- Whoever comes to us with a sword, he will lie down in the ground
- What is invincibility?
- Unity of the people
The entire history of the Russian state (whatever name it bears in different periods of its existence) is riddled with a continuous chain of trials, hardships, wars. But there is no war without victory, and every Russian person is proud of his ancestors to realize that the words "Russia" and "victory" have always stood side by side.
Whoever comes to us with a sword, he will lie down in the ground
In the long historical path of our Motherland there is no long period without wars. All and sundry came to our land. The aggressors have always been attracted by the boundless expanses of our fields, the we alth of our mineral resources, and the advantageous geographical position of the country. But all of them did not take into account the main factor - the mysterious Russian soul. This factor became decisive, and it was thanks to the breadth, nobility and peculiarities of this very Russian soul that our people won victory after victory. Hundreds of thousands of conquerors came to our land and remained in our own land: the hordes of Batu, Polish legions, Napoleonic regiments, Hitler's divisions … All and rememberdifficult, but the Russians honor the glorious deeds of their heroes!
Our great ancestors proved that the Russian people are invincible. With blood, sweat, at the cost of incredible effort and great hardships, grandfathers and great-grandfathers forged victories on the Kulikovo field and in the steppes near Poltava; defended Sevastopol and took Paris; they burned Moscow with their own hands and stormed Vienna; bled near Smolensk, fought to the death in Brest and near Volokolamsk, finished off the fascist beast in Berlin.
What is invincibility?
Yes, the Russian people are invincible (proven by history). But what is it like to be an invincible people? How is this achieved, by what means? If you think about it, there are several things that are inextricably linked:
The invincible people are the people. The most common, the most simple. They can have completely different attitudes towards the rulers (sometimes even negatively), they can have completely different political or religious views, belong to completely different nationalities, but everyone stands shoulder to shoulder if you need to protect your homeland. And in this unified impulse, they sometimes do the impossible, winning in spite of circumstances and common sense. Any war brings thousands of unknown deeds of these nameless heroes
- Invincible people are outstanding leaders and military leaders. Alexander Nevsky and Dmitry Donskoy, Ivan the Terrible, Minin and Pozharsky, Peter I and Catherine the Great, Suvorov, Kutuzov, Bagration, Nakhimov, Benkendorf, Brusilov, Budyonny, Kotovsky, Rokossovsky, Konev, Zhukov, Stalin - these and many thousands of otherscommanders and rulers took on the responsibility of leading people into battle and forging the Victory.
- The invincible people are the rear. When men take up arms and go to war, and their place is taken by wives and children. To cultivate the land, to work in plants and factories, to treat the wounded and care for the weak, to supply the front with everything necessary - all this exorbitant burden falls on the fragile shoulders of those who remain. This is a very heavy responsibility, this is a huge difficulty, but if there is a strong rear, if there is somewhere to return after the war, then the participants will definitely return with a victory. Historically proven!
- The invincible people are us. We who are now living; we, for whose sake all those accomplishments of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were, we are that very invincible people! As long as we remember their accomplishments, as long as we do not forget their feat, as long as we understand the value of their life, no one can break us, because we have a part of them.
Unity of the people
And under no circumstances should we forget that our strength lies in our unity. It does not matter at all what surname this or that person bore and what nationality he was. Barclay de Tolly, Bagration, Benkendorf, Kappel, Bagramyan, Stalin - they were all no less Russian than Menshikov, Nakhimov, Suvorov, Kutuzov, Samsonov, Zhukov. Because they all fought for their homeland - for Russia. For the country in which they were born, grew up and for which they considered it an honor to fight and die. And the banner over the Reichstag was hoisted by Mikhail Egorov from Smolensk, Oleksiy Berest from Ukraine and Megrel MelitonKantaria. Remember: when people are united, they are invincible!
Peace be with you!
