Ax and bullet against the words: the murder of writers in Ukraine

16 on April 2015 in the vicinity of 13.20 h. Oles Buzin was shot dead in the Ukrainian capital. A famous writer and journalist was killed near his own house - on Degtyarevskaya Street, 58. Unlike many opponents of the Kiev authorities, the elder did not leave the Ukrainian capital. Apparently, he didn’t believe to the last that the regime would allow such a daring and demonstrative murder. But the profession of “person with a pen,” especially if the pen writes things that are unfavorable for official Kiev, is very risky in modern Ukraine. It is not necessary to come under the shelling of the Ukrainian artillery in the cities and villages of Novorossia — you can also give up life in “peaceful” Kiev.

Elderberry - the martyr of the Russian world

Oles Alekseevich Buzin was an interesting and straightforward author. He was not ill with either Ukrainian chauvinism, nor extra-dimensional “imperial”. According to Elderberry, Ukrainians, or Little Russians, have always been part of the triune Russian people (Great Russians, Little Russians, Belarusians). At the same time, Buzin did not deny his Ukrainian identity, considering himself equally Russian and Little Russia. For him, in modern conditions, Ukraine seemed to be a bilingual federal state. Naturally, Buzin never supported modern Ukrainian chauvinists, he was very critical of religious symbols of Ukrainian nationalism like Taras Shevchenko. For Shevchenko, the writer nearly lost his freedom - according to the denunciation of the “National Union of Writers of Ukraine”, the prosecutor’s office investigated the publication of the book “Ghoul Taras Shevchenko”. Elder was accused of inciting hostility towards the Ukrainian nation. But at that time, Ukrainian justice had not yet lost the remnants of common sense, so the writer's actions were assessed as harmless, and he himself came under an amnesty, and did not become a political prisoner. However, for the nationalists and the pro-Western liberals cooperating with them, the Buzin has always been the target of attacks. Thus, in 2009, an activist of the organization “Femen”, famous for its hologrud shares, threw a cake at Oles Buzinu, whom she called a “sexist”. Repeatedly the elder was exposed to more serious attacks. So, in May of the same 2009, the National Expert Commission of Ukraine on the protection of public morality (that's how!) Organized a monitoring of the print media in order to identify "immoral" publicists and publications. Naturally, that paid attention to the Elderberry. He was accused of “discrediting prominent Ukrainian leaders”. However, the 11 lawsuit writer won.

All the “cream” of the pro-Western Ukrainian political scene — the ultra-right nationalists, femenists from Femen, liberal human rights activists and advocates for the rights of sexual minorities — rallied against Elderberry. The writer provoked their hatred with his caustic publications, but for the time being it was impossible to do anything with him within the framework of Ukrainian legislation. So they threw cakes, later they just attacked, and 16 of April killed them. It is noteworthy that shortly before the murder, on a certain site “Peacemaker” information appeared with personal data of Oles Buzina, including, including, his home address and telephone number. Recall that this site contains thousands of people on 32 - politicians, writers, journalists, journalists who are in opposition to the Kiev regime and criticize the ideology and practice of Ukrainian nationalism. The appearance of the personal data of Elderberry is difficult to characterize otherwise than as direct incitement to violence against the writer - if not to murder, but to commit criminal acts against the oppositionist. The writer is still killed. He was only 45 years old.

Responsibility for the murder of Olesya Elder was taken over by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. It is likely that this is - fake organization, too, the name she chose herself saying. But the fact that Oles Buzin was hated by the regime entrenched in Kiev leaves no doubt. Of course, Petro Poroshenko expressed condolences to the relatives and friends of the deceased and demanded an objective investigation. Representatives of the UN and the OSCE, the United States expressed their condolences and demands for the investigation. However, these are only regular phrases. There is no sincerity in them, and there can be no - for the USA, the West as a whole, Oles Buzin has always remained an opponent. “He came here, to Russia, and accomplished the feat, not allowing the united Slavic world to fall apart. Oles knew very well that he would be punished for this, because he preached unity after the monstrous crematorium in Odessa, after the bombings of Lugansk and Donetsk, after the arrests in Kharkov. He knew, but he still preached. Therefore, I believe that he is a martyr ”- these words of the remarkable Russian writer Alexander Prokhanov, published in the“ Tomorrow ”newspaper, perfectly convey the essence of Oles Elder's life and death.

Do not forget that the murders of the word masters have become, in a way, the hallmark of Ukrainian nationalists. Over the course of a century, advocates of “separatism” destroy the color of the Ukrainian intelligentsia. The only fault of the murdered writers, poets, journalists, philosophers is that they had a different view on the fate of Ukraine, considered it belonging to the Russian world and should develop together with Russia and Belarus, but not in the West.

Critic of the UPA "fell" from the stairs

The assassination of Oles Buzina is a demonstrative action that shows all opponents of Ukrainian nationalism what the warriors of the trident are ready to do in their desire to please the West. Until recently, however, the Russophobic forces did not dare to commit such demonstrative crimes. They preferred to kill "quietly", with the opportunity to present everything as an accident or suicide. So, in 1999, Vitaly Maslovsky died under strange circumstances. Vitaly Ivanovich by the time of his tragic death was already a middle-aged man for 64 years. Doctor historical Sciences, a writer, in 1990 he published a book about the history of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, in which he revealed many hard-hitting facts about the activities of the "Bandera". Naturally, in independent Ukraine, Vitaly Ivanovich was left without work. Only the pension of a disabled person from the Great Patriotic War helped him survive. Maslovsky was a native of the Kovel district of the Volyn region, until the end of his days he lived in Lviv, but in his spirit he belonged to the Russian world, adhered to the idea of ​​the need for the unity of Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians and actively participated in the activities of the Russian movement in Western Ukraine. The historical research of Vitaly Maslovsky aroused particular hatred on the part of Ukrainian nationalists.

In 1999, his book “With whom and against whom Ukrainian nationalists fought during the Second World War” was published, which, of course, it was impossible to print on the territory of Ukraine. However, excerpts from the study were in the Lviv press. Maslovsky wrote that “brought up by foreign culture traders, Galician nationalists are now striving to become mentors and carriers of culture for the whole of Ukraine. Galician fundamentalism becomes an exclusively militant ideology of the newest integral nationalists, they want to impose it as a model on all the people of Ukraine, to force everyone to fulfill its dogmas ”(Maslovsky, VI With whom and against whom Ukrainian nationalists fought during the Second World War). That was enough for the nationalists to remember Maslovsky again. Open threats fell to the scientist. But Maslovsky did not give up. In the second half of 1999, he prepared for publication another study on the role of Ukrainian nationalists in the Holocaust. The nationalist organizations of Lviv region could no longer forgive the historian - after all, the reminder of the Holocaust and the role of the “OUNists” in it extremely negatively affects the image of Ukrainian nationalists in the world, contributes to rejecting from them a significant and authoritative part of the liberal establishment, including financiers, many of whom people who lost relatives during the Holocaust.

October 26 The 1999 historian Vitaly Ivanovich Maslovsky was found unconscious at the entrance of his own house. 27 October he passed away. According to official data, the professor's death was caused by a head injury and a fracture of the cervical spine, resulting from a fall in the stairwell span. Apparently, the professor was dropped from the stairs or killed and thrown from the stairs by his opponents. However, Maslovsky’s wife, who was most likely pressured, asked not to open a criminal case. Therefore, the official version of the death of the professor was an accident. Despite the fact that the Russian organizations in Western Ukraine did not believe in the “natural causes” of the death of the famous historian and appealed to the law enforcement authorities and the authorities of the country to understand all the details of the incident, the death of Vitaly Ivanovich Maslovsky was never investigated. Up to the present, it remains one of the "secrets" of the history of the elimination by nationalist forces of their political, scientific and literary opponents and critics.

Yaroslav Galan - since childhood together with Russia

Perhaps the most famous Ukrainian writer who fell at the hands of nationalists was Yaroslav Galan. The name of Yaroslav Aleksandrovich Galan is inscribed in golden letters in the history of Russian-Ukrainian relations in the cultural field. Without exaggeration, it can be called the last of the great Russophiles of Galicia. During the twentieth century, the pro-Russian movement in Galicia, which was once very numerous and authoritative, could not imagine the life of Eastern European Slavs without a great Russia, without Russian culture and Russian, turned out to be almost completely destroyed, first by repressions of the Austro-Hungarian and Polish authorities, then by the Hitlerites and, finally, their own tribesmen - Galicians, who took the side of the West and finally lost their historical memory.

Jaroslav Galan was born in the small town of Dyniv, now part of Poland, 27 July 1902. His father was a petty employee, which helped Yaroslav get an education first in school and then in the gymnasium of the city of Przemysl. Since childhood, Galan has known all the "charms" of life in the Uniate region of Galicia. The school was taught by Greek Catholic priests who were imposing the cult of the Pope. Galan, who learned a critical attitude toward Uniatism from school, repeatedly recalled this in his literary works:

“Once a pan-father asked me:
- Why do we call the Holy Father Pius?
I answered ingenuously:
- Because the holy father loves to drink.
I did not have time to come to my senses when my belly found itself on my priest’s knee, and the sacred rod had carved the ten commandments on my body. ” (Galan Ya.A. I spit on my father).

Pro-Russian sentiments were characteristic of the whole Galanov family. In fact, Yaroslav became a worthy and most famous successor of family traditions. His father Alexander, at the beginning of World War I, was sent to the Talelhof concentration camp. Tens of thousands of Rusyns were brought here from all over Galicia - all those who supported Russia or were suspected of sympathizing with the “Russian world”. So the Austro-Hungarian regime struggled with the pro-Russian sentiment among the population of Galicia. Apparently, in Galan senior the Austro-Hungarians saw a dangerous Russophile, which cost him his freedom. Galan's family was evacuated to Rostov-on-Don. By the way, many refugees from Polish lands settled in Rostov, and the University of Warsaw was transferred here in 1915, to which the history of Rostov State University (RSU, now SFU - South Federal University) - one of the largest and most authoritative universities in the South of Russia goes. Rostov-on-Don still keeps the memory of the years when young Galan was here - one of the streets is named after the writer.

Ax and bullet against the words: the murder of writers in Ukraine

A return to a peaceful life after the end of World War allowed Galan to complete his gymnasium education and go abroad to study. Since his young years were spent in Poland, which included the lands of Galicia after the Civil War, Galan had the opportunity to study in Europe, which he did not fail to use, having gained invaluable experience of observing life in various European countries. He went to Trieste, where he studied at the Graduate School of Trade, and studied at universities in Vienna and Krakow. At the University of Vienna, young Galán chose the Faculty of Slavic Philology - he was drawn to literature, but he was even more attracted by the great dream of the cultural and political unity of Eastern Slavic peoples. As a student, Galan, very skeptical of Galician nationalism, Polish power and Catholicism, began to show sympathy for socialism. Gradually, he turned to direct participation in radical left-wing underground organizations. In those years, many pro-Russian Galicians shifted to communist positions, seeing in the Soviet Union the heir of great Russia and, as they thought, intercessor of Galician Russia before supporters of its Polonization or “Ukrainization”. Especially strange for the pro-Russian Galician intelligentsia was the course of the Soviet government to "Ukrainize" the population, which was part of the Ukrainian SSR. In fact, the Soviet Union continued the Austro-Hungarian line on the creation of Ukrainian political identity, while the Galician Russophiles believed that Ukrainians, Belarusians and Russians were a triune Slavic people. Of course, the influence of the USSR did its job and many of the Galician Russophiles, including Galan himself, began to define themselves as Ukrainians, went down in history as figures of Ukrainian literature and journalism.

Communism and Russophilism

Yaroslav Galan was one of the founders of the literary group Gorno, created by 12 in May 1929 (the group of Western Ukrainian proletarian writers Gorno), which declared itself as a Marxist literary organization. This group included a number of left-wing Galician writers who combined literary activities with a political struggle against Galician nationalism. Naturally, the group instantly made enemies not only among nationalists, but also among representatives of the Polish authorities. When mass repressions against the opposition began in 1933 in Poland, the group was forced to cease to exist. Many of its participants were in the dungeons of the Polish regime. Jaroslav Galan was subjected to repeated harassment. After all, the majority of his works carried a pronounced political orientation, criticized the Polish government, the Galician nationalists, the Catholic and Uniate churches. In 1934 and 1937 Jaroslav Galan was imprisoned. He was not afraid to take part in the tragic 16 demonstration on April 1936, held in Lviv. For some reason, now the advocates of democracy and supporters of Euromaidan prefer not to recall that the Polish police did not treat the demonstrators with affection. Thirty Lviv workers were killed during the shooting of the demonstration, about two hundred people were injured of varying degrees of severity.

End of 1930's became a vague and difficult time for the Galician communists. On the one hand, the Polish regime, which increasingly intensified authoritarian and even fascist tendencies, tightened repression against the communist movement, especially in Western Ukraine, because it saw in Galician communists conductors of Soviet influence in the region. On the other hand, the Soviet leadership dealt a blow to the Communist Party of Western Ukraine (KPZU). Recall that the Communist Party of Western Ukraine was established in 1919 as the Communist Party of Eastern Galicia, and in 1923, it received the name by which it became most famous in history. From the very beginning, in the CPZU, tendencies opposing the CPSU (b) rate emerged, which could not but irritate the Soviet leadership, who was seeking to completely subordinate the party to its influence. Thus, in 1927, most of the leaders of the Central Committee of the KPZU supported the “national bias” in the CP (b) U. After Lazar Kaganovich, who at that time held the post of general secretary of the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of Ukraine, was outraged by the behavior of the “sponsored” Western Ukrainian communists, the CPCU split. into two parts. Pro-Soviet activists were in the minority, and the majority were supporters of the "national deviation." The latter were excluded from the Comintern and were deprived of all support of the Soviet government, which at the end of 1928 forced the leaders of the “national-deviationist” KPZU to repent of their mistakes. However, on arrival in the USSR, they were repressed. Gradually, the fully pro-Soviet course was established in the KPZU, but the leadership of the All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks), who was oriented toward the inclusion of Western Ukraine into the USSR, no longer needed an independent Galician Communist Party. In 1938, the Communist Party of Western Ukraine was dissolved - along with the Communist Party of Western Belorussia and the Communist Party of Poland. Many prominent leaders of the KPZU were repressed, but a number of Galician communists continued to work in the Soviet party and state bodies.

Yaroslav Galan has always held expressly pro-Soviet positions, for which he gained respect in the Soviet Union. It is known that Galan was favored by Joseph Stalin himself. When the Great Patriotic War began, Yaroslav Galan went to the front as a front-line newspaper correspondent, worked as a special correspondent for the Sovetskaya Ukraine newspaper. The main object of the bright and accusatory criticism of Yaroslav Galan were Ukrainian nationalists from anti-Soviet organizations. He knew the essence of Ukrainian nationalism well, perfectly understanding the nuances of the history and ideology of Ukrainian nationalists, Yaroslav Galan became one of the most dangerous for the OUN people of the Soviet propagandists. By the way, in 1946, it was Yaroslav Galan who was privileged to represent the newspaper Sovetskaya Ukraine at the Nuremberg Trials.

Among representatives of Ukrainian Soviet literature, Yaroslav Galan held a special place. Unlike many Ukrainian writers, only hiding behind the ideas of Soviet internationalism, but in reality they were convinced nationalists and even Russophobes, kept in the old Austro-Hungarian leaven, Galan remained precisely a representative of the Russophile trend in Ukrainian literature. Perhaps he was the only Galician Russophile, fully integrated into the Soviet literature. In the Soviet Union, as is known, there was a ban on the true history of the phenomenon of Ukrainization. In fact, the Soviet leadership, as already noted above, continued the policy of Ukrainization, which was begun in Austria-Hungary. Moreover, not only the population of Western Ukraine’s lands, but also the inhabitants of Little Russia and New Russia, were incorporated into this policy in the Soviet period. Naturally, the concept of the origin of the “Ukrainian identity” as a political construct of the Austro-Hungarian authorities was ignored in order to incite anti-Russian sentiments in Galicia, in the Soviet Union. Yaroslav Galan was perhaps the only writer, at least of the level that the idea of ​​the artificiality of separation into Russians and Ukrainians carried out in his works, emphasized the unity of the Eastern Slavs and the significance of Russia for the entire East Slavic world.

The words of Galan, which he wrote many decades ago, today, unfortunately, are very topical: “History, especially the history of the last 30 years, taught us, in particular, that love for Moscow is love for Ukraine, and hating Moscow means hating Ukraine The long way from Hrushevsky to Bandera rezunov, but - the same. Hrushevsky and his Central Rada relied on the bayonets of Wilhelm II, the Bandera and the millers - on Hitler's bayonets. Today, the nationalist mob unravels the bellies of Galician children in praise of their next masters from the West. They only change tactics, and the methods remain the same: methods of betrayal, provocation. ” As if about 2014-2015. Yaroslav Galan wrote - he so aptly and accurately describes the activities of Ukrainian nationalists, reveals their true owners, who constructed Ukrainian nationalism itself and its entire history of sending nationalists against Russia and those representatives of the Ukrainian people who do not see the point in breaking with the Russian world.

Ax killed only the body, but not the word

As is well known, during the years of the Great Patriotic War, nationalist armed formations intensified in Western Ukraine. Some of the Ukrainian nationalists openly supported Hitler and served in the German divisions, the other pretended to be both opponents of Hitler and Stalin and allegedly fought on two fronts, but in fact, she performed the tasks of British and American intelligence to weaken the Soviet positions in Ukraine. Therefore, in 1944, when the Soviet troops began the liberation of the territory of Western Ukraine from the Nazis, battles were also fought against the detachments of Ukrainian nationalists united in the “Ukrainian Insurgent Army”. After the Victory in the Great Patriotic War in the territory of Western Ukraine, the anti-Soviet armed struggle of the rebel groups of Ukrainian nationalists continued. The Soviet Union managed to defeat the Nazis and their allies, but the Galician lands became a hotbed of armed resistance, the ideology of which remained Ukrainian nationalism of Russophobic disguise disguised as anti-communist "clothes", and the funding was provided by American and British special services. The epicenter of the anti-Soviet armed underground was in the lands of Galicia. Here there were powerful organizations of Ukrainian nationalists, against which the Soviet government had to concentrate significant military units.

Yaroslav Galan lived after the war in Lviv. He continued to engage in literary activities, despite the obvious threat to his life from the "Bandera" and other Ukrainian nationalists. Death came to Yaroslav Galan from the very dangerous and insidious enemy with whom the writer has fought all his life. The family of the priest of the Uniate Church Denis Lukashevich, whose sons studied in Lviv universities, lived in Lviv. One of the sons of the priest, Ilariy Lukashevich, “dabbled” in composing poems and in this field met Yaroslav Galan. A friendly and open person, the writer did not disdain to communicate with novice writers and give them his advice. The son of the priest took advantage of this, rubbing his trust in Yaroslav Aleksandrovich. Gradually, the young Lukashevich became a regular guest at the house of Yaroslav Galan. The writer, without fear, let him into his home, regularly communicated on the subject of literary writing. In the meantime, the “order” to kill Galan has already been received. The direct customer of the crime was the leaders of Lviv Uniates, behind whose backs stood the circles of the Vatican.

Someone called "Buytur" was involved in the organization of the crime. This nickname was worn by one of the organizers of the "OUN" underground, prepared in the West. “In Lviv and the surrounding areas, a gang was outraged, commanded by the so-called supra-district conductor of the OUN, nicknamed“ Buyur ”. This leader corresponded to his nickname with wildness of actions, audacity and dexterity in confrontation with the security services. According to available data, he had a university education and training in the "Russicum" - a special educational institution of the Vatican, where they trained personnel for subversive work, and above all, against the Orthodox Church. It is not surprising that with the direct participation of "Bujtur "In the Lviv region were killed 52 Orthodox priest" - says participant in many operations against the "Bandera" underground veteran of the state security of the USSR Colonel Michael K. aspirated (Blinkov A. Take alive // ​​Kursk truth № 55, 2013.).

Ilariy Lukashevich found the performer - they became Mikhail Stakhur, a young man, despite his years having already committed eight murders. Stakhur was an activist of the “OUN” underground and hated the Communists and Russia, by which he understood the Soviet Union. For some time, Stakhur was a gangster in the Galician forests, but then he received a responsible mission to kill Galan and arrived in Lviv. The son of the priest led Stakhur to Galan's house, recommending him also as a novice writer. Unselfish and gullible to his fellow writers, even young and unknown, Galan, without any fear, agreed to help the young man to become a poet. Several times he saw Stakhur, explaining the wisdom of versification. The young man did not arouse suspicion in Galan, especially since Yaroslav Aleksandrovich trusted Hilaria Lukashevich, whom he had known for a long time, and was convinced that Mikhail Stakhur, brought to him, was also a student in Lviv Pedagogical Institute, “obsessed” with his passion for poetic creativity.

October 24 1949 of the year Galan's apartment was called. The door went to open the housekeeper, who saw Stakhur at the writer's house and therefore did not suspect anything. Stahur tied up the housekeeper, gagged her mouth, cut off the phone ... At that time, Yaroslav Galan was sitting in his office and was working on another piece. When Mikhail Stakhur came to his room, Galan greeted him without even looking back, since he was very busy. Stahur approached the writer from behind and hit the head several times with an ax. Galan fell with the chair to the floor. Thus, in the forty-eighth year of his life, an eminent writer and a true patriot of the Russian world was killed ... The murderer Stakhur, hiding the crime weapon under his cloak, quickly left Galan's apartment and hid in a safe house at his comrades' inmates. At night, he left Lviv and “went into the forest” to the OUN people. There he hoped to hide and continue the struggle against the Soviet regime. It should be noted that he managed to spend almost two years after the murder of Galan "free", hiding in the "OUN" dens of the Lviv region.

Loop waited for the "hero"

The murder of Jaroslav Galan infuriated Joseph Stalin, who was very good to the writer. The leadership of the Communist Party of Ukraine, state security and internal affairs agencies, the Komsomol were instructed to find the killers of the Soviet writer as soon as possible. Vladimir Semichastny, the future chairman of the KGB of the USSR, and during the described events - the first secretary of the LKSMU Central Committee, recalled: “Just before the new 1950 year in Lviv, Yaroslav Galan was killed with an ax in the household chair. Khrushchev sent many then to the capital of Western Ukraine: his second secretary Melnikov, the head of the KGB, the minister of internal affairs, the secretary of the party on ideology and me as the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Young Communist League: “Look who did it! "". The search for the murderers of Galan was conducted on an unprecedented scale. The mistake of Galan’s killer was that he left the maid alive — either forgot to “remove” her, or regretted it. Rather, I forgot, considering that at the time of the murder of the writer, Stakhur already had eight murders, and absolutely innocent people. Thanks to the testimony of the housekeeper, the investigation managed to reach the circle of alleged customers and performers of a terrible crime. More than a hundred suspects were arrested, including, of course, all the children of Priest Lukashevich. The court sentence was harsh: three brothers Lukashevich were sentenced to capital punishment - the death penalty through execution. The priest and a number of other accomplices in the crime received 20-25 years in prison. However, the main person involved in the case — murderer Mikhail Stakhur — remained at large. He was hiding on the territory of the Lviv region, in the forests where the bases of the “OUN” troops still existed.

The search for Mikhail Stakhur lasted about two years. In 1951, the state security authorities received information that a group of four “OUN citizens” was hiding in a forest shelter, one of which is Mikhail Stakhur, the murderer of Yaroslav Galan. The Chekists have learned that at night the militants come to the nearest village, where one elderly couple regularly supplies them with food and repairs clothes and shoes. Now there was a "case of technology", but the main task was still difficult to take - to take the armed militants alive, so that the Soviet court could give them fair sentences. Therefore, the security officers met with their grandfather and grandmother, who fed and served the militants, and convinced them to add compulsive sopods to the compote brewed for the OUN. The plan was to take the militants asleep during the afternoon rest. When the “OUN citizens” appeared in the house of a long time acquaintance - grandfather and grandmother, they didn’t even suspect what a “delicious compote” was prepared for them. Militants had lunch and went out into the yard to relax and smoke. All this time, a seizure group consisting of experienced state security officers was watching the house. Gradually, the militants fell asleep, and at that moment Chekists broke into the house, who managed to twist the “OUN members” at lightning speed.

The arrested were taken to the district department of the UMGB in Lviv region. Among those caught was Mikhail Stakhur. For almost a year, a second investigation was carried out into the case of the murder of Yaroslav Galan by Mikhail Stakhur. It was found that the latter during the second half of 1940's. committed nine brutal murders. At the beginning of 1952, a military tribunal of the Carpathian Military District, held in Lviv, Mikhail Stakhur was sentenced to the death penalty - the death penalty by hanging. It should be noted that after the end of the war and the execution of the captured policemen involved in the murders of the citizens of the USSR in the occupied territories, the Soviet courts abandoned the practice of hanging. Mikhail Stakhur became the first criminal to be hanged in the post-war years.

As we see, almost seven decades have passed since the brutal murder of the writer Yaroslav Galan by the Ukrainian nationalists, and the tactics of the latter have not changed. The only argument they have is the use of criminal methods - after all, they are not capable of answering a word with a word. So it turns out that writers and journalists give their lives, telling people the truth about the true face of Ukrainian nationalism. Sixty-six years ago, Jaroslav Galan was killed, a few days ago - Oles Buzin. Hundreds of other politicians, writers, journalists who spoke from pro-Russian and even simply anti-fascist positions were killed. They are killed because the word beats stronger than a bullet, stronger than artillery pieces. The word denounces, removes camouflage suits from these “nationalists”, swearing eternal love to the West, ready to give their lives to millions of compatriots and completely destroy the infrastructure of their own country, guided by only insane Russophobia.

      I completely agree with you. One of the few journalists who spoke the truth and was not afraid for his truth. Such people deserve respect. I think that in another, new Ukraine, the name Olesya Buzin will take its deserved place in the history of his country. hi His kingdom is not heaven. Let the earth rest in peace.

    "Manuscripts do not burn" !!! Thousands of O. Buzina's books were sold on the bookshelves of ordinary people. I am not afraid to say that he was the most popular contemporary Ukrainian writer, although he was never promoted as much as, for example, O. Zabuzhko, who writes “novels” such as “Field Studies of Ukrainian Sex”. People believed O. Buzina. On one of the talk shows, a vote was held "who do you believe more O. Buzina or" Ukrainian truth ", and almost 50% voted for Olesya !!!
    He was so afraid that they began to intimidate publishers with whom he was going to cooperate. In particular, "News." They were warned that "if the publisher does not change its policy, then they may close it." Do not change! Then the "patriots" began to attack the carriers and distributors of the newspaper. They beat, try to destroy the circulation. But still they have not changed! And it was they who were going to work Oles from this week!
    Bright memory and kingdom of heaven to Olesya! MALOROSSU and PATRIOT of his people.
    Threat. Previously, the works of Galan were studied at school, with the "independent" they were immediately removed. Oh! Then to guess what is going!

      Do not call. There are plenty of bad examples, but in Ukraine nowadays fashion sucks ...

    After the news of the death of Elderberry, he finally ceased to have illusions about what was happening there. This is the point of no return.

    the kingdom of heaven, Olesya Buzine, evoked a feeling of sincere sympathy in me, and now deep respect

    This man, who openly criticizes first the Maidan, and then the new government of Ukraine on Russian television, realizing that his family is at that time in Kiev and exposing her to permanent danger, from the very first I met him won my respect. Let's hope that at least his family will not suffer for his correct judgments, views and statements. Olesya's friends need to take care of his family.
    There would be more such fearless and purposeful people to our world in general and modern Ukraine in particular. I believe Oles Buzin is worthy to be called a hero. Too bad posthumously.

    A person is distinguished from an animal by the presence of conscience. Oles Buzin was a voice of conscience in the former state of Ukraine. Having killed the voice of conscience, Bandera finally showed the grin of their bestial beastly state, but they in vain think that it will just get away from their bloodied hands, these bipedal people themselves signed a sentence ... And let the bastards live and look no mercy now. soldier

    I read and saw a lot about Oles Buzin! And frankly, it was just humanly sorry that such a bright, and extraordinary, and brave man, sincerely loving Ukraine and Russia, was killed! Already, something in the soul became empty! Those who personally knew Buzina were always amazed at Olesem’s knowledge of Kiev, all its corners are significant and insignificant, cafes that serve cool pies with tea, historical places where something happened during the time of the White Guards, constantly ran and went in for sports in a public garden somewhere near the house, and he well knew the Shevchenkovsky district of Kiev, where he was born and raised. Despite the fact that they tried to beat him twice, he flatly refused to leave both Kiev and Ukraine! Because I probably did not think that the Ukrainians would try to do something else for him. And these ghouls not only did, they killed him! Do not be shy to say the conscience and voice of Ukraine! EVERYTHING Ukraine has lost its best SON! It’s bitter and disgusting that they have come to and continue to roll on, although they seem to have reached the bottom! Kingdom of heaven to him! May the earth rest in peace!

    Are Poles seriously hoping for restitution?

    They are killed because the word hits stronger than a bullet, stronger than artillery. The word denounces, removes camouflage suits from these “nationalists”, swearing eternal love to the West, ready to give the lives of millions of compatriots and completely destroy the infrastructure of their own country, guided by only insane Russophobia.
    Yes. In a word they stopped the sun, in a word they destroyed cities. Ideas live longer than people.
