Analysis & Opinion, History, Russia

Oleg Kashin via Kashin:

“When Putin came to the top, to construct his regime of personal power, he could not not to rely on the war myth. The myth of a tough but fair leader relied on the myth of the war, and, as Putin’s regime grew, both grew together. Russia is Putin. Russia is the Victory of 1945. From these two equations we obtain a new equation: Putin now is the Victory of 1945.

“The May 9 parade in Moscow is not a parade to the memory of victims and heroes of the war, this is a parade of loyalty to Putin and his government. St. George’s black and orange ribbon, officially symbolizing that memory has now become a sign of the loyalty also. With this ribbon, pro-Russian separatists are fighting in Ukraine. It is important to them to feel as they were the heirs of the soldiers of the Second World War, opposing not the modern Ukraine, but the evil of 1941-45 that their grandparents fought against. The Western version of the war, whether it is the Holocaust or the division of Europe, or even Turing’s calculations that cracked “Enigma” code – all of these annoy modern Russian society, Russian society which has already agreed to include into the number of their enemies from 1945 all those considered to be enemies of the current Russian state including Ukraine, Georgia, and America. Vladimir Putin’s historical experiment has destroyed the memory, it replaced it with a trivial political design. This design will be short-lived. It will end with the end of Vladimir Putin’s power, and then Russian society will have to re-formulate its attitude to World War II again.”

    The fate of russia and its army of history rewriters , to adapt to the wishes of the “lider maximo” of the moment. The resultat of this constant manipulation , nobody knows what is true or not true , soon all the veterans from WWII will be in their nirvarna, and nobody will be left to tell the real events . The young liberal generation will believe the last issue , untill the next regime will decide the next version.
    Only waiting to see how putn & co will manipulate the defence of the fascist alliance in the thirties !

    UKRAINIAN TROOPS NOT “russians” took Berlin.

    UKRAINIANS were always in the first wave. The mass rape of German Women was perpetrated by the second and especially third wave – russians- mass murderer NKVD & other units who always were behind the UKRAINIANS machine gunning them down if they did not advance into annihilating German fire- they were never in the front lines never in danger- these were the rapists.

    Western media: begin your reports on these FACTS!

    ONCE BERLIN WAS TAKEN BY UKRAINIANS, the demonic genocidal maniac Stalin gave the order: “only russian troops will have the HONOR of receiving the conquered prize.” All Ukrainians were pulled back and russian troops brought in to pluck the cherry off the top of the conquered cake… “only russians will get the honor for Berlin” ordered the demon stalin. All this is fully documented in Anthony Beevor’s books as well as elsewhere
