Ukrainians Can’t Have the Cake and Eat it Too

I have noticed profound confusion in Ukrainian narratives, and you may have read many posts on this blog, where I discuss them…

Let’s start:

1) The Ukrainian nation is a modern nation, created on the basis of a vernacular language that developed in the East European plain through the contact of Old Russian peasants with their Polish overlords. 40% of Ukrainian are borrowings from Polish. It is precisely this centuries long estrangement from the rest of Russia that gave rise to the ideas of a separate Ukrainian nation.

Well, if Ukraine is based on a culture created by centuries of Polish rule, why then would the Ukrainians claim the legacy of Old Rus’. I get it, the true history of Modern Ukraine is the history of enserfed peasants, and there isn’t much to say about the place after the Old Rus’ perished in the flames of the Mongol invasion.

Ukraine is the only country of the East Slavs that does not contain in its name a reference to Rus’. Belarus and the Russian Federation do. Mind you, “Russia” is the hellenized form of the word Rus’ that entered World languages, and retrospectively the Russian language in the time of the Romanovs. I bet the Zmahars (Belorussian nationalists) would have changed the country’s name if a suitable nomenclature was current there.

So, if Ukraine on one hand is the rejection of Rus’, and commonality with Russia and Belarus. How then can Ukraine claim to be the sole proprietor of the Rus’ legacy? Ukrainian officials even make rather uniformed statements that the Russians, of the Russian Federation have somehow usurped the label Rus’.

2) Russian gas is very dirty, said Zelensky on one of his recent visits to the United States but Gazprom must continue pumping that gas to Europe because Ukraine needs the money. For many years, Ukraine was buying Russian gas through Slovakia which was several times more expensive than if it was bought directly from Russia. The Ukrainian population is feeling this independence from Russia every time they have to pay the bills.

3) Ukrainian officials speak of an ongoing war with the Russian Federation but neither is there an official declaration of war, there isn’t even a conflict going on Russian borders.

Ukraine signed the Minsk Accords but would not implement them in any form because then they would have to acknowledge that the Donbas is an internal Ukrainian conflict.

4) Speaking of Donbas and Crimea, the Ukrainians have for a long time used the question: “Whose is Crimea?” as a way to determine a friend or foe. But Crimea is a testament to the formation of the Ukrainian state.

You see, the country named Ukraine was entirely created by the Bolsheviks. The anti-Tsarist forces in the Russian Empire in the nineteenth century were very fond on the budding Ukrainian nationalists. Ukrainian nationalism in the late nineteenth century was very much intertwined with the ideas of social justice, it was about the emancipation of the downtrodden peasants, and naturally these ideas found favour with the Bolsheviks, and it was the Bolsheviks, who played the decisive role in the formation of Ukrainian state as we know it.

It was through the decision of Lenin that the Donbas became Ukraine. Stalin annexed the Western part of Ukraine from Poland and Czechoslovakia, and Khrushchev gave Ukraine Crimea. When Ukraine gained its independence in 1991, instead of trying to accommodate the people in the disparate lands they were given, the successive Ukrainian governments have embarked on a program of imposing what arguably is a West Ukrainian culture on the whole of the country.

The West Ukrainians have the desirable quality of being the most distant from the Russians but they also have a seething hatred towards the Bolsheviks that they view as occupiers. Stalin does not get any props for uniting Halychyna with the rest of Ukraine.

It is rather ironic that when the Ukrainian nationalists began toppling the statues of Lenin around Ukraine, Crimea and the Donbas seceded. You simply cannot deny the genesis of Ukraine in the USSR through the good will of Soviet leaders. The West Ukrainian nationalists have never fought for this territory, they haven’t spent a single bullet for this territory, they have inherited it from the Soviets.

Naturally then, if they want to claim this territory, they have to fight over it. But at present, Kiev finds the guts only to fight the separatists in the East, and therefore de facto, Crimea is Russia.

Recently, Russian rapper Morgenshtern, who arguably promotes a rather degenerate culture of American rappers but is actually smarter than he appears, said in an interview with the Ukrainian TV host, Dmytro Gordon that Crimea belongs to the Crimeans, and basically only the people of Crimea can decide which country they want to belong to.

5) Ukrainian officials claim they are defending Europe from the invasion of Russians from the East. They are probably trying to elicit the help of the countries to the West of their borders, who are no less sick with Russophobia than they are. However, do they not realize that their most immediate Western allies are in no position to help them militarily. The guarantors of the Minsk accords are France and Germany, not Poland and the Czech Republic. Moscow does not consider the latter as equal partners.

Ukrainian Officials Have Gone Completely Bonkers on Identity Politics

Top Ukrainian officials allowed themselves displays of Svidomism that is scarcely fathomable…

First Alexey Arestovych said Ukraine should undergo a rebranding to Rus’-Ukraine to take the brand of Russians from Russia. I really wonder, what is wrong with Ukraine?

Mind you, the name Ukraine is rather modern too. It only gained circulation in the early 20th century. In a sense, back then the lands that are now Ukraine have undergone a rebranding. However, instead of being honest about their history, that is that the Ukraine is a result of emancipation of the creole culture created there through centuries of Polish rule, the Ukrainian nationalists such as the historian, Mikhailo Hrushevsky, who to my knowledge coined the hybrid term “Rus’-Ukraine”, began to usurp the rights to Old Rus’.

When it comes to Rus’, it was established by Swedish Vikings that were initially based in the north, in areas that are today part of the Russian Federation. Vladimir came to Kiev from the north, from Novgorod. The Ukrainians act as if the Russians have somehow stollen the rights to call themselves Russians.

From RT (hat tip: AK):

Alexey Arestovich, who works as the spokesman for Kiev’s delegation to the contact group on Donbass, claimed that Ukrainians are actually the real Russians.

Arestovych is a strange character. He was a blogger and a pick up artist before representing Ukraine in Minsk. But if a comedian can be a president, then all things are possible. Just do not expect anything highly intellectual from them.

Alexey Danilov, the head of the national security council, suggested to write the Ukrainian language in the Latin Script. This is utterly cargo cultish. Actually, the Cyrillic script is native to Slavs, and the switch to Latin script was always done when the German and Latin influence became dominant. In a sense, it would be a rejection of the Rus’ identity. The Cyrillic is a fusion of Greek and Glagolitic made specifically for Slavic languages. I am not certain such an initiative would be something Ukraine needs, it would create more problems than solve whatever the objectives this initiative has.

These initiatives from rather top Ukrainian officials are somewhere out of the realm of the absurd and betray an identity crisis in Ukraine. I have a solution, Kiev is the mother of all Russian cities and the Ukrainians are nothing but rebranded Russians, whose regional identity was used to manipulate them. However, as long as the Ukrainians continue to claim legacy of the Rus’, they cannot go against that legacy.

Collapsed Flag Pole Crushes Ukrainian Official’s Lexus

For a while, cities in Ukraine were installing these ginormous Ukrainian flags. This is especially done in eastern cities. This totemic erection is called to demonstrate that here is Ukraine. Often the price tag for these flag poles is highly elevated. The officials usually scoop up the difference in price.

I guess that’s where the Lexus came from:

This happened in Kherson…

Ukraine’s Problem is That the Taliban Seized Power There Already in 2014

Ukraine’s problem is that the Taliban seized power there already in 2014. Village boys, conservative and archaic have to come the city and seized it.

After that, they received guns and went on to fight against other cities.

We were living under a Taliban for the last 7 years.

Translated from here. Meanwhile, there is jubilation in Azov over the Taliban victory…

Fake War and Fake Outrage

Dear readers, there was a moral panic in Ukraine…

Over the above photo, where the Ukrainian athlete, Yaroslava Maguchikh poses with her Russian competitor, Maria Lasitskene. Lasitskene won gold and Maguchikh won bronze.

After this photo, there was an outrage among the Svidomites in Ukraine. How dare Moguchikh pose with he Russian competitor to whom she can probably speak without a problem? We have a war with Russia and this is unacceptable.

You cannot blame athletes for not assuming the politically correct attitude towards Russia, when Ukraine is not at war with Russia officially. So while we have even members of the parliament expressing their indignation at the photo shoot, these very same members of parliament never passed a vote officially declaring a war on Russia.

Russia remains Ukraine’s single biggest trading partner, although after 2014, the EU as a whole surpassed Russia in trade volume. As a single country, Russia has the biggest volume of trade with Ukraine out of all the countries in the World.

I personally think that the Ukrainian politics are simply hype, and full of lies. The Ukrainian public is being lied to about a war with Russia, about defense of the Russian language. Politicians particularly use the latter before elections. However, being lackeys of Murica, the Ukrainian politicians become Russophobes while in office.

You can still see old videos of Oleksiy Honcharenko or even the president, Volodymyr Zelensky defending the Russian language. Zelensky in office continues with the policy of discrimination against the Russian language and Honcharenko has supported the Maidan in the wake of the coup.

The Russians do not engage the civil society in Ukraine because Russia has never been welcome there, and local politicians are highly untrustworthy.

The Former Culture Minister of Belarus Stages a Screaming Protest With Topless Ukrainian Mingers

Why does it not surprise me that a former minister that supported Belomaidan is a pervert?

The above sharade was staged by Pavel Latushko.

Pavel Latushko is a former minister of culture, former theatre director, and now he is dwelling in Poland in exile. According to the recent interview with Roman Protasevych, he lives in a 3000 euro apartment.

The Pyrrhic Victory of Svidomites Over Netfix Zrada

For Svidomites and Zrada, please consult my Glossary of Terms.

It looks like svidomites have won from Netflix a change of subtitles at the film Brat 2. Now instead of “Ukrainian Nazi Collaborator” it says “Banderite”. But is this a peremoha? While the Western audience does understand a little about Nazi collaboration, it may use Google to find out what Banderite is. They will find Wikipedia

The term derives from the name of Stepan Bandera (1909-1959), head of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists that formed in 1929 as an amalgamation of movements including the Union of Ukrainian Fascists.[1][2] The union, known as OUN-B, had been engaged in various atrocities, including murder of civilians, most of whom were ethnic Poles. This was the result of the organization’s extreme Polonophobia, but the victims also included other minorities such as the Jews and Romani people.[3][4] The term “Banderites” was used by the Bandera followers themselves, by others during the Holocaust, and during the massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia by OUN-UPA from 1943–1944. These massacres resulted in the deaths of 80,000-100,000 Poles and 10,000-15,000 Ukrainians.[5]

And here dear readers is how a peremoha slowly turns into zrada…

What do you Want From Biden?

Dear readers, what a text I have discovered, it almost confirms the message of one of the videos I uploaded to my YouTube channel recently, (check it out if you have a command of Russian and Ukrainian)…

A Ukrainian [person]: My relative lives in the Urals, Russia. And he asks: “What do you want from America and Biden?! I thought a bit and replied…

  1. I want American military bases on Russian borders. In Lugansk, in Donetsk, in Sevastopol, and in Simferopol. That the US 6th fleet may feel at home.
  2. That the strategic aviation may fly, bombers, fighters, tankers… And that the AWACS may fly over and shit on the heads of enemies.
  3. That US nuclear weapons and the boot of the NATO soldier, to the maximum level, so that Putin may shit himself from the anxiety.
  4. That our military may learn from their military, for a fully fledged alliance and bubble gum. You do not have to fight for us, we can fight already. For us, with us does not matter. We need to become frightening so that one would piss himself just from seeing us.
  5. We need Murican judiciary because our judiciary is comatose.
  6. Also, customs and fiscal policy should be transplanted because ours is comatose.
  7. May American capital enter and with their capitalists, managers, technicians. I have worked with Westerners and I have worked with compatriots. I will say, the Americans, the British, the Canadians are welcome. And our pseudo-proletarian dung should learn from them. Blablala…

I hope dear readers, that you liked this little translation. And would you like to defend Ukraine?

How the Union Leads to Ruin in Ukraine

The Uniate Church and the Ruin are two concepts from Little Russian history that inform the Ukrainian reality of today…

From the olden days, the Holy See in Rome sought to conquer the Holy Rus’. Alexander Nevsky had to repel an invasion of the Teutonic Knights but there was a much more fearsome foe than the knights, the Rzeczpospolita, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Both constitutive realms of this empire began expanding their domains into Rus’ already in the fourteenth century with the seizure of Halychyna by the Kingdom of Poland. Coincidently, a gene test my brother did shows we are descended from the Lithuanians that conquered Rus’ and there is family legend about a “Polish” ancestry on my Russian side.

There was a difference in faith, while the Westerners answered to the Pope, Rus’ answered to the Eastern Churches and eventually, Moscow became free of Constantinople following the Ottoman conquest, and the only rightful spiritual authority in Rus’. Fearing this Muscovite influence, the Polish masters of Ukraine decided to bring the Orthodox Churches under Roman Catholic control. In 1595 at the Union of Brest, the bishops of Little and White Russia under Rzeczpospolita accepted Roman domination. Several decades have passed and a rebellion erupted in Little Russia, which saw the Cossacks swear fealty to the Russian Tsar. This has plunged Ukraine into a destructive period known as the Ruin, which resolved itself really only in the eighteenth century with the Russian Empire coming to dominate the entirety of Little Russia, and the neutralisation of the Rzeczpospolita.

But unfortunately, the Russian Empire failed to take Halychyna in the division of Poland. Halychyna, or Galicia as it is also known, is a part of Rus. West of Lvov, there lies a town called Rava Rus’ka, that’s where Rus’ begins and it goes all the way to Vladivostok. Halychyna fell under the Austrian rule, and the Uniate Church survived there. This later served as the nucleus out of which will rise Ukrainian nationalism. Starting in the second half of the nineteenth century, the Austria-Hungary, as the Habsburg realms came to be known, entered into alliance with the German Empire, the Russian Empire joined France in an Entente. The Habsburgs became enemies of Russia.

Maxim Sandovych

Austria was faced with a problem of Russians on its territory. The Austrians viewed so called Russophillism of many of the inhabitants of Halychyna with suspicion. Thousands of people from Halychyna made annual pilgrimage to the Pochayevskaya Lavra, an Orthodox monastery right across the border from Austrian Halychyna in the Russian Empire. The Austrian authorities began repressing the local Russophiles. Maxim Sandovych, an Orthodox covert from the Uniate Church was tortured to death by the Austrian authorities prior to the First World War. After the Russian defeat by the Central Powers in 1915, the Austrians have interned the Russian population in concentration camps in Terezín in Bohemia, and in Thalerhof in Styria. Wikipedia has this to say about Thalerhof:

The Austro-Hungarian authorities imprisoned leaders of the Russophilism movement among the Carpatho-RusynsLemkos, and Galicians; those who recognized the Russian language as the literary standard form of their own Slavic dialects and had sympathy for the Russian Empire. Thus, the captives were forced to abandon their identity as Russians and obtain a Ukrainian identity. Captives who identified themselves as Ukrainians were freed from the camp.

Terezín became the site of a genocide again during WWII, when the Jews were interned there.

Simultaneously with the repression, the Austrians have supported a development of a Ukrainian identity that would be different from Russian. Remember dear readers, national identities are always imposed from above and people can always be reprogrammed. Polish nobility long toyed with the Ukrainian idea. According to Mikhail Onufrienko, a blogger from Kharkov that now lives in Crimea in exile, the idea to rename the South Western part of Rus’ into Ukraine originated already in the sixteenth century with the Jesuit envoy, Antonio Possevino. Part of the reason the Polish rebellions against Russian rule of the nineteenth century failed was because the Russian peasants didn’t go along with their Polish masters. Many of these Poles and early adepts of the Ukrainian national idea fled to Austrian Halychyna, where they continued their work with Austrian support.

A good example of the Austrian support for Ukrainian nationalism is Mikhailo Hrushevsky, who was given a cushy job of a professor in Lvov and a hefty grant to write Ukrainian history, a historical conception that removes Ukraine from the common Russian history. If you were to write the true history of Ukraine, you would have to start with Nikolay Kostomarov, Ivan Franko, the afore mentioned Hrushevsky, and not somewhere deep in the past, like in the Cossack period. The Cossacks referred to themselves as Russians. I would not even speak much about Shevchenko, who also identified as Russian. But Hrushevsky did just that, relabelled them all as Ukrainians. I call the conception that Ukraine emerged out of Ukrainian nationalism, which was heavily supported by the enemies of Russia, “a short history of Ukraine.”

By the First World War, there was a sizeable community of newly created Ukrainians in Halychyna. The first time the nationality “Ukrainian” appeared officially was in 1916, when the future Emperor Charles I inspected the troops in Halychyna, and declared everyone in the camp to be Ukrainian. After the revolution in Russia, the Communists, who were opposed to Russian nationalism made the decision to break down the Russian nation by employing the Austrian project, and began a programme of mass creating the Ukrainians. For this purpose, they brought many teachers from Halychyna, including the aforementioned Mikhailo Hrushevsky. Russia’s Ukrainian headache is a bolshevik legacy.

Early Ukrainian nationalism was very much centred around the Uniate Church, the Austrians viewed the papists as loyal citizens. Ukrainism was therefore an extension of the previous Union, the Union of Brest. In more recent times an idea of a united Europe appeared, and since the 1990s, the European Union is bringing these ideas into reality. But parallel with the European Union that we all know from the European Parliament, and the European Commission, there is also a spiritual union and the ideological founder of European integration, the Pan-European Union.

The importance of union with Rome has slightly diminished in recent times with the decline of Catholicism and religiosity in the West, and the centre of control gravitated eventually to Brussels. However, there is a lot of “Habsburg” influence on the symbolic basis of the EU. You see, the Pan-European Union has given the European Union all of its symbols. The circle of twelve stars:

The twelve stars symbolise the twelve signs of the Zodiac, and the number 12 stands for completion and perfection. Note the Cross, as if indicating an inheritance from the Roman Catholic project. The secular EU, and the European Council of course do not have the cross in their flag. Furthermore, the anthem of the European Union, the Ode to Joy, was adopted by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in the 1970s on the suggestion made in 1955 by Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi, a son of a Bohemian Nobleman and an upperclass Japanese gaijin chaser, the founder and the first head of the Pan-European Union. Now check out the Ode to Joy on the Euromaidan, they even created new updated lyrics for it in Ukrainian. After Coudenhove-Kalergi, the head of the Pan-European Union was Otto von Habsburg.

Petr Fiala, the current head of the Czech Civic Democrats with Berndt Posselt, the current leader of the Sudetendeutsche Landsmanschaft, and Otto von Habsburg at a Pan-European meeting in Moravia. Habsburgofilia is strong for some reason in the Czech Lands.

It seems like the Austrian nobility found itself a new tool of domination. They have switched Catholicism for European integration. Ukraine suffers a new period of strife currently, Ruin 2.0, caused by a desire for another Union, as expressed in the Cargo Cult festival, the Euromaidan. Ukrainians seem again victims of some Austrian voodoo. And the EU is not even able to make Ukraine a candidate for membership.

Don’t be a cuck, don’t fall under the spell of an Austrian voodoo. Although, I have to say many adepts of Ukrainism are also adepts of another Austrian voodoo, created by the arch-opponent of Coudenhove-Kalergi.

Chechens From the Battalion of Sheikh Mansur Were Put on a List of Criminal Authorities

A small prehistory. Simulating the work of a government, the President of Ukraine, Zelensky decided to compile a list of crime bosses that the National Security Council will enact sanctions against…

Volunteer Chechens looting a store…

Fist scandals surrounding the list are beginning to come to the surface. Chechens from the battalion of Sheikh Mansur that fought in the Donbas appeared there. This army unit was wild for a long time and did not answer to civil command. Outside the warzone, they have had a number of criminal episodes.

Boryslav Bereza

I am sorry but this fucked up and zrada in one cup. And I must say this government has stepped over all red lines.

Together with human rights defenders we have dissected the list of names, allegedly being the heads of criminal organisations, and that have received sanctions from the security council and Zelensky. Well, these bastards have brought into the list Chechens that have fought on the side of Ukraine against Russian aggression. They have put them on the list to extradite them to Russia. They are already wanted by the FSB. Do you know who they are, the commander Muslim Ceberloevsky, #632 in the security council list, and the chief of staff of the Sheikh Mansur Battalion, Muslim Idrisov, whi is #646 in Zelensky’s list of people to be sanctioned. Salman Saynaroev is #650. There are other volunteer fighter, whom are wanted by the Kremlin.

Dmytro Yarosh

Dear ladies and gentlemen

Ukrainian journalists

I would like you please to share this text

I have received information that the “sanctions of the security council” have been directed against out brothers in arms from the volunteer battalion of Sheikh Mansur, our Chechnyan brothers.

I would like you to give as much hype as you can to this astounding fact!

I am suspecting, Kremlin agents that have infiltrated into the Ukrainian security forces and the government are engaged in an operation to destabilise the situation in the country with the aim to expand the area of aggression and full on invasion of Ukraine.

That why the agents of the Kremlin have inserted into the list of thiefs, bandits, anti-Ukrainian elements, people who have fought side by side with us, and walked the road of War with us in 2014, they have defended our freedom and independence.

I am warning the government: We will not allow our brothers to be extradited to the enemy…

If we are to use force to defend them, we are ready…

I am hoping on the patriotic, and pro-state opinion of the secretary of the security council and the officers of SBU and the Ministry of Interior!

Death to the Russian Federation!

Glory to Free Ichkeriya!

Glory to Ukraine!
