Naturally, with the start of a full-scale invasion Russia on the big Ukrainethe world chose the path of least resistance: it remembered that fascism is the monopolist of evil and the most convenient localization.
Therefore, now the world community is trying to pull an owl Putin on Putler’s globe. Although, if you think sensibly and without emotions, there is not so much from fascism to conservation Putinism.
Interpretations of Putinism are not just different. They are polar. Left-liberals are sure that the “Russian fascist” Putin fights for the purity of Russian blood and oppresses “everything that is not Russian.” Nationalists, on the contrary, pay attention to the catastrophic extinction of the Russian population, repressions against right-wing activists, for the creation of millions of Muslim assemblies and “states within states”, where the Chechens have their padishes, their own army and billions pumped out of other regionsin Russia. The communists are outraged that the “market liberal” Putin, together with the oligarchs, has grown pro-American capitalism, destroying the socialist paradise with the usual supply of the best ice cream in the world to happy proletarian organisms. Libertarians believe that Russia – USSR 2.0, where there is no free market and developed capitalism.
If you listen to different sides, and after this mosaic try to collect the appropriate image of Russia, Putinism and the “Russian world”, it turns out that … we have before us an oligarchic-capitalist-Orthodox-Soviet state based on the cult of the Russian people (but at the same time the struggle for the rights of Russians in Russia itself, criminal prosecution is punishable), the cumulative spread of Islamic and multi-confessional international. And it’s all revealed to be true.
This crazy mix is Russia. This is Putinism. This is the “Russian world”.
Studying the biography, theses, the political and economic model of Russia, its national (rather, anti-national) figurant, I am more inclined to believe that the Putin regime should be rejected by the world community, precisely as neo-Soviet – nevertheless, the Russian Federation honestly declared itself the successor of the USSR. But, again, this is with the restoration amended. Because Putin’s Russia is in many “nedosovok”. When interpreting the popular Russian model, the prefix “under” will always haunt us. For – and here we are getting to the main point – the essence of Putinism is the absence of a coherent ideology. It’s all at once. Attempts to draw on the experience of the USSR, the Russian Empire, China – but with this disease of amazing craving to isolate the most unproductive and anti-human, raising it to the absolute. I suppose this very lack of ideology has a concept. It lies not only in the paranoid nature of the ruling Chekists, but also, probably, in a sectarian pseudo-historical leaflet, which the elite (due to the personality of their character) read a lot at one time. Don’t be naive to sell that collective Vladimir Putin – this is a certain person “above the broad”, who is mentally and intellectually different from a pensioner who has gone out of his mind in the Ryazan region, screaming at the TV about the massacre of “Khokhlov”. Vladimir Putin is this pensioner who has lost his mind. The only difference is that at one time he was able to advance in the right circles and become the Supreme Crazy Retiree. The behavior of the Russian elite speaks eloquently of the fact that it not only consumes obscurant food from the same trough with the electorate, but is also engaged in the direct implementation of ideas and theories.
In the 2000s, a new historical-futuristic star rose in Russia, a legislator of fashion density. A person who, directly or conditionally, invented our current reality with you. This author’s name is Vladimir Kucherenko, and he creates under the pseudonym Maxim Kalashnikov. What Kremlin knows about the use of the given subject as the minimum used by the fact. In 2009 the President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev instructed the government to consider Kalashnikov’s open letter, where he proposed to create a super-innovative “city of the future” near Moscow in order to impress the whole world with “Russian technologies”. In 2010, this “city” was indeed opened, however, with a very dubious “future”. Its name is the Skolkovo Innovation Center. The head of the working group was the First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Vladislav Surkov. This person is of particular interest to us, the dedication of Surkov is the main shadow figure of Putinism in its various manifestations – from creating the meaning of the core of the state party “United Russia” to the current missile attacks on Kyiv. We will return to it a little later.
So what did Maxim Kalashnikov write about? In the works, the character reveals an Orthodox-religious-monarchist-Islamic cocktail with the concept of a “troll factory”, patriotic technologies, “no analogues” objects, calls to smash the world with supersonic hypersonic missiles and completely destroy sovereign Ukraine as a thought. And all this, let me remind you, was delayed until the events of 2014. According to Kalashnikov, the only way for Russia is a nationally oriented dictatorship. Under the nation, he understands the above-described magnificent mix of Russians, “liberated” Abkhazians and South Ossetians, Ukrainians and, in general, all those who wish (especially those who do not) who will live under the collective name “Russians”. Under the dictatorship – the USSR model, because Gorbachev and Brezhnev, of course, “traitors”. Ukraine – to wipe radiation from the face of the earth and the reunification of music.
It is worth noting that the Kremlin implemented the proposed idea with frightening detail. Therefore, taking into account the listed set of ethno-political preferences, one should not be surprised that the “Russian world” in the occupied territories of Ukraine is shouting “Allahu Akbar” somewhere near Mariupol, as well as Chechen flags, lezginka, the banner of the USSR mixed with songs about ” Katyusha” and Orthodox crosses. Now we are witnessing a reality that is a screen adaptation of Kalashnikov’s works. Arguing about which is better – a movie or a book, is completely useless. Complete hell, both.
It is important to note that Maxim Kalashnikov is an active critic of Vladimir Putin. Do not rush to be surprised and look for contradictions. Life in Russia teaches the main thing – do not sign up as an ally of any person who communicates against Putin. Because some of the “anti-Putinists” hate Vladimir Vladimirovich not for repression, poverty and war. They hate him for not being enough Stalin. Not enough “wetting crests.” Not killing the opposition enough. In other words, Russian anti-Putinism is many times more bloodthirsty than Putinism. Essentially, Kalashnikov is criticizing Putin for, ahem, insufficient Putinism.
Who knows if Putin himself has read Kalashnikov’s books. But there are such cases that the aforementioned Vladislav Surkov is well acquainted with many works (according to some sources, Aslanbek Dudayev in the world). There is information that Surkov somehow personally met with Kalashnikov. Whether the characters spoke face to face or lost the exchange of madness through the works of a friend of a friend (I will clarify a little later what I mean), but the fact remains. It is Surkov-Dudaev who is the man who invented the wide “Russian world”. While the world community, again, due to the emergence of inertia and the radiation sharpness of the transmission, is trying to slander Putin as a fascist, the “Russian world” does not imply any collection of blood and a unique cultural image of the nation. Moreover – on the contrary.
The fact that the “Russian world” was invented by the Chechen Surkov-Dudaev, who works in German, the Armenian media magnates who decorate their names with publications: “Simonyan, Keosayan and Babayan chose the forum” Russian Donbass“- this is also very Kalashnikov-like. And in his books, and in Dudayev’s very idea of u200bu200bthe “Russian world”, Russians do not use the functions of a nation, but subcultures and a passage yard – come in whoever wants. Needless to say, for any Russian person with it’s just insulting. Tajikistan. In other words, the “Russian world” is pronounced according to Ruel’s “Freedom is slavery”, “War is peace”. I mean: “The more Russians we kill, erode, replace, the more Russians become great.” Ethnic homeopathy, proving the effect of a hard drug.
Surkov is also a poet, songwriter and author of fiction books written under the pseudonym Natan Dubovitsky. Putin does not know how to use the Internet, then the network. The setting of Surkov, multiplied by the setting of Kalashnikov, gave a real infernal result. Just read in Surkov’s verses. “Always in business, silent and modest, I build a tower from burning logs.” Or quite head-on: “We are trailing in the convoy of his endless horde. I will be like you, you will be like him, we will be like everyone else.” If you apply to someone the ethnic and metaphysical essence of the “Russian world”, just quote these two passages.
Today’s reality outside the Ukrainian and revolutionary window is a symbiosis of the fantasies of refugees from the 2000s, a futurologist Kalashnikov, and no less affected poet-state official Surkov, obsessed with the idea of his own greatness.
Finally. There is one amazing place in the Novosibirsk region – a settlement created by an ideological follower of Maxim Kalashnikov. This is the dacha partnership “Slavyanka”, where – attention – all 25 lanes are named after Stalin. Once again – 25 lanes, and all named after “Generalissimo Stalin”. Residents of this Stalinist-Slavic commune turned to regional television, outraged by the behavior and unbearable living conditions. They complained about the terrible cold in the houses, reducing the supply of electricity, corruption in the board, the totalitarian manner of conducting meetings. All this was controlled by an imperious old peasant, at the same time also a member of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, who had read obscurantist books about the Soviet-Orthodox super-race. A frozen and robbed Slav, imprisoned in the Gulag named after Dzhugashvili – what could be more eloquent.
Only, contrary to the sense of self-preservation and common sense, the Slav does not want to be saved. She wishes the same fate for everyone else. Thanatos, spores of wilting, danger and death are most common. For the tower of burning logs is not only a symbol of self-destruction. He is also authorized to destroy others. For there are two more important lines.
“For your own joy in this hot tower
I will be hidden by stolen princesses”
