Khodakovsky explained why Strelkov was not allowed to SVO


On August 13, information appeared about the detention in Crimea of ​​Igor Girkin (Strelkov), who wanted to cross the Ukrainian border and take part in the SVO. Alexander Khodakovsky, commander of the “Vostok” battalion of the NM DPR, expressed his opinion on this matter the next day on his Telegram channel.


The military leader, statesman and public figure from Donetsk honestly admitted that his first reaction was sympathy for Strelkov, who tried to get to the front with a fake passport, but he was recognized and not allowed to enter the special operation zone. He explained that human emotions took precedence over logic then, but now he looks at what happened objectively.

Khodakovsky added that the state always takes a pragmatic approach to issues, and is not guided by emotions. He stressed that if Strelkov ended up at the front or in the territories of Ukraine controlled by the RF Armed Forces, and no matter in what status, then his authority would in any case increase dramatically and his political positions in Russia strengthened. However, all the campaigning and activities of Strelkov are now based on criticism of the current Russian government, so the state could not allow the former defense minister of the DPR to end up in Ukraine.

In this situation, two principles collided: the human need to contribute to a common cause and the principle when a common cause is done together. It is difficult for me to call Strelkov's emotional position regarding power constructive: I believe that criticizing is permissible, discrediting is not. Otherwise, the principle of "jointly" is not respected. Believe me, in our time, the biggest feat for those who have something to say is to bite their tongue

- summed up Khodakovsky.

    Well, what was Strelkov wrong in his criticism, he warned before the NMD that the leadership was very mistaken in assessing the combat capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, after the first days of the NMD he immediately said that the parade columns on the Kyiv highway were a target for other ukrov, as a result of catastrophic loss of equipment and human resources. He's just telling the truth, which doesn't sit well with someone with the disease of narcissism and a sense of infallibility.

      Strelkov is a highly respectable person and a great patriot of Russia. more than once risking his life in hot spots ... Colonel. And he perfectly understands the background of the incomprehensible adventure started by the former translator of German and Yiddish, together with the builder and instructor of the CPSU city committee ... the destruction of the transport infrastructure and decision-making centers of the enemy is the primary goal of any military action ... they do not exist. what does it smell like?...you.surely.guess. But Strelkov not only guesses and talks about it openly ... as A. Khodakovsky said about the recent incident with Igor's non-admission to the Crimea, the appearance and participation of Strelkov in any capacity in the war will instantly raise his rating in Russia ... with all the ensuing consequences. ..do the Kremlin and others like them need it?...

    Yes. Everything is to the point. Frankly and not unexpectedly. Khodakovsky what to play around with? In general, there is no reason. But note, no derogatory term to the personality of Igor Ivanovich! There are no disrespectful and even close ones. Power can and even needs to be criticized sometimes! As long as you are not involved in politics. As soon as you start building a career. power is dangerous. Conclusion. There is freedom of speech in Russia. I sometimes confirm this. hi

      For a detached Observer who does not know the history of the relationship between Igor Ivanovich and Khodakovsky, it may seem so.
      But in fact, Khodakovsky on Strelkov, since the 14th, has a big, big tooth ..

      You just need to know the nuances yes
      For example, how Strelkov and Bezler (their units) blocked Vostok in the Makeevugol building in 2014

Yes, and don’t tell me why Strelkov thought about becoming a volunteer for so long? I may not understand well, but to go through the Crimea, when it is much closer to Donetsk .... It feels like someone wants to deceive us.

    I listened to the statements of I. Strelkov, I agree with many things. True, the last monologue on YouTube is somehow incomprehensibly chaotic, with unrest, possibly before going to the fighting. But it expresses a very great concern about the future course of the NWO. While there is little information, what is there, how is it, let's wait ....

      Read the interview with Boroday, where he says that Girkin is a mentally ill person. He noticed this in 2012. Still, they were friends. It was Girkin who offered to leave Gorlovka (he had previously surrendered Slavyansk, Kramatorsk, etc.), but he was sent away and Gorlovka remained ours. Just like that, they don’t remove the post of Minister of Defense of the DPR. Moreover, it was not Putin who filmed it.

    There is an opinion that war is not the place for PR. Not very smart journalists are trying to get hot news from prominent people, but Khodakovsky fell for the bait and sows the net with his assessments ... The time will come when they will start dipping his face in his not always thought-out statements. And he will lose this face in apologies, as in the case of the Chechens .... If you command a battalion, then command in good health. There is no need to criticize neighbors and colleagues, otherwise you will have to turn to them for help ... Criticism, and only constructive, is permissible in a war when discussing plans for future operations. And only eye to eye, without the media. Then the "combat brotherhood" capable of saving the lives of you and your subordinates will not be lost.

    If we all "bit our tongues", then Ukronazi propaganda would have crushed Russian propaganda a long time ago, because Ukronazi propaganda is charged with an information war, while Russian propaganda is liberalizing and, in fact, does not wage a real information war.

    Here Hitler made it so that together the entire German people was made guilty of the fact that so many people died - 60 million or maybe more. And the Imperialists wanted to hurt all the Germans very much, even though they made excuses for being deceived. In addition, the Germans were robbed after the First World War. By force, Stalin brought part of the people out of the blow. Then it dawned on the USA that it was better to leave and make enemies. Now those who lived in East Germany are unhappy with what was done to them when they joined. Girkin wanted the best, but he did not understand what the rulers of Russia needed to be, as always. That is, neither a candle to God, nor a poker to hell. This is what happened with Lebed, whose wings were tied and sent to the next world, he was a people's man, and not only Lebed, but also others who did not understand the party's policy in the state - communism for a separate layer of Anti human garbage.

    Strelkov advocates the professional conduct of the NMD, by large forces on the basis of general mobilization, and sharply rejects the current ruling version of a protracted "battalion fidgeting between the huts", which is a direct path to the beginning of a full-scale mahalka with NATO, up to the exchange of nuclear courtesies and the transformation of the "Ukrainian bridgehead" into "Ukrainian trap"! All sane people in Russia, and there are still some in society, and, including in the leading military-political structures, you can certainly find five or even ten non-battalion, but strategically thinking people during the day with fire, they understand that with such a composition of forces and means , as it is now, at the pace it is now - Russia is defeating common sense, itself and keeping a delayed-action mine on alert under the motto: "We decided to fight peacefully - they just stirred up the dust!"

      The problem is in the semantics of the word feat. It means, in my understanding, the shift by a person (hero) of a difficult and important issue for people, which seems to them insoluble, forward along the path of its solution. This is action, not the other way around.
      Maybe it's not worth it, without serious reasons, to turn the essence inside out, but the feat, so necessary for the country, still consists of both words and urgent actions? Those who have something to say should speak. Life itself will put everything in its place.

    This is the weakness of authoritarian regimes - in this case, the Putin regime, unable to conduct an equal dialogue with citizens (social or political parties). Any truth and constructive criticism spoken in her (authority) address is perceived by the same authorities, at best, as discrediting, and in most cases, as undermining the foundations of the state or even as separatism. But Strelkov was telling the truth - the war had to be started in 2018, as the Armed Forces of Ukraine were weak. Has the Kremlin admitted its mistake? No, he didn't. Has the Kremlin admitted the failure of the first stage of the NWO in Ukraine? No, he didn't.

      any war has its own problems, whether we, the Americans or the Chinese. This is from the category of "our bad oblique artillery and high-precision enemy artillery" .. Regarding Strelkov, everything is simpler - he screwed up in the Donbass at one time and they kicked him out of there and he for many years he tried to return "to the stream" in various ways, but since at the very beginning he chose the path - everyone is bad, and I am Dartagnan, now no one will let him in from the side of RA and NM, since there will not be very much benefit , For one major-level officer, and there will be more seething

    I agree, but I know the reason for the Kremlin's unwillingness to start a "war in a serious way." The authorities are afraid of the people, they are afraid that in the end they will turn their weapons against the authorities. Because during mobilization, everyone's eyes will open and the people will ask for what we are paying with blood. For criminal decisions and lack thereof. For theft and idleness, for lies and mediocrity. In the meantime, peace and quiet, Solovyov is cracking, shops are open, you can even go to the sea. Not everyone has an understanding of the situation and the desire to understand. But in the case of mobilization, the war will grab everyone by the collar. And then...

      well, yes, all the people are dreaming of fighting against the Kremlin .. In reality, a big mobilization is a long process. You need to reactivate a lot of equipment, call and train a bunch of reservists, support them, stop the economy, and for what? in theory due to more cannon fodder to gain some advantage? now, in fact, the infantry is gradually deploying in the form of volunteer battalions, a scheme is being worked out, so partial mobilization in the future is quite possible, but it is partial, and not a rampart of infantry, what are you writing about .. and yes, "professional conduct of the SVO, by large forces on the basis of general mobilization" are, in principle, mutually exclusive concepts.

    It is simply an urgent need to criticize the authorities and the command, which makes unforgivable mistakes and shows incompetence. We are past the days when everyone and everything "approved". What this led to is known. The authorities must honestly admit their failures, listen to constructive criticism and correct their "jambs" and mediocre decisions. Then people will trust this authority. And the shooter does everything right. Tells the truth. Whether someone likes her or not. And why not give him the opportunity to be involved in the NWO. He has experience and desire to participate. Let him return the city of Slavyansk he left in 2014.
