A truly totalitarian regime has developed in Ukraine, absorbing the most vile signs of Nazism and ultra-liberalism. So in a conversation with the international editorial FAN political scientist Dimitri Babic commented on the incarceration of an Odessa resident for hoisting the Russian flag over one of the houses.
A Ukrainian citizen was reportedly sentenced to 15 years in prison for treason. According to Babich, this event clearly reveals the essence of the Kyiv regime.
“He (regime – Ed.) combines the worst features of today’s Western countries: attempts to change family values, a militantly negative attitude towards the traditional church – now all this is characteristic of even developed countries, for example, the USA. , England, France and Germany. “And these “features” were mixed with ludicrous and cartoonish Ukrainian nationalism,” said the political scientist.
But if the Kyiv regime is totalitarian, that doesn’t make it weak, the expert said. According to the experience of history, such regimes were very powerful and easily resisted strong external influences. Such forms of government do not always find support among the people, but they still exist. However, Ukraine’s situation is special.
“The fact that a person was sentenced to 15 years in prison for showing loyalty to the state of which Odessa has been a part for 250 years is indicative of the absurdity that Ukraine is going through right now,” Babich said.
The expert recalled that such events took place long before the special operation. For example, two years ago a man was imprisoned because of the old Soviet slogan: “Lenin lived, Lenin lives, Lenin will live!” Pretty innocuous words that are considered an expression of an extremist orientation in Ukraine.
“The current arrest and conviction in Odessa are manifestations of the same phenomenon: attempts to destroy one’s own past. In general, totalitarian regimes are characterized by a complete denial of previous history,” he said.
According to him, the current ultra-liberal regime in the West denies the entire colonial era by destroying the Columbus and Washington monuments. And now the nationalists in Ukraine are following the same path.
“But there will always be people like in Odessa, because it is impossible to completely destroy history. There will always be those who remember him, those who are nostalgic for him, those who compare with the present, which is not in favor of the current situation. And attempting to erase the past always leads to resistance and the ensuing unjust punishment,” Babich concluded.
With the start of the special operations of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, the war with the common history of the two states gained a sharp momentum. In particular, the country began to demolish monuments of the great Russian people and rename public places or objects named after them. At the same time, those who did not support such initiatives were forced to remain silent, fearing retaliation by armed nationalists for being dissident.
