100 days of Russia’s war against Ukraine showed that there are no ” fraternal peoples “, because both countries are separated by a civilizational abyss.

Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, announced this on Telegram.play video

In his opinion, the first 100 days of the war can be characterized as “the time of parting with illusions and finding out who is who.”

In particular, he noted that the Russian army has destroyed the myth in which it has invested billions of money for decades.

“She showed: there is no” second army of the world “- this myth remained in Bucha. But there is an army of executioners, rapists and marauders who kill civilians in order to take home a washing machine or underwear,” added the adviser to the head of the OP.

“Ukrainians have shown: there are no “fraternal peoples”, “common culture”, and it’s not about “politicians who are at war”. It’s just that there is a civilizational abyss between us. Ukrainians showed: there will never be a “Russian world” here – it is completely buried under the ruins Mariupol, and with it the “common cultural space”,” Podolyak stressed.

“But along with the separation (from the Russian-Soviet heritage) there was also an initiation – the disappearance of the inferiority complex and the birth of subjectness. Not only international subjectivity (when Lavrov complains not about “external control”, but that Kyiv “requires weapons from partners” ), but also mental,” Podolyak stressed.

He noted that Ukraine is no longer looking for an answer to the question of its identity from its neighbors, looking either at Europe or at Russia.

“We know that we are part of the European democratic family and bearers of the values ​​of the free world. But we also know that we are Ukrainians. And we are leaders,” the adviser to the head of the Presidential Office said.

“We no longer dream of emigration and a happy life “there”. We know that the best “here” is not only morally, but also at the level of service and comfort, and our passport is the most beautiful. We are no longer interested in “someone’s dream”, because its own Ukrainian dream was born. A free, independent, strong, democratic, prosperous, rich Ukraine is a symbol of courage, courage and a center of power in the European region,” Podolyak stressed.

At the same time, he added that this dream still needs to be defended, because the enemy has not yet been defeated.

“And yes, now we (society) know exactly what we are fighting for and what our ancestors gave their lives for,” Podolyak stressed.

    That’s exactly like I see it, too.
