"Podrabinek" brought into the light

October 5 2009

Russian liberal opposition, stood up for the journalist and human rights activist Alexander Podrabinek, did this not out of solidarity or camaraderie of responsibility, but to protect themselves and their rights would not respond.

This conclusion activists of Nashi, who spend an indefinite picketing Podrabinek, demanding public apology to veterans. In addition, from September 30 to Nashi are collecting signatures under an appeal to the Prosecutor General of Russia, demanding a criminal case against Alexander Podrabinek under article 130 of the Criminal Code "insulting."

Recall that the dissident and human rights activist Alexander Podrabinek in his article, "How anti-Soviet antisovetchkam" called the Soviet war veterans, "the guard" and "The Executioner" by denying them at least entitled to respect and honor. "Contempt for children - the smallest of what earned builders and defenders of the Soviet regime," - wrote Podrabinek. In this case, in my opinion, these veterans - those who fought "against the Communists in the forests of Lithuania and Western Ukraine, in the mountains of Chechnya and the sands of Central Asia." "They almost all died, their memory is almost no one guarded in their honor do not call the squares and streets. Few of them, the survivors do not receive benefits from the state and personal pensions, living in poverty and obscurity. But you, the guards and admirers of Soviet power, and it is they - the true heroes of our country, "- emphasizes Podrabinek.

The most amazing thing that a man who openly called them heroes of the war, "Stalin's falcons, Brezhnev sycophants and stranglers of freedom", has found an astounding amount of defenders. Who are these defenders, and that they are protecting?

"The phenomenon of overblown scandal that uncovered Podrabinek - said
Commissioner Nashi Gleb Krainik. - We all understand that Podrabinek committed a terrible act. But not all are willing to admit it. I'm talking mainly about the so-called "defenders" Podrabinek. No one, certainly, not protect, let him have nothing to defend. All those who raised the cry that Podrabinek "grass" - these are people who defend their system of coordinates in which they can always go unpunished. They actually defend themselves. They call on the floor to answer a word. It suits - in this system are as many may offend our country, our veterans, and to rewrite our history in favor of Western funders, and in response to receiving a word or a maximum of a lawsuit. But no words, no action shall not interfere with them again to write insulting our country and our ancestors lie. They are just afraid that tomorrow will be a picket at their windows. And this in fact they write in their articles in the alleged defense Podrabinek. For them, the veterans - nobody, and on Podrabinek they do not care - they protect themselves and their rights would not respond, "- he stressed.

A few days ago, veteran of World War II, the Chairman of the Committee on military-patriotic education of the youth council of veterans of the North-West District of Moscow, Viktor Semyonov filed a civil lawsuit from 152 of the Civil Code article "protection of honor, dignity and business reputation" against the journalist Alexander Podrabinek. Viktor Podrabinek requires a public apology. "Soon the people of Russia will celebrate the 65 anniversary of victory in WWII. It is unfortunate that on the eve of this date, there are people who seek to discredit, defame this holiday, to create strife between the generation of winners and young people. Among them are certain Mr. Podrabinek. I would like to meet with Mr. Podrabinek, and not to him to sort things out, and sit over a cup of tea and look into his eyes, "- says the veteran.

p style = "text-align: justify;"> However, neither the author of that article nor his family nor, presumably, other "Podrabinek did not consider it possible to meet face to face with those they are accustomed to, until recently, with impunity insult . When the commissioners Nashi gave his son a letter from a veteran journalist BOB Viktor Semyonov, Mark Podrabinek in the presence of cameras crumpled up the letter to the veteran, and threw in the trash. And what kind of respect and mutual dialogue, in this case can we speak? This is a war that, as in 1941, began the enemies of our country.
