Soviet newspapers on the final stage of the Soviet-Finnish war


Appearance of a file with the numbers of the newspaper Pravda for 1940. Alas, more and more often you come across the fact that old paper materials become worthless


"Swear and give false testimony, but do not divulge secrets."
One of the commandments of the Albigenses


History in documents. Материал “Pravda newspaper about the Soviet-Finnish war of 1939-1940” we ended up with an excerpt from the newspaper Pravda, which wrote: “Belofinns,” writes the Swedish newspaper “Nu Dag” ... ”Once again, we note that the biggest enemies of the USSR inside the country were his own journalists, who officially worked for wages. But it is, for a warm-up. And then we will talk about the fact that the Pravda newspaper of 1939, even outwardly, for some reason, was very different from the 1940 newspaper. Yes, the glories to Comrade Stalin have been preserved, but there have been fewer of them. There are only one large portraits of him, next to Lenin and the one in the schedule, but there are many photographs of Marshal Tymoshenko. There are also much less photographic materials than in 1939, even less than in our Penza newspaper Stalin's Banner. The cartoons disappeared, although many drawn maps appeared with the course of hostilities on the Western Front. There were more articles on the military topic, but the word "pest" from the pages completely disappeared. Either they were all caught, or those that remained, thought better of it and stopped harming.


Both Pravda and the Stalin's Banner regularly published materials that workers from various Scandinavian countries did not want to help ... the “Finnish White Guards”. It would be very interesting to pick up the newspapers mentioned here and check. But ... personally, I don’t have such an opportunity. And here's what is interesting, how did the Danish worker find out that the war is being fought at the direction of the British imperialists? Unfortunately, in the Penza State Archive, the numbers of the Pravda newspaper for 1940 have only been preserved since April, and then in very poor condition. But fortunately, then the regional newspapers reprinted all the main word for word news from Pravda, so that the reports from the front and the main materials on the conflict between the USSR and Finland are identical to the "Pravdist" materials



Now, if ... then, of course!


Interestingly, in the Penza newspaper "Stalin's banner" at this time such "live" materials began to appear. But there was nothing of the kind in Pravda, but people probably wanted stories about the exploits and glorious victories of the soldiers and commanders of the Red Army


Communications from the front were usually rather mean.


Much detail was given to the atrocities of the Belofin authorities against their own citizens.


Another lively tale of hostilities against Finland


There has been a clear success!


On this summary, the most revealing is the corner on the right. Archive workers glued hundreds of sheets of old newspapers with neatly transparent paper, so it was possible to work with them. But digitizing all the local newspapers today is simply impossible


The war was drawing to a close


And now our troops took Vyborg!


The announcement of the signing of a peace treaty in the Stalin Banner was published on March 14


And here is how the troop withdrawal was to be carried out


And then all the inhabitants of various countries began to joyfully express their satisfaction with the end of the war. And many Swedes never left the radios tuned to the Moscow wave.


A constructive dialogue has begun!


Well, of course, without the workers of the plywood factory from Nizhny Lomov, the same thing could not have done. Here is their approval of the policies of the Lenin-Stalin party and the obligation to fulfill the plan ahead of schedule. “I will work even harder!” Said the Boxer and arranged with the Rooster to wake him up an hour earlier (J. Orwell. Animal Farm)

Nomination of candidates has begun in the Karelian-Finnish SSR ...


Pravda talked about the course of the election campaign in the Karelian-Finnish SSR and the candidates


Trade agreement

Well, now let's see the photos ...


Caricature in the "Stalin Banner"


Another "approvals"


But such photos in Pravda could be published much more often. They would look good on both sides of the border and inspire confidence in friends and ... fear to enemies!


Marshal Tymoshenko personally oversees firing by grenade launchers


And talking to the machine gunner ...


And with sniper Hanin


In 1939, Pravda most often had a trio: Voroshilov, Budyonny, Stalin. In 1940, Budyonny disappeared from the photographs and Molotov took his place


Stalin and Molotov confer with the wives of the command staff. True, they look in different directions

[Center]

In the newspaper appeared photos of Soviet military designers who became the heroes of Socialist Labor
What is especially surprising when viewing two newspapers at once: local and central? Very sparing coverage of events at the front. Much more attention is paid to the protesting workers of England and Denmark than to our fighters and commanders, who have borne the brunt of this war on their shoulders. It is clear that it was not necessary to write about frozen people and abandoned equipment, but you can express everything with words. And were there really few then examples of courage and heroism? After all, portraits of those awarded with orders and the title of Hero were placed by Pravda regularly. Well, why not talk about them, not take an interview?

Again, no one demanded to write the truth in it, it was necessary to write “as it should”, and even the interviewee would have correctly understood this then. But such a powerful educational moment at that time was completely missed. After reading, there remains a feeling of some dissatisfaction, understatement, and this simply should not be the case with the masses.

And this is not a discovery of today and not a modern afterlife. Even Lenin wrote about this in the work “What to do,” but the journalists and those who directed them at that time simply could not help reading it and not taking notes. But somewhere, something, apparently, did not grow together.

        A lot has changed! Then about internal affairs: problems and achievements were written at times, and even tens of times more! By the way, besides all of the things you have listed, it’s worth remembering about the salt of the Russian land: the stars (cinema and sports!)))!

    27. LETTER OF THE Plenipotentiary Representative of the USSR to the UK I.MAYSKIY to the People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs of the USSR V.Molotov
    Sent to Comrade Molotov, Comrade Potemkin
    26th of January 1940
    Dear Vyacheslav Mikhailovich, about a month and a half have passed since the day of my last letter devoted to Soviet-English relations, and I consider it timely to touch on the same issue again now. The acute campaign of anti-Soviet rabies, in the context of which I wrote my past letter, may be considered asleep by now (although, of course, the press continues to pour a certain amount of dirt on us every day). However, as I telegraphed to you at the end of December, the general temperature of Soviet-English relations sharply falls not only compared to what it was before the war, but also compared to what was observed in October - November last year ( between Poland and Finland) In statistical terms, I would say that if the temperature of May – June 1939 was taken as 100, then the temperature of October – November was 50, and the temperature today hardly exceeds 30. In accordance with this, the atmosphere surrounding the Embassy wears icy character and emptiness all around him growing larger. If it were not for my old personal ties, accumulated during the years of "friendly" relations between the USSR and England, ties that give me the opportunity even now to learn something about the events that are happening, our position here would be very difficult ...

    17. IN THE NARKOMINDEL USSR
    15th of January 1940

    ... comrade Kollontai submitted a statement on behalf of the Soviet government to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden, Gunther. The statement said, “Throughout the month of December, circles and press hostile to the Soviet Union, led by the Social-Democrat newspaper close to the government, waged an unacceptable campaign against the Soviet Union, which could only be explained if Sweden had been in a state of war with the USSR or preparing for war with the USSR. " The statement of the plenipotentiary further noted that direct calls for war against the Soviet Union and demands for armed intervention by Sweden in the war on the side of the Ryuti-Tanner government against the USSR find their place in the Swedish press. This campaign, designed to cause complications between the USSR and Sweden, does not meet with opposition from the Swedish government. Moreover, some officials openly participate in organizing military assistance to the Ryti-Tyner government. By December 7, with the patronage of the Swedish authorities, up to 47 recruitment offices were opened in several cities in Sweden. The number of “volunteers” recruited by these bureaus amounts to thousands of people. According to some data relating to December 28, up to 10 thousand such “volunteers” arrived in Sweden from Finland. After that it was reported that 2 corps of “volunteers” left Finland from southern and central Sweden. The general command over them was taken by the Swedish general Ernst Linder.

    36. TASS MESSAGE
    5 February 1940 g
    On February 5, at 9 a.m., up to 30 people dressed in civilian clothes burst into the premises of the USSR trade mission in Paris. The officer on duty at the trade mission was told that all the persons had arrived to conduct a search by oral order of the police prefect. Turning off all the telephones, the police agents entered the office and the apartment of the YI of the trade representative of Evstratov, where they started a search, despite his protests. The search in the trade mission was accompanied by the seizure of documents and hacking of cabinets and safes. Trade representatives who arrived at the service were detained and transported to their apartments under police protection, where a search was also instituted. At the same time, the same search was carried out on the premises of Intourist and the former Soviet school in Paris. After that, the detained employees were released.
    Immediately upon notification of the search, the envoy of the USSR in Paris, Surits sent 2 employees to the trade mission demanding to immediately clean the premises and return the seized documents. After the police refused to satisfy Surica’s demands at 17 p.m. of the same date, the French government protested against the actions of the police authorities, insisting on the termination of the search and on the return of all seized documents to the trade mission.

    870. INFORMATION OF THE Plenipotentiary Representative of the USSR in NORWAY, V.A. PLOTNIKOV, TO THE DEPUTY PEOPLE'S COMMISSIONER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE USSR S.ALOZOVSKY
    17th of December 1939
    Secretly
    On the Finnish question, the bourgeois Norwegian press takes a hostile attitude towards the USSR and the Kuusinen government, while not hiding its sympathy for the White Finns.
    A particularly hostile tone of the government officialdom is “Arbeiderbladet”, where an expression of an offensive character is often found. According to press reports, the “beautiful” Finnish army valiantly “reflects” the onslaught of the enemy, which is supposedly low militarily. Fables are spreading about the tankmen sitting on the castle, chained inside the tanks by chains for their legs, and the Red Army men, naked and bloated, fighting without the use of supposedly elementary military equipment. Our operational reports are not printed by newspapers.
    Against this background, the objective coverage of the Union’s fundamental positions and the actual state of the combat sites by the Arbeideren communist body literally caused a howl from the bourgeois press and a demand for the government to close this “Moscow mail box”.

    867. LETTER OF THE TEMPORARY ATTORNEY IN THE CASES OF THE USSR IN THE DANISH OF I.F. VLASOV TO THE PEOPLE'S COMMISSAR FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE USSR V.MOLOTOV
    16th of December 1939
    Secretly
    For the past 3-4 weeks, the Danish bourgeois press has mainly occupied its readers with the Finnish question, mainly covering the topic of “sympathy for the northern brothers” and “aggression of the Soviet Union”, etc. Starting from the second half of November, articles by leading government newspapers (“Social Democrat ”And“ Politiken ”) were even of the nature of the obvious incitement of white Finns and the seduction of“ support ”in their struggle against the USSR. So, for example, “Socialdemocrat” wrote that “Finland is fighting for the neutrality of the whole North”, and called on “to help Finland not only morally, but also financially.” ... In parallel with this "ideological" support, various fees began to be held to help Finland. So, for example, the Danish Red Cross has collected about 800 thousand dates to date. Crowns "for the population of Finland". Drugs are being procured. Individual reactionary organizations are encouraged to collect fruits, meat and other products for Finland. Denmark does not lag behind other Scandinavian countries in relation to "volunteers". Newspapers have so far reported only about “recording in the Finnish mission” (12. KP allegedly 450 people have signed up), but it is possible that some of these “volunteers” could go to Finland.

    American workers are deceived by the bourgeoisie.

    859. LETTER OF THE ADVISOR TO THE Plenipotentiary Representative of the USSR in the USA, A. A. GROMYKO, PEOPLE'S COMMISSIONER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE USSR V. MOLOTOV
    13th of December 1939
    Secretly
    ... In this letter I want to briefly outline the political situation that has developed in the United States so far in connection with European events, and especially in connection with the events in Finland. At this time, we can directly say that the American bourgeoisie and the American government, headed by President Roosevelt, use a variety of means with very great perseverance in order to put together a united front of world reaction directed against the USSR. In this direction, reactionary circles in the USA are working with furious energy.
    .... What is the attitude of the US ruling circles and the Roosevelt government to the USSR now? Currently, American financial capital hates us. He harbors animal hatred towards the USSR. ... Moreover, the matter is not limited only to the field of diplomatic events, the wild persecution of the USSR and slander. Today, i.e. On December 11, it became known that an export-import bank led by the government, with the approval of Roosevelt, granted Finland a loan of $ 10 million ... Interruption of Soviet-Finnish negotiations, further unfolding of events in Finland and the emergence of slanderous flows in the press in the press led to the fact that separate voices began to be heard about the need to break off diplomatic relations with the USSR.
    ... I must say bluntly that Roosevelt, like the American bourgeoisie as a whole, has so far been able to mislead the majority of the American people regarding the actual nature of the foreign policy of the Roosevelt government. Most people believe that the government is indeed taking action against the arsonists. ... Arshin headlines, a chronicle in a movie, a light show of the latest news on the streets of New York - all this is filled with slander in relation to the USSR, all this is on the heels of pursuing the American. There is no doubt that the truth will reach the whole American people. For this, of course, time is needed. I myself observed with what interest and love Americans watch Soviet films (Shchors and the chronicle of the life of the Red Army), with what greed they catch every word from the screen. Although nearby in the best cinema in New York (Radio City) is anti-Soviet filth - the picture "Ninochka."

    11th of December 1939
    Secretly
    Dear Vyacheslav Mikhailovich!
    Allow me to note and bring to your attention several points that have taken place in Romania recently.
    ... The events of recent days and the events of the Soviet Union in Finland have a sensitive effect on Romania. Under the influence of British propaganda, which has intensified since the Soviet troops entered Finland, local government circles showed some concern and their dissatisfaction with the policies of the Soviet Union on the Finnish issue was noticeable. This situation was also reflected in the local press, which places full pages of messages from the agencies of Havas, Stephanie, Reuters, etc., directed against the USSR, and TASS tries to place messages somewhere on the last page, but not in full and in small print. The Kurentul newspaper, headed by the well-known pro-Italian bribe-taker Panfil Sheikaru, has been making slanderous articles about the USSR for several days now and is trying to prove the aggressive measures of the Soviet Union.
    Government circles have recently been visibly fearful of the fate of Bessarabia. They believe that after Finland their turn will come ...

    22th of December 1939
    Ow. top secret
    To characterize today's moods and attitude towards the USSR, Sun Fo, I repeat, Sun Fo, report: according to accurate data, he forbade the holding of the so-called KSKO cup of tea dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Comrade Stalin, the program of which had been worked out even before the arrival of Chongqing Sun Fo. According to the plan proposed by the CSCO, on this cup of tea with welcoming speeches and a brief report on the activities of Comrade Stalin was supposed to speak Shao Lizzy and Feng Yuxiang. The Chinese did not want to have this cup of tea after the invitations had already been sent. We had to intervene in this matter and prove the absurdity of such an act. Only one Shao Lizzy made a five-minute speechless speech. Sun Fo - as the chairman of this society - did not even deign to come to this reception.

      By this time, the Communist Party of China, headed by Mao Zedong, which the USSR supported, was already strong in China. So it is not surprising that Sun Fo turned his nose.

        8 January 1940 g
        ... Ambassador: It is known that the Soviet Union constantly helped China from the very beginning of the resistance war. The Soviet Union continues to provide this assistance to this day ...
        Comrade Molotov: I am very sorry about your departure, I want the future ambassador to work as well as you. As for our relationship with China, so far we have managed to resolve all issues favorably; I think that we will succeed in the future. However, we do not quite understand the position of China on the exclusion of the USSR from the League of Nations. As you know, it was enough for one of the members to raise a hand against exclusion, as this decision would not have taken place. But China abstained from the vote, and the USSR was expelled. We are not very worried about the exception, but the behavior of China is not clear.
        Ambassador: I explain this by saying that Wellington Ku, being a representative of the old diplomatic school, does not always coordinate with the instructions of the current Chinese government.

      Sun Fo - as chairman of this society
      what kind of society? Maybe a White-Chinese-White-Finnish friendship? laughing He turns out to be a Chiang Kai-shek, though with claims.

        The commentator for some reason omitted information about who Sun Fo was.


        Sun Fo or Sun Ke (October 21, 1891 - July 13, 1973) - politician of the Republic of China. Known for being the son of Sun Yat-sen and his first wife, Lu Muzhen, which allowed him to demonstrate disagreement with Chiang Kai-shek on a number of fundamental issues (in particular, maintain an alliance with the Chinese Communist Party).

        He turns out to be a Chiang Kai-shek, though with claims.


        Does Chan Kashi bother you? In vain. Comrade Stalin in 1939 he did not bother.

        698. RECORDING TALKS OF THE Plenipotentiary Representative of the USSR in China, A. S. Panyushkin with the Commander-in-Chief of the Chinese Army, Head of the Kuomintang Chiang Kai-shek
        18th of October 1939
        Secretly
        Plenipotentiary: I have received a message from my government that, meeting the request of the Chinese government, it agrees to build an aircraft factory in Urumqi. The plant will have to function as a mixed Soviet-Chinese enterprise with an independent balance sheet. The Soviet side invests 50% of the capital, the central government of China - 25%, the government of Xinjiang - 25%. The plant will assemble 300 fighters per year. When accepting this proposal, please inform the person to whom the Chinese government instructs the signing of the relevant agreement in Moscow.
        CHAN KAISHI: Will the plant produce 300 fighters a year? The release of bombers is not provided?
        Plenipotentiary: Yes.
        CHAN KAISHI: I will refer this matter to the Executive Yuan, which will deal with it in its entirety.
        Plenipotentiary: What is the position of the front?
        CHAN KAISHI: Very good and peppy.
        Plenipotentiary: According to the Chinese press, have the last two Chinese air raids on Hankou yielded very good results?
        CHAN KAISHI: That is absolutely correct. In this matter, Soviet volunteers greatly helped. Three of them died during operations, and one here in Chongqing. We admire their heroism and at the same time mourn their loss. We intend to erect a monument to them.
        Plenipotentiary: How does the chief adviser Volgin help?
        CHAN KAISHI: Very good and very sincere. I am very satisfied.
        Plenipotentiary: During the first meeting with you, he stated that he would give all his strength to help China.
        CHAN KAISHI: Thank you very much.

          Yes, not really, Churchill was also in the ITF’s allies, but he just didn’t become a friend of the USSR.

            Churchill was also in the ITF’s allies, but he, just like Chiang Kai-shek, did not become another USSR.


            This is because he was too straightforward.

            The eldest son of Chiang Kai-shek, Jiang Jingo, graduated from the Chinese Communist University of Workers in Moscow in Moscow, while living in the family of Anna Ilyinichna Ulyanova (the same one), managed to ride Soviet tanks and work on the Uralmash.



            Junior - Jiang Weigo, Comrade Chan sent to the Munich Military Academy, and later to the alpine shooters with the right to wear the edelweiss patch.
            As a tank commander, he “liberated” Poland (from that side).


            We Europeans still have to learn and learn flexibility from the Chinese comrades. wink

              Well I would have quotes to freed would attach. Our campaign was somehow controversial, and their war was never liberating.

              And then they are surprised that the civil war is "fratricidal." Fuck so much flexibility! Mao would not approve!

          It is well known that Wikipedia has a habit of tricking, but you have a habit of not speaking.

          The Communist Party of China and the Red Army of China at that time gained strength, the Chinese Soviet Republic was even declared, which Chiang Kai-shek, along with Sun Fo, squeezed out of its areas.

          But while there was a war of liberation against Japan, the Soviet leadership recommended that the Chinese Communists support the Kuomintang. After the victory of the Red Army of China in the civil war, Sun Fo fled to Hong Kong, where he became prime minister. So in "friendly Chinese comrades" you can’t write it down.

    Enough already? Everyone knows so well how and at the expense of whom the Finnish army suddenly significantly increased in size and capabilities. Poor Finns, let us pity the unfortunate people, who only thanks to the Bolsheviks gained their independence and immediately showed their appetites in 1918-1921 in aggressive campaigns to the east. Yes, they should pray for Stalin that they did not begin the FSSR for "merits" in the blockade of Leningrad.

      Do not tell tales; the maximum that occurs is a conversation about 12000 volunteers. And these are volunteers !!

        And now, dear sir, go to your internet and find out the size of the Finnish Armed Forces before the war and be surprised at the fact that the “volunteers” increased the Finnish troops by more than a third. Look there for information on the delivered planes, guns, and so on and so forth. Only one aircraft they caught up to 200 pieces. This is more than they had before their war.

    Territorial decisions in Karelia and on Rybachy are quite understandable. It is not clear why Salla was needed. Although any territory will not be superfluous, since so many lives have been paid for it.

    Article rubbish. But a positive trend is being seen - our author, a teacher-copy from the History of the CPSU, Shpakovsky is getting smaller: instead of biting, he can only spit.

    The author of the article tempered his anti-Soviet ardor; one can already consider the article neutral, to a first approximation. And where there is neutrality and objectivity nearby. But this is still fun to read: Once again, we note that the biggest enemies of the USSR inside the country were his own journalists, who officially worked for wages No less enemies of the USSR were post-perestroika historians and propagandists of the CPSU.

    On photo "Marshal Tymoshenko personally oversees the firing of grenade launchers" neither a grenade nor a grenade launcher can be seen (a fighter has a bayonet with a bayonet, so there is no mortar), but a 50 mm mortar is visible (most likely 38 years), possibly because 50 mm mortars were adopted including to replace a gun grenade launcher Dyakonova. So the specialty "grenade launcher" remained, but the grenade launchers did not.

    What is the article about? That there was propaganda in the USSR? Well, well, who would have thought! Propaganda was, is and will be in all countries regardless of the state structure and forms of government.
    In the modern Russian Federation, propaganda is no less, moreover, it is more stupid than under the USSR. Either the propagandists are stupid, or the consumers of propaganda, or both of these.
    And the Great Wise Putin, with his Brilliant Mnogohodovochki, Stands-S-Kolen and diving in the hang-glider to the Siberian Cranes for amphora is remembered much more often than remembered Stalin. From each iron, Putin is solid from morning to night and from night to morning. And these people are rubbing us for the cult of personality?

    In order to love the USSR you need to live in modern Russia. Because from abroad such lovers seem inadequate loonies. Apparently, propaganda still works, but only for its own consumption.

      To love the USSR, one must either live at that time or gain access to objective information. Well, what did you judge about the USSR abroad by your own propaganda and American films, it never occurred to you?

    What is there to argue, the press is the press, no matter who it is. Especially if it is state-owned, as it was written in Pravda: ... body under the Central Committee of the CPSU. And what do you want to write there? Or, for example, Izvestia: Ajubey, being the editor-in-chief, seriously wrote that Nikita was pounding his shoe on the UN rostrum under the nose of an American representative, and the shoe itself was directed toward the Israeli. OK, right? Those who lived at that time and read newspapers should remember this. The whole country was dying of laughter. laughing
