Battle for history Russia continues. The question of the inadmissibility of attempts to distort the history of our Motherland was raised by President Vladimir Putin. Almost simultaneously, historians of Tatarstan stated that almost all of their proposals on a Russian textbook were included in the final version, which was presented to the court of the Russian president.
During the meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin with the developers of the concept of a new educational and methodological complex on the history of the Fatherland, one of the leading themes was the inadmissibility of attempts to distort the history of Russia. According to the President of the Russian Federation, the very need to create a single textbook on the history of Russia was associated with the presence of a significant number of works that contain “ideological garbage”. As a result, schools received educational literature that contained such things that are “absolutely unacceptable” for Russia and the people and, in fact, insult Russian citizens.
Vladimir Putin drew attention to the fact of reducing the contribution of the Soviet people in the fight against fascism. At the same time, the president said that attempts to introduce “some kind of uniformity in thinking and evaluation” are not in question. He also urged not to refuse to work with foreign researchers: “Together we can develop the most objective approaches to the estimates.”
Thus, we see a clear duality. The president acted on the principle "both ours and yours". And he does this quite often. On the one hand, Vladimir Putin is right: all attempts to distort the history of Russia must be firmly stopped. The historical (chronological) priority of managing society is one of the highest. With the help of history, it is possible to bring up whole generations of “Ivanov who do not remember kinship,” to carry out a “recoding” of the matrix of entire branches of a single superethnos Rus. As already reprogrammed a significant part of the Rus (Russians) Little Russia (Ukraine). Several centuries of “cultural cooperation” and information warfare, which the Vatican, Austria-Hungary, Germany, Poland and the Anglo-Saxons waged against Russian civilization, led to the creation of the “Ukrainian people”. The current events in Kiev are one of the consequences of this process. It is impossible to allow the geopolitical opponent to “work” with the population, instill in it alien values, distorted knowledge.
Putin is fully right in the fact that it is impossible to downplay the role of the Soviet people and the USSR in World War II. The “black myths” about the Great War literally flooded the minds of Russians. Here and detachments, who shot their own, and terrible enkavedeshniki and Smerzhevtsy, who in vain mocked ordinary soldiers and commanders, and "corpses filled up," and "children saboteurs," and much more.
On the other hand, the words about “ideological garbage” are doubtful. If the new history textbook of Russia removes the liberal nonsense of the 1990-2000-s sample - great. Indeed, almost all the “ideological rubbish” in the history books was introduced during the existence of the Russian Federation, partly in the years of “perestroika”. It was during this period that Russia was subtly destroyed by information, ideological and historical weapons.
However, if the authors of the new textbook launch another campaign for desovietization and de-Stalinization, then the picture will come out grim. After all, the Soviet project is a model to which modern Russia should strive. It is clear that the USSR was not an ideal state, but there was never such a thing on the planet. Man and human society are subjective in nature. But it was the Stalinist USSR that gave all mankind hope for a different future than the one that the “architects” of the West and their clients are building on the periphery of the “developed world”.
Putin’s words about the absence of attempts to introduce “some kind of uniformity in thinking and evaluations” and the need to work together with foreign colleagues and the possibility to work together to develop the most objective approaches is even more doubtful. After all, a single history textbook of Russia, which can educate young people with patriots of Russia, is just necessary. Only a single ideology and history can make the nation strong, able to withstand external and internal threats. There should be no discord and vacillation. History should foster a sense of national pride.
Arguments about the need for "collaboration" with foreign colleagues - stupidity and strategic error. Historical science in the West, and in the East, always fulfills an ideological order. The method of "cultural cooperation" is a way of "information capture" of a foreign territory. At the same time, the western "partners" are recruiting a kind of Russian scientists. Trips abroad, conferences, grants, awards, publications, popularity - these are “gingerbread”. Part of the Russian scientists is being incorporated into a kind of “mafia” that controls the population through the introduction of false historical concepts. They are introducing ideas about the "secondary" of Russia in relation to European civilization, constant borrowing, the need to repent for the "historical crimes" of the Russian (Soviet) colonialists, Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, Catherine II, Stalin and other Russian emperors and statesmen, generals. Therefore, "foreign colleagues" on the cannon shot can not be allowed to Russian history.
The mite in creation of the uniform textbook have brought and scientists of Tatarstan. Scientists of Tatarstan declare that practically all their proposals on the all-Russian textbook were approved by the commission of Sergey Naryshkin and entered into the final version, which was submitted to the Russian president. According to the authors of the amendments, all of them will be approved and will be included in the final version of the textbook.
Thus, soon the well-known concept of the “Tatar-Mongolian yoke” will become a thing of the past, and students will learn a different “Tatar component” of the history of Russia. The term "Mongol-Tatar yoke" will be replaced by a politically correct one - "dependence on the Golden Horde." Also among the innovations is mentioned the Soviet poet, Hero of the Soviet Union Musa Jalil, who in German captivity created an underground group and was preparing an uprising, but the Gestapo revealed the underground workers, they were executed. They will also tell students about the contribution of the first President of Tatarstan M. Shaimiev, etc.
It must be said that here one can note both a positive start and a negative one. The term "Tatar-Mongol yoke" really does not correspond to historical reality. There were no "Mongols" in the territory of Russia and Eastern Europe. There are no anthropological, genetic and cultural traces of the “Mongols” (Mongoloids). Russian researchers have already destroyed the concept of the conquest of Russia by the “Mongols”, who came from Mongolia on their horses. Prior to this, the semi-wild shepherds allegedly smashed China, Khorezm and many other strong states. This issue is discussed in more detail in a series of articles. Russian land before the Batu invasion. The problem of the "Mongol" invasion of Russia.
An alternative version is becoming more and more interesting, according to which the invasion of Batu's army into Russia was connected with the process of internal “showdowns” within the Northern Power, the heiress of the Skifo-Sarmatian empire. Rus (Russians) and "Tatars" were the direct heirs of this empire. And those and others were Caucasians (representatives of the white race). There was a struggle between the various centers of the northern power, which passed the next stage of internal instability. At first, the Horde triumphed with its capital in Sarai. However, the process of Islamization of the “ulus Juchi” caused an internal split of the empire and its degradation. This led to the gradual strengthening of Moscow, to which “Tatars” began to move to the service. As a result, under Ivan the Terrible, the empire regained power over most of the former possessions, and Moscow was already the center of power. In this context, Russia-Russia has a history of many thousands of years, and the direct ancestors of the Rus are Sarmatians, Scythians, Cimmerians and arias (Indo-Europeans).
It is also necessary to take into account that the Kazan Tatars, like the Chuvash, are descendants of the tribal union of the Bulgarians. And the Volga Bulgaria during the war with the “Mongols”, which lasted from 1223 to 1240, suffered a historic defeat. "Mongolian" troops completely destroyed the entire Volga-Kama Bulgaria, and its territory became part of the Golden Horde. Therefore, the attempts of some Tatar nationalists to lean against the glory of Genghis Khan and Batu look miserable. Volga Bulgaria was the victim of a confrontation in northern Eurasia, and trying to transfer it backdating to the camp of the winners is clearly a bad idea.
In general, the attempts of local scientists, representatives of small nations to revise the history of Russia in their favor should be treated very carefully. The ideological discord of the last decades and the active work of representatives of the Western and Islamic projects in Russia have led many representatives of the local intelligentsia to work consciously or unconsciously against Russian civilization. Suffice it to recall the claims of “innocently repressed peoples” during the years of the Great Patriotic War, such as Chechens or Crimean Tatars.
You can agree with Anatoly Wassermanwho suggested that a history textbook that will satisfy most citizens of the Russian Federation can be done quite quickly. It is enough to take a Soviet history textbook and slightly “clean” it from Marxism-Leninism. And this material can be the basis for the upbringing and education of the patriots of Russia. It is also necessary to throw out all the “ideological garbage” that was littered with history during the years of “perestroika” and the domination of liberal values. Further, it will be possible to improve the history textbook through clarifications based on recent discoveries. And for this, Russia needs an analogue of the German Ancestral Heritage, but without mystical and occult nonsense.
The concept of the history of Russia should be expanded at the expense of the Sarmatian, Scythian, Cimmerian and Aryan (Pre-Slavic) periods. The Slavic (Russian) concept of history, which was defended by Lomonosov, Lyzlov, Tatishchev, Veltman, Gedeonov, Lyubavsky, Ilovaisky, Petukhov and many other devotees, should become prevalent in Russia.
