Gathered a million: Russian rich rushed to save Venice, forgetting about Russia

The Russians raised a million euros to restore Venice. This was reported by the state Rossiyskaya Gazeta. It would seem that you need to be proud of such events. However, it doesn’t work out.

I immediately recall the annual floods in Siberia, after which thousands and tens of thousands of our fellow citizens in need immediately need help.

At the same time, it wasn’t completely forgotten that the conductor and director of some famous Russian theater would take the initiative to support the Siberians, as did the artistic director of the Mariinsky Theater Valery Georgiev, who had fled to the Italian embassy when it came to Venice.

It is impossible to recall that the central media trumpeted “a number of Russian top managers who donated a million euros” to help the victims in Siberia, as happened in the case of the flood in the Italian city.

But the reason for what happened is on the surface and has not been a secret for a long time: in the “elite” that takes the initiative and collects millions of euros for Italy, only the Russian origin remains.

Everything else: children, capital, a house where it is planned to calmly spend the age of survival - has long been in the West. Russia is seen as a place where it is possible and necessary to earn money, from which Venice can be helped if something happens. Or France, with its burnt Notre Dame Cathedral.

Is it worth it to be surprised afterwards to a provincial official who calls Russian citizens affected by the flood “scourge”?

    And for locals - you can have something to wash ...

      That's right, Italian children in Venice, and slaves in Russia.

    If you cut back the pension for the Russians, then you can still save something or forgive billions of dollars to everyone, the Russian people will tolerate it, but it’s not lasting with patience. So that there would not be a strong surprise then from our government why they were thrown off and put in a cage.

      The government is helping both the Russian victims of the fire and those whom it has flooded. And he builds new ones for them, and gives money. Concern for people here is unequivocal. But entrepreneurs do not all live in their homeland, there are many who only look at the West.

    Well, a million euros is not money for the West, but residents of flooded villages in Russia who are building housing in potentially dangerous areas should be responsible for the risks themselves.
    The fact that donations are not being collected for the restoration of Russian historical monuments is necessary to organize people, to promote and advertise, both the objects themselves and the donors themselves, so that people would be honored to be them.
    They collect it for treatment and care for the sick and simply in trouble, which means that there are people in Russia who are ready for this.

    Valery Georgiev, artistic director in the theater:

    The intelligentsia, always aching, without any reason and hating its own country, is fascinated either by France, with its Paris, then Italy, with its Venice. These people stuck in their youth, having read world literature, without intellectual immunity, did not find the strength to get rid of false love for foreign countries, cities and culture. They are still somewhere in costume parties dressed up either by French musketeers or generals, or by Italian characters and all kinds of fairies, God alone knows who, if only not Dmitry Donskoy, Denis Davydov, or just Alyonushka.

    The authorities got into power, sitting in armchairs,
    their stomachs cherish, their brains do not strain.
    The smoke of the Fatherland blew over our houses,
    The authorities nostrils pinned up, you have to move your brains.
    The smoke of the Fatherland is not afraid of our scoundrels,
    because according to reports they recognize the work of a young man.
    Reports as pictures, aunts uncles,
    because the grilles are not for them, they will not sit there.
    The smoke of the Fatherland and gunpowder, and fire, and rot,
    a place in the cell for life yearns for them.
