The most guarded secret of Russia is its Past
The most guarded secret of Russia is its Past

In recent years, a war has been unleashed in the Russian media against the Russians. Paradox? No, it’s a pattern. This is war. And we have to defend ourselves. According to the results of the 2010 population census. the Russian population is 82%. According to the norms of UNESCO and the United Nations, a country is mono-national if 66.6% of the population are representatives of the same nationality.

And the Constitution of the Russian Federation says that we are a multinational country. And why then all the key posts in our country are occupied or controlled by representatives of nationality, which is only 3% of the population of the entire country! ???

And these 3% hate and fear the people, who are actually kept in slavery, and tell tales about an uneducated, dirty, drunken hungry Russia that is not capable of anything in all ages?

Even Patriarch Kirill made it clear what he thought of our ancestors in a bestselling interview about the subhumans who lived in the pits before the advent of Christian enlighteners."


He, poor fellow, does not even know how close to the truth. We lived in pits, yes. And what is YAM?

So after all, this is a key element of the medieval logistics system of Russia!

Everyone should finally understand what Yam is! This is a terminal for handling cargo, goods, mail and passenger traffic.

In the pits there was an inn, an inn, a bathhouse, a chapel, and sometimes a barber shop. And then the truckers were YAMSchiki.

By the way, do you know how "vokzal" sounds in Estonian?


They, Estonians, call the station by the “ancient Estonian” word “JAAM”. The network of pits was single, with a centralized management (Yamskaya Prikaz - read "Ministry of Transport", now).

Thus, information, passengers and cargo moved on endless territories by those standards instantly. How else to manage such a vast empire?

So for the first time in the world there was a branch of the national economy - logistics. In Europe, she could not appear, the distances are not the same. In Europe, logistics was announced for the first time in Germany during the First World Won. And you say bastard Russia …

And how did ordinary travelers who found themselves in medieval Russia see Russia?

Not engaged, and impartial?

Their testimonies are in the public domain; not all of the papers were burned by the “holy priest’s church”.


Ivan III Vasilievich (Ivan the Great) - 01.22.1440 - 10.27.1505

- Russians are very beautiful, both men and women, but in general they are rude people. The aforementioned sovereign [Ivan III] is 35 years old; he is tall but thin; in general he is a very handsome person. - Ambrogio Contarini 1477

- these are those who were once called Scythians, and for some time now they are mistakenly called Muscovites, since residents of only one city can be called Muscovites; it is as if all the French were called Parisians for the reason that Paris is the capital of the Kingdom of France, and even then with good reason, since Paris has been the capital since time immemorial, and Moscow has been it for only a hundred or two hundred years.

The emperor grants everyone freedom of conscience in the practice of rituals and beliefs, with the exception of Roman Catholics. They do not admit a single Jew since Ivan Vasilievich, nicknamed the Terrible, ordered to collect all of them, as there were in the country, and, having tied their hands and feet, to bring them to the bridge, ordered them to renounce their faith and made them say that they want to be baptized and believe in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and at the same moment ordered them all to be thrown into the water.

Among them there are many elderly people, 80-, 100- or 120-year-olds. Only at this age are they susceptible to disease. They do not know what a doctor is, unless the emperor and some of the chief nobles.

They also consider many things that are used in medicine to be unclean, among other things, they are reluctant to take pills; when it comes to washing agents, they hate them, as do musk, civet, and the like.

But if commoners get sick, they usually take vodka for a good sip and pour a charge of arquebus powder or a head of crushed garlic there, stir it, drink and immediately go to the steam room, so hot that it is almost impossible to endure, and stay there until they sweat for an hour. or two, and so they do in every illness. (Jacques Margeret).

“This country is very cold, and therefore everyone walks in clothes made from the fur of martens, of which there are a lot … The inhabitants are well-built: the men are very white, stout and tall; women are generally quite beautiful; the clothes and hats they wear, made of weasel fur, give them even more beauty. (Don Juan Persian 1600)

- Moschs are very capable of enduring all kinds of difficulties, since their bodies are tempered from birth by the cold. They calmly endure the harshness of the climate and are not at all afraid to go out with their heads open in the snow or rain, as well as in the heat, in a word, in any weather.

Children three or four years old, often in the most severe frosts, walk barefoot, barely covered with linen clothes and play in the yard, running in runs.

The consequence of this is the famous hardened bodies, and the men, although not giants in stature, are well-built and well built, of which some, completely unarmed, sometimes fight with the bears and, grabbing the ears, hold them until they are knocked out of forces; then they, completely subordinate and lying at their feet, put on a muzzle.

There are very few cripples or unfortunate people who arouse pity and possess some natural defect. (Jacob Reitenfels 1673)

The sovereign is very much loved and revered by his own people, and he treats his courtiers with great simplicity and generosity, and sometimes he takes food with them and has fun. (Ambassador to Moscow Georgy Perkamot 1486)


The main striking force of the Russian army is the horror of Europe. During the lava, they rhythmically shouted with increasing volume and frequency "VAR-VAR-VAR-VAR!" And when the distraught enemy screeched, the victorious: "URAAAA!"
