Riot on the Polish ship? Residents and the city hall of Rzeszow refused to dismantle the monument to the soldiers of the Red Army

It so happened that lately on our informational and analytical portal the overwhelming number of articles about Poland were of a negative connotation. No, any of our authors, as a Soviet pioneer, is certainly always ready to share with readers a positive message related to the neighboring state, but there really was no reason. And after all, the number of such occasions was reduced to zero mainly by the forces of the Polish leadership, which in its Russophobia reached unattainable heights. Now they have claims to the Smolensk traffic controllers, now to the ban of apples by the phytosanitary services of Russia, or to the fact that the Katyn memorial is not as large and large-scale as official Warsaw would have liked, then to the presence of Soviet monuments on Polish territory, or even to existence on the world map of the Russian Federation and the Russian people ...

However, against the background of all these obscurantist statements by the Polish leadership towards Russia, one of the grains of positiveness connected with Poland appeared. The head of the administration of Polish Rzeszow (center of Subcarpathian Voivodeship) - a city with a population of 170-thousandth - decided to actually go in defiance of the generally accepted Polish practice of today. Tadeusz Ferenc (that is the name of the town governor), who received the CO from above regarding the need to dismantle monuments to Soviet soldiers-liberators, decided not to drive horses, but to take an interest in the opinion of not official Warsaw or bureaucrats in Brussels, but the opinion of ordinary citizens.

It would seem, well, that there is this - the mayor decided to ask the residents of the city about their attitude towards stories. But the thing is that for modern Poland it draws, if not on an administrative feat, then at least on a willful decision. And this is a fact. After all, in Poland, which is positioning itself as a democratic state, real democracy has long ago given up its ends in order to satisfy the demands of those who today declare their literal benefit to the Polish state.

So ... Tadeusz Ferenc, together with colleagues in the city hall, as reported by the Polish newspaper "Vedomosti", organized a citywide survey on the "recommendation" of the so-called European Center for the Prosecution of Communist and Fascist Criminals (ETSPFP - Polish NGOs). The recommendation of ETSPFPP was that the city must destroy all the monuments left over from the Soviet era. Allegedly, these monuments are reminders of the "crimes of the Soviet regime." First of all, it was about the demolition of the monument, erected in honor of the soldiers of the Red Army.

Riot on the Polish ship? Residents and the city hall of Rzeszow refused to dismantle the monument to the soldiers of the Red Army

But the aforementioned Center must have bitten all its fists and even elbows, having learned that about 90% of all citizens who took part in the voting spoke against dismantling the historic monument.

The Polish portal Vedomosti cites a fragment of a statement about this made by the spokesman for the Polish city hall of Rzeszow:
Why demolish monuments? If we demolish this monument, we will not change history. Who freed our city? Red Army! And this is a historical fact.

Head of Rzeszow Tadeusz Ferenc

As a result, the city authorities of Rzeszów, having demonstrated their character and desire to listen to the opinion of their own people, refused to comply with the instructions of the organization, which actively feeds on Western grants and is engaged in attempts at outright self-praise.

It should be noted here that the refusal of the authorities of Rzeszow to dismantle the monument to the soldiers of the Red Army is not an ordinary moment for Poland. If we consider that some time ago, representatives of the Institute of National Remembrance working in the Polish state declared “the need to dismantle at least 500 monuments to Soviet soldiers”, that decision could become a precedent.

By and large, the administration of the Polish city could quietly swim in a stream of Russophobic slop of the central authorities, earning for themselves tapping on the shoulder from the official Warsaw, but the women of Zshuvtsy demonstrated their dignity. And for this, each of those who voted against the wars with the “windmills” (against the demolition of the monument to the soldiers of the Red Army) and separately the representatives of the city mayor’s office want to shake hands. This suggests that there are people in Poland who have what remains to be called respect for historical memory, which means that not everything in our bilateral relations is lost.

A separate question: will official Warsaw and all sorts of dirty tricks from Russophob NPOs allow the people of Zheshuvtsy to take and smash their sacred vessel, the cup from which they draw all their inspiration? After all, there would be no Soviet monuments and a socialist period in the history of Poland - where would all these specialists from all sorts of funds, centers and committees be today? And now, presumably, the dirty workers from NGOs will begin to promote the idea that (according to the analogy known today), the results of the city poll (referendum) were "only advisory in nature" and that the mayor of Ferenc was "not right" ...

The only trouble for the foundations, centers and committees is that the mayor of Rzeszow is a person who enjoys the unwavering support of the citizens from 2002. He won first place in the election of the mayor of the city four times! - in 2002, in 2006, in 2010 and in 2014. In the 2014 election of the year, two thirds of the voters voted for Tadeusz Ferenc. Polish presidents were changing, and Ferenc remained in his place with the support of the inhabitants of his city. And today, Ferenc has such support, and therefore the mayor considered that the opinion of his supporters for him is much more important than the opinions of those who are willing to sacrifice historical memory and historical respect for their short-term selfish interests.

For your information: Until the XIV century, Rzeszów wore the name Ryashev (in fact, “Rzeszow” is the Polish transcription of this name - Rzeszów) and was an old Russian settlement, which first became part of the principality of Peremyshl, and then captured by Poland.

Today, Rzeszów is one of the few Polish cities whose department continues to operate the Russian language department.

        I agree with you, this:
        Mayor Rzeszów is a person who has been enjoying the same support from citizens since 2002. He took first place in the mayoral election four times! - in 2002, in 2006, in 2010 and in 2014. In the 2014 election, two-thirds of voters voted for Tadeusz Ferenc. Polish presidents changed, and Ferenc remained in his place with the support of the inhabitants of his city. And today, Ferenc has such support, and therefore the mayor considered that the opinion of his supporters is much more important for him than the opinions of those who are willing to sacrifice historical memory and historical respect for the sake of their immediate selfish interests.

        you definitely cannot change, even with the level of "democracy" that we see in Poland. It is pleasant to realize that even in a country where Russophobia is elevated to the rank of state foreign (and domestic) politics, there are PEOPLE who remember who freed them from the Nazis and are ready to go against the position of their own government (and a significant part of the Polish people too).

          ... and in Rzeszow they turned out to be the overwhelming majority ... The Polish cultural center in Kaliningrad yesterday about this event:
          The topic came back because of Vladimir Novak, an activist of the PiS party and director of the Subcarpathian branch of the European Center for the Prosecution of Communist and Fascist Criminals. The dog with a lame paw in Rzeszow had not heard of the organization that Novak represents, but when the idea of ​​demolishing a monument known throughout Poland appeared, Novak made headlines in local newspapers, Novak, in a letter to the head of the city council Andriy Deka, did not mention anything. that, in his opinion, it is also necessary to demolish the monument to the Revolutionary Action. But when asked about this case from a journalist, he said that this monument should be razed to the ground, and in its place a monument should be erected ... to the Most Holy Theotokos. Novak has become the target of ridicule by Internet users of Rzeszow, who accuse him of interpreting history in the way that suits him. However, in the city hall, Novak's idea is also considered in the category of science fiction. A source:

              Most interesting, when there was a debate about adequate measures to Polish arbitrariness regarding Soviet monuments, I tried to urge not to denigrate the whole nation, focusing on the fact that sober and adequate heads are present in any ethnic group.
              And this proves that not all is lost. I would like to remind you that the "Ukrainians" are not all completely frostbitten either.

Over there, in Zaporozhye, a monument to Lenin was demolished, although the overwhelming majority of residents were against it. But no one asked anyone. democracy is her mother.

              As for the people and democracy, alas, do not flatter yourself. On TV today there was an interview with one Pole, from some structures there. In general, something like this - the administration of the settlement understands well that the demolition of the monument is fraught with numerous courts, for which there is neither money nor desire. Sorry, but the author applies a deep philosophy in a shallow, very shallow place.

        Pay attention to 90% of those who voted. This suggests that Russophobia comes "from above" and not from ordinary people. This suggests that all Russophobia is imposed from abroad. As the West is doing it, creating the fifth column in Russia. The Browder-Navalny story is an example of this. The same is with Poland. Remember this movement of trade unions "Solidarity". They planted money, organized an "opposition", gave the idea that the communists and the USSR (RF) were to blame for everything, brainwashed the youth and go ahead. But sooner or later the pendulum will swing back. I think no more than 3-5 years; since the economy began to shrink and the West will no longer help - the Poles will understand all this when their pockets are empty. And the help of the West in over 100 billion. dollars must be given, at least the EU is no longer going to pour "cabbage" there. Wait and see. hi

      This, though small, is a confirmation of how little the opinion of the people in the EU is taken into account. Conduct such polls in all cities where there are monuments and state diapers would be put to shame. The same thing happened in Riga with regard to the demolition of the monument to the Liberators of Riga, where tens of thousands of those who remember and honor the feat of the Soviet people gather annually on May 9th. We held a referendum did not give a ride did not allow people to destroy memory!

    But the name Tadeusz Ferenc is by no means Polish, and the main population of the Carpathian city is most likely ethnic Rusyns.
    So it’s not worth it to be seduced, although not all Poles are Russophobes, but the trend, as they say, has a place to be.

Or were there no (victims)? Everyone was pleased with fascism, he was happy with everyone, but here bam! Damned Tips came and ruined everything! That’s what the chip is in! In Syria, we also committed the crime of bombing ISIS. Here it is a world outlook. In this regard, the question arises. And why should we join this world community? In the case of Ferenc, there is of course a pattern break. Not everything is against Russia. I think if Russia starts to rise economically, then many former members of the social camp will run to us. Although in the 90s we acted meanly with them. All were betrayed and sent. But in our country this did not get better. We also betrayed our story, symbols. We close the mausoleum and draw a white star-cursor, carry out a cannibalistic policy and blame the past for cannibalism. We call the person who raised the country twice the enemy of the people. The country has risen twice after the war, curbed the atom and sent a man into space, underdeveloped. In our country there are few of our Ferentsians who are able to defend their past (unfortunately). Yes, and the present is not particularly upheld, more and more think about the personal (offensive). hi

    I myself served in Poland urgent shortly before the collapse of the USSR. From my own experience I can say that ordinary Poles treated Russians well. And those who remembered how we freed them, and there is nothing to say. But the Western Ukrainians, who tried to tear their claws from the advancing Soviet army and did not have time to escape further than Lower Silesia - yes, they certainly did not feel love for us.

    Europe is slithering toward fascization and to all those who resist inhumanization, so far they are not very harsh, but there is already experience with bringing politicians and journalists to a * consensus *, and experience with secret prisons. It seems to me that as soon as the * general people * are finally emboldened, they are assured of impunity, so all the attributes of Nazism will appear without any disguises. All those who have the courage to remember * the lessons of history *, and those who are grateful to the RED Army for the opportunity to live, will be destroyed.

    As it doesn’t reach Warsaw that the monuments have the property of taking revenge. One does not have to go far for an example. They demolished the monuments to the kings, the result of the Second World War.

    In the Subcarpathian voivodship, many still remember who liberated Poland from the fascist invaders, it’s a pity that these people soon die because of their age, and the younger generation is only concerned about consumption, and after 20-30 years even few people remember who fought with whom in the Second World War. Next to Rzeszow, there is the city of Shinzishov-Malopolska, where the Russian language is taught in school and quite successfully, Russian is very popular.

    The photo in the article is a monument to the Revolution. A photo of the monument to the soldiers of the Red Army was presented by a visitor of Inok 10. The monument, in general, judging by the picture, is in disrepair. but thanks for that.

    I travel through Poland often - a year ago I saw the following: Poles played a wedding 'everything is as it should be church' service ', but what surprised me was that young flowers were laid at the monument to the Liberators! Maybe not all is lost?

    The good news against the background of the negative from this country, of course, cannot but please any of us. Regarding the mayor, among other things, I want to say that judging by the photo, he is a man who, by virtue of his age, remembers well what Poland owes to the Russians and was not afraid to ask his people about this.

    I didn’t read the comments, my friends, but I’m more than sure, in all other towns (or in most) it would be the same. Just the mayor, excuse me, oh "left, having seen the costs of demolition. And here he asked the people himself, as it were "in the mainstream of democracy", as "in the hole." All this is sad. There are many more normal Poles than "".

    Unfortunately, this precedent does not affect Poland’s general policy!

    This precedent shows that in Russophobic Poland, not everything is as Russophobic and anti-Soviet as they want to show. This precedent shows that there is not only an anti-Soviet movement in Polish society, but also the opposite, coming from below, from ordinary citizens, workers who do not shout out theses of support from the stands, since workers are not allowed to the stands in bourgeois democracy. Workers silently indicate their position if asked. And the result of this survey, for example, is to my liking. Like the results of surveys in Russia, where, despite the quarter-century intensive brainwashing from all television screens and irons of our immense, hard workers still support the communist development path of past Bolshevik leaders such as Lenin and Stalin. From this position, Russia and Poland have much in common.

    Most of the modern Poles simply would not have been born if there had not been the Red Army, Russian soldiers and their victory over German fascism on Polish soil.
    On the other hand, had it not been for the Poles, we would not have learned about the abominations and abominations that they are doing today with the memory of the soldiers from Russia who have fallen for their lives - fighters against fascism. And it is quite clear that the events in Rzeszow are an exception to the rule, emphasizing the rule. And this rule sounds like this: "Destroy everything that reminds you of your birth!"
    They say that Poles have another "rule" today. They massively rent their elderly parents in the poorhouse. Well, woe to those people who betray and kill their old people, strive to forget their history, their friends and relatives. After all, the Germans, 70 years after the defeat of fascism in the war, are getting their way in other ways!
    And we still pay an exorbitant price for a rash withdrawal of the Group of Russian troops from Germany!

      Judging by the name and surname, the mayor is an ethnic Hungarian, which, given the death of the entire Hungarian army near Voronezh, is very significant. Although I can say that the Hungarians from Subcarpathia are different from the Magyars from Buda and Pest. For centuries they lived side by side with the Rusyns, who are the descendants of the Russians from Kievan Rus.

    Perhaps, over time, the deep layers of genetic memory will help Poles realize that it is stupid to spit in the direction of a Russian cousin, amusing customers from the liquidocracy. And their spits fly back, and in difficult times no one needs. Gone are the days of the dominance of churches and the confrontation between the schism and the Catholics no longer influences the behavior of both peoples. Neither the actual German Romanov dynasty nor their Russified descendants such as Alexander II and Alexander III are on the throne. Even the communist ideology is no longer in power in Russia. It's time to remember that genetically from Krakow to Kazan one hyper-ethnic community. First of all, the Poles should remember. We haven’t written them off "from their relatives." It just so happened that the Russians and the Poles in different periods chose different paths - Greek Orthodoxy against Catholicism, a single royal power against a weak royal power with a loud Diet, communist ideology against an ardent private -proprietary structure. But until now, more than a thousand years later, we understand each other without an interpreter! Now, what are the gentlemen unhappy with? - There are no ideological obstacles that hinder closer cooperation. But no, they still drag "bones from the past" to the table. And therefore, I think the truth is ours. For one simple reason: Russia has never worked for any owner. Poland has been torn between curators for centuries. As soon as the Poles begin to REALLY work for their own REALLY independent state, we will get along.
