9 November 2011. Carpatho-Russia… The IGNORED Minority of Mitteleuropa… WHY?

******

The arms of Carpatho-Russia, the forgotten minority of Mitteleuropa… the American rightwing ignores them… the Galician Uniates repress them… Russia supports them… what does that tell you?

******

******

The time has come to cross our Rubicon and say openly so that everyone can hear it… we can’t be separated by a Chinese wall from our brothers, and we can’t stand apart from our linguistic, ecclesiastical, and national connection with the entire Russian world!

Fr Ivan Naumovich (1825-91)

Carpatho-Russian Russophile

******

We aren’t Transnistria, we aren’t Georgia, we’re a distinct people, and we’d hope that the Ukrainians would give us a divorce in a peaceful way, like the Czechs and the Slovaks did.

Fr Dmitri Sidor (1955- )

Head of the Carpatho-Russian Parliament

Orthodox Confessor of Transcarpathia

******

The American government and media agonised over supposed human rights violations in Russia, China, and Iran. Yet, they’re silent about Ukrainian repression of Carpatho-Russian national aspirations. The American media didn’t tell you how the CIA-trained stooges of Yushchenko savagely beat Fr Dmitri Sidor… or how Langley’s Galician Uniate hirelings attack Carpatho-Russian nationhood… just as the Galician Uniate leadership (I don’t mean rank n’ filers here… they’re innocent) and their Vatican puppeteers suppress the history of the Habsburg concentration camp at Talerhof (denying the murder of Carpatho-Russian Russophiles there). The people who identify as “Carpatho-Russian” are usually our Orthodox co-religionists; those who call themselves “Rusyns” usually turn out as Uniates. That tells us, as Orthodox Christians, which side to favour… after all, those who call themselves “Rusyns” also call themselves “Byzantine Catholics“… and “Byzantine” is a noxious 16th century papal neologism for “New Roman”. Let’s extend our hands in aid to our Orthodox kin “from beyond the hills”… let’s give the toe of our boot to the pretensions of the Uniates. ‘Nuff said!
