Tackle of the All-Russian Officers’ Meeting to the President and Residents of the Russian Federation
In the present day mankind lives in anticipation of struggle. And struggle is the inevitable lack of human life, destruction, struggling of huge numbers of individuals, the destruction of the same old lifestyle, the violation of the very important methods of states and peoples. An excellent struggle is a good tragedy, one’s nice crime. Coincidentally, Russia was on the heart of this impending disaster. And maybe that is the primary time in its historical past.
Beforehand, Russia (USSR) fought compelled (simply) wars, normally when there was no different method out, when the very important pursuits of the state and society had been threatened.
And what threatens the very existence of Russia in the present day, and are there such threats? It may be argued that there’s certainly a risk – the nation is about to finish its story. All very important areas, together with demographics, are steadily deteriorating and the speed of inhabitants dying is breaking world data. And degradation is systemic in nature, and in any advanced system, the destruction of one of many components can result in the collapse of your entire system.
And that, in our opinion, is the best risk to the Russian Federation. However that is an intrinsic risk, emanating from the state mannequin, the standard of energy and the state of society. And the explanations for its emergence are inner: the ineptitude of the state mannequin, the whole ineptitude and lack of professionalism of the ability and administrative system, the passivity and disorganization of society. No nation lives lengthy on this state.
As for exterior threats, they definitely exist. However, in response to our professional evaluation, they’re presently not essential and immediately threaten the existence of Russian statehood, its very important pursuits. Total, strategic stability is maintained, nuclear weapons are reliably beneath management, NATO forces are usually not build up and are usually not exhibiting any threatening exercise.
Due to this fact, for some inner forces, together with the Russian Federation, the scenario being conjured up round Ukraine is primarily synthetic, grasping in nature. Because of the collapse of the USSR, by which Russia (Yeltsin) performed a key position, Ukraine grew to become an unbiased state, a member of the UN and, in response to Article 51 of the UN Constitution, has the proper to particular person and collective protection.
The management of the Russian Federation has not but acknowledged the outcomes of the referendum on the independence of the DPR and LPR, whereas on the official degree greater than as soon as, together with throughout the negotiation course of in Minsk, the belonging of their territory and other people to Ukraine was emphasised.
The will to take care of regular relations with Kiev was additionally mentioned greater than as soon as at a excessive degree, with out emphasizing particular relations with the DPR and LPR.
The difficulty of the genocide dedicated by Kiev within the south-eastern areas has not been raised both within the UN or within the OSCE. In fact, to ensure that Ukraine to stay a pleasant neighbor of Russia, it should reveal the attractiveness of the Russian state and energy system.
However the Russian Federation didn’t develop into one, its improvement mannequin and overseas coverage mechanism of worldwide cooperation repel nearly all neighbors, and never solely.
Russia’s acquisition of Crimea and Sevastopol and their non-recognition as Russia by the worldwide group (and therefore the overwhelming variety of states on the earth nonetheless take into account them to be a part of Ukraine) convincingly demonstrates the failure of Russia’s overseas coverage and home unattractiveness.
Makes an attempt to “love” the Russian Federation and its management by way of an ultimatum and threats of violence are pointless and intensely harmful.
Firstly, the usage of army power towards Ukraine will name into query the existence of Russia itself as a state; second, it would make Russians and Ukrainians mortal enemies ceaselessly. Third, there shall be hundreds (tens of hundreds) of lifeless younger wholesome males on one facet and the opposite, which is able to certainly have an effect on the long run demographics in our dying nations. On this case, the Russian troops on the battlefield will face not solely Ukrainian army personnel, amongst whom there shall be many Russians, but additionally army personnel and tools from many NATO nations, and the member states of the alliance shall be obliged to declare struggle towards Russia.
The President of the Republic of Turkey R. Erdogan clearly said on which facet Turkey would struggle. And it may be assumed that two Turkish area armies and a fleet will obtain orders to “liberate” Crimea and Sevastopol and probably invade the Caucasus.
As well as, Russia will certainly be included within the class of nations that threaten peace and worldwide safety, shall be topic to probably the most extreme sanctions, will develop into a pariah of the world group and can doubtless lose the standing of an unbiased state.
The President and the federal government, the Division of Protection can’t ignore such penalties, they don’t seem to be that silly.
The query arises: what are the true targets of upsetting stress on the point of struggle and the attainable unleashing of large-scale hostilities? And there shall be, says the quantity and fight composition of the troop formations shaped by the events – at least 100 thousand troopers from either side. Russia, exposing jap borders, strikes formations to Ukraine’s borders.
In our opinion, the nation’s management realizes that they’re unable to steer the nation out of the systemic disaster and this, with the help of the oligarchy, can result in a well-liked rebellion and a change of energy within the nation. Corrupt officers, lured media and safety forces determined to activate the political line for the ultimate destruction of Russian statehood and the extermination of the nation’s indigenous inhabitants.
And struggle is the implies that will resolve this downside, to take care of its anti-national energy for some time and protect the wealth stolen from the folks. We can’t recommend another rationalization.
From the President of the Russian Federation, we’re officers of Russia, we demand the abandonment of the legal coverage of upsetting a struggle by which the Russian Federation will discover itself alone towards the mixed forces of the West, to create circumstances for the implementation of Artwork. 3 of the Structure of the Russian Federation and resign.
We enchantment to all retired and retired army personnel, residents of Russia, with a suggestion to be vigilant and arranged, to help the calls for of the Council of the All-Russian Officers’ Meeting to actively oppose propaganda and the unleashing of struggle, and to stop an inner civil battle with the usage of army power.
