What have we children driven to the Soviet Film Days remembered from the history of the battleship “Potemkin”? Odessa stairs, rhythmic gendarme's step, rifle salvos, massacre of defenseless people, shattered pince – without a teacher and a pram with a child who a second ago was an orphan. We remembered what we should remember because that's how propaganda works. This way of transmitting information was not invented by the young, capable of everything, TVN24 team, it was not invented by Miszczak or Walter, this way of making water from the brain was invented by the Bolsheviks and led him to perfection. Today, this method is used with great success, with only minor modifications. The method remains the same, only the served content changes. The system is perfect. Even Dr. Goebbels, recognized as a propaganda master, recommended his colleagues to use Soviet experiences. He knew what he was saying because he knew the achievements of Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein, an outstanding director, and at the same time the head of the Soviet-German commission for cultural cooperation.
What about the battleship “Potemkin”? This is a trivial matter, as it is at sea among matros. It all began with rotten meat bought in Odessa by corrupt quartermasters. This shows how important kitchen and proper nutrition are on a ship.
Matros, though used to discomfort in a hammock, likes to eat well. A watch is a watch, and no self-respecting matros will go on watch with a belly rumbling. So the borscht served on rotten ribs served by a chow was not to his mustache's taste. The sailors politely refused to the cuckoo and decided to go straight to dessert, skipping the second course.
Monument to sailors, defenders of Odessa
First-rank captain Evgeny Nikolayevich Golikov decided that this was not the case and ordered that the white sailing cloth be spread on board. Sailors understood that there would be no dessert that day. For dessert, it will be shooting those who have compromised the dignity of a kuk who tried his best, but even the most beloved wife will not make tasty borscht, let alone a kukka which has not been in any marital relations with seafarers. With the rest of the way a marriage relationship with the crew of the “Bronenosta Potomkin” could be revolted on the battleship “Potemkin” and so on the pages of the history of the revolutionary movement came with a sagging borscht in his hand, torpedo quartermaster Afanasij Nikolaevich Matushchenko and a lieutenant – artillery officer After taking part in the riots in Odessa and the solemn funeral of the fallen during the rebellion, Wakuleńczuk battleship goes out to sea.
The pursuit squadrons refuse to shoot at the rebel ship, so “Potemkin” intact goes in search of their Colchis. Two requisitioned barges with coal are not enough, so the battleship is trying to replenish its supplies and provide provisions in Constanta, but the Romanian authorities refuse permission to enter the port.

The harbor and the famous casino in Constanta
The leaders of the rebellion are taking a course to Feodosia in the Crimea in the hope of obtaining coal and provisions, but here too they refuse, so they return to Constanta and at the price of political asylum give the ship to the Romanian authorities. The crew travels around the world, some return to Russia using amnesty, the last of the participants in the rebellion dies in Ireland in the 1980s. Only the torpedo quartermaster Matuszenko, a slave to his own myth, cannot find a place for himself under the Sun. After staying in Switzerland, Paris, the United States, without being associated with any revolutionary movement, he returns to Russia with explosives and hope to ignite another naval rebellion. Arrested under a false name, he is in a prison in Odessa, here he is recognized and sentenced to death by a military court in Sevastopol. On October 20, 1907, Matuszenko was hanged in a Sevastopol prison.
Then the judges of the military court in Sevastopol were replaced by much more daring revolutionary judges with stars on their hats, who, together with the Cheka's helpers, wearing leather jackets, caused the black-headed matrosom to revolt any revolts, even if fed with rotten herrings. And not only them.
