Russian Orthodox Extremism

img 54b6827cd247d Russian Orthodox Extremism

Unfortunately, it’s not a joke – there’s a strong movement in Russian Orthodoxy dreaming of the “holy Orthodox tsar”. Putin is the best candidate at the moment.

Russian-Ukrainian war is showing new mass manipulation tools and the most interesting among them for researchers of religion is Russian Orthodox Extremism (ROE) ideology. Mass media attention concentrates on Islamic extremism, and pays little attention to this new type of religious extremism, which is much more dangerous due to couple reasons:

  • Russians have nukes
  • Russians fight much better than Jihaddists

When in late 2000s the Russian Orthodox Church communities began creating military and patriotic groups providing youth with combat sports and martial arts education, no foreign observer could predict where this trend could lead.

To understand what this youth has being training for years we need to read the catechism of “Eurasian Youth Union”, which says: “we are the empire-builders of newest type, and we don’t agree for anything less than the power over the world”.

In their revanchism attempts Russian powers actively try to draw religious factor (more…)

Aggressive neo-paganism of modern Russia and its threats

1414238420 konflikt v ukrane proizoshel ot fashizma Aggressive neo paganism of modern Russia and its threats

“Русь” = “Russia” in the reality of Stepan Komarov, a neo-pagan Russian marine, whose shooting in the Orthodox church of Yuzhno-Sahalinsk took two lives 

Russia’s attempts to establish neo-paganism and/or its blend with Russian Orthodox Christianity as a political religion constitutes a great danger for all Russia’s neighbors, both for post-USSR ones and, as the annexation of Crimea has shown, for European countries with great Russian-speaking population.

The signs that Russian powers had been building an aggressive ethnic-oriented pseudoreligion appeared in the early nineties.

Serious researchers didn’t pay attention to laughable ideology of imperial paganism (more…)

Ukraine’s Freedom: Is Putin crazy?

bambi slayer 300x200 Ukraines Freedom: Is Putin crazy?

Does the northern Bambi-slayer have medium-like contacts with “another world”? Or had Putin just gone crazy?

Is Putin crazy? From Western mass-media it looks like the whole world order these days depends on the question of Putin’s (in)sanity. Many still think Putin has gone mad\crazy\insane.

He has and he has not.
To understand Putin we need to take a deep dive into Russian infra-mystics.
Bloomberg’s logic “he’s not crazy, he’s KGB” is just an “outer” part of the answer, but to understand this creature’s motivation we need to go really deep into dark realms of consciousness and metaphysics. Western intellectuals don’t like Russian mystics – common sense of protestant-spirit countries is afraid of old Christian spirituality and visionarism, that often operate at the edge of pshychotism.

One of great Russian writers, Tyutchev, had once dropped a phrase, that has become a proverb: “You can’t understand Russia with your mind”.

It’s true – Russian rulers’ deeds logic, especially that of tsars, gensecs, and other chieftains had often gone beyond Western attemps to rationally predict or understand it. When Anglo-Saxons ask “is Putin a rational player?”, they think of rationality of their own type, and Putin’s deeds seem illogical or controversial. (more…)

Ukraine’s freedom: we want our nukes back

ru nuke irbm ss20 01 300x189 Ukraines freedom: we want our nukes backSo, the Crimean “referendum” has started. Russia has occupied a part of Ukraine, Russian provocations take place all over southern and eastern Ukraine every day. Russian troops in full readiness stay along the borders of the largest European country even from the side of Belorus. They are ready to attack. Neither EU, nor the USA have done anything except “sanctions” to prevent this.

In 1990ies Ukraine had given away all of its nukes in exchange for borders’ integrity guarantees from USA, UK, and Russia. After collapse of USSR Ukraine had the third largest nuclear arsenal after USA and Russia. Many called this act of peaceful giving away those devastating weapons a political suicide, but the nation wanted to live in peace after horrors of Soviet regime.
Our nuclear arsenal was big enough to keep all the planet in terror, and to make good money from selling its parts to all kinds of terrorist regimes. Ukrainian people had chosen a different way and the strongest world powers did guarantee us peace.

The West, as during our revolution against Yanukovych, is still “deeply concerned”. More and more people in Ukraine think – all those “guarantees” are worth nothing. West is not protecting us. No matter how this conflict is resolved (looks like without US help Ukraine is to lose at least Crimea, or couple more regions, or even all the Left-bank Ukraine in worst scenario), we ought to get the nukes back for protection from Kremlin.

We do not want the mass destruction weapons back. But it looks like we desperately need them. (more…)

Ukraine’s freedom: post-revolution, history, Putin…

 Ukraine’s freedom: post revolution, history, Putin...

Armed with Russian weaponry people in masks with no signs capturing local governmental buildings in Ukraine. They raise Russian banner. Guess, which neighboring country have these troops come from?

From Ukraine’s capital Kyiv everything looks surreal: we have just overthrown a corrupt and bloody Putin’s marionette, and at this moment Russian troops with newest weaponry land en masse in Ukrainian territory, surround Ukrainian army bases, threat Ukrainian soldiers’ families. Newcomers wear masks, but everyone knows they are Putin’s – if a French army in masks landed in Yorkshire, in just couple days everyone would know where the troops have come from.

More absurd: Putin is getting nominated for Nobel Peace Prize and Germany asks Russia not to invade Ukraine! It’s an absolutely unimaginable thing from the XXth century history’s view. But there’s more: Ukraine’s ex-president, guilty in hundreds of deaths asks Russian president to invade the neighbour-country and the latter sends his troops to “protect” Ukraine against Americans (!).

Ukraine’s freedom: waiting Putin in Crimea

1781886 577410609022733 2141436686 n Ukraines freedom: waiting Putin in Crimea

In Ukraine, after victory over Yanukovych, we have some premonition or, at least some hope, that if Putin is crazy enough to attack Ukraine, it will bring the collapse to the greatest totalitarian zombie-regime of this time.

My dear friends, it’s late evening in Ukraine now, and the ontology of all post-Soviet totalitarian regimes is the same – all the evil (no matter is it named “putin”, “yanukovych” or anything else) does it’s dirty stuff at dark. Hope and pray, we all have a non-violent night.

Couple hours ago the Russians have brought more troops into Crimea and it looks like they are going to bring some new heavy tanks in. Yanukovych has officially asked Putin for invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine

Their number in Crimea is now estimated around 16 000 – it is 6k more, than the existing treaty allows Russian Federation to keep  in Crimea. More and more Ukrainian army units report armed provocations on peninsula. Russian ships are also trying to block Ukrainian coastal guard corvettes from escaping into the sea from Crimea.

There are lots of both – evidence and rumors of Russian army moving near land borders with Ukraine.

I still hope Putin is sane and it’s just a series of provocations to destabilize new government in Ukraine. If he wanted to strike, he’d have done it already in Pearl-Harbor style while Ukrainian Army was unprepared – Russians know how to do it – Soviet army did pretty effective  reconkista of Ukraine 70 years ago. But Ukrainians are ready to fight. Getting rid of Yanukovych we’ve found out that we are much stronger when’ve thought just two weeks ago, and now many people feel there is enough won to die for it. Ukrainian anthem says: “we’ll sacrifice soul and body for our freedom” and Maidan has shown that there’s much more in it than just words.

Ukrainian command in Crimea does really have the nerves of steel – although it’s their right to do it, they still haven’t fired a single shot – because it’s just what Putin wants to. To make his movie of “nazis attacking Russians” he’ll probably have to make massacre of his own troops, just like Yanukovych did couple weeks ago. (more…)
