The Hanging Of A Tajik

I will be away for a while, so moderating comments might not be so swift for the next two to three weeks...

These photos (Source) show an action of the group Voyna, of which Pussy Riot is a splinter group of (above is one of the jailed Pussy Riot girls, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova). Normally we hear about the sexually pornographic actions of Voyna, with a frozen chicken, and orgy in a museum, but rarely do we hear about this action. It was called "Пестель на х&й не упал!" or (in my vague translation) "The crayon F@*$ng didn't fall". I quite frankly do not know whether it had any esoteric meaning, but at this action they hanged a mock Tajik, allegedly under the slogans "Churki to Churkestan" (Churki = Central Asians, Churkestan = Central Asia) and "Chernozhopye go home!" (Chernozhopye = Those with black butts, or anyone who is darker than an ordinary Slav).  

I am sure Madonna approves...

Wow. You are known by the company you keep.

@ Mark

I have tried being objective above, my information comes from the same place where the photos come from. I did not research the thing, but it looks disturbing nevertheless...

@ Mark

I see now that there is not much to research, "Пестель на х&й не упал!" search on Google churns out only 7 results, with the same information that I have reiterated above.

Yes, I meant that to allude to Madonna, about her being known by the company she keeps. I doubt any aspects of the religious controversy bother her because she regularly expresses contempt for organized religions. But she is normally very sensitive to racial politics, and tries to be firmly on the side of tolerance.

@ Mark

Yes, that's why I included her in the post...

That's just Tajiks hanging out. :)

So it is a radical leftist group supporting non-Russian immigrants which I guess this is supposed to represent Russian racist attitudes despite the fact that Tajikistan has been an Islamist state essentially since 90’s with close links to Khattab since the civil war that Putin in his ultimate wisdom decided to import tens of thousands annually into Russia without a security background checks.

Tajikistan is a secular state, it might in fact become a fully fledge Islamist hell-hole were the Tajiks working in Russia sent home.

When it comes to Central Asian immigration, Russian policy is a mess. I have watched a report recently where it was said that Uzbek women come to Moscow to give birth, abusing the system. The hospitals cannot refuse a patient, but they do not have insurance. Nobody checks whether they have medical insurance before they enter Russia. I guess background checks wouldn't be a bad idea...

Technically it is a secular state only because it is enforced by the central government but the political parties and apparatus still remain from the 90's that is becoming more Islamic due to foreign money coming into the country from Qatar and Iran vying for influence and the increase of Islamic presence and the re-establishment of the drug trade in Afghanistan and the narco-businessmen they are affiliated with in the country. Same can be said of the whole Central Asian region with student studying abroad in Madrasahs to become inducted and selected as the new regional leadership just like the Communists in Russia and China did during the Cold War.

Putin is contributing to the situation that will lead to Russia’s civil unrest with mass Muslim immigration that’s why he has to go.

If Putin goes, you will get another Putin. The problem is with laws and regulations...

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

Everybody who emigrates to Russia immediately sees the beauty and practicality of the russain language, and therefore willingly undergoes all aspects of russification. A country the size of Russia would be foolish to put up any barriers to immigration. Besides, the asian genetic stock is identical to the Russian and only thrives under the superior cultural process (rusification), leading to a true 'Turanic-Mongoloid' admixture. European historians long ago came to the understanding:

'Scratch a Russian and you'll find a Mongol'.

'Putin is contributing to the situation that will lead to Russia’s civil unrest with mass Muslim immigration that’s why he has to go.'

Interesting - seems to be some open dissent in the ranks here...coupled with this extremely weak rebuttal:

'If Putin goes, you will get another Putin. The problem is with laws and regulations...'

I'm sure that Mickey (Putin's head samovar polisher) would not countenance these sorts of displays of unloyalty to the 'center'....:-)

I'm writing from Yerevan, Armenia now. No particular Russophobia is noticeable here, and yet not many traces of Russification either.

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

I was writing of Russia, not Armenia...:-)

September 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNon Turanic Mongoloid Hack

@ Hack

I do not see any dissent here, as there never was blind following, we are all individuals with our own opinions. My rebuttal is not weak, it is you, who happens to be an idiot. ;-)

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

Leos - It stands to reason that where there is no russification, there is no russophobia either.......

September 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNon Turanic Mongoloid Hack

@ Hack

There was new legislature which imposed language requirements on immigrants, but I am sure Ukrainians would have no problem with that as most of them prefer speaking Russian anyway, just ask Gallup or Ukrainians...

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

Leos - you're really like a little Khrushchev here with all of you name calling ...it's really so childlike and BORING.....:-)

September 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNon Turanic Mongoloid Hack

@ Hack

Not quite, Russian signs are everywhere, Armenians from the lowest to the most wealthy (oh yes I met those too), all speak Russian well. However, that does not seem to have an effect on Armenian language or culture. Although I have seen a child ask parents for ice-cream using a Russian word. :-))

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

@ Hack

I am just calling things out as they are, I am not the only person saying that you are an idiot. ;-)

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

I don't even have to travel to Armenia to observe what you're speaking of. Right accross the street from where I live there are Turkic-Uzbekis who often speak Russian amongst themselves. This is just a display of the ingrained nature of the russification process (bad habits are hard to break). Their children, especially the ones born here, have no understanding of Russian, and speak english amongst themselves. I can assure you that similarly, the children of Russified Armenians living in the states will quickly shed any knowledge of Russian, as they integrate into US life. The Armenian population here though does an admirable job of maintaining its own language and customs.

Funny, I don't ever recall Mark calling me an 'idiot' during several of our interchanges either here or at his own blog....

Maybe it takes one to see one!!! :-) :-) :-)

September 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNon Turanic Mongoloid Hack

@ Hack

The locals here speak Armenian to themselves, Russian signs are a courtesy to people who are not Armenian. Who gives a damn about how children of Uzbek immigrants act in America? Sure they do not speak Russian, they have no need for that. Ask whether they know Uzbek well, that would be better. You are an imbecile if you think Americanisation is any better. :-))

September 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

'idiot' 'imbecile' I suspect that your trip to Armenia has been frought with some problems....how else can you explain the pure boorish treatmnent
you've afforded me here today...and for what??.....

September 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNon Turanic Mongoloid Hack

@ Hack

For being an idiot and an imbecile. ;-)

@Non Turanic Mongoloid Hack

"Interesting - seems to be some open dissent in the ranks here...coupled with this extremely weak rebuttal:

For 2 years I have been talking with a Russian on a forum about the need to create a genuine political party not with replacing central authority with a weak western puppet like Yeltsin but basically having 3 regional sphere Western Russia, North Caucasus and Siberia that have a degree of autonomy from each other with the strategic centre being Siberia that our party will control implementing a whole range of issue primarily among them immigration.

The situation might be beyond that now and Russia might have to make preparations for the civil war among the ethnic Turkic Muslim populations, nationalists and foreign intelligence services or take drastic actions as I proposed to avoid it from happening with the result of Russia being in a stronger position although it would lose vast amounts of it territory as a concession.

September 3, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjack

Jack - please compare and contrast your reaction to my observation, to Tomicek's. Like day and night. You offer your own explanation as to
the need to formulate new strategies for the unwieldly Russian Empire, whereas, the later once again exhibits his gross and uncivilized manners. Believe me Jack, Tomicek pays your opinions here no more credence than my own, but is less vitirolic in his responses because your's come under a thin veneer of russophilism.....His ability to be on a perpetual student/vacation lifestyle is due to his father's business ties to Mr. Putin. Life is good being an insider, isn't it Leos??..........

Oh the ominous Mr. Putin, he is everywhere... :-)

@ Hack

Also, what a hell is it with you posting your comments several times? I am in Nagorno-Karabakh, it is nice here, don't worry I will post your comment once I get to internet. You are not going to help yourself by flooding my comments box...

September 4, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

Dear Leos,

Regardless of what it is supposed to mean (ie whether pro or anti racist or pro or anti immigrant) this is a revolting and disturbing performance. I wish I had found these photos when I did my two posts on Pussy Riot (especially the first one). I think many of their supporters in the west especially amongst the Guardianistas would be horrified by them.
