Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow




Счастливого Прайда!

If you have thought that an embassy is a kind of an important office, an outpost of one country on the territory of another, an office, where important problems that concern the two countries and often divide them are solved, where diplomatic communication takes place, where people behave businesslike without attracting undue media attention, if you have thought something along these lines, you’d better reconsider.

In June the American embassy in Moscow flew the rainbow flag for all Muscovites to see, whereas the American ambassador recorded an address to Russians and especially LGTB Russians, ensuring them of America’s support of human rights, with the rights of the said community being their essential part. The speech, delivered in English and provided with Russian subtitles, ended with warm wishes of a happy pride writ large; in the Russian translation the word pride remained pride, spelt in Cyrillic.

Two days later the United Kingdom’s embassy followed suit and hoisted the same flag. The transatlantic establishment has made a statement and sent a signal to its Russian partisans what paths they are expected to follow, what activities to undertake. The followers include people with dual citizenship, businessmen with accounts in Western banks, people who have property in the West and the Russian intelligentsia who is addicted to Western grants, awards, invitations to hold lectures and the excitement of having their publications in Western journals.

Why all this flurry at the end of June? Because the whole month of June is devoted to LGTB, you might answer. True. LGTB – a Moral Reformation of today’s Western World – constituting a powerful new religious persuasion after the demise of the once Christian culture, like any newborn ideology needs to conquer space, needs to win converts and clash with the old beliefs.

The last days of June are also the days during which Russians are voting in favour of or against a number of amendments to the constitution, which is to replace the existing constitution of the Russian Federation, adopted in the 90s of the previous century, which for all practical purposes turned this great nation into a colonial country, where international (read: foreign) law enjoyed precedence over the Federation’s law, where people with dual citizenship could be elected to important state posts, by virtue of which the country gave up on having its own ideology.

The new constitution – if accepted – will do away with the constraints imposed on Russia. It will enshrine the family as a union between man and woman, and ban people with dual citizenship from holding important state positions. Russia is slowly reasserting itself and taking her destiny in her own hands.

We mentioned the Reformation not without a reason. At that time, too, states infused with the nascent ideology clashed with those clinging to the old. Rainbow flags are a challenge to the country, where a few years earlier propagandizing unnatural sexual acts was prohibited.

Russians were not slow to respond. The activists of the Sorok-Sorokov Movement, whose task it is to defend and propagate Christian values, appeared in front of the American embassy with posters that convey the message from Russian believers in no uncertain terms.
