Stalin's just wars

Soviet Russia fought a lot, no less than tsarist Russia. However, Stalin's wars were just - in the interests of Soviet (Russian) civilization and the people.

Spanish campaign


The Stalinist USSR fought a lot. In 1936-1939. - the war in Spain, where we supported the Spanish Republic. At the same time, Soviet military specialists and pilots are fighting in China, supporting Marshal Chiang Kai-shek against Japanese troops. In 1938-1939. - battles against the Japanese at Khasan and Khalkhin Gol. In scope and essence of the matter, it was actually the second Russo-Japanese war.

The war in Spain, on the one hand, was useful to us. Moscow, helping the Spanish Republic, diverted the attention and forces of fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. In Spain, many Soviet military specialists, pilots and tankers were tested by fire. On the other hand, Russia-USSR was drawn into this war by Trotsky's followers, fiery internationalist revolutionaries who dreamed of the "fire of the world revolution." This war allowed the West to present Russians as "aggressors dreaming of revolution." This war embroiled Moscow with Berlin, although at that time there were chances to preserve peace between us, to build an axis between Russia and Germany, which was never created before the First World War.

Revolutionary internationalists at this time still retained strong positions in the army and the People's Commissariat of Foreign Affairs of the USSR. The "Great Purge" has not yet been carried out. Stalin's main focus at this time was the construction of a powerful industry. Maxim Litvinov (née Meer-Genokh Moiseevich Wallah), who headed the NKID, was the main supporter of a collective security system that would unite the Soviet Union and Western democracies. He tried his best to make friends with France and the United States, although their "friendship" was not beneficial. He quarreled with Germany, our main commercial and industrial partner in Europe.

As a result, we climbed into Spain. They began to fight with the Spanish nationalists Franco, the Italian fascists and the Germans. However, Moscow did not control the republican government. This led to confusion and vacillation in the ranks of the republic's supporters, to anarchy and revolts of the Trotskyists. In addition, the USSR did not have a common border with Spain and could not provide large-scale assistance. Franco's regime took over. We got another hostile country, and the Spaniards fought on the side of Hitler during the Great Patriotic War. It would be better if the expended forces and resources were used in China to fight the Japanese. We didn’t spoil our relations with Berlin.

Winter War


Stalin realized that "fiery revolutionaries" were dragging Russia into adventures. Litvinov was dismissed in 1939. Moscow's foreign policy has changed dramatically. We began to fight openly for our interests. The Finnish campaign was certainly correct, in the national interest. Later, Stalin was accused of "aggression" against the small but proud republic. Like, it was the unprovoked aggression of the USSR. The Russians attacked the Finns, but were rebuffed.

However, in reality, the situation was different. After the collapse of the Russian Empire, a Finnish state was created on our northwestern border, which laid claim to Russian lands. The Finnish elite wanted to seize Karelia and the Kola Peninsula, land to Leningrad, Arkhangelsk and Vologda. Finnish nationalists made plans to create a "Great Finland" to the Northern Urals and even further. The Finns themselves attacked Soviet Russia twice: in 1918 and 1921. In Helsinki, they focused on our enemies from the west: Germany, France and England, from the east - Japan. It was planned that when a strong enemy from the west or east comes up against Russia, they will be able to seize Russian lands. At least Karelia and the Kola Peninsula.

After the catastrophe of 1917, Russia lost its strategically important positions in the northwest. The Baltics and Finland became hostile territories. Leningrad-Petrograd, the second capital of Russia, was under the threat of attack not only from the sea, but also from land. Stalin tried to negotiate with the Finns in the world, offered huge advantages, benefits to protect Leningrad. But the Finns, confident in the strength of their army, the strength of the fortifications, and help from the West, proudly refused. In response, we received the full program. The Finnish army was defeated. Stalin could take all of Finland, but he limited himself to lands for the security of Leningrad, Vyborg. Also, Moscow got a real idea of ​​the state of its armed forces, their readiness to fight in difficult conditions. Before the start of the Great War, they managed to correct some of the shortcomings. Also, the fall of the Mannerheim Line made the Baltics and Romania bow. We returned our lands in the Baltic and Bessarabia.

Far East


Our participation in the war for China's freedom in the 30s can also be attributed to correct, just wars. The fighting in China delayed the samurai forces from a direct clash with us. Japan is bogged down in China. The best infantry divisions of the Japanese Empire fought there. But they could storm our then rather weak lines in Southern Siberia and Primorye. A big war was being prepared in Europe, Moscow could not fight on two fronts, in the east and west. We were able to distract the Japanese from our lands with a small force in China.

The battles on Khasan and Khalkhin Gol played an important role in Japan's turn to the south. The United States and Britain at this time tried to pit us against the Japanese again. Germany and Japan with blows from the West and the East were supposed to crush Russia. It is clear that we did not need such a war. The Japanese hesitated at this time. Part of the military-political elite demanded to go north, to seize Russian lands to the Urals. Another part of the Japanese elite offered to go to the South Seas, Indochina, Indonesia, Australia and India. Resources there were rich, living conditions were easier.

In 1938, the Japanese conducted reconnaissance by force on Khasan. Marshal Blucher acted unsatisfactorily. The Japanese attack was repulsed, but Hassan left them with the impression that the Russians could be defeated: their generals were as weak as in 1904-1905. The threat of a major war in the Far East loomed. In 1939, the Japanese army began a serious operation in Mongolia, which was our ally. Stalin decided to use this moment to teach the samurai a lesson, to secure our borders in the East. Russian troops under the command of Zhukov defeated the enemy in a fierce battle. The Japanese were stunned. They faced a determined, proactive adversary. With an industrial power capable of exhibiting aviation and armored armada. The defeat of Japan at Khalkhin Gol was so crushing that they decided to turn south, which was a very unpleasant surprise for the Anglo-Saxons. Japan did not dare to attack Russia either in 1941, when the Germans were at the walls of Leningrad and Moscow, or in 1942, when the Wehrmacht stormed Stalingrad.

In the Far East, Stalin saved us from defeat and death in World War II. Thus, the wars with Japan in the 1930s and in 1945. were perfectly true and fair. They were conducted in the interests of the state and the people. In 1945 we took revenge for the defeat in 1904-1905. They avenged Tsushima and Port Arthur. We returned the Kuriles, South Sakhalin and Port Arthur. South Korea and China fell into our sphere of influence. The huge Celestial Empire soon became our "little brother".

Stalin's last war, the 1950-1953 campaign in Korea, also refers to Russia's strategically positive wars. We have inflicted a serious defeat on the United States. They buried the hopes of the Western generals for a successful air-nuclear war with the USSR. Soviet pilots and airplanes gave the Westerners a good lesson: you cannot fight the Russians. Washington saw that the newly created NATO would not be able to win in a land war.

The Great Patriotic War


The Great Patriotic War, the main superbattle of World War II, was just for all Russian people. We fought for our lives, for our existence. The West, represented by Hitler, sentenced Russia and the Russians to the complete destruction and slavery of the remnants of the people. We have destroyed the most dangerous and effective ideology of the West - fascism and Nazism. Russia liberated Europe. The Stalinist USSR created the Yalta-Potsdam political system, which gave the planet relative peace for two generations.

At the same time, Stalin did this not just for the quickly passing glory. We have returned many of the positions of the Russian Empire and even more. Poland became part of the socialist camp. The irreconcilable, thousand-year-old enemy of Russia became our ally under Stalin. The Poles returned to the fold of the Slavic world. Our sphere of influence includes the countries of Central and South-Eastern Europe. We have included East Germany in our union - another ancient ram of the West against Russian civilization. As a result, Stalin created a powerful protective barrier from European countries in the western strategic direction. Also, these countries became part of a common market, an economic block.

            Hitler was brought to power AFTER his justification for * Aryanism of the Germans * and the right to exterminate ALL * non-Aryans *.
            For Fin, as well as for other Baltic Poles, the Germans were preparing the fate of the colonies. For this, there were German troops supporting the German administration, which began to plunder the colonies being registered. The Germans shamefully surrendered and declared themselves the losers of WWI, which allowed the French-British to declare the creation of * independent ... * (insert as necessary) states.
            And yet, these * temporary * destroyed the RUSSIAN EMPIRE and began to raise nationalists, and then they began to divide RUSSIA into * territories * together with people between the allies in the * Entente *, and there were those * patriots * that were sold to the Germans.
            It is NECESSARY to know this so that different interpreters do not vindicate outright LIES, passing off nonsense as a * new reading * of what happened in reality.
            Amazing * accusations of non-Russianness * BOLSHEVIKOV. That the admirers of tsarist RUSSIA, that the Christians somehow DO NOT NOTICE the * non-Russian * tsar with his last name and his own god. But how they like to scream about * the dominance of non-Russians *.

This will remind of an anecdote about how Dodik entered the university. I passed everything perfectly, but the percentage had already been accepted and they decided to fill it up. Additional questions. He answers everything perfectly. Then they decided to ask him how many Soviet people died in the Great Patriotic War? Dodik - about 30 million people died. Then they ask him - please give him a name.

      A "just war" is a war "not in the interests" but against those who fight "in the interests." The wars waged by the USSR were not aggressive. These were ideological, class wars in the interests of the world proletariat against the world bourgeois Asia for the triumph of the ideals of communism throughout the world. The wars that were and are being fought, for example, by Germany and Japan, are wars for the expansion of "living space" and the world domination of the German (Japanese) nation against "subhumans", i.e. class wars, racial wars.

            article called just wars of the Romanovs? fool By the time of the events covered in the article, the main offspring of this family had been rotting in the ground for two decades. If you have a problem with the logic, I will explain in addition: neither Stalin nor any of the other top Bolshevik leaders cared about any Russian civilization. For the leaders of the young USSR, there was one definition - the Soviet people. On the contrary, the decisions of the CEC on the national question were aimed at granting equal rights to national cultures and language. This is where the well-known decision of the CEC on Ukrainization stems.

              exactly. When there is a dialogue with non-brothers on the topic of Holodomor and the Russians' guilt, I always say: look who led the Ukrainian SSR in those years and who was the head of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs in the 30s. If there was such a thing that the People's Commissar Yezhov, having seen the report on the personnel of the Ukrainian security officers in February 1938, said: "I looked at the personnel - this is not Ukraine, but Birobidzhan," then it is very indicative.

                To the snot of non-brothers, I remind them who led the USSR: after the rootless cosmopolitan Lenin, it was the Ukrainian Trotsky (a native of the Kherson province), then the Georgian Stalin, then the Ukrainians Khrushchev and Brezhnev, after the next cosmopolitan Andropov, again the Ukrainian Chernenko and the semi-Ukrainian Gorbachev. Objections that Bronstein-Trotsky are not Ukrainian are not accepted, because they themselves have registered as Ukrainians everyone who was lucky to be born there: the Russians Sikorsky and Korolev, the Armenian Aivazovsky, the Pole Malevich, etc. So the Russian people for almost 50 years out of 73 were under the rule of the Ukrainians and you can charge them both for genocide and ethnocide (Ukrainization). By the way, the Ukrainian Kaganovich (a native of the Kiev province) bears direct blame for the famine of the 30s. And other Ukrainians had those other fruits, for example, Mehlis (a native of Odessa).

                        German princelings and a narrow environment of incest are not related to the illness of Tsarevich Alexei.
                        The disease itself (hemophilia), in the XNUMXth century, struck all the royal houses of Europe, as a result of dynastic marriages.
                        In Russia (the royal family), the disease came from the English Queen Victoria - her granddaughter was the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna (wife of Nicholas II), then the disease was transmitted to Alexei.
                        The disease itself manifests itself only in men.

    War in Spain. This war embroiled Moscow with Berlin, although at that time there were chances to keep the peace between us, build the Russia-Germany axis


    With whom is the "axis-world"? With .... the Nazis? WHAT does the author regret? belay There are no words ....
    As a result, we climbed into Spain. They began to fight with the Spanish nationalists Franco, Italian fascists and the Germans.

    Not with the Germans, the author, but with the German Nazis. And they fought with them absolutely right.
    .
    We got another hostile country, and the Spaniards during the Great Patriotic War fought on the side of Hitler.

    You cannot write in the "History" section and completely ignore its events: country Spain did not officially take part in WWII, and volunteers on the side of Hitler fought not only from Spain, but also from France, Belgium, Holland, etc., with which the USSR did not have any conflicts.
    The Finnish campaign was certainly correct, in the national interest.

    And here they definitely created for themselves an evil, furious enemy (instead of a pretential neutral), who made a lot of troubles in the Second World War
    After the collapse of the Russian Empire, a Finnish state was created on our northwestern border

    BY WHOM was it created? The same ones who started the Winter War by correcting their mistakes 22 years ago
    Мы returned our lands in the Baltic and Bessarabia.

    Russia did not receive nothing, no m2: instead of the Russian province of Bessarabia, transferred by Romania, ... the so-called. MSSR, the same with the Baltics. What we have today.
    Japan did not dare to attack Russia either in 1941, when the Germans were at the walls of Leningrad and Moscow, or in 1942, when the Wehrmacht stormed Stalingrad.

    Well, what kind of attack on the USSR, when she did not have enough strength on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent?
    Russia liberated Europe. The USSR created the Yalta-Potsdam political system, which gave the planet relative peace for two generations.

    This is yes-the world is still without TMV, thanks to the then security system of the world where Russia takes part

    Only do it it was necessary earlier, в 1918 r- instead of Brest betrayal

    And there would be no WWII and WWII, the same system would not allow.

              It is a fact. The fact is that in the Second World War our military losses are comparable to the losses of Nazi Germany, and the total losses of the entire German-Fascist Shobla significantly exceed ours. The main losses were among the civilian population - 20 million civilians, old people, women and children, were destroyed by the invaders. The war was aimed at our complete destruction. They have experience in doing this, cleaning up territories from the local population, there are - American Indians, Australian aborigines.

            Come on. What an intervention, please. If the Entente really wanted to strangle the Bolsheviks, it would have done so without particularly straining. After the victory over Germany, at least half, but that there is half, a quarter of the Entente troops sent to help the white armies, and comrade Lenin and his comrades would be hanged in Moscow, at most in a month. There was no intervention, and no real help to the White movement, they were throwing dust in the eyes.

    Another tub of delirium will be thrown into the information space. Interestingly, the author considers the wars of Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov to be unfair, or one should expect a continuation personally about the just wars of each of the general secretaries and more...? And whose Soviet-Polish war of 1920? Lenin? And is it fair?
    By the way, the author somehow zigzagged through the Stalinist wars, mentioning some and keeping silent about others.
    In addition, if the support for Chiang Kai-shek in 1937, according to the author, was a just Stalinist war, then what is the Stalinist war against Chiang Kai-shek in 1934, and even together with the former White Guards? Is it fair too? And in 1946, the USSR again fought against Chiang Kai-shek, but the author again bypasses this war. Why?
    In a word, the mockery of history continues.

    Japan did not dare to attack Russia either in 1941, when the Germans were at the walls of Leningrad and Moscow, or in 1942, when the Wehrmacht stormed Stalingrad.

    Oh yes ... in the summer-autumn of 1942, the attack on the USSR was extremely important for Japan. smile
    The fleet has just lost a general engagement, loving two-thirds of the large ABs, and is being sucked into the meat grinder at Guadalcanal. All the free forces of the army are stuck in Southeast Asia and on the islands, with which the army is extremely unhappy (because for it the main theater of operations is China). Fuel consumption by the fleet and army is hardly covered by supplies (also because the fleet uses mobilized tankers as storage facilities at bases and as squadrons, which excludes them from fuel transportation).
    In this situation, it's time to open another front - in the north. It does not matter that the USSR has a group of 25-35 divisions in the Far East (1,3 million men, 12000 guns and mortars, 2500 tanks and self-propelled guns, 3200 aircraft). It does not matter that the Metropolis is within the radius of the "Fortresses" from the Soviet airfields to the Far East (FDR exactly in 1942 asked the IVS about the possibility of basing the B-17 in those parts).

      Who would explain whether Japan's feijoa was attacked? Well, well - she would have snatched Primorye, part of Siberia .. And - what? There is nothing there that Japan badly needed! No oil, no food, no metals - nothing useful ... So why fight for something? And even more so - to open another front ..

        Planets Siberia and the Far East. There are no minerals. There is no normal climate. Inhabited by the Red Army and partisans. smile

        More precisely, there are minerals. In the depths. And only those that Japan already have in sufficient quantities are extracted from them. And the climate is worse than in "inhospitable Manchuria".

        I'll tell you more - the Kvanutnts have already burned themselves with new territories once. This military-industrial association (army structures closely intertwined with the zaibatsu) grabbed Manchuria with joy ... and went into a deep minus. They got their first profit from Manchuria only at the very end of the 30s, and before that they only invested and invested.

        Even worse, in the event of an attack on the USSR, Japan will lose part of its oil production: during the battles, oil production on Sakhalin (including concession areas on Soviet territory) will be destroyed.
        Plus, the previously permitted fishing in Soviet terrorist waters will be difficult - because our Air Force will perceive any ship flying the Japanese flag as an enemy (this is not a fisherman, but a scout or patrol).

          An interesting topic by the way. Long ago I read a serious analytical article about how much the Far East cost us and how much its development paid off. Even taking into account the Kolyma gold, fish and other things, the minus is fantastic.

          I remember that this money could be used to build a house of 4 sq.m. for each family of 150 in the European part of Russia.

          Fish, coal, oil and timber.
          Since 1922, Japan has been producing fish and oil on Soviet territory - under concession agreements. Moreover, fishing goes beyond any quotas, and in response to all the claims of the Soviet side, EM and KR IJN come to help the fishermen.
          Coal is mined in Manchuria.
          And to fight over the forest, spending precious oil on it, is somewhat ... irrational. It's easier to buy this forest from gaijins.

    I will reveal a terrible secret to the author. There is such a law: Federal Law of 12.01.1995 N 5-FZ (as amended on 24.04.2020) "On Veterans".
    And there is an Appendix to it - LIST OF STATES, CITIES, TERRITORIES AND PERIODS
    CONDUCTING COMBAT ACTIONS WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF CITIZENS OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION.
    And in this List there is Section I - a list of military operations waged by the USSR and the Russian Federation.
    And it says there:
    Soviet-Polish War: March - October 1920
    Fighting in Spain: 1936 - 1939 years
    War with Finland: from November 30 1939 of the year to March 13 of the 1940 of the year
    World War II: from 22 of June 1941 of the year to 9 (11) of May 1945 of the year
    War with Japan: from 9 of August 1945 of the year to 3 of September of 1945 of the year
    Combat operations to eliminate basmachi:
    from October 1922 to June 1931
    The fighting around Lake Hassan:
    July 29 to August 11 1938 of the year
    The fighting on the Khalkhin Gol River:
    from May 11 to September 16, 1939
    Fighting during the reunification of the USSR, Western Ukraine and Western Belarus: from September 17 to September 28, 1939
    Fighting in China:
    from August 1924 to July 1927;
    October - November 1929;
    from July 1937 to September 1944;
    July - September 1945;
    from March 1946 to April 1949;
    March - May 1950 (for the personnel of the air defense forces group);
    from June 1950 to July 1953 (for personnel of military units that took part in hostilities in North Korea from China)

    Here are the hostilities officially recognized by Russia during that period.
    And all this is COMPLETELY NOT SECRET in the official edition of the Consultant.

    The Romanov dynasty, of course, the Russian tsars, they considered themselves as such and were proud of it.

    By the time of the accession of Nicholas 2 - they were never Russians, and, moreover, never Romanovs - in the male line, the Romanov family ended in Peter 3. And all the queens after Elizabeth Petrovna are German.

      Well, for example, the Hanoverian dynasty, which reigned in 1714, is now reigning in Great Britain. Something in my opinion there was no special pomp in connection with the 300th anniversary. It is inconvenient to remember that Hanover is in Germany, as it were. And they were replaced by the Scots after a bit of jamming of the Stuarts. Scotland was completely independent in the XNUMXth century, crayfish did not particularly meddle there. They'll kill you in the mountains from around the corner, and that's all.
      The Poles, too, now and then chose first a Frenchman, then a German. Elector of Saxon Augustus, King of Poland - Peter's ally in the war against Charles XII. The Bourbons are French, they were overthrown in France, but they still returned. True, not very long. And in Spain and the Kingdom of Naples they still sat for a long time. And everywhere such a picture is to invite people of a different nationality to the first roles. It's clear why.
      Peter tried to attract German princes and princesses, so that Russia in Europe would become like its own, and to some extent, for the time being, it succeeded. In general, at first glance, Pyotr Alekseevich was an ardent Westernizer, and what he had in mind about himself - God knows him. There has never been any other sovereign who would have cut and rigged warships himself. Tsar Carpenter. He himself planted oaks, where he could - in Kuzminsky Park there is one seasoned one. Yes, he did not spare anyone, but he did not spare himself either. It is no coincidence that no one even thought of assassinating the Bronze Horseman. And the Germans and Germans who fell into power, who resisted, were Russified, Mother Russia digested everyone, who did not end up badly.

      Here, for example, is an anecdote, or perhaps a true story, about Alexander III.
      He gave the order to sort out all the same way with the family tree. And they bring him the result that it seems like Paul is not from Peter III, but from Saltykov. Yes, you just look at his physiognomy and all the corpulence of him - well, a village Russian peasant, at a gathering he would. He crossed himself widely and said: - Well, thank God, we are Russians.
      Some time passes - they bring a new result: - No, after all, it seems, from Peter III Paul.
      He crossed himself again and said: - Well, thank God, we are legal.

      Believe it or not. And about "you can't be pardoned" the Romanovs were ready to joke - a peasant joke. But, unfortunately, none of them was really worthy of Peter's deeds.

      Again I got carried away from the topic. It's time for bainki.

It means that they learned to fight! And about whose interests the wars are waged - everything, as for me, depends on which system rules the state - if the state is capitalist, then in the interests of corporations - they need a territory for development and new consumers, if the state is actually a national one, then in the interests of the people ...

    Well, do not put a finger in the mouth of today's kids. It was during Soviet times that we observed discipline and sat in class with folded pens, and if you want to answer a teacher's question, raise your hand in accordance with the statutory order, as if in readiness for a pioneer salute, and do not pull up to the ceiling and do not yell from a place without permission. All students in the same uniform - who are poor, who are rich - are not visible in the class at first glance. In general, in hindsight, the school is recalled as something somewhat militarized. Again - a link, a detachment, a squad ... Formations, to go where - not in a heap, but in a formation, two people in a line. It is easy for an attendant to count, and no one will accidentally break away. So in this case, O. Bender had the basis for such a strong identification.

    And now there are two bugs for ten years and talk among themselves about brokerage and the exchange rate. What comparison can there be with the police and the military? I love Ilf and Petrov very much, but some of them are outdated. Although, of course, not all. For example, the artel "Intensive" on state subsidies. The worker is alone (a little boy in big, broken felt boots). The function is to pour from the filled at the bottom to the empty at the top. The working body is pure "ash-two-o". Forerunner of the concerns "Hermes", "AVVA", as well as MMM.

    However, something I have deviated from the topic. Overworked a little today. Various nanoparticles (on paper) flicker before your eyes. Heat transfer by hyperbolic exciton, understand. Got drunk on luminescent quantum dots in colloidal solutions like a pig.
