With Germany, we could perfectly live in peace, friendship and cooperation. On the complex mechanisms of how the masters of the West were able to set off two great powers, doomed to history on a strategic alliance, you can read in the beautiful books of S. Kremlev: “Russia and Germany: Bleed! From Versailles Wilhelm to Versailles Wilson "; “Russia and Germany: together or apart? USSR Stalin and Hitler's Reich "; "Russia and Germany: The Way to the Pact".
In these works, it is shown how Russia was drawn into European problems, confronted with Germany, and how they broke off all attempts to bring the Germans and Russians closer. The Masonic circles of European countries, to which Russian Masonic lodges were subordinate, which included many prominent figures of the Russian Empire - aristocrats, dignitaries, members of the State Duma, leaders of liberal parties, military, bankers, industrialists, famous lawyers, etc., worked on for many years in order to disrupt the Russian-German alliance. They frustrated the Björk Treaty of 1905, which was signed during the meeting of Emperor Nicholas II with the German Kaiser Wilhelm II in July 1905, on board the imperial yacht Polaris. The Björk Treaty was the result of the personal diplomacy of Nicholas II and was a complete surprise for the Masonic forces. However, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Empire in 1900 — 1906, a supporter of rapprochement with France, Lamsdorf and Witte, who, judging by his activities, was one of the main agents of influence of the “financial international” in Russia, pressed the tsar and insisted that the Björk treaty with Germany has not gained real power.
Instead, Russia in 1907 was pulled into the Anglo-French military bloc. From that moment on, the suicidal war for us became only a matter of time. The West, relying on pro-Western, Masonic circles in Russia, dragged us into a great European war that did not solve indigenous, national problems and led only to the destabilization of the empire. As a result, the Russian army in 1914-1915's. rushed to the poorly prepared command of the attack on the Germans, saved France and England from defeat. Thanks to Russia, the Germans in 1914 did not take Paris and did not become masters of Western Europe, they could not turn the tide of the battle on the Western Front in their favor in the 1915-1916. It was the Russian army that defeated the Ottomans in the Transcaucasus and Persia, crushing the last remnants of the Ottoman Empire. This allowed France and England to share the "Ottoman heritage". At the same time, the "allies", when the Germans transferred their main efforts to the Eastern Front, did not hurry to help us. On the contrary, in 1915, they attempted to capture the Dardanelles that were promised to Russia.
Thus, we saved France from defeat, did not allow Germany to win the campaigns 1914-1916. Russia crushed the remnants of the military power of Turkey. As a result, the British were able to penetrate into Interfluve (Iraq) into the Arabian Peninsula, establishing long-term control over the Arab sheiks. The British, and behind them the Zionists, were able to settle in Palestine. So we dragged chestnuts out of the fire, not getting anything from it.
However, the cost of these successes was enormous. The cadre army, including the guards, bled to death in the battles with the German troops. Replenishment was no longer so reliable, many new officers were from raznochintsy, with liberal or socialist views. The soldier's mass, the peasant in its basis, did not understand the goals of the war, wanted peace and land. The further the war dragged on and the difficulties multiplied, the more people wanted peace and hated the authorities. As a result, Romanovskaya Russia gradually began to lose control over the main support of the empire - the army, which, in all previous troubles, during the uprisings and riots in general, remained loyal to the oath and the tsar. Worst of all, the generals who were in the Masonic lodges and participated in the liberal conspiracy were in the highest posts in the army.
At the same time, the debt of the Russian Empire grew at a tremendous pace. Russia became the “cash cow” allies in the Entente. Hundreds of tons of gold were spent on the purchase. weapons, ammunition, ammunition. In most cases, prices were inflated. At the same time, western companies gladly took money, but quite often they did not fulfill orders or did not fulfill them in full. Westerners dissuaded that they should first of all carry out the orders of their governments.
The West draws up plans for the dismemberment of Russia and supports the liberal conspiracy
At the same time, the West was making plans to destroy the Russian empire and divide it into spheres of influence. During the war, England and France promised to give the straits to Russia - the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, while they themselves concluded a secret treaty, according to which they mutually promised not to give the straits to Russia.
Moreover, both London and Paris (then Washington was connected to these plans) hatched plans for the dismemberment of the Russian Empire after the defeat of Germany. The Kingdom of Poland (Privislensky Territory), the Baltic States, Finland, and, if possible, Little Russia and the Caucasus, were going to be taken away from Russia. These were the great allies of Tsarist Russia. As a result, it turned out that Russia in this war was fighting not for the acquisition of new lands, but for its own dismemberment. The Western predators were going to divide Russia weakened by war and destabilized from within.
At the end of 1916, the British and French ruling circles resolved a complex issue. London and Paris were already looking forward to an early victory over Germany. It was believed that the German Empire due to lack of raw materials and food would soon capitulate. However, Russia has not yet been catastrophically weakened, as the West hoped, initiating a European war. The Russian army was still capable of successful offensive operations, fleet became even stronger than in 1914, in industry, despite all the problems, small positive shifts were outlined. As a result, in the event of victory over Germany, we would have to share with Russia, which the Western powers categorically did not want to do.
In addition, there was the threat of a separate agreement between Russia and Germany on the terms of the status quo, the prewar situation. At the same time, Berlin could easily agree to the cession of the straits to Western Armenia at the expense of Turkey. It would be a very clever move, destroying all the strategic plans of London, Paris and Washington. Unfortunately, Nicholas II and the German Kaiser Wilhelm II did not think of this before. However, in London and Paris they looked further, considering all possible options, and could not rule out such a scenario. He could become a reality in the event of a catastrophic situation in Germany, which would have had to invent non-standard moves.
In order to completely exclude the possibility of agreement between Germany and Russia and destroy the main geopolitical enemy on earth, the Russian civilization, the masters of England and France began to intensify the scenario of eliminating autocracy and establishing a republican system with “independent, democratic” leaders.
Thus, the Western powers and the “financial international” behind them solved three main tasks. Firstly, it was not necessary to share with Russia, it was excluded from the camp of the winners. Second, they excluded the possibility of preserving the German and Russian empires, and the agreements between them. Weakened by the war, the Russian and German empires would quickly recover and again became a threat to the Anglo-Saxon project of the New World Order. Thirdly, the coming to power in Russia of the “democrats”, many of whom were “brothers” on the beds of Western politicians, destabilize Russia so that it can be made a victim, take away a number of territories from it, weaken the Russian civilization as much as possible, excluding the possibility of it rebirth.
From the beginning of 1916, the British ambassador to Russia, George William Buchanan, and the French ambassador, George Maurice Palaeologus, who had extensive connections in the aristocratic, governmental and public circles of Petrograd, began to coordinate the conspiratorial activities in Russia. The British and French agents had intensive contacts with three groups of conspirators - the grand dukes, the aristocratic, the generals and the liberal-masonic.
It is worth noting that the Bolsheviks practically did not participate in all this conspiratorial activity. First, Lenin from the beginning of the war came out from defeatist positions, which led to the split of the Social Democrats. Plekhanov and other "defencists" called for the need to defend the motherland. The party did not split into several warring groups and factions that were more cursing and squabbling with each other than they were engaged in revolutionary activities. Secondly, the defeatist position led to quite severe repression by the authorities. The de facto active remaining in Russia was crushed, sent to hard labor and to exile. As a result, the Bolsheviks were on the sidelines of the political life of Russia. The small and marginal party had almost no influence on the situation in the Russian Empire. Lenin even believed that the revolution in Russia in the next few decades was impossible in principle.
Only the February Revolution freed the party activists from prisons and exile, allowed revolutionaries who sat abroad to return. And the complete helplessness and lack of talent of the Provisional Government, and the liberal measures during the war led to a total destabilization of Russia, the aggravation of all domestic issues and the growing popularity of radical parties, which had clear action programs. Only by the summer of 1917, after the complete failure of the politics of the liberals, did the Bolsheviks become a real force. However, even then they were inferior to other parties, in particular, the Social Revolutionaries (the Socialist Revolutionary Party), which relied on the peasantry.
It should be noted that there is a certain similarity between the situation with the then Russian Empire and the Russian Federation. At that time, the authorities considered the socialists to be the main evil, they were persecuted, and the real threat was from those sitting in government offices, in aristocratic salons, in the Duma, in the high command of the army, in the offices of directors of banks "liberal democrats." With the support of external forces interested in the collapse of the Russian Empire, a powerful revolutionary detachment was formed, which destroyed the old Russia. Since 1990 in the Russian Federation, the main threat was considered “Russian nationalist patriots”, mythical “Russian skinheads”, who then had practically no influence on public opinion and access to the media. Now they are talking about the mythical "Russian Maidan." However, the real threat of the Russian Federation is the bond of those who recently made a hypocritical hysteria about the death of one of the members of the “Yeltsin gang” (Nemtsov), in which the common people will not shed a single tear. This is a union of liberal opposition and Westernizers, liberals who continue to oversee Russian education, culture, economics and finance, control a large part of the media, and plan to lead Russia to slaughter, repeating the 1914-1917 scenario. With the full support of external forces who want to arrest the global crisis due to the dismemberment and robbery of the Russian civilization.
In some cases, the arrogance of Western representatives crossed all the borders. So in 1916, Buchanan openly raised with Tsar Nicholas II the question of creating a "ministry of trust", effectively putting direct political pressure on the head of Russia. In the same year, 1916, the British ambassador specially arrived in Moscow to award the highest English order of the Moscow mayor M. Chelnokov. The head of Moscow became a "peer". At the same time, he was chief of the All-Russian City Union and a high-ranking "brother." Instead of engaging in the improvement of the old Russian capital, Chelnokov regularly visited the General Headquarters, where he negotiated with the Chief of Staff of the General Headquarters of the Supreme Commander Mikhail Alekseev, who, according to the researchers, was one of the plotters or at least sympathetically concerned with the idea of a palace coup. As noted by Guchkov, with whom Alekseev was in correspondence with 1916, Alekseev "... was so informed that he became an indirect participant" of the events that were being prepared. Chelnokov negotiated with other generals.
Thanks to close contacts with the great princes and generals, Buchanan and Palaeolog had access to the most secret information in Russia and became active participants in the upcoming coup. Buchanan more specialized in contacts with conspirators from the Duma environment, bankers, industrialists and lawyers. Paleologue preferred aristocratic environment, like the salon of Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna. In addition, the French ambassador traditionally maintained contacts with the French French aristocracy. The Poles had nothing to do with the conspiracy against the tsar, as they did not have the opportunities and resources for this, but they were interested in the consequences. The pans in their dreams have already led the section of the Russian bear skin.
It is clear that the Russian special services had some information and reported to Tsar Nicholas the Second about the subversive activities of foreign ambassadors. So Anna Vyrubova later in her memoirs reported that the king had told her that Buchanan was taking an active part in the intrigues against the throne and in the embassy almost met with the great princes. However, Tsar Nicholas II did not even dare to ask the British king to recall Buchanan. “This is too harsh,” said the king. Such softness and humanism in the end and destroy the royal family and autocratic Russia.
The British Embassy became the focus of the conspiracy. He was visited by leading liberal leaders, leading members of the future Provisional Government - Prince Lvov, Milyukov, Guchkov, Rodzyanko, Maklakov and others.
Thus, against the Nicholas II, who personified the Russian autocracy, rallied the entire elite of Russia - the grand dukes, aristocrats, the top generals, many leading dignitaries and officials, the State Duma, which was dominated by liberal-minded leaders, numerous urban and industrial bourgeois organizations, bankers. The coordination of their actions was carried out by masonic lodges and embassies of the “allied countries”.
The former head of the royal family’s guards, General Spiridovich, already in exile, accused the military leadership of generals Khabalov, Alekseev, Ruzsky, Brusilov and Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolayevich of the coup. Nicholas II abdicated the throne 2 (15 March) 1917 was not at gunpoint nagan revolutionary sailors, but after questioning their own commanders of fronts and fleets (among them was the current "hero" - Kolchak). Only Khan of Nakhichevan was harshly opposed to the abdication, the rest were in favor. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that the last palace commandant of Nicholas, General Voeikov, called the general campaign led by the former commander-in-chief, the uncle of the tsar, the grand duke Nikolai Nikolayevich, to be the main culprits of the fall of the Russian monarchy. However, the constitutional Democrat Milyukov, the monarchist Shulgin and the leader of the Octobrists, the chairman of the State Duma, the landowner Rodzianko, also demanded the tsar's abdication.
So how did the Bolsheviks kill autocratic Russia? The Russian empire was killed by its degenerated, pro-Western elite, which for the sake of its narrow and personal interests ruined a great power. Someone dreamed of getting a warm place in a new constitutional monarchy, others in republican Russia, and others sincerely wanted to turn Russia into a “cozy France or Holland”. And all took advantage of external forces.
The masses, who gradually became the head of the stronger Bolsheviks and other socialists, joined the revolution later, when the royal power, which held the country together, was already destroyed. The Liberal Provisional Government turned out to be so incompetent and worthless that in a matter of months led Russia to the brink of destruction and to the Civil War. The Bolsheviks, having a goal and a program, simply took power, which lay under their feet. As a result, they saved the Russian civilization from total destruction, from invaders invaders controlled by external forces of diverse liberal-democratic, white and nationalist forces.
The Bolsheviks, whose core were simple Russian people, dreaming of creating a just society, where parasitism and exploitation would have no place (the wing of the Trotskyist internationalists also working on the external forces scenario, was not the main one and eventually suffered defeat, at least until Khrushchev's rule) , were able to create a new project - the Soviet civilization. Soviet civilization was flesh of the flesh of the Russian civilization, which embodied the best features of "old Russia". It was the Bolsheviks who connected the concept of Russian Good and Justice with socialism, creating the most effective and advanced system on the planet. As a result, it was the Bolsheviks, the Reds saved the Russian civilization.
Unfortunately, not everyone knows that during the Civil War there were practically no defenders of Tsarist, autocratic Russia. It is in vain that whites are identified with monarchists. The civil war in Russia was already between the supporters of February (the whites), born of the February revolution, various separatist nationalists, anarchist gangsters and Basmachis Islamists and the supporters of the October Revolution (the Reds). The White Army did not fight for Faith, the Tsar and the Fatherland. Monarchists among the whites were few, and they often concealed their views. So in the armies of Denikin and Wrangel, counterintelligence crushed officers' monarchist organizations. Politically, the White Army consisted of all sorts of democrats and part of the socialists, social democrats, who had been ousted by the Bolsheviks and nationalists. Elections to the Constituent Assembly in 1918 brought the socialists (Bolsheviks, Mensheviks, social revolutionaries, people’s socialists) a complete victory - 80% of votes. The people did not want the power of capitalists, merchants and landowners. However, the capitalists and liberals, who were supported by external forces, did not reconcile, they did not want to lose power. They started a civil war.
Nicholas the Second was forced to deny not the Bolshevik commissars, not the Red Guards, not the revolutionary soldiers and sailors, not the workers and peasants, but the “color of the nation” - noble, highly educated and quite financially secure people. Autocracy was destroyed by generals and ministers, grand dukes and aristocrats, bankers and lawyers, members of masonic lodges.
The ruling elite of Russia - political, parliamentary, financial and industrial, military, bureaucratic, itself crushed the Russian empire. Moreover, many high-ranking revolutionaries were at the same time freemasons, “brothers” of closed lodges and structures oriented towards the West. In these closed clubs (they have retained a certain role to the present), the interests of various groups of the ruling elite were coordinated.
In general, it was a class of Westerners who needed complete power over Russia (autocracy was a hindrance) to stop Russia into a part of European civilization. Our Westerners and Masons wanted Western "democracy", a market, such orders as in "sweet and civilized" Europe. They had power, influence, money, and partial power, but they wanted more. The Russian monarchy was, in their opinion, a "relic" that must be destroyed. They did not understand that by destroying autocracy, they themselves were destroying the main barrier on the path of the Russian turmoil, which is merciless to all, including the initiators of the storm. As a result, instead of the victory of the liberal-republican system, the ruling classes caused a catastrophe of “old Russia”.
At the same time, representatives of the Russian elite, including commercial, industrial, financial capital and the liberal intelligentsia, without realizing it (for the most part, there were "agents of influence" who worked for the West), carried out the plan of external forces. Financial International, the ruling circles of Britain, France and the United States sentenced Russia. The Russian Empire was supposed to share the fate of the defeated German Empire. The masters of the West dreamed of destroying autocracy, which could unite the forces of the Russian people, dismember Russia and subjugate its separate “independent and democratic” parts.
It should be noted that the Bolsheviks in relations with the representatives of the West were smarter than their liberal rivals. If the liberals were mainly used in the dark, destroying the monarchy with their hands, the Bolsheviks could not be held. The West tried to use all possible forces against the ruling regime, including the Bolsheviks. And the Bolsheviks, in turn, tried to adapt the West to their interests. As a result, the Bolsheviks were able to gradually push aside and partially liquidate the group of “national traitors” in their ranks - the Trotskyist internationalists. The victory was won by the Bolshevik patriots (Stalinists), who focused on building a great socialist Russia and did not intend to throw their homeland into the furnace of the “world revolution”.
