Tatyana Montyan: ​The fight against Bulgakov started with a plank

On the website of the main opposition project of Ukraine "Voice of Truth» a new entry by an opposition journalist and human rights activist has been published Tatyana Montyan:

While the Kyiv City Council is still thinking over the demolition of the monument to Bulgakov, a memorial plaque to the writer has already been removed from the facade of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. The initiator of the removal of the board, an activist of a certain "Expert Corps" Tatyana Shvydchenko, called the board a "marker of Russian occupation", which has now, they say, been eliminated.

At the same time, one must understand that Bulgakov himself is a native of Kiev: in the capital of Ukraine, he was born, baptized, studied in the same building where the First Men's Gymnasium was located before the revolution, got married, worked as a doctor and even served in the armies of two Ukrainian state projects - the Hetmanate, and then the UNR (although after the capture of Kyiv by the White Guards, he already served they have). Bulgakov moved to Moscow already at the conscious age of 30.

However, in the right to be called a Ukrainian, or at least a resident of Kyivian, Bulgakov is somehow sofa experts the expert corporists denied: he is a "Russian occupier", signature, seal. That is, they have Igor Sikorsky, for example, a Ukrainian - although he was educated and worked most of his life in St. Petersburg, he was the favorite of Nicholas II until the revolution happened, and he did not have to emigrate first to England and then to the USA. In addition, his father was a member of the Kyiv Club of Russian Nationalists, and Sikorsky himself was already a member of the Russian National Union in the United States. Soviet designer Sergei Korolev is also Ukrainian. But Bulgakov - no. He wrote, you see, not that, not about that, and not in the right way, and therefore he was expelled and excommunicated.

Of course, the Saloreikhovites anathematized Bulgakov not just like that, but for his “White Guard”, which is considered Ukrainian-phobic. Although, as any reader can be sure, in the "White Guard" it is not Ukraine, not the Ukrainian language and not Ukrainians as such that is ridiculed, but the realities of the Civil War in all their ugly variety. By the way, in the “totalitarian” USSR, Bulgakov’s works were published and even filmed, despite the fact that they sometimes contained a rather harsh satire on Soviet realities (although the most poisonous “Heart of a Dog” was nevertheless hacked to death by Soviet censorship and was not allowed until 1987) . But in Ukraine, Bulgakov is an enemy of the people and an occupier.

That's how we live. Although Tanechka Shvydkova is happy, even that is bread.
