Kiev takes dear guests
The Ukraine-Russia: Dialogue Congress will be held over two days, and, as announced, ways of cooperation between the two countries will be discussed. It seems to be a good idea, and the authors could begin to bow to the belt for the desire to reconcile the fraternal nations and fraternal peoples quarreled at the behest of politicians. But only who, in fact, said that the ideological inspirers of the congress had plans to consider questions of reconciliation, issues of resolving a large-scale conflict, which already has a bloody hue?
The fact that none of the “congressmen” and “co-princes” is not going to call for any reconciliation from the sides in Kiev can already be understood by the composition of this “representative” meeting. Everything is here: Alexey Venediktov (Echo of Moscow radio station), Lyudmila Ulitskaya (writer), Dmitry Bykov (writer), Mykola Veresen (he is Nikolay Sytnik - Ukrainian journalist, actor, politician), Ekaterina Degot (art critic, art critic) , Andrei Kurkov (writer). Not that these people are not peaceful. No, very peaceful. I can even say pacified. But only in that case, their tranquility manifests itself when overseas "friends of Russia" are pacified and smiling. As soon as the "friends" start to get nervous, bang on the table with their fingers and fidget in the chairs, so this calmness of the listed representatives of the progressive intelligentsia of the Russian Federation blows away like wind.
And this cohort is managed in Kiev by the main “conductor”, he is yesterday’s sideler (now the trend is becoming fashionable both in Russia and in Ukraine: “he stole - drank - in jail” - amnesty - politics), a great expert on dialogues as such - Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
Turning to the real issues that the ladies and gentlemen represented gathered to discuss in the Ukrainian capital, it is worth saying that the attention of the ladies and gentlemen is focused on creating the so-called “road map”. At the same time, the “road map” will be drawn by the participants of the congress, apparently, in their usual manner, as the defining direction of work is chosen such a direction as upholding the “freedom of speech”. On the "freedom of speech" in the understanding of MBH associates a little later.
Gathered in Kiev for a dialogue. And after all, this should happen: Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Dmitry Bykov, and other male citizens of Russia, the Ukrainian frontier guards simply missed their territory. Recall that at the moment, entry into the territory of the Square for all Russians, men aged from 16 to 60 years is closed due to the fact that Kiev is afraid of the possible participation of Russians in the events in the south-east. Only those who can submit documents about dead or seriously ill relatives on the territory of Ukraine or by special invitation, which is known to the Ukrainian Border Guard Service, are admitted. Looking into the personal data of Khodorkovsky and Bykov, who (the data) are in the public domain. Mikhail Borisovich - 50, Dmitry Lvovich - 46. What are the conclusions?
First: Mikhail Borisovich and Dmitry Lvovich (citizens of Russia) The Border Guard Service of Ukraine does not consider men to be men.
Or the second: Mikhail Borisovich and Dmitry Lvovich in Kiev, someone died, and the compatriots did not even express condolences.
Or, third: Khodorkovsky and Bykov were invited to Ukraine, having previously informed the Frontier Service. And if so, then the information that Mikhail Borisovich himself presented is somehow strange: it was he (MBH), they say, that he was the organizer of the congress in Kiev. He organized, and someone invited him - somehow does not fit. Another thing: “someone” organized, and the MBH was invited to implement the idea.
In principle, each reader can choose to explain how Khodorkovsky, Bykov and other activists turned out to be in Ukraine, which actually fenced off from Russia.
Opening the Kiev action, his “organizer” Khodorkovsky immediately noticed that it was not easy to come to Kiev, since it is obvious, quote:
That is, at the congress, right away (actually before the scheduled discussion of the dialogue topics) they found "switchmen". It turns out that we are to blame for all the troubles - the population of Russia, for it is precisely our insanity. And the congress in Kiev, thanks to the representatives of the progressive intelligentsia listed above, should cure the Russians of this ailment.
“Strelochnikov” determined, now you can, as they say, and go to the dialogue.
We present several topics, discussion of which, in the opinion of the true organizers of the congress, should draw a “road map”. Topics are presented on Khodorkovsky site.
And the apogee of "freedom of speech":
With such topics, high-quality dialogue between Russia and Ukraine is guaranteed! And what a beautiful "road map" will be released - beyond words ... The prize from the State Department in the form of cookies is guaranteed to the authors of the "map".
