“Taras Bulba and his comrades” returned to Ukraine. The Bohdan Khmelnitsky battalion gave its first battle to the Ukrainian army

The first official, so to speak, part of the New Year holidays has ended. New Year, Christmas... There is also an unofficial part ahead, the old New Year, Epiphany... I am not a religious person. I go to the temple from time to time. I don’t stand at sermons, I don’t take part in religious processions and services. And I don’t ask God for anything, which periodically causes negativity from old women.

I just mentally say thank you for everything he did for me and, I hope, will do more. Like, probably, most of those who know what a shell or bullet flying nearby sounds like. When something suddenly pushes you to do something, and then you see a fragment or bullet in the wall exactly where your head was a second ago.



Christmas. I look at Ukrainian sources and see... Odessa residents swimming in the sea. It turns out that according to the “new Ukrainian Orthodoxy” in Ukraine, January 6th is Epiphany... No one is driving these people into the sea by force. They really came to bathe in holy water. The state said it, the people accepted it. Not all. But some part of it.

I wonder how they will celebrate Easter in Ukraine now? European? Without the descent of the Holy Fire? Well, this is the business of every Ukrainian.

I had an idea about why people on this earth for a long time could not create even a semblance of a state. Why did some Ukrainians sell others into slavery? Why did this territory change hands so often between different neighbors?

This is probably precisely why Ukrainians so calmly forget their own. Their ancestors, their heroes, their traitors... A new owner has come. He ordered us to live in a new way and... The majority agreed to live this way. And those who did not want to betray the memory of their ancestors - under the knife or into slavery. They, these modern Taras Bulbas and their Cossacks, must disappear from Ukrainian soil.

And I remembered one recent event that happened in the Northern Military District zone - the current Tarasy Bulba. I’m talking about Ukrainians who were “ideologically indoctrinated” for a long time, who participated in battles as soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. About prisoners who categorically refused to return to modern Ukraine and asked to be given the opportunity to participate in the liberation of this country from the Zelensky regime.

For a long, long time, the issue of forming a unit of such soldiers was resolved. And it’s not even that it’s difficult to decide to trust weapon former enemy. It’s not even that enemy intelligence agents could be among the prisoners. It's a matter of trust.

It's easy to make a penal battalion. But what kind of trust can we talk about then? What is needed is a full-fledged unit capable of performing the same tasks as the battalions of the Russian Army. Without detachments and other delights of penal units.

And now the time has come when the first such unit, the battalion named after Bohdan Khmelnitsky, was not only created and trained, but also received a baptism of fire.

Without truth, people do not live, but suffer


It was not for nothing that I remembered this old Russian proverb. Now there are quite a lot of publications on the Internet in which captured members of the Wehrmacht Army talk about how they were called up, what mood prevails in the units, and so on. You listen to these men and are amazed at how they lived before they were “conscripted” (captured) into the army. My house is on the edge. Whatever they tell me, I will do. This (war) does not concern me...

And, paradoxically, only in captivity do they begin to think about why there was such hopelessness in life, such confusion. The gut senses a lie, but the brain says it’s true. And so do the people around. And that little worm inside wakes up. Keep your head down. We will suffer, but the children will heal. Only under shells and drones the head is cleared. Only the end is here, it whistled past and the neighbor got it...

I periodically observed how the soldiers of Bohdan Khmelnytsky’s battalion trained. Fortunately, information periodically appeared on channels in TG. I watched the videos and saw the soldiers. Not “meat” with dull eyes, but soldiers who understand not only why they are going into battle, but also know how to beat the enemy. I saw how a fighting unit was formed from ordinary men. They again became the heirs of their grandfathers, those more than two thousand Ukrainians who became Heroes of the Soviet Union in battles with the German fascists.

So, another battalion appeared in the Russian army. Not a battalion of prisoners, but a battalion of Russian soldiers. And this battalion acted together with other similar units. Not ahead, not behind... The battalion acted shoulder to shoulder with other units of the Cascade operational combat formation.

To act side by side, on the same line with others, without control from the relevant authorities... This is important! Especially for these people. They felt like they were part of a large and strong army, part of a large and strong country. In this regard, President Putin signed a decree on Russian citizenship for volunteers fighting in units of the Russian Armed Forces at the right time.

I had concerns that the soldiers of Bohdan Khmelnytsky’s battalion would be a little “more courageous and reckless.” No matter what psychologists say, a feeling of some kind of guilt is always present. And this feeling makes you demonstrate to others that you are no worse than them. But what happened, if you like, was a miracle created by the unit commanders.

The battalion worked for the LBS clearly, without fanaticism, without fear. We moved into position. We quickly set up shelters and worked on the enemy with a cool head. The battalion's soldiers felt like soldiers of the Russian army. That's all. They have a future. And this is a lot...

Are people seeing the light or...


Lately, I have often heard opinions that Ukrainians have begun to see that zombification is being destroyed. Alas, I do not agree with this opinion. Let me remind you that at one time it took Hitler 6 years to turn the German people into zombies, in order to turn them into a civilized nation. robots for murder.

Ukrainians have been zombified almost since the 90s. Not since 2014 or 2022, but much longer. And the ideas that many Ukrainians broadcast on social networks today are not an act, but a deep conviction. So, it’s not the people who are seeing the light, it’s just those who previously had a “hut on the edge” now understand that the country is being led to destruction. It’s a paradox, but Ukrainians in the Russian army want to fight not only for Russia, but also for Ukraine.

I do not claim that all the fighters of the Khmelnitsky Battalion came to their decision precisely for the reason that I voiced above. There are also those who, even during total propaganda, remained loyal to the Russian world. Those who understood that the collapse of the USSR did not at all mean the collapse of the Russian world.

In general, the appearance of the battalion named after Bohdan Khmelnitsky is proof of that simple truth that even we began to doubt. Ukrainians and Russians are one people. At least some part of Ukrainians.

By the way, I often hear talk about the limited population of Ukraine. Illiterate, ignorant of basic things, selfish, and so on. I have to agree with a lot. Indeed, with education in “Nezalezhnaya” there are complete seams. And in other matters there are a lot of problems.

But where did it start? Blame... dissonance of perception of the world. The child hears Russian speech from childhood. But then he comes to kindergarten, and language appears in his life. More precisely, the overwhelming majority are surzhik. "You are not Russian!" - they instill in kindergarten, then at school and beyond.

But the fighters of the new Russian unit do not have this dissonance. Everything fell into place. The language in which my mother sang lullabies, here it is. Speak up, and no one will say that you can’t do this. Orders and medals of the great-grandfather for exploits in the Great Patriotic War, awards of the father for Afghanistan and labor, memorials to the soldiers who liberated Ukraine from fascism, and so on are not prohibited. Came back historical pride in your people, in your family.

instead of an epilogue


The appearance of a new unit within the Russian army frightened the West and Kyiv. It turned out that those journalists and politicians who, starting in 2013, wrote and spoke about the civil nature of the war in Ukraine were telling the truth. And in Donbass, it was not some mythical Russian units that defended their freedom, but citizens of Ukraine.

Today the number of prisoners of war has increased sharply. And a very serious problem emerged quite clearly. What will be their fate in the future? The SVO will eventually end and...

Obtaining Russian citizenship? It is problematic, unless, of course, some laws are passed to allow this.

Return to Ukraine? More precisely, for the part that remains? Also problematic. The eastern regions of Ukraine provided many times more soldiers for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and therefore they are strangers there too.

Moving to the EU? Are they needed there? Europe is already in a panic about those who went through the war in Donbass, and hardly wants to see new veterans.

At the same time, the question arises: who will restore Ukraine? Who will, excuse the harshness, give birth to Ukrainian women so that they can have children? Those who were not accepted into the Armed Forces of Ukraine due to mobilization? And this, taking into account the not yet adopted but already in force law on mobilization, frankly speaking, is a contingent that is not very suitable for population reproduction.

I think the creation of such units as the Bohdan Khmelnitsky battalion is the way out. This is rehabilitation for those who, due to circumstances, ended up in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and even fought with our troops. These are soldiers who did their duty, who remained faithful to their oath. They just didn’t understand that the Ukraine to which they swore allegiance and the Ukraine after the coup are two different Ukraines.

Now that experience in creating such battalions has been gained, things should go faster...

As far as I know, there are quite a lot of prisoners among the prisoners who want to serve in the Russian army...

            There, 90% of all are those who were driven to the front with a “stick” or rather a summons and given a machine gun.
            And then captivity. In the end, no more than 300 people from all the prisoners have so far been recruited.
            But as the author wrote, this is the beginning. There will be an example and there will be followers.

          The Russian world in the context of nationality and religion is of course fascism. And the majority of Russians, hearing about the Russian world, think exactly this way, that it is about nationality and the Orthodox faith. In schools they teach some kind of refined history, forgetting to tell that the Russian Slavs are Slavs by culture and origin, and also Finno-Ugrians and Turks. Russian culture is made up of great classic writers, many of whom are not entirely Russian by origin, but this does not negate their title as great Russian writers. The same can be said about the great Russian composers, artists and scientists.
          Many people do not realize that the state-forming people are not only Russians, if we mean not a nation, but a nationality, but also the Finno-Ugric Mordovians, from which only Erzya and Moksha remain, and the Burtases, Muroms and Karatai are now Russian. But after asking residents of Ryazan, Moscow region, Nizhny Novgorod, Tver, etc. You are unlikely to hear the story of their origin from the Mordovians. Returning to the people who form the state, perhaps the state is not only a people, but also a territory. Russia received a huge territory from the voluntary entry into its composition of several peoples. One of the first were the Bashkirs with a huge territory, and the last to join the USSR in 1938 were the Tuvans.
          So, before talking about the Russian world, you need to decide what you mean, otherwise the other peoples inhabiting Russia, and there are more than two hundred nationalities and nationalities, will not understand where we are going. I mean which side.

    and after all, those from this battalion would have behaved and reasoned completely differently now. Bogdan Khmelnitsky, if not the Russian army beat them and they had to surrender, but on the contrary, if the Russian army suffered defeats. And then there would be no battalion named after them. Khmelnitsky would not be on Russia's side. The current members of this battalion would then argue which of them and their relatives would receive land with property and Russian slaves in the Crimea, and which in the Kuban...
    By the way, the one whose name this battalion is named after also had completely different views on both the Russians and the Russian Tsardom, only what made him crawl to the Russian Tsar was not the beating of his subjects by the then Russian army, but the beating of his subjects by the Poles. And before that, Khmelnitsky faithfully served the Polish king and, with a sword in his hands near Smolensk, tried to get Russian lands with Russian slaves.
    Well, then it turned out that I had to crawl to the Russian Tsar and ask for protection for both myself and my army. The destructive Russian naivety later made Khmelnitsky a torch of friendship between the two peoples. How the same Russian naivety and gullibility declared Taras Shevchenko to be the torch of friendship between the two peoples. But this obvious Russophobe, for example, in his poem “Gaydamaky,” considered the “Muscovites” the most terrible enemy of the Ukrainians and sang how they cut off the heads of “Muscovites.”
    There are so many examples about this Russia, they say, “friendly people”, from privates to hetmans, but Russia still climbs on the same rake and tries to attack...and attacks. By the way, Khmelnitsky was only more circumspect and more sober than Mazepa. I realized in time that Russia would win in the end.

By the way, if we proceed from this message and the number of people killed in our country, then it doesn’t turn out very well. That’s just a battalion. And I’ll note.

Because of such provocative opinions, peace will never come. Otherwise, we need to start genocide of the Tver region, we must dare to fight with the Muscovites for our Tver.

    Once again I understand that without ideology we ourselves have nothing to give to the Ukrainians. Exchange some oligarchs and chaos for other oligarchs and the same chaos. The article started well, with thoughts about the lofty, morally beautiful, and ended not with ideals but with instincts like the winners will get women... So you understand that behind the lofty words about honor, duty and liberation, there may also be someone’s interests, and they are not always combined with these words. So in the end, what did you fight for? For a tram and a rye bun....

      Exactly . But the darkest one changed the constitution to suit himself, putting his own benefit and those articles that relate to his power at the forefront. The article about the absence of ideology in the country was left untouched. Still, Putin, just as he was a liberal from the 90s, has not changed. And if it weren’t for the war and Crimea they would have been staring into the mouths and backsides of the Angoo-Saxons. Although even now everyone is no, no, they are looking around, and what will their dear overseas partners say and think? And now only lazy people don’t talk about ideology, including such personalities as Mikhalkov and Putin’s good friend Comrade Dugin. But everything is like a wall... I think as long as Putin is in power, NOTHING will change in this regard. Just as there is no nationalization of strategic industries, personal criminal liability of government officials and managers for failure to fulfill the instructions of the Supreme Commander, and much more that separates strong hard power from practical impotence.
      Well, the Russian people are patient... Let's wait this time too. I really want to believe that Putin knows all his shortcomings and will choose his successor who lacks them. At least I really want to believe that

        The ruler always expresses the interests of the ruling class exclusively. And in our country he is the big bourgeoisie. Which - this whole epic cataclysm in the state is quite satisfactory. Because only with him can one so easily acquire capital by robbing the state and the people. So there is no need for illusions - just as she appointed Putin himself, so she will appoint his successor. Which will be the same, if not worse. You can change something for the better only by changing that same ruling class.

                        No I do not want. The age is wrong. And I don’t see any prospects for a civilized solution to this issue. The alternative - civil war or revolution - is blood, dirt, destruction and general hatred of everyone towards everyone. We’ve already passed, swam, we know. In addition, as a result, an even greater ram comes to power than was before. That’s why I think that the point of no return has been passed and we are really in trouble. And I can’t imagine how to get out of all this.

    Only in captivity do they begin to think about why there was such hopelessness in life, such toil.
    Maybe someone really thinks about this, and someone begins to “repent” and say how wrong he was in thinking that this would make his stay behind the barbed wire easier. Those former prisoners who were entrusted with weapons and given the opportunity to actually prove their position in life, I think, will be grateful to Russia for such an opportunity.

    Quote from: FoBoss_VM
    Exactly . But the darkest one changed the constitution to suit himself, putting his own benefit and those articles that relate to his power at the forefront. The article about the absence of ideology in the country was left untouched. Still, Putin, just as he was a liberal from the 90s, has not changed. And if it weren’t for the war and Crimea they would have been staring into the mouths and backsides of the Angoo-Saxons. Although even now everyone is no, no, they are looking around, and what will their dear overseas partners say and think? And now only lazy people don’t talk about ideology, including such personalities as Mikhalkov and Putin’s good friend Comrade Dugin. But everything is like a wall... I think as long as Putin is in power, NOTHING will change in this regard. Just as there is no nationalization of strategic industries, personal criminal liability of government officials and managers for failure to fulfill the instructions of the Supreme Commander, and much more that separates strong hard power from practical impotence.
    Well, the Russian people are patient... Let's wait this time too. I really want to believe that Putin knows all his shortcomings and will choose his successor who lacks them. At least I really want to believe that

    Agreeing with your opinion, I will note that it is Dugin who proposes ideology. The ideology of a monarchy without a monarch and without a dynasty. I will not highlight the pros and cons of such an ideology. I will only note that, probably, from the beginning, Putin in his old age will transfer power to his successor not from the dynasty, and he will already have the courage to finally “give birth” to a monarchy in Russia without a monarch and without a dynasty. Already now, such an ideology of Dugin simply offends Mikhalkov and co. Whether there will be a place in that ideology for boyars like Mikhalkov and Co. is a terrible unknown for this clan that declared itself counts and boyars. Under the current monarch, who has “nullified” himself, the Mikhalkov clan and Co. are accustomed to changing their shoes right in the air and on the go, since the current monarch under Yeltsin also changed their shoes right in the air, the Mikhalkov clan feels like elite boyars are our teachers, and under Putin’s successor, not from such dynasties, anything can happen, and such boyars as the Mikhalkovs and Co. may be declared impostors who know how to twist their skin according to circumstances.
    This is my personal opinion, a person who still does not understand what a monarchy without a dynasty is, but understands what kind of dynasty it is, like the dynasty of Mikhalkov and Co. By the way, Pugacheva also portrayed herself as a noblewoman and a little was not enough for her to read her sermons to us, as an elite noblewoman forming opinions for the common people....

    The battalion worked for the LBS clearly, without fanaticism, without fear. We moved into position. We quickly set up shelters and worked on the enemy with a cool head.
    Does the author serve in the active army? Or a military correspondent? Where do such details come from? or like in Schweik

    The topic of the article is very important.
    I myself wrote about this on the pages of VO.
    If, after almost two years, they were honored to send anti-fascist Ukrainians into battle, just like Ukrainians!
    Representatives of another, our Ukraine.
    This means that an understanding of how to win this war has begun to form in the Kremlin’s brains...
    Bandera's Ukraine can only be defeated by our anti-fascist Ukraine, Little Russia.

    The law on citizenship for Ukrainian volunteers and their loved ones is of course crude and, as usual, a lot will have to be finalized, but at least it’s something.
    Of course, I don’t understand the author’s pretentious religious passages, and his historical discoveries about the “failed independent statehood” of the ancestral southern Russian lands?!
    Maybe this is just a sign that the Orthodox lands have never grown together, neither with the Catholic West, nor with the Ottomans?
    And they always strived to return to their original Russian, Orthodox bosom.
    What the lands of Rus'/Ukraine are.
    The situation with Taras Bulba is not entirely clear?!
    Of course, a Russian warrior, as Nikolai Gogol made him.
    In the title, he returns with his comrades...
    And then the author thinks that he should disappear?
    Or several people wrote this without reading what the previous one wrote.
    Regarding Bogdan Zinovy ​​Khmelnitsky, his role in history, in the comments - there is so much dirt and blatant denseness ...

        Father and mother are responsible for their son...
        And we need to make sure that their life in Russia becomes much less comfortable.

    Tyagomotina with the formation of a unit of Ukrainian anti-fascists from among the prisoners is connected not even with the necessary checks, but with the incomprehensible desire of all Ukrainian military personnel to have Russian passports.

    Although it is quite obvious that a citizen of Ukraine who is fighting with the Ukrainian fascists is both medially and ideologically more beneficial to Russia.
    And from the point of view of legitimacy...
    He liberates his land, his home from the Nazis.

    Following this logic, should the Chechens return to Siberia again? And what about the fact that they are now fighting for Russia? Traitors? Opportunists. Because of such provocative opinions, peace will never come. Otherwise, we need to start genocide of the Tver region, we must dare to fight with the Muscovites for our Tver.

    I was even more modest when I brought Shevchenko, exalted as a beacon of friendship between the Russian and Ukrainian peoples, as a Russophobe in his work “Haydamaky”. There, in addition to Muscovites, Poles and Jews are also slaughtered with daring. But in the poem “Katerina” by Shevchenko, the image of Russians is already created purely as Muscovites, causing only disgust. Shevchenko gave birth and blessed the appearance of the word “Moscow”. To make it clear to you, this is a Russian child... and he is given birth to Russian “dogs”, Muscovites. All OUN members and UPA members were admirers of Shevchenko.
    As for Khmelnitsky, having received from the Polish King all the highest awards for his service and fight against the Russian Tsar on the side of Poland, he would have continued to serve the Poles, but the Polish lord took his wife away from Khmelnitsky, and the Polish King did not defend Khmelnitsky in this matter, but took the side of the Polish nobleman. And that’s it, Poland received a fierce enemy in the person of Khmelnitsky. So Khmelnitsky went to the Zaporozhye Cossacks not out of love for Little Russia and the Russians, but in order to take revenge on the Poles for his woman with the help of the Zaporozhye Sich. And the Cossacks knew that Khmelnitsky had once successfully raided the possessions of the Crimean Khan, such an ataman would also be useful against the Poles!
    But the Chechens today fighting for Russia can be compared with an army from the same Chechens of the denazified Nazi army who, out of hopelessness, surrendered and created this battalion to them. Khmelnitsky is a clear provocation...

    Such attempts had been made before him for 60 years, but were brutally suppressed by the Poles.
    And Bogdan himself waited for an answer from the Russian Tsar for more than one year...
    Units with the names of Shchors, Kovpak and even...
    Nestor Makhno.

    They, these modern Taras Bulbas and their Cossacks, must disappear from Ukrainian soil.

    I would like to remind you of Taras Bulba’s monologue before his execution:
    - Farewell, comrades! - he shouted to them from above. -Remember me and come here again next spring and have a nice walk! What did they take, the damn Poles? Do you think there is anything in the world that a Cossack would be afraid of? Wait, the time will come, the time will come, you will find out what the Orthodox Russian faith is! Even now, distant and close peoples sense: their king is rising from the Russian land, and there will be no power in the world that would not submit to him!..
    And already the fire was rising above the fire, seizing his legs and spreading flames over the tree ... But can there be such fires, torments and such a force in the world that would overpower the Russian force!

Or maybe, like Mishka Yaponchik’s regiment, they began to scatter after the first battle? They have no faith and respect from the Russian people. Even if the fighters were elderly, they clearly swore an oath to their people when they were part of the union, but having violated it, they turned their weapons against the people, and having been captured, they surrendered.

    In this regard, President Putin signed a decree on Russian citizenship for volunteers fighting in units of the Russian Armed Forces at the right time.

    A little detail about the decree for volunteers. Just half an hour or an hour ago on SolovyovTV, a real volunteer told a couple of stories. Our compatriot from Latvia came to volunteer for the front. I went to the FMS (migration service) on this issue, and they told me - this is not for us, the law is for foreign citizens, and you are not a citizen. But he is not a citizen, because in Latvia there is such a status for Russians - “non-citizen”. Then he turned to the Ministry of Defense, they helped him and signed a contract. With this contract, he returned to the Federal Migration Service, and they gave him a temporary residence permit for the period of the contract - until October. Now this compatriot of ours is scratching his turnip: what will happen after the end of the contract - will he be sent back to Latvia? And there will be prison. Trifle? A special case? Nothing like that, all the time. The fighter complains directly to Putin: he received payments after 4-5 months. It's okay - the bureaucracy is to blame. And the reaction should be this: the task for your friend is to find this bureaucrat in the Ministry of Defense and send him to the front line with payments in 4-5 months, and if he fails to cope with his duties there, fire him for lack of compliance. Again, the situation with non-citizens in the Baltics has been known for a long time: why didn’t these crappy deputies think through this issue in the Decree? Who cooked? In general, we have some kind of brutality on the part of the FMS. They accept as citizens actors, boxers, football players, Tajiks, etc., who are not belmes in Russian, but one might say they bully and bully their own people. And this has been going on for decades: I transported my mother from Moldova to Russia in 2011 - I know what I’m saying. Nothing changes

    The concepts and problems raised by the author of the article have always faced humanity. In a simplified way, their essence is expressed in well-known and always relevant questions: “What is good and what is bad?” and/or “Who is to blame and what to do?” Numerous comments to the article under discussion, most often with the exact opposite meaning, only confirm the urgent relevance of the eternal struggle of opposites, which in difficult historical periods, as a rule, sharply escalate and always lead to disastrous, social upheavals (times of troubles, creeping coups, revolutions and/or wars), which clearly indicates the imperfection of both the individual himself and the entire society.

    So far there are more questions than answers. But we still need to start substantively addressing issues of ideology. Better sooner than never. Since the majority of thinking and responsible citizens do not understand a priori how it is possible to live in a multinational state without a specific goal and/or a single unifying idea or basic principle of the state, for example, already well known and meeting the age-old aspirations of the entire people: “The Russian Federation is a single multinational state based on democratic principles of true democracy, equality and social justice.", "From each according to his ability, to each according to his work!" and/or “Each new generation should live more worthy than the previous one!” Only such approaches will allow us to build a fair, self-regulating and completely self-sufficient society in the shortest possible time. In the meantime, unfortunately, there is an ideological impasse in solving one of the main tasks of the Northern Military District - the denazification of the "Maidan" population of Ukraine...

    To be a mission state of destination
    And Ukraine here is a crown of misunderstandings.
    Arising as a paradox of creation history,
    The fire of fascism only marked the end of the agony.

    The country is split, as the “foreigners” wanted,
    The fragments do not fit together; the Maidan lies between them.
    Svidomo are raging, the cowardly are hiding in the cracks,
    Not realizing that greedy capital is to blame for everything.

    And as always, the common people remained extreme,
    The peaceful life of generations of running is again interrupted.
    And the forces of evil, having created discord among fraternal peoples,
    They cynically celebrate their diabolical success...

    https://stihi.ru/2014/04/27/2828

    “Once again I understand that without ideology we ourselves have nothing to give to the Ukrainians. Exchange some oligarchs and lawlessness for other oligarchs and the same lawlessness. The article started well, with thoughts about the high, morally beautiful, and ended not with ideals but with instincts like the winners will get women. .. So you understand that behind the lofty words about honor, duty and liberation, there may also be someone’s interests, and they are not always combined with these words. So, in the end, what did you fight for? For a tram and a rye bun... " (Commentary to the article, author turembo).

    At the same time, the centuries-old foundations, bonds and values ​​of man and civil society inevitably collapse, and people’s lives are almost completely devalued. And the worst thing about these, sometimes evolutionary processes, is that de facto the sad lessons of the past do not teach people anything and all the grave troubles are periodically repeated, even in conditions of a higher educational level of people and scientific and technological progress of society and the state. So the deep causes and roots of the main social problems and contradictions lie, first of all, in the ideological and spiritual, including religious spheres, which have a direct impact on the formation and development of the political, economic and social system of any state.

    Since childhood, we have been striving for a fair life,
    We suffer, we protest, sometimes losing faith.
    The doubts of youth lead to bitter thoughts,
    That the world is not perfect and therefore dangerous for us.

    People have not learned to correct past mistakes,
    Everything repeats itself in a circle with us every time.
    We make no attempt to stop evil vices,
    And the life experience of our ancestors is not accepted even now...

    It is indisputable that in the material world existence will always determine consciousness, at the same time, as real life irrefutably shows, a civil society without a single ideology based on the priority of generally recognized human values, first of all, on true equality and social justice, a priori cannot be united , prosperous and sustainable. Facts of the collapse of the economy and the theft of national property by unprincipled, bourgeois “elites” in plutocratic Russia and the obvious collapse and complete degradation of everything, including “independence”, in Bandera-fascist, wildly Russophobic Ukraine with the outbreak of a proxy war according to the scenario of the insidious West between "brotherly" peoples is a convincing confirmation of this.

    The twentieth century is a constellation of events,
    Known to everyone and significant to everyone.
    From a host of turmoil to cosmic discoveries,
    We went through everything in the hope of success!

    Thirty years have passed under the dominance of plutocrats,
    So brazenly plundered a great country.
    Having resigned ourselves to meanness, we tolerate adversaries,
    They insidiously imposed a hidden war on people.

    In that war it is difficult to estimate losses,
    After all, the battles were for power and capital.
    In fact, only the Judases succeeded,
    And the whole people became their pitiful slaves...

    There is no bottom to the shameful marking of time,
    A series of unfulfilled hopes sped past.
    The spirit of consumption in a special honor now
    It is time for scum and ignoramus.

    We have lost the best asset in life:
    The foundations of equality and bright justice are a dream.
    And as a result, according to their deserts, they received the following punishment:
    A nightmare of lawlessness, savagery of plunder, darkness and poverty.

    Capitalism in Russia is a vile step backwards:
    You cannot serve God and Mammon at the same time.
    The spirit of justice requires neither gold nor rewards,
    He longs to rise again with equal rights on the throne.

    “The highest and most characteristic feature of our people is a sense of justice and a thirst for it.” (F. M. Dostoevsky)

    This brief and objective statement by the famous Russian writer - a recognized expert on human souls, a sincere believer who survived a death sentence, which was replaced right before execution by a link to hard labor, aptly and truthfully reveals the deep aspirations and true, hard-fought aspirations of the Russian people for social justice, which is a priori impossible without true equality.

    Back in 1863, Dostoevsky, having analyzed the essence of capitalism in Europe and Russia, revealed the insidious meanness and vicious-false nature of the vaunted bourgeois democracy and in fact was the founder of the project of “Russian socialism”, combining the ideas of socialism with Orthodoxy and Russian Conciliarity, which in many ways has always was close to the needs of the majority of the people and is de facto in demand in modern Russia, which ultimately will only strengthen the unity and historical values ​​of the multinational and multi-confessional Russian society and state!

    No one can understand what kind of country they built,
    What we are building now is also like dawn in the fog.
    According to the Constitution, it would seem that it looks like democracy,
    In reality, the essence of plutocracy is deception...

    They are hypocritically lying to us about equality in the country,
    They broadcast for days without leaving the screen or air:
    That life has improved, but all the people are yoked,
    They just have to survive, it’s hard and offensive, they don’t care about fat...

    Russia was vilely divided into rich and poor,
    There is no end in sight to the shamelessness of the ruling “elites”.
    Where one percent is in luxury and the rest are poor,
    They are presented to us as the providences of the Heavenly Creator.

    The ideas of justice are bright and noble,
    Like the sun above the planet, they are full of warmth.
    For the purposes of equality, others are not suitable,
    Only the wisdom of compassion is sanctified by goodness.

    I believe that a good time is coming for the Fatherland,
    When the foolish people wake up from their dope,
    And wisely throwing off the heavy oppression of someone else's burden,
    Russia will gain laws of reason and justice!
