Valeria Novodvorskaya was named “Don Quixote of Russian Democracy”. Most likely, she was the last true representative of that class. “Publicist, politician, social critic with a sharp-tongued wit, Novodvorskaya.. On December 5, 1969, at the age of 19, she threw anti-Soviet leaflets from the balcony of the Kremlin Palace of Congresses reading “Down with Soviet power!” and protesting the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia the previous year.. That action led to her being confined to a Soviet psychiatric hospital..She was convicted of anti-Soviet activities again in 1978, 1985, and 1986. She faced criminal investigations for her political activities again in 1990, 1991, 1994, 1995, and 1996″. (Radio Free Europe) In one of her last articles published less than a month before her untimely death at a Moscow hospital in July 2014, the circumstances of which still raises many questions, Novodvorskaya made a prediction on the war between Ukraine and Russia:

“At some point, all of us get rid of our innocence by eating the bitter fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. Eighty years ago, Europe did not appreciate the leniency and wisdom of the Jewish people who did not know how to kill but who knew how to cure, teach, invent, and create. The ‘reward’ for their refinement was the Holocaust. As a consequence, the Jews recalled the times of Judah Maccabee as well as the famous combat between the non-combatant David and the weird militant Goliath (a prototype of the “wild goose” Girkin-Strelkov, a commando who was sent by the Kremlin to devastate the sovereign Ukraine). And now, when Europe is trying to persuade the Israel Defense Force not to damage the health of the peaceful Palestinian terrorists, it is too late to teach the Israelis to be lenient and peaceful: they should have protected the Jews from Hitler in the 1930s-1940s, and against Stalin in the late 1940s-early 1950s.

Glory to God, to Ukraine, and to the heroes – Europe has learned some lessons, and at the moment it is making no attempts to give the “Donetsk Republic” the status of the Palestinian state. If the lessons had not been learned, a pro-Russian Palestinian-like state – spiteful and dumb, with the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate at the head – would have been created. Quite a likely outcome! In the Donetsk area, there are enough of those who are ready to “die for faith” – even women-folk are shielding their Hamas-type militants on the barricades and at checkpoints. Just the same way as you can see Syria and Iran standing behind the Palestinian terrorists, in Donbas you can see Putin’s Russia in the form of the disgusting Leviathan, with its long tail and huge mouth, who is standing right behind the militants at election commissions, all dressed in camouflages and masks. The sweetest Putin would like to be the producer of the re-make “A Prayer for Hetman Mazepa”. Besides, movie directors in Moscow have rich imaginations – far richer than Yuri Ilyenko, the director of the original film.

For some inexplicable reason, Russia was not happy with the peaceful, God-fearing, and hard-working Ukrainians, who worked so well and inexpensively for Russia, and who were Christians with the perfect command of the Russian language, too. Putin desired to restore the war skills they had learned back in the historic past as Cossacks, peasant rebels, or militant nationalists in WW2. At present, they are regaining those skills. Thou shall not kill, says the Bible, but Russia’s neighbors cannot survive without the skill of killing. Charles XII of Sweden and his protégé Hetman Mazepa may today be replaced by the nationalist Dmytro Yarosh and the Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, or, in the latter’s place, even by the Polish head of state Donald Tusk or by Dalia Grybauskaite from Lithuania. Ukraine will be allowed to do to the Moscow proxies, who are hired from among the rabble of Crimea and Transdnistria, whatever should be done to bandits and murderers who torture ordinary people. No other way! Europe is in a state of shock: it is carrying in armfuls of American weapons and is ready to decorate the anti-ballistic defense systems with Christmas illumination.

Russia has got much impudence and many nuclear weapons, but Russia does not have Peter the Great who opened a window into Europe. Putin is boarding the window up. Putin is a character of Mussorgsky’s ”Khovanshchina”: he is an Old Believer who suggests Russia should sacrifice itself by fire in a skete community protesting against the West – the West which is rich, educated, and smart. Ok, let Putin’s actors do the job, with us watching the performance, as if we would watch the opera from the pit in the Bolshoi. The Ukrainian David is sure to win because he is motivated to defend himself and Ukraine – for the barbed wire and the Holodomor never to happen here again.

Ukrainian peasants have already on occasion met the Goliaths from the NKVD by withdrawing collectively as entire villages into the woods..Of course, it is no easy thing to shoot at living people, and the peaceful and good Ukrainian Davids are mastering these cruel new rules only with difficulty..but there are no doubts that “the Ukrainian David will necessarily defeat” the Russian “Goliath” because Ukrainians know that they must defend themselves and their country in order to secure “a better future without barbed wire and without [another] Terror Famine… Michelangelo memorialized David and not Goliath. And sculptors, composers, artists and poets will celebrate the achievements of Ukrainian Davids.” Novodvorskaya says she does not anticipate pictures with titles like ‘Putin Steals Crimea from Ukraine’ or sculptures like “GRU Agents from Russia Teach the Separatists to Fight to the Death on the Barricades.’’ (orginal article in Ru)

Treasure Ukraine – it is the hope of humankind” was Novodvorskaya’s other famous phrase.
