      To be honest, young people no longer understand what kind of war and what is at stake in general.

        When my daughter went to kindergarten, they periodically had military-patriotic classes. While we were driving, she told me all the way recklessly (childishly naturally) about the Blockade, soldier defense of Leningrad. It was very pleasant to listen to that. good At least something will remain in the heads of our children.

          The Ministry of Defense has launched a new multimedia project dedicated to the memory of the soldiers who died on the fields of the Great Patriotic War. The project, called "Memory Stronger Than Granite," tells about memorials in honor of Soviet soldiers.

          It has long been necessary to do this!

          Many times I have already written comments and posted relevant videos about Katyn.
          When will the leadership of Russia hear their people, hear their slandered pain for their grandfathers and fathers, as well as fear for their children for their young generation ?! Probably never!!!
          And what do you order us, ordinary Russians, "respected" representatives of the Russian government, to do?
          Why do we, Russians, need such henpecked Westerners ?!

            And with the unknown burials of the spacecraft warriors near Smolensk on the territory of the false memorial to the executed Polish officers allegedly with the honors of the NKVD, but in fact the Germans in Katyn - in the same Mednoye, when the Ministry of Defense and the government of the Russian Federation, including the president of the country, will restore JUSTICE? Probably never!

            In the Tver region, 30 kilometers from Tver, there is a memorial complex "Mednoe". Visitors to Mednoye are assured that the remains of more than 6 thousand Polish prisoners of war who were allegedly shot by the NKVD in the spring of 1940 in Kalinin, but in fact shot in the fall of 1941 by the Nazi invaders, lie in this place.
            There is a similar memorial in the Smolensk region (Katyn).

            In addition, in the period from 1941 to 1943, there were several hospitals in the area of ​​the village of Mednoe. The Soviet soldiers of the 29th Army, who died from wounds in the medical battalions, were also buried there. And in the place where the Polish memorial is now located, there was a collection point for the bodies of the Red Army soldiers who died in battles, whose memory has not yet been immortalized. In 2006, representatives of the Union of Soviet Officers erected a marble slab on the territory of the Mednovsky memorial in memory of the Soviet soldiers of the 29th Army who fell in battle. But soon the slab mysteriously disappeared.

            When will the dead and buried in the same Mednoye Soviet soldiers, our privates and officers of the spacecraft, wait from the authorities of the Russian Federation at least a WORTHY monument in their honor and respect from the Russian authorities and descendants ?!

        Young people intelligently ask:
        What are the results for 2021:
        1. Is the world's first state of workers and peasants preserved?
        2. Have the ideals for which the ancestors went into battle have survived?
        3. Is Ukraine liberated from the Nazis?
        4. Is the capitalist enemy on the distant frontiers in central Europe?
        5. Did you treat the war veterans fairly?
        6. Does everything that veterans have restored and built after the war belong and serve the Soviet people?

      I was looking for the traces of the dead uncles for my mother. Also found one burial site. In Belarus.
      As it turned out, in '84 he was on a business trip and lived for several days an hour's drive from that place.
      But I didn't know then. It seems to be not to blame, but conscience still torments.

      Buried humanly. And I can't find my grandfather. The officer died at 44 m in Belarus, but where he was buried is not known. The book of memory says he died in battle. The burial place is not specified in the memorial.

    They are doing everything right! As one veteran of the Great Patriotic War said to his grandson, standing in front of the monument to the unknown soldier .. "Granddaughter, forget this war, get even more bloody ..."
    Everything goes to this, our young people are processed in social networks. Preparing another cannon fodder for the world's usurers .. God forbid! soldier

    Plates with names are, of course, good, but when the dead are mainly looking for volunteers, without receiving any help from the state, when the last veterans die in bestial conditions, when the authorities openly rewrite history, trying to introduce religion and persona into the war and try to excommunicate victories of the Soviet power - it immediately becomes clear that all these projects and other big words are just cheap PR. True memory is how the United States treats its contribution to the war. There really - no one is forgotten and nothing is forgotten. And in our country they strive to forget inconvenient facts and inconvenient personalities.

          There are no complaints about the church itself. But the church and Gagarin are together, this is somewhat strange. Another would have portrayed Marx with a synagogue.
          Everything has its place.

        More St. George's ribbon. I respect her, as well as the St. George Medal.
        But what does it have to do with the Second World War?
        Only the Guards tape. My grandfather was very proud of the Guards badge, having 5 military orders (two of them were Alexander Nevsky).

        The difference between the Georgievskaya and the Guards tapes is very insignificant. But the Soviet award ribbon could not be called "St. George's", because:
        George is a martyr, and the reward for the living should evoke positive associations;
        there should be no connection with the tsarist times, so thoroughly forgotten and abused;
        there should be no connection with the church and the saints.

    It's time to be.
    Only last year I found a mass grave where my grandfather was buried in 43, and not in the wild steppe or swampy forests, not abroad, but in the suburb of St. Petersburg, the village of Metallostroy.
    And only thanks to the fact that these documents began to be declassified and posted on the Internet.
    So, thanks to those who are engaged in this work, and do not believe the skeptics that, they say, no one needs it. Even if a hundred people in the country need it (which, of course, is not so) - we must continue!

    A fundamentally wrong interpretation! It speaks only of the period of the Second World War, although here there is a confrontation between the collective West and our country. We need to talk not just about scattered parts of history, but about a complete assembled puzzle until 2021! The West wanted and wants to destroy Russian civilization! WWII is only a small part of the destruction of the Russian. Until there is an understanding that we are fighting for our future every second, there will be no intelligible understanding of the essence of the issue! Always and everywhere the West destroyed Russians, starting from Ivan the Terrible! There is a lot of evidence of this. The bottom line is always - they killed as many as possible, attacking us with enviable regularity. Moreover, all these wars were unusually cruel: people were destroyed in millions, burned, crushed, etc. But we are not, we are good-natured. We will drive out the enemies and do not even destroy them, we are sorry. After understanding these issues, there will come an awareness of all the negativity coming from the West. It is too early to sum up the results, this is an eternal war. While we are losing, the enemy is already at the gate. And some high comrades play in favor of this enemy, "open the gates", bringing negativity into culture, shoot some vague films with dubious heroes, change our mentality for the worse, educate young people in a bad way, trample our eternal values, etc. ...

    There should be no unknown soldiers!

    A.V. Suvorov is credited with the following words: "Until the last dead soldier is buried, the war is not over!"

    He pronounced them, allegedly, after the Battle of Rymnik, in which the Turkish army was defeated by the Russian-Austrian troops.

    After the battle, as indicated in various sources, Suvorov was reported: “Victory! The war is over! "

    To which, Suvorov asked them: "And the killed were buried?" "No, we didn't have time." After that, Suvorov is believed to have uttered those words ...

    What does buried mean? First of all, it was established the full name, not missing, not betrayed, not deserted. In the second place - the deceased, which means that during the war, relatives will receive a pension.
    Thirdly, relatives, fellow countrymen, will know that the soldier has fulfilled his duty, which is a matter of pride (without pathos).

    The fact is that I was able to recognize and see many scans of real combat orders of 224 SD, 55 and 67 armies in which my grandfather served, for me, a professional military man who was in those places on exercises in the 80s, it was very close and interesting. Both bad and good - everything is visible there, including how losses out of the blue were due to poor quality of leadership.
    All the more honor to the ancestors who did not surrender Leningrad, and won the Victory, which still greatly influences our life. Even Sobchachkina and Navalninskaya, who do not like her now, but otherwise they simply would not exist.

    probably a good idea ... but this is what we think ... but what will come of it? as always, probably ... it's a pity to attach a photo: on the 75th anniversary in the village they broke an old monument and put "granite slabs" ... one slab across a month in the literal sense of the wind blew away and turned part of the composition ... turning to different dung-houses, such as governors, prosecutors and other fertilizers did not bring any result ... the loot has already been divided, why strain ...
