Mishka Yaponchik is a legend of the underworld. Part 4. Execution of the commander

The bandit Odessa freemen behaved especially insolently during the intervention. When Odessa was occupied by the Reds, the Chekists declared a real war on the bandits. Sometimes "up to 40 bandits were shot at the crime scene without trial or investigation."

The bandit Odessa freemen behaved especially insolently during the intervention. When Odessa was occupied by the Reds, the Chekists declared a real war on the bandits. Sometimes "up to 40 bandits were shot at the crime scene without trial or investigation."

The Jap was clear: if he didn't take care of his flock, they would simply kill her. Having asked for permission to create a Red Army regiment to fight the White Guards and Petliurites, promising to equip the rifle regiment with 2,000 men, equip them with uniforms and provisions at his own expense, he bargained for himself in a new formation - the 54th Soviet Ukrainian rifle regiment named after V. I. Lenin - the position of commander. Yaponchik's accomplice, bandit Majorchik, aka Meer Zaydman, became the chief of staff. It was up to the commissioner. Nobody wanted to go to the bandit den as an ideological leader.


Of course, Mishka Yaponchik and his Odessa iron regiment "Death of the Bourgeoisie" on them with victimized skin-visual "marukhs", they did not assume what a real war was.

The regiment of Mikhail Vinnitsky went to the front along the streets of his native city, causing Homeric laughter from the time-worn Odessa residents. One of the Odessa Chekists recalled: “… Ahead is a Japanese man on a black stallion and with equestrian adjutants on the sides, behind them are two Jewish orchestras from Moldavanka, then the infantry marched with rifles and Mauser, dressed in white trousers and vests. Hats are very different: top hats, boaters, felt hats and caps. For the two thousandth detachment of infantry, they were carrying several guns with shell boxes … The anarchist Alexander Feldman, well-known in Odessa, was appointed commissar in the regiment …”After the death of Yaponchik, he would be killed by Odessa bandits who avenged the shooting of their leader.

The first battle, thanks to the natural acumen of Mikhail Vinnitsky, was successfully won, then the regiment failed. They say that the Mishkin thugs were influenced by Petliura propaganda, spreading rumors that while they were fighting here, their families were taken hostage in Odessa. Based on the knowledge gained at the training "System-Vector Psychology", you can find another explanation for the flight from the trenches of the bandits of the Odessa rifle regiment.

Under the urethral leadership of the Japanese, the skin gangster fraternity was involved in the struggle on the side of the Soviet republic. Usually healthy ranked skin follows its leader, remaining on the sidelines, becoming the middle management team, the composition of managers or unit commanders. However, the army, consisting only of skins, is not able to perform the tasks that the muscles complementary to all vectors can easily cope with.

Contrariness and natural ambitions do not allow leather workers to be like a muscle army, whose "muscle" fluidity and adaptability easily allow them to take the form of any leading leader or commander with his willingness to give his life "for the king", "fatherland" or Soviet power.

Mikhail Vinnitsky's mistake was that, saving his Odessa skin bandits from the persecution and round-up of the Cheka, organizing them into the 54th Soviet Ukrainian rifle regiment named after V.I. Lenin, he naturally did not allow them to escape from front positions.

Accustomed to skin-cutting with a knife from around the corner or, threateningly gleaming with Browning nickel, to raid "Deribasovskaya corner of Richelievskaya", to take out all valuables during the robbery and even set fire to a police precinct, the raiders used situations in which there was no obvious enemy, able to fight back or pose a direct threat to their lives.


The battles with the Petliurists were a real war with the strongest stress from adrenaline constantly excited in the blood. The exact natural reaction of undeveloped skin-dwellers, who are not able to withstand stress, which were under the command of Mikhail Vinnitsky, is to escape. Even the impeccable urethral authority of their leader and the red commander did not save the situation. The "shooters" are on the run. Mikhail Vinnitsky himself had no choice but to seize an armored train together with a small detachment of 116 fighters loyal to him and go to Odessa. On the way, he and his small detachment were detained at the Voznesensk station.

The end of the chieftain

In early June 1919, the Odessa Izvestia published an appeal on behalf of Mishka Yaponchik. An open letter published shortly before his death sheds light on white spots in the biography of the “king of Moldavian woman”: “As for the bourgeoisie, if I took active actions against it, then, I think, none of the workers and peasants would blame me. Because the bourgeoisie, accustomed to robbing the poor, made me a robber, but I am proud of the name of such a robber, and as long as my head is on my shoulders, for the capitalists and enemies of the people I will always be a storm.

Established in all provinces of the former Russian Empire, the Soviets, often relying on criminals in the struggle for power, gradually began to get rid of unwanted urethral bats and "kings" of the underworld by the hands of the very same bandits, security officers and other proven methods. Having seized power into their own hands with the help of their detachments, gangs and squads, the leaders of the Soviet state understood that if this urethral freelance was not limited, sooner or later it would become uncontrollable and would turn its checkers, trunks and finns against the representatives of the Soviet government.

Mikhail Vinnitsky, who had connections with the Odessa underground, where he helped both the Bolsheviks and anarchists with weapons, himself became one of the first victims of internal political changes known in history. The "king" did his job, the "king" was taken out of the game, not only physically destroying, but also beheading the criminal world of Odessa.

Many Bolsheviks, Socialist-Revolutionaries, anarchists and members of the Central Committee of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee themselves had extensive experience of going through prisons, exile and hard labor. Felix Dzerzhinsky, who took over the post of chairman of the Cheka since December 1917, knew not by hearsay, but from his own experience, the minuses and flaws in the work of the tsarist police, mistakes deliberately or accidentally committed by the tsarist secret police, and the unlimited possibility of bribing it. Having adopted the old-regime methods of combating criminal and political crime, he improved and polished them, closing all kinds of loopholes and holes that political prisoners once shamelessly used.

“For a revolutionary, only that which leads to the goal is honest,” said Dzerzhinsky. Did the Bolsheviks act honestly by shooting Mishka Yaponchik without trial or investigation?

Mikhail Vinnitsky was uncontrollable. You cannot put pressure on the urethral, ​​all the more to force to follow the orders of someone who is lower than him not in military, but in natural rank. Forcing the urethral to do something against his will means lowering his rank, and this is not allowed to anyone. Not wanting to intensify the conflict, which could bring additional sacrifices and the death of the remaining lads, realizing that the invitation to Kiev "for a new appointment" is just a reason for arrest, Yaponchik with a small group of 116 fighters is trying to go behind the flags.

He leaves the front, giving the order to the machinist to follow not to Kiev, but to Odessa and … finds himself in a trap prepared by the Bolsheviks and anarchists. If Vinnitsky managed to return to his hometown, to which there were several tens of kilometers, he could probably be there in relative safety, “lay low” and save his life. Yaponchik did not take into account that with the modern means of communication - telephone and telegraph - to detect and neutralize the "runaway train" in the steppes of Ukraine between Nikolaev and Odessa was a piece of cake.


It cannot be said that with the murder of Mikhail Vinnitsky, order came to Odessa, but the bandit pack, having lost a strong leader, weakened, which means that it could be easily liquidated.

Kotovsky, who went over to the side of the revolution, survived Yaponchik by only five years. His death is also mysterious and incomprehensible. There is an assumption that the surviving bandits from Mishka Yaponchik's squad were avenged on the Bessarabian urethral.
