15 September, the club "Kind Russian People" together with the "People's Diplomacy" foundation held a presentation of the book "Russian Tri-unity", where well-known political scientists and experts on nationalism made speeches. They not only shared their thoughts on the book, but also talked about the current state of affairs , the advantages of Russian-Belarusian relations, and outlined the best scenarios of the future.
It is no secret that in Belarus a policy of an alternative, non-Russian national identity has long been pursued. They call it differently: zmagarstvo, litvinstvo, but the essence is different: Belarusian elites are trying to convince the inhabitants of the country that they are not Russians at all, but on the contrary: Russians are a stranger and historically hostile people.
The identity policy "we are not Russians" inevitably leads to a conflict with the Russians, as happened in Ukraine (yes, there were other lines of confrontation, but nevertheless). Someday it can happen in Belarus.
Until recently, the authorities of Belarus supported the policy of zmagarization implicitly, but in 2018 a significant event happened: for the first time it was officially allowed to celebrate the so-called "Day of the Will", the main symbol of the nationalists-zmagars. From this moment the countdown to the point of no return is started, when the Belarusians will accept the discourse imposed on them, that the Russians are "not Slavs", "moksha" and generally enemies.
It's time for us to act with our weapons - historical truth. Recently, the "White Russian publishing house 18 / 63" published the book "Russian Trinity: A Guide to Zmagar Education". The book contains evidence of famous scientists, publicists, writers that the Russian people consists of three sub-ethnoses - great, small and Belarusians. What do we have in common, say, Adam Mickiewicz, Fedor Dostoevsky, Pavel Milyukov and Karl Marx? Only one thing - they all believed that in Minsk, Moscow and Kiev there lived one people - the Russians.
Kirill Averyanov-Minsk, Bogdan Bezpalko, Oleg Nemensky, Alexey Kochetkov, Egor Kholmogorov, Alexander Vasiliev, Kirill Frolov, Artem Birlov, Vladimir Zotov, Sergey Zhavoronkov spoke at the club meeting. The host of the meeting is the political scientist and journalist Ivan Skorikov.
A little about the book "Russian Trinity: A Guide to Educating Zmagars":
In Soviet times, we were told that in the BSSR, the Ukrainian SSR and the RSFSR the fraternal East Slavic peoples live, in the post-Soviet period they began to convince us that we have nothing in common with each other. However, a hundred years ago, no one had any doubt that in the expanses from Brest to Vladivostok and from Murmansk to Odessa there lived a triune Russian people, who, according to Dostoevsky, is the master of the Russian land.
This book should read every Belarusian, Great Russian and Ukrainian. The Belarusian will receive arguments to intellectually oppose the white-chyrvona-white zmagaram, Great-Russian will understand that he is not the only one who has the right to consider himself Russian, and the Ukrainian realizes that in fact he is little Russian and should be proud of it.
The book is structured in such a way that after reading it you will be able to elegantly silence any Zmagar and all his associates (Ukrainian independentists, Russian liberals, etc.) telling you about “we will never be brothers”. “What kind of brothers, Zmitser / Taras / Abram ?! The inhabitants of Great, Little and White Russia make up the Russian people just like the Prussians, Bavarians and Saxons - German. Did not you read the work of prof. A.A. Shakhmatova? And prof. E.F. Kara?
