Recently, the Internet has a lot of all sorts of slander against I. Strelkov, the Minister of Defense of the DPR, against the army of Novorossia, especially the "Slavic detachment", which for months held back the onset of an entire regular army. Moreover, part of the slander applies to his associates. The well-known “couch strategist” Kurginyan, for example, saw a certain “conspiracy” in the fact that Strelkova was deliberately promoting PR in order to make it a “dictator of Russia”, a kind of “new Lebed”. Moreover, for this, in his congenial opinion, the militia allegedly intended ... to shoot down the plane with Putin, but they got into the Malaysian Boeing. Such "analysts" completely ignore reality, hysterically accusing the fighters from the front line of "treason" from their posh cabinets.
To comment on this conspiracy insanity, in fact, do not even want. But still, since deception can somehow affect people who are not aware of the situation, I can tell you why my friends were in the squad at Strelkov, for which I respect and support him. And why we are his "PR".
I must say at once that small and large Moscow swindlers who call themselves "political technologists and public figures" are not completely insincere in such lamentations. When they scream about the "conspiracy" around Strelkov, about some mysterious PMCs and PR people who allegedly support him, when they write that the content of his squad, as well as the pool of journalists supporting him, must be worth a lot of money, they are quite sincere in their perplexity . The fact that honor, conscience, however, ideological motivation is still present among millions of people does not fit into the weak brains of the selling Moscow zhlobatni. Such "spin doctors" will never believe in mass heroism, in the fact that people went to risk themselves for free. However, it is such fighters and commanders who surround Strelkov, cowards have long fled, looters shot or demoted.
I will say that I know, although it sounds utterly unthinkable for this Moscow tusn. Fighters and journalists Strelkova, for the most part, are volunteers. For participation in hostilities, they had never before received any fixed salary, nor social benefits in case of death, or injury. Sometimes the commanders paid some miser to the soldiers if the sponsors made donations. And usually - no. Even the uniform of the fighters often have to buy at their own expense. We are trying to get out of the situation, in the event of the death of a fighter by collecting voluntary donations for his family, but all this is very unstable. Only this month, they began to give some money for wages, and even that is very modest, considering all the risks and deprivations. And yet, the army of Novorossia is at war with the many-time superior forces of Kiev terrorists, and its exploits are reported by a pool of war correspondents from the Militia headquarters and honest journalists around the world. Unlike some pseudo-militia of Donetsk, the “Slavs” do not engage in looting, for this is a very strict punishment. And, moreover, all the crooks and rogues fled from Slavyansk during the very first strong battles, even if they managed to escape punishment, as I said.
The blunt little heads of pseudo-patriotic political technologists, mired in corruption schemes, do not fit into the fact that for defending Orthodoxy and the unity of Russia, in defense of their land from fascism, can go to war for so many people for nothing. In defense of that Orthodoxy and the Russian idea, which they, the “great postmodernists,” are secretly considered a dying museum relic. And they do not even consider it necessary to study, having ideas about Orthodoxy at the level of a Soviet lecturer at the district level.
But the point, of course, is not only in the idea of the army of New Russia, but also in the person of the Commander-in-Chief. She also attracts people.
The gunners are fighting a volunteer already in the fourth war. Although, if we count the Crimea, then on the fifth. After all, the annexation of the Crimea was not easy, and several of our children died there. I had the honor to see him in the case as part of the forces of the Crimean self-defense, when his detachment also participated in armed clashes. There he was the first to grab the machine gun and go to work, not hiding behind the backs of his subordinates, but closing them with himself.
He is a man of the Russian Orthodox idea, a loyal comrade, disciplined, courageous and competent leader. That's why they follow him. Including me, even though I have quite a few children, even though my whole family was nervous because of my departure for the war, I refused to get a fairly high-paying job in the Crimea. But it is embarrassing to sit "on the south" when your comrades die at the front, when for the first time in almost a hundred years a truly Orthodox army has been formed, defending the interests of the unity of Holy Russia. I believe the commander, I consider him worthy and dedicated. As they say, he does not take bribes, he is insulting to the power ...
At the same time, Strelkov does not like when he is praised in the media. I hope my article does not fall into his eyes because of the huge employment. I myself do not have the habit of praise, but I have to state these facts. We are for Holy Russia, we are against the fascist're coming out, and we trust the commander in chief — that is the basis of the motivation of the core of the militia.
Back in the winter of this year in Kiev, during the period of Maidan, we discussed issues of the coming civil war in Ukraine. Sometimes they argued, I rested on the informational and political aspects, he - on the military. But, of course, we differed only in trifles in assessing the situation. We were united in the main thing - the need to work together to protect Russia from the fascists.
Sadly smiled at the naivety of the unfortunate Maidan "Raguli", which the oligarchs drove to the slaughterhouse for their interests. It is necessary to think about the consequences of their actions, especially - participation in the coup. When ordinary Maidans joyfully jumped on the Maidan, studied English, waited for a European “paradise”, I quietly bought 7,62 caliber cartridges, bayonet knives, body armor, for I knew exactly what this crazy Maidan joy would end in — the civil war. We did not unleash it, but the terrorists who, by means of a coup and killings, came to power. The regions of Ukraine are only protected from the criminal “power” of the Kiev terrorists, who tried to ban their language, and now they are bombing and shooting peaceful districts from the howitzers.
And about the first, and about the second Maidan, in terms of the expectations of their extras, I made an exact diagnosis - crap. No entry into the EU, the destruction of corruption, and other expectations could not come true. For it is - nonsense.
Here is my interview of the beginning of February next to the "Berkuts" - I predicted the onset of pro-American puppets during the Sochi Olympics, and in the event of their victory - a war. Bandera's not happy idiots make a decision, but their Western curators, and I understand their logic:
Igor Ivanovich in this regard is a more experienced person than me. He supplemented me with the words that he saw civil wars in many regions, and everywhere they started in much the same way as in Kiev - with the riots organized by pro-Western puppets. And he firmly said that he would try to protect the population from the fascists, even if they had to die. Strelkov draw a kind of killer - a maniac, but he just loves his faith and homeland, and is ready to sacrifice their lives for them.
In our time of decline, there are few people who would be able to rush into battle, putting their position and life at risk. That is, such people are often found among people of the social “bottom”, of poorly educated people who have nothing to lose except their chains, and who know little and know how. But to a highly educated, highly competent person personally put himself at risk - this is a huge rarity.
Such things are made out of love for people, and not out of hatred towards them, as fascists frighten us. Just as children's books are written out of love - I. Strelkov is the author of many fairy tales, children's stories, laureate of awards in this field.
Therefore, the army of Novorossia will win over the fascists, because they (the fascists) are motivated by hatred and self-interest, and the Militias are love.
