The USA, the West as a whole openly express discontent with the independent policy of Russia. They are also threatening to keep it in the semi-colonial grip of 90, declaring the native Russian geopolitical space as a zone of their interests, and have turned to the strategy of surrounding Russia with military bases. The information-ideological base created by means of external special information-ideological influences on the population of Russia is brought under all these actions.
One of the main directions in the destruction of Russian national identity is precisely the external special informational and ideological influences in the militaryhistorical, patriotic spheres. In this "constructive" work, the United States uses the concept of "democracy" so intensely that it has lost its original content and has become a basic element of the political technology used by the United States throughout the world, including against Russia.
At the heart of self-awareness
On 65, the anniversary of the opening of the second front, US President Barack Obama said that it was the allies who defeated fascism, and did not say a word about their role in the victory of the USSR. But the contribution of the Allies to the victory was too different. The Soviet people, its Armed Forces in 1941 – 1945 defeated 600 German divisions, and the Anglo-American troops 176. On the Soviet-German front, Germany lost 72 percent of servicemen and 75 percent of equipment, so the main contribution to the victory was made by the Soviet people and its Armed Forces.
The more silent are the subjects of external special informational and ideological influences of these figures, the more often they need to be resurrected in the people's memory. Indeed, young generations know about the Great Patriotic War through books, films, television programs, newspapers, magazines, which are published now and sometimes, capturing the political situation, present the history of our victory in the same way as foreign subjects of special information and ideological influences. What to oppose this? Education of young Russians on the basis of the ideology of patriotism, service to the Fatherland.
Germany won half the world, and could have won the whole, if not the Russian national character, the basis of which is a non-aggressive, sacrificial feeling. It is easier for a Russian to die for his country, people, than to see their reproach. Russians are sometimes venerated by saints precisely for the sacredness of self-sacrifice, which forms the basis of Russian self-consciousness, for the uncompromising determination to stand for the truth, not for life, but for death. This is the mainland of Russian ideology. The Germans are good mathematicians, they calculated everything, everything seemed to be taken into account. All but one: they underestimated the mainland of Russian ideology. And they would have had one end, even if they took Moscow, crossed the Volga. From this, the conclusions were made by the United States, which, by manipulating history, tries to not repeat this fatal miscalculation for the Germans.
Modern external special informational and ideological influences are used precisely for this purpose.
Subjects of external special information and ideological influences use certain methods. First of all, this is an ideologized, biased, dismissive treatment of facts, documents, that is, a violation of the rules of scientific and historical research. “New reading” of the history of Russia as a whole and the Great Patriotic War of 1941 – 1945 in particular is systematically and persistently imposed. Using this source, the authenticity of which is not confirmed, or false documents.
Specially created myths are being introduced into the public consciousness, for example, that the NKVD and the Gestapo collaborated in the fight against world Jewry before World War II, published fakes that were issued as secret documents, which are still hidden by archives.
New concepts are introduced into common vocabulary without proper scientific justification. For example, the “Battle of Rzhev” to refer to the battles of 1942 – 1943, which were waged by the troops of the Western and Kalinin fronts against the German army group “Center”. These battles are equated to the Moscow and Stalingrad battles without controversy at the military-theoretical level, where the concepts of “battle”, “battle”, “battle” are invested with certain content. This is done specifically in order to shape the image of the Rzhev meat grinder in the minds of Russians as a symbol of the mediocrity of the Soviet command, its disregard for the lives of soldiers.
The logical structures of the external special informational and ideological influences include separate events, personalities. Thus, General Vlasov, from a traitor, is made one of the leading figures in Russian history in the 20th century, who allegedly used the Germans in the struggle against Stalinism - the worst yoke in all of Russian history. Historical personalities are credited with intentions, which they then pass off as facts and build causal relationships on their basis. For example, they say that the Soviet leadership intended to unleash World War II in order to kindle a revolutionary fire in Europe, prepare an attack on Germany, and crush capitalism by military means. At the end of his presidential term, Viktor Yushchenko awarded Stepan Bandera - the symbol of the infinite, on the blood of nationalism - the title of Hero of Ukraine.
The main attention in the external special information and ideological influences is still paid to Stalin. This technique is designed to, to vilify it, to blacken the entire national history of the Soviet period and thereby deprive us of pride in the Great Victory, our great achievements, which brought the country into world leaders. But as sociological studies show, the more they criticize Stalin, the greater the percentage of those for whom he was and remains a great leader who saved Russia from destruction. He is not a saint, he had the right, like all people, like Western leaders, to make mistakes. But Stalin corrected the mistakes, leading the country to victory. In our country, his role in history will be assessed both by mistakes and by merit before the Fatherland. Generations of Russians will figure out what he is to blame, and what deserves thanks. We need to analyze Stalin as a person, as one of the leaders of Russia, not only in black or white, but in the whole range of colors, in order to understand him, our mistakes and achievements, and try not to repeat what may harm us. Throwing the name of Stalin from history, no matter how anyone would like, is impossible. It is from this that we must proceed.
Symbols of social memory are undermined. For logical constructions of external special informational and ideological influences, for example, they use Nikolai Gastello, Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, 28 Panfilov heroes, Alexander Matrosov. Omitting the facts, they cast doubt on the events in their lives. Build assumptions that tend to persuade an audience that does not have the information in full. We honor these names, because they have embodied the feat of the entire Soviet people. To erase these names from memory means to erase the notion of high and low, the memory of one’s own feat, one’s victory, the spiritual core.
Logical structures in external special informational and ideological influences are built in such a way as to create a negative view of the positive facts of Soviet history. So, a series of special informational and ideological influences about the atrocities of the Red Army in defeated Germany as a consequence of Stalin's totalitarianism, maimed people's souls, and Asian barbarism are used. During any wars committed murder, robbery, violence against women. Soviet archival documents show how severely they were punished for this in the Red Army. But after all, violence was the answer of those whose houses were destroyed, their wives were raped, children were killed, family members were looted.
It is possible to compare the cruelty of the Soviet and German armies by means of numbers. Not the Red Army destroyed the 28 of millions of Germans, but the German Army destroyed the 28 of millions of Soviet citizens. Add to this figure another six million victims of the Holocaust, and everything will be clear with the level of cruelty of the German army and the Red Army. To this could be added colossal figures on the destruction of Soviet material and cultural values, cities, villages. It was the extermination of a part of world civilization. Why do subjects of external informational and ideological influences hold back the fact that the Nuremberg process defined the level of cruelty of the German army as genocide?
In the West, in the USA, many and systematically pay attention to the Holocaust — the murder by the Germans of six million Jews. Yes, it is a global tragedy. There can be no forgiveness for this, even beyond many years. But if the destruction of six million people is a universal tragedy, what is the destruction of the 28 of millions of Soviet citizens? Why no one in the world condemns it at least the same as the Holocaust? Are there any unofficial geopolitical quotations of people's lives based on their nationality? Indeed, among the millions of Soviet citizens destroyed by the Germans 28 were Jews. We must pay tribute to the leadership and the people of Israel, who, despite the ideologists of NATO, the United States declares that the Red Army saved mankind from being enslaved by Nazi Germany.
The United States, Europe are silent about the crimes of the US military against civilians in defeated Germany. The facts recreate a horrifying picture of the orgy of violence that has swept across the American occupation zone of Germany. In the West, the “Forbidden for publication” stamp is superimposed on archives indicating that, for example, the Americans in their area of occupation of Germany starved a million German prisoners.
In particular, this is evidenced by the French captain Joseph Julien, in August 1945, who worked in West Germany as a member of a special commission, the writer from Canada, James Buck, in his book Other Loss, the official biographer of the Commander-in-Chief of the US Eisenhower, Stephen Ambrose Albert Coudry. German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer raised a question in the US State Department: what happened to the 1,5 of the million German prisoners who did not return home? The letter of the head of the Red Cross, Max Hubert, to the commander-in-chief of the US troops, Eisenhower, has been kept In it, Hubert asks permission to bring canned food to a prisoner of war camp. Eisenhower answered: "You are forbidden to transfer food to enemies." According to the book of James Buck, "Other losses" in American captivity in six months they buried as many Germans as in Soviet captivity in eight years.
Carefully hiding these and other facts, Western subjects of special informational and ideological influences on Russian society accuse Soviet servicemen of cruelty, teach morality and democracy, although the Americans behaved in Germany with prisoners and civilians far worse. Thus, the new generations of Russians are trying to work out a complex of guilt, inferiority, repentance for what is to blame for those who are imposed on them as teachers of morality and democracy.
On the basis of the “bitter truth”, modern Russophobic ideologues draw conclusions that are necessary for the subjects of external special information and ideological influences on the foreign and Russian public. Statements about the “unpredictability of the Russian past” should convince Russians that Russia has no past at all, and thus deprive them of their historical memory. French President Mitterrand said: "A people who do not study their history is a people who lose their identity."
