Prophecy of St. Andrew
The controversy surrounding Kiy's personality arose during the life of the compilers of the Tale of Bygone Years, this is recorded in the Tale itself, in other chronicles, incl. from foreign authors. Whether Prince Kiy, a carrier on the river or a hunter in the woods, did not know already in the 10th century. Isn't that suspicious? If Kiev as the city of Kiya was founded in the 5th century, then five hundred years, separating these centuries, is not so long a time to forget such a great event in the life of the original Rus, as the foundation of its capital. Proverbs, epics, "features and cuts" were simply obliged to convey to the descendants the time of the founding of the "mother of Russian cities". But they do not find anything similar, except in the "Tale", where the scanty information about Kiev is shamelessly distorted and there is absolutely no date for the foundation of Kiev.
In filling in the gaps in this issue, the prophecy of St. Andrew, who at the beginning of the millennium traveled along the Dnieper with his students. But his very Walking is full of omissions and contradictions. Back in the 19th century, historians expressed bewilderment about the preaching of the Gospel in the Slavic lands, where paganism was strong. Supporters of Russian Normanism said that then, i.e. in the IV century, the Slavs only settled in the Dnieper and Volkhov regions, therefore St. Andrii could not be there. Allegedly, this "gospel tale" was convenient for Peter the Great when he established the Order of St. Apostle Andrew the First-Called. What was the point of the mission that drove the apostle to the wild lands of the Slavs and where he could pass, they argued in the XX century, and they still will not figure out this riddle.

Logically, it is really absurd to go up the Dnieper, to wade through dense thickets in order to stand in some place and prophetically declare that this is where the city will be founded. It is not serious to write off everything on the prophetic gift of the apostle, since clairvoyance has a certain basis, it is always based on knowledge, and not only on intuition.
In this case, the preacher knew where he was going!
Historians are also confused by the fact that at the beginning St. Andrei was going to Rome and, it seems, had already gone there, but got to the mouth of the Dnieper. Outlining the routes of the apostle's movement, researchers sometimes prove that we are not talking about Great Rome, but about another Rome or Romov, which was in the northern Slavic lands. It turns out that the episode with the prophetic dream of the apostle on the banks of the Dnieper is already a fiction. Or everything happened in a different place and has nothing to do with the future Kiev.
We also agree with the last conclusion. Here, it seems, the mythological motive of "prophetic dream" is repeated, which is very common in the ideology of Indo-Iranians. Waking up, the hero sees his dream come true, and this is something new, unusual. The description in the "Tale" of the desire of St. Andrew to convert the pagans of Great Scythia to the Christian faith, who have always been for the Greeks and Byzantines "the punishment of heaven." True, this motive was resolved in the spirit of the Gospel, as it should be at that time of the growth of the influence of Christianity in Russia.
Another thing is that they interpret this passage from the "Tale" again incorrectly. St. Andrew says to his disciples: "As if the grace of God will shine on these mountains, to have a city of great existence, and to the churches many God will move imat."
The phrase “have to be” refers to a purely Russian expression in the myth-making of pre-Christian times and was incorrectly used by churchmen of non-Russian origin. Unfortunately, it remained in the annals as a complete nonsense that defies translation. But “have to be” is a persistent formula, changing which, rearranging the words in it is unacceptable! The modern sound of this formula is "I have to be!" For example, I have the honor to be, the fact has to be - it is also impossible to modify this formula. Therefore, in the speech of St. Andrew's formula "have to be" should stand next to and after the words "great city." Then the translation will sound clear and correct. "The grace of God will shine on these mountains, when the great city HAS BEEN (manifested!) With many churches erected to God." And according to the translation, you understand that "on these mountains" there was already a city, except that it was a city of pagans with the impersonality of idols on the buoy, where political and social weather was ordered and made by the priests-diy. We can say if St. Andrew walked along the Dnieper, sometimes not to an empty place, but to a specific city, about which the apostle, of course, had heard a lot and which appeared to him in a dream as the second Jerusalem, where everyone will be one to honor Christ the Savior and the Virgin Mary.
Ask, was the Dokiev city known in the IV century? Not only widely known, but among the cities of the Dnieper Valley was reputed as the main capital city of the Scythian-Pali (glades). Its name is Borystenopol (present-day Boryspil), a city named after the giant Bohr, which is considered controversial to localize. Borystenopolis was also called Olbia (a variant of the word "Swan") and it was known to Herodotus, and this is the 5th century BC. Please do not compare Olbis with Olbia, these are different cities.
So how old is the city of Kiya? 1500 or 2500 years old? It is clear that you need to find out when Kiy himself lived.
Polyansky brothers and Armenia
We are sure that the historical data about Kiyu have been scattered over the centuries and have remained in the most unexpected sources, and the more evidence we find, the more we are confident that the legendary Kiyu is an abyss of years!
Let's start with a naive question: how could information about the construction of Kiev by the Polyan brothers get to Russia? There is certain evidence that the information about Kiev came to the monks of the Pechersk Monastery not from Bulgaria, not from Byzantium, but from Armenia. Its historian Zenob Gluck, who lived in the 8th century, recorded a legend about the three Polyansky brothers. Calling them in the Iranian manner Kuar, Meltey and Khorevan, Z. Gluck writes that they "in some country Palun ... built a city."
This passage has its 25th kadrik, its own exciting secrets. Why was the legend of Kiev known in Armenia? Why exactly in the Armenian chronicles the fact of the construction of the city was noted as an outstanding event? Historians dismiss this question, they believe that the legend about the builders of Kiev came to Armenia, and not vice versa. It was allegedly brought with them by the Slavs, captured by the Arab commander Mervan and settled in Kakheti. And why did those Slavs not tell the Armenians what is the name of "some country of Palun"? And what about those Polyan brothers, Kuar, Meltey and Khorevan, to the Armenians? The construction of cities could surprise anyone, but not Armenians. Where is Kiev and where is Yerevan, what was common between Russia and Armenia until the 8th century, if they did not know each other?
It turns out that they knew for a very long time! The Armenians and the Russians were first of all connected by the people's love for the father Kiy, for Kuar, as Z. Glak calls him. After all, he counts Kuar as one of the founders of Great Armenia!
A fact that the Soviet academicians did not like terribly. Not because Ukrainians and Armenians are from different branches of the language tree, but because the foundation of Great Armenia is rooted in hoary antiquity. Even if we do not take into account the year 387 as the time of the partition of Armenia and the beginning of its centuries-old struggle for its independence, as the state of Armenia, it took place for more than a thousand years. And what servant Cleo (the goddess of history) would allow the idea of calling Kyi a contemporary of Darius Hystaspes, the ancient Persian king who fought with Armenia in 521-520? BC. And before Hystaspes it flourished as the kingdom of Urartu (Van), described in the Assyrian chronicles as Biyana, the main city of which was founded by the “friend of Hercules”. His name, according to the geographer Strabo, was Kiy, whose name is interpreted as "Cob", he allegedly traveled with Hercules in Colchis in 700 BC.
Zenob Gluck knew (from the ancient chronicles) that Kuar with his brothers Meltey and Khorevan founded Armenia, and then went to "some country Palun" and built a city there. Therefore, it is more correct to assume that information about Kiev came to the monks of the Pechersk Monastery, and this happened in the 8th-9th centuries. Undoubtedly, the memory of the brothers was kept in our people, their deeds were reflected in heroic hymns (books), they became the prototypes of the three heroes, but this is not about this in this article.
So, Z. Gluck does not know the main thing: where was the "country of Palun"? This is another proof of the antiquity of the legend of Kie. In the VIII century, the country of Palun was known as the Land of the Rus, the Land of Rus. The name Palun and the varieties - Polon, Polyanitsa, Polyana remained in Russian epics as historicism, as well as in the self-designation of the Polyansky clans (i.e. Poloninsky).
In the 5th century, they were known to foreigners as "spalei, disputes, fires". And in the 5th century BC. Herodotus fixed the name "Sparalat", explaining it as "royal Scythians".
Actually, the country of Palun, forgotten by the 8th century, was widely known until the 5th century. The Byzantines and Romans identified it with the country of the Antes. Together with the Sklavens (V-VII centuries), the Antes belonged to the same tribe, which Procopius of Caesarea calls spores (disputes). In Diodorus of Sicily, Paul the Deacon, they are the Pali, the main Scythian tribe, which in the first centuries lived in a vast area from the Danube to the Don, "adjacent to the Volga Bulgars and the North Caucasus."
If we take a period of time of five hundred years, counting from the first century into the depths of the centuries, then the country of Palun was then known as the Great Scythia, which consisted of many related tribes. There is every reason to assert that the Scythians called their homeland the country of Pal or Palun. Its capital in the V-II centuries BC. was the city of Palakiy, the residence of the famous Skilur, now the Scythian Naples reserve on the territory of Simferopol.
And when was Palaky founded and by whom? Note, Palaky or Palakios consists of two words "Pal" and "Kiy". Pal has the interpretation of "king", it is not for nothing that "palace" is a royal palace, a club is a royal rod, palivo is a royal fire. And how does Palaky translate? Tsar Kiy? It turns out that Palaky was founded by Kiy?
Maybe “some kind of country Palun” by Z. Glak is the Crimea of the Scythian era? Ancient Crimea was part of the zone of influence of the Great Scythia, which originated here.
Or was it about the "land of the Pali" that was in Asia Minor Paphlagonia, within the Taurus Mountains, near Lake Askania? Pala lived there, the remnants of the Enets, the very ones whom Aeneas brought out from under Troy. The Enets, so named after their leader (the founder of Italy), the Paphlagonian clan-tribe, are better known in history as the Veneti. They are also vents, blames, gents, genits, the founders of many European peoples who participated in the ethnogenesis of the Slavs of the IV-VIII centuries. So, near Lake Askania, a certain Kiy founded a city, which is mentioned in the Bible as Kios, the capital of the Hittites-Pali. Tradition says that the inhabitants of Kios called themselves Kiyans, and their legendary leader was opposed to the reforms of Zarathushtra, therefore he moved out with his warrior people.
It would be nice to rejoice at such valuable information about Kia, but it is impossible. This information dates back to the beginning of the 1st millennium BC. Yes, this is the time of the heyday of Great Armenia, the city of Kiev on the Dnieper, we will be told, did not exist then.
And if we, destroying the established canons regarding the time of construction of Kiev, say that it already existed then! How, then, will the ancient testimonies of the heroic missionary life of Kiy and his brothers sound in a new way?
What does "Kiy" mean?
Deciphering the name of Kiy will allow us in any case to move closer to the time of his life. It is noticeable that the name is ancient, if only this name, and not a nickname or sacred pseudonym. All the same, the word Kiy is by no means a brainchild of the 5th century, and we will prove it.
Now "cue" (with prefix "s") serves as a suffix. Formed from the noun "cue", it recreates the adjective, completely depends on them and is hidden from the human gaze behind the shadow of morphological rules that say nothing. For millennia, the word "cue" was only a noun, only masculine and multifunctional in explanation. The complexity manifested itself in semantic changes both due to the alternation of vowels and due to interchangeable concepts.
Along the way, let us touch on our views on the nature of consonants and vowels, of which only consonants can be a syllable (stem). Whereas the purpose of the vowels is to "serve" the syllables. Otherwise, let's say this: vowel sounds do not play a special role in the creation of syllables (stems), their nature is primitive and has not changed a bit since prehistoric times. If you believe that vowels are sounds that reflect the widest spectrum of emotions, then you are wrong.
All 5 basic vowel sounds expressed and still show one single feeling - pain! It doesn't matter what kind of pain, physical, mental, but only pain is based in the nature of open vowel sounds. See for yourself.
"A" is the sound of some specific pain calling for help.
"I" is a warning sound of sudden pain.
"U" is the sound of prolonged pain, frightening.
"E" is the sound of fading pain, pleading.
"O" - the sound of resentment, contains the above sounds, has always been double: ao, io, yo, eo, oo.
Ask, how are bright, joyful, enthusiastic emotions expressed correctly? Laughter and only laughter.
So, it is correct to consider a consonant letter as a syllable. In our topic, this is K. Now let's look at the classic interpretation of the name Kiy.
"Kiy" means "king". In ancient Iran. lang. it was synonymous with "your majesty" (venidad), and it sounded almost the same: kai, ksai, sar. The latter form was transformed into a "king". How? After all, the word "kai" has one syllable "K", and the word "ksar" has two - "ksr" (ks is considered one syllable).
Here we are rescued by the ancient Armenian version of the name Kiya - Kuar, where there are these very two syllables "KR", transitional between "kiy-kai" and "ksai".
Further. "Kiy" is identical with the concept of "rod" (royal scepter). Hence the name of the attribute for playing billiards. This ill-fated stick is likened to a phallus, and they have so smothered their idea that it is just right to recognize billiards as a sexual game. What about? It all fits together. On the green lists there are a bunch of balls like eggs - the essence of the darkness of women and two cues - the essence of two men in single combat for the right, and so on. But not everything is as amorous as they say. Even if the famous writer S. Alekseev believes that "cue" and "oud" are one and the same, readers need to explain whether such an opinion is legitimate?
Of course not. A simplistic opinion, and here's why. Any word (name, term) consists of ancient syllables (stems). Their interpretation has often changed, centuries have applied their own palette of colors. To understand the original meaning of a certain word, you need to look at what informational energy it had in the Sacred Letters.
Humanity, just like an individual person, having been born, goes through all the stages of growing up. Being in infancy, it does not worship anyone or anything, it only seeks food, no more!
In other words, phallic, erotic, tantric and other cults are not typical for infant civilization. She does not know any gods, and she perceives food as a natural phenomenon, even though food has fallen from the sky, but it should be. In this "consumer period", humanity does not even pronounce syllables, but open sounds that reflect the concept "I want, give." Everything in the life of a young man takes place under this slogan, incl. sexual attraction.
Then, in the life of mankind, there was the knowledge of the world, primarily of nature, animals, animals. Even without deifying them, man began to play with them, those games are known today as sympathetic magic. Sounds and syllables acquired the meaning of "magic", which later became incantations.
And only during the period of worship of the Mother-Nurse did humanity realize that in the very idea of the birth of life there is a sacrament associated with a woman in childbirth, with the Image, but not with the symbols of the genital organs. Those were like magic accessories in agrarian-phallic cults in the adolescent stage of human development, but not toys in the public domain. And this is exactly how S. Alekseev sees the worship of the phallus - cue, which the Trypillians allegedly performed on the site of the future Kiev. Believe me, in those days people were less sexually preoccupied than they are now, because they were physically healthy and strong. It is only the civilization of impotent people who will invent rubber phalluses and chocolate butts, male genitals in ancient times were often sacrificed (to fire, water, earth as a nurse), but this had its own meaning, cruel, of course, therefore tragic. And the beating of the forehead in front of the phallus sticking out on the Maidan, as the Russian writer sees it, is not a tragedy, but cheap acting. It is a product of the modern mind, from which there is certainly grief!
The primary meaning of the word "cue" originated at the stage of human knowledge of the world, and was perceived as a magic syllable K. He personified not just a person, but the main one among people - the Priest, who was the Messenger, the Witch Doctor, the Prophet, the Teacher. The priest showed his fellow tribesmen for the first time how through magic K one can communicate with heaven. I mean, at the dawn of civilizations, there were people who knew what the Earth's Information field was and how any object, living or inanimate, contacts it.
K is a curious molecule in ancient information, to which the Sumerians, Atlanteans, Aryans, Incas, creators of the Celestial Empire, the Land of the Rising Sun, the Roof of the World and other terra incognito are connected. From the Sacred Writings into the languages of the world, the "beginning of beginnings" K passed, for example, in Sanskrit it is a god and a king, a deity and a totem. Rarely a tribe did not have the syllable K or its reproductive sounds G, X in its name. If we were to compile a dictionary of world languages, then the words with the syllable K in it would be more than all others.
Answering the question, what does “cue” mean, let's say in monosyllables, it is a magical likeness of everything and everyone.
Who was transported by the carrier?
What is our belief that Kiy was a boatman based on? On our, Russian, laziness with the motto "Well, so what?". Too lazy to move your brains that the carrier on the river, i.e. a person of simple blood, and a prince are incompatible occupations. If you believe that the principle “from rags to riches” is at work here, then you simply do not know what this principle is connected with, what cult gave rise to it, and whether such a reincarnation is suitable for the Kiy-carrier. Doesn't fit at all. When you read in historical works about serious debates around the personality of Kiy: he was a boatman, a nee plebeian, and now he built a city, you don't even know how to fend off deeply scientific nonsense. Supporters of Kiy's princely origin say: in order to be called a town planner, you have to be a doer in this area, educated by a person. Of course, the boatman will not build a city. Not some village behind the tyn, but a polis, which can compete with Rome with its architecture, harmoniously inscribed in the landscape!
But you know, for the construction of a city, being a prince is not enough and it is not enough to know the construction business. You need to be able to choose a suitable place, make, as they say now, the layout and not spend a day or two on the foundation - here the city will be founded! Months or even years.
Do you remember how in antiquity they treated the emergence and development of crafts and other technologies? A ban was imposed, in other words, a veto. The knowledge of masons, foundry workers, blacksmiths, etc. was used under the supervision of the priests. The priests gave or did not give the "go-ahead" for any human activity. Cities and temples were not built without their permission.
Therefore, let us leave Kiy the boatman as a nee plebeian to lovers of Byzantine fairy tales and tell the truth that two millennia were hidden from us: Kiy was a born Brahman (Rahman). He was the Great Priest.
Let us recall the Cimmerian Charon, who migrated into ancient Greek myths as such a gloomy, ruthless creature who lived at the end of the world, where there was an entrance to Hades, the kingdom of Cora. She was especially revered in Kerch as Demeter. So, Charon was her priest, ferrying the souls of the dead by boat across the river Leta.
According to our reconstruction, the mythical Hades (aka Valhalla, Iriy, Elysium, etc.) is a historical place and was located on the Kerch Peninsula, specifically in the area of the current ferry, where there was once the Sea of Atlanteans (according to Plato), which disappeared after the Dardanian flood, in the II millennium BC. This place, masterfully described in the myths of Hellas, served our ancestors as a kind of huge natural necropolis where burials were carried out.
It must be said that Cora and Guerry are cognate words of ritual purpose, this is a farewell cry, this is God's punishment, this is grief, but above all they reflect the concept of “hero”, that is, fallen warrior killed in battle.
Gerry is a legendary burial ground of Scythian ancestors, which the Scythians offered to find to King Darius I during the famous Scythian-Persian war. Not just to find, but also to destroy Guerra, after which the Scythians promised to fight the Persians. Judging by the behavior of Darius, he was not going to look for Herra and acted wisely, since he would never have found them in his life. Gerry were (and for the most part are) at the bottom of the Kerch Strait. Rather, at the bottom of the Pekel'naya river, let's call its Slavic name - Smorodina, which is an underwater bed of three rivers flowing with the waters of the Azov Sea to the Black, these are Don, Kuban and Salgir. Unfortunately, there is almost no water left from the last river, but the channel is exactly traced along the bottom of Azov.
It is clear that the Scythians, offering the Persians to find and destroy the obviously inaccessible Herras, simply laughed at the enemy, whom they were not going to fight.
So, the priest was the main character at the mournful "holiday" of the burial of the dead. One of his sacred nicknames among the Russians sounded simple - Carrier.
“Goy thou, good fellows, Who is there as a CARRIER at sea? Take me to the other side, Take me, brothers, bury me ... "
It is clearly seen from this text of the South Russian folk song that the term "carrier" is related to the funeral rite.
Let us recall again Charon, whose name we find in the "Lay of Igor's Campaign" in the form of Karn. Unfortunately, the translators of The Lay turned him into Karna. Etymologically, the word "karn" is equal to the concepts of black and red. They were priestly colors.
Kiy, as a minister of the cult of ancestors, wore clothes of black color, painting his face red. Apparently, black paint was also present in the tattoo, there is evidence of this from ancient Greek and Roman authors.
This is where Kei got the nickname "Carrier". And if you forgot its meaning, then it was about times very remote from Kievan Rus?
Carriers, i.e. the priests of the funeral cult were Osiris, Helios, Vritra, Yarilo, Ladon, Odin, "the father of the fallen heroes."
