Podrabinek wrote about something else ...

October 9 2009

Member of the opposition Solidarity movement, the author of the sensational article, "How anti-Soviet anti-Soviet" Alexander Podrabinek spent the Interfax news agency press conference, during which made a number of important statements, which may thus be seriously affected as the political prospects of the human rights and to those who until recently played in his defense.

Voluntary Defenders in Podrabinek ( on the development of the scandal surrounding his article wrote more than once) was enough. The head of the Moscow Helsinki Group Lyudmila Alekseeva, chairman of the movement "For human rights" Lev Ponomarev, a former Soviet political prisoner Natalia Gorbanevskaya, various international unions of journalists and, finally, the head of the Presidential Council on Civil Society Institutions Pamfilova , after a little embarrassment, is actively engaged in campaign protection of the reputation of Mr. Podrabinek. But at the same time and their reputations. However, as suggested by Commissioner Nashi Gleb Krainov, it was, rather, not on reputation, but protecting their "coordinate system in which they (Podrabinek and his supporters. ca. aut.) can always go unpunished . " But it does not matter.

In their view, the campaign against Podrabinek "goes beyond the usual picket and turns into a witch-hunt." Under the "bullying" meant pickets Nashi activists who advocated the war veterans, whom Mr. Podrabinek called "turnkey" and "butchers." Pamfilova even constructed a formal statement on behalf of your Board. And although this statement, several Council members learned only from media reports, the event brought the story that in the last week of September only discussed in blogs, on a completely different level. Moreover, one-sided position, Ms. Pamfilova support only one side of the conflict, even questioned the reputation of the Council, which, as stated in an interview with the Interfax news agency ranking source in the Presidential Administration, "should represent the interests of the different spectra of the civil society, to help them find solutions to contentious situations, "but" this approach is not consistent with the principles of civil society devalues the very idea of the Council and put in the dubious position of his head. "

But if the Kremlin's reaction was, in principle, as expected, then here Podrabinek position, voiced at a press conference in Moscow, has surprised many.

"I'm not afraid of Nashi and aggression on their part, because it is such a street history - shocked Podrabinek journalists. - It seems wrong to interfere in private life ... and to hold pickets outside the house where the man lives. In principle, the laws of many countries provide that picketing at the household, the housing can not. We have such a provision in the legislation is not present, so I can not say that the picketing is illegal, "- rather peacefully" he said.

If Pamfilova was present at this moment in the press center, "Interfax", that is likely to be promptly crashed into a swoon. We must assume that such a betrayal of his colleagues did not expect and other "advocates" anti-Soviet. "

A Podrabinek, meanwhile, continued to amaze the audience.

"For example, many people say that Podrabinek insulted veterans of the war in his article. I have about the war veterans there are no words. Actually not a single word - he said and stood mhatovskuyu pause.- If a person, he was offended, and if it is in this literate and can read - he reads the article carefully and see that there is about war veterans have nothing. Except for one paragraph where I say that people who fought against Nazism should be respected. All of them? "- Would tolerate objections tone he said. And that is no one left in any doubt the sincerity of the man, more recently, accusing the veterans in the privatization of patriotism and love for Russia and worries about its future," Alexander Pinhosovich wanted "people realized that I was not speaking to veterans of the war, for example, people who shed their blood. It would be absurd, if the people who fought against fascism, I would be treated disrespectfully. Treat them the same respect as the people who fought against communism, which took up arms against the Bolsheviks. "

Whether Mr. Podrabinek seriously reshik repent, or simply feel where the wind blows. But when he turned in the right direction. In contrast, the same Alexandrovna Ella Pamfilova, has brought a sacrifice of his official position.
