13 January 2018. V V Putin on Russians and “Ukrainians”

________________________

The post-1991 “Ukraine” is a fictive and notional entity with no real existence in the real world. The Soviets merged three very different major regions… Malorossiya, Novorossiya, and Galicia into a fanciful “Ukrainian SSR”. This is not to mention the Crimea, which was never “Ukrainian” at all, but was only made part of the Ukrainian SSR in 1954 by the drunkard Khrushchyov. Another region with a separate and distinct history is Podkarpatskaya Krai… which never was part of Galicia or Little Russia (it was part of Hungary, not Austria, in the Dual Monarchy; it was never under Polish occupation, as were Galicia and Malorossiya). There’s no unified “Ukrainian” nationality nor is there a “Ukrainian” language… the modern construct called “Ukrainian” comes from the Galician subdialect, which is a creole mixing elements of Polish and Russian. Most people in Malorossiya speak Surzhik, a dialect that mixes Russian and “Ukrainian” elements… it’s distinct from so-called “Ukrainian”. In Novorossiya and the Crimea, the language is Russian, and that’s that. That’s why the Crimea and Novorossiya were strongholds of the Party of Regions prior to the coup, as they opposed Ukrainian Nationalism and Galician cultural imperialism. Rusins have their own dialect (distinct from that of Galicia) written in the Latin, not the Cyrillic, alphabet.

In short, there’s no “Ukrainian” language or people per se. “Ukrainian” isn’t a nationality… it’s an ideology… a vicious fascist ideology of the most feral sort. The world will be safer when it breathes its last. By the way… “Ukrainians” would revert to what they truly are… Great Russians, Little Russians, and Galicians (along with Rusins in Podkarpatskaya Krai and some Tatars in the Crimea). They’d be what they always were… separate and distinct peoples, worthy of respect and dignity.

4 June 2017. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words… Rusins are NOT “Ukrainians”… Never Were, Aren’t, and Never Will Be

________________________

The American/Galician Uniate occupation of Podkarpatskaya Krai isn’t going unopposed. Draft dodging is well-nigh universal, and if the voenkom is mostly locals, it’s never reported. The people still reject schismatic Ukrop “Orthodoxy” and Galician Uniatism. Just because the mainstream media isn’t reporting this story doesn’t mean that it isn’t true. Rusins aren’t boastful and loud liars like the Galician Uniate nationalists. They’re a quiet folk, but all the more resolute for that…
