"I have long been a Russian spirit ..." - the story of the Orthodox German Margaret Seidler
A lot of controversy has long been and is being conducted with us about who the Russian is. Different answers were given to this question. And F.M. Dostoevsky, even in the nineteenth century, defined: “Russian means Orthodox”. And really: not by blood and place of birth are people selected for the people, but by the soul. And the soul of the Russian people (even those people who do not yet know the Gospel and are not churchly, but sometimes for themselves unconsciously carry Christ in their hearts) is Orthodox.
Let us recall our Empresses, Germans by birth, but truly Russians, Orthodox to their liking. Recall the Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna. How many Russians could compare in Russianness with her, born by Germans and on Russian Land, who embodied the image of the noble Russian princesses who had long since sunk into oblivion?
Over the past century, the hard times, nothing has changed. And today an example of true Russianness and faith is given by an amazing woman - Margarita Seidler.
She was born 15 August 1971, in East Germany, in the city of Wittenberg-Lutherstadt. She graduated with honors from the gymnasium, studied English, French, Latin, slightly worse, and Spanish and Italian, and later Russian. She worked as a nurse in the field of traumatology, ambulance driver, lifeguard ... Both of her grandfathers fought in the Wehrmacht. Her parents, although they themselves were baptized in Protestantism, did not baptize their daughter. “My dad was baptized in Protestantism, although he had been saying all his life that he did not believe in God,” Margarita told in an interview with . - He had seen enough of what was going on in the Protestant church, where, among other things, one must regularly pay something like a tax in order to be a member of it. And he refused this church. Mom, on the contrary, always said that she believed in God, but she never went to church, she did not tell me anything about God.
When I was 17-18 for years, I survived the fall of the Berlin Wall and the iron curtain in general. Then the essence of this event is not understood. I was young, I had seen enough of the western TV channels and thought that it was almost a paradise on earth: you can go on vacation wherever you want, to foreign countries, to explore them. I thought that there in the West it is very beautiful and, probably, they eat very tasty and there are good things there. I treated this event as a material person. But soon I learned that everything is not as good as it was thought. It turned out that under the beautiful packaging of the Western world everything rotted. I was faced with unemployment, with a sharp increase in drug addiction and, of course, everything that we did not know rushed in a dirty wave to us. Where I grew up, there was a huge chemical plant that gave work to thousands of people, it closed, everyone lost their job, including my brother.
She decided to move to West Germany, got a job as a nurse, but even the medical staff were drastically reduced. She moved to a small picturesque town in the Alps, where she worked for eight years as a nurse, as an ambulance driver, was fascinated by extreme sports, was looking for the meaning of life. For several years I did this, but after these lessons I always felt empty. The soul was craving for something, but did not know anything else ... And although I had a huge number of friends, at some point I realized that I was standing in a spiritual sense before the abyss and did not know what to do. I felt that God exists, but did not know how to come to Him. I decided to go to Easter in a Catholic temple. I must say, I left it without consolation, something depressed my soul, I decided not to go there anymore. Thought what to do. I found a Protestant church, I went there, but it got worse for me, it was felt that these people were even more distant from the true God, and decided to go there, too, no longer. In sects or eastern religions, as it has now become very fashionable in the West, thank God, I was never drawn, the Lord kept me. Then she knew nothing about Orthodoxy at all and began to pray at home in her own words: “Lord, help me find the right path, the true Church. How to go to you, I do not know. "
I remember in 1998 I went to Turkey and met with Orthodox Ukrainians, who had lived in Munich for 20 for years. We became friends, and I complained: “I can’t find a way to God, I don’t know what to do.” They started telling me about stories Church, Orthodoxy, where Catholicism came from, Protestantism, and it became very interesting to me. Upon returning to Germany, I begged them to take me with them to their church, but they discouraged me, saying that it would be hard for me, that I don’t know the language: “The service is in Church Slavonic, we must stand in the service, fast".
It so happened that on the eve of the Holy Week of Great Lent I went to the Orthodox service for the first time. It was by no means a colorful Orthodox church, there were no golden domes, beautiful icons, singing also did not attract anything special, there was not even an iconostasis. The fact is that in the city of Munich, the Orthodox community of the Resurrection of Christ, because of its absence, rented a deserted church from Catholics, because they massively left their church. When the father came out with the Holy Life-Creating Cross, everyone knelt down. I felt embarrassed and I thought that, probably, I also need to kneel, which I did. In that instant something happened to me. I can only say that at this very moment the Lord showed me that He is, that He is here, in this Church. I felt after the great grace, I felt that the Lord loves me, waits and that I need to radically change my lifestyle, I felt how dirty I am, how sinful I am, that I live completely differently. I realized that I finally found what I had been looking for. Since then, she began to regularly go to this church, begged the priest to baptize me. He said: "Wait, first make sure that this is really what you want." So passed a whole year of testing.
When the priest baptized me at last in 1999, I began to pilgrimage to Holy Russia, I wanted to know the will of God. I saw that morally and morally Europe falls lower and lower. I really didn’t like the regular gay parades that are held in major cities of Germany, including Munich. There is a crowd of thousands of people who greet them, sing and dance with them. It scared me, I did not understand many things, but I understood it. I was not satisfied with euthanasia, which in fact is murder and suicide at the same time. Not satisfied and juvenile justice propaganda perverts, and many similar things. This is the way further and further into the underworld. We got to same-sex marriages, adoptions of children in such "marriages". In Norway, we are talking about the legalization of pedophilia. Recently, Germany submitted for consideration a bill on the legalization of incest. I think they will gradually reach even cannibalism.
These are all very scary things, so I could not find a place for myself, especially after pilgrimages to Holy Russia. I had the good fortune to meet the great elders, Archpriest Nikolai Guryanov, whom I love and honor. We were with him on the island of Talabsk. I asked: “What is the will of God? How can I escape, stay in Germany or move to Holy Russia? ”He clearly said:“ Yes, move ”. Blessed even in the monastery. Then there was the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, and Archimandrite Naum told me the same thing. A year later, I had the good fortune to get to the Holy Dormition of Pochaev Lavra, met the old man, Schemaarchimandrite Dimitry, he also blessed to move.
Of course, it was difficult to escape from there, because in the Western world a person is very attached, as if in claws. He pledges there with various insurances: for the car, for the medicine, for everything absolutely. And I, unfortunately, also tied in one insurance. This is a type of pension fund, a contract for 30 years. They did not want to let me out of this contract, I told them: “Sorry, I can’t wait for 30 for years to go to the monastery. I do not know, live or not. " They answer: "This is your problem, you have signed up, which means you are obliged, the only way out is death." So they detain and confuse a person, especially through loans. ”
A converted Christian woman went on pilgrimage to Holy Russia, seeking an answer to the question of how to please God, how to live: to establish an Orthodox family or to live a monastic way of life, to repent. By that time, she had already learned the Church Slavonic language, which had become her favorite. Spiritual Homeland called her new-found daughter to herself. During the pilgrimage, Margarita discovered for herself authentic sources of spirituality, true devotees of piety, holiness, which has not been left in Europe for a long time. This was a revelation for her and great happiness. After everything she had seen and learned, it was boring and difficult for her to remain in her native Germany, where there was no one to even talk about spiritual topics, and all the conversations were reduced to material things - career, money, cars, clothes ...
Nevertheless, after returning from the pilgrimage, Margarita lived there for another three years, she wanted to study as a surgeon, but Pochayev’s schiarchimandrite Dimitri warned that if she went to college, she would never come to Russia again. Zaydler listened to the advice of the elder. In 2002, she left Germany and moved to Ukraine, where she lived for six years in a monastery. She did not receive the blessings to take the veil. Her confessor explained to her that one can live in the world as a nun, and in the Kingdom of Heaven, to be honored with a tonsure. Thanks to him, Margarita realized that “she was not tonsured the most important thing in life, and the most important thing is to live a decent Christian life, which I try to do” .
After leaving the monastery, Zaydler settled in Kiev, where she was invited to work by the head of the “National Council of Ukraine” Igor Druz, whom they met during the All-Ukrainian religious procession that began in Pochayev. Igor Mikhailovich saw a talent of a journalist in Margarita. Despite the fact that she loved to write at school and constantly won literary contests, after so many years the advice to engage in journalism was unexpected for her. However, the confessor blessed Zaydler on this path, which opened a new page in her fate.
As an assistant I.M. Druzya, Margarita participated in organizing religious processions, worked in the office of the “People’s Council”, wrote articles. This continued until February 2014 ...
"In my eyes, all the events of Maidan took place," Zaydler told in an interview with RIA Ivan-Chai. - It was very scary, sad. Our organization then actively supported berkutovtsy. We collected donations, humanitarian aid, fire extinguishers, because they were attacked, they were thrown at Molotov cocktails. People died en masse, but, thank God, we still managed to call a respected father, who communed them just before the bloodiest event. About 150 berkutovtsy took communion then. Of course, the father also supported them morally, saying that "you are standing here for the people, not for some president, you are protecting the people from the raging crowd."
Unfortunately, then we were forced to leave Kiev, when already Bandera violently, in a bloody way, seized power. By the way, the office of our organization was located in the center of the city, not far from the government quarter. And Bandera violently seized our office. Great happiness that I was not there that day. I can say several times there were such cases that this raging crowd - about a thousand people, the so-called protesters - went right under the windows of the office, shouted (I was so embarrassed, of course, scared, looked at them): in helmets, with sticks and shields in their hands, with terrible black and red flags, with fascist symbolism. They shouted their famous slogans “death to Muscovites!”, “Commies to the Gilyaks!”, Etc. I thought, "Lord, have mercy," if they now storm the building, what will happen. I relied on the will of God, and, thank God, they passed by. But still, we had to leave from there. ”
According to Margarita, the spectacle of Maidan reminded her of “a horror film - burnt facades of houses, rubbish, a terrible atmosphere. The holy city of Kiev, the mother of the cities of Russians and Orthodoxy, was turned into a garbage can and a hotbed of fascism ... ” In the captured office of the "People's Council" was placed women's hundreds of Maidan. Employees of the organization, who spoke with harsh criticism of the frenzied inspiration, faced a real threat of arrest, and, perhaps, of physical violence. With the “enemies of the revolution”, the Maydanovites, like their spiritual predecessors in 17, did not stand on ceremony. Suffice it to recall how the crowd with bats, who came to the office of the Party of Regions, lynched an ordinary clerk who had come to the negotiations on his steps, and then burned the building itself.
Together with colleagues in the “People’s Council” Margarita Zaydler went to Sevastopol, which they all considered the last limit protecting against fascism, and joined the ranks of the self-defense of the Crimea under the direction of Igor Strelkov. “In Sevastopol, I saw believers and militant people who would never surrender,” she recalled in an interview with Elena Tyulkina. - In the Crimea, the people's militia, the national detachments, which protected the Russian people from the attack of the Banderevts, were formed very quickly. Under the leadership of a public figure and editor-in-chief of the Orthodox newspaper Rusichi, Pavel Butsay, with the miraculous icon of the Mother of God “Derzhavnaya”, we have traveled all over the Crimea and all roadblocks ”.
Since I.M. Druz ahead of time foresaw the coming civil war, then both he and his colleagues had time to undergo training with a gunshot weapons. Margarita is no exception. She was ready to defend her new homeland with weapons in her hands. “When the Orthodox faith and the Fatherland are in danger. Then I even consider it a sin to just fold my arms and say: “Well, I’m a believer, a pacifist, I can’t take a weapon in my hands,” said yesterday’s German woman in an interview with RIA-News. “And history teaches us that our Orthodox ancestors have always defended their families, the Russian people from enemies - from external and internal.
We see that there are such saints as the Grand Duke Alexander Nevsky, who won by faith, prayer and arms. If he hadn’t taken up arms, I don’t know if Russia would exist at all now. Or Saint Reverend Sergius of Radonezh, before the battle on Kulikovo Field, blessed even two of her schemata to battle. According to the regulations, of course, the monk - what kind of a weapon does he have the right to take in his hands? But Russia, the Orthodox faith could die once and for all at the hands of Mamai and his horde. And we see the feat that Schemamonk Peresvet made then with the blessing of Sergius of Radonezh: he knew that he would die in this battle, but he sacrificed himself to save the Fatherland .
It was this understanding of the duty of the Orthodox person and the love for the Russian land and its people that did not allow Margarita to stay in a comfortable and already Russian Sevastopol at the moment when blood flowed in the Donbass and rushed to Slavyansk.
“I am not tied, and, probably, therefore I decided to take this step,” she explained in an interview with RIA Ivan-Chai. - If I had children, I would not take it, because the first duty of a woman is, of course, to raise and raise her children. And I am free, I don’t have a family, I’m only responsible for myself, if I die, for example, in a fight or if a shell falls on my head and I’ll no longer be in this world ... It's not so scary. I always think that my feat is much less than the feat of those men who left their families with several children and went to defend their homeland. Much higher than their feat, because they have something to lose, and I do not.
Well, of course, it would be a great pity for my mother, she remained in Germany. She never wanted to move here. Although in peacetime I invited her many times. But, of course, according to Western media it is clear that they tried to present Russia and Ukraine in a terrible way, that people do not live there, that it is impossible to live there. She had seen enough of it all, believed it, and therefore did not want to come here. And it would be hard for her to know that I died. All the will of God. And I think the most important thing is to do your duty and get into the kingdom of heaven ”.
Zaydler said nothing to her mother about her decision, not wanting to worry her. In Slavyansk she went together with a girl from Kiev. Upon arrival in the city, she was most struck by the attitude of the civilian population towards the militia. People treated their advocates with sincere love and respect. Some woman came up to Margarita on the street, thanked her with tears in her eyes, hugging and kissing. “Win, win!” She said. Encouraged and others. By the time Zaydler arrived, there was no water in Slavyansk, and two days later the electricity was gone, some residential areas were already partially destroyed by incessant shelling, the victims multiplied every day. We had to sleep on the floor, on mattresses, and spend the night in bomb shelters.
“There were cases,” she recalled, “when shells exploded next to me, glass was vibrating in the windows,” and I just prayed: Lord, may it be your will and everything is in your hands. I thought maybe the next shell would fall into the building where I am. But I had confidence that without the will of God and the hair from my head would not fall. Well, if it is already time - God knows better than I ... I always tried to pray in my own words. The situation was such that I pray for a long time, of course, there was no time to read akathists. In Slavyansk, where we often spent the night in an air-raid shelter, we could not sleep at all. But it was there that I felt that we became like one big family. It was very comforting. We helped each other, there was no suspicion or alienation between us ”.
Upon arrival in the city, Margarita wrote a brief note about her impressions:
“I am in Slavyansk, in the headquarters of Igor Strelkov, the Minister of Defense of the DPR. Glory to God, took me to the number of militias. She thought about her deed well, and simply could not sit more calmly and watch how the Ukrainian fascists would destroy the civilian population of Donbass only because people do not want to live under the fascist yoke! My friends tried to dissuade, but the soul felt - no, do not give in, you have to go and help, not sparing yourself. Moreover, the respected Orthodox elder blessed me.
I come from Germany - from a country that itself was under the fascist yoke and suffered from it itself, and caused other peoples such great grief! We must clearly understand that the current outbreak of fascism has its roots not in Ukraine, but again in Germany, in Western Europe, in the USA. Ukrfashizm artificially, deliberately and diligently grown! And financed. It is enough to recall the policies of the German Bundeskanzler, Angela Merkel, and her support for the fascist coup in Kiev.
Nearly 150 years ago, Prince Otto von Bismarck argued that Russia is virtually invincible, but he developed a way to defeat Russia: it is necessary to divide the united great Russian people, separate the Little Russians from the Great Russians, create the myth of "Ukrainians", tear these people from their roots , from its history, and sow hatred between them. Over the past hundred years, the governments of Western countries very diligently carried out this special task, and, unfortunately, very successfully. Now we are witnessing the sad fruits of these efforts ...
Back in Germany, I was categorically against fascism, I mourned that some of my ancestors fought against the Russians. After my baptism into Orthodoxy, I often went to an Orthodox church in honor of the Resurrection of Christ, which is located on the territory of the former Munich concentration camp - Dachau. One of the greatest saints of our time languished in prison there: St. Nicholas the Serbian. He wrote precisely there his great work against fascism: "Through the window of a dungeon." I couldn’t have thought then that the story would repeat, that again the serpent of fascism would lift its nasty head! But, I am sure, with God's help, we step on this head and crush it!
It is also necessary to understand that here the struggle is against Orthodoxy, and not just against its own people. Therefore, the head of the SBU Nalyvaichenko said that there are fighting Orthodox fanatics and extremists, which must be destroyed. Approximately the same statement was made by the sworn “friend” of Russia Brzezinski. And now they are purposefully bombarding our Orthodox churches. In Slavyansk you can see the destroyed chapel near the church of St.. prp. Seraphim Sarovsky ... Soul bleeds!
It never ceases to amaze me that, despite the daily shelling of the city, life goes on as usual, shops, the market are working, people walk quietly through the streets. Of course, the population has become smaller than it was, but still there are very many. The banner with the image of the Savior the Arms of Man on the roof of the city administration building particularly pleased the eye. As Schiaarchimandrite Raphael (Berestov) said: The DPR militia is fighting for Christ and with Christ, and who gives his life in this fight, will reach the Kingdom of Heaven even without an ordeal!
There are certain problems with water supply. Water is brought from wells, water pipes are cut off. Periodically cut down electricity. But, all this is tolerable. And the Slavic people generously endure, many do not want to leave here, they are already accustomed to the military situation.
The militiamen told me that despite the so-called. truce by the Ukrainian authorities daily, especially at night, shelled the city. I was personally convinced of this: I spent my first night in Slavyansk in an air-raid shelter, most of the night the dill fired the city with heavy artillery. And today, in broad daylight, the explosions seemed to sound very close. But, I am not afraid of anything, for God is with us!
Today, important information has been received that a large-scale assault on the city is planned with heavy artillery, and in the area of Krasny Liman the punishers will unload a large number of chemical munitions. It is necessary to prepare, gas masks are distributed to all. T.N. “Truce” by the dill is constantly violated, and now they do not intend to abide by it.
The forces of the militias are limited, and urgent assistance is needed from the Russian Federation, help by armored vehicles, weapons, and best of all, an urgent need to introduce an armed peacekeeping contingent. We hope for the help of God and for the wisdom of Vladimir Putin! ”
The German volunteer in the besieged Slavyansk immediately became a kind of sensation for the media. Many newspapers and Internet portals wrote about it, and stories on television were also published. Zaydler, who was going to devote herself to helping the wounded in accordance with her first profession, was left at the headquarters, by decision of the authorities, to be engaged in information work.
The militia accepted the volunteer as a sister, and treated her with great respect. Talking about them in an interview with the Internet portal “Free Press”, Margarita testified: “The backbone of the militia is still Orthodox, with clear, solid moral and ethical foundations, like the Minister of Defense Igor Strelkov himself. There are atheists, there are people who belong to different faiths. We all fought together for one thing: against fascism. There were not just disputes or quarrels against the backdrop of religions or anything else. Basically, the militia, the composition of the militia consists of local residents, not only from the Donetsk region, no, but from all over Ukraine: from Western Ukraine, from Kiev, from the Zhytomyr and Mariupol regions, from Odessa, from all sides. There are Russians who come. There are a lot of people from the Crimea. And very little, somehow I just do not know where this information comes from, they say that there are many Chechens there. Well, there are very few of them. In Slavyansk, to be honest, I did not even see one. And there is still such a myth, unfortunately, that mainly Russian mercenaries are fighting there. I have not seen a single mercenary. I want to say, all the militias, what they have, they themselves provide everything: uniform and shoes, and so on. I saw the militiamen, who are wearing shoes in the trenches, because they do not even have berets. Salaries still do not receive a penny, they stand there all day for their homeland, in defense of their homeland, their family and the Orthodox faith, by the way, too. Because here is the head of Nalyvaychenko, he clearly stated that there are Orthodox fanatics in the trenches, and therefore it is necessary to fight the Orthodox Church, and to destroy the temples, which they are eagerly doing, unfortunately. In Slavyansk itself I had to see a ruined church, a chapel in honor of St. Seraphim of Sarov. This is of course very scary.
Among the militias, I want to say, there are real heroes who stand high in terms of human and spiritual measures, of course. I have a familiar commander, I know him from the time of Kiev, we worked together in a public organization, he asserted himself, he became wonderful, more remarkable just a man and became a very good commander. He told me some cases. From the very beginning, he himself fought in Semenovka, on the front lines. It is the case that the militia, mostly Orthodox militias, with great dedication, cover their brethren under pain of their own death and prefer to die themselves rather than substitute their own fighter. I talked with one militia, too, from Semenovka, who told me that he used to be a sectarian, even a pastor called the sect "Seventh Day Adventists." And he says: “I decided to accept Orthodoxy. Nobody preached me, but I looked at the feats of the Orthodox fighters. They are always in the forefront, fearless, they do not pity themselves. Cover others. ” And he looked at it for a long time and decided to accept Orthodoxy, and even proudly showed me his Orthodox cross and said that he would no longer be any Adventist pastor ”.
As for the other militias, the decision to leave Slavyansk to Margarita Seidler was absolutely unexpected. Already from Donetsk she wrote: “Before our departure, the“ dill ”purposefully and systematically destroyed the civilian population, they compared the street behind the streets with earth, there were a lot of dead and wounded. The exact number is unknown, but they talked about more 60 injured, the death toll is unclear. The photos we shot that day speak for themselves ...
In addition, it makes no sense to sacrifice the most combat-ready part of the militia, to fight against the fascists otherwise there would be no one else. There are some angry and unreasonable people, like Sergey Kurginyan, for example, who claim that we were supposed to die there. Well, I'm sorry, Mr. Kurginyan, that we are still alive and will continue to fight fascism !!!
Unfortunately, there is another reason why we were forced to leave Slavyansk. Unworthy people, some militia commanders betrayed. And now it is necessary to restore order in Donetsk itself, in order to stop betrayal and self-defense, in order to rally the entire militia into a single force, under a single command. Only in this way can we successfully resist the fascists and defeat them. I talked to many residents of Donetsk, who thanked us for coming, for the fact that I. Strelkov would put things in order here in Donetsk and strengthen the defense of the city.
Quickly we collected the necessary things, placed ourselves in the cars, a long column was formed. At night, the headlights are a convenient target for enemy artillery, so we tried to drive on bad roads without light, although this is quite dangerous. Several cars were stuck in the field.
Suddenly I see lighting flares. One, another ... And we drove through an open field! We were at the head of the column, and further behind the "dill" fired at us. There are dead and wounded. There was no “corridor”, no “contract” with P. Poroshenko, as the deceptive “patriots” of Russia claim, could not be!
The fact that we got to Donetsk with minor losses is a real miracle of God! God bless all the fighters who distracted the “dill” from our column with the small forces that existed. They heroically covered us with fire, several tankers died. Kingdom of heaven to them!
Other heroic feats performed Semenov fighters. Many had to get on foot and under the shelling to Donetsk, they were forced to leave the broken cars ... ".
In Donetsk, a picture appeared to Margarita's eyes, quite different about the one she was used to during the defense of Slavyansk. A completely peaceful city, peaceful people involved in their own affairs, water, electricity ... At first, the attitude towards the militiamen was wary. The reason for this was that in Donetsk there was no strict discipline established by Strelkov in Slavyansk. And if in Slavyansk there were practically no cases of looting, apart from a few, the perpetrators of which were punished according to the laws of wartime, the dry law was observed, but in Donetsk there was nothing like that, and all sorts of outrages perpetrated by unauthorized groups the militias had a sad regularity. Upon the arrival of the “Slavs” in Donetsk, the attitude of civilians, however, gradually changed, thanks to the efforts made by Strelkov and his associates to restore order in the city.
Soon Margarita was sent on a business trip to Russia in order to testify about what is happening in Novorossia and seek any possible support. She left Donetsk for the only remaining sweep corridor from all sides. The journalist of “Arguments and Facts” Maria Pozdnyakova, who met her in Moscow, wrote in her article: “Margarita puts candles for the rest. Then he kneels at the relics of the saint of God and prays for a long time, bowing his head. "Physically, I am here, and my soul is in Donetsk."
In Germany, Margarita, according to her, has already been counted among the terrorists, and she faces up to 10 years in prison. And she does not lose hope to break through the wall of lies, which was erected by the majority of Western media about New Russia. “A familiar German journalist gets drunk because she is not allowed to publish the truth. Interviews that are taken from me are misinterpreted. And yet Europe is waking up - several thousands of rallies in support of Novorossiya have taken place in Germany. ”
We have already descended into the noisy Moscow metro, and my voice recorder is still working and recording Margarita’s words: “I hope everyone here understands that we are protecting Russia in the Donbas as well. If Donetsk falls, ukrofashisty on the orders of Western masters will go further. Ukrofashizm artificially and diligently grown! And financed, both the United States and my country - Germany. Almost 150 years ago, Prince Otto von Bismarck argued that Russia is invincible, unless the united great Russian people are divided - to separate Little Russians from Great Russians, create the myth of “Ukrainians,” tear these people from their roots, their history and sow, sow hatred between them ".
The last words of Margarita, before we parted, and she went to the office to kind people, where she would be given a folding bed: “If necessary, I am ready to give my life for my precious Holy Russia. And, I hope, with a clear conscience to go to the Kingdom of Heaven ”.
This simple truth, for which the Donbass is fighting, the Russian German struggled to convey to the heart of Russia: “They don’t think that our fighters, militiamen only guard Donbass or just want to liberate their land from the fascists, no, this is not so. It is necessary to clearly understand that the political situation is such that the regime, the fascist regime in Kiev is a puppet regime. They fulfill the will of the US Pentagon. This is clearly seen, for example, immediately after Maidan, when power was already seized by force. Next to the Ukrainian flag, hung the flag of the United States. And they shout about independence, "independence" of Ukraine, but in fact, Ukraine has long lost its independence. They made it an instrument of the Pentagon and the United States, the European Union. Signed a bonded association agreement with the European Union. And all this is of course very scary. It is necessary to clearly understand that we stand on guard not only of the Donbass, but of Russia. Because if the Donbass does not stand, they will encroach on Russia as follows. And this is their ultimate goal. Viktor Yanukovych tried to negotiate with the junta, and we, we know how it ended, he had to flee. Before that, Milosevic tried to reach an agreement with the West, and Gaddafi tried to reach an agreement with the West, and they ended up very sadly. And for their own people this is also very sadly over. And we must think very carefully and see that it is with Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and the Russian people that this does not happen. This is a great danger, and we must understand that now there is an intensified introduction of its agents on the territory of the Russian Federation, which will try to unleash the “swamp” movements again in order to destabilize the country from the inside. This is the 2 factor, another provocation with Boeing, in which immediately without the results of the study, some people accused us, the militia, allegedly we shot down the plane. And the most part, the official version, that allegedly the Russian Federation is to blame for having shot down this plane. Both versions, of course, are false, this is a clear lie. The militias have no means, no installations that can knock down an airplane that flies at an altitude of 10 kilometers. The representative of the Ukrainian troops, Savchenko, who was taken prisoner, said the same thing on TV channels, that this is simply impossible. It is now necessary to introduce peacekeeping troops and save the Donbass. These are our people - these are Russian people who are dying there. I consider it a crime to look at how they are killed and to take a stand of expectations or even try to reach an agreement ”.
In an interview with Free Press, Margarita testified that the militias are waiting for a cry for help: “Of course, help is coming, help is coming, for which we are very grateful, mainly informational help, humanitarian aid. But help is not enough. Until now, the militias do not have a salary, and uniforms are also absolutely necessary. I said when they left Donetsk with the militias, they showed me homemade hand grenades. We are fighting there with obsolete Kalashnikovs, 50 years old. Thank God they still shoot, they were well cleaned. In Slavyansk there was a situation that we had 2 tank against it is not known how many, but the ratio was 1 tank per 500 enemy, and so on. Aviation we, for example, do not. And if large, namely powerful help from the Russian Federation does not come, namely with regard to armored vehicles and manpower, then I am afraid that our days are counted there. Although I want to believe that the militias will win, that we will win. we have one advantage - it's fighting spirit. Fighting spirit, surpasses the spirit of the enemy many times. They don’t know what they’re fighting for. Many, perplexed, are already thinking of switching to our side or are switching to the territory of the Russian Federation, because they are already beginning to understand that it is impossible to kill their own people and that the idea of fascism is a godless idea. And so they are now beginning to massively switch to our side. But you need to see the other side, now there is a powerful help to the Ukrainian troops from NATO. Yesterday, in my opinion, a transport Boeing (military aircraft) landed in Kharkov, the contents of which are unclear. It is probably assumed that they were transporting weapons. They are assisted by NATO instructors: they supply them with armored vehicles, modern automatic weapons, and so on. Help is simply not enough for us. It is necessary to strengthen aid dozens of times so that the fighters can cope with such an advantage of the enemy ”.
In the meantime, in Donetsk and Moscow, there was already a mean intrigue around Strelkov, the result of which was his forced departure from the post of Minister of Defense and the abandonment of Donbass. After that, Margarita, like her comrades-in-arms, could no longer return to Donetsk, where the shooters found themselves in a very difficult and vulnerable position and at any moment could expect a backstab, which, however, caught up with some of them. But this is another story ...
Having stayed in Russia, Zaydler settled in Sevastopol and dedicated herself to helping the wounded, refugees, Orthodox parishes in Novorossia, joined the presidium of the Commonwealth of Veterans of the Donbas Militia (REDD). She received refugee status in the Russian Federation and hopes to obtain Russian citizenship. “I don't care how I live, I can live modestly. I just want to continue to work for the glory of God, for the glory of Russia. And wherever the Lord places me, I will be there ”, says Margarita.
She continues to work on the informational battlefield, trying to convey the truth in her public speeches and articles. Like many, she is seriously worried about the current situation in Russia. “We live in an extremely anxious time,” she writes in one of her articles. - The so-called "ATO" in the territories of Novorossia takes dozens of lives of innocent people every day — children, women, and elderly people. They die as a result of hostilities by the Armed Forces of Ukraine and NATO, and often die at the hands of the executioners of the “right sector” ...
Or ... from hunger.
The war there is fought not so much against Novorossia, as against the Crimea and Great Russia.
God forbid, Donbass will not stand, the war will certainly spread to the Crimea and Russia, this is logical and consistent, because the Western curators of the Kiev fascist junta are not interested in conquering only Novorossia, they need to destroy Russia!
Most recently, we were happy and celebrated the victory of the Crimean Russian Spring. But it is very easy for this joy to turn into a bitter cry when the APU, together with NATO forces, go on the attack on, as they consider, the “annexed by Russia” Crimea. This scenario is likely to become a terrible reality. And the position of the Crimea is actually hopeless, it is cut off from big Russia, therefore, the peninsula can be for all of us a real "mousetrap". We have already been cut off from the mainland, blocking and controlling transport. The situation would have been completely different if the offensive of the armies of Novorossia to Mariupol in the fall of last year had not been suspended by the “peace treaties”. We would have a land connection with the mainland, which is a decisive factor for the security of the Crimea:
The recent “agreements” of the government of the Russian Federation with the Kiev junta on the surrender of the Chongar peninsulas, Ada and part of the Arabat Spit caused bewilderment. All these places are of great strategic importance, and surrendering them to enemies without a fight is simply amazing ... "Around betrayal, and cowardice, and deception!" - so relevant are these bitter words of St. Tsar - Martyr Nicholas II!
On the eve of the Crimean referendum, 15 March, on the day of the celebration of the Reigning Icon of the Mother of God, we also toured the whole Crimea with a procession of the cross, served prayers at the checkpoints of Chongar and the Turkish Wall, which has now become impossible ...
I see with great sorrow that our government repeats the mistakes of Viktor Yanukovych, who also tried to negotiate something with the Maidan rebels and their Western curators, that he was almost worth his life and plunged the whole country into bloody chaos! The most favorable moments for the solution of the conflict and the liberation of Ukraine from the fascists have long been missed. But it is not too late yet, you can still save the situation and the lives of tens of thousands of people! It is necessary to strengthen the prayers, by the way, about the admonition of our government. ”
About Margaret Seidler, a German woman with a truly Russian soul, you can paraphrase Pushkin to say: “She’s Russian, from pre-Russian, Russian!” She herself says of herself:
“I have long been a Russian spirit since I became an Orthodox person. When I say “we”, “us” are fired upon — it is you, Russians. I think there are many Germans in history who faithfully served the Russian empire, for example, during the reign of Tsar Nicholas II there was one general who remained faithful to the end and did not refuse his oath. Who took the martyr's death and even shot him near the St. Sophia Cathedral in Kiev. Between the Sofia Cathedral and the monument to Bogdan Khmelnitsky. A lot of Germans who loved Russia. By the way, the Queen, the martyr Alexandra Feodorovna is also known, she was a princess of Hesse of Darmstadt, and even when the situation was extremely critical and offered to go into emigration, she said: “No, I love Russia so much, and better I will work as a floor cleaner until the end of my days, rather than leave Moscow. ” She wholeheartedly fell in love with Orthodoxy and adopted Russia as her homeland. Of course, I have nothing to compare with it, I am far away from it, but I want to say that I, too, wholeheartedly loved Russia, and look at Russia as my spiritual homeland and my real homeland. And I am ready to protect her. ”
