The story from the liberals: another "exposure" of the plans of the Stalinist "blitzkrieg"


The closer the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory, the more creeps out from everywhere those who seek, even so, at least, but to cast a shadow on this fateful for the whole world historical event. He also strives to pour mud on him and his creators. It is expected that the liberal “party” giving birth to insinuations will be especially zealous in this dubious field.


Once again, "specialists" specializing in the "desacralization" of the Great Patriotic War noted in this matter. Data published on the Echo of Moscow radio station. The blog of one of the regular authors there, Andrei Illarionov (ex-adviser to the president of Russia, who felt like an implacable opposition), received a new "revelation": he, you see, revealed the "Soviet plan of attack on Germany!" That's right: no more, but no less. This "talented economist" is haunted, as Illarionov is called by some of his associates and associates, the laurels of the fugitive scout Rezun. Another exposer of the Stalinist “blitzkrieg” plans ...

Let us proceed, however, to a concrete analysis of the fact that this gentleman, who stubbornly clambers into questions of history, seems to consider almost the sensation of the century. He operates on a “most important document” - “Considerations for a plan for the strategic deployment of forces of the Soviet Union in case of war with Germany and its allies.” We will make a reservation right away: this paper was never signed or endorsed by anyone (which, however, Illarionov honestly admits, presumably, solely because he would be caught instantly on such a fraud), dated "presumably May 15, 1941." But maybe not May ... Or maybe not the 15th ... The authorship seems to belong to the then drug addict of defense, Marshal Semen Timoshenko and the head of the General Staff of the Red Army Georgy Zhukov. But again, due to the absence of their signatures on the document, it is problematic to say anything.

But can this really stop a man like Illarionov? In his блоге he uploads a photograph of the corner of which card with an inscription by hand: “Executor Major General Vasilevsky. 15.5.41. " Everything - the "proof" is ready. After that, our “historian”, with all seriousness, begins to assert that Zhukov personally scribbled certain places of “considerations” of the rules. Well, he was standing nearby!

As a matter of fact, Mr. Illarionov intends to make all the furore by sending his readers to that paragraph of the document, which says about the need “in no case to give initiative to the German command, to forestall the enemy in deployment and attack the German army at a time when it will be in the deployment stage and will not have time to organize the front and the interaction of the armed forces ... "That's it! Stalin, his generals and marshals taken red handed! You could say caught by the hand. You see: they didn’t prepare for defense, but intended to attack the “poor” Nazis themselves, who by that time had pulled colossal forces to our borders “with exclusively peaceful goals.”

This is the place our "hero" calls the "Soviet plan of attack on Germany". Illarionov quite seriously asserts that the army in the deployment stage is "an army preparing for an attack, but not yet starting it." Therefore, attacking it is pure aggression! Honestly, the way it is ... The case clearly smacks of either, excuse me, the clinic, or absolutely fantastic amateurism. Even assuming that preventive action plans against the Nazis were drawn up, it remains only to regret that they did not have time to put them into practice. In May 1941, the war with the Third Reich was already absolutely predetermined and inevitable. If the People’s Commissariat of Defense and the General Staff did not develop its plans, then they would be worthless. Moreover, in the context of the geopolitical situation prevailing in Europe in the 30s of the twentieth century, literally every country had plans for military action against almost all its neighbors! Such was the then reality. Often these plans lacked several weeks or even days to be realized: how, for example, the intentions of Britain and France to attack the USSR during the 1940 Winter War. Nothing, then we were our allies. Sort of…

And finally, the main thing: in the same "considerations" we are talking about the construction of new fortified areas, including in 1942. In principle, after these words alone, the question of the “aggressiveness” of Moscow’s plans in the spring of 1941 is not subject to discussion. If a grief economist trying to play war with history were at least half a gram versed in the true basics of military affairs, he would know: the desire to forestall the enemy, seize strategic initiative is the basis of military success, and not an indicator of “aggressiveness” at all. There can be no talk of any "plan of attack" as applied to the "considerations" issued by him for such. At least because the hypothetical offensive operations described in them, which the Red Army was supposed to carry out in 1941 in Europe, remained plans.

    that's why operational plans that are 70 years old and other developments of which hundreds can be painted for different occasions are secret, so that crazy civilians, God forbid, get and wave them. such plans were and will be. in any country with normal GS.

      No, they are not crazy, they are Russophobes, traitors and the "fifth column", the same as a scorpion gnawing off its tail (they probably did not like them in childhood).

      The fact of the matter is that in any normal GS there should be plans for all occasions, including a preemptive strike. And there is nothing wrong with that, on the contrary, the GSh is bad, in which there are no such plans. But to draw conclusions about aggressiveness on the basis of these plans is utter nonsense.
      In general, all these "whistleblowers" have long been time to put under article 354.1 of the Criminal Code for the rehabilitation of Nazism. We have an article, but only they are embarrassed or afraid to apply it. Under this article, our entire liberal party falls, headed by the former Minister of Culture himself (for the Mannerheim board). Under the same article, the whole administration of Rossosh can and should be planted. Yes, there are many others, but I’m unlikely to wait.
      And the closer the 75th anniversary of the Victory, the more such manure will appear in the media. Because they are not afraid of anything. And why should they be afraid if, in fact, they are supported at the very top.

                T.N. “Unsigned” considerations suddenly ceased to be secret. Is the country's defense plan still secret? 79 years have passed since the outbreak of the war, what's the secret? And why did the Red Army start acting on June 22.06 without any plan? Present to the public a plan of defense of the country, thereby knocking out all the arguments from the hands of the damned demon of glorious history. What Marshal Zakharov wrote there is absolutely not interesting. Where is the country's defense plan? Signed by the author and approved?

                  and who needs draft Drafts of Considerations?)) you can understand the essence of the plans of the General Staff - the military, but you need to know something else besides this)) And declassify them yourself - DON'T))) Otherwise, it will fall apart - but - not Rezun’s nonsense, but officially approved myths about the beginning of the war - that Stalin was to blame for everything))) The Red Army began to act precisely according to the General Staff Plan)) And it was in the General Staff’s plans that the reasons for our defeats were laid))) Well, if you don’t see the plans themselves for a long time now, study Tech who studied these plans - Zakharov and officers of the VNU GSh - "1941 - lessons and conclusions")) The plan for which they tried n to start a fight was not a PLAN of defense .. it was our counter-blitzkrieg!))

                    Clear. There are no defense plans for the country. And there wasn’t. But there were considerations. And there is. Even if not signed. It is impossible to declassify the country's defense plans drawn up 80 years ago ??)))) Then it is impossible to declassify Kutuzov’s plans for Borodino. I am not going to study the plans set forth from the words of some, even three times brilliant uncle. Well, if the Red Army acted according to these plans, then the plans themselves - with the smell of brown substance. That's when the Red Army acted according to defense plans, it had brilliant victories. Stalingrad and Kursk are examples of this. Strange, no one plans these defensive operations, with the subsequent counter-offensive, to keep it secret. They can be found and found. Not with anyone's words. And plans for the summer of the 41st year are a secret. What’s secret there? Protect this village, city, crossroads until death, or until victory. What could be secret there? But if there are several other tasks, then yes, there is something to keep secret.

                        Well, if these plans contain instructions on the Red Army’s attacks on the Wehrmacht, access to the Baltic Sea on that day, the seizure of oil fields in Romania, the occupation of Krakow, then yes, they will escalate, only not idiots, but those who will consider it plans defense of the state will look, to put it mildly, cretins. What is characteristic, I do not consider these plans to be bad and even more so criminal. I believe that back in the year 89, it was necessary to voice these plans and state - and what's wrong with that? Yes, we wanted to destroy the enemy on its territory, there is nothing shameful. And eliminate the centuries-old threat to the country from the West. But no, at first they managed it, and then they began to deny the obvious. And a lot of dumbheads with them.

It is clear that they will not close up fearing Western reaction, but it is time to invite a couple of employees to the courts for systematic slander, provocative statements, etc. There would be a desire, but you can always find a reason.

      These suckers are not capable of this. They have more than enough turbofan substance. The smell of their stench extends to the entire CIS and far abroad. And they do not touch them, not because the West will speak, but to show what kind of liquid the stinky liberda itself and their associates are. If they had not been shown and not allowed to tell them from each iron, then they would have long ruled the country and would have collapsed at the direction of Fashington. And so our people are not stupid and sees what this party of penguin fans love is worth. And they themselves try to arouse disgust for them with their behavior.

            For this, there are different types of “ministries of propaganda.” That's how Dr. Goebels had it.
            War, political struggle, the eternal problem of “where to get food?”, Inflation - all this should have remained in the past. In the totalitarian Reich, the subjects of the Führer should have felt like Christ's bosom.
            The Nazi elite earnestly believed that the average Reichsburger needed first of all home comfort and a good mood. Therefore, the Imperial Ministry of Propaganda decided to focus on entertaining radio programs. Goebbels constantly insisted on this during the meetings of the Radio Commission. As a result, the number of soap operas, concerts and sports broadcasts has steadily increased in radio broadcasts. By 1940, the share of political communications, including the Fuhrer’s, fell to an insignificant level - less than two percent of airtime.

      It’s wrong to invite to the courts, since it is only about interpreting certain events. Their deliberate hyperbolization (exaggeration) to create the necessary emotional color of events, where certain plans, protocols and other secondary documents, which are always huge in the pre-war period and which only replenished the archive, are given out as proof, so as not to replenish the ballot box. In the absence of an obvious lie, to call such people to court - you only know who to pour water into the mill. Such as Illarionov, Ekho Moskvy and the like receive funding from the funds of Khodorkovsky, Soros, various kinds of grants and direct financing from abroad. They must be deprived of this funding, confiscated funds. To channels and radio stations to give warnings and then to deprive broadcast frequencies. And then let THEY go to court and bear the burden of proof that they were wrongfully treated. The court, a case that will take years - it may even win the court and restore broadcast frequencies - to the delight of the ECHR and the sponsors. But a week later a new warning and again the deprivation of the ether - and welcome back to court. Such a process is fraught with a waste of money on the courts and a lack of output of content - sponsors usually do not like this. It is trickier to act, and to call for the conscience of such scum is tantamount to throwing beads in front of pigs, because people are paid and funded.

      This "viper" is owned by Gazprommedia and will live happily ever since it is better to listen to EM than the conventional Voice of America. Therefore, they will never close it - liberal steam must be released in a controlled manner. Venediktov goes to the Kremlin, communicates with the AP. The red line will not cross.

    Formally, Illarionov is right, the army was really deployed for active actions, it is simply silent about the root cause.
    For some reason, by default it is believed that defense is literally standing on the defensive without assuming active actions against the enemy.

        All minusers marked? And here is a direct speech from the IVS:
        "Peace policy provided peace to our country. Peace policy is a good thing. For the time being, we carried out the line of defense - until, until we rearm our army, equipped the army with modern means of struggle. And now, when we reconstructed our army , filled with equipment for modern combat, when we became strong - now we need to move from defense to offensive. When defending our country, we must act in an offensive way. From defense go to a policy of offensive action. We need to restructure . Our upbringing, our propaganda, agitation and our press in an offensive spirit of the Red Army is a modern army, and a modern army - the army's offensive. "

Any player, even in dominoes, even in chess, calculates his moves, and calculates several options. The command and the general staff also developed several options for the development of events, of course there were different options and it was naturally impossible to accept everything as a guide to action.

    One of the ANSWERS to the concentration and deployment of German troops at the borders of the USSR and nothing more. The General Staff is obliged, without emotion, to develop all kinds of options for military operations, and the leadership of the country chooses. A preemptive strike from a military point of view has a very effective and demoralizing effect, so it is not surprising that such an option existed. Moreover, no one has led the further development of this STRATEGIC DEFENSE OPTION. And only primitive formalists or "specialists" with a predetermined result can identify a preventive strike with aggression without a comprehensive examination of the situation. I am sure that even now in staff vaults and deportation centers of the most peace-loving bloc are stored at least several plans of potential databases, among which there are "preventive" ones, but in their understanding.

    Our generals were complete idiots, otherwise a catastrophe of 41 years would not have happened. In this case, they did not come up with anything new, and in these "Considerations ..." they merely repeated the plan for the strategic deployment of the tsarist army in case of war with Germany. Then it was assumed that, in view of the greater development of the railway network, the German army, after the announcement of mobilization, would quickly reach the border and prevent our deployment. To prevent this scenario, tsarist generals created border guard troops. The only task that was, after the declaration of war and mobilization, to quickly bring the number of divisions to full-time due to the call from the surrounding area, to cross the border and tie the German troops in battle, to enable the Empire to complete the general mobilization, manning new divisions and pulling them to the border. In fact, the border cover troops were “whipping boys” and nothing more. The Tsarist staff officer Egorov, who became the Chief of the General Staff, was shot dead, thank God, thoughtlessly repeated this scenario and left Shaposhnikov and Zhukov a legacy. So such a document was quite possibly considered by Stalin, but was not signed.

      German generals also did not come up with anything new. The Blitzkrieg theory is even more ancient than our 1914 plans.
      Which does not stop some from chanting the German General Staff, considering it a storehouse of military thought.
      The point is not in the plan, but in the possibility of its implementation.

      Actually, Germany had nothing to do with it, because there were cover plans in the Far East. And their development is connected with the purely economic capabilities of our country - the territory is huge and it’s too ruinous to contain a large army to repel any aggression, that’s why parts of the cover near the state border were created that allowed mobilization to begin with the outbreak of the war. And in later Soviet times, there were cover plans in all border districts, which confirms the reasonableness of such actions.
      Quote: Jurkovs
      In fact, the border cover troops were “whipping boys” and nothing more.

      This is a dubious conclusion, because the best officers were assigned to cover regiments, and exercises and trainings were conducted there more often than in other parts of the district. So they were obliged to die, but not to retreat, and it was unlikely that when they took positions on time, it was easy to knock them out. The tragedy of June 22 just began with the fact that a large number of connections did not reach the positions they intended in time, which led to defeat.

      You are either a great "theoretician" or a dreamer - even in the GSVG, where there were only deployed and manned units 100% of the state of peacetime, there were tank cover regiments. These were the most combat-ready units of the army group, which covered the summer standards for 5-10 minutes on the rise, and within half an hour after that they entered into battle with the NATO troops on the border. And this is in the presence of nuclear weapons in the group, by the way. It seems you vaguely understand why there are cover plans ....

      There is a problem in interpretation.
      According to Suvorov-Rezun, Stalin / the USSR, at first, just wanted to attack Germany, but the Germans were ahead. Further more. Stalin made the greatest combination (Hitler to power, Germany conquers Europe), and it turns out that Germany is not so guilty of the war. In fact, Germany is only the victim of cunning manipulation by the USSR (for which the USSR deservedly received from Germany). And if Germany is a victim, and the USSR is a manipulator, then the contribution to both victory and war can be reviewed.
      And please, the USSR is guilty not of wanting to attack Germany, but of provoking the entire Second World War.

    I do not really understand the problem and the "feeling" in what? Each GSh develops plans and various scenarios.

    As for the Soviet attack on Germany, Stalin himself spoke about this in a speech to the officers, pointing out, perhaps, in May 1942. Even if the Soviet strike was to happen in 1941 (as the deployment and development of the army may indicate), everyone will win. Hitler would have shot himself in the head much faster, Nazism would have fallen in 1941, the Germans would not have been able to kill so many Jews and Poles, and Victory would have cost much less blood from the Red Army. The same pluses for everyone
    So it remains rather sad that the plans were not implemented!

    But can this really stop a man like Illarionov? In his blog, he uploads a photograph of the corner of a card with a handwritten inscription: “Executor Major General Vasilevsky. 15.5.41. " Everything - the "proof" is ready.

    You are one of the few who drew attention to such details, because most people in military maps do not understand well and believe in any stupidity that is presented by false researchers, such as Illarionov. First of all, it is striking that the map is without a coordinate grid, which means it is the usual administrative, and not the General Staff. Secondly, the inscription is made obliquely, and this is a violation of the rules for processing service cards in an NPO (MO), which confirms the fake that was cooked up somewhere in a hurry. The only option is that civilians could prepare it somewhere in some people's commissariat and bring it for approval to the people's commissariat of defense, but in any case, this card cannot be an official document confirming that we have a war plan in 1941.
    By the way, now another scammer from history is discussing such a fake, who made a conclusion on the basis of an unknown German map created by someone unknown in May 1941. And on its basis, he made a stunning conclusion that our intelligence did not know about the plans of the Germans, because in the intelligence report for the month of May there is a mismatch in the numbering of German corps and armies with the data on this map.

    A penny to the General Staff, which does not develop plans for all occasions, is worthless. If a preventive strike plan did not exist, then Zhukov was a bad chief of the General Staff. Why are we shy of our history? How many plans were there for an attack on the USSR besides Barbarossa? And the Poles planned and the British. And after the Second World War, how many plans were there, starting with the "Unthinkable" plan? The US generally planned to bombard our country with nuclear bombs, even when we did not yet have nuclear weapons.
    It is time to declassify the documents of the period preceding the war, and stop shy of their own history.
    Fact - Germany attacked the USSR on June 22, 1941.
    And unrealized plans are just plans whether they were or weren’t it absolutely does not change anything.

    Be the peasants! They wanted to fuck the Germans and would have fucked if they had only done so as in 1943 on the Kursk Bulge !!!! Three-line defense, anti-tank guns, camouflaged and entrenched tanks, direct-fire anti-aircraft guns, mines, anti-aircraft guns, fire bags, anti-tank guns and then the most delicious .... attacks to the rear and flanks like under the Eagle!
    "In no case give initiative to the German command, forestall the enemy in deployment and attack the German army at a time when it will be in the deployment stage and will not have time to organize the front and cooperation of the armed forces ..."

    This is for later !!! Look at the map of 1941! Dream! You are in and not in confession !! Draw the arrows of our attacks on the rear of the Germans! How could we have them! Yum Yum Yum! soldier

    The author calm down - Illarionov, of course, is also a miracle - an evil anti-Soviet and Russophobe, but the "plan of May 15" is a real document composed by Zhukov and Vasilievsky, which they began to write at the end of April, and even under this plan they even prepared directives in the okrugs about deployment of troops under it! And it is about the FIRST ATTACK and there is nothing to lament here that it was not realized! Zhukov himself later admitted - thank God Stalin did not fall for THIS crazy plan !! Realize it and we would be defeated by the Germans for sure!

    I would like to mention just such a trifle. Until September 1, 1939, the USSR could not attack Germany in any way because of the existence of a country like Poland between the USSR and Germany.
    However, even after the Polish campaign ended, the USSR could not attack Germany again. He could attack the Wehrmacht, which illegally occupied Poland. Formally, this would be a determination to liberate Poland. What happened in the 1944th year.

    The eternal misfortune of the last two centuries, the Russian state is a soft attitude towards the so-called liberals. Although the word liberal is rather abusive in the people. My thoughts on this matter are unambiguous, I have to accept an article in the Criminal Code as a distortion of history.

    Well, if these plans contain instructions on the Red Army’s attacks on the Wehrmacht, access to the Baltic Sea on that day, the seizure of oil fields in Romania, the occupation of Krakow, then yes, they will escalate, only not idiots, but those who will consider it plans defense of the state will look, to put it mildly, cretins. What is characteristic, I do not consider these plans to be bad and even more so criminal.

And eliminate the centuries-old threat to the country from the West. But no, at first they managed it, and then they began to deny the obvious. And a lot of dumbheads with them.

    you didn’t understand - the plans of the General Staff were not the first to strike))) although such plans were also in the minds of some strategists)))
