The newspaper "Pravda" on the Soviet-Finnish war of 1939-1940

260

The newspaper with which our story begins

Neither the jesters nor the fools scribblers
Do not embarrass your hearts anymore.
Your homeland was taken more than once -
We have come to return it to you.
Lyrics: Anatoly D'Actil (Frenkel), music: Daniel and Dmitry Pokrass


History in documents. Not so long ago, a series of articles devoted to the Soviet-Finnish war 1939-1940 took place at VO. The text of the articles was accompanied by photographs allowing you to see what was happening with your own eyes, and this is always a very correct decision by the author. However, serious materials of this kind, in my opinion, still need to be supported by documents and links to at least some sources. After all, whoever wrote about this war, in what kind of popular magazines no articles on this topic were found to me! There were materials in the newspaper “Secrets of the Twentieth Century”, in the Rodina magazine — well, just a lot, the Voprosy istorii magazine — even wrote with the help of documents from both sides, even the magazine Around the World — and he published several articles about “ Winter war! ” But where to get such materials? You can’t run into the archives of Moscow Region, where “everything is”. In order to get into the archive of the OK VKP (b) Leningrad, one must live there, the same story with the Russian State Humanitarian Foundation, in a word, finding something new on this topic is very, very difficult today. What about the photo? There is a Krasnogorsk archive of film and photo documents. For those who live in the Volga region, the KAPrivo archive is available, there are also very interesting photographs there, but this is all the time and money, which, as a rule, does not pay off with popular articles. However, there is a source that all historians should know and use in order to make their materials more interesting, to show events through the eyes of people of that era, through the prism of their perception and ... political conjuncture. This source, accessible to everyone and everyone: materials from the body of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks / CPSU - Pravda newspaper Every communist had to write it out and check its life path with its advanced articles. And if you don’t check, then ... what kind of communist are you then ?!



And today, we’ll try to tell you about the events of those distant years with the help of photocopies of the materials of this particular newspaper. Each photo will be given a short comment. The purpose of such comments is to draw attention to some interesting points of these newspaper materials, which a not very attentive reader (and there are, unfortunately, those on VO) may skip or leave without proper attention. So…


On November 10, this interesting article appeared in the newspaper. And she ... is really interesting in that it is an attempt to show the reader of Pravda that we have friends in Finland too, and of course London is to blame for Finland’s aggressive politics!


Detailed material about the anti-Soviet company in Finland. All is not bad, of course, but why is there a direct speech? As a rule, direct speech is introduced into the text of an article only when the author wishes to emphasize that he heard it himself. “Words” from words of others is not very professional


"Letter from Finland." One would expect confidence in such materials. But it is precisely they who usually cause the most distrust. Who led the conversation described in the material, where ... In a word, it would be better not to write like this than to write


War usually begins with such incidents. Especially when the war really wants a stronger side!


That was the indignation of our workers! Turned off the machines, quit work, and went to a rally! But only in the documents of the party archives there are ... instructions that such meetings should be organized, the number of participants should be rewritten, and reported to OK, who said what. That is - everything is organized and directed. And the question is - why are the rulers of Finland still pea jesters? What was their buffoonery? It seemed that they were shooting seriously!


But this is a note from the Government of Finland to the Government of the USSR regarding well-known events. There was also a response note by Molotov, but it is not interesting, therefore it is not given here. However, it is available in Pravda. Who wants can easily find and see


The message of popular indignation from Minsk. And here are the "pea jesters." Right ma'am, as we would say today


At night, the factory discussed the speech of Molotov. And when did you work? At work, you do not have to chat, but work with full dedication! Here is the best way to mischief the evil enemy, and from all these "discussions" he is neither hot nor cold


Since our citizens were deprived of the opportunity to read the foreign press, they had to take a word of it all ...


But this is just a masterpiece! Radio interception, and even translation from Finnish. You might think that the Finnish communists did not know the Russian language and could not directly contact the Soviet government on the radio? What was the money allocated to the Comintern for then?


How all is trite. We create a puppet government, help it gain a foothold in the country, then it “pays debts”. Reception is as old as the world!


Soviet citizens joyfully worry that an increase has occurred in their fraternal family of peoples!


Front-line reports appeared in the newspaper. At first they looked like this ...


We approve, and freed Finnish citizens approve too!


Soviet Finns in print are active!


But such messages could not be given at all. Because there were fighters and commanders who knew well how everything was “in truth”. And they could very well have blabbed later: by drinking, by stupidity, for the sake of a red word, or even out of harm. Their word bore weight! They fought! And ... how after their words to believe the "Truth", the newspaper of the Central Committee of the CPSU (b)?


Cats and dogs ... sorry. Relatives of this stupid Hutsunen, if he really existed, do not mind at all!


Then there was this ...


And then we will also demand not to leave the enemy a bundle of straw, not a liter of fuel, and even burn the house. A resident of them where to go in the frost in 30 degrees?


Then the messages from the front became very short ...

Well, now we will see the photos that were published in Pravda at the same time. All of them are very curious, although each in its own way.

For example, this one. Just a wonderful propaganda photo. On which our BT-7 tank is perfectly visible. Here the specialist will look at such a photo and ... involuntarily he will become unwell. Especially if he thinks, what if the Russians have a lot of these tanks on a Christie-style chassis, with sloping armor and clearly powerful aviation engine? And what will happen if their Stalin moves this armada on us?


November parade on Red Square. High level of motorization is evident.


Stalin and Voroshilov. In 1940, they were often portrayed together


And here is a very funny photo. The members of the Politburo are in hats, but Comrade Stalin is dressed very warmly. What to do, it was very cold in Russia in November 1940


Photo from the rally of "popular anger"


Caricature. Well, how can one do without it ... Previously, they painted on Hitler and Chamberlain, but after August 23 on Hitler it became impossible


And this is the T-26 tank in winter camouflage. The most interesting, however, is that this picture was taken about 10 days before the conflict began. But there is already snow on the border. The question is, what about the song on Suomi Beauty? There it’s about autumn, and when it snows, it’s already winter. So it turns out that the war should have started even earlier, that they even managed to order and write a “patriotic song” for it, but politicians didn’t grow together and the time had to be moved. And moved ... but the changes to the song just forgot to make. “And so it will do!” And it did! To the time!


And then there are three leaders and all of them are not only in power, but also the heroes of the Civil War. And all the others are simply gone


It is a tough job to stand at the helm of the state: look at the tanks, look at the planes, at the cars that are being prepared for production - and you also have to look at those!

      Agency "Havas" sounds funny, of course, until you take an interest. And closer - this is the agency "Franspress" until 1944! I'm not hinting at anything, but until recently, French was considered a diplomatic language, and even the text of a driver's license in the USSR was duplicated in French!

        What can be hinted at here?
        Havas, the oldest news agency in the world, lost its independence in 1940, after the defeat of France in the war. Agency advertising department retains name Havas, and the information branch came under the control of the Vichy government and became known as the agency France-Presse.

    We have not read the newspaper Pravda with articles about the "Finnish" war! We were not buzzed then ... and then they did not read us; because. , were illiterate as a child! But at school, in history lessons, we were taught that at the end of the 30s, the "Finnish military" got the Soviet country with its "endless provocations and even artillery shelling ..."! At that time, a significant part of the Soviet territory (even some suburbs of Leningrad ...) were within the reach of Finnish artillery ... The Soviet government repeatedly offered Finland to "exchange" some territories, offering instead of Finnish territories in the "Leningrad direction", Soviet Karelian territories with an area much larger than the Finnish ..., which are the subject of "bargaining"! But the "Finnish bourgeois circles, encouraged by the Anglo-French militarists" did not stop their dastardly provocations, in the hope of achieving revenge! Which forced the Soviet government, grudgingly, to begin an event to "enforce peace"! PS USSR cinematography created documentaries and even feature films, which showed how Finnish workers in the territories liberated by the Red Army created volunteer detachments of the Finnish Red Army, which, together with units of the Red Army, fought the "Finnish military clique"! (I once watched such a "feature film" ... just don't remember the name, and the plot really ...) By the way, in 1940 the Karelo-Finnish Union Republic was formed, which became the 12th republic in the Union, and in later, 16th ... and the coat of arms was slightly different!

No wonder they write that the devil is in the details. By the way, I found confirmation of this again in the newspapers and write about it. In the meantime ... everything is in front of you, read, see ... There will be a sequel - according to the newspapers already in 1940. I ordered them already.

        Hmm, like somewhere I saw the truth of those years in pdf.

        And the digging under the Soviet regime is credited. Moreover, these puppets of the West (nothing has been heard about the State Department yet, the Englishwoman was shitting), the atrocities of some gangs, the people's government of the people's republic. And the style, stories from the first person without the author's indication, a meaningless set of words from the officials. The Swedish newspaper tells about the "White Finns".

        And "Muscovites" so generally hit below the belt. What are you hinting at, whose mill are you pouring the water into?

        War usually begins with such incidents. Especially when the war really wants a stronger side!
        Finland was promised support from all over Europe. WIKI:
        Assistance to Finland on a different scale was provided by Great Britain, Hungary, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Norway, Poland, USA, France, Sweden and other countries. Finland received 350 aircraft, 500 guns, more than 6 thousand machine guns, about 100 thousand rifles and other weapons [1], as well as 650 thousand hand grenades, 2,5 million rounds and 160 million rounds. About 26 thousand volunteers arrived from 11,5 countries
        This is what they managed, they promised yet, but the war was over.
        the Prime Minister of the Polish government in exile, promised to send the Polish separate mountain brigade to help the Finns. Help was organized too late.

        Caliber: And the question is - why are the rulers of Finland still pea jesters? What was their buffoonery?
        And the buffoonery and foolishness of the rulers consisted in the fact that they believed that all of Europe "would go to battle for them." And Germany has already torn apart Poland, France is next. And who are they after that?

      Well, yes, well, yes, "the raid on the regions of Murmansk and 60 planes destroyed at the same time" is a holy truth, of course.
      Where scans of articles, the author’s comments can still be understood, but his comments under the photo are frankly unreasonable.
      "And of course London is to blame for Finland's aggressive policy!" what to do, then Washington in anti-Sovietism-Russophobia was still not particularly fierce.
      "Everything is not bad, of course, but why is direct speech here? As a rule, direct speech is introduced into the text of an article only when the author wants to emphasize that he heard it himself."... "As a rule" - the author of this article came up with such a rule himself?
      "It is with such incidents that wars usually begin. Especially when the stronger side really wants a war!" Or when the weak side has "lost his sense" and sense of reality. The Finns have repeatedly shelled Soviet territory and citizens, many times and long before Mainila.
      “That was the indignation of our workers! ...... and went to rally! But the documents of the party archives contain… instructions that such rallies need to be organized, ........ That is, everything is organized and orchestrated. And the question is - why are the rulers of Finland jesters peas? " - Perhaps the author of the article believes that the Maidan was spontaneous? Well, a meeting and a meeting, or did he go for days? If a crowd came to smash the Finnish embassy, ​​would it be better? "Foolish peas" - perhaps it would be worthwhile to write "stupid people who are crazy", but then the Soviet officialdom did not even express itself about a very likely enemy that way.
      "And this is a note from the Finnish government to the USSR government about the well-known events. There was also Molotov's reply, but it is not interesting, so it is not given here." Did the Finns print Molotov’s response note? The author of the article was shy, she was not interested, he read it, that’s enough.
      "And then" jesters are pea. "Downright ma'am"Ma'am, it's like sir, only ma'am, is the author accustomed to addressing the authorities like this? It can turn into a MEM."
      "At night at the plant we discussed Molotov's speech. And when did you work? At work you shouldn't talk." The devil rally apparently dragged on, I was wrong a little, but it is better to hold a rally at night than to work hard, the author apparently didn’t work at night.

      "Since our citizens were deprived of the opportunity to read the foreign press, they had to take all this at their word ..." How would we NOW be able to observe the Russophobic tone of both tribalt and Nenki and Poland, so that one could believe Soviet propaganda in this matter.
      "But this is just a masterpiece! Radio interception, and even a translation from Finnish. You might think that the Finnish communists did not know Russian and could not directly contact the Soviet government via radio."The Soviet government tried to conduct, and conducted as far as possible, its affairs honestly, and probably demanded the same from its protégé! So the program was broadcast in Finnish, I have no doubts! It's another matter that it was dubbed in Russian, I have no doubt either."
      "How commonplace it is. We create a puppet government, help it gain a foothold in the country, then it" pays debts. "The reception is as old as the world!"What is possible for" civilized countries ", of course, is impossible for the USSR / Russia? Truly an anti-Soviet is always a Russophobe!
      "Soviet citizens are joyfully worried that an addition has occurred in their fraternal family of nations!" How was it with Crimea do not remind?
      Further military propaganda, which was mostly clumsy, but to exaggerate the loss of the enemy and the success of their troops is simply obliged!
      "And this is a T-26 tank in winter camouflage. The most interesting thing, however, is that this picture was taken about 10 days before the start of the conflict. But there is already snow on the border. The question is, what about the song about" Suomi-beauty "? then we are talking about autumn, and when the snow lies, it is already winter " Is the author not living in Russia, or does he have a special calendar? In November, snow may be in full swing, despite the fact that November is generally the autumn month.
      "It is a difficult matter to be at the helm of the state: look at the tanks, look at the planes, at the cars that are being prepared for production - and you also need to look at those!" Whether business now, at a parade once a year looked, and it is good. No meetings with designers and directors of the flagship factories.

        - so the USSR (and Russia now) is morally opposed to the "imperialist West". On VO you can find a bunch of comments and articles about how local "hurray" call Japan a "colony" of the United States, for example, the Americans are accused of creating puppet governments, etc.

        And it turns out that the USSR began to pursue such a policy long before the United States.

The ultimatum party offers the opponent a choice between strict compliance with the requirements or more severe consequences in case of failure.

                        The difference between the USSR during the "Winter War" (two years maximum) and the United States of the last 120 years is that the USSR did not seek to cash in on the territory of its neighbors, but acted strictly in order to ensure its security, pushing the land border, and even breaking the Line did not finish off to to hell with Finland, having all the possibilities for this.

Therefore, everyone who is involved in an event chooses his own side of the "front" and believes in what he wants to believe.

        Maybe you think that there were two states on the territory of the USSR - the European USSR and the Asian USSR? The events of that time that took place in Europe and Asia were very closely related and not only in the USSR, but also in England, France, Germany, Spain, etc. I will give an example: at the end of the 30s, fascist Germany had a very large influence on the territory of Afghanistan, even a plan was developed to create military formations from former Basmachi (somewhere from 50 to 200 thousand soldiers) that were supposed to attack under the leadership of German officers Soviet Turkestan, thanks to the joint operational activities of Soviet and British intelligence in 1942-43, this "problem" was radically solved. Until 1944, a powerful military group was stationed on the southern border of the USSR, which, even in November 1941, was not touched and was not transferred to the front near Moscow. So what does it have to do with seemingly Asian Afghanistan and fascist Europe?

      It seems to me difficult to justify clumsy anything at all, and there is no need to justify it. Vyacheslav Olegovich has already answered you within the framework of his favorite Pareto law smile and you can agree with him -
      Quote: kalibr
      20% have a very strong informational impact on 80 ...

      The task of state propaganda at that time was primarily to influence these 20%, which subsequently will form the opinion of the remaining 80%. Since the latter is mostly a damn thing, they are interested in most of the questions from case to case and they will not be engaged in searching for information in old newspapers or books - they will ask an authoritative person - the foreman, chairman, and just a fellow villager who is considered smart.
      It is now the media have the ability to literally wade into every house and impose a certain position on each individual, forming "public opinion." At the end of the thirties, there was no such opportunity, the available means could cover only a small, most active and developed part of the population, which would then inevitably broadcast the information received to the masses.
      Therefore, mistakes in the choice of methods of state propaganda, its "clumsy" will in any case be unforgivable.
      And still, a respected author of the article (Vyacheslav Olegovich, my respect hi smile ), in my opinion, is not quite right in his criticisms, because he assesses the work of Soviet propagandists from the heights of today's knowledge and skills in this area, which have gone very far ahead for 80 years. It is difficult to say whose propaganda in those years was more convincing - Stalinist, Hitler or Western-bourgeois, but in general both the one and the third managed their task, so our Soviet journalists’s assessment of such a severe assessment that the author gives them don't deserve it.

If a crowd came to smash the Finnish embassy, ​​would it be better? "Foolish peas" - perhaps it would be worthwhile to write "stupid people who are crazy", but then the Soviet officialdom did not even express itself about a very likely enemy that way.

    What is this strange way of translating arrows? And then the Maidan. It is about organized popular approval in 1939. There is confirmation of this in party documents. About the Maidan is a separate conversation. And all kinds of insults to the enemy in the press are simply stupid. Because extremes are always harmful.

    November parade on Red Square. High level of motorization is evident.

    Firstly, the parade in Minsk and not in Moscow.
    And secondly, the irony is inappropriate, because the artillery tractors were not enough in the Red Army, which is why our artillery was so unsuccessful at the initial stage of the war.
    As for the assessment of the Finnish war, it should be studied from the work of professional military personnel, and not from journalistic articles, which in Pravda were more propagandistic than analytical.
    For example, there is interesting material:
    The results and lessons of the Soviet-Finnish war
    WAR # 4/1990, pp. 33-39
    The war showed the lag of the Soviet Army from the general pace of progress in military affairs. Many issues of military construction were resolved slowly, as a rule, using outdated provisions, taken mainly from the experience of the civil war. After analyzing the state of the Armed Forces, the military-political leadership came to the conclusion: in order to successfully repel aggression and wage a modern war, a radical restructuring is needed. At a meeting of the Main Military Council on April 17, JV Stalin made a big speech acknowledging the fact that the cult of traditions and experience of the civil war prevented a restructuring, a transition to the rails of modern warfare. He urged to study the archives of the Germans, French, Russians in the imperialist war.

    The Main Military Council recommended that obsolete models of military equipment be removed from service and the development of new ones began. The combat training, organization and organization of the troops of the Soviet Army was prescribed to be conducted taking into account the experience of the war in Finland. The united states of rifle, tank, artillery and special units and formations for peacetime and wartime were established. Measures were taken to provide the army with charters.

        Sorry to interfere with your dialogue, but I just want to remind you that PR and advertising specialist is not a propaganda specialist because these are very different directions. For example, I studied the subject "Propaganda and counterpropaganda" at the military-political school (77-81), and the subject "PR and advertising" at the university (90-95). There is also practical experience in both subjects. Believe me, from the point of view of propaganda (imposing a certain ideological attitude on society), hanging "noodles" or manipulating public consciousness (PR and advertising) is short-lived and counterproductive. "Propaganda" carried out within the framework of the "PR and advertising" methodology is still to study biology with the "tools" of philosophers. Therefore, you are unlikely to be able to draw the right conclusions and manipulate the mind of the reader. Well done, you came to publication in this form (real articles from real newspapers in real time), it is more correct to trace how the Soviet propaganda of the war with Finland changed in the newspapers of that time.

The Ukrainian Maidan led to the Odessa Khatyn, to the bombing and shelling of Donbass, when both children and civilians died, and they are dying now. Maidans in Arab countries are still hiccuping blood, while the Maidan in Hong Kong is limited to a decline in prestige and economy, but this is only for now. Swamp Madanchik did not lead to serious consequences only because of the participation of "office plankton" (quote from Nemtsov).

    And this is the T-26 tank in winter camouflage. The most interesting, however, is that this picture was taken about 10 days before the conflict began. But there is already snow on the border. The question is, what about the song on Suomi Beauty? There it’s about autumn, and when it snows, it’s already winter. So it turns out that the war should have started even earlier, that they even managed to order and write a “patriotic song” for it, but politicians didn’t grow together and the time had to be moved. And moved ... but the changes to the song just forgot to make. “And so it will do!” And it did! To the time!


    The author once again contributed to the denigrating of Soviet history, placed a sarcastic comment under each picture, he really wanted to present the USSR as an aggressor, for which he was replicating the myth of the song about Suomi-Beauty.

    Only he is wrong, the words of the song were written not in August, but at the end of 1939, and the disc was released only in 1940. This song began to be sung en masse after the 1940 film "Mannerheim's Line" was released. The date of the record (allegedly August 1939) was falsified by the Americans and disseminated this information on the Internet.

    In August 1939 they did not even think about the war with Finland in the USSR, they hoped that the Finns would agree to an exchange. They were given 2,5 times the large territory. The goal was clear: it was necessary to secure Leningrad and Kronstadt from shelling from Finnish territory. Mannerheim agreed to these conditions, but the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the war were on his conscience.

    There is a Finnish film about the Winter War, which begins with a general mobilization on October 13, 1939 (in fact, it began on October 10). For 1,5 months, the 600-thousandth horde of parasites played the fool. Finland was afraid to demobilize, but it was expensive to keep so many parasites in the army. Therefore, they needed a war and, hoping for the support of England and France, they staged an attack on Mainila.

    So it was necessary not to be fooled. But just wait ... And so we showed the whole world that the USSR, with all its might, was, firstly, not so strong, and secondly, his exclusion from the League of Nations greatly undermined our prestige in the international arena. One cannot agitate for an international brotherhood of workers and peasants, and at the same time ignore the participation in the work of international organizations. This gives hostile propaganda an excellent chance of success. And there is nothing to parry. We are out of the game. The stands deprived us! Even in the Tsar’s Duma, Lenin called for work to use her tribune, and admitted that the boycott of the First Duma was a mistake.

      Why wait? 1941 year? Then the Finns would immediately take Leningrad
      Who needs it, the military power of the USSR was understood even then. Even Hitler wrote. Mussolini: "Taking into account the possibilities of maneuver and supply, no force in the world could, or if it could, only after prolonged preparations, achieve such results in frosts of 30-40 degrees and in the area that the Russians reached. ”

      All other statements of Hitler about the actions of the Red Army in the Finnish war in an insulting form were made for publicity, in order to inspire listeners to fight Bolshevism. This letter was not subject to publicity, and the leaders of fascism had no reason to lie to each other ..

      Prime Minister of France. Daladier, speaking in Parliament on March 19, 1940, stated that for France “The Moscow peace treaty is a tragic and shameful event. This is a great victory for Russia. ”

      Leading newspapers in America noted that "The victory of the USSR was a blow to the prestige of Western countries." The New York Times military columnist D. Aldrich drew readers in the US to “The Red Army’s breakthrough of the Mannerheim Line ... is the most outstanding military feat since the last war.”

      But the scout traitor Rezun (Suvorov) wrote in one of his books that in the USA the military operations of the Soviet forces on the Karelian Isthmus were modeled on a computer and military experts came to the conclusion that it was impossible to take the Mannerheim line.

      What is considered to be exclusion from the League of Nations is a dead thing. Firstly, she was incapable, and secondly, she quickly "ordered to live". Thirdly, the USSR had a Cominern at that time ..

            Alexander! This is the first creation of the author that caught my eye. Rezun has very cleverly built spoons of honey in ointments. For example: Was there a naval base in Pina? Was! It's true? True! Only now Rezun "forgets" that at first it was a naval base of the Pinsk Polish military river flotilla. Was there a channel? Was! True? True! Only it was not built by convicts, of whom, according to Memorial, there were none in the vicinity, but built for the king of punk at 18 ?? d serfs. And well built! it functions today practically in its original form! The Poles used it in full, calling it "Krulewski"! Monitors were on Pina? There were! True, everything is also distorted here - most of the monitors were captured Polish, some were Soviet-built. But both those and others, like the rest of the ships, had a draft of the order of no more than 1 meter 50 cm! Otherwise, they would not have passed through a canal and a pin - there the cows wade in many places! Where do the "super-monitors" come from? Such monitors Rezun subtracted in the English editions - in the English navy, just such were available in WWII. The largest monitors were built for the Amur Flotilla in Kiev, but were not completed and were flooded. Did the Pinsk flotilla have naval aviation? Was! One P-10 squadron. Read yourself whether these airplanes could threaten Berlin? Was there a Marine Corps? Was! true truth! Only here Rezun "forgot" to mention - one company that moved on carts! And, the cherry on the cake - could the flotilla threaten to go as far as the Oder? She could not go out to the Bug either - the channel in Mukhovets ended with a retaining wall! The Germans bombed it in the first hours of the war, the water leaked out and the ships could not even reach Kobrin! T e everywhere is not a solid lie, but what you gracefully called "though sometimes the truth breaks through."

                You very skillfully walk away from what I wrote to you. Nobody disputes nonsense just because nonsense is clear to all professionals. You are fixated on one obzat, and not on the rationale of the "impossibility of a breakthrough." Breakthroughs of long-term fortification lines took place in WWII on all fronts and by all armies. Take an interest. The way and how Rezun "programmed" in an English college and whether he programmed at all is hidden by darkness, but it seems to me that this type of teaching would not be allowed at all, so wipe the dust from the exhibits. The British military should not be considered so stupid that they do not understand the full value of Rezun's delights and his "high" qualifications. And yet, I do not defend anyone's libel, I wrote that I am not familiar with the works of this gentleman and therefore I do not undertake to judge them, and what I read is only a part of what was promised. That will give out everything - then the subject of the dispute will be clear. So far, only photocopies of newspapers, by the way something interesting to read.

                  I don't give a damn about Rezun, I know the price for him. I just cited the fact voiced by him, along with other arguments, to emphasize: what a feat the Red Army made by taking the Mannerheim line.

                  As a result of the war, the border was pushed back 150 km. from Leningrad, which saved him from occupation. In the case of maintaining the border at Sestroretsk, the Finnish-German forces could already freely shoot from long-range artillery even before entering Soviet territory. In such circumstances, in the first weeks of the war, they had good chances to capture Leningrad on the move, with one tank throw.

                      The Finns had enough long-range guns, both stationary and mobile on railway platforms, which perfectly shot through the northern regions of Leningrad. The fact that they did not fire at the same intensity as the Germans was another matter.

                      I hope you do not write Shirokorad to propagandists, read at your leisure.

                        It turns out that the border movement as a result of the Soviet-Finnish war did not save Leningrad from shelling from the Finnish side during the Second World War. Q.E.D. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Everyone reads the text the same way, and letters seem to parse the same way, but everyone understands everything differently. My opinion is from the article (so far in any case) a very harsh and nasty little bears. Yes, the press wrote what it was supposed to write. The government tried to avoid war. The opposite side did not understand the good attitude and then the weapon spoke. All history has put in their places. But, think about it, if the Finnish government agreed to one, even the most advantageous proposal of the USSR, then the Finns themselves would have avoided all the horrors of war, and as a result? As a result, everything was established today, approximately as suggested by the USSR government at that time. Everything else is an empty talking room in the spirit of liberal word production.

There is no impartiality that a scientist should have, there is some kind of teenage resentment at the discrepancy between reality and personal expectations, this raises a suspicion of interest in this denigration.
              And the history of the country - whatever it was, should be respected if you are not a mankurt. Although ... the intelligentsia of the Russian and especially the Soviet period of the late USSR had a birth disease - to slander the country.

                      But people who are literate and knowledgeable in military affairs, immediately realized, just like you, however, that this is a dummy that you need for your own ego, and which cannot be considered serious work on the history of the Great Patriotic War.
                      However, you yourself evaluated your material, saying:

                        I don’t know how about you, you are our literate, but I’m talking about one thing for you, and you tell me with the stubbornness of an idiot about another. First of all, read not only yourself and my answers, but also other people. As you can see, many people liked the material. Well, thank God! An Internet site is a collector of popular science information, and the word "popular" is the dominant one. Therefore, here and about Hyperborea, and "dummy" from "Pravda". If you want serious publications - welcome to the pages of the magazines "Voprosy istorii", "VIZH", "History of the Russian State and Law". And here it is not necessary to look for something that simply cannot be here. And no ego has anything to do with it, writing in VO is my job. Go to the profile and see the status. Visitor - visits and leaves clicks and comments. Journalist - writes articles for him. Different people, different articles. I hope now I have already explained everything in an accessible way? And soon the same articles with newspaper clippings will appear and some will like them again, but some will not. So what?

      Dear Alexey! This is what ... So I just returned from the archive, where I shoveled the entire binder TRUE for the WHOLE 1940 to write a sequel. And now I'm in shock myself! However, wait until the material comes out, I will try to quickly make and lay out. To say what's interesting is to say nothing!

    Doubts arise not formal - not to the profile, but to the essence of the message. Some kind of children's comments on the photos. An attempt to judge that time from the perspective of the present, one-sided coverage, characteristic of a propagandist, but not a scientist.
    Now, if archival photos of Finnish concentration camps with children from the USSR were given in parallel (http://nurman.ru/news/jarl-burenstam/rassekrecheny-dokumenty-o-finskih-konclageryah-v-karelii-r12757/), photos of Finnish soldiers digesting the skulls of the murdered Red Army men to make souvenirs from them, one could at least stutter about some kind of neutrality. In the meantime, I see only the blackening of the history of my country. And there is a feeling that the author is not from here, so it’s so dirty my story - not my own, not sorry.
    And the name, I can put any in my signature in violation of the rules, this is not an argument at all.

    You know, there are two pillars on the site
    . Kaptsov and Shpakovsky. And the swearing all the time is not right there, it’s not right here. Just read Shpakovsky's books. They are on the Internet, read them. Fine?

      Can you provide a link to his works on military affairs or military history, which deserve the attention of professionals and everyone interested in this?
      Agree that rummaging through everything that a prolific author has written is counterproductive, if only because not everyone has the free time and desire to do this.

        "Samurai. The first complete encyclopedia" (Yauza), "Crusaders. The first complete encyclopedia" (Auza), "The most famous tanks of the world" (AST), "Technologies for managing public opinion" (Infra-Engineering). In Germany, in Russian, there is a monograph “English-language historiography of knightly weapons” (Lambert) To choose from!

          From this selection, you may be interested in “The Most Famous Tanks of the World” (AST), but the fact is that I was in Kubinka and saw them with my own eyes, and the lecture was given to us by the head of this museum himself in the eighties, where there were more than 250 samples of armored vehicles from different countries Yes, and there are now many similar publications, and I have read something from the works of M. Baryatinsky, so I have an idea. But to be honest, I’m not very interested in this for various reasons, so maybe I’ll download it from the Internet if the opportunity arises.

    Link? Well, funny. Litmir, and so on, and so on. Surely it’s possible to “spirit” I myself pirated one book. V.O. Knows which one. Nevertheless, I have two of his books, signed by the author. Samurai and Crusaders. And, you know, if you are only interested in tanks, then this is not a reason. Besides, I consider you quite adequate. Regards, Alexey.

    It is indecent to ask such questions to anonymous people. Answering them anonymously is simply stupid. As for the whole past... I repeat once again, when you have 40 books in the USSR, the Russian Federation, England and Germany, more than 2000 articles in magazines in England, the USA, Australia, Japan, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, the USSR and the Russian Federation, then then and let's talk about what education allows.

      There is such an eccentric K. Zakoretsky (this is a pseudonym), who writes and publishes books on military history, and it is quite possible that his total circulation of books is even greater than yours. But I would not recommend taking this false historian seriously, although he can also boast of publishing his books.

    I read the comments and somehow felt sad. Many people consider themselves so smart, like they know how to look at history critically, etc., but from every hole pours a black and white view of the world. It seems that the author writes that the participants in the events and rallies had one source and there was no Tyrnet, but modern commentators show that they think the same way as those who read only the Truth. There is no difference, some have a view like from “Pravda”, others like from “Voice of America”. Black and white people. Sadness.
