26 December 1991 was treacherously finished off the USSR. 25 December President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev announced the termination of his activities as the President of the USSR "for reasons of principle" and signed a decree on the resignation of the powers of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. He also gave the head of the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin the management of a strategic nuclear weapons. December 26 The 1991 session of the Upper Session of the Supreme Council of the Union, chaired by A. Alimzhanov (Kazakh writer and public figure), adopted Declaration No. 142-Н on the termination of the existence of the Soviet Union.
In connection with this date - 20 anniversary of the betrayal of global proportions - the new composition of the State Duma of the Russian Federation should make a proposal to start a large-scale investigation by the highest state authorities of Russia, together with the authorities of Belarus and Kazakhstan, the actions or inactions of Mr. Gorbachev, Yeltsin and a number of other people , who, while in senior government positions, led to the power entrusted to them to collapse. They must answer for this act of treachery, the dead must be deprived of state awards, betrayed to shame.
And the understanding that the USSR could have been saved is also at the highest political level. So, Vladimir Putin, answering the question of historian Natalia Narochnitskaya during a recent live broadcast, said that although история has no subjunctive mood ... “but, of course, it was necessary to start economic transformations and reforms in the USSR in time and fix them with democratic reforms in the country. It was necessary to consistently, persistently and fearlessly, not hiding my head in the sand and not leaving the ass outside, to fight for the territorial integrity of our state. ”
15 March 1990 Mikhail Gorbachev at the meeting of the Extraordinary III Congress of People's Deputies of the Soviet Union in the Kremlin Palace of Congresses took the oath as President of the USSR, becoming the first and only President of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. According to this oath, Gorbachev had to respect and protect the Constitution of the Union, protect the security and territorial integrity of his state, faithfully serve the Soviet people. And he betrayed the country and the people.
Gorbachev, the President of the USSR, was obliged, after 8 of December, the heads of the Russian Federation (RSFSR), the Republic of Belarus and Ukraine signed an agreement on the establishment of the Commonwealth of Independent States (the so-called Belovezhsk agreement), to remove from power the leaders of the RSFSR, the Ukrainian SSR and the BSSR. And then appoint re-election of the heads of these republics, which violated Soviet law. The activities of Yeltsin, Kravchuk, Shushkevich and their entourage should have been investigated and received legal assessment. Gorbachev as the head of the USSR and the Supreme Commander had to do everything that depended on him to save the country, up to the arrest of those who encroached on the territorial integrity and security of the USSR. If necessary, go to the introduction of an emergency, "cleansing" and repression. This struggle would be supported by the majority of the population, by the army. It was necessary only to show political will. Instead, Gorbachev resigned.
Those who believe that such actions led to the Civil War, millions of victims, are mistaken. First, the collapse of the Soviet Union and so led to millions of victims - huge direct and indirect demographic losses, the return of Central Asia to the past - in the Middle Ages, the loss of geopolitical, economic, military positions that were lined up for centuries, then with the blood of hundreds of thousands of our ancestors. Secondly, Russia was able to preserve integrity in the most difficult 1990s. Third, the validity of the unity of the territory of the former Soviet Union is confirmed by the current integration processes. This process is historically justified, lawful and simply necessary for the survival of our peoples in the storm of the world “storm”.
Association will solve a lot of problems, including migration. Stability will come to the republic, the standard of living will increase, people will not have to leave in search of a better life. It should be noted that in the Russian Empire and the USSR there was no problem of mass migration, the Russians brought stability, order and prosperity to the outskirts.
Russia will not save the creation of a so-called. "Russian Republic" ("Russland"). An example of the greatest leaders of Russia-Russia-USSR: Oleg Veshchy, Svyatoslav, Ivan III, Ivan the Terrible, Catherine II, Nicholas I, Stalin - says that they always moved towards the expansion of the territory of the state and never left those territories which were taken by good or sword, where the blood of Russian warriors was shed. Retreat, care speaks of degradation, the proximity of the death of the state, civilization. The leadership of the USSR betrayed the Soviet people, the Russian and Russian-speaking population, who lived in the “independence” republics. On the territory of the former USSR there is not a single republic that would live better after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Everyone has a whole bunch of problems that lead to complete death, dissolution in neighboring projects, the powers. Millions of Caucasians, Central Asians do not flee from a good life and go to Russia. Ukraine is dying out, the former "showcases" of the USSR are the republics of the Baltic states, Belarus has serious problems (there is no perspective without integration with the Russian Federation), Georgia is on the verge of a new collapse. Azerbaijan in the long run will be a province of Turkey, and now it is threatened with a war of extermination with Armenia. The republics of Central Asia are waiting for China's absorption or chaos of bloody ethnic slaughter, Islamization and a final return to feudal relations. We leave, others come - Anglo-Saxons, Saudis, Turks, Chinese.
It is unreasonable to assert that it is impossible to “feed” the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Baltic States and other suburbs again. Of course, the excesses that were in the USSR should not be allowed when the Russian regions were in desolation, and the outskirts received priority funding. On the other hand, Russia, the Russian people at one time took responsibility for all these small nations, became for them the “big white brother”. And it is not permissible to “throw” them; this is one of the reasons for the sharp fall in respect for Russians in the 1990s. Once rescued in time, subjugated, taken into its composition, it is necessary to bear responsibility. Punish for mistakes, following the example of Joseph Stalin, who “punished” Chechens, Ingush, Crimean Tatars. And for the "cause" and very gently, mercifully. And all this then knew. "Encourage" for success in the growth of culture, civilization.
20 years passed, and the republics of the former USSR, except for Russia (the core of Russian civilization), could not become independent states. In addition, in some of them decomposition processes have gone so far that they are facing the threat of crushing, death. This is confirmed by the unrest in a relatively prosperous Kazakhstan. Without Russia, none of them has a chance in this cruel world, where the law of force rules. A significant part of them cannot even feed themselves, let alone national security, or territorial integrity.
It is foolish to talk about the "inevitability of the collapse of the Union." There is always a choice, Gorbachev also had a choice. When the Poles and the French sat in Moscow, the Germans stormed the capital of the USSR and prepared for the parade on Red Square, many also thought that this was all, the end of Russia-Russia-USSR. But thanks to the will of the leaders, the heroism and courage of the people, the enemies miscalculated.
