The pale of settlement in the Russian Empire – the best thing was the Jews. This opinion was expressed by the scandalous journalist Bozena Rynska. Her words convey the Rambler/news citing a secular account of the browser in Facebook.
“I think that the best thing was the Jews — it is pale. And as soon as the pale of settlement and the real and invisible (state of anti-Semitism in the scoop), canceled everything. The nation has ceased to be the best, and the process went on General grounds. Pale was natural eugenics. Improved the nation… Idiots and lazy were eliminated, they were supposed to perish below” – said Rynska.
In addition, a secular commentator noted that “some people” would do well to enter the pale of settlement “and to sit there for a couple-three generations, to start the process of culling the worst and develop the best”.
Earlier Bozhena Rynska said that he considers “adequate” only 14% of the population of Russia, while the rest of the citizens of the country, the journalist was called “cheesy.”
January 23, Vice-speaker of the State Duma and a member of the party “United Russia” Peter Tolstoy said that “people who are the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those who destroyed our churches, leaping out of the pale of settlement with revolvers in 1917, today, working in a variety of other very reputable places – on the radio, in the legislative assemblies, continue the work of their grandfathers.” His words, the MP said commenting on the situation with the transfer of St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg free use of the Russian Orthodox Church.
The Federation of Jewish communities of Russia has addressed to the speaker of the Duma Vyacheslav Volodin with a request to “deal” with this statement, and give it a rating.
Pale of settlement – in the Russian Empire from 1791 to 1917 the territory outside which Jews and Gypsies were forbidden permanent residence. In the area of the pale of settlement includes a significant part of the Kingdom of Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Bessarabia, Latgale (one of the regions of Latvia) and part of modern Ukraine.
Eugenics – the pseudoscience of “breeding better people” and “culling defective”, which became popular with the German Nazis. As a result of the experiences of the German Nazis killed tens of thousands of people.
