“The Bandershtadt Must be Destroyed”

00 The Ukraine. map. 27.02.15

______________________________

I’ll express my thoughts on this subject very strongly and sharply… the Ukraine isn’t only good for nothing… it has no right to exist as an independent nation-state! In ancient times, the Eastern Slavs inhabited the forest-steppe zone; later on, they moved to the Eastern European part of Russia… Little Russia was the native homeland of the Eastern Slavs. In those days, the Cimmerians dominated the southern steppes. If you fast-forward to the 18th century, the victories of Suvorov and Potemkin joined the Crimean Tatars to the realm of Yekaterina Velikaya. The Historical Ukraine is the so-called Hetmanate. Let me remind you that remote areas with some degree of autonomy in Old Russia were called “Ukraina”. There were several, there was a “Ukraina” in the Trans-Baikal. The reason was simple… this area had only one road around the lake linking it. Cities located near Pskov were called the “German Ukraina”, as Pskov bordered on the lands of the Teutonic Order. The land around Oki, which was only wilderness in those days, was called the “Polish Ukraina”. In St Petersburg, Okhta was called the “Petersburg Ukraina” until the construction of the Okhtinsky Bridge in the early 20th century. Even before the founding of the city of Okhta, Finnish fisherfolk lived in the area.

I mention these historical examples to make it clear that “Ukraina” meant “the borderlands”, so, one can see that the so-called “Ukrainian project” was crank from its very outset. All lands dominated by Catholics underwent gradual Polonisation… the Poles didn’t win over the people in the Ukraine nor Belarus nor Lithuania, but there was a betrayal by the ruling élite… Orthodox boyars changed their faith and national identity. This was the main difference between Malorossiya and Great Russia. Nevertheless, the Great Russian élite (nobility and the KPSS nomenklatura) has always been patriotic, despite some scoundrels. In the Ukraine, historical tradition records the betrayal of the élites. During the Cossack uprising there was a territory called the Hetmanate… a small strip along the left bank of the Dnepr, with some self-government. Ukrainian historians allege that it was a proto-Ukrainian state in a treaty relationship with Moscow. However, bear in mind that an autocracy, by definition, can’t limit itself, to make others coevals. Autocracy is unlike a constitutional monarchy, which recognises agreements on limitation. What existed along the left bank of the Dnepr wasn’t a state; rather, it was an autonomous area devoid of serfdom, which disappeared due to the Khmelnitsky Uprising. The Cossack elders ruled this autonomy, headed by a hetman chosen for life, who, in turn, bowed to the Russian Tsar. This was the so-called primordial Ukraine. Where Kharkov now stands, was the Sloboda (Sloboda Ukraina (“Free”Ukraine”)), which didn’t really have a government, the steppe-land south of the former wild fields only had active settlement in the 16th and 17th centuries. Then, there was the Polish Partitions; in contrast to the left-bank Ukraine, where there was no Polish nobility, on the right bank, they survived until 1917… and in Volynia until 1939… such noble families as the Potocki, Ganski, Luck, Brezhinski (heh,heh,heh) etc.

On the left bank, the only thing one could say of the Ukrainian élite was that it was deceitful. During the reign of Tsar Pyotr Veliki, the Hetmanate became a centralised military régime. Local elders, descendants of Cossack atamans and captains, longed to become nobles. For many years, they pleaded to have the same rights as the rest of the Russian nobility, which automatically would give them the right to own serfs. Finally, upon the request of these local nobles, Yekaterina Velikaya abolished freedom and introduced serfdom. She hadn’t wanted to do this for some time, because it’d harm her reputation as an enlightened sovereign. Yekaterina invited German colonists to come to Russia, hoping that they’d show the benefits of free peasant labour through their example, but she had to deal with the Cossack elders. Thus, the descendants of wild and free Cossacks became commonplace landlords. Think of N V  Gogol’s heroes… the landlords Pererepenko and Dovgochkhuna. These names came from the descendants of glorious Cossacks, and Nikolai Vasilyevich was one of this nobility.

In tsarist times, the Poles remained as the nobility on the right bank. At the same time, the tsars conquered Novorossiya, which didn’t have even indirect ties to the Hetmanate. Thus, we can see that the “Ukraine” was a heterogeneous structure, which evolved somewhat separately from Russia. The Ukrainian movement was a construct of the Poles, as a part if their project to dominate the area. There seemed to be an insurmountable challenge in front of them… how do we get the people of the borderland to fight for Poland? The Ukrainian ideology posits a slave happy to be in bondage to his Polish master. The Ukrainian ideal is to split from Russia, to become a favourite slave of the Poles or Germans, or, at worst, a hireling of the EU. Unfortunately, only psychology or psychiatry can explain this phenomenon. One can hope that, eventually, prudent Ukrainians would come to their senses. However, I fear that the process of sobering up will be long. For instance, a recent Ukrainian opinion poll showed that the majority of Ukrainians favour continuing the war, although they recognise that a civil war would have no winners. Aboriginal lands can’t be by definition “Ukraina”, since a “Ukraina” is a “borderland”. It’s pointless to hope that if the Donbass were to leave the Ukraine, if all of Novorossiya were to return to Russia, then, you could easily make friends with the rest of the country. The very essence of the “Ukrainian project” is to harm Russia. To paraphrase a famous saying of the Roman senator Cato, “The Bandershtadt must be destroyed”.

Stratfor Chock Fulla Shit… Predicts a Russian Collapse

00 sleeping bear. 24.02.15

The Bear is sleeping… I’d recommend the asshats at Stratfor to shut the fuck up. Bears don’t like being poked at, dontcha know…

______________________________

Read this. Read it? Read it all? What arrant bullshit… it’s bollocks on stilts! Barron’s called Stratfor the “shadow CIA”… that shows you how intelligent the average “conservative” is… the GOP isn’t the “Stupid Party” for nought! Stratfor only has 75 to 200 employees max… it’s no intelligence agency, it’s a commercial security firm that sells crank predictions at 40K per annum. Only asshats on the level of Ted Cruz, John McCain, and Rod Dreher take it seriously. However, it’s useful… it’s what the Anglo American toddlers want in the world. They want to rip apart Russia, destroy Orthodoxy, and replace it with their godless Sectarian twaddle. Stratfor is utter nonsense, not worthy of a lengthy refutation. However, “conservatives” slobber over its vacuities. I’ll only say this… Russians survived the 900 Days… they’ll survive whatever the bratty Amerikantsy toddlers toss at them. Trust me on that…

One last thing… this has all the marks of something “run up by the apprentice whilst the blacksmith was out”. The American hegemonic project is going into the shitter big-time… Stratfor is one of its shameless whores. Ergo, this “report”… I don’t think that it’s going to stop the collapse of the “Ukraine” nor stop the Sino-Russian alliance (which scares the shits out of the Amerikantsy juveniles). Read Stratfor in the light of those facts…

23 February 2015. Defenders of the Fatherland Day… THIS is Why the Republican Filth Will NOT Overwhelm Holy Rus

Look at the above images… the first is a mother blessing her sons to go off to the VOV. This painting is from the late Soviet time… it portrays an overtly religious action without censorship. The second shows opolchenietsy getting ready to march in the defence of Moscow in 1941. Yevgeni Zakharovich was a VOV vet, so, he knew the score (he’s the sort of person spat on by the pro-American/papist junta). Let’s not play about… the point is that Western neoliberal greedsters want to destroy Holy Rus, so that they can rape it for their profit. The worst are found in the US Republican Party… the worst amongst them is Ted Cruz. If you recall, this strutting godless sectarian spat on Arab religious leaders, including Orthodox hierarchs. He had no shame… in fact, he boasted of it and tried to make US look bad. He’s one of the most obscene warmongers in Washington. He calls himself a “Christian”… he lies. There are Orthodox who defend this pig, who defend the Republican Party. Here’s the moral dilemma… if you support Republicans for their supposed “Pro-Life” stance (actually, it’s anti-abortion, not pro-life, but there’s no space for that argument here), you support those who hate our Holy Faith, who want to rape our Holy Motherland, who want to export their demonic neoliberalism and their false sectarianism. There’s no getting around it. Even without bringing anything else into it, we must know the Republican Party hates Holy Rus and wants to destroy it. They set their Uniate and schismatical attack dogs on Holy Rus. Turdchinov, one of the worst of the junta, is a sectarian apostate.

Orthodox Christians… you have a choice. You may stand for Holy Rus or you may stand for the Demonic Republican agenda. There are no other options for us. You MUST choose. I’ve chosen, I don’t think that it’s a secret where I stand. WHERE DO YOU STAND? This is a full-blown moral dilemma… people like Rod Dreher who make it into cartoonish simplistic twaddle do us no favours. There’s NO “totally pure” option, yet, we must choose one or the other imperfect alternative. That’s the way of it in life… those who say otherwise are juvenile simpletons.

We stand at a crossroads…

6 February 2015. “That’s REALLY Ukrainian”… I Think NOT

01f Borshch

Borshch is found throughout all northeastern Europe… Poles eat it… Russians eat it… Swedes and Finns eat it… Germans eat it (they call it Beetenbarsch)… Magyars eat it… Rusins, Czechs, and Slovaks eat it… even Romanians eat it. That’s because the beet grows well in our climate, Einstein! It’s NOT a Ukrainian invention. No way… no how…

******

I was reading an interesting post in the Forward on the drink schlab/schlav. It got me thinking of the over-the-top boasting of Galicians… either they invented everything or that this-or-that is “really Ukrainian”… those dirty ol’ Moskals and Polacks stole it. That’s crackbrained… for the record, I find the efforts of some Russians to claim that they invented everything just as bizarre and juvenile. Mind you, that doesn’t mean that A S Popov didn’t invent the wireless before Marconi did or that Yu A Gagarin wasn’t the first man in outer space… it does mean that the Wright brothers invented the first practical aeroplane, Richard Trevithick did build the first practical steam locomotive, Thomas Edison did invent the lightbulb, and that Karl Benz did make the first practical automobile. That’s one reason that I reject all “Ukrainian” claims out-of-hand. They’re prone to making absurd inflated statements… therefore, their boasting that they’ve defeated Russian forces in the field (which are better trained and equipped than the untrained neofascist Galician Uniate rabble in Novorossiya is) is ludicrous. After all, they’ve claimed for years that they “invented” borshch, when the evidence shows that it arose in many places at roughly the same time. The same is true of pisanki… decorated eggs (the Russian literally means “written on”)… they came about in many places at the same time, the designs are due to the limitations of the medium used.

Have a care with juvenile boasters… hmm… that means that one should have a care with Anglo Americans! They shout about how “exceptional” they are… yet, their history is full of exploitation, violence, bloodshed, and outright theft, more so than most other peoples, I’m afraid. No wonder they love the Galician Uniates and coddle them. Like calls unto like… shitbirds of a feather DO flock together…
