For the second month, people have been following the slaughter in the South-East. Now, when the media writes about the retreat of the militia of New Russia to the capitals of the people's republics, many rejoice in their bright naivety: “this bloodshed will stop”.
Some rejoice over another kind of naivety. It sounds like this to them: “It would be quicker. Let even this militia be erased as a powder, if only it were possible to fly to Kiev again, do business, on the Internet these stupid wars are over, it’s impossible to read the tape already. ”
Judging by the reaction, people do not quite understand what this war is all about, who is at war with whom and what does Russia have to do with it.
The picture in the minds of many compatriots who are trying to “think for themselves” without reliance on knowledge - as a result, a specific one is formed.
This is the standard of independent thinking that despises knowledge, People’s Artist of the USSR Oleg Basilashvili says: “I don’t understand what exactly they are fighting for ... I don’t understand what goals the so-called rebels achieve ... Why do these people resist?” Maybe stop shooting, guys - what are you fighting for? No, they are shooting again ... We must stop this slaughter. In place of the rebels, I would go out on a high hill, pick up weapon, put it on the ground and shouted: “Brothers, everything! We stop shooting. Stop it too. Let's sit down, talk ... ".
We will not discuss this particular Basilashvili here, but this interview and these words are very significant. So thinks a huge number of people. Well, try to ask your friends this question: “What is the militia fighting for?” Shrug their shoulders.
Why did this happen?
The beginning of the conflict - the notorious non-signing of the association - occurred at the end of November. It turns out that for the eighth month we are closely watching how the fraternal people in the brotherly land turn up some completely non-brotherly affairs. First, we followed the euromaidan twitter, then we watched the Berkut fighters burn alive, then we watched the video “We will never be brothers”, then the first corpses on Maidan went, then the Crimea, then Southeast rose, then the tragedy in Odessa, then there were the election of Poroshenko and the so-called ATO. There are many events, the situation explodes, then flows sluggishly without change, in any case it is difficult and painful to look at it. But no matter how worried we are, for eight months to keep a close watch on this disgrace and still keep in mind the whole logical chain, the whole history events with all the details are incredibly difficult. And last but not least - psychologically hard. Apparently, in the minds of some citizens happened news drawdown. The role, place and history of the militia in this conflict was simply lost in a heap of other events.
Maybe this is a media flaw, but today it turns out that the bright side of the opposition initially supported by the majority of Russians is the one that was against Maidan, against the fascists, Bandera and Sashko Bilogo, against the degenerate leaders of Maidan, the one that was burned in Odessa and which was squirted tear gas in a paddy wagon in Zaporozhye, - today it gets on its neck a label of terrorists who are bothering something and because of which whole regions are trying to wipe off the earth.
Let us remember who the “so-called rebels” are, where these people came from and what they are fighting for.
Paragraph 1. Where did the Resistance come from
The east of Ukraine from the very beginning did not support the Maidan movement. You can even say that the Maidan itself, as it could, disowned the relationship with the East. The Maidan of the European hobbits, as he could, presented himself separately from "Colorado, Vatniki, slaves, Lugandons and Donbaras". This is even evidenced by the fact that all the dogs for any provocations on the Maidan were hanged on some “titushki from Donetsk”. The East, too, was in no hurry to subscribe to the demolition of monuments and fascist slogans - as if the all-Ukrainian aspirations of the unrecognized Euro-NATO independent power were. As under the leadership of boxers, fascists, criminals and other Yatsenyuk. Under the curtain of the Sochi Olympics, we saw the first deaths on the Maidan and the formal seizure of state power by protesters. The junta proclaimed itself power and became officially known as the junta. In response, Southeast rose.
That is, in a country where a group of armed persons threw off a legitimate president and called themselves power, the other half of the country suddenly showed up, as if completely disagreeing with the results of standing on the squares.
Think about it: the official legitimate power has been dropped, there is no power in a single country, just like a single country itself, but the putschists declare themselves divorcing and claim to establish power in that part of the country that initially opposed the coup.
Of course, this second half of the country will be entitled to consider itself, if not the heir of a lost state, then a full-fledged subject in terms of establishing its power over its people on its territory. Ukro-hobbits didn’t want to put up with it, and the Maidan movement urgently sent punitive detachments from “Pravosek” to put pressure on the root of the attempts absolutely absolutely justified in such a situation to resist the situation in a supposedly united state.
Paragraph 2. How Armed Resistance
If you remember (if you do not remember, the chronicle is presented here), the East has risen in the format of peaceful assemblies and the peaceful nomination of its popular leaders. Attempts to display the people's will immediately choked with scumbags from the "Right Sector" with all the consequences. Militants attacked meetings, tent cities, knit protest leaders, firing out injuries. And all this is under the flag of the junta allegedly established as the official power, with the blocking of information sources, dances in the Rada, circus military mobilization, criminal cases of separatism and nods to Western partners. It was at this moment that the residents of the East, who were officially free from the putsch power, understood that they would not be left alone, they would crush and punish. Here, in response to the fascist storming and howling of the junta, the seizures of buildings of law enforcement agencies, militia charges, armaments and civil war began.
Thus, today's bearded men with machine guns are people who, in a situation of complete powerlessness, dared to defend the right of their people to self-determination. These are people who do not want to have anything in common with the pro-Western putsch, the fascists and the oligarchs who have cleverly crushed all this fuss. And the same company forced them to take the automata in their hands, which became enraged by the fact that some eastern rabble was not happy with the results of the coup, that there was not enough to give half a liter for non-Ukrainians from the East for titushnicia, and they want, you see, referendums, federalization and people's governors .
Paragraph 3. What are they fighting for
Now let's see what joy awaits us in the case of the long-awaited plum of the New Russia and the much-desired (there will be peace! Peace!) Defeat of the militia.
After the surrender of Novorossia and the defeat of the militias, the new Ukraine, led by the oligarch president, turns into a new anti-Russia, hypertrophied in all directions, Poland. This new hyper-Poland will not be quiet for 20 for years to spoil us with scientific conferences and polls in Western “councils of nations”, and on the same day it will bring to life the most terrible foreign policy decisions for us. This hyper-Poland will be twice as large, on our borders, ideologically prepared for the realization of all national complexes, - it has no other ideas at all, apart from hostility with us. Its top will be absolutely guaranteed security in the West, and its population will have nothing to lose.
And yet this new Poland will very much want to take away our peninsula in the Black Sea, which has gone to it in a bureaucratic manner when there was still no difference between it and us. She will also be very eager to lie under our strategic adversary the United States, making him any concessions at the expense of any benefits. And we cried all the established gas exports to Europe, the trade-offs built over the years, trade relations, draft treaties, economic stability, guarantees and prosperity, which today is hampered by the division of children with machine guns at our borders.
The militia is the last frontier before the start of the implementation of such a scenario. The last frontier before the transformation of the next neighbor, culturally, geographically and geographically, into another Euro-less-integrated post-Soviet republic. The final frontier before the discharge of the Eurasian reintegration project that is vital for the Russian world. Yes, in the case of the discharging of the New Russia, the bloodshed will be stopped, and this is a definite plus and joy. However, as soon as the last militia folded the machine, the other end of this joy will start firing at us.
