The new symbol of the Ukrainian army intelligence – an attacking owl – called unambiguous Association aimed against Russia aggression. Analyzing the symbol, heraldry noted the importance of not only the obvious but also the hidden signs, but also pointed out the semantic Parallels with Nazi emblems.
“Of course, such symbol in the current Ukraine was not chosen randomly – there now commanded all the guys from USA, sharpened the conflict with Russia”
Owl wesayso the sword in the territory of the Russian Federation – a new symbol of Ukrainian military intelligence, and are actively discussing the Russian top officials and ordinary citizens in social networks.
The speaker of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, in particular, seeing the new logo, suggested that “in Ukraine for all ills added another bird,” because, “when all departed the eagles, for the guns had to take the owls” (an allusion to the fact that after the victory of Maidan fighters defeated and humiliated the Ukrainian interior Ministry special forces “Berkut” in the mass, or left the service, or joined the militia of Donbass).
But the head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev has noticed that this symbol is the whole “stupidity of the Ukrainian policy” because it “can’t be hostile and aggressive at all times”: “the Symbols are not for a day or a year. They are supposed to last forever. This means that the essence of the policy of Ukraine towards Russia is aggression, hostility and the desire to strike”.
Vice-speaker of the state Duma of Russia Irina Yarovaya called and did to demand that the Ukrainian side explanations, and from Europe, “pandering Ukrainian aggression in the Donbas,” – a legal assessment of such symbols power structures of Ukraine: “the Attributes of military intelligence of Ukraine is a direct proof of the state of extremism, and the behavior of Mr. (President Petro) Poroshenko – the same attribute of the plantations of extremism and nationalism,” she said.
Ukrainian side has not even tried to conceal anti-Russian orientation of the new symbols of army intelligence. On the contrary, the military advocate, Colonel, Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the “popular front” Dmitry Tymchuk commented on the logo on the page in Facebook: “Throw the Russians another thing: owl in nature, eating bats (a bat – a symbol of the military intelligence of Russia)”.
Owls and flies
The Russian public remembered another fact: in 2015 counterintelligence security service began to use the symbol on which the bird resembling the eagle of the Third Reich, holding in the paws a snake with two heads, whose image has some similarities with the Russian double-headed eagle. Flanking the emblem the inscription in Latin reads: “the eagle does not catch flies”. “Reanimated” is this fact the user of LiveJournal under the name Sebastian Pereiro.
Others have drawn attention to the fact that the owl with a sword with a new logo Gur Ukraine is very similar to the character of the Soviet cartoon 1970, “Tale”, filmed on the motives of Russian national fairy tales. There’s the plot in the final scene when bill takes the shape of an owl and tries to stab the Russian hero sword, but he cuts him to pieces.
Social media users also noted that the symbol of Ukrainian military intelligence, there is the slogan of Ukrainian nationalists: “Ukraine above all”, similar to the slogan of the German Nazis: “Germany above all”.
The user of LiveJournal under the name nightbomber-y2.livejournal.com found out that my owl Ukrainian intelligence still shamelessly stole from the Russian, because this bird is very similar in execution is present at the awards GRU and in the symbolism of the 2-th separate brigade of spetsnaz GRU.
Don’t hit the target
“Attacks Ukrainian speaker against Russian intelligence did not hit the target, because a bat was used as a symbol of intelligence before, now it’s clove, – commented the newspaper VIEW first Vice-President of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich. But of course, like the character in the current Ukraine was not chosen randomly – there now commanded all the guys from USA, sharpened conflict with Russia. Therefore, the Ukrainian intelligence agencies and the need to develop coiled them from the ocean of ideologies”.
In turn, member of the scientific Council of the Russian military-historical society, heraldry Alex Pavlik expressed the OPINION the conviction that the symbols of the current intelligence clearly discern the continuity of the symbolism of the Nazis during the Second world war.
“This Ukrainian government and builds its identity. You look at the aggressive outstretched wings of this owl – a typical eagle of the Third Reich. It is no accident in today’s Ukraine are actively fighting with Soviet symbols, geroiziruya Nazi collaborators like Bandera and Shukhevych. By the way, and the sword dangling over our country, is not accidental. In heraldry the sword, raised the blade upward, is interpreted as a symbol of protection and lowered the blade down, aggression, readiness to defeat the defeated enemy.”
Intelligence historian Alexander Kolpakidi, in conversation with the newspaper OPINION also suggested that such a symbol appeared in Ukraine in connection with Pro-fascist revenge in this country: “of Course, this is another mockery of Russia. But you have to understand that without an enemy regime in Kiev can not exist. How then to explain its own failure in economic terms? Again, without the constant inflation of the population of the current rulers of Ukraine are at risk of losing power, being overthrown by radical nationalist forces, which have now in this country, the MFN”.
Writer and futurist Maxim Kalashnikov assured the newspaper VIEW that after coming to power of Ukrainian nationalists to count on some other markings and a friendly gesture is not Russia.
“At the time, one of the ideologists of Ukrainian nationalism, which proclaimed the theory of “Ukrainian race” and during the great Patriotic war, actively working for the Germans Yuri Lypa, Jr. once said that “Ukraine can become free when it is released, Kiev, and when it is defeated Moscow”. This is the ideology of Ukrainian nationalism, aimed at the separation of the three branches of the Russian people: Ukrainians, Belarusians and great Russians, and have different direction she just can’t”.
