Norwegian author: We must not forget what sacrifice the Russians made during the war

On the eve of the 75th anniversary of the Victory over Nazi Germany, Western media began to publish materials whose authors recognize the crucial role of the USSR and the Red Army in the defeat of the Nazi armies. The author of the material on the theme of World War II and the contribution of the USSR was the Norwegian journalist Uwe Mellingen from the publication Telemarksavisa (TA). The article has been translated by the InoSMI portal.


Mellingen writes that whenever he comes to Russia, he sees how huge a role is played for Russian citizens история World War II, Victory directly in it.

A Norwegian journalist tells his readers that during the war years, the Soviet Union lost up to 27 million people. Moreover, the article refers to the readiness of some politicians to somewhat belittle the Soviet contribution to the defeat of Nazism.

Uwe Mellingen:

Even if we divide the point of view that the Soviet Union was headed by a tyrant, it is unreasonable to underestimate the role of the people. There is no reason to specifically praise Joseph Stalin, but you need to be grateful to the (Soviet) people (the author uses the generalized term “Russians”, approx. “VO”) for their sacrifice. It was they who managed to stop the most terrible military force at that time.

Mellingen writes that if it were not for the Russians, that in Norway today, they probably would have spoken only German.

Norwegian author:

We must never forget the sacrifice made by the Russians during the war. In the years 1940-1945, this country turned out to be our good neighbor - in the most difficult years for us.

    Words of gratitude for so rare reasonable statements by journalists in general, and from Western countries in particular.

      Norwegian * zhzhzhzhzhzh * for a reason.
      Apparently they were afraid of what would happen for the attack on the fishermen.
      Norwegians, however, like other countries of Western democratic regimes, can * tweet * on any topic because the hosts command the topic * tweet *. Yesterday, back in the direction of RUSSIA * they tweeted * only insults and outright lies.
      Norwegians should remember their own participation in the Nazi troops.
      Norwegians should remember their participation in the Civil War and overt piracy in OUR waters with the killings and robberies of fishermen.

    There is no reason to specifically praise Joseph Stalin,

    But he is wrong. Stalin sincerely worried. And even drunk Churchill drunk for the benefit of the USSR.

    Yesterday we lost the Italian friend of Russia, today we found the Norwegian!

    Our paid, I’m pretty sure. There are no sincere well-wishers in the West, there are no sincere ones there. And we are ready to bloom with one smile in our direction, we have always been like naive children in relations with the West. And there is the adult world, cynical and merciless.

    When there is a sharp turn, you begin to think about why. Yesterday, suddenly, articles about Poles and the Dutch, today about the overlooked Norwegians.

      Yes, and then you need to read completely, yesterday the Dutchman wrote that the Germans lost the war due to bad weather and Hitler, who interfered with his generals

    Why would it, then the Dutch, or the Norgs remember the contribution of the USSR to the defeat of Nazi Germany? Have stripes in the light of recent events lost their EXCEPTIONAL authority and as customary in civilized in the world, they are given, in between cases, to understand that they have lost their dominant position in Europe? All this is strange, but it leads to certain thoughts.

    Regarding attacks against I. Stalin:
    "Under the leadership of Marshal Joseph Stalin, the Russian people have shown such an example of love for the homeland, firmness of spirit and self-sacrifice, which the world has never known. After the war, our country will always be happy to maintain good-neighborliness and sincere friendship with Russia, whose people, saving themselves, help salvation the whole world from the Nazi threat "...

      I don’t know where this monument stands, but the tank on it is not real

      Near the museum in Prokhorovka. Rather, the tank itself is stylized, just a good angle

      why didn’t they put in a monument from Norway itself?

      or this one

      "Norway thanks you"

        Now times are different. Of course, you can find several objective publications, but the trend is different: 1) "the service provided costs nothing," 2) moreover, Nazism is a product of a united Europe, i.e. The USSR could not free Europe from itself, 3) the USSR does not exist. Who won, who lost? Look at the symbols.

    Well, here's another good job! This rarely happens, I hope, not custom material. I wonder why only representatives of northern Europe try to take a more objective look at the role of the Union in WWII ?! Are they the most tired of minke whales?

    It’s nice to hear the correct sayings of the Europeans, but I would like for them to have this understanding even after May 9th.

    Probably all taught history! And then, the problem of perceiving events and probably the upbringing that a person received in the family.
    We don’t need much, we just want more people to take the lessons of history objectively.
    From this, after all, everyone will be better! And the planet will have more chances to just survive.

    Norwegian journalist Uwe Mellingen from Telemarksavisa (TA)
    Not completely elementary human morality has rotted in Europe, there are still some rudiments. The other day, in the German press, a similar article appeared, reproaching the Germans in that they forgot who released them, including them. from Nazism, which they (Germans) are trying not to remember today. Reproach to the German and other European authorities who were in the midst of celebrating Victory Day in Moscow.
