The Ukrainian state was created in 1991 by Boris Yeltsin on the orders of the United States. For 30 years, the United States has been preparing this state for war with Russia.
On December 8, 1991, at the Viskuli residence near Brest, in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, the heads of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus B. Yeltsin, L. Kravchuk and S. Shushkevich secretly signed an agreement on the liquidation of the USSR and the creation of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), which later proved to be completely unviable. Their agreement states that the USSR “as a subject of international law and political reality ceases to exist”, and the activities of the USSR’s organs also ceased. Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev did nothing to protect the integrity of the state he led. The history of the great state of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics come to an end. A 1000-year-old Russian power was destroyed and Soviet civilisation was destroyed.
Soviet civilisation is the highest achievement of mankind, which may never be repeated. Such a civilisation could only be created by people of great intelligence, wisdom, courage, hard work and kindness.
V. I. Lenin collected the Russian territories that were divided along national and territorial lines after the February liberal bourgeois Revolution of 1917. During the Civil War, the Red Army did not allow these territories to be taken by the West. To unite the country, it was necessary to include part of the territories in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.
But when Ukraine wanted to become an independent state in 1991, the transferred territories had to be returned. The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and the Ukrainian state are very different concepts. The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was part of a single state of the USSR, and within the state it did not matter much whether certain lands were part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic or the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. When leaving the USSR, Ukraine was obliged to return the lands included in its composition, when it was not an independent state and was part of the USSR. That is, Ukraine had to leave the USSR with the lands with which it was part of the Russian state. But Yeltsin left Russian lands to the Ukrainian state, including Crimea, included by N. S. Khrushchev in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. Therefore, it is self-evident that Yeltsin created the Ukrainian state.
At the time of the collapse of the USSR in 1991, that is, at the time of independence, Ukraine possessed a territory 22 times larger than that which in 1654, at the urgent request of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, was attached to the Moscow centralised state. “And the population of Ukraine in 1991 was 70 times more than in the time of B. Khmelnitsky. Not to mention the unprecedented economic, scientific and cultural flourishing of Ukraine” [1, p. 176-177].
But to incite hatred between the Ukrainian and Russian peoples, to prepare Ukraine for war with Russia, history has been rewritten and the myth of the “genocide” of the Ukrainian nation has been invented. In reality, the “genocide” of the Ukrainian nation in the USSR is imaginary from all points of view. For example, “before joining the USSR in late 1922 and the collapse of the USSR in 1991, Ukraine increased its population by 28,476,700 people, or 197.12%. This is approximately 2.86% or 412,700 people per year” .
Can a nearly double increase in population be called genocide!? And this population growth was achieved in the republic, which, like all the peoples of the USSR, experienced huge losses of people during the defensive Great Patriotic War.
But only in 23 years of independence, the population of Ukraine decreased by more than 6 million people. “After the collapse of the USSR in 1991 and 2014, Ukraine lost 6,280,500 people, or 12.14% of the total number. Approximately 0.53% or 273,065 people each year on average” .
Another 7 million went abroad to somehow provide for their families who remained in modern, far from independent Ukraine, largely fulfilling the will of the United States, which, to put it mildly, is completely indifferent to the fate of the Ukrainian people. The rate of population decline in the rest of Ukraine has not decreased since 2014.
It is obvious that only as part of Russia did Ukraine develop successfully and have a huge population growth.
But it is absolutely groundless to accuse V. I. Lenin of creating the Ukrainian state, with which Russia is currently at war. The history of the formation of the USSR and the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic indicates that V. I. Lenin did not allow the formation of any independent states on the territory of the former Russian Empire.
The civil war contributed to the unification of Russian lands. The governments created by the Interventionists and Whites were liquidated, and the power of various chieftains was overthrown. But in fact, the country was divided into state national entities. Even if one wanted to destroy these formations, it was impossible without starting bloody interethnic wars. The Bolsheviks had neither the strength nor the desire to start such wars. The real situation at that time showed that wars aimed at eliminating national entities would only lead to an even greater collapse of the country.
The USSR was formed not immediately and not by the will of one person or group of people, but by history itself, by the historical development of events. Step by step, the country has been moving towards a union of republics, a union state, since the February Revolution of 1917, which destroyed the Russian state, which for 300 years was led by the dynasty of Tsars of the House of Romanov. But the falsifiers of our history distorted literally all the events. V. I. Lenin was accused of destroying the Russian Empire, while in reality he recreated the Russian state destroyed by the Provisional Government in the guise of the USSR. They also accuse him of world revolution, while V. I. Lenin did not send a single citizen of the USSR to commit a world revolution.
Falsifiers made heroes of all the commanders of the White Armies, and the officers of the old army who became commanders of the Red Armies were declared traitors to the Motherland. The former chief of Staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, General Bonch-Bruyevich, responding to the charges, wrote: “The judgment of history will fall not on us who remained in Russia and honestly fulfilled our duty, but on those who prevented this, forgetting the interests of their Motherland and grovelling before foreigners, obvious enemies of Russia in its past and future” [3, p.293]. How precisely it is said “in its past and future”. Is it not time to listen to one’s compatriots, and not to grovel before the falsifiers of great Russian history?!
The Soviet government did not allow the West to carry out its intentions in Russia. Even Grand Duke Aleksey Mikhailovich shared the opinion that the “allies” were going to turn Russia into a British colony and that “none other than the internationalist Lenin stood guard over Russian national interests, who in his constant speeches spared no effort to protest against the division of the former Russian Empire…” [4, p. 70]. Even P. N. Milyukov, who praised the West, wrote that the West was trying to turn Russia into its own colony.
At present, the prevailing opinion in society is that Lenin planted a bomb, which exploded in 1991. The bomb refers to Lenin’s creation of a state divided into republics based on nationality, that is, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Could Lenin have saved Russia by uniting it into a unitary state? V. I. Lenin made the only possible decision to preserve Russia. Why? Because when Lenin came to power, the Russian state was already divided along ethnic lines and into territorial entities. And the liberals destroyed Russia as a result of the February Revolution of 1917.
The opinion that with the creation of the USSR, divided into republics on a national basis, V. I. Lenin put a time bomb under the Russian state, came to our society from the West during the Cold War. In fact, the creation of the USSR was a brilliant decision of V. I. Lenin, since the army and government of the country remained centralised, the party remained unified, and nationalists of all stripes were dislodged out of the ground. The bloodiest civil war between nations (ethnic war) was stopped at the earliest stage, which saved the lives of millions of citizens of the Russian state. Any other decision at that time could not lead Russia to reunite into a single state.
V. I. Lenin and the Bolsheviks who came to power as a result of the October Revolution of 1917 set themselves a task that none of the parties that existed at that time set, namely, the task of uniting and preserving Russia. The solution of this problem required an incredible effort on the part of the entire nation. The task of uniting and preserving Russia was a direct alternative to the West’s desire to divide and destroy Russia, which the West successfully accomplished through the hands of the Kerensky Provisional Government.
The USSR emerged as a result of the desire to preserve the Russian state and the peoples living on its territory in new conditions, without a Tsar. But, of course, the task was not only to recreate the state, but to build a new type of state – a socialist state in which the means of production and land belong to the state.
It should be taken into account that the goal of the Bolshevik statesmen was not only to build a powerful state, but also to educate a decent person. The entire population of the Republic aged from 8 to 50 years, unable to read and write, was required to learn to read and write in their native language or Russian at will. Since 1926, anti-alcohol education classes were introduced in schools, and restrictions on the sale of alcohol were introduced in the country. All this made it possible by the end of the 1920s to reduce the level of drunkenness in the USSR in comparison with tsarist Russia.
The holy trinity of Soviet power was “socialist statehood, legality, and the family”.
By the way, the consumption of factory alcohol per person, that is, per capita, was 1.04 litres in 1932, 1.9 litres in 1940, and 1.85 litres in 1950. After the death of I. V. Stalin, the level of alcohol consumption began to grow sharply, and amounted to 4.82 litres in 1960, 9.22 litres in 1970, and 12.63 litres per capita in 1980.
Contrary to popular opinion, former cadets, social revolutionaries, Mensheviks, and representatives of other parties who remained in the USSR were also involved in Soviet construction. V. I. Vernadsky, a member of the Central Committee of the Cadet Party and Deputy Minister of the Provisional Government, returned from abroad and became one of the most prominent leaders of Soviet science. Chairman of the Central Rada Grushevsky also returned and became an academician of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. All the inhabitants of the country worked for the good of the Motherland, in the name of its power and prosperity.
Even yesterday’s opponents were building the USSR. Leading scientists who gravitated to the cadets worked out the foundations of the USSR’s scientific policy and the principles of the formation of the scientific system, which became one of the foundations of the Soviet system. The greatest writers and poets of the 20th century appeared in literature: M. A. Sholokhov, M. A. Bulgakov, A. P. Platonov, S. A. Yesenin, V. V. Mayakovsky and others. The first socialist country in the world, the USSR, developed successfully, showing unprecedented rates of construction, improving the welfare and culture of the people. Russia was saved.
The USSR was the first state in the world that sought to guarantee equality of people by the system of remuneration for work, in obtaining medical services, rest in sanatoriums and rest homes, secondary, secondary special and higher education, in obtaining housing, accessibility to cultural values, promotion opportunities, protection from criminal elements and an external enemy, etc.
Every citizen of the USSR from birth became the owner of the same part of public property as all other citizens of the country and had the same income from their part of public property. In addition to wages, every Soviet citizen received their share of the profit from their part of the national property in the form of free provision of housing, some other material values, a significant discount in prices for children’s and many other goods and basic foodstuffs, and free provision of the above-mentioned services.
Receiving a certain amount of benefits from public funds did not humiliate the citizens of the USSR, since this was not charity, social protection, or any other assistance, but the natural right of every citizen of the USSR. Everyone received income from public property, regardless of wages.
The USSR guaranteed every citizen of the country the right to work. Despite the increase in the country’s population by more than 100 million over the 45 post-war years, every citizen of the USSR was guaranteed the right to work, which was observed until the last day of the Soviet Union’s existence, as the USSR was officially called briefly. Employment contracts with all employees of the country, without exception, were concluded for an indefinite period, that is, people, with rare exceptions specified in the Labour Code, were accepted for permanent work. In the USSR, a ban on unemployment was introduced.
“Our fathers and grandfathers, following the main law of the peasant community, concluded the most important social contract: every person in Russia will be guaranteed a job. Ideally, it will be a job based on one’s abilities. This is what our people were first and foremost equal in. We have pledged to each other not to throw weak people out of the gate in some ways, not to discriminate against this part of someone allocated, distributing their earnings among ourselves. We pledged to share our work with each other and not send anyone to the porch, or to a gang, or to a madhouse – three paths for the unemployed” [5, 271].
The standard of living of every working person in the USSR was still determined by the results of work, the level of wages, which determined the prosperity of the citizen and allowed individual families to buy expensive cars, build large houses of their own, travel, eat delicacies every day, that is, live in conditions of “increased comfort”. Part of the profit from public property, of course, was a smaller part of the income of citizens of the republics. But not in the vaunted West, but in the USSR, all peoples had a natural right to receive a part of the profit from their part of the state property.
Industrial enterprises of the USSR were evaluated in terms of the need for the country, people, and not profit. They existed for people, not for profit. For example, many enterprises located in the northern regions cannot be profitable due to the high energy consumption per unit of output and the high price of this energy. From the point of view of making a profit, such enterprises should not exist, but they did not exist for profit, but for people.
After the collapse of the USSR, people’s equality was called equalisation and condemned. Without a doubt, there were shortcomings in equality, but despite these shortcomings, the USSR ensured the highest rates of production growth in the world, the spiritual and cultural development of the people, and the social protection of all segments of the population. In general, the creation of the USSR instead of tsarist Russia and, especially, Russia of a Provisional Government, was a breakthrough in all areas of economic and cultural life, guaranteed the unification and preservation of the state, ensuring the security of its citizens.
The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic developed together with the whole country, and together with the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, it was ahead of all other republics in technical development. But the Ukrainian state that was formed in 1991, like the states that were formed instead of other republics, was set back in its development by the United States and its servants inside Ukraine for decades. US President George H. W. Bush understood what had been done when he congratulated the Americans on their victory in the Cold War in 1991. This victory led to the United States unleashing a war with Russia via the hands of Ukrainian soldiers.
