The Torez Polygon* hosted the first-ever competition between DNR tankcrew of different units, ending in victory for the crews of the 3 Gorlovsky Motorised Rife Brigade. The winning team led throughout the three stages of the competition. They scored the highest in firing main-guns at targets and at destroying enemy helicopters at long-range. A DNR Minoborony staffer said, “The 3 Rifle Brigade team gave the best results in all phases of competition… overcoming conventional minefields, firing main-guns and machine guns, and overcoming obstacles and scarp (fortifications)”. Second place went to the Uman Separate Battalion and third place went to the Slavyansk Separate Motorised Rifle Brigade. Other participants were the 5 Donetsk Brigade, 100 Republican Guard Brigade, 9 Mariupol-Khingan and 11 Yenakiyevo-Dunai Motorised Rifle Regiments, and the Donetsk Higher Military Command School. Colonel Arkady Fedoseyev, Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, said, “The competitions of our DNR tankcrew were successful. We were able to confirm that the level of training of our troops met expected standards”. The judges will award the best tank commander, best driver-mechanic, and best gunner prizes later.

  • Polygon: Russian colloquialism for a military base, due to polygonal concrete blocks on the drill ground and airfields

Several hundred spectators came out for the final stage of the competition, despite the terakt* that occurred at the beginning of the competition. High government officials came to show their support for the troops, including DNR Minister of Defence Major General Vladimir Kononov, DNR First Deputy Defence Minister Major General Sergei Velikorodny, DNR Minister of Communications Viktor Yatsenko, DNR Minister of Culture Aleksandr Paretsky, along with many others. Yatsenko said, “Today, we don’t just support those competing on the obstacle course, but we’re also checking how well they receive and carry out orders. We found some problems, but we eliminated them as soon as we could”. To ensure the safety of all concerned, DNR police, military police, EOD* crews, and spetsnaz soldiers were on the scene. Besides this, firefighters, rescue workers, and ambulance crews were on duty. Security carefully inspected the cars, personal belongings, and documents of visitors. After the competition proper, vocal and dance groups gave performances, along with demonstrations by sports teams. Paretsky said, “About 100 members of different ensembles arrived today to take part in the final concert. This is a great opportunity to raise the cultural and aesthetic level of our region, and, of course, to inspire our warriors to future victories”.

  • EOD: Explosives Ordnance Disposal, the bubbas who remove and defuse bombs and other such fun stuff

4 October 2015. A Thought from Elder Nikolai Guryanov

00 zyuganov and patr kirill guryanov 041015


In Russia, the commies came to repentance. They showed that repentance in a solid way by their defence of the canonical Church against American-financed and –fomented mobs in the Nasty Nineties (sadly, Victor Potapov, in particular, defended the American assault on the Church and established anti-canonical factions in the homeland). The Komsomoltsy stood tall to defend our church buildings, our clergy, our bishops (“The Komsomoltsy were real muscle men… but they treated the elderly bishop with respect and always asked his blessing”), our sacred things, our believers, and the Canonical Church in general. That wiped away the sin of the Persecution.

Sadly, some of our people in the diaspora refused to accept this (some, like Victor Potapov, James Jatras, and Alexander Webster, aided the American persecutors of Holy Rus actively and enthusiastically)… today, some of them still attack Communists and socialism (as many come of families well-off under the Ancien Régime). Odd… they didn’t scruple at coöperation with Nazi murderers and American Republican greedsters… ravening enemies of Holy Rus!

Just as the Church gladly accepted repentance from the commies (G A Zyuganov and HH are personal friends, by the way), we should accept repentance from those in the diaspora who defend amoral neoliberalism (mislabeled “conservatism” in the Anglosphere) at present. However… they must repent of their sin and do so publicly, through their actions. Until Potapov, Paffhausen, Webster, Dreher, et al repent of their support for the US Republican Party (and its evil “Me First” Money First Anti-Life Anti-Family agenda) and repent of their attacks on socialism and the Soviet era, no Christian should take them at face value. When they do… we should treat them as the Church treated the commies… as long-lost family gladly brought back into the domestic circle. Sadly, they haven’t come to that point, yet. One hopes that they shall…
