______________________________

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…

Ukrainianism: A Cancerous Tumour in the Russian World… Banderovtsy: The Result of Ukrainisation

00 We ARE Moskali! 10.03.14

That isn’t OK with us… we ARE Moskali!

(Moskal: Galician pejorative for Great Russian, mostly redeemed by Russians today… are we Moskals? We are! Whaddaya gonna do about it?)

There’s a section where I’ve kept the original Cyrillic intact and untranslated. It doesn’t affect the meaning… it illustrates the changes that “Ukrainians” made in a particular word. Even one who can’t read Cyrillic can tell that! That’s why I did it.

******

The Ukraine! The native land of my ancestors who fought for the Russian land, for the Orthodox Faith, of the host found in the ancient Lay of Igor! Blessed land! For a long time now, in my prayer rule several times a day, I repeat two identical prayers, one for my Russian Motherland’s salvation and the other for my Ukrainian Motherland’s salvation… they’re one and indivisible in my heart. Once again, war has begun… once again, it broke out on the 22nd, not of June this time, but in February, when the Banderovtsy captured Kiev. Again, the war will be long, bloody, and undeclared… again, we face a hard defence of Crimea and Moscow… but then, as always, will come our Russian Victory!

Today, the Austrian-Polish-Soviet “Ukrainian” project is complete, and its creators can accept congratulations… they achieved their goal; they created a schism in the Russian World. They spent huge amounts of money in their attempt to reformat the Russian World, and its borne fruit… they created a Ukrainian “nation”… a “nation” of Janissaries willing to suffer, fight, and die for their ideals. The ideals of the Banderovtsy are simple… “We must destroy all traces of Russia and the Empire in the Ukraine, for if any trace of Russian tradition remains, then, establishing a Banderovtsy state is impossible”.

In 1596, the Unia forcibly tore the Christians of the Ukraine and Belarus from Orthodox Unity; the Unia placed them under the Polish Catholic yoke. Subsequent centuries saw attempts to force Polonisation and Catholicisation upon the Russian people in the Ukraine and Belarus, attempts that only ended with the return of Russian rule to these regions. After the Polish Partitions, only the western lands… Galicia, Podkarpatskaya Rus, and Bukovina remained outside the Russian Empire. Although Lvov, the main city of Galicia, was mostly Polish (in 1939, it was 70 percent Polish, 20 percent Jewish, and only 10 percent “Ukrainian”), full Polonisation in the countryside didn’t go well… they considered themselves Rusins, part of the Russian World, many looked with hope to Russia as a future deliverer from the Polish-Austrian yoke.

A new idea arose in mid-19th century Vienna… a project of ​​creating a new nation from the Rusins with an anti-Russian language and an anti-Russian ideology, a nation that would hate everything Russian. The prominent Polish priest/historian Walerian Kalinka formulated this policy as, “If Galicia can’t be mine, then, let it be neither mine nor thine”. Ludwik Mierosławski, a leader of the January Uprising, expressed it more specifically, “Let’s throw bombs and set the land afire on the Dnepr and the Don, in the heart of Russia. Let them destroy it. We should foster hatred and disputes amongst the Russian people. Then, the Russians will tear themselves with their own claws, and we’d spread and flourish”.Graf Agenor Romuald Gołuchowski, the Austrian governor of Galicia (Polish by nationality) put it more bluntly, “Let the Rusins be ‘Rusyns’… so that they’ll destroy themselves”. An advisor to Polish dictator Józef Piłsudski stated after Poland regained independence that it didn’t matter to Poles whether there really was a separate Ukrainian national consciousness within the Russian nation, “If the Ukrainian people didn’t exist, if they were just an ethnographic entity, we’d help them to achieve national consciousness. Why would we do that? To what purpose would we do that?  Then, to our east, we wouldn’t have to deal with over 90 million Great Russians and 40 million Little Russians united in an undivided strong nation”.

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Talerhof. They all had faces... 2012

Memorial to the Martyrs of Talerhof

______________________________

To carry out Ukrainisation in Galicia required violent and bloody measures… the intelligentsia who resisted it faced denunciations from newly-minted “Ukrainians” during the First World War, being killed in their native places {as was St Maksim Sandovich: editor} or imprisoned in the Austrian death camps of Talerhof and Terezín, and the majority didn’t come back from there. However, after the Civil War, the Bolsheviks took on the cause of Ukrainisation even more fiercely and consistently… a vehement Ukrainisation undergone not only in the Ukrainian SSR, but also in the Kuban and Stavropol! There weren’t that many experts in its “language”, so they had to “import” them from Poland… to remedy a lack of textbooks, they used books printed in the Austro-Hungarian Empire… with portraits of Franz Joseph! By the end of 1925, an “army” of 50,000 Galician “imports” laboured in the Ukraine, and their number increased monthly.

Yet, the Galician-invented “govirku” (“speech” in the Galician dialect) had little in common with the people’s native dialects; no one knew it, and most refused to learn it. In 1925, the fifth anniversary of Ukrainisation, the Kiev Obkom of the Communist Party (Bolshevik) noted that despite the broad state support for Ukrainisation, 25 percent “absolutely didn’t know it” 30 percent “know almost nothing”, 30.5 percent “know little”, and only 14.5 percent were “more or less knowledgeable”. S A Yefremov noted, “Jews took Ukrainisation the most seriously. Indeed, over the last six months they’ve learnt the most”. Both Little Russians and Great Russians strongly opposed Ukrainisation; they didn’t want to teach “ridnoi movi” (Galician dialect for “native language”). Given the high percentage of Jews in the Ukraine then, we can assume that most of those 14.5 percent who were more or less competent in Ukrainian were Jews, not Little or Great Russians, the intended “beneficiaries” of “Mova” (Galician dialect equivalent of the Russian язык (yazyk: language)).

“Mova” was an artificial development; it was an anti-Russian language, with a maximum replacement of traditional folk Russian words with Polish, German, Galician dialect, or simply concocted equivalents. The main point was that it wasn’t Standard Russian. They constantly tinkered with it, they repeatedly altered words, since the creators of this “language” wanted to take it as far from Russian as they could. For example, take «местоимение» (mestoimenie: pronoun”); in turn, they changed it to «мiстоименния», «мiстойменник», «заiименник», and «займенник». Where it was impossible to come up with something by ad-libbing, they took any foreign word that they could. For example, «вертолёт» (vertolyot: helicopter), according to native derivation (“vertical flyer”), became in Mova (as in modern English), «геликоптер» (“geliokopter”) and «запятая» (zapyataya: comma) became «кома» (“koma”) {which means “clod” in real Russian… what a buncha maroons!: editor}.

The result is gibberish, which angered even one of the original leading lights of the Mova movement, Ivan Semyonovich Nechui-Levitsky, who went into opposition to Ukrainisation, saying 1912, “in trying to get something really far away from Russian, they came up with something that’s far away from real spoken Ukrainian”, he proposed to create a new national vernacular based on Podneprsky (“By the Dnepr”) dialects. If you look at The Tale of Bygone Years and The Lay of the Host of Igor, one realises that they’re in an archaic language, not modern Ukrainian or Russian, although they came from what’s now the Ukraine. Indeed, they help us to realise how artificial modern “ridnoi movi” is. Again, if you read the Chronicle of What I Saw, by a contemporary and possible associate of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, you won’t find “ridnoi movi” there either.

However, what best describes Mova’s artificiality is familiarity with the language of the Lemkos, the westernmost people in the Russian World. The land of the Lemkos… Lemkovina… around the ancient Russian city of Peremishlya (now Przemyśl in Podkarpackie Voivodeship in the Polish Republic). Lemko historian Fr Ioann Polyansky (1888-1972, literary pseudonym “Lemkin”) wrote about the Lemko language, “The Lemko nationality belongs to the great Russian-Slavic motherland. The name ‘Rus’ was for them the eternal holy embodiment of the ​​Slavic ideal, it always laid in their hearts. They call themselves Rusin, Russian, Rusnyak, and Lemko… although in later times, our Lemkos sometimes used the term “Ukrainian” to name their nationality, yet, simultaneously, they kept their earlier orientation. Bear in mind that Lemkos use different terms due to political conditions, they’re not all from our soil”.

Another brilliant Lemko, Dmitri Vislotsky (1888-1968, literary pseudonym “Vanyo Gunyanka”), wrote in his primer on his tongue, “The Russian People consists of Great Russians and Little Russians, along with Ukrainians, Belarusians, and Lemkos. At base, Little Russians and Ukrainians are similar to Great Russians; the differences are more in the nature of discrete accents on the same theme. Belarusians and Lemkos also developed out of the same Russian root. In our Lemko language, some words are the same in Russian, but aren’t similar to modern Ukrainian. Modern Ukrainians forgot their links with Great Russians and Belarusians. That means our Lemko people are part of the one Russian People. We have words in common with Russian, but not with Slovak and Polish”. The truth, expressed in the placid, sonorous, and ancient Russian mother-language!

The widespread dissemination of the “Ukrainian” language led to creating ideological justifications for it… a separatist alternative anti-Russian history… full of lies about its alleged separate existence from the Russian people. Anyone even slightly familiar with the history of our people say that the “ridnoi movi” language and history are nonsense… however, not only Austria-Hungary and pre-war Poland maintained and supported this twaddle with much funding, but also the early USSR, and, after 1991, the chimerical Ukrainian pseudo-state. This drivel generates conclusions… the building of a stable Ukrainian state is impossible if there’s a strong Russian state, and one can’t build a stable Ukrainian state unless one infects the Russian World with the cancer of anti-Russian Ukrainianism. After all, it’s obvious that after it took root in Galicia, the “Ukrainian” language seeks to win the central, eastern, and southern regions, and if it settles there, then, the turn will come of the Kuban and Stavropol, where there was Ukrainisation until 1930, then, the fanatics would target Kursk, Voronezh, Belgorod, and Bryansk Oblasts, etc., etc. This anti-Russian cancer will metastasise until it infects the entire Russian World, unless we destroy, finally, the demonic “Ukrainian” project.

After all, the fruits of Ukrainianism are obvious… genocide of Russians in Galicia during World War I by Austria-Hungary, open and unbridled harassment of Russians in Galicia and in the Ukrainian SSR before the VOV, numerous Hitlerite Ukrainian auxiliary police battalions, which ran rampant in the Ukraine and Belarus during the VOV. For instance, it’s no secret the Germans didn’t destroy Khatyn; Ukrainian collaborators of the 118 Police Battalion under Vasili Meleshko did the dirty deed. The Germans just encircled the area in a cordon; the details came out only because a teenager survived due to “laying doggo”. The Ukrainians drove all the inhabitants into a barn, set it on fire, then, fired into the building with a machine gun, and finished off all those women and children who managed to escape from the blaze with rifle fire. In contrast to the German fascists, the Ukrainians showed no mercy. Reputedly, Vladimir Shcherbitsky, the First Secretary of the KPU, begged on his knees to all the other Politburo members not to tell this terrible truth about the Ukrainians. The Soviets caught only one of these Ukrainian “heroes” of Khatyn; they condemned him in a closed court session. However, today, a museum in Chernovtsy glorifies the fiends of the 118 Battalion as heroes of the Ukraine.

Today, the Banderovtsy are again temporarily victorious in the Ukraine; we have a very tough fight ahead of us. However, if we want to win with the least amount of casualties, we need to be clear about one thing. There aren’t three fraternal peoples; there’s only one indivisible Russian nation, part of which was long under Polish Catholic rule, thereby acquiring some borrowed differences in customs and language, which, nevertheless, divide us much less than Bavarians, Saxons, and Prussians in Germany, or Provençals, Picardians, and Parisians in France. Therefore, now, it’s necessary to carry out a resolute policy of de-Ukrainisation in Little Russia, along with a vigorous anti-Banderovtsy campaign. At the same time, we shouldn’t forget about Belarus, where today some forces want to separate them artificially from the Russian World.

Remember the efficacious treatment that we handed out to the Banderovtsy the first time around, it was swift and potent Russian medicine… the NKVD swept in and grabbed them, they had quick and resolute trials, leading to their breathing in the fresh frosty air in the vast Siberian expanses and in the Russian Far East… places that were glad to accept healthy energetic young people. Yep… there are plenty of places to send ‘em… Yaytsenyuk and Yarosh, Muzichko and Lyashko, Klichko and all the other Banderovtsy scumbags. There’s no other way out for us anymore… otherwise, the Ukrainian bacilli will infect the Russian World with its cancerous metastasis, self-destructing it like a PVO SAM that’s flown off-course.

00 Ukrainian junta mansions 05. 02.03.14

Yatsenuk’s mansion in Kiev… only 100 metres (330 feet) from Yanukovich’s … the darkened pot (Yatsenyuk) dares to call the kettle (Yanukovich) black. With such brass and chutzpah, Yatsenyuk will do well on Wall Street when Russia exiles him (truly, the wisest course… see below).

______________________________

Editor:

It’s clear what Russia has to do. It must show compassion and attentiveness to the mass of ordinary folk in the Ukraine; they’ve suffered quite enough over the past 23 years, compounded by the recent misrule of the junta. As for the Banderovtsy, there are two choices, neither of them nice nor without backlash.

Firstly, one could shot the scumbags out of hand… that seems neat and quick, but that brings several problems in its wake. It’d make Russia an international pariah in the West, something that it doesn’t need now (the American “sanctions” didn’t gain much cred… if Russia plays its cards right, it’ll have little effect in most of Europe). Besides which, it’d cause all sort of internal problems, not the least of which would creating “martyrs” for the Ukie nationalists.

Therefore, since the Rodina has to rid itself of these monsters, the only way out is to exile them in perpetuity. Yes… they’d make much noise in the USA and Canada; they’d reinforce the Galician diaspora and radicalise it. However, that wouldn’t create martyrs and Langley would soon tire of supporting them. A few oligarchs and political scumbags have money in foreign parts… Darlin’ Yuliya would sup with Mary Lou Whitney during the Saratoga season. A few others would ingratiate themselves with Langley… Tyagnibok has no scruples; he’d probably end as a CIA hitman (with a modest bungalow in the Virginia ‘burbs). Yatsenyuk would go to work for a Wall Street firm and succeed… his greedster skills would be in demand (he’d have a McMansion in Syosset). Klichko has the greatest probability ending up dead… he’s a political naïf, and some Right Sector bastard would grease him for his gold jewellery. Most of the rest would end washing dishes at Veselka’s on Tenth and Second, or pouring drafts at the Blue and Gold.

Oh, yes… John McCain would hold congressional hearings on “Who lost the Ukraine” (as though it was the USA’s to lose in the first place). The wisest thing to do in that case is to say nothing. Sergei Viktorovich should light up another Marlboro and strum his guitar. It’s nothing to get in a wrangle about.

I want to emphasise to all of you… this situation is far from over, and the intel is far from clear, especially, in junta-controlled areas. No one knows yet what next week will bring, let alone next month. NO ONE KNOWS, especially, not the fatuous talking heads in the Western media. I’ll confide that not even VVP has righteous intel… this is a massive cow pie stinkin’ to high heaven… and VVP doesn’t want to step in it unless he must. However, I think that, in the end, VVP will win through, and Obama & Co will face a feast with a gigantic shit sandwich as the featured entrée (will Nuland get le sabot? We’ll have to watch that one).

May this end soon… the people of Little Russia have suffered enough misrule for ten nations…

History Repeats Itself: Russia Faces Off with Nazis in the Ukraine

00 Pavel Sokolov-Skalia. The Mother of All Russian Cities... Kiev is Free! 1943

The Mother of All Russian Cities… Kiev is Free! 

Pavel Sokolov-Skalia

1943

Shall we have to liberate Kiev once again from the Nazis? 

______________________________

With ultra-nationalism and anti-Jewish sentiment rife in the Western Ukraine, it looks like history is repeating itself, this time with the West trying to pit the Ukraine against Russia, just as it did back in the days when Nazism was on the rise in Germany. In the 1930s, the Third Reich was all the rage in Europe and in the USA, with the Anglo-American élites pinning their hopes on Hitler, who they believed could end the Soviet menace. They reviled Russia… but not Nazi Germany. In fact, American corporations and banks supported and financed the Nazis, whilst their officials and businesses respected the Nazi régime. Mackenzie King, the union-busting advisor of the Rockefeller family and tenth prime minister of Canada, even admired Hitler openly, as did Edward VIII, who abdicated from the British throne in favour of his brother. However, of course, the goal was to get Berlin and Moscow to destroy one another. Washington used this same strategy against Baghdad and Tehran when it encouraged Saddam Hussein to attack Iran and launch the Iran-Iraq War.

Now, the West compares President Putin with Adolf Hitler, with Hillary Clinton and Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird drawing parallels between the supposed deployment of Russian troops in the Crimea and the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. The propaganda war is in full swing as the media are doing their best to demonise Russians and to pave the way for the USA’s long-term objective of isolating and neutralising Russia as an international rival and Eurasian actor. They turn the truth on its head. Now, they vilify the heirs of the Soviets, who defeated the Nazis and liberated Europe at a great price, whilst fascist forces and Western militarism are on the march again. Nevertheless, the neoliberals and organised capital stand behind the fascists; they really pull the strings, just as they did before World War II.

It should come as no surprise that Arseny Yatsenyuk, the Wall Street-supported coup-imposed “Prime Minister” of the Ukraine, collaborates with ultra-nationalist admirers of Nazi collaborators in the Ukraine. In a twist of fate, Russia again stands against a fledgling Nazi state. The events in the Ukraine are not just mere media spin… they have deep links to the past and to the future. George Orwell said the following about the discursive process tied to the way that we frame history, “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past”. As it was in the Western Ukraine that collaborated with the Nazis in the Second World War, extreme Russophobic neofascists overrun Kiev, manipulated by the USA and the EU in trying to bring down Russia.
