According to Russian propaganda, Russia’s ultimate goal is to deprive the Ukrainian people of their identity, “de-Ukrainization” and repression against Ukrainians.
Russian political strategist Timofey Sergeytsev published an article in which he calls for “de-Ukrainization” and the total destruction of Ukrainian culture as such.
He believes that the creation of Ukraine as a subject within the USSR was a big mistake of the Soviet government, and the subsequent events of the 90s led to the fact that “disguised Nazism” appeared in Ukraine.
Here are a few quotes from this article:
However, in addition to the [Ukraine] top, a significant part of the popular mass, which are passive Nazis, accomplices of Nazism, is also guilty.
Further denazification of this mass of the population consists in re-education, which is achieved by ideological repression (suppression) of Nazi attitudes and strict censorship: not only in the political sphere, but necessarily also in the sphere of culture and education.
Denazification will inevitably also be de-Ukrainization – a rejection of the large-scale artificial inflating of the ethnic component of the self-identification of the population of the territories of historical Malorossiya and Novorossiya, which was started by the Soviet authorities.
Ukrainism is an artificial anti-Russian construction that does not have its own civilizational content, a subordinate element of an alien and alien civilization.
Russia did everything possible to save the West in the twentieth century. It implemented the main Western project, an alternative to capitalism, which defeated the nation-states, the socialist, red project. It crushed German Nazism, a monstrous product of the crisis of Western civilization. The last act of Russian altruism was Russia’s outstretched hand of friendship, for which Russia received a monstrous blow from the 1990s.
The article is desperately chauvinistic in nature and perfectly demonstrates the true face of Russian fascism in its worst manifestations.
In the context of the article, one should not be surprised by the events in Bucha, Irpen and other cities of Ukraine that were subjected to occupation.
Russia’s real goal is the genocide of the Ukrainian population.
However, not everything is as terrible as it may seem at first glance. The Ukrainian army is fighting for the freedom of its country and not without success, and the ideologists of Russian fascism, such as Timofey Sergeytsev, will be waiting for an international tribunal.
