Hello, dear forum users! I was forced to write this article by the circumstances that are taking place in the south-east of Ukraine, as well as by the putinsley position of many of our citizens.
But first, let's take a quick look.
In one sunny summer of 1914, one small Slavic young country was subjected to the aggression of its western neighbor. Artillery fire destroyed houses, killed civilians. But the capital held heroically, although the army was mostly armed only with small arms. weapons.
Russia began to appeal to the world community, trying in every way to resolve this conflict with the world. But alas. Many beautiful words of Western leaders turned only sounds. And the blood continued to flow the most real. In Russia itself, in support of the Slav brothers, meetings were held, all media appealed to the country's leadership and demanded to stand up for the brothers. And then Russia decided to push the troops to the borders of the country. But this was immediately frightened by Russia's long-time rival and began to demand explanations and an end to the “provocation”, in exchange promising to help the peace process. Russia agreed and announced the cessation of concentration of forces on the country's border. However, the situation did not change and there was no real movement towards the world. Nobody even tried to stop the aggressor. And then Russia again began to concentrate its troops. Patriotic citizens by that time had already lost their voice from shouting, demanding to protect their brothers. And then ... And then ... Then came August 1914. And then the most bloody, most brutal war of all that came before it began. This war crushed and passed through itself millions of Russian people, and those who yesterday with a torn voice demanded war and went with the flags of Russia, three or four years later, were killed in the basement of the sovereign of that country, and Russia itself was plunged into the depths of the Civil War .
History repeated, friends. I appeal to those who today say: "Well, when will we send troops to Ukraine". Are you ready to join the army, leaving his wife and children at home? Leave to fight and possibly die? Or let someone else do it? Are you ready for hardship for yourself and your family? After all, today practically the whole world is against us ...
This article is not written from panic. It is written in order to reflect on the consequences of the introduction of troops into the New Russia.
