… – Gennady Andreevich, 85 years ago, the double-headed eagles on the Kremlin towers were replaced by ruby stars. And what symbols of a big country would you never touch at all?
– Any country and people develop based on the events that blazed in its history.
Now, if you look at the color scheme, symbolic, then you will simply gasp. We have a golden red color. Such a soul, such faith…
And the Savior Not Made by Hands on a red background, and the banners of the Russian army, and the robes of the beauty, and Red Square, and the red girl, and the red corner, and the red hut with its pies.
This is a state of mind, our moral and ethical state.
It is no coincidence that Vladimir the Baptist accepted faith, which is the basis of our life, and this, above all, is moral foundations, good relations with people. Love your neighbor – the main thing here.
Therefore, red color corresponds to our history and our soul.
And the appearance of red, ruby stars, all the more, is quite symbolic.
And during the Yeltsin era, they tried to encroach on the stars of the Kremlin, but changed their minds in time.
In my opinion, it is no coincidence that today we see red stars – like the Banner of Victory – on tanks – with these symbols, our guys are liberating Ridna Ukraine from Nazism and fascism.
They continue the work of their fathers and grandfathers. They defeated the Nazis, but the Americans revived this abomination and filth along with Bandera. And we continue, under the red banner of Victory, on which the hammer and sickle, to cleanse our common homeland from this scab, from this cancerous tumor. So, it seems to me, it is necessary to look at it historically. Then you will perceive everything as natural.
But I am against the fact that they break, demolish monuments, mutilate symbols and memory. Each era has left its monuments. They must be protected.
– But you remembered the red banner with a sickle and a hammer, which now blows over a special operation. After the Victory, can this banner return as the official state flag of Russia?
– It may well be. I would love to upvote this.
And it’s already back.
We had someone (he gives the name of one now little-known politician. – A.G.), who sat, dishonored the Duma, and made a proposal – to tear the hammer and sickle, the star from the Banner of Victory. But, thank God, then everyone was indignant and they chased him in the neck. And officially the Banner of Victory was approved as the main symbol. And on Red Square, during the May 9th Parade, the state flag of the country and the Banner of Victory are carried out.
The hammer and sickle and the star are signs of working people. Workers, peasants, teachers, engineers, doctors, scientists, soldiers – they are the essence and flesh of any nation and any state. They will gladly vote for these symbols.
– And yet such information passed yesterday that in the Communist Party of the Russian Federation “a new wave of pure party members was launched”, “mass expulsions of ideologically alien party members” began – Afonin allegedly announced this.
– Who told you that?
– Here’s some information.
– Afonin is a responsible, serious person, he spoke on Radio Komsomolskaya Pravda. And you know perfectly well that no one has done this and is not going to do it.
But we have a party, it has a charter, a program. There is a program to bring the country out of the crisis, a development budget, and a unique experience of people’s enterprises. And there is an attitude to all the main issues.
A party member is obliged to implement this in his practice. If he does not do this, it is right that he will be sent. It’s the same party. And the party is strong because it strictly follows its program and democratic centralism is prescribed for everyone. Discuss, speak, express. The majority voted – do his will.
– That is, there will be no repressions of 1937 in the party?
– Take it easy…
