The Ukrainian general on his knees presents a saber to the former US ambassador

107
“Ukraine got on its knees. Look at this picture. What a shame, but how well it demonstrates Ukraine’s obedience to the West,” Ukrainian journalist Vladimir Skachko writes on his Facebook page today. And publishes a photo: the Ukrainian general - kneeling - hands weapon former US ambassador to Ukraine.


The Ukrainian general on his knees presents a saber to the former US ambassador

"According to custom, when they gave a saber, the one who was given was to kneel, not the one who gives. (...) Imagine: the general gives the award saber for bravery to the lieutenant and the general himself kneels and the lieutenant stands ... Absurdity! Moreover: from the knees the victor handed the personal weapon to the winner, ”explains the journalist.

He also adds: "This is generally the standard custom of surrender of both the Middle Ages and the New Age ... A beautiful illustration of the obedience of Ukrainian politicians."

Apparently, this gift is accepted by former US Ambassador to Ukraine John Tefft - a diplomat who will probably replace Michael McFaul in Russia. At least, it is his candidacy for the post of US ambassador to the Russian Federation that is called the most likely.

However, as Vestam.Ru bloggers "in the subject" explained, this photo was taken not on these May days (as one might think), but earlier - in November of 2013. That is, before the start of the most active phase of Euromaidan in Kiev. However, this does not change the essence of the matter: in the picture is really the ambassador (then still) of the United States to Ukraine, who is accepted into the “Cossacks”.

“The photo you see captured the key moment when Kozak was receiving the glorious monk of Pan John Tefft, the good Baptist and the US ambassador to Ukraine,” says a commentary on this photo on one of the Ukrainian portals.

    The paradox is that Ukraine, in fact, is a Nazi state, where militants took power in the streets.
    For international uncles and aunts, there are "yaytsenyuki" -chikariki.
    And it became Nazi for over 20 years.
    What is happening there today is just a consequence. Allegedly, as a joke, in the form of Bandera, they rehearsed songs of the USSR with lyrics glorifying Bandera, Shukhevych and Explicitly with lyrics of Russophobic-racist content. And NONE of the human rights defenders made a fuss about it.
    They were given the right to speak on TV.

    “For me it is important that John Paul Johnson established friendly relations with the Cossacks not only as a military leader and commander, but exclusively on a personal level and he was even dedicated to the Cossack fraternity,” he said.

    He spoke about John Paul Jones and handed over copies of two biographical books about the American hero, translated into Ukrainian and published in Ukraine, to the leadership of the city and region.

    “I hope that the ties established 225 years ago will develop for the benefit of our two peoples,” Mr. Ambassador emphasized.

    Presentation of weapons to the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary
    Of the United States of America to Ukraine John Tefft in honor of the merits of the founder of the naval
    US Navy John Paul Jones, who took the Cossack oath 226 years ago and then served
    Rear Admiral of the Russian Imperial Fleet. June 16 and 17, 1788 during the Russian-Turkish
    war in the Dnieper-Bug estuary, the battle of Liman took place. It was on this day that the Cossack rowing
    flotilla under the command of Sidor Bely and Antin Golovaty under cover of a sailing squadron
    Rear Admiral John Paul Jones destroyed the remains of Turkish ships blocked near Ochakovo.

    Once again I want to bring to the attention of the Russians — I had to create enterprises, research institutes in Ukraine, starting from 1964 of the year. In the 80 years, on behalf of the Government of the USSR, he led from Odessa military tests of the 3's military districts and the Black Sea Fleet. But I did not expect that I would live to such a shame, which is presented in the photo. I did not expect such a shame when military pilots from the SU-25 attack aircraft and MI-24 army helicopters destroy their people. In Russia, tankers who shot at the house of the Supreme Council two years later were all killed. Ukrainian pilots, this fate is waiting for you, change your mind. Life is given once and in advanced years, if you live up to them, you will be sad. I have the honor

    I am sorry for the real patriots of this country, their country has not yet descended below. When the entire political top is controlled from the United States, and openly. In other matters, Ukraine is no longer there, there is a western one that wants to the west, an eastern one to Russia, the south of the country just to live normally. These people will not be able to live in one country anymore, people are very different, the war is already underway

    I look at this general, it seems that he is not Russian, but he probably started it back in our Soviet army .. As Gleb Zheglov said: “Because of you, black sheep, the bandits will think that they can scare the Murovite .. "

        when I came to serve in the army we were always told that a Russian soldier kneels only in two cases: 1) when he kisses his native flag and 2) when he kisses his mother’s hand ..... and the ancient ukrov apparently have different traditions
