In the United States will be a monument to Soviet pilots

83
In North Carolina, a monument will be erected to the feat of Soviet pilots who overtook the Catalina amphibious aircraft during World War II. About this on the eve of the ceremony dedicated to the memory of Russian sailors in Portsmouth, said Acting Mayor of Elizabeth City Rick King.


According to him, the monument will appear in the fall of 2018.

In the United States will be a monument to Soviet pilots


I think until the first of December. Everything will depend on the speed of interaction. When the monument will be delivered from Russia. Now the parties agree on a memorandum of understanding
- he said.

The decision of the city council to establish a monument was unanimous, the mayor called such solidarity “beautiful”.

Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov reminded about stories cooperation between the two countries, in which there are "glorious heroic pages."

When during the Second World War, the USSR and the United States fought together against Nazi Germany, an important part of our joint struggle was the Lend-Lease program.
- he said.

In 1944-45 years not far from here, at the US Coast Guard Base, Soviet pilots were trained in piloting Catalina seaplanes, which were then transferred to the Soviet Union.
- The diplomat added. In January, 1945, one of the aircraft crashed during takeoff.

At the base, at the site of the pilots' death, a memorial plate will be installed, and a monument in the city of Elizabeth City, said Antonov.

Vladimir Popov, head of the Russian Defense Ministry’s department for perpetuating the memory of those killed in defending the Fatherland, said earlier that, despite the friction, countries continue to actively and successfully cooperate in preserving the memory of servicemen and searching for information about prisoners of war and missing persons, transmits RIA News

          PANICHIDA ON RUSSIAN SEAFARERS HAS PASSED AT THE AMERICAN MILITARY CEMETERY IN VIRGINIA. (February 2018)
          The ceremony dedicated to the memory of the Russian sailors of the frigate "Svetlana", who died in 1877, was held at the cemetery of the Norfolk Naval Base in Virginia. The Russian military-historical society, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia and the Ministry of Defense of Russia, established several previously unknown names, as well as prepared and held commemorative events.

          The ceremony was attended by the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the United States Anatoly Antonov. He noted that Russian-American relations should be based on the positive experience of the past.

          - The return of names is always a connection of times. An occasion, recalling the past, to turn to the present and the future, ”said Anatoly Antonov.

          He recalled that "during the Civil War in the United States, the Russian Empire unconditionally supported the government of Abraham Lincoln, considering it the only legitimate governing body on American soil."

          In addition, in September 1863, two Russian squadrons arrived on the US coast: the squadron under the command of Rear Admiral Stepan Lesovsky went on a raid in New York, the squadron of Rear Admiral Andrei Popov arrived in San Francisco. The formal reason for this campaign was the threat of war between Russia and England and France over the "Polish question."

          It was in connection with this support provided by Russia that the frigates Svetlana, Bogatyr, and Askold arrived in Norfolk at the beginning of 1877 as honored guests of the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the most important naval battle of the Civil War at the Hampton Raid. Russian ships were invited to participate in the anniversary parade of the American Navy.

          During the expedition, due to illnesses, six Russian sailors could not return to their homeland. They were buried in the Hospital Cemetery in 1877 in Norfolk. Since then, six tombstones have remained nameless. The US military has guarded the graves all these years.

          A few years ago, the Russian Military Historical Society, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, began work on the establishment of names and restoration of the stone at the burial site, as well as preparations for commemorative events.

I was only sure that our pilots did not distill from the United States, they were their pilots and distilled only to our airfields. Or they were sent apart. Our only studied there. I guess I'm wrong.

                But if as you write, then what is there such euphoria? That the American mayor deigned (and also spoke out) to allow on his land to erect a monument to Russians, Americans and British for Russian (and not common) money?) If we compare our monuments with Ukraine and Poland, then yes! Peremoga! Gotta ride. And to remind with whose filing they are destroyed in the same Poland and Ukraine?

          Well, understand - the Americans could not do anything when they annexed (liberated) Crimea. The whole post-war world in Europe was built on the principle of inviolability of borders. In the case of Crimea, this principle was violated. And the West could not impose sanctions on the violator. Is Crimea worth living under sanctions, it's up to you Russians.

            Just do not need about the inviolability of borders. Yugoslavia collapsed .. Even new pseudo-states appeared. After a dozen years, Germany will require its lands chopped off according to the results of the Second World War. And sanctions, yes, they do not care about them. Personally, they have not touched me at all. Even the diet has not changed

    This once again confirms that ordinary Americans are by no means Russophobic and that today's pressure on the situation is beneficial only to the military-industrial complex, and on both sides and politicians who are gaining votes on the level of tension.

      We ourselves would express indignation with our posts. In general, people are all adequate, but the leaders of the states obey the desires of the oligarchs, which we have and they have.

      If in memory of the American pilots who died during the transfer of aircraft on Lend-Lease, it would be RAD and GORD for their Fatherland and the People, who, in the difficult days of our relationship, found the opportunity to pay tribute to the brothers in arms in a terrible war. And I really regret that we do not have such a monument, but there is a film ...

      Just like Comrade Stalin, you yourself can look for his quotes in the year 39-40, how the union will help the brotherly German people in every way in the fight against Europe. Or congratulations to Hitler on the occasion of the occupation of another country? It’s not worth talking about hypocrisy. it’s not violet to them that the common people did not spare life in the fight against the enemy, so thank them for that.

    Then I do not understand: why in Krasnoyarsk (the end point of the Alaska-Siberia highway) there is still no common monument to all those who have mastered the highway and brought Victory closer ?! By the way, I live in a neighboring house from the famous Aviadom (street named after Ak. Vailova, 35), where the pilots of the two countries lived and rested from the flight. While the house is just not the most "weighty" commemorative plaque .....

      Probably because the meager budget of your settlement will not be able to overpower more than a memorial plaque, and your head chooses to patch the roofs or repair the road. We have different approaches to the funded part of the settlements, the municipality collects taxes from them, and it waits for us when the funds are issued from the noble shoulder. You just have to keep the memory.

Here you are obviously weak. And we keep the memory, we have stored and will continue to store it without your opinion.

      So this question should not be asked to users of the VO site, but to the Novosibirsk administration. Take the initiative, collect signatures.

        You can, of course, ask a question. But where does the administration of Novosibirsk? We are talking about the end point of the Alaska-Siberia route, about Krasnoyarsk, the place where some arriving aircraft were repaired, refueled, and so on and flew to the Front. And others (mainly fighters) partially disassembled, put on the train platform and drove there. By the way, arriving planes landed on an island in the middle of the Yenisei (Molokov Island) very close to the historical center of the city. About the signature on the perpetuation of memory, I agree.

    "Catalina" before the war was built in the USSR under license. Called GTS - seaplane transport.
    Here is such a handsome man on the background of the river station in Moscow. Approximately, 1940 year. People in the picture are not known to me.

    And most importantly, Mongolia did not wait for 1944. , and from June 22, 1941. declared its support for the USSR
    [/ I]
    [/ I]
    Alas, you do not know history well, in the first months of the war, the Red Army lost about 4 million soldiers and officers prisoners, almost a million dead and died from wounds, the situation was catastrophic ..
    The USA has been helping the USSR since 1941,
    Zhukov: ,, "Speaking of our preparedness for war from the point of view of the economy and the economy, one cannot ignore such a factor as subsequent assistance from the Allies.
    First of all, of course, on the part of the Americans, because the British in this sense helped us minimally.
    When analyzing all aspects of a war, this cannot be discounted. We would be in a difficult situation without American gunpowder, we could not produce as much ammunition as we needed.
    Without the American Studebakers, we would have nothing to carry our artillery on.
    Yes, they largely provided our front-line transport.
    The production of special steels necessary for the most diverse needs of the war was also associated with a number of American supplies. "
    It cannot be denied that the Americans drove us so much material without which we could not form our reserves and could not continue the war ...[I]

    We had no explosives, gunpowder.
    There was nothing to equip rifle cartridges. The Americans really helped us out with gunpowder, explosives. And how much they drove us to sheet steel!
    How could we quickly set up tank production if it weren’t for American steel help? ,,

      You won’t bring it to anyone here. Proud patriots will say that this is all bullshit, we would have won, but a little longer. steel for production when you are not able to meet the needs for it. Everyone thinks that weapons, tanks and planes in the factories were pumped with a file.

Yes, it would be very difficult, sacrificial, terrible. But you would have won anyway ...... You’re a sucker, if you didn’t understand the obvious things about our people ..........
