______________________________

On 12 April, an auto-motorcycle rally sponsored by the Kerch Gorkom of the KPRF and the RF Leninist Komsomol (LKSM RF), along with support from local bikers, honoured the 70th anniversary of Kerch’s liberation from the fascist occupiers. This is the eighth such rally; this year, the Gorsoviet of Veterans Organisations joined the participants.In the morning, everyone met at the railway station. Forming up into a column, they marched to a military cemetery. At one of the mass graves, the participants stopped to give their respects, headed by I I Zheltenko, the First Secretary of the KPRF Kerch Gorkom. After laying down flowers, the group moved to the Adzhimushkai Quarry Memorial Complex, where they also laid down flowers, and then toured the facilities. Then, the rally participants drove to Eltigen, where they visited another Place of Military Glory. The Kerch Gorkom of the KPRF and the LKSM RF received thanks for their sponsorship from Aleksandr Leontiev, the leader of the biker section, and from Nadezhda Shepel, a staff member of the Republic of the Crimea “Kerch Historical and Cultural Reserve”.

Editor:

It’s not taking long for the Crimea to shake off the hated “Ukrainian” occupation. In fact, the same will be true of most of the “Ukraine”. In fact, Russian patriotism will be strongest in these regions… for they know what it means to be truly Russian after having suffered persecution, scorn, and ridicule from ignorant nekulturny Galician hillbillies for far too long. Holy Rus has deep roots in our blood and soil… the “Ukraine” is a foreign implant… it’ll wither and disappear so quickly that many will wonder that it was ever there. May the rest of the “Ukraine” follow the Crimea’s path… and quickly.

8 April 2014. Blessed Matrona and Stalin: Did It Happen and Is This an Icon?

_______________________________

Before we do anything else, let’s delve into the question, “Is this an icon, and is it’s painter a Church person?” Let’s take the latter first… Ilya Pivnik is a well-known icon painter in St Petersburg; particularly, his excellent depictions of New Martyrs are in many churches. Therefore, Pivnik isn’t some unreliable dabbler in iconography. He spent some months on Mount Athos, where he painted icons for several chapels.

______________________________

Is Pivnik’s painting an icon? Certainly, it follows the canons of Russian icon painting. Note well that I V Stalin doesn’t have a nimbus. In researching this, about 95 percent of the images “out there” lack such, the few that have such seem to be PhotoShops. Indeed, it’s clear from the icon that Stalin isn’t a holy figure; he’s simply a figure in the action. If one was to simply gauge from this icon, it’s apparent that the only “holy figure” in the icon is Blessed Matrona. Note well that she doesn’t bless Stalin or curse him. She’s simply in her room and Stalin is walking away, not even talking to her. The only takeaway from this is that Stalin and Blessed Matrona maybe talked, and that Stalin’s leaving.

Is this controversial? You bet your ass! It’s radioactive. There’s so much “Sturm und Drang” that I’d say that it’s impossible to get at the truth of the matter. Click here for a discussion on the controversy surrounding this icon. Did Stalin meet Matrona? She was a well-known figure in the city and Stalin’s views on religion (particularly, in later life) were ambiguous and (sometimes) contradictory. The Church fared relatively well after 1941… it was Khrushchyov who shut down parishes by the gross (when the persecution ended, 60 percent were gone).

______________________________

What’s alleged to have happened? Supposedly, Stalin went to Blessed Matrona to receive her blessing for his defence of Moscow. Some say that she blessed him and prayed for the victory of the Red Army. This isn’t new in Russian history… St Sergei of Radonezh blessed Grand Prince St Dmitri Donskoi and St Serafim Vyritsky prayed for the victory of the Red Army in the VOV. However, there’s been so much kerfuffle that we’ll never really KNOW if it happened. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

As for me, I BELIEVE. I won’t have an argument… I BELIEVE.

Mark this down well… we have a terrible crisis facing Holy Rus, one as serious as the Fascist invasion. America threatens Holy Rus using Galician/Ukie Nationalist clients. The Vatican backs America (at least, segments of it do). They want to rape Russia and pick it as cleanly as they’ve stripped the Ukraine. I believe that Red and White must unite to fight the foe. This means that we mustn’t support those in the USA who hate our motherland and want to destroy her. That’s why good Orthodox Christians can’t have anything to do with Uniates or Republicans or Langley or the US State Department or any part of the American foreign policy apparat… all are the sworn enemies of Holy Rus.

It’s time to stand behind Holy Rus and the Assembly of All the Saints Who Shone Forth in the Russian Land. It’s time to make Potapov and Paffhausen repudiate their past whoring for Langley and the K Street slimeocracy in public. At least, we shouldn’t stand with those who hate our ethos… and the Republican Party, with its repulsive “Rugged Individualism” stands against everything held by the Holy Church.

It’s time to stand up… God wills it…

Patriarch Kirill Compares Ukrainian Coup to Early Bolshevik Atheism… Uniate Pig Praises Junta and Coup and Attacks HH’s Ideals… One of These Things is NOT Like the Other!

00 Grave of  St Maksim Sandovich. 09.12

St Maksim Sandovich suffered martyrdom as he refused to kiss the Pope’s ass (that would’ve saved his life)… is Fr Dmitri Sidor going to suffer the same fate? As the Uniates hated St Maksim, they hate Fr Dmitri. Fr Dmitri was last seen being dragged away by soulless Uniate thugs… keep that in mind as you read Shevchuk’s rant below.

______________________________

On Monday, after a molieben before the relics of Patriarch St Tikhon Bellavin at the Donskoi Monastery in Moscow, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias drew a parallel between the recent unrest in Kiev and the events of the October Revolution of 1917 in Russia, saying, “Most of us couldn’t even imagine how bad some of the things that came with that revolution were. The recent events in the Ukraine, the terrible pictures of the revolutionary uprising in the capital, the murdered people, the confused spirit and consciousness… all of this helps us to understand how confused that time in Russia was. The 1917 events saw an overturn of everything in life, followed by outrages, a terrible phenomenon of injustice in the name of achieving justice”.

Earlier today, HH also served Liturgy at the Annunciation Cathedral in the Kremlin for the Feast of the Annunciation. Addressing believers after the service, he said, “Today is a critical moment for our Motherland, so, here in the Kremlin, we prayed for the Russian state, for all of historical Rus. We prayed to the Lord that the Queen of Heaven would unfold her protecting veil over us, so that internecine warfare pitting brother against brother wouldn’t occur. We should carefully muster the spiritual force of Holy Rus… the same force that created a great state”.

______________________________

Archbishop Svyatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGKTs), gushed over the new Ukrainian junta. In an interview with the newspaper Dyen, he said, “All churches and religious organisations support the renewal of the government, it’s legitimate and moral {that’s untrue… the Uniates lie and lie openly. They support the American project to rape the Ukraine. How much is Langley paying them?: editor}. I’d call it a ‘government of national salvation’. It has an extremely difficult task… to save the Ukrainian state, bring it to a new level, to ensure the functioning of all public authorities which, as we saw, were in ruins”.

He also criticised the concept of the “Russian World”, without explaining what’s meant by this phrase, and announced plans to build a “Ukrainian world”{rather hubristic nonsense, no?: editor}, saying, “I think that this ‘Russian World’ is aggressive and a response to our construction of a Ukrainian World, which is very active and successful, both in the homeland and in the whole world. A historic event in for building our Ukrainian World was when we consecrated the Uniate Cathedral in Kiev. The Russian church has a certain weakness, it’s extremely close to a certain power structure, so, its unable to tell the truth in its entirety” {that’s truer of his lot. The Uniates sold out to the Americans like they did to the Nazis, as they were willing running dogs for the Nazis, they’re willing Uncle Toms and Step n’ Fetchits for American corporate bloodsuckers: editor}. We plan to establish a Greek Catholic Patriarchate; it’s just a matter of time”.

______________________________

Editor:

Shevchuk’s rant is a lie from stem to stern. The Uniates HATE Orthodoxy and they HATE Russia and its Civilisation (one wonders why Sophia Kishkovsky and John Jillions repeat Uniate lies… one wonders why SVS and the Syosset apparat kiss up to the Uniates)… this proves it. It also means that the Uniates ally themselves with godless Corporate America against Holy Orthodoxy… they want to stab Holy Rus in the back so that they can proselytise amongst Orthodox people. In short, to support the junta means to support those who are opponents of Christ’s Holy Church.

Yet, don’t get too hot n’ bothered. Everyone knows that the Uniates are nothing but ultramontane papists with an Orthodox veneer. In their hearts and souls, they have NOTHING in common with us. Orthodox should limit their contacts with them to the absolute minimum (ordinary RCs are what they are, they’re no threat to us at all, we can associate with them as we will). We should refuse to have any dialogue with them, and if the RCs include them at any Orthodox-Catholic meetings, we should politely, but firmly, leave, as we can’t have contacts with those who openly attack Christ’s Church. Orthodox shouldn’t frequent a website called Byzantine Texas… it’s a Uniate shit-pit full of lies. Note well that HH’s words have the ring of religion and compassion to them, whilst the Uniate scummer’s words are aggressive and warlike. I’d say that one was Christian and the other not!

Let’s keep it simple. The Uniates kiss the Pope’s naked ass without shame… they want us to do likewise. You can follow the Uniates or you can follow St Mark of Ephesus, Patriarch St Germogen of Moscow, and St Maksim Sandovich. It’s up to you. Choose well.

Oh, one last thing… until 1948, the Galician Uniates were officially called the “Ruthenian Greek Catholic Church” by Rome… there was no “Ukrainian Catholic Church” prior to that time, to use it for earlier times is a lie and an anachronism that real people should avoid. Yes… they’re going to scream at you, throw loud and distressing tantrums, and call you all sorts of vile names (and try to get you banned on the grounds of “hate speech”). We’re adults… we can suffer such juvenile nastiness from such sorts in silence, can’t we? Keep it focused.

Yuri… From Soviet to Russian… But NOT Ukrainian!

00 Yuri. NOT Ukrainian. RUSSIAN. 07.04.14.

______________________________

In Crimea, they give Russian passports to those who want them. This implies that they accept Russian citizenship, which means that they’re renouncing citizenship in the Ukraine, because, as far I can remember, Ukrainian law doesn’t permit dual citizenship. Probably, this procedure’s become rather routine, but a notable case just occurred. In one of the villages a man, Yuri, came in for his new Russian passport, but he failed to present a Ukrainian one to the authorities. When the bureaucrats asked him where his Ukrainian passport was, the man said that he refused to accept Ukrainian citizenship, and for 23 years, he held on to his old Soviet passport. Now, he was here to get a new Russian passport.
