Tales on the Post-Soviet Margins

00 The Face of the Euromaidantsy. 25.06.14


There isn’t a “brotherly people” in the Ukraine… definitely not. We can say that there is and isn’t a Ukraine, in the sense of state-political terms, it’s all rather murky. The Old Russian word “oukraina” originally applied to different borderlands of Rus and other ancient Russian principalities. This word first appeared in chronicles in 1187. Its present state-political overtones only appeared in the 20th century, in a completely artificial way. In fact, the territory that today we call the “Ukraine” brings together three… at least… very different areas: Novorossiya, Malorossiya, and Galicia (Zapadenshchiny). Different peoples live in these areas:

1. Fascists-Banderovtsy, Uniate heretics and pathological Russophobes 

Descendants of traitors and apostates, it’s been a treacherous race since the time of Daniil of Galicia, who betrayed Orthodoxy in the 13th century in the vain hope of Vatican protection. The papists bestowed upon him the title of “Daniil King of the Russians” (“Daniel Ruthenorum Rex”) for his apostasy. They are unequivocal “anti-Russians” (although their blood-lines are mostly Russian), deliberately fostered by Europe for many centuries as a weapon to combat the Russian people and state. However, within Europe, they were always second-class citizens and never had equal political rights with the leading nationalities of the states in which they lived (e.g., Austria-Hungary). Therefore, they have a massive inferiority complex, a fierce hatred of Russia and Russians, and low intellectual and cultural levels, which leads to an inability to adapt to the modern high-tech world. In short, they’re dolts. At most, they’re no more than 10-20 percent of the population in the modern “Ukraine”. At first, their settlements were mainly in far western areas, but after the collapse of the USSR, many of them flocked to Kiev. They almost entirely seized the so-called “creative professions” {with the aid of American money and diaspora Galician activists… they lacked the means, both financial and intellectual, to do otherwise: editor} and ousted all who disagreed with them from the “Ukrainian intelligentsia”. Today, they hold key positions in the political life of the country.

2. Little Russians

These are members of the Little Russian branch of the Russian people; they live mostly in the central part of today’s “Ukraine” and make up 40-45 percent of its current population. In the 20th century, the communists taught them to consider themselves as part of a non-existent “Ukrainian” nationality, albeit with the caveat that they were a “brotherly people”. The communists instilled the same ideology of the “brotherly peoples” in the minds of Russians living in Russia. This ideology still exists today. As a result, the obvious fact that there’s no such thing as “Ukrainians”, but only the Little Russian branch of the one Russian people, has pretty much disappeared, and only the present civil war in the “Ukraine” once again brought this issue forward to politicians and the media. By religion, most of them are Orthodox, but influenced by the anti-Russian orgy of recent decades, many spun off into the schismatical “Kiev Patriarchate” and dream of creating a “Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church” independent from Moscow.

3. Great Russians

Russians per se, who see themselves as Great Russians; mainly, they’re Orthodox under the Moscow Patriarchate. This is what they always believed and this is what they believe now.  Mostly, they’re in the southeast “Ukraine”, in Novorossiya (we’re excepting the Crimea, as that’s no longer relevant). They’re 40-45 percent of the “Ukrainian” population. Today, they’re the main opponents of the Neo-Nazi Banderovtsy junta occupying Kiev.

What follows from this? Here’s what:

Stop lying about a “brotherly people!” Such people simply don’t exist! Many are our enemies… we Russians agree with the Galicians on nothing, and we never shall. With such foes, you can only talk the language of force. You must speak with cannon and machine-guns… they’re able to understand that… anything else is useless and pointless. That’s especially true today, as the entire West backs them. The prospect of Malorossiya and Novorossiya reuniting with Russia terrifies the West… for that would mean the revival of the Russian Empire in its historical geopolitical form. The Galician anti-Russian pogrom in the “Ukraine” after the collapse of the USSR terribly ravaged Little Russia. However, in spite of everything, there remain pockets of true Orthodox Faith, and this would be the main foundation for any future recovery and revival of Russian Malorossiya. Russia should show leniency and patience, and the Russian Church and the Russian society should do as much as they can as quickly as possible to liberate the minds of Little Russians from the disastrous “Ukrainian” myth, as it’s an external fable, a foreign infection imported by our foreign enemies. Finally, Novorossiya… it’s simple and clear. It’s part of Russia, inhabited by Russian people, and there isn’t any ambiguity or misunderstanding on that. The top military and political leadership in the Kremlin must address the practical matter of reunification according to the current geopolitical, economic, and military-strategic situation. Therefore, what some erroneously call the “Ukraine” is mostly a Russian land inhabited by Russian people. Thus, its proper place is within Russia, the historical state of the Russian people. Certainly, that’s where we want to be!
