To always remember: June 22 - Day of Memory and Sorrow

87

One of the main issues discussed by experts and ordinary people interested in history, in terms of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, it is connected with the following: why did the country's supreme leadership not react to reports on the transfer of German divisions to the borders of the Soviet Union? Why, when they talk about the attack in the early morning of June 22, 1941 by Hitlerite Germany on the USSR, do they use the terms "sudden" and "treacherous"?

On this occasion, heated debates, debates and discussions have been going on for decades. The experts evaluating the historical events were divided into several opposing camps in the "ideological" plan. Some are convinced that the Soviet leadership allowed itself a negligent attitude, "not reacting to intelligence." Others consider such statements completely untenable and claim that the Soviet Union was preparing for war very actively, otherwise Hitler's "roller" would have rolled out the Red Army within a few weeks and by the beginning of autumn would have ended up in Moscow.

Today, on the day of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, these disputes traditionally flare up with renewed vigor. However, this is not what this article is about. Today - that June 22 in Russia is the Day of Memory and Sorrow. This date in the calendar of memorable events was highlighted in 1996 - on the basis of the corresponding decree of the then President of the country Boris Yeltsin.

The Day of Remembrance and Mourning is a date reminder, a date marker. We all remember the millions of victims of that big war: about the soldiers who did not return from the front, about the ruined lives of concentration camp prisoners, about the partisans and underground fighters who sacrificed their lives, about Leningraders who died of hunger and bombing during the siege years, about the inhabitants of burned down villages, about those executed prisoners of war. The day of memory and sorrow is the tears of wives and mothers, which, perhaps, at some level beyond the control of science, are transmitted to our souls through generations. The Day of Remembrance and Mourning is an understanding of what a colossal price the multinational Soviet people paid for the peaceful sky outside the window today.

In this regard, I would like to note how the representatives of the liberal "elites" are trying to defame the Victory Day. They say that on this day Russia should abandon the celebration and mourn the millions who died in the Great Patriotic War. Or even repent ... For what? For the fact that the Soviet soldier defended the Motherland? ..

Yes, Russia is grieving, Russia remembers the enormous losses, the incredible grief and suffering that it had to face in 41. Only Russia always remembers this. And always grieves over losses. And there is a special day for this on the memorable calendar. And this day is precisely June 22, when everyone can pay tribute to the memory of everyone whose lives were taken or maimed by the war. And trying to link the Victory Day with this, when the heroes-victors who broke the back of Nazism are glorified, is outright cynicism. But let repentance come from those who trample the memory of their heroic ancestors, demolish monuments to the soldiers-liberators, mock veterans. It is high time for this to repent and remember what decisions were made by the Nuremberg Tribunal.

The war began 80 years ago. On the night of June 22, rallies "Candle of Memory" will be held throughout the country, flags will be lowered on state buildings throughout the country. All over the country, those whose relatives and friends did not return from the war will have an occasion in the family circle to remember the sacrifice and courage that were shown by each of those who, by their means, brought the Great Victory closer.

    Attention, says Moscow. We are delivering an important government message. Citizens and citizens of the Soviet Union! Today at 4:XNUMX am, without any declaration of war, the German armed forces attacked the borders of the Soviet Union. The Great Patriotic War of the Soviet people against the German fascist invaders began. Our cause is just, the enemy will be defeated. Victory will be ours!

        Holy war

        Get up, the country is huge,
        Get up on a mortal battle
        With the fascist force of the dark,
        With a damned horde!

        Let the rage be noble
        Boils like a wave, -
        There is a people's war,
        Sacred War!

        Like two different poles,
        In everything we are hostile:
        We fight for light and peace
        They are for the kingdom of darkness.

        We fight back stranglers
        All fiery ideas
        To rapists, robbers,
        To the tormentors of the people!

        Black wings don’t dare
        Fly over the motherland
        Its fields are spacious
        Do not dare to trample the enemy!

        Rotting fascist evil spirits
        Put the bullet in the forehead,
        Shore off humanity
        Shall we break a strong coffin!

        The country is huge,
        Rises to the mortal battle
        With the fascist force of the dark,
        With the cursed horde.

        Let the rage be noble
        Boils like a wave, -
        There is a people's war,
        Sacred War!

          It's good that now normal films about the war have begun to be made. The last film "Red Ghost": the plot is simple - 1941, the cauldron near Vyazma. Individual soldiers and commanders of the Red Army in small groups make their way to their own. The film tells about one such group. It has two commanders, a pregnant woman and two local residents as guides. Grandfather leads a group of encircled people to the village to the godfather, but all the villagers are killed or driven away. While the pregnant woman is resting in the house of her godfather, the group prowls around the village in search of food, and then a small group of punishers comes to the village to eat the barbecue cleanly and wash their commander-SSman. The encircles are hiding near the village, the pregnant woman climbed into the chest, but she was soon found. As befits solid and solid Germans, they carefully interrogate a suspicious woman hiding in a dead village and then decide that it would be nice to hang her under barbecue and schnapps.

            Sincerely - from the bottom of our hearts and from the bottom of our hearts - let us remember today all those Soviet people who, at the front and in the rear during the Second World War, at the cost of their life and health, defending their Motherland, the Soviet Union, their relatives and friends - and the entire Soviet people, heroically reflected and repelled the attack of their worst enemy - Nazi Germany and its satellites of the "collective West"!
            Light to them - the defenders of the Motherland - memory, love, respect and a deep bow from the Russians!

            22 June, exactly at 4 hours ...

              A very correct clarification. For some incomprehensible shyness, we are still talking about the attack only by Nazi Germany. But we must talk about the attack of fascist Europe.
              Even France, the conqueror of Germany, lost so many soldiers in battles with the Nazis, which is quite comparable to the number of French killed in the ranks of the Nazi army.
              Not to mention Finland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Italy ... and the "blue" Spanish division

            It's good that now normal films about the war have begun to be made.
            I'm sorry, what? WHAT movies do you think are good? "Penal battalion", "Bastards", "Tanks", "Citadel", "Stalingrad or They fought for Katya" ...? And a great many of such films have been filmed, there is no time or desire to list everything. And what is removed from the more or less normal?
            "Brest Fortress", "28 Panfilov's men", "In August 44th" sii ...... that nothing else comes to mind.
            All modern filmmakers boil down to one not tricky plot:
            The first is (MANDATORY) stupid, vile and bloodthirsty NKVDeshnik or a special officer by type never differs from a maddened maniac.
            2nd no less stupid commander, usually a drunk who, contrary to any logic, drives soldiers to the slaughter. Those who do not want to go to the slaughter from behind are shot by the soldiers of the barrage detachments, as a rule, the same NKVDeshniki armed to the teeth and dressed with a needle, even never soiled.
            3rd necessarily some kind of skirt (a signalman, a nurse, a tank repairman, or just someone who turns up) and the more vulgar and depraved the better. Well, of course, soldiers and commanders, instead of fighting the whole film, find out who will have this skirt first and in what position.
            The 4th does not show the war itself in principle (with rare exceptions, rare battles), but love and other passions unfold in all their glory.
            Am I missing anything?
            By the way, the Germans in modern films look much nicer than the soldiers of the Red Army, both in moral and strong-willed qualities, and externally and physically. And after that we still want to argue about how patriotic our youth are?

            On this topic, you can write a whole article, with a debriefing, why the Ministry of Culture has gigantic budgets for all this kinoblevotin, and for "28 Panfilov's men" they were collected by the whole world. Yes, it's a pity there is no time for such a debriefing.

              The 2002 film "Star" about the group of Lieutenant Travkin. As for the "Red Ghost" and recalling "28 Panfilov's men", we can say that there is not a word here either about the Soviet Motherland, the party, the Komsomol and Comrade Stalin. On the other hand, there are people who, instead of surrender or desertion, making their way to their own, hardly need political agitation. They have already made their choice, so all the talk they have about pre-war life, anecdotes, tales and stories about Nazi crimes that they saw. Dialogues have not yet risen to the level of "They fought for the Motherland", but already normal conversations, which again distinguishes it from almost all modern films.

                The 2002 film "Star" about the group of Lieutenant Travkin.
                "Zvezda 2002" is where the hysterical signalman, instead of receiving the most important message due to which the entire reconnaissance group dies, hysterically yells into the radio "we love you"? In general, the film is not so bad, but not without flaws and blunders.
                But the question was that you claimed that a lot of new and good things about the Second World War are being filmed in our studio, right? AND? So we were able to count 4 films together? What about the rest of the movie shit? And it is poured regularly to every May 9 and June 22. Tons of shit are poured every year into the fragile souls and minds of young people. And then they go and grill a kebab on the Eternal Flame, or, at best, take a selfie. I personally watched as on Mamayev Kurgan two young sluts were photographed in defiant poses against the background of the changing of the guard at the Eternal Flame. What is it like? To what degree of degradation has to be reached? What is it they call it, check in?

                  It's not about the films, it's the parents who didn't tell their children about the war. Because the parents themselves do not know anything. By the way, 4 films are already quite good at the present time. I remembered 5 more films, "Podolsk cadets". Its author "Brest Fortress" filmed, also without drunken commanders and sadists of the NKVDS. With "Red Ghost" in the style of Tarantino, 6 pieces of good films will be typed. Yes, not enough, but what to do.

                      Or maybe just admit the fact that the events of the Second World War for young people are already equated with the events of the Battle of Kulikovo, because their grandparents really do not know what happened there 80 years ago?

                  It is impossible to make a true film without flaws and blunders. At least this "Star". The truth is very cruel. In 95, the veterans of our DOSAAF committee, at that time ROSTO, were gathered at the service for a festive dinner. The veterans drank a little and began to talk and remember. Only one, with two Orders of Glory, sat and ate and drank in silence. I asked the chief about him, the chief said, knowing the personal files of former employees, that of all the veterans, and there were 12 of them, only he really fought, and he fought in about such an army reconnaissance group as in this movie, 50 times he went to the rear to the Germans and his specialization was a liquidator, that is, he liquidated the captured Germans after they found out all the information and involuntary witnesses ... our citizens who noticed the scouts ... did not trust anyone, the price of such deep reconnaissance is too high. cruelty. Is it possible to make such a film. This veteran did not tell anything about the cruel truth of a real war.

                    There were enough blunders in Soviet films, but these films are still masterpieces. Maybe the whole point is that the directors, actors and consultants in those films were real front-line soldiers, and not modern mediocre-glamorous scum, who even did not serve in the army and hardly know from which end to keep the machine gun?

              There is also a neat and tidy Ssovets who regrets civilians, treats combatants with respect, but does not commit war crimes and does not even think about them (T-34, Zoya). In general, such a valiant enemy who is not ashamed to shake hands (T-34). Abomination.

                In the T-34, the SS man looks like a normal and brave soldier who respects his enemies, but he alone looks alive, the rest of the Germans are like android robots. For example, in "The Red Ghost" the soldiers are not flat and faceless extras, each character is written out carefully. They are young, beautiful, constantly joke with comrades, love music and delicious food. Well, the fact that sometimes you have to execute someone, well, it's just such a job. War is like war. Some people really experience mental no, no torment, doubts. Some even feel sorry for the unfortunate Untermens, not for long, about a minute or two ... But what to do, an order is an order. And this is a huge plus of the film. The understanding that the Nazis from the Wehrmacht are like a real person - they can be beautiful, cheerful and even sympathize with you a little, that you are simply not lucky that they do not need you - it is shown very high quality.

Does it remind you of anything? And by any chance I shouldn't call you Kolya?
                  For comparison, look at the original (Soviet film "Skylark") and compare with this pathetic parody. Here in "Skylark" is shown the true attitude of the Germans to the Untermensch, when one lady is driving through her fields in a wheelchair with a whip, and our women are working around, which is what you want in life. Would you like to replace these women?

        Do not take away, how not to scoop the sea.
        Who believed that the earth was burned?
        No, she turned black with grief. As the cuts, the trenches lay,
        And the funnels, like wounds, are gaping.
        Bare Nerves of the Earth
        They know unearthly suffering.
        Do not write Earth to cripples!
        Who said that the Earth does not sing
        That she was silent forever ?! Not! It rings, moans are muffled,
        Out of all his wounds, outlets,
        After all, the Earth is our soul,
        Boots do not trample the soul! Who Said The Earth Is Dead?
        No, she lurked for a while.

          Good-bye, boys!

          Ah war, what did you do mean:
          Our yards have become quiet,
          Our boys raised their heads,
          They matured for the time being,

          On the doorstep barely loomed
          And they went after the soldier - the soldier ...
          Goodbye boys! Boys,
          Try to go back

          No, don't hide, you be high
          Do not spare any bullets or grenades,
          And you do not spare yourself, and yet
          Try to go back.

          Oh war, what have you done vile:
          Instead of weddings - parting and smoke.
          Our girls dresses are white
          Give away their sisters.

          Boots - well, where can you get to from them?
          Yes, green wings chase ...
          You don't give a damn about the gossips girls
          We will settle scores with them later.

          Let the chatter, that you do not believe in anything,
          That you go at random ...
          Goodbye, girls! Girls,
          Try to go back.

    June 22 is a feature that divided our lives into before and after.

    Today they will lie to us on TV that Stalin knew both the plan and the date of the attack, but he sacrificed people, as usual. And the fact that the war was won by the socialist and atheistic state, the Soviet people, will be ashamed to keep silent.

    Watch Devyatayev's interview, they sang the International when they broke free, because they believed in the justice of their system.


    In Europe, they don't like Hitler, not because he is to blame for the deaths of tens of millions (many of the US and European financial tycoons need to be added there), but because he lost the war to us.

        If you listen to them attentively, you hear "Yaroslavna's cry", we wanted a lot of things, but as a result we lost a lot, and the Russians climbed up to us in Europe, and we wanted to climb up to them.

        and you don't need to tell me about
        Shame and Repentance

        For example, the Jews (allegory), yesterday Euronews twisted in the morning that the type of Jews was killed, the main victims and we are silent about the Russians.
        1. Most of the Jews from the USSR were killed by the Germans (+ their Jews were killed by Poles, Balts, Ukrainians, but not Germans), since they were ours. Russians were killed by an order of magnitude more than Jews, while the Russians resisted to the end, so they were killed, and our Jews were saved as best they could, since we are Russians, not Jews or other traders.
        2. Jews are nowhere loved not in Europe, not in Russia, and most importantly, no one admits it. But we all like them, and the Jews we like brought a lot. It's dirty politics
        3. I have a lot of Jews at work, but this does not mean that they are useful. Honestly, more harm.
        4. I have close friends, Jews, and I will give my life for them, they are friends to me, and for any faith and nationality who, together with my Russian people, love and cannot imagine themselves without my and their Motherland = Russia. But there is a BUT !. Jewish friends, I believe in it will not betray me, and the rest of the Jews, Ukrainians for example, yes with pleasure.

        Now think about the Europeans, they are only afraid of us, but words for them are an empty phrase.

      I propose to listen to the radio station "Echo of Moscow", where the dead assassin ... ok Suvorov is the main expert on the Second World War ...

      Not long ago, the former Minister of Culture Medinsky was invited on the RTVi TV channel, which is a subdivision of Echo of Moscow on television. The interview was taken by Kandelaki. Lord, how pitiful and helpless Medinsky looked. He mumbled something about the beginning of the Second World War, worse than a student-poor student. But he calls himself a historian and even has a degree. And before that, this Suvorov performed there. So this mud on Stalin and the RCA poured so ingeniously that I thought, if Suvorov had Medinsky in front of him, he would not have been able to resist the lies of this Suvorov. He would sit with his mouth open and again would only bellow. I'm talking about the fact that the corporation of the fifth column of Echo of Moscow and its subdivisions on television knows perfectly well which of the so-called Kremlin historians to invite, so that they cannot be convincing in front of such obvious falsifiers of history, such as this certain Suvorov. After all, they will not invite Echo of Moscow such historians as Zhukov, Fursov, or Spitsyn, but invite Medinsky and others like him, so that they could not shut their mouths to those who shit on Stalin and the Red Army.
      So this Suvorov has already become a collective image of the fifth column, which is shitting on the history of Russia. This image also contains Svanidze, Shenderovich, Kolesnikov, etc., which do not crawl out of the RTVi screens. But what finally "killed" me was the fact that Zakharova, the Director of Information and Press of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, spoke to the same Kandelaki on RTVi yesterday. First, Zakharova did not appear convincing in answering provocative geopolitical questions. Secondly, why the hell did Zakharova even flop into this nest of Russophobes ...

    By the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin of June 8, 1996 No. 857 in Russia, June 22 was declared the "Day of Memory and Mourning."
    Here are Yeltsin's supporters and got out. For some reason, there was no day of mourning in the USSR. Well, Yeltsin is understandably ordered to establish such a day. Looks like now the owners have not changed.
    Only on May 9 there was a minute of silence. Well, you have to figure it out after you have won the day of the attack. The veterans, as they said, but many innocent people died, but we won ..

      But it should be 2 days.
      May 9 - VICTORY DAY. And it should not be overshadowed by ANYTHING - it should be a day of pride and joy and everything is a POINT.
      and June 22 is a day of remembrance, we just have to remember all the fallen and the treachery of the enemy.

          Regarding the "holiday with tears in my eyes" I said only my personal opinion should be divided on 22 and 9. What would be May 9 the tears were tears of joy.... And then, immediately after the war, it was impossible: for 4 years, joy and sorrow went hand in hand. But this is not a subject for controversy, you can argue with logical arguments (well, that's how I was taught), but this area of ​​feelings is a purely personal thing.

    Unfortunately, we will never know the whole truth, and we can only guess about some of the events and their causes. But it seems that it was not without betrayal. There are too many questions that have no answers.
    Why were the planes placed wing-to-wing at airfields, along a ruler, and at the same time not refueled and loaded with ammunition? Who prevented them from being transferred to dispersal airfields?
    Why were the sights removed from the guns and sent to centralized warehouses? Why were the shells stored separately and away from the artillery units?
    Who drove the tanks on marches under their own power and used up the service life before they managed to meet the enemy?
    Why in some units more than half of the commanders were dismissed from the unit on Sunday?

    And these are just the most obvious questions.
    Oh, Pavlov was not shot in vain. They just didn't shoot for mistakes. In 1942, Timoshenko and Khrushch, near Kharkov, fired no less, and, as it were, no more, but they did not shoot them. Tymoshenko was later awarded the Order of Victory and a funeral at the Kremlin wall, and Khrushch finally climbed into the general secretaries, and hung Stalin with the labels of a tyrant and executioner, and, among other things, accused that too many commanders were shot, and because of this, they say, all the failures of the start of the war. Or maybe, on the contrary, did not shoot a little? Maybe if someone had been identified in time, and there would have been no questions above?

      Timoshenko and Khrushchev made mistakes during the war (by the way, by that time all the top commanders had already made enough mistakes at their posts - should they shoot everyone?). In the course of the PERFORMANCE, albeit erroneous, but some actions.
      Pavlov's work is somewhat different:
      Pavlov on the evening of June 21 was not at the front-line command post, where he was supposed to be according to all official and human laws, but watched the performance in the District Officers' House together with the commanders of his headquarters. It is not surprising that on the morning of June 22, both he and his headquarters "lost control" of the units of the district, giving them the right to fight at their own discretion.

      That evening, the command of the 4th Army also felt an urge to organize a party activist with a concert in Brest, where they invited all the commanders of 2 rifle and 1 tank divisions, who were free from orders, stationed in the city within direct reach of all types of enemy fire! Many of them were never able to get into their units with the outbreak of the war.

      As my front-line father used to say: "Any actions of the commander in battle are justifiedif they are boldly and decisively put into practice. "

      IT IS NECESSARY TO ACT, NOT STAND. Anything but inaction (and, of course, stampede).

      Khrushchev and Timoshenko (and other commanders as well) made mistakes. But they ACTION! Pavlov and the leadership of the Western District - STOPPED! (A few hours before the start of the war - we can assume that the war has already begun. If a commander a few hours before the BEGINNING of the war does not see the enemy's preparations, he, at least, does not correspond to his position, if not a traitor).
      And what about this?
      J.V. Stalin to the military from 18.11.1940/XNUMX/XNUMX:
      “Now that our borders have been pushed back to the west, we need a mighty barrier along them with armed groups of troops on alert - in the near, but not in the immediate rear».

      Why did the troops and warehouses end up directly at the border? Whom to shoot?

    Overwhelming force in a huge wave
    Enemies covered us, war broke out.
    At Dawn, when all people dream of dreams,
    They came here. To deal with us.

    The enemies thought that we were savages with a club.
    They did not know the background. Our deepest essence.
    They thought that our man was some kind of. genus.
    We thought: drunk. Thought: rabble and rabble !?

    We thought we were a shy wild tribe.
    Most likely so. And we turned out to be: not the same ...
    It turned out that this People is strong and ancient.
    The very People to whom you burned villages! ..

    The resilience of our soldiers knew no bounds.
    We left the battle, collapsed dead, prostrate.
    They did not give up, gripped by a powerful ring.
    Such go for a breakthrough with a brutal face!

    Such as these will not abandon their own in the war.
    A part of these people is alive now in me.
    A part of these people, it is in children and grandchildren.
    My People survived in battles and hellish torments! ..

    Whatever locusts come here,
    Whoever came here with a sword will collapse from the sword ...
    Whatever the enemy is walking with incredible strength,
    Our land will become his mass grave.

    All of our people know this, in cities and in the countryside:
    There is no other such People on this Earth.
    There is no country with such a tragic fate ...
    Nowhere else to find people with such vitality.

      DID NOT WRITE POEMS - AND DO NOT WRITE!

      I did not write poetry and do not write, -
      I breathe them like air.
      To them I, like myself, belong.
      I find it under the pillow in the morning.
      I did not write poetry and do not write, -
      I just translate myself ...
      (Nikolay Dorizo)

      I did not write poetry - and do not write!
      Better walk and breathe.
      Do not hastily grasp the pen
      Get away from the table.

      Do not rush, take your time, calm down,
      In the end, do something.
      Throw the hell out of pencils.
      Lie down in the back of the head and scratch.

      Cook the soup, cut the onions in the kitchen.
      Have some tea, fix the iron.
      Take apart the new TV -
      Look at what's inside.

      Spit out the window and get into the urn!
      Go to the operetta in the evening.
      Clean the floor, take a cold shower
      Read the upcoming Bullshit for a dream ...

      In short, do something!
      I didn’t write poetry -
      AND DO NOT WRITE!

    What I know from the words of my grandmother. The city of Kolomyia, Ivano-Frankivsk region. On Saturday, June 21, the grandfather, who served in the NKVD, runs home and orders everyone to urgently gather and collect the little ones, take only the most necessary. The gathering and the hustle and bustle take up the whole day, and it is impossible to leave on Saturday. In the morning sirens sounded and the bombing began, followed by panic. In all this confusion and hustle and bustle trying to catch the train, grandmother forgets the screaming mother on the windowsill and she has to return, leaving her older sister on the trunks. In the end, the grandfather puts them on the train and they go to evacuation, to the Kostroma region. They never saw their grandfather, he died in 1943. Mother was then one year old.

    In this regard, I would like to note how the representatives of the liberal "elites" are trying to defame the Victory Day. They say that on this day Russia should abandon the celebration and mourn the millions who died in the Great Patriotic War. Or even repent ...

    Well, such a leap remained, probably, only with Gozman, Chubais and Venediktov. Yes, and let them. Another action of the liberal elites is more visible: the products of its culture on the military theme. Such mass production of feature films in the form of disgusting crafts - and there is not much to see. Maybe I'm grumbling, maybe it's always like this in art: there is one masterpiece for a hundred rubbish. But before, it seems, it was different.

      products of her culture on a military theme.

      It's not just in plain sight. This is a big problem. And the problem is that it is these creatures that have flooded TV and movie screens. And it is precisely the liberal point of view on military events that is imposed on young people.

      Unfortunately not. There are many of them, well, not in comparison with our people, of course, but definitely thousands.
      Well, God be their judge, the main thing is that we remember.
      And laws, films and other actions of the state, it would be good, but the main thing here is the family.
      That would not break the connection from that generation of winners. And each of us is responsible for this ...
      I remember how my little father took me to Izmailovsky Park on May 9.
      I remember veterans who were not old then. I remember this holiday atmosphere and I will do everything that my children would remember.

    the country's supreme leadership did not react to reports on the transfer of German divisions to the borders of the Soviet Union? Why, when they talk about the early morning attack on June 22, 1941, by Hitlerite Germany on the USSR, do they use the terms "sudden" and "treacherous"?

    1. As in THESE CONDITIONS it was possible - so they reacted.
    2. Sudden and treacherous - to hide and justify the fallacy of actions in preparation for war.

    I always remember at what cost we got the Victory over another unified Europe. I don't need their conscience, I need their memory of what they did in the USSR, over our people. According to their laws, we had to destroy them. But we gave them the right They forgot it completely. Eternal memory to those who gave their lives for the victory of the Soviet people. And the long road to Victory began at 4 o'clock in the morning of 1941!

    Eternal memory to all soldiers and civilians who defended our Fatherland and forged Victory, day and night! hi
    I would like to speak about this, but a lump in my throat .. What was it all about?
    I read a lot about the war during the Soviet era and especially when the Internet appeared avidly of different opinions and on the part of Germans, Nazis, anti-Sovietists of all stripes and, most importantly, OUR comfrey memoirs (very few of them, they do not like to remember, those who fought really looking death in the eyes )
    How did it happen that they stopped this armored armada (in fact, the entire Nazi Europe) on the Leningrad-Moscow-Stalingrad line .. What happened, that they rested so much not on life, but on death (after all, there were no reserves, all were collected by the old and young volunteers went with one rifle for three.? Heroism, dedication, love for the Motherland ... Yes, and that too of course! But still, there was something else that cannot be explained in words in the soul of our people, that they are trying to understand and cannot in the West ..Yes, and we, too, in principle .. hi
    I always remember the words of a veteran intelligence officer in his interview with a librarian journalist .. To her provocative question ..
    What do you think, is the current generation capable of what you accomplished by defeating Nazi Germany ..?
    The veteran thought about it, and then clearly answered CAN! At the right time, something will work for them, something will click in their head, heart, soul .. Maybe the call of the blood of their ancestors, or something else ..
    They will understand it right away ..!
    It struck me to the depths of my soul, and he is right, an old veteran.
    There is something like that in every Russian soul! hi Judging by the memoirs.
    Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten !
    PS Stalin's organizational role was also enormous, he understood the main thing.
