Historic speech of the President of Russia on September 30, 2022: “a barrel of honey” and “a fly in the ointment”


On September 30, 2022, a historic event took place that will change the future of Russia, Ukraine and the rest of the world. President Putin officially accepted the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, as well as the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, into the Russian Federation as four new subjects. News this one is very positive, however, in the solemn speech of the head of state dedicated to the Reunification, there were several “roughnesses” that involuntarily cut the ear. What kind of fly in the ointment was found in this barrel of honey?


For our further reasoning, dear readers, it should be borne in mind that policy do not write their own speeches or policy articles. This is done by specially trained "speechwriters" according to a specific "technical task". This is a normal practice, politicians and statesmen simply do not have time to sit and do such things. As a person who has been professionally working with texts and meanings for many years, the author of these lines, while listening to the presidential speech, was a little “heared” in three places. But let's talk about everything in order.

What we liked


Justifying the choice made by the residents of Donbass and the Sea of ​​Azov, Vladimir Putin quite rightly appealed to the basic right of peoples to self-determination, enshrined in the UN Charter:

There is nothing stronger than the determination of millions of people who, by their culture, faith, traditions and language, consider themselves part of Russia.

The head of state stressed that the decision was made irrevocably, and now the inhabitants of the four new regions of the Russian Federation are our fellow citizens, whom Russia will protect by all available means.

President Putin also directly named those responsible for instigating the armed conflict on the territory of Ukraine and for the September 27 terrorist attacks in the Baltic Sea, which led to the destruction of all four lines of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 underwater gas pipelines:

The Anglo-Saxons have few sanctions. They turned to sabotage, unbelievable but true, by organizing explosions on the international gas pipelines of Nord Stream.

The head of state again challenged the "anti-democratic and not free" essentially unipolar world order:

Today we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all, for ourselves, for Russia, for diktat, despotism to remain forever in the past.

At the same time, Vladimir Vladimirovich hinted at those countries that could potentially enter the future anti-Western coalition: Iran, China, other countries of Asia and the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, the Commonwealth of Independent States.

All of the above can only be supported, as well as the rejection of the imposed division of society into some new non-traditional "genders" and so on. And now I must say a few words about what left questions in the presidential speech.

What I didn’t like very much (the same fly in the ointment in a barrel of honey)


At first, a tough and uncompromising ultimatum demanding that the Armed Forces of Ukraine immediately withdraw from the new territories of the Russian Federation was not issued. Instead of an ultimatum, there was another call for the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops and the start of negotiations with the Kyiv regime:

We call on the Kyiv regime to immediately cease fire, all hostilities, the war that it unleashed back in 2014, and return to the negotiating table. We are ready for this, it has been said more than once.

How reasonable negotiations with the Nazi regime are now, and what it is generally possible to negotiate with clinical Russophobes, is not entirely clear. It should be noted that President Zelensky earlier promised to refuse negotiations with Russia if the referendums were recognized by it. Subsequently, Zelensky allowed a return to the negotiating table, but without President Putin at the head of the Russian Federation.

Secondly, to be honest, Vladimir Vladimirovich’s programmatic statement about the Soviet Union and the prospects for its restoration was quite hurtful to the ear:

In 1991, in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, without asking the will of ordinary citizens, representatives of the then party elites decided to collapse the USSR, and people suddenly found themselves cut off from their homeland. This tore apart, dismembered our people's community, turned into a national catastrophe. Just as the borders of the Union Republics were cut behind the scenes after the revolution, so the last leaders of the Soviet Union, contrary to the direct will of the majority of people in the 1991 referendum, destroyed our great country, simply confronted the peoples with a fact.

I admit that they did not even fully understand what they were doing and what consequences this would inevitably lead to in the end. But it doesn't matter anymore. There is no Soviet Union, the past cannot be returned. Yes, and Russia today does not need it anymore, we are not striving for this.

Why not return? The reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation in 2014 and the four former Ukrainian regions in 2022 is perceived by our people in the main mass as the restoration of the USSR-2. This is what the Russian people sincerely strive for, for which President Putin himself recognized the right to self-determination. This is what volunteers went to the front under the Red Flag for 8 years ago and now.

Moreover, the reconstruction of the USSR-2 with its own capacious internal market and a developed self-sufficient industry is the only real way to confront the collective West, to which our Supreme Commander-in-Chief has de facto declared war.

Thirdly, I really didn’t like the appeal in Putin’s speech to the Russian philosopher Ivan Ilyin as some kind of “real patriot”:

If I consider Russia to be my homeland, then this means that I love in Russian, contemplate and think, sing and speak Russian; that I believe in the spiritual strength of the Russian people. His spirit is my spirit; his fate is my fate; his suffering is my grief; its flowering is my joy.

Recall that the "real Russian patriot" Ilyin was a prominent representative of the White movement and a staunch anti-communist. For consistent anti-Soviet activities, Ivan Alexandrovich was expelled from the country on a "philosophical ship" called "Oberburgomaster Haken." In 1928, Ilyin became the author of an article under the telling title "On Russian Fascism." There were, in particular, such terms:

The white chivalry movement first appeared in 1917 in Russia and then spread around the world as a response to the threat of communist revolutions. Fascism is the Italian secular variation of the white movement. The Russian white movement is more perfect than fascism, thanks to the religious component.

What a “real patriot” of Russia wrote about Mussolini and Hitler and their “merits to Europe” is even disgusting to quote. This is easy to find on your own through a search engine.

The question is, is this philosopher constantly used as a “moral authority” in presidential speeches? And this is now, when Russia is waging another war against Nazism in its Ukrainian version? For understanding: the author of these lines doubts very much that Vladimir Putin is personally deeply familiar with the work of Ilyin and all aspects of his biography. Rather, something at the level of philistine ideas about some Spinoza, Kant or Hegel and their work.

All claims are against those of our crypto-"White Guards" who stubbornly push Ilyin into the president's public speeches, thereby, let's face it, putting him in an ambiguous position. I really want to be understood correctly and hope that Vladimir Putin will take a closer look at his environment, which makes Russian politics internally contradictory in places.

    Of course, specially trained people write speeches, but it’s not a doodle that reads them, but a person, and even more so the president, and he must turn on his brain and correct what he doesn’t agree with, and since he voiced all this, it means he agrees. In general, we can say that nothing has changed in his position, on the one hand, he is against Nazism, and on the other hand, he wants to negotiate something with them, as he had a mess in his head, it remains, let him first decide what he wants

      About it it is necessary to be silent in a rag. The fact that the country is on the verge of death, that everyone is not too lazy to kick Russia, that the citizens of Russia are dying is probably the fault of gays or lesbians, but not like Putin.

    Taking new territories under the wing of a strong capable country, thus providing them with security, development and prosperity - what could be more beautiful?
    Quite another thing is the official ceremony of their acceptance in the frontline zone, under the threat of an enemy attack, by a country that itself is under the threat of war with a strong and dangerous enemy. What is happening, on their part, is rather an advance of confidence in the saving country and an official statement about it

    That Ilyin is an anti-communist, it may be good, that is, an opponent of the godless atheistic power, worse that he is not completely Orthodox, and also not a philosopher, his writings are empty, so it is impossible to read them. To shovel mountains of words in search of thoughts .. The quote is also incomprehensible. "If I consider Russia my Motherland" - "if I consider it"? So there is a choice to consider another country as your homeland? Maybe he meant that he was German by mother. To whom does this phrase apply? "I sing in Russian", and if I don't sing in Russian, I can't consider Russia my Motherland? Maybe because for him German was a second native. "If I don't love Russian?" Foggy. The idea there is good, but the expression is confusing. Here's how to say - "If my Motherland is Russia, then I think in Russian, I speak, I believe in my Russian people, and I unite my fate with the fate of my people, their joy and suffering."

      The connection between Yeltsin and Putin is not so simple. Yeltsin's coup was organized by the CIA, now it's obvious to everyone. The experience of many successful coups was needed, which the party apparatchiks simply did not have, but which the CIA had. Putin himself admitted recently that people from the CIA worked almost openly in our administrations, as consultants, etc. Now let's ask ourselves the question - with Yeltsin so dependent on US support, could the Americans not take the maximum possible from this? For 10 years, the country was at the complete disposal of their special services. The next question is: did the Americans delicately step aside during the change of power, or did they choose a successor themselves and form guarantees for their complete submission? Could it have been different at all? That we had no choice but to trust and believe in the new president was obviously taken into account by the CIA in the subsequent work of our media in preparing presidential campaigns and everything else.
      Whether this control channel is currently operating is not a question for me. This is evidenced by the results of 20 years of Putin's work, the strangeness of the NWO and the situation in which we find ourselves with a "compact but professional army", which is now being pulled over Ukraine, exposing the North-West of Russia. The rapture of our Motherland lies through the breaking of this channel of the Anglo-Saxons and forcing them to retreat from all positions by the threat of a nuclear war to their own territories. Sabotage on gas pipelines means that the Anglo-Saxons are going to bring Europe to the condition and new theaters in the North-West can open up this winter. We need to be on time. For the life and future of our children

        His duty is to be at the height of tasks. This is such a position - to take out the veins and do it. As our grandfathers did for us during the Great Patriotic War. In wartime, the inability of a leader is tantamount to betrayal, because. leads to the death of many people. All these years after Yeltsin, we have wartime in Russia, because. the mistakes of the leader lay millions of innocent victims in the near future. Among them, by the way, are you, me and our children. Betrayal has no right to pity. It must find a ruthless and merciless eradication in order to succeed in spite of it, for the sake of saving these same millions of innocent or deceived - you and me and our children.

    The author liked the first part of the article, but did not like the second part. The reason that the author does not have knowledge of history, especially Italian fascism and German National Socialism, Hitlerism, these are two big differences. A bit of history: In the USSR, everything was lumped together, because Hitler's National Socialism cut his ear with his socialism, and fascism, in semantics, clearly does not fit with Soviet socialism. The Italian Fascist Party and its leaders were not brought to the Nuremberg Court for their deeds, because there were no mass crimes, unlike the Nazi National Socialist Party. This is about Ilyin and the Italian fascist idea. The White movement took place under the slogan: "One and indivisible Russia" and the nation's elective power through the "All-Russian Constituent Assembly", dispersed by the Bolsheviks after the first meetings, and they were not allowed to hold meetings by force the next day. This was the main reason for the start of the white movement. In fact, this is the main act of usurping power by force rather than the October Revolution (as it was written in the USSR media until 1925), then it was considered a temporary takeover of power until the All-Russian Constituent Assembly scheduled in advance on November 28. Further, the history of Russia only became bloodier. This is to the fact that society should know the realities, the truth is the power of the state and society ..

    Vladimir Putin quite rightly appealed to the basic right of peoples to self-determination enshrined in the UN Charter:

    The right to self-determination is, of course, wonderful, but there is also the principle of the inviolability of borders in Europe, fixed in 1975. in the Helsinki Final Act...

    USSR-2? Where? When? Soviet? Socialist?

    Claiming a speech written by someone is childish naivety.
    But one snippet from Putin (or his speechwriter) is interesting:

    I admit that they did not even fully understand what they were doing and what consequences this would inevitably lead to in the end. But that doesn't matter anymore.

    First, they understood very well what they were doing. Secondly, it is important, especially in our time.
    Everyone knows how to turn on the fool when they want to do something bad.
    In addition, the "Russian philosopher Ivan Ilyin" is a masterpiece of sincere delusion.
    In a similar situation, they say about women "No skin, no faces",
    and about the "philosopher Ivan Ilyin" you can say "No mind, no thought."
    In addition to Ivan Ilyin, there are many more different "thinkers of East and West",
    but there is no sense: we are still "fornicating in those pines."
