Karatkevich: "Eugene, what are your memories of the questions online conference?"
Onishchenko: "I think they are dictated by the people who first heard that Suvorov — it is not the man, which painstakingly built by n» pedestal. At the moment this idol looks differently than it was previously rasprapagandavana. "
Karatkevich: "Among the issues were defined: for example, if you understand the occasion to Suvorov beat people in Belarus — not following orders, and on his own desire?"
Onishchenko: "Among the outstanding documents found such evidence. For example, in 1769, when he suppressed the liberation uprising brothers near the village of Pulaski Nut, he ordered the bombardment of the village of guns, and eventually burned her. Later, when he was thrown to the oppression of the Kościuszko Uprising in including during the assault on the Warsaw suburb of Prague, where he scored more than 12 thousand people, he gave the order to act "decisively and in Russian." And since thence defenders were largely peaceful inhabitants, rather than permanent troops, it was a direct order to kill innocent inhabitants. And later we can not forget that in 1774 he suppressed an uprising in Russia itself Pugacheva. "

So here goes: waited certification method to fabricate me to put "not the best position." I’m not the first victim. Currently Director officially in print states that methodology of historical science, which was to This time — deidealyagizatsyiya, depoliticization — Furthermore, the historian must be vintsikam, obedient executor of policies of higher authorities. It shows kan» yunkturny approach to history and to this inclines and employees. Research Institute was transformed into a branch of the executive vertical. "
Karatkevich: "And what solidarity colleagues showed in your situation?"
Onishchenko: "No, just one. After the academic sphere, the company — it is closed, almost parasitic on municipal vehicles, and now there reigns gray.
