Why did I call the material exactly this way, after all, it is now accepted to call the anniversary of the tragic events “monkey's”, but not a holiday? The reservation is made intentionally. 20 years ago, tragic events occurred for the Ukrainian people. He gained independence, and every year he killed his state and himself. In 20 years, from a normal country, Ukraine has become a poor state, populated by an embittered and drunken people, whose only dream is to become independent from their power, and therefore the state.
Today I want to say a big thank you to the Ukrainian separatists for living so well for us. Ukrainians began by living better than in Russia, and then, they reasoned that they were living, at least, not worse than in Russia. Well, now we can talk about the fact that we have good songs. And we are waiting for something to happen in Russia, and be consoled by someone else's grief. Strange people, amazing country. Happy Birthday Ukraine, with the holiday of the Ukrainian people. Gifts to you will be later, they will be sent by mail, in the form of receipts for payment of housing and communal services. Those who want to please themselves in addition, can go to the store and buy fast-growing products for the holiday table. Now we are not living in a “scoop”, with a wooden ruble, but with a paper dollar and an even more paper hryvnia. We already have everything, except for decent work and an appropriate salary. It is ridiculous to say that in the USSR everything was fine, but everything is known in comparison. The USSR was an authoritarian communist state, but not anti-people, not as limitless as the current Ukraine. Most of the modern rulers of Ukraine in the Soviet years would have shone places not so remote, and not warm rooms on the Kiev hills.
Twenty years, like one day. Let us try to run through the past years in order to understand where we started and came to. It would not be a great exaggeration to say that Ukraine’s Independence, as they say today, was “conquered” in order not to feed Russia. 1991 year. Having survived, like rats in the holes of the State Emergency Committee, the Ukrainian non-intellectuals received the coveted freedom of their first president, Leonid Kravchuk. At the same time, the Ukrainian people began to reap its first fruits in the form of a radical fall in the standard of living and the triumph of banditry. The symbol of the "era" - the legendary "kravchuchka" trolley for the transport of goods to the market.
In the 1994 year, amid disappointment with the first results of independence of the “red separatist” Leonid Kravchuk as president of Ukraine, Leonid Kuchma, the “red director”, allegedly in favor of maintaining good-neighborly relations with Russia, replaces. However, no improvement in relations with Russia is observed, Kuchma simply deceived his voter, and instead of the promised pro-Russian policy, he conducted a pro-Western, instead of protecting the interests of the Russians who voted for him, Leonid Danilovich was actively engaged in Ukrainization. It is enough of the fact that the Constitution of Ukraine, which enshrines the status of the state Ukrainian language, was adopted precisely under Kuchma in 1996. Of course, there was no talk about any prosperity of the country and the people.
Time flew by quickly and new elections are scheduled for Ukraine, scheduled for October 31 1999 of the year. Leonid Danilovich can no longer use the map of the pro-Russian politician for the second time, because, firstly, everyone is well aware that he is not pro-Russian, and secondly, he is represented by left-wing politicians Simonenko, Moroz and Vitrenko, who have more chances to intercept the pro-Russian electorate. But Leonid Danilovich was “fabulously lucky,” since in August 1999, the Chechen militants invaded the territory of Dagestan, thereby unleashing the second Chechen war in the Caucasus. A video is being broadcast on Ukrainian TV channels, the leitmotiv of which “Russian children are dying in Chechnya”. The election video clearly explains to everyone that Ukraine’s independence from Russia is better. However, already in 2001, Leonid Danilovich understood the end of pro-Western orientation and Euro-Atlantic integration. The action "Ukraine without Kuchma", the reason for which was the mysterious disappearance of the Ukrainian journalist Georgy Gongadze. Why did you need to make Kuchma "an enemy of the people"? Let's leave the tale that the leaders of the “first Ukrainian Maidan” themselves thought of overthrowing Leonid Danilovich, for commoners, it is different. Under Kuchma, talk began about the creation of a Common Economic Space and a Customs Union with Russia.
Smoot continues. 2004 year. The so-called "Orange Revolution" against Kuchma, demonized with the help of the West, and his "heir" Yanukovich. According to the results of the third round of voting, the anti-Russian President of Ukraine is the first to win, in words and in deeds. With each of his cell Russophobia and ... frankly weak politician in every sense of Yushchenko. However, who in Ukraine wanted to notice it? People with sterilized propaganda with brains, in principle, cannot see and think for themselves. "At once we are rich, we are not under the cover." The show is played according to all the laws of the genre.
Today it is foolish to deny the fact that in reality, even in the second round of voting, Yushchenko, and not Yanukovych, should have won. For the first time in the years of independence, the majority of Ukrainians vote against the pro-Russian proclaiming candidate. Ukraine is "baked". Long-term anti-Russian propaganda makes itself felt. Ukraine is no longer Russia.
However, what a real pro-Ukrainian president has become is clear from the first days of the accession of Viktor Yushchenko. Firstly, it is the ardent nationalist. Secondly, it is a western puppet. Thirdly, it is nepotism, corruption and absolute inadequacy in everything. Begins a five-year hohlosracha. There is no other way to name the events from 2005 to 2010. One mace, a thousand candidates who see themselves as real hetmans of Ukraine. Little Ukrainians who survived the Maidan seat groan: "Victor and Julia - make peace for the ideals of the revolution." Actual slogans "Do not zrad Maidan." Where there! When sawing dough and for access to the power sawmill of power, any Ukrainian ideals fade into the background.
A few years later, the opponents of the “Maidan” finally extended their hands to reconciliation. Viktor Yushchenko "puts" Viktor Yanukovych in the chair of the Prime Minister of Ukraine. Everything is very simple. It's not even about money, but the fact that for Viktor Andreevich Yanukovych was not a competitor. Deal with the enemy in Ukraine is more preferable than an alliance with the same as you. He compares his ex-girlfriend to a "bitch who picked up fleas." She snaps a charming snake smile in response to Putin's pun about Mazurik, who stole the premier's plane. Mazurik is Yushchenko, Bitch is Tymoshenko. The inscriptions "Forgive us Lenya" appear on the streets. We are talking about the "overthrown ex-president Kuchma", and not the mayor of Kiev, nicknamed Leon Cosmos. Nicknames in Ukraine replace politicians names, positions. Symptomatic? What a respect for power here!
Ukrainians with enthusiasm and sobbing watch television freedom of speech, which, with the filing of "prisoner of conscience" from Russia Savik Shuster, cloned up to three independent projects. Finally, Ukraine began to produce rating television shows! In Russia, “House-2” with Ksenia Sobchak as the leading, in Ukraine something similar, with leading politicians of the country. The essence is one. Participants crap at each other and crap at Ukraine. Fortunately, and perhaps to the misfortune, it did without victims, suicides and trials. Questions of honor in Ukraine are few who touch. However, there were real tragedies, but the Ukrainians somehow reacted indifferently to them. We are talking about the murders of Kravchenko, Kirpa and Kushnaryov. Of course, the three killed former high-ranking officials cost less than one missing Gongadze journalist.
What passions, what experiences tormented Ukrainian society during the Orange Troubles! Everything was so serious, as if the fate of the life and death of the state was being decided. But what is interesting, in the end, absolutely everything turned out as it should, as external forces wanted. Where it was necessary, there the Ukrainians entered, where it was not necessary, they did not go there. It turns out, in vain the Ukrainians were worried about the fate of the country? The main thing is that in all cases Ukraine has achieved its own weakening in political and economic terms. Everything that happened resembled the floundering of an inexperienced traveler, who climbed into the swamp and instead of quietly waiting for the decision of his fate, fluttered so much that he was sucked into the quagmire at the very most.
Elections 2010 of the year in Ukraine were uncontested. After the Orange Power, the Yanukovich team had to “try hard” to win the elections with a dubious margin of a little over 3% of votes. I don’t think that those who say that his “pro-Russian” nature was the main asset of Yanukovych are right. Twenty years after the collapse of the USSR, two decades of anti-Russian propaganda, people no longer remember the Soviet country and do not know modern Russia, but they feel the price of Russian gas in their own skin. Indeed, the voter of eastern Ukraine was specifically sick of all other aspirants to the power of a nationalistic orientation, but the biggest contribution to the victory of Viktor Yanukovych was the promise of lower gas prices, which was associated in the head of the philistine with supposedly “good relations” with the Russian leadership.
But, Yanukovych had no good relations with the Kremlin, no, and never will be. It’s not even about Yanukovych and what he thinks. Ukraine has traveled that station when it is possible to get quite material benefits at the expense of beautiful and promising toasts for the “friendship of peoples”. Moscow is well aware of the price of all Ukrainian words, promises and agreements, therefore all concessions are made exclusively on an advance payment. It should be noted that the “Kharkov agreements” of Yanukovych were not caused by the fact that he had sympathy for the Black Sea Fleet Russia in Sevastopol, and the fact that to stabilize the Ukrainian economy needed a discount on gas. In this sense, Yanukovych is as pro-Russian as the majority of the population of Ukraine, who wants to convert the independence of the state into hard currency. Well, for the fact that the price of Russian gas for Ukraine has risen to exorbitant heights, I must say one more big thanks to all the actors in Ukrainian politics. In the struggle for access to cheap cheese, everyone pushed themselves together into a mousetrap. It should be noted that they shoved each other a lot of fun. But this whole booth resembled a children's game, when after the next fun one chair is removed and a participant who does not have time to take a seat leaves the game. First, Yushchenko dropped out. Then Tymoshenko left. Today on a chair solemnly sits Yanukovych. It was only painfully “golden” for Ukraine.
We are accustomed to believing what sociological polls show us. By them we judge the degree of patriotism of the population of Ukraine, the readiness to defend their country, but we forget that the sale of independence has long been accomplished in the heads of little Ukrainians during the orange period when independence was exchanged for joining the EU and NATO. In addition, more than five million Ukrainians have already sold their “love for Ukraine” with their feet, having moved to “abroad”. Even more people from escaping from Ukraine are held back only by the fact that not everyone is privately accepted to the beds, construction sites and bars of Spain, Italy, Poland, Portugal ...
Sovereignty for Ukrainians has lost its sacred meaning, and the price for which it can be sold is important for them. What attracted Ukrainians to the EU? Mowed lawns, well-groomed streets, medicine, education, pensions and salaries in the 500 euro area! Tell me at the mercy, about what kind of patriotism do we hear every minute? After the advertising to the European Union, which the Ukrainian nationalists made during the five years of their rule, as well as their forerunners, one must be a complete idiot to remain faithful to their country. If someone is eager to take offense at my words, then he can do as much as he pleases, only it is, after all, not in words, but in fact, which has its real confirmation.
What is modern Ukraine, if you go beyond abstract reasoning? The corrupt state. Discredited power. Separated people, where on the one hand live Muscovites, and on the other Bandera. Lack of national leader. Lack of nationwide ideas. The absence of something for which you can feel pride, and not shame! In Ukraine, there is neither Lukashenka, nor Gaddafi, nor Assad for whom the people and the army can go. Does anyone think that people will fight for certain characters that have no real content? Yes, there are fanatics in Ukraine for whom “Ukraine will need a trinket,” but their number is not even a few percent. Moreover, it is impossible to call them defenders of the state, because it is material for pogroms and ethnic cleansing, and not the protection of the state and order. So the key question for Ukraine is not to defend it, but how to attach it, with greater profit for itself. It is a matter of time and circumstances that the absolute majority of Ukrainians want to “sell” the Ukrainian independence of Russia. Today is bargaining. As in the "Oriental Bazaar" are called transcendental prices.
Russia wants to include Ukraine in its composition? Please, just first let them trim the lawns, pave the streets, make medicine, education and a salary in 1000 euros. Such is the logic of the “little Ukrainian”. But all this is already spoken not only on the Internet forums, but also by politicians at the official level. Are the conversations about gas prices, about the benefits of joining the CU and CES on a sober analytical calculation? Not at all. Do we rarely hear such words: Belarus entered the Union State with Russia and how much gas is there? What is the real price of all these flags on Independence Day? Exactly as much as the material of which they are made.
This is the result of our independence, twenty years of brainwashing and upbringing of Ukrainian patriotism. The funny thing is that neither Europe nor Russia did not intend to, and are not going to include Ukraine in their composition, let alone cut lawns here and pay euros to 500 Ukrainians. This is the myth that Ukrainian politicians and their overseas consultants gave birth to in order to fool the people of 20 for years.
Ukrainians still believe mossy tales that Russia without Ukraine is nothing. That it will not survive, fall apart, will be occupied ... but as time goes on, Russia does not disappear like a haze, but on the contrary, increases its influence in the world, increases its military and economic potential. On the contrary, the Ukrainians themselves still believe that by certain magical passes of the hands, by choosing a more intelligent politician, one can save the country and avoid its bankruptcy. An intelligent and responsible politician in Ukraine will not be in the near future. The Ukrainian will not vote for him, because everything that he will say and offer to this person will not please him. A clever and responsible politician for Ukraine is a marginal and Ukrainophobe.
Can Russian be a President of Ukraine who does not hide his Russianness, speaks Russian, does not profess any Ukrainian values, but has a sober mind. Not pro-Russian, namely Russian! Do you believe in the coming of such a person to power in Ukraine? Me not! The test for political maturity failed.
Like all 20 years of independence, we all care about, when will this booth end? When Ukraine stops rushing, get rid of the illusion, and finally, it will understand that it must solve all its problems independently, without Russia, America, Europe, and now China, which, with the suggestion of a number of experts, has become our next strategic partner. With the least need to worry about the fate of Russia, to dream of Europe, and begin to restore order at home. Unfortunately, I am a pessimist. Ukrainian ideology and people practicing it are not capable of finding constructive solutions. What to do? The conclusion suggests itself. Ukrainian ideology is destructive and leads to the destruction of any statehood, the degradation of the people, and therefore it should not be in a new country.
I am aware that what I have written will cause people to be hurt, turning into hatred and a desire to finish me off. But someone in this country has to tell the truth. We lurked to the extreme point for all the years of the so-called independence. Our lies seem to many saints, hiding under the guise of love for the Ukrainian people. But there is no holiness in this lie, this lie is mean and humiliates the people of Ukraine. We must know the truth about ourselves, about who we have become and who we could become. Ukraine can give the world great sons, scholars, discoverers, warriors, and not masters of pottery and cross-stitching. We do not need to magnify the lack of talent, we have Gogol, who alone will be enough, to be proud of our literature. We had Sikorsky, Korolenko, Korolev, Bulgakov and they must be returned in order to return themselves, their history, and not to dodge 20 for years in search of a non-existent one. The Ukrainian is not a national minority, not a Native American, not a Negro, who needs protection and is unable to do without humiliating preferences and privileges. So who actually insults the Ukrainians, their language, their talents? Think for yourself.
Ps. I want to emphasize that the small Ukrainian is not alone in his desire to "sell the country for sausage." There are similar people in Russia. Have you ever heard the songs with these words: stop feeding the Caucasus? But they are exactly like those that were sung in Ukraine at the end of the 80s. Not many people in Ukraine differ from the Russians, it’s just that the main propaganda blow was directed at those who wanted to weaken their geopolitical rival, split the Russian Empire, creating Ukrainian separatism, destroy the USSR and create 15 independent states. But if, already in Russia, they started talking about “sausage”, it means that the opponents of all-Russian unity awakened their appetite to split, divide, and dominate.
