Say thanks to your fathers!

Say thanks to your fathers!



I will make a reservation right away: this note is just an opinion. No analytics, no theories. Only the emotions of today.

When, on a Sunday night, the patient Rastorguev with visible difficulty pulled out on the main square of the Crimea: "Sevastopol is waiting, Kamchatka is waiting, Kronstadt is waiting", I barely managed to hold a tear. Because Sevastopol waited. And I waited. We all waited ...

Against the background of universal jubilation, genuine joy of people on the streets of Russian and now also Russian Crimean cities, undisguised pride in their country and their people, I suddenly thought of my father. I thought that he, too, once had 30. I thought about what I saw in my 30, and what my father was deprived of.

He served in the most powerful army of the world - the USSR Armed Forces, and in his 30 he saw with his own eyes the collapse of his country, and the collapse of this invincible and legendary ... I saw the collapse of everything that was a subject of pride for all Soviet people. He saw corrupt ministers and generals, beggars fallen into disgust from despair, soldiers killed and sick, scrap metal used for military equipment, abandoned airfields ... And I saw how he squeezed his teeth from pain of teeth to change something to the pain in his teeth. He could leave everything, go into business, eventually leave the country, but there was not even a thought about it. He tolerated, in spite of everything, honestly and conscientiously fulfilled his duty to protect the country's defenses. And he believed that everything will change once.

And now I realized that he was doing this for me. In order for me to live in my 30 in another country, see another army, be proud of my people. For what he was deprived ... And he waited.

Thanks to him and those like him, today we have the right to be proud of our country, our army, our people. They did it. Low bow to them for it!

    Against the background of this euphoria, we would not forget those creatures that forced the Russian Crimea and the Russian city of Sevastopol to live in humiliation and under-state for more than 20 years am

    Joining the Crimea means a lot. All these years, when Russia was so often poured mud and sang the funeral, the Kremlin was accused of serving the interests of America, there were those who believed in the homeland, who dreamed of becoming a part of it. Glory to them!
    Well, Moscow received not only almost 2,5 million new citizens, these people will support Putin. There is a reason.

    There are millions of us who survived the devastation of the 90s, who did not get drunk, who fed their families every day, who believed in the future of Russia! And believed in GDP!

    But those who are now foaming at the mouth on the Maidan have either forgotten about their fathers, or "remembered" the same thing, but only about those fathers who, together with the Nazis, destroyed the peoples of the USSR.
    God grant that the Southeast of Ukraine remembers the same thing, for which their fathers and grandfathers fought, and liberate their lands from the offspring of the Nazis-Bandera.

    I think that Russia has a future. The discord and strife of the 90's, the wars in Chechnya and the gang underground are already a thing of the past. Of course, the states and the west will do everything to reignite the Caucasus, but if geopolitics focuses on Ukraine, then most likely those who are still sitting in the forests of Dagestan and Chechnya, those who are fighting in Syria and Libya, will flood.
    And, Something seems to me, the Chechen battalions will go ahead of the Russian troops. The highlanders yearned for war. It’s in the blood.

    Therefore, he did not go "to civilian life" ... even when the pay for 6 months was not paid.
