War as Rossia's response to its unwillingness to give up its barbaric habits
And the first question regarding the war that arises given the promotion of theses by the Rossian media that they are at war with NATO is why Rossia, trying to prove to the United States with weapons that it is the third Rome, chose Ukraine for this, and not Poland or the Baltic countries who together with the US are part of NATO?
The answer to this question is very simple: the very existence of Ukraine as a state poses an existential danger to barbaric Rossia, a danger to its spiritual world, its so-called bonds based on what does not belong to it.
It's no longer a secret to anyone that Putin also pays not just great attention to the history of the state, which he, in fact, autocratically rules, but is driven by a painful interest. Hence, not only the frequent mention of the names of the former rulers of Rossia, not only articles on historical topics, but also the organization of new trips of historians to archival expeditions ... His pride does not allow him to come to terms with the fact that he leads not the greatest, but simply a large state.
With Putin coming to power at the beginning of the 21st century, the imperial habits of hyper-greatness and achieving this greatness by any means reawakened in Rossia. And there was no time for historical truth. Rossia is constantly making greater and greater efforts in editing its history, its Rossian spiritual world. The desire not only to seize part of the neighboring sovereign states, but also to absorb them completely, with their language, history, culture, has become Moscow's undisguised political line.
Under the influence of the total propaganda deployed by the authorities, the Rossians have lost their stable self-identification. They more and more lose their desire to be a part of their native Rossian world, their Rossian history, their Rossian language, and more and more often they flee to the more attractive free spiritually and historically rich world of the neighboring state - Ukraine, located on the territory of the former true Rus, and not quasi Rus or , as it is customary to call such phenomena in Rossia with the corresponding word, false Rus - Moscovy.
Moscow throughout its existence improved its history by replacing it with the history of the lands that it annexed to itself.
Starting from a small village in the second half of the 12th century, it received the status of a principality in the 13th century. Since that time, Moscow has swallowed up neighboring cities and principalities one by one. And along with the lands, their history, more ancient, richer, also passed to the Moscow principality. The last and most significant was the absorption of Ukrainian territory, along with its history and language.
Rus. In the annals, this is defined as a state entity with a center in Kyiv. The concept of Rus' did not apply to the lands that belonged, for example, to Novgorod or Vladimir, which eventually became part of Moscovy and later Rossia. Therefore, the chroniclers noted that they went from the same Novgorod or Vladimir to Rus. In the annals you will not find a mention of Kievan Rus or any other, it was only later invented in imperial Rossia. So, Rus' is a concept that belongs only to a state with a center in Kyiv and has nothing to do with Rossia and its history.
Rossia renamed the true descendants of Rus' into Little Rossians, awarded itself the title of Great Rossian. She recorded in the history books Oleg, Igor, Svyatoslav, Vladimir the Great, Yaroslav the Wise, Princess Olga as her rulers, turned Kyiv, the mother of Russian cities, into her Little Rossian province.
To the young Altaian, Buryat, Tuvan, Nenets, Tungus, Evenk, Yakut and representatives of other peoples who in Rossia inhabit the territory five times as large, for the one where the so-called "Russians" so concentrated live, so to this person is invested in his consciousness from childhood that the history of his country is not the history of his people, not the history of the land where his ancestors lived thousands of years before our era, but actually the history of the Ukrainian people, whose ancestors lived on the territory of the state of Rus with the center in Kyiv. And although this Kyiv is located far away, thousands of kilometers away, and although there is nothing in common with its language, culture, faith, way of life, Rossian textbooks convince us that this is precisely its true roots. And be sure: in textbooks for children, the history of Rossia will never begin with the history of the people who live in the Rossian Federation west of the Aik River, even if that people has a longer history.
Language. In any, even a Rossian textbook, there is information that in the 13th century the common language of the Eastern Slavs - the Russian language - broke up into three dialects with centers in Novgorod, Polotsk and Kyiv. As a result, three languages were formed from these branches - Belarusian, Rossian, and Ukrainian.
In 1757, the first Rossian grammar textbook compiled by M. Lomonosov was published with a circulation of 1200 copies.
In 1783, by decree of Empress Catherine II, the Rossian Academy was founded in St. Petersburg, the tasks of which were to develop spelling rules, as well as compiling grammars and a dictionary of the Rossian language.
Despite the fact that the Rossian language, according to M. Lomonosov, has "the splendor of Spanish, the liveliness of French, the strength of German, the tenderness of Italian, moreover, the richness and strong brevity of the Greek and Latin languages in the images. ... Strong eloquence of Ciceron, magnificent, Virgil's importance Ovid’s pleasant oratory…”, enlightened Rossia met the war of 1812 with the prevailing use in its environment of the language of the enemy, and not of its own. Only after the suppression of the December uprising in 1825 the empire turned to face its own language.
But even here it was not without editing its history. The empire began a large-scale campaign to replace the name of its language - "Rossian language" with "Russian language". It is clear that there could not be identical names for two different languages and therefore, in parallel, they changed the name of the "Russian language" to "Old Russian".
People. After the language, the empire defined its Rossian assimilated multi-tribal people as Russians and adherents of a different faith. That's just to provide an unambiguous definition of the concept of Russian has not yet been able to. According to the opinion of some of the Rossian classics, it was enough for a non-believer, for example, a Yakut or a Buryat, to become Russian to be baptized in the Orthodox faith.
On the one hand, the concepts of Little Rossians and Great Rossians appeared, and on the other, a one and indivisible people of Ukrainians and a multi-tribal Rossian, which Putin never ceases to talk about. In a word, everything is mixed up in the minds of the Rossians. And where did Merya, Meshcherya, Murom, Vyatichi, Mordvinians, Krivichi and others go - Rossian propaganda prefers not to mention this.
The theft of someone else's history, culture, mentality, language became especially obvious after Ukraine gained independence and the desire of the true descendants of Rus - Ukrainians - to have their own unique historical and spiritual mentality, to return it to themselves from a long Rossian captivity. This means pulling out the cornerstone from the foundation on which all Rossian existentiality stands, this is a "nuclear strike" on all Rossian bonds that hold the empire from spiritual decay. All Rossian history and language textbooks will need to be rewritten or come to terms with presenting oneself as a thief in the face of all mankind. And this is a mortal blow to all the ambitions of today's autocrat of Rossia.
It is not surprising that the Rossian Empire responded to such a desire of Ukraine for spiritual liberation with shells and missiles - the last convulsive attempts of the empire and its ruler to turn the free sovereign world into its slaves.
The second question regarding the war is, of course, the question of how Ukraine can defend its independence in a war against an aggressor like Rossia?
This and other related issues are the subject of a brilliant analysis in the article by V. Zaluzhny and M. Zabrodsky "Prospects for ensuring the military campaign in 2023: Ukrainian view". The main feature of the military confrontation with the Rossian Armed Forces is not even a significant difference in the number of forces and means of the parties in favor of the Rossians, and not even significant spatial indicators of the strategic operation against Ukraine.
According to the Ukrainian generals, the determinating factor of the military confrontation is the decisive disproportion in abilities. "The most indicative of its embodiment is the difference in the maximum reachability of weapons. If for the RF Armed Forces it is determined at 2000 km, taking into account the flight range of air-launched cruise missiles, then for the Ukrainian Armed Forces it is actually limited to 100 km by the range of missiles and the depth of the launch positions of obsolete operational tactical missile systems.Thus, since the beginning of large-scale aggression, the weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a reach that is almost 20 times less than that of the enemy.Translated into the language of military practice, this means that the Armed Forces of Ukraine, at best, can strike with obsolete means of destruction only to the depth of the operational rear of the enemy, while the enemy is capable of inflicting pinpoint strikes on targets with impunity throughout the entire depth of the country's territory... As long as this situation persists, this war can last for years...
Only if the balance in the reaching of weapons is equalized and thus loosening of the specified center of gravity of the enemy, we can talk about a turning point in the course of the war.
And here we turn to the answer to the last question. Does the US want the defeat of Rossia or no?
For 9 months the United States and NATO have been denying Ukraine precisely such weapons, which even out the balance in terms of the achievability of means of destruction and create conditions for a turning point in the course of the war.
Clever old people say that nothing warms as well as your own body. And nothing strikes a person so much as a disease from the inside. Shifting this to the level of the state, it can be argued that the biggest force that can influence the overthrow of the criminal regime of Putin is not the external blows of the enemy, but the internal large-scale resistance of Rossians to this war and to this regime. But the majority of Rossians are not affecting by this war and they are convinced that it will never affect them.
When asked about the response to a potential Rossian nuclear strike on Ukraine, the US made it clear that there would be no similar nuclear strike on Rossia. Let me put it bluntly that the US threats to sink the Black Sea Fleet cannot be compared with the threat of a strike against Rossian territory, a strike against them. And in response to such statements about hits not against them, not against their families, not against their homes, they are in no hurry to resist the policy of their own government, but, on the contrary, express their desire to wipe America into dust even more. The feeling of impunity only fuels aggression.
Meanwhile, the US policy in this matter now remains unchanged. US himself does not do. And US does not give to do to Ukraine.. So, we have what we have: the refusal to provide weapons of greater reach does not allow Ukraine to use this powerful factor of dissatisfaction with the Rossians in the war unleashed by the Putin regime.
To be fair, people often speak in Ukraine that the West, in particular the United States, owes nothing to Ukraine. You have to be thankful, thankful for what you were given. They might not give at all. It’s fair, but only in part.
Yes, the gigantic corruption over the past 30 years in Ukraine, the absence of a truly civil democratic society have led to the fact that instead of guns, tanks and planes in the armed forces, offshore companies and full pockets of money of Ukrainian officials appeared. And it is true. But also the truth is that today the Ukrainian people are defending not only themselves from the misanthropic Rossia. In the event of the fall of Ukraine, all its resources, together with the resources of Rossia, will be directed by the Putin regime to aggression against other European countries, NATO members. And then the West will need to add thousands of human losses to today's costs. And this is a completely different level of losses. Is Western society ready for this? The fact that the miser pays twice is not a secret for the West either.
What conclusion do we have from these considerations? - Unfortunately, all of the above clearly shows that the United States does not yet want a devastating defeat for Rossia.
What is the true goal of the West in the war of Light and Good against Darkness and Evil?
Their motto regarding Ukraine remains unchanged: you can't lose, you can't win. And the rumors that arise from time to time about the need to sit down with the terrorists at the negotiating table also testify to something ...
