Mutiny of the ship's commander

40 years ago, 8 November 1975, Captain Valery Sablin raised an uprising on the Watchdog ship. On that day, Sablin addressed the crew with the words: “The current state apparatus must be thoroughly cleaned and partially dumped stories. Action plan - we go to Kronstadt, and then to Leningrad - the city of three revolutions. ” He isolated the captain of the ship, voluntarily removed the ship from the raid in Riga and took him to Leningrad. The uprising suppressed immediately.


Valery Mikhailovich Sablin was born on January 1, 1939 in Leningrad in the family of the hereditary sailor Mikhail Sablin. In 1960 he graduated from the Leningrad Higher Naval School named after Frunze. He received the specialty of a ship gunner and began his service in the North navy as an assistant commander of a battery of 130-mm guns of a destroyer. Until 1969 he served in combat posts and from the post of assistant commander of a patrol ship of the Northern Fleet entered the Lenin Military-Political Academy. He graduated from the Academy in 1973 with honors: his name was embossed on a marble board among the names of other best graduates of the Academy (in November 1975, he was hastily cut down with a chisel). After graduating from the academy, Captain III rank Sablin was appointed political officer on the large anti-submarine ship Watchdog.

Sablin has developed a detailed program for the reorganization of society. Sablin was distinguished by high political activity and already wrote to Khrushchev, expressing his thoughts about the purity of the party ranks. He advocated a multi-party system, freedom of speech and discussion, changing the order of elections in the party and the country. He announced his program, pointing out serious mistakes and disintegration of the Soviet leadership, the officer decided from the “tribune” of the BOD Watchdog.

However, Sablin could not immediately realize his plan. The ship was new, the crew was just being formed. The officers were loaded with work. In the course of combat service, the commander-in-chief studied the crew and gradually acquainted some of its members with his views and plans, and found like-minded people among them. Sablin had an opportunity to speak in the fall of 1975, when the ship was sent for scheduled repairs in Liepaja, but before that he received an order to take part in a naval parade in Riga, dedicated to the 58 anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution. Some officers of the ship went on vacation, their absence was in the hands of Sablin.

November 6 The Watchdog 1975 arrived at the Riga raid. November 8 1975 about 19 hours Sablin cunning lured and locked the ship commander Anatoly Potulny on the lower deck. After that, he gathered 13 officers and 13 midshipmen in the midshipman mess-room, where he outlined his views and suggestions. In particular, he said that the leadership of the USSR had departed from Leninist principles. Sablin proposed to make the unauthorized transfer of the ship to Kronstadt, to declare it an independent territory, on behalf of the crew to request the leadership of the party and the country to give him the opportunity to speak on Central Television outlining their views. According to another version, Sablin planned to lead the ship to Leningrad, stand on the raid near Aurora and from there daily go on air, calling on citizens of the USSR for the communist revolution, to change the Brezhnev party-state apparatus and establish social justice.

Sablin offered to vote for his proposals. Part of the officers supported him, and 10 opposing were isolated. In fact, officers and warrant officers (even those who did not agree with Sablin in everything to the end) allowed Sablin to seize the ship. Allowed by their non-resistance, their withdrawal from the course of events, their consent to the arrest. Then Sablin assembled the crew of the ship and spoke before the sailors and foremen. He announced that most of the officers were on his side, and suggested that the crew also support him. Disoriented crew did not resist. In fact, one resolute and active person subjugated the entire crew to his will. He could have been prevented by the captain, but Sablin skillfully isolated him from the crew.

The lieutenant’s plans were violated by the commander of the electrical group of the ship, Senior Lieutenant Firsov, who managed to quietly leave the Watchtower and report on the emergency. As a result, Sablin lost the element of surprise. He took the ship out of the port and sent it to the exit from the Gulf of Riga.

Vice-Admiral Kosov ordered the ships stationed on the Riga roads to catch up with the rebel. Reports of emergency on the "Watchdog" immediately were sent to the Ministry of Defense and the Kremlin. An alarm bell found the Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov in the country; on the way to Moscow, he got in touch with his country's minister of defense, Marshal Grechko, from his car. The order of the Minister was brief: "Catch up and destroy!"

On alert, border guard ships and the Baltic Fleet, as well as the 668th bomber, were raised aviation regiment. Then, by order of Marshal Grechko, a regiment of strategic aviation took off - long-range missile carriers Tu-16. The border guards asked for permission to demolish the wheelhouse along with Sablin from machine guns, but Kosov did not allow it. The Watchtower was warned: at the intersection of the 20th meridian, a missile strike would be launched on destruction.

On November 9, on the morning of 10, Admiral Gorshkov radioed an order to the Watchtower: “Stop the course!” Captain Sablin refused. Marshal Grechko repeated the order on his behalf. Instead of answering, Sablin broadcast the appeal: “Everybody! Everybody Everyone! .. "Ship radio operator at the end of the text added from himself:" Goodbye, little brothers! "

The Watchdog was stopped in the Irbensky Strait by Soviet Su-24 bomber, which damaged the ship. After that, the sailors freed the captain. He climbed to the bridge, shot Sabin’s leg and restored command of the ship. Then a boarding group was landed on the deck, arresting the wounded instigator of the uprising. Sablin and his supporters were arrested. All the blame for what happened Sablin immediately took over, without naming anyone as accomplices.

The Military Collegium of the USSR Supreme Court accused Sablina of treason against her motherland and sentenced her to death. The investigation announced that this entire political program was developed only to deceive future comrades-in-arms: in fact, Sablin did not intend to lead the ship to Leningrad, but to the Swedish island of Gotland, where the naval commander intended to ask for political asylum in the United States. Accusations of treason and an attempt to hijack a warship abroad, Sablin categorically rejected. Captain 3 rank Valery Sablin and several others involved in the rebellion, were deprived of titles and awards. Sablin was shot 3 August 1976 year in Moscow.

In 1994, the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation revised the case of Sablin "taking into account the new circumstances" and re-qualified it from "treason to the motherland" to articles on military crimes (excess of power, disobedience and resistance to the authorities), which together changed the sentence to 10 years imprisonment . He was refused posthumous rehabilitation.

Sablina’s virtually individual rebellion was a kind of “bell” that warned the leadership and society and eventually predicted the death of Soviet civilization. An honest and determined man challenged the system, trying to show its flaws leading to collapse. Indeed, after Stalin, the USSR irreversibly led to death. During the reign of Khrushchev, the Stalinist project of creating a society of creation and service was hacked to death, Trotskyism prevailed without mass repressions and voluntarism, the surrender of positions to the West began. Under Brezhnev, political stagnation, an attempt to preserve something from Stalin’s legacy, while preserving underground Trotskyism. A general decomposition began, although economics, science, and military science were gaining momentum by inertia.

The rotting of the USSR began, the corruption of souls, which during the "perestroika" will be sold for jeans and a pack of gum. The fleet is a subtle and complex structure on which any unhealthy social organism immediately responds. The ship is a model of the state in miniature. Fever country - shakes and fleet. Suffice it to recall the uprisings in the fleet since the end of the Romanov empire. It is not surprising that at the time the fleet was at the peak of an accident. The ships were burning, colliding and sinking. In 1974, the year caught fire, exploded and sank the large anti-submarine ship "Brave". A year later, the flames on the huge “Moscow” helicopter carrier began to cloud, submarines were killed. Basically, everything was written off as “negligence of officials”. But this “negligence” had long and dangerous roots that went into an “ideological deficit”. People at the subconscious level felt that the USSR had deprived the ideological rod. Political window dressing, apathy, indifference and indiscriminate drunkenness engulfed society and the fleet itself.

Captain 3-rank Sablin dared to challenge the general degradation. He could not enter by legal means. Therefore, made from the bridge of the ship. “I was a liberal for a long time,” Sablin wrote in his farewell letter to his wife, “confident that something needs to be slightly corrected in our society, that one or two accusatory articles must be written, something needs to be changed ... It was about 1971 of the year. Studying at the academy finally convinced me that the steel state party machine is so steel that any blows in the forehead will turn into empty sounds ... We must break this machine from the inside using its own armor. From 1972, I began to dream of a free propaganda territory of the ship. Unfortunately, the situation was such that only in November of 75 did a real opportunity arise to perform ... What pushed me to that? Love of life. And I do not mean the life of a well-fed tradesman, but a bright, honest life, which causes sincere joy to all honest people. I am convinced that in our people, like 58 years ago, revolutionary consciousness will break out and he will achieve communist relations in our country. And now our society is mired in a political swamp, more and more economic difficulties and social upheavals will be felt. Honest people see it, but do not see a way out of the situation ... ".

From Sablin's Appeal to the Soviet People, recorded on magnetic tape (decoding of the investigation bodies of the KGB):

“Comrades! Listen to the text of the speech, with which we strive to speak on radio and television.

First of all, thank you very much for your support, otherwise I would not talk with you today. Our speech is not a betrayal of the Motherland, but a purely political, progressive speech, and those who are trying to hinder us will be traitors to the Motherland. My comrades asked me to convey that in the event of military action against our country, we will adequately protect it. And now our goal is different: to raise the voice of truth.

We are firmly convinced that many honest people in the Soviet Union have a purely critical plan regarding the policies of the CPSU Central Committee and the Soviet Government.

[...] Lenin dreamed of a state of justice and freedom, and not of a state of strict submission and political powerlessness. [...] I think it makes no sense to prove that at the present time the servants of society have already turned into masters over society. On this point, everyone has more than one example from life. We are witnessing a game of formal parliamentarism in the elections to the Soviet bodies and in the performance of their duties by the Soviets. Practically, the fate of the entire people is in the hands of a select elite in the person of the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee. Comprehensive concentration of power, political, state, has become a stable and universally recognized fact. Especially the fateful role in the development of the revolutionary process in our country was played by the destruction of dissidents during the personality cult of Stalin and Khrushchev. And now, note, also annually arrested before 75 people for political reasons. Lost faith in the existence of justice in our society. And this is the first symptom of a serious illness of society. [...] For some reason, it is believed that the people should be content with the facts and be a politically weak-willed mass. And people need political activity ... Tell me, where, in what newspaper or in radio and television programs is the criticism of the leaders allowed? It is excluded. And we must honestly admit that we do not have a political or public body that would allow the discussion on many controversial issues of the social, political, economic, and cultural development of our country to unfold, since everything is under pressure from party and state bodies. The most advanced social development system in a historically short period of time, 50 years, broke into a social system in which people found themselves in a stagnant atmosphere of unquestioning faith in instructions from above, in an atmosphere of political lawlessness and wordlessness, in which the fear of opposing the party and the other government agency, as this will affect personal destiny. Our people have already suffered and suffer greatly because of their political powerlessness. Only a narrow circle of specialists knows how much harm voluntaristic intervention of state and party organs has brought in the development of science and art, in the development of the armed forces and the economy, in solving national issues and educating young people.

Of course, we can laugh a million times over the satire of Raikin, the magazine Crocodile, the film magazine Wick, but tears must once appear through laughter over the present and the future of the Motherland. It is time not to laugh, but to attract someone to the national court and ask with all the severity for all this bitter laughter. Now in our country there is a difficult situation: on the one hand, with external, official, in our society, universal harmony and social consent, neither give nor take - nation-wide state, and on the other hand - universal individual dissatisfaction with the existing state of affairs. [...] Our performance is only a small impulse, which should serve as the beginning of a surge. [...] Will the communist revolution be in the nature of an acute class struggle in the form of armed struggle or limited to political struggle? It depends on a number of factors. First, whether the people immediately believe in the need for social change. And in that way to them only through the communist revolution. Or it will be a long process of growth of public understanding, political consciousness. Secondly, whether the organizing and inspiring force of the revolution will be created in the near future, that is, a new revolutionary party based on a new advanced theory. And, finally, how violently the tops will resist the revolution, drown it in people's blood, and this largely depends on which side the troops, police and other armed units take. We can only theoretically assume that the availability of modern media, communications and transport, as well as the high cultural level of the population, the great experience of social revolutions in the past, will allow our people to force the government to abandon violent counter-revolutionary measures and direct the revolution along a peaceful path of development. However, we must never forget that revolutionary vigilance is the basis of the success of the struggle in a revolutionary era, and therefore we must be prepared for various turns of history. Our main task at the moment, when there is no wide network of revolutionary circles all over the country, there are neither trade union, nor youth, nor public (and they will grow quickly like mushrooms after rain), the main task now is to instill in people unshakable faith in the vital necessity of the communist revolution, in that there is no other way, everything else will lead to internal, even greater complications and torment. And the doubts of one generation will still result in a resolution of the next generation, more painful and difficult. This belief in the need for revolution will be the rain that will give organizational shoots.

[...] The question immediately arises - who, what class will be the hegemon of the revolution? This will be the class of the laboring, workers 'and peasants' intelligentsia, to which we refer, on the one hand, highly skilled workers and peasants, and on the other hand, engineering and technical personnel in industry and agriculture. Behind this class is the future. This is a class that will gradually turn into a society without classes after the communist revolution. And who will stand up to this class? What is the social face of the opponent? Management class. He is not numerous, but he has a concentrated management of the economy, the media, finance. On the basis of it all state superstructure is built, and at the expense of it it keeps. The management class includes party and trade union liberated workers, heads of large and medium-sized production teams and shopping centers, who successfully use, without violating, of course, Soviet laws, the socialist economic system for personal enrichment, personal approval in society as a master, by obtaining through state network of additional material and moral benefits. This new system of exploitation through the circulation of capital through the state budget requires more detailed study to expose and destroy. [...]

And, finally, the core issue of any revolution is a question of power ... It is assumed ... that, firstly, the current state apparatus will be thoroughly cleaned, and on some sites it is broken and thrown into the dustbin of history, as it is deeply infected with nepotism, bribery, careerism, arrogant towards the people; secondly, the election system should be thrown at the dump, turning the people into a faceless mass. Thirdly, all conditions that give rise to the omnipotence and lack of control of state bodies on the part of the masses must be eliminated. Will these questions be solved through the dictatorship of the leading class? Sure to! Otherwise, the whole revolution will end with the seizure of power - and no more. Only through the greatest national vigilance is the path to a society of happiness. ” [...]

“Now listen to the radiogram that is supposed to be given to the address of the Fleet command about our performance.

Radiogram addressed to the Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy. I ask you to urgently report to the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Soviet government that the flag of the coming communist revolution has been raised at the military-industrial complex "Watchtower".

We demand: the first is to declare the territory of the Watchdog ship free and independent from state and party bodies during the year.

The second is to provide the opportunity for one per crew member, according to our decision, to speak on Central Radio and Television during 30 minutes from 21.30 to 22.00 Moscow time daily ...

The third is to provide the Watchdog ship with all kinds of food allowances according to the norms in any base.

Fourth - allow the “Watchdog” to anchor and mooring in any base and point of the territorial waters of the USSR. The fifth is to ensure the delivery and dispatch of the Watchdog mail. The sixth is to allow the radio broadcasts of the Watchdog radio station in the Mayak radio network in the evening.

From the tape transcript by the investigating authorities of the KGB:

“ALL! EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING!

Says a large anti-submarine ship "Watchdog". We are not traitors to the Motherland and not adventurers seeking fame by any means. There is an urgent need to openly raise a number of questions about the political, social and economic development of our country, about the future of our people, requiring collective, national, discussion without pressure from state and party bodies. We decided on this speech with a clear understanding of responsibility for the fate of the Motherland, with a sense of ardent desire to achieve communist relations in our society. But we are also aware of the danger of being physically or morally destroyed by the relevant state authorities or by hired employees. Therefore, we seek the support of all honest people in our country and abroad. And if at the time we specified, the day in 21.30 Moscow time, one of the representatives of our ship does not appear on your TV screens, please do not go to work the next day and continue this TV strike until the government refuses the rude violation of freedom of speech and until our meeting with you.

Support us, comrades! Goodbye",

The wireless telegraphist himself added: “Farewell, little brothers! ..”

            Sablin is an idealist. He idealized the society in which he lived and did not fucking understand the laws by which it was arranged. His actions are a propaganda action based on mythologized examples a la "battleship Potemkin" and cruiser Ochakov. They treated him quite cruelly and unfairly, but according to the laws of the time. I feel sorry for him and my sympathies are on his side. He was not a political deputy by profession, but by a state of mind, I think he was a real political officer.

              This idealist gave a correct analysis of the development of our country by the 75th year. It was the 70s that were the peak of our decay. And from them grew the 91st, the year of the traitors of the Motherland, both above and among the people. We all betrayed our country, albeit under the guise of good intentions and the fact that socialism of the 80s rotted and stank.

                For the first time I heard the story of a rebel warship in the Baltic Sea, which was headed by the political commander of the ship, the next day, November 9, 1975, in the Transbaikal Military District far from these places, at a military airfield in the city of Borzya.
                The military "radio" spread the news instantly. Probably, because aviation took part in the bombing, and the dispatcher immediately smashed him to friends and colleagues.
                In the morning of November 9 we arrived on flights to the airfield, and we immediately started talking about a rebel ship in the Baltic Sea, captured by the political commander and part of the crew.
                The commander of the ship, the political officer locked in a cabin, which was subsequently opened by a sailor who accidentally ran past, who heard the captain hit the door.
                To stop the ship, going into neutral waters, they raised aircraft and bombed the ship to stop it, after which the ship stopped. At the same time, the commander of the ship freed and arrested the political leader by firing at him.
                And I learned the name of this "political officer" somewhere in the early 90s, in the article "Komsomolskaya Pravda" whitewashing this "hero."

              He was treated quite adequately. Armed rebellion and oath violation are evident.
              The verdict is execution. And what cockroaches crawled in his head absolutely on the drum. And by the way, how many then there were hijackings of planes abroad, how many traitors from the KGB went abroad, having surrendered their not for doggy shit. Will we regret them too? He knew what he was going on and received exactly as much as he deserved.

            This is more of an allusion to the uprising led by "Lieutenant" Schmidt. Also one ship, also naive faith in support, also a quick end. Was it under the influence of this revolutionary romanticism that Sablin decided to take such a suicidal step?

              Naive Chukchi young man. I forgot how the Kronstadt rebellion ended

              This is more of an allusion to the uprising led by "Lieutenant" Schmidt. Also one ship, also naive faith in support, also a quick end. Was it under the influence of this revolutionary romanticism that Sablin decided to take such a suicidal step?


              Alex, from my point of view, Lieutenant Schmidt, was rather a loser with a weak nervous system. He was expelled from the fleet several times. He made every effort to be removed from the Second Pacific Squadron during the campaign (apparently, fate kept it for Ochakov). And suddenly, in the wake of revolutionary events, when his speeches were recognized by the crowd, he felt himself on horseback, and even declared himself the commander of the Black Sea Fleet!
              Although, there is an opinion that on the day of the mutiny, Sablin arranged for the team to watch the film "Battleship Potemkin." Yes, the comparison is obvious! And Sablin's ideas were really very naive.

            Yes, of course, I agree with "... take off your shoulder straps, go into politics ... one oath ..." And did Sablin have a chance to go into politics, hmm, to live with wolves, howl wolves. there were two ways - A. reconcile and "fight in the kitchen" in retirement with the same pensioners. The path of hundreds of thousands of former warriors B. And the path to nowhere: what he chose, becoming a traitor against his will, while not betraying his ideals. Difficult choice and not everyone is capable of it. Ask yourself if you are capable. And then decide for yourself - do you have the moral right to condemn him?

          A very interesting insight after graduating from the military-political academy named after Lenin with honors.
          Damn, as I recall, studying the works of V.I. Lenin and taking notes of all kinds of reports (remember the newspaper Pravda and a few newspaper pages in small print) this is a quiet horror, and most importantly how long it took, it would be better to engage in combat training. But he only realized after graduating from the academy. . . . (I don’t even know what). But the fact that he violated the oath and his duty somehow so casually, and after all, not every traitor in our military-political academy has graduated, so you do not need to call him a naive person, at that time everyone who wanted to make a career (not necessarily a military one) studied at educational institutions of this profile.

          He is not naive. He saw what was going on. If he is naive, then what happened in 91m and 93m ??? He predicted the collapse of the Soviet system, and precisely because of the presence of helment in the system. It’s just that his words do not seem clear to you, because they were said in Soviet times, this time. Secondly, ONLY people of the goal can understand his words. Those who serve their country until death. This is patriotism. Therefore, you cannot understand him. Now the slogans of the times of the USSR are not understandable to the majority and seem naive. And their essence is correct and fundamental. Do not think that this will not happen now. A new Sablin may also appear. If he sincerely believed in what he was talking about, then he should be awarded the title of Hero. Because it is a great courage to speak out against the top authorities. So they can only in the navy. Only sailors. Glory to him and eternal memory! His name will still be carved in gold letters and recorded in the lists of heroes.

        I agree - an adventurer.
        However, the article is completely misrepresented - who, where and when stopped this ship.
        I am a direct participant in this stop.
        On November 8, 1975, our regiment, based in the city of Tukums, Latvian SSR, on the Yak-28 was raised by alarm.
        There was a lot of confusion, a lot of incomprehensible things. A technician came running from the parking lot to us in a high-rise and in a whisper: Misha, what happened - we hang the soldiers under frantic screams?
        After running around and having telephone conversations, the regiment commander (and he was running along with deputies with a VERY alarming physiognomy, we were put in the classroom and set the task: to prepare for military operations on ships in the Baltic Sea.
        Then the commander came and set the task already specified: in the Irbensky Strait, a ship with the number 500 on board, a guard.
        Work after detection only on command from the ground ...
        The weather was difficult, the lower edge from 400 to 600 m, flew in pairs with a minute interval.
        The first pair was the submarine Potapenko (deputy regiment regiment). He was the first to find this ship and, after commanding him from the ground, put a series in front of the ship and completed it.
        Mr. Porotikov was the second to board the ship - the head of the VOTP so far, with him this:
        - I see the goal, work! ...
        and so time 7 ...
        Then the team: - work on the ship.
        It worked well, from a series of 2 bombs exploded on the ship (OFAB-250-270 hung from it).
        The third line commander Captain Zaitsev jumped onto the target, also dropped BUT - as it turned out later (with fear, his eyes were big) on ​​a fishing trawler that happened to be in the area.
        Good - didn’t kill anyone.
        The crew of art. f-Omelyanenko - he was already banned from work, because the ship stopped, and from the direction of Liepaja our ships from Liepaja Naval Forces poured toward it in a crowd.
        Everyone else had a team to recruit the train and return home.
        Clouds struck - and there on the east side - Tu-16 with missiles under the wings.
        After landing, they didn’t let us out for half a day, they sat in the corridor in a high-rise on the floor.
        A bunch of popes flew in from Moscow and Riga. We consulted for a long time ...
        Then we were assembled in a soldier’s club and before us the Commander of the 15th VA, Commander Golubev (by the way, during the war, was led by Pokryshkina).
        He paced in front of the first row and broadcast:
        - so we decided to check your combat readiness on holidays in a serious way. They drove a barge into the Irbensky Strait (choked laughter in the audience - we saw this "barge" with our own eyes), ... stop it !!! - this is a laugh in the audience.
        Later:
        - categorically forbid any talk on this topic outside the airport, even in families ...
        That's how it was.
        And about the Su-24 mention is a fake.
        In 1975, in our 132 bad (2 regiments in Chernyakhovsk and one in Tukums), only one 24rd pok was retrained on the Su-63, which was based in Chernyakhovsk and from there, although they were also raised by alarm, there were no sorties.
        In those days, on the VEF transistor, I began to actively monitor the "voices of friends"
        And a few days later on Liberty I heard an article read by a Swedish correspondent that the newest Soviet watchman 128 meters long, equipped with modern weapons, made an attempt to leave the Riga raid on about. Gotland. But this was hindered by the country's air force.
        He noted in the article the confusion and absurd negotiations of the high command on the air unencrypted on the listening lines. But - he highly praised the actions of Soviet aviation by quickly intercepting the ship and preventing this departure.
        That's something like ...

You very specifically described the events from the point of view of an eyewitness. Very helpful evidence.

          But then, the same Colonel General Golubev was literally obscene deputy. The Air Force chief navigator broke off and said (I won’t vouch for verbatim, yet exactly 40 years have passed):
          - listen to the luminaries (with a mockery) - what is the probability of a single ship being hit by a pair of 4 OFAB-250-270 ?? !! - And I'll tell you - zero point # @ th tenths of a percent !!!
          - 3 pairs were bombed, the first on command - in front of the ship, and the remaining two hit the target !!! Let - one of them - not that! But he got the same !!!

      There are methods of political struggle against the existing regime, but there are hijacking of a military ship, disobedience to orders and attempted military blackmail. And this clearly needs to be distinguished and not made from a rebel hero. There were dissidents before him, and after him. We sat in psychiatric hospitals, fled to the West - who cares. But, being in the service of the Armed Forces, using the weapons entrusted to you to achieve political goals is treason and armed rebellion. And there was nothing to judge, and no need to shoot in the leg. To defeat, right away.

      And he was really ahead of time. After some 16 years, for the same, he would become the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, just as Pasha-Mercedes became the Minister of Defense ... I would also have done a business like Pasha-Mercedes (the earth is glassy to him!) In Grozny ...

      By the way, our liberals, heroizing traitors and provocateurs of all stripes, forget that you can sit quietly in a psychiatric hospital, like Novodvorskaya, you can quietly dump the hill and pee libel like Solzhenitsyn. Or you can run away abroad or cheat here to buy yourself bread with American butter through betrayal, like the "ideological fighters" Gordievsky and Penkovsky.

      By the way, let these would-be patriots and "fighters against the regime" look at Bukovsky. Croak, while his libels were in demand and paid for, and in his old age, when they stopped paying, because now there are such "croaks" on every corner (there is no one to cut them!), He began to earn money as child pornography ... Here it is, the whole point of "fighting the regime" - to snatch a fatter piece for your own belly. Someone goes to work for this, and someone sells their homeland ... They do not pay for treason - and child pornography will go to waste ...

The riot was doomed to failure - this seems to be like Sablin's naivety, but for such passionaries, it is not the chances of success that are important, but the action itself (in the film "Flight over nest of the cuckoo "actor D.

            No, I didn’t forget. There were the GKChP, there were five deputies who voted against the collapse of the USSR. Before that there was a criminal activity of Gorbachev, who gave up one position after another: the collapse of the socialist camp, the withdrawal of troops from eastern Europe, the collapse of the Warsaw block. He spoke out against the GKChP, but it was too late and hesitantly, in the hands of the media, they didn’t explain to the people who the enemy was, what the threats were. There were KGB officers who surrounded the Belovezhskaya criminal assembly, who had a full picture of what was happening, but did not stop the crime committed before their eyes, so they themselves committed a crime without fulfilling their a direct debt. And the entire alpha group went over to Yeltsin, supporting this criminal, the main culprit of the collapse of the USSR. There was no saber among KGB officers, an alpha group and among army officers and a nightmare happened, they calmly watched the allies surrender, how the great country.

          What is right then? Become a People’s Deputy, grab a moment and chop the truth-womb at the congress, you look and who will hear, and so - just cheating.
          I was very pleased with the moment -
          The rotting of the USSR began, the corruption of souls, which during the "perestroika" will be sold for jeans and a pack of gum. The fleet is a subtle and complex structure on which any unhealthy social organism immediately responds. The ship is a model of the state in miniature. Fever country - shakes and fleet. Suffice it to recall the uprisings in the fleet since the end of the Romanov empire. It is not surprising that at the time the fleet was at the peak of an accident. The ships were burning, colliding and sinking. In 1974, the year caught fire, exploded and sank the large anti-submarine ship "Brave". A year later, the flames on the huge “Moscow” helicopter carrier began to cloud, submarines were killed. Basically, everything was written off as “negligence of officials”. But this “negligence” had long and dangerous roots that went into an “ideological deficit”. People at the subconscious level felt that the USSR had deprived the ideological rod. Political window dressing, apathy, indifference and indiscriminate drunkenness engulfed society and the fleet itself. - Directly to the Pulitzer Prize pulls. laughing

            if, like you, you don’t know the charter and don’t take the oath, then of course, you had to creep into the deputies by cunning and wait for the moment to push the river from the rostrum! The problem is that the abscess has already matured and is visible to the naked eye and when it came to the podium it would be too late, such cowards as you and those who put me minus tossed the country!

They died of vodka and despair .. unemployment and loss of landmarks in life. Children and old people thrown to destruction, poverty and decay of society.

          Indeed, how can my examples be correct? Are these people not in uniform? Or didn’t they enter politics on the ship? At the time of the foregoing, I wore a military uniform and remember everything that was connected with this event ... One thing is good, I don’t care what people think about me. Otherwise, I would have turned gray for a long time. The main thing is that not sounds and sets of words are important to me, but thoughts in which these sounds and words are built. hi

          Somehow it came to my mind:
          "- And what did he see, the dead Falcon, in this desert without bottom and edge? Why do people like him, having died, embarrass the soul with their love for flying to heaven? What is clear to them there? But I could know all this, flying up into the sky at least for a short while.
          “He said and did. Curled into a ring, he threw it into the air and flashed in the sun with a narrow ribbon.
          “Born to crawl - cannot fly! .. Forgetting this, he fell on the stones, but did not kill himself, but laughed ...
          “- So that's the beauty of flying to the sky!” She is in the fall! .. Funny birds! Without knowing the earth, yearning for it, they strive high into the sky and seek life in the hot desert. It’s only empty. There is a lot of light, but there is no food there and there is no support for the living body. Why pride? Why reproaches? Then, in order to cover with her the frenzy of her desires and hide behind them her unsuitability for the work of life? Funny birds! .. But now they will not deceive me anymore! I myself know everything! I - saw the sky ... I took off into it, measured it, I knew the fall, but I did not crash, but only I believe in myself stronger. Let those who cannot love the earth live by deception. I know the truth. And I won’t believe their calls. Earth creation - I live by the earth.

            Why did you go about listing the accomplished politicians, experienced adult men and, moreover, the military. And now we look at the Sablin’s parameters, only the military is suitable (and then a deputy or propagandon). If the authorities took that it was unlikely that the winners would not be judged, and so woe to the vanquished! Give correct examples, I’ll help Arkady Gaidar, though I didn’t have power, but fought for it as part of a large, well-organized, with clear goals and objectives of the Bolshevik party. hi

      At present, on the territory of the former USSR, capitalism of the oligarchic type, with some elements of socialism still preserved. Of course, the bourgeoisie! An interesting detail: there is a fusion of the state apparatus with the financial oligarchy, i.e. she becomes the head of the state. For example: in "Ukraine" the head of state is an oligarch (Poroshenko), or the head of state becomes an oligarch (Yanukovych). Elements of feudalism are clearly visible in the republics of Central Asia.

We tried to drag the feudal state into socialism and communism. But they did not have a capitalist stage of development. And when the USSR collapsed, they immediately came to their native feudal system.

No. Are they bought by the bourgeoisie? Also not, rather, the bourgeoisie is subordinate to them. Familiar guys somehow made up family relationships of senior officials at work.

    Sablin, in my opinion, had no responsibility for the country. It is rightly noted by Oleg Frolov, if you want to engage in politics, take off your epaulettes.
    After him, other creatures appeared (I do not call them people, although in my order books there are decrees signed by them) that destroyed our country.
    Starting in 1979, I had to go to many different countries (on military issues), I can say that if we did not feed other countries, the people of the USSR would have high incomes. Take a look now. Unemployment among young people has reached a terrifying level, and most importantly, young people do not work in their specialty. This I say not by hearsay, in addition to the main work, I head the technical department at a technical university. Compare the income of 10% of the richest people in the country and 50% of the rest of the population. This is a country’s security term that should be controlled by the government. Otherwise, the liberals will again agitate the people. I have the honor.

        Dear Vyacheslav, you are right. I’m talking about this and that this index should not exceed 20 (according to experts). Since 1979, by decision of the Government, I headed the GU of one of the defense ministries. Prior to that, he was the Chief Designer of combat systems. So, I always made sure that the Chief Designers of the enterprises subordinate to me had earnings at the director level. And there were more than 50 enterprises. At the moment, they forgot about it, and this is very bad.
        For example, I, as the head of the State Institution, had a salary of 600 rubles, the Minister 1500 rubles, and the Chairman of the Government 2000 rubles. The head of the department at the university is 450 rubles, the professor is 400 rubles. A cooperative apartment (3 rooms) in Leningrad (we bought it and lived in it before moving to Moscow) cost 9000 rubles. I have the honor.

And now I’m just afraid to give the numbers, yes, actually they are on the Internet. And where is the higher level of income difference with us or in the United States?

          And I, for example, knew a milling machine operator at a defense plant. So a Dedok, a simple milling machine operator, received 400-450 on a deal, as a professor. True, the milling machine operator was unique. The factory workers said that they could be counted on one hand for the whole Union. But - nevertheless ...

      Spit on his goals, Sablin chose the criminal methods and had to answer for his crime, not leaving the captain’s bridge. What did his captain regret, shot in the leg? It was necessary to bring down on the spot, a humanist, damn it ...

      Why do our young people, who themselves grew up under "democracy", do not understand in any way - the Motherland gave you weapons to defend it, the Motherland, from an external enemy. And it is a crime to use this weapon against the Motherland for any good purpose. No options.

      It seems that those who admire Sablin themselves did not serve a day. Either the students rode on deferrals, or simply sloped away from the army. A person who has served in the army at least urgently, must understand what politics is and what armed rebellion is. One crime can outlaw any, the best goals. And if he hadn’t been a political officer on the ship, but commanded a part of the Strategic Missile Forces, standing on the database? Would you threaten to gasp around Moscow? The whole world in ruins, together with the Politburo?

Power only listens when the hearth of a military alarm sounds and the glow of artillery shells rings. Only this way and not otherwise. He remained faithful to the oath, for he did not open fire on his own. But he could. Captain could shoot or get rid of him. I didn’t shoot. He understood what he was doing. He knew that he would die. He chose death to shameful decay. And if he believed in the ideas that he voiced, he was certainly a HERO and a martyr for his people, for he had given his life for him. You can be faithful to either the homeland or the authorities. Did not think about it? Then give you an example of Stauffenberg. Having remained loyal to Germany, he went against Hitler in order to save his homeland from defeat and almost death. He understood that this was treason, he understood that he would perish, BUT WENT TO IT! So do HEROES. This is a special kind of people. They do not become. They are born and such people are able to turn the world around.

And there, even if you eat your political opponents for breakfast, petrodollars will pour out with a broad hand instead of raising the standard of living of their citizens.

          You can't say that: "It is built incorrectly." It's just that after the death of the main builder, the rabid foremen led the people in the other direction, from time to time distracting them by reclaiming virgin lands and taking away arable land in other zones, turning rivers, building reinforced concrete fortifications along the borders, which took a lot of human strength and state funds.

          There, above in the article, is the text of Sablin’s alleged speech. You can read ... True, it does not say how the Soviet people enthusiastically accepted the speeches of the old senile, outlined his literary masterpieces and delved into especially the public kiss of old men ... laughing

    An interesting figure, this Sablin, for me personally - more positive. There were really huge problems in the country and people saw it, and the most "hot" (like Sablin) tried to do something. This does not mean that he is definitely a hero, but the attempt is valid.
    Well, statements like "the army is out of politics", "take off your shoulder straps and be engaged in politics" - I think these words are NOT correct. Still "ancient" smile Greek Pericles said, and everyone repeated after him (Bismarck, Churchill) that if you are not involved in politics, then it will deal with you. So she took up our people and the military in particular in 1991, the collapse of the country everyone remembers. As a result, our army found itself in fields and camps instead of convenient garrisons in Germany, etc. What were the officers thinking, interestingly, smoking near the tent? I honestly served, did not engage in politics, and as a result allowed a handful of traitors to lower my country, do not indulge in it at all. Any skin bought can be in power and do what you want. This is not a call for revolution, but people in uniform should also think with their heads

      The army is not out of politics. AND no one forbids officers to participate in the political process. It’s forbidden to use the weapon given to you to achieve political goals.

      Why all of you, defenders of Sablin, you don’t understand a simple thing - do politics, but without weapons, and, moreover, arbitrarily captured. A soldier with a weapon does not have the right to take a cartridge without an order - a military crime. And then the ship hijacked - and someone justifies it! Yes, even if he was Jesus Christ - he hijacked a warship, did not obey the order - a criminal!

      Do not like orders - quit the Army, although there are no less commanders for citizens, they only command not on command, but all at once and in different directions. In the meantime, in the Army - obey orders, appeal after execution. There is no democracy in the army, or then there is no army. The army has an ORDER. Which is enforceable. Failure to comply with an order or unauthorized actions without an order is a crime. And with a weapon - a felony.

      Of course, Democrats who have just sat up and stayed in higher education institutions, which are now more divorced than the heel before, cannot be understood ... How is it - one person commands another ...

              From the point of view of historical materialism, yes. Indeed, even in feudal Russia, the peasant community had its own rights (of course, scanty, but for the theory of state and law this does not matter). It is another matter that the wisdom of public administration lies precisely in the fact that declarative rights are filled with real content. Small, but real. Then a system of "levers and valves" appears, which allows you to manipulate society and release steam in time, so as not to rip off the lid. Tsarism too late realized this simple truth, the Soviet party leadership also fell into complacency, combined with lethargy. The results were similar.

It’s not the Anglo-Saxons that stuffed pockets of gold with this Sablin, and he didn’t get drunk by drinking smile but advocated the idea and as subsequent events show - the right idea, correct that changes are needed, we go the wrong way and people flee the country slowly and whisper about good life and clean toilets in Finland, for example (like our neighbor at that time ) Here, of course, it is difficult to determine the scope of the army in the political life of the country, but these same politicians use the army to the fullest, in which case, it turns out in peacetime the army is a headless robot, where the paunchy uncle politician poked his finger, we shoot there.
        This is to the fact that the officers can actively participate in political life, for example, arrange some sort of officer meetings at various levels, where a consolidated position of people in uniform on various political processes would be expressed, especially in troubled times.

            These Russian officers were forced to use their position and weapons in the interests of the state and people, if you carefully read the story.
            But the palace coups (and their attempts) were under the Soviet regime. Soviet officers participated in at least one successful coup in 1953 with the elimination of Beria.
            Revolutions do not happen every day. Now, if Sablin’s attempt had been successful, there would have been a Great .... revolution, and there would have been no collapse of the USSR in 1991 with subsequent monstrous events. Maybe.

    I understand the author’s desire to try to see something sensible, far-sighted and heroic in Sablin’s deed. But in my opinion, he took advantage of people's trust in the officer. No matter what will the crew did not subordinate to, this is stupid! Without conscripts, with some officers and midshipmen, the ship is nowhere I’m personally interested in the further fate of the officers of this ship, how many destinies did the hero break, and how did their career end? He, on the contrary, took advantage of the fact that the crew wasn’t harmonious, otherwise he would have failed!

    It is impossible to measure a person’s actions on the principle of black and white. Of course, Sablin was a thinking, honest man, worried about the fate of his homeland. But the crew of the ship set up large, I didn’t think about people (or didn’t I think the forest was cut, chips fly?). By the way, or I looked through inattention, the article does not say about the fate of the crew.

      The crew had every opportunity to stop Sablin! They themselves did not want to, or they averted themselves. Which, in a cross-section, is an indicator of the mood of the Soviet society. There is an obvious presence of latent dissatisfaction with the current situation in the country, which resulted in 1991. Nobody wanted to defend the "Soviet" power and the symptoms, as we saw already in 1975. Now many have forgotten, or rather underestimate, the direction and intensity of the then mood, of course set "perestroika" anti-Soviet propaganda, but its roots lie in an earlier period. The reasons for IMHO are the bankruptcy of the Soviet ideology and sociology, which turned into postulates communist ideas, the study and development of which were replaced by nagging, work "for show", tk. the material through the efforts of their "generals" has become "reinforced concrete" and overwhelming!

    The jumble of opinions only confirms that there can be no consensus here. For me, only one thing is clear, that the "talent" of the demon of the revolution - Trotsky and his followers, until now, and after all, so many years have passed, yearns to plunge the world into the furnace of the world revolution. Good intentions for which you can ruin millions. True, none of them wants to be a simple person. Only in front, on a dashing horse with a saber bald. I think that the political officer is from this category. If you follow the logic of some commentators, then the Ukrainian Nazis are right in their desire to establish some order in Ukraine. But what about - they are heroes ready to defend their "truth" with arms in hand. And further. Over the past quarter of a century, a huge number of "scientists - historians" have bred, trying to make a name for themselves by praising various personalities, then Kolchak, then Vlasov, then Nikolai II, whom most of his contemporaries did not take seriously, and others, in search of exclusively negative in the Soviet regime (decossackization - cruelty, industrialization - not all indicators are met, collectivization - ruined the real owners, repression - far-fetched and unjustified, WWII - too many dead). So, they literally "create" history, pulling someone (such as Sablin) out of oblivion and trying to find something positive in them, while others, on the contrary, are consigned to oblivion, in every possible way minimizing their feat (Stakhanov, Panfilov's men, Matrosov , Gastello and thousands of others).

      This does not mean that everyone will survive without revolutions. There is a world worse than any war. Look, for example, in the next branch, at the British historical example of "how sheep sat people down." But no revolutions, except for the industrial one! The propaganda of sentiments "if only there was no war" and became, in many respects, the cause of the collapse of the USSR - a generation of infantile egoists was raised.

From strong emotions he drove the ship to Sweden, got rams and courses (when the lighthouse passed, the course was to Sweden - 43 miles, a few hours).

    however, here's what is remarkable for evaluating events

    В 1994 last year, the military collegium of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation reviewed Sablin’s case “taking into account new circumstances” and re-qualified it from “treason to the Motherland” to articles on military crimes (abuse of power, disobedience and resistance to superiors), the totality of which changed the sentence to 10 years of imprisonment. It was pointed out that Sablin and his ally, sailor Alexander Shein, are not subject to full rehabilitation.

    thus in the wake of Yeltsin’s democracy, a hero could be made of him, however ...

        Have you ever seen the text of the oath of the USSR or Russia in your eyes? I’m not talking about reading or accepting their comrades (fellow citizens) before the ranks. Where is the oath talking about the political system and loyalty to him ??? Who apparently became the legal successor of the USSR is unknown to you.

          There are no successors. Either the USSR or nothing. If you think like that, then you will come to the point of betraying the country. There was an illegal separation of the republics from the RSFSR, a change in the political system, and the rewriting of the constitution and laws. The result of these actions is out in the cemeteries. This is a betrayal of the country and people. And there are no successors here!

          for you, as for the cleverest, I took the oath only once. The Charter says in plain text what, how and why, in the oath, it is written in plain text.
          As a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, when joining the Armed Forces, I take the oath and solemnly swear to be an honest, brave, disciplined, vigilant warrior, to strictly keep military and state secrets, to abide by the Constitution of the USSR and Soviet laws, unquestioningly comply with all military charters and orders commanders and commanders.
          I swear to conscientiously study military affairs, to take care of military and national property in every way and to the last breath be devoted to my people, my Soviet Motherland and the Soviet government.
          I am always ready, on the orders of the Soviet Government, to defend my Homeland - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and, as a warrior of the Armed Forces, I swear to defend it courageously, skillfully, with dignity and honor, not sparing my blood and life itself to achieve a complete victory over enemies .
          If I violate my solemn oath, then let me suffer the harsh punishment of Soviet law, the universal hatred and contempt of the Soviet people.


          Read the charter
          The Charter of the Internal Service of the Armed Forces of the USSR:
          Chapter 1. Military personnel and the relationship between them.
          Section One. General duties of military personnel.
          Point 1. A soldier of the Armed Forces of the USSR is the defender of his homeland - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
          A soldier is personally responsible for protecting his homeland. It should: protect the interests of the Soviet state, help strengthen its power and authority, holy and indestructible (!) Comply with the Constitution of the USSR and Soviet laws, fulfill the military oath, be disciplined, honest, truthful, courageous and not spare his strength and life itself when fulfilling military duty ....
          And so on and so forth. Point 3 is especially indicative:
          ... A serviceman ... is obliged to completely fulfill his military duty to the Soviet Motherland in battle. Nothing, including the threat of death, should force a serviceman of the USSR Armed Forces to surrender.
          Treason to the Motherland is a grave crime against the Soviet people.

      You do not confuse. A person who, out of personal greedy motives, is trying to violate the Oath and a person who, believing in ideals, is trying to intervene in the process of decay of an entire country and people, at the cost of breaking the Oath. These are completely different people. Yes, he is a separatist. BUT he is not a traitor if he believed in what he was talking about. Sometimes there is a situation when it is NECESSARY to violate the Oath in order to protect our people and country from death. This is very difficult and many will call you an enemy and a traitor, but in reality this is not so, only the initiates know the truth, and the Gods will judge.

And if he wrote, especially about a multi-party system, then how could he graduate from a higher political school? He wouldn’t be allowed close after such letters. Do not forget that the correspondence (especially of this kind) was perfectly illustrated by a special department.

    USSR destroyed Trotskyism?

    But the ideological basis of the USSR was Trotskyism.
    Stalin outplayed Trotsky, but remained under US control.
    The struggle of Stalin and his entourage against the Trotskyists was not successful.
    Hence the defeat of 1941, and the post-war heyday of Bandera on the outskirts, and the assassination of Stalin.
    And he was replaced by the Trotskyist Khrushchev.

    Sablin is an idealist, a complete analogy of Lieutenant Schmidt. Completely ill-conceived, unprepared and untimely. And he killed himself and people who trusted him.

While the ruling elite squandered and transferred overseas national property, he was thinking about reorganizing the country. And the very quick collapse of the Union, confirmed that he was right. If you have not forgotten, then the oath is given to the people, not the authorities, and the people of Sablin did not betray!
    Following your logic, the Novocherkassk executions were also justified.

    And judging by the speed with which the authorities dealt with Sablin, she was very afraid of him that they would come after him.

    Sablin violated the oath and the Charter. Unambiguously and without options. In any country in the world and in any army, this is punished as harshly as possible. To what extent his convictions justified such a crime is an acute question. As a rule, all "revolutionaries in uniform" are a priori suicide bombers, since they commit a deliberate crime.
    The fact that Sablin the adventurer is an idealist also generally requires no evidence. Moreover, the cheapest injury - since he failed to understand the elementary meaninglessness and danger of his actions, not only for himself but also for those whom he led. What can I say?

    Sablin has developed a detailed program for rebuilding society. Sablin was distinguished by high political activity and already wrote to Khrushchev, expressing his thoughts on the purity of party ranks. is he advocated for a multi-party system, freedom of speech and discussion, changing the order of elections in the party and country. The officer decided to publicize his program, pointing out serious errors and the decomposition of the Soviet leadership, from the “platform” of the Watchdog BPC.
    Yes, this could have prevented the collapse of the collapse, there was enough time.
    ... he stated that pleadership of the USSR departed from Leninist principles. Sablin suggested that the ship unauthorized transfer to Kronstadt, declare it an independent territory, on behalf of the crew, require the leadership of the party and country to provide him with the opportunity to speak on Central Television with his views. According to another version, Sablin planned to lead the ship to Leningrad, to embark on a raid near the Aurora and from there go on air every day, urging USSR citizens to the communist revolution, to change the Brezhnev party-state apparatus and establish social justice.
    Lenin just taught that only a party can prepare and pick up changes ... One person cannot do this. The one-party system did not provide opportunities for reforming the system. Sablin is a lone hero. His name will be preserved in history next to Vysotsky, Zverev ...

      If you want, he did not choose the right path to fight the party. A good example is Gorbachev. So he did the right thing. He made his way to the very top and from there gradually developing economic and national instability, he began the collapse of the existing communist system.

    And about the sailors of the Godkids, and about the midshipmen of the chests who had everything on the drum! And about the officers who stupidly like sheep went after Sablin! But then, before the ranks, their shoulder straps were ripped off !! He wanted to go to Kronstad like that !! Look at the map with its course and everything will become clear !! It has long passed the turning point on the course to the Gulf of Finland and, increasing its speed to full speed, swept into Swedish territorial waters !! He was stopped 12 miles before them! In neutral waters! Fucking fucking !! How many people have broken their careers and life too !! Good worthy officers !! So he was spanked correctly. Deserved !!! But what really revealed this case is that it’s definitely the decomposition of officers in the ranks of the USSR Navy.

    I participated in a military parade on November 7, 1975 in Riga. It (parade) always took place on the Komsomol embankment. On the Daugava there was always a system of warships. That year there was this BOD. The next day they were dismissed and saw an empty place in the ranks. Rumors circulated that the ship had been hijacked. At the evening calibration beginning. course announced this officially. Calling Sablin a hero is simply stupid. If we discard the version of the banal hijacking of the latest at that time BOD for the cordon, then this is an extremely stupid and simply dangerous adventure. It's a crazy idea to speak on TV and radio from a stolen warship.

      I agree, if considered strategically and tactically. And provided that he really believed in what he was saying, because if it was a lie and he wanted to blame it over a hill, then he was a traitor and they shot him correctly.

    As an officer there is no excuse for him! Likewise, the betrayal of the motherland has not been proven. But what prompted him is an interesting question. The deputy politician (and he himself tore the path), the ideological treatment was carried out seriously, but somewhere there was a skew in teaching. The person was convinced of the triumph of justice, and forgot to say what justice can triumph. As if the medical board was weak at admission, or was silent about head injuries. It is an interesting fact, but it may have been deliberately misled
    he gathered 13 officers and 13 midshipmen
    smacks of mysticism.

    The heroes are "Varyag", "Korean", brig Mercury, "Sibiryakov" and many others who carried out the order. Potemkin, Ochakov, Watchdog-rebels who violated the oath, order and, accordingly, were subject to disarmament or destruction. Submission to the order is the basis of the army and the state, otherwise they will end ...

    Then we were assembled in a soldier’s club and before us the Commander of the 15th VA, Commander Golubev (by the way, during the war, was led by Pokryshkina).
    He paced in front of the first row and broadcast:
    - so we decided to check your combat readiness on holidays in a serious way. They drove a barge into the Irbensky Strait (choked laughter in the audience - we saw this "barge" with our own eyes), ... stop it !!! - this is a laugh in the audience.
    Later:
    - categorically forbid any talk on this topic outside the airport, even in families ...
    That's how it was.

    As they say having ears Yes hears !!! And having a brain ,,,,, Yes thinks

      Shakespeare! Sonnet 66 th:
      "I call death, I could not look at the power of the bole,
      How a decent husband perishes in poverty
      And the villain lives in beauty and hall;
      How does the confidence of the pure souls hang around?
      How chastity threatens shame
      How honors are given to scoundrels
      As the power of niknet before arrogant gaze,
      As everywhere in life triumphant rogue;
      As the art of arbitrariness mocks,
      As mindlessness rules the mind,
      As in the clutches of evil painfully languish
      All that we call Good ... "

        All day I waited a minute to go down
        In the basement of my secret, to the faithful chests.
        Happy day! can i today
        In the sixth chest (the chest is still incomplete)
        Pour a handful of gold accumulated.
        Not much, it seems, but little by little
        Treasures are growing. I read somewhere
        That the king once his soldiers
        He told me to tear down the earth handful in a heap,
        And the proud hill rose - and the king
        Could ozira from above with fun
        And the valley covered with white tents
        And the sea where the ships ran.
        So I, bringing a handful of poor
        I will be accustomed to my tribute here to the basement,
        Ascended my hill - and from its height
        I can look at everything that is subject to me.
        What is not subject to me? like a demon
        From here I can rule the world;
        If only I want, the halls will be erected;
        In my magnificent gardens

        And the muses will bring their tribute to me,
        And a free genius will enslave me ..

    "It is assumed ... that, firstly, the current state apparatus will be thoroughly cleaned up, and in some nodes it will be broken up and thrown into the dustbin of history, since it is deeply infected with nepotism, bribery, careerism, arrogant towards the people, and secondly, to the landfill the electoral system that turns the people into a faceless mass must be thrown out. Thirdly, all conditions that give rise to the omnipotence and lack of control of state bodies on the part of the popular masses must be eliminated. " - it seems to be relevant today, although here you can add liberalism and outright sabotage by our officials of the decrees of the country's top leadership.

      These features are inherent in the state administrative apparatus everywhere and at all times! The Soviet was not so bad, but everything is learned in comparison, and the closed nature of Soviet society prevented these comparisons from being made. At the same time, propaganda trumpeted about a certain ideal, "utopian" society. What conclusions should an honest man come to looking at this "fork"? Many others have fallen into the same trap.

    He formed his attitude to those distant events long ago. Sablin is a state criminal who ruined the lives of crew members who agree and disagree. If I really wanted to show disagreement, I would go to Red Square and express my principles. Why was the crew involved in this adventure? One can in every way relate to the past structure of our Motherland. I know that many are nostalgic, and many remember with a negative. I respect the opinion of both the first and the second, for I know them as people of deeply decent, sincere and honest people. So, returning to Sablin, I can assume that he also suffered from some kind of functional mental disorder, and attempts to present him as such an incomprehensible "hero" is simply slyness.

    Well, I got to the desktop computer, otherwise it is difficult to write detailed answers from the phone.
    Let's now decide who to consider a traitor and who is a hero. Can the military turn weapons against civilians, by order of the authorities in peacetime? And can the army to change the current government to save the country?

    - Who, in the end, were the tankers who shot the White House - the people who "carried out the order", or the executioners of the Yeltsin regime, who shot unarmed and, by the way, legally elected MPs from tanks?

    - How to evaluate the actions of the army in Egypt, in the light of the recent events of the overthrow of the also elected President-Islamist Mursi? Salvation of the country of Al-Sisi, or usurpation of power by him, relying on the army?

    There was another article here about such a "pseudo-hero" from Vympel, who openly supported Yeltsin and boastfully declares this http://topwar.ru/34362-alfa-i-vympel-na-lezvii-grazhdanskoy-voyny.html #


    I’m more interested in another, why, even in the most dense and terrible 90s, none of the officers made a single attempt to raise a rebellion. This is really a mystery to me. They say that Rokhlin and Swan were going, but these are just rumors. With Kvachkov the situation is not clear either.

    “I, a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, entering the ranks of the Armed Forces, take the oath and solemnly swear to be an honest, brave, disciplined, vigilant warrior, strictly keep military and state secrets, unquestioningly comply with all military regulations and orders of commanders and commanders. I swear in good faith to study military affairs, to cherish military and national property in every way and, to the last breath, to be devoted to my People, my Soviet Motherland and the Soviet Government. I am always ready, by order of the Soviet Government, to defend my Homeland - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and, as a warrior of the Armed Forces, I swear to defend it courageously, skillfully, with dignity and honor, not sparing my blood and life itself to achieve a complete victory over enemies . If I violate this solemn oath of mine, then let me suffer the harsh punishment of Soviet law, the general hatred and contempt of the workers ”


    What his actions are contrary to the oath.

    But here we are, at the time of our service in 1991, what have we done with respect to the USSR?

    My deceased friend told me about the uprising on the “Watchtower” in my ear in November 1975, in Moscow, when I was returning from vacation through the capital, on the day of the uprising, the officer on duty at the Air Force communications lodge.
    Any mention of Sablin in those years was in immense trouble. Because few people knew about the uprising.
    But = ideoluh, foul drones-revisionists have classified and the world's first jet ram Ram Captain Eliseev and were silent about his exploit.
    These were impotent idololuhi.
    It is logical that under such a personnel policy, neither in the days of the GKChP nor the Bialowieza betrayal, nor the shooting of the White House, there was not a single company to shoot the traitors, and Rokhlin and Lebed, having no time to do anything, were destroyed, but they all wagged the tail with a stool ...
    Well drained the officers .... From Sablin and started
