Attempt of “decommunization” failed in Donetsk


On the night of January 27, around 3: 50, many residents of the center of Donetsk woke up from a loud explosion. Of course, the front-line city is not surprised by such menacing sounds, and in Kiev and Kuibyshev districts in general there are rarely a day without an ominous roar. But to thunder right in the center - it is still not such an ordinary phenomenon. In addition, it was not similar to the arrival of a projectile. It turned out - the act of sabotage.

The crime was directed against the 7,5-meter monument to VI Lenin, standing in the very heart of Donetsk - on the square bearing the name of the leader. This monument was erected in 1967, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution.

The blast was loud enough. It was heard not only in the center, but also for several kilometers. But the result was not at all what the organizers of the terrorist act expected. Monument survived. In the Soviet years, everything was created conscientiously. Were damaged shoe statue of Lenin and a pedestal. Moreover, glass was cracked in several houses. It can be said that the notorious “decommunization” failed.

Monument to Lenin was one of the symbols of the “Russian Spring” 2014 of the year. Its participants assess the importance of one or another episode in different ways. Someone says that the main thing was the seizure of the regional administration building, for someone the struggle for the liberation of the people's governor Pavel Gubarev was particularly important, and there are those for whom protection of the monument to Lenin from visiting militants of the Right Sector gained great importance.

In turn, the pravoseki also gave considerable meaning to the struggle against the monuments of the leader. With some frenzy, the thrashing fellows fought with them in Kiev, Kharkov and other cities! The overthrow of the largest monument was considered almost equal to the seizure of the entire city. This was partly true, because it was not just acts of vandalism, but also a demonstration of victory over the inhabitants of these cities. Low victory over unarmed people. It is no secret that the destruction of monuments was often accompanied by brutal beatings of those who dared to go out and resist the vandals.

And, of course, one of the tasks of the neo-fascists was the reprisal of the monument to V.I. Lenin in Donetsk, and at the same time - at people who did not want to give unleashed hooligans the opportunity to act with impunity. Then it failed. And the struggle for this symbol rallied many people who later took an active part in further events.

Now, when the situation has changed, when the People's Republics are not just created, but they also manage to develop quite successfully, the supporters of Ukrohunts are fighting against them with the help of terrorist acts and sabotage. And an attempt to destroy the monument, about which pravoseki once “broke off his teeth” is one of the acts of this vile struggle.

The place of the attack was examined by the investigators. Found traces of improvised explosive devices. Surveillance cameras recorded two men who were selected to the monument.

The head of the administration of the Head of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko, Maksim Leschenko, strongly condemned the terrorist act. “Fighting the past, with one’s own heritage, with history - this is a disease. We will not allow the penetration of this virus by Ukraine. These are consequences of the imposition of an ideology that is unacceptable to us. They cannot defeat us and try to defeat monuments, ”he said.

You can have a different attitude to the personality of Ilyich, but it is no coincidence that supporters of ukrofashism organized “Leninopad” throughout Ukraine. The ideological heirs of the bloody Bandera were thus belatedly avenged by the Communists and the entire Soviet people for the defeat of fascism in the 1945 year, as well as for the fact that in the following years the Bandera gangs were also defeated.

Annoying Pravosekov and another: the fact that Lenin was one of the symbols of the state in which both Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, and Uzbeks, and many other nations lived and built together.

There are people among patriots who have a negative attitude towards Lenin. It is their right, but you still need to think: why is rabid Russophobia so often intertwined with riotous anti-communism? Is it not because the attacks directed against the whole of the Soviet are not really directed simply against symbols? And against the Russian people in general. Against the people, in the history of which were the Great October Socialist Revolution, and the Great Victory over fascism, and the construction of a powerful Soviet state. All this is an integral part of the story. Throw it out - and throw out the soul of the people ...

Is it a coincidence that the day that began with the undermining of the monument was also marked by fierce attacks on the northern and western outskirts of Donetsk? In the areas of the Airport, Spartak, and Volvo-Center it was “hot” - there had been no shelling of such intensity for a long time.

A week earlier, on January 21, the news came that in Kiev authorities plan to spoil the appearance of one of the huge monuments - the statue of the Motherland, which stands on the banks of the Dnieper. From her shield they want to remove the emblem of the Soviet Union.

This majestic monument is located on the territory of the museum dedicated to the victory in the Great Patriotic War. The winner was the USSR and it is quite logical that on the shield of the Motherland is the emblem of the winning country. For those who are trying to rewrite history, there is nothing sacred. “Decommunization” comes from above, mercilessly tormenting the souls of the veterans who mined the Victory.

But Donetsk is not Kiev. Here the act of this very “decommunization” was shameful from the very beginning, was carried out under the cover of night and failed foolishly. On the same day, restoration work began, so very soon there will not be a trace of this clumsy terrorist act.

      Monuments to Lenin are not only the strongest, but also avenging their offenders. So something bad will surely happen to these losers too ... lol

      On September 28, during the demolition of the monument to Lenin by nationalists on Freedom Square in Kharkov, two detachments of Red Cross doctors rendered assistance to 10 victims. The nature of the injuries that physicians encountered mainly corresponded to those received in hand-to-hand fights: dissection of the scalp, abrasions on the face, and so on.

      Lenin began to take revenge on the Nazis already during the demolition of the monument: one vandal fell upside down from the pedestal, the second broke his arm, the third knocked out his eye with a broken cable, and the fourth broke his spine. The radical, who had lost his eye in the battle with the monument, declared in a fever that "it was worth it."

    Everything is strictly logical.
    1) Maidan Ukrainians are faithful servants of their American masters, so they are. like their masters, they hate and are afraid of both Lenin and communist ideas, in principle, to stupor.
    2) Lenin is a symbol of the common historical fate of Russia and Ukraine, a symbol of a single strong state, respectively, this symbol is hated by Maidan workers since their main ideological idea is the gap between Russia and Ukraine.
    Hence their so stubborn and fierce war with the monuments of Lenin.

      A shared historical fate?
      If it were not for Lenin and other commies, there would be no "common historical fate", there would be one fate - the fate of Russia, without all these Ukrainians, Baltic states, and other Belarusians and all * stans.

        yes you don’t know the story ... and the tsar is for the Russian-Japanese ... and for the first world where he should burn .... he studied poorly at school .... and the communists just corrected the tsar’s mistakes ... and the second world like France or hats would have lost ... the paddlers also talked a lot before the war ... but in the end, only a zilch remained from the French army in a month ... and the Americans attacked Germany ... when the USSR had already defeated the Fritz

          They corrected the tsar’s mistakes by dividing one mono-ethnic state into a dozen pseudo-states, which later separated and took away the territory that the empire had been collecting with the blood of Russian soldiers for hundreds of years?
          How many died thanks to the Germans? 27 million by the most bloody estimates? Through the efforts of the Communists, the population of Russia decreased from 290 million to 147.
          What was the area of ​​the USSR? 22.5 million square kilometers
          The area of ​​Russia is 17 million.
          So much for the commies’s reign, for 80 years the population has not changed (as in 1926, 148 million), and the country's territory has decreased by a quarter. Here they are, numbers and results. With such leaders no external enemies are needed

    “If the Ukrainians really succeed in tearing off 30 million Little Russians from the Russian people, then the great Russian Empire will come to an end.”

    “Why do we Great Russians, oppressing more nations than any other nation, have to refuse to recognize the right to secession of Poland, Ukraine, Finland ... If Finland, Poland, Ukraine separate from Russia, there is nothing wrong with that. What's so bad. Whoever says this is a chauvinist ”

    “Nobody oppressed the Poles like the Russian people”

    “... it is necessary to introduce the strictest rules regarding the use of the national language in the foreign republics that are members of our union, and check these rules especially carefully. There is no doubt that under the pretext of unity of the railway service, under the pretext of unity of the fiscal, etc. with us, with our modern apparatus, a lot of abuses of a truly Russian property will penetrate ”

    “Protect Russian foreigners from the invasion of that truly Russian man, a Great Russian chauvinist, in essence, a scoundrel and a rapist”

    Do you know who said all this? V.I. Lenin. Here are the sources of quotes:

    * 3 On the question of nationalities or on the “autonomy” of the MSS, v. 45

    If not for this scum - Donetsk and Lugansk would have been part of Russia and would not have known the horrors of Hohlyatsky nationalism now. Monuments to this ghoul on the territory of the Russian Federation are like a monument to Mamay, Hitler or Chikatilo, full of sur and insanity in its purest form.

      It is not Lenin's merit that his monuments became such symbols. The Donetsk people will want to remove it someday, they will remove it. Although, it is unlikely. The monument itself on the square looks good, and the attitude to Ilyich already as to Tutankhamun is an ancient history). And the mummy even exists somewhere.

      And so, from where ukroTV decided that the DNR residents themselves wanted to undermine the monument! Moreover, they explained that GDP itself opened its eyes to all this. Because - Urya! they, too, are felling monuments to Lenin.
      And before calling Lenin scum, it would be better to think - under the Ukrainian SSR you suffered the same way? And what was unseen in the world in terms of social benefits, education, medicine, was created thanks to him, how is it? nothing? Everyone can have mistakes. And the people who are "at the top" can just hurt others. And who knows where the Nazis would have been during the Second World War, if there were no working class in Ukraine that really expanded and developed thanks to Lenin's accessions. Be sure that the rural population would quickly go over to the side of Bandera.

        And before calling Lenin scum, it would be better to think - did you also suffer in the Ukrainian SSR?

        Someone is hammering into the eyes and does not see the country flag next to my nickname? Who are we"? Residents of Siberia?
        And what was unprecedented in the world for social benefits, education, medicine, was created thanks to him, how is it?

        At whose expense was the feast reminded? In the USSR there were only 2 donor republics that produced more than they consumed.
        where would the Nazis be during the Second World War, if Ukraine did not have the working class that really expanded and developed thanks to the accessions of Lenin.

        The working class in the Ukrainian SSR developed thanks to the transfer of Khokhlov Russian land? What? But how then did the working class develop in the rest of the USSR?
        And yes, the Nazis were stopped at Leningrad, stopped at Stalingrad. But they went through the territory of Hochland like France. Even the Belarusians, for all their small numbers, gnawed the Fritzes through the forests and swamps to the last, but what about the ragulie? "My hut is on the edge, zhinka, pig and apple tree"

    Actually, in such conditions (the front-line zone), local people enter special marks in the documents and conduct constant patrolling with checking documents, people will understand this for their safety. And DRGs will not feel so free. It's time to end with the mess. Yes, and some of the local Natsiks can, in short, more seriously need the security service to work.

    I am not a supporter of Lenin, but to blow up monuments is meanness and stupidity. This is part of our story. OUR. And even more so in Donetsk, where it really is a symbol of the people's struggle for justice. People defended him. And they did the right thing, there is nothing to restore their own rules not at home. So let them out, they’ll protect the bandar. And when the power in all of Ukraine changes, the monuments to Bandera will simply be demolished as planned, and no one will defend, because his supporters are fascists, and then they will have to think about their skin. And all the destroyed monuments to Lenin, I think, will be restored, although far from immediately - what means are needed! Yes, in a impoverished country!

    People! Understand! It's not about the monuments! If the demolition of the monument would change the era and way of life, which would be much higher compared to the demolished monument, it would be easier to live. But the point is completely different. If each of us obeyed the commandments of the Lord, then it would be all the same in what society we live. That is, the neighbor loves the neighbor and repays him according to his labors, does not kill, does not steal, does not want the neighbor’s wife, is not proud of anything else, anything else. And it would be all happiness and prosperity. However, since we live in a society where a person does not keep the commandments and lives by exploiting his neighbor, there will be an eternal confrontation between good and evil. And everyone perceives good and evil in their own way. Everyone has their own truth. Truth is one, but not everyone is given to understand it. Capitalism is a dead end branch of the development of mankind, as history and modern reality show, and therefore socialism and communism are a more perfect form of socio-economic formation. Conclusion - the ideas of Lenin-Stalin are true. Something like this.

      And as always, these figures are to blame for Lenin and Putin.
      Outside the window, rain and hail. This is Lenin's fault!
      The cat left the kittens - Lenin is to blame,
      Mistress threw a hare - Guilty, guess!
      Here comes the board The unfortunate goby,
      Our Tanya cries loudly - Near Lenin, not otherwise!

      Healthy tooth removed Ile climbed into the apartment thief,
      I didn’t like the movie, you arrived in ... but
      Any incident has one explanation ...
      Every president knows - Lenin, the enemy agent!
      Who yesterday in my porch Lift to the ceiling?
      Believe me, comrades, this is Lenin’s hand!
      I caught drunk "squirrel" - This is Lenin's tricks!
      A pile under the table of Mr. Lenin’s fault!
      The toilet is clogged - This is Lenin’s order,
      He threw bull-calves there, poured water - and he was like that!
      At night, the clothes are stolen, the glass in our house is broken.
      Dancing drunk in the yard. This is Lenin - a revolt!
      There is no escape from the villain! Matom writes on the walls
      Broke the bushes in the alley. This is Lenin - oh and ah!
      Liberala is wetting the rain - Lenin laughs merrily.
      Flooded your cottage? - This is Lenin, not otherwise!
      Did you find a thunderstorm along the way? - That hand got the Kremlin.
      Cold, wind, snowfall - Again Lenin is to blame.
      Blowing the roof off a hurricane? - This is Lenin taking revenge on the "rams".
      Storm, tsunami, flood? - This is Lenin, no doubt!
      Rain, landslide, cyclone - Of course he is to blame.
      Sel, avalanche, rockfall? - Clear: Lenin is to blame!

        Thank you! One hundred percent agree with you that all the fictions of the crap about the corrupt Lenin, whom, according to Mr. Kerensky, was brought to St. Petersburg by the Germans in a Stolypin wagon with bags of money (of various states - German, English, French, American) for the coup d'etat are fiction for the illiterate ... At the same time, these so-called historians forget to take into account that there is not a single document testifying to Lenin's venality, and this despite the fact that the penditic Germans recorded all their actions. At the same time, neither the Germans, nor phrases, nor the British, nor the Americans left a single document about the venality of Ulyanov (Lenin). In addition, not a single document about the bloody gebne, which, according to the traitor to the Soviet people, citizen Sakharov, destroyed one hundred fifty million (one and a half billion) Soviet citizens, fifteen thousand Polish bandits (the elite of bzdeniks - traitors to the Slavs) did not exist. But Russian-American liberal-crap, who are trying to show modern youth the history of the USSR and today's Russia as an empire of "evil", are trying hard to prove to us the opposite. At the same time, these uncles and aunts, bought for US dollars, are in no hurry to show the empire of "good" in the person of the United States with all its "virtues" in the establishment of world chaos. Death to Bandera and their owners mattress mats. Something like this.
