A Russian nationalist’s argument against Putin and against modern Russia.

Not particularly well written, but it’s from an important vantage point.

Or my excerpts below.

According to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, adopted in 1993 (shortly after the shooting of the then parliament from tanks), the state is a federation built on an ethnic basis, which is reflected in the territorial structure: of the 85 regions, 27[2] are “homelands” for ethnic minorities of Russia – thus ensuring the representation of their interests at the state level. “Own” regions are possessed by the Tatars, Chechens, Yakuts, Buryats and many other peoples of Russia.

Where, then, is the “Russian Republic” – a region representing 80% of the population of the whole country? There is no such region, there are only denationalized “krays” and “oblasts”, which are “regions for all”. Maybe there is a state body authorized to defend the rights of Russians at the federal level? Again, no. The federal government represents the interests of all citizens of Russia, regardless of nationality.

In the text of the Constitution of the Russian Federation there is not even a mention of the Russian (in the ethnic sense) people, as in any other law of the Russian Federation.

Thus, ethnic Russians (~ 80% of the country’s population) even legally do not have any relation to the Russian Federation.

. . . . Any attempts by the Russians to create such an organization are suppressed as manifestations of “extremism.”

. . . .

Vladimir Putin clearly indicated his position on the “Russian question” yet in the middle of the 2000s, calling the adherents of the slogan “Russia – for Russians”[3] “jerks and provocateurs”[4], and the struggle “with anti-Semitism, like … with any nationalism and chauvinism, – the basis of our domestic policy[5]”. In addition, such slogans as “Russian power for Russia” and even “Russian, do not drink!”, “”Russian” – means “sober”” [6] are officially considered extremist in Russia.

Thousands of Russian citizens – primarily nationalists – are in prison under “political” articles.

. . . .

The Russian Federation is a growing Islamic, Asian state

The Muslim holidays of Uraza-Bairam (the Arab Eid al-Fitr) and Kurban-bairam (the Arab Eid al-Adha) are other important for understanding the essence of modern “RFia” holidays. . . .

As it is easy to guess, these holidays have a national scope in the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin congratulates Muslims with them every year (in 2015 he did it being in the mosque and reading aloud the Qur’an [1]). At the same time and in the place same significant words sounded: “Russia is the successor to the Golden Horde!”[2]. Residents of the currently rapidly Islamizing Russia can hardly argue with this statement.

. . . .

The Islamist “finger up” (“Allah is One”) – this gesture is now considered a good form in this military unit.

. . . .

Chechnya – that produces almost nothing, the real “economic hole” of Russia, – due to multi-billion subsidies from the state budget [6] is, however, much richer than most regions of the Russian Federation – Spending huge money on contruction of chic (quite tasteless) buildings or on one of the most expensive Russian teams – “Terek”. Kadyrov, in turn, lives as a small sheikh – with his palaces, army and hundreds of luxury cars.

It has long been obvious: Putin is afraid of Kadyrov.

In 2014, Forbes magazine ranked the richest families in Russia [7]. We will quote it, indicating the ethnicity of the families:

the Rothenbergs (5,55 млрд USD) – Jews;
the Gutserievs (4,85 млрд USD) – Ingush (the North Caucasus);
the Ananjevs (4,6 млрд USD) – Russians;
the Sarkisovs (2,7 млрд USD) – Armenians;
the Shaimievs (2,3 млрд USD) – Tatars;
the Mutsoyevs (1,52 млрд USD) – Yezidis (the North Caucasus);
the Magomedovs (1,4 млрд USD) – Avarians (the North Caucasus)
the Bazhaevs (1,24 млрд USD) – Chechens (the North Caucasus);
the Aminovs (1,12 млрд USD) – Jews;
the Zubitskys (0,7 млрд USD) – Jews.

. . . . A separate issue is the gradual expansion of China in the Russian Far East, which is supported by the Russian authorities. In addition to several islands on the Amur River, simply “donated” to the PRC during the years of Putin’s rule, the Kremlin took even more significant steps in this direction: in 2015, 115,000 hectares of agricultural land in the Trans-Baikal region were given to the Chinese for rent for 49 years. In addition, in the same Trans-Baikal region, for the same 49 years, 1,844,407 hectares of forests adjacent to the state border with China were leased for cutting by the Chinese [8]. For the sake of the Chinese expansion in the Far East, the Government of Russia specifically developed the concept of “territories of advanced development”, which provides, in particular, the possibility of importing foreign workers to such territory without any restrictions.
