In a recent post scriptum to one of his articles, Israel Shamir mentioned the trial of a Holocaust denier in Russia, a professor at Perm University called Roman Yushkov.

Yushkov’s “crime” was to approvingly repost a 2005 article by Anton Blagin, which is pretty much what it says on the tin: “Jews! Return Germans their Money for their Scam with the Six Millions!” Now just to be clear, I consider the broad contours of the Holocaust as presented in standard narratives to be true, and nothing I have read in the past couple of weeks of intensive discussion on this topic at The Unz Review has caused me to substantially revise this opinion. Blagin’s essay is no exception, which basically boils down to the argument that the Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe didn’t have it so bad on the basis of a couple of photos of apparently well-fed freed Jewish internees.

However, as a free speech absolutist, this is all quite irrelevant, so it has been good to hear that on September 5, Yushkov announced that he had been cleared under Article 354.1 (“rehabilitation of Nazism”).

roman-yushkov-extremist-post Unfortunately, celebrations are premature:

There is a nuance: The jury did find me guilty of insulting human dignity on the basis of nationality (Article 282) for my post “It’s Time to Stop Feeding Foreigners.”

Here are a couple of my past posts on Article 282, the primary “hate speech” law in Russia, usage of which has proliferated in proliferated in recent years and has come to affect more and more completely incidental people:

Incidentally, our resident Ukrophiles may be amused to hear that Egor Prosvirnin, Chief Editor of Sputnik & Pogrom and an energetic proponent of the Russian Spring, was almost charged under this law in 2015 – for “insulting the feelings of the Ukrainian people.” Fortunately, even the sovok cretins at the Center Against Extremism realized that charging him for this at a time when the Ukrainians were shelling Russian cities in the Donbass would look pretty weird, to say the least, and the charges were quietly dropped.

Anyhow, back to Roman Yushkov’s plight. In a recent post, he presented the article for which he potentially faces jail time (now only available as scans from the prosecution’s documents – see photos right).

Here’s a rough translation:

TIME TO STOP FEEDING FOREIGNERS!

This table convincingly answers the question of why we don’t need the USSR to come back, and why it should have collapsed. Because it was a big banquet at Russians’ expense. Russians in Russia and Belorussia [fed] the ethnic minority peripheries.

ussr-transfers

Who Produced and Consumed. Left – production; Middle – consumption; Right – balance; List of countries – RSFSR, Belorussia, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Lithuania, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Latvia, Estonia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Armenia, Tajikistan.

The table in question is directly drawn from an article by Alexander Zapolskis (Who Fed Who in the USSR and Who Lost Most from its Collapse) published in 2017 in Komsomolskaya Pravda, one of the highest circulation newspapers in Russia.

Consumption was especially lavish, of course, in the Caucasus… as we can, the Armenians ate enough for three; the Georgians – for four, while producing nothing. Those of us who grew up in the USSR remember well this obvious state of affairs: “Georgians” was a synonym for a millionaire, plenty of anecdotes about Georgians getting into a taxi with a briefcase while explaining that it is their wallet; how all the Perm restaurants were filled with Armenians and Georgians.

The great justice of our times is that the situation has now changes: Georgians are no longer synonyms for well to-do hucksters, but for thieves in Moscow railway stations, while the Armenians are now laying asphalt on the streets of Perm! Why? Why did the Tajiks and Uzbeks come here for earnings? Because we stopped feeding them all, and they can no longer eat three times more than they produce, as in the USSR.

Why do we in Russia now live quite well, why do Russians live better than they ever have in history – even if some continue to complain about poverty? Why has everyone who wants it bought a car? Even though we now work far less than in the USSR, and produce a lot less industrial and agricultural produce? Because we stopped feeding freeloaders!

And when the current power for some reason accepted Armenia and Kyrgyzstan into the Eurasian Economic Union, who we don’t need at all, who produce nothing and have negligibly small consumer markets, I ask, “Why??? Why do we need them??? Why is it again necessary for us to feed someone???” Because this is how it will end, Russians can help but give what belongs to them to blacks, otherwise they would no longer be Russians.

And when in this context somebody like Alexander Prokhanov [AK: a Soviet nationalist, or: "Stalinism is true Marxism, and that’s awesome"], a good publicist and writer, with whom I have warm personal relations, calls us to rebuild a Eurasian empire and hang these blacks around on our necks again, I shout, “NO! Never! No brotherly peoples! No more of this black underbelly, breeding like cockroaches, at our expense. Stop with this great self-destructive Russian generosity!”

That’s it. This post is essentially an economic history of transfers between the Soviet republics, or more specifically, how they benefited ethnic minority republics at the cost of the Russian core, coupled with a contemporary demographic analysis. Unlike Holocaust denial, this is not so much a conspiracy theory as a collection of banal facts that are attested to in countless academic sources, leavened with a few of the author’s normative assessments.

However, this case is hardly unprecedented. In a near mirror episode, one Russian nationalist, Konstantin Krylov, got convicted under Article 282 for his considered and entirely mild-mannered position on the issue of federal transfers to the Caucasus: “It it time to do away with this strange economic system.”

So much for life under the Putlerreich (“Godfather of Extreme Nationalism” according to Hillary Clinton).

Conclusion: You can deny the Holocaust all you want, and you won’t go to jail – at least for the time being. But God forbid you say something that “triggers” Jugashvili’s compatriots and it’s off to the Gulag with you.

As I pointed out in Country 282, while Jews are near the top of the Great Chain of Racial Privilege in the West, in Russia that coveted place is occupied by Caucasians. Could it be that ZOG is simply jealous? ;)

  1. Because this is how it will end, Russians can help but give what belongs to them to blacks, otherwise they would no longer be Russians.

    I have a hypothesis that deep within every Yamnaya descended nation, is the Eternal Cuck, who yearns to burn it all and give it all away. You just need enough stability and wealth to allow this tendency to come out and express itself fully. Sad!

    Possible, though I’m not so sure that other smarter populations are immune to this.

  3. I agree about free speech absolutism (in our age, we won’t control censorship anyway), but I think the subsidies cannot be stopped, because they are cheaper than a strong military occupation, while ethnic cleansing is not feasible. The only issue is that all subsidies should be tailored in a way that having children should be discouraged, while at the same time children should be encouraged among the productive ethnicities, especially among the core population (that is, Russians).

    This morning I heard the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Barry “kill meeting every Thursday” Obama stating that Republicans have deserted their “historical goal of fighting Communism”, by befriending “the chief of the KGB”. So, about three lies in a single phrase.

    But then he went on to say that Americans must reject “Nazi-style racism”. This was a more subtle manipulation, along the lines of Skripal being a “Russian” spy. The fact is anti-Black racism is not Nazi-style. Hitler didn’t give a damn about Blacks. Anti-Black racism is most correctly described as “American-style racism”.

    You should emphasize your 25% Caucasian admixture then, to advance your position in Russian society. Infiltrate the Kremlins, become a cog in the COG! :D

    Only a few strangers on your English language blog will know that you are secretly loyal to the 75% of your blood and you are waiting for the right moment to establish the Russian Karlinreich.

    It would be interesting to see Ukrainian data separated for Novorossiya and western Ukraine. Basically, I want to see just how these two parts of Ukraine compare both to each other and to the rest of the USSR.

    He might not have been as concerned about them compared to other racial problems in Europe, however he did mention (correctly) in Mein Kampf the danger of blacks from the French colonies swamping France and thus posing a demographic threat right on the borders of Germany.

    Off topic: I finally visited Rational Wiki. What the fuck is this website? Everyone is an asshole in the talk section and no one wants to hear any rebuttals. Every entry is written in a rant-like asshole tone (I have nothing against assholes but when you’re wrong and an asshole…….).

    Is this a university project or something?

    Nice page on Karlin. I didn’t know you were a crypto-Nazi. Awesome dude.

  10. @Max Payne

    Whatever are you talking about, dude? It’s an excellent, very objective site that’s obviously written by intelligent, level-headed, completely non-ideological people.

    Steve Sailer (born 1958) is a racist, misogynist, white supremacist, anti-Semite, Islamophobe, homophobe, classist, ableist, transphobe, transmisogynist, xenophobe, pseudo-scientist and all-round champion dickhead…

    I’m not a lawyer but much of the stuff published seems like libel if there is anything left of that law. They are using any thought process that does not agree with them as racist, pseudoscience and antisemitic. Of course, if you check the Incorporation paper has no one is listed. They hide behind fake names on their site.

    I would like to see just one lawsuit take these fucks to court and make them define their terms because I think they would be surprised at what an jury of average Americans might deliver.

  14. So would I get charged in Russia under Article 282 for saying “Ukraine is a fake and gay country full of sodomites”?

    The word ” black “in the Russian language (in this context) is offensive, something like” nigger”, but for the peoples of Central Asia and the Caucasians. Yushkov’s analogue would be a hypothetical Professor from Arizona who published the article ” Stop feeding niggers”. I categorically against similar trials, however insults in article written by Yushkov really are, in this the court is absolutely right.

    No. But you could hypothetically have problems stating “Ukrainian is a fake and gay people among them full of sodomites”

    no need to be so harsh. RW is good on astrology, homeopathy, UFO’s, all kinds of snake oil, faith healing and New Age BS, just stay clear from anything of political significance.

    My devious plan is the following:

    Provide free room, board, and tuition for Caucasian women to study sociology in Moscow, selling this as a plan to empower minority women, while providing native Muscovite women who enrol in science programs with extremely generous “stop-the-clock” maternal benefits, selling this as a plan to fight gender discrimination in academia.

    It’s made by a secular cult led by a fat self-proclaimed genius Jew, and therefore gets more attention and respect than one might at first guess.
