2 August 2014. They Weren’t “Ukrainians” Then… They’re NOT “Ukrainians” Now

The word “Ukrainian” wasn’t in common usage in 1844 (of course, Uniate fanatics dig up and quote isolated and atypical instances of “Ukrainian”, but they don’t count)… in short, the concept didn’t exist in general circulation! To use the word “Ukrainian” for any situation or person prior to the late 19th century is an ignorant and obsequious anachronism, adopted to please and/or placate a loud political pressure group. It’s not truthful, so, decent people should avoid such a usage. In fact, until 1948, there was no “Ukrainian Catholic rite” in Roman documents… it was the “Ritus Rutheniensis”, that is, “the Russian (Catholic) Rite”. I got that from a 1948 official Roman publication that I saw in Dunwoodie in the 70s. Don’t fall for the loud Uniate propaganda… it doesn’t correspond to the facts… that goes for such things as the so-called 1930s “Genocide” as well (there was none… the UN and PACE agree with the Russian position that it wasn’t genocide, it was part of the tragedy surrounding Collectivisation). You should know that the Uniate fascists weren’t part of all that… they were in Poland, and none of them suffered one bit… indeed, they were willing hangsmen and bully boys for the White Poles (they burned Orthodox churches in the Kresy at the behest of the Poles… fancy that)! Do remember that when you hear their rants and accusations…

My thanks to the Cabinet member who turned me on to this resource.

This is an Oldie n’ Goodie… “Ukrainianism”… an Old School Metropolia Definition

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Talerhof. They all had faces... 2012



I don’t have either a URL or a title for the book that this came from. It’s from one of the Cabinet, and I thank them heartily for this. If you suck up to Uniates, you spit on the legacy the original immigrants fought for… full stop. The Uniates are the enemies of the Church, whether they realise it or not. The Unia is the Roman Curia’s Trojan Horse against Orthodoxy. We forget that at our peril. It’s time to “go back to the future”…



“Ukrainianism” is a senseless political invention imposed on the Little Russians of Galicia by the Austro-Polish-German politicians in cooperation with Archbishop Sheptitsky, the Metropolitan of the Uniate Church in Galicia. The German government of Galicia, seeing that the Galician Russians, in their national and cultural aspects, form one whole with the Russian people in Russia, took fright and began to have recourse to crafty “divide et impera” (divide and rule) and to violence, so that they might separate Galician Russians from Russian people in Russia, so that it might be easier to denationalise them. They forbade Galician Russians to call themselves Russians. Following Roman papist politicians, they imposed not only “Ruthenianism” upon them, but also “Ukrainianism”.

During the Austrian national census, they counted the Russian population in official statistics as “Ruthenians” and “Ukrainians”, they arrested and threw into prison anyone protested this official chicanery. Furthermore, they forbade the Russian population to learn the formal Russian literary language. The authorities fostered “Ukrainianism” for two purposes:

  1. To detach Little Russians outside of Russia from Russians in Russia
  2. To create through them a “Republic of Ukraina” from Russian Little Russia, composed of southern and southwestern Russian provinces, thus, weakening the Great Russian Empire both politically and Nationally

To make this “divide et impera” feasible amongst Galician Little Russians, Metropolitan Sheptitsky turned his ecclesiastical seminaries into political camps where he would Jesuitise all future clerics, to instruct them in the science of political propaganda, to spread “Ukrainianism” amongst Galician Little Russians. With particular cruelty, the Austrian rulers persecuted those Russians in Galicia who dedicated themselves totally to their nation and people, those who had exceptional respect, attention, and love from the ordinary people. The Austrians lodged many charges of treason against leading Galician Russians. For instance:

  1. The trial of Priest Ivan Naumovich and his colleagues in Lvov in 1882
  2. The trial of Kabalyuk and 94 peasants in Máramarossziget (Marmaroschsiget) in Carpatho-Russia in 1913
  3. The trial of the Gerovsky brothers (and here) in Czernowitz (Chernovtsy) in Bukovina in 1913
  4. The trial of Priests Sandovich and Gudima, along with the teachers Bendasyuk and Koldra in 1913

These are only episodes in the unequal battle for freedom carried on by the Russian people of Carpatho-Russia against their oppressors.

The Austrians subjected the Carpatho-Russian people to cruel persecutions, not only for their political aspirations, but also for their religious convictions. The Austrian authorities sentenced Carpatho-Russian peasants to many years of imprisonment (i.e. in Máramarossziget (Marmaroschsiget)), just because they didn’t want to be in Union with the Pope of Rome. In Galicia, the Austrian officials closed an Orthodox chapel, placing a placard on it forbidding anyone to enter. They claimed that it was because of contagious disease, which, of course, was untrue.

If the condition of the Russian people in enslaved Galician Russia was unbearable in peacetime, how dreadful were they at the beginning of the last war {World War I: editor}? As soon as Austria-Hungary declared war on Russia, they arrested more than 30,000 Russian people in Galicia, Bukovina, and Hungary, Austrian police and soldiers massacred them and subjected them to indescribable torture, throwing them into prison camps in Talerhof, Terezín (Theresienstadt), Kufstein, Spielberg, Arad, Vienna, Linz, etc. in Talerhof alone, in the course of a few weeks, more than 1,500 Russians died from beatings, disease, and hunger. The Austrians placed the survivors on trial. Although all of them were innocent according to both man’s law and God’s Law, the Austrian courts found them guilty, just because they were of the Russian nationality. The Austrians shot many of them (the first being the Rev Maksim Sandovich), putting them to death. During the first nine months of the Great War, the Germans and Magyars shot and hanged 20,000 people in Galicia, Bukovina, and Carpatho-Russia.



If you’re in the OCA and you support the junta pigs (or you claim to be neutral), you spit on the podvig of your great-grandparents. They died precisely because they confessed Orthodoxy and they confessed their Russian nationality. You shouldn’t listen to konvertsy fools like Hatfield, you shouldn’t listen to semi-Uniates like Dahulich and Jillions, nor should you listen to sellouts like Lyonyo Kishkovsky and Thomas Hopko. The old ways ARE the good ways… that’s what Orthodoxy is all about. Mistrust all clergy who wear “Greek” vestments in the Uniate style… they not only spit on our God-blessed traditions, they spit on the confession of Holy Orthodoxy that their forebears fought and died for. Don’t forget… the Jesuits at Fordham educated Dahulich (coincidentally, he’s the biggest advocate of spitting on our traditions and adopting Uniate ways)… fancy that. So was Hopko, for that matter. Jillions worked for the Uniates… do you see a pattern here? You may follow the fearless confession of Ss Maksim Sandovich and Aleksei Kabalyuk, Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik, and Fr Mikhail Shuvar… or you may follow the spineless surrender to the Unia of Hopko, Lyonyo, Jillions, and Dahulich… it’s up to you.

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!

25 June 2014. Four Maps to Help You Understand Why “The Ukraine” is the Most Disgusting Fiction of Our Time

00 ukraine map 04. 11.06.14


Our first map shows the election results of 2010. You can see the clear divide in the country. This isn’t only a political divide… some of the other maps will show it as well, but all the areas that went for Yanukovich were predominantly Russian-speaking. Only the dark blue areas speak “Ukrainian” (actually, the heavily-Polonised Lvov dialect). The light blue areas (except the isolated region in the southwest, which speaks Rusin) are Surzhik-speaking. The Galician Uniates hate Surzhik and count its speakers as “Ukrainian-speakers”, even though this dialect is closer to Russian than it is to the semi-Polish Lvov mishmash. The Galicians also hate the Rusins and claim that they’re “Ukrainian” and that there’s no such thing as Rusins. In short, there are four linguistic-cultural areas, there is no united “Ukraine”… that’s a Galician Uniate fairy tale (they call it “Consciousness”… I call it “The Galician Narrative”. Now, let’s look at a language map.


00 ukraine map 03. 11.06.14


Mirabile dictu! Russian predominates in Novorossiya! Another Galician Uniate canard bites the dust… there’s more to come, kids. The dark orange area is the “Surzhik heartland” of Malorossiya (Little Russia). Unlike the Lvovshchina, it didn’t suffer from Habsburg misrule… so, it’s far less Polonised and not Uniate at all. Let’s move on…


00 ukraine map 02. 11.06.14


We’re staying with language for the time being. NO Euromaidantsy terrorist filth arose in Russian-speaking areas. NONE. Mobs didn’t seize government buildings except in Galician dialect areas. Then, why did such violence erupt in Kiev? Firstly, as the capital of a centralised state, it attracted enough Galician Uniates to disrupt the equilibrium. Secondly, for 18 years(1992-2010), the state favoured Uniates and schismatic “Orthodox” and put legal barriers in front of the real canonical Orthodox, so, there was disproportionately more Uniates and schismatics in Kiev. Besides this, what few pro-Western Surzhik people there were, are found in Kiev… these people were mostly Western-educated, so, they’d been bowled over by the West (much like some of the Bolotnaya Square pukes in Russia). They bussed in most of the Euromaidantsy from Galicia (where did they did get the money for that? If you said the US Embassy, you might be right). Another reason for choosing Kiev is that’s where the Western media was… so, they brought in the mobs in from other parts. Let’s look at our last map…


00 ukraine map 01. 11.06.14


NONE of the areas that voted for Yanukovich had Euromaidantsy filth and outrages. NONE. Therefore, the Western-fomented coup had four main props:

  1. The Galician Uniates saw their power grab stymied by V F Yanukovich… they especially didn’t like his cracking down on their proselytisation of Orthodox. They HATED his granting of equal rights to the canonical Church. They also didn’t like his supporting the rights of Russian and Surzhik speakers over the Galician hillbilly pidgin-speaking minority.
  2. The schismatical Orthodox saw their position threatened by V F Yanukovich’s support of the canonical Church… that is, there was no more government favour for those who worshipped at schismatical temples. Their very existence was at stake.
  3. The oligarchs and political class didn’t like V F Yanukovich as he was more honest than they were, and that cramped their style. Yes, V F Yanukovich was corrupt… very much so. However, he was LESS corrupt than Yatsenyuk, Kolomoisky, and Turchinov were (let alone Darlin’ Yuliya the landshark, who’s in a class by herself).
  4. To provide “muscle” for the coup, the plotters enlisted the violent Galician Uniate Hard Right (a subset of the Galician Uniates, they’re the worst of a rather sorry crew).

I know that’s not the Western media narrative, but it’s the truth, and it’s why the present civil war is so bitter. It’s a war between rival nationalities, rival religions, rival cultures, and rival political ideologies. It’s as if the Democrats and Republicans had AKs and were going at each other. However, the greatest falsehood is on the side of the Uniates, and they’re the engine behind the junta. They see their last chance to “convert” the Ukraine going up in smoke, so, they’re using all means, including the foulest ones, to get Novorossiya back into their clutches. The locals resist that, and they’re fighting the only war worth fighting, defending hearth, home, and family from aggressor beasts bent on murder and rapine.

You can support the Uniate opium dream or you can back Orthodox sanity. By the way, the Uniates suck up to the oligarchs and crawl on their bellies to the West, the Orthodox set up the People’s Republics and stand tall with Russia… one of these things is NOT like the other! The Orthodox honour the VOV vets, the Red banner, and the Soviet legacy… the Uniates glorify Nazi collaborators, tear down monuments to heroes, and erect statues of terrorists. Those are the choices on offer… there are no others.
