______________________________

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…

Wry Observations from Ivan Ignatyevich Nikitchuk… Do Pass the Jug, It’s GOOD STUFF

Gran’pa, what’s a “legitimate democracy?”

Stary Mudry:

That’s any government that kisses up to the USA.

******

The Rada adopted the IMF’s conditions for a loan… they’d put the people on bread and water. However, they’re going to do it gradually… at first, the people will get only water…

******

When the West complains of Russia’s intractable behaviour, always remember a letter from the wife of a German soldier, found on his corpse by Red Army fighters in 1942, “Russian stubbornness and dishonesty really ticks off everybody in Hamburg; they won’t stop their stupid and pointless resistance”.

******

If local cadres can manage to work things out in the end, then, why can’t whole states solve the world’s problems?

******

Ivan Ignatyevich has it right… the USA IS too full of itself (especially, that fatuous and self-important scumbag McFaul), the junta doesn’t give two hoots in hell for the Ukrainian Joe Bloggs, the West truly expects us to roll over and ENJOY being gang-raped, and since people normally CAN solve their local problems, then, why can’t we apply the same principles to world peace?

Hat tip to Ivan Ignatyevich and the KPRF… there’s still sanity in these here parts…

8 March 2014. Here’s What One of My Ukie Nationalist Opponents Said… Crazy World Ain’t It (Do Pass the Jug)?

Death to the Fascist Scum!

The whole concert is 35 minutes… listen to the first song, if nothing else… something POSITIVE from our Russian civilisation. THIS is what the Ukie nationalist fanatics oppose, by the way. 

______________________________

One of the Cabinet passed it on to me… it’s a comment on some of my work by a Ukie nationalist fanatic in Poland:

Uroczysty polsko-ukraiński chuj wam w dupę!

In English, in means:

A festive Polish-Ukrainian fuck you up the ass!

We shouldn’t get angry over such! It does show you the level that most Ukie nationalists operate at. What’s becoming obvious is that Comrade Zyuganov is right… actually, the conflict in the Ukraine is a classic Marxist class war, with nationalist overtones to be sure, but it’s mostly a class war… the oligarchs are trying to seize power, to hand the Ukraine over for brutal rape by the likes of Warren Buffet and Willy Romney. The Western media and government sources focus on the nationalist aspect to blind you to the fact that Western crapitalism will profit immensely if the Timoshenko junta wins. Note well that one of the first actions of the junta was to appoint oligarchs as governors… then, it cut pensions by 50 PERCENT. If that doesn’t show you the evil behind the junta, nothing will. However, the junta is dependent on fascist elements for “muscle” as it disbanded security elements and it doesn’t trust the army (after all, it appointed “morale instructors”… commissars in all but name). This is good… as the fascist elements (and the oligarch bands of the governors) lack discipline and training. Putting someone in a uniform doesn’t make them a soldier… giving someone a weapon and a uniform makes them thugs, not policemen. The order of law lies trampled… for now, the oligarchs and the nationalists are allies… but how long will this unnatural marriage last?

To return to my critic… hey, the world is what it is. You don’t bother me (or my friends). Pass the jug and cheer, for as Bob Czech put it so many moons ago, “They wouldn’t be hollering if the harpoon hadn’t sunk deep”. Keep it focused… DO NOT HATE… Satan wins, then. However, you can stand tall and FIGHT BACK. Keep on keepin’ on, kids… it ain’t over, and the worst is yet to come…
