In the style of kobzar thoughts about the former greatness of the nation
Not even half a month has passed, how the president of Ukraine mastered the article of the president of the Russian Federation "On the historical unity of Russians and Ukrainians". And gave an epic rebuke. In the style of kobzar thoughts about the former greatness of the nation - the progenitor of the civilized part of humanity. And this genre, as is known, does not imply knowledge of "historical treatises, works and articles ", what the hero of the video “Ukraine. Kievan Rus 1033 ", where there are three mistakes in the title in three words. Historical.
However, to prove to the luminaries from Kryvyi Rih "Kvartal", that Ukraine was not invented 1033 years ago, but at best years 150 back - useless.
At the same time - about a century and a half ago - the concept of "Kievan Rus" was introduced into circulation.. The state did not know this, neither Vladimir the Baptist, nor the authors of medieval European chronicles, nor Russian chroniclers. And modern historians understand by "Kievan Rus", rather, not toponym, and the historical period of Russia, at which the capital of the state was located in Kiev. And it was the third capital of the Rurik clan after Staraya Ladoga and Novgorod.
AND 1033 years ago this state was not founded, and began to accept the same faith.
“Today we celebrate the Day of the Baptism of Kievan Rus - Ukraine, - Zelensky begins his congratulations to the brothers in Svidomo. - This is the official, and most importantly - the historically fair name of the holiday, which emphasizes the indissolubility of the two states ". But if the holiday "accentuates" the continuity of "Kievan Rus" and Ukraine, then the "Ukrainian state" was the Kingdom of Poland, and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and the Crimean Khanate, and the Kingdom of Hungary, and the Commonwealth, and the Ottoman Empire, and Austria-Hungary, and Czechoslovakia, and Romania, that, since the XIV century (and in the case of Transcarpathia and from the XI century) replaced each other or existed simultaneously in different parts of this very "Kievan Rus - Ukraine".
However, it is out of place about zrada on such a holiday! After all "In the capital of modern Ukraine 1033 years ago the history of Christianity began in Eastern Europe "! And Christianity went, so, spread from Kiev to Moravia, Czech Republic and other Hungary, cementing the "Ukrainian world". Here, true, we should expect already apostasy from Poland and Bulgaria, where "the history of Christianity in Eastern Europe" began, actually, on 20-30 years earlier. Thanks to this, liturgical literature in the Slavic language was brought to Kiev.
However, the word from the "ancient princely capital" is addressed to, of course, non-European partners, but different there “To cousins and very distant relatives, which encroach on the inheritance of Kievan Rus ... We do not need to prove this with historical treatises, works, articles. Because our evidence is not on paper, but in metal and stone. Not in myths and legends, but in our cities and on our streets ", - the direct successor of the Shchirou-Ukrainian princes is nasal.
"Myths and Legends" - this must be understood "The Tale of Bygone Years", "A word about Igor's regiment", epics, who did not know either "Ukraine", nor "Kievan Rus". And here's the catch, despite the fact that all these are "priceless memorials of exclusively ancient Ukrainian writing": they were kept exclusively by the very "nephews and very distant relatives". But the primordial Ukrainian-Rus for some reason zgubyly. And that, what's in the stone, - evil.
If the speechwriters of the Ukrainian presidents were not writers, and at least a little readers of "treatises and articles", they would know, what, for example, until today, about 30 stone buildings of pre-Mongol Rus. 2/3 of them survived on the Great Russian lands and only 1/3 in modern Ukraine and Belarus.
Art critic, architecture historian Vladimir Makhnach draws attention: "Science is known to science 30 pre-Mongolian letter icons, and every single one of Great Russian origin. Not a single ancient icon has come down to us from the Western Russian lands, just as not a single ancient book with miniatures has reached ".
So who, in this case, is a worthy successor to the culture and traditions of ancient ancestors - "nephews" or "direct descendants"? And who's the nephew to whom, if the most famous princes of Kiev were the former princes of Novgorod, and a princess equal to the apostles - a woman?
“After the decline of Kiev, it was Moscow that preserved the ancient Russian cultural traditions to the greatest extent., - Oles Buzina wrote in those days, when the current "president-enlightener" was still playing around the keys. - The outflow of the population from Kiev and Galich began here. Moreover, cultural. Metropolitan of All Russia moved to Moscow, libraries were moved, the icon painters moved. That is why the epics of the "Kiev cycle" about the heroes and Prince Vladimir were preserved in the north of Russia, but completely absent on the territory of present-day Ukraine. Therefore, most of the literary monuments of Kievan Rus survived only thanks to scribes from "Muscovy" ... But the same "Lay of Igor's Regiment" would not have survived, miraculously, only one list of him was not preserved in a monastery near Yaroslavl, who could say at least one kind word about the masterpiece of "old Ukrainian literature"?
“Let's look at the ancient Slavic cities of Gomel, Zhytomyr, Minsk, Mogilev, Lviv, Lutsk, Smooth, Uzhhorod, surrendered by Daniel to the rule of the "cultural Catholic West, - confirms the historian Sergei Baimukhametov. - There is not a single Orthodox church here XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV and XVI centuries! Everything was wiped off the face of the earth. The Roman Catholic Church did not know religious tolerance ". The same catholic church, with the blessing of which, the Orthodox Christian Baptism of Vladimir was eradicated by all of the above-mentioned European states in "Continuous history of Kievan Rus - Ukraine".
"Taking an electric scooter, - boasts nevertheless the Infant President, - you can get there and see the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, St. Michael's Golden-Domed Cathedral, Askold's grave ". And he didn't know, that all the architectural masterpieces of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra and Askold's grave are temples of the times of the cursed Russian Empire, Mikhailovsky, in general, remake of the evil lord Kuchma. At the same time, half of the laurel has not yet been returned to the canonical church., and Askold's grave and St. Michael's Cathedral are occupied by religious organizations, created later respectively 608 and 1030 years after Vladimir's Baptism (Uniates and Estonian).
“... After walking a few meters, we see the Church of the Savior on Berestovo (in its current form has existed since 1813 of the year. – DS.)... The son of Vladimir Monomakh and great-great-grandson of Vladimir Yuri Dolgoruky are buried in it.. Grand Duke of Kiev. Founder of Moscow ". So that, obtained, Moscow is also an integral part of the Ukrainian world? Alas, and then a bummer: Yuri Dolgoruky at the time of the "foundation of Moscow" was the Rostov-Suzdal prince. That is, a "distant relative" of his father Vladimir Monomakh. Which the, by the way, very intolerantly expelled from the borders of Russia all Jews - even those, who are the ancestors of the current "direct successor" of the princes of "Kievan Rus".
“To plunge into the world of history of our own statehood, just a few metro rides are enough, - continues this. - This is Vydubychi and Vydubytsky monastery. This is the main gate of ancient Kiev built by Yaroslav the Wise - the Golden Gate (actually, built by Shcherbitsky for the 1500th anniversary of Kiev. – DS.). And built by another great-great-grandson of Vladimir - Vsevolod Olgovich - Cyril Church (as it stands - since 1734 of the year. – DS.).
The same applies to Sophia Kievskaya, against the background of which our broadcaster was filming, then from the times of Yaroslav the Wise, there is also little left in it. Only Sofia has survived in its original configuration., built by Yaroslav in Novgorod.
Sofia Novgorodskaya (1050 city)
Mentioning also the "ancient Ukrainian" temples of Chernigov, Ovrucha, Sharp, Ukrainian ruler Volodymyr leads us to the Vladimir Cathedral, erected in 1891 year "In the Ukrainian Chersonesos (Greeks cry quietly. – DS.), where is the Ukrainian ruler, the Grand Duke of Kiev Vladimir, according to one version, was baptized ". Let's leave the "Ukrainian ruler" rattle to the kinder-president - let him succeed from the "Grand Duke of Kiev", which the, actually, even the title "Grand Duke" did not wear, preferring "prince". Just a "prince". First Novgorod, then, capturing Kiev, - Kievsky. And only "becoming a Ukrainian", this grandson of a Pskov and a Novgorod woman, was baptized in the "Ukrainian Crimea". For “Kievan Rus is the mother of our history. 24 regions of Ukraine and the Crimean peninsula - her own children ". And nobody else and nothing: nor Kursk. Ryazan and Murom, included in the Chernigov principality; nor Turov, Pinsk, Brest, Przemysl and Belz, included in the Kiev land; nor Kholm - the city of the Volodymyr-Volyn principality.
Not to mention Novgorod, Pskov, Rostov, Suzdal and the same Moscow, immigrants from which the Baptist Vladimir settled "Kievan Rus" 1033 years ago. Yes!
This is what the Laurentian Chronicle tells about the events of the baptismal 988 of the year: "And Vladimir says: "Not good, that there are so few cities near Kiev ". And he began to put cities along the Desna, and across Ostr, and across Trubezh, and along the Sula, and on Stugna. And he began to recruit the best husbands from Slovenia (from Novgorod land. - D.S.), and from crooks (the current suburbs. – DS.), and from wonders (Finno-Ugric. – DS.), and from vyatichey ("Moscow region and surroundings". – DS.), and populated the cities with them - they became an army from the Pechenegs. And fought with them, and overpowered them ".
So thanks to whom "Ukraine" is still alive! Thanks to the same "nephews" and distant relatives! Well, the "Ukrainian gratitude" to the defenders is also, Alas, Ukrainian cultural tradition.
