Another Mother’s Son (2017)

Another Mother’s Son (Russian Language)

Whilst Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt were encouraging Joseph Stalin to actively engage the military force of Nazi Germany, both Western leaders were working behind the scenes to create the conditions for the eventual ‘collapse’ of the Soviet Union. When the Red Army ‘liberated’ Nazi occupied Ukraine, they found a well organised Nazi insurgency armed in-part with British and US weaponry (the battle against this Nazi insurgency was carried-out by the NKVD and lasted until 1947, but periodically resurfaced from time to time). Churchill was certainly not ‘happy’ with the presence of Soviet POWs on British soil, as he did not want any contact between ordinary British people (who were prone to Socialistic ideas), and Communist educated Red Army soldiers). Churchill was, however, perfectly happy to grant political asylum to Ukrainian members of the SS Galicia Division in Scotland, which had carried-out atrocities in Nazi German-occupied Ukraine during WWII (as part of the ‘holocaust). In the light of Churchill’s duplicity and flirting with Nazism, I recently watched the British film entitled ‘Another Mother’s Son’ to see if it contained any merit, a brief description of which reads:

‘Based on the true story of Louisa Gould, the drama is set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey. Lou took in an escaped Russian POW and hid him over the war’s course. The tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to recapture the British soil, and the island-community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty. Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family’s sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own.’

In fact, there is not much background information within English language sources about this film, or the apparently ‘true’ story it depicts. I have had to search Russian language historical texts to verify the content and plot, etc. What is beyond historical doubt is that once Winson Churchill withdrew British troops from the Channel Islands, the British Authorities on those islands decided that the best policy toward any Nazi German invasion was ‘collaboration’ with the Hitlerite forces. Even within Britain today, the collaborative behaviour of many of the ‘British’ people living on the Channel Islands still leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. This is compounded by the fact that many of the people living there today, are very wealthy, exempt from various British taxes, and continuously court a French identity. Indeed, so insular and exclusive has places like Jersey become, that ‘Another Mother’s Son’ could not gain permission to be filmed on the island, and instead had to settle for Somerset (situated to the West of the British Mainland). Apparently, one or two highly influential inhabitants of Jersey today, were not so much ashamed of their island’s historical collaboration with the occupying Nazi German forces – but rather were more concerned with Jersey’s historical association with ‘assisting’ Soviet POWs – although to be fair, most Jersey inhabitants were far too busy cosying-up to the Nazi German Authorities, to have cared too much about the brutal treatment routinely meted-out to Red Army prisoners by their SS Guards.

This film is typical of one that tries to tread the Cold War tight-rope of feeling sorry for Soviet POWs on the one hand – whilst never appearing to condone the ‘Communist’ political system they represent on the other. This ridiculous homage to US Cold War disinformation leads to films that are purportedly ‘true’, literally changing the facts (here and there) to support an obvious anti-Soviet propaganda. At no time in this film is the word ‘Soviet’ used to describe the Russian prisoners – despite the fact that the term ‘Soviet’ is mentioned in both the English and Russian languages on a commemorative plaque located in Jersey. What is true, is that a brave British woman named ‘Louisa Gould’ (of Jewish ancestry) ultimately lost her life in a Nazi German gas chamber, for helping the escaped Soviet POW named ‘Fyodor Burogo’ (Федора Бурого).

Hitler wanted to secure his rear prior to his invasion of the USSR, and so the Channel Islands were successfully invaded in early 1942. The first batch of prisoners of war was transferred to Jersey in early 1942. A number of SS Nazi German Concentration Camps were established on the Channel Islands (notably Alderney), which were used to work Soviet POWs, French, Poles, Czechs, and Spanish Republicans to death. Soviet POWs were forced to work 12 hour day and night shifts in the local quarries – where they were fed only meagre rations – and routinely beaten. The Nazi German Commandant was ordered to work each batch of Soviet prisoners for six months only in the quarries, before finally murdering them all in often barbaric fashion (designed to save ammunition). Any Jersey inhabitant showing any type of mercy toward Soviet POWs was either shot on the spot, or ‘tried’ and transported to Germany. The Russian-language description of this film offers much more background detail:

‘The plot is based on the real fate of the photographer from Tomsk, Fyodor Burogo, who was sheltered by a resident of the English island of Jersey from fascists during the Second World War. The script was written by Louisa Gould’s grand-niece, writer Jenny Lecoet, who for many years collected materials about the feat of her relative. Louise was played by British actress Jenny Seagrove, Fyodor – Julian Kostov. He really looks a bit like the real Burogo, whose photographs are still kept in the museum of the 166th Infantry Division, located in Tomsk school No. 51. The veteran died in 2001, but the “Komsomolskaya Pravda” found out his story from those who knew him personally.;

Many of the Soviet POWs were transported from the Ukraine to the Channel Islands, where the Nazi German policy of ‘Operation Ost’ (i.e. the eradication of the Slavic race) was put into effect. In this film, the script describes Fyodor Burogo as a ‘pilot’, when historical records show that he was in fact a Rad Army infantryman. Despite being a hardened frontline soldier who had survived the horrors of Nazi German warfare in the USSR, and the equally brutal and vicious imprisonment reserved for those termed ‘inferior races’ by Hitlerite ideology, this film portrays him as a weak man who urinates himself when a Nazi German officer talks to him, and a man who is prone to immature emotional outbursts. His character in the film is also (and falsely) depicted as ‘going to church’ and being ‘interested’ in the ‘Christian singing’ – events that never happened at all. In fact, Fyodor Burogo was a patriotic Soviet soldier and citizen who despised organised religion. The final ‘lie’ that this film portrays as ‘true’ is the false statement that the Soviet government routinely ‘discriminated’ against ALL returning Soviet POWs. This is historically untrue. Many returning Soviet POWs were treated as heroes – particularly those that had tried to escape, or had actually escaped (as was the case with Fyodor Burogo). Every captured Soviet soldier had a duty to try and escape and continue the fight against Nazi Germany. What is true (but not included in this film), is the fact that those minority of Soviet POWs who collaborated with the Nazi German occupiers were arrested and tried for treason. This was exactly the same fate that befell any Allied soldiers who collaborated with the enemy. As is usual of this type of film, it portrays anti-Soviet propaganda by ‘sentimentalizing’ the Russian characters it depicts, effectively ‘stripping’ them of their ‘Sovietness’. It is not entirely a ‘true’ story as it deliberately misrepresents many of the historical facts. Fyodor Burogo had a long and fulfilling life and was admired for his bravery by the Soviet State – an attitude toward his military service that followed him into modern Russia post-1991.

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

After the end of WWII, Russian language sources state:

‘”We lived next door to Fyodor Polikarpovich Burogo on Kartashov Street in Tomsk,” says Natalya Morokova, who studied the history of the 166th Infantry Division. – In the 1960s, Fyodor Burogo often gave lectures at schools in front of students, talking about his extraordinary biography. Then his name was familiar to everyone in our city. In addition, he was a famous photographer, his pictures were often published in magazines, newspapers, books. He was a very kind, intelligent person.’

So much for returning Soviet POWs being routinely discriminated against, by the Soviet Authorities! Fyodor Burogo was hidden by Louisa Gould (whose son had been killed earlier in the war), but her family was betrayed by other Jersey inhabitants. Before her arrest, Louisa managed to get Fyodor Burogo out to safety. Whilst a hunted fugitive on te island, Fyodor Burogo illegally listened to radio broadcasts from London. Having translated these news reports into the Russian language, he then ‘threw’ hundreds of leaflets over the wire of the Concentration Camps holding Soviet POWs – so that he imprisoned Comrades could gain knowledge of all the Red Army advances, successes and victories. This episode of Fyodor Burogo’s life on the island of Jersey is completely omitted from this film, as is the fact that Fyodor Burogo, along with other escaped Soviet POWs (and a small number of Jersey inhabitants), planned an armed uprising against the Nazi Germany occupiers, scheduled to begin on May 15th, 1945. However, London soon announced that the Red Army had already taken Berlin on May 9th, and the armed uprising on Jersey was called-off. As the 10oth Anniversary of the Russian ‘Ocober’ Revolution approaches, it is important that films such as this are studied carefully, and their short-comings clearly revealed.

Poverty in Capitalist Russia (2017)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The collapse of the Soviet Union (between 1989 and 1991) was a tragedy not only for Russia and Eastern Europe, but also for humanity. I read a report on the Russian language internet which sated that between 1991 and 1999, it is recorded that the death-rate in Russia rose by 5.9 million – as Soviet provision was suddenly ‘withdrawn’ from society, Over-night all free education, medical care, welfare and working State support ceased – creating starvation and medical neglect – the likes of which had not been seen in Russia since the Nazi German invasion of the USSR in 1941. Although President Putin has provided some support and stability in ‘capitalist’ Russia, wide-spread poverty and deprivation remains the norm throughout the country. within capitalism, the will of the working people is ignored, whereas within Socialism, society is geared toward meeting all the collective needs of the working class. Today, in Russia, an affluent middle class has developed that gained its wealth by ‘stealing’ all the wealth accumulated over decades of hard work by the Workers’ State. As the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution draws near, Russia is once again being ravished by the brutal forces of predatory capitalism.

Sergei Aleshkov (Aleshkin) Сережа Алешков (Алешкин) – Six Year Old Soviet Soldier at Stalingrad

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Many millions of children suffered during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), with many millions more being orphaned due to the military actions and atrocities carried-out by the brutal invading troops of Nazi Germany. Many of these children died alone in terrible conditions, whilst others were tortured and maimed by the Hitlerites who were trying to eradicate the Slavic peoples. On the other hand, the tales of bravery and resistance to the Nazi German atrocities is not very well-known in modern Russia today, where the shallow ‘cult of celebrity’ has replaced the veneration of true bravery. This is the story of the youngest Soviet Red Army soldier of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). Prior to the Nazi German invasion of the Soviet Union, Sergei Aleshkov lived peacefully with his family in the village of Gryn. Sergei Aleshkov was only 6 years old in 1942, when the invading Nazi Germans executed his mother and elder brother for supporting the Partisans. This is how Sergei Aleshkov became orphaned. They lived in the Kaluga region of western Russia. The boy was saved by the quick-thinking of a neighbour – this selfless woman threw the him out of a hut window – and shouted for him to run … Sergei managed to hide in the woods. Today, it is difficult to say for how much time the wounded and hungry child wandered through the autumn forest, but he eventually met-up with the Partisans. The next summer, as the Partisans manoeuvred around (and through) the Nazi German lines, Sergei Aleshkov fell and injured his leg. but he was lucky – as he was accidentally found by Scouts of the Red Army 142th Infantry Regiment, (commanded by Major Vorobyov). He was starving, covered in mud, and dressed in tattered clothing. The Red Army soldiers took care of his wounds, washed and fed him, and made a specially small Red Army uniform for him.

from that point on, he was protected from direct contact with the brutal and ruthless  Nazi German soldiers, but he worked tirelessly in support of the Red Army troops as they fought ongoing battles. Between battles, Sergei Aleshkov raised morale by singing poems and songs, and during battles he carried ammunition to the front-line troops (keeping them supplied), as well as passed-on messages and delivered mail. The soldiers of the Red Army treated Sergei Aleshkov as if he were their own son. However, the commanding officer of the Regiment – Major Vorobyov – eventually adopted Sergei Aleshkov, and even accredited Sergei with helping him meet his beloved wife – Nina – a nurse. This was after a bomb had hit the dug-out Major Vorobyov was operating from during the Battle for Stalingrad, blocking the entrance and sealing him in. As there was little air, Sergei Aleshkov tried to pull the debris away from the entrance himself, but was not strong enough. Instead, despite the Nazi Germans heavily bombing the area, Sergei Aleshkov ran through the falling bombs and into the surrounding trenches (that were receiving enemy fire), where he told other Red Army soldiers what had happened to Major Vorobyov. In the process, Sergei Aleshkov was shot down (along with many other Red Army soldiers), and was wounded in the legs yet again. After this, a rescue party was immediately sent to rescue Major Vorobyov. After the battle, he was well looked after and cared for by all concerned – as news of his bravery spread throughout the Red Army. For his bravery, Serezha Aleshkov was awarded the Medal for Military Bravery.

On another occasion (whilst stationed on the Dnieper), Sergei Aleshkov spotted two men hiding in straw near-by. After reporting this sighting, it was revealed that these were Nazi German Scouts who were spotting for the fascist artillery and bringing fire down upon the civilian areas. After his military service, and on the orders of the High Command, he was enlisted in the Suvorov School situated in the city of Tula. Although as a youth and young man, he suffered disabilities from his leg injuries, Sergei Aleshkov trained in law, and became a very effective lawyer – always representing the rights and interests of the ordinary people. He eventually worked as a prosecutor and remained a man of honour, constantly fighting for justice. The science of war forever teaches us to value honour, conscience and brotherhood

Capitalist Russia and the October Massacre (1993)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Soviet Union was destroyed by Mikhail Gorbachev during the middle to late 1980’s. He was in many ways the culmination of the corrosive Trotskyite tendency within the USSR established by Nikita Khrushchev in the 1950’s, from which Communist Russia never recovered. Trotskyism is opposed to Marxist-Leninism, and whilst mimicking various aspects of the rhetoric of Scientific Socialism, its central core ideology evolves around co-operating with the capitalist system, and various aspects of its fascistic thinking. As a consequence, Trotsky dedicated his life to formulating an ideology that could destroy the USSR. The USSR finally collapsed due to mishandling within, and Western pressure from out, between 1989 – 1991. This betrayal of the Soviet people and the Communist Bloc in Eastern Europe would eventually lead to the death of millions due to the sudden withdrawal of Welfare Systems and ‘free’ Medical Systems. In Russia alone, the population unnaturally dropped by 5.9 million people between 1991-1999 – due to starvation and medical neglect. None of this barbarity is reported in the Western press, as it is thought to be a price worth paying, as a means to get rid of one of the world’s major challenges to capitalist tyranny.

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

In 1993, certain Russian politicians tried to stop the counter-revolution and prevent the complete collapse of the Soviet System – much of which was still functioning despite the ‘official’ dissolving of the USSR at the end of 1991. The US President Bill Clinton, and the British Prime Minister John Major (together with many other European leaders), called for the rapid ‘opening-up’ of all Russian markets, and the end of all Socialist entities, enterprises and provisions. This ‘de-Socialisation’ was to happen over-night, with no interim methods to ease the transition from ‘free’ assistance to ‘private’ services. The Western stooge – Boris Yeltsin – (a drunk who had become the leader of capitalist Russia), was ordered by the West to put a stop to this attempt, and forcibly ‘breakup’ the crowds of tens of thousands of people carrying Red Flags that had spontaneously surrounded the Russian parliament building – demanding the immediate re-establishment of the Soviet System.

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The result was a massacre of ordinary Russian citizens who were peacefully exercising their democratic right to protest. This massacre was carried-out by the Russian military which just two years earlier had been a part of the Soviet Red Army. How could these units (whose fore-fathers brought Lenin to power and destroyed Nazi German fascism), turn their guns on the Russian people whilst following orders given by corrupt capitalists? More to the point, why did the Red Army not put up a fight in 1989 to defeat the coup that brought Boris Yeltsin to power? I hear that certain elements of the Red Army did try to resist the Counter-Revolution – but were over-ruled by high-ranking military officers who were already in the pockets of the corrupt politicians. The Red Army in 1989 was following orders – even though those order came from corrupt origins, but in 1993, things were very different. The new regiments of the capitalist Russian forces had the choice to make a stand against capitalist tyranny – but by and large they refused to do so. This is an astonishing decision when it is considered that many of these men had been brought-up in the Soviet System, and had been soldiers in the Socialist Red Army. By siding with Boris Yeltsin’s despicable anti-Socialist regime – these men of the Russian capitalist forces betrayed the 1917 Russian Revolution, betrayed the Russian people, and through their murderous actions of the 3rd and 4th of October, 1993, ultimately betrayed the entirety of humanity and the International Working Class.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

If this massacre (that killed and wounded thousands of men, women and children) had happened under the Soviet Regime, the US and European capitalist countries would have made a ‘mythic’ example of these circumstances, and used the outcome in films, books, pamphlets and education courses – to teach about the supposed ‘undemocratic’ and ‘tyrannical’ nature of the Soviet System – but as the ‘massacre’ was in the service of furthering capitalist interests in Russia (by disempowering the Russian people), it is all but ‘ignored’ in the Western media, and not taught in any college or university. Even after President Putin came to power, and re-invigorated the Russian Army to remember and celebrate its ‘Communist’ past, the massacre of October, 1993, is still treated as if it never happened, such is the shame it induces in the collective Russian psyche. innocent Russian men, women and children fighting to defend the achievements of the 1917 Russian Revolution were mowed down by tanks and machine guns that were also previously used to defend exactly the same ‘Revolution’. All this murdering and maiming was in the service of a Western capitalist system that today seeks to invade Russia and depict its people as racially inferior. This is the same Western capitalist system that since President Barack Obama – has openly supported neo-Nazi (and anti-Russian) regimes in the Ukraine and throughout Eastern Europe, with NATO Forces acting aggressively all around the geographical borders of modern Russia.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

As matters transpired, tens of thousands of ordinary Russians formed voluntary ‘Red Army’ units (a ‘new’ Immortal Regiment) that deployed around the Russian Parliament building in Moscow, in an attempt to protect the pro-Soviet politicians inside who were trying to prevent the collapse of the USSR. Many Russian citizens carried Red Flags, built barricades in the streets, and armed themselves with all kinds of weaponry (although many fought with their bare-hands). They were confronted initially by para-military police, and then by the Russian armed forces that bombarded the Parliament building and opened fire on the protesting crowds. There are rumours that certain Russian military units intended to support the people, but their officers were arrested and the men dis-armed and imprisoned before they could mobilise. Russian people today take to the streets to commemorate this terrible event – but it is an event that still receives no official recognition – even though the modern Russian military forces now eulogize past military victories against Nazi Germany. What the modern Russian forces did during October, 1993 (in the service of capitalism) was nothing less than an act of brutal fascism and terrorism.

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Finally, a word must be mentioned about the elements of the Russian armed forces that did attempt to protect the pro-Soviet politicians in the Parliament building. Their officers ordered that the old Soviet ‘Red Army’ insignia be used to replace the ‘new’ insignia of capitalist Russia on their uniforms, and that Soviet Red Flags be flown. They held-out for two days whilst the building they were in was comprehensively bombarded by Russian tanks and artillery. These ‘Red Army’ troops had no access to reinforcements, medical care or supplies, and it is still unknown how many of these brave soldiers died performing their duty trying to protect the Revolution. The political and socio-economic forces at work in Russia at that time had no respect for the will of the Russian people, and was quite prepared to ‘kill’ in the name of capitalist greed. This demonstrates the ‘seductive’ nature of capitalist greed, and how its brutal nature is all but ignored for the unjust aggrandisement and enriching of a corrupt few. As matters stand, hardly anyone in the West knows about this terrible and murderous event.

Dr Alfred Lukyanovich Yarbus (1914 -1986) – How a Soviet Red Army Soldier Progressed Perceptual Science

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD

Translater’s Note: Alfred Yarbus was a typical product of the Soviet Education System. Fully inaccordance with the strictures of Scientific Socialism, Soviet Society was organised around the scientific principle which was considered the most effective manner through which humanity could evolve and develop technology and understanding in all fields of scientific endeavour. The onus, very much influeced by ‘Futurism’, was to develop such an advanced and progressive scientific understanding and technology, that all of society’s ills could eventually be eleviated and erdicated. On a personal level, this included the curing of all illnesses, and the development of technoogy so as to make life better for each individual. This approach also included extensive research and development in the area of disability, mobility, and life-fulfilment (the Soviet Union developed the world’s first motorised wheelchair, for instance). Despite Albert Einstein declaring Socialism to be the most logical form of socio-economic organisation, and the fact that Soviet technology was often decades ahead of the capitalist West (including in the areas of flight and space exploration), this has not stopped those mindless followers of US Cold War rhetoric declaring Soviet Science to be ‘corrupt’. The example of Alfred Yarbus (and many like him), prove this type of capitalist ignorance to be not only ‘wrong’, but also ‘pathological’ in its structure and intent. (ACW 3.10.2017)

Dr Alfred Lukyanovich Yarbus [Альфред Лукьянович ЯРБУС } (1914 -1986) was a former Red Army soldier during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), and saw action against the Nazi German invaders and the Japanese fascists. After the war, he became famous as a scientist and a psychologist who made a number of significnt discoveries about eye movements and human perception. Many of his most interesting results were published in a book, translated into English and published in 1967 as Eye Movements and Vision. He was born on April 3, 1914 in Moscow, and under the Soviet System of ‘free’ education, he received the best tutoring. In 1932, he finished his basic schooling. In 1933, he studied drawing and design courses. After graduation, he worked as a draftsman at the Central Institute of Aviation Motors and the Moscow Aviation Technical School. In 1935, he entered the Physics Department of Moscow University. He graduated from the University in 1941. For about a year he worked as an engineer at Plant No. 633.

From 1942 to 1946, he saw action in the ranks of the Soviet Red Army. During this period, he graduated from Leningrad Military Engineering School and was promoted to junior lieutenant. On the Karelian Front, he commanded a pontoon-bridge platoon. In 1944, his Unit was transferred to the area of ​​Vladivostok. There, during the war with Japan, he worked at the headquarters at the front, as an engineer topographer. In 1946, he was demobilised as the Soviet military was scaled-down. From 1946 to 1947, he worked as a junior researcher at the Institute of Crystallography – which was a part of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1947, he enrolled in graduate school, from which he graduated in 1950, receiving the degree of Candidate of Science. From 1950 to 1963, he worked in the Laboratory of Physiological Optics at the Institute of Biophysics of the USSR Academy of Sciences. First in the post of junior researcher, and then as a senior fellow. In 1963, (together with the laboratory) he was transferred to the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1964 he received a Doctorate in Biological Sciences.

AL Yarbus – was one of the greatest specialists in our country, specialising in the field of the ‘psychophysics’ of vision. His work was related to the development of the original technology that involved the recording of eye movements as electrical impulses (recorded through special ‘sucker’ devices affixed to the skin). The same technique was used to record an image that was immobile relative to the retina. This allowed him to make a number of discoveries concerning the ’empty field’ (or perceptual ‘blind spot’) and its properties. The results obtained in studying the patterns of eye movement, as well as studying the properties of the ’empty field’, were essential for understanding the mechanisms of the organ of vision.

The work of Alfred Yarbus regarding the precise recording of eye movements, and perceptual experiments involving a still image relative to the retina, gained wide popularity within the Soviet Union and abroad. The sound scientifc findings obtained are summarized in the monograph ‘The Role of Eye Movements in the Process of Vision’ (Nauka, 1965), which has already been re-published four times abroad (under the title ‘Eye movements and vision’).

Since 1975, Alfred Yarbus was occupied with the scientific analysis of the perceptual construction of space and colour within the human mind (as detected through the eye). He was the first to confirm that the human retina possesses a ‘blind-spot’ in its sensory aparatus, whereby the human mind ‘fills-in’ the gap in missing data by ‘adding’ information not present in the original perception. During one of his most famous experiments, Alfred Yarbus asked numerous participants to look at the Russion oil painting ‘An Unexpected Visitor’ (painted by Ilya Repin in 1884), recording what each said they saw:

PZ 401-039-740

Participants recalled completely different aspects of this picture – including details that were not present. No one ‘perceived’ the entire picture correctly or within its proper context. Instead, the mind carefully selected ‘small’ areas relevant to the observer at the point in time the painting was looked at. This meant that each participant ‘perceived’ only that which their minds thought was important to them at the time of observation – filtering-out all other informtion. Some ‘beliefs’ were so strong at the point of observation, that the minds concerned ‘projected’ images and colours that did not exist in the original painting. The subjects were asked to look at this picture in a number of different ways, including a) examining the painting freely, b) estimating the material circumstances of the family, c) assessing the ages of the characters, d) determining the activities of the family prior to the visitor’s arrival, e) recalling the clothes of the characters, and f) surmising how long the visitor had been away from the family. Alfred Yarbus was able to ‘track’ how the various participants used their eye-movements (in different patterns of interrogation) to seek-out and acquire different types of information. Belief affected perception, and the mind fabricated information when blind-spots were present.

Альфред Лукьянович

родился 3 апреля 1914 г. в Москве.

В 1932 г. закончил школу. В 1933 г. учился на чертежно-конструкторских курсах. После окончания курсов работал чертежником в Центральном Институте Авиационного Моторостроения и Московском авиационном техникуме.

В 1935 г. поступил на физический факультет Московского университета. Закончил Университет в 1941 г. Около года проработал инженером на заводе № 633.

С 1942 по 1946 гг. находился в рядах Красной Армии. В этот период закончил Ленинградское Военно-инженерное училище и получил звание младшего лейтенанта. На Карельском фронте командовал понтонно-мостовым взводом. В 1944 г. вместе со своей частью был переброшен в район Владивостока. Там, во время войны с Японией, работал при штабе фронта инженером топографом.

В 1946 г. демобилизовался.

С 1946 по 1947 гг. работал мл.н.сотрудником в Институте Кристаллографии АН СССР. В 1947 г. был зачислен в аспирантуру, которую закончил в 1950 г. и получил ученую степень кандидата наук.

С 1950 по 1963 гг. работал в лаборатории физиологической оптики Института Биофизики АН СССР, сперва в должности мл.н.сотрудника, а затем – ст.н.сотрудника. В 1963 г. вместе с лабораторией был переведен в Институт проблем передачи информации АН СССР. В 1964 г. получил ученую степень доктора биологических наук.

А.Л.Ярбус – одby из крупнейших специалистов в нашей стране в области психофизики зрения. Его работа была связана с разработкой оригинальной методики “присосок”, использованной для регистрации движения глаз.  Эта же методика использована для создания изображения, неподвижного относительно сетчатки. Она позволила сделать ряд открытий, касающихся “пустого поля” и его свойств. Результаты, полученные при изучении закономерностей движения глаз, а также при исследовании свойств “пустого поля”, имеют существенное значение для понимания механизмов работы органа зрения.

Работы А.Л.Ярбуса как по регистрации движений глаз, так и по опытам с изображением, неподвижным относительно сетчатки, приобрели широкую известность в пределах Советского Союза и за рубежом. Полученные материалы суммированы в монографии “Роль движений глаз в процессе зрения” (Изд.”Наука”, 1965 г.), которая уже 4 раза переиздавалась за рубежом (“Eye movements and vision”).

С 1975 г. А.Л.Ярбус занимался построением пространства цветовых ощущений, в котором существуют “цвета” (излучений и окрасок) и “антицвета”, удобно описываемые средствами векторной алгебры. Особое внимание в работе было уделено так называемым “слепым” участкам сетчатки (на периферии глаза), влияющим на ощущения, получаемые со “зрячих” участков.

Tank Museum (Dorset) – Soviet and Other Relevant Tanks (26.8.2017)

Tank Museum (Dorset)

This place is huge and designed for a family to spend an entire day enjoying the facilities and learning about the history, technical design and purpose of each exhibit as it is presented within its particular epoch and/or theatre of action, etc. As our time was limited, we focused upon the WWII section, and we did this because of our family’s interest in Soviet (and other Communist) tanks and their use in the war against International Fascism (which includes the imperial Japanese military action in North-east China from 1931 [ending only with the Japanese surrender to the USSR in that theatre 1945], the Spanish Civil War [1936-1939], the Soviet-Japanese War [1938-1939], the Soviet-Finnish War [1938-1939], and the UK, US and USSR against Nazi Germany and her Axis supporters [1939-1945]). This should not forget the fact that the UK government (and others) did not officially support the Spanish Civil War and were for years indifferent to the suffering in China, or the fact that Adolf Hitler was handed Czechoslovakia by the European Allies as early as 1938, as an act of attempted appeasement (without the knowledge or agreement of the Czech peoples). This complex situated included a Poland entering into a ‘non-aggression’ pact with Nazi Germany in 1934, before Hitler invaded the eastern or ‘Germanic’ part that country in 1939 (with the USSR annexing the ‘Slavic’ western part of Poland at the sometime in a bid to protect the Slavic people living in that part of the country from the genocidal and racist policies of Hitler’s Nazi regime – a point often [and deliberately] omitted by many anti-Soviet historians). The Western Allies (led by the UK) declared war on Nazi Germany with that regime’s invasion of Poland in 1939 – but not because of the defensive actions of the USSR at the time. Of course, it is no secret that both before, during and after WWII, the US, UK and other European Allies conspired behind the scenes to ‘bring-down’ the Socialist regime of the USSR – a policing ending in the Cold War and the eventual collapse of that regime in 1991. Finally, Finland was originally a part of Czarist Russia – but was granted sovereignty and independence in December, 1917, by VI Lenin immediately following the success of the Russian Revolution. From that moment onward, Finland operated as a base for rightwing and pro-capitalist forces attempting to over-throw the ‘Soviet’ regime, and became a staunch ally of Hitler’s Nazi Germany from 1933 until its demise in 1945 (where Finland escaped any ramifications for its support for Nazi German genocide in the USSR). In 1938, the USSR proposed that Finland be given a large tract of land in exchange for a much smaller tract of land that Soviet forces could defend more easily, should non-Socialist forces attack the USSR from the direction of Finland. As Finland was receiving military and economic aid from both the capitalist West and Nazi Germany in 1938 and 1939 (as a possible corridor for an invasion and destruction of the USSR), The Finnish government refused the Soviet offer (considered ‘fair’ by most historians), and a brutal but short-lived war ensued which saw the defeat of ‘fascist’ Finland (which routinely marked its tanks with a version of the Nazi German swastika), with the USSR prevailing in 1939. In 1941, the fascist-supporting regime of Finland joined Nazi Germany and its Axis allies (i.e. including troops from Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy, Croatia and Slovakia – whilst receiving vital [natural] resources from countries such as Sweden and Portugal, etc). Although WWII came to an ‘official’ end in May, 1945 in Europe (and in August-September, 1945 in the Far-East), the USSR had to fight a neo-Nazi insurgency in the Ukraine from 1945-1947 (led by non-surrendered Nazi German officers and their ethnic Ukrainian supporters), which flared-up on occasion to at least 1955, as well as a major neo-Nazi uprising in Hungary in 1956 (which was crushed by the Soviet Red Army), but presented in the then anti-Soviet West, as a ‘fight for freedom’.  Obviously, neither myself nor my family support (or ‘eulogise’) any imperialist wars (whilst regretting and respecting every death), but we do believe that the working class has a right to defend itself against fascism – which is a product of capitalism in decay. Of course, we also thoroughly ‘reject’ the current tendency in he capitalist West to equate fascism with Scientific Socialism, and to attempt to remove the ‘guilt’ for fascism from the capitalist camp. Fascism (and racism) grow-out of the inherent inequalities operating within capitalism, whilst the teachings of Communism – whilst advocating ‘internationalism’ and ‘anti-racism’ is obviously its antithesis. To its credit, although the Tank Museum is in no way pro-Communist, and is fully supportive of the ‘rightness’ of ‘bourgeois’ and ‘imperialist’ wars, (a position my family firmly reject), nevertheless, I would say that the technical assessment of Soviet (or Communist tank) technology was ‘fair’ and certainly far from the usual misrepresentation associated with Cold War rhetoric. We teach our children that war is wrong – but that sometimes wars need to be thought in ‘self-defence’ – until humanity evolves beyond this stupid and disastrous manner of interacting. It is also important for the younger generation to realise the sacrifices and destruction endured by China, the USSR and Europe in the 20th century fight against the forces of International Fascism. Of particular note amongst the relevant tanks we found were the Soviet T26 Model 1933 Light Infantry Tank – a copy and improvement (with official permission) of the British Vickers-Armstrong Marl I Tank, the captured Soviet T34/76 Tank (replete with Finnish Swastikas), and the Japanese Light Tank 95 Ha-Go (bearing a striking resemblance to a Dalek from the science-fiction show Dr Who – which gave the Imperial Japanese Army an edge over lightly armed peasant or guerilla resistance, or poorly armed European colonial troops as it successfully advanced across Asia both prior to, and during WWII, but which was no match (ans virtually useless) against a Soviet armour which had evolved in the European theatre to fight the might of Nazi German ingenuity.

The Rightwing Polish

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Nazi Germans used ‘Sonder Kommando’ Units in their death camps. Usually, these ‘Units’ were comprised of collaborating Polish Jews and they assisted in every part of the extermination process – from arrival to the dead bodies being burnt. Churchill had encouraged a rightwing Polish government in exile in London – which was not concerned about the deportation from Poland of Jews, gays or the disabled – but took exception to Germans running their country! The real Polish government, however, was Socialist and living in exile in the USSR – assisting in the raising and training of Polish volunteer military units to assist the Red Army’s fight against Nazi Germany. However, when the Polish Jews rose-up in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943 – Churchill (and the rightwing Polish government in London) refused to support them, because it was felt that Jews were not Polish, and prone to holding leftwing viewpoints. Churchill let the Jewish uprising be destroyed by the Nazi Germans – but he did work on a new plan that involved the ethnic Poles rising-up in Warsaw (a year later), in an attempt to quickly get the rightwing Polish government in London back into power in Poland BEFORE the Soviet Red Army arrived on the scene! Churchill viewed this gambit as a means to prevent a Socialist government in Poland. This plan failed when the Nazi Germans quickly put-down this new threat before the Soviets could fight their way into the city. As matters transpired, it was the Soviet Red Army that eventually fought its way into Warsaw – freed the Jews, freed the Polish people in general, and installed a Socialist Polish government. However, racism has always been a problem in Poland – particularly anti-Semitism, but also anti-Slavic (i.e. ‘anti-Russian’) prejudice. This situation led to a permanent rightwing resistance to ‘Socialism’ that exists in Poland to this day (alongside the usual racist attitudes). Today, the modern Polish State plays-down the Jewish Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, but eulogises the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 – whilst simultaneously demonising their eventual liberators – the Soviet Red Army!

Joseph Stalin Reconstructed – an Interview with Yakov Dzhugashvili (2013)

(Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

‘The lies about Stalin are an attempt by the current elites

to justify the plundering of Soviet heritage.’

Yakov Dzhugashvili (Great Grandson of Stalin)

Interview between Dmitry Fakowski & Yakov Dzhugashvili

Lies Like a Virus

Dmitry Fakowski: Are you annoyed and frustrated with all the anti-Stalin hysteria prevalent in the global media today?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Lies offend me, and I expose these lies with all the means at my disposal, whilst trying to convey the truth to the people. Stalinization is the education of people – an explanation of what Joseph Stalin wanted to do and what he managed to do, including an assessment of who resisted his reforms and why. Without exposing the prevalent lies about Joseph Stalin (and the distorted history of the USSR of that period), no correct understanding of Stalinization is possible. Today, Joseph Stalin is dear to everyone with correct understanding, and for whom such words as Justice, motherland, and the people are not empty.

The fact is that the lies about Joseph Stalin (and the USSR of that period) were created with the aim of undermining the authority of the leader of the country, so that any attempt to comprehend the nature of the real phenomena that occurred during his life (and the important role he played in these events) is rejected by the people. These lies are not just directed against Joseph Stalin or his relatives, but, above all, are against the integrity of the Russian people. Lies about Stalin try to deprive the Russians (and, with them, those nations that together with the Russians built the world’s first society free from capitalist parasites) the ability to resist both external and internal threats. The lies about Joseph Stalin are a virus created by the inhuman fascists, as a means to destroy the defensive mechanism of the people, together with the ability to even recognise the existence or presence of a danger. Finally, the lies about him are an attempt by the current elites to justify the looting of the progressive material, cultural and spiritual wealth accumulated through the collective hard labour of the Soviet people.

Georgian Youth do not Know the Russian Language.

Dmitry Fakowski: In Georgia, do the people remember Joseph Vissarionovich with love and respect?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: The attitude of the people toward Joseph Stalin in his homeland today, is determined by their awareness of the leader of the country, and about the history of the USSR of that period. These are the two most deplorable topics, and to understand them you need to have access to specific literature, but this literature is written mostly in the Russian language. The contemporary powers in Georgia have been eradicating Russian language from Georgia for almost a decade now, and have achieved ‘effective’ results in this area. This deliberate eradication of the Russian language now means that the younger generation cannot read, write or speak Russian. But even that part of the population that is fluent in the Russian language (and does not consider it ‘the language of the occupiers’) and which continues to get involved in world culture through the Russian language media, is not particularly interested in the topic of Stalinism. Most Georgians today, do not even have a desire to deal with these issues, as they are overwhelmed by their extremely unhappy material situation (since the disastrous collapse of Communism). This includes the monstrous racist anti-Soviet and anti-Russian and anti-Stalin propaganda, which pours around the clock from two dozen TV channels in Georgia which serve just four million people – two dozen channels! It is necessary to have a stable psyche and have a serious motivation in order not to lose heart and resist in such conditions. Therefore, we must admit that in Georgia the Stalinists do not influence the mood and consciousness of the people in any significant way at the moment. Despite such a sad state of affairs, the positive image of Joseph Stalin (in articles, comments and observations) remains strong – like a powerful ray of light piercing the minds and hearts of the people, forcing them to think about this great man and his progressive deeds.

Reviving the Just Reputation of Stalin without Violence.

Dmitry Fakowski: Do you possess a Russian passport?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: I am a citizen of Russia, and moreover, I am a member of a political pressure group, pushing for the holding of a Referendum on the adoption of ‘Amendments’ to the Constitution (and Law) in modern Russia, regarding the ‘Responsibility of the Authorities’ toward the well-being of the people. This is effectively a change in Law.

Dmitry Fakowski: What is the essence of these proposed new Laws?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Life is arranged unfairly throughout modern Russia. This is an important observation, as injustice emanates from the centre of political power. Power can be unjust because it has the potential and opportunity to be unjust, if not tempered by specific Laws that prevent this degeneration. How is political and social justice to be achieved without revolutionary violence? This is easier than it might seem, but first there is a need to get to the root of injustice within the political power structure. Why do the authorities (and their minions) do anything in power? Because they are in no way responsible for the results of their government – they are not punished for the harm done to the people. Why should this be the case? If a driver causes an accident by chance, he or she will be punished, but the authorities do not answer for anything, regardless of what they do (or do not do)! Is this fair? A ‘Referendum’ is needed whereby the people will be asked to decide (through voting) whether the ‘old’ (Soviet) Law (which held politicians directly responsible for their actions whilst in office) is ‘preferable’ to the ‘new’ (Liberal) Law of capitalist Russia (where politicians are not held responsible for their actions whilst In office). If voters prefer the ‘new’ style of government over the ‘old’, then they must answer three further questions which will decide whether the modern behaviour of politicians should be ‘encouraged’, ‘punished’, or be ‘without consequences’. If the voters fully reject the ‘old’ (Soviet) power structure, then the modern system can remain without any change or consequence (and politicians will remain unaccountable for their actions). If the ‘new’ system is positively encouraged, then the President and every Member of the Federal Assembly will be considered a Hero of Russia, and their behaviour will have been vindicated by popular vote. If the voters decide to ‘Punish’ (obviously over specific issues), then the President or any Member of the Federal Assembly could be immediately imprisoned for their actions, over the duration of their time in office.

Dmitry Fakowski: How will the judging be carried-out?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: The (democratic) power of each individual voter will serve exclusively as the ‘judging’ principle, assessing each case separately and entirely upon its positive or negative merits. Each voter will exercise his or her free-will and judgement at the ballot-box. In order for the verdict to be objective, voters need to ask themselves a simple question: has their life improved, deteriorated or has not changed during the period of the government’s rule. It is agreed that this question can be answered by any voter, regardless of his or her education, or cultural level, etc. We citizens take upon ourselves the responsibility to obey the authorities for five years – but at the end of this five year time period – we will judge the authorities on the results of their behaviour in office whilst we were legally subjugated to their rule. This is justice!

The Katyn Case.

Dmitry Fakowski: You have paid special attention to the Katyn case.

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Not so long ago, the Tverskoi Court of Moscow indirectly confirmed that the Germans had shot the Polish officers in 1941. The result of this trial within the State Duma was sensational. No, the suit was denied, but in its decision the judge wrote in black and white twice that the Poles in Katyn were shot in September 1941, by the Nazi Germans (that were occupying the area at the time). This is a great victory! This is no longer a matter of speculative (or ‘Cold War’) distorted  journalism, but rather a matter of common knowledge as established in legal fact, and drawn-up in a document issued by the Courts. I congratulate all honest people. Most importantly, I think honest Poles, for this victory! I advise all the scoundrels, including the Polish ones, to stock-up with validol (an anti-depressant).

Dmitry Fakowski: Who helped you fight during this process?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: In 2009, the publicist Leonid Nikolayevich Zhura contacted me and asked my father (Yevgeny Yakovlevich) to allow him to file a suit to protect the honour and dignity of Joseph Stalin. The suit was filed against the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, because of the publication of an article by Anatoly Yablokov entitled ‘Beria is guilty’. According to the Laws of Russia, only Joseph Stalin’s relative has the right to file such a claim. My father agreed, and Leonid Zhura became the official representative of my father in Court on this case. However, my father found it necessary that his representative, along with Leonid Nikolayevich, should also include Yury Mukhin (www.ymuhin.ru), who was sick and at the hospital, at the beginning of the trial. (The fact that this happened to him is a separate and almost tragic story). Then they were joined by Sergei Emilyevich Strygin, the author of an independent investigation into the Katyn tragedy. For the last three years, this trio has been successfully combatting and suitably horrifying all those ‘fighters against Stalinism’, and were awaiting such a time that they could fulfil their dream of getting these despicable people into a Court of Law! Were these enemies of Joseph Stalin demanding a trial to prove their case? We thought this was excellent, as these people could not prove their case in Court – because their ideas were just lies presented as fact. This has been the case in endless trials in the past, where the real facts were produced, proving the Cold War assertions to be thoroughly false. This track record showed the utter helplessness of the accusers of Joseph Stalin. Unlike the studios of the radio stations Ekho Moskvy, or the editorial office of Novaya Gazeta, in Court our opponents were forced to answer for their lies. Our representatives actively assisted in this, asking different questions, to which these liars were obliged to respond, as required by Law. Historians conducted an amazing work of considerable scale to expose the lies about Joseph Stalin and the history of the USSR. Yuri Mukhin, despite his extreme workload (he also pursued two criminal cases at the same time on the ‘Russian’ article due to its extremism) and despite requiring heart surgery that had to be postponed, managed on the day of the meeting (or immediately afterwards) to write exhaustive reports about what was happening there. Now, these reports are combined into a book entitled ‘The trial of Stalin’. I note that the media, both official and allegedly oppositional, kept amicable silence about these processes. Even Ekho Moskvy and Novaya Gazeta preferred to remain silent, although they were direct participants in the Court.

Dmitry Fakowski: You had a high-profile trial against Vladimir Pozner?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: I was able to personally attend to this process, and had the ‘happiness’ to see this guru of ‘TV-boltology’ in the immediate vicinity. Ironically, the process took place on December 21st – the birthday of Joseph Stalin. The bottom line is this: Vladimir Pozner, in his traditional line at the end of one of the broadcasts, accused Joseph Stalin of the execution of Polish officers in Katyn. When he learned about the lawsuit, he said on the air at Ekho Moskvy, that he was ready to prove in Court the involvement of Joseph Stalin in the shooting of the Poles (which he mistakenly thought was ‘documented’). Arriving at the Court session, accompanied by two lawyers (one of whom was clearly on friendly terms with the judge), he laid out – on the table – two of four documents from the most famous folder of fakes in the Katyn case. The judge reacted immediately, and made it clear that these document were not historically valid, and should be ‘hidden’ far away and forgotten about by him. Following this disastrous start, Vladimir Pozner’s case fell apart, and along with his ‘forgotten’ documents – his terrible promises to reveal the involvement of Joseph Stalin in the execution of the Poles, also disappeared. Instead, he began to defend his constitutional right to spread gossip, (i.e. – personal opinion as ‘fact’). I note that all the ‘fighters against Stalinism’ in the trials, instead of giving specific arguments in favour of their statements, were engaged precisely in upholding their right to spreading (false) personal opinions. During one of the breaks, there was a dispute with Vladimir Pozner about the ‘documents’ brought to court. It became clear that this was the first time he had seen these papers in his life. Moreover, he had never even heard that these papers were fakes. What does it mean? This means that Vladimir Pozner, knowing about the subject of the upcoming Court dispute, and having at least two weeks in Court at his disposal, did not even deign to spend at least an hour of his time and ‘google’ this topic on the Internet. So, for example, my comment on one of the ‘documents’, namely, ‘Beria’s letter’: or ‘Could Lavrenti Beria have ordered something’, and with regards to troika power-sharing – he could have searched ‘in 1940, if the troika were abolished in 1938?’, Vladimir Pozner had done none of this and could only blurt out: ‘Perhaps’ when questioned in Court – acting like a guru with (imagined) telepathic powers!

Stalin the Movie

Dmitry Fakowski: What do you think about the western-style film about Joseph Stalin, to be shot by Alexei Balabanov?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: He promised to make a film about my great-grandfather, stating ‘one of the heroes’ of the picture will be Joseph Stalin, which would portray Stalin not as an idol in the years of his youth – but rather as a bandit, a thief and renegade from the (Czarist) Law. Was he really a thief running from the Law? It is not proven that he personally participated in the robberies – but it is also not proved that he did not participate. However, this kind of nonsense is not politically relevant or historically accurate. Joseph Stalin was not a Western-style gun-slinger (in a Hollywood movie), but was a great Revolutionary leader. We must be careful because all great lies have a firm basis in small, foundational lies. If lies are told about Joseph Stalin – it does not insult me ​​personally. This is rather the humiliation of the entire Russian people, who (through Stalin’s leadership) built a powerful industrial country in the shortest time, won a vicious war against a fascist army led by Nazi Germany – but which was comprised of armies from many other European countries (after all, Hitler had many allies in the world). Finally, such lies about Stalin insult the very Soviet people that conquered space.

Fabrication of the ‘Holodomor’ Famine.

Dmitry Fakowski: In Ukraine, the anti-Stalin policy focuses on the famine of 1932-1933 …

Yakov Dzhugashvili: This is what Professor Grover Furr says in his book covering ‘61 of Khrushchev’s lies’: ‘In the 1930s, Ukrainian nationalists (with the help of Nazi Germans) began fabricating the so-called ”Holodomor” famine’. Now, the late Canadian researcher Douglas Tottle proves this in his book “Lies, Hunger and Fascism: The Myth of the Ukrainian Genocide from Hitler to Harvard” (1987). I read an article in 1987 in which he debunked the lies of Ukrainian nationalists, I was amazed at what Douglas Tottle wrote and went to Toronto, Canada, to meet with him. In 1988, American journalist Jeff Coplon, interviewed him (along with others) for his article ‘In Search of the Soviet Holocaust: A Hunger 55 Years Ago’. A lie about the so-called ‘Holodomor’ is necessary for Ukrainian nationalists to justify their co-operation with the Nazis – and the killing of millions of their compatriots, (including Jews). These fascists killed up to 100,000 Polish citizens during the so-called Volyn massacre. Polish researchers Vladislav and Eva Semashko, Ukrainian-Canadian researcher Viktor Polishchuk and Russian historian Alexander Dyukov – all precisely document this massacre. In order to justify even a small part of these crimes, nationalists must insist that the USSR was worse than the Nazis and Ukrainian nationalists, and that there is nothing worse than Communism – stating that virtually ‘anything else would be better’. Similarly false stories about Soviet atrocities are also propagated by the right-wing nationalists of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Usually they are based on sources of Nazi propaganda, which are most often simply reprinted. The ‘Historical Memory’ Foundation of Alexander Dyukov publishes works on the topic of these falsifications.

The great grandson of Joseph Stalin is sure that the exposure of anti-Stalin lies is necessary not only for the restoration of historical justice, but also for restoring to our (Slavic) peoples a protective mechanism that shields us against dangerous ideological aggressions, because the knowledge of our history grants us the ability to distinguish lies from the truth, the original from the fake. This truth about the USSR and Joseph Stalin is one of the foundations that builds such a protective mechanism – which benefits the well-being of the people.

Яков Джугашвили: Ложь о Сталине – попытка нынешних элит оправдать разграбление советского наследия (2013)

Источник: stalingrad-info.ru

Правнук Иосифа Сталина – художник и общественный деятель Яков Джугашвили – рассказал, почему продолжит бороться за правду о своём великом прадеде, заявив прямо:  Коба нужен нам и сегодня.

Ложь как вирус

— Антисталинская истерия, царящая сегодня в глобальных СМИ, Вас сильно напрягает?

— Ложь меня оскорбляет, и я эту ложь всеми имеющимися у меня средствами разоблачаю и пытаюсь донести до людей правду. Сталинизация – это просвещение людей, объяснение того, что хотел сделать Иосиф Сталин, что ему удалось сделать, кто и почему сопротивлялся его реформам. Без разоблачения лжи об Иосифе Сталине и истории СССР того периода невозможна никакая сталинизация. Сегодня Иосиф Сталин дорог всем, для кого такие слова, как Справедливость, Отечество, Народ — не пустые звуки.

Дело в том что, ложь об Иосифе Сталине и СССР того периода создавалась с целью подрыва авторитета лидера страны, чтобы людей отталкивала любая попытка осмыслить природу явлений произошедших в период его жизни и его роль в этих событиях. Эта ложь направлена не против Иосифа Сталина или его родственников, а, в первую очередь, против Русского народа. Ложью о нём пытаются лишить Русских (а вместе с ними и те народы, которые вместе с Русским строили первое в мире общество свободное от паразитов) способности противостоять как внешним, так и внутренним угрозам. Ложь об Иосифе Сталине — это созданный недочеловеками вирус, разрушающий защитный механизм народа, ответственный за распознавание опасности. Наконец, ложь о нём — это попытка нынешних элит оправдать разграбление того добра, которое было сохранено и приумножено Советским народом, – говорит Яков Джугашвили.

Грузинская молодежь не знает русского языка

— В Грузии Иосифа Виссарионовича помнят, любят?

— Отношение людей к Иосифу Сталину у него на родине сегодня определяется их информированностью о лидере страны и о СССР того периода. Это две самые оболганные темы, и чтобы разобраться в них нужно иметь доступ к специфической литературе, а эта литература в основном русскоязычная. Власть в Грузии вот уже почти десять лет вытесняет из Грузии русский язык и добилась «неплохих» результатов в этом деле: молодое поколение практически не знает русский язык. Но даже та часть населения, которая не считает его «языком оккупантов» и продолжает приобщаться к мировой культуре посредством русского языка, не особо интересуется темой сталинизма. У большинства грузин сегодня нет даже желания разбираться с этими вопросами, так как они подавлены своим крайне нерадостным материальным положением, а также той чудовищной по своей подлости антисоветской (а по сути — антирусской) и антисталинской пропагандой, которая льётся с ТВ, а в Грузии на четыре миллиона человек — два десятка каналов! Надо обладать устойчивой психикой и иметь серьёзную мотивацию, чтобы в таких условиях не унывать и сопротивляться. Поэтому, надо признать, что в Грузии сталинисты никак не влияют на настроение и сознание народа. Несмотря на столь грустное положение дел, положительный образ Иосифа Сталина — в статьях, репликах, — подобно мощному лучу света пронзает умы и сердца людей, заставляя их задуматься об этом человеке и его делах.

Как возродить сталинскую справедливость без насилия

— У Вас есть российский паспорт?

— Я – гражданин России, более того – участник инициативной группы по проведению референдума по принятию поправок к Конституции и закона об «Ответственности власти» в обеспечение этих поправок.

— В чём их суть?

— Жизнь устроена несправедливо. И несправедливость идет от власти. Власть несправедлива потому, что у нее есть возможность быть несправедливой. Как достичь справедливости без революционного насилия? Это просто, но нужно зреть в корень этой несправедливости власти. Почему члены власти и их приспешники творят во власти всё, что угодно? Потому, что они никак не отвечают за результаты своего правления — никак не наказываются за вред, нанесенный народу. Водителя за аварию, которая произошла по случайности, накажут, а власть ни за что не отвечает, что бы она ни натворила! Разве это справедливо? Нужен закон, согласно которому на всех выборах каждый избиратель кроме бюллетеней с новым составом власти получит проект вердикта старому, сменяемому составу власти, а в этом вердикте будет три строчки: «Достойна поощрения», «Достойна наказания» и «Без последствий». Если большинство избирателей решит отпустить старый состав власти без последствий, то власть оставит свои полномочия как сейчас — без последствий для себя. Если большинство избирателей решит поощрить власть, то Президент или каждый член Федерального собрания станет Героем России. А если избиратели решат «Достойна наказания», то Президент или каждый член Федерального собрания сядут в тюрьму на срок своего пребывания у власти.

— Как будем судить?

— Судить власть каждый избиратель будет исключительно из собственного убеждения в ее вине и заслугах. А для того чтобы вердикт был объективным, от избирателей требуется ответить самим себе на простой вопрос: улучшилась, ухудшилась или не изменилась их жизнь за период правления данной власти. Согласитесь, что на этот вопрос сможет ответить любой избиратель, вне зависимости от его образования, культурного уровня и т.п. Мы, граждане, берём на себя ответственность подчиняться власти, но раз в пять лет мы будем судить власть за результаты этого нашего ей подчинения. Вот это и есть справедливость!

Катынское дело

— Особое внимание Вы уделяете Катынскому делу.

— Не так давно Тверской суд Москвы косвенно подтвердил, что польских офицеров в 1941 году расстреляли немцы. Итог суда с Государственной Думой оказался сенсационным. Нет, в иске было отказано, но в своём решении судья чёрным по белому дважды написала, что поляков в Катыни расстреляли в сентябре 1941 года, т.е. — немцы. Это большая победа! Это уже не публицистика, а документ, в котором общеизвестность этого факта установлена в судебном порядке. Я поздравляю всех честных людей. И, главное, честных поляков, с этой победой! А всем подлецам, в том числе и польским, советую запастись валидолом.

— Кто Вам помогает бороться на процессе?

— В 2009 году со мной связался публицист Леонид Николаевич Жура и попросил, чтобы мой отец Евгений Яковлевич разрешил ему подать иск о защите чести и достоинства Иосифа Сталина. Иск был подан к «Новой газете» за публикацию статьи Анатолия Яблокова «Виновным назначен Берия». По законам России подобный иск имеет право подавать только родственник Иосифа Сталина. Мой отец согласился, и Леонид Жура стал официальным представителем отца в суде по этому делу. Однако отец счёл обязательным, чтобы его представителем вместе с Леонидом Николаевичем был и Юрий Мухин (www.ymuhin.ru), который к началу процесса был болен и лежал в больнице. (То, что с ним там приключилось — отдельная история, едва не закончившаяся для него трагически). Затем к ним присоединился Сергей Эмильевич Стрыгин — автор независимого расследования Катынской трагедии. Вот эта тройка уже несколько лет наводит ужас на «борцов со сталинизмом» всего лишь тем, что «осуществляет их мечту!» Они ведь требуют суда над Иосифом Сталиным? Вот вам суд, приходите и доказывайте его «преступления». Судебные процессы показали полную беспомощность обвинителей Иосифа Сталина. В отличие от студии радиостанции «Эхо Москвы» или кабинета редактора «Новой Газеты», в суде наши оппоненты вынуждены были отвечать за свою болтовню. Наши представители им в этом активно помогали, задавая разные вопросы, на которые они были обязаны отвечать, как того и требует законодательство. Историки провели удивительную по своему масштабу работу по разоблачению лжи об Иосифе Сталине и истории СССР. Юрий Мухин, несмотря на крайнюю загруженность (на него самого заведено два уголовных дела по «русской» статье за экстремизм) и перенесённую операцию на сердце, умудрялся в день заседания или сразу после писать исчерпывающие репортажи о том, что там происходило. Сейчас эти репортажи объединены в книгу под названием «Суд над Сталиным». Замечу что СМИ, как официальные, так и якобы оппозиционные, хранили дружное молчание об этих процессах. Даже «Эхо Москвы» и «Новая Газета» предпочли молчать, хотя они были непосредственными участниками суда.

— У Вас был громкий процесс против журналиста Владимира Познера.

— Я смог присутствовать на этом процессе, и имел «счастье» лицезреть этого «гуру ТВ-болтологии» в непосредственной близости. По иронии судьбы, процесс состоялся 21 декабря — в день рождения Иосифа Сталина. Суть вот в чем: Владимир Познер в своей традиционной реплике в конце одной из передач обвинил Иосифа Сталина в расстреле польских офицеров в Катыни. Когда он узнал об иске, то в эфире «Эха Москвы» заявил, что готов доказать в суде причастность Иосифа Сталина к расстрелу поляков документально. Придя на заседание суда в сопровождении двух юристов (одна из которых была явно на дружеской ноге с судьёй), он выложил на стол два из четырех документов из той самой знаменитой папки фальшивок по Катынскому делу. Судья отреагировала сразу же, и дала понять, чтобы этот документ спрятали куда подальше и забыли о нём. Владимир Познерзабыл об этом «документе», как забыл и о своих грозных обещаниях документально доказать причастность Иосифа Сталина к расстрелу поляков. Вместо этого он стал отстаивать своё конституционное право на болтовню, т.е. — личное мнение. Замечу, что все «борцы со сталинизмом» на судебных процессах вместо того, чтобы приводить конкретные доводы в пользу своих утверждений, занимались именно отстаиванием своего права на личное мнение. Во время одного из перерывов произошёл спор с Владимиром Познером относительно принесённых им в суд «документов». Стало ясно, что он видел эти бумажки впервые в жизни. Более того, он никогда даже не слышал о том, что эти бумажки являются фальшивками. Что это значит? А это значит, что Владимир Познер, зная о теме предстоящего судебного спора и имея до начала суда, как минимум, две недели в своём распоряжении, даже не соизволил потратить хотя бы час своего времени и «погуглить» эту тему в Интернете. Так, например, на моё замечание по поводу одного из «документов», а именно «письма Берии»: «Мог ли Лаврентий Берия приказать что-то «тройке» в 1940 году, если тройки были упразднены ещё в 1938 году?», Владимир Познер выпалил: «Мог!» Одно слово — «гуру».

— Как Вы относитесь к вестерну об Иосифе Сталине, который собирается сниматьАлексей Балабанов?

— Он пообещал снять фильм о моём прадеде, заявив, что «одним из героев картины станетИосиф Сталин, предстающий уже окончательно развенчанным идолом в годы юности – бандитом, вором в законе. Он на самом деле был вор в законе – не доказано, что он лично участвовал в ограблениях. Но и не доказано, что не участвовал. Поэтому я могу и так, и так это сделать». Я бы хотел подчеркнуть, что ложь об Иосифе Сталине – это не оскорбление нас, родственников. Она не оскорбляет лично меня. Это – унижение русского народа, построившего за кратчайшие сроки мощную индустриальную страну, выигравшего Войну у армии всей Европы (ведь на стороне Германии воевали не только немцы). Наконец, народа, покорившего в космос.

Фабрикация “голодомора”

— На Украине в антисталинской политике основной акцент делается на голоде 1932-1933 годов…

— Вот что говорит профессор Гровер Фер автор книги «61 Неправда Хрущёва»: «В 1930-х годах украинские националисты с помощью нацистов начали фабрикацию так называемого “голодомора”. Ныне покойный канадский исследователь Дуглас Тотл (Douglas Tottle) доказывает это в своей книге «Ложь, Голод и Фашизм: Миф об украинском геноциде от Гитлера до Гарварда» (Fraud, Famine and Fascism: The Ukraiinian Genocide Myth from Hitler to Harvard (1987). Я еще в 1987 году прочитал статью, в которой тот развенчал ложь украинских националистов. Я был поражен тем, что Дуглас Тотл написал, и поехал в Торонто (Канада), чтобы встретиться с ним. В 1988 году американский журналист Джефф Коплон (Jeff Coplon) взял у него и других интервью для статьи «В поисках советского холокоста: Голод 55-летней давности кормит Правых» ( In Search of a Soviet Holocaust: A 55-Year-Old Famine Feeds the Right). Украинским националистам ложь о так называемом “голодоморе” необходима чтобы оправдать своё сотрудничество с нацистами и убийство ими миллионов своих соотечественников, включая евреев. Они убили до 100 000 польских граждан во время так называемой Волынской резни. Польские исследователи Владислав и Ева Семашко (Wladyslaw and Ewa Siemaszko), украино-канадский исследователь Виктор Полищук и российский историк Александр Дюков документируют эту резню. Для того, чтобы оправдать хотя бы малую часть этих преступлений, националистам необходимо настаивать на том, что СССР был хуже, чем нацисты и украинские националисты, причём был таким плохим, что ничего хуже, чем коммунизм нет и «всё остальное было бы лучше». Подобные лжеистории о советских зверствах также пропагандируются правыми националистами Эстонии, Латвии, и Литвы. Обычно они основаны на источниках нацистской пропаганды, которые чаще всего просто перепечатывают. Фонд «Историческая Память» Александра Дюкова публикует работы по теме этих фальсификаций.

Правнук Иосифа Сталина уверен, что разоблачение антисталинской лжи необходимо не только для восстановления исторической справедливости, но и для того, чтобы вернуть нашим народам защитный механизм оберегающий нас от опасных идеологических агрессий, ведь знание своей истории, умение отличать ложь от правды, подлинник от фальшивки – одна из основ такого защитного механизма народа.

Soviet Red Army Liberates Manchuria (North-East China) August-September – 1945

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

At the behest of the United States under President Roosevelt – the Soviet Red Army Declared War on the fascist Empire of Japan in 9.8.1945 – and fought their way into the Chinese city of Harbin not long after. Although the Japanese Authorities hinted that Japanese Forces (in the form of the 700,000 man Kwantung Army) would offer little resistance, in reality however, Japanese resistance was very strong in places, leading to many Soviet casualties. The Imperial Japanese had been agitating in ‘Manchuria’ (i.e. North-East China) since at least 1931, and their forces had committed continuous atrocities against the local Chinese population, and prisoners of war. The Japanese plan was to eradicate the Chinese presence from North-East China, and use this ‘new’ space to accommodate millions of Japanese migrants. This strategy reflected that of Adolf Hitler and his plans for a ‘Greater Germany’ in the Soviet Union (by eradicating the Slavic race). Following the bloody and brutal Battle of Okinawa, President Roosevelt was not keen on the idea of further large scale conventional battles with the Japanese Imperial Forces, and certainly did not favour the idea of a conventional US military invasion of the Japanese homeland. As he had been discussing with Britain’s Winston Churchill about the possibility of encouraging the destruction of the Soviet Red Army by bleeding it dry against Nazi Germany – a plan was hatched to try and bleed it dry against the Japanese. The problem was that instead of bleeding it dry – the Soviet Red Army grew ever stronger with each campaign and victory! As matters transpired, the Red Army was spectacularly successful in China and the islands off the North-Coast of Japan. The local Chinese population welcomed the Soviets with open arms, and when the campaign was complete, the Soviets handed the captured area over to Mao Zedong and the Communist Party of China (together with all its captured Japanese industry and weaponry). This acquisition allowed the CPC to consolidate power in North-East China, and eventually defeat Chiang Kai-Shek in the South. As a consequence, and contrary to the English wikipedia pages that still espouse false US Cold War propaganda as ‘fact’, there were no atrocities committed by the Soviet Red Army in China. There are no Chinese language texts, Japanese language texts, or indeed Russian language texts recording any untoward behaviour. As can be scene from some of these photographs (all gathered from the Russian language internet), there were even Westerners present in Harbin during the Soviet ‘Liberation’ and not one recorded any incidence of bad behaviour on the part of the Soviet Red Army.  It is remarkable today, to witness in the West a pro-fascist mentality developing which attempts to re-write history and present the perpetuators of world fascism as being the ‘victims’ of those who fought back against the real atrocities. The Nazi Germans (who committed the holocaust), and the imperial Japanese that pursued a genocidal policy against the Chinese – are falsely packaged as being the real victims! This is nonsense and nothing but a rightwing attempt at clearing its own conscience that has the deaths of countless millions upon it.  The historical evidence is clear – Nazi Germany and fascist Japan both thought that they could eradicate large swathes of humanity from the earth through military aggression – and both failed due to the strength of the Soviet Red Army and the resistance to invasion Of China by the CPC. I include a documentary with these pictures that clearly describes the Soviet campaign in Manchurian. The Soviets recorded 9 ineffectual Kamikaze attacks – with Japanese troops surrendering en mass after each defeat suffered. Of particular note is the successful use of Soviet paratroops to quickly ‘liberate’ forward areas before being relieved by Soviet infantry and tanks within 24 hours.

Richard Sorge (Рихард Зорге) [1895-1944] Hero of the Soviet Union

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

On the morning of the 18th October, 1941, Japanese counter-intelligence initiated a number of arrests in Tokyo that smashed a Soviet sky-ring. The Soviet Red Army had humiliated the Japanese Imperial Army a number of times in 1938 and 1939 in battles that occurred in and around the Mongolia-Manchuria border areas. Following the Japanese surrender to the Soviets, the Government of Japan was reluctant to get directly involved in another war with the USSR. However, following the Nazi German invasion of the USSR during June, 1941, the Soviet High Command were not sure whether Japan would attack the USSR from the East. This knowledge was important, particularly as Nazi German forces were sweeping through the USSR from the West, and even reaching the outskirts of Moscow by early October, 1941.

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Soviet High Command was evacuating Moscow when the Soviet Leader – Joseph Stalin – took the decision to personally stay and over-see the defence of Russia’s capital city. Enter Soviet spy master Richard Sorge (Рихард Зорге) whose dedication to the Soviet Union, and selfless service to the cause of Communism, quite literally ‘saved’ the Soviet Union from the disaster of a complete Nazi German victory, through the vital intelligence he provided. Richard Sorge successfully worked as an undercover Nazi German journalist in Hitler’s Germany (supplying an endless stream of intelligence to the USSR), before securing transfer (as an apparent Nazi German journalist) to Tokyo, Japan in 1940. He is famous for confirming (from Japanese sources) Hitler’s definite plan to invade the USSR (although not the exact date), but his most outstanding contribution is that information secured at great personal cost (as it was guaranteed to blow his cover), when he found out that Imperial Japan, despite appearing to be preparing to invade the Eastern Soviet Union, in fact had no intention whatsoever to initiate this plan. Primarily because the Japanese High Command was preparing to attack the USA (and other extensive targets throughout Asia), and needed to preserve and focus all its available military forces for these operations. Once Joseph Stalin received Richard Sorge’s report (knowing as he did the quality of this Soviet spy’s information), he was free to move the vast (and fresh) Soviet Armies stationed toward the East of the USSR, so as to converge on Moscow, and drive the Nazi German forces out off the outskirts of that city!

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

This early victory became the glimmer of light that would eventually turn into the full Soviet counter-offensive that saw the Nazi German Army driven out of the USSR, and the Nazi German regime thoroughly destroyed in Berlin by the Red Army! Richard Sorge, meanwhile, was tried in Japan for being a Soviet spy, and sentenced to Death by hanging. His grave still exists in Japan today, and is treated with respect. All the way through his trial, Richard Sorge maintained his cover story and continued to speak fluent German. Eventually, whilst stood on the trap-door of the gallows, and following the hood and noose being placed over his head – Richard Sorge shouted in Russian ‘Long Live the Soviet Union!’
