Executioners Kaiser. Part of 1. Cut ears

52
It was believed that the First World War - the last, in which the opponents fought "in white gloves." Yes, some knightly traditions and manifestations of humanity met in it - and we wrote about some similar episodes (see Congenital chivalry). But, on the other hand, it brought unheard-of atrocities, both against the civilian population and the military.

Atrocities were practiced on both the Western and Eastern fronts. Many of them have been documented.

Executioners Kaiser. Part of 1. Cut ears









Not lagged behind the Austrians.



We want to consider the atrocities of the Austro-German troops on the Russian front of the First World War. They may not be as total as in World War II, but also quite revealing. In this article we will not consider the use of new species. weaponssuffering (bursting bullets, asphyxiating gases) or bombing of hospitals, ambulance trains and steamboats, as well as atrocities against civilians and in prisoner of war camps - devoting to this the following articles of the cycle.

We will consider the atrocities of the German and Austro-Hungarian troops against the Russian servicemen who were in the hands of the enemy on the battlefield. That is, in the period that envisioned an 3 exit: death, flight, or prisoners of war sent to the camp.

The sources for the article were documents, materials of the Extraordinary Investigation Commission and the press data of the Great War era.

Note that historically the attitude of the Russian soldier and his opponents to their opponents has always been different. So, during the Seven Years' War 1756 - 1763. the difference in the morale of the Russian and Prussian armies was enormous. I. Arhengol'ts wrote about how the Prussians, after one of the battles of many seriously wounded Russian soldiers left on the battlefield, were buried along with the dead — burying alive. Whereas even the lightly wounded Russian warriors of the seriously wounded enemy soldiers not only carried themselves on, but also gave them their bread and water — which they themselves then needed.

From the part of Russian soldiers and officers, during the battles of the First World War fell into the hands of the enemy, information was required. How did you try to get it?

Thus, the infantry corporal Vasily Water, captured by the Germans, the noncommissioned officer of the enemy demanded to provide information about the location of the headquarters and the number of opposing Russian infantry. After the corporal refused to report this information, the non-commissioned officer pulled out the dagger and cut off V. Water to the lobe of one ear and then the upper edge of the other. After that, the Germans squeezed the lance of the corporal with his hands - and the latter fainted. Waking up from a faint lasting several hours, V. Vodyany realized that his tongue had been cut out.



Similarly, Porfiry Panasyuk's ears were also cut. The truth in this case, the executioners were not the lower ranks, and officers. The document stated that a group of about 10 officers began to interrogate P. Panasyuk about the deployment of Russian formations. And he was promised a reward. After the prisoner refused to answer the questions, one of the officers brought small scissors - and with their help, the officer of the General Staff, who conducted the interrogation directly, cut off the ear lobe from P. Panasyuk. After and after that P. Panasyuk did not provide the necessary information, he had one cut out, and then two more pieces of the same right ear — above the lobe. Then the officer grabbed P. Panasyuk by the nose (with such force that he twisted his nose) and hit the interrogated person in the face.



The interrogated Cossack Ivan Pichuyev was hung up by the arms and legs - upside down. And then the German officer and privates cut off the upper part of the left ear of the Cossack, cut the ear and cut the longitudinal strips on the thigh of the 4 - in the form of a strip. I. Pichuev was examined by doctors of the Russian Red Cross.



Such methods of obtaining information from the Austro-German “Ukhorezov” are by no means an exception, as evidenced by the case of Alexei Makukha. Now Austrian officers took part in the execution: when Makukha refused to answer questions, he was thrown flat on the ground and his hands were twisted behind his back. Then one officer sat on A. Makukha, and the second, turning his head back, opened his mouth with the help of a bayonet-dagger, stretched out his tongue with his hand and slashed the latter twice with this dagger. Then the bloodied A. Makukh was led to the Austrian trenches. But along the road, taking advantage of the fact that the torturers began to smoke, A. Makukha fled. After this torture, A. Makukh actually lost the ability to properly swallow food and talk. Sliced ​​deep wounds of the tongue and heavy bruises of the larynx were installed. He could speak now only in a whisper.




I fell into the hands of the Germans and the gunner Semen Pilyugin. The officer began to ask the prisoner about the number of shells in the troops. S. Pilyugin said that the details will not speak (does not allow the oath), but the shells in general is enough - to beat the foe. Angry Germans hit the gunner, saying that his long tongue should be shortened. And when S. Pilyugin promised that even if 25 of the German corps arrived, they would not be able to calculate how many troops there were in the 25 years, torture began. By order of an officer, a German soldier with a stick opened Pilyugin’s mouth, and the officer pulled out Pilyugin’s tongue with some tweezers. As a result, the end of the tongue was cut off. S. Pilyugin also managed to escape and report his torments.

Another martyr, ordinary Anpilogov, was also cut off his toes during interrogation.




Sometimes torture was carried out without a specific goal. And it didn't matter who was being tortured - an officer or a soldier. In November, 1914, during a battle, Lovich was injured and contused by second Lieutenant Alexei Neklyukov - and captured by the Germans. They took him to the rear, and when the second lieutenant fell from weakness, they started beating him. Then the German took off the boots of the officer’s injured leg, tearing off his bandage, and began to cut his leg — across the wound. When the officer began to rush from severe pain, the German grabbed his little finger and, putting a thin metal object under his nail, tore off his full leg. Recovering, A. Neklyukov saw that the nails on all fingers were torn off.



Another document contains the following lines: “I donate that 26 of April of this year in vil. Vershi was delivered to the Cossack 5 of the special Don Cossack reserve, hundreds of General Potapov's detachment - Fedor Tsepin, 38 years old, wounded and, after being wounded, mutilated by the Germans under the following circumstances. 18 April of this year, in 8 - 10 versts from der. Tops, at night, the Germans suddenly attacked the village, whose name the Cossack Tsepin does not remember. While on patrol, Tzepin shouted: “Germans, Germans”, but he was hit by a bullet and fell to the ground. Immediately, several lower ranks of the enemy approached him, who began to beat him, already wounded, with their legs and butts, and then with some sharp tool, but not with a sword, cut his throat and threw him. He lost consciousness from blood loss. When he woke up, the enemy was already dropped, and our orderlies handed him help. He gives indications in writing, since he cannot speak at all, due to the cut of the respiratory neck and the anterior wall of the esophagus. Chief Medical Officer College Advisor Oat. Senior resident doctor of medicine Eliasberg ".

All of the above has been included in the report of the head physician of the infirmary number 1 38 Infantry Division.

The Cossack later died from brutally inflicted wounds - in one of the military-medical institutions, where he suffered for a long time.



It should be noted that the above-mentioned persons managed to get back to their own people, such as, for example, Makukha, Panasyuk, Vodyan, who managed to escape from the executioners. But how many similar cases remained unknown due to the fact that the tortured remained in the hands of the Austro-Germans?

Many fallen into the hands of the enemy Russian soldiers waited for an even more terrible end. Not content with torture in order to learn military secrets, the Germans and Austrians very often tortured and killed Russian soldiers without a specific goal - as a reward for the bravery of the latter. After all, nothing more than revenge can not explain the case of the poisoning of a captive Russian officer. The Germans laid a wounded man in a peasant hut on the floor and began to laugh together. Then the doctor approached the prisoner, despite the resistance of the wounded man, poured white powder into his mouth - and after 20 minutes the poisoned man died in terrible agony. The corpse was thrown over the fence, and Russian troops entered the village, buried the corpse, establishing the fact of poisoning.

Another witness recalled:
The messenger enters the room and hesitates:
- Your Excellency. Let me report ... They brought a soldier without a belly and without ... and he was silently confused.
- And without what? Well!?
The soldier is silent for some time, and then ... in his own way reports on "without which" they brought the unfortunate lower rank.
In the middle of the courtyard, slightly to the right of the line of the staff giggles ... there are sleighs harnessed by a pair of horses ... In the sleigh, across them, lies something strange and long, covered with a gray overcoat, from under which stick only the ossified legs with warm socks .
Raise overcoat ...
A young head with a face disfigured by a scream of agonizing death is thrown back and hangs from a sled. On the face, on the pyks and on the tortured body, already uneven, gray-blue spots, a terrible seal of decomposition are roaming. On the hands - a series of deep cuts, caused, obviously, with a blunt knife, bayonet, or, perhaps, a serrated saber. Instead of the abdomen, there is a bloody abyss with entrails falling out.
But that's not all ...
In the place where the genitals of the unfortunate were - a deep hole with ulcerated edges ...
A deaf murmur of indignation flies through the rows of people who surrounded the sleigh with the corpse:
- Murderers ... Murderers ... Torturers ...
- Do not pass you this gift ...
- What a sin, forgive my God ... To think only ... Man to man ... and suddenly he did "that" ...
I immediately left ...
After all, even moments are enough for him to be imprinted in the soul with indelible signs that will sound all his life as a call to pay. ”

An inquiry was carried out at headquarters, the information on which is given below.

“Inquiry: on the case of the disfigurement by the ranks of the German army of the body of the dragoon squadron of Her Imperial Highness, 3 of the Dragoon Novorossiysk Her Imperial Highness of Grand Duchess Helena Vladimirovna of Britvin's regiment.

Britvin Afanasy Alekseevich, comes from the peasants of the Vyatka province, Orlovsky district, Kovrizhsky parish, the village of Zaytsy. As a result of the verbal orders of Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna of the Temporary Commander of 3 Novorossiysk, the regiment I made an inquiry into the German case of the disfigurement of the body of the Dragoon squadron of Her Imperial Highness Britvin.

The junior officer of Her Highness’s squadron of the same regiment, Cornet von Trautfeter Pavel Ernestovich, 26 years, showed: “I temporarily commanded the escort. 7 March March 1915, my squadron was sent to patrols, and only the first platoon remained with me. The regimental commander ordered me to travel with this platoon, indicating the direction of reconnaissance. When it got dark, when I reached the final destination, I decided to spend the night, in view of the darkness and strong blizzard, choosing the village of Aukshtakalke for an overnight stay. At dawn the next day, I was awakened by a podchask, who reported to me that the German rider 2 was noticed by fasting, moving in our direction. In order to clarify the situation, I sent two or three horsemen, including the dragoon Britvina, to meet the German riders. Approaching the opposite outskirts of the village, they were shelled from close range. One of these shots was slightly wounded by a bullet of dragoons Britvin, who fell off a horse. The second watchman, the dragoon Yegorin, rode up to me with a report. I walked away from the village to a separate hamlet located half a verst behind the village, sending people to find out whether Britvin couldn’t be taken out. As it was more squadron against me, it was impossible to rescue him. Then the sentinel instructed the local to find out in detail about what happened to Britvin. After some time, local residents ran back and told my sentinel that the Germans, having pulled Britvin into the hut, cut his stomach and cheeks, and also cut his genitals.

Similar testimony was given by the dragoons, who were on patrol with Britvin.



A terrible incident occurred in the village. Khilichka of the Warsaw Province in October 1914. The Germans burned alive the Russian shooter, having previously tied his legs. The officers and volunteers, who turned out after the Germans left Khilichki, found a charred corpse - under the last remains of a campfire and a mass of cartridges from exploded cartridges. It was not possible to establish the circumstances of the torture - but on the subjects of uniforms and equipment they found out that it was a Russian shooter. Bound legs and the remains of a campfire were more eloquent than words.

German soldiers were burnt down by the Germans and in December 1914 near Dareim (East Prussia). Before 8, German soldiers grabbed a lost Russian fighter, stripped him naked and, putting down a fire, put him at the last.

The document also recorded a terrible case of mass burning of Russian soldiers 18 in February 1915 G .: the Germans, seizing 30 wounded Russian soldiers, placed them in a house, which, leaving the village, was set on fire. Most of the injured (only 10 people were saved) who could not move independently, were burned alive.

The nameless Russian Cossack was burned alive, right by the road along which the prisoners were driven. Locals reported - how unhappy shouted wildly at the stake, which the “civilized” barbarians of the 20 century had laid for him.



The testimony of the corporal Shpilyovy and Private Tikhenko allowed to establish the fact that the captured Russians were thrown into the San River: raising to bayonets, the Austrians threw prisoners into the river.

Wounded Russian soldiers were cold-blooded on the battlefield.

Thus, Pavel Kravchenko, an ordinary 102 Infantry Regiment, after an unsuccessful 26 battle. 08. 1914, being wounded, remained lying on the battlefield. And before his eyes, the Germans, who captured the remainder of his company, lined up the prisoners - and then they all were shot. The wounded man lay on this field for 2 days and witnessed how the German soldiers examined the lying Russians - and those who were still alive were pinned up with bayonets.

Another fighter reported: “When we attacked enemy positions, from which the Austro-German troops retreated, a few steps behind the enemy trenches, we found the 18 corpses of our intelligence officers - the lower ranks of the Finnish Infantry Regiment. These bodies were covered with stab wounds and black spots, apparently from blows with butts; some of those killed had their eyes poked out and their ears cut off, others had stomachs and genitals cut off. The sight of the dead was terrible, especially since they lay almost naked, without trousers and boots, which were removed and carried away by the enemies. ”

It happened that the Russian wounded Germans were buried alive.

From the testimony of Private Ya. M. Lukovnikov: “I was wounded by a bursting bullet in my left leg in the battle with the Germans 23 September 1915 of the year under Vilna. Lying on the battlefield, I saw how German soldiers raised a soldier of my regiment who was badly wounded in the shoulder, laid him on a cloth from a tent, and carried him to the pit into which the dead were buried. Despite the screams of the wounded man, he was thrown into a pit with corpses and covered with earth. I clearly heard his groans out of the ground. ”

And there are a lot of cases similar to the above.

And it is not for nothing that a captured lieutenant of an Austrian infantry regiment is being interrogated by 06. 06. 1915, stating that his division, already 2, is acting together with the Germans (mainly the Prussian Guard) for the month, said that if the Russians knew what many of them were suffering and terrible death, they wouldn’t be captured alive gave up. The lieutenant recalled how in April-May (when the Russians retreated to the San river and beyond), soldiers (Czechs, Ruthenians and Poles) repeatedly resorted to him and, in horror, reported how in the neighborhood German and partially Austrian soldiers engaged in torturing Russian prisoners. the latter were tortured to death. The lieutenant hurried in the indicated direction and saw terrible pictures - the corpses of disfigured, disfigured Russian soldiers. To the officer’s question, the German soldiers explained that they were following orders from commanders. The German officers, on the other hand, said that “this is the way” should be done with all Russian prisoners — after all, only a brutal soldier fights well, and cruelty should be exercised on prisoners. The lieutenant, noting that he saw dozens of corpses of tortured Russian soldiers on a relatively small front, said: how many corpses of tortured Russian prisoners are scattered throughout the territory of Galicia - it is terrible to think.

And all the more, it was not worth falling into the hands of the enemy to the sisters of mercy. The fate of the sister of the 6 Riga head dressing squad is a clear proof of that. As the document states, Sister Petrovskaya accidentally fell into German captivity in Courland, and then “was found unconscious in a forest near the city of Shavel, one of our troops who took her to the hospital ... Having been taken prisoner, the Germans drove her to bringing in ocopes ... Here she was stripped naked and during 1,5 weeks they were published above her, raped her by tens and hundreds, and not only the lower ranks but also the officers of the German army took part in it ... The patient complains of lower abdominal pain. .. The temperature has risen to 42 degrees, more whether vomiting appeared in the stomach. A complete picture of the inflammation of the peritoneum and the tissue surrounding the uterus has developed ... the first seizure occurred in the patient, manifested in severe tonic convulsions throughout the body, drooping of the head, prolonged stupefaction ... During one of the later, often following one after another seizures, the patient often repeated the phrase: "My God, for what you torment me, better kill me." To all this, one must add that the unfortunate is infected with a fatal disease. ”



The enemy has violated the laws and customs of war. And this was true not only of military personnel, but also of the civilian population - as we will see in the next article of the cycle.

      You're right. All discussions about the * culture * of Caucasians are either from ignorance or outright lies. There they instilled law obedience in such atrocious ways that politicians and writers-journalists and others are still bashfully silent about this. As soon as the Caucasoid thinks of impunity, so they show their essence, especially when they are a crowd against the defenseless.
      This is brought up among Caucasians today. Any illusion of impunity and they at once become sadists and villains. The most striking example is the Government of England in their fabricated * creaking case *. The impunity and full support of the queen removed the obligation to be cultured and simply decent people with representatives of the very highest * establishment *.

          It's not just hypocrisy. The British in the twentieth century killed more people than Germans or Japanese. Won even Churchill, who turned out to be the pinnacle of intelligence for the British, began his career with Kitchener, a sadist and rapist, and ended his career as a * thinker * justifying the right of the Anglo-Saxons to own the world and quite scientifically justified the destruction of peoples for the sake of the British empire.
          Sadism and the right to impunity are the basis of what is called * culture * in Europe. This is what the Poles and the Balts are striving for, and now the Ukrainians.

      - i.e. cut off ears is scary inhumane, and three-day shelling to arrange - is it normal? !! The war, in principle, is a wild and absolutely inhuman thing. And the man doesn’t care - they cut off his ear, tore off a shell fragment / cavalryman chopped his saber ..
      There is a fact of propaganda - "the enemy is the enemy and the beast !!". For war, this is absolutely mundane and normal - but now to draw far-reaching conclusions from those examples — as commentators do below — is at least strange:

    As I understand it, the column - “Missing”, that is, those who were not killed in battle and not registered in captivity, included largely tortured fighters - who fell into the hands of the Austro-Germans, but did not reach the prisoners of war survived.

        speech about the mass phenomenon

        They warmed up before WWII, and the Germans traditionally did not consider Russians like that for people.
        And the massacres were encouraged by management
        as answered the Austrian lieutenant
        German officers said that "this" should be done with all Russian prisoners - after all, only a brutal soldier fights well, and cruelty should be practiced on prisoners.

        I have a 12-volume Wreath of Glory - a collection about the Second World War.
        The following episode struck into memory.
        Summer 1941 Ours threw back the Germans and entered a ravine near the battlefield. An eyewitness writes: trees grew in a ravine and refreshing shapeless carcasses were hung on them, as in a butcher's shop. Only then did he realize that these were bodies of people — skinned, headless, etc.
        Nearby is a mountain of chopped meat, flat pieces of humanity. And, finally, aside - like plates in the dining room lay neatly put on each other 7 Red Army caps. Their owners found the end in this ravine - someone refreshed and hung on a tree, someone chopped into pieces.
        So PMV and WWII are links of one chain. How similar are the atrocities of the representatives of the "cultural race." The difference is only in the scale and regularity of repressive policies

          Well, according to all the “layouts”, in that ravine there were already obvious cannibals-neat people, with rich butcher's experience, who were very meticulously prepared to have dinner with a little man, but they were prevented ...
          In our area, this Hitlerite beast also “bloomed”, there was also a burial alive of Komsomol underground workers and atrocities over the captured reconnaissance soldier, it’s a pity that the ancestors of the muddy “Kolisurengoy” were not hooked (or maybe they are with the Nazi “pan-European” in the same wagon were?) ...

        What are we talking about, what is the targeted destruction of prisoners? We need to understand, we are different, our way of perceiving reality, morality, principles, traditions are different from Western European ones. We do not divide people according to grades, but they divide for centuries. Western Slavs, Romanians, Greeks are for them the second third grade, well, there are some Catholics, Greeks and the southern Mediterranean and the Black Sea for recreation and service, etc. Russian for the English-Germans on a par with insects. and the torturers of prisoners for us ghouls and nonhumans indisputably. For them - well, they got excited, the wings paws tear off the annoying fly in irritation, well, the fly got it. Someone in the occupied Russian village gave the child a chocolate bar, someone the child’s head against the wall, but that other civilizer treated him the same way - an insect

    The enemy has violated the laws and customs of war. And this was true not only of military personnel, but also of the civilian population - as we will see in the next article of the cycle.
    There is a book by O. I. Kazarinov “Unknown faces of war.” True, this book is about WWII, but what is written in it is the terrible truth of war. A war is always criminal, doubly criminal when, when the weak and defenseless suffer in a war, not guilty of this war .
    “The romance went somewhere, and gradually on the pages of books, on battle paintings and in motion pictures something ugly began to appear, like in a nightmare that cannot be expressed in words, but can only be felt. As if hell were opening before you, as if you were looking in into the eyes of death itself .... But the real war seems to be rows of chimneys of burnt villages, "death ditches" and mass graves, gallows and smoking funnels. And corpses, corpses, corpses ... The war froze in the eyes of children, naked women crouching under the bombs, surrounded by a rumbling soldier. Want to see the war? So look at a living ugly stump, once a man, look at the scabs of burned faces. Look and do not look away from the glass of eye prostheses, so similar to real eyes and so motionless dead. " Quote from the book of O.I. Kazarinov. "Unknown faces of the war."

      There is a book by O. I. Kazarinov “Unknown faces of war.” True, this book is about WWII, but what is written in it is the terrible truth of war. A war is always criminal, doubly criminal when, when the weak and defenseless suffer in a war, not guilty of this war .

      A similar book by Alexander Dyukov "What Soviet people fought for" about the Great Patriotic War from the first days of the war.

    A very important topic was raised by the author: it is shown that the atrocities of the Nazis in the Second World War did not appear out of nowhere and not from scratch, and they are just- CONTINUED PMV,
    And the continuation turned out to be possible only because the atrocities of the invaders in the WWI remained UNPUNISHED and completely silent. Few people know, but in the Second World War in Russia the same Extraordinary Commission for the investigation of German crimes worked as in the Second World War under the leadership of Rudenko.
    Nuremberg was also supposed to be after the victory, to judge the German criminals. But, after the Thief, the materials of the Commission by the Bolsheviks were destroyed, hidden and not announced to the people.
    Ships over beasts similar ships after the Second World War in USSR-not took place. For rogue occupiers became "partners" rogue Bolsheviks (Brest Peace Treaty of Rappal, etc.) to break through international “isolation”. And "partners cannot be called criminals. WHAT did this lead to ...
    And without the Russian part of the charges, -Nuremberg could not take place-as in the Second World War, in the Second World War the main atrocities were in RUSSIA,
    Thus, the policy of silence. concealment of atrocities non-punishment criminals naturally led to atrocities even more terrible- in WWII ....

    And the crimes started from the FIRST day the invasion of the invaders in Russia, in the city of Clich. It was destroyed by artillery, burned, hundreds of women and children were killed, chopped up, stolen in concentration camps. Then there was no number of atrocities of the invaders.
    PS materials of the Cheka were printed during the Second World War, they are available to the unit, thank God., Today. Hair stand on end and it is not clear that it is WWII, or PMV ....

      I do not agree with you. In your rejection of the Great October Socialist Revolution you do not see the obvious and therefore your message is erroneous. Nuremberg Tribunal of the 1945 of the Year. Who was the Soviet Union at this tribunal - the WINNER of fascism, Nazism, Nazi Germany and even the devil knows what, in fact the master of Europe. Who was Soviet Russia in the 1918 year - it was not even the successor to tsarist Russia, the Russian Empire. She was neither in the Compiegne Forest, nor in Versailles, where Germany signed the surrender. And since Russia was not among the winners, its opinion about the German atrocities was not at all interested in Europe, which was confirmed by the subsequent foreign intervention of recent allies. How they excelled in Soviet Russia can be found on the Internet. And yes, by the way, there would have been no October Revolution, or as you contemptuously call the Thief, the Soviet Union would not have judged at 1945 in Nuremberg. hi

    The beast man. It is clear that many here will be outraged and say that this is not so! Man has reason and this distinguishes him from animals living instincts! Then let's say this: the human beast is intelligent, although I personally think that all animals are intelligent, only this mind is different. The fact that a person is intelligent makes him an even more terrible beast than animals. A person can for years mock at a person like himself, but weaker, getting perverted pleasure from it. A person can torture and kill just for the sake of boredom and pleasure .... And every person is a beast. It just takes time, place and conditions for this beast to appear only. Most live their lives without showing this beast, occasionally releasing it to households, animals, releasing it at work, but there are those who have more opportunities to release it without consequences — those who work in law enforcement agencies, serve in the army, etc. Here they are then they are in danger that their rational essence can be devoured by the atrocious part of their personality, and this is irrevocably the very reason that explains the increased suicidal tendency and criminality of former participants in hostilities. War is evil, for it has the ability to cancel the prohibitions that restrain the animal essence of man.

        If I say that "any" person has a beast inside of himself, then it means any, without exception. And I don’t exclude myself. It all depends on how deeply this "beast" is hidden, which restrains its manifestations in the individual environment, national, family traditions, religion, upbringing, etc. I do not impose this point on anyone, but many famous writers came to the same conclusion .... We actually encounter the manifestation of the "animal" part of a person’s personality at every step, we’re just used to it and don’t notice it anymore. For example, outright anger and aggression of a sufficiently large number of forum participants in relation to the same participants acting under the American or Israeli flags. We can also observe those participants who aggressively “attack” the opponent, considering only their point of view acceptable and leaving the right of the last word only after themselves. Well, the "physical" cruelty .... You have already recorded all the Americans as enemies, they are already gradually ready to kill them, haven't you? Like they climb everywhere and all that ...., that is, they "earned" - already one "moral" permission was received. And will it come to real cruelty ....

              Under the system of oligarchic capitalism, there will always be a shirt to the body. Therefore, your Fed owners are building a non-slave society and hope that this will always be the case. But if you work to scrape this system constantly and purposefully, then the result will be. A person of the communist era can arise either as a result of the implantation of mental scanners, or in the conditions of the existence of Stalinist socialism for hundreds of years. Soviet people, finding themselves, practically without food, on a barge in the Pacific Ocean, did not gobble up each other, as representatives of capitalism would do.

          Thus, the Nazi Wehrmacht and the SS, former "governing civilizers", who didn’t repent and did not admit their own guilt, were to blame everything on their unreasonable Fuhrer "corporal" (stupidly preventing the Wehrmacht generals, in alliance with the Naglosaks, from defeating the "Eastern barbarians") and Bolshevik "Yude commissars", and they themselves "only carried out the order" ... winked
          They write about Hitler’s death camps, mass killings of captured prisoners of war and the local population, or “didn’t know” or “heard something, but did not attach any importance to it, but then, after the war (or in Russian captivity) they told me, and I’m here nothing to do with "...
          This is the same Hollywood, in an advantageous (for the blatant Saxons and now allied to them "Hitler-European" war criminals) vein, "re-showing" the story! The Germans took off a similar plan, whitewashing their own Nazi occupying criminals, the lying Russophobic libel "Our mothers, our fathers" and are proud of it, calling it "the truth about the war" smile ! A fresh example of “repentance in the Reichstag” shows how, by small (punctual) infusions into Russian educational institutions, work is being carried out implicitly to distort historical memory and purposefully deform the consciousness of the rising Russian generation in the interests of Hitler’s last ...
          The amerocolonial regimes in Eastern Europe and in the "independent" post-Soviet republics, consisting almost entirely of descendants of the Nazi occupiers and their accomplices, have completely wiped out the monuments to Soviet soldiers-liberators, and they themselves have been declared "invaders," while outright war criminals are true who served the Nazi, and then the London-Washington regime, declared "heroes" and "veterans of the struggle for independence" (against their own fellow citizens!) ?!
          “War is a dirty business from all sides.” - But it turned out that from the German side, from the Nazi “pan-European” occupiers, the war is much, much dirtier and inhuman, and you, Monster_Fat, under the American flag, for some reason acted as a lawyer Hitler’s fanatics ... it turns out that it’s not without reason that all these undefeated animals, like their bloody local minions, demyanyuki-crooks, with the help and “under the roof” of the USA-WB and their vassals, hid from just retribution for their crimes and quietly thrived on the territory North and South America .., and it is not without reason that Washington is more and more often called Washington on the Web (from the word Fascism) ?!

    Perhaps many are not up to date on what happened in Bukovina and Galicia. The ministers of the church learned that the Germans were coming and would kill Jews, this is already in those days. They gathered all the Jews who were found and forced to urgently sign up as Christians. A lot of Ukrainians are now in Bukovina, who, having Jewish surnames, are Christians. Aronovichi, Kelmans, Zilbermans. They said that before the war there were more of them, but part of the Germans killed, and most of Bandera.
