The essence of Russia.

Recently, the Russian patriotism ceased to be considered extremism.
The tone of the semi-official propaganda suddenly reversed, and even
obvious "old school" liberals beat their breasts, swearing allegiance
to Russia. But here comes the tricky part which is hidden in the
understanding of the term "Russia" - for different people this term
has different meaning. So, in the eyes of the ruling "elite" Russia is
a warehouse of natural resources that they can shamelessly exploit. So
for this so called Russian elite, the Russian people is considered an
annoying burden, diverting some of the funds and being a source of
constant danger - who knows when people will awake and kick the asses
of robbing crooks?
Others are falling into heresy of statism, seeing Russia as The State
only and care only about its power,strength and greatness no matter
who occupies/populates the country. For these people Russia is
perceived as just geopolitical form without human content.
A Third kind of people, funnily enough calling themselves
"nationalists" in the name of "purity of blood", advocates the
rejection of the "non-Russian" territories. They want to reduce the
size of present Russia to the Moscow principality of the young Ivan
the Terrible times (up to the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan), but
populated exclusively by ethnic Russians.
Some religious Orthodox people identify Russia with the territory of
Russian Orthodoxy only, which certainly ends in areas "populated by
There are other views on what Russian patriotism is, but not worth
mentioning. That's why it is so important to clarify definition of

In fact, everything is simple. The ancient Greeks wrote that if you
want to know about something you can only do it by knowing it's its
essence. But the essence is composed different of parts, and if one
part is removed, according to Aristotle, this will eliminate the core
all together. What are the essential parts of Russia then?
Generally every country consists of three main parts, namely the
state, territory and population. Structurally, Russia is not an
exception - it is the state as a system of institutions operating in
the territory, which is designated by the State border and in which
people live, which are the citizens of the state.
The government we have is about the same as the others have, there is
no particular specificity, all states are more or less the same. It is
a formal, but an essential attribute, without which no country can
exist, including Russia. Having your own management tool in the form
of state makes the people which formed its nation, dramatically
increasing the chances of survival.
The specifics of the territory is not formal, but an essential thing,
because the combination of landscape, climate, flora, fauna and other
natural factors differs in each country, constitute a special living
space, which distinguishes the countries from each other. No country
can exist with loss of it's own specific territory, that is obvious.
For example it is impossible to move Russia to Africa or to America.
Principally it is possible to create a state with the same name and
the population, but without the Russian geography it will not be
History knows of such experiments. Thus, the Bolsheviks tried to
create an analogue of Israel in the Soviet Far East, the German Nazis
with the project to do something similar in Madagascar, and Jewish
activists in the Soviet Union wanted to beg the authorities for a
similar project in the entire Crimea. None of this happened and could
not happen, because there is no Israel without its ancestral lands,
which took place on the ethnogenesis of the Jewish people. Caricature
substitutes like "New" York, built by the English colonists in
America, and "New" Orleans, created by the French and other attempts
of immigrants to build a "new home" in the likeness of the old one
never became like the old homeland. The soil is different and
therefore the result is also different from original.

There is only one native land people can have, and it is the territory
in which the nation was formed in its present form. It is no
coincidence that Israel was reborn in the land of their ancestors, and
not anywhere else in the Middle East. Jewish people can not settle
down elsewhere. Some Jews and Jewish communities can live elsewhere,
but the people as a whole, capable of creating a state can't. There
are objective reasons to it.
After all, life is nothing but an exchange of matter and energy with
the environment. The body adapts to the conditions of living space.
Over time, evolution and change of generations forms favorable
adaptations, physiological and psychological, which are being fixed
and genetically inherited. Humans are born with a congenital
predisposition of matter and energy, a metabolism of its people
familiar with the natural environment and on home soil this exchange
is the best way.
Russian people's Native land is a Central Russian plains. The
natural conditions of this region have left it's mark on the way of
life and national character. It is not the most favorable habitat, to
put it mildly. In such a harsh and cold climates, others tend not to
live, and in any case, no one was able to create in such difficult
circumstances a great civilization, similar to Russian.
The Russian phenomenon became the part of the Aryan biological
race.These people did not migrate to India and Iran after the natural
disaster described in the Indian Vedas three and a half thousand years
ago, but remained on the European part of modern Russia (including
Ukraine and Belarus). The combination of resilience and the creative
potential of the Aryan race (the new living space alien Aryans also
built great civilizations - Indo-Aryan and Iran-Aryan) with the harsh
natural environment has created a unique bio-social community of
people as the "Russian people".
Blood and land - became over time, the state, "Russia", which
cemented and protected the peoples unity. Both essential parts of
determining the existence of Russia as a whole. In a land of Aryan
blood has spawned other human communities, in particular Indo-Aryan
and Iran-Aryan. At the same time other blood formed on Russian soil
other communities - so-called "small nations" of Russia.
Small nations is also a structural part of Russia as a state. But
these parts are not significant in the sense that with the
"elimination" of any of them Russia as a whole is not "eliminated".
The collapse of the Soviet Union demonstrated this quite clearly. Even
a temporary disconnection of the Russian nation, Ukraine and Belarus,
Russia has not turned into something else. Formal destruction of the
state (USSR) did not affect the Russian national identity, because of
their Aryan blood and the Russian land did not disappear. The format
of a State is not natural, but a man-made entity. Today, the format is
of one kind, tomorrow of another, today some parts are disconnected,
tomorrow will be reunited again, and the relocation of sums does not
change the total sum.
The main things are blood and earth (or, as the classics said "blood
and soil"), and the state is necessary in order to protect them. The
Soviet state was not up to the challenge because of it's anti-Russian
orientation, but the damage from the collapse of the empire is
significant in that it relates to the Russian people and Russian land.
The falling away of the non-Russian border regions does not affect the
essence of Russia, though weakened the nation, reducing its living
space and making it more vulnerable to foreign military and political
Thus, Russia is the Russian blood, Russian lands and the Russian
state. This is its natural state. The current Russophobic
administration disrupts the harmony between its main parts, and
nature, including social nature. Hence the fundamental internal
instability of the Russian state in its present form, which can be
overcome only through the establishment of the country's Russian
national power.
