To the accompaniment of a roar tank engines and the roar of artillery cannonade on the ruins of the former Ukraine, leaving behind millions of tons of crushed concrete and thousands of corpses, ideas are fighting. Even Otto von Bismarck wrote: "Always beware of building castles in the air, these buildings are the easiest to erect, but the hardest to destroy." And the trouble with what Ukraine has become is that all the erected air political castles are right-wing.
Ukraine is the ideology of social regress
Ukrainians became the quintessence of Euromaidan air castle, an ideology of social regression that is extremely attractive to the masses. It was not by chance that representatives of the western, central and northern regions of the regions of Ukraine were most actively on Independence Square. The trouble of these regions is that they are de-industrialized, there are practically no large industrial enterprises left in them, especially machine-building industries. The result of de-industrialization was the return of society to the agrarian way of thinking. Residents of these lands did not see any benefit from the state, as they did not observe signs of its constructive activity: seeing a tractor moving down from a conveyor belt or a rocket leaving a workshop in Western Ukraine is as difficult as finding a penguin in Siberia. And if there are no signs of positive activity of the state, even if it is steeped in corruption, then there is no need to protect it. Moreover, the corrupt officials became the symbol of Ukraine, which, as adherents of Maidan believed, can be thrown off without any side effects for the country and can be replaced by honest people. Simply put, a resident of Western Ukraine at a certain moment ceased to distinguish between the state and the corrupt official, identifying them, which resulted in the dismantling of the monster, which was called Ukraine.
The situation was somewhat different in the south-east of the country, where machine-building manufactures and large industrial enterprises remained, albeit in a fairly battered form. Work on them disciplines a person, makes him an element of a complex social structure, the existence of which is impossible without a state, even if it is crooked, and even with the enticed official in charge. It is impossible, if only because it is the state that provides stability and allows, at the very least, to establish industrial cooperation. Man is brought up not only through culture, but also through labor. Labor has just brought up the man of the born Novorossia, allowing him to see not only the modernized landscapes of the 17th century, which are seen by the inhabitants of Western Ukraine, but also the world being changed by means of labor.
As a result, embroidery has become a symbol of Ukrainians, and the phrase “Neither myself nor people” has become the motto. 10-kilometer-long queues of trucks at the entrance to the Crimea perfectly illustrate this motto.
It is noteworthy that lovers of embroidery deny not only the economy, the law and the ideas of humanism, but also the laws of physics. Ukraine is incompatible with progress and doomed to death. The maximum that a carrier of this idea can build is a farm with the banners of Ukrainian Nazism, guarded by a new SS division, Galichina.
Actually, this is what Ukrainian supporters have built in Ukraine. It’s just obvious that this quasi-state chimera is not viable and will collapse, killing thousands of innocent lives under its ruins.
There is no future in the past
It is still difficult to discern the signs of the state being created in the Donbass, as no distinct state and social superstructure has emerged on the ruins of Donbass. However, in the speeches of the militia leaders, words about the need to build a socialist state on the remains of Ukraine are extremely rare. Most of both current and former militia leaders are right-wing conservatives, who are extremely far from left-wing ideas. In addition, a substantial part of them are fanatical Orthodox. The author does not have anything against Orthodoxy and religions as such and understands that there are no atheists in the trenches. However, in this ideology there is a significant risk of slipping into what the adherents of Ukrainians have built, an unjust quasi-state in which there is discrimination based on national and religious grounds. For example, during the 2 International Conference “Russia, Novorossia, Ukraine: Global Problems and Challenges”, the thesis of a Dnepropetrovsk social activist sounded the thesis about the need to appoint only Russians to government posts in Novorossiya. And what should the Armenians, Georgians, Bulgarians, Greeks do in this case? To accept the fact that they were thrown to the side of life?
The trouble will be with the expansion of the boundaries of New Russia. During the years of Ukrainian independence, part of the inhabitants of the country, by ideological melting, passed from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate to the subordination of the Kiev Patriarchate. Consequently, the accession of the regions of central and northern Ukraine to the New Russia built along the lines of the Russian Empire will be accompanied by serious difficulties. A substantial proportion of the population of these regions will not perceive the representatives of New Russia. They will be mentally alien to them.
Of course, some of the problems voiced are “childhood diseases” and will pass by themselves in the course of the armed struggle, however, Novorossia has no time. Winter is ahead. Therefore, it needs to change and evolve rapidly.
Dash into the red future
The result of the civil war in Ukraine will be the growth of public demand for a socialist, "red" idea. It is characteristic that both disappointed supporters of Euromaidan and supporters of Novorossia will thirst for a just social state. Euro-Ukrainians will cure a quartet of hunger, cold, darkness and poverty. Novorossy will be unhappy with the pace of recovery of the regions destroyed by the Ukrainian army and the sharp drop in living standards.
Therefore, ideas will come to the fore:
1. Restoration of social justice and the nationalization of all assets of the Ukrainian oligarchs as the perpetrators of the civil war.
2. Recreation of industry owned by the state, since the masses will have an aggressive rejection of the oligarchy as such.
3. Creation of collective agricultural enterprises. Lone farmers in the conditions of economic collapse will go bankrupt, and the agroholdings of the oligarchs will be nationalized.
4. Restoration of the social security system.
So, what remains of Ukraine will await the renaissance of socialism, albeit with the preservation of private property and the possibility of self-realization in small commerce. However, this will be expected not only in Ukraine, but also in the Central Asian republics, which also face the danger of undermining ethno-confessional mines during the retreat of the unipolar world. And our chances of survival in the conditions of new conflicts of modernity will depend on the speed of restoring social justice, creating an ideological synthesis of Russian conservatism and socialism.
