Victory Day parade on Moscow’s Red Square (short version, Putin’s speech – ENG)

English subs & English commentary!

Victory Day parade on the Red Square, marking the 74th anniversary of the end of the World War II. First time ever, with ladies participating as three separate regiments, plus for the first time ever the RosGvardia, Police and FSB regiments marching, as well.

Putin’s speech: 13:00. Putin spoke – among other things – on how some shamelessly lie and attempt to re-write history (Reference to the many lies perpetuated by Kiev junta, ex-Soviet republics and some in the West)

**Example of how lies are perpetuated is a comment posted by someone to recent post “So many? Really?” Germans do not know how many Russians were killed by their ancestors – and see our rebuttals and clarifications. I had to delete a number of even more disgusting neo-nazi trolls’ comments. The re-writing of history is becoming lately more and more disturbing!

Comrades Roosevelt and Gregory Peck: When Hollywood Sent Its Scripts For Stalin’s Approval

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

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

We are approaching the 70th Anniversary of the Great Victory over German Nazism and associated invaders (also known in the Russian world as the Great Victory in the Great Patriotic War), which will be celebrated in grand style on Moscow’s Red Square on May 9th, 2015. I thought it would be a terrific idea to do a few posts commemorating this date; in the future, I may do a separate piece presenting some of the most famous and amazing Russian songs and films. These reminders are especially important, considering how many out there are trying yet again to re-write history, something to which I don’t take kindly. I especially don’t appreciate the ungratefulness and arrogance of all those countries whom Russians and other peoples of the Soviet Union liberated in 1944-45 at the cost of 27 million lives, endless suffering, and destroyed country.

Sabotage by the leaders of US, UK, EU and associated countries of the celebrations in Moscow on May 9th; all manner of provocative statements by Poland, Ukraine and Baltics, together with their active re-animation of fascism – are beyond bad tone and beyond shameful.

And here is something else that should have been remembered, but was conveniently forgotten.

I noticed that some people in the West have a knee jerk reaction every time I mention anything to do with the USSR. What doesn’t occur to these people is that they have simply been pre-programmed by their propaganda machine to perceive anything to do with USSR or Russia as evil. The piece below will demonstrate how it was, and continues being, done.

Humans usually call those who submit too easily to someone’s will ‘lapdogs’ and ‘sheeple.’ Please, don’t insult the poor animals! Animals live in love and trust. Humans, on the other hand, submit out of apathy, hatred, fear, greed or other ulterior motive.

In addition, as you’ll see below, humans seem to have a goldfish memory. Let’s not insult the goldfish either – it should really be labeled ‘human memory’ since this is the only species that tends to conveniently forget. It is only humans who remember selectively when it suits them, developing sudden amnesia when it doesn’t.

Today’s feature:

Comrades Roosevelt and Gregory Peck: 

When Hollywood Sent Its Scripts For Stalin’s Approval 

Here is a remarkable list of films (in Russian and English) released by Hollywood during the period between 1942 and 1945:

“Дни Славы” – Days of Glory, 1944

“Миссия в Москву” – Mission To Moscow

“Северная Звезда” – The North Star (также известен под названием «Бронированная атака» aka, Armored Attack)

“Песня о России” – Song Of Russia, 1944

The story of these films is truly incredible and hard to imagine in view of today’s escalation of anti-Russian rhetoric and saber-rattling. After maligning the young Soviet Union for years since 1917, in 1941-42 Hollywood suddenly was charged with creating a positive PR campaign, in which Russia would be portrayed as a “nice country, with people just like Americans, who want to live in peace and who value their culture, music and art; who work hard and who also fight hard to defend their country.” All this was supposed to help “the war effort,” as expressed by the US President Franklin Roosevelt.

For this piece, I chose to talk about Days of Glory and Song of Russia.

Days of Glory was the debut of the Hollywood screen legend Gregory Peck (star of Roman Holiday, Cape Fear, Moby Dick; Best Actor Oscar for: To Kill the Mockingbird). In the movie, Comrade Peck plays the commander of the Soviet partisans (guerilla resistance) fighting against the Nazis. The video below presents several scenes from that film, along with the plot. The movie is pretty weak and full of clichés: partisans in the middle of a brutal war eat borscht from fine china and sit at a round dining table plucked from someone’s living room and placed in their spacious underground bunker; the man reprimanded for drinking responds with dismay that he is a stinking, dirty pig; the little girl addresses the ballerina, “You can’t cook, and you are a woman?” etc. The love story between Peck and the hungry ballerina, whose name is Nina and who just appears out of nowhere, is a little unrealistic as well.

But let’s just say… it’s the thought that counts. Despite all the weak links, the film conveys some very concrete ideas, such as: the Russian/Soviet partisans are good, humane people; they are the friends of the American people, who fight the fascists just like Americans do.

In the video below you can glean the movie scenes from Days of Glory in English between 1:10 – 6:33.

Song of Russia, a musical. In the video below, the movie scenes in English can be gleaned starting at 6:35.

Plot: a famous orchestra director John Meredith arrives to Moscow on a tour. He meets Russian girl, Nadya, and falls in love. When John takes his new Russian friend to a restaurant, he is in a state of cognitive dissonance (7:54). Strange, he says, everyone’s having such a good time. Is that wrong? asks she. No, except I thought Russians were sad, melancholy people sitting around, brooding about their souls. When conflicted Nadya flees from John to her native village, Tchaikovskoye, John follows her there. He again meets a lot of nice, joyful people who love to sing and dance. Nadya’s father talks tenderly to his tractor that leaks oil, “don’t cry ‘golubchik’ (darling), I’ll be back soon.”

At 9:25 – happy kolkhoz workers are singing, returning back from the fields. Oh, my! Watching this, I might mistake it for a Soviet movie circa 1933, glorifying Grandpa Stalin and the USSR! Just imagine this kind of Soviet ‘propaganda’ coming out of MGM!

In actuality, the song is pretty realistic, and Russians do like to sing and dance, including when working in the fields.

The main toast at John and Nadya’s Russian village wedding: “For the happiness of your great country, and for the happiness of our great country” – 11:10. In other words, friendship and global brotherhood, just like the USSR suggested to begin with!

See how easy it is to switch on and off a specific propaganda! Let’s follow this logical chain to its inevitable conclusion. In other words, if US/UK/EU propaganda didn’t work overtime to create and reinforce the image of Russia as a villain and enemy, today we all would have lived in peace and friendship!

But happiness doesn’t last – 11:22. Germany attacks Russia on June 22, 1941 and John’s manager tells him he should stop his tour and leave to the US. “Down at the consulate they say Germans will win this war in 6 weeks.” To which Nadya replies, “No, they will not win!”

The movie contains a totally incredible scene: Stalin’s real speech to the Soviet people (11:57). This famous speech began: “Comrades, Citizens, Brothers and Sisters, Soldiers and Sailors, I am addressing all of you, my friends. In this brutal war against the hateful forces of fascism we will have allies in the face of the peoples of Europe and USA.” For some strange reason, in the American translation Hollywood took out the words “brothers and sisters.”

Stalin is depicted here not as a brutal dictator, but as a world leader who manages to pull together allies and rise the morale not only in his country, but worldwide. It was noted by those who curated the film that Stalin’s calm and heartfelt speech was in stark contrast to Hitler’s hysterical screams, which made Americans feel uneasy. The conclusion was made that Americans would like Stalin’s manner. This is how Hollywood and US government were selling Stalin to the American people as a credible ally!!

When Nazis take over Tchaikovskoye, Nadya’s father and nephew are killed. John wants to join the partisans, but they charge him with going back to America together with Nadya in order to explain to the American people how hard the people of Russia have to fight. Nadya must tell Americans how her relatives and friends have died and that millions in Russia now fight for their land against fascism – 13:53. John and Nadya go back to the US, where they tell their story. Unbelievably, the entire movie is a 100% positive and sweet portrayal of Russia/USSR, perhaps a tad too sweet.

But what is especially remarkable in this whole story is what went on behind the scenes. The documents related to the creation of this and other such movies were declassified only recently.

American President Roosevelt named Lowell Mellet (15:09), a prominent journalist, to head the Office of War Information. He shaped the government PR and Hollywood propaganda during the war. Starting at 15:11, the video presents various correspondence between the Russian ambassador to the US Maxim Litvinov and the US side. It was understood that when Litvinov was asked to provide advice and vet the movie script, taking into account the severity of the war situation and the importance of the positive PR, he consulted the Kremlin and personally Stalin.

At 16:23: left to right – Soviet FM Molotov, Stalin (center), Litvinov (right).

The correspondence addresses the credibility of various scenes in the movie, including Russian names, places, what Russian trains look like, how the children are evacuated when Nazis come, how people should react to the air-raid sirens, etc. They did stop short of discussing the skirt length.

This fascinating text is in English and you can just read it in the video below. The Russian embassy replies start at 16:40.

18:10. Directions for the MGM script “Russia,” aka, “Song of Russia,” looked like this:

In the movie, we need to reiterate as often as possible that it was the Soviet Army who first destroyed the 10-year myth of the invincibility of the German Nazi army. The background should include the rich wheat fields of Ukraine, the modern city of Moscow, the DneproGes dam (LR: remember I mentioned DneproGes in Crazy Asylum Overload: Ukraine Bans Communism – Goodbye Chinese Investments as the impressive symbol of the Soviet communist industrialization!), a collective farm, a factory, Moscow Metro. All this should dispel the Americans’ impression of Russia as composed solely of bleak fields and backward villages, convincing them that Russians are solid and trustworthy allies!

There is more in the video. Check it out:

Let’s get this straight:

American and British propaganda worked hard to create a threatening and negative image of Russia in the form of the young USSR, after they first financed Lenin and the Bolshevik revolution. Then, when emergency knocked on the door in the form of the advancing Hitler armies (the monster who was also their handiwork), they began working equally hard to dispel what they had created! As soon as the war was over, MSM and Hollywood were back on track re-creating the image of Russia as USA’s worst enemy, organizing the Iron Curtain and Cold War in the process.

Next, in 1991-1998, when Yeltsin and Co. were conducting the wholesale sell-out of the country to the West, US media again worked hard to dispel the image of Russia as an enemy they carefully maintained in the previous 40 years. In the ’90s, I lived in the US and I remember the sudden and shocking turn to the positive propaganda. Yeltsin’s Russia was praised. Why not! It was, after all, the regime that surrendered to the West all the prized properties and achievements generations of Russians had worked hard to create. Meanwhile, the same propaganda machine conducted a bashing campaign against stubborn Serbia because someone still had to play the arch-enemy’s role while Russia was otherwise engaged.

In the ’90s I remember the talk, even among pro-Western and pro-oligarchy Russians, that Russia’s role was to be a ‘natural resources appendix to the West,’ sort of Nigeria of Eurasia. But Russia came back to her senses sooner than they expected. After Putin came to power, it became clear that the plan failed. At that point, with renewed vigor, they began re-establishing the image of Russia as the arch-enemy.

Ah, the schizophrenic American propaganda! But what is most amazing is how happily humans in the US and EU yo-yo wherever the wind blows.

As the old Soviet joke goes:

“Have you ever deviated from the party line?”

“Yes, together with the party.”

In conclusion, I want to mention that of all US presidents, the one I personally respect is FDR. It is suspected, and I have a good reason to believe it’s true, that Roosevelt was poisoned in 1945, to make room for Truman and his convenient russophobia. The change of wind happened after Hitler was no more and Russia turned out stronger, instead of weaker, as a result of WWII.

The master plan was that the USSR and Germany were supposed to destroy each other in the course of WWII, as explained by Churchill. Alas, that plan failed. Roosevelt was too amicable for plan B – destroying the USSR (far more than just containing USSR, as many have thought).

Referring to A-bomb, Truman announced after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, “Now we have the stick against the Russians.” Russia has recently de-classified documents confirming that after Hiroshima, USA was planning on destroying the top cities and military targets of Russia, including the capital cities of Moscow and Leningrad, Black Sea and Northern Fleets.

The delay was due to the fact that US simply used up its only two A-bombs in Japan. It took time to manufacture the new supply. Russians used this narrow window of opportunity to produce their own A-bomb, thus deterring the attack. When Americans learned about the Russian A-bomb, they had to go to plan “C,” commonly referred to as the Cold War and Iron Curtain.

Roosevelt was inconvenient because he dreamed of a peaceful ‘condominium’ between USA and Russia, according to Tarpley. And that was very dangerous for those whose life’s ambition was to execute the Full Spectrum Global Dominance doctrine they are still trying to realize today.

Regardless of what anyone thinks about Stalin, it has to be recognized that he was an even more formidable obstacle in their way. You could say he was the ultimate obstacle. As a consequence, he was poisoned in 1953. Stalin rejected the idea of the dollar as the only world-reserve currency. He also introduced the 100% gold-backed ruble, called Chervonets, used by the USSR for international settlements. After Stalin was eliminated, Khrushchev agreed to the dollar world-reserve currency status.

70 anniversary of great victory

P.S. Incidentally, a few days ago, the Russian ‘dictator’ Putin announced a sweeping amnesty to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Great Victory. Every 6th person may be released from jail.

Compare that to the world’s biggest democracy: US jails are in fact a profitable business and the US prisoner population is by far the largest in the world. That’s not counting all those unarmed people US cops shoot almost daily all over the country.

Happy Victory Day, Fr. Merkel! My Open Postcard to the German Chancellor

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

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

Recently, leaders of US, UK, Poland, Lithuania, and most other EU countries announced that they would not be coming to the May 9th 70th Anniversary Victory Day Parade, grand preparations for which are underway in Moscow. Moreover, Polish president proposed that World War II victory celebrations should be moved from their traditional place on Red Square to Poland. All this is yet another attempt to re-write history and diminish the role and sacrifice of the Soviet Army and Soviet people in winning that terrible war. It is also an attempt to paint black as white and vice versa in order to justify fascism again raising its ugly head in Ukraine, Baltics and other European countries. It is also a part of the smear campaign against Russia as I had discussed in many of my prior writings.

There is nothing new as far as the US and UK leaders ignoring the Moscow celebrations. They always find excuses not to attend. Let’s recall that US, UK, Poland and France were Russia’s (USSR’s) allies in WWII. That’s officially. In reality…

Regardless of the US and UK, German Chancellor traditionally attends Victory Parade in Moscow to demonstrate contemporary Germany’s continued commitment to the fascism-free world.

This year, Angela Merkel infamously announced that she would not be coming to Moscow on May 9th, because… she didn’t want to offend the Kiev junta.

In response, Vadim Raskin, Russian neurologist from the city of Novokuznetsk in the Kemerovo oblast, started a flash mob, which turned into a global movement (See report by Russia24: С Днем Победы, фрау Меркель канцлера завалили поздравлениями).

On his Facebook page Dr. Raskin wrote in Russian – below is my summary English translation:

“Become a part of the flash mob. Since Angela Merkel has refused to come to Moscow for the Victory Day, let’s bring it to her doorstep. Send her a postcard, congratulating her with the Great Victory. Buy a postcard, or create your own, if you have a color printer. Congratulate her with our mutual Holiday, using only good words and warm wishes, and mail it to: Deutschland, Willy-Brandt-Straße 1, 10557 Berlin, Bundeskanzleramt, Fr. Angela Merkel.”

Next, a snowball effect occurred, proving that one small person indeed can change the world, or at least shift it ever so slightly in the right direction.

Vadim Raskin’s Facebook page quickly got 1500 replies from people who said they were on it. Some got creative and started mailing Merkel old Soviet Victory Day postcards; others created postcards of their own with pictures of relatives who perished in WWII; yet others sent photocopies of heart-wrenching war-time letters from Soviet army soldiers and concentration camp survivors, styled as postcards.

People wrote that Europeans, especially politicians, seem to have already forgotten what happened during the deadly war that devastated the world. It is time to remind them.

Before long, the movement spilled beyond the boundaries of the city of Novokuznetsk into all of Russia, and then, beyond Russia’s borders. Bulgarian anti-fascist movement wrote to Vadim Raskin, promising to send Merkel a postcard every day until May 9th. Within several days, flash mob was joined by over ten countries, including Italy, Serbia, Montenegro (Chernogoria), Israel, Canada and US. Germans had become some of the most active in this chorus.

Vadim Raskin says: “I don’t know how Angela Merkel will react to my postcard and if there will be a reaction. But the response worldwide is enormous. I didn’t expect that. Regardless of what else changes in the world, there are things that should never change. Good is good and evil is evil, under any circumstances.”

Meanwhile, the Kemerovo governor announced that he would be recommending the modest Dr. Raskin for the Russian state award, for using his voice for good. The governor also may send his own postcard to Frau Merkel.

Latest news: having been flooded by postcards from all over the world, Angela Merkel changed her mind and announced she would be attending the May 9th Red Square Victory Parade after all.

I thought I should join the chorus too, in case Frau Merkel forgets again.

My open postcard to German Chancellor Angela Merkel:

red square 1945 parade

red square 1945 parade 2

First Great Victory Parade, Red Square, Moscow, 1945 

Dear Fr. Merkel,

Happy 70th Anniversary of the Great Victory of the Soviet Army over the German Nazis in the deadliest war humans have ever known. Here is my own family’s contribution to the Great Victory:

Maternal great-grandfather, Ukrainian: fought in WWII 1941-1943 as a colonel of the Soviet Army, killed in 1943.

Maternal grandfather, Ukrainian: enlisted as volunteer. Killed in 1945 in Berlin, shortly before the end of war by a German sniper, leaving my grandmother to raise her two small children by herself in the destroyed by war country.

My maternal grandmother and my mother, both Ukrainians, survived German Nazi occupation of Ukraine (Dnepropetrovsk region).

Paternal grandfather, Russian: wounded twice at Stalingrad, into his left arm and right leg. Because of that, after hospital, sent back home and survived the war. He had a large, highly visible dip on his disfigured forearm, where the bullet pierced his bone. His wounds would always flare up when the weather was stormy. Sometimes, he would moan at night, when his pain was especially unbearable.

I hope you like the famous Russian song Zhuravli (Cranes). It is about the Soviet soldiers who perished in World War II, defending the world against fascism. In case you didn’t know, 27 million Soviet citizens, many of them Russians, but also millions of Ukrainians, Belorussians, Jews, and members of all other 100+ nationalities that populated the USSR, died in that war. The song tells the story of how soldiers turn into white cranes, flying in the sky and calling to us, those who have survived them. (Zhuravli has its own Wikipedia page, and here is the English lyrics. I wanted to include German lyrics too. After a search, I found some other languages, but oddly enough, it seems to this day no one has managed to translate it to German.) Here is the YouTube link to this beautiful song for your enjoyment; I chose the original performance by Mark Bernes.

Wishing you all the best, Fr. Merkel. The weather should be getting better soon, I expect.

Sincerely,

Lada Ray
