Patriarch Kirill: Our Soldiers Believed in the Sanctity of Their Motherland

00 remember and mourn 01. 240615

THIS was the podvig* of the Soviet soldiers… of all nationalities, all social classes, all faiths, all places, and all races… they defeated a racist monstrosity… which rears its head again today, sadly enough. Fascism walks the earth again… thanks to people such as George W Bush and Hillary Clinton… reflect on that.

Ayusheyev killed 25 German soldiers and officers in the battle, but died in action before the end of the fighting.

______________________________

More than once, I found myself wondering what motivated the Soviet soldiers, whose podvigs, self-sacrifice, and ruthless denial-of-self amazed both friend and foe alike? I have only one answer… they believed in the legitimacy of the Russian people. Our soldiers believed in Russia, in Rus, in the sanctity of their motherland and native soil. For that, not only were they willing to persevere, to suffer, and to shed their blood, they were ready to give their very lives. They had a deep, often unconscious, belief that the Russian Way, the Russian culture, had a right to live, that it had meaning even for those outside of their tradition. The Russian warriors who gave their lives in that terrible war felt that our people have something to say to the whole world. Therefore, if someone destroyed or enslaved our people… that would be an even greater disaster than the war itself. Today, we must often ask ourselves… what would we give our lives for? What is our message to the world? Or, are we just consumers of novel foods, high-tech gadgetry, and vacuous entertainment? Today, do we believe in spiritual, cultural, and national consistency? Can we still perform podvigs; can we reach beyond the empty posturing in the media? Today, what can we say that we’d give our lives for? These aren’t idle questions. Our future depends on how we answer them.

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

26 June 2015. Heroes of Holy Rus: Major General S A Kovpak, Hero of the VOV

00 S A Kovpak. Soviet partisan leader. 260615

______________________________

This is why Novorossiya will NOT fall to the “Ukrainians”… this is its true legacy. S A Kovpak fought the fascists… both the Nazi occupiers and their UPA quisling running dogs. He saved THOUSANDS from murder at the hands of the Galician Uniate nationalists. Besides his two Gold Stars of the Hero of the Soviet Union, he held four Orders of Lenin, the Order of the Red Banner, the Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky (I Class), and the Order of Suvorov (I Class).

You may honour heroes of the Motherland such as S A Kovpak or you may honour traitors to the Motherland such as S A Bandera or P N Krasnov. They’re mutually exclusive. By the way, the Council of Atamans of the Donsky Voiska refused to support the rehabilitation of Krasnov; RF Gosduma Deputy (and Don Cossack Ataman) V P Vodolatsky said, “The fact of his collaboration with Hitler during the war makes any idea of his rehabilitation absolutely unacceptable to us”. In 2008, the Russian government ordered the removal of a “memorial” to Krasnov on the grounds that it glorified fascism (a wise and good decision). You may stand with the truthful Donsky Cossacks or you may stand with the liar Victor Potapov… it’s up to you.

“As you know, an army is a tool of war. It exists to do armed struggle against the Motherland’s enemies, and if you want to fight in it, firstly, you should prepare yourself by learning tactics. Otherwise, you’ll have to learn it all at the front, incurring unnecessary losses”. G K Zhukov

People’s Artist* of the USSR V S Lanovoi donated a memorial to four-times Hero of the Soviet Union Marshal G K Zhukov to Lugansk. The dedication of the monument took place today, the 70th anniversary of the first victory parade, in the courtyard of School Nr 36. Filipp Kobtsev and Stanislav Kirillyakin, activists from the Impuls youth organisation came up with the idea to erect this monument, they went to Lanovoi, who heads the board of the project “Alley of Russian Glory”. Kobtsev said, “During the auto-parade ‘Great Victory’, which we took part in as LNR representatives, we asked Lanovoi, in his capacity as head of ‘Alley of Russian Glory’ to establish a monument in Lugansk. After that, we got in touch with LNR Chairman Plotnitsky, and after negotiations and preparatory work, today, we put up a bust of Marshal [Zhukov] in Lugansk. We’d like to note the large contribution made to this by M L Serdyukov {no relation to the more famous Serdyukovs who were Minster of Defence and Governor of St Petersburg: editor}. With support from the Lugansk GMA* and the World of Lugansk NGO, we erected this monument in the courtyard of School nr 36″.

  • Peoples Artist: award of distinction for an actor, dancer, singer, or musician… “artists” in the Western sense are “Peoples Painters” or “Peoples Sculptors”
  • GMA: State Municipal Administration, administrative apparat of a city

The solemn event brought together public activists from all over Lugansk, city residents (especially, from Zhukov Quarter), high school students, and central and local politicians, including Manolis Pilavov, the Lugansk GMA head. Pilavov said, “Today, it’s symbolic that we come together here in the Zhukov Quarter to dedicate a monument to the Marshal of Victory, G K Zhukov. Troops under his command liberated our motherland. I thank the Impuls group and the ‘Alley of Russian Glory’ for doing everything possible to make possible this ceremony today”. Pilavov presented the library of School nr 36 with three volumes of G K Zhukov’s memoirs.

For his part, Aleksei Karyakin, Chairman of the LNR Peoples Soviet, told the crowd that there were parallels between the events of over 70 years ago and what’s happening now, “Today we stand at the threshold of deterring a fascism that once seemed defeated, but which nevertheless rose again. When Georgi Konstantinovich came to the front, all the soldiers knew… ‘We’re going on the offensive and we’re going to win’. So, I’m sure that with the unveiling of a monument to this wonderful man in our town, why, victory is just around the corner”.

Editor:

Lanovoi’s involvement in this is IMPORTANT… so important that it merits a post of its own. He’s a patriot who’s always stayed true to his Motherland, to his values and standards, and to communism (he’s always been an upfront KPRF man). A certain loudmouth priest attacked I V Stalin on the ROCOR official website. I’d reply that the Church served Pannikhida by G K Zhukov’s resting place in the Kremlin Wall. I stand with the REAL Church, not the phonies who whore for the American government. As I say, the Lanovoi connection is crucial… when you see the image that I’m going to post, you’ll see it… in an instant.

VVP tossed down the gauntlet to the Anglo toddlers and is making common cause with the commies. Perhaps, that’s why their “Ukrainian” project is going down the shitter!

OFFICIAL Chairman of the DNR Government A V Zakharchenko on the Day of Memory and Mourning

00 A V Zakharchenko 220615

____________________________

OFFICIAL

Dear citizens of the Donetsk Peoples Republic!

Dear compatriots!

Today, 22 June, the Day of Memory and Grief, we pay tribute to the victims of the Great Patriotic War and remember the worst day in history our people… the beginning of a bloody war that claimed the lives of millions of our mothers and fathers. It was truly a holy war; our ancestors defended their land, their families, their culture, and their language, and the right of their children to a free and happy life. Yes, we won that war, but the Great Victory came at a price, and its bitter losses are still a stinging pain in our hearts. However, the memory of the unprecedented courage, heroism, and fortitude of our people inspires our generation to podvigs* and heroic deeds in our time. Yes, it’s sad to say, but we face aggressors in our land again, and again they shed innocent blood. Fascism has risen up again, and now the grandchildren of the glorious victors stand up to bar the way to the brown menace*. Today, we mourn the dead, but we know that our people are invincible. Like 70 years ago, we stand up to cleanse the foe from our land.  Just like 70 years ago… Victory will be ours!

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.
  • Brown menace: Nazis/fascists, from “brownshirt”, a member of the Nazi SA paramilitary group
