It is here that I want to briefly discuss these points. Unlike the former president, who acknowledged that the collapse of the USSR is a catastrophe, and a catastrophe of enormous proportions, Dmitry Medvedev is following the course of those Westerners who have always been alien to a strong Russia, whatever name it bears - Kievan Rus, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union or Russian Federation. It was precisely these forces that made mad efforts for the collapse of the country's economy and the destruction of its mental and spiritual potential. The first in this series is, naturally, Yeltsin, under the “wise” leadership of which the country has lost a huge territory, enormous human resources and practically found itself on the verge of extinction.
What, in my opinion, is cunning in Medvedev's words?
First of all, this is, of course, the problem of people, because after the collapse of the USSR tens of millions of Russians were forcibly deprived of their homeland, found themselves in the position of second and third class people. They began to drive, poison, rob and kill. In an instant, they turned into outcasts, useless. In Chechnya, two bloody wars, deserted tens of thousands of people and pockets of representatives of the oligarchic stratum. Thousands of enterprises closed, hundreds of thousands of people were left without work. Free health care was eliminated (what remains free can only be considered a mockery). The army has become something amorphous, unable to fight a community of people under the leadership of generals, more concerned about their own well-being than about strengthening their defenses. As for the “fear of stores,” the younger generation will clearly lead to Medvedev’s statement. However, I remember well that empty regiments and fear appeared in 1989, when Yeltsin and Gorbachev clashed in a fight for power, not wanting to give in or share it.
You can also recall the notorious judgment of citizen Medvedev that the Soviet people as such did not exist. And who, then, raised the country from the chaos of 20's devastation of the last century? Who won the Great Patriotic War? Maybe a flock of sheep? Or a bunch of Russians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Jews and other nations? How he easily and simply destroys the "myths" of 20 of the century, as if following the book of Hitler's theorist Rosenberg!
And in the fight for sweets, all means are good. And craving power, they deliberately destroyed the backbone of the economy. Spiritual impoverishment has reached an extraordinary degree, pederasty has become not a vice, but valor, the main moral principle of the present time: profit, profit and once again profit. Drugs, alcohol and violence became the main components of the mentality of a large part of the population. Morality has become a sign of backwardness, and the inability to steal - dementia and inferiority. Prostitution has become so commonplace that even priests stopped talking about fighting it. The birth rate has dropped to a catastrophic level; young people do not want to continue their kin; now there are other desires in her blood, dictated by the norms of the consumer society. Result: the Russian people is dying out; its place is taken by people from the Caucasus and Central Asia. The officials do not want and will not create normal working conditions for their unemployed citizens, because this will require them to perform their direct duties for the benefit of society. Therefore, according to the EP, indigenous citizens may drink and die, and Russia can be settled by migrant workers, and there is much more money from this than from the legal employment of Russians. Since 1996, elections have become a fiction based on the Stalinist principle: it doesn’t matter how they vote, it’s important how they think. For ten years, the country was rampant in crime, a real sabbath of lawlessness. Crime has penetrated all spheres of society and has entangled everything, starting with the economy and ending with education.
In the political sphere, we have passed and continue all the positions that the Soviet Union had. We allow any country to kick us, starting with the United States and ending with Poland. Consciously bowing to the West, Russia is increasingly becoming a raw material (and silent) appendage of Western society. It is impossible to call these actions as genocide.
But such trifles do not touch the statesmen. Do not forget that the current president at one time headed Gazprom, whose interests are clearly more precious to him than the interests of its own people. Let us recall here that the unforgettable Viktor Chernomyrdin, who sincerely believed that what is good for Gazprom, is good for Russia also came from there. So Medvedev’s cynical reaction to the collapse of the USSR is well explained. But I, as a citizen of my country, do not want and cannot agree with her.
