Day of Remembrance for Russian soldiers who died in World War I


On the first day of the last month of summer, August 1, Russia remembers its soldiers who fell on the fields of the First World War.


Although this worldwide military conflict began on July 28, 1914, when Austria-Hungary began military operations against Serbia, it was on August 1 that Germany declared war on Russia and invaded its territory. The same fire began, in which both the Russian and German empires burned down, and at the same time Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire ceased to exist. And if for most countries of the world the worst ended with the end of the war, for Russia everything was just beginning. She had to endure two more revolutions in 1917, which marked the beginning of the brutal and bloody fratricidal Civil War.

After all these events, Russia still managed to revive its single state, albeit in an abridged version.

In World War I, Russia lost from 700 thousand to 1,7 million of its citizens. In terms of the number of victims of this war, our country took second place after Germany. Despite the scale of the events of those years, the USSR hardly remembered them, calling this war an imperialist one.

Only on December 30, 2012, the Federal Law established that August 1 be included in the number of Days of Military Glory and celebrated as the Day of Remembrance of Russian soldiers who died in the First World War.

Be that as it may, these soldiers and officers gave their lives for their Motherland - the Russian Empire, fighting against the enemy invading its territory. Eternal memory to you from descendants. We remember and honor your immortal feat for the sake of Russia.

    Day of Remembrance for Russian soldiers who died in World War I
    Yes, a day of remembrance and sorrow. They died “for the Tsar, for the Motherland, for the faith.” On the eve of the abolition and death of all this. And rebirth to a new life. The end is someone's beginning.

      Thanks for the right words.
      The author was wrong, PMV was very much recalled in the SOVIET UNION, another thing is that the pathos * for faith, for the king for the fatherland * was perceived with irony. A very * odorous * inheritance remained from the king himself and from his entourage.
      There, in the RUSSIAN EMPIRE, there was such a Stolypin with his idea of ​​* transformation *, in which several tens of millions of peasants had to disappear as * extra *. The ideas of how exactly these millions of people were supposed to * disappear * were different, from resettlement to * may the strongest survive *.
      The idea of ​​* disposal * * extra * by means of war was very widespread both in Europe and in RUSSIA. It was this idea that was dominant in England, and in RUSSIA there were too many Anglomaniacs, from nobles to the tsar.

          Tatyana, this video seems more metaphorical to me. Although there is now
          an annoying logical discoordination - to declare himself the legal successor of both the Russian Empire and the USSR at the same time and then juggle it.

              Exactly what you should know the history! The Bolsheviks did not allow to destroy everything that at first the half-witted tsar fucked up, and then the provisional government finished. So it's true - LEARN THE HISTORY!

                  Have you heard anything about causal relationships? Or at all fool ... The Bolsheviks and the humiliating Brest Peace Treaty were forced to sign, but were there other options? Russia was loved long before the Bolsheviks, and they were able to save the maximum of the possible.
                  Once again, you need to know the history.
                  Indeed, you could use it!

                    Here I agree with you.

                    But with the surrender of a large piece of territory to Turkey in 1921, it is somehow difficult to accuse "damned tsarism" of this ...
                    But try it.

        * for faith - for the king for the fatherland *

        Our compatriots in the World War II successfully repulsed the first onslaught of the united Germany on our Fatherland, which followed, practically, the same as in the Second World War.
        If they had not fought back, there would have been no Russia.

        Honor and glory to them!

        Petrograd sky was raining,
        The train went to war.
        Endlessly - platoon by platoon and bayonet by bayonet
        He filled the wagon behind the wagon.
        In this train, a thousand lives bloomed
        The pain of separation, anxiety of love,
        Strength, youth, hope ... In the sunset
        There were smoky clouds in the blood.
        And, sitting down, the Varyag sang alone,
        And others are out of tune - Ermak,
        And shouted cheers, and they joked
        And the hand was quietly baptized.
        Suddenly, a falling leaf flew up in the wind,
        Swinging, the flashlight blinked,
        And beneath the black cloud a merry bugler
        Began to send a signal.
        And with military glory wept a horn
        Filling with anxiety of the heart.
        Rumble of wheels and hoarse whistle
        Choked cheers without end.
        The latter disappeared into the darkness of the buffer,
        And silence came down until morning
        And from the rainy fields everything rushed to us hurray,
        In a formidable clique sounded: it's time!
        No, we were not sad, we were not sorry
        Despite the rainy distance.
        This is clear, solid, faithful steel,
        And does she need our sadness?
        This pity is drowned out by the fire
        Thunder of guns and tramp of horses.
        Sadness - it is covered with poisoned steam
        From the Galician bloody fields ...

            And here is what the GERMANS themselves write: "Die Zeit":
            Even during World War I, German nationalists dreamed of creating an empire in the east.

            Chief of the General Staff Helmut von Moltke on Russia, May 1914: "There is nothing else left, how to start a preventive war and defeat the enemy while we are still able to withstand this fight to a certain extent. ”

            Chancellor von Bethmann-Hollweg :. "The future belongs to Russia, which is growing and growing and which presses on us more and more, like some kind of dark spirit. "

            Germany intended to get in the east. -Expansion of the German sphere of influence in the east to the Crimea and the Caucasus in order to "be able to get by land to Asia Minor and Persia." It is the Caucasus "in view of its significant reserves of iron ore that is essential for Germany." ...

            «Throw away Russia to the borders of the times of Peter the Great ”. The local population must leave the annexed areas and give way to German settlers..

            The letter of the heroically fallen non-commissioned officer of the 9th company of the 3rd battalion of the Izmailovsky regiment before the attack:.
            "Dear sister. An attack tomorrow. Before us is a formidable enemy, all covered with wire, but we will destroy him. I feel like I will be killed tomorrow. Don't cry, I will die for Faith, Tsar and Fatherland. "

            There were deserters in the First World War. But there were no deserters and traitors who fought on the side of Germany. And the Great Patriotic War, there were from 1,5 to 2 million: Khivi, Vlasov, policemen and other collaborators. So, what about "all the people" you got excited.

            At the very beginning of the First World War, Grand Duke Nikolai Mikhailovich presciently wrote on the pages of his diary: “Why did this murderous war start, what will be its final results? One thing is clear to me - huge upheavals will take place in all countries. I imagine the collapse of many monarchies and the triumph of world socialism. In Russia, we cannot do without major unrest and disorder. "

          Is it just the same? Or is there no difference between the collective farm (community) and the farmer?

            Stolypin relied on a strong owner (it's stupid to bet on an outsider) The weak had to leave, which is also correct .. Collective farms are a good thing, but only when they are voluntary.
            Stalin killed two birds with one stone by collectivization: he increased labor productivity plus facilitated the weaning of agricultural products and freed up personnel for industrialization.
            Stolypin, if his reforms were carried out, would have done the same (without taking away production, of course), but in a non-violent, economic way.

                Go to the cities and take a place at the factory, at the beginning of the 20th century there was a shortage of workers in the industry. At the same time, Google the economic growth of RI during these years. He was very non-acidic. Yes - new enterprises were built and old ones expanded.

                    In terms of industrial production, RI was in 4th place in the world, and in terms of its growth rate - in first place, in terms of GDP - in third place. From 1880 to 1917, 58 km of railways were built, with an annual increase of 251 km. Including the Trans-Siberian Railway, which has been successfully operating so far, in contrast to today's BAM. The number of transported goods annually increased by 1575%. The merchant steamship fleet increased by 7% over the ten pre-war years, and its carrying capacity by 32,1%. During the same period under Soviet rule, from the end of the civil war to 41, half the number of railways was built - 1956 km with an annual increase of 36 km.
                    Over the 15 years of the 20th century, the number of educational institutions in Ingushetia has doubled.
                    Over 20 years the population of Russia has increased by almost 45 million people

                        Not. Since the beginning of the 20th century, there has again been a slowdown and impoverishment of the population. In that socio-political system, revolutionary progress was impossible ... and without it, the country was and came kirdyk.
                        The sworn Bolsheviks in industrialization and collectivization stupidly fulfilled the plans of the Finnish tanks of the 10s .. More precisely, even their members were entrusted to execute ... Collectivization (mechanization + agronomists) was planned before the revolution ...

                    Is it the Soviets to blame? Could you give for comparison the number of factories built during these periods? Data on aviation, automotive, mechanical engineering, power generation, and for anything other than the ones you have barely picked up? You can also point out that RI was unattainably ahead of the USSR in terms of the number of nobles, peasants, etc. What a great country it was! Only for some reason the people did not want to defend her.

              This is speculation because 1) you are not Russia but a specific person 2) you did not live at that time 3) especially since you were not a person or a representative of a group of people making decisions at that time 4) this can be argued in relation to any state to which Russia has there were territorial economic and other claims, as well as vice versa, these countries had against Russia 5) and finally we do not currently have reliable sources in which Russia's plans for a war with Austria-Hungary would be directly prescribed (of course, I do not mean the plans of the general staff in which actions were prescribed and prescribed in the event of a war with any state) 6) and in the end, preparing for an aggressive war, they do not announce mobilization a few days before its start (although this statement can be disputed, I still think it should be based on the fact that quite frankly inadequate among the leaders of the country was not)

      Everything that happened after the start of this war is a direct consequence of the absolute unpreparedness for it. And the army, and the economy, and the country as a whole.

      And all the blame for this lies with the authorities of the Russian Empire.

      After all, there was already the "first bell" in the form of Russian-Japanese, but for some reason its lessons were not learned. And Nikolai seemed to deliberately try to rule according to the principle "the worse the better"

          This speaks of the standard of living under Nicholas 2. By the way, there is another interesting point. Let's open: Mendeleev D.I. "To the cognition of Russia" 3rd edition of St. Petersburg Publication of A.S. Suvorin 1906
          P. 9-12, attached.
          P. 11-12:
          "For the whole of Russia, taken as a whole, on the basis of data collected by the Central Statistical Committee of M-va VD (" Population movement of Europe. Russia for 1897 ", 1900) on the number of births and deaths, there should be no less than 15 people per 1000 inhabitants per year This assumption gives the following probable number of millions of the population of Russia by year:
          1897 128,2
          . . .
          2000 594,3
          "And for these five hundred and ninety-four million (and three hundred thousand !!!) all sorts of mega-intellectuals are tirelessly masturbating. Here, they say," Look, look, it would be a lope of Russians if not for the Bolsheviks! ".
          Moreover, this "forecast" is based on a comparison of only two years - 1896 and 1897.
          But the most interesting thing happened right at the beginning of the first section:
          Page 9:
          "Our census, as you know, does not contain data for Finland, but since this region, which has long been shown by history, is not able to independently exist for a small (2,6 million) number of inhabitants, like any Russian province, for example . Tambov (2,6 million) or Samara (2,7 million) ... "
          Take a look around, is Finland on the map or not? There is? Do you know why it is there? Because there was nothing for Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleev to meddle in his own business, that's why.

              Of course, in the scoop they did not like to talk about losses once again. The tragedy of the 2nd Shock, the Rzhev operations and so on, what kind of Day of Remembrance and Sorrow is. Let me remind you: a truly massive search work began after the fall of the communist regime. With her, the remains of the warriors were lying unburied in the forests and fields.

                Everyone in the USSR knew about June 22. And about the Second shock, and about Rzhev. There were no pompous events, but everyone knew what this date was. And the media did not pass by in silence. And the official introduction of a memorable date was required because ... ask those who are 40 and under what date it is.

                        In 1878, Bosnia and Herzegovina was occupied by Austria-Hungary. In 1912, the Mlada Bosna organization was created to liberate Bosnia and Herzegovina from occupation and unification with Serbia. The organization borrowed its name from the Italian revolutionary underground organization Young Italy, founded by Giuseppe Mazzini. The leader of Mlada Bosna was Vladimir Gachinovich (1890-1917).

    It was Nicholas II who plunged Russia into the First World War.
    From the "book of memoirs" of Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich
    About the beginning of the war: “In a conversation with me, he confessed that he could have avoided the war if he had decided to change France and Serbia, but that he didn’t want it. No matter how fatal and one-sided the Franco-Russian union, Russia wanted to comply with the accepted commitments. "
    And according to the book "RUSSIA AND THE USSR IN THE WARS OF THE XX CENTURY" published under the editorship of GF Krivosheev, the irretrievable losses of Russia - 2254,4 thousand people, sanitary losses - 3749,0 thousand people. and the loss of prisoners - 3343,9 thousand people.

        But he understood that it was better to beat the Germans on two fronts than wait until they beat the French in solo, and then, with reliable rear lines, they would climb into the Republic of Ingushetia, and they would have to be driven out again from Moscow and the Caucasus. The sobriety of such an assessment was fully demonstrated by the Second World War.

          The Army and Navy were not ready for War. The industry was also not ready for the War. The country has recently experienced a revolution (1905 - 1907). She suffered a “humiliating defeat” (which is rare in our history) in the War with Japan. Actually, I don't even need to answer you ... look at the "results" of the entry of the Russian Empire into the First World War, the collapse of the Empire! History ...

            So what? Was it necessary to surrender immediately in response to Germany's declaration of war?

            It was only because of the revolution that this war was lost.

            The ambitions and lust for power of the liberals from the State Duma and radicals from the socialist parties, who decided that to arrange the state, led to the collapse of the empire. a re-establishment in a belligerent country is just a great idea. The mistake of Nicholas II is that he did not send all this trash to Siberia to clear the snow, and not that he allowed the country to enter the war.

                On August 1, Germany declared war on Russia and invaded its territory.

                The blame for unleashing the war lies with the Germans, ask them.

                  Well, I’m not just talking about why on August 1, and not before, I was interested in August 1 formally. But by actually announcing mobilization in order to "protect Serbia from Austria-Hungary", Russia got involved in the war.
                  Or that we have allied obligations and we fulfill them, while other countries will not have their own?

                    Why did the Germans decide that they could issue some ultimatums to the Russian emperor or indicate what to do with their army on their territory? Nikolai, by the way, tried to resolve this issue peacefully, but no one supported him in this.

                        Completely sick? A big war in Europe was inevitable, and only complete people can think that Russia could somehow ignore it without damaging its reputation.

    The theme of the First World War begins in St. Petersburg with a recently erected monument in front of the Vitebsk railway station. The former Tsarskoye Selo railway station became the starting point for Russian troops on the German front since 1914. And the color of the infantry - the Russian guards regiments, also passed through these station platforms ... Three figures of Russian soldiers in the carriage - the teplushka - are an expressive symbol of the soldiers sending off to the front. I already heard that according to the current fashion, they began to look for some minor inaccuracies in the monument. But, I think, for 99,9% of viewers, the idea of ​​the monument is clear and intelligible.

    On the centenary of the outbreak of the war in 1914-1918, i.e. In the summer of that year, the Museum of the First World War was opened in the Tsarskoye Selo park complex. The Tsar's War Chamber came in handy for him. With attention and interest you can get acquainted with the exhibits.
