Among the many bloody secrets associated with the preparation of the organization of "perestroika" in the Soviet Union and its subsequent destruction, far from the last place is occupied by a more than strange series of deaths of the top military leaders of the Warsaw Pact member countries, which followed the large-scale exercises of the armies of this block "Shield- 84 ", which took place in Eastern Europe.
Thus, the forces implementing the plan to liquidate the USSR and the entire socialist camp, as such, eliminated one of the most serious threats to it. In this case, there can be no question of any "coincidences" and coincidences.
Get the military out of the way
As I wrote earlier in a number of articles on this topic, the path "up" to Mikhail Gorbachev and his clique was paved, among other things, by physically eliminating those persons in the top leadership of the party and the country who could become an obstacle to the arrival of "perestroika" to real power. Moreover, to prevent the subsequent implementation of their treacherous intentions. There were very few real forces capable of doing this, except for the highest governing bodies of the CPSU, in the Soviet Union. The State Security Committee and the army - that's probably all. At the same time, only the army could carry out really large-scale measures to restore order in the country. If we talk about all the states that were part of the "socialist camp", then only the military leaders of the Internal Affairs Directorate, united by common intentions and clearly coordinating their actions, could keep them "in check". This happened, and more than once - in Czechoslovakia in 1968, in Hungary in 1956 ...
During the events we are describing, Poland was "next in line" - there the rotten swamp of "democracy" seethed and gurgled since 1981, forcing the then leader of the country, Wojciech Jaruzelski, to introduce martial law. Nevertheless, it was not possible to achieve the final stabilization of the situation - everyone understood that sooner or later the "Polish question" would have to be resolved in the most radical way. The Soviet army by that time already had considerable combat experience gained in modern conditions - in Afghanistan, and the introduction of its contingent, as well as units of the army of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and the GDR in Poland, according to available information, was discussed and considered in all seriousness.
As a matter of fact, the "Shield-84" I mentioned was a brilliant demonstration of the full readiness of the Internal Affairs Department to conduct combat operations to "enlighten" some of its members. Our paratroopers landed on the territory of the Czech Republic and Germany, motorized rifles uncontrollably advanced in Slovakia. Naturally, "with the support of comrades in arms" from the Hungarian and East German armies, but who "plays the first violin" in this magnificent "concert" of fire and steel was clear to anyone. Generally speaking, in the course of these maneuvers, the interaction was perfected not only of field units, but also of the headquarters of all the armies of the Warsaw Pact Organization, from the USSR to Bulgaria. And it was very likely that in this case it was not at all about the confrontation of "imperialist aggression" in the form of a surprise attack by NATO troops, but about something completely different.
It can be easily assumed that the ministers of defense of the socialist countries who gathered during the exercises in a close circle were not cracking vodka, not hounding anecdotes, but discussing an extremely serious and becoming by that time more and more urgent question: “What to do if the whole system goes to pieces whom they swore to defend? What to do if the enemy does not come from outside, but from inside? " In fact, these people, even under the condition of the death or betrayal of the top state leaders, could well turn history back and prevent everything that happened later, starting from the already very close 1986. It is very likely that they found a consensus on this issue, and this frightened those who did not take their eyes off the meeting participants so much that the order to liquidate them was issued immediately. And then it was executed. However, in this matter, everything is very confused and we will talk in more detail about exactly how this monstrous crime was carried out later.
Stalin's People's Commissar on the path of "perestroika"
In order not to drag out the narrative and not escalate the intrigue beyond measure, I will immediately clarify: literally within a little over a year after the end of the Shield-84 exercises, four defense ministers - the USSR, the GDR, Czechoslovakia and Hungary - passed away, one after another. Their deaths were preceded by a disease with absolutely the same clinical picture: mild malaise - sluggish pneumonia - severe blood damage - aortic aneurysm - heart failure - death. To blame everything on "gerontocracy", as in the case of members of the CPSU Central Committee, will not work. Some, nevertheless, try: they say, the "old generals" either overdid it during the maneuvers, or after them at the table - so they died from completely natural reasons. Doesn't fit! The same Ustinov was 76 years old at the time of his death, his colleague from Germany Heinz Hoffmann was 75, but Martin Dzur, who headed the army of Czechoslovakia, “burned out” at the age of 65, and the Hungarian Minister of Defense Istvan Olah was at 58! All of them took part in the maneuvers that became fatal for them.
Please note that these people, as you understand, were not treated by a paramedic-dropout in a field hospital. The best physicians and all imaginable and inconceivable means were thrown to save their lives. Failed. However, with the exception of one case - another member of the "Shield", Bulgarian Defense Minister Dobri Dzhurov, fell ill with the same mysterious ailment. However, he scrambled out. Or he was allowed ... We will return to this extremely intriguing topic. In the meantime, let's just note once again - when for a short time, under absolutely similar and extremely "cloudy" circumstances, four people of all ages die, but who took part in one event and pose a serious threat to someone ... This is no coincidence , this is murder!
His first victim, quite naturally, was USSR Marshal Dmitry Ustinov. Many remember that he was the Minister of Defense of the Soviet Union under Brezhnev, Andropov, and Chernenko. Not everyone, however, knows that he became the People's Commissar of Armaments of the USSR under Comrade Stalin, in less than 33 years. It happened on June 9, 1941. The time before the start of the war was then counted not for years and months, but for days and hours. Iosif Vissarionovich understood this perfectly and would not have put anyone in such a position. Ustinov, who was responsible for every bayonet and grenade that came from factories in the Red Army, justified the confidence of the Supreme Commander in full - he received the first Hero Star already in 1942. Happened to him and "fall under the distribution." On business, the youngest member of the People's Commissariat and the State Defense Committee literally flew on his motorcycle - well, and flew into an accident, breaking his leg. Stalin then sarcastically spoke about "some irresponsible people's commissars who allow themselves to break their legs during the war in a peaceful atmosphere." Well, he took action - in his own manner. Allocated a personal car to Ustinov so he wouldn't drive. Why? Probably because Ustinov did not interrupt the leadership of the People's Commissariat for a day, holding its meetings right in the hospital ward.
Subsequently, this outstanding statesman stood at the origins of the creation of the Soviet missile program and the country's missile defense system. Dmitry Ustinov's contribution to the development of the Soviet state and the army cannot be overestimated at all. His efficiency amazed even people of Stalin's time, who were all accustomed to "plowing for wear and tear." The marshal slept for 3-4 hours a day, did not recognize the weekend. Only from time to time it was possible to literally push him into a short vacation. If this man of Stalin's temper, fanatically devoted to his homeland, remained at the head of the Soviet army, Gorbachev and his henchmen would not expect a ridiculous GKChP, but something completely different. At the same time, there is no doubt that an end to their sabotage would have been put not in 1991, but much earlier.
Poison, virus or ... drugs?
The widespread use of various types of chemical and biological weapons by Western intelligence services and, above all, the US CIA in their war against "America's enemies" has long been no secret to anyone. Suffice it to list the attempts to exterminate the Cuban leader Fidel Castro, which were mainly undertaken with the use of such an arsenal. Disputes about what caused the deaths of the defense ministers of the ATS countries - a "slow" poison, used since the Middle Ages or some deadly virus that infected them, continues to this day. Personally, I am leaning towards the second version. Moreover, most likely, the matter was even more complicated. It is possible that in order for the infection that had entered the body of the victims to turn from an unpleasant, exhausting, but not fatal ailment into a murderer, a certain "catalyst" was needed, probably of a medicinal nature. Where do such assumptions come from? The fact is that the memories of those who were with Dmitry Ustinov in the last months of his life paint for some reason two completely different pictures.
According to the chief physician of the Kremlyovka Yevgeny Chazov, the marshal "felt unwell" immediately after returning from the exercise, after which he went to rest in the Volzhsky Utz sanatorium in Zhiguli. And after that I got sick completely ... However, a person who causes much more confidence - Ustinov's chief adjutant, Colonel-General Leonid Ivashov, categorically refutes these speculations. According to him, the minister returned from Czechoslovakia completely healthy, and spent his vacation in a completely different place - in Sochi, at State Dacha No. 1 "Bocharov Ruchei". There I felt the first signs of malaise. Why is Chazov lying? Because it was he who was in Sochi who was "treating" Ustinov at that time! Well, he later "cured" at the Central Clinical Hospital - to death ... The chronology of the deaths of the ministers raises certain questions in itself: Ustinov died on December 20, 1984. CHSS Minister of National Defense Martin Dzur shortly after him - January 15, 1985. They were clearly in a hurry to remove the very first ...
On December 2, 1985, the Minister of National Defense of the GDR, Hantz Hoffmann, dies, and less than two weeks later, on December 14, 1985, his Hungarian colleague Istvan Olach dies. One gets the impression that at a certain moment in the organisms of infected victims a certain biological mechanism was triggered, inevitably bringing them to the grave. But Bulgaria's Minister of National Defense Dobri Dzhurov, who at the same time showed the same symptoms, managed to somehow recover. It was he who subsequently, in 1989, played an almost decisive role in the removal of Todor Zhivkov from power and the surrender of the country to the "democratic forces" led from the West. Is it a coincidence too? To touch the Polish Minister of National Defense Florian Sivicki, who was present at the maneuvers, did not make the slightest sense from a practical point of view - under the living Wojciech Jaruzelski, who was in real control of the army and the country.
Again, if every one of the ministers who had been to Shield-84 had died, it would have been too suspicious. With the Romanian Minister of Defense, Constantin Olteanu, in general, it is extremely interesting - just during the "second wave" of deaths, Ceausescu himself dismissed him from his post, having appointed him mayor of Bucharest. Perhaps this is what saved him. Olteanu, unlike most of his colleagues (Hoffman, for example, began fighting the Nazis back in Spain in 1937), did not have serious military experience. But he was quite convinced as a communist. The general result of all these deaths is well known - during the "velvet revolutions", as they are called in the West, during which its agents destroyed the entire socialist system, in practically no country did the armed forces stand in the way of this process. The goal was fully achieved.
The death of Dmitry Ustinov and the death of Konstantin Chernenko, which marked the coming to power of Gorbachev and the beginning of "perestroika", were separated by some two and a half months. At the very time when the Marshal, who had devoted his whole life to serving the people and the country, was painfully extinguished in the ward of the Moscow Kremlin, vultures were already feasting in distant London. The traitor to the Motherland Mikhail Gorbachev, who was named the secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU, in the company of his two closest henchmen - Alexander Yakovlev and Eduard Shevardnadze, swore an oath of allegiance to Margaret Thatcher, who after this visit passed the verdict: "You can deal with this." The future destroyer of the USSR was finally approved by the West for use in business as the chief Judas. The special operation was entering its final stage ...
