Do you know what the Ukrainians (or rather, the “Ukrainians”) have succeeded in? They strongly cultivated the national myth. Let him be deceitful and artificial, of any kind, more than half lapped from Russian, Cossack, half invented, but still he is somehow, they cultivate him in every possible way, which laid a great passion.
I sit on the Internet in Donetsk. The territory of the DNI, but legally it is Ukraine. It turns out various pro-Ukrainian advertising, including, for example, an offer to buy "patriotic t-shirts." Naturally, with tridents, yellow-blue and red-black flags, Bandera, etc. Since gaining independence, the Ukrainian state has spent a lot of moral and material resources to create nat. the myth. It is the creation, not the development. Look, all these embroidered shirts and towels, in principle, are an all-Russian heritage and were distributed throughout Russia before the revolution. Ukrainian (that is, Little-Russian) patterns on towels and clothes are similar to Great-Russian and Belarusian to the point of confusion. "Ukrainians" before the beginning of the 20 century attributed themselves to the Russian people. “Ukraine” is not a nationality, but a political movement created to tear Ukraine away from Russia. Traditionally, “Ukrainians” kept Russian identification (the term itself was taken in quotation marks, because it means not a “people” at all, but a kind of party that mimics an independent ethnicity), but the population had a self-name — Rusyns, throughout Malorus / Ukraine, and not only in the Carpathian region. Only since 1914, the self-name “Ukrainians” began to be imposed by force. Dissenters were destroyed. And then both in the central and eastern Ukraine, and in the Carpathians, Russophile sentiments persisted, Ukrainians were perceived as a purely Galician substrate. In Galicia, pro-Ukrainian sentiments are stronger, because this idea and the power methods of its implementation are tested there for the first time.
"Ukraine" is hatred. Not a light and righteous hatred of God's enemies, but a black and inhuman satanic hatred.
For example, the following excerpt from the magazine Ukrainian Hut (1912. No. 6) is characteristic: “If you love Ukraine, you must sacrifice love for other geographic units. If you love your language, then hate the language of the enemy ... Be able to hate. If we are talking about Ukraine, then we must operate with one word - hatred of its enemies. ” And further: “The revival of Ukraine is a synonym for hatred for his wife - a bow tie, for his children - Katsapchats, for his brothers and sisters of Katsaps, for his father and mother for Katsaps. To love Ukraine is to sacrifice Katsapa relatives. ”
Where did the aggression of the Ukrainians come from? Yes, from where, from the very Ukrainians. From hell. This is a synthetic ideology created to reject one part of the Russian people from another. On aggression and hate all this holds. The locomotive of the idea is precisely this blind aggressive hatred of Russians and Russia, which comes through in every judgment, in every assessment, in the perception of any event, past or present. Without this psychopathic aggression, with an adequate sober consideration, the idea of “Ukrainians” crumbles to smithereens. Understanding and knowing the history of people just renounce this drug sleep. Hatred - it blinds. Aggression does not give a sober assessment of the situation. Ukrainians are Russians with brainwashing (as one acquaintance of a Romanian from Bukovina said). In this case, aggression is a means of controlling the mob, which is set on blood brothers in the all-Russian heritage like dogs. Aggression, like a veil, does not allow these “Ukrainians” to see the truth. It atrophies consciousness. “Ukraine”, as an ideology, will not resist the truthful arguments, antiheroes (like Mazepa) will not stand before Heroes. So this aggression in turn proves the artificiality of this ideology itself. Ukrainians-they are the same Ukrainians by nationality, as I by nationality Volzhanin. Because there is no such nation, but there are Russians living not on the Volga.
A sober assessment will help them to know that they are Russian, that the Orlik constitution never actually existed, that Mazepa led the village of peasants into captivity to the Tatars, that his Cossacks refused to fight the Russian Orthodox co-religionists, in fact, why Mazepa fled. And also that Lviv region is in fact Chervonnaya Rus (Russia Rubra (lat.)), And that even in the Vatican Ukrainians are still called “rutheni” (that is, Russians, Ruthenia is one of the forms of writing the word Russia or Russia in Latin). And that Vladimir the Great is, it turns out, a Russian prince, not a Ukrainian one, and that he founded the city of Vladimir northeast of Moscow. And that Yuri Dolgoruky, the founder (or rather the "renamer") of Moscow, is the prince of Kiev. But a sober assessment will give them a Russian sense of themselves and the idea of reunification in one country, and not a demand on the grounds that, they say, Yuri is a Kiev prince, to join Moscow to Ukraine, because it was occupied by “evil Muscovites”, and the realization that that they themselves, then, in fact, are the same Muscovites. And yes, even let the trident return to us (Vladimir's seal), since they are not Russians. Rurik, in fact, in the Novgorod land rules (Ladoga).
Let them return everything they stole. But they will not return, because they will remain completely naked. And to recognize yourself as a regional group of Russians is not allowed here is this hatred.
Well, okay, back to the "accessories". Here I look at this advertisement of football tridents and remember how years 10 back in Russia for a t-shirt with an eagle and the inscription "Russia" could visitors from the sunny south or antifa-shavki stick (the essence of the claim - you are a fascist, skinhead, etc.) .). Now this is no longer the case, in Russia their right marches are held, and T-shirts with patriotic attributes are freely worn. And thank God! But the problem is that we lost a lot of time. Due to inaction (or direct opposition), we did not in time form the very national myth, which unlike the Ukrainian one will not be aggressive and eating from within. Because it, again unlike the Ukrainian, is not artificial, but a real one, rising from the depths of centuries, with its own not invented history and deep philosophy. Russians are self-sufficient, they have no sense in such aggression. Especially to their own people, albeit with "brainwashed".
We have both a national culture and a national myth. We need to cultivate it on a fertile soil, and not synthesize in the laboratory some crazy professor (like Grushevsky).
Still, the chivalrous nobility of the White Movement does not compare with Bandera’s “rural neighborhoods” (by the way, Spanish is the last name, oops ... Although, in fact, it’s hard to say for sure, there are Romania with the language of the Romance group ...)
And the thick volume of Ilyin is much more intelligent than "Ukraine has not died".
Well, we started the national myth.
What is the mistake of the Russian leadership regarding Ukraine? The mistake is just in misunderstanding the importance of ideology and national myth. Actually, the mistake was made just by those who, for the sake of economy and profit, prevented the Russian national myth from developing. In unison with the Ukrainians, by the way, be aware of themselves as the Russian people and build. And do not smash the capital - Moscow, Kiev - without a difference.
Instead of financing cultural and national pro-Russian organizations and projects, they financed the ruling elite, for the sake of its loyalty to Russia, fed it with huge discounts on gas, rent for the Sevastopol base of the Russian Navy. And where is he, this elite? Today one, tomorrow another ... And yet, the beau monde has a tendency to support those who give more money. Even this beau monde can be changed. And they would have fed ideology, values, which is supra-material and timeless, for a long time the Crimea (that is, Tavrida — we speak correctly!) Would be Russian. Beau monde shatok, especially in Ukraine. It can be changed for the sake of ideology, and not economics. Even if the economy can somehow be woven, the ideological factor always dominates in the sphere of drive.
The mistake of Russian politicians is that they just plainly frisked Ukraine with such mundane foundations, frankly speaking, placing a bet on "wine, bread, and spectacles."
Our geopolitical opponents knew this, and the stake was made for ideals. False, anti-Russian, aggressive, arbitrarily inadequate and artificial ideals ... But still on ideals. On the myth. Throughout Ukraine, only you can hear - "heroes do not die out" ... Yes, Heroes Do not Die. Our task is to explain to these people that these are not heroes. Our task is to show the true heroes.
"Our hope is for those young people who suffer from fever, devoured by green pus of disgust, at those young souls who, being true gentlemen, painfully trail through the structure of the pig troughs. Our hope is for their rebellion, which will require a great destruction of the world of forms, which will require explosives to clear the living space in the name of a new hierarchy "
"Heroes, believers and lovers do not die. In each generation they appear again, and in this sense the myth triumphs at all times. "
"When we look ahead and into the distance, and see the coming Russia, we see it as a national state, protecting and serving Russian national culture. After a long revolutionary break, after a painful communist-international failure, Russia will return to free self-affirmation and independence, find its own healthy self-preservation instinct, reconcile it with its spiritual well-being and begin a new period of its historical flourishing. "
The Russian state should invest forces and means in ideology. Russian ideology. Only then will the state be a true empire.
