This article analyzes the intertwining of information of modern post-Soviet ideology – a «feat» of the Soviet tankman in the area of the settlement Rūdiškės/Rudiškiai committed between June 23 and June 25, however, this article does not promote the political regimes in general in the 1940s. This article is a continuation of this analysis.
«... A Russian officer is ready to go to the enterprises connected with special works and dangers, if he assumes that this will become widely known. If this impulse is absent, then often, even in the most responsible position, he will find the most convenient way out for himself. The officers of the General Staff do a lot of scientific work, but prefer commercial activities to practical work in the army». German General Staff, 1913.
Official Russian historiography says, literally the following:
«… The full official name of the gun is the 85 mm anti-aircraft cannon of the 1939 model ... During the war the cannon served as the basis for the development of long-range tank guns D-5 and ZIS-S-53, which were mounted on anti-tank SAU-85 and tanks T-34-85 , KB-85 and IS-1. No one tried to doubt this information. For unknown reasons, Russian «researchers» believe «on the word». In this article it will be proved that on Soviet T-34 tanks, there was an 85-mm tank gun that had nothing to do with the anti-aircraft 85mm gun».
Why the so-called «Russian Opposition» will not be able to change the paradigms of Russia?
Currently, the people who lead and carry out the protest movement in Russia – issue the desired changes, for the changes that will actually be made by them. There is a simple description of this, – it's called – «Let smoke in the Eye». This is a seemingly simple term – the System of State Administration, – but this System was not able to solve the Russian Democrats in the early 90s of the last century.
In the formation of the post-Soviet myth of the «Feat» of First Lieutenant Z. Kolabanov, in Russia, many modern military historians participated. Such a prominent military historian as Victor Suvorov (Rezun) wrote that the «Feat» of First Lieutenant Kolobanoff is confirmed not only by Soviet, but also by German archival documents.
«The only thing we need to fear is our own fear». Franklin Roosevelt
«… The more insignificant our political demands are, the weaker our training will be. Since, the less important our political goal, the lesser price it has for us and the easier it is to refuse to achieve it, and therefore the training of the army will be less costly …». Carl von Clausewitz
For most of its history, Russia was a country dependent on the west. This dependence, first of all, was expressed in the fact that the rulers of Russia at all times traded their own natural resources. So until the middle of the 18th century Russia sold sables, as a result of which these animals were completely exterminated. However, this article is not about wild animals, but about those dominant males that form the basis of Russian «politics».
The Soviet management system was a rigid system in which there was no trust in subordinates. At the same time, the term «initiative» was not meant to be able to independently assess the operational situation, but quite the opposite. The Russian (Soviet) initiative is the ability not to rush to fulfill the initial order of a superior.
This continues to the present. In the Russian army to the present (traditionally) there are the following «winged» statements regarding the initiative.
«… True to its Asian system of arrogant scam recipients, Russia plays with the credulity of civilized countries … Hoping for cowardice and blindness of the Western powers, it tries to frighten Europe at once, putting forward at the first stage boorish, absurd demands, so that in the second stage it is „noble“ to give up part of these requirements and „compromise“, having received exactly as much as was required. A Russian bear is capable of anything if he thinks that other animals in the forest are not capable of anything … Russian diplomats throw one note after another to Western governments, as dogs throw dice to distract their attention and gain time».
For many people in Europe and over the Atlantics words coming from Russian government officials and beurocrats – “Presidents come and leave, while Russia remains” – are understood in a wrong way. Even more the closest of Putin`s associates are saying – “that there`s no Russia without Putin”. How did they come to such conclusions? What does these words actually mean and what lays behind the curtain? This article is the answer to these questions.
