Russophobia we see worldwide the Western “civilisation” (forgive them, they don’t know the meaning of that word) is not new. It is just more visible due to the global reach of the mass media controlled by the Anglophone Hegemon
Russophobia is all around us. Mainly if you live in countries considered part of the “Western civilisation”. They tend to claim to be the “international community”, which might result from a total lack of education in geography. Who are they, what are their motives, and who is behind Russophobia today? When it all started? I want to present you with a copy of the publication by Egor Kholmogorov.
Egor Kholmogorov is a Russian publicist member of the Union of Writers of Russia. The author of works devoted to Russian nationalism, the history of Russia, the Russian Orthodox…
Who is my targeted audience? I would be delighted if this article reaches those in Russia and Serbia who believe to be part of “Europe” and the “Western civilisation” and culture. Please read this (long) article and think again. Do you want to belong to those who hate you and whose hatred is endemic and incurable?
Russophobia – A brief history of Hatred
Why is Europe hostile to Russia? Such a question was asked by biologist and, philosopher, excellent Russian thinker Nikolay Danilevsky in 1867 in his work “Russia and Europe”. He pointed out the hypocrisy of Western politicians and society who unleashed the Crimean War against Russia in 1854, accusing our country of violating the European order, and when Prussia and Austria attacked little Denmark in 1864 to take away two provinces from her, no one in « enlightened Europe » was not indignant at such a robbery.
My dear Serbs, do you see that nothing has changed since 1867 in the way that “Western Civilisation” behaves towards not only Russians but Serbs as well? The West is so concerned about Ukrainian territorial integrity but feels comfortable encroaching on Serbian territorial integrity. Nothing has changed in over 150 years. And nothing will ever change.
Danilevsky answered his question: the difference is that Russia and the West — are two separate, mainly alien to each other civilisations. The Russian thinker owns the honour of the remarkable discovery in historical science —the idea of the plurality of human civilizations and the multi-linearity of historical development.
The rejection of Russia as another civilization
Western historical science gradually mastered this idea of the plurality of historical development options, which refused to equalise the whole world according to the Western standard. However, the Russophobia of the West did not reduce. By creating the recognition of the right to the independent development of China, India, and the countries of the Middle East, Russia’s right to be itself is still denied by the West.
It is necessary to connect this with the fact that Russia has always thought of itself not only as one of the civilisations but as the guardian of the sacred world order, the heiress of the Roman and Byzantine Empire, the Third Rome. And this position of Russian civilization contradicts the plans of the West for the eternal retention of world hegemony.
It is no coincidence that the main motive of anti-Russian propaganda in the world is the imagination of Russia and its inferiority compared to the West and the alleged threat to peace emanating from it.
Western Russophobia is the rejection of Russia as a different, independent civilisation compared to the West. It is motivated by the perception of Russia as a threat to the world domination of the West.
The development of European Russophobia began with the era of the formation Russian national state. When Orthodox Moscow under Grand Duke Basil II rejected the Florentine union with Roman Catholicism. And Ivan III turned into a great power.
At first, Western acquaintances with Russia in Western travel reviews were dominated by balanced, interested, and sometimes commendable reviews. However, in Europe, there were forces directly interested in the spread of Russophobia. — These were neighbouring countries with Russia. The Polish-Lithuanian state and the Livonian Order, who owned land taken from Russia in the difficult 13th century and feared demands for their return.
Invention « Moskovy »
Polish king Sigismund I after Russia returned Smolensk to its composition in 1514, began to distribute propaganda materials in Europe. These claimed that Poland was the defensive line of Europe, protecting her from the threat of “Moscow barbarians, Asians and heretics”.
Polish propagandists launched the term “Moskovia”. They were trying to prove that Russia has nothing to do with Russia. They tried to force authors in European countries to apply the term “Russia” only to the Polish-owned Galicia. Our land and people should be called exclusively “Moskovia” and “mosquitoes”.
The Russophobic hysteria in Europe became especially active during the Livonian War era. It is when Russia liquidated the Livonian Order and stepped on Poland, freeing the Belarusian lands. The state of hostilities against Russia was simultaneously the Commonwealth, Sweden and Denmark. Rusofobic “flyers” began to spread in Europe actively. These depicted “Moscow barbarians” accused of various atrocities.
The thesis that power in Russia — is “tyranny”, led by “severe despot” king “Ivan Uzhasny”, who is torturing his own, began to spread out.
The main line of European Russophobia — Russia was formed. It was presented as a country with barbaric people and cruel power. The country does not have the right to pursue its own European policy. The country should be restrained in Asia by the forces of its neighbouring countries. It should be done with the help of the whole of Europe.
It is clear that the recent proposal by Ukrainian Nazis to call Russia “Moskovia” is more than five centuries old. However, it seems that Sweden was already a member of NATO then. Putin was hiding under the name of “Ivan Uzhasny”! My dear Serbs, Russians and other Eastern Orthodox Slavs, do you want to be part of the Hollywood “civilisation” incapable of inventing new ways to hate you?
“Testament of Peter the Great”
A massive surge in Russophobia in Europe was associated with the policies of the French cabinet in the mid-18th century.
You, of course, know, and I repeat it very clearly that the sole purpose of my policy towards Russia is to remove it as far as possible from European affairs. Everything that can plunge her into chaos, former darkness, is beneficial to me“King Louis XV to a French agent in St. Petersburn
The enmity towards Russia intensified with the beginning of the French Revolution and Napoleonic wars. Why? Russia was the primary opponent of France’s revolutionary and imperial European conquests.
The famous fake “Testament of Peter the Great” was launched into the world press. In it, on behalf of the Russian emperor, plans were set forth for Russia to establish world domination through continuous wars.
The appearance of this fake in Europe was attributed to the French transvestite spy Chevalier de Eonou. However, the Polish Russophobic ideologist Mikhail Sokolnitsky gave the fake’s final appearance. For the first time, he launched the term “Empire of Darkness”. Sokolnitsky’s fakes came in handy NapoleonBonaparte for the propaganda justification of the invasion of Russia in 1812.
The behaviour of the French in Moscow, the looting and desecration of churches, and terror against civilians directly flowed from the postulates of the Rusofob propaganda. However, the French army suffered a crushing defeat in Russia.
The French press needed to explain the coming of the Cossacks to Paris. Also, to explain that the Russian army was humane and disciplined. The explanation was found in the “fact” that Russia has a cruel discipline that only allows Russians to achieve victories. And besides, the Russians fought dishonestly – on their side was “General Frost”.
Now we know that the roots of the current “transgender lobby” controlling Anglophone Hegemon can be traced back to that French transvestite spy Chevalier de Eonou! Not to mention that naughty “general Frost” and its actions against impotent French, Germans…
Russia in 1839
During the hegemony of Russia in Europe after the Patriotic War of 1812, Russophobic propaganda was needed to undermine its authority. Its most remarkable product was the extensive book of the French Marquis Adolf de Cuestina. He was one of the most famous open homosexuals in Europe then. The book was named “Russia in 1839”.
The book of Custin is a paradoxical alloy of hateful Rusofob declarations.
Russia — is a camp discipline instead of the state system; since this empire is not uncommon, it is nothing more than a prison, the key to which is kept by the emperorAdolf de Cuestina
Obviously that the members of the LGBTQ++ community have some severe problems with Russia.
However, in the 19th century, the capital of Russophobia was not Paris, but London
English Russophobia was more closely linked to racism and colonialism. The performance of the British about “the burden of the whites”, which supposedly gives them the right to command the world, spread a sense of racial superiority not only to the coloured peoples of Asia and Africa but also to white Russians.
Let it be clearly understood that the Russian is a delightful person till he tucks in his shirt. As an Oriental, he is charming. It is only when he insists on being treated as the most easterly of Western peoples instead of the most westerly of Easterns that he becomes a racial anomaly extremely difficult to handle.Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907 as the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and at 41, its youngest recipient to date. I can understand how important is that institution called the Nobel Prize for spreading Anglophone Hegemony. Their “standards” are much clearer to me now. It is also clear what (European, I guess) values that organisation promotes.
He was the closest associate and like-minded of another prominent Russophobe — oligarch Cecile Rhodes, the creator of “Round Table”, an organisation of the British elite that sought to strengthen the dominance of the British Empire based on Masonic ideology.
England perceived the Russian Empire as the main threat to its geopolitical power.
British Prime Minister Viscount Palmerston attributed the phrase: “How hard it is to live when no one is fighting with Russia”. Even if this saying is legendary, Palmerston’s genuine letters reveal his fear of Russia:
Sooner or later, Russia will become as powerful as in ancient times, the Roman Empire. She will be able to become the mistress of Asia ( with the exception of British India ) when she wishes. When … the railways reduce distances, its power over people will become huge, the money — gigantic, and the ability to transport troops over long distances — inspiring thrill.
Auto-Chauvinism – Russophobie by “progressive” Russians
Starting with the publisher “Colokol”, Alexander Herzen, financially supported by the Rothschild banker’s house, Western Rusofob propaganda is increasingly beginning to penetrate Russia itself. Russophobia becomes an indispensable part of the views of “the progressive” person hostile to Orthodoxy, autocracy and nationality.
The great Russian poet Fedor Ivanovich Tutchev wrote to his daughter Anna in 1867, that is, after the reforms of Alexandra II:
« It would be possible to analyse the modern phenomenon, which is becoming increasingly pathological. This is the Russophobia of some Russian people — by the way, very revered.
They used to tell us, and they thought so, that in Russia, they hate lawlessness, lack of freedom of the press, etc., because that is why they so dearly love Europe that it is inevitable that it possesses all that is not in Russia. What do we see now?
Exposing liberal Westerners, Tutchev wrote the lines:
No matter how you bend before it, gentlemen, / You will not gain recognition from Europe: / In her eyes, you will always / Not the servants of enlightenment, but the colds
The October Revolution of 1917 strengthened Russophobic propaganda. It added the fear of the invasion of the Bolsheviks and the activities of the Comintern. The death of the Russian Empire was used for statements about the inferiority of Russians. They are incapable of self-government, and, therefore, need external conquest.
The Russian spirit as such, apparently, is not adapted to creative activity. Almost everything that Russia has created in external and internal affairs, it owes to the Germans who were in Russian service, or the Baltic Germans — was stated in a school textbook published in Germany in 1925.From a school textbook published in Germany in 1925
However, those interested in knowing the truth, know who built American nuclear and space programs.
Russophobia was one of the most important components of Nazi propaganda. It unfolded incredibly widely with the German attack on the USSR. The purpose of the war was openly proclaimed. The destruction of the state, Russian culture, and the genocide of the Russian people.
The main goal of the campaign is the complete defeat of state power and the eradication of Asian influence on European culture … No historical and artistic values in the East matterField Marshal Walter von Reichenau
The “Cold War” Russophobia
During the Cold War, Russophobic propaganda reached its highest intensity and sophistication.
George Frost Kennan, the grandniece of the ideologist of American Russophobia, formulated its principles in his “Long Telegram” in the US State Department. It developed the ideological principles of the Cold War. Kennan called on the West to “containment” Russia from a position of strength.
A significant part of the Russophobic propaganda of the West was now directed at the Soviet Union. Both to form pro-Western sentiments among the Soviet intelligentsia and to provoke “titular” nationalism in the Union republics.
In 1959, the US Congress passed the “enslaved peoples law”. In it, the US administration was attributed to supporting the “struggle for freedom of enslaved by the imperialist policies of Russia people of Lithuania, Ukraine, and the fictional Kazakiya and Idel-Ural, and even Tibet.
During this period, with the help of Western radio voices in the Soviet Union, Russophobia for domestic consumption began to actively spread.
The propaganda of Ukrainian separatism sponsored by Washington reached a special intensity. It was Ukrainian Nazi ideologists who made up the most aggressive detachment of Russophobia. Ukrainian Nazis who escaped justice were given shelter in countries of the Anglophone Hegemon. Countries that also call themselves the “five eyes”.
Post-communist era Russophobia
The cessation of communist power in Russia did not lead to the curtailment of Russophobic propaganda in the West. Russia is presented as “losing” in the Cold War.
Rusofob rhetoric became especially aggressive after the reunification of Crimea with Russia in 2014 and the imposition of Western sanctions.
US President Barack Obama proudly stated that Russia’s economy is torn by sanctions to shreds. And Republican Senator John McCain, one of the most prominent Russophobes, called Russia « a gas station pretending to be a country ».
In 2022, “a country of a gas station with a broken economy” withstood the most severe Western sanctions. However, Russophobic propaganda continues. There are fakes about “Russian war crimes”, and calls “to cancel” Russian culture.
I changed my mind and am appealing to a broader audience than the one mentioned above. Russophobia is just one of many phobias practised by Satanists in Anglophone Hegemon and its vassals from Nazi Europe. People of different races and religions (particularly Islam) are the victims, just as Russians and Serbs. It is time to understand that right now, Russia is fighting for the freedom of all oppressed and hated on this planet.
