During the election of the mayor of the capital, candidates voiced provocative statements regarding both migrants and residents of the North Caucasus. In your opinion, how can this affect the position of the federal center in the North Caucasus, especially if you take into account the situation in Dagestan and the fact that the Sochi Olympiad is approaching, implying stability in this region? As a result, the situation will unfold and what is behind such statements?
Behind such statements is the complete failure of the three Kremlin politicians - national, Caucasian and migration (which are inevitably mixed in people's minds), which is reflected in the absolute anti-Russian nature of the three basic documents: the Concept of State Migration Policy, approved last June, the State National Strategy approved in December last year and the North Caucasus Development Strategy together with the state program, which were approved in the last three years.
They all come from false and directly subversive premises.
If we take migration policy, then it is argued that the more migration (including internal so-called “mobility”), the better for the country's economy and demography, although everything is just the opposite: migration kills both demography and the economy.
The strategy of the national policy relies on politicized national minorities, who are allegedly persecuted and humiliated by the rest (who are these others?) And thus in fact denies the importance of the Russians as the state-forming people, essentially canceling them.
And the development strategy of the North Caucasus is based on the idea that there are not enough jobs in the North Caucasus, which seems to be correct, but does not specify in any way exactly which jobs and where they can come from - the problem is not in abstract jobs, but that There are no people who are able to organize full-fledged production, give people honestly earn.
And whatever one may say, one must admit that both the current head of Dagestan and the head of Ingushetia have recognized in their statements that without the Russians in the North Caucasus there will be no decent jobs (ILO term).
Therefore, taking into account these three documents, it is obvious that the money will end up not only spent in vain, but will also become an investment from the state apparatus in the destabilization of the state, Russia.
Together, these three politicians lead the country to disaster.
And it doesn’t matter at the same time who will make the most negative contribution: network ethnocrime - or frostbitten, so-called “Russian nationalists”, designed to depict the “Russian fascism” invented by Surkov (otherwise how can we explain the incomprehensible protection of national minorities?); chaotic migration flows - or fighters with migration; the Caucasians are rapidly settling (and now also with the help of the state) in the regions - or the indigenous people who are outraged by their unexpected concentration in their villages and cities.
Here are the current elections in Moscow. The main candidates are campaigning on the anti-migrant theme (as if the migrants suddenly “came in” a week before the elections), thereby rocking the boat, since selfish interests in the absence of the ability to pose and solve fundamental problems always aggravate and eventually explode the situation.
To the question of Russian. Over the past few years, different versions of how Russian cadres can be returned to the North Caucasus appear in the expert community. Perhaps the accession of the Stavropol Territory to the NCFD partly came from this concept of return. But it has not yet led to anything constructive. Is it possible in the conditions of current realities to return the Russian population to the North Caucasus?
Not just possible, but vital. And this is done very simply: firstly, the status and possibilities of the Stavropol Territory must be radically raised, it must be made a bridgehead for all of the great Caucasian politics, and, secondly, the federal government should demand from the Russians that they should implement what was said in Putin’s electoral articles and decrees .
The return of the Russians should mean the solution of three state tasks: the first is the new industrialization. Give Russians the opportunity not to work for the oligarchs and serve the shadow financial flows, but to build factories and new industry, and they will come to the North Caucasus, as well as to dozens of other "dead" regions.
Let the Russians build the Eurasian Union, and they will start flying to Baku, Tbilisi, Yerevan, and Iran, and will begin to pull up the North Caucasus. Let the best young people raise their regions through a comprehensive urban planning and industrial policy, and the Russians will come to raise the North Caucasus not by fantasizing about resorts, but by solving real problems.
It is necessary to stop building a false Caucasian policy. Let the Russians do what Putin says. But so far no one is simply giving, but also actively provoking and drawing communal opposition into the grassroots.
If we take into account that Caucasusophobia is very well developed among the Russian population, and Caucasian society does not always simply relate to the Russian population (as a result of past Chechen campaigns), take into account that in Dagestan the prewar period, in Chechnya, there is a surge of radical Islam among young people, as in these is a dialogue possible?
Power at all levels just has to act with justice.
Want to know how in five minutes to drastically improve the whole situation around the North Caucasus?
All that is needed is Ramzan Akhmatovich Kadyrov, Head of the Chechen Republic, to treat justicefully Russian officer Lieutenant Sergey Arakcheyev, who was sentenced to 15 years (and six years already in prison!) By a third court, although before that he was twice acquitted by jury trials.
The situation here is that when two years ago I began asking high-ranking officials how to help Lieutenant Arakcheev, I might further understand the matter and reconsider the court’s decision, then strangely enough, everyone, as if by agreement, began to explain that in vain I took up this matter, that it was “rotten,” because, they say, “Kadyrov will be against, and no one wants to mess with him.”
I admit that this is probably some kind of fantasy of individual officials, their desire to dump from a sick head on a healthy one, etc. Therefore, in August last year, I wrote an open letter to Kadyrov, in which I indicated that there was an obvious injustice here, because Arakcheev twice justified, and after that there were public statements by Ramzan Akhmatovich that the decisions of the jury did not reflect the will of the Chechen people.
The Arakcheev case is essentially political, it shows a careful analysis of the case, and last year Arakcheev even passed a polygraph test - a “lie detector”. It is significant that before the third court, Lieutenant Arakcheev had the opportunity to hide, hide, but he deliberately did not do this, believing in the justice of the state and not wanting to give reason for suspicion that he was still to blame.
So let's fix the situation, I suggested to Kadyrov, speak in favor of Lieutenant Arakcheev, not replacing the court, for carefully re-examining the decision of the court in higher instances. Then everyone will understand that you not only do not keep Arakcheev as if in a zindan, but, on the contrary, you are for Russian officers and Russia ...
Unfortunately, a year has passed, and Kadyrov is silent.
And if he stood up for justice, in the country at once very much would have changed for the better, what kind of “Caucasus-phobia” would there be? Everyone would understand that Ramzan Kadyrov, who is credited with saying that he made Arakcheev hostage to his wrath and Chechen populism, is in fact, quite the contrary, a wise Russian statesman.
In that letter, I noted that demonstrating Kadyrov’s fair attitude towards Arakcheev is a radical and health-improving way of changing attitudes towards Caucasians. And then again in his blog on Ekho Moskvy he explained the life-giving meaning of Kadyrov’s public statement in favor of Arakcheev. This is a specific question, not abstract political slogans.
However, I repeat, a year has passed, but no answer has been received. That's the whole point.
There is a conspiracy theory that some forces cover up their decisions with other political figures.
I suggested that Kadyrov is simply covering up, but Kadyrov does not want to refute the accusations against him. I suggested that the Head of the Chechen Republic speak in favor of being attentive to the clearly unfair situation with the former comrade, Lieutenant Sergey Arakcheyev. But he is silent and, thus, makes us think, or maybe these nods are right at Kadyrov in the Moscow corridors of power?
But then the attitude will be appropriate.
It turns out that in the perception of people from the Russian government corridors, Kadyrov and Chechnya as a whole appear to be a terrible force that it is better not to anger, otherwise everything will be demolished?
Whatever it was, but in the end it turns out the game with only one goal. The federal center initiates many programs in order to improve life in Chechnya, and Ramzan Kadyrov, whose performance with regard to support for Arkacheyev could change a lot, does not take the slightest step forward towards his support.
This is a matter of justice. Three years ago, at the Krasnoyarsk forum, the plenipotentiary Khloponin said that in the North Caucasus it’s not about workplaces, but that there is no justice. And he is right! And not only in relation to the Caucasus.
But on the scale of the whole North Caucasus and in a narrower sense - the lack of justice today in a concentrated form is expressed in the absence of justice to Lieutenant Arakcheev.
And if you take the latest situation in the city of Pugachev? Can it also be considered in the framework of justice and injustice?
A tragedy occurred, and right from the start, the plenipotentiary representative of the Head of Chechnya in the Volga Federal District immediately intervened.
As for the Chechen teenager, whom everyone blamed for, which in itself, to put it mildly, does not add respect, Kadyrov immediately spoke out in his condemnation.
And who spoke about the affected family from the state?
The state — the presidential plenipotentiary Babich, the governor of the Saratov region, the prosecutor, the police — rushed into Pugachev to explain to his heartbroken mother that they didn’t need to stir up ethnic strife. The question arises - the son is killed, and the entire vertical of power is directed against the mother so that she does not say too much, despite the fact that even in condemnation, the head of Chechnya and his envoy paid attention to the accused teenager.
It turns out that the state is not working on an impartial investigation and restoring order, but against victims. The state of our country is dangerous mother of a twenty-year-old boy killed, and not a gang of thugs who turned out to be Chechens.
This is true?
Where do you think the sources of this injustice come from? And how long can this go on? After all, the “one gate” policy gives rise to a serious protest wave in the regions of Russia, which has the character of a nationalist one?
It began with a model that Surkov designed thirteen years ago.
It consists of two parts. First: the artificial elevation of national minorities and the creation of an artificial so-called. "Russian nationalism" that can scare everyone. The task is that the neoliberal operational model, which was created in the country, is exclusively an export option and is absolutely not consistent with any millennial stories Russia, nor the way of mutually enriching coexistence of our peoples.
It is anti-Russian in nature. And in this situation, the most dangerous enemy for this neoliberal system is genuine Russians, because they want to arrange life, as they used to, for a thousand years, and therefore, we must get rid of them, they must be plugged, and best of all - to reduce them to ethnism, perception of oneself not by the builders of Russia, but by one of almost two hundred ethnic groups.
Such a policy of stalking Russians has led to the fact that, on the one hand, the state has almost died, and on the other, there is no development, and everyone has long been competing for 5 kopecks, which gives rise to a series of local clashes and civil wars.
Against the background of lack of development, the fall of education rises the ROC. Does it not turn out that the vague concept of "who are Russians" will find its definition in the formula - are Russians those who belong to the Russian Orthodox Church? And this will lead to a serious social rift?
Great efforts are being made to do so. And this is not the fault of the ROC, but this is what cunning political consultants are striving for. Because it is very convenient when Russians are forced into ethnism and nationalistic pseudo-religion, a genome-modified pseudo-orthodoxy. They want to chimeric political Orthodoxy, on the model of the so-called. "Political Islam".
But this, again, is a consequence of the fact that the government practically does not put strategic supra-ethnic super-tasks for the development of the country. In this regard, both Chechens, Russians, and Tatars are those nations that have lived and coexisted for centuries in the conditions of the most important tasks, that is, in a powerful state, and today this is not the case.
It’s time to get out of the situation when we are all being bruised, and the shape of the nose becomes the basis for someone to shoot. And the more primitivization of life goes on, the more the chaotic competition gets, which reduces life exclusively to ethical and tribal ties. Is it time to stop so primitive life, while moving away from the problems of creating advanced engineering, strengthening science, etc., and start working together for the geopolitical gain of our Russia?
Russians are supra-ethnic education, those who live in the Russian language and serve the Russian statehood. Therefore, instead of cultivating genuine Russianness, the Russian people are being destroyed on all sides as the basis of Russian statehood.
Nothing good will come of it.
“Russian jihad” is very simple. This is not the blackmail of the federal center or the laying of land mines on the roads. It's all the other way around.
At first, ten or twenty Russian men drink, unable to withstand the humiliation and venality of their own, created by themselves the state. But one morning, those who survived wake up and, sober, bring order.
In your opinion, what events will await us immediately after the Sochi Olympics?
And no one guaranteed the prosperous holding of the Olympiad itself!
Therefore, we must not wait for the Olympiad to end, but to correct the situation of total total injustice in the Caucasus right now. At the same time, we have to start doing long things - the things that had to be done over the past twenty years - to recreate industry, culture, agriculture, etc., but we should start with correcting glaring injustice, in particular, regarding Lieutenant Arakcheev.
And as soon as the reason to speak and suppose that he is a hostage of selfish interests in the Caucasus, the situation in the whole country will disappear, I repeat, at the moment it will change for the better.
