Here are just a few externally unrelated News:
Bulgaria and Romania supported the idea of investigating the "crimes of communism."
Earlier, on August 23, 2015, representatives of the Ministries of Justice of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Georgia, at a conference in Tallinn, made a joint statement in which they called for an expert group to discuss the investigation of the “crimes of communism” and create special court.
Yatsenyuk declares “legal war” to Russia.
Ukraine wants to make Russia pay compensation “for the Crimea and Donbass” in European courts.
An unscrupulous attack is launched on Russia through the decisions of foreign courts - Lavrov. The Russian Foreign Minister promised that Russia would not give up any weakness in protecting Russian property abroad.
Lavrov: "The MH17 Tribunal would not be like an international court." According to the Russian Foreign Minister, the investigation into the crash of a Boeing aircraft in Ukraine "was not independent."
So, the property and innocence of Russia in the murder of a Malaysian aircraft Moscow will defend with all its might. And the Crimea? And Donbass? And Russia itself from the "crimes of communism" and "de-Stalinization"?
Until recently, modern Russia had only two unifying bases - and both from the time of the USSR: May Victory Day 9 and Yuri Gagarin. 2014 year added to them the only nationwide acquisition and merger - Crimea.
This fundamental combination of patriotism and internationalism is opposed by a solidarity systematically built back in the late 1940s and early 1950s in the interests of the West’s Cold Warhistorical politics ”, combining the myths of“ Western civilization ”with the myths of national liberation, priority not directed against the West, but against the USSR. It was laid back in the 1920th century in Polish-German anti-Russian journalism, developed in the German ideology of Mitteleuropa (Central Europe) and its eastern Lebensraum (living space), Austro-Hungarian anti-Russian projects of the late XX - early XX century. both in general and in the details of the Polish projects of the 1930s and 1937s that coincide with them. Męzymorze (Baltic-Adriatic Intermarium) and “Prometheism” - the project of destruction of the USSR with the help of nationalist movements in Ukraine, the Caucasus, the Volga, Turkestan and Siberia. The Polish General Staff wrote about the tasks of Prometheus in XNUMX as follows:
“Prometheism is a movement of all peoples oppressed by Russia without exception ... in order to cause a national revolution on the territory of the USSR ... Prometheus mobilizes members of its own will and under its own responsibility, without taking any political obligations towards national centers ... Prometheus should have the right to show national radicalism in order to create revolutionary dynamics in the most effective way. Radical and national tendencies should not be blamed on him and should not be incorrectly regarded as fascist ... ”
After destroying Poland, which had asked Hitler Germany about a military alliance against the USSR, Hitler, in his “Eastern policy,” in detail and generally adopted her project of dismembering the USSR. Not surprisingly, it was Hitler's propaganda and other cadres who, after 1945, found refuge in the United States and Western Europe and were used “by profile”.
In July 1959 years after the organization of the global network of anti-communist intellectuals and the creation of "totalitarianism" theory in the works of Hannah Arendt, Ludwig von Mises, and Zbigniew Brzezinski, after attempts to unite the Russian anti-communist exile with former Nazi collaborators and nationalists from among the peoples of the former Russian Empire and the USSR, The US Congress adopted a resolution on “enslaved peoples” in the USSR and the countries of the communist bloc (the author of the resolution’s text was written by the State Department, the president of the Ukrainian Congress US Committee Lev Dobriansky, teacher to the wife of the President of Ukraine (2005 − 2010) Viktor Yushchenko Katherine Chumachenko (from 1998), father Paula Dobriansky - Deputy Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (2005 − 2009)). The resolution demanded liberation and independence: Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, Ukraine, Czechoslovakia, Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Romania, East Germany, Bulgaria, mainland China, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, North Korea, Albania, Idel-Ural ( there is the Volga region, Tatars and Bashkiria), Tibet, the "Cossacks" (that is, the country of the Cossacks), Turkestan, North Vietnam. It was ordered to celebrate annually the Week of the enslaved peoples (it is celebrated so far).
In the 2008 year (as follows from the recognition of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland, at the initiative of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Hungary), the European Parliament proposed to celebrate 23 on August, on the anniversary of the signing of the non-aggression treaty between Germany and the USSR (the Molotov and Ribbentrop Pact), The Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Totalitarian Regimes, that is, Nazism and Communism (for the first time in the EU, this Day was celebrated on August 23 of 2011 of the year). It is clear that the EU has thus withdrawn from the sphere of joint responsibility for the expansion of Nazi Germany to Europe, Great Britain and France as participants in their Munich Agreement (the “Munich Agreement”) of 30 September 1938 of the year with Germany and Italy on the partition of Czechoslovakia (as well as those who became part of the partition of Poland and then Hungary) or, for example, the Treaty of 1934 of the Year between Poland of Pilsudski and Hitler’s Germany. Thus, the communist USSR, the former in 1941 — 1945. ally of the United States, Britain and parts of France in the fight against Hitler Germany (including Austria) and allied Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Finland, Spain, Slovakia, Croatia, friendly to neutral Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden, was equated with Hitler Germany itself. It is also clear that, apart from the USSR, the authorities of all communist countries in the EU attributed to the number of totalitarian regimes in the EU, but did not include numerous nationalist, authoritarian dictatorships and allied Hitler and collaborationist governments of Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria. Romania, Finland, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Portugal, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and others, in respect of which the authorities and respectable policies of the current EU member states emphasize their historical and political continuity.
In November 2008, a Permanent Working Group on the “Platform for European Memory and Conscience” was created in the Czech Republic. The initiative was approved by the European Parliament in April 2009 in order to support a network of national institutions specializing in the study of the history of totalitarianism, the creation of a European documentation center and a memorial to victims of totalitarian regimes. By the decision of the European Commission in December 2010, the creation of the “Platform” was declared an important European initiative. The organization’s first project should be the preparation and publication of a joint textbook on the history of totalitarianism in Europe. 14 October 2011 in Prague during the meeting of the Prime Ministers of the Visegrad Group countries (Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic) “Platform for European Remembrance and Conscience” was created. It was established by specialized institutions specifically designed to formulate and implement a “historical policy”, which serves as an expert foundation for foreign policy actions. It is noteworthy that already hereinafter the infrastructure of “historical politics” in the field of memorialization of the victims of totalitarianism absolutely excluded national and international organizations specializing in the memorialization of the victims of the Holocaust and collaboration, that is, it actually brought Hitler's nationalist allies in Europe out of responsibility.
23 August 2011 in Warsaw, the EU Ministers of Justice for the first time celebrated the European Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Totalitarian Regimes. Among those who arrived in Warsaw for this purpose were the Deputy Prime Ministers of Latvia and Hungary, the Ministers of Justice of Lithuania, Estonia, Croatia, Romania, the Czech Republic, Spain, Sweden, Slovakia and Malta. They adopted the "Warsaw Declaration". The declaration, in particular, reaffirmed the equality of communism and national socialism and a priori indulged the “democracy” as a whole, that is, those colonial, authoritarian and collaborationist regimes that until now keep the previous results of their “biopolitics” clearly not in the center of attention The EU’s “historical politics” and continue this “biopolitics” in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria: “totalitarian regimes are responsible for most of the shameful acts of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes ... [the poet Thom only] crimes of totalitarian regimes in Europe, regardless of their kind and ideology, must be recognized and condemned. ”
From the new formula it follows that the allies of Hitler in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Hungary, Italy, Romania, responsible for the genocide and other crimes, and even more so - allies of Hitler at the head of Finland, Spain, Portugal, France, and even more so - The democratic authorities of England, France, and the United States, which up to a certain point directly supported Hitler in his aggression to the East, in the direction of the USSR, are not subject to the EU declaration of justice. The silence in the declaration on brutal ethnic cleansing conducted, for example, against the Germans and Hungarians by the democratic authorities of Czechoslovakia in 1945 or by the democratic authorities of Croatia against the Serbs of Serbian Krajina in 1995, also sounded loud. This means that the EU’s ideological demands on Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan will now contain a condemnation of regimes that are a priori “responsible for the majority” of crimes, but the massive crimes of Hitler collaborators — including those from .
The only significant response from Russia to this kind of "anti-totalitarian" revisionism in the EU was the joint Russian-Israeli declaration by Israeli President Shimon Peres and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, announced in August 2009:
“The Jewish and Russian peoples fought on the same side during World War II, were together in the fight against Hitlerism and racism. Hundreds of thousands of Jews side by side with the Russians and representatives of other peoples of the Soviet Union fought in the ranks of the Red Army, which liberated concentration camps and death camps, played a vital and key role in the outcome of the war against Nazi Germany. Many of these heroes of the Red Army now live in Russia, Israel and other states. We honor their courage and determination. No attempt to revise history can belittle or obscure these clear facts. Attempts to deny the Holocaust are a direct insult to the memory of all the victims of World War II and those who fought against fascism, trying to belittle the tragedy of the Holocaust and erase it from history, as well as keep silent about the death and suffering of millions of innocent victims of different nationalities. ”
But this answer remained in the shadows - even in the actions of Russian diplomacy and the efforts of official information and (along with the opening in June 2012 of Israel a monument to the soldiers of the Red Army who fell in the fight against the Nazis) became no more than a passing episode of bilateral relations not applied to the growing pressure of the Euro-Atlantic "historical policy" on Russia and its near abroad.
Moreover, the draft federal law “On Countering the Rehabilitation of Nazism in the Newly Independent States on the Territory of the Soviet Union of Nazism, Nazi Criminals and Their Supporters” prepared by the State Duma of Russia in the spring of 2009, was described in detail by the representatives of parliamentary majority.
Successful collection of more than 2012 signatures under the appeal to President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev about the establishment of the “Post-Soviet and Nazar’s Day” commemoration campaign in Russia conducted by the Russian public with the active participation of the REGNUM in the spring of 10.000, the establishment of the “Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Nazism and Collaborationism” in Russia post-communist states that subject the nationalist (anti-communist) revision to the role of the nazi collaborators. That was precisely the point of the initiative, which was additional to the existing mourning Day of Remembrance on the day of the start of World War II on June 22. But the state, having given the initiative a purely consultative character, in fact rejected it, not using it to formulate the tasks of its own "historical policy".
In the spring of 2013, a new attempt was made in the State Duma to update the draft law against the rehabilitation of Nazism, but it did not meet with any support.
Meanwhile, in February 2011, members of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights under Russian President D. A. Medvedev, headed by Mikhail Fedotov, presented a “nationwide state-public program” “On perpetuation of the memory of the victims of the totalitarian regime and on national reconciliation” the authors are not called the reconciliation program, but the detotalitarianization or de-Stalinization program. The program was supported by the president and became the official program of the "historical policy", the implementation of which was prevented only by the fact that it soon became clear that from 2012, Medvedev would not become the president of Russia for a second term. What is fundamentally important in this program of state "de-Stalinization"?
The current state of society in the field of historical memory, that is, first of all, the national consensus around 9 in May, this program considers the "ongoing civil war." It does not hide the totalitarian ideocratic claims of the ruling liberal elite: “With the adoption of this program, anti-totalitarianism becomes part of the official policy of Russia,” and “full recognition of the 20th century Russian catastrophe, the victims and consequences of the totalitarian regime that ruled the USSR” (including “genocide, destruction of faith and morals ”), according to the program, first of all for some reason, in order to“ overcome the mutual alienation of the people and the elite ”(which, it turns out, they are leading a civil war between themselves - not really ty of predatory capitalism and Stalinism around past), as well as to "raise the moral and political authority of the current government" (ie. e. at the time Medvedev). Declaring that "all of Europe is guilty ... in two world wars," that is, the USSR equally, the presidential council intends to acquire the international dimension of "de-Stalinization" in full compliance with the then-not yet approved, but already prepared in the EU "European Memory Platform and conscience ":" It is necessary to conclude multilateral interstate agreements with the CIS and Baltic countries and, possibly, with former socialist countries on their participation in the creation of the EBD (single database) "Victims of the totalitarian regime in the USSR and in the countries of the former social camp I"…"
Thus, the presidential program of liberal "de-Stalinization" placed on the USSR equal blame for the outbreak of the Second World War and genocide, which essentially coincides with the requirements formulated in the EU with respect to Russia.
15 August 2015, the now Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of 15 August 2015, No. 1561-r “On the Concept of State Policy for Perpetuating the Memory of Victims of Political Repressions” into which the previous “de-Stalinization” program has flowed.
That is - while the people of Russia independently bring to the streets of the country the amateur "Immortal Regiment" of memory, conscience and identity, struggling with the overwhelming ideological policies of the US and the EU and receive almost no support from the Russian authorities, the program is fake “De-Stalinization”, consistent with the US and EU aggression, which tomorrow will take the form of a tribunal over formally Stalin and communism, and in fact - over the USSR and Russia.
And the Russian authorities are not only not preparing for this perspective, but are also preparing internal collaborators to implement the ideological inquisition and occupation regime in the country tomorrow.
