    In order to understand that * the conspiracy of the generals * in 1941 was a reality, it is enough to familiarize oneself with the documents. And the main confirmation is the Germans postponing the date of the attack on the SOVIET UNION. Western district commanders ignored orders to prepare to repel aggression.
    I can’t believe in sloppiness, too Pavlov was authoritarian and did not tolerate the slightest deviation from the order. In the absence of knowledge and skills, it is also impossible to suspect, his whole career testifies to an extraordinary mind and will. Other districts commanders were no less knowledgeable and strong-willed.
    The way how the border guards were practically abandoned without the support of how the aircraft and tanks were destroyed can not be explained in any way other than outright betrayal. It is not possible to explain how the army depots were almost completely captured by the Germans. A lot of questions. Without awareness of betrayal, it is impossible to answer them.

      And it will be necessary ... It could not have done without him.

      Pavlov was too authoritarian and did not tolerate the slightest deviation from the order.

      Here are just the reserves of fuels and lubricants, his front-line district, he kept in the North Caucasus and did NOT DO ANYTHING to change the situation.

      Everyone has a limit. Pavlov would be good as a divisional or commander, but not as a district commander. He did not have not enough experience, not knowledge, for this.
      It will be more interesting to discuss the issue of the "conspiracy" when the investigation documents on the "case of aviators" will be revealed.

      You voiced the Khrushchev version. The fact that the commanders of the Western Military Districts did not comply with the direct order to deploy troops to repel aggression needed good reasons, and apart from betrayal, nothing can be seen. Do not humiliate the stupidity of even a traitor.

    Solid fiction. For all the time I heard one figure - 3,5 million of our Armed Forces. As far as I know, the number of the Red Army on 22.06.41/3/XNUMX was XNUMX million people. Maybe he counted more border guards and other parts of the NKVD in the frontline zone. In general, in vain I lost an hour and a half of time watching this video. I won’t watch this Martirosyan anymore.

    If you follow this pattern, then all the French generals were conspirators, and the English commander in chief Marshal Hort altogether dressed as a spyen. Who is worthy of Article 58-1a of the Criminal Code of the USSR 1935. so this is the Polish leadership that immediately took a flight to Romania leaving the army and country without leadership

    what a conspiracy - the generals were simply ideologically imbued with the theory of a deep breakthrough of the brilliant class ... of Tukhachevsky — small blood on a foreign land — because of this, and the placement of warehouses of the air reserve’s mob reserve near the border. and to the heroes of the border guards (do not forget that this was Beria’s department) a low bow for that courage and courage.

    I really “liked” the answer to the question: What now?
    Imagine the situation:
    Intelligence brings Putin a report with supporting documents stating that on July 22, the US Federal Reserve and other official bodies plan to block all Russian assets in Western banks and disconnect Russia from the SWIFT system ... Data on such possible actions has already been voiced earlier.
    What do you think Putin will do?
    Of course, he will call his friends Ayfonchik, Kudrin, Gref and Naibulina to get married. Those cheerfully and amicably assure him that this is all the machinations of couch potreots and this, in principle, cannot be. Why? Yes, because ... it cannot be all.
    Moreover, if other sources indicate different dates, this will only be in the hands of the giggling economic bloc of the government. Moreover, the likelihood that misinformation about other dates was provoked precisely by Putin's “friends” through his American chefs is not ruled out.
    I believe that soon reform is expected to reform and reduce funding. And the source of such truthful information will be transferred to the American FBI ... as an enemy of financiers.
    And you say Stalin ... Stalin ... the conspiracy of the generals.
