Koenigsberg surrender called German national disaster


Koenigsberg is a walled city with powerful fortifications that have been created for centuries. The fact that Soviet troops took it in four days can be called a national disaster for Germany.


This opinion was expressed by a member of the Russian Military Historical Society (RVIO) Nikita Buranov in an interview with reporters of the news agency RIA News.

The operation to capture Koenigsberg ended on April 9, 1945. He commanded the troops that took the capital of East Prussia, Marshal Vasilevsky.

Nikita Buranov considers the capture of Koenigsberg by the Red Army as one of the decisive events in the end of World War II:

The fall in just four days of the impregnable Koenigsberg, a fortified city with a rich history, the cradle of the German military spirit, the capital of the Teutonic Order, from where the Germans started the war of aggression, became a real humiliation and a national disaster for Germany.

The Nazis hoped that Koenigsberg would be able to keep the defense long enough. Chrysler Ernst Wagner, knowing the power of this fortress, called it the “iron door of Germany”, which the Soviet Union could not open for at least six months. But everything went wrong as the Nazis had suggested, and after fierce, but short-term battles, Koenigsberg was taken.

The capture of this impregnable fortress became a real humiliation for the Nazis, undermining their fighting spirit and bringing the final victory over fascism closer.

      In this case, this is not a catastrophe - but its consequence! The reasons are a little different ... And if the Germans consider the surrender of Koenigsberg to be a national catastrophe - then I have a question - are they so stupid in the EU or are they plotting something again? laughing

        Most likely they are plotting something. The Germans are not the people who forgets something and forgives.

          Looking at their attitude towards migrants and “other minorities”, the issue is debatable. The spirit of Schiller is gone.

          No worse than Kolya from Urengoy.

          Hello. My name is Nikolai Desyatnichenko. I study in a gymnasium in the city of Novy Urengoy. I was invited to participate in a project dedicated to soldiers who died during the Second World War. This interested me very much, since I have been fond of the history of both my country and Germany since childhood.

          I immediately started looking for relevant information. First he visited the city archive and library, then he tried to find the stories of German soldiers on the Internet and other sources. However, later, in collaboration with the German People’s War Grave Care Alliance, I learned and studied in detail the biography of Georg Johan Rau.

          He was born on January 17, 1922 in a large family. George went to the front with the rank of corporal and fought as an air defense soldier in the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-1943. Georg was one of the 250 thousand German soldiers who were surrounded by the Soviet army in the so-called Soviet cauldron. After the cessation of fighting, he ended up in a prisoner of war camp. Only 6 thousand of these prisoners of war returned home, and George was not among them.

          For a long time, the relatives of the German soldier considered him missing. Only last year, the Georg family received information from the German People’s Union for the Care of War Graves that a soldier died from harsh conditions of captivity on March 17, 1943 in a prison camp in Beketovka. Perhaps he was buried among 2006 soldiers near this camp.

          The story of Georg and the work on the project touched me and prompted me to visit the burial site near the city of Kopeisk. This extremely upset me, because I saw the graves of innocently dead people, among whom many wanted to live peacefully and did not want to fight. They experienced incredible difficulties during the war, which my great-grandfather, a participant in the war who was the commander of the rifle company, told me about. He fought not for long, as he was seriously wounded.

          Otto von Bismarck said: "Anyone who has looked into the glassy eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think well before starting a war." I sincerely hope that common sense will prevail throughout the Earth and the world will never see wars again.

          Thank you for attention.

            And then to Krasnodon, where the good corporals first tortured the pioneer partisans, and then they threw the living into the pit of the mine and the groans of the children were heard for several more days

            Then Jesus said to him: return your sword to its place, FOR EVERYONE WHO TAKES THE SWORD WILL DIE THE SWORD;

        "The surrender of Koenigsberg was called the national disaster of Germany"
        Do not constantly repeat historical mistakes in Germany and avoid another "disaster"

        Germany is only seemingly independent, and others control it from across the ocean and the English Channel.
        Catastrophe is-
        -when they brought to power the national fascists in Germany.
        -when they financed them they gave them arms. They warmed up their appetite for the seizure of foreign territories and pushed Nah Osten at the head of almost all the brave marching Europe
        We see the same militaristic dying now both in Europe and from Germany .. a trip to a new catastrophe ..

          Here the author is not accurate. The Germans did not surrender Koenigsberg, and ours have taken. According to the meanwhile, when you are handed something over and the meanwhile, when you take something in battle, there is a big difference.

        Look deeper: there was no need to create national republics at all. The division of the country according to the territorial - economic principle. Or in the province, as it was in the Republic of Ingushetia. Or as in the States: they took a ruler and cut the state into squares.

          The fact is that in 1917 the Russian Empire completely collapsed. And in subsequent years, the new leadership of the country fought for their own power and survival by anyone! ways. Where there was not enough strength, they let go / give independence easily, hiding behind the idea of ​​a world proletarian revolution (in other words, we will return it anyway).
          Where there were no more or less strong national formations, they simply gave the opportunity to organize an "independent" state, for example, the Far Eastern Republic, on the principles of "a woman and a cart are easier for the mare" and also "we will return anyway."
          Stalin had to collect (in fact). And it turned out, in the vast majority of cases, that it might not be possible to return to the semblance of the previous division peacefully, and this again is blood / war, which just seems to have ended ...
          and who will restore the destroyed? who will teach literacy / electrify / industrialize the country? and the world proletarian did not work out.
          So we went along the path of national division, under the flag of internationalism, but! within one country ...
          In general, they created enormous problems in the country and then heroically (I write without any irony) and in many ways amazingly successful! they were solved.

            It was possible to abolish the national division later, when the state was already strong. Do not flirt with nationalities, do not encourage "Ukrainians" "Moldovanism" but persistently form a Soviet citizen, without dividing them into nations. The Communists declared internationalism and at the same time contributed to the division of the people of the USSR on a national basis.

              Hehehehe ... and you read the primary sources - what exactly the Communists understood by internationalism:
              I already wrote in my works on the national question that the abstract statement of the question of nationalism in general is worthless. It is necessary to distinguish between the nationalism of the oppressed nation and the nationalism of the oppressed nation, the nationalism of a large nation and the nationalism of a small nation.
              (...)
              Therefore, internationalism on the part of the oppressing or the so-called “great” nation (although great only by its violence, great only as great as the Grand Mordion) should consist not only in the observance of the formal equality of nations, but also in such inequality that would compensate the oppressing nation , a nation large, the inequality that actually develops in life. He who did not understand this, he did not understand the truly proletarian attitude to the national question, he essentially remained on the petty-bourgeois point of view, and therefore could not but slide down every minute to the bourgeois point of view.

              © VIL. To the question of nationalities or "autonomy".
              That is, Leninist "internationalism" does not imply any construction of a single nation "Soviet man." Moreover, national characteristics should not only be preserved, but also strengthened:
              ... it is necessary to introduce the strictest rules regarding the use of the national language in the foreign republics that are members of our union, and check these rules especially carefully. There is no doubt that under the pretext of unity of the railway service, under the pretext of unity of the fiscal, etc. with us, with our modern apparatus, a lot of abuses of a truly Russian property will penetrate. To combat these abuses, special ingenuity is needed, not to mention the special sincerity of those who undertake such a struggle. Here a detailed code will be required, which only nationals living in this republic can draw up to any success.

              But for all that, "Russian people have to pay and kayazzo".
              In its early works, the AFL assigned the responsibility for oppressing small nations and great-power chauvinism exclusively to Russian officials. But in the end, the Russian people as a whole turned out to be guilty.

            But there are others: the USSR was formed from the RSFSR, the Ussr (where more than half wanted to be in RUSSIA!), The BSSR (which itself did not really want to be a republic) and the tiny Transcaucasia.

            ALL!

            Now tell us who and when wanted to leave the RSFSR after 1922? Nobody again?

            WHY then the NON-existent "state" - the "republics" of Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, etc. were created NEVER? Who there threatened, rebelled with the exit that "had"? Nobody again?

        For this, it was simply not necessary to create the BSSR (many opposed its creation in Minsk itself!) In 1919 and it was not necessary to increase its territory THREE TIMES in 1924 at the expense of Russian lands (after the formation of the USSR!).
        And everything would be the way ....

        The BSSR did not border the Kaliningrad region, you are our competent.

          1. Go to secondary school and maybe. learn that in 1939 the USSR bought, in fact, from the Nazis the southwestern lands of Lithuania and ... gave them to Lithuania. I would not give up, there was a connection between the Bssr and In Prussia
          2. Poland was taken away not her land in 1939 and this, again, is a land connection with in Prussia

              1 in 1939 the USSR bought, in fact, from the Nazis the southwestern lands of Lithuania
              2. Poland did not take its land in 1939

                By the way, about Karelia. It was the Romanovs who passed in 1812. Vyborg / Finland Province (Old Finland) as part of the Grand Duchy of Finland. If it had not been handed over, Vyborg would not have had to be returned twice and the border could have been much more west.

                  No, that's right. Just the land corridor to Kaliningrad is obtained from the RSFSR in three stages:
                  1. The BSSR is not formed, its lands are included in the RSFSR as the Belarusian Territory.
                  2. In 1939, the USSR gave Germany the "Vylkasysh ledge". And after the reunification of the lands occupied by Poland, the USSR does not transfer Lithuania to the Vilnius Territory, but leaves it in the Belorussian Territory of the RSFSR (in real life, Stalin transferred bourgeois Lithuania lands already included in the BSSR).
                  3. In 1945, the Vulkashevsky ledge was transferred together with Koenigsberg and East Prussia from Germany to the Kaliningrad Region of the RSFSR.
                  As a result, after 1945, a corridor to the Kaliningrad region - between Poland and Lithuania within the borders of 1939 (without the Vylkyshevsky ledge) forms near the Belorussian Territory of the USSR.

      In general, the victorious Amerikan armada should, according to their standards, according to their experience - as with the first Iraq war - be assembled within six months ..... yeah. with that. they admit that we will take all the tattered poor Baltic states in just a week .... Damn. it seems to me alone. that no one is going to sweep the Bolts, or only the Americans? :))))))

          Hello.
          It seems to me - you're wrong.
          Yes, the teachings you indicated were also there.
          But what I said above concerned completely different teachings .... which broke down due to the coronovirus — both battalion and brigade truncated groups of US and NATO forces froze in the corners of eastern Europe and the Baltic states.
          I personally read the “recommended for acquaintance” cartoon, with which the hegemons supply their Baltic slaves - it’s not a secret - it’s - for the maximum understanding of the sun of the Bolsheviks (damn, I can’t even imagine what enti people feel after reading this :))))
          there were several options for the United States -
          1. the most stupid and funniest - the Russians attacked, got stuck in the mighty defense of the Baltic states and given strength, the allies arrived - their Germany, the rest of the Europe ... yeah, and the whole three heavy divisions of the United States. By the American divisions the American pans reported that the whole American group will be in the region of 300 thousand .... infantry tanks - fifty, and everything else - provision, aviation, fleet and the like ......
          damn, I almost cried ..... whole three divisions ... and they will calmly cross ... with our boats. and aviation, the campaign will agree on direct deliveries of fuel and batteries .... :))))))
          2. The smartest and most cunning - the Russians are able to take control within one to two weeks ..... and only then ... - all the same above-mentioned terms, difficulties and all that, plus - the tireless moral support of the enslaved :) )))) oh, I believe that those who are really at the helm are well aware that if we climb into the Baltic states, we will have to beat them until the enemy is completely eliminated - otherwise there’s no point in beating ....
          So it goes. :))))

      Military aircraft began to be actively used in FDA. Perhaps the inhabitants were so perspicacious that they planted trees in the 19th century precisely for the purpose of disguising themselves from aviation. For 20 years, the crowns do not have time to close.

        I have a neighbor in my small Motherland, was the commander of the St. John’s Wort. He told me that they worked in the city along the centers of resistance with a conveyor. Direct fire and quickly around the corner to reload. And a self-propelled gun with a shell in the barrel is already flying out to the position. 10-15 shots from the house where the Fritz settled - gravel. Mother infantry cleans the wreckage - go further. Serious knots of resistance bypassed, artillery of great and special power dealt with them.
        Our losses are 3700 killed and this is in an OFFENSIVE operation.

        Well, the town of Raushen, now Svetlogorsk, famous for its generals' summer residences, went untouched from German generals to Soviet generals.
        This means that in the spring of 1945 the Red Army was able to fight better than anyone else in Europe!

      The disaster of Nazi Germany began when Germany was
      at war with the three largest military powers in the world:
      USSR, USA and Britain (together with the entire British Commonwealth:
      Canada, Australia, India, etc.)
      The economic potential of the Allies exceeded the potential of the Axis countries
      more than ten times.

        If Germany in the 41st defeated the USSR, it is still unknown what would happen to the rest of the superpowers. I doubt their fighting efficiency, although the potential - yes ... But everything kept
        in the Soviet Union.

    In general, in order to even out the development of the regions, it is necessary to bring the size of the Kaliningrad region to the size of the Arkhangelsk region, at the first stage, of course. Well, and then - and to Yakutia-Sakha.
    There will be a republic of Kaliningrad-Sakha.

      The difference between a republic and a region or region is the presence of other official languages ​​other than Russian. Otherwise, there are no real differences.

    Simple Leningrad held on for more than 2 years. And here is a fortified city. These are fundamental differences: death is better than captivity, and the victor is submitted. The tragedy is Dresden. And the third Reich, the Aryans, Teutons, real Nordic people were humiliated by yesterday’s Bosot, peasants, unwashed barbarians, pigs from the east, led by the son of a shoemaker. And we lost all the polymers. But, Yura, there is still hope!

    In general, this city cannot be separated from the whole of East Prussia then, it was a single fortified area, and its capture did not end with the capture of Koenigsberg. And it took a little more than 4 days

      Yes, everything is consistent. Our fathers and grandfathers stormed, but on the German side they surrendered, they simply surrendered the winner, as evidenced by the act of surrender signed by the commandant of Koenig, General Foch.

      Absolutely.
      When Germany surrendered, it became the cessation of national
      German disasters and the revival of the German people after 12 years
      Nazi nightmare.
      And this became a disaster for the Nazi regime.

    In 1758, Russian troops entered Königsberg and its inhabitants swore allegiance to Elizabeth. Until 1762, he was part of the Republic of Ingushetia. Unfortunately, the alternatively gifted Peter the Third gave it away.

    Do not forget. Pillau (today Baltiysk) was taken on April 25, 1945, the battle for the Frisch-Nehrung spit ended on May 9, 1945 - with the surrender of the remaining Germans (about 22 people).

    There were no civilian Germans in the city - everyone washed away, fearing the "Asian hordes". But on the shore of the gulf they lay mixed with the military ...

    The biggest mistake was in 1761, when Peter !!! returned Koenigsberg, who had already sworn allegiance to the Russian Empire, to King Frederick.
