Russian Ministry of Defense celebrates 75 anniversary of the capital of Latvia - Riga Special sectionwhich posted declassified historical documents from the funds of the Central archive of the military department. This was reported by the press service of the military department.


Defense Ministry declassified documents on the liberation of Riga


The Ministry of Defense has opened a special website, by visiting which visitors can get acquainted with declassified documents related to the liberation of the Latvian Soviet Republic from Nazi invaders. On this portal you can see the offensive plans, reports and summaries, newspaper publications and many other archival documents showing a picture of the fighting for Riga in October 1944.

It should be noted that in 1944 the inhabitants of Riga and other cities and towns of Latvia met the Soviet liberators with flowers and smiles, thanks to the liberation of the Nazi occupation from hell.

However, modern and "independent" Latvia does not intend to remember its history and honor the Soviet soldiers who laid down their lives for its liberation from fascism. The current authorities of the country declare that there was no liberation in 1944, but that the occupying power only changed, when the Soviet occupiers replaced the German invaders.

In July of this year, the Latvian Foreign Ministry issued an official appeal in which it stated:

We would like to remind the world that the freedom and independence of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were restored 45 years later, since the entry of the Red Army meant the resumption of the Soviet occupation


Despite the protest of the Latvian authorities, celebrations will be held in Russia in honor of the Soviet soldiers who liberated the Latvian Soviet Republic 75 years ago. On October 13, on the day of the liberation of Riga, a festive firework dedicated to this event will take place in Moscow.

        Peter the Great took the Baltic states. And our grandfathers and great-grandfathers just freed her. You know from whom.

          Peter the First defeated Karl 12 and bought from him a part of the Baltic. But the matter is not in Peter and others. We are considering the WWII period. So I say they did not release, but took. You can minus, argue, but they did, because I live in Estonia for 52 of the year and I know what I'm writing. They lived under the Germans from 1201 and were eternal vassals, and remained the same, and you say they freed.

              This means that after the victory over the Swede, in order to secure the Livonian lands to the Russian throne, they were redeemed for TWO million efimki (silver tellers) about which the records are in the corresponding agreements.

          Oh! I don’t want to argue, but I’ll ask again who was released from? From the Germans, or maybe from someone else, and if from the Germans, then the whole Baltic region was, is and will always be with the Germans. Or 40 thousand. in Latvia, 27 thousand Waffen SS legionnaires in Estonia (most of all Latvia, Hungary and then Estonia and others), somewhere 10-12 punitive battalions and different "Aizergs", "Kaitselit" "Omakait" Free Jaegers "in their to every family, someone fought for Germany. And this is that my father and his brothers liberated them. They defeated and defeated them. If released, then they should be in the camp of the victims, at least, but they are in the camp of the losers.

            Yes, you see, you are not happy with the fact that Russia breathed life into your countries, built factories, provided housing and so on, well, you really are a vassal, life is better than a slave than freedom?
            And what do your gentlemen do right now? To leave the brewery and immediately mark the bushes at the entrance, or when they wipe their feet about you, is this also the norm? What did you achieve after the collapse of the USSR, built new houses, new factories, industries, the violence does not leave the country, you are fine, live another 52 years in the same world where they will continue to wipe your feet and use it as cannon fodder against Russia !

              Do not confuse you "God's gift with scrambled eggs." After all, here the conversation was freed or taken with battles. I answer that they cannot be liberated, they want to be defeated, not liberated, and their best heroes are Germans. And where does

                      Here yesterday there were pictures where soldiers or rather pilots on foot with planes from plywood fleeing the parade (this was in Latvia several years ago). Do they have these airplanes? I’ll answer right away for Estonia, there are no airplanes, only rescuers have it (doctors there) and the border service has several helicopters. And while they are too early to retire (pilots). So this is a military pensioner of the USSR. And the planes we have at the former USSR air base Emari, but there the pilots there at the moment seem to be shaving, there were Germans, Spaniards and beyond, but not local.

          And if you look from the other side, then Nazism is an ideology condemned by all mankind, it is outside the law. Even many Germans sincerely believe that they were freed from Hitlerism (who and how is another matter) and are embarrassed by the art of their ancestors. In the same Germany, the march of former SS men is impossible by definition. So, the fastest, all the same - they freed.

            for me people are divided into two categories:
            friends are those who live for the sake of others.
            enemies - those who want to live, only at the expense of others.

      I have the same question. Keeping the documents of the war, which died down 75 years ago, under the seal of secrecy = this is complete nonsense. And the background is simple - in the 90s-2000s, the military archives were declassified and everything was ok, but then especially smart people took it and decided to "close it and not let it go" - and now they give out filtered information drop by drop, "no matter what happens and people do nothing did not think too much.
