November 7 - Day of the military parade on Red Square in 1941 year

121
The parade on Red Square 7 in November 1941 of the year, carried out by the Soviet command literally under the nose of the advancing enemy, who earlier promised to hold his own triumphal march in Moscow that day, has no analogues in the whole world stories wars The parade had enormous ideological significance, and its successful conduct, called by historians the largest military operation, marked the first omen of the future Great Victory.




The enemy was literally at the gates of Moscow and was preparing to take her into the ring. Defeatist sentiments and rumors spread around the city that the leaders of the country had already left the city, and the enemy would freely enter it from day to day. In fact, preparations for the traditional solemn parade were conducted in Moscow in full secrecy under the strictest secrecy. On the one hand, it was intended to dispel defeatism from a part of the city’s population, and on the other to demonstrate to the enemy the readiness of the Soviet troops to effectively defend the capital at the approaches to it. .

The most important goal of the Soviet command was to prevent enemy air raids during the parade. To this end, a series of bomb strikes were inflicted on enemy airfields, and the sky over Moscow was securely covered by all the air defense equipment at that time. As reported by the Soviet Information Bureau, on that day 34 of an enemy aircraft was shot down at the Moscow frontier.

The solemn 7 parade of November 1941 of the year began on 8 in the morning - on 2 hours earlier than the originally scheduled date, which was announced to the participants in the last hours before the march. Parade commanded by General Pavel Artemyevich Artemyev. Marshal of the Soviet Union Semen Mikhailovich Budyonny took the parade.

To give the march an atmosphere of special solemnity as an additional measure for raising the morale of its participants and residents of the capital, all the stars in the Kremlin towers were uncovered and lit.



Following the cadets of the artillery school, infantry, anti-aircraft gunners, gunners and sailors on the snow-covered pavement of Red Square, the famous T-34 and KV-1 passed. Some units went to the front straight from the parade.

In mid-November, the fascist offensive against Moscow continued with particular intensity, some German units made desperate attempts to break through to the capital with the aim of conducting major sabotage on the territory of the city. In December-January 1941-1942 as a result of the counteroffensive of the Soviet troops, which began on December 5 of 1941, the enemy managed to push the capital's borders and force him to move to positional defense. Moscow was saved. Three and a half years left before Victory ...

        Locksmith Alexander Shmonov lives there, in the factory dormitory of the Prostokvashino microdistrict. Cochedi Shmonova respected, women love. He wouldn’t drink here alone. Almost a hero. He talks quite readily about his “feat”.
        “I planned this: I shoot at Gorbachev if he falls, I have two barrels, two bullets, then the second at Lukyanov,” the failed killer told NTV correspondents.
        - Do you regret shooting?
        - I do not regret that I shot, but I regret that I did not hit.
        Today, Shmonov claims that since then he has not taken up arms. But, when, as an experiment, reporters suggested he shoot at the target, he hit the bull's-eye from the first shot. From fifty meters! And then on Red Square, he was separated from the Secretary General by 46 meters. Http://www.kp.ru/daily/23995.3/78014

            Shmonov spent about a year in prison, then was declared insane and was sent to a psychiatric hospital for four years. After discharge, he was recognized as a disabled person of group II. While he was being treated, his wife divorced him and took her daughter with her. About a year later he worked as a plumber, then he created and headed the repair and construction company Ton Zoloto. According to avaricious information, Shmonov lives in St. Petersburg and takes an active part in the protection of persons affected by psychiatrists.

          excerpts from the book of A. Shmonov “Why and why I tried to shoot the leaders of the totalitarian state M. Gorbachev and A. Lukyanov”.

          “On November 7, 1990, in Moscow on Red Square, during a festive demonstration, I tried to shoot the Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU Central Committee) M.S. Gorbachev and a member of the Central Committee of the CPSU A.I. Lukyanova. I tried to shoot them for the following reasons (that is, I tried to take revenge on Gorbachev and Lukyanov for the following reasons):
          1. Based on an analysis of the literature, I came to the conclusion that Gorbachev and others were guilty of innocent people who were killed because they sought to increase freedom in the Soviet Union. These people were killed on April 9. 1989 in the city of Tbilisi and Jan. 20, 1990 in the city of Baku.
          2. Lukyanov, apparently, participated in making decisions on the killing of innocent people on April 9, 1989 in Tbilisi and on January 20. 1990 in Baku. Incidentally, he probably participated in this because almost all important decisions were made by the top leaders of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) collectively, and the top leaders of the USSR were the top leaders of the CPSU, and Lukyanov was among the top leaders of the CPSU (in April 1989 and in January 1990, Lukyanov was a candidate member of the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee).
          3. I believed that Gorbachev committed a crime in 1990, that is, I believed that in 1990 Gorbachev seized power (or rather, the highest position in the USSR) without the consent of the people of the USSR. By the way, I thought this because Gorbachev was elected president of the USSR in 1990 by the Congress of Deputies of the USSR, that is, deputies of the USSR were elected, and I believed that almost all of these deputies of the USSR seized power without the consent of the people of the USSR.

            Some kind of not healthy text. With a head, then surely not everything is normal with a locksmith. Although, it’s survived after a shot ... In general, I consider any kind of shooting of this kind to be stupid, which does not give a positive result.

        Would kill M.S.Gorbachev and his place would be chosen another. A multi-party system had already been created and little could be changed if there was no political activity of the population of the USSR. Everyone waited and hoped that someone would come and carry out reforms to improve the life of the population of the USSR.

          But it is clear that it is not long left. Recently, the observer of "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Vladimir Vorsobin published an interview with one of the developers of the concept of the future textbook. Readers were shocked: in the new historical and cultural standard there is no such thing as the Tatar-Mongol yoke, the Battle of the Kursk Bulge was called events near Kursk, and the Great October was completely canceled, replacing the Great Russian February. Some idiocy, no other words.

        Happy Holidays! Happy Great October Socialist Revolution! "GLORY TO SOVIET WARRIORS LIBERATORS"

        The law has not hardened yet
        The country is noisy, like bad weather.
        She whipped boldly beyond the limit
        Freedom has poisoned us.

        Russia! Lovely land to the heart
        The soul is contracting in pain
        How many years does not hear the field
        Cockerel singing, dog barking.

        How old is our quiet life
        Lost peaceful verbs.
        Like smallpox, pit hooves
        Ranged pastures and valleys.

        Silent stomp, loud groan,
        Squeakers carts and carts.
        Can I sleep and see a dream
        What about the spears on all sides
        Are we surrounded by the Pechenegs?
        Not a dream, not a dream, I see a wail
        With no sleepy gaze
        Like, swimming horses,
        Units are jumping after the detachment.
        Where are they? And where is the war?
        Steppe vody does not heed the word.
        I don’t know if the moon is shining?
        Or did the rider drop the horseshoe?
        Everything was confused ...

        But the gaze understood:
        Home country to the land from the land,
        Flashing with fire and sabers
        The internecine tears discord.

        By the way, today in the information program of Channel 1 it was reported that on November 7, 1941, in addition to the Parade on Red Square in Moscow, there was a 1.5-hour Parade in Kuibyshev (Samara) and in Voronezh.
        The parade in Kuibyshev with a large number of armored vehicles and aircraft was carried out specifically for the diplomatic corps, which was there at that time. The announcer added that "The parade in Kuibyshev was held especially for 2 people - the ambassadors of Japan and Turkey, in order to prevent these countries from entering the war on the side of Germany during the most difficult period of the war for the USSR."

        The military parade on Red Square on November 7 of November 1941 inspired the Red Army and the peoples of the USSR to mercilessly fight the fascist invaders. He confirmed confidence in the victory in the Second World War. Thanks to JV Stalin for this parody in besieged Moscow.

    On October 28, a meeting was held by Stalin, at which they talked about holding ceremonial events dedicated to the 24th anniversary of the revolution. The meeting was attended by members of the Politburo, commander of the Moscow Military District, Lieutenant General P.A. Artemiev, commander of the Air Force of the Red Army, Lieutenant General of Aviation P.F. Zhigarev, commander of the Moscow zone of air defense (air defense), Lieutenant General M.S. Gromadin, Air Force Commander of the Moscow Air Defense Zone Colonel N.A. Sales. Among others at the meeting, I.V. Stalin raised the question of the possibility of holding a military parade. The question was so unexpected for everyone that no one could answer anything. A military parade in Moscow was held every year, but in 1941 the situation was so exceptional that no one thought about it. What a parade, when bridges across the Moscow-Volga canal are already being mined, factories are being mined.
    I.V. Stalin had to repeat his question three times. Only then did everyone respond and speak at once: “Yes, of course, this will raise the spirit of the troops and the rear!”

      There is no doubt that Germany cannot withstand such stress for a long time. A few more months, another six months, maybe a year, and Hitlerite Germany must burst under the weight of her crimes.
      Comrades, Red Army and Red Navy, commanders and political workers, partisans and partisans! The whole world looks at you as a force capable of destroying the predatory hordes of German invaders. The enslaved peoples of Europe, who have fallen under the yoke of the German invaders, look at you as their liberators. The great liberation mission has fallen to your lot. Be worthy of this mission!
      The war you are waging is a war of liberation, a just war. May the courageous image of our great ancestors - Alexander Nevsky, Dmitry Donskoy, Kuzma Minin, Dmitry Pozharsky, Alexander Suvorov, Mikhail Kutuzov inspire you in this war! May the victorious banner of the great Lenin overshadow you!
      For the complete defeat of the German invaders!

      Death to the German occupiers!

      Long live our glorious Motherland, its freedom, its independence!

      Under the banner of Lenin - forward to victory! ”

      AND WIN!

        I’m against the parade of bad, I don’t say anything good fellows, but how it got hot, I immediately remembered Nevsky, Kutuzov, Suvorov, and they were noblemen. I saw that our long-suffering people need to somehow be raised. 2 Ularnoy on the Volkhov front. How many people will fall because of these thick-skinned.

    You look into the sky: the clouds tightened -
    As if God gave "good" for the parade.
    You look down: the troops closed ranks,
    And the clatter of thunder roars ...

    Suddenly, you see: here it is, Victory,
    Like Mother of God with an icon ...
    And as a widow - she’s dressed in a dark
    And leads, as if, columns ...

    A voice, like a revelation of heaven:
    - Your business is right, holy!
    Here is my blessing to you
    Win! With you I, with you ...

    You while Her - only see
    But Her, as if by mouth:
    - Our cause is right! - you will exclaim
    You will utter: - Victory will be with us!

    In the forty-first - fiery, damned,
    You countries are a father, leader and teacher,
    Saw over the defeated Reichstag -
    Scarlet banner ... Seer and savior ...

    Saw - forty-fifth, as in columns -
    Marshals will pass and privates.
    And above them - the army of heaven with icons ...
    Fallen ... But as if - alive ...

    The drums will beat out the shot ceremoniously.
    From ancestors - to Victoria are familiar ...
    Here is Nazism - standards will fall!
    This is your personal gift to the world.

    Strict, stately, to the limit ...
    Only once your face touches a smile -
    How will Suvorov in overcoats
    (You, to their fallen fathers, remembered your duty) ...
    -----
    Snow. November ... Clouds tightened
    The sky ... God gave the "go-ahead" for the parade.
    Ahead - war ... The ranks closed
    And the soldiers went in silence ...
    -----
    At a difficult time, the Savior comes into the world.
    Waiting for Calvary - on the road of duty ...
    Immortality ahead, conqueror
    Life forever - in the memory of posterity ...

    Speech, Chairman of the GKO, Supreme Commander-in-Chief and People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR I.V. Stalin:

    “Comrade Red Army and Red Navy, commanders and political workers, workers and workers, collective farmers and collective farmers, intelligent workers, brothers and sisters in the rear of our enemy, temporarily fell under the yoke of the German robbers, our glorious partisans and partisans, destroying the rear of the German invaders!

    On behalf of the Soviet Government and our Bolshevik Party, I greet you and congratulate you on the 24th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution.

    Comrades! In difficult conditions, today it is necessary to celebrate the 24th anniversary of the October Revolution. The treacherous attack of the German robbers and the war imposed on us created a threat to our country. We temporarily lost a number of regions, the enemy found himself at the gates of Leningrad and Moscow. The enemy hoped that after the first strike our army would be dispersed, our country would be brought to its knees. But the enemy miscalculated miserably. Despite temporary setbacks, our army and our fleet heroically repulse the enemy’s attacks throughout the front, inflicting heavy damage on him, and our country — our entire country — organized into a single military camp in order to defeat the German invaders with our army and our fleet .

    There were days when our country was in an even more difficult situation. Remember the year 1918 when we celebrated the first anniversary of the October Revolution. Three quarters of our country were then in the hands of foreign interventionists. Ukraine, the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Urals, Siberia, the Far East were temporarily lost by us. We did not have allies, we did not have the Red Army - we just started to create it, there was not enough bread, not enough weapons, not enough uniforms. 14 states then pressed upon our country. But we did not lose heart, did not lose heart. In the fire of war, we then organized the Red Army and turned our country into a military camp. The spirit of the great Lenin then inspired us to war against the invaders. And what? We defeated the interventionists, recaptured all the lost territories, and achieved victory.

    Now the situation in our country is much better than 23 years ago. Our country is many times richer now in industry, and food, and raw materials than 23 years ago. We now have allies, holding with us a united front against the German invaders. We now have the sympathy and support of all the peoples of Europe who have fallen under the yoke of Hitler's tyranny. We now have a wonderful army and a wonderful fleet, standing upright for the freedom and independence of our Motherland. We have no serious shortage of food, weapons, or uniforms. Our entire country, all the peoples of our country support our army, our fleet, helping them defeat the invading hordes of German fascists. Our human reserves are inexhaustible. The spirit of the great Lenin and its victorious banner now inspire us to the Patriotic War in the same way as 23 years ago.

    Is there any doubt that we can and must defeat the German invaders?

    The enemy is not as strong as some frightened intellectuals portray him. The devil is not so terrible as he is painted. Who can deny that our Red Army has repeatedly stampeded the vaunted German troops? Judging not by the boastful statements of German propagandists, but by the actual situation of Germany, it will not be difficult to understand that the Nazi invaders are facing a catastrophe. In Germany, hunger and impoverishment now reign, in 4 months of the war Germany lost 4,5 million soldiers, Germany is bleeding, its human resources are running out, the spirit of indignation takes hold not only of the peoples of Europe who have fallen under the yoke of the German invaders, but also of the German people themselves, who does not see the end of the war. The German invaders are straining their last forces.

          And thank you.
          In general, the theme of the Great Patriotic War, from childhood for me, and not only for me, was special, but over the years I began to understand, more precisely, to realize that it was a completely different war, that it was possible to stop the enemy, and even what enemy captured the floor country, and stop it near Moscow, after this parade on November 7, and then the grandiose battle of Stalingrad, the Kursk Bulge, and the Great Victory, the capture of Berlin!
          How was it possible to unite so many peoples, of course, at the head of the Russian people, but all as a single people stood up to defend their homeland when men were at the front, and women, old people and children in the rear, at factories near machine tools, in the field.
          In the cold, hungry.
          It was the heroism of the human spirit, Soviet man.
          And won!

    Quote from the article:
    The enemy was literally at the gates of Moscow and was preparing to take her into the ring. Defeatable moods and rumors creeped around the city that the country's leaders had already left the city, and the enemy would freely enter it from day to day. In fact, Moscow was in full swing in the midst of secrecy, preparing for the traditional solemn parade, which was intended on the one hand to dispel defeatism among part of the city’s population, and on the other to demonstrate to the enemy the readiness of the Soviet troops to effectively conduct the defense of the capital at the approaches near to it .

    As always in history, our people, having gathered their will and determination into a fist, managed to plunge the enemy in battle ...
    And until Victory May, the still long 3 year.

      Alla Voinarovskaya

      Forty-fateful,
      Moscow under siege and winter,
      The battles are long
      They bomb the capital, burn them at home.

      At such a time, pain and confusion
      Conceived by a feat - a parade,
      Decided many minutes
      Broadcast "Fritz" - the city is taken.

      And in this crisis of defense,
      The parade is like a breath of air
      Though the columns are fragmented
      The enemy that was torn to the east.

      The weather was also happy!
      Mela blizzard, frost grew stronger
      But the solemnity of the parade,
      Nobody violated anything.

      On fidelity to grandfather traditions,
      The orchestra thundered all over the country!
      Soldiers in columns came from positions
      Then back to war.

      And the enemy’s bombs didn’t fly,
      The parade was held in all its glory!
      They managed to stop the battles
      On a strip near Moscow.

      Do not shame the glory of grandfathers,
      And the whole earth rejoiced!
      There Victory began its journey!
      From the walls of the ancient Kremlin!

    Many people often confuse the concepts of "triumph and tragedy" because of ignorance. So, the Stalinist era is the Great Triumph of both the Russian People and J.V. Stalin. He spared neither health nor life for the sake of his country. He demanded the same from others. For this is the only way to ensure a joyful future for your descendants. That is why the people loved him so much. And the people cannot be fooled, the people will not cry in vain. This is a very great holiday, historic. Once again, all happy holidays !!!

Locksmith Shmonov has nothing to do with the 1941 year parade and discussing his mistake in the comments on the article about the 1941 year parade is not comme il faut!

    I do not quite understand the euphoria of some readers about this "holiday". What are you glad about, comrades? The coming to power of anti-Russian Masonic forces led by Comrades Bershtein and Ulyanov? Is this a holiday in your opinion? Or the rout of this Russian who followed this event? Or, perhaps, the brutal murder of the royal family? If not for Stalin, as it seems to me, the result of your "holiday" would have been the complete extermination of Russia long before the Second World War. For such were the plans of Trotsky's companionship. It seems to me that you need to be able to separate cutlets from flies. We all understand the significance of the USSR in history, we understand its uniqueness in many ways. But you cannot idealize him. The direct result of the Bolshevik coup was the establishment of a bloody anti-Russian tyranny, which destroyed almost the entire flower of the Russian intelligentsia, army, and clergy. It is clear that the February revolution was little better and would have led, most likely, to the same destruction of Russia, only in a different way. But to present the October events of 1917 and the coming to power of the Bolsheviks as a holiday - it seems to me, firstly, a betrayal of the ancestors, the best representatives of which were brazenly destroyed by the non-Russian Bolsheviks, and secondly, it is simply absurd, having already all possible information today about those events.

    I do not quite understand the euphoria of some readers about this "holiday". What are you glad about, comrades? The coming to power of anti-Russian Masonic forces led by Comrades Bershtein and Ulyanov? Is this a holiday in your opinion? Or the rout of this Russian who followed this event? Or, perhaps, the brutal murder of the royal family? If not for Stalin, as it seems to me, the result of your "holiday" would have been the complete extermination of Russia long before the Second World War. For such were the plans of Trotsky's companionship. It seems to me that you need to be able to separate cutlets from flies. We all understand the significance of the USSR in history, we understand its uniqueness in many ways. But you cannot idealize him. The direct result of the Bolshevik coup was the establishment of a bloody anti-Russian tyranny, which destroyed almost the entire flower of the Russian intelligentsia, army, and clergy. It is clear that the February revolution was little better and would have led, most likely, to the same destruction of Russia, only in a different way. But to present the October events of 1917 and the coming to power of the Bolsheviks as a holiday - it seems to me, firstly, a betrayal of the ancestors, the best representatives of which were brazenly destroyed by the non-Russian Bolsheviks, and secondly, it is simply absurd, having already all possible information today about those events.
    And the parade of 1941 - yes, this, of course, is an event that must be remembered.

    Every time they talk about the parade 7 November 1941goda - breathing stops for a short time.
    It’s hard to think about IT:
    - The country is in ruins.
    - The enemy is near the capital.
    - The personnel army is all in wounds.
    - The world is confident in the collapse of the USSR.

    And here - PARADE !!! Yes, immediately from him to battle !!! There was no such thing in world history.

    Siberia and the Urals stood up, the whole country fell under arms ...
    Almost all of them, participants in this Great and Real Parade will perish ... but - WIN !!!

    RESPECT, RAPTURE, MEMORY.

    After this parade, my father gained a year and since January 1942 he has already beaten the Nazis m.v. T-34. He ended the war with the foreman in 1945 in Koenigsberg.
    I am proud and educate my grandchildren on the example of war veterans.

    Why did you have to cancel the holiday on November 7? You can relate to history in different ways, but in the same France, with an ambiguous perception of Marat and Robespierre, they celebrate Bastille Day as a historical milestone in their history, the Great French Revolution. We have nothing to be ashamed of here, the Bolsheviks did not plunder the country weakened in the world war, but saved it from chaos, after the abdication of the tsar and the mess that the newly-minted democracy, loyal to the Entente, promised. It is hard to doubt that the "friends" - creditors from England and the USA saw a strong Russia in its grave. The Soviet Union, this pride left over from childhood for our country, a superpower, and the former confidence in the future, that not only a just peace will come on Earth, but apples grown by our Soviet descendants will also bloom on Mars. Happy holiday to all who care about it!

    My father, Alexander Pavlovich Semenov, is a cadet of the art school, accelerated graduation (three months), and since October 28, 1941, he already took part in the defense of Moscow. He is alive, he is 92 years old. We live in Riga, and we have one holiday in this Latvia - May 9th. It is a shame and pain that we could not save the Great Country! Thanks to Russia for not forgetting our veterans!

    Today it was broadcast on TV that instructions had been received to remove the Great October Socialist Revolution from school books. The next one will probably be Victory Day. Everything is numb to the liberals.
