Smerdyakovschina in fashion often hear about how good it would be for Russia its conquest by foreign invaders. Some liberals dream about the German conquest. Others have more of their young followers dream of South American boots on Russian soil. Like, it would be great if we had been under the wing of the Americans, so here they would have strengthened our economy, we would have had a life on the South American model … Arguments about American atrocities in Iraq, Yugoslavia, these gentlemen do not heed — say, with Russia would have done quite differently from us to a silk tassel dust brushed away, and it would have been like in the South American television series "Friends" (from which these latter-day Smerdyakovs and get information about American life). But that's not for you to learn the facts: South American military has been on our land. This happened during the intervention in the civilian war. For example, in the book "Russian Foreign invaders in Russia" published in 1935, tells about the means by which acted saviors — severed families, pregnant ladies who cut off the breasts were removed from the stomachs of kids hung five-year kids … Here's another fascinating material on the subject (plus there are about 30 photos of American warriors)
Check in with us … and Americans (and where they do not own nose poking?), Leaving bad memories about themselves, about what, how annoying it did not sound, segodnyaschy our youth, brought up on American action films and nurtured burgers and "Coca-Cola "mostly has no smallest concept. About how 12000th U.S. expeditionary force fire and sword "to establish freedom and democracy" in our land, these notes.
"Could not sleep without killing anyone"
The archives and newspaper articles of the time and to this day the certificate is stored as a Yankee, coming to distant lands, hosted on our land, leaving a trail of blood in the fate of the Russian people in the history of Primorye. For example, capturing farmers I.Gonevchuka, S.Gorshkova, P.Oparina and Z.Murashko, Americans have buried them alive for liaison with local guerrillas. And his wife murdered partisan E.Boychuka followed by: the body stabbed with bayonets and drowned in a cesspit. Peasant Bochkareva mangled beyond recognition, bayonets and knives, "nose, lips and ears were cut off, his jaw knocked out, his face and eyes pricked with bayonets, the whole body is cut up." U st. Sviyagino same method was brutally tortured N.Myasnikov guerrillas, who, according to the testimony of the witness, "first cut off his ears, nose later, arms, legs, live chopped into pieces."
"In the spring of 1919, in the village there was a punitive expedition of the invaders who brought flogging over those suspected of sympathy partisans — testified inhabitant of the village Haritonovka Shkotovsky A.Hortov area. — Avengers arrested many farmers as hostages and sought to give the guerrillas, threatening to shoot (…) fiercely dealt executioners interventionists and innocent peasants hostages. Among them was an old man and my father Philip Hort. It was brought home in a bloody way. It is a few days was still alive, always said: "For me that was tortured, animals damned!". His father died, leaving five orphans.

A couple of times South American fighters appeared in our village, and every time the inhabitants repaired arrests, robberies and murders. In the summer of 1919, South American and Japanese executioners had a public flogging with whips and ramrods farmer Paul Kuzikova. South American non-commissioned officer was standing, smiling, and clicked the camera. Ivan Kravchuk and another 3 young men from Vladivostok suspected in connection with the guerrillas, they tortured a number of days. They kicked their teeth, tongues cut off. "
And here is another testimony: "The invaders surrounded the Small Cap and opened heavy fire on the village. When he learned that the guerrillas are not, Americans have grown bolder, broke into it, and burned the school. Brutally flogged anyone who got their hands on. Cherevatova peasant, like many others, had to walk home with a bloody, unconscious. Ruthless pripiraniya repaired South American Marines in villages Vladivostok, Krolevec and other populated Fri At the sight of all south american officer issued a few bullets in the head injured boy Basil Shemyakin. "
And the general himself Grevs, commander of the South American Expeditionary Force, then admitted, "one of those areas, where the South American troops, we have received reports of killings and torture of men, women, children …"
More outspoken in his own memoirs, and U.S. Army Colonel Morrow, complaining that his poor fellow-soldiers … "could not go to sleep without killing anyone in this day (…) When our soldiers were taken prisoner by Russian, they took them to the station Andriyanovka, where wagons were unloaded, the prisoners led up to the big pits, which have their guns and shot them. " "The most memorable" to Colonel Morrow was the day, "when it was shot in 1600, brought to 53 cars."
Of course, the Americans were not alone in these atrocities. Japanese invaders did not yield to them. For example, in January 1919 the men of the rising sun burned down the village Sohatino, and in February — the village Ivanivka. Oh, so this reporter witnessed Yamauchi from Japanese newspaper "Uradzio Nippo": "Village Ivanivka surrounded. 60-70 households, of which it is compose
d, were quite burned and its inhabitants, including women and kids (of 300) — captured. Some tried to hide in their homes. Then the houses were set on fire together with the people who were in them. "
Only during the first days of April 1920, when the Japanese had broken at one point agreed to a truce, they killed in Vladivostok, Spassky, Nikolsk Ussuri and the nearby villages of about 7 thousand people.
The archives are stored Vladivostok museums and photographic evidence of the atrocities of the interventionists, posing next to the beheaded and tortured bodies of Russians. However, all this today is not very willing to recall our politicians (and many of them would be a shame as it sounds, this and did not know).
"American savages fun"
The evidence of the atrocities of the interventionists cited in virtually all the local newspapers of the time. Thus, the "Far Eastern Review" led the subsequent fact: "In Vladivostok on the street Svetlanskaya south american patrol, laughing, looking to the Japanese soldiers beating sailor Kupriyanov. When angry bystanders rushed to the rescue, the South American patrol took him "under the protection". It soon became clear that South American "benefactors" Kupriyanov Tipo shot for resisting the patrol. "
Another South American patrol was attacked by Ivan Bogdashevskogo, "took away his money, stripped naked, beaten and thrown into a pit. After a day or two he died. " May 1, 1919 two intoxicated American soldier attacked S.Komarovskogo with intent to rob, but he managed to escape from the robbers.

Sedanka on a group of American fighter was brutally raped by a 23-year-old citizen of K. Facts violence against girls and ladies, knights in the form of the U.S. Army more than once regilis in other parts of Vladivostok and Primorye. Of course, the girls of easy virtue, which then, as now, there was a lot of American fighters have had enough. By the way, one of the "prostitutes", "reward" of several American "cowboys" an unfortunate disease, such as was found murdered on the street Pond (where today stands the cinema "Komsomolets") "revolver with five bullets in his body."
Other certificate, taken from the press: "At the beginning of July, Svetlanskaya driving along the street in a cab, four intoxicated American soldier, courage, insulting passers-by. Passing by a vowel (ie deputat. — Comm. Aut.) City Council Wojciechowski, Sanarsky and others outraged by their behavior, suspended cab. Intoxicated men approached Voitsekhovsky in Russian and yelled at him: "What are whistling, the Russian pig? Do not you know that now is the South American prazdnichek? '. One fighter guided by Wojciechowski gun, other began applying his gun blows in the face. "
His zapanibratskim, bestial behavior of the Americans had already tried to prove to the world that America is more important than everything! Because testified newspaper "Red Flag" for December 25, 1920, intoxicated crowd of American sailors barged into a restaurant, a coffee shop on the Kokin Svetlanskaya and rough abuse to distort the Russian language has become disperse playing billiards to yourself to have fun, to drive parteyku or two …
Or here's another example of the "Evening Newspaper" for November 18, 1921 Five American sailors serving on the Russian radio station peninsula, which captured the invaders in 1918, came to a dance hall in Radkevich that Base. Much mistaking "on his chest," they were "brave it out." And when it started to play, "sat in the 2nd row, and put his feet on the back of the first row of chairs" (where Russian spectators were sitting). With all this the sailors were that "spit on all of Russian, including on Russian law," and then began to kick up a row. "
It must be said that, according to the testimony of the survivors, the South American warriors on the part of drunkenness, robbery and "indecency in relation to the ladies who made bad deals on the streets," also on the brash, shameless behavior to all and sundry, even then equal to itself did not have. They could arrange Courage in an intoxicated stupor, wanton shooting at the crowded streets on the principle that those who are not hidden — I'm not povinet! Did not hesitate, that under their bullets killed or what is the innocent people. Brutally beat the first counter and polyubopytnichat contents of his wallet and pockets. The newspaper "Voice of the Motherland" for January 12, 1922 gave completely specific title: "American savages have fun."
… In April 1920, South American, British, French and other foreign troops cleared back home from Vladivostok. Due to the changing military and political situation in the Far East, the U.S. government, the UK, France and other countries were obliged to abandon the open support of assorted local authorities in the Far East, opposing the Bolsheviks. In August, left the Primorye and Chinese units.
Longer we were all residents of the country of the rising sun (until October 1922). Under their "roof" continued to operate and a special battalion of American warriors. The Yankees, coupled with the Japanese "support" made in those years on the Russian peninsula of the concentration camp and the radio station, located in the same place. Tortured in the camp were drowned near the peninsula apart and entire barge, linking hands Stitching wire.
There is evidence that after leaving the intervention one of the divers, working in flooded sites in the Russian island, ran into one of these barges, inside which "stood out like a live, connected people." Shocked by what he saw, the diver has gone mad …
