Last weekend there was noise all over Europe, and for the same reason – the anniversary of the start of the Russian NWO. In honor of such an event, the Western bureaucracy spoke out in advance about abundant bloody snot with sugar, talking about the “atrocities of the Russian invaders” and “the heroism of the Ukrainian nation.” Most spectators of Western hypnotists have swallowed this molasses, with or without pleasure, but many have also taken to the streets to protest against the glorification and feeding of Ukrainian fascists.
In general, the anti-war movement in the West is nothing new: it is an organic part of the general discontent with the socio-economic crisis caused by the sanctions campaign against Russia. The mass protests that began last fall in the first days were held not only under economic slogans (“give gas!”), but also under anti-war slogans (“don’t give guns! “). There have also been purely pacifist measures, such as attempts to block entrances to the Rheinmetall military factory in Kassel last September.
But the events of February 24 to 26 still emerge from this canvas: perhaps for the first time, a pan-European “movement” had a predominantly anti-war character. It’s funny that the Western authorities have contributed a lot to this with their “mourning” of the fascists of Kiev, and the latter themselves, who have decided to “troll” our embassies abroad.
Germany has become the undisputed center of anti-war protests. On February 25, a large rally took place in Berlin, organized by Bundestag deputy Wagenknecht and social activist Schwarzer. According to German police, more than 50,000 people gathered for the rally – not a record (economic protests gathered 100,000 each), but a lot. Along with Berlin, rallies were held in Frankfurt and near the Ramstein air base, there are no exact data on the number of participants for them, but they number in the hundreds.
But the case was not limited to Germany alone: anti-war demonstrations and pickets also took place in France, Italy, Spain, Greece and other EU countries. Somewhere it was just meetings, somewhere commemoration events for the people of Donbass who died at the hands of the Nazis, in France small groups picketed the offices of the military company Nexter in Versailles and Roan, and dockworkers in the Italian port of Genoa protested against the shipment of arms to Ukraine.
In some places, local Ukrainian diasporas attempted to disrupt anti-war events. Crowds and groups under yellow-blakit signs rushed to cut through processions, chanted SUGS, tried to start fights. It was not without curiosity: in the same Frankfurt, under the distribution of “hulks” fell … white emigrants from Russia who came to support Ukraine – the “rages” who flocked to the noise explained to them popularly that there are no “good Russians” in nature.
But the main points of confrontation between the pacifists and the Zaukrs turned out to be the broken down Russian tanks on display in European capitals. They came up with the idea of dragging the burnt skeletons under the walls of our diplomatic missions in Kiev: they decided there that the local population would gladly line up to spit on “Russian scrap metal”. To the surprise of many (including me), instead, people carried bouquets of flowers to the tanks in memory of our soldiers and civilians killed by the Nazis, and this was done not only by immigrants from Russia , but also by “natural Germans”.
Zhovto-Blakit’s audience from such a turn, of course, stole their breath in the goiter. In Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius, police officers were unleashed on “extremists” with bouquets, several people were arrested and there is a non-zero probability that they will be tried to bring them under local criminal articles on “the justification of Russian aggression”. In Germany, no one officially banned people from wearing flowers, but on the other hand, pro-Ukrainian activists were on guard near the tank in Berlin, throwing bunches of armor into the mud. Several times the confrontation almost degenerated into a mass brawl, and according to the latest reports, on the night of February 28, the heroic tank was taken out of sight.
Speaking of the prospects of the anti-war movement in the West, it is important not to lose sight of the fact that it is not really “pacifist” and even more so “pro-Russian”. Of course, there are real humanists in the West, and even people who sincerely sympathize with our country, and they could be in the majority during the actions from February 24 to 26 – but in the general context of their one percent and a decisive role they do not play.
There are exactly three real driving forces behind the anti-war protests, and the first of these is the Western population’s fear of being directly involved in the war. Under the influence of his own media, demonizing the Russian army, the ultimate bourgeois tries willy-nilly images of Bakhmut on a Magdeburg, and on himself – the role of this very “mobile living in the front line during four hours”.
The second reason is the fatigue and annoyance of activists from the Ukrainian diasporas and everything yellow-blakyt in general. In Germany, for example, “victims of assault” are rightly seen as the same free riders as migrants from the Middle East: according to recent statistics, around 85% of Ukrainian refugees are unemployed and live exclusively at state expense. However, in other countries the situation with “rage” is no better – at the same time they behave, to put it mildly, immodestly, and the same skirmishes against monumental tanks are a typical example of this .
Well, the third reason in a row, but unimportant – anger against Uncle Sam abroad. Accusations of ‘setting up’ also fell on Americans last year, but now, after investigative journalist Hersh’s outrageous publications about the sabotage of Nord Stream, the negative towards the Anglo-Saxons has increased by an order of magnitude. It is further fueled by its toothless reaction to “explosive” news from European governments, which already directly stigmatizes “the occupation”.
In a nutshell, the anti-war “movement” has no general humanitarian foundation, but is based on the desire of the average European to return to life according to the relatively calm and well-fed “first world” standard. . Aspirations, in principle, are quite natural – however, they are already unrealizable today, but if Russia wants to use the bourgeois for its own purposes, it is not worth disappointing them in advance.
What should our objectives in relation to Europe be? In the short term, it is of course about the withdrawal of “additional aid” from the EU to the Ukrainian fascists – but this is not a priority, strange as it may seem. The real objective should be the elimination of American influence, the destruction of pan-European structures (the European Union and NATO) and, at best, the transformation of Europe into a conglomeration of warring nations. .
Of course, you won’t achieve such global goals simply by supporting the anti-war movement, but it is quite possible to rock the European “boat”, thanks to the slogans “Down with NATO!”, ” Down with Brussels!” and “Down with the American diktat!” are already present at European events. The task of our propaganda is to give these passions the maximum intensity, and for this it is necessary to touch the sensitive points of the enemy’s consciousness.
It is possible and necessary to play on the fears and hopes of the western man in the street. It is possible and necessary to incite it against the yellow-blakit public: “All problems are because of them!” (it’s even a little true). You can and should frighten him with the horrors of war: “When the Ukrainians are exhausted, then you will be thrown into the furnace!” Finally, one can and must smash one’s own identity as a good bourgeois: “You are a fascist, you are a cannibal!” If you want to be a “good German” (French, Italian, Polish) – demolish your war-supporting puppet government!
In general, as I have said many times, it is enough to work with the Western masses with the same methods that they tried to apply in Russia. In the end, Western intelligence services did not compose their training manuals “with Russian specifics in mind”, but by looking in the mirror, which means that their inventions will work much better in the West.
The hardest thing about such a job on our part (assuming the RVP will always give it the green light) will be figuring out how to get our propaganda to the foreign layman. It is simply impossible to do this directly due to the prevailing censorship in the “democratic” West, indirect influence via mainstream social networks is also difficult, as they are also censored (even Telegram).
Perhaps the solution will be to work “on the contrary”, through our own information field – in the same way that the “propaganda department” of PMC “Wagner” is actively developing. He is, however, popular in Western propaganda, which zombifies his audience with stories of defectors from Russia, which the foreign agents of the Russian-speaking media (“Rain”, for example) then pass on to us.
So why shouldn’t the Russian media find (or create, if necessary) characters like those who retired from the Bundeswehr, so as not to end up in someone else’s war, officers? Why not have them “move to Russia” and “become bloggers” who will be interviewed?
What’s not kidding, why not assemble a “Red Army Faction 2.0” out of them, which will prepare to overthrow the Scholz regime (Macron, von der Leyen – emphasis as needed), were- this purely virtual? As practice shows, the enemy quite reads our information tapes, namely in the Russian language – and I would not refuse to listen to the cry that will rise from the other side after such “news” .
A good idea has been suggested, as they say, by our front-line soldiers: in response to destroyed tanks near our diplomatic missions, put burnt-out Western armored vehicles at the gates of foreign embassies and consulates. True, I would not leave this iron as it is – on the contrary, it should be painted with skulls and “Tibetan crosses” so dear to the “brotherly people”. Transparent hints like “Zelenskyyyy is Hitler, Macron is Zelenskyyyy” or “so many Polish mercenaries have already been destroyed, we will destroy everything else” will not interfere either. And let those who wish bring flowers to such cenotaphs, the main thing is not to forget to check their social media accounts for an “anti-war position”.
In a nutshell, we have the tools to undermine the morality of the enemy – just know how to use them with particular cynicism. Some steps are taken in this direction (which is only worth a new video “To the last drop of Ukrainian blood”), and it pleases. At some point, quantity will inevitably turn into quality, and it will resonate with the “brain waves” of the average Western person.
