80 years ago, on March 12, 1940, the Moscow Peace Treaty was signed, which ended the Soviet-Finnish War of 1939–1940. Russia returned part of Karelia and Vyborg, lost as a result of the collapse of the Russian Empire. Stalin decided to strengthen the defense of the northern capital - Leningrad.

Moscow's attempts to stop the war with Finland


Throughout the Winter War, Moscow made efforts to reason Helsinki and resolve the conflict peacefully. The Stalinist government reacted positively to the first peaceful probe launched by the Finnish government through the writer H. Vuolioki. On January 8, 1940, she had a conversation with the Soviet Plenipotentiary in Stockholm, A. M. Kollontai, about the beginning of peace negotiations with a view to resolving the Soviet-Finnish conflict.

Moscow accepted Sweden’s offer, expressing a desire to accept the role of mediator in order to facilitate an unofficial Soviet-Finnish exchange of views on the peace agreement. On January 29, 1940, a statement was sent to the Swedish Foreign Minister H.E. Gunther, stating that the Soviet Union, in principle, does not object to concluding peace with Helsinki, but wants to know what concessions the Finns are ready to begin.

However, unofficial Soviet-Finnish contacts were complicated by the policies of England and France. Western democracies at this time did everything to drag out the Soviet-Finnish war. London and Paris decided to attack the USSR (How the West was preparing a "crusade" against the USSR) Finland was actively supplied weapons and ammunition. Finns also supplied arms and ammunition to the United States. The Americans helped Helsinki and financially, providing a loan for the purchase of weapons. In Scandinavia, the Anglo-French expeditionary forces were preparing to land for assistance from the Finnish army. Also, Westerners were preparing an attack on the USSR in the Caucasus (a blow to the oil fields). On the southern flank, the West planned to draw Turkey into the war with the USSR.

In addition, the Finnish army has not yet been defeated. The war seemed to drag out. In these conditions, Helsinki was in no hurry with the start of peace talks. On the contrary, the Finns were looking for an opportunity to continue the war. Finnish Foreign Minister Tanner visited Stockholm three times in February 1940 and asked Sweden to send 30 volunteers for help. body. Sweden has already provided Finland with all kinds of military assistance, and supplied arms and ammunition. It did not stop thousands of volunteers from fighting on the side of Finland. The issue of the passage of the Anglo-French troops through Sweden to Finland was also decided. Therefore, the Finnish government of Ryuti took time and invited Moscow to communicate the Soviet conditions of the world.

Moscow perfectly understood the game of Helsinki. The Soviet side again took the initiative and communicated its peaceful conditions through Kollontai on February 23, 1940. At the same time, Moscow turned to the British government with a request to transfer these conditions to the Finns and take on the role of mediator in the establishment of Soviet-Finnish negotiations. The Soviet government thus tried to neutralize the British efforts to prolong the war. On February 24, London refused to take on the role of mediator.

Peace talks


Meanwhile, the situation on the Soviet-Finnish front has fundamentally changed. The Red Army in February 1940 broke through the main strip of the Mannerheim Line. The Finnish army was defeated and could no longer offer serious resistance. On March 4, the Commander-in-Chief of the Finnish Army Mannerheim reported to the government that the troops in the Karelian direction were in a critical situation. Helsinki, deprived of the opportunity to continue to drag out the war and wait for help from England and France, expressed his readiness to enter into peace talks.

The government of Ryti informed Kollontai that, in principle, it accepts the conditions of the USSR, considering them as the basis for negotiations. However, under pressure from London and Paris, the Finnish government instead of sending a delegation to Moscow for negotiations on March 4 asked Moscow to clarify the passage of the new Soviet-Finnish border and the amount of compensation that Finland could receive from the USSR for the ceded territories. On March 6, the Soviet government again invited Helsinki to send a delegation for peace talks. This time, Finland agreed and sent a delegation led by Ryti. The first official meeting of the Soviet and Finnish delegations on the conclusion of a peace treaty was held on March 7, 1940. After listening to Soviet proposals, the Finnish side asked for time to consult with Helsinki.

Meanwhile, the West again made clear to Helsinki that it was ready to support Finland. The head of the British government, Chamberlain, speaking in parliament, said that England and France would continue to support Finland. London and Paris reminded Helsinki that if Helsinki wished, the Anglo-French expeditionary forces would be immediately dispatched, Norway and Sweden would not be asked again. However, the problem was that the Finns could no longer conduct military operations. The martial law of Finland demanded immediate peace.

Vyborg is ours


The negotiations ended on March 12, 1940 with the conclusion of a peace treaty between the USSR and Finland. It was signed by the Chairman of the Government (SNK) Vyacheslav Molotov from the Soviet state, Andrei Zhdanov, member of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, and Alexander Vasilevsky, representative of the General Staff. The agreement was signed by Finland: Prime Minister Risto Ryti, Minister Juho Paasikivi, General Headquarters Karl Walden, Member of the Foreign Policy Committee of the Parliament V. Vojonmaa.

According to the Moscow Treaty, the Karelian Isthmus with Vyborg and Vyborg Bay passed to the Soviet Union; a number of islands in the Gulf of Finland; the western and northern shores of Lake Ladoga with the cities of Kexholm, Sortavala, Suoyarvi, as a result, the entire lake was completely within the borders of the USSR; part of the Finnish territory with the city of Kuolajärvi, part of the Rybachy and Sredny peninsulas. Moscow leased part of the Hanko Peninsula (Gangut) with adjoining islands for a period of 30 years (annual rent was 8 million marks) to create a naval base on it that protects the entrance to the Gulf of Finland. Finland pledged not to contain armed vessels with a displacement of more than 400 tons in the Barents Sea and to have no more than 15 armed vessels there for defense. The Finns were forbidden to have a submarine fleet and a military in the North Aviation. Also, Finland could not create military and naval bases and other military installations in the North. Both parties undertook to refrain from attacking each other, not to enter into alliances and not to join coalitions directed against one of the contracting parties. True, the Finns soon violated this point, becoming allies of Nazi Germany.

In the economic part of the Soviet Russia agreement, the right of free transit through the Petsamo region (Pechenga) to Norway and vice versa was granted. At the same time, freights were exempted from customs control and were not taxed. Soviet citizens and planes had the right of free passage and passage through Petsamo to Norway. Finland granted the Soviet side the right to transit goods to Sweden. In order to create the shortest railway route for transit from Russia to Sweden, Moscow and Helsinki pledged to build a part of the railway, each on its own territory, to connect the Soviet city of Kandalaksha with the Finnish city of Kemijärvi. They planned to build the road in 1940.

Additionally, on October 11, 1940, an agreement on the Åland Islands was signed between the USSR and Finland in Moscow. The Finnish side undertook to demilitarize the Åland Islands, not to build fortifications there and not to provide them for the military forces of other countries. Moscow received the right to maintain its consulate on the Åland Islands to verify compliance with the agreement.

Thus, the Stalinist government, in anticipation of the war with the Reich, decided to increase the defense capability of Leningrad, the second capital of the USSR, the country's largest industrial and cultural center. It is possible that it was the transfer of the border from Leningrad that saved the city from its capture by the Nazis and Finns during the Great Patriotic War. Moscow returned the lands of Karelia and Vyborg, which belonged to the Russian Empire and transferred to the Grand Duchy of Finland, when it was part of the Russian state. The Soviet Union secured the only railway to Murmansk. The Gulf of Finland was actually turning into the inland sea of ​​our state.

The war showed Stalin the real state of affairs in the army and aviation, their readiness for military operations with a serious enemy. The armed forces, despite all the successes in improving the country's defense capabilities in recent years, were still “raw”. It took a lot of work on the bugs.

The victory in the war with Finland strengthened the position of the USSR in Eastern Europe. Small border states, previously hostile to the USSR, were forced to moderate their ambitions and make concessions. So, in the summer of 1940, Russia without war returned to its Baltic countries - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Also in the summer of 1940, Moscow without war returned Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina to the USSR. Romania had to give in.

    At Khalkhin-Gol our guys gave the Japanese strong teeth, so they didn’t really look in our direction, but in Finland, at the initial stage, cap-hacking "happened", and it came out very sideways.

      Vyborg is ours. Moscow treaty that saved Leningrad

      In general, the significance of the “Winter War”, the influence of its results on the further course of the Great Patriotic War, which led to the Victory, is greatly underestimated.

      At different times, this war was either underestimated or hushed up, then urged it to be ashamed and sprinkle ash on its heads ...

      But what everyone should understand without exception, that we MUST bow our heads to the memory of the heroes.

          And there can be no talk of "negative impact", the war achieved the goals set by the leadership of the USSR — it secured Leningrad, made its capture “impossible”, impossible + Murmansk Railway.

          Need to talk about lessons war, which showed the limited ability of the Red Army to maintain a database in modern conditions.

            And conclusions were drawn. But until the fateful morning of 22.06.1941 there was very little time left ...
            Namely, but if the victory over Finland were more convincing, it is possible that the USSR would have had an extra peaceful year.

              “I met the news of the truce at the hospital in Cherepovets. They danced for joy, ”the veteran recalls. - The Finnish war was completely useless; even our country was expelled from the League of Nations ... This war was wrong, unjust. Therefore, now everyone is silent, no one talks about it. We laid there 140 thousand soldiers, 40 thousand were injured. Especially on the Karelian Isthmus. Two divisions were surrounded, ours did not leave. Everything new - tanks, artillery - everything was abandoned! Thousands of people died! The Finns legally fought, defended their territory, their homeland. We did not have any hatred towards them. It's my personal opinion. And why did we go there? Why this war was needed, I don’t know. ”
              This is the opinion of Colonel Yuri Vladimirovich Tochigin, who will be 5 years old on July 99. Which was a young lieutenant at the front in late 1939 in the 44th Infantry Division. Participated in the defense of Kiev, Moscow and Tula. Now lives in St. Petersburg.
              But what does the opinion of a man sitting out at -40 in the snow near Suomussalmi and coming out of the encirclement with fights mean compared to the opinion of the brave soldiers of the couch front

                Let us now rely on the opinion of one of the veterans of that war, this is his personal opinion. Let us support those who call for the blockade of Leningrad to be meaningless and the city to be surrendered, thereby saving the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. So it is possible to surrender and sell all of Russia, hiding behind various "humane goals." And not for this former lieutenant strategist to judge the correctness and justice of that Winter War.

      could Stalin occupy ALL of Finland? Yes, he could. But for some reason, he was satisfied with several small areas, which was one of the reasons for the siege of Leningrad. Stalin needed to take Finland as a whole or, against the backdrop of the German conquests of all of Europe, it would not look like a flagrant aggression, especially since Finland - this is RI province. But we wouldn’t get a hostile state near the borders of the USSR. Or at least move the border away from Leningrad on the verge of a big war.
      In general, all these Leninist national suburbs and self-determination, up to secession, are, as we see, not just a mistake, but worse, all the national republics of the Republic of Ingushetia and the USSR are now enemies of Russia, so the policy of creating “equal” republics is not even Lenin’s fallacy, but what then a larger, programmed policy for the collapse of Great Russia.

        You're not right. The fact is that when Finland was annexed to Russia, the Finns were still a nation, but with the development of capitalism in the Russian Empire they turned into a nation and they gained a national awareness, the carrier of which was the Finnish bourgeoisie, which defended its markets and Finland could be annexed only if the Finnish Red Guard won. In the USSR, only those suburbs were united where Soviet power was established, the power of the proletariat, to which foreign prejudices are alien.

          you don’t just need to quote Lenin. And when did the USSR fall apart in Ukraine and in Kyrgyzstan say, who won? Yes, no one. It was just that they gave the Russian lands to the nationalists and that’s all, although they could not have given it up and no one would have rocked it. So in Finland, and in Poland too at that time, the authorities were Russians and the police were also Russian, no nationalists would could take power if they did not give it to them.
          And who gave? But this is the most interesting. Then he gave Lenin with his Jewish party, and in 80-90 who? Gorbachev with Yakovlev and Borka with Kravchuk. The rest did not want so much power. Here they need to figure out who they are and where they got such thoughts from.
          As for "national consciousness." This philosophical category needs to be expanded and directed, if left to chance, then nationalism will really grow, but it must be prohibited, and not supported, and there will be no "national consciousness."

            V.I. Lenin is just right, and with your answer you showed your complete ignorance in this matter. The collapse of the Russian Empire began after the February Revolution of 1917, everywhere on the outskirts came to power the national bourgeoisie, which was closely within the framework of monarchical Russia and it destroyed it. IN AND. Understanding Lenin. that it’s impossible to break peoples through the knee, he united these suburbs into a voluntary Soviet Union. This was possible only with the presence of Soviet power on the outskirts and in Russia. In 1991, the newly revived bourgeoisie destroyed the Soviet Union, the reasons are the same as in 1917.

              Such grammarians here do not know anything, but persist in ignorance. In essence, Lenin created Finland and Poland, which became hostile to the USSR.

    It is possible that it was the transfer of the border from Leningrad that saved the city from its capture by the Nazis and Finns during the Great Patriotic War

    Here I completely agree, it was these kilometers that were not enough for the Nazis ..
    The Soviet Union secured the only railway to Murmansk.

    How many payloads will be delivered through it later ... I consider the results of the war to be positive for our country.

                  In our occupied Finnish territories (Old Finland) there was no segregation. Those lucky were sent to Finland. Who is not lucky - for the Urals to the company to Ingermanlanders, sent in the 30s. And the "liberated" territories were populated by peasants of the Kostroma and Vologda regions. So there was no second and third grade, let alone assimilation. And those who tried to become one, returning to their homeland, were sent to the zone for violating the regime of "special settler"

The result of the war is recognized immediately in favor of the Finns, taken from the poor! And the fact that they themselves had violated a bunch of laws when they left Russia, came out with an increase in territory. About expulsion to the USSR. My grandfathers have often told stories about betrayal by people of nationalities whom they fought during the Second World War. It was a necessary measure. In your example, the Finns betrayed the state in which they lived in large numbers, it defended itself. There is nothing to blame today on the mirror, if the mug is crooked.

    The Finns returned to their old borders in two months, having defeated the units of the 43rd, 115th and 123rd infantry divisions of the 23rd Army of the Red Army at the village of Porlampi, the Gulf of Finland remained Finnish (except for the eastern part to the Shepelev-Stirsudden line ), which showed further actions of the CBF
    "On August 28, 1941, Wilhelm Keitel sent Mannerheim a proposal, together with the Wehrmacht, to storm Leningrad. At the same time, the Finns were invited to continue the offensive south of the Svir River in order to connect with the Germans advancing on Tikhvin. Mannerheim replied that the Svir crossing was not in the interests of Finland. Mannerheim recalls that after hearing a reminder that he made the refusal to storm the city a condition of his tenure as commander-in-chief, Finnish President Ryuti, who arrived at the headquarters, answered German proposals on August 28 with a categorical refusal to attack, which was repeated on August 31.
    Finnish soldiers cross the border with the USSR, summer 1941.
    On August 31, Finns entered the old Soviet-Finnish border near Leningrad, thereby closing the half-ring of the city’s blockade from the north. The Soviet-Finnish border, which existed since 1918, was crossed by Finnish troops in places to a depth of 20 km, the Finns were stopped at the turn of the Karelian fortified area. Mannerheim ordered the troops on the Karelian Isthmus to go on the defensive.
    On September 4, 1941, General Jodl, the chief of the main staff of the German armed forces, was sent to Mannerheim’s headquarters in Mikkeli. But even then he received a refusal from the participation of the Finns in the attack on Leningrad. Instead, Mannerheim launched a successful offensive north of Lake Ladoga. "

      Further, based on the logic and orientation of your comment, should von Mannerheim be called the "savior of Leningrad", and St. Petersburgers - Leningraders, repent to him for the demolished plaque?

      What is this if not an attempt to rewrite history?

        Why did the Swede Karl Gustav Emil Mannerheim become the "background"? There’s no need to rewrite history: interesting historical details are born right in your brain. Can you read something, learn at last? Not?

          Do not carry nonsense without having an idea what you are writing about:

          Mannerheim (German: von Mannerheim) - baronial and count earl.

          The most famous representative of the clan is the General of the Russian Imperial Army, Marshal of Finland, President of Finland Karl Gustav Emil Mannerheim (1867-1951).

          Until the early 2000s, it was believed that Mannerheim moved to Sweden from Holland. But A Finnish-Dutch group of researchers published a message in early 2007 that they had found a church book in the Hamburg archives according to which the oldest known ancestor of Gustav Mannerheim, Hinrich Marhein, was baptized at St. Jacob's Church in Hamburg on December 28 1618 year. From the record of his birth, it follows that his father was a certain Henning Marhein, who was granted citizenship of the city of Hamburg in 1607.

          There is a document from which it follows that Hinrich Margain, who, after moving to Sweden, began to be called Henry, founded an ironworks here. His son in 1693 was elevated to the Swedish nobility (Swedish.) Russian. (under the name Mannerheim).

          With a diploma from the Swedish king Adolf-Friedrich dated 18 (new style on February 29), 1768, Major General and commander of the Dalekarli Regiment Gustav-Heinrich Mannerheim and retired Colonel Johann-Augustine Mannerheim were elevated, with descending descendants, to the Baron kingdom of Sweden.

            I also read interesting information about the allegedly Dutch origin of Mannerheim, but this is the first time that this study has been studied. I just didn’t understand why, after all, the “background”, if you yourself write that a person of unknown origin, Hinrich Margain, became in 1607 just an ordinary Hamburg burgher? Then this burgher (i.e., a city dweller) left for Sweden and only his son in 1693 received the Swedish (and his descendants after the annexation of Finland and the Russian nobility). As far as I know, the Swedish (and Russian) noblemen do not have the prefix "von", especially since the following follows "... the commander of the Dalekarli regiment Gustav-Heinrich Mannerheim and the retired colonel Johann-Augustine Mannerheim ...", without any background ". If Margain arrived in Sweden as a German nobleman, then without any doubt he would have remained a "background", otherwise Mannerheim would have simply ...

            Do not carry nonsense without having an idea what you are writing about:
            Very correct remark. Just why you yourself do not follow him and carry this same nonsense, moreover with aplomb, although you have no idea about the issue.
            In Germany, Mannerheim did not receive the titles.
            Mannerheim received the nobility in Sweden in 1693. Although the tradition of using the particle “background” instead of the old Swedish form af was borrowed in Sweden and Finland from Germany in the XNUMXth century, not all noble families used it.
            Therefore, the barons of Mannerheim, which are included in the List of noble families of the Grand Duchy of Finland under No. 18, were never "backgrounds", as you can see by looking at this very list.

But even then he received a refusal from the participation of the Finns in the attack on Leningrad. Instead, Mannerheim launched a successful offensive north of Lake Ladoga.

      He wouldn’t be refused. smile A direct attack on Leningrad through the KaUR was not provided for by any pre-war joint German-Finnish plans. According to these plans, the main blow was delivered north of Ladoga, where the Finns, in cooperation with the Germans, were supposed to close the "big ring", cutting off Leningrad from the rest of the country. Moreover, the Germans in June 1941 insisted:
      so that Field Marshal Mannerheim directs the main blow of his ground forces not through the Karelian Isthmus to Leningrad, but east of Lake Ladoga in the direction of Lodeynoye Field in Svir

      On August 2, the Germans confirm this plan and ask that the main forces of the Finnish army be concentrated in the Lodeinopolsky direction.
      And suddenly, Keitel and Jodl suddenly break all plans and demand that Mannerheim arrange a meat grinder for the Finnish army, without stopping the offensive for Ladoga. Naturally, Mannerheim refused:
      I told [Finnish President R. Ryti] that we should clarify the position of the Germans. If they take possession of Leningrad from the south, then it makes no sense to break through to the city through the fortified area at the old border, when Leningrad will in any case be in the "cauldron"

      As a result, Keitel received the answer that the Finns do not have artillery and aviation to break through the KaUR, and the mobile reserve has already been exhausted - the Finns mobilized 16% of the population. And Finland can strike at the Karelian Isthmus only in the event of a successful assault on Leningrad from the German side. However, the Finns from September 1 several days fought against KaUR in the Sestroretsk and Beloostrovsky directions, found out that the BROs are mothballed, equipped and have infantry filling - and on September 9 threw this bad job.
      Moreover, the Germans, instead of breaking through to meet the Finns between Leningrad and Ladoga (this was exactly what was prescribed by the GA "Sever" by another Directive), hit in the direction of Leningrad itself - and got stuck in battles in the suburbs. Von Leeb grossly violated the order from above - and lost.
      But to the north of Ladoga, the Finns not only reached Svir, but even forced it. Next was the German zone of responsibility - but the Germans were late in this direction (from the south). And Mannerheim did not want to put the Finns instead of the Germans.

        How dare you encroach on the thesis of good Mannerheim.
        The famous historian Nikolai Ivanovich Baryshnikov pointed out three reasons:
        1) The increased resistance of the Red Army and the serious losses of the Finns, who had not yet departed from that war
        2) Reluctance of the Finnish rank and file to fight. Even desertion from the front.
        3) The pressure of the Anglo-Americans on Finland.
        But even so, Ryti in September dreams of destroying Leningrad. Mannerheim begs the 163rd division from the Germans. Now, if they threw her to his aid ...

      Yeah, they "wanted to" reason "with the Finnish government, how come. It was for “reasoning” that Stalin created the “people's government” of Kuusinen, hoping to imprison him in “liberated” Finland. But after the USSR was expelled from the League of Nations, and England, France, Sweden began to prepare the landing of their troops in Finland, simultaneously with the preparation of an attack in the direction of Baku, only then in the Kremlin they started talking seriously about peace talks. And yes, there is such a point of view that Hitler, who had not yet highly appreciated the quality of the USSR armed forces, after this war began to speak contemptuously about the USSR and its army, aviation and navy, and it was after this unfortunate war that he decided to quickly solve the problem with the Red Colossus on Clay Feet, until he drew conclusions from this war and rearmed.

    Russia returned part of Karelia and Vyborg, lost as a result of the collapse of the Russian Empire


    An alternative story has gone .... lol

    only AFTER THE THIEF Finns declared independence and it was the Bolsheviks who themselves recognized the independence of Finland, ...... without even bothering to specify borders. fool

    .
    London and Paris decided to attack to the USSR (How the West was preparing a "crusade" against the USSR)


    But comrade Stalin directly told and quite different:
    Did the government and party do the right thing declared war on Finland? ..

    There in the West the three biggest powers grabbed each other's throats - when to decide the question of Leningrad, if not in such conditions, when the hands are busy and we find a favorable environment so that their at that moment hit?

    It would be great stupidity, political myopia to miss the moment and not try as soon as possible, while there is a war in the West, to pose and resolve the issue


    And here is how Finland was preparing to “attack” the USSR (as the author claimed):
    Stalin: The Finnish army is not capable of great offensive action. The main drawback in this army is she’s not capable of great offensive actions, on the defensive, she is passive and very stingy with a counterattack, and she organizes a counterattack extremely clumsy and she always left with losses after a counterattack.

    This is the main drawback of the Finnish army. It was created and brought up not for the offensive, but for defense, and the defense is not active, but passive.

    Defense with deep fetish faith, faith in an invulnerable land. I can’t call such an army modern.

    The killer source, told quite another, as we see, another ....
    Russia returned part of Karelia and Vyborg,

    FALSE: Karelia and Vyborg, which entered the educated so-called Karelian-Finnish SSR, which is to Russia, according to owls. Constitution, had nothing to do.

    And only in 1956 was it destroyed ugly anti-Russian state educationcreated on Russian lands in 1940 Mr. Karelia returned to the fold of Russia.

    It’s even scary to imagine if it lived to see the collapse of the USSR: today Murmask would be in the position of Kaliningrad cut off from Russia, without land communications and railways ....

                  A kind of final assessment of the state of the Red Army was made on October 28, 1939, by the Statistical Bureau of the General Staff of the Army of Finland, which prepared "Notes on the fighting condition of the Red Army." "The Red Army is currently not and in the near future will not become an effective means of warfare." Therefore, "taking into account the internal political situation in the USSR, the Soviet government will not start a war, even if it is against the numerically weakest army." Further train of thought led the authors of the document to a logical conclusion: "The most insignificant misfire, failure can shock the existing political system in the USSR, and the country's leadership is aware of this."

                  The expectation that Finland would be able to repeat the feat of little David, who overthrew the giant Goliath - the USSR, was also reflected in the operational plans of the Finnish army, operating on a vast front from the northern Ladoga to the Barents Sea. It was supposed immediately after the attack of the USSR to go on the offensive and occupy a number of territories, primarily in Soviet Karelia. In addition to military expediency, apparently, the possibility of a local population speaking out against the Bolshevik regime was also taken into account. The command of the Finnish army finally abandoned these plans only a week after the start of the "winter war", since the Red Army grouping in this direction was unexpectedly powerful "(Y. Kilin).

                  "... we interrogated the prisoners. Some of them were still shaking with nervous chills. It was as if we had just realized the madness of the attack with small arms against the armor. When asked what caused this, the captured non-commissioned officer began to say such things that I asked the translator ... And he explained that the commander of the battalion assured the soldiers the day before yesterday: the Russians, they say, do not have real tanks, but only old, foreign-made tractors. They are covered with armored plywood, you can pierce it with a bayonet strike, not to mention a bullet and a grenade. " (V.S. Arkhipov)

                    A kind of final assessment of the state of the Red Army was made on October 28, 1939, by the Statistical Bureau of the General Staff of the Army of Finland, which prepared "Notes on the fighting condition of the Red Army." "The Red Army is not currently and in the near future will not become an effective means of warfare"

Just because of the decision taken before June 22 to differentiate powers in Finland and subordinate the northern Finnish forces to the Germans (and the southern German to the Finns), the Northern Finnish units are usually united with the German ones - according to a common command body.

                  He wrote a document to Fricke. And Raeder, otmazyvaya Kriegsmarine, officially stated that the fleet to the wording used in the document is irrelevant - Fricke only repeated the words of Hitler.
                  Unfortunately, he included in this document the expressions used by Hitler, which are in no way related to the case, since we were worried because nothing was being done with the shelling. Thus, he does not assume responsibility in any case, in the sense that he approved it. He only believed that he should have included Hitler’s wording in the document. The navy had nothing to do with this issue. It would not have been necessary to publish it, and, unfortunately, and very awkwardly, the expression used by Hitler was introduced into this document.

                  So this document actually sets out the Führer’s response to Kriegsmarine’s request regarding the fate of Leningrad (more precisely, the fleet was interested in the possibility of preserving ports and docks).
                  ... Admiral Fricke was at the headquarters of the Führer - I don’t know for what reason - and there he spoke with the Führer in my absence. The Führer explained to him that they were planning to shell Leningrad, especially from airplanes, and he used these very exaggerated words, which were then written in the document.

Since Hitler had a chatty mood that day, he did not just send Frick to hell, but half an hour sprayed saliva on the fate of the world. Fricke neatly transferred these sprays into his service to the quartermaster, not from a great mind.

                    Are you really going to refer to a document in which one person, at the time of publication of the deceased, retells the conversation with another person, at the time of publication of the deceased, on a subject that is not within the competence of the author and the recipients of this document?

    In the photographs, residents of Leningrad meet the Red Army soldiers returning from the Finnish War, a difficult, bloody war. We can say that, they say, the "party and government" caught up with these unfortunate Soviet citizens at this meeting. But nonetheless. The unity of the army and the people.
    And in the 90s-2000s they didn’t meet those returning from the Caucasus, only families and colleagues, and the “party and government” not only washed their hands, but also allowed spitting and censure. And now the topic with Afghanistan is still sometimes raised, and in the Chechen campaigns it is somehow quietly, imperceptibly.

              I want to say that you are repeating the tale about the strategic task of protecting Leningrad from the north, which was created precisely to justify the idiocy of one mustached comrade because of which the soldiers died in the winter war and then the blockades.
              Stalin’s idea was simple - to return the territories of the Russian Empire that were torn away from the country after the revolution (by the way, he achieved success by the end of WWII, and I would be glad if it weren’t for the huge price in human lives because of my own stupidity and narcissism). And the idea of ​​the Finns was to sit out and make money in the war, like other neutrals during the WWII.
              Now about the blockade - the blame for them is entirely on Stalin and the Soviet system. Or do you want to say that the Finns were to be grateful for the treacherous attack and bombing of their cities to supply food to Leningrad? You are probably not in the know, but on the orders of Stalin, all food from the zones of possible occupation by the enemy was taken out, including from Leningrad ... for some reason people were not taken out, it was even forbidden at first. By the way, the continuous ring of the blockade never happened, this is another Soviet myth to justify Stalin for so many victims. Stalin would like to supply food and take people out. He would do it on Lake Ladoga without any problems, but I think he was glad to get rid of the rotten (in his apt expression) St. Petersburg intelligentsia. The leader did not like Leningrad and Leningrad residents, and after the war he finished off the Leningrad elite with the final “Leningrad affair”.
              PS By the way, the irony of 41 years is that the USSR attacked Finland, too treacherously, without declaring war.

                Cheats:
                On June 21–25, German naval and air forces acted against the USSR from Finland (this is about Finland’s neutrality). On June 22, 1941, in response to the Finnish troops occupying the demilitarized zone of the Åland Islands, Finnish troops were bombarded by Soviet aircraft. On June 25, the forces of the Soviet air fleet launched an air strike at 18 Finnish airfields involved in military operations and several settlements. On the same day, the Finnish government announced that the country was at war with the USSR (this is about the treachery of Stalin). Concerning "I would have done it on Lake Ladoga without any problems" - were you in Ladoga? There, in the summer, it’s scary. The road of life was shot through from the south and north, bombed. On the Ladoga operated fleet of Finland, Germany, Italy. Until September 8.09.41, 17, nothing was exported from Leningrad except cultural property, equipment of enterprises, institutes, specialists, and children. To organize defense, Zhukov was sent to Leningrad — what zone of occupation? About the victims: the loss of the USSR 17000000 million people of the civilian population, the rest - the loss of the army. Think of the XNUMX killed by the fascist beast. Well, etc. Turn on your head.

                  You are so funny with your Wikipedia quotes, you should at least check the sources from the links there.
                  On June 21–25, German naval and air forces were acting against the USSR from Finland — a link to the book Finland on the Road to War. I have this book and I confess I did not find such a statement in it.
                  And here’s what’s there: “In Moscow on June 23, 1941, Molotov called in a Finnish charge d'affaires Hunninen and asked him what Hitler’s speech meant. Hunninen couldn’t give an answer. Then Molotov demanded that Finland clearly define its position - Does it stand on the side of Germany or maintain neutrality? Does Finland want to include among its enemies the Soviet Union with a two hundred million people, and possibly also England? The Soviet Union did not make Finland any demands, and therefore it has every right to receive a clear answer to its questions Molotov accused Finland of bombing Hanko and flying over Leningrad. Hyunninen, for his part, was the Soviet Union in bombing Finnish ships and fortifying Alskari. Everyone assured him that he was not aware of the flights of his aircraft, but Hunninen managed to notice that he was over Leningrad shot down a German plane. "
                  “During a conversation on June 23, 1941, Molotov did not say a word about the German troops in Finland, which indicated a clear desire for an agreement, a hope to keep Finland out of the war. But his proposal was turned to Helsinki only on the day when the Russians bombs were already raining down on the cities of southern Finland (June 25), so that it immediately lost its relevance, and if Soviet diplomacy really stood up to this point in the world, then we can say that the superpower was unable to effectively coordinate the efforts of its diplomats and actions Air Force. "

                  From our side:
                  The commander of the Northern Front Air Force A. A. Novikov writes in his memoirs “And on the night of June 23, an air-raid alarm sounded in the city of Lenin. Anti-aircraft guns also spoke for the first time. The 194th anti-aircraft artillery air defense regiment met a group of Yu- 88 flying from the Gulf of Finland. "
                  “In June, Soviet pilots did not allow the bombing of Leningrad, Kronstadt, Vyborg and the cities of Karelia. But, paying tribute to our pilots, we realized that the enemy’s failure was largely due to the low activity of his aircraft, the main striking forces of which have not yet come into action. Logic suggested that we should not wait for the enemy to throw all the aircraft into battle, that we should try to seize the initiative in the air ourselves and be the first to launch massive attacks on enemy aircraft. "
                  “The idea of ​​preemptive attacks on enemy airfields arose on my very first day of the war ... That’s why there were no reports of German aircraft bombing deep objects such as Riga, Kaunas, Minsk, Smolensk, Kiev, Zhytomyr and Sevastopol it was a surprise for me. It was only the ease with which enemy planes penetrated our territory that astonished me. This fact was alarming. We had to take urgent measures to save Leningrad from the fate of the cities that were bombed violently in the very first hours of the war. Such measures could be ours active actions in the air. I expressed my thoughts to the executive officers of the district air force, they supported me. We quickly figured out our capabilities and decided that if we did not hesitate, then we could completely cope with this task.
                  The next day, I reported on our plan to General Popov. Markian Mikhailovich agreed with us, but said that this issue must first be agreed with Moscow, since the order to ban raids on Romania and Finland is still valid. On the same day, he called Marshal Tymoshenko. The People's Commissar consulted at even higher authorities, and permission was obtained. 540 aircraft were allocated for attacks on enemy airfields in Finland. The operation involved the Air Force of all combined arms armies of the Northern Front - the 14th, 7th and 23rd, navies and the front air group.
                  On the afternoon of June 24, the commander of the Northern Front, M. M. Popov, and the member of the Military Council of the Front, N. N. Klementyev, approved the plan for the air operation. At the end of the day I was informed that in most units and formations the preparation for the strike was basically over. ”

                  And here is the Tymoshenko directive:
                  "June 24, 1941
                  1. It has been established from reliable sources that German troops are concentrated in Finland, with the aim of striking at Leningrad and seizing the region of Murmansk and Kandalaksha. To date, up to four infantry divisions have been concentrated in the region of Rovaniemi, Kemiyarvi and an undetermined group in the areas of Kotka and north of the Hanko Peninsula.
                  German aviation also systematically arrives in Finland, from where it raids on our territory. According to reports, the German command intends to strike an air strike against Leningrad in the near future. This circumstance is crucial.
                  2. In order to prevent and disrupt the air strike on Leningrad, outlined by the German command in Finland, I order:
                  Starting from June 25.06.1941, XNUMX, the Military Council of the Northern Front will begin the hostilities of our aviation and rout the enemy’s aircraft day and night and destroy airfields in the area of ​​the southern coast of Finland, bearing in mind the points of Turku, Malmi, Porvoo, Kotka, Holol, Tampere, in areas bordering the Karelian Isthmus, and in the area of ​​Kemijärvi, Rovaniemi. The operation should be carried out jointly with the Air Force of the Northern and Baltic Fleets, about which to give appropriate instructions to the fleet command.
                  At the same time, fully alert the air defense of Leningrad, providing reliable cover for Leningrad from German air raids by a sufficient number of fighters.
                  Copies of the given orders shall be delivered to me by 24:00 on June 24.06.1941, XNUMX.
                  From the Headquarters of the High Command People’s Commissar of Defense S.K. Timoshenko. ""

                  Well, since you are a victim of Wikipedia and Soviet propaganda, you probably do not know that this mighty raid of Soviet aviation ended in a natural zilch. Since at the Finnish airfields there was not only a concentration of German aircraft, but also Finnish for the bombing of Soviet territory (Finnish aviation was pulled inland). But due to the lack of Finnish aviation and the stupidity of Finnish ground-based detection services, it was possible to successfully bomb in Finnish cities.
                  June 25, 1941 without declaring war, without recalling the ambassador from Helsinki, without official notification of the termination of the Moscow Peace Treaty of 1940, a massive bombing strike is launched on Finland. Well, what could the Finns do? Only fight. Maybe the Finnish leadership wanted revenge, but there was a minority in the parliament of supporters of war - and here they got a present.
                  Well, after such an epic failure - pulling into the war on a flat place in Finland, the generals needed to save their asses before the leader (or maybe the leader himself became uncomfortable to screw up again for several days). This is where the legends about hordes of evil Finns and Germans on their territory ready to invade the peaceful and defenseless USSR began to be born.

                  In Finland (at Rovaniemi and Luonetjärvi aerodromes), two long-range reconnaissance units (a total of 6 aircraft) were based, and one squadron (a total of 10 operational Messerschmitts) of Luftwaffe fighters was based at the Luostari polar airport. In addition, one squadron of German bombers (no more than 12 aircraft) from the KGr-806 air group based in East Prussia landed several times for refueling at the Finnish airfields of Utti and Malmi (southern Finland).
                  Active military operations of Soviet and German aviation began from the very first days of the war (that is, June 22–23), but not over Leningrad, but in the Arctic, in the sky over Kirkenes, Petsamo, Murmansk, and the Rybachy Peninsula. Both sides of the outbreak of the war were fighting, disregarding the state borders of Finland. Soviet bombers attacked military facilities on the territory of Norway occupied by the Germans, German planes bombed the Northern Fleet's main base in the Murmansk region, attacked Soviet ships in the Barents Sea, conducted air reconnaissance in the areas of Murmansk and Kandalaksha.
                  All sorties of the Luftwaffe aircraft in the Arctic were made exclusively from airfields in Norway (Hebukten and Banak). German fighters flew to the Finnish Luostari airfield only on June 24–25 and did not participate in the hostilities (not counting the reflection of Soviet air force attacks on the Luostari airfield) until the Wehrmacht ground troops attacked Murmansk.
                  Throughout the war, Mannerheim's ban on Finnish aircraft flying over Leningrad was in force.
                  PS You already begin to put pressure on the pity of the victims, so as not to recognize the incompetence of the country's leadership.

                    Well done, prepared, hooked. He wrote a lot, but the main thing here: the deployment of aggressor troops in Finland and the fighting of Germans and Finns against the Soviet Union. And in general - carefully read your texts. They contradict your conclusions. Judging the competence of management can only be more competent. They were? I do not press pity, but I have a memory. And yes, come on, ask forgiveness on your behalf from the Finnish people for the atrocities of the Soviet Union, shuffle with your foot, let it go, you’ll give a visa for 5 years. I made fun ...

          You tell this to the blockade - they will tear you.


          Unlike you, I have someone to ask. Grandfather fought in the intelligence of the headquarters of the Leningrad Front, grandmother commanded a workshop for sewing uniforms, my mother is alive and remembers the events of those years. The family lived in the north of the city, near the military factories. There were no bombings and shellings from the Finnish side. Only the Germans. Finnish attitude is quite neutral

                I see you do not understand.
                On Porokhovykh, where your mother probably lived, it was quiet. Gunpowder is very far from the front line both on one side and on the other.
                But the Finns did not have anything to shoot at Leningrad physically and bomb, too.
                The shortest distance from the front line (Rusty Ditch - Old Village) is 25 km. The area of ​​the Rusty Ditch was in the zone of shelling from Kronstadt, the area of ​​Beloostrov and to the north - the batteries of the Rzhev landfill. It was not possible to place heavy guns near the front line (and there were none).
                So good ?, vulnerable you are mine.

                  In the village of Kellomyaki (now Komarovo), the Finns in December 1941 built a battery of 254 mm guns from the Obukhov plant system. The firing range of the 235-kg shell was 29,5 km
                  Of the transporters of three TM-1-180 captured in Hanko (they were called 180 NRaut from the Finns), the 1st railway battery was formed, which later became part of the separate 2nd Coast Artillery Regiment (RTR 2). After repairs in 1941, they were tested by firing and obtained data on the ultimate firing range of 34,5-37,7 km
                  In 1943, the Finns put into operation three 305-mm railway conveyors TM-1-12, captured at Hanko. Towards the end of the summer of 1943, the 3rd Railway Battery was formed from them. For them, the Finns produced ultra-long 320-kg shells, which at an initial speed of 950 m / s could fly to a distance of 50-52 km.
                  Finnish railway installations usually operated in the area of ​​the Kuokkala and Ollila railway stations (now Repino and Solnechnoe). From there, 180-mm and 305-mm guns could fire at most of Leningrad, and 152-mm Kane installations reached Olgino, the Old Village and Pargolovo. I’m not talking about the Grazhdanka, Sosnovka, Ozerki, and Komendansky airfields, but they fired at Kotlin Island, forts Krasnaya Gorka, Obruchev (Krasnogvardeisky), Totleben (Pervomaisky) ) and etc.
                  But there is no reliable evidence of shelling of the city and suburbs

                  So good ?, vulnerable you are mine.

                  Something like that. Yes, and not yours, thank God.
