Bishop Longin of the UPTs/MP on the Junta Mobilisation: “Don’t Give Your Children to the Satanists to Die!”

00 #savedonbasspeople 01. 29.05.14

_______________________________

This anti-war appeal of Bishop Longin is especially popular amongst national minorities in the Ukrainian border regions. When the fourth wave of mobilisation began in Romanian villages in Chernovtsy Oblast, people snapped up copies of the Romanian-language newspaper Libertatea Cuvantului with an appeal of UPTs/MP Bishop Longin, the well-known Superior of Bachensky Monastery in Chernovtsy Oblast. This monastery and its superior are famous for the fact that it shelters hundreds of sick orphans, 200 of them personally adopted the abbot. The film Форпост (Forpost: Outpost) on the Vladyki Longin and his children is widely known. However, the Bishop addressed his appeal to yet-complete and happy families. He first released it in September, but the newspaper (owned by a member of the Chernovtsy Gorsoviet) printed it a day after the junta announced the mobilisation:

I ask you only one thing… come together and don’t send your children to die.  Our Orthodox faith doesn’t allow us to kill each other. For the sake of their political interests, for the sake of defending their economic gain, for the sake of defending their leadership positions, they want to kill our people, who live peacefully with faith in God. My family, you don’t have the right to shoot and kill. God gives us life, and God takes it away. The overlords of the Ukraine said, “The Orthodox faith is the biggest enemy of the Ukraine”. That’s what they told outsiders, who can’t accept the truth due to their blindness.

How can you pick up a gun and shoot at the image of God? He has, as we have, a mother, wife, and children. What forces us to kill each other? True, they only scratch the surface… already, there are thousands and tens of thousands of dead, but they only talk about hundreds. I don’t bless the war. We call all of you to peace. There are about 10,000 dead soldiers; not even their mothers know that they’re no longer alive. I don’t involve myself in politics, but what hurts me is that this isn’t a war with an external enemy; it’s a war between us.

The USA wants to see Orthodox killing each other, they like to see us shooting at each other, whilst they drink, eat, and have fun… they glory in the blood shed on our holy land. Europe, of which the Holy Fathers said, “Do not worship the beast”, now stands on the sidelines and rejoices at our spilled Orthodox blood. Brothers! We all feel that we’re on the verge of World War III. That’s why I urge you… repent! Don’t give our children over to death!

During the Liturgy, I’ll never commemorate the damned leaders of our country… they’re unbelievers with no fear of God, who sit in their seats and wave their hands to command… “Kill!” I beg only one thing, “If you can, O Lord, enlighten them, as darkness covers them, and poison fills them. They have no taste for anything except spilled blood, which they enjoy. Satanists! They’re Servants of Satan! If they won’t stop, they’ll defy God, but that’ll bring down much grief!”

Equally disturbing is the situation in bordering Romania and, even more so, in multinational Bessarabia. In Belgorod-Dnestrovsky Raion, the local Voenkom cancelled the Constitution! It banned any reservist to leave the area unless they have permission. Lawyers noted in the Odessa newspaper Dumskaya that this order is contrary to the article of the Constitution which provides for freedom of movement (this limitation is possible only in case of emergency or martial law). It is also illegal to dismiss those called up as the law guarantees to every conscripted man continued employment and wages during the year. However, the local bosses see no crime in this. Yuri Piskun, the head of the Odessa Oblast Voenkom said, “If they see that people are leaving the area, then, what else should they do?” However, why should this surprise us when the actual mobilisation violates the Constitution?

However, in Bessarabia, not all “ran away”. Some “defended their rights” in upholding constitutional rights. Kulevcha rebelled against mobilisation. Six Voenkom members brought 240 subpoenas, in a rural locality of less than a thousand people. In response to the threat of criminal prosecution, the villagers chanted, “No to war!” and “We want peace!” With great audacity, they confronted the military officers, telling them that martial law wasn’t in force. Then, they expelled the Voenkom from the village. Standing there in the village square, they appealed to the local authorities, calling the mobilisation forced and illegal. They promised that the entire village would resist any attempt to seize their relatives. Similarly, residents of the Bulgarian village of Dmitrovka in Bolgrad Raion expelled the Voenkom, which brought 200 summonses. We don’t know if a Right Sector punitive expedition is going to descend on these Bessarabian villages.

Let’s look at another place where it didn’t happen either, Peregonsk in Kalush Raion in Ivano-Frankovsk Oblast. Supposedly, it was full of Galician National Consciousness, it had “vowed at war with the Raška”. So, on 19 January, right before the start of mobilisation, 26 buses left Peregonsk loaded with workers… bound for Khabarovsk and Krasnoyarsk Krai. Oleg Goncharuk, the Chairman of the Oblast OGA, stated, “In the region, the critics of the mobilisation are active, the Podkarpatski aren’t sufficiently aware of the need to replenish the Armed Forces”. However, he refused to admit that local activists resist the mobilisation. Rather, he believed, “It’s either an unprofessional Voenkom or its due to bribery of officials”. That is why the Right Sector decided to assume control of the mobilisation. In Galicia, they’ve gone to the forest… in Odessa, as usual, they go “underground”… but, of course, it’s much more tragic than funny.

Speech of V V Putin, President of the Russian Federation, at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre, Moscow RF on the Occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Auschwitz Death Camp by the Red Army on 27 January 1945

______________________________

70 years ago, Soviet troops liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp where the Nazis slaughtered millions of people. A decision of the UN declared this day, 27 January, International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Holocaust… one of the deadliest crimes against humanity… has become a symbol of grief and pain, of unbridled cruelty and neglect for human life. It’s hard to imagine that real death factories, mass shootings, and deportations were a reality of the 20th century, organised in cold blood in what then seemed to be a civilised Europe. Yes, people planned and organised them in cold blood. We’ve now seen the exhibition that you’ve seen as well… this was a planned deliberate operation to destroy people. Incredibly simple.

However, as history shows wherever ideas of ethnic or racial supremacy are put into people’s heads and the seeds of inter-ethnic hatred are sown, wherever traditional human values are destroyed and trampled upon, civilisation is quickly and inevitably replaced with barbarity, whilst peace is replaced with cruel conflicts, war, and aggression. The Nazis threatened to enslave the peoples of our multi-ethnic state. They were to be either assimilated by force and turned into slaves, or, destroyed to create so-called living space for some “higher race”.

According to the materials of the Nürnberg trials, the Nazis killed six million Jews in Europe during the Holocaust. These numbers are unfathomable. They didn’t die in battle… they simply destroyed them… burnt in furnaces or shot. Among those millions are hundreds of thousands of our compatriots. Such crimes don’t and shouldn’t have a term of limitation. We can neither forgive nor forget them. Any attempts to hush up these events up, to distort or “rewrite” history are unacceptable and immoral. Frequently, such attempts cover up the desire to hide one’s shameful behaviour… cowardice, hypocrisy, and treason, and to justify one’s direct or indirect silent collusion with the Nazis in implementing their criminal policy. However, historical facts are irrefutable. Thus, they show that Banderovtsy and other collaborationists and Hitler’s henchmen were themselves involved in the destruction of the Jewish people, in the destruction of Jews in Lvov, Odessa, Kiev, and other Ukrainian towns and cities, whilst Nazis in the Baltic states conducted ethnic cleansing in Vilnius and Riga, in Kaunas and Tallinn.

On this tragic day, we honour the memory of all those tortured by the Nazis and their henchmen in concentration camps and ghettoes. We grieve for the millions who died in the flames of the bloodiest of wars in the history of mankind. I’d like to note that on the initiative of public and religious organisations, and not only Jewish organisations, Russia conducts a search for and tending to mass burial grounds of Holocaust victims and we are recovering the names of those victims. This effort deserves special support and we’ll definitely continue it. Today, we pay tribute to the courage of those who survived the horrors of occupation, violence, and humiliating forced labour, those who survived these inhuman trials and remained unbroken.

In this connection, I can’t help recalling another date… today, we mark the anniversary of the liberation of Leningrad from the Nazi blockade. This was yet another example of a criminal massacre organised by the Nazis, who destroyed the civilian population of Leningrad in cold blood trough bombing raids and direct artillery attacks. We bow to the heroic feat of the Red Army officers and men who defeated Nazism and stopped the terrible annihilation machine. It wasn’t only their Motherland that they protected from the aggressors. Their great liberation mission became a deed of honour for our entire people. In this connection, I’d like to say that as we’ve just recalled, Russians bore the brunt of the battle against Nazism. Seventy percent of all the Red Army officers and men were Russians, and the Russian people made the largest sacrifice in the name of victory.

However, here within the confines of the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Centre I’d like to recall that Jewish citizens of the USSR made an enormous contribution to the victory over our enemy. More than half a million Jews fought in the Red Army, over 40,000 were members of partisan units. Almost a third of them (27 percent) were volunteers. Almost 200,000 died in battles for their Fatherland. The heroism of representatives of all ethnic groups, their selfless love for their homeland, their readiness for self-sacrifice will always remain in our memory, in the thankful memory of the peoples of Russia. As we celebrate this year, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory, we’ll again and again address words of our warmest gratitude to our dear veterans, including those present here, those who gave themselves for the freedom and independence of their Motherland.

Friends, as we pay tribute, we should look ahead into the future. We shouldn’t allow crimes similar to the Holocaust to be repeated. This is our common duty; without exaggeration, it’s the most important and pressing task for the entire world community. True, there has been significant change on the world arena in the past decades. However, we see that antihuman ideas are still alive. We continue to come across attempts at dividing mankind on ethnic, racial, or religious grounds and demonstrations of anti-Semitism, Russophobia, and aggressive intolerance of other ethnic groups, cultures, and traditions.

Nazis made use of these primitive instincts back in their times; now, neonationalists, extremists, and terrorists in a number of countries and regions use them. We have to counter these threats together, to protect the peace and freedom of the people together, and defend the right of states and peoples to choose their own development path. History shows what a terrible abyss claims at world supremacy could lead humanity to; what tragedy may result from attempts at putting pressure on sovereign states or failure to respect their rights. We all know how dangerous and destructive double standards and indifference to others may be. Take, for instance, the current tragedy in [Novorossiya], where the peaceful people of Donetsk, Lugansk, and other towns and cities have been shot for months in cold blood. I would like to repeat that today, in the 21st century, it’s important to enhance the efficiency of the collective security system and to promote the values of humanism and coöperation and to always bear in mind the lessons we learn from history.

In conclusion, dear friends, I can’t help sharing my own impressions of the film we saw. Of course, we all know about those death camps and we often use such words as antihuman and crime, and we know what the Holocaust is about. However, as how cruel as this may sound… sometimes, these words are abused and lose their initial meaning. When you see such documentary evidence it all comes back with renewed force. One tends to realise what we had to deal with, what humanity and people had to deal with back then. We honour all those who died and all those who put an end to this massacre.

26 January 2015. The Forgotten Victims of the Nazis… the Soviet POWs

Ukrainian Nazi poster

This is what the Nazi collaborators did… the Wehrmacht didn’t protest this at all. Reflect on the fact that the Wehrmacht aided the campaign of extermination in the East. Racism was the engine of extermination. That’s why we have to face it wherever it pops up. Whether it’s Goebbels or Limbaugh… hate propaganda is the same under the skin. Nazi or Republican… the spectre of a New Long Night threatened and threatens humanity. We fought off the first… shall we fight off the second? We defeated the Master Race, shall we defeat the Almighty Dollar? 

______________________________

Read this.

Reflect on this. The US Republican Party always covered over the war crimes of the Wehrmacht and of Croat, Balt, and Galician collaborators. It also covered over the war crimes of KONR… a group that seized control of the ROCOR from 1948 until the ’07 Reconciliation with the Mother Church. Reflect on this… Germany pays pensions to those who committed crimes against humanity on the Russian Front in the Wehrmacht and SS, but refuses pensions to those who served in the anti-fascist and anti-capitalist NVA. I find that evil… I’m NOT alone. Behind the Russophobia of the US Republicans is a sick racism, akin to that of the Nazis. Remember… US officers sheltered Balt, Croat, and Galician war criminals (the SS Cossacks were in the British Zone, so, they weren’t so “lucky”)… as a result, their hate survived to bring chaos into the world yet again.

Russian Orthodox people… we’ve allowed people like Potapov to be influential amongst us for far too long. It’s time for us to get rid of those who either were collaborators themselves or are unrepentant family members of collaborators (that is, they have to admit that their parents were criminals and that their legacy was evil). It’s our DUTY before mankind…

____________________________

In Moscow, Night Wolves MC bikers gave a New Year show for children from the Donbass. The bikers invited more than 50 kids from Lugansk to see the show. A S Zaldostanov (nicknamed Khirug (the Surgeon)), the Night Wolves’ leader, is an Anti-Maidan movement activist. Zaldostanov received the Order of Honour in 2013 for his patriotic work with kids and his participation in searches for the bodies of those fallen in the VOV. He told TASS after the show that patriotic performances were as important for kids as fairy tales were, saying, “We must bring up children with a sense of patriotism. They must love their native land and be able to defend it in hard times”. In the performance, various characters united to defend the Motherland and forced the enemies out. The bikers in the show demonstrated their riding skills, exhibiting jumps and other stunts; the small spectators watched it with amazement and admiration. The bikers accompanied it all with pyrotechnics. Zaldostanov said that they’d give two more performances for Donbass kids on 23 and 24 January.

The amoral Republican filth saw to it that the Surgeon was placed on the sanctions list. Fancy that… I don’t think that it’ll slow him down at all. Who do you want to stand with? Rush Limboob, Sarah Palin, and Ted Cruz… or the Surgeon? I stand with Aleksandr Sergeyevich… what about you?
