US ambassador explains White House statement on who defeated the Nazis

106

The United States Ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, clarified the content of publications on Twitter and White House Instagram about the victory over Nazi Germany, where only the United States and Great Britain were mentioned among the winners. He was “shocked” that these posts provoked an indignant reaction in Russia. Russian deputies and representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation expressed their protest.


The American ambassador told about this in an interview with the TV channel RBC.

Sullivan stated that the post was addressed to British partners and did not set out to list all the allies in World War II:

This is not an attempt to rewrite history and not a mistake. The message was addressed to our British allies.

Sullivan recalled that during the war, Washington and London worked very closely. According to him, millions of US troops were in the UK, from where they then landed in Normandy and North Africa.

The ambassador added that if it was a question of listing all the participants in the war against Hitler, the United States would have to apologize not only to Russia, but also to Canada, France, Poland and other states. However, he noted that in the Second World War, the Soviet Union was the most affected country.

On May 8, the White House published a post about the victory of the United States and Great Britain over Nazi Germany. However, nothing was said about the other allies.

      "... the United States would have to apologize not only to Russia, but also to Canada, France, Poland and other states ..."
      It is interesting how many such “other states” the United States could not transfer to mention not only their beloved ones and Great Britain, but also the rest, officially, and not in words that fought against Nazi Germany.

        There are quite a lot of officially fought.
        The founding countries of the UN are countries that fought against the Axis countries. There were 51 of them.
        In 1942, the countries of the anti-Hitler coalition signed the United Nations Declaration. There were 26 of them at that time.
        So officially, as you write, the list is big
        But the degree of participation is different, very different.

          I agree. The word "officially" in this case is not a very good definition. It’s more correct to say that they participated in the war realistically and on a large scale, and not just on paper.

    But what readers do not know the difference between World War II and World War II? Lord your grandfathers are actually not the only ones who fought with the Third Reich. For Western civilization, there was a war of its own, for the USSR, for China, which suffered even more than its own, etc. And I remind you that the "AXIS" included not only the Third Reich. Everything and everything from September 1, 1939 to September 2, 1945 is called the Second WORLD War.

But those for whom you are drowning here like this are more and more actively striking out the Soviet Union from among the winners and trying to put it almost on a par with Nazi Germany, inventing ridiculous explanations and arguments, which is hard to ignore.

      Get out of the way ... and then I will refresh your memory too. Who defeated the Kwantung Army in two weeks? Mattresses? Or maybe the Chinese? It was after the defeat of the Kwantung Army that Japan signed the surrender. And it’s not how they broadcast in the West, after they threw Kid and Fat Man on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. By the way, cities that have no strategic or military value. Stupidly destroyed hundreds of civilians, these victorious warriors.

        Why lie to Andrew? The Kwantung army was doomed without support and supply lines from the homeland, and given the complete defeat at sea, the Japanese had no opportunity to keep the army in an alert state and about the cities.
        Hiroshima was located on a flat area, slightly above sea level at the mouth of the Ota River, on 6 islands connected by 81 bridges. The population of the city before the war amounted to over 340 thousand people, which made Hiroshima the seventh largest city in Japan. "" The headquarters of the Fifth Division and the Second Main Army of Field Marshal Shunroku Hut, who commanded the defense of all of South Japan, was located in the city. Hiroshima was an important supply base for the Japanese army. ""

        And now further: According to the memoirs of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Togo, the day before the bombing of Nagasaki, the emperor informed Togo of his desire to “achieve a rapid cessation of hostilities” and “warned him that since we can no longer continue the fight, since the weapons are so destructive was used against us, we must not allow this opportunity [to end the war] to slip away, trying to negotiate more favorable conditions [of surrender]. "

        And now, when I caught you lying, I can confidently say that fairy tales and anti-Western propaganda were enough in the USSR and enough in the Russian Federation.
        Diminishing the role of the Second Front, which saved not a million Soviet soldiers and helped to end the war already in 1945 and prevent it from going on for another couple of years.
        Diminishing the role of Lend-Lease, for you it is considered to be absolutely non-affecting, I won’t even give you a statement by Zhukov.
        Silence or a rare mention is not only from what happened between the Third Reich and the USSR until 1939 and the topic of the division of eastern Europe between the Germans and the Soviets not specifically mentioned in the Russian Federation until their clash in June 1941, including, of course, the division of Poland.
        You also don’t particularly mention about the Soviet camps and about certain decrees of Stalin. I’ll even look into how practically all of Eastern Europe suddenly became communist as a result of absolutely illegal types: "elections", apparently in Yalta they lied not only an ally, right?

        I already realized that there’s no reason to have a conversation with you. You have already officially lied, and with your fierce hatred of the West, rewrite history yourself as you like, that is, in the way of the USSR, which has been gone for 30 years. And you will go to another world knowing that the USSR is gone and it collapsed because of people like you.

          Citizen troll, you are lying and do not even blush. The Kwantung army totaled ..
          The Kwantung Army and its subordinate forces comprised 37 infantry and 7 cavalry divisions, 22 infantry, 2 tank and 2 cavalry brigades (total 1 million 320 thousand people), 1155 tanks, 6260 guns, 1900 aircraft and 25 warships. The Kwantung Army also had bacteriological weapons prepared for use against Soviet troops

          That is almost a half million bayonets. And such a force was able to fight and quite successfully. So do not pull the owl on the globe, the troll.
          By the way, the word Homeland is capitalized, ignoramus.

          Excuse me, is everything all right with your head? That is, in your opinion, to destroy 200 thousand civilians, simply because the headquarters there were not even the army, but the division, is it justified?
          I repeat, for those who are in the tank, I had no Hiroshima of strategic or military importance at that time, from the word at all.

          There is nothing to belittle in essence.
          About Lend-Lease do not even stutter. This was not gratuitous help, but for GOLD, which we then gave back long after the war.

          Are you exactly mistaken? Remind you of the operation "The Unthinkable"? Or after ..
          In the directive of the Joint Military Planning Committee No. 432 / d of December 14, 1945, a plan was written under the name "Peancer" (Pincers). In it, for the atomic bombardment, 20 major cities and industrial centers of the USSR were outlined, which were supposed to drop 196 atomic bombs. This plan was followed by a number of others with equally frightening names: “Hot Day”, “Incinerating Heat”, “Shake”, etc.

          And now I’ll completely refresh your memory, since you have a short one ... why did a large number of Abwehr and SS officers immediately after the war work very calmly in the USA for the American defense and intelligence?
          I might say seditious thought for you, but the Anglo-Saxons are not the winners in this war in terms of military victories, but the winners on the part of politics, economics and further industrial progress. At the same time, how could it be that it seems like the United States fought in the anti-Hitler coalition, and fuel and lubricants were regularly supplied to the Third Reich?
          It was at that moment when the question of the Second Front was being decided that the Anglo-Saxons began to bargain with the Germans. Because in 44, unless a full down did not understand that the Soviet Union alone, without anyone's help, will squeeze the Germans.
          As for the Japanese ... so from the mattresses the warriors are still those ... I recall Operation Cottage ...

        The funny thing is that this nonsense is usually believed by worthless individuals who are of no value in any activity, and blaming everyone and everything that they do not succeed, who selfishly believe that Everyone owes them! IMHO

      And I remind you that the "AXIS" included not only the Third Reich.

      The fact of the matter is that against the USSR the EU of that time was led, headed by Germany, even the ROA was noted ...
      The United States and Britain have not experienced or endured anything like this.

    Modern Americans already know almost nothing about that war, they no longer even know anything about Vietnam. Demolished monuments. They do not know their story! And the people who do not know their history are doomed. Doomed to repeat the mistakes of past generations and commit unforgivable acts ..

    The United States Ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, clarified the content of publications on Twitter and White House Instagram about the victory over Nazi Germany, where only the United States and Great Britain were mentioned among the winners. He was “shocked” that these posts provoked an indignant reaction in Russia. Russian deputies and representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation expressed their protest.


    It still dares to be surprised !!!!! Well this is not some kind of Belgian one, said the whole ambassador in Moscow, which basically looks like enchanting rudeness. According to the mind of the ambassador, it would be necessary to expel in 24 hours.

    But at least well done, he admitted a mistake. But to equate us with Poland and France? Drive the current ambassador with rags from under my dogs. Where did we say something bad about lendlisse, at the level of Lavrov and Peskov .. I’m more than once in the winter and in the summer I went where the northern convoys went, it’s scary to imagine if the torpedo hit the side. The water is not blue but green from the cold. She breathes siertyu, two minutes and kerdyk. If I went out on deck to smoke and suddenly in memory "The convoy was drawn" an extinguished cigarette overboard and in a warm cabin. Death in the Barentsukha’s water is terrible. We remember the crews of the dead ships and their eternal memory !!!

    What is the correspondence of the story? The greatest tank battle is in North Africa. Without Midway, no one would have won WWII. Hiroshima and Nagasaki for the experiment. For reference - a statement by the British - under Prokhorovka, the Nazis lost only 5 TANKS !!!!!!!!!

      5 tanks is, of course, blatant nonsense. But here, I must say, we were somewhat disingenuous - their losses were underestimated, the German overstated. In fact, our losses near Prokhorovka were probably more than one and a half times. The T-34 was difficult to fight with the Tigers, there were few ISs. But still, in the end, the Tigers were mostly burned, albeit with great difficulty, and the German offensive was frustrated. Not without reason Hitler repeatedly postponed the beginning of the operation due to the unavailability of the Tigers.

    There is not the slightest doubt that in the end this total amnesia, including the complete oblivion of the specific statements of Roosevelt and Churchill, as well as the fact of presenting the sword to the defenders of Stalingrad on behalf of King George, will come out to rewriters sideways. In addition to empty talk, they have nothing for their souls. No documents. You can’t lie forever. If the ambassador reaches the level of the tabloid, then its price is low. This means that his understanding of other issues is at the same level, and he incorrectly informs the president and congress.
