Vseslav Volkov: Russia not for Russians. Why Vladimir Putin is not a Nationalist
April 4, 2017


There is common inclination among the right-wingers living outside the countries of the former Soviet Union – which seems absurd for us (as
residents of countries which are firsthand familiar with Putin’s regime) – to imagine Putin’s Russia as the stronghold of “white right conservatism.” Among Putin’s “right-wing friends” in the West, there are many who, alas, went to a conscious cooperation with the Kremlin, in the hope of obtaining political or even financial dividends from it. However, we believe that the bulk of supporters of Putin and modern Russia are people who – for one reason or another – have been deprived of objective information about what is happening in this country, forced to base their assessments on Kremlin sources such as Russia Today, or judging about Russia and Putin on the basis of popular western liberal “horror stories” – giving out wishful thinking. We would like to correct this, and for this we publish a short review from our adherent, a Russian nationalist who lives in this country and has been involved in the activities of the Russian far-right movement for more than 15 years.

From the author

Dear readers! With these essay I did not set out to give you an exhaustive picture of Putinism and, in general, of modern Russia – this would require a multivolume fundamental work, supported by even more extensive quantitative research and statistical data. This is only a laconic overview, the purpose of which is to induce those of you who really are interested in Russia and its people and are not indifferent to their destiny, to get acquainted independently with numerous testimonies (which are widely available in open access) about the processes taking place in the country. To facilitate this task you can find a list of references to various sources recommended for you in the text and in the footnotes as well as at the end of the article[1] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn1) .

A wrong translation

Correct understanding of what is going on in the modern Russia implies understanding of what it does constitute. In Russian – unlike English – there is a clear linguistic division of concepts «russki» (ethnic Russian) and «rossijski» (relating to Russia as a state). At the same time, both concepts are translated into English as «Russian», but there is a great difference between them.

According to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, adopted in 1993 (shortly after the shooting of the then parliament from tanks), the state is a federation built on an ethnic basis, which is reflected in the territorial structure: of the 85 regions, 27[2] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn2) are “homelands” for ethnic minorities of Russia – thus ensuring the representation of their interests at the state level. “Own” regions are possessed by the Tatars, Chechens, Yakuts, Buryats and many other peoples of Russia.

Where, then, is the “Russian Republic” – a region representing 80% of the population of the whole country? There is no such region, there are only denationalized “krays” and “oblasts”, which are “regions for all”. Maybe there is a state body authorized to defend the rights of Russians at the federal level? Again, no. The federal government represents the interests of all citizens of Russia, regardless of nationality.
In the text of the Constitution of the Russian Federation there is not even a mention of the Russian (in the ethnic sense) people, as in any other law of the Russian Federation.

Thus, ethnic Russians (~ 80% of the country’s population) even legally do not have any relation to the Russian Federation.
In addition, unlike the numerous diasporas who are in constant contact with the Russian authorities at all levels and successfully lobby their interests, there is no one political or public organization in Russia that would officially defend the interests of the Russians as a people. Any attempts by the Russians to create such an organization are suppressed as manifestations of “extremism.”


1) The main advocate of the interests of the Jewish diaspora in Russia; 2) the newspaper of the Azerbaijani diaspora: “We are for Putin. Putin is for us “

2. Repressions against Russians

Moreover, the very formulation of the question of the rights of ethnic Russians in Russia is fraught with criminal prosecution. Vladimir Putin clearly indicated his position on the “Russian question” yet in the middle of the 2000s, calling the adherents of the slogan “Russia – for Russians”[3] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn3) “jerks and provocateurs”[4] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn4), and the struggle “with anti-Semitism, like … with any nationalism and chauvinism, – the basis of our domestic policy[5] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn5)”. In addition, such slogans as “Russian power for Russia” and even “Russian, do not drink!”, “”Russian” – means “sober”” [6] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn6) are officially considered extremist in Russia.

Thousands of Russian citizens – primarily nationalists – are in prison under “political” articles. The article 282 of the Criminal Code (“Raising hatred or enmity, as well as humiliation of human dignity”) has already become a sad symbol of Putin’s totalitarianism, uniting against itself right-wing and left-wing activists, nationalists and liberals.

Is this a mistake of the Putin system, its defect? Definitely not. In a state like Russia, nationalism is one of the mobilizing forces – the forces that can lead the population out of social “dormancy” and motivate them to political struggle for their rights. The purpose of nationalists at this stage is essentially “the emancipation of the Russian people”, which is unthinkable in the autocratic post-Soviet kleptocracy, in a system where everything is decided exclusively “from the top down”, herewith with “individual approach”, by “agreements.” If it is possible for Kremlin to “reach an agreement” with, for example, the ethnocracies of the North Caucasus (who have long recognized themselves as political actors), simply giving them the next multibillion-dollar subsidies from the dwindling Russian budget, then how to negotiate with 120 million Russians across the country? They will have to radically reorganize the entire system, and the Kremlin does not need this at all. The system is afraid to communicate with large, poorly managed masses of people – even if they demonstrate loyalty.

«Soviet Russia» is an oxymoron

With “historical Russia” – the Russian Empire – the Russian Federation also has nothing in common except the flag and the coat of arms. The RF is the official “continuer” of the USSR [7] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn7) – a country built on both worldview negation and the physical destruction of the social order that existed in Russia before 1917.

For 70 years, the Soviet system has often undergone cosmetic transformations, sometimes even borrowing elements of “past life”[8] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn8), while the real Russia was either physically destroyed (like millions of Russian peasants, officers, clergymen and intellectuals), or “squeezed” into emigration, or forced to go into deep underground. Here is an incomplete list of crimes committed by the Soviet government: the “Red Terror”, the famine of 1920-21, the genocide of the Cossacks, the repressions against the intellectuals in the late 1920s, the “collectivization” (destruction of the peasantry) and the Holodomor (which took place – in addition to Ukraine – in the Volga region and Kazakhstan), the terror of mid-late 1930s, many war crimes during the World War II, post-war repressions, the post-war famine, the testing of nuclear weapons on its own population in the 1950s, technological catastrophe in Chernobyl and many other. A lot of historical works are devoted to this topic, the most “classical” of which are the “GULAG Archipelago” by A. Solzhenitsyn and the “Black Book of Communism” by S. Courtois.

From the point of view of Russian nationalism, not unimportant is also the national composition of the top of the Bolshevik Party, the backbone of which was composed of Jews (more than half) and Caucasians [9] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn9).

The Russian resistance to Bolshevism lasted as long as Bolshevism itself:

After the October Revolution of 1917 the White Army, many times inferior to the Red forces in numbers, but a much more motivated, better-quality and better-organized, have “defended Russia from Soviet slavery for 3 years “[10] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn10);
In the interwar period in the south of Russia, in Siberia and other regions underground resistance groups acted, in Europe – Russian emigrants-anti-communists eliminated Soviet diplomats [11] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn11), carried out daring subversive attacks on Soviet territory [12] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn12), fought against the “red international” in Spain[13] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn13), the emigrant anticommunist movement embraced dozens of thousands of people on several continents – from Paris and New York to Shanghai and Harbin;
The Second World War gave the Russian people an unprecedented opportunity to crush the regime that destroyed it, but the ill-conceived and often Russophobian policy of the German leadership, and later – skilfully juggling “Russian patriotic themes” on Stalin’s part, buried this undertaking; nevertheless, according to various estimates, from 1 to 1.5 million Soviet citizens fought on the side of Germany and its allies, of which about a half were Russians, including Cossacks, traditional defense and the support of the Russian statehood (an unthinkable phenomenon in Russian history!), and in Central Russia Russian nationalists managed to create their own autonomy with a population of 581,000 people and, together with the Germans, to resist the gangs of red terrorists[14] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/792#_ftn14);

http://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/4.jpghttp://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/5.jpg http://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/7.jpghttp://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/6.png

After the war, the partisan anti-communist movement fought against the Soviet regime not only in Ukraine and Belarus, but also in the Russian republic of the USSR;
The anti-Soviet struggle was fought even by prisoners in the camps of the Gulag;
Under Khrushchev and Brezhnev, the struggle within the USSR was clearly declining, taking mainly forms of dissident clubs and youth subcultures, but the struggle of emigrants continued, and cases of their participation were known even in the war against the Soviets in Korea and Vietnam.

I allowed myself to take your time by enumerating these numerous examples so that you would understand: for a Russian nationalist they are the real Russia, unlike the USSR, her slaughterer and usurper.

For your final understanding of how – in the worldview of a Russian nationalist, the right conservative – the Soviet Union and the present-day Russia relate to each other, I cite a few quotations:

General P. Krasnov, the hero of the anti-Bolshevik resistance, the Don Ataman: “General Vrangel was not mistaken when he said “Goodbye, Motherland!” and not “Goodbye, Russia!”: Russia and the Russians sailed away with him on ships “;
Philosopher I. Ilyin: “The Soviet State is not Russia. This historical and political truth must be understood and felt once and for all and to the end “;
Writer B. Shiryaev: “The real Russian is not the Soviet, but the opposite, it is the antithesis to him”;
Writer I. Shmelev: “No foreign invasion can be worse for the Motherland than the power of Leninists and Stalinists. The USSR is definitely not Russia, but the enemy of Russia “.

Vseslav Volkov: Russia not for Russians. Why Vladimir Putin is not a Nationalist 2
April 5, 2017


4.Back to the USSR?

Thus, for Russian nationalists (if we mean exactly 1) right-wing nationalism, 2) ethnic nationalism, and not another imperial “supranational” utopia) the theme of the “red plague” is not just painful: in the question of defining “friend-or-foe”, support for the complete decommunization of Russia is one of the main criteria.

What do we see in modern Russia?

Famously, in 1991, after an unsuccessful coup attempt by a reactionary part of the Communist elite, which became the catalyst for the collapse of the Soviet system, the USSR crumbled. However, it is necessary to understand that concerning the “personnel” aspect the elite changed little in 1991 – it can be said that the Soviet nomenklatura, “repainted in new colors,” retained its political power. As for the dismantling of the communist system and its symbols, it usually happened at the will of the crowd, while the “leaders of the democratic opposition” for various reasons [1] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn1) often tried to contain these impulses (as it was, for example, with the demolition of the monument to F. Dzerzhinsky and the failed assault of the adjacent KGB headquarters)[2] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn2).

So, the new government had neither the interest nor the political will to conduct full-scale de-Sovietization, and the mood of the “masses of the people” underwent serious changes – especially after the “shock” socio-economic reforms of the early 1990s, as a result of which tens of millions of people Were below the poverty line. The vague desire for freedom was replaced by disappointment in democracy and longing for a “strong hand” and “great power”. As a result, what was not achieved in the period of “easy decommunization” in the 1990s, now is blossoming again in full bloom in Russia: finally “buried” in the official discourse are the ideas of the burial of V. Lenin mummy[3] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn3) and dismantling of his monuments, Which still stand in huge quantities in all cities of Russia (some are even being restored), in the form of Putin’s “Yunarmy”, in fact, the “pioneer organization” is being revived[4] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn4), The official mass media and school textbooks vie with each other to praise the charms of the Soviet system, and bookstores are littered with tons of waste paper telling about the “great Stalin and his wonderful reign”. The impulse, as always, comes from the very top: “The collapse of the USSR is the largest geopolitical catastrophe of the century [5] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn5)» – the statement by Vladimir Putin leaves no doubt about this.


5.The Day of Defeat

A very vivid manifestation of the cult of Soviets in Russia is the celebration of May 9 – the day of the victory of the USSR over the 3 Reich. In this war the Soviet Union lost 30 million people, left half of the country in ruins and homeless, and, most importantly, retained the power of the regime that destroyed and enslaved the population of this country before for almost a quarter of a century – i.e. not only did it not punish the Bolshevik executioners, but allowed this regime to continue to commit its terrible crimes…

What do the popular masses of the Russian Federation feel? The severity of the incurred losses? Aversion to total, fratricidal wars? The pain of the country of his grandfathers, crucified in those years between Stalin and Hitler? Reconciliation with the former “enemies” (after all, more than 70 years have passed, many generations have already changed, from those realities there is no trace)? Hate to the cannibalist regime of the Communists, which had been rotting their grandfathers and grandmothers for 25 years, and then – together with Hitler – started the bloody redivision of Europe and the world?

Quite opposite, they are overwhelmed with pride for the “grandfathers-winners” (with whose corpses such red generals as Marshal G. Zhukov literally filled the German positions to obtain through “fearless offensives” honors and new titles), which is typically abundantly “warmed” by alcohol. Most of the “grandchildren of the winners” do not know anything about this war, which they are so proud of – they often do not even know Soviet propaganda tales like “28 Panfilovites” or “Gastello’s exploit”. Do not even know the names of their “heroes” – Soviet war criminals, such as Z. Kosmodemyanskaya [6] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn6) and A.Marinesco[7] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn7), exalted by Soviet and Russian propaganda as demigods.

If you look closely, it will not be difficult to find signs of hypocrisy, falsity, “fakeness” of this whole celebration. So, almost every year the regional authorities are disgraced, hanging the cities of Russia with banners, in which instead of depicted Soviet soldiers and military equipment there are, at best, American, but more often German ones, including those belonging to the Waffen SS. And the number of “veterans” (which are used as decoration of the holiday, to create an atmosphere of pomposity and solemnity) increases every year, and every year they are younger and younger – there are already a lot of “veterans” who are coevals of the Victory – it seems they “destroyed the Nazis” being in the mother’s womb or in cradle.

To complete the image of this “most sacred” holiday for Russians, it is worthwhile to show how it looks in reality – above all, with what respect they widely use the “sacred symbol of Victory” introduced a few years ago – the “St. George” black-and-orange ribbon (which for several centuries has been a part of the military awards of the Russian and then of the Soviet military) and other symbols:

http://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/888.jpg http://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/889.jpg http://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/890.jpg

A war veteran in his chic villa, turns to the authorities with gratitude that they do not forget:


For comparison, let us cite the views of representatives of – without exaggeration – the “conscience of the Russian nation”, Russian intellectuals, real front-line soldiers, about this “victory”:

Nikulin, Russian and Soviet art critic, professor, member of the Russian Academy of Arts: «… Everywhere everything is the same. Indifference to the memory of the dead is the result of a general brutalization of the nation. Political arrests of many years, camps, collectivization, famine destroyed not only millions of people, but also killed faith in good, justice and mercy. Cruelty to one’s own people in the war, millions of victims, easily killed on the battlefields, are phenomena of the same order. How can people respect the memory of their victims, with Pavlik Morozov[8] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn8) as their national hero ?! How can you blame people for their indifference to the bones of those who died in the war, if they destroyed their temples, abandoned and befouled their cemeteries? The war, which was conducted by the methods of concentration camps and collectivization, did not contribute to the development of humanity. Soldiers’ lives had no value at all … No monuments and memorials are able to convey the enormity of military losses, to truly perpetuate the myriad of senseless victims. The best memory for them is the truth about the war, a true story about what happened, the disclosure of archives, the publication of the names of those responsible for the disgrace.»
Astafiev, writer: «The Soviet militarists are the most rabid, the most cowardly, the most vile, the dumbest of all, which were before them in the world. It was them who “won” 1:10! It was them who threw our people, like straw, into a fire – and Russia was no more, and there is no Russian people either. What was Russia is now called Non-Black Earth, and all this is overgrown with weeds, and the remnants of our people fled to the city and turned into punks – they left the village but they did not reach the city. How many people were lost in the war? You know, and remember. It’s scary to call the true figure, right? If to call, then instead of the ceremonial cap, one must wear a schema, get on knees on Victory Day in the middle of Russia and ask his people for forgiveness for the mediocre “won” war in which the enemy was bombarded with corpses, drowned in Russian blood.»[9] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn9)
Solzhenitsyn, writer, publicist, Nobel Prize laureate: «Many people passed through our prison cells in 1945-46, but they were not the ones who cooperated with Hitler, although some of them were also. There were no guilty, but only those who had just been in the West and were released from the German prison camps by the Americans. It was considered a crime – freed by the Americans. This means that he saw a good life. If he comes back, he will talk about it. The worst thing is not what he did, but what he will say. And all these persons received a ten-year term.».

However, this is a voice in the wilderness. Those who think so in Putin’s Russia are considered “traitors”, while some of them – for not enough “patriotic” reviews of propaganda films about the Second World – are even imprisoned[10] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftn10).

May 9 can be called a truly unifying holiday – it really unites. It unites the insolent authorities – with their apologetics of Stalin and the “patriotic” calls “to rally around the Kremlin, like the grandfathers, before an external enemy” – and the people – miserable in their everyday impotence, stupid, lacking sense of measure and common sense, having nothing what he could be proud of in the present, and therefore willingly clinging to any myths about “greatness” and about the “sacred victory”, which are fed to him by the satisfied owners of the Kremlin.

A sticker “1941-1945 – we can repeat” is very popular in Russia: the death of millions of people, the ruined cities, famine and terror on both sides – all this through the prism of “victorious” sodomy. And by the way – does anyone still believe that homosexuality is hated in Russia?

[1] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/809#_ftnref1) They themselves often explained their actions by the desire to “avoid blood”, “not to allow provocateurs,” but it is possible that the reason was different: they already saw themselves as rulers of the “new Russia” and therefore wanted “reconciliation” with the Soviet bureaucratic apparatus

Vseslav Volkov: Russia not for Russians. Why Vladimir Putin is not a Nationalist – 3
April 9, 2017


6.The Russian Federation is a growing Islamic, Asian state

The Muslim holidays of Uraza-Bairam (the Arab Eid al-Fitr) and Kurban-bairam (the Arab Eid al-Adha) are other important for understanding the essence of modern “RFia” holidays.

So, instead of thousands of words:

Moscow, the Russian capital…

Saint-Petersburg, the «Northern Venice»…

As it is easy to guess, these holidays have a national scope in the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin congratulates Muslims with them every year (in 2015 he did it being in the mosque and reading aloud the Qur’an [1] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn1)). At the same time and in the place same significant words sounded: “Russia is the successor to the Golden Horde!”[2] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn2). Residents of the currently rapidly Islamizing Russia can hardly argue with this statement.

And such “Muscovites” from year to year prevail in the heart of the capital, on Red Square, during the New Year:


Every year in Russia, the number of Muslims is growing rapidly, both due to visitors from Central Asia and the Caucasus, and due to a number of Muslim republics of the Russian Federation (mostly North Caucasian – ethnically and culturally alien to the Slavs, highly criminalized and corrupt – even by the standards of Russia). Already, they are about 6.5% of Muslims among the Russians (that is, not counting about 20 million immigrants) , even according to official data.


Statistics of the economic portal RBC on immigrants in 2015: the total immigrants amount in Russia – from 10.2 to 20 million, illegal – from 3 to 10 million, illegal in Moscow – from 0.8 to 2 million.

An ordinary station of the Moscow metro. Nothing surprising.

Caucasian and silent Russian slaves. A very symbolic photo.

Crowd of V.Putin supporters: on the left – 2012, on the right – 2014.

Muslims, especially Caucasians, are very attracted by the service in the power structures of the Russian Federation. Their number in the law enforcement bodies of Russia is growing every year, they feel more and more confident there.

“Russian” policemen: Caucasian lezginka and Muslim namaz

The Russian army, so widely advertised, including abroad, especially after the Crimean events of 2014, is a separate story.

I have given below plenty of pictures of the relationship between Russian soldiers – ethnic Russians and ethnic minorities, mostly Muslims – so that you can really feel all the “power”, as well as the “Russian”, “Slavic”, “Nordic” spirit of the Putin’s army.

The most popular are humiliations of “brave Russian soldiers” by Muslim soldiers from Dagestan:

Chechens and Ingush (also the North Caucasus):
Other Caucasians (also predominantly Muslims) also do not stand aside:
The Islamist “finger up” (“Allah is One”) – this gesture is now considered a good form in this military unit


The same thing is done by even less “daring” Asians – Tajiks, Kalmucks, Kazakhs, Yakuts, etc.:
However, the most colorful “inter-ethnic climate” in Russia characterizes this incident that took place a year ago:http://pokrov.world/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/24.jpg
“Allah akbar!” – “Police, police, here is a woman wearing a hijab, with the head of a child in her hand!” – “No, it’s not interesting, it’s not a rally of Russian nationalists”

02/26/2016 Gulchekhra Bobokulova, a native of Uzbekistan, hired as a nanny for a 4-year-old girl in a Moscow family, cut off the head of her foster child and set fire to the apartment. During 40 (!) minutes, a woman wearing a black hijab and holding a bloody head of a child in her hand was walking along a busy street and urging passers-by to jihad “for Syria” until she was detained by the police. This happened near the entrance to the metro, in the prestigious district of Moscow, not far from the city center. It is noteworthy that at the trial Bobokulova was found insane and released from criminal liability for the acts committed. This means that the possible scenario is miraculous “healing” of the “nanny” in a few years and her release to freedom [3] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn3). Comment is needless.
As in all the other thematic sections, those interested in the life of modern Russia can easily find on the Internet thousands of examples of both blatant behavior – up to open terror – from “new Russians” towards ethnic Russians, and frankly anti-national policies of the state on this issue.

7.Chechnya is the winner over Russia

A separate, very colorful, story of Russia’s domestic policy is the relationship between the Kremlin and the Islamic republic of Chechnya. In the early 1990s, the leadership of the republic decided to withdraw from the Russian Federation, which was accompanied by internal clashes, ethnic cleansing of the “non-indigenous population[4] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn4)». For this reason, in 1994-96 the First Chechen War took place, and from 1999 until about the middle of the 2000s – the Second. As a result of the second war, part of the separatists led by A. Kadyrov swore allegiance to the then new Russian ruler, Vladimir Putin, promising him the stabilization of the situation in the region.

Instead, Putin did not just “forgive” the Chechen fighters, who had cut off the heads of the captured Russian soldiers days before, but assigned them “heroes of Russia”, while the most prominent Russian officers, famous for their battles with separatists and therefore hated by many in Chechnya, were imprisoned[5] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn5). The Kadyrovs – first a father (he died as a result of the terrorist act in 2004), and then – the son – got practically unlimited power in the republic, and often – beyond its borders. There is a large number of Kadyrov’s conflicts with federal Russian ministries (for example, because of their inability to exercise their authority in the republic or because of disputes over the amount of federal “help” to the region) from which he invariably emerges a winner.

Chechnya – that produces almost nothing, the real “economic hole” of Russia, – due to multi-billion subsidies from the state budget [6] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn6) is, however, much richer than most regions of the Russian Federation – Spending huge money on contruction of chic (quite tasteless) buildings or on one of the most expensive Russian teams – “Terek”. Kadyrov, in turn, lives as a small sheikh – with his palaces, army and hundreds of luxury cars.

It has long been obvious: Putin is afraid of Kadyrov.

R.Kadyrov and his army

This way, in the opinion of the leadership of Chechnya, a “respected person” should go.

Dances on the money of Russian taxpayers – the Chechen national tradition

Young R.Kadyrov is surrounded by Chechen terrorists, including the infamous S. Basayev, who, in particular, captured in 1995 the hospital in the city of Budennovsk. About 150 people died, 415 were wounded.

And this is a street in Moscow and a bridge in St. Petersburg, named in honor of R. Kadyrov’s father – A. Kadyrov, also a terrorist who called on the Chechens “to kill as many Russians as you can.” It’s funny to hear after this the indignation of Russian politicians about the names of streets in the cities of other countries, isn’t it?

Is this Abu Dhabi? Maybe Doha? No, this is Grozny – the capital of Chechnya

8.Whom does Russia belong to?

To understand the status of Russians in the modern Russia it is important to know who owns the national wealth of the country, primarily its minerals, the sale of which abroad constitutes the lion’s share of all export revenues of the state. For none of those who have any idea of ​​modern Russia, it’s no secret that the Russian Federation has an openly kleptocratic regime. It is important to note that ethnic minorities occupy an important place among oligarchic groups controlling and consuming the country’s main wealth.

In 2014, Forbes magazine ranked the richest families in Russia [7] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn7). We will quote it, indicating the ethnicity of the families:

the Rothenbergs (5,55 ìëðä USD) – Jews;
the Gutserievs (4,85 ìëðä USD) – Ingush (the North Caucasus);
the Ananjevs (4,6 ìëðä USD) – Russians;
the Sarkisovs (2,7 ìëðä USD) – Armenians;
the Shaimievs (2,3 ìëðä USD) – Tatars;
the Mutsoyevs (1,52 ìëðä USD) – Yezidis (the North Caucasus);
the Magomedovs (1,4 ìëðä USD) – Avarians (the North Caucasus)
the Bazhaevs (1,24 ìëðä USD) – Chechens (the North Caucasus);
the Aminovs (1,12 ìëðä USD) – Jews;
the Zubitskys (0,7 ìëðä USD) – Jews.

“9 kings of Russian real estate.” Of the 9 top-oligarchs of the real estate market – no one is ethnically Russian. A good illustration of 2013 from the portal Sputnik and Pogrom (at that time it could still be called nationalist and opposition).

A separate issue is the gradual expansion of China in the Russian Far East, which is supported by the Russian authorities. In addition to several islands on the Amur River, simply “donated” to the PRC during the years of Putin’s rule, the Kremlin took even more significant steps in this direction: in 2015, 115,000 hectares of agricultural land in the Trans-Baikal region were given to the Chinese for rent for 49 years. In addition, in the same Trans-Baikal region, for the same 49 years, 1,844,407 hectares of forests adjacent to the state border with China were leased for cutting by the Chinese [8] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftn8). For the sake of the Chinese expansion in the Far East, the Government of Russia specifically developed the concept of “territories of advanced development”, which provides, in particular, the possibility of importing foreign workers to such territory without any restrictions.

Most likely, in 49 years – given both China’s overpopulation (and the devastation of the Russian Far East) – these vast areas will be inhabited mainly by the Chinese. If not, our “Eastern brothers” (with their known “love” for ecology) will simply leave there a lifeless desert, taking all the resources away.

A clear picture. The title of the article reads: “China takes patronage over Transbaikalia. The Celestial Empire asks to ensure the resettlement of [its] citizens “

Such maps of China hang in Chinese schools. According to them, the Russian Far East is the territory of the PRC, and according to the official historical literature of China, “Siberia is Temporarily Lost Territory of the Celestial Empire”

9.Gay Parades: not approved, but have long become reality

Contrary to the stereotype (which is frequently encountered in the West) that the very possibility of gay pride parades in Russia is unthinkable, public actions of the “LGBT community” have long become part of the socio-political and cultural life of the modern Russia. At the same time, the notorious legal norm on the prohibition of propaganda of homosexuality among minors is rather a populist profanation of real struggle.

It makes no sense to go into detail in this issue, I will only give the two most colorful illustrations:

[4] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftnref4) 25 years ago, only about 70% of the population of the republic were Chechens, now – about 99%
[5] (http://pokrov.world/en/archives/881#_ftnref5) The most prominent of them was Colonel Yu. Budanov, a very popular military man in the army, who many times rescued whole troops of the Russian army by his decisive actions. He was accused of raping and killing a Chechen girl and after his release from prison in 2011 he was demonstratively killed in the center of Moscow. Despite the extraordinary popularity of Budanov among the people and the massive indignation of this event, only several hundred people from the 15 million-Moscow came to the funeral of Budanov in the summer of 2011… That is why the very question “Why there was no social uprise of Russians that days?”would sound ridiculous…
