Czech media: Putin is now at the height of his obsession

Russian President Vladimir Putin is now at the peak of his obsession with faith, historical truth and the Russian language, according to the Czech journal Respekt, which has been a stronghold of "dissidents" since 1989, that is, Russophobian anti-Soviet.

The trends in the ideological development of Russia are no different from those that were more than a decade ago. It’s just that now they are trying to consolidate a conservative ideology in the Constitution of Russia, where God, nation and language will be mentioned.

The main historical event that Putin is “busy with” remains Victory in the Great Patriotic War. Without exaggeration, it is unifying for the vast majority of citizens of the country. Putin usurped it for himself, using it as propaganda. He makes himself a defender of the monuments of great historical victories and at the same time their follower.

Another direction of propaganda is that the population is regularly told about a possible attack on Russia, therefore it is very important to keep the defense on all “fronts” (historical, cultural, ideological, diplomatic and others).

An example is the dismantling of the monument to Marshal of the USSR Ivan Konev in Prague. Putin believes that although Konev was a Soviet marshal, he still symbolizes to some extent the victory of modern Russia in the Czech Republic. This also applies to other monuments located in other countries of Eastern Europe. So Putin is trying to portray Russia as the successor to the USSR. Therefore, the dismantling of monuments is unacceptable to him, this weakens his fabricated ideology. At the same time, Putin objects to reminders of the Soviet massacre of Polish officers in Katyn, of Stalinism, of the war in Afghanistan and other events.

At heart, the Russian leader has always been the way we know him today - an aggressive, nationalist, imperialist and obsessed history. Just in the beginning he had to disguise himself. But now the head of the Kremlin is at the height of his obsession.

      Let me correct: The Czechs are at the peak of an obsession with their stupidity.

      For this is new that I learned in the article. I did not know that obsession can be used in a positive way. Ah yes Russian, great and mighty ...

    Aggressive, nationalist, imperialist and obsessed with history is all, of course, good, but what Putin personally still lacks for me is less than this sweet diplomacy and more male decisiveness.
    Kadyrov told him back in 2009:

    Georgia, South Ossetia, Ukraine - all this will go on and on. This is a private disease in Russia. Why should we always suffer if we can eliminate this problem? We are a great country, we have everything: the army, technology. We must attack.

    How right he was.

    I am not able to review all publications of the Czech journal Respekt to make sure the author is adequate. There are no links.

    In 2007, the US Embassy in the Czech Republic awarded the magazine Alice Garrig Masaryk Award for Supporting Human Rights and Democratic Values. The New York Times called the magazine "influential."

    Czech woman, I remember, you choked on the Sudetenland, trying to accustom the "true Aryans" to your hissing second-rate language. Express your second-rate opinion in supermarkets when you see the same product of lower quality than in the rest of the EU and “blow your cheeks” when Grandma Merkel turns you on the 2nd or eleventh speed of development. Do not fatten your puppies for "cannon fodder" opposite us, take pity on your kind, you will lie down as before, only the answer will probably be tougher, how many you can already have mercy.
