Ukraine: Kyiv City Council repeals the decree of founding Moscow issued in 1147…

When Moscow sneezes, Kyiv spikes a fever’ – A popular saying.

Decree of Kyiv Mayor Volodymyr Klitschko to cancel the decision of Prince of Kyiv Yurii Dolgorukyi on the foundation of Moscow in 1147” (AE UA, 10.06.2022)

In accordance with Articles 319 and 327 of the Ukrainian Civil Code […] repeals the decree of the Grand Duke of Kyiv, founding Moscow issued in 1147, as “a historical misunderstanding”

It has been just a day or so ago since the Russian Duma wanted to revoke their decree of independence of Lithuania. The Ukrainian capital has retorted to the Russian provocation with their own decree. As it states that it was a historical misunderstanding to found the Russian capital in 1147. Kyiv was founded in 482 and we can see the years that had gone since then.

The decree of Kyiv Mayor Klistchko will have no effect or make a standing. Nevertheless, it proves the historical ties and how things were in order. When President Putin wants to speak of colonies and areas of which are bound to not make sovereign decisions. Maybe, he should look into the factors of his “empire” and the creation of the Russian Federation, as it today. Not just cherry-pick the ones to fit his narrative or stories. Because, there could easily be grievances from neighbours back in time. If he wants to play the game of historical connections and who has the rights of a certain area. That could go to Sweden, Finland, Poland, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania or the Kyivian Rus (862-1242), which was the latter who decreed the foundation of Moscow.

That’s why in the early beginnings of the war against Ukraine. When Putin claimed Kyiv didn’t have a nationhood or such. The richness of history and such goes deep. Only a fool and a deluded person would deny that. This is why the ones his invading with his “historical rights” too was initially behind the existence of the city of which he resides and holds power in. Kyiv decreed it and the rest is history. The Duma and Kremlin should reconsider their stances. The rest of Eastern Europe and other historical factors could come into play. Which isn’t only fitting the ones Russian Empire, but fits their historial perspective too. Therefore, when you start this game… out will play too.

Right now it is was an answer of the Kyiv City Council. This decree will not change things or make a direct difference. Though it shows there are historical ties, but maybe not in the manner of which fits the narratives of Putin. This instead shows that the “colony” wasn’t always that or the ones under control of Moscow. Could at one point decide its faith. Meaning that the imperial mindset of Putin is screwed, because the same argument can be used against him and his territories. Most likely not something he wants or has sought after.

That’s why the revelation of this decree only shows what sort of political games that can be played. It isn’t only the Duma or Kremlin who can have a say or show historical documents of origin stories. This is what the Kyiv City Council did by revoking the founding decree of Moscow. By doing so they “cancelled” Moscow. Though we know there is more to this and will not make a difference.

Just effectively trolling and showing the Russians that they can only do the “dance” if they have a chance. Peace.
