Mikhail Mikhalkov - brother of the anthem writer, SS officer

The Mikhalkov clan is an excellent illustration of what ideal opportunists are. While Sergei Mikhalkov sang odes to Stalin, his younger brother Mikhail (pictured above) served during the Second World War in the SS, and later in the KGB and with the "hypnotist" Messing.

They started talking about Mikhail Mikhalkov just before his death in 2006. Suddenly, as an 80-year-old man, he began to hand out one interview after another. His autobiographical book in Russian "In the labyrinths of mortal risk" was published in scanty circulation. It is interesting that this opus was written by him back in the 1950s, but was released only abroad - in France, Italy and other countries. No, it was not "samizdat", literature banned in the USSR. On the contrary, the KGB, where Mikhalkov served at the time, had a hand in publishing the book. An interview with Mikhail Mikhalkov, which contains absolutely fantastic, at first glance, data, was published on the website of the FSB of Russia.

But it would be better if Mikhail Mikhalkov did not distribute these interviews and did not write books. On his example, the fabulousness, legend of the top of the USSR and even the current Russian Federation is very clearly visible. They are all confused not only in the little things and details of their lives, but also in their own name and date of birth. We do not know their real parents, their native language and other important milestones in their biography. Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Medvedev, Igor Yurgens, Yuri Luzhkov, Sergei Shoigu, Sergei Sobyanin *** (for a summary of the versions of their biographies, see the footnote at the end of the article), etc. - we don't even know anything about them, but what can we say about the second echelon of the Soviet-Russian elite.

Take the same Mikhail Mikhalkov. He is believed to have been born in 1922. But at the same time, his native language was German, and to such an extent native that he could hardly speak Russian in the Soviet school in the 1930s, and had to learn the language of the Autohotons for a year before he was admitted to the general education program. A little later, poor knowledge of Russian will play another cruel joke on him. Then Mikhail said that allegedly a German housewife was engaged in their training in the family.

Nothing is really known about Mikhail's family either. According to one version, he was brought up with his family. He recalled more than once how his older brother went hungry and wore his greatcoat - and all in order to feed them. Mikhail Mikhalkov told another version - that in 1930, from the Stavropol Territory, his father sent him to the family of his aunt, Maria Alexandrovna Glebova, who had her five sons. “Leka later became a writer, Sergei was Ordzhonikidze’s assistant, Grisha was Stanislavsky’s assistant, Fedya was an artist, Pyotr was an actor, People's Artist of the USSR, who talentedly played the role of Grigory Melekhov in the film Quiet Don. In Pyatigorsk I was taught at home, so in Moscow I immediately went to the fourth grade, where the students were two years older than me,”said Mikhail Mikhalkov. In this version, he no longer mentions that he spoke poor Russian and sat out in the auxiliary class.

Further legends in the life of Mikhail become even more. In 1940 - at the age of 18, he manages to graduate from the NKVD school. Then the nobleman and the prodigy are sent to the border - to Izmail. There he met the war.

Mikhail Mikhalkov surrenders to the Germans in the very first days of the war. “Fighting … encirclement … fascist camp. Then the escape, the execution … Again the camp, again the escape and again the execution. As you can see, I survived,”- this is how he briefly characterizes 4 years of his life during the Second World War. In the extended version, the twice-shot depicts real miracles. Here it is necessary to quote directly entirely from his book "In the labyrinths of mortal risk."


“After the first escape I was sheltered by the family of Lucy Zweis. She corrected my documents in the name of her husband Vladimir Tsveis, and I started working as a translator at the labor exchange in Dnepropetrovsk …

“At first they wanted to shoot me right away. Then they took me to headquarters for interrogation.Obviously, out of excitement, I could not speak Russian for two weeks, the colonel interrogated me in German and translated my answers to the general. After long checks, my identity was established - documents came from Moscow confirming that I graduated from the NKVD intelligence school, that I was the brother of the author of the anthem of the Soviet Union, Sergei Mikhalkov. I was sent by plane to Moscow."

For four years I completely forgot Russian, remembered it for 2 weeks, spoke only German. Either Mikhail Mikhalkov really turned out to be a German Müller, or this is a banal justification for punishment for serving the Germans. Then again there are several versions of the pastime in the "Stalinist dungeons". The first one says that Mikhalkov (in order not to get confused in the variants of his surname, we will now write it in quotation marks - after all, later he still had the names Sych, Laptev, Sokolov, Schwalbe and about 10 more) was tortured by evil executioners.

“On charges of collaborating with German intelligence, he was repressed and put in a torture chamber in Lefortovo. They tortured me like this - they made me sleep on a suspended board so that my head and legs dangled from it. Then - the GULAG, a camp in the Far East. My brother Sergei petitioned Beria for my release. In 1956 he was rehabilitated."


Another version of Mikhalkov's "conclusion" looks like this:

“In the capital, he worked at the Lubyanka. Usually they put me in a prison cell with the captured Nazis (in particular, with the white generals-collaborationists - Krasnov and Shkuro). I split them, exposing spies and Gestapo men. " In the language of security officials, this is called a "decoy duck."

There is also another version. “I started publishing in 1950. For more than twenty years, he acted as a propagandist of the military-patriotic theme, for which he was awarded many certificates of honor and signs of army and naval formations, as well as many diplomas and prizes at the All-Union song competitions. He has published over 400 songs."

Another version says that "Mikhail" "Mikhalkov" began to be published a little later. “In 1953, after Stalin’s death, he was summoned to the KGB and offered to write a book about my military fate, believing that it would help instill a sense of patriotism in young people. I wrote my autobiographical novel In the Labyrinths of Mortal Risk. Konstantin Simonov and Boris Polevoy gave positive reviews. In 1956 I was awarded the Order of Glory. He began to work first in the KGB, then in the Political Directorate of the Army and Navy, in the Committee of War Veterans. I read lectures from the propaganda bureau of the Writers 'Union on the topic "Intelligence and counterintelligence" in special forces units, intelligence schools, border academies, in the officers' houses."

It should be added that Mikhalkov is being published under the pseudonyms of Andronov and Lugovykh (allegedly the first pseudonym originated from the name of his nephew, Andron Mikhalkov-Konchalovsky). True, he combines literary and songwriting (claims to have written 400 songs) with the "curatorship" of the sorcerer Wolf Messing. “And now my book about Wolf Messing, the famous hypnotist, is being prepared for publication. Why Messing? Because after the war I was his curator for ten years, but this is a separate story … ", - says Mikhalkov about himself.

Mikhalkov additionally informs about his creative arsenal: “I give lectures:“Intelligence and counterintelligence”,“Hypnosis, telepathy, yoga”,“Marriage, family, love”, and according to Shelton -“On nutrition”.


"Mikhalkov" whether he, Miller or Andronov - probably we will not find out soon (or maybe we never will). As well as information about his brother Sergei (or also a resident of the German intelligence service?) And in general about the Mikhalkov clan. There they all have a legend on a legend. One thing is clear: all these people are excellent illustrative material of what ideal opportunists are. For example, it can be assumed that if the Germans had won the Second World War, then "Mikhail Mikhalkov", as the author of the anthem of the SS division, would have petitioned them for his brother "Sergei Mikhalkov" - the author of the anthem of the USSR. But the USSR won, and “Sergei” asked for “Mikhail”.This type of people does not care who and where to serve - in the SS or the KGB, Hitler, Stalin, Putin or even some Mubarak. If only they gave a place at the power trough. But the worst thing is that such people also teach us how to love the Motherland (the king and the church). Indeed, if you like it or not, you will remember about the "last refuge of the scoundrel."

"Vladimir" "Putin"… According to one of the versions, his real name is "Platov", according to the other "Privalov" (under both he passed during his service in the GDR). His real age is also unknown, in any case, when the 2010 Census was held, it turned out that he was three years younger than it is commonly believed. KGB friends among themselves still call him "Mikhail Ivanovich".


Igor Yurgens… Before the revolution, his grandfather Theodore Jurgens was the financial director of the Nobel oil company in Baku. His brother Albert is an engineer at the Old Believer tanneries of Bogorodsk (now Noginsk), a member of the RSDLP since 1904, it seems that he even participated in the London party congress (this is the congress about which it is still unknown at what address he was held in London) … He was killed by counter-revolutionaries.

His maternal grandfather, Yakov, was a member of the Bund, and served 4 years in the imperial hard labor.

Igor's father, Yuri, followed in the footsteps of Theodor: first he headed the Azerbaijani trade union of oil workers, then the all-union trade union. Igor also followed in the footsteps of his father Yuri: 16 years in the All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions, then from the post of head of the international department of the Council of the All-Union Communist Party of the USSR he was sent to Paris for 5 years as an employee of the Secretariat of the UNESCO Department of External Relations.



Dmitry Medvedev… The ancestor of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was the executioner of the family of the last tsar - Nikolai Romanov. Yurovsky and Mikhail Medvedev - it was they who directed the execution of the royal family. The authority of Dmitry Medvedev is much higher than the authority of Vladimir Putin, whose ancestor was only the cook of Lenin and Stalin.

Mikhail Medvedev (under the clandestine nickname Lom) was the head of the royal family's security. According to his version, Yurovsky only finished off with control shots the members of the royal family and retinue. And the execution itself was organized by Medvedev, 7 Latvians of his team, 2 Hungarians and 2 anarchist Old Believers - Nikulin and Ermakov.


Sergei Shoigu… From childhood, Sergei received the nickname "Shaitan" among his fellow countrymen - at the age of 10 he helped one Tuvan lama to carry out secret rituals - from evoking evil spirits to funeral manipulations. It is customary to describe the mother of Sergei Kozhugetovich simply: "Honored Worker of Agriculture Alexandra Yakovlevna." And the surname is Shoigu. Not a word is often said about the maiden name. Although it is completely incomprehensible why her children Kozhugetovichi are ashamed of their mother's maiden name: Rivlina. Her father, Rivlin Yakov Vasilyevich, was a member of the RSDLP since 1903, and in 1906 he joined the Mensheviks. Served 4 months in a tsarist prison for agitating workers of the Putilov plant. It is believed that in 1908 he "retired from politics." In Soviet times, he, a dentist by profession, worked as a librarian. They assure that he was disguised as a "little man" from the GPU-NKVD. He died a natural death in 1942. What he actually did in Soviet times - no one knows.


Sergei Sobyanin… All his activities are determined by the Old Believers' idea: to wage a secret struggle with the Antichrist and his offspring - the big city. Chapel Sobyanin already in 1983, having visited London, understood how to wage this battle with Evil.



Yuri Luzhkov… The father of Yuri Mikhailovich, Mikhail Andreevich, really went to the front. In June 1942, he was captured. In August of the same year, somehow miraculously left the prisoner of war camp and it is not clear how he ended up in the Odessa region, which was under Romanian occupation. “Here Mikhail Luzhkov came in handy with his carpentry skills, and until March 1944 he worked on the farms of peasants in the village of Osipovka,” says the official legend. People with even minimal knowledge of the war can guess who Yuri Mikhailovich's father could have worked in the occupied territory - most likely as a "hivi" ("eastern worker").The captured Red Army soldier had several ways to leave the camp at that time: to go to the Vlasov ROA, to punitive detachments or to "Khivi". In the Wehrmacht there were about 800 thousand Khivi from the former Red Army soldiers: they worked on the railway, at airfields, in rear units, etc. There were also carpenters to bash coffins and crosses. After the liberation of the Odessa region by the Red Army, Mikhail Andreevich was checked in SMERSH, nothing criminal was found (which means that he was neither a punisher nor a Vlasov, but simply worked peacefully for the Third Reich), and was sent to the front.


Serving two (or even three or four) masters is quite a common practice for Soviet-Russian patriots. Moreover, the louder the subject teaches how to love the Motherland, the more it means that there were more punishers among his relatives, the more sophisticated they tortured the people.

Here is a typical life path of a close relative of a Russian patriot: "In the spring of 1942, Boris Fedorovich Glazunov (the uncle of the artist Ilya Glazunov) was a translator and clerk in one of the units of the German Gatchina military commandant's office under the direct command of a Latvian officer from Riga, Pavel Petrovich Delle., a very pro-Russian anti-communist, Orthodox, was married to a Russian emigrant.At the same time, Sergei Smirnov, the son of a famous vodka manufacturer, who was the Russian burgomaster of the city of Kalinin (now Tver), came from Riga to Pavel Delle's team. Gestapo. In 1945 he was extradited by the British to the Soviet authorities. Received 25 years in the camps. Withdrew from the Gulag in 1955 under an amnesty."
