Amnesty of policemen and Bandera in the 1950s in the USSR and its fruits

59

May 9, 1945 - the date of the end of the Great Patriotic War, the Victory Day. This is a milestone and a new starting point. But by and large, the war did not end that day. And it's not even about the continued focal resistance of the Nazis on the territory of the defeated Nazi Germany and in other countries of Central Europe. This, for example, is about a decade of confrontation with the Bandera gangs that terrorized the western regions of the USSR.


The figures speak for themselves: from 1945 to 1955, 25 Soviet servicemen, border guards, and state security officials died in the confrontation with Nazi accomplices in western Ukraine. About 32 party workers died at the hands of Bandera. There are also tens of thousands of civilians. Until now, there is no exact data on what losses the Soviet Union suffered from the Bandera activity, which was fueled by foreign intelligence services. Experts also argue about the size of the so-called Bandera underground and how many foreign mercenaries and Western intelligence agents operated in it until the mid-1950s.

This topic is raised by Nikita Mikhalkov in the next issue of Besogon TV. He notes the legislative act that appeared in the Soviet Union in the mid-50s, signed by Kliment Voroshilov. The act prescribed a broad amnesty for those who collaborated with the German occupiers. Within a short period of time, those who wore Nazi uniforms a few years ago, being members of various detachments of Nazi Germany, were released. The amnesty affected thousands of policemen and OUN members (OUN is an extremist organization of Ukrainian nationalists banned in Russia).

The further development of events was as follows: Bandera decided to lay down weapon, but at times intensified their activities in relation to youth in the western regions of the Soviet Union. Western intelligence agencies spared no expense. Sometimes it reached the point of absurdity - when former accomplices of the Nazis found themselves in the state structures of the same Western Ukraine and got the opportunity to implement Bandera's ideas in educational institutions and not only. And this contagion has reached the XNUMXst century. The fruits are to be reaped today.

    I don’t understand what the Bandera people have to do with 60? 30 years ago, with the collapse of the USSR, the anaconda loop continued, and unfortunately continues. To our great regret, the West was able to drive a wedge between Russia and How many thousands of stoned Natsyks are in Ukraine? And how many resist our operation? Meehan, the question is not for you, calm down.

          And in the 90s, they openly walked in Sevastopol under flags with crosses and attacked Russian speakers in a crowd. I remember the case of a saleswoman to a Ukrainian woman who answered that she did not speak Ukrainian language and could not understand it. She almost exploded, she found a calm one from the locals who translated it. In the end, this one spoke in Russian, got rude and left.

        These are the shortcomings that Khrushchev amnestied

        It also had an effect that Stalin canceled the tower in 1947. Before that, Hitler's accomplices were hanged, and then they began to put them in jail for 25 years, probably with the expectation that before they die, they would bring the country at least some benefit. But Stalin, even in a nightmare, could not have dreamed that Khrushch would release them in less than 10 years.

    Change of state ideology, stopping the execution of the sixth five-year plan (when in 4 years the country's national income grew by a factor of one and a half!), amnesty for Bandera and much more. The USSR took the path leading to the abyss just then. And all because of hostility to Stalin?

    The enemies of the communists are "chameleons", opportunists, and always, both under the USSR and after they captured the USSR, they say and write what is beneficial to them at the moment.
    Here, the enemies of the communists who seized the RSFSR, from their Perestroika, chanted in unison that ALL those repressed by the communists for political reasons are "innocent victims, the best, most hardworking, the gene pool and the color of the nation."
    And now they have the guilty - Bandera, and accusations of the communists that they were little repressed and destroyed.

    I grew up in Western Ukraine - my father served there. Moreover, my father replaced three garrisons there - Vladimir-Volynsky, Ivano-Frankivsk and Khmelnitsky. In the first, Bandera was a pearl from all the cracks, in large cities they behaved more quietly, but I remember the yellow-black flags that periodically appeared in the city center. The headquarters of the district was in Lvov, and my father sometimes went there for meetings in the official GAZ-69. Never managed not to cut the tires, break the headlight or windshield. This is the late 60s and early 70s. When I was already serving myself, everyone was surprised that somehow in Lvov they thought of creating a military-political school. Today I am not surprised - with the collapse of the USSR, almost everyone in the school instantly took the oath to the trident. only about 20 graduate cadets and several officers refused ..

      In 1953, my grandfather, a fighter pilot, after Korea was transferred to serve near Brody. Families were forbidden to go beyond the perimeter of the military camp, they could be killed. Planes were periodically raised to "process" the positions of the forest brothers. This continued until 1956. Then it became calmer. And then they were transferred again.

    On September 17, 1955, the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR "On the amnesty of Soviet citizens who collaborated with the occupiers during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945" was issued. According to it, persons convicted of aiding the enemy for a term of up to 10 years inclusive were released from places of detention. Similar cases, which were under investigation by that time, were discontinued. Nazi accomplices who were sentenced to more than 10 years had the sentences imposed by the court reduced by half. The amnesty was not applied to punishers convicted of murdering and torturing Soviet citizens.

    By March 1956, by decree of September 17, 59 people were released from punishment. Among them were 610 sentenced to up to 51 years in labor camps (ITL) for aiding the enemy, for serving in the German army, police and special German formations. 563 persons were also released, whose sentence (under article 10 of the decree) was reduced by half. The term of 8047 prisoners was also reduced by half, but they were left in places of detention for further serving their sentences. 2 convicted of espionage, terror and sabotage were not affected by the amnesty.

    However, even those convicts who, due to the severity of their deeds, could not count on release under the decree of September 17, had the opportunity to be released if they showed themselves well in work and behavior. They were helped by the order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR "On the promotion of leading workers from among the imprisoned miners of the Vorkutugol" plant dated October 31, 1955, which made it possible to reduce the sentence. Soon, similar documents were adopted in relation to other "enterprises" of the Gulag.

    Another opportunity for release appeared after the publication on March 24, 1956 of the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR "On the consideration of cases against persons serving sentences for political, official and economic crimes." According to this decree, new commissions were formed in places of deprivation of liberty to verify the validity of the conviction of persons in this category, as well as to consider the issue of the expediency of keeping in custody those who, although they committed such crimes, no longer represented a “state and public danger”.

    By February 6, 1956, 200 such commissions were sent to the camps of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. They made decisions on the possibility of release on the spot. In addition, they were allowed to reduce the terms of imprisonment for persons sentenced to disproportionately large sentences, as well as to release individual convicts on the guarantee of relatives or public organizations. For example, on September 6, 1956, the commission of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR studied the case of one of the participants in the massacre of members of the underground organization Young Guard, former policeman Dmitry Bautkin. The measure of punishment determined for him was reduced to 14 years in prison. They took into account the fact that he had already served about 10 years, had 623 working days of credits and a positive description of the administration of the Vorkuta ITL.

    By decision of the commissions, not only the leaders of the camp production were released, but also the elderly, the disabled and the seriously ill. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR provided for measures for their relocation, employment and housing in a new place. In total, by November 19, 1956, by decision of the commissions of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, 107 people were released from places of deprivation of liberty. It is not possible to determine the proportion of convicted war criminals among them, since since 979 they have not been registered as an independent registration category. It remains only to assume that they constituted a significant part of the liberated.

    Nationalism is criminal by definition. The rise of one nation over others is condemned by the Bible. Unfortunately, the political elites of the post-Soviet period, in order to unite the citizens of their countries, chose nationalism, where everything Russian became negation. This can be seen in the Baltic countries, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Ukraine. But not in all these countries, Russians, and not only Russians, but also Ossetians, Abkhazians ... did not allow themselves to be turned into second-class people. Only in two (so far) countries of Georgia and Ukraine, Russians have been subjected to genocide with the use of the army. Unfortunately, there are Nazis in many countries of the world (Russia, by the way, is no exception) What can be done as a vaccination against Nazism? The basic law of any country is the Constitution, which means that it and the criminal code should contain an article prohibiting Nazism and define responsibility for this crime. All special services and law enforcement agencies should work to eliminate this criminal ideology. hi

      "You are not the first and n the last, but, some do it out of misunderstanding belay , others with malicious intent. bully
      And now to the content!
      Let's start with definitions, Yes, without understanding the essence, without understanding the CONTENT, it will "work" for our "sworn" partners and foreign agents. bully

      Nationalism (French nationalisme) - ideology and policy direction, the fundamental principle of which is the thesis of the value of the nation as the highest form of social unity and its primacy in the state-forming process.. Those. there is no claim to exclusivity, and even more so WITHOUT an attempt on the rights and lives of other nations.

      National Socialism(German Nationalsozialismus, Nazism for short) - a form of social structure that connects socialism with extreme nationalism and racism, as well as the name of the ideology that justifies this kind of social order. This is an aggressive ideology and policy, a guide to action, which Germany really demonstrated during the Second World War (WW2)

      Fascism (Italian fascismo from fascio "union, bundle, bunch, association") - a generalized name forextreme right political movements, ideologies and their corresponding form of government of a dictatorial type. An example is Mussolini and Franco.

      What happened in Germany (Reich), as well as in the post-Soviet space you are considering (and not only) and on the Okraine, is NAZISM.
      confusing one with the other ]you allow yourself to be manipulated by our "sworn" partners and foreign agents., т.And. provide THEM with the right of anyone who said that he is a Yakut, Tatar, Russian, Chuvash and further down the list , ACCUSE OF NAZISM. How it was done successfully, especially in the 90s and beyonde, "peace-loving and truth-loving" liberals. bully But, "for some reason "shamelessly giving all possible TASTIES - RIGHTS and OPPORTUNITIES to quite certain representatives, а at the same time, others have only the RIGHT to be OBLIGED and GUILTY.
      As it is now, it is practiced in the WEST and stimulated by the US, the European Union, NATO. True, now it is called a hybrid war.

      Because a new force has matured in the USSR, a new well-organized class, which took power.

      The "new well-organized class" is the rotten top of the CPSU, very well organized, purposefully filtering all power structures, starting with Andropov. It was under him that the practical implementation of preparations for the restoration of capitalism in the USSR began.

    The question of what to do with the captured Nazis in this situation remains relevant.

    Modern ideologists do not care whom to denigrate in the Soviet period. You need Stalin, they will denigrate him, you need another, they will denigrate him too. And thereby smear the USSR with mud. Yes, the police were released. But where were they? They were either in Siberia, in Norilsk, in similar places without the right to leave. But after the collapse of the USSR, they could safely return to their homeland.

    Lenin and Stalin in the 20s and 30s through the indigenization-Ukrainization of the Russian cities of Little Russia themselves let the genie out of the bottle.

    Everything covered here is half-truth. Those policemen who participated in the crimes were executed. Others fled across the Union. The statute of limitations did not apply to them. They were subject to execution. But besides the police, there were artists, priests .. those who worked during the occupation. And there were a lot of them. One of my acquaintances was baptized twice. During the Soviet regime and during the occupation. such a simple question, as Mikhalkov portrayed it.

    Khrushchev raised the rating of the CPSU. He also led the party.
    He needed to stay in power. This is where the party nomenklatura came from.
    After all, what is happening in Ukraine, in Central Asia now, it was before, but not so openly.
    It was Gorbachev who untied everyone's tongues, and then others untied their hands.
    Everything was hushed up. There was only one answer - In our country, headed by the CPSU, this cannot be! We are all brothers! One family!.
    You can talk a lot about it. Many have their own examples. I will only say one thing:
    An Estonian served with me in 1985. So he said even then: - "I serve in the Soviet army, but my son will serve in the Estonian one."
    Q: When did he decide?
    He was then 20 years old... But didn't he come to these thoughts in one year?

    Amnesty of policemen and Bandera in the 1950s in the USSR and its fruits

    It was necessary to uproot it so that sprouts would not sprout in the future.

    Needless to say, not everyone was released. Such as Kravchuk who carried milk in caches, or one character from Solzhenitsyn and Ivan Denisovich (I forgot his name) who also carried food to Bandera, and try not to take it, they will come and cut it out. I read a book of memoirs of the writer Leonid Borodin, who was convicted in 68 for anti-Soviet activities, and so Bandera and policemen and even Beria were sitting with him! I believe that then working hands were required, they believed that they could no longer bear any danger. Yes, what was the truth, the point is in them, but in the rotten communist elite! If you remember (and I recently revised the map again), then more people voted for the preservation of the Union in the Khmelnytsky region than in the Crimea. True, in the three most western regions, less than 50%, except for Transcarpathian.
