Friends,

On May 9, 2020, Russia and everyone who remembers the truth, celebrated the 75th anniversary of Victory in World War II, referred to in Russia as ‘The Great Patriotic War.’ Due to COVID, Russia postponed the major Red Square, Black and Baltic Sea parades, as well as the Immortal Regiment March gathering annually over 10 million people worldwide.

Only a small Kremlin Regiment parade and fireworks were held, along with Putin’s address and his laying the flowers alone to the Unknown Soldier’s tomb. (Below this post you’ll find links to my May 9-10 Victory Marathon on FT, Patreon & Stanislav’s blog.)

Back then, in the end of April, Russian President Putin promised that the parade and Immortal Regiment would happen soon. And that man always delivers. Finally, he, together with Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu, announced the dates for the New Victory Day Parade and Immortal Regiment March! The dates are not at all what many were guessing, and they are a lot sooner than most anticipated!

I have to say for me and millions of others, something was left empty without the proper May 9, and it was a strange, uncomfortable feeling. Since that space wasn’t filled with memory and reminders of how humans almost destroyed the world and how Russia saved it – something that should never be forgotten, various insidious destructions, lies and falsifications of history immediately filled the void. The attacks against Russia, and by association, Victory Day intensified 100-fold before May 9th. I think Putin and many others felt all that too. Therefore, it is good that they are acting sooner rather than later.

As always, it falls to Russia the Great Balancer to balance perceptions and preserve memory. This is why many people feel a relief that Putin has made his official decision and the dates have been named!

Putin Victory 75 parade announcement

PUTIN’S ANNOUNCEMENT:

NEW VICTORY DAY PARADE & IMMORTAL REGIMENT MARCH DATES!

Due to continued precautions regarding COVID, the dates will be split in two.

June 24 – VICTORY DAY PARADE ON RED SQUARE. And Victory parades in some major cities: it appears this was left to local authorities.

July 26 – VICTORY DAY NAVAL PARADES in Crimea (Black Sea Parade), St Petersburg (Baltic Sea Parade), as well as Murmansk (Northern Fleet), and others.

July 26 happens to be the official Russian Navy Day. Therefore, the Navy parades on this day are logical.

July 26 – The IMMORTAL REGIMENT MARCH, same date as the Navy parades, will be held everywhere. Postponement till later date is a precaution, allowing COVID to abate further. The middle of summer by many estimates will be the easiest and lightest time from the COVID perspective.

The Immortal Regiment is such a massive event when millions come out and march shoulder to shoulder, that there is no way to observe any social distance. But at the same time, taking this away from people is not good.

Russia tried to do a virtual Immortal Regiment online on May 9. The event was massive and it lasted over 12 hours. It was nice and would have been great, except it was discovered that online many horrible provocateurs got out of their dark holes, hiding behind online anonymity. There were those who posted photos of Hitler, Goebbels and Himmler, as well as the traitor Vlasov (see about him below) and ukro-nazis/Hitler helpers, such as Bandera and Shukevich – all dressed in the Red Army uniforms and parading as Russian/Soviet soldiers or officers. They all were discovered. Many of them turned out to work out of the US SPONSORED Kiev and Baltics. But several turned out to be Russian citizens, followers of the US SPONSORED so-called ‘oppositioner’ Navalny. It clearly was a coordinated attack.

Therefore, a live march is a must, so these things could not be snuck in under the cover of online anonymity. I previously told you on many occasions that the lower 4D, to which the Internet belongs can be more deceptive, illusive and viciously confrontational than any physical war. It also can be completely immoral, and frankly disgusting. This is why mankind has to be exceptionally cautious not to get stuck in lower-4D, which is a dead end! This is explained in my previous and current webinars, as well as in my Patreon articles.

DID I GUESS RIGHT? MY NEVER PUBLISHED PREDICTIONS

When it first became clear that the event is postponed indefinitely, everyone was guessing when could it happen? It was early May and I drafted my own piece with potential dates. However, it never got published. I was busy putting together other pieces for May 9 on FT; and I was in the middle of my Earth Shift Webinar 11-12 recording and release.

Below I want to offer you an extensive excerpt from the original post, along with some additional thoughts. You’ll see that I correctly guessed one of the new Victory dates!

FROM MY MAY 1-7, 2020 PATREON ARTICLE (unpublished)

A Bit of Forbidden History: Possible Red Square Victory Parade Dates? Why #VictoryDay is Crucial for Preserving Truth & Human Memory?

Forbidden History: Why are humans so easily manipulated – And why do some of us work so hard to preserve the Truth & Human Memory?

Should we just forget it and be cool, like others that forget history and then step on the same rake over and over?

Or does the old adage still hold water: “Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it?”

New Re-Writing of History Underway!

Series Forbidden History 2x2

I spoke extensively about the past major history re-writes in my FORBIDDEN HISTORY
​& FORGOTTEN ORIGINS
 
Webinar series, as well as on Futurist Trendcast.

A new, very aggressive re-writing of history is taking place today! I warned about it since 2014! It is happening in Ukraine, parts of post-Soviet stapce, but most alarmingly, it is happening all over Europe, which was in the 20th century the birthplace of the hateful idologies of Nazism and fascism.

Reference to recent post on FT, by our friend Stanislav Sokolov:

After publishing that post, depicting the truthful facts of what happened during the Great Patriotic War (WWII) in Russia, FT was swarmed by various shades of brown. Nazi wannabies, most notably from SWEDEN, plus UK and US, tried to argue that ‘Hitler was a savior of Europe, and people of Europe were all for him, because he brought them freedom from Jews and Bolsheviks.’ There were personal attacks against me, and I had to close down the comments.

Today, please read the follow-up by Stanislav Sokolov. He is an observer of all these processes; he is originally from Russia and resides in Northern Europe. In his opinion, in the past 5-6 years, the process of the aggressive falsification and re-writing of history has greatly intensified.

This I did warn about repeatedly!

Here’s what Stanislav wrote to me:

______________

Hi again, Lada!

I must say I did not expect such a reaction to my translation of an article from 2013! Things seem to be darker now, then they were even back then. I’ve researched what is happening to the topic of WWII on the net – both in the English-speaking and the Russian-speaking spheres – and there seems to be a trend of blame-shifting, which has gained a huge momentum over the past few years, to the tune of “Stalin is responsible for Germany attacking, and Germany is the victim”!! I can’t believe my eyes, but that’s what is being peddled now, similar to how a rape victim would be blamed for the actions of a rapist!

This is echoed on my own blog, where I acquired one German (judging by the name) commentator, who first says that he likes my history works and writings on Scythians, but then goes to posting every lie and misrepresentation about USSR  (down to famine). I approved a couple of his comments and wrote systematic response to them, but it was like preaching to a deaf man. He just accused me of falling for the Communist propaganda and posted some links to book about how Stalin is responsible for all exterminations during WWII…

And then he posts some quite good and well-thought-out comments to my recent linguistics article. I do not think that he is actually a troll – he seems to be genuinely convinced and set in his views about WWII in particular and USSR in general. Or maybe it’s some sort of sophisticated trolling – first saying that they agree with you on some other topics, stroking the blog writer’s ego and hoping that they would win an in-pass on the topic they actually came to dispute… It made me wonder if Maggie on Patreon with her comments about censorship in Russia is another such case.

Read my exchange with him – this is the link to the original article, the exchnage is in comments: http://stanislavs.org/so-many-really-germans-do-not-know-how-many-russians-were-killed-by-their-ancestors/

And this makes me really afraid for the not-so-distant future. If such a 180 degree turn could be made in just 75 years, what perception will the kids in 2-3 generations have of WWII? In best case, the same as the kids today have of 1812-1814 and the liberation of Europe by Russia from the Napoleonic troops (with Napoleon becoming a hero of France and a kind of trade-mark) – total forgetfulness. 😦

“So many? Really?” Germans do not know how many Russians were killed by their ancestors

#May9 #VictoryDay #Russia #Germany

Re-posting this article from Stanislav as a whole! 

Link: http://stanislavs.org/so-many-really-germans-do-not-know-how-many-russians-were-killed-by-their-ancestors/

Stanislav Sokolov, May, 2019:

Victory Day, May the 9th is close and to commemorate it, I translated an article by Georgij Zotov from Argumenty i Facty of 2013, with some additional commentary from me. Despite it being 6 years old, it is even more current than it was back then.

__________

In 2015 I translated Georgij Zotov’s article Repentance of Berlin. After 70 years, the Germans have an unambiguous attitude towards the Soviet victory.

This year it elicited the following comment:

LaRock on March 6, 2019 at 19:50 said:
The war is over stop punishing Germany

To which I replied:

Stanislav on March 12, 2019 at 20:02 said:
This comment should be addressed to the USA, who are still occupying and punishing Germany. If you read the article, you’d see that it’s about remembrance and reconciliation.

However, a better reply would have been a translation of an even earlier article by Zotov, one from 2013. I am translating it below, followed by a translation of two reader comments from AiF and my thoughts on them and what Zotov wrote in one particular paragraph.

Today, with racism and calls to war and genocide being the norm on the pages of the Western MSM (“racism” is a common-root synonym of “russophobia”) and the number of the Western troops and war hardware right on the Russian border being the highest since the June of 1941, it is time to remember. For while the West is collectively shrugging off 1941-1945 as “just another invasion of Russia” and preparing for a new one, Russia remembers, watches closely and prepares to defend its land once more.

In this today’s context remembrance is the key to preventing another invasion of Russia by the West, and prevent this time hundreds of millions people being killed – both defenders, attackers and bystanders…


“So many? Really?” Germans do not know how many Russians were killed by their ancestors

Argumenty i Fakty, 05.05.2013

“AiF” correspondent talked in Germany with a lot of people, including the grandson of Rudolf Hess. And found out that the Victory Day is respected, but most residents of Germany do not know how many lives we lost in The War.

The 15-year-old Gunther suddenly had a seizure – an hour after the start of the tour. He fell to his knees beside the barracks and began to sob, smearing tears on his cheeks. A crowd gathered around the boy. Someone from his high school was calling on a cellphone, someone searched the pockets for pills. “Why?!” Gunther shouted. “How could the Germans do THIS to people?! Do we even deserve forgiveness?”

Nervous breakdowns of German teenagers in the ex-concentration camp of the SS Dachau near Munich are quite common. Despite this, a visit to the memorial is included in the compulsory school curriculum for high school. Children are shown the crematorium ovens, where tens of thousands of prisoners burned, gas chambers and photos of savage experiments of SS doctors. “It is necessary in order for this not to happen again,” the Museum employee told me. “After all, the worst of evils is forgotten over time.” That’s, probably, the case. According to polls, 80% of Germans now do not know that their grandfathers killed 27 million people in the USSR…

“Land of ice and snow”

“What do I think about the Victory Day? Oh, the Russians seem like mysterious heroes from science fiction films to me. That’s, probably, how the people, who overturned Hitler should appear. Many Germans still do not understand why Germany decided to fight with you. We have much in common as peoples – take, for example, at least a love for sausages and beer!»

73-year-old lawyer Rolf Clement was a child when the war began. His cousin, an officer of the Wehrmacht, froze to death in Stalingrad. He says, there can be no hard feelings: “We attacked, you defended. Fair enough.” But Rolf has a different attitude towards the Americans and the British: “In the Summer of 43, their aircraft completely burned Hamburg, killing 42 thousand people. Is this the right kind of war?” The Germans often emphasized in the interviews: Hitler was a monster, but they also had hard times when he was in power. They remember the death of Paulus’s army, the bombing of the cities, and the fall of Berlin. They are well aware of the Holocaust and the millions of Jews killed in concentration camps. However, the inhabitants of Germany do not know much about the seas of blood, which flooded the Soviet Union.

“For the Germans,” says historian Gerhard Büchlein “Russia is a country of ice and snow, where “General Winter” froze poor boys dressed in a uniform with a swastika. But in Germany they shy to argue on the topic that the Wehrmacht and the SS perpetrated on the occupied territory of the USSR. On TV and in press they do not forget to mention: only 6 thousand soldiers (from 100 thousand taken as POWs in Stalingrad) have returned home. However, few people know that 3 million Soviet prisoners of war were tortured in the SS concentration camps. We are horrified by the allied air raids – 600 thousand Germans buried alive under the rubble of buildings in Berlin, Dresden, Regensburg. And we have no idea that exactly the same number of people died from hunger and shelling because of the siege of Leningrad.”


Hamburg 1943. Photo: globallookpress.com

Munich (like Hamburg) was also bombed, though less so. Some “significant places” of the Third Reich survived, but then they were destroyed by the Germans themselves. For example, a demolished pub “Burgerbraukeller”, where Hitler pushed speeches (for the avoidance of pilgrimage for neo-Nazis). The man I’m interviewing is taking me downtown.

“You know,” I say to my companion. “If my grandfather had seen us, he would not have liked it.”

“Hmm,” he says in reply. “And mine even less so. I’m sitting next to a Russian!”

“Did we kill so many?!»

My grandfather was a Soviet military pilot, was shot down in late 1944 and remained in captivity until the German surrender. The grandfather of my interlocutor, 34-year-old engineer Wolf Hess, was Hitler’s Deputy for the party, obergruppenführer Rudolf Hess. Wolf himself is anti-fascist and sincerely believes that May the 9th is the liberation of his country from dictatorship. “I want to know,” he asks. “If I come to Russia, will I have any difficulties?” “Of course not,” I say. “Even those who fought forgave the Germans.” Wolf nods: “I never felt that the Russians were our enemies. And… how many civilians died in the USSR?” I answer him – about 18 million. Executions of hostages, mass executions in Babi Yar, punitive actions, automated suffocator machines in Krasnodar. Wolf pales. “Really that many?!»


Photo: globallookpress.com

This phrase is one that I often hear in Germany. “Do you want to see photos on the Internet?” I enquire. “There are SS men posing next to the mountains of corpses. There are thousands of pictures in the archives.” My companion is lost in thought. “We rarely talk about it,” he sighs. “The main theme of the atrocities of the Nazis is Holocaust.”

In my opinion, we should not forget the Holocaust. It’s the insane destruction of an entire nation, from babies to old people. Another thing – it turns out that repentance for the atrocities of the German army is very selective. Films, talk shows and TV shows are devoted to one fact, while the others are kept under wraps. Even in Austria, in a town near the former SS Mauthausen concentration camp, when I asked passers-bys about who had been killed in the barracks, the opinions are divided. “Jews, I think,” said one man. “Communists,” remembered the second. No one named the Russians, but 39% of the prisoners of Mauthausen were Soviet prisoners of war. The image of the Eastern front in the thinking of modern Germans is the snow, the horrors of storming of the burning Berlin and the the soldiers in Stalingrad, devoid of human appearance. Marking May the 9th as the day of the defeat of the Third Reich, Germany still did not realize the scale of the victims among the population of the USSR. No, we don’t need to be apologized to endlessly. It would be nice to just remember…


Prisoners of the German concentration camp Mauthausen, Austria. May 5, 1945. Photo source – RIA Novosti

One of the students, who arrived in Dachau in a group with Gunther, talked to me while his classmate was given a sedative. “You are from Moscow? Must be a big city. But I don’t even know – were the Germans in Moscow during the war?” “A lot of them,” I said to the boy. “They built a bunch of houses around the “Forum” cinema, helped to build Moscow State University, restored the factories”. “So they were prisoners?” the boy was embarrassed. “Oh… excuse me for asking.” “No problem,” I smiled. “But now you know the truth.”


The following line in Zotov’s article:

“Even those who fought forgave the Germans.”

sparked righteous anger with two of the AiF readers, resulting in the following comments, which I think are important to translate:

Alksander Stepanko, 08.05.2013:

I didn’t fight [in that war]… born in 1957. Comrade Zotov! Who gave You the right to speak for everyone!? How can we forgive the torturers?! … the killed, buried alive, perished 27 million !!!…. How can this be forgiven?! Did you even understand what you wrote?!

and

Alla Rybkina, 11.02.2015:

I am from 1949 and neither I nor my children will ever forgive the GERMANS, they buried my grandmother and her children alive in a huge pit of, and forced my grandfather to dig them in, he was Polish. My mother miraculously survived. And my mother-in-law lost all her teeth in the Blockade when she was 30, but rescued two daughters. How can this be forgiven??????????????.

These are very powerful testimonials, and one can collect millions of such testimonials throughout the country that once was USSR. I think, however, that neither Zotov nor these commentators are right. Forgiveness cannot be bestowed upon a Nation as a whole – it can be given to the actual German perpetrator of the war crimes. But what they did cannot be forgiven nor forgotten. The contemporary Germans, the young and those who never fought in that war – there is nothing to forgive them for. We can only hope to build common relations, remember and ensure that the atrocities of WWII are never repeated. Together.

But those Germans who in 1941-1945 came to Russia to kill and conquer, those who inspired them, like Hitler, and those who financed them, like Henry Ford and grandfather of two American presidents – Bush, those Western powers (Britain, France among others) who during the Munich Conspiracy of 1938 gave their active blessing to the start of WWII, thinking that it would not touch them, but would only become a battering ram against the USSR (much like the 2014 neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine).

These are the forces deserving the righteous anger of the Russian people, not the Germans as a whole. It should also be remembered that many Germans themselves perished while trying to fight and stall the rise of Nazism.

QUOTES:

The US in the past century has been raking in that bad karma like there is no tomorrow,while payback is still to come. Speaking of the end of WWII and the nuclear bombing…

There are many layers of lies in the propaganda Nancy described in her comment, which the US was spinning at the time. I bet no one ever mentioned in US history books or MSM that in fact the Japanese army and the Japanese Empire as a whole capitulated not because of the US bombing, but because Russians, not Americans, were at the time delivering a crushing defeat to Japan’s Quantung Army. This was also known as the Manchurian Strategic Operation, 9-20 of August, 1945.

HIROSHIMA/NAGASAKI ATOMIC BOMBING: Dates: Aug 6, 1945 – Aug 9, 1945

During the final stage of World War II, the United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively.

My WWII History Lesson: 75th Anniversary of Victory in Stalingrad and Why It Was So Important

THE MOTHERLAND CALLS FROM VOLGOGRAD

MOTHER RUSSIA, aka, The Motherland Calls (RussianРодина-мать зовёт!tr. Rodina-mat’ zavyot!). Mamayev Kurgan war memorial, Stalingrad (Volgograd).

**Attempts to re-write history and reverse Russian victory in WWII are intensifying. These re-writing attempts are coming from all kinds of countries, including Ukraine, Poland, Romania, the Baltics, US, Germany, etc. And even some of the young people in Russia are beginning to forget the truth. Humans are funny and their memory is short. This amnesia always results in a self-fulfilling prophecy otherwise known as ‘karma.’ This is why memory is so important. After all, ‘those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it.’

So we don’t forget, and can remind others — here’s a short, but important lesson from me:

75th Anniversary of the Victory in Stalingrad

Why was Stalingrad so important, why is it studied in all military colleges around the world and why is it arguably the most famous battle ever fought?

The city formerly known as Stalingrad is now called Volgograd (which means: the City on Volga River). A major commemorative parade took place today, Feb 2, 2018, in Volgograd (Stalingrad).

On June 22, 1941, at 4am, when people slept, Hitler’s Germany and their allies attacked the USSR simultaneously on all fronts. The Great Patriotic War began. Hitler’s troops moved relentlessly and to quickly through the territories of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.

They were stopped only near Moscow and Leningrad, but at a huge cost. The German advancement meanwhile continued elsewhere, as town after town and city after city fell, despite the troops’ and population’s heroic defense. In 1942 Hitler was advancing on most fronts and Germans were reporting that they could already see Volga ahead of them. If they crossed the major water artery of Russia, the Volga River, this would mean a nearly unencumbered access to the following major prize: The industrial Russian hub of the Urals. And from the Urals, they could advance to Siberia, with its oil and natural resource riches, and that would be the end of Russia and the USSR.

That’s why Stalingrad was the last and final stand. The phrase that made it into all history books was: “There is no land for us beyond Volga.” This is what officers told their troops. There is no land for us beyond this point. Germans cannot be allowed to cross Volga at any cost. It was a fight of the magnitude never before known by the world. It was the most devastating war humanity ever experienced, and the cost to both Russian/Soviet civilians and troops was obsene and staggering. The amount of self-sacrifice and heroism was out-of-this-world. There was no choice: if Germans crossed Volga, it would be the end. They had to be stopped.

The outcome of that battle and entire WWII, the Russian/Soviet victory in it saved the entire world — and that means you, You and YOU, by the way. All at the expense of MILLIONS of RUSSIAN and SOVIET LIVES!

While General Friedrich Paulus, the commander of the 6th German Army was preparing to toast the victory of Stalingrad, Russian generals were preparing their counter-attack plan. Rumor has it that Hitler was so confident in Paulus’ success that he promoted him to field marshal just before the day Paulus surrendered together with his army to the Russian Army.

More hilarious details from Wikipedia:

Paulus surrendered in Stalingrad on 31 January 1943, the same day on which he was informed of his promotion to field marshal by Adolf HitlerHitler expected Paulus to commit suicide, repeating to his staff that there was no precedent of a German field marshal ever being captured alive. While in Soviet captivity during the war, Paulus became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime and joined the Soviet-sponsored National Committee for a Free Germany. He moved to East Germany in 1953.

Might this be a lesson for new aggressors?

The unexpected by both Germany/Axis allies and US/UK Allies Soviet victory in the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-43 not only shocked the world, but it completely turned around the fates of WWII and Nazi Germany. The beginning of Hitler’s demise took place in Stalingrad. In the Great Stalingrad Cauldron, Russians surrounded and took prisoner over a hundred thousand of German troops.

But what very few people know is that the actual brilliant Soviet Stalingrad counter-attack plan was initially much grander and it included several broad fronts, down to Caucasus. If the whole plan succeeded, most German troops would have been surrounded and WWII could have ended a year or two earlier. The plan succeeded only partially, and after Stalingrad there was a number of other giant battles on the Soviet territory, plus hundreds and hundreds of smaller ones. In these battles the two titan armies clashed: one in order to conquer and enslave, and another to protect and liberate the Motherland.

The largest tank battle of WWII was the Battle of Kursk, July-August 1943, when Germans gathered all the resources they could in order to regain advantage. They failed miserably.

The Battle of Kursk, also known as the Arch of Kursk (Russian: Kurskaya Duga), had its own legendary ‘aha’ moment, when the well-oiled German war machine suddenly came to a screeching halt as thousands of state-of-the-art, awe-inspiring and menacing German tanks stopped, as if turned off by God’s invisible hand. For 20 minutes they helplessly watched as Russian tanks were quickly catching up to them in the giant battlefield, which would eventually become the Germans’ grave. This mysterious event took place in the stretch of the core central Russian steppes known as ‘the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly.’ The mystical mass sabotage of the German hardware during the Kursk Battle helped ensure another crucial victory for the USSR and another devastating defeat for Nazi Germany, from which it never recovered.

But the advancement of the German army was first stopped in Stalingrad. And with every next battle, inch by inch Russian / Soviet people liberated their land from the brown plague of the German fascism and their allies.

Stalingrad was rebuilt from the complete ruins after the war ended, and the Battle of Stalingrad memorial complex was built on Mamayev Kurgan, on the banks of Volga. It consists of a number of monuments and mass graves of those who perished defending Russia.

The main monument is the towering statue, MOTHER RUSSIA, or The Motherland Calls (RussianРодина-мать зовёт!tr. Rodina-mat’ zavyot!). She is the reminder of the truth that can never be forgotten. (See the image on top.)

Lada Ray #VictoryDay 2017 special. 1943 US film with exceedingly rare for the West truthful and positive portrayal of Russia. This film is now posted on Lada Ray Channel.

This film was made in 1943 on direct orders of Roosevelt, who was trying to convince USA elites to enter WWII in Europe against Fascist Germany and its allies, in response to repeated pleas by Stalin during 1941-43 era, when the help of allies was truly needed. US finally entered WWII in 1944, after Red Army liberated all or most of its territory, when the next objective became taking over Berlin and squashing fascism in its bunker, and when it became clear that the USSR could win the war all by itself.

Solo Warriors vs. Kiev Junta

This post is dedicated to those in Novorossia, Donbass, Malorossia and Ukraine who retained their dignity, reason and soul and who never surrendered. Not all hope is lost for the people of Ukraine while at least one person is left who dares to do and say this…

To the brave women of Donbass (2014-2016). This, very nice song was written by a man to celebrate the brave and beautiful women of Donbass who went into Opolchenie (self-defence) in order to protect their land from the invading Kiev junta ukro-nazis:

“Our girls are in the trenches, and though shedding tears by night, they don’t bustle around a warm kitchen, but bravely respond to invader’s attack. Not at a shopping mall or a salon, but clenching their gun, they fight against ukrops (LR: ukro-nazis), not sparing either bullets or grenades.

And only at night you see your home and dawn over a morning river. We’ll survive till the victory – there is simply no other way. No more shootings, no more war, children’s laughter flies around, and happiness abounds when the old snow melts in the spring. 

Our girls have become older and their temples are white at twenty of age, our girls have become wiser and they don’t resort to cocktails to drown their sorrows. They fight for our native Donbass steppes and ancestral home and that’s why fascist chains will be broken and victory will come.

And only at night you see home and dawn over a morning river. We’ll survive till the victory – there is simply no other road for us. No more shootings, no more war, children’s laughter flies around, and happiness abounds when the old snow melts in the spring.

OUR GIRLS (НАШИ ДЕВОЧКИ (ополченкам Донбасса посвящается) – Сергей Ялтан)

 

May 9, 2014, Zaporozhie. No parade, deserted central street. Sole vet on bike with banned WWII Soviet Victory Banner and a telling song about “our capital Moscow being behind us”! Real attitude of locals towards junta: notice a man running up to him to shake his hand and people on a sidewalk clapping:

This is the interview with this vet, Petr Nikitich Koloskov, dubbed after the event ‘a national hero’: he’d decided to come out when he heard that parade was banned and he promised to come out again in 2015.

Historic reference:

May 9 is celebrated everywhere in Russia and the Russian World as Victory Day. On that day (or rather night, still May 8 in Western Europe), Hitler’s army signed its capitulation in Berlin. The Great Patriotic War against Nazi aggression, which the Soviet Union won at the cost of 27 million lives and complete destruction of the country, ended that day in a ‘victory with tears in one’s eyes.’ It is traditionally celebrated by parades of army and vets, as well concerts. Striped gold and black Georgievskaya Bands (lentochka) are worn as a symbol of victory and heroism; replicas of the original Victory Banner installed by the Soviet Army over the fallen Reichstag are traditionally carried in parades. After the ukro-nazi junta headed by Poroshenko (Valtzman) and Yatsenyuk came to power in Ukraine, The Great Victory parades, concerts, Russian songs and films, and all Great Victory symbolism were banned. Ukro-nazi thugs attacked anyone who dared to come out with Georgievskaya Band and/or Victory Banner.

Kharkov, May 9 2015: Police halfheartedly try to convince Soviet Army vets to take off their Georgievskaya Bands, while the retired colonel, in full regalia, explains to police captain, whom he outranks, that he can’t take off the symbol of his father’s and grandfather’s victory. “I served in the Soviet Army and I swore allegiance to the great state of the Soviet Union. I respected and admired it and no one has the right to insult our memory.” Next to him, another vet tries to get into the War Memorial wearing a Georgivskaya Band with a Victory Banner pin, while being blocked from entry by police. Back to the colonel, who goes on to people’s clapping: “I spit on your Yatsenyuk and Valtzman (Poroshenko) laws, on all this junta that came to power after a coup and that made us, brother Slavs, kill each other in Donbass.”

 

Lada Ray note on Ukraine police today:

Since Kharkov is in its absolute majority pro-Russian and anti-junta, but afraid to protest after a brutal crack-down, police are afraid to be very forceful. In general, police in many Ukrainian cities and towns have a double position. On one hand they don’t want to antagonize the population and be branded ukro-nazis with subsequent payback, on another hand, they want to continue receiving salary. As a result, in most places their behavior is half-hearted and confused, or indifferent. They often turn a blind eye to what ukro-nazis are doing, including robberies, assaults and killings. But they make elderly vets take off their WWII memorabilia, because Kiev tells them so.

Generally, all normal, honest people left Ukraine army and police. There were several purges in the army, police and SBU to rid them of ‘pro-Russian’ element. Despite that, the allegiance to Russia turned out to be so ‘pervasive’ that, despite US financing to re-hire western Ukrainians and foreigners for most police and SBU posts and a wholesale effort to fire anyone whom a lie detector test would flag, to this day Kiev junta doesn’t trust their police, army and SBU.

Dmitry Masyuchenko, May 9 2015 – ‘Ukraine Has Talent.’ A very passionate Ukrainian rap (in Russian, lol).

“Look around and back, notice how it was before and how it is now. We forgot how to forgive, even our closest people. We don’t appreciate what our ancestors did, the money has more value to us than our souls. And our children will grow just like us.

The government, you live in mansions, while the elderly suffer without apartments, vets are forced to beg on streets, they don’t need much, just some food and medicine. They want to live, and you are finishing them off. You kill them off! Have you forgotten that these vets once saved our lives, so we could live? They survived the war and this means they’ll outlive you, too. Outlive!

Aren’t you ashamed? How long will you go on lying? Everything’s going down, except skyrocketing prices. How will they live? And you are fat pigs, riding around in limos to expensive restaurants and boutiques. If you are deputies, live for the country. The value of life is lost to you behind your money. You have everything and that’s why you don’t see your own people.

Some have picked up and left. The hardest thing is to stay and change what has been forever neglected. This is our motherland, we were born here and we should die here. These aren’t just words, they are my soul’s cry. I am tired of watching this broken country. It’s been like this for 20 years. This is our country and we won’t be evicted. Let’s appreciate it and remember our past. Remember the past! She’s our only, invincible and forgotten by us, but still ours – Rodina (Motherland).”

Lada Ray: This boy’s pretty brave, too. I notice he picks his words very carefully, and kinda waltzes around the issues. In some cases one could interpret what he says in an ambiguous way, which could create different associations in different people. This is done on purpose, to pass censorship and so not to be attacked by ukro-nazis. But all in all, anyone who has half a brain can put the 2 and 2 together in his logical chain: we forgot how to forgive our closest people and live by truth – remember the country’s real past –  forgotten vets – this junta government is corrupt – money took over our souls –  Ukraine is broken and needs to be fixed – we have one Motherland, even if we’ve forgotten that. The hint is clear for those who care to see: Russian word Rodina, sounding the same in Ukrainian, is associated with Big Russia or the Russian World.

Also the theme of holding the fort and not leaving, despite the hardship, is a strong one here. I have to say that I’ve been thinking a lot about that lately. Millions fled Ukraine in the past 25, and especially in the past 2.5 years. They won’t admit the real population loss, but according to Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, Head of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, the population of Ukraine in 1990 was 54 million and now it’s down to around 35 million (I think it may be even less). In other words, the country lost 20 million people without a major war, simply as a result of its ‘independence’ from Russia and common sense.

Ukraine’s loss of the population is staggering, and the loss of talent is devastating. It’s no secret that the ones who have the most money, most talent and best skills are leaving. Also leaving are those who are the quickest and most resourceful. In other words, the last remaining life force is being drained. Without all that, the country has no future.

Natalia Mikhailovna Vitrenko

Incidentally, the brave Dr. Natalia Vitrenko is one of those who refused to leave Kiev, despite personal threats. Her party has been banned and is forced to operate underground. She and her party are considered probably the one last remaining honest and truthful political force in Ukraine. Vitrenko has been banned from Ukraine TV, but she continues trying to educate people and logically, with real facts in hand, explain Ukraine’s dire situation via VitrenkoNatalia YT channel.

We discussed much of this before in my articles and Earth Shift Report 2, 3 and 6. But it’s good to have this sought after perspective by Vitrenko, who’s great at historic details and who tells the truth like it is! Natalia Vitrenko: Nazi Ukraine as German-United States Project with English subs, Mar 7, 2016:

 

 

In the next post we’ll go beyond the physical and mundane and I’ll give you my energy and consciousness analysis:

2. Will Russia help Ukraine, like it did so many times before;

3. Energy pulse: how do Ukraine, USA, Russia and China fare energetically (historic and contemporary Quantum Calibration Comparative Analysis)

Hoaxes, Hoaxes: Sevastopol Officer in Syria and BBC Moon Landing Hoax Doc. Plus, Must Watch Russian Films

Several interesting updates from a friend of FuturisTrendcast, Nemo, which deserve our attention:

Nemo1024

The latest in the parade of anti-Russian Syria-centered hoaxes: Someone broke into a social-network account of a wife of a naval officer serving in Sevastopol. The site is a pre-natal one, where the woman was sharing the experience with her ongoing pregnancy. She never posted anything related to her husband’s work there. And then came a post, telling that her husband is off to danger to remote Syria. This post was picked-up, making headlines, while her account got deleted. I watched the interview with the officer in question, who is (big surprise) still in Sevastopol, and I admire his restraint in commenting the outrageous incident that targeted his family.

Also, as Patricia noted in a comment above, even IF this was not a hoax, what were we meant to think reading this news? That “bad Russia” sends its troops to fight against “good ISIS”, which destroys Syria?

More: Evil Empire Strikes Again: US Pressures Greece to block Russian Syria-bound Aid Planes. Also more good info in the comment section.

Though I am unsure if it can be ascribed to BBC, the following documentary covers all the aspects of the Moon landing hoax and brings a lot of interesting historical footage.

Lada’s two cents:

Yes, I have seen this documentary a while back. It is from BBC.

Much more interesting stuff in: 500th Soyuz Launch: Russia, USA, China, Fake Moon Landing, Space Travel and Aquarian Age. Don’t miss the comments, where I answer a lot of cutting edge questions.

Must see Russian movies

Lada, I discovered a wonderful trilogy of films with Georgij Zhzhenov (Георгий Жжёнов). The films are Путь в «Сатурн» (Way into “Saturn”), Конец «Сатурна» (The End of “Saturn”), and Бой после победы (The Battle after the Victory). They are from 1968 and 1972.

The first two films are about integration of a Soviet intelligence officer into German sub-division of Abwehr, “Saturn”, which was preparing saboteurs that were sent out against Soviet union during WWII. But it is the third film that completely fascinated me. WWII ends and the German officers are taken prisoner in the American zone, the Soviet intelligence officer is among them. He is about to disclose himself and return home, but suddenly the German officers are pulled from the POW camp and are formed into a division working on creation of saboteurs on the Soviet-controlled territory, as well as Baltics and Ukraine, by the American friends. And the Soviet officers continues to be undercover collecting information and trying to prevent a large sabotage operation on the day when Berlin is divided. The film is much more nuanced than what I describe here, with both Germans and Americans having fleshed-out human characters.

There is one scene that caught my attention, when one of the Soviet generals in the centre says that, god knows, they did everything in their power to keep Berlin united. That’s in the film from 1972.

Lada, this film is something worth writing an extended article about, as it uncannily seems to echo the events of this year – rather the current result of something that began in 1945.

I found only short fragments of the third film on YouTube, while the first two can be found in full. None of them are, alas, translated.

The fragment below shows the opening and the first minutes of the film, when the retreating German convoy with documents carrying “Saturn’s” archives, learns about Germany’s capitulation.

Video: Бой после победы.trailer

Also, found this movie:

“We Are From the Future” (Мы из будущего) in two parts on Rutube:

Lada’s two cents:

Thanks for all the great comments, Nemo. The Saturn trilogy sounds very promising.

I had posted WE ARE FROM THE FUTURE on the Rus Films page once, as one of the recommended movies. But it got deleted from YT, so I had to remove the link. Thanks for these new links. Thank goodness for Rutube. 😉

Incidentally, part 2 of this film is – surprise!! – about Banderovtsi ukro-nazis and the stark prediction that there is a danger of them taking over Ukraine. This is the theme as far as I know, since I didn’t see part 2. But I can attest that part 1 is great. At the time part 2 came out in late 2000s, it drew a lot of criticism. The author was blamed for being anti-Ukrainian and accused of prejudice against Ukraine.

Fast-forward just a few short years to 2014 – and what do we have? The movie’s prediction comes true completely; Bandera ukro-nazis take over Ukraine, the whole nine yards. The mentality turnaround of Russia’s young generation, as well as the rise of patriotism and remembrance of the ancestral roots is also a big theme in the film. Don’t know about part 3 (didn’t know it existed), but parts 1 and 2 are intensely prophetic.

My synopsis from the FT’s Russian Films page:

Time Travel/Adventure: We Are From the Future

Rating 4.5 stars. Newer Russian movie, 2008. A fantastic story of time travel by 4 young men, who don’t care about their country’s past and its heroes, and who make money by digging up and selling to foreigners its memory: they find WWII era battlefields and scavenge any trophies they can find.

(The image of the young not caring about their country’s past is deeply symbolic. We can see this condition manifesting in its worst form today in Ukraine.)

During one such treasure hunt, the four young men dig out a war trench, but instead of returning home with valuables, they find themselves in the middle of a real WWII battle, where they first become German prisoners, and later Russian prisoners. Russians eventually believe that they aren’t the enemy, but they have to learn the hard way what their ancestors had to go through during the war.

In the end, they make it back into their time, having learned their lessons – as very different men.

Lots more highly recommended Rus movies on Russian Films page

I explain more about the Moon landing hoax, the logic behind it, how it was done and why it was discontinued; the truth about Appollo 13, and what Russia was doing at the time, in COMMENTS.

Destiny of Russia and Spectacular Show on Red Square

Don’t miss! May 9th, 2015, Moscow. Tastefully masterminded and beautifully performed Great War re-enactment and spectacular concert on Red Square. Includes some of the best and most famous Russian songs and dance – must see! Праздничный концерт «Дороги Великой Победы» на Красной Площади.

Please note, what is customarily translated to English as the “Great Patriotic War” is, like so many others, a bad translation. The right translation is: The Great War for Fatherland (Russian transliteration: Velikaya Otechestvennaya Voina). I simply call it “The Great War,” which gives it the right meaning, too – to match with the “Great Victory.”

Geopolitical message to the world

Throughout the entire day of May 9, 2015 Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping were seen together, talking all the time, while watching the parade and concert – you will see them again in this video of the Red Square concert. This is a clear geopolitical message to the world! Some analysts have said that a new anti-fascist coalition was formed on Red Square on May 9th. Those leaders who came to Moscow celebrations and brought their troops with them are in it. Those who didn’t come… you do the math. This may be correct on some level.

But it goes beyond that – far beyond. The fact that leaders of China, India and a number of other EURASIAN countries arrived, while only Serb and Cyprus presidents were present from Europe, sends another signal. As is well-know, Serbia is a very close-knit part of the Russian world, considering Russia their mother-culture, while Cyprus is the most pro-Russian part of the EU. While the island is primarily ethnically Greek, geographically it’s located next to Turkey, thus being a part of the Middle East, or more broadly – Eurasia. (Added: I am also told that Macedonian president was there as well – same story as Serbia. Please see much more in Comments).

Like I said back in the beginning of 2014: Russia is forced to rebalance to the East. Actually, destiny and the West are pushing Russia towards such rebalancing, whether Russia wants it or not.

Please recall my PREDICTIONS and multiple articles/videos: Russia is the Great Balancer of our planet. The previous great rebalancing started 1000 years ago, a process that was completed by Russia about 300 years ago, during the reign of Peter the Great. This rebalancing gave the West (first Western Europe, and later North America, as well) a huge advantage over the rest of the planet. Such rebalancing happens roughly every 1000 years, although there are also different timelines involved as well. Russia is now starting the process of rebalancing back to the East and Global South.

“The Roads of Great Victory” Re-enactment of the Great War and spectacular concert. Don’t miss it!

Victory Day fireworks with gorgeous views of the Kremlin and Moscow:

And don’t miss the Victory Day parades marathon, including the Immortal Regiment March. The Red Square parade was spectacular. But the Immortal Regiment March stole the show. 12 million people in Russia, post Soviet republics, and beyond took part in the Immortal Regiment March. 500,000 took part in Moscow alone. The entire initiative was grass-roots. I am told that many people from the UK, US, France and elsewhere in Europe came to the march as well, carrying portraits of their relatives who perished in WWII. I literally have never seen anything like this! And I’d been to 30 countries and seen lots of mass marches and parades growing up in the USSR. Victory Day Parades Marathon and The Immortal Regiment March.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon showed up for the May 9th celebration in Moscow. He said that when he saw that sea of people approaching Red Square, he first thought it was anti-Putin protest. But it turned out it was actually pro-Putin and pro-government celebration. You deserve all the love of your people, mr. President, concluded Ban Ki-moon. Whether it was meant as a pretty awkward joke, or he really is that misinformed – you decide.

Devastating Tragedy of WWII: Blockade of Leningrad and How Vladimir Putin’s Family Survived It

animation den pobedy 2

Tomorrow is May 9th. HAPPY VICTORY DAY!

This post is part of the 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON

They say there was no family in the 250 million Soviet Union that didn’t experience a loss in the Great Patriotic War, usually referred to in the West as World War II. This is why the Great Victory celebrated on May 9th is called ‘a holiday with tears in our eyes.’

Leningrad, presently St. Petersburg, a city of unsurpassed beauty and treasures on the Neva River, was one of the hardest hit during that brutal war. It is one of the original four Hero Cities for the heroism and spirit displayed by its troops and citizens (later, more cities were given the Hero City title). The other three were Stalingrad, Moscow and Odessa. Each had a unique and devastating story to tell.

Among them, Leningrad stood out by the amount of tragedy, sacrifice and starvation inflicted on simple citizens through the inhumane blockade, which left the multi-million city without food for almost 900 days.

Odessa had a different story to tell. Due to the city’s location, its siege, perpetrated by Germany and Romania together, was punctuated with severe water shortage. Thirst, not hunger, was what killed people in southern steppes. During sieges of Stalingrad and Moscow the killers were bombs and bullets. But undeniably, the most devastating and tragic story of the entire WWII was the Siege and Blockade of Leningrad (Russian: блокада Ленинграда).

It is something Russians remember very well… even those of us who were born decades after, even those who had never been to Leningrad. It is imprinted in our collective psyche.

It is also something that unfortunately those who live in the US, Canada, EU, Poland or Germany probably could never understand. Perhaps that’s why they have such immature and cavalier attitude towards WWII, Russia’s role and sacrifice in it. Or perhaps they are simply afraid of the Russian spirit and ability to withstand such hardship for the idea. Perhaps, this is why they need to do anything they possibly can to diminish and malign the country that saved the world from fascism.

Below is an excerpt from Wikipedia. I am usually very careful about quoting Wikipedia as much of its info is biased and inaccurate, to put it mildly. But this piece seems one of the few telling the truth. Link.

Wikipedia quote:

“The Siege of Leningrad, also known as the Leningrad Blockade (Russian: блокада Ленинградаtransliteration: blokada Leningrada) was a prolonged military operation undertaken by the German Army Group North against Leningrad—historically and currently known as Saint Petersburg—in the Eastern Front theatre ofWorld War II. The siege started on 8 September 1941, when the last road to the city was severed. Although the Soviets managed to open a narrow land corridor to the city on 18 January 1943, the siege was finally lifted on 27 January 1944, 872 days after it began. It was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history and overwhelmingly the most costly in terms of casualties.

The capture of Leningrad was one of three strategic goals in the German Operation Barbarossa and the main target of Army Group North. The strategy was motivated by Leningrad‘s political status as the former capital of Russia and the symbolic capital of the Russian Revolution, its military importance as a main base of the Soviet Baltic Fleet and its industrial strength, housing numerous arms factories.[12] By 1939 the city was responsible for 11% of all Soviet industrial output.[13] It has been reported that Adolf Hitler was so confident of capturing Leningrad that he had the invitations to the victory celebrations to be held in the city’s Hotel Astoria already printed.[14] Yet, although various theories have been forwarded about Nazi Germany‘s ultimate plans for Leningrad, including renaming the city Adolfsburg (as claimed by Soviet journalist Lev Bezymenski) [15] and making it the capital of the new Ingermanland province of the Reich in Generalplan Ost, it is clear that Hitler’s intention was to utterly destroy the city and its population. According to a directive sent to Army Group North on 29 September, “After the defeat of Soviet Russia there can be no interest in the continued existence of this large urban center. […] Following the city’s encirclement, requests for surrender negotiations shall be denied, since the problem of relocating and feeding the population cannot and should not be solved by us. In this war for our very existence, we can have no interest in maintaining even a part of this very large urban population.”[16] Hitler’s ultimate plan was to raze Leningrad to the ground and give areas north of the River Neva to the Finns.”

Piskariovskoye Cemetery

I visited Leningrad – St. Petersburg several times in my life. It truly is the most beautiful and impressive historic city in the world. I took the time to go to the Piskariovskoye Memorial Cemetery where the victims of the 872-day blockade found their final resting place. It’s a huge field filled with alleys, flowers, and rows and rows of granite stones listing the names of those buried underneath – 500,000 in total. The entire toll of the blockade was over 640,000.

The Piskariovskoye Cemetery museum has photographs, documents and diaries of those who perished. There was a girl’s diary that struck me most. The little girl named Tanya documented every day things like: “Auntie died today, my little brother died, mommy died.” Then her hand was getting less steady as more people around her passed. The final entry was, “Tanya all alone.” The girl Tanya was buried with others on that cemetery.

Immortal stories of the people’s spirit during the Leningrad Blockade

Leningrad is home to some of the most beautiful museums and architecture in the world, filled with treasured art, science and literature. When Germans advanced, workers of the museums and libraries tried to save their treasures, aided by locals and soldiers. A lot of priceless art from Leningrad museums was evacuated, some under severe shelling and German aviation bombings.

Leningrad is full of gorgeous bridges and statues. To attempt to save them from bombings, the starving, exhausted citizens would wrap the statues in anything protective they could find, often building protective shields around them. That way they saved for posterity many, many priceless works of art.

The great Russian composer Dmitry Shostakovich survived the Leningrad Blockade and wrote some of his most striking music during that time. He refused to leave his city; during the blockade, Shostakovich along with other artists, would play for the starving people and troops. These radio concerts would be broadcast via loudspeakers placed all over the city, bringing hope and lifting the morale.

Shostakovich – Symphony No 7: The LENINGRAD SYMPHONY, 1941 (Gergiev). The symphony became a symbol of anti-fascist resistance.

Amber Room

One of the most famous Leningrad treasures was the Amber Room, once given to empress Katerina Velikaya (Catherine the Great) by Prussian king – a feat which, according to historic accounts, bankrupted him. The Amber Room was so unique and beautiful that it was called the Eighth Wonder of the World. The value of the Amber Room? Simply priceless. The gorgeous, but fragile, amber panels were mounted onto a room at the Catherine Palace in the town of Pushkino, on the outskirts of St. Petersburg. Additional panels and paintings were created by Russian artisans in order to complete the room. The empress could sit in it for hours, forgetting about time and space. Anyone who saw the Amber Room is purported to have been awed by its beauty and otherworldly energy.

During the 1941 German advancement, the workers of the Catherine Palace museum managed to wrap up and evacuate practically all of the treasures. But they were afraid to move the fragile Amber Room, fearing it could get damaged if they tried to dismantle the panels. Instead, the decision was made to camouflage it by painting something on top of the panels and building fake walls around it. They hoped Germans would overlook the Amber Room.

When Pushkino was taken their hopes evaporated. Germans arrived with blueprints and drawings. They brought specialists with them, ready to dismantle the treasure. They also arrived with transportation and packaging. They knew exactly where to find the Amber Room; in fact, taking the Amber Room was one of their major goals in Leningrad, orders coming directly from Hitler.

Some of you may know the story: the Amber Room was taken to Königsberg (now Kaliningrad) and stayed there until Soviet troops approached the city. Then it was loaded onto a ship, which may, or may not have, drowned. The Amber Room vanished to never be seen again. Its mystery remains unsolved.

Several years ago the Russian artists and scientists completed the painstaking duplication of the Amber Room, after many years of research and work. The Amber Room 2.0 is now open to the public.

How Vladimir Putin’s Family Survived the Siege and Blockade of Leningrad

Excerpts from Nemo’s own translation of the original story by 

the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, published in Russian Pioneer 4/30/2015

Read the entire post: “Life is such a simple, yet cruel thing”

“Father worked at a military enterprise when the war started, being exempt from conscription. But he wrote an application to join the party, and then another application – that he wants to go to the front. He was dispatched to the subversive detachment of the NKVD. It was a small detachment. He said that there were 28 people in it, and they were deployed behind the enemy lines to carry out acts of sabotage, undermine bridges, railway tracks… But they were almost immediately ambushed. Someone betrayed them. They came to a village, and then went out, and when after a while they returned, the Nazis were already waiting for them there. They were chased through the woods, and father survived because he climbed into a swamp, and spent a few hours in that swamp, breathing through a reed. While sitting in the swamp and breathing through the reed, he heard how the German soldiers were passing nearby, just a few steps away from him, how the dogs were yapping…

It was the beginning of autumn, in other words – already cold… I also remember how he told me that the leader of their group was a German. A Soviet citizen, but a German.

And here’s what’s curious: a couple of years ago, the archives of the Defence Ministry handed me the case of this group. There is a copy of the case in my home, in Novo-Ogaryovo. A list of the group, names, patronymics and brief descriptions. Yes, 28 people. And at the head – a German. Everything as it was told by my father.

Of the 28 people, only 4 crossed the front line back to ours. 24 were killed.

They were re-assigned to the active army, and sent on to Nevsky Pyatachok. It was probably the hottest place during the whole of the Leningrad Blockade. Our troops held a small bridgehead. Four kilometres in width and some two kilometres in depth. It was supposed to be a springboard for the future breaking of the blockade. But it never got used for this purpose. They broke through the blockade elsewhere. Still the spot (Nevsky Pyatachok) was held, held for a long time, there was heavy fighting there. Very heavy. There are commanding heights above and all around it, it’s shot at throughout. The Germans were, of course, also aware that it’s there that a breakthrough may be attempted, and tried to simply erase the Nevsky Pyatachok  off the face of the earth. There is data about how much metal there is in each square meter of the land. There’s still metal all over the place there.

Father explained how he was wounded there. The wound was heavy. All his life he lived with shrapnel in his leg: not all fragments could be taken out. The leg ached. Foot didn’t bend since then. The medics preferred not to touch the small fragments so as not to shatter the bone. And, thank God, the leg was saved. They could, after all, amputate it. He got a good doctor. He had the second group disablement. As a disabled veteran, he was eventually given an apartment. It was our first separate apartment. A small two-room apartment. (Translators remark: Before that the Putins lived in a communal apartment, where several families share the facilities, corridor and kitchen, and sleep in separate rooms.) However, before that we lived in the centre and now we had to move. True, not quite to the outskirts, but to a new-built area. And it happened, of course, not immediately after the war, but when I already worked in the KGB. I was not given an apartment then, but my father finally got his. It was a great happiness. And here’s how he was wounded. He, together with a comrade, did a little sortie into the rear of the Germans, crawling, crawling… And then it becomes both funny and sad at the same time: they got to a German bunker, and, father said, out of it comes a man, a huge guy, and looks at them… and they couldn’t get up while they were staring into the barrel of a gun. “The man – he says – looked at us very carefully, then he took out a grenade, then another, and threw those grenades at us. Well… ” Life is such a simple, yet cruel thing.

By chance, father’s neighbour from Peterhof was nearby. And that neighbour pulled him over without hesitation and managed to drag him to the hospital. The neighbour waited for him at the hospital, made sure that he was operated, and said, “All right, now you’re going to live, and I am off to die.”

My mother told me how she visited father at the hospital. They had a small child, a three-year-old. At that time there was blockade, hunger… My father would give her his hospital ration, secretly from doctors and nurses. She hid it, took it home and fed the child. When father began to faint from hunger in the hospital, doctors and nurses understood what was happening and didn’t allow her to visit any more.

And then the child was taken away from her. It was done, as she later explained, in a compulsory fashion in order to save small children from starvation. They were collected to the orphanages for further evacuation. Parents were not asked.

He fell ill there – my mother said that it was with diphtheria – and didn’t survive. They were not even told where he was buried. They have never learnt where. And then, last year, completely unfamiliar to me people worked on their own initiative through the archives and found documents about my brother. And that’s really my brother. Because I knew that they lived then, after fleeing from Peterhof from the advancing German troops, at their friends’ place – and I even knew the address. They lived, as we call it, on the Water Channel (Vodnyj Kanal). It would be better to call it a “Bypass channel” (Obvodnyj Kanal), but in Leningrad it’s called “Water Channel”. I know for sure that they had lived there. And not only the address, where he was taken from, coincided. Name, surname, patronymic, date of birth coincided as well. It was, of course, my brother. And there was stated the place of burial: Piskaryovskoye Cemetery. And even the specific area was given.

Parents were told nothing of this. Well, apparently, other things had higher priority back then.

So, everything that my parents told about the war was true. Not a single word was invented; not a single day was moved. About my brother, about the neighbour, about the German, commander of the group. Everything matches. And all this got later confirmed in an incredible way.

After her child was taken away, mother was left alone. When father was allowed to walk, he stood up on crutches and went home. And when he came to the house, he saw that the medics were carrying corpses out of the entrance. And he saw my mother. He came up, and it seemed to him that she was breathing. He told the medics: “She’s still alive!” – “She’ll pass away along the way – said the nurse. – She won’t survive.” He told that he pounced on them with crutches and forced them to lift her back into the apartment. They told him: “Well, we’ll do as you say, but know that we will not come here for another two or three or four weeks. You’ll have to sort it out yourself then.”

He nursed her back to life. She survived and lived until 1999. He died in late 1998.

After the lifting of the blockade, they moved to the homeland of their parents, in the Tver oblast, and lived there until the end of the war. Father’s family was quite large. He had, after all, six brothers, and five of them were killed in the war. This is a disaster for the family. And my mother’s relatives also died. I was a late child; she gave birth to me when she was 41.

There was not a family where someone didn’t die. So much grief, misfortune and tragedy… But they had no hatred for the enemy, that’s what’s amazing. To be honest, I still cannot fully understand this. My mother was a very gentle, kind person… She said, “Well, what kind of hatred can one have toward these soldiers? They are simple people and also died in the war.” It’s amazing. We were brought up on Soviet books, movies… and hatred. But she somehow did not have it in her. And I remember very well her words: “Well, what can you have against them? They are also hard workers, just like us. They were simply force-driven to the front.”

I never forgot those words.”

Lada’s 2 cents:

It’s a tragic and beautiful story. There is only one thing on which I would disagree with President Putin. Quote: “We were brought up on Soviet books, movies… and hatred. But she somehow did not have it in her.”

Yes, we were brought up on Soviet books and movies, but not on hatred. My family didn’t have any hatred towards Germans either, although they lost a lot – see post. Neither do I.  In fact, I personally love German culture and as a student I had two close German friends. It was a common thing. There was no hatred then, and there isn’t any now.

But there is memory – memory which must be kept at all cost. When those old Soviet movies were made, they were created by those who either experienced war themselves or those who remembered it from direct participants. There are fewer and fewer such people left today. We must do everything to preserve the real truth about those events in order to avoid this kind of madness in the future. This is why attempts by some to re-write history cannot be tolerated.

LadaRayLive 11. Germans Are Coming to Crimea (in German w. English/Russian subs) – my authored English translation.

Some in Germany are awake…and singing. Two spunky German retirees didn’t believe Western MSM and decided to see for themselves what’s really going on in Crimea. ‘Around Crimea in 20 days’ cycling tour and a cool song that went viral, were born. The tour (May 9 – 29, 2015) is planned to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory in WWII over fascism, which will be celebrated on May 9 everywhere in Russia and many other countries. It will be celebrated with a great parade in Sevastopol, where our German friends will begin their tour. Want to join? You are invited – more in the video.

Striking WWII Footage and Inspiring Song of the Great Victory

This post is part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON

(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)

Don’t miss this video!

This is a very nice song about the Great Patriotic War (WWII) and the Great Victory. The real documentary footage from 1941-45 is a revelation, including battles, the historic Victory Banner over Berlin’s Reichstag, but especially, the striking footage of how those who were lucky to survive were greeted back home.

“For all those who are alive, and who are already gone – and for those who are still to be born…”
