White Terror in Russia

We went to power to hang, but we had to hang in order to come to power


The stream of articles and notes about the "good Father-father", the noble white movement and the red ghouls opposing them are not impoverished. I'm not going to speak for one or the other side. Just give the facts. Just the bare facts, taken from public sources, and nothing more. Tsar Nicholas II, who renounced the throne, was arrested by 2 March 1917, General Mikhail Alekseev, the head of his staff. Tsaritsa and the family of Nicholas II were arrested on March 7 by General Lavr Kornilov, commander of the Petrograd Military Institution. Yes, yes, those very future heroes of the white movement ...

The government of Lenin, who assumed responsibility for the country in November-17, offered the Romanov family a visit to their relatives — to London, but the British royal family REFUSED them in permission to move to England.

The overthrow of the king was greeted by all of Russia. “Even close relatives of Nicholas fastened red bows to the chest,” writes historian Heinrich Joffe. Grand Duke Michael, to whom Nicholas had intended to transfer the crown, refused the throne. The Russian Orthodox Church, having committed an oath to the church on oath of allegiance, welcomed the news of the denial of the king.

Russian officer. 57% was supported by the white movement, of which 14 thousands later switched to red. 43% (75 thousand people) - immediately went for the Reds, that is, ultimately - more than half of the officers supported the Soviet power.

For the first several months after the October uprising in Petrograd and Moscow, it was not for nothing that they were called “the triumphal march of the Soviet power”. From 84 provincial and other major cities only in 15, it was established as a result of armed struggle. “At the end of November, in all the cities of the Volga region, the Urals and Siberia, the power of the Provisional Government no longer existed. She passed almost without any resistance into the hands of the Bolsheviks, everywhere Soviets were formed, ”says Major General Ivan Akulinin in his memoirs“ The Orenburg Cossack army in the fight against the Bolsheviks 1917-1920 ”. “Just at this time,” he writes further, “front-line units — shelves and batteries — arrived at the Army from the Austro-Hungarian and Caucasian fronts, but it turned out to be absolutely impossible to count on their help: they didn’t want to hear about the armed struggle against the Bolsheviks ".


Russian officers were divided in their sympathies ...


How, under such circumstances, Soviet Russia suddenly found itself in the ring of fronts? But how: from the end of February - the beginning of March 1918, the imperialist powers of both coalitions fighting in world war launched a massive armed invasion of our territory.

18 February 1918, German and Austro-Hungarian forces (around 50 divisions) launched an offensive from the Baltic to the Black Sea. For two weeks they occupied huge spaces.

3 March 1918 was signed the Brest Peace, but the Germans did not stop. Taking advantage of the agreement with the Central Council (by then already firmly established in Germany), they continued their offensive in Ukraine, March 1 overthrew the Soviet power in Kiev and moved further east and south to Kharkov, Poltava, Yekaterinoslav, Nikolaev, Kherson and Odessa .

On March 5, German troops under the command of Major General von der Goltz invaded Finland, where they soon overthrew the Finnish Soviet government. April 18 German troops invaded the Crimea, and April 30 captured Sevastopol.

By mid-June, more than 15 thousand German troops with aviation and artillery was in Transcaucasia, including 10 thousand people in Poti and 5 thousand in Tiflis (Tbilisi).

Turkish troops operated in the Caucasus from mid-February.

9 March 1918, the English landing force entered Murmansk under the pretext ... of the need to protect military warehouses from the Germans.

April 5 Japanese troops landed in Vladivostok, but under the pretext of ... protecting Japanese citizens "from banditry" in this city.

May 25 - the performance of the Czechoslovak Corps, which echelons were between Penza and Vladivostok.

It is necessary to take into account that the “whites” (generals Alekseev, Kornilov, Anton Denikin, Peter Wrangel, Admiral Alexander Kolchak), who played their part in overthrowing the tsar, repudiated the oath of the Russian Empire, but did not accept the new power, starting the struggle for their own rule in Russia.


Landing Entente in Arkhangelsk, August 1918 of the year


In the south of Russia, where "Russian liberation forces" acted mainly, the situation was veiled by the Russian form of the "White Movement". Ataman "Don troops" Peter Krasnov, when he was shown the "German orientation" and set as an example of "volunteers" Denikin, replied: "Yes, yes, gentlemen! The volunteer army is pure and infallible.

But this is me, the Don chieftain, with my dirty hands I take German shells and cartridges, wash them in the waves of the quiet Don and transfer them to the Volunteer Army in neat ways! The whole shame of this business lies with me! ”

Kolchak Alexander Vasilievich, the beloved "romantic hero" of the modern "intelligentsia." Kolchak, breaking the oath of the Russian Empire, the first on the Black Sea navy swore allegiance to the Provisional Government. Upon learning of the October Revolution, he handed the British Ambassador a request for admission to the English army. The Ambassador, after consultations with London, handed Kolchak direction to the Mesopotamian Front. On the way there, in Singapore, he was overtaken by the telegram of the Russian envoy to China, Nikolai Kudashev, who invited him to Manchuria to form Russian military units.


Killed Bolshevik


So, by August 1918, the armed forces of the RSFSR were completely or almost completely opposed by foreign troops. “It would be a mistake to think that throughout this year we fought on the fronts for the cause of the Russians hostile to the Bolsheviks. On the contrary, the Russian White Guards fought for OUR business, ”Winston Churchill wrote later.

White liberators or murderers and robbers? Doctor historical Heinrich Ioffe in the journal "Science and Life" No. 12 for 2004 - and this magazine has managed to be noted for its ardent anti-Sovietism in recent years - in an article about Denikin he writes: , robberies, terrible Jewish pogroms ... ".

About the atrocities of the troops of Kolchak are legends. The number of people killed and tortured in Kolchak dungeons did not give in to counting. Only in Yekaterinburg province, about 25 thousands of people were shot.
“In Eastern Siberia, horrible murders were committed, but they were not committed by the Bolsheviks, as I usually thought I would not be mistaken if I say,” the American general William Sydney Grevs later admitted as an eyewitness to those events, “that for every person killed by the Bolsheviks, there were 100 people, killed by anti-Bolshevik elements. "

The “ideology” of the whites in this question was clearly expressed by General Kornilov:
“We went to power to hang, but we had to hang in order to come to power” ...


Americans and Scots guard the prisoners of the Red Army in Bereznik


The "allies" of the white movement - the British, French and other Japanese - brought everything: metal, coal, bread, machinery and equipment, engines and furs. They hijacked civilian steamboats and locomotives. Until October, only Germans exported 1918 52 thousand tons of grain and fodder, 34 thousand tons of sugar, 45 million eggs, 53 thousand horses and 39 thousand cattle from October to October XNUMX. There was a large-scale looting of Russia.

And about the atrocities (no less bloody and massive - no one argues) of the Red Army and the KGB in the writings of the democratic press. This text is intended solely to dispel the illusions of those who admire the romance and nobility of the “white knights of Russia”. There was dirt, blood and suffering. War and revolution cannot bring anything else ...

"The White Terror in Russia" is the name of the book by the famous historian, doctor of historical sciences Pavel Golub. The documents and materials of stone on stone collected in it do not leave from widely circulating in the media and publications on the historical theme of fiction and myths.


There was everything: from demonstrations of the power of the interventionists to execution by the Czechs of the Red Army


We begin with the allegations of cruelty and bloodthirstiness of the Bolsheviks, who, they say, at the slightest opportunity destroyed their political opponents. In fact, the leaders of the Bolshevik Party became firmly and uncompromisingly treat them as they learned the hard way about the need for decisive measures. But at the beginning, a certain credulity and even carelessness was manifested. After all, in just four months, October triumphantly marched from one region to another in a vast country, which was made possible thanks to the support of the Soviets' power by the overwhelming majority of the people. Hence the hope that her opponents themselves are aware of the obvious. Many leaders of the counter-revolution, as is evident from the documentary materials — generals Krasnov, Vladimir Marushevsky, Vasily Boldyrev, prominent political figure Vladimir Purishkevich, ministers of the Provisional Government Alexei Nikitin, Kuzma Gvozdev, Semyon Maslov, and many others — were released on fair word, although their hostility to the new government is not in doubt.

These gentlemen violated their word by taking an active part in the armed struggle, in organizing provocations and sabotage against their people. The generosity shown in relation to the obvious enemies of the Soviet power turned into thousands and thousands of additional victims, the sufferings and torments of hundreds of thousands of people who supported the revolutionary changes. And then the leaders of the Russian communists drew the inevitable conclusions - they knew how to learn from their mistakes ...


Tomsk citizens transfer the bodies of the executed participants of the anti-Kolchak uprising


Having come to power, the Bolsheviks did not ban the activities of their political opponents. They were not arrested, allowed to publish their newspapers and magazines, hold rallies and marches, etc. The people's socialists, Social Revolutionaries and Mensheviks continued their legal activities in the bodies of the new government, starting with the local Soviets and ending with the CEC. And again, only after the transition of these parties to an open armed struggle against the new system of their faction by the decree of the CEC from June 14 of 1918, were excluded from the Soviets. But even after that, the opposition parties continued to act legally. Only those organizations or persons who were convicted of specific subversive actions were punished.


Excavations of a grave in which the victims of Kolchak's repressions are buried March 1919, Tomsk, 1920 year


As shown in the book, it was the White Guards who represented the interests of the overthrown exploiting classes who initiated the civil war. And the impetus to it, as Denikin, one of the leaders of the white movement, admitted, was a mutiny of the Czechoslovak Corps, largely caused and supported by Russia's western “friends”. Without the help of these “friends,” the white-headed leaders, and then the White Guard generals, would never have achieved serious success. And the interventionists themselves actively participated both in operations against the Red Army and in terror against the insurgent people.


Kolchak's victims in Novosibirsk, 1919 year


The “civilized” Czechoslovak punishers dealt with their “Slav brothers” with fire and bayonet, literally erasing whole villages and villages from the face of the earth. In Yeniseisk alone, for example, over 700 people were shot for sympathizing with the Bolsheviks - almost a tenth of those living there. During the suppression of the uprising of prisoners of the Aleksandrovsky transfer prison in September 1919, the Czechs shot them point-blank with machine guns and cannons. The massacre lasted three days, at the hands of the executioners about 600 people died. And there are a great many such examples.


Bolsheviks killed by the Czechs near Vladivostok


By the way, foreign interventionists actively promoted the deployment of new concentration camps on Russian territory for those who opposed the occupation or sympathized with the Bolsheviks. Concentration camps began to be created by the Provisional Government. This is an indisputable fact, which is also silent about the revealers of the Communists' bloody atrocities. When French and British troops landed in Arkhangelsk and Murmansk, one of their leaders, General Puhl, on behalf of the Allies, solemnly promised to northerners to ensure “the triumph of law and justice” on the occupied territory. However, almost immediately after these words a concentration camp was organized on the island captured by the interventionists. Here are the testimonies of those who happened to be there: “Several people died every night, and their corpses remained in the barracks until the morning. And in the morning a French sergeant appeared and maliciously inquired: “How many Bolsheviks are kaput today?”. Of the percent 50 sharpened on Mudyug, people lost their lives, many went crazy ... ”.

After the withdrawal of the Anglo-French invaders, the power in the north of Russia passed into the hands of the White Guard General Yevgeny Miller. He not only continued, but also intensified repressions and terror, trying to stop the rapidly developing process of “Bolshevization of the masses”. Their most inhuman impersonation was the exiled convict prison in Iokanga, which one of the prisoners described as “the most brutal, sophisticated method of extermination of people by a slow, painful death”. Here are excerpts from the memories of those who miraculously survived in this hell: "The dead lay on the bunk with the living, and the living were no better than the dead: dirty, covered with scabs, ragged, alive, decaying, they presented a horrible picture."


Red Army prisoner at work, Arkhangelsk, 1919 year


By the time Iokangi was freed from whites, out of a thousand and a half prisoners, there were 576 people out of which 205 could no longer move.

The system of such concentration camps, as shown in the book, was deployed in Siberia and the Far East by Admiral Kolchak - perhaps the most cruel of all the White Guard rulers. They were created both on the basis of prisons, and in those camps of prisoners of war that were built by the Provisional Government. In more than 40 concentration camps, the regime drove almost a million (914178) people who rejected the restoration of the pre-revolutionary order. About 75, thousands of people who were languishing in white Siberia, should be added to this. More than 520 of thousands of prisoners, the regime hijacked the slave, almost unpaid work in enterprises and in agriculture.

However, neither in Solzhenitsyn's “GULAG Archipelago”, nor in the writings of his followers Alexander Yakovlev, Dmitry Volkogonov and others - not a word about this monstrous archipelago. Although the same Solzhenitsyn begins his "Archipelago" from the civil war, painting the "Red Terror". A classic example of a lie by simple default!


American Bolshevik Hunters


In the anti-Soviet literature on the civil war a lot is written about the “barges of death”, which, they say, were used by the Bolsheviks to crack down on the White Guard officers. The book of Pavel Golub cites facts and documents indicating that the “barges” and “death trains” began to be actively and massively used by the White Guards. When in the autumn of the 1918 of the year on the eastern front, they began to suffer defeat from the Red Army, to Siberia, and then “barges” and “death trains” with prisoners of prison and concentration camps reached the Far East.

When the “death trains” were in Primorye, they were visited by the American Red Cross. One of them, Buekeli, wrote in his diary: “Until the moment when we found this terrible caravan in Nikolsk, 800 passengers died of starvation, dirt and disease ... I saw corpses of people whose bodies were eaten away by parasites during their lifetime, until they died after months of daily excruciating torture from hunger, dirt, and cold. I swear to God, I do not exaggerate! ... In Siberia, horror and death at every step on such a scale that they would shake the hardest heart ... ".

Horror and death — that was what the White Guard generals carried to the people who rejected the pre-revolutionary regime. And this is not a nonfiction exaggeration. Kolchak himself frankly wrote about the “vertical of command” he created: “The activity of the heads of district militias, special forces, all kinds of commandants, and heads of individual detachments is a complete crime.” It would be good to reflect on these words to those who today admire the “patriotism” and “selflessness” of the white movement, which, in contrast to the Red Army, defended the interests of “Great Russia”.


Prisoners of the Red Army in Arkhangelsk


As far as the “red terror” is concerned, its dimensions were completely incomparable with white, and it was mostly of a reciprocal nature. This was recognized even by General Grevs, commander of the 10-thousandth American corps in Siberia.

And so it was not only in Eastern Siberia. So it was all over Russia.
However, the frank confessions of the American general by no means relieve him of the guilt for participating in the massacres of the people who rejected the pre-revolutionary order. The terror against him was carried out by the joint efforts of foreign interventionists and the White armies.

There were a total of more than a million invaders in Russia — 280 thousands of Austro-German bayonets and about 850 thousands of British, American, French and Japanese. The joint attempt of the White Guard armies and their foreign allies to make Russian “Thermidor” cost the Russian people, even according to incomplete data, very expensive: about 8 millions killed, tortured in concentration camps who died from wounds, hunger and epidemics. According to experts, the material losses of the country amounted to an astronomical figure - 50 billion gold rubles ...

        There was dirt, blood and suffering. They cannot bring anything else to war and revolution ... - The most normal phrase from the whole article, in fact, the number of victims of both terrors was comparable.
        Let us recall the thousands of victims on both sides in the 888 war — which eventually came down to several hundred — and here, everyone is trying to show that the enemy is much worse than them.

        For some reason everyone forgets that by the end of World War I, Germany itself was barely making ends meet. She simply did not have so much money to actively sponsor revolutions in Russia or elsewhere. The device of revolutions is expensive. To give small assistance to certain circles is yes. Do they have more money for more? Moreover, she herself was on the verge of a revolution. And she started it before the age of 17.

        let's talk about money, imagine that you have a large family, the head of the family gives your child an uncle to give money to the street and tells him your father a mu-duck money does not know how to earn a mother and you don’t protect you all like ragged people go go to my house see how we live then you will come home banging your father and you will become the head of the family and you will live well mother and you will dress the brothers. and now the question is why you as a father didn’t find out where the child had extra money, why you let him go to your enemy’s family, how you raised him what is he smo raise a hand on you, and not only on you but on your brothers that began to protect you. WHO ARE YOU AFTER THIS

            From the book by P. Khlebnikov "Conversation with the Barbarian"
            But not a conspiracy ruined tsarist Russia. The success of the revolution was laid long before 1917. Tsarist Russia fell apart by the most elementary stupidity. The educated part of society - and by 1917 this is about a quarter of the population - stopped supporting the king. Due to a lack of understanding of historical processes, because of the instability of their patriotism, because of the vague idea of ​​what the Russian Idea is, the overwhelming majority of educated Russia began to flirt with the revolutionary idea. The intelligentsia welcomed the overthrow of the king in 1917 and received what she requested, eventually remaining in the cold. Here is a striking example of human stupidity!
            Even if the February or Bolshevik conspiracy had been uncovered, the revolution would still have been impossible to prevent. In addition, the Tsar’s Ministry of Internal Affairs knew about the Bolsheviks from the beginning of the century, and about the conspiracy of the February liberals — somewhere since 1915. But tsarist power could no longer resist the revolution. The educated people of Russia (fools) have long betrayed the monarchy, preferring a mysterious revolution to it. But when this intelligentsia was left without a homeland, then it grew wiser.
            About the same thing happened in the 1990s, during the nightmarish Yeltsin era. How did a small group of people (just a few thousand people) manage to seize the power and wealth of the country and throw the Russian people into a landfill? It doesn’t matter that there was some kind of conspiracy between these people - a lot of secret agreements, a whole chain of minor conspiracies and mafia deals. The important thing is that in Russian society there was no force ready to defend itself, ready to stand up for people's (civilian) interests. Almost no one (except for some political activists) took responsibility for what was happening. Why intervene? It is not up to them to decide ... By then, the idea of ​​civic duty was already vicious, the idea of ​​morality was forgotten, all faith in a pious feat or good deed was lost. Instead of fighting spirit, the people reigned in cowardice and despondency. Thus, the field went to predators.

        A mossy lie, thoroughly studied by many historians on the basis of documents. Even Goebbels in his Germany did not find any arguments for her that would have been useful in a propaganda war with the Soviets.
        Lenin and the Bolsheviks saved Russia from its dismemberment back in the 17-20 years of the last century by those powers that are indicated in the article.

        The German General Staff financed the Bolsheviks for the June uprising, but the October coup was financed by Yankel Schiff (an American banker) through the "comrade" Sverdlov, chairman of the Soviets of Workers 'and Soldiers' Deputies, the Soviet government left him, and Lenin became the head of government, but if on the night of the coup he didn’t run away from under house arrest and made his way to Smolny, the Soviet state would have had a completely different founder. Everything that happened to Russia in the 20th century and continues to happen, is not only a conspiracy of external enemies based on internal enemies, but also a change of elites from above and the building of a Just Society - the Kingdom of Truth. Work continues because only the Russian people can accept this Truth themselves and show the rest of the World. Because like the Third Rome ...

      This article should be read by modern "writers" who simply choke in their works, describing Kolchak's "savior of Russia", and scolding the Bolsheviks. Even in the film “Admiral” Kolchak in one of the Siberian cities meets only a small handful of industrialists and intelligentsia, which looks just gone.
      The Chairman of the Revolutionary Council of Irkutsk is much more respected, because it shows the representative of the people - the working class, who will become the master of the Big Country.

    The government of Lenin, who assumed responsibility for the country in November-17, offered the Romanov family a visit to their relatives — to London, but the British royal family REFUSED them in permission to move to England.
    Baseless statement. It is known that such an offer was made not by the Bolsheviks, but by the Provisional Government while the Romanov family was in Tsarskoye Selo.

      In the history of the civil war, not everything is as clear as it seems to the author. While part of the officer corps went over to the Reds, one of the most stable and combat-ready formations of the Kochakovo army were the Izhevsk and Votkinsk divisions, formed mainly from workers of the same plants. In the war, when a brother goes to his brother, his son goes to the father of white and fluffy does not happen. For example, except for "Quiet Don" this era is very realistically reflected in the novel: "Russia Washed With Blood" by Artem Veseliy.

        Before the Reds entered Perm, 70% of the skilled workers at the Motovilikhinsky factory left with the Whites, so history is a double-edged sword. At first the Bolsheviks won and the Whites became bad, then the Communists lost and the opposite story began.

        Neither Lenin nor his entourage gave any indication of the execution of the tsar’s family. Perhaps there was talk of eliminating the king, but not in the whole family. In those days, the new local government was more independent of the center than later and sometimes came into confrontation with it. Often under the guise of Bolsheviks, bandits came to power, with whom they subsequently had to fight. In the memoirs of Konstantin Paustovsky you can find such an episode. Also in the decisions is a roar. the tribunals can be met with such a formulation - for what they called the Bolsheviks (in particular, in the decisions of the Dragoon regiment in which Rokosovsky then served. The regiment supported the Bolsheviks and was often used to fight gangs of deserters, etc.). It is clear that they did not immediately understand who is who. By the way, the same problem was in the white movement (read Brudberg’s memoirs, for example). The shooting of the royal family, the decision of the local authorities, and the center, in order to maintain unity, had to make a good face, with a bad game. Subsequently, the main initiator of the execution was not allowed to make a career, until the end of his life, his comrades despised him, calling him a murderer. Here is another interesting fact: at the time when Baron Wrangel commanded the white movement, his mother lived in Petrograd. And she was given the opportunity to leave, if I am not mistaken, to Finland. Moreover, with the assistance of the Cheka (there is such a version, but I can’t name the source, I forgot it). I wonder why the evil Bolsheviks did not use it? It is unlikely that they had no information about her, and her conspiracy was not so hot. The widow of Veronelli, and then only when the baron became commander in chief.

          However, together with the imperial family, all relatives were simultaneously shot: brothers, uncles. aunts, nephews, etc ... i.e. the operation was large-scale and planned. It is not clear why the servants and the doctor of the royal family were shot; in my opinion, the witnesses were removed.

      Indeed, the tsar “inherited from the Provisional Government” to the Bolsheviks already in Tobolsk, which, due to the outbreak of the Civil War, temporarily pushed the fate of the tsar and his family to the background.
      Vladimir Solovyov— ... Lord Buchanan is for, and the government is not against, against is the king. George V, who said so many kind words about his friendship with Nicholas II, refused to accept him.

      Leo Anninsky— Afraid of his socialists?

      “And that too.” Now George V is accused of treason, they think that if Nicholas II took refuge in England, there would have been no Yekaterinburg execution ... Yes, you must take into account the situation then ...

      - Where? In Russia?

      - And in Russia, and in England, and in general in Europe. First, England was a military ally of the Provisional Government. Secondly, the general mood of the British was not at all so benevolent towards Russia to save the Russian autocrat. And thirdly, and this is the main thing: the mood of the Russians in the mass was just extremely radical. A huge number of grassroots organizations of various parties of the democratic wing literally bombarded the Provisional Government with letters and telegrams demanding to immediately and without any court put the king and his family at a loss ...
      - ... In May 1917, the British government wrote about the impossibility of granting the royal family asylum as a "pro-German" one. In general, the question of Britain’s refusal to provide asylum to the family of Nicholas II to date is one of the most difficult.

In addition, the Reds had a bit more time, so they tried some and planted already at a later time.

    In the Urals, in Siberia, the White Czechs committed the most atrocities. "Distinguished" and Kolchak. The closest to the population were the reds, both partisans and regular units. This was said by me both from the side of the father (ordinary Orthodox peasants) and from the side of the mother (the Old Believers). And they lived hundreds of kilometers from each other, and told almost one thing. Reds even gave out money, but more often papers with requisitions. After the Czechs and whites, even the pieces of paper were surprising humanism for the population.

      And the Czechs are a different story. Our recent allies traveled through Siberia and America to fight the Germans. After the signing of the Brest Peace, the Germans demanded that the Czechs be interned and the Bolsheviks began to impede the movement of military echelons in every way. After they threw a piece of iron out of a passing train in Chelyabinsk and defeated the Czech head, the so-called rebellion began.

      Father Tsar
      For the people, the king personified with the image of his father, and the people considered themselves his children, hence the expression of the king-father. Therefore, in Russia, the people always considered him their intercessor and sincerely believed in his kindness. And only after Ivan the Terrible and the ensuing civil war with the subsequent coming to power of the Romanovs did the attitude towards the people (serfdom) change. Therefore, the abdication of Nicholas II and the fall of tsarism in Russia was greeted with a bang everywhere. hi

        Well, it’s unlikely everywhere ... A simple analysis of the folklore of the 18-19th century allows us to speak about the incorrectness of your conclusion about the change in the attitude of the people towards the Tsar. At least for one social group - the Cossacks. The peasants, in the 18th century and the 19th, as far as I remember, continued to suffer, as Soviet historiography says, “naive infantilism” in relation to the Tsar.
        The propaganda of the revolutionaries, which had been going on openly for about 100 years by 1917, yielded effective results only in the head of the intelligentsia and secular society.

          Just the Cossacks also supported the abdication of the Tsar, the contradictions among the Cossacks by 1917 also reached a critical point (land issue). If memory serves, the same campaign of Kornilov in Petrograd failed due to the fact that the Cossacks did not support Kornilov. Their position on what was happening was expressed by the words: if the infantry does not go, then we will not move. Once again, the civil war was imposed on Russia from outside, "our" former allies in the Entente. And here both white and red took an active part. hi

That is why the Milyukovs, Guchkovs, Rodzyanki and hedgehogs with them started up the rumor of "debauchery" and German spies in power, undermining the authority of the tsar in the eyes of the common people, who so it was already low.

Nevertheless, the Kukharkins children studied at the gymnasiums and were driven out of the peasants into merchants, and from recruits to the nobility.

      I tell in a polar way for connoisseurs of Russian history: the father of our main revolutionary was a nobleman and a civilian general, therefore Ilyich was very fond of ordinary Russian people and understood their life. General Denikin’s father was a serf who served as an officer, therefore Denikin did not like the Russian people. General Krasnov has roughly the same motives.

    Most of all, it touches me that Kolchak is currently trying to return a good name by portraying him as a great scientist and researcher. Silent that he became an ordinary mercenary and a gallows of his own people, trying to become a sort of Napoleon.
    I write so hard because he distinguished himself in full.
    Although I was in school, a sign hangs there so that in 1923 or in 1924 I don’t remember exactly the headquarters of Arkady Gaidar (Golikov). Here is also a noble executioner nobler on him no less.
    The executioners and punishers with us, I don’t know, maybe in central Russia it was different that there was plenty on the part of the whites, that of the reds. After all, after the revolution, the Siberians accepted the returning white power with open arms, but they also destroyed it - for the requisite requisitions and atrocities of the white, regular parts of the Red Army there were not many along the Transib.

      Kolchak was undoubtedly a decent man! He made a huge contribution to the study of the Russian North. The Black Sea Fleet under his command gained supremacy at sea and conducted brilliant operations, unlike the Second World War. Obviously realizing his defeat, he didn’t hide abroad, but surrendered to the Bolsheviks, to the court of his people.
      Gaidar, an honest man and devoted to his country. He fought in the civilian, and then wrote honest books, which are still not a shame to read. The Patriotic War began and went to the front and died surrounded, as he taught in his books. His war in Siberia was obviously not to his liking, and was absolutely not mentioned in his books.

    Well, why are you such a respected author, now what about those people who watched the film "Kolchak" how to live on? You turned all his nobility into a turd, and at the same time the “noble” Capel and others. Right now, as they come here, all those who had candle factories, mills, stud farms (and for some reason more and more, it even creates that poverty in Russia was not there, maybe I am the only one, although I have to rummage through the archives, there must be something and I should have it)))) and they will smash you to pieces. In other matters, I always stood and stand on the position that Lenin was not, and the revolution did not happen and won out of nowhere, and who would that he didn’t tell me that they were taken to the Red Army under execution, and this and that. You can’t force warriors to fight if you don’t have anything in my head. And I didn’t believe and do not believe in sincerity and honesty in whites (of course there were PEOPLE HUMANS, but they are few, and even their sincerity and honesty are more leniency for the lower of the masses, but this is human nature) for them we were and will be cattle, which the Great Patriotic War proved, and that now they are trying to make the lamb of God, so the present gentlemen (Mikhalkov and others) need to legalize their right to you and me, although life shows that their methods are all the same, and all that the Soviet government gave l to the people, gradually goes into the anus, or rather into the hands of newly-minted bars, and the people do not have the iron end. And the fact that many say that the revolution is bad, let them try to suggest another way to change the situation, and we will see who allows it.

      Okay, do you mix Kolchak with dirt, and what did Kappel do to you? A combat general who, with a small group of soldiers, smashed the Bolsheviks, at least did not read anywhere that he had gallows in the rear. The article is not so simple. It’s not white who began to nail on their shoulders, and to kill officers simply because they are not terror, is it true? Not only white but also red are to blame for the mutual destruction. Did the red terror bring joy to the people? There are no right and wrong people in a civil war guilty. Everyone is to blame.

      I completely agree. Everything happened not from scratch. I don’t know how good or bad the Reds were at that time, but they were able to unite the destroyed country. Yes, gradually the red elite degraded into what we now have, but at that time there was nothing but Bolshevism. If not Bolshevism, then the country would have long been destroyed in pieces by Western and Eastern barbarians.

      The fears of those who think about the possibility of a recurrence of the events of the civil war are not justified. Because bloody events are characteristic only in countries with a population explosion, as in Russia of the 18th model. Russia is now in a demographic depression. Therefore, even if there is enough strength to dump a modern rotten government, then this will happen with relatively little blood. The defenders, in addition to the riot police, the current government simply does not. They either put up with it like "who if not ..." or hate it. Modern colonial power is a complete semblance of power after the February Revolution of the 17th year.

      Russia will not be able to live in conditions of a Western colonial seizure for a long time. Moreover, according to the most perverted ideological "concepts" of Milton Friedman and the Chicago School under the conditions of 100% monetarism. Russia will be able to live normally and begin to develop, only according to the traditional Russian laws and traditions, which I assume 100% sovereignty. (Russia is a self-sufficient country and can afford it) Only Russian traditions suggest a reduction in the degree of tension in society, sometimes, of course, by surgical methods. The West, on the contrary, always tensions both at home and in its colonies, which, in my opinion, we all feel for ourselves

      Nicholas II could not cope with a decrease in the degree of tension in society, but rather went according to Western traditions, escalating the situation until the First World War. (For example, by admitting commoner Rasputin to the tsar’s court, he lost, in modern terms, a confidence rating) The Russian elite has grown strongly together with the West at the time, which is happening now and to an even greater extent. The consequences were sad for him and the country.

        That's the thing, dear, that it’s not at all ... It is naive to think that almost 100 years ago our ancestors tore apart each other from the nefig. Apparently, there were good reasons ... The vast majority preferred armed struggle to their bestial position, and the minority no less vehemently defended their privileged position. What is the worst, we are now moving towards that. In the next couple of years, Russia will definitely be embroiled in some sort of mess like the 1st World War, which was the catalyst of 1917. The Bolsheviks can be treated differently, but in one they are certainly right: big money and power change a person more than a neglected form of schizophrenia. And Russia was delivered from this "schizophrenia". But, as we see, it didn’t last long ...

At the same time, it was important not only to destroy Russia as a state, but, given the time-tested disobedience of the Russian people, the inability to subordinate it to the will of foreigners, to democratize, the West planned to massively destroy the RUSSIAN people, its gene pool, and deliver such a blow to the Russian nation that it couldn’t already to recover and do all this with the hands of the Russians themselves through unleashing a civil war in which they took an active part and helped to pour as much RUSSIAN blood and "white and red terror" as possible Meets these cannibalistic plans!

Russia has signed a separate peace with Germany and is obliged to pay a huge indemnity (100 tons of gold were sent almost a bit, you have to pay for help in the revolution), and all this good would go to the German comrades to continue the war! Who benefits from this? We betrayed our allies, and I think the attitude towards the traitors is the same everywhere.

    “The war undoubtedly created the most severe crisis and aggravated the calamities of the masses incredibly. The reactionary nature of this war, the shameless lies of the bourgeoisie of all countries, covering up their predatory goals with a“ national ”ideology — all this inevitably creates revolutionary sentiments among the masses on the basis of an objective revolutionary situation. “Our duty is to help to realize these moods, to deepen and formalize them.” This task is correctly expressed only by the slogan of turning the imperialist war into a civil war, and any consistently class struggle during the scope of war, any seriously pursued tactics of mass action inevitably leads to this.

The fundamental works describing that time were not yet presented, and did not even hear about projects. So as not to prejudice everything like that, I haven’t seen it yet. Everything is either in color in Red or in color White.

    Specifically, this article is more in Red.

    Yes there were no saints there either on either side. And with respect to the neutral civilian population, both of them were noted far from charity. The Reds shot two of my great-grandfathers during the "dispossession", although they were not even fists. The third escaped with confiscation of property.
    And one more great-grandfather - on the maternal side - either the head of the Tomsk diocese, or his deputy (I don’t understand church posts) was also shot during the fight against "opium for the people."
    So it was unlikely that these were “retaliatory measures” against the atrocities of the “whites”.

    Article minus. Author, but if (God forbid, of course) a coup begins in the country, an hour later representatives of the new government will come to you and ask who you are? Who do you swear to? The new government, or to whom? Is the choice obvious? You swear allegiance to the new government, and tomorrow it will not be, the old government will sweep away the "rebels" into oblivion. Then the old government will recall to man his renunciation and vice versa. Everyone had families and swearing a new power or not, the question was difficult and the choice always had an unpredictable result like even odd. Civil war is always scary, and both are good. It is not known who was guided by oaths of white, red, tsar, tsar, interventionists and no one will tell the truth why he went to these or these. Maybe he wanted to keep his family alive and therefore swore allegiance ?! Or maybe looting ?!

    Atrocities have always been in all wars since the beginning of the annals. Well, in such a situation as GV, you yourself judge the country raped, the war is incomprehensible for what with your own, everywhere hunger, eating, no ammunition / not enough, fighting for a mythical bright future, risking your life, and here some peasant does not want to give the cow to the fighters for a "bright future", he also sympathizes with the opposing side, all this angered the fighters of all military-political movements, hence it follows that in such terrible conditions, people instantly satanized doing the most unthinkable things from a human point of view.

    And the moral is this! That all political movements during wars put ordinary people in an awkward position of choice, which can then have fatal consequences for the whole family! A bunch of examples!

        And in no way positively negatively. There is already no country what to do? Here, I personally think so (maybe I'm wrong) to remain either in neutrality, or if the state system is comfortable taking the oath to him. But here's how to look. They tried to save the USSR, the past cannot be returned, and life goes on. There is no USSR and the oath has lost its meaning. The main thing is in the soul, to whom, what you swore. An oath of conscience, honor, love for one’s country is the best oath. And it doesn’t matter what banners you stand under if your cause is right. Swear to creation for the good of the country, not destruction.

    In no case should this be allowed. A historical assessment must be given an obligatory assessment; otherwise, these millions died in vain, and the country did not learn this history lesson without drawing the proper conclusions.

    In Soviet times, an assessment of those events was not given truthfully - as a result, the story of the revolution was repeated in 1991, somewhat camouflaged. There were no more victims from this. How many Russians perished in the newly independent national republics and how many perished in national conflicts in Russia itself, there is still no exact figure. The Russian people again walked with a bloody whip.

    Quote: bya965
    Our people remembered this terrible lesson and 1991 did not allow a new civic.

    I do not remember. There was simply no prerequisite for a split in the Russian population, but on an ethnic basis it was more profitable to split, which happened. The result is on the political map of the world around the Russian Federation.

    Quote: Standard Oil
    different people killed, no doubt, but you don’t want to say that whites fed everyone ice cream, stroked their heads and let go

    Of course, I do not want to say such obvious rubbish, but the events MUST receive an unbiased assessment. I will explain why:
    1. At the moment, society is split. This can be seen with the naked eye. There are people for the revival of the Soviet project, there are people for the revival of the imperial project (in the pre-revolutionary format), there are people for the development and modernization of the capitalist project. Moreover, each of these areas has a solid electoral base. At the same time, they cannot agree and the organic interact in view of the existing mutual claims, which ultimately weakens Russia as a state in different directions. Only a true appraisal of events can unite and reconcile them - otherwise one of these parties goes into opposition.
    2. The new generation needs to be educated on a sober perception of reality, so that in the future it does not make mistakes that will destroy our country.

    3. As one of the steps towards solving this problem - writing a single balanced history textbook. I am for it with both hands.


    To make it clearer about what - examples:

    How do Tatars take Kazan capture day? How aggression Russian? How is the intervention?
    How do Chechens perceive the inclusion of the territory of their republic in the Russian Empire? How is genocide?

    And these are very urgent questions, because even today against the background of these questions blood is pouring.

    Ideally, on the territory of ALL of Russia there should be a single interpretation of history and a single ideology that does not exist. The country has no vector. Now it is clear that the country is recovering, the country's energy is accumulating. The task of the Government is to set this vector so that the kinetic energy of the country is spent on benefits, rather than go off the horn.

They find all the dirt under the Soviet system, tear off their covers ... and at the same time when they wear the Oktobernik badges with Lenin, they read about Stalin's respectful attitude towards Lenin, and yet they turn over the komunyak and cover it with the last words. if everything is bad then burn cr snyh. if good, this is our MOTHERLAND!

And in Russian history this has happened more than once - Peter the Third alone was worth what.

It was he who was the first sovereign from the Gottorp dynasty (as they called themselves).

        From the book by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Reflections on the February Revolution.
        The Russian government in February of the seventeenth did not show
        not a thin muscle for children, it behaved weaker than a mouse. February
        the revolution was lost on the part of the authorities even before the start of the revolution itself.
        There was also a bruise in the Fifth Year, miserable on January 9th. Sovereign never
        I could not forgive myself for that unfortunate bloodshed. Most of all now he
        he feared to use military force against his people before and more than need.
        Yes, even during the war! - and shed blood on the streets! ...
        But take care so much
        the many-sided son Nicholas pushed the monarchy to fall.
        And he didn’t have the right to transfer the throne to Mikhail, without ascertaining his
        consent.
        And above state laws: all the more, he did not have the right to renounce
        at the time of great national danger.
        And even higher: all his life he understood his reign as an anointing of God
        and he himself could not lay him off, but only death.
        It is precisely because the will of the monarch that subjects must fulfill
        Unquestioningly - the monarch’s responsibility has been increased a million times over
        with any ordinary person. This country was entrusted to him - a heritage,
        tradition and God - and that's why he is responsible for the revolution that happened
        most.
        On these first days of March, his main impulse was - family! - wife!
        a son! Good family man, did it occur to him to think about millions more
        people, also family, connected with him by their oath, and millions,
        indiscriminately affirmed on the monarchical idea?

    Kolchak in vain pouring mud. It was a war, and atrocities in peacetime are enough ... And a lot of outright lies in the article. Somehow:
    Kolchak, breaking the oath of the Russian Empire, was the first in the Black Sea Fleet to swear allegiance to the Provisional Government.

    There was no such thing.
    From the records of Kolchak:
    The team and the population asked me to send a greeting on behalf of the Black Sea Fleet to the new government, which I fulfilled.

    —A.V. Kolchak. March 6, 1917


    The letter spoke precisely of the GREETINGS of the Provisional Government and of the hope of the continuation of hostilities in the war with the Germans, and there could be no talk of any ingratiating tone. The letter was written only to prevent bloodshed at the beginning.

    Further. The author writes about allegedly close relations with the French, British and others. Absolute nonsense. You would have thought, if such a relationship really had a place to be, then as if the admiral would have remained practically alone, betrayed by all, captured by decision of General Zhanen by the forces of the Czechoslovak Corps ...

    Head of the Irkutsk Communists A.A. Shiryamov (chairman of the committee that signed the regulation on the shooting of the admiral) about the reasons for Kolchak’s extradition:

    Without power, Kolchak was of no value to the Allies or the Czechs; in his personal qualities, direct and harsh, trying to defend the "sovereignty of the Russian government" from the claims of the Allies, he has long been in sharp conflict with the Allies, and even more so with the Czechs.


    The whole reason for the temporary support of the Allies was a thirst for profit: everyone hoped to seize the gold reserves (part of it, small) that Kolchak had recaptured from the Bolsheviks. The admiral understood all this very well, and somehow he said: “I would rather leave gold to the Bolsheviks than give it to my allies”, in principle, predetermined his fate. most needed them, in exchange for the independence of Finland, which the admiral sharply rejected.

    Even in the press of the times of the USSR, Kolchak was presented as a true patriot

    if White didn’t have popular support, Kolchak would also be unable to gather a huge army and conquer half of Russia. I’m sure that the Lenin case was actively financed from behind the hill, in the end, the reward announced by Lenin for Kolchak’s head of $ 7 million says a lot

    Read Melgunov's book Red Terror in Russia
    My strong conviction is that in the Civil War, the winner is the one who spills more blood and does not stop at any victims. The Reds ended up being more ruthless than the White. And besides, they could present (at least in words) a clear goal of the struggle, understandable to both the peasant and the worker. Therefore they won

      No, of course, but the groups you have listed have nothing to do with liberalism.

    Glad you dear Yarosvet will exchange thoughts!
    But tell me please, where did the liberals come from in the USSR, we were not attacked in 1985, 1989 or 1991 by enemy armies and military equipment.
    We all lost just because it was usual for the sake of money the betrayal of the highest power, and all without exception, party workers and the KGB, had in your pocket like us ordinary communists, the exact same PARTY TICKET.
    Maybe we didn’t understand each other, or we have different thoughts, but for me, these are ALL people from the history of the 80-90s and today (2000-2013) CHANGES OF THE MOTHERLAND, they are NOT liberals. angry
    And I do not consider liberals to be both "soft and aloof to the West comrade DAM" and our pride in the whole world of the "unbending iron comrade VVP". For me, they are just traitors! fool

      And where does the attack? Liberalism is just a system of values ​​that justifies the need for freedom of decision-making and action within the framework of a law that suits the majority, with full personal responsibility for these decisions and actions. Value systems originate within social groups as a reaction to any aspects of the social environment in which these groups are located. In addition, the Russian empire itself was inherently neoliberal, as a result of which the presence of certain revanchist sentiments was quite natural.

      We all lost just because it was usual for the sake of money the betrayal of the highest power, and all without exception, party workers and the KGB, [u] had in our pocket [/ u] just like ordinary communists, [u] exactly the same PARTY TICKET. [/ u]
      I’m not sure that the concept of “betrayal” is appropriate, but the fact that the usurpation of power and public property has taken place is a fact.

      Maybe we didn’t understand each other, or we have different thoughts, but for me, these are ALL people from the history of the 80-90s and today (2000-2013) CHANGES OF THE MOTHERLAND, they are NOT liberals.
      So they are not liberals - they are neoliberals, because they adhere to the value system of one of the forms of fascism.

      And I do not consider liberals to be both "soft and aloof to the West comrade DAM" and our pride in the whole world of the "unbending iron comrade VVP". For me, they are just traitors!
      I will be very glad if it later turns out that I am in relation to the first persons (Comrade VVP and DAM), now I was mistaken and wrong! But while this seems to me very unlikely.

    Father Tsar
    For the people, the king personified with the image of his father, and the people considered themselves his children, hence the expression of the king-father. Therefore, in Russia, the people always considered him their intercessor and sincerely believed in his kindness. And only after Ivan the Terrible and the ensuing civil war with the subsequent coming to power of the Romanovs did the attitude towards the people (serfdom) change. Therefore, the abdication of Nicholas II and the fall of tsarism in Russia was greeted with a bang everywhere. hi

    Well, if you like to go under the master who eats and goes to paradise on your hump, so get a job somewhere in Rublevka, and let the newly-born bourgeois be both your father and mother!

    Maybe you’ll go to him every day and persuade him?
    And then your children and grandchildren - grandchildren will walk? Do you agree to this option?

    All of the above is done calmly - a decision is made and work begins on its implementation.
    Another thing is that those who disagree with this decision begin to shoot and scream that they are "plundered" ...

    Good day to all! I apologize I write again right now, instead of the "error" lost with greetings (from 17: 59 / CET).
    From the cited notes, I liked the calm wording of the question at "GUR-a". Regarding the answers to his question, I personally join "kanevsvv-u."
    His direct and without excessive intelligence, the answer seems to me the only possible it’s just that we’ll think about it for 2-4 years.
    But when the patience of the people bursts, to give back and tighten their belts, ordinary citizens will have nowhere to go, and then the thunder will probably strike. am
    Now many of us are still afraid for yourself, life, family, acquired ...
    But in the near future, when in the first ranks of dissatisfied tens of thousands of people who have lost everything but their lives, neither their batons, nor shots from police trunks in the face - they will not intimidate! hi
    But then it will be too late to organize, discuss, believe in repeated promises and decrees ... fool
    At a time you are quickly flowing away. Probably all the same, from the words we should slowly move on to the point.
    I mean not a "call for the overthrow of power," а the formation of a broad civil REQUIREMENTS to the authorities (not petition) that It is NECESSARY to solve the problems of the country and the people, а not zagr. and home oligarchs, their creators and defenders in the Kremlin and on the Lubyanka.

    The Reds won and this is a historical fact. Without the support of the majority, the population would not have won. The most important thing, just then many understood that if White won, then there would be no country like Russia on the map. Yesterday's white allies will tear it to pieces. When did the British or the Yankees abandon the "badly lying" regions with resources? Do you think that the white invaders defeat calmly removed their troops from Russian territory? And would they be satisfied with the new Russian government only by repaying debts for weapons and ammunition? At that time, there was only one independent political force in the country, which could create and created a new independent state - these are the Bolsheviks. It seems to me that many Russian officers thought, moving to the Bolsheviks - the main thing is to serve Russia, and under what flag it is not so important.

    The civil war is terrible from any direction - even with the red, even with the white.
    The invasion of foreign troops, the rebellion of the whites and the financing of whites from abroad - this is no longer brother to brother, it is an attempt to destroy the state (it does not matter the Russian Empire or the Soviet ...) by military force.
    The article is a plus.
