"Forbidden" Victory Day. How 9 May is held in Ukraine and in the Baltic countries

60
May 9, 2016 Russia and many other countries celebrated Victory Day. In Moscow and a number of other large cities of the country, as well as at the military base of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Khmeimim in Syria, military parades were held dedicated to the 71st anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. In Russian cities, except for the military personnel of the Russian army and fleet, employees of other power structures, solemn, unfortunately, veterans of the Great Patriotic War, cadets and schoolchildren, representatives of public organizations, and simply patriotic citizens took part in the celebrations. This year's Immortal Regiment rally brought together many participants across the country. In Rostov-on-Don alone, about 50 thousand people took part in the procession of the "Immortal Regiment". In the capital of Russia Moscow, over 700 thousand people - citizens and visitors of the city - went to the Immortal Regiment action.




But, besides Russia, the Victory Day is rightly celebrated by many residents of those former Soviet republics, in which pro-Western governments were in power after the collapse of the USSR. In the Baltic countries, and more recently in Ukraine, the authorities are doing everything possible to rid the memory of the great victory of the Soviet people over the Nazi invaders. History Great Patriotic War brazenly twisted and defiled by modern "Goebbels". And, nevertheless, in Ukraine and in the Baltic states, a huge number of people, despite the anti-Soviet and anti-Russian policies of the authorities, recognize and honor Victory Day. Indeed, all the peoples of the Soviet Union contributed to the defeat of Hitler Germany. But today, those who are not afraid to openly celebrate Victory Day in Latvia, Estonia or Ukraine, you will not envy.

In Estonia, the police were summoned for questioning by Dmitry Linter, who was the organizer of the “Immortal Regiment” action in the country. It is known that 7 of May Dmitry Linter was detained on the Russian-Estonian border when he was returning to Estonia from Russia. Linter was forced to spend nine hours at the border checkpoint before he was allowed to enter Estonia. The secretary of the Estonian Security Police, Harris Puusepp, told reporters that Linter was called in for questioning as a witness, but refused to disclose details of what particular case a public figure is witnessing. Therefore, there is reason to believe that the reason for the increased attention of police officers to Dmitry Linter may be precisely his active social activities, including the holding of the action "Immortal Regiment". However, in Tallinn, the march "The Immortal Regiment" took place and gathered around 500 people who had left to honor the memory of soldiers and officers who died at the front and who had died from war veterans.

As you know, in Estonia, Victory Day has long been not an official holiday date. Instead, the country celebrates a certain "Europe Day" - the anniversary of the signing of the agreement between France and Germany on the industrial union, which marked the beginning of the process of European integration. Nevertheless, thousands of people in the country - the descendants of the participants of the Great Patriotic War - do not forget the date of May 9. Those who wish to honor the memory of the participants of the Great Patriotic War gather at the monument "Bronze Soldier" at the Military Cemetery in Tallinn. There are public organizations, representatives of the embassies of Russia and Belarus, clergymen of the Estonian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate. This year in Tallinn, the first march "Immortal Regiment - Tallinn" was held, the participants of which laid flowers at the monument "Bronze Soldier". In addition, the action "Immortal Regiment" was held in Sillamäe, Narva, Kohtla-Järve and Jõhvi. In Tartu, Pärnu and a number of other cities, caring citizens visited the mass graves of the Red Army soldiers who gave their lives for the liberation of Estonia from the Nazi invaders. In honor of the Victory Day in the Estonian cities and celebratory concerts are organized by public organizations.

In Latvia, instead of Victory Day, 8 is now celebrating May Victory Day over Nazism in World War II - on the model of Western Europe and the USA. It is on this day that official events are held, in which representatives of the country's leadership participate. However, since in Latvia a large part of the country's population is made up of Russians, and many Latvians are descendants of the participants of the Great Patriotic War as part of the Red Army, the celebrations take place on May 9. This year, May 9, the solemn ceremony began at the monument to the Liberators in Riga. The event was attended by the mayor of Riga, Nil Ushakov, the ambassadors of Russia and other states, activists of public organizations, veterans of the Great Patriotic War and their relatives. By the way, Nil Ushakov, about whom the Military Review has already written, is one of the active participants and organizers of the celebrations in honor of Victory Day for many years. It should be noted that this year in Latvia there will be no live broadcast of celebrations in Moscow. The fact is that on April 7, 2016 was banned from broadcasting on the Russian TV channel Russia-RTR for a period of six months. The Latvian authorities have accused the channel of "inciting hatred and calls for military action." Latvian nationalist parties are known for extremely negative attitudes towards the Soviet era in the country's history. They are the main supporters of the laws on the de-communization of Latvia, which criminalize any positive statements about the Soviet past.

In contrast to the Baltic republics, which began to demonstrate their negative attitude to any positive information about the Soviet past, including Victory Day, in Ukraine for a long time Victory Day was celebrated at the official level. The very possibility of banning the celebration of Victory Day in Ukraine several years ago seemed utterly absurd - millions of natives of the Ukrainian SSR died at the hands of the Nazis, millions participated in the Great Patriotic War in the ranks of the Red Army and partisan formations. However, the negative attitude to the celebration of Victory Day took place in the western regions of Ukraine. He was actively promoted by representatives of radical nationalist organizations, for which Russophobia and anti-Soviet sentiments are the “calling card”. Militants of right-wing extremist organizations committed provocations at celebrations, and sometimes openly attacked their members, without being ashamed to beat old veterans. In Western Ukraine, the local radicals indulged the right radicals. Back in 2010, the Lviv court banned any activities on Victory Day. 9 May 2011 in Lviv, there were massive clashes between representatives of the pro-Russian political party "Rodina" and Ukrainian nationalists. Stones, smoke bombs, “injuries” went into action, one person was injured, but the Motherland activists managed to break through to the Hill of Glory and raise the red banner of Victory there.

The first attempts to “revise” the history of Ukraine at the official level were made under President Viktor Yushchenko, who postponed the date of the traditional military parade on August 24 - Independence Day of Ukraine. The point of view that the real defenders of Ukraine were not residents of the Ukrainian SSR, who fought in the Red Army and partisan detachments, but members of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, began to be actively promoted. Recall that the UPA did conduct operations against Hitler’s troops in Ukraine, but the Soviet Union remained its main opponent. The UPA fought against the Red Army even after the victory over Germany until 1949, and the individual centers of resistance of the Bandera remained the entire first half of the 1950s. However, Viktor Yushchenko did not hesitate to openly demonstrate opposition to Victory Day - he attended the parade in honor of the Victory's 60 anniversary in Moscow 9 in May 2005, participated in laying wreaths on the grave of the Unknown Soldier in Kiev.

Viktor Yanukovych, who replaced Yushchenko as president of Ukraine, treated Victory Day much more respectfully. 9 May 2010 of the year in Kiev and other major cities of the country passed military parades in honor of the 65 anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. In Kiev, 142-meter St. George ribbons were carried in, military personnel from Belarusian and Russian units specially arrived in the country took part in the parade. Russia at the parade was represented by the 45-th separate guards special-purpose regiment of the Russian Airborne Forces. However, after the coup d'état that took place in 2014, the new Kiev authorities, targeting the United States and actively using anti-Russian rhetoric (if not to say more, turned Russophobia into the main ideology of the Ukrainian state), fundamentally revised the country's official position on Victory Day. In April 2015, the celebration of Victory Day in Ukraine was canceled. At the official level, there was a rejection of the terms "Victory Day" and "Great Patriotic War." Now Ukraine is celebrating Victory Day over Nazism in World War II, and all solemn events are postponed to May 8 - on this day victory over Germany is celebrated in the United States and Western Europe. The Day of Victory over Nazism in Ukraine is also called the Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation. I wonder who the Ukrainian authorities want to “reconcile” with whom? Executioners of concentration camps with their victims? Or a soldier who had fought against fascism for four years, with accomplices of the nazis — policemen who were creating lawlessness against the civilian population of the occupied territories?

"Forbidden" Victory Day. How 9 May is held in Ukraine and in the Baltic countries


In Ukraine, the main symbols of the Victory are now prohibited - the ribbon of St. George and the red banner. For understandable and well-known reasons, the St. George ribbon is especially hated by the Kiev authorities and Ukrainian nationalists. Now it is associated exclusively with popular resistance in the Donbas, which the Kiev authorities call "separatism." As for the red banner, its use is officially prohibited in Ukraine in accordance with the law on de-communization. For the Day of Victory over Nazism, the new authorities of the country found new symbols - poppies that are used in Europe and red and black ribbons - the color of the flags of Ukrainian nationalist organizations (which imitate UPA in symbolism).

The ban on the use of the symbols of the Great Victory is already in force, so repressions began in Ukraine against those who are not afraid of 9 in May to go out with the St. George ribbon or red banner. Literally 9 in May 2016, it became known that the National Police of Ukraine opened a criminal case in connection with the use of the Victory Banner in Cherkasy - at a festive event in honor of the 71 anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. The inquiry will be carried out in accordance with the criminal case initiated under Article 436 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - "Propaganda of war and encroachment on external security, peace-loving policy of the state." As it became known, veterans tried to raise the red banner, after which they were attacked by activists of the Ukrainian national radical party "Freedom" and militants from the volunteer battalion of the Ukrainian National Guard "Azov", famous for their participation in the war in the Donbas. Although we managed to stop the fight, now there is a risk that the Ukrainian authorities will arrest the veterans - very elderly people - just because they left 9 on May, on their holiday, with their banner.

9 May 2016 Conflict occurred in other cities of Ukraine. Thus, in the occupied Slavyansk, a group of radicals attacked the solemn march of the Victory and poured green paint on war veterans and MP Natalya Korolevskaya. During the attack, young people shouted slogans “Glory to Ukraine! Glory to heroes!". In order not to lose the “face” definitively, the Ukrainian authorities decided to imitate an angry reaction to the actions of the provocateurs. The National Police of Ukraine detained all participants in the attack on the festive procession, after which they were taken to the police station, and an inquiry was initiated in their respect.

The clash occurred in Kharkov. Here two groups of participants of the festive event at the Memorial of Glory fought. Some people came with Ukrainian flags, others - with Soviet flags. As it became known, government officials, veterans and members of Ukrainian nationalist organizations marched in the festive procession. They were followed by a column of pro-Russian activists with Victory banners, red flags and St. George ribbons. Ukrainian nationalists attacked the Kharkiv city council deputy Andrei Lesik, who is a member of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine (PSPU). The red flag, which Andrei Lesik carried in his hands, the attackers tore off the flagpole. A fight broke out in which two people were injured, including a person who rushed to separate the fighting officers of the National Police of Ukraine.

Victory Day continues to be celebrated, as we see, in those countries of the “near abroad” where the authorities are very negative towards Russia and the Soviet past. All adopted laws on “de-communization”, attacks by right-wing forces on demonstrations, measures of censorship in the mass media are nothing compared to the popular memory of the Great Victory. It is possible that, sooner or later, history will once again put everything in its place.

        That's right, it’s not for that that they destroyed Ukraine in order to re-educate themselves later. The whole top of Ukraine and the media judged as war criminals

        And most importantly, "enlightened" Europe is silent for all this, as it has taken water into its mouth. So free them all after that. Looking at all this, one involuntarily recalls one African proverb: "All good must be punished." Probably now it is no longer necessary to free anyone, probably they are still better in slavery.

          All wars in the world are generated by an imperfect competition system. This is capitalism.

          If there is a merger of large forms of capital, state and people under the idea of ​​national superiority - fascism. Competition is taking place at the interstate level in the form of a military clash - war.

          But the reason only in the economic system is capitalism.

          By the way. USSR, it was a super-corporation with all the means of production belonging to the state and people. Within the USSR there was a relatively good economic balance. But the foreign policy of the USSR depended not on the desire for personal gain, but on the political representation of the situation by members of the government.

          Was the USSR a terrible country? Could be. Because the country was ruled by politicians, people who could be wrong. Who knows the history of the USSR, he will turn to many periods that find a complex explanation.

          But we can definitely say the following. The USSR was a country of absolute and non-stop progress. With no probable development potential without internal conflicts.

          And who told you that Europe is "enlightened" ?! More than one generation has already been raised that knows very little and takes little interest in the events of the Second World War. And this was done on purpose in order to belittle the role of the USSR in the victory over fascism. Well, how can the same France or Holland and the same Poland, talk about their role in the war ?! How they surrendered almost without fighting and then safely fed, clothed, armed, sent their children to fight on the side of the invaders. And only one country, without reckoning with anything, not just resisted, but stood and won, and even freed all this rag-tag! You can understand them as it were, if you think like these weaklings. But forgive, never! In Russia, there was always a short conversation with traitors, the nearest fence or aspen. Do those authorities understand or do not understand the degree of responsibility that denigrate the feat of the peoples of the USSR? Maybe yes . But being under the control and roof of the United States, they think that everything will get away with it and, as always, are mistaken. After all, their ancestors thought the same in the thirty-ninth - the forty-first that the Germans are forever!

      While the fascist junta is driving the outskirts, nothing will change. I noticed one interesting pattern. As soon as our talk shows end on TV (our holidays are the longest), Ukraine is silent. It seems that there is no food for the brain and material for turning the facts. But what if we keep silent for at least a month about the events in the Independent Square. Yes, they’ll go crazy and start to eat each other in their spider bank.

    Germans to Russians
    1. We want to apologize on behalf of the German people for the 26 million dead. For this unhealed wound, which our country under the dictatorship of the Nazis during the Second World War, inflicted on the Russian people. Of the total death toll in all countries, due to unprecedented in the history of German aggression, half of the deaths were from Russia.


    2. We want to apologize on behalf of the German people for the partly vile lies of politicians and the media, which the Russian people and its official representatives of the public repeatedly, deliberately and treacherously exposed in a negative light to divide us.


    3. We want to apologize on behalf of the German people for the cowardly and senseless foreign policy of our government, which aims to exclude Russia from world politics and follows the aggressive policy of NATO eastward expansion - violating all the promises made during the political process that led to the reunification of Germany.


    4. We thank the people of Russia on behalf of the German people for the peaceful and practically without additional conditions the opportunity to reunite our country almost 25 years ago, after decades of painful separation.


    5. We thank the people of Russia and their representatives on behalf of the German people for the fact that, despite the unfair political and medial attitude, insults and provocations of recent years, they managed to maintain patience and prudence and did not allow the escalation of incited conflicts.


    6. We thank the Russian people and their representatives on behalf of the German people and all religious minorities who have been affected by this for their integral contribution to the solution of the Syrian conflict, which was provably provable to be escalated by the West and its allies, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. In our multi-polar world, we wish Russia to play an even more important role in the prevention and resolution of similar conflicts.


    7. For us, peace between Germany and Russia and friendship between peoples has no alternative.

      There, already the Crimean prosecutor went with the icon of Nicholas II to the Immortal Regiment. Here's what's in her head?

      Medal "For the Victory over Germany" on which ribbon is it worn? Probably, the ribbon is still a symbol. Another thing is that the Bolsheviks called the tape the Guards, and not St. George's, as under tsarism. There are two names, but one tape ... And initially it was called St. George's.

    It’s interesting if people say with Chinese flags in Ukraine or probat extinctions to a demonstration they will spread rot too?

        10 April 1944, units of the Red Army liberated Odessa from the Nazis. The NKVD troops appeared in the city only on April 11 and found that more than 200 people were hanged on poles, on the gates of a number of houses. So Odessans themselves dealt with the former policemen, who did not have time to escape with the German and Romanian troops. I have the honor.

    In Klaipeda (Lithuania), the queue stood at the memorial. All filled up with flowers. Parents say a real folk holiday was.

    What did you want? The war is not over, it goes for our memory, for the minds of young people, for our culture! And we, as always, are fighting against the entire "civilized world" and the main thing here is not to put our grandfathers to shame and break these "partners"!

    It is impossible to forbid that which is alive in hearts!

    I noticed that as soon as you start to fight back all this ... Then they may not immediately, but retreat and flee. What a pity that ordinary residents of these cities cannot muster their strength and repulse all these nationalists and "basics" once and for all. Simultaneously - in all cities at once!

    I don’t even fit in my head, how can I be like these ukronatsiks? How to sell and betray your ancestors who fought for you? After all, most of these geeks today would not exist in the world at all if it were not for Victory. They would have been expended as untimely.

    Oh, how great that there is an IMMORTAL Regiment !!! After all, this is not only our grandfathers, great-grandfathers, because it is also a slandered country, which we return from processions with processions.
