Military Review

Flowers on the armor. Is history repeating itself?

57
It is said that the wheel stories has such a feature - to repeat already past events. Through 50, 100, 1000 years.


Today, when I saw the Vesti report, I immediately remembered the newsreel footage. Similar. The same armored vehicles on the streets of Ukrainian cities, flags over cities without an eagle with a swastika or a trident. Joyful faces of people throwing flowers on armor.

And here are the frames of today's reports. Difference? Yes, fighting vehicles are not the same. Flags ... well, not a single flag, but a tricolor. People ... Well, people are dressed differently. But the joy is the same, genuine and sincere.

Between the reports exactly 70 years. Almost a month a month. Coincidence? Maybe so. Maybe it did.

I admit honestly, I was not so happy about the news about the events in Crimea. I was just sure that the enemy will not pass there. The fleet is there, the troops are there, all in Sevastopol. And I was absolutely sure that the country's leadership would not abandon its arbitrariness on Bandera's arbitrariness. Historically, half-numbered, native.

Donbass is different.

Say what you like, do not say anything here, this is another country. Let it be inhabited by half brothers in language, homeland and blood, but different. And I'm still very worried about the lives of many of my friends and acquaintances "on the other side." There is from what.

I understand that we need very weighty reasons for our soldiers to step in there, under the bullets of Bandera scum. I admit, I would not really like that. But I also do not want my friends to die for their freedom of speech, speech and thought.

Therefore, I was just overwhelmed with emotions, when I saw with my own eyes in the report, and then I was also confirmed by the guys from Ukraine that yes, the crews, along with the equipment, went to their side. So, indeed, "Ukraine has not yet died."

Here it is not a matter of loyalty to the state. And not even in loyalty to the oath. Here it is different. Here we are talking about civil conscience and spiritual responsibility. The fact that shooting at their own has always been considered a disgrace and betrayal.

"Zapadentsy" Easterners are not their own. This is an indisputable fact. But I know that there are (so far) many who hesitate, who are not sure. And the fact that many began to think, encouraging.

It's time for action. Resolute and frank. I am sure that those guys in Kramatorsk and Slavyansk will not be the first and the last in a series of people who decided not to shoot at their own people. I am sure that there will be more and more of them, day after day, night after night. That is how it should be.

How did the spring 1944 in Ukraine differ from the spring 2014 of the year? Probably, to many, and almost nothing. Flowers on armored cars, joy of hope, confidence that our cause is just, and we will win. I hope it will be that way.

      The ideal option if Kiev enters in solidarity with the South - East and the rest of Ukraine, the UKRAINIAN ARMY.
      Not because the Russians won't fit in, but because their own victory is much more valuable when it is achieved on its own. Then the Ukrainian people, wise by the bitter experience of "friendship" with the West, the Nazis, will choose themselves with whom they are. And Russia is always ready to help the fraternal people get out of the hassle, it is only necessary to restore the broken friendship.

    I also really hope that there will be no troop deployment. We do not need a new Cargo 200, cry mothers. All the same, it must something to break all this nonsense that was created by the mu.d.p.k.i. Yaytsenyuk, Tyagnibok, Klitschko, Tymoshenko. I really hope for the intelligence of the people of Ukraine. Everyone even seems to understand the banderlog militants that Ukraine needs them while there is a seizure of power. Then they will get rid of them, as from unnecessary and dangerous material. Many Maydans sit in Kiev and no longer know what to do. The West no longer sends money, no food. And they don’t want to go to their home in Western Ukraine, because there is a shank. Neither work nor salary.
    The East has risen! Soon I am sure they will drive this scum that seized power in Kiev into the neck. I really hope that human blood would not be shed. The mind must triumph!

    But what is alarming is that there is a lot of filth in Ukraine. Moreover, she, in her brainwashed mind, has only two clearly assimilated ideas: "who does not jump that ..." and "m ... to knives!"
    These will do anything until they are filled with a bloody yushka.
    Recall Kampuchea. Thousands of people exterminated people. But these banderlogs were not raised in this spirit.
    So, you will have to thoroughly flog them first, some on the slope, and to Makarenko for re-education.

    It should be understood that with the introduction of our troops to the southeast there will also be many people who disagree with this introduction from one side of the street flowers and bouquets of armor will pour on our guys and will applaud, but stones and Molotov cocktails will fly from the other side of the street.
    Over the past twenty years, training in other history textbooks where we were portrayed by the invaders where the Russian is not a hero a liberator but an invader and an occupier, unfortunately this has had its effect.
    Moreover, with the current propaganda in the media and the imposition of an external enemy in the form of Russia, it also had its effect so that for us there will not be everything as cloudless as Crimea.

      It would not be desirable, but it is not real, it is necessary to organize it in such a way that they themselves would ask.

    Perhaps our help will also be needed, but these will not be military operations, but targeted special operations to "neutralize" the leaders of the coup and its most odious supporters, and the taking of secure facilities under special protection. "Polite people" without insignia will come to the territories freed from Banderlog, and everything will smoothly "settle down." Then, regional referendums will be quietly and calmly.

    And how many of us are like that, tolerate this power! The people have not yet risen, we are waiting .. Already tired of "fighting" with neighbors and friends. Everyone wants peace of mind under any government, they sit quietly and wait. (Kiev region). There is no leader! The beaten rogue Tsarev is pornography.

    Here it is not a matter of loyalty to the state. And not even in loyalty to the oath. Here it is different. Here we are talking about civil conscience and spiritual responsibility. The fact that shooting at their own has always been considered a disgrace and betrayal.

    Great article, Roman!
    Briefly and clearly - all the MOST IMPORTANT.
    good

    My soul also brightened yesterday.
    I read my thoughts directly.
    Thank you.

        In the original of this video, a woman roars in a voice and asks her to stop.
        As a result, it was them who were wounded by soldiers from that BMD ...

        I'm a military man ...
        It’s not worth it with a bare ass to lift the Retreating and ARMED, not wishing to fight.
        Not worth it. Cold head must have.

    "How did the spring of 1944 in Ukraine differ from the spring of 2014?"

    What is different - past tense. But in general: Spring is a symbol of rebirth!

    This is with a high degree of probability - a junta provocation. A small group of unknown dressed HOW self-defense first began to call the people to the military unit (why would it) and then began to attack
    this part. This is strange and not typical of polite self-defense. Surely they all wrote it right away
    in the video to drain the junta misinformation.

    scum of the bottom that they do not want to just back off. there will be one way out. the west will not back down; they should be choked on Ukrainian cannon fodder. provocations from the right-wingers will follow, which ultimately will untie the citizen. I look forward to the May holidays with joy and fear. oh banderlog still show their vile snout.

    The alarming news from Mariupol:
    The military from the garrison opened fire on the people.
    Now in Ukraine’s hour of truth comes the hour of truth:
    Or the shooters will be isolated or all servicemen will be tied with bloody bail, which means they will be forced to shoot everyone at the people.
    A split in the army is inevitable.

    If necessary, let's get to Berlin!

    There is nothing for us to do there, just to destroy everything. We are tired of dodging around Europe for centuries and putting our soldiers' heads in the millions. To destroy everything, along with Washington.

    If NATO attacks RUSSIA, then shy away from all the guns.

    if you think about the meaning of this surprisingly deep poetic masterpiece, then it ideally sounds like an appeal not only to the Crimea, but also to the whole of New Russia and Little Russia to Russia. In fact, it can become the anthem of the Russian spring! Ponder it!

    WAIT FOR ME RUSSIA AND I WILL BE BACK ...

    Wait for me and I will come back.
    Only very much wait,
    Wait, when you are sad
    Yellow rains,
    Wait, when the snow is swept,
    Wait, when the heat,
    Wait, when others are not expected,
    Forgetting yesterday.
    Wait, when from distant places
    Letters will not come,
    Wait, when you're tired
    To all who wait together.

    Wait for me and I will come back,
    Do not wish good
    To everyone who knows by heart,
    What to forget is time.
    Let believe the son and mother
    In the fact that there is no me,
    Let the friends get tired of waiting,
    They'll sit at the fire,
    They will drink a bitter wine
    To remember the soul ...
    Wait. And with them at the same time
    Do not rush to drink.

    Wait for me and I will come back,
    To all deaths to spite.
    Who did not wait for me, let him
    Said: - Lucky.
    Do not understand, not waiting for them,
    As among the fire
    Waiting for
    You saved me.
    How I survived, we will know
    Only you and I
    You just could wait,
    Like no one else.

        - Logic tells you so. The liberation of Russia is ending. Further Europe, - said Boyko and, closing his briefcase, clicked the locks.
        Although he was a Ukrainian himself and liberated Belarus, he talked about everything together as Russia, all at once put into this one concept, as at that time other Russians and non-Russian people who fought on all fronts did.
        The word "Europe", spoken by Boyko immediately after the word "Russia," even somehow struck Zakharov, sounded unusual. They said "the peoples of Europe", they said "there, in Europe." Quite recently, it was still too far away to speak like this, as Boyko said now - not everything that they did themselves immediately reaches their own consciousness! But in fact it is so: let us free ourselves, we will begin to liberate the rest of Europe from the fascists. How else? What other words can I say about this?
        “I’m increasingly thinking about what life will be like after the war,” Zakharov said.
        “I don’t think yet,” said Boyko. - Once.
        “And I think,” repeated Zakharov. - Since they do not shoot anywhere in the world, it will probably seem out of habit that eternal life has come. Especially in the early days ...

    Mark Twain has many witty sayings and great aphorisms.
    I would like to quote the words where, in my opinion, Twain didn’t fall in the eyebrow, but in the eye.

    The junta is in a hurry to crush the Southeast until May, since there will be sooo many disaffected in May, when prices soar massively Ukrainians will be in the bulk either "eastern separatists" or western ones. The troops will not have to be introduced then, who dragged the junta into power, the same and overthrown

    Over the past twenty years, training in other history textbooks where we were portrayed by the invaders where the Russian is not a hero a liberator but an invader and an occupier, unfortunately this has had its effect.
    Well, I grew up on these and textbooks ... I don’t remember a single word about the Russian invaders ... or maybe our history teacher taught adequately ... but over the past 10 years I agree that Ukrainian history has changed dramatically ..

    A circle or a spiral, I do not think that it has (important) meaning .. The result is important .. And on a new "turn" to understand that the world has changed .. All the "laws" of the former world do not work (are invalid). We must create our own. Time still allows .. otherwise we will wait for the next "round" ..
