not a feat, but a disaster.

Depreciation of war, devaluation. Replacing “remember and be proud” with “grieve and repent”. With all the ensuing consequences.

Where is your Constitution, Mr Putin? Where is the protection of our historical values?

And isn't it time to seriously think about what is happening with Russian cinema and where in ten years the Vlasov clique of the RVIO is leading us? Do we need such a story?

Today on "Zoya", which is terrifying, by hook or by crook they are trying to drive the audience, especially young people.


Maybe it's time to stop the stream of nightmarish images that RVIO and Medinsky are trying to shed on us from the screens? To develop a certain concept of a military theme in particular and an artistic depiction of our history in general?

Well, you can't do it the way everything is happening now!

Think, dear readers, the last veterans and the last workers of the rear, including the inhabitants of besieged Leningrad, are leaving. And scoundrels spat upon by the "truth of life" leave the historical cinema.

And who is left? There remain indifferent and no longer believing citizens of a country, who are often disgusted with looking into the past.

The perfect herd. Easy to manage.

Is this what we are so neatly led to? Victims of the besieged Leningrad instead of heroes, alcoholic and criminal Alexander Matrosov, schizophrenic Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, children-saboteurs "Bastards" ...

Who's next? And then, as I understand it, is it Vlasov, Krasnov, Akhmet-Girey, Denikin, Yudenich?

Yes, a country with such a great past cannot but have a “great” future. And this, frankly, kills.

        In this case, the author of the article is no less terrible than the director Andrei Zaitsev ...

          And then, the main question: what does Zaitsev want to show us? The horror of the blockade?

          No, he wants to show that there was no heroism and self-sacrifice in the USSR, that there was one incessant horror of life. All this for state money, i.e. taxes collected from us. I always want to ask such "creators" - how much did they pay?
          Quote: R. Skomorokhov

          Skomorokhov's strange position has long been known. He is either an ardent "defender of historical values", then no less ardent anti-Soviet. In my opinion, what he is ordered, he writes. He will be commanded ..., oh, to work as a political officer. He knows how to burn with a verb! You can't take that away from him.

            The article and the viewing of the trailer caused mixed feelings.

            Yes, about the value of the "film masterpiece" and the "highest qualities" of the "talented" creator Zaitsev, Roman is undoubtedly right: both Leningrad and Leningraders are shown by the bastard "artist" as disgustingly fabulous. And Zaitsev's references to Granin and Bergholz are untenable: he nothing did not understand what they were talking about and interpreted their true memories в their nightmarish Hollywood images of horror films, turning Soviet people in fabulous zombies (a very accurate definition of Roman), and Leningrad - in a fabulous cemetery And this was fighting city with fighting heroic PEOPLE! Although, of course, there have been wild cases.

            What about personal responsibility of Putin for this "masterpiece", it is (in my opinion) a strong overkill. Just as the emotional and colorful creator Zaitsev went overboard with Leningrad and Leningraders, so the author of the article about the "masterpiece" goes overboard with Putin's guilt. Yes, under the current president a lot of wonderful things are happening. Including - and the glorification of controversial figures in Russian history, some of whom, I believe, the time will come - will be dismantled. Yes, Putin is the president and has a lot of power. But he, nevertheless, is not Lukashenka, so that personally engage in all the affairs of Russia, down to the smallest. Although the activities of his adviser Medinsky casts a shadow on himself.

              And Zaitsev's references to Granin and Bergholz are untenable: he did not understand what they were talking about, and interpreted their true memories into his nightmarish Hollywood images of horror films, turning Soviet people into fairytale zombies (a very accurate definition of Roman), and Leningrad into a fairy tale cemetery And this was a fighting city with fighting heroic PEOPLE! Although, of course, there have been wild cases.
              Vladimir, I think that for this "work" Zaitsev will be given an award and a prize. And that means money to make an even more "truthful" film about the Great Patriotic War. He lives in a world of cash, intrigue, sodomy, banditry and zombies. Therefore, whatever he does, he will work out himself. He made a film about himself and his own kind. It is a pity that our money. And I really want to know who gave him money for this.

                  And I already stopped hoping. For I know that loot and hatred for the USSR will win. Capitalism is like that. And the task is to blacken the USSR by ANY means. For the Russian Federation, in comparison with the USSR, is a pug in economic, military and cultural terms. But the task is to raise the Russian Federation. To do this, you need to invest in education, production, research. This is not done. The money is allocated and goes into the right pockets. And for the rest - blackening, it's cheaper.

              In my opinion, this is not the case.
              After the war, the symbol of the besieged Leningrad - O. Berggolts, the authorities not only became unnecessary, but even dangerous, and the authorities themselves tried to somehow smooth out all the memories of the blockade. The fact of the matter is that these memories were monstrous and nightmarish ...

                You see, there are tones, midtones and shades. And there is a clear line between truth and falsehood. And when they NOT met, the border is carelessly crossed, then the truth turns into a lie. Zaitsev to enhance the effect much exaggerated the terrible the truth... It turned out to be a terrible, insulting lie in the style of Hollywood.

                Do not hesitate, take and read what Olga Berggolts wrote - all the answers are in her poems. All wars and blockades are nightmares, but people overcome the nightmare if they are people, not zombies. And for a snack - "all wars and revolutions crashed on the grating of the Summer Garden ..." This is Akhmatova.

    Not. There are enough documents, memoirs, memoirs, books, after reading which one can draw only one conclusion: Leningrad was not a kingdom of death inhabited by zombies that had lost their human appearance.

    People worked, factories produced products, let us recall the Sudaev submachine gun, who designed it and who produced it. The Svetlana plant, where my grandmother worked. Yes, people died, but they did not lose their human appearance, and defended their city.
    Glory to them all defenders of Leningrad, and soldiers and civilians. Eternal memory to the victims, and to my grandmother's brother who died at the Pulkovo Heights.

      The novel has raised the important topic of historical falsification in contemporary cinema and TV.
      Moreover, they are done insidiously: by mixing particles of truth and half-truths with lies and distorting the truth about those great and, at the same time, the hardest days in the history of our Motherland.
      The ambitions of directors and hacks, their right to "artistic rethinking", should not be justified.
      On the other hand, we must always remember why there was a blockade of Leningrad and the hardest defeats of our troops in 1941, 42, which put millions of our compatriots in inhuman conditions for survival.
      What to do? To give a shock to this kind of "masters of the arts", I show true films about the war, there are a lot of them (Hot Snow, Lark, In war as in war, etc.), limiting handicrafts in the box office and in print.
      It is necessary to honestly bring the real, not "varnished", in the words of G.K. Zhukov, history of the Great Patriotic War to the youth, avoiding clichés and deceit, like obscene filmmakers and authors of some books too.
      Otherwise, even in the current article, the author wrote down the traitors Vlasov, Krasnov, Akhmet-Girey in one line with the real Russian officer and patriot A.I. Denikin and added General Yudenich, who defeated the Turks in the Caucasus in World War I and died in 1 year.

        If it comes to that, then for the first time during WWII the German army was stopped just near Leningrad, on the Voronka River, and did not go further.
        Then they learned to somehow improve life, there was more food,

    We don’t know much about the blockade, maybe we don’t need to stir up the past, it’s like the veterans who fought in the present, the brain selectively erased especially terrible moments. Passing the town of Shatki, in the Nizhny Novgorod region, I stop at the city memorial "Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten", next to the cemetery, where Tanya Savicheva is buried, the grave is literally 10 meters from the tribune of the memorial. She survived the blockade, but after being evacuated with the orphanage, she died of intestinal tuberculosis in a local hospital in the 44th, in the summer. Her grave in the city cemetery was found only in 1971. Remember the blockade, yes, it is necessary, but it seems to me not necessary to delve into the human vices of people who lived in this hell. "There is a tsar in the world, this tsar is merciless, his name is HUNGER ..." and the fact that the photos and film cameras were handed over is certainly correct. And don't get them now.

      This "people" does not have a Last Judgment!
      Hell (Hebrew "Gein") is a place of punishment for sins and spiritual cleansing, where the soul of a person goes after death.
      Kabbalistic books say that after death the soul of a person irresistibly strives to reunite with the Creator, but sins prevent this. Separation from the light of the Creator causes the soul to suffer severe torments, which are the punishment for committed sins. For purification, the soul is placed in a spiritual substance - Gein, - so that, having purified itself, it will be rewarded with the light of the Creator in the world of spiritual pleasure - Gan-Eden.
      The purification in Geinoma lasts no more than one year (Mishna Eduet 2:10). The Book of Zohar (for the chapter of Vayekha) says: purification in Hell lasts twelve months, half of the time the soul is purified by (disembodied) “fire” for violating prohibitions, and half of the time by (disembodied) “cold” - for violating the prescriptive commandments.
      It also says that once a week, on Shabbat, Gein stops his work and the souls of sinners are there at rest.
      How to get rid of the torment of Hell? It is said in Rambam ("Laws of Repentance", end of the 3rd chapter): "The repentance of all sinners and villains, and apostates, and the like, who have repented - explicitly or hidden, - is accepted ..." Full repentance not only saves from punishment, but and turns the crimes committed into merit.
      "Sweat" for a year, with a break for "Shabbat", and in paradise! And ... yes, remember that a crime against the goyim is not a crime!

Somehow, according to their words, another picture of the blockade is being formed. But they are zombies! They were forbidden to tell the truth !? lol Anything happened. But it was not a zombie city, but a city of people. In which there were both the weak in spirit and the scum. Contemporary cinema aims to tarnish the entire Soviet past. Exceptions are rare. Why? is it not because insignificant gray people cannot rise in any way, for they are not capable of anything. So we have to belittle, denigrate everything great.

          And I think this is why. Look around - how many people now support such ideas, how many there are more of them. How many people are beginning to call to repent for the past. How many such personalities somehow end up in the media space and broadcast from TV, youtube and other platforms. Where do they all come from if propaganda doesn't work?

    Looking at all this abomination taking place in the media, literature, art and cinema, streams of lies and sewage on the TV screens of central channels, between endless advertisements of prostatitis, looking at how culture and morality are destroyed with passion and impunity, how is the substitution of historical values, I come to the conclusion, how correctly and far-sightedly we were taught on, so many now hated by "liberals" and dermocrats of all stripes, the 1st department of Marxism-Leninism, methods of conducting the ideological and psychological war of our opponents. The most offensive thing is that it is on stream exactly and according to the methodology, the wills of a dead, but not stupid Pole, by our hands (long gone, according to his own definition) of the new nobility, the ruling class, and with our own money. If we argue logically, what allows us to do normal Soviet education, but does not allow modern Gref, digital, egesh, then we can come to the only conclusion that the country's leadership, more likely by its destructive actions, is similar to the colonial administration, encouraging the destruction of historical memory and culture, the educational system and education, works in the interests of a hostile power, destroying society, traditional moral and cultural values, putting into practice what was not possible in 41. A war of destruction has been waged against us, our civilization, the people for a long time purposefully and systematically, persistently and steadily, and our nobility, etc. the leadership or has not yet woken up from the euphoria of the insane and gratuitous for them dough and permissiveness, complete impunity in another world and with another perception of reality, far from reality. But most likely, they don't keep fools there, they deliberately stay in other trenches of this front line and try on other people's insignia in expectation of preferential treatment of permission to kiss the pen of the residents of the "house on the hill", as it happened more than once in our ancient history.

    The highest degree of incomparable, iridescent with all the colors of the rainbow, "beauty" of our present, therefore, its legitimacy, its inevitability as a stage of human progress must finally become clear to us, stupid, dull, poor. And this is possible only in comparison with the "dark horror of the apocalyptic Soviet past." This is where the legs of all these films grow.
    And how else to hammer into our heads that the great Cthulhu is literally pulling us by the scruff towards the bright feudal future, and we with all our might put our feet on the floor shouting "USSR !!!", "Stalin !!!" , "Save !!!" - here's how to draw us into progress, the way Cthulhu understands it ??

    Difficult to Medinsky, difficult. For we also understand and know something.
    We know that any cthulhu, who is also a bloodsucker, first breaks the victim's spine, immobilizing it and thus turning it into canned food, and then, slowly, day after day, sucks blood from the victim until the victim finally dies. Why doesn't Mr. Medinsky get some money for a movie based on a book from the Stalker series? Success will definitely be guaranteed! And even the box office.
    Will not roll off. Everything is there - about today's Russia under the rule of bloodsuckers, pseudo-giants, omnipresent flesh, pseudo-dogs, chimeras, snorks, bandits, hucksters, corrupt guardians - there is our undisguised current horror concentrated in a small Pripyat Zone. And everything is at a glance, everything becomes clear to the last logical detail. Weak?

    The question is different. What is our cinema counting on when making such films? The fact that today's life has taught people to believe only in bad things, and young people will believe.
    I watched many videos and live coverage of the protests yesterday. Attention was drawn to a single picket in one of the Siberian cities - a man with a placard: "He is ready to threaten us with war in order to stay on the throne."
    In this sense, the film about the Leningrad blockade is a threat to us with war from someone who wants to stay on the throne. An internal or external war - it doesn't matter! War. "Have you seen this war? Well, how is it to you, hehe?" This is to give to break the spine. And then we'll start dodging.
    It would be nice for the great Cthulhu to switch to his fellow bloodsuckers. There is much more blood in there than in us put together.

      How did I not die of shame?

        You must.

        Turning pale
        Gritting my teeth to a crunch,
        From the native trench
        One
        You gotta break away
        And parapet
        Slip under fire
        Must.
        You must.
        Though you hardly come back
        Don't you dare!
        The battalion commander repeats.
        Even tanks
        (They're made of steel!)
        Three steps from the trench
        Are burning.
        You must.
        You can't pretend
        In front of,
        What you don't hear in the night
        How almost hopeless
        "Sister!"
        Someone there
        Under fire, screaming ...

    If you want to see "a real masterpiece of modern cinema", they ask for an Oscar.
    There, by the way, the image of Zoya Anatolyevna, for some reason, bifurcated, opposes a drunken Russian sadist, a kind of Raskolnikov with a Mauser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QZdrtPVOuU

    Yes, and here's what else, it comes to a paradox, beyond any logic, with which buffoons who are stupefied with dough and permissiveness, while encouraging news in the territory of the former state, are not familiar, but rather believe that the rabble will get away anyway. A statesman who, with his comrades-in-arms, each name of which is inscribed in golden letters in our history, from absolute zero, in 20, performed a miracle and created a great mighty industrial power, with a world-class science and education, with a united and selfless society that made it possible to survive and win in the war with a united Europe, having suffered unprecedented sacrifices in history. Who has rebuilt cities and villages destroyed and burned to the ground in a few years, created a nuclear shield and a cosmetic industry, etc. and so on, he gets from his contemporaries only tubs of slop, lies and hypertrophied hatred, it seems, because then they did not succeed then what they did now.
    At the same time, crocodile tears are honored and shed, with all the forces of the entire propaganda machine they come up with some merits and talents, justifying crimes with imaginary genius and principles, create the so-called. centers with NGOs and monuments to the drunken foreman, the oath-breaker who betrayed his people, who took a leading role in the destruction of a great power, the heritage and conquests of our great ancestors. Now in Russia alien idols and moral values ​​are implanted, instead of the spiritual and creative they "rule" loot as the main criterion of all spheres of life, lies that permeate everything, treason, meanness and betrayal as the main virtues.

    ...Amazed. The inaction of the vertical, the lack of organizational conclusions, the participation of the Ministry of Culture in this - the Americans, of course, distort history, but how did our government structure find itself in their ranks? There is such a word in Russian - libel, but everything that I think I will not write here, they will not miss it. I'll write about something else. I live and work in the Volga region, sometimes, at work, I visit St. Petersburg, and leaving the Moscow railway station I see a large building on the opposite side, and on the roof there is an inscription "Leningrad - Hero City". And I think, well, there are people who remember! This is important, because those who defended the city are selfless people, heroes! In such conditions, in which we could not live, they fought, worked. Much has been written and filmed on this topic. Once I had to spend the night with a friend in St. Petersburg, he put me in a separate room, and there he had many books. I could not sleep and I was revising the books and came across a description of the blockade. I don't remember the author. I certainly do not need to campaign for, I am well-read on this topic, but I got carried away and read for a long time, and was amazed to the depths of my soul by what the defenders and residents did, how they defended. Well, for this screenwriter, director, cameraman and lover of lies, morality is useless to read

      Dear colleague riva.04, the book you have read is about the resilience of a person who is convinced of the correctness of his ideals and therefore is ready to make any sacrifices for them. At present, ideals are almost destroyed, and everything is being done to destroy them to the end, and the emptiness that has formed in a person is forcibly filled with assiduously formed mass media, and throughout life with chewing-grasping reflexes.
      I must note with great bitterness that this is partly successful. Two years ago people demanded: "Where are the promised 25 million high-paying jobs?!?" Bearing in mind the powerful industrialization of the country on an advanced technological basis. For human dignity is determined only by a decent job. Now this topic has subsided. Society has stratified into recipients of certain benefits, handouts, one-time payments, various small benefits, preferences, more and more people who become consumers of food from the hands of the authorities and already look disapprovingly at those who are trying to defend their human dignity.
      And the power itself, formed from cynics who initially did not know any ideals, by their nature grabbing, - this power fenced off from the population by a rampart of law enforcement officers, pushed people against strong, trained guys in camouflage, with shields, electric shockers and clubs in their hands and from - behind them, through the lips of his political scientists and mustachioed press secretaries, he shouts accusingly to the population: "Do you want to destroy the country? Are you with Navalny?" At the same time, she herself did everything in order to make it happen. No, people are not with Navalny, they, often without realizing it themselves, are with the heroes of the Great Patriotic War. So the authorities are doing everything to change this situation. How did Lenin say about cinema?

    People, you say, heroic inhabitants of the city? What is the name of this city now? The greatness of the past is confirmed by the greatness of the present. And with the present seams, then the rotten past is dragged to this present.

    Some strange pattern can be traced in the so-called world of arts (in cinema in particular), in the internet, including on VO. An array of films, TV series, articles is being created, with the obligatory denigration of the USSR. Moreover, in any of its periods, in any combination (household, military, scientific, personal, etc.), with varying degrees of camouflage, the purpose of which is to show the Soviet people as a conglomerate of gray personalities from top to bottom, who have created a "shovel swamp" into which they pull and own people, and the whole world. Dullness, stupidity, meanness, fear, blood and horror. And if, and there are some "bright characters", they have no chance of happiness, and a decent life. When discussing any issue, anti-Soviet people appear who, with varying degrees of argumentation, prove that the socialist choice is not only bad, but also criminal. But the times of the "criminal USSR" have sunk into oblivion, no? Then, according to the rule of political struggle: "Ignore the dangerous, kill the smart", it turns out that for these characters the socialist choice is still dangerous! And judging by the activation latest This choice is about to happen, is it? Or, does another principle work: "Praising oneself = humiliating the enemy"? Working with this formula is simple, if there is something to boast about, and there is something to reproach the enemy for, then it is very effective. If your achievements are inferior, then you need to blame the enemy to maintain the balance of the formula. Obviously, the same thing happened when the opposite side was in control. What is correct?
    Let me quote from the poem "Vasily Turkin" by A.T. Tvardovsky.
    And all else else
    Don't live for sure -
    Without which? Without the truth
    Truth right into the beating soul
    If it were thicker
    No matter how bitter.

    We have no law or it does not work like that. Shown here is a Hollywood-style thriller. But in the same America, if someone did something like that about Pearl Habor, they would forget where the movie camera is. And they could have been imprisoned, they would have found for what. The author was clearly fulfilling the order of the comprador bourgeoisie. The goals have long been clear to return the "holy 90s" and finish off Russia. To do this, you need to lie, lie and lie about the history of our People, like Goebbels.

    It is necessary to make films about the war only with clean hands. And the story of the Leningrad blockade also requires tact. I don’t want to speak in high phrases, but these are sacred pages of history for us.

    I haven't watched "Zoya", but TV ads are active. I understand that we will no longer have good truthful films about the war. The "technology" is lost, so to speak. I recently watched a documentary about Beloborodov. And there, in particular, it was told about the film "One Day of the Division Commander" - this is also a film about Beloborodov, but fictional. And this film (about the division commander) can be trusted 100%. Because Beloborodov himself was the consultant. Moreover, he himself was present on the set.
    Where can we find veterans now? So they lie ("fantasize") without remembering themselves, just to cut money. Better than the state ones - this is right away, you can not wait for money from cinemas - what if the film fails?

      Sometimes they lie, but at least they shoot well, with high quality. How do you like in August 44th? I don't know how true it is, but the film is great. And filmed in the old tradition.

      30 years ago, and even later, there were still enough fighters. But for some reason, Bastards, Penal Battles, etc. began to be born, and this flow does not stop. And it's not about veteran consultants. After all, if you wish, you can remove both Panfilov's men and the Brest Fortress. There are excellent books, there are mostly documents available from those years. Why did the fashion go to pull them out of those events only g .., and show it exclusively? To make a sensation. I always wonder: did these people have parents? no one died in their families? are they aliens? They blacken their ancestors! Where does this fashion come from ?! Remember, perhaps, some kind of hope appeared when the movie, which was not Oscar in general, was released: "We are from the future." Just because there were no NKVD officers and political instructors fighting against their army, the army is shown not as a bunch of drunken cattle. It stood out sharply against the background of the rest, filmed, allegedly, on the basis of documentary materials.

    If you are interested in the history of besieged Leningrad, how the city - Hero lived and fought, I advise you to read the wonderful book "Leningrad Works" by P.N. Luknitsky.

    Thank you very much, I will definitely read it, and I am already interested in the history of the city of Leningrad. Thank you.
    (My biggest dream is to visit the city of St. Petersburg, learn the history and see these raised bridges.)

    And as I read, the question arose - why were CHILDREN left in Leningrad? Who organized the evacuation so that the machines and iron were taken out and the children left behind? The orphanage - most likely, these are the children of the parents who died already during the blockade, but why did they stay, even with their parents, and not be taken out with children's institutions? I would like to know the answers ...
