Turchynov called the Russian Federation " colossus with feet of clay "
Secretary of Council of national security and defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov called the Russian Federation "colossus with feet of clay" and said that she has a chance to be scattered by the Yugoslav scenario ".
"in the Bible there is a saying:" Who sows the wind shall reap the whirlwind ". It is doing it Russian leaders, predicting Ukraine Yugoslav scenario. They are popping out of his pants in order to do it, not stopping before shelling civilian quarters of Ukrainian cities and knocking down civil aircraft ", - UNIAN cites the words of Turchynov. He drew attention that " Ukraine is able to resist Russian aggression, to defend itself and eventually return to the occupied territory of Donbass and Crimea.
according to his statement, "more likely to be scattered by the Yugoslav scenario" has Russia itself, " which is a colossus with feet of clay ". So Turchynov explained the recent phrase of the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev." The history of this thing pretty hard and very fast. I will return to the events that are closest to you. Let us ask, for example, in Russia, young people: Who remembers a country like Yugoslavia? I think the vast number of young men are already struggling to remember that this country was on the map of Europe. At the same time, of course, everyone knows, travel, love, friends with the States that were formed on the site of the former home country. It was a very heavy, hard, very painful and, unfortunately, not the peace process " Medvedev has declared in interview of broadcasting company "Radio and Television Slovenia" in the beginning of his visit to Ljubljana." I remembered Yugoslavia only because I dream of us after some time you will not need the same key to remember that there was a state called Ukraine. And the existence of Ukraine currently depends on wisdom, patience, tact, and the inclination to compromise and willingness to negotiate all those Who make decisions within Ukraine. I mean the authorities in Kiev, I mean, and political forces in the South-East ", the Russian Prime Minister noted. In Western Europe the assessment of the Russian Empire as a "colossus with feet of clay" was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries and was often encountered in print. Thus, the French historian count Louis Philippe de Segur in his own memoirs, published in 1827, says that if in times of Denis Diderot (1713-1784) was a Russian and was only a colossus with feet of clay, the clay is allowed to harden and it turned into a bronze medal. This is Clearly due to the fact that the memoirs were written after the Napoleonic wars, from which Russia emerged victorious. The authorship of the comparison of Russia with the "colossus with feet of clay" popularly attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte, and even Adolf Hitler.
