On this day and at this hour the Great Patriotic War began

22nd of June. The longest day of the year. Dawn dawned. People in the European part of the country are sleeping and dreaming. The Soviet people slept peacefully and had dreams on the night of June 22, 1941. Graduation celebrated in the country. Young people made plans for the future. And no one knew that for many of them this future would never come.


Hitler's bombers were already carrying their deadly cargo in order to drop it on Soviet cities. The invasion went on a huge front — along the length of almost the entire western Soviet border — in the air, on land and at sea.

The operational summary of the General Staff of the Red Army:

4:00 On June 22, the Germans raided our airfields and cities for no reason and crossed the border with ground troops.




The enemy used the surprise factor (although disagreements still exist on this wording) and attacked the Soviet troops, gaining a serious advantage in a number of directions.

This success of the first day of the war frankly intoxicated German troops - from ordinary to generals. "Blitzkrieg" for them loomed in all its glory: a couple of months and - to march through the parade along Red Square. But ... There were in the enemy camp those who already in the first hours of the war felt the nature of the active defense of the Soviet units and formations - those that could not only delay the advance of the Nazis, but also inflict counterattacks, resulting in heavy losses among the enemy personnel and in terms of military equipment.

Not so long ago, declassified documents about the first days of World War II indicate that dozens of German divisions out of those 140 that Hitler threw into the Soviet Union encountered difficulties that they frankly did not expect. And the main difficulty for the enemy was the courage and heroism of Soviet soldiers, selflessness and willingness to fight for their home, for their children, for their old men - to the last drop of blood.

Today is the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow in our country. From Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Pskov, from Krasnodar to Arkhangelsk, Candles of memory were lit. That war was sacred for our people, and the memory of that unparalleled feat that has been accomplished since the first days of the war is also sacred today.

We remember!

            "There is a date, a burning black mark on the annals of the Motherland forever"


            Today, at midnight, the Liturgy was served in memory of all innocent people who died on the battlefield, tortured to dungeons and camps, who did not survive the blockade and occupation.

            Along the entire border in Liepaja, in Brest
            Now the soldiers have risen from the graves.
            We can’t see any soldier’s faces,
            Neither gymnasts, nor bloody bandages.
            But the rustle of their victorious glory is heard
            In the silent silence of borders.


            The whole truth about the war in one photo

            Mother shelters her child during the shelling. Photo by A. Garanin. Bryansk Front, 1941

            Behind every photo, behind every frame - there are always real people. Their life and death.

            But there is more. Here is the pain of the country. Here is the truth about our war. The truth about how the Victory was given to us. Here is a complete understanding of what scum we fought with, what hell they built on Russian soil. In a literal sense. Because On 22 of June 1941 of the year, nonhumans came to our land. Evil has come.

            Seal of sorrow these days and months,
            Put on the memory of them,
            About those who did not live in this world,
            We secured a place among the living.

        The song was written by A. Brode in 1916. Lebedev-Kumach redid only two lines. In the original it was like this:
        "With the Germanic power of the dark,
        With the Teutonic horde! "
        True, it still does not lose relevance.

          RI peasants fought very well, for example, in 1916? How many deserters were there? The whole army. This is where socialism comes in. In 1941-45, the people defended their own, their social gains, which are now lost by the people.

            Peasants fought in World War I and fought well. So far, the rrrevolutionary propaganda advocates in the trenches have not started to roam and to incite to desertion. And in 1812 peasants fought and even partisan. Because the enemy came to their land. The collective farms were not popular, even such a rumor went around during the war: now the war will end and Stalin will dissolve the collective farms. I taped conversations with veterans - that’s how it was. They fought for their homeland. Do not confuse with the state.

          If you do not understand, I will try to explain. First of all, it was the SOCIALIST state that was going to destroy. Who raised this wolf? It is the capitalist countries, so that they, people could not even think that a country can exist without capitalists and nobles.

            First of all, Hitler followed the living space for the Germans. And in order to get it, it was necessary to exterminate our peoples, as a lower race. It seems that there was no socialism in Poland, but for some reason it occupied it. Hitler would have attacked us in any case, no matter socialism in Russia, capitalism or the feudal system. The West, even now, would have gladly torn us to pieces, despite the fact that we have socialism, thank God is over. By the way, Hitler was a socialist.

              Hitler was a socialist. ,,
              What a deep knowledge of history. He was a National Socialist, while in Germany the capitalists felt great. Who provided loans to that Germany, who helped with the construction of new factories? Isn’t it democratic, USA, Great Britain, France? You can still write a lot about ,, helplessness "of Hitler, but I won’t; you want to find it yourself (unless of course you want to know the TRUTH).

                Factories and factories in the USSR were built with the participation of kapstran. And the USSR also took loans, even from Nazi Germany, so that this is not an indicator. And Hitler nipped the oligarchs in order and turned them around to the people. They began to fulfill his plan, four years old, otherwise - expropriation and concentration camp. Hitler, yes, he was a socialist. But only for their own.

                    "TASS report. On August 19, after lengthy negotiations that ended successfully, a Trade and Credit Agreement between the USSR and Germany was signed in Berlin.

                    The agreement was signed by the USSR - deputy. Trade Representative E.I. Babarin, and from the German side - the city of Schnurre.

                    The trade and credit agreement provides for the granting of a loan by Germany to the USSR in the amount of 200 million German marks for a period of seven years out of 5% for the purchase of German goods within two years from the date of signing. "

                      And what, enlightened are you ours? At that time, the USSR was already on an equal footing, with the same Germany. And you are missing the point that it was an equal agreement. Until then, the Union PAYED only Himself. And in 39 countries (USSR and Germany) were outcasts. So your ,, shot ,, into the void.

                        I simply answered your question: "When the USSR took loans from Hitler" I took it, there was a case. And they took from the USA.
                        In addition to the USA and Germany, loans to the USSR were provided by:
                        Great Britain (annually lending in the late 20s and the first half of the 30s) Soviet purchases in the amount of up to £ 20-25 million In 1936, England granted the USSR a loan of 10 million pounds.
                        Czechoslovakia provided the USSR in 1935 with a loan of 250 million kroons (6% per annum).
                        Italy - a loan of 200 million lire for Soviet purchases in 1930 and 350 million lire in 1931.
                        Sweden in 1940 granted the USSR a loan of 100 million kroons
                        From a letter of I.V. Stalin V.M. Molotov (no later than August 6, 1930):
                        “... An agreement with Italy is a plus. Germany will reach for her. By the way, what about German loans? Force the export of bread with might and main. This is now the nail. If we take out the bread, there will be loans. ”

          Who raised this wolf? It is the capitalist countries, so that among them, people could not even think that a country can exist without capitalists and nobles.

          Oh-ho-ho ... for this, it was not necessary to cultivate a European power - Germany - with its idea of ​​fixing revenge for WWII. It was only necessary to set the country on the USSR sanitary cordon - Finland, Poland, Romania, Hungary - having pumped them with weapons and instructors and promised the territory of the Union. For the USSR in the mid-30s with its 25 personnel divisions from Kamchatka to Leningrad (half of which sat in the Far East), such an attack scenario in the General Staff of the Red Army was considered extremely dangerous and led to a protracted war with an unclear outcome (especially in the case of joining the attackers of Japan).
          Germany was nurtured to restore the system of checks and balances in Europe (VBR had an unrestrained France), as well as for a major war in Europe (overseas cousins). The USSR, in world politics, was then a second-rate country that was not taken seriously.

        Education at the beginning of the war and higher and complete secondary education was paid. Decree of the Council of People's Commissars of 1940 According to this decree, from September 1, 1940, paid education was introduced in grades 8-10 of secondary schools, in technical schools, pedagogical schools, agricultural and other specialized secondary institutions, as well as in higher educational institutions. Moreover, the tuition fee was by no means symbolic. And many, especially the agrarians, these "conquests" were in the throat. However, they fought primarily for the Motherland. (On the forts of Sevastopol, in the Crimean, they fought to death, apparently by analogy, for the serf regime of Nicholas I)

          If we attacked first, our partners would declare us the USSR aggressors.

          They had planned ABC before June 1941, in the spring American quartermasters worked in England for the deployment of American troops. The Allies will be satisfied with a protracted conflict regardless of the aggressor.

    And I remember what I managed to fetch from my grandfather. He did not like to talk about the war, as well as about the awards he received. I remember the stories of my mother, who at that time was 6 years old, when Hungarian fascists stood in the farm where I was born later.
    That war was sacred for our people

    I apologize for taking the quote out of context, but according to the speeches of Kollenek in the Bundestags, the Mannerheim plaques and Kiselev's calls from VGTRK Rossiya to erect monuments to Nazi criminals, I am not at all sure what remains sacred for all WWII.

    Speech by comrade Molotov on the radio June 22, 1941


    Citizens and citizens of the Soviet Union!

    Today, at 4 a.m., without making any claims against the Soviet Union, without declaring war, German troops attacked our country, attacking our border in many places and bombing our cities - Zhytomyr, Kiev, Sevastopol, Kaunas and some others. Enemy raids and artillery shelling were also carried out from the Romanian side and from Finland. This unheard-of attack on our country, despite the existence of a non-aggression pact between the USSR and Germany, is unprecedented in the history of civilized peoples. All responsibility for this attack on the Soviet Union falls entirely on the German fascist government. After the attack, the German ambassador in Moscow, Schulenburg, at 5 o’clock. 30 minutes in the morning I made a statement to me, as the People’s Commissar of Foreign Affairs, on behalf of my government that the German government was allegedly forced to take military countermeasures in connection with the concentration of the Red [Army] armed forces on the eastern German border. In response to this, on behalf of the Soviet Government, I stated that until the last minute the German Government had not made any claims against the Soviet Government and that Germany had attacked the USSR, despite the Soviet Union’s peace-loving stance, and that thus fascist Germany was the attacking side. On behalf of the Government of the Soviet Union, I must declare that at no point did our troops and our aviation commit border violations and therefore the statement made by the Romanian radio this morning that allegedly Soviet aircraft fired at Romanian airfields is a complete lie and provocation. Now that the attack on the Soviet Union has already been completed, the Soviet government has ordered our troops to repel the attack and expel the German troops from the territory of our homeland. The Government of the Soviet Union expresses unshakable confidence that our valiant army and navy and the brave falcons of Soviet aviation will honor their duty to their homeland, to the Soviet people and inflict a crushing blow on the enemy.

    Our cause is just. The enemy will be defeated. Victory will be ours!

    This success of the first day of the war frankly intoxicated German troops - from ordinary to generals.


    . "... In 1938, the director of the Institute of General and Military Physiology of the Berlin Academy of Military Medicine, Otto Ranke, turned his attention to the product produced by the Berlin company Temmler. PERVITIN was a drug from the class of amphetamines, it had the same effect as adrenaline produced In essence, amphetamines were doping that accelerated sleep, increased the ability to concentrate, a sense of self-confidence and willingness to take risks.At the same time, the person taking pervitin dulled the feeling of hunger and thirst, decreased sensitivity to pain. ..

    It seemed cold to the flowers
    and from the dew they faded slightly.
    Dawn, that walked on grasses and bushes,
    rummaged through German binoculars.

    A flower, whole in dewdrops, clung to a flower,
    and the border guard held out his hands to them.
    And the Germans, having finished drinking coffee, at that moment
    climbed into the tanks, closed the hatches.

    So everything breathed silence,
    that the whole earth was still asleep, it seemed.

    Did not help.
    When a boot stepped on our side,
    Then no one could help them, and did not help.
    Broke in at dawn, with the first rays,
    All our people wanted to become executioners.

    A wide front, from the White Sea to the Black,
    The fate came to rule the doomed People.
    To come here is not difficult. It's hard to blow hooves.
    There are millions of them! Stayed here with us, buried.

    Many of our soldiers died more than these,
    However, even this, the enemy did not help.
    Neither Hitler nor the silly one helped them,
    Neither Hungarians, nor Romanians, nor any Croats.

    Neither a Latvian with an Estonian, nor a Banderoshelupon,
    No other sub-stink like them.
    Nothing helped the filthy gang
    Blitz Krieg did not come out with barbecue on the lawn!

    Neither Goering helped, nor from the Luftwaffe aces,
    Not countless of them, air bombs and land mines,
    Here you are not Denmark! Neither horseradish nor the Netherlands,
    Neither the tanks had been saved, nor the Ferdinands.

    Guderian, the father of German tanks, didn’t help
    From someone it was not possible to pick up the remains.
    Walter Model, the master of defense, didn’t help either.
    All mines, shells and ammunition did not help.

    Neither Geppner helped nor Hermann "papa" Gott,
    Not the "best on earth" Aryan code.
    Not helped, von Bock, Hans-Gunther von Kluge,
    Neither Walter, nor MP, nor Mauser, nor Luger ...

    The talent of staff member Franz Halder didn’t help,
    The calculations of the chief accountant were in vain.
    Sibzdik Goebbels did not help with his fits
    There is no salvation if ours run with shoulder blades! ..

    Not saved, their Germanic gods, the team of Odin,
    Woe will be to all who step beyond the Smorodin River! ..
    Neither technology nor the power of the plants saved
    Nobody should ever take our Freedom ...

One tank driver, the T 34 mechanic, the other chief of staff of the rifle division. 11 uncles did not return from that War. All from the Far East. I accidentally found one in the Tver region. I scribble and remember.

    And the grandmother looked at her grown-up children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren when she was staying with her and quietly said "if only there was no war."

    The most important thing is that evil has not gone anywhere, it still lives next to a person, captures entire communities, countries, states, minds and souls of people. It is worth looking at American "politicians" and it is clear - this is war! They are now held back by only one thing: the possibility of a retaliatory strike against the invasion, the fact that they will be destroyed in a new war. There won't be this deterrent, no history will help. On the other hand, evil should not be given the opportunity to finally rewrite and then forget the history of the Second World War. They did this with the memory of the wars of Charles XII, then with the Napoleonic wars and his invasion of Russia, the same happened with the First World War, which was sold into books, mediocre films and showy events in memory of the victims. Forgetting about the war means starting preparations for the next one. This is the goal of those who, at the cost of human lives, want to extend their cursed life.
