What do you think of this poem: Славянам - Тютчев (I am sorry if it is somewhere else mentioned)?

Славянам

Привет вам задушевный, братья,
Со всех Славянщины концов,
Привет наш всем вам, без изъятья!
Для всех семейный пир готов!
Недаром вас звала Россия
На праздник мира и любви;
Но знайте, гости дорогие,
Вы здесь не гости, вы – свои!

Вы дома здесь, и больше дома,
Чем там, на родине своей,-
Здесь, где господство незнакомо
Иноязыческих властей,
Здесь, где у власти и подданства
Один язык, один для всех,
И не считается Славянство
За тяжкий первородный грех!

Хотя враждебною судьбиной
И были мы разлучены,
Но все же мы народ единый,
Единой матери сыны;
Но все же братья мы родные!
Вот, вот что ненавидят в нас!
Вам не прощается Россия,
России – не прощают вас!

Смущает их, и до испугу,
Что вся славянская семья
В лицо и недругу и другу
Впервые скажет: – Это я!
При неотступном вспоминанье
О длинной цепи злых обид
Славянское самосознанье,
Как божья кара, их страшит!

Давно на почве европейской,
Где ложь так пышно разрослась,
Давно наукой фарисейской
Двойная правда создалась:
Для них – закон и равноправность,
Для нас – насилье и обман,
И закрепила стародавность
Их, как наследие славян.

И то, что длилося веками,
Не истощилось и поднесь,
И тяготеет и над нами –
Над нами, собранными здесь…
Еще болит от старых болей
Вся современная пора…
Не тронуто Коссово поле,
Не срыта Белая Гора!

А между нас – позор немалый, –
В славянской, всем родной среде,
Лишь тот ушел от их опалы
И не подвергся их вражде,
Кто для своих всегда и всюду
Злодеем был передовым:
Они лишь нашего Иуду
Честят лобзанием своим.

Опально-мировое племя,
Когда же будешь ты народ?
Когда же упразднится время
Твоей и розни и невзгод,
И грянет клич к объединенью,
И рухнет то, что делит нас?..
Мы ждем и верим провиденью –
Ему известны день и час…

И эта вера в правду бога
Уж в нашей не умрет груди,
Хоть много жертв и горя много
Еще мы видим впереди…
Он жив – верховный промыслитель,
И суд его не оскудел,
И слово царь-освободитель
За русский выступит предел…

Федор Иванович Тютчев
(начало мая 1867.)

  • Noone? Should we translate it?
  • @Joca I put it into a translator and the text said that all Slavs are welcome in Russia and that we should stick together and the enemies are somewhere else, not among us. I love it.
  • Me too! And somehow I didn't hear about it until recently...
  • Greetings to you sincere, brothers,
    From all Slavic ends,
    Greetings to all of you, without confiscation!
    For everyone, a family feast is ready!
    No wonder Russia called you
    On the feast of peace and love;
    But know, guests are dear,
    You are not guests here, you are yours!
    Just a rough translation from Google...
  • You are at home here, and more at home,
    Than there, at home -
    Here, where dominance is unfamiliar
    The foreign authorities,
    Here, where in power and citizenship
    One language, one for everyone,
    And it is not considered Slavic
    For a hard original sin!

    It's hypocritical  to appeal to Slavs mentioning Russian imperial power at the time  of oppression, deportation to Siberia and killing of Poles, Belarusians, Ukrainians - largest groups of Slavs- during January uprising (1863-1864)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_Uprising

    Not impressed.


  • And yet, we're communicating in English, and not in any Slavic language... And we're still talking about Russian imperialism? I'm not impressed by that :(
  • @Joca

    Russia cannot stop talking about imperialism to this day. So many politicians are saying Russia can only exist in the form of empire with imperialistic ambitions.
  • Russia? What about USA? GB? They're not imperialists? It's not that I'm taking any side, but facts are facts...
  • And the fact is that we're still communicating in English, not Russian... or Polish...
  • I don't give a damn about USA. Russia was killing Slavs in mid 19th during the time Тютчев wrote the poetry. Russians were killing Slavs during 20th century. Russia is still  looking at empire causing problems in other Slavic countries such as Ukraine.
  • Sviatogor Well, our attitudes are created according to our experience... Serbs were in danger of Ottoman empire, then Austria-Hungary, then Germany and Vatican... and, last but not the least NATO and USA... And we're almost extinct... And threat was never Russia... So, you see the pattern... Be cool, dude :)
  • @Sviatogor @Joca When we say Russia, we think of the people that live there, not just those few politicians that fuck things up. Politicians in general don't do anything good, whether we're talking about Russia, or China, or the USA or whatever.

    Do Americans want wars? No, they don't. Yet they are active in this area because of politicians.

    I don't get it when someone says that he doesn't like Russia because of things that communists did.

    We don't blame Germany or their people for Hitler's regime. They are not responsible for it and they are not proud of it. Why can't people take Russians the same?

    I seen Slovaks that hate Czechs because of what they did to us during Czecho-Slovakia. Like WTF?

    There are relatively new or ongoing disputes like Russia vs Ukraine or Serbia vs Croatia, but they're all my brothers and sisters no matter what. Our culture, language and history connect us.
  • Kapitán Denis I completely agree with you!
    And, just to be clear - maybe the most affected people by communists' regime were Russians. I suppose so, because Serbs suffered the most in that regime in Yugoslavia... They were killed, sent to prison, prosecuted... for no reason except for being religious...
  • There's no need to divert the blame to Ottomans and Germans in the context. Because the discussion about the Russians appealing to Slavs and imperial Russia in 1867, while responsible for oppression, deportation and mass killing of many Slavs at the same time. Russians were responsible for deaths of millions of Slavs in the last 400 years or so.

    Few know that western Ukrainians - most nationalistic groups of Ukrainians - were russophiles till 1939. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russophiles_of_Galicia
    Till Russians sent them NKVD excuting tenths of thousands and trains to deport people to Siberia that had to live in earth dugouts loosing their children and old to deceases and hunger. Central Ukrainians were getting alone with the Russians till Crimea were annexed. Russians also send volunteers to Donbass providing them with weapons supporting them financially.

    It's oxymoron reading a Russian writing a poetry appealing to Slavs.

    PS If Serbs were living next to Russia I am certain their opinion about the Russians would not be different.
  • Sviatogor I absolutely agree with you and that is my point. But I have never heard that Russia threw atomic bomb, or uranium at anyone... You have?
  • Another pan-Slavist fantasy, right? Taking into account the date the poem was written, I consider it as a hilarious idiocy.
  • @Joca

    Russians experimented nuclear  bombs in Semiplatensk, Kazakhstan causing many problems to people and environment. Such as birth-defects etc. Russians built the worst nuclear plant in Chernobyl, Ukraine contaminating northern Ukraine and southern Belarus. 18% of Belarusian territory is contaminated as a result.  I don't know the number of people died. But a lot. Even more were displaced. Russians  also killed more people using conventional weapons than Americans using nuclear bombs in Japan.

     Russians hate Slavs. They hate Slavic cultures and languages. Such as Ukrainian vyshyvanki. Polish, Ukrainian, Belarusian languages.


  • Well, everyone has right to his own opinion...
  • Sviatogor I think you're confusing Soviet Union with Russia... but, again... you have the right to think whatever you want...
