Memorial program for the centenary of the First World War: the first in Russia in a hundred years

49

In Russia, for the first time, a large-scale memorial program was prepared for the 100 anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. This was announced by the Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Vladimir Medinsky at an international meeting dedicated to the preparation for the memorial date.


“Previously, we did not participate in such committees and commissions, and we never celebrated either the 50 anniversary or other anniversaries associated with this war. Our country suffered the greatest losses, participated in the coalition of winners, but at the same time declared itself defeated - due to internal cataclysms. Now Russia is regaining its history.

The head of department stressed that current generations should not forget the heroism of our soldiers, the sacrifices of thousands and tens of thousands of Russian heroes.

According to Medinsky, negotiations with the French partners were very sympathetic.

It is noteworthy that in September 2014 will mark the 100 anniversary of the Battle of Marne, and, at the suggestion of the French Minister of Veterans Affairs Kader Arif, Russia will be invited to participate at the highest level. Appropriate invitations will also be made in connection with the anniversary of the landing in Normandy, from which 2014 will be 70 in June.

Moscow, for its part, invited Arif and French Culture Minister Oreli Filipetti to celebrate the opening of the monument to the heroes of the First World War, to be held on 1 August 2014 on Poklonnaya Hill in Moscow, ITAR-TASS reports.

Recall that in Russia, under the chairmanship of State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin, a national committee has been set up to prepare for the centenary of the First World War. Vladimir Medinsky noted that the plans of the ministry include a conference of scientists, holding several major exhibitions, including abroad. Next year is expected to open the first in Russia State Museum of the First World War in Tsarskoye Selo near St. Petersburg.

- Planned a huge program. Only through the Ministry of Culture, we are talking about filming about 20 documentaries, several feature films, many books are being published.

Conceived and a large project of opening the Museum of the First World War in Red Square. It would be a continuation of the 1812 Museum of the year, opened last year.

    I am very glad that we have reached a period where we link our history together, and do not look at it in the prism of a certain epoch. Our entire history (mostly victorious in all matters) should be the pride of a Russian citizen, regardless of rulers and order!

      Yeah. And I'm proud zhovtoblakitnomu? request It was because of the consequences of this war that everything rolled into a tar-ta-rara ... One plus, Stalin was at the helm. Stopped the murder of Russia. But if the provinces were preserved, I don’t know how Georgia is, but Little Russia (without Galicia) would definitely be with Russia, as for example, the Belgorod Region today. winked But now Kharkov, Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Lugansk, Odessa, Zaporozhye, Nikovlaev, Kherson are factories for the production of Russian-speaking Russophobes. The phrase of the Eastern Ukrainians: "Although I am Russian, but if Russia sticks here, my hand will not flinch!" - is very common in the East of Ukraine. sad

        Yeah ! One report by Durnovo to the future martyr about the fact that under no circumstances can Russia get involved in a military adventure on the side of the Entente against Germany. Everything predicted was fulfilled right up to the forecast for Little Russia with the accession of Galicia. Joining the war is the beginning of the collapse of the Russian Empire, and not the Bolshevik coup of the 17th, everything is simple there, like Napoleon's - the crown was lying in the mud and he lifted it with his sword.

        And who made the war? The consequences, I agree, but it turned out the same! I said this because our historians are used to writing (rewriting) history according to their mood and in line with the thread and the accusations. And in terms of praise, honesty, patriotism, little is written! Until recently, we forgot about World War I! To confirm, ask the 1th grader when it started and when it ended, be surprised!

        Do you know why this all turns out? Due to the indecision of Russia! It would be decisive Ukraine and Belarus would have long been a part of Russia. And besides, before these people were born, and the further position, well, we'll see, think, will lead to the fact that there will be even more !!!!

    The First World War, a very bloody war for the Russian army was BLOOD - too many of our people lost men there.

    In Soviet times, I do not remember much about this time.
    Meanwhile, it was followed by a revolution that radically changed the course of history on our planet.
    Therefore, I wanted to know everything about this bloody massacre started by the CAPITALISTS of ALL COUNTRIES.

      You're not right. Those who studied isstroya at school, but did not pass it, then there was enough school material on it, especially because the First World War was the prologue of the revolution. And the causes of the revolution in the Soviet school were studied.

    I completely agree, well, in the West, there propaganda works to the full, remember the events in South Ossetia, and how this vaunted democratic press was choked with foam at the mouth, carrying lies to its peoples. And about our youth, this is really a shame, so the history of modern Russia is taught in school.

      This is in what step? It seems that at the time of both revolutions, German troops were in the territory of the Republic of Ingushetia, and not vice versa. Wars are not only won by taking the capital of the enemy. The Russian Empire lost the war and this is a fact. If the army fought more successfully, then there might not have been any revolution either. Or maybe it would be smarter not to go into this massacre at all with such a political situation inside the country, because war is a continuation of politics.
      And about the installation of the monument, I fully support it, it seems that the project is nothing.

        The Russian Empire did not lose this war (just as the Soviet Union did not lose the Afghan one)! The Second World War was lost by the libertarian power, "ascended to the throne" after the Romanovs. If there had been no February events, there would have been no October coup. It was not for nothing that Lenin called this whole shobla "useful idiots." It was the actions, or rather the inaction of the temporary workers, that led to the disaster.

They fought with dignity and once again could put Europe (and Asia) in the right place, but the organizers of the war from foggy Albion provided for everything.

          How did it not lose? The state collapsed as a result of the war, the army collapsed, the tsar renounced, the governance structure and the government collapsed, the infamous Brest Peace was signed, part of the land left Russia, and in general there was a question about the liquidation of Russia as a state. And is this not a loss in the war? Germany still continued to battle in 1918. If the war were successful, these events did not happen.

    This is called surviving. Unless, of course, the truth. From here, the conclusion is that while in Russia a simple Russian will not live normally, and not as shown on TV. It’s not worth talking about any greatness of Russia. It turns out that we are great only in the occupied territory. The rest of the myth, greatness remained in the Soviet past.

    By the way, in the West, even if they talk about Russia’s participation in the First World War, it’s somehow in passing, although they already begin to talk about Russia / USSR’s participation in the Second World War. Everything was done by the USA and Great Britain, and the USSR is almost equal The Third Reich, and the fact that 9 out of 10 Nazi soldiers died on the Eastern Front, is what dictators are fighting, what to take from them. By the way, by the way, the assessment of the victims of Russian soldiers in World War I is curious (note there are no dictators and communists in sight) made by the Ambassador of France, Palaeologist, who said that the sacrifice of one French soldier was worth the sacrifice of ten Russian barbarians. I hope that the monument will be to all ordinary participants in this meat grinder who went and performed their duty despite the absurdity of this war. And the monument should serve as a reminder future generations about what could happen to the country when Russian soldiers are sent to fight for the interests of France, Great Britain and the USA.

    The bloody, although now holy, St. Nicholas the second and, thank the last Lord Gospodi, dragged Russia into this war, unnecessary to her. Our expeditionary corps (for some reason, little is written about this) fought in France ... The French themselves, like in the Second World War, didn’t really want to fight for their homeland ... But when Lenin pulled Russia out of this war , Entente somehow very quickly coped with the Fritz.

    My grandfather just fought in France as part of the expeditionary corps, was wounded, spent a year in the hospital. Because of his wounds and age he didn’t go to the front in World War II. The eldest son fought, my uncle was a tankman. It’s good that such a monument appears, and then we seemed to have deleted these people from history. They deserved it rightfully.
