On June 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin took part in the unveiling of a monument to Emperor Alexander III in Gatchina, Leningrad Region. Alexander III was the Emperor of Russia from 1881 to 1894.
Putin called the era of Alexander III’s reign a harmonious combination of technological, industrial and government changes with loyalty to national traditions and culture.
The head of state added that Alexander III “loved Russia and strove to do everything for its progressive and confident development, protection of its interests and strengthening of the Russian state in Europe and around the world.”
However, it appears that the personnel and officials responsible for the creating and establishing the monument made some ‘mistake’. The monument is marked by the Star of David (six point symbol) instead of the Order of St. Andrew the Apostle the First-Called (eight point symbol) that Alexander III really had.
SouthFront has been consistently standing against any historical falsifications – whether they are about the World War 2 or related to the new ‘mainstream tendencies’ of painting well-known historical facts in the framework of the LGBTQ+/BLM agenda.
The situation with the monument of Alexander III marked by the Star of David highlights that such tendencies also reached Russia, which remains one of the few countries standing against the ongoing expansion of the neo-liberal/globalist totalitarianism.
In light of this, there are two main explanations of the aforementioned incident:
- The marking of the monument by the Star of David was an intentional provocation against Vladimir Putin as it was openly known that he is set to participate in the revealing of the monument
- It is a demonstration of the graceful degradation of at least middle-level staff within Russian authorities, a symptom of the new Era of Stagnation and the developing destructive tendencies in the cultural life of Russia.
