31
The Ministry of Defense has declassified documents from the Central Archive funds by opening a special multimedia sectiondedicated to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Estonian capital of Tallinn from the Nazis. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.


Defense Ministry declassified documents on the liberation of Tallinn


According to the report, visitors to the new section can familiarize themselves with previously classified documents from the archives of the Ministry of Defense related to the liberation of Tallinn from the Nazis. In the section you can find summaries, reports and reports related to the capture of the city, archival documents about the death camp in Klooga, where the Nazis killed thousands of people during the retreat 3 and much more.

Combat reports, operational directives, award documents for distinguished Red Army fighters, evidence of the atrocities of the German invaders in Estonia and newspapers of those years tell in detail about the main events of the Tallinn offensive operation and (...) convey the solemn atmosphere of the liberation of the Estonian capital by parts of the Red Army Tallinn in September 1944

- said in a statement.

The Tallinn operation took place from September 17 to 26, 1944. It was conducted by the troops of the left wing of the Leningrad Front with the support of the Baltic fleet. The capital of Estonia, the city of Tallinn, was liberated on September 22, 1944.

As previously reported by the Ministry of Defense, on 22 of September this year in Moscow, in honor of the 75 anniversary of the liberation of the capital of the Republic of Estonia from the Nazis, a festive salute will be organized.

It should be noted that the Estonian authorities do not intend to celebrate the day of the liberation of Tallinn from the Nazi forces, since according to their conviction there was no liberation of Estonia in 1944, but the beginning of the "Soviet occupation". Russia's plans to arrange a firework in Tallinn were called a provocation. On this day, official Tallinn celebrates "Day of Resistance" in honor of the government of Otto Tief, which lasted from 18 September 1944 year (Nazi retreat from Tallinn) until 22 September (occupation of Tallinn by the Soviet army).

For Estonia, being part of the USSR means a time of occupation; therefore, celebrating the re-occupation of Tallinn with a festive salute is unacceptable to us

- stated in the Estonian Foreign Ministry.

    Another "grateful" little town. It is possible that the sense of memory and justice should not be so wounded that we should begin to accept that we did not liberate one or another unfortunate people or city suffering from the fascist yoke, but went to avenge and destroy the Fritz everywhere. No one even expresses gratitude to us for demolished concentration camps. I have never even met a similar thing from members of the forum with a white and blue flag.

        Why should such documents be kept secret?
        No, I get it. Implemented agents, names of participants whose relatives live abroad and this information may harm them. Trophies expressed in amounts in bank accounts. This really is not subject to disclosure.
        But such documents. What is the benefit to the Fatherland of keeping such a secret?

          The head of Rosarkhiv Andrey Artizov noted in one of his interviews: “We declassify documents in accordance with our national interests. There is a declassification plan. To make a decision on declassification, three or four experts with knowledge of foreign languages, historical context, legislation on state secrets are needed. "

      ... but they went to avenge ...


      No, it was they who were released and not avenged! They allocated lands, resources and specialists to the detriment of themselves for the thank you (and it is their ignorance that causes us such indignation)
      We did not burn out their villages and cities with a specialist. And that is why they have a stereotype that it will always be like this, they will always be able to recover after our "revenge".
      But, probably, fortunately, vigorous bombs do not suffer from such humanism, and what is liberation "along the western" from our side, they have every chance to feel ... At least once ...

      And let them know that their ancestors were sadists and savages. And we need to know their descendants (everyone wants to be proud of their ancestors, and since only a sadist can be proud of a sadist, everything returns to their circles), the apple does not fall far from the apple tree.
      besides, for those who want to live at the expense of others, work is occupation and slavery.

      We need to start doing anything without harming ourselves. Beer for yourself should be tastier than for export. Gas for itself should be many times cheaper than for export. To use their achievements, and not let in something better, by strangers.
      And most importantly, we do not need other people's savage gratitude, money, please, money ...

    And why this could not be done right away? Well, or after 15-20 years after the end of WWII? Maybe then it would not be necessary now to raise the issue of distorting the role and results in WWII ?.

    The term is regulated by the law on state secrets and the originally established secrecy stamp.
    And distortions to classified information are irrelevant.
    This is related to the motivation of those involved in the distortion of information.
    For these subjects, objective information has no intrinsic value.

    I would like to say to all racially correct Balts: there is nothing to blame for the mirror, if the mug is crooked. You lived so badly as part of the USSR that you were the first to begin secession from the Union. Nobody bothered you - a large ship, as they say, a large torpedo. Now you are already in the European Union, where you so stubbornly sought. Well, now finally satisfied? Dream come true idiot? But where are the paradise forests in your blessed lands? Where is the abundance and the highest standard of living that you were promised? Or is it again the insidious Russians are to blame that they did not prompt in time: not NATO to go to the Euro and NATO? So you are now independent and all as one Europeans - how can you tell me. You now look at Russia only from above and nothing else. Just know what is your main problem? You abandoned your historical past, and because of hatred of everything Russian turned into despicable mankurts. You have lost the respect of Russia for a long time, and you, in principle, are not worthy of the respect of Europe. But this is your choice, and you live with him further. Good luck

    Under the Union, only a republic could be called, as well, a provincial-farm region.

    evidence of the atrocities of German occupiers in Estonia

    So I understand for myself - why should this information be kept secret and is now issued as a great boon? Why couldn’t it be published before? What is the secret in the atrocities of the invaders? Germany were afraid to offend, and now are not afraid?

      Not the Germans were atrocious (mainly), but the local Natsiks, Estonian SS men and the like in Estonia. That's why they kept it secret: they were afraid to offend the friendly people of the ESSR.

    My grandfather came home in 1941 as a disabled veteran after being wounded near Rakvere. In 1945 he was awarded the medal "For Courage". I did not see my grandfather - he died before my birth .... And from 17 to 25 September 1944, one of my grandmother's brothers, Alexander Yegorovich Testov, liberated the Estonian SSR as part of the 1294 self-propelled artillery regiment, he added to the medal "For the Defense of Leningrad" the medal "For Courage" for these battles. Tallinn was liberated on 22 September, Haapsalu on 24 September. The regiment received the honorary name Tallinn. The battles for East Prussia were still ahead. The regiment was awarded the Orders of the Red Banner, Suvorov, Alexander Nevsky ... No matter how pompous it sounds: I remember and I am proud!

    Strongly disagree. Roll in and lift a second time, earning a second series of curses?



    Yes, let them rest there, having fled to the toilet in the outhouses of the West.
