Victory Day: Why was Baku not given the title of Hero City?

Without oil Baku, the USSR could not win the war with Hitler


The further we move away from the terrible war of 1941-1945, which took the lives of more 30 millions of citizens of the USSR, the more we realize that victory over fascism was achieved not only thanks to the heroism of Soviet soldiers. No less significant was the contribution to the common feat of those regions of the Soviet Union that, although not occupied by Hitler’s troops, played a vital role in ensuring the combat capability of the Red Army.

One of these rear cities was the capital of the Azerbaijan SSR. It's no secret that almost 90% of fuel for refueling Soviet tanks and aircraft were delivered to the front line from Baku. In wartime, there was practically no alternative to Baku oil. So, in 1941, a total of 33 million tons of oil was produced in the USSR, of which 23,6 million tons were produced in Azerbaijan.

In other words, the Azerbaijan SSR, which became the main supplier of oil and oil products for the Red Army, played a key role in the great Victory. Former Russian ambassador to Azerbaijan, Vasily Istratov, admits: “Without the natural resources of Azerbaijan, there would be no victory in the Great Patriotic War.” And Marshal Rokossovsky wrote in his memoirs: “In every raid of the Soviet tankmen, in every victory over the German fascist forces, a considerable part of the success belongs to the Baku oil industry workers.”

Nevertheless, Stalin, and later other Soviet leaders for some reason did not dare to assign Baku the honorary title of the “Hero City”. Only the cities of the RSFSR, Belarus and Ukraine, which were under German occupation and became the scene of fierce battles, were awarded this high status. However, according to many experts, Baku, given its exceptional role in the rear, was rightfully worthy of the name of the “Hero City”.

"Gray Cardinal" of the Stalin era

Stalin’s refusal to confer honorary status on the capital of Azerbaijan is largely associated with the name of his closest ally, Commissar Anastas Mikoyan, who during the Great Patriotic War occupied key positions in the leadership of the USSR. From 1941, he headed the Committee of Food and Apparel Supplies for the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army, and also was a member of the Council for Evacuation and the State Committee for the Rehabilitation of the Economy of the Liberated Regions. In 1942, by order of Stalin, Mikoyan was included in the USSR State Committee of Defense.

According to historians, it was on the recommendation of Mikoyan that Stalin organized in the late forties the so-called “resettlement” from Armenia to Azerbaijan 200 thousand Azerbaijanis. In fact, it was legalized exile, which was carried out according to the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 4083 from December 23 1947. It lasted until the year 1950.

Mikoyan, who was called Stalin's "gray cardinal", did not hide his negative attitude towards Azerbaijan. When, after the victory over Hitler in the Kremlin, the question of assigning the honorary title of “Hero City” to several cities of the USSR was discussed, Mikoyan strongly opposed the inclusion of Baku in this list.

In the next few decades, the leaders of the Azerbaijan SSR and cultural figures of the republic have repeatedly appealed to the highest state and party instances of the USSR with a request to reconsider this issue. However, their calls were not heard.

Red commander Hazi Aslanov

However, the contribution of Azerbaijan to the common "piggy bank" of victory in the Great Patriotic War was based not only on the oil achievements of this Soviet republic. Many Azerbaijanis then volunteered for the front - to defend their homeland. For four years, over 600 thousand people from Azerbaijan were called up to the ranks of the Red Army. By the end of the war, 128 natives of Azerbaijan became Heroes of the Soviet Union.

A native of the Sabunchi village in the suburb of Baku, Richard Zogh, being on the eve of World War II in Japan, was one of the first to inform Stalin about the exact date of Hitler’s attack on the USSR: the end of June 1941. Azerbaijan was glorified all over the world and the fighters from Azerbaijan: Mamedov, Ahmedzade, Berezhnoy, Andreev and Mejidov, who hoisted the Victory Banner over the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin in the early morning of May 9 2.

9 May 2013 in Baku commemorated the heroes of the Great Patriotic War. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev laid a wreath at the monument to the Hero of the Soviet Union Azi Aslanov. There were legends about Major General Aslanov in his lifetime. 19 November 1942 began a counteroffensive by the Soviet forces at Stalingrad. During the day, the tankers Aslanova fought over 40 kilometers with fights! By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR from 22 December 1942, Azi Aslanov was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. 24 December 1942, the newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda wrote: “History wars have not yet seen the fighters who fought so bravely as Azi Aslanov and his fighting friends. No matter how strong the enemy tanks and infantry are, they cannot be compared with the part led by the powerful, strong-willed commander, Hero of the Soviet Union Azi Aslanov. ”

13 January 1943, the newspaper of the Stalingrad Front, Son of the Fatherland, noted: “... how to link tank operations with infantry and artillery actions, you need to learn from the part of the guard, Colonel A. Aslanov. Let the combat skills of the tankers of the Hero of the Soviet Union A. Aslanov be a model for all our units. ” Tankmen Aslanova participated in the liberation of the cities of Belgorod, Sumy, Akhtyrka, Poltava and Mirgorod. 24 January 1945, Azi Aslanov died in battle. He was 35 years old ...

"Fearless Sons and Daughters of Azerbaijan"

7 May 2013 of the year in the Crimea, on Sapun-gore, opened a monument to the 77 of the Azerbaijan Red Banner Order of the Suvorov Simferopol Rifle Division. On his pedestal is written dedication "Fearless sons and daughters of Azerbaijan". 77-division participated in the liberation of the North Caucasus from the Nazi troops, then led the fighting against the Nazis in the Crimea. For the liberation of 13 on April 1944 of the city of Simferopol, she was given an honorary name - Simferopol.

7 May 1944, the division stormed Sapun Mountain, the key height on which the subsequent fate of Sevastopol and the whole Crimea depended. The next day, the units of the 77 Division took another strategic height of Sevastopol - Malakhov Kurgan. Then, along with other units of the Red Army, she liberated the center of the city. During the storming of Sapun Mountain and the liberation of Sevastopol the division was awarded the Order of Suvorov, II degree.

Ilham Aliyev paid attention to veterans of the Great Patriotic War

23 on April 2013, the President of Azerbaijan signed an Order on providing one-time financial assistance to participants of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945, widows of fighters who died or later died, as well as persons who were awarded orders and medals for hard work in the rear. According to the decree, material assistance in the amount of 500 manats will be provided to participants of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945, and according to 200 manats, widows of those killed in the Great Patriotic War or fighters who died later will receive.

    Each region in the rear has contributed. Now, if it weren’t for Baku oil and Khamjay mercury, etc. ...
    Did the front line pass near Baku, and if so, when? Did people work less in Tashkent? However, Tashkent does not claim to be a hero city, despite the fact that rumors about the "Tashkent Front" exist.

      There will be an article about Tashkent, write enough, why and how !!! In this case we are talking about Baku and not about Tashkent. Where did you find the word Tashkent in the article?! Instead of analyzing the contribution of the people of Azerbaijan to the Second World War,"led away" the topic from the discussion in a completely different plane.

          some kind of enemy liberal little article

          in his phrase
          “Nevertheless, Stalin, and later other Soviet leaders, for some reason did not dare to assign Baku the honorary title of“ Hero City. ”This high status was awarded only to the cities of the RSFSR, Belarus and Ukraine, which were under German occupation and became an arena However, in the opinion of many experts, Baku, given its exceptional role in the rear, rightfully deserved to bear the name of the "Hero City."
          the author of the article not only answers his own question !!!, but also shows the method of manipulation used by him to create this opus!
          the fact that the title was awarded only for feats of arms does not raise his doubts, but the fact that they were awarded only the cities of the RSFSR, Belarus and Ukraine is already somehow suspicious for him !!!
          only the enemy of Russia, the one who wants to bring confusion and discord may have a similar perverse logic

          moreover, the article does not stand up to criticism even from the point of view of the author’s perverse logic, I’ll explain what I mean:
          we have, for example, the t -34 tank on the battlefield, it turns out that the people who created the fuel for the tank made a much greater contribution to the victory than those who created it, meanwhile it is clear to any sane person that making the tank is a much more difficult and difficult task than making fuel for it

      Without specific ideas about what was happening in those years, it’s better to sit and look for the history of those events than to carry nonsense.
      The transportation of that oil was fatal for many sailors of the Caspian flotilla. Survivors were noted as participants in the war, although it was far from the front. German aircraft bombed them steadily at sea. One of these surviving sailors is my father-in-law. The kingdom to him is now heavenly.
      And you, if the brains worked, it's time to look for a story. How did the Caspian flotilla fight without contact with the front line?

      The victory was won by Soviet people !!! And I don’t care that Baku is not a hero city, it is a beautiful city with the descendants of those who ensured the Victory over fascism, shedding blood on the fronts and sweat in the oil fields and accepting evacuated citizens. I would be offended if Grozny became the hero of the city (Kadyrov wanted).
      Well, let Aliyev himself decree assign this title and everyone will calm down hi

    The oil industry of the USSR during the Great Patriotic War

    In July 1941, the State Defense Committee decided to develop a military-economic plan for the defense of the country. N. A. Voznesensky was entrusted with control over the production of metal and fuel. Under the People’s Commissariat of the Oil Industry, a special headquarters was established to provide the front with fuel, which was headed by N.S. Baibakov

    The whole industry was transferred on a 12-hour working day until the end of the war, without days off and holidays.

    The GKO Decree of July 30, 1941 on the development of oil production and refining in the eastern regions of the USSR increased the capacity of oil fields and oil refineries, boosted the construction of the Ufa, Syzransky, Saratov, Ishimbaevsky and other oil refineries. 2500 enterprises were relocated to the eastern regions of the country, 12 million people were evacuated. In Ishimbay was sent to them. Stalin, in Sterlitamak - the Baku factory of oil engineering "Red Proletariat", in Perm - the plant named after Myasnikov, in Sarapul - plant them. Dzerzhinsky. In the fall of 1941, the Aznefterazvedka trust was relocated to the Volga region; the well-known oilman A.F. One of the centers of oil evacuation is Ufa. There was relocated to the Moscow Petroleum Institute. I. M. Gubkina, temporarily placed People's Commissariat of the oil industry. Narcomneft was proposed to speed up the construction of a number of refineries and the introduction of new facilities, including at the Ufa, Saratov, Syzransky, Orsk, Ishimbaevsky and other plants. By decision of the GKO in 1941-1942. and in the first half of 1943, new refineries were built on the basis of evacuated equipment between the Volga and the Urals. For 7 months, a lubricant oil plant was built in Perm. In 1941, Kherson and Odessa cracking plants were evacuated to the Kuibyshev region. In 1942, the Syzran Oil Refinery was commissioned. The Kuibyshev Refinery was put into operation. By the end of 1942, a refinery was built in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. On August 31, 1941, in accordance with the decision of GKO, an experimental turbine drilling office was sent from Baku to Krasnokamsk (Perm Region), headed by director E.N. Tagiyev (the inventor of a multi-stage turbodrill), and the Machine Plant named after A.F. Myasnikov, who by May 1, 1942 produced the first batch of turbodrills.

    I want to say that it was not only Baku that extracted oil, especially during the Stalingrad battles, the Germans actually cut supplies from Baku, then the fuel mainly came from Bashkiria!

      predator.3 "I want to say that not only Baku was producing oil, especially during the Stalingrad battles, the Germans actually cut off supplies from Baku, then the fuel came mainly from Bashkiria!"
      I completely agree with you. Maybe they don't know about the "second Baku"? This was the name of the oil fields in the Volga region. Samara province, Bashkiria, Tatarstan, Western part of the Orenburg region. So oil is still being produced there, even if not in the same volumes as before ...
      And the cities of the Urals and Siberia forged weapons with them how? Are they not heroes?
      In general, the main thing in a war is the will to resist. I assure everyone, if there weren’t Baku oil in the country, we would have won. Before the war, plants for the production of synthetic gasoline and all business would be built.
      This would be if Azerbaijan did not enter the USSR. And since he was part of no one shared anything. And there is no need to share the victory. She is one at all. Therefore, all the talk about don’t be Baku oil to us is crap.
      And the title of cities of heroes is for a combat role in the war. And not for labor. According to work, the whole country should have been in heroes. Let's all the rear cities and assign .. hehe ...

            Seriously, their intelligence was not very good. So they went where they knew.
            And the "second Baku" has been developed since 1932, it seems, and in the 1950s 78% of the country's oil was extracted in the Volga region. Then the total production decreased due to the Siberian deposits. In the 1970s, up to 58% if the memory does not fail. This is me, for example.
            Although belittling the importance of Baku and Azerbaijan is also stupid.
            It’s the same nonsense to beat your heels in the chest and say that if we hadn’t had Baku oil, we would have lost the war. This I, dear SMERSH, explain my position. I hope I clearly bring my idea.

    I advise the author to read the status of the city-hero. If we proceed from the author’s logic, then we have a lot of heroes — almost the entire Urals (tanks), Mordovia (small arms), Omsk (radio transmitters for aviation and tankers) and other, other, other.
    Another thing is interesting. It seems that the already forgotten Soviet city hero is still relevant. And rolling onto specific soldiers and officers does not fit into any framework at all. I recall the Soviet era, Kirovobad (in my current Ganja) and a small Armenian village about .. . From which three Marshals and fourteen generals of the Red Army came out. This is also on the territory of Azerbaijan. I do not want to see the name of the village, but read to anyone interested in the biography of Marshal Baghramyan .. He is also a native of this village.

      Good afternoon Alexander hi
      quote from article- exactly on the recommendation of Mikoyan In the late forties, Stalin organized the so-called “resettlement” of 200 thousand Azerbaijanis from Armenia to Azerbaijan. In essence, it was legalized exile., which was carried out in accordance with the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 4083 of December 23 1947. It lasted until the year 1950.

        Greetings to Apollo. You twisted my comment. I wrote about Azerbaijan and the Armenian village on its territory. And not about the resettled Azerbaijanis. This is not correct on your part.
        And it seems to me that the conversation about the resettlement of 200 thousands has been going on for 20 years. Moreover, with variable activity. In Azerbaijan and in Armenia there are periodically people who reproach Stalin for the genocide of some people. Just let me remind you one for some reason fact-Stalin, who was forgotten by such commentators, came from the Caucasus. And he knew the situation in the Caucasus from the inside. But to say that there was someone who could put pressure on Stalin was contrary to historical truth.

          No one could even theoretically not put pressure and not influence Comrade Stalin.
          And Stalin's faithful comrade-in-arms, and he was next to him starting with the revolution, People’s Commissar Mikoyan, did nothing but benefit for his USSR country, otherwise, you yourself know where you would be.
          Since 1941, A.I. Mikoyan was the chairman of the committee for food and clothing supplies of the Red Army, as well as a member of the Evacuation Council and the State Committee for the Restoration of the Economy of Liberated Areas; since 1942, he was a member of the State Defense Committee
          By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of September 30, 1943 for special merits in the field of organizing the supply of food, fuel, and property to the Red Army in difficult wartime conditions, Anastas Ivanovich Mikoyan was awarded the title Hero of Socialist Labor with the Order of Lenin and the Hammer and Sickle Medal ".

                    The investigation began with the fact that it was found that the Walter pistol, from which Shakhurin shot, belonged to the youngest son of Anastas Mikoyan Vano. He and his older brother Sergo were arrested. They admitted to creating an anti-Soviet organization and named all its members. Those were also arrested. All members of the “Fourth Reich” stated that the entire organization was just a children's game, but no one paid attention to it. On July 23, 1943, eight members of the organization were placed in the NKGB internal prison. The investigator in their case was Leo Wlodzimirsky. On December 18, 1943, the brothers Mikoyan, Leonid Barabanov, Armand Hammer, Pyotr Bakulev, Leonid Redens, Artyom Khmelnitsky and Felix Kirpichnikov were sentenced to one year’s deportation to various cities of the Urals, Siberia and Central Asia without any trial. The verdict was signed by the People’s Commissar of State Security Vsevolod Merkulov and the Prosecutor General of the USSR Konstantin Gorshenin.

                    In 1942-1943, a group of students of the "government" school 175 under the leadership of Vladimir Shakhurin (pictured), the son of the People's Commissar of the Aviation Industry of the USSR Ivan Shakhurin, created an underground organization "The Fourth Empire": they admired the aesthetics of the Third Reich, formed a shadow government, called each other by the Gruppenführer and Reichsführer. After the mysterious death in June 1943 on the Kamenny Bridge in Moscow, a student of this school - the daughter of the USSR Ambassador to Mexico Nina Umanskaya, who, according to the official version, was shot by Shakhurin and then shot at himself - eight teenagers were arrested. Among them are two sons of Mikoyan, Stalin's nephew, the son of Academician Bakulev, who were part of the Fourth Empire. Stalin, having learned about this case, according to legend, said: "Wolf cubs." The guilty children of the leaders were expelled from Moscow, the case was hushed up.
                    While studying at school, Shakhurin Jr. met the following students who later became members of his Fourth Reich organization:

                    Sergo Anastasovich Mikoyan (son of Anastas Mikoyan)
                    Vano Anastasovich Mikoyan (son of Anastas Mikoyan)
                    Leonid Stanislavovich Redens (son of Stanislav Redens, nephew of Joseph Stalin)

                    Listen gentlemen!
                    On what basis did you appropriate heroes based on nationality? And Baghramyan, and Aslanov, and Kozhedub and millions of others were SOVIET heroes, and therefore OURS.
                    If they could read this srach, I think they would pour it on everyone on the first number.

We were Soviet. The truth was one nuance of this city. Rodopi cigarettes then they were produced with a short and long filter for some reason.

              I'll tell you a small example: the goods were brought to a store near the campus. 2 saleswomen worked in it. Who's in charge of carrying fish packs into the freezer? No not like this. The saleswomen remained at the counters, the store manager "phoned" a person practicing such work. Bargained and he endured everything. Where does the store manager get the money to pay for the work done? From these cigarettes and other "markups" on the goods. But you also have to pay off the freight forwarder for the timely delivery of hot goods, etc. And there the police, the Soviet will look. She's guarding the store! There are a lot of calculations, but my salary is not enough.

This was the plan of Moscow, in the implementation of which the Azerbaijani leadership - Vezirov and Mutalibov also took part. ”

                      Your Vadik is lying, until January 12, 1990 it was quiet and relatively calm. No casualties! Your Vadik is spreading rumors about what was happening in Sumgait and not otherwise. Or what relatives later wrote to him. There is no need to talk about the fact that rumors are always exaggerated. There were rumors in Baku that corpses were taken out and drowned there after the troops entered the sea. Can they be trusted?
                      And 12 and the next three days were really difficult for the city. Even the Azerbaijanis themselves, from decent families, urban, were afraid to take to the streets.

            I’m absolutely sober about everything and everyone. It’s just that I always have a negative point that any question regarding Azerbaijan by its citizens comes down to Nagorno-Karabakh. Have you hated the Armenians so much? Or the Armenians, but to us here in Russia your dismantlings do not seem very correct .A touch the memory of the Second World War, in order to achieve something for himself in general causes a negative.

                This really amazes me. If honestly ... I have many friends and colleagues of both nationalities. We are all brothers. We can walk on the nose talking (for some reason, I’m also mountain laughing ), we can walk through modern life, but we are brothers. Namely brothers. And I know that. If it will be shitty to me, both from Azerbaijan and from Armenia, and from Ukraine will come brothers who will break up, but help .. And their children will come same. And my children too.
                And most importantly, they won’t ask who you are or what kind of brother .. He’s either brother or not ...

        Why on earth does the village of Chardakhly become ChardakhlU? Is it from the same opera that Shusha became Shushi, and Khojaly became KhojalU? I agree that all citizens living in the territory of the Azerbaijan SSR, regardless of nationality, including Armenians, contributed to the Victory in the Second World War, but why rename the names of settlements in the Armenian way? Isn’t this the creeping separatism that began? And the deportation of Azerbaijanis from Armenia to low-lying regions of Azerbaijan in 1948 is pure truth. This was done to make way for the Armenian migrants from Turkey and Iran who were massively settled in 1947-1948. I and my whole family witness this. I come from Yerevan. Unas was a neighbor, an Armenian from Turkey, who always spoke in Turkish with us. She said that they were tritely thrown, promising a paradise life. And when we arrived and were convinced that this, to put it mildly, was not true, but there was no turning back.

      At that time there was not a single city that would not be completely surrendered to the approach of victory. Someone with oil, someone with bread, and someone shared a roof over their heads and food with refugees from the destroyed cities. Everyone did something, the whole country worked.
      There is no longer either the USSR, or the orders of Lenin, or the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. WHO will give this title? It was not done then, and whether recognition is necessary after the fact? The world already knows that Azerbaijan gave the country of Soviets during the Great Patriotic War.
      Residents of the hero cities not only worked, but also fought / defended.
      Thank God that Baku did not see what the hero cities saw during the war.
      And ALL claims to Aliyev Sr. I could have gotten it. His authority was STRONGER than that of Mikoyan. Rather, Georgadze and Shivarnadze (with that he Mikoyan) were pissed off - how can we assume that only ONE city in the Caucasus became a hero city ...

      I advise the author to read the status of a hero city.


      Title "Hero City"
      established by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on 8 on May 1965 and was timed to coincide with the 20 anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany and its allies.
      The honorary title of a hero city was assigned in the USSR to cities whose residents showed
      «mass "heroism and courage in defending the motherland in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945."

      Regulation on the highest degree of distinction - the title of "Hero City"
      link
      In total, 13 cities-Leningrad possess this title: Odessa, Sevastopol, Stalingrad, Kiev, the Brest Fortress -hero, Moscow, Kerch, Novorossiysk, Minsk, Tula, Murmansk, Smolensk.
      These are all cities where the most significant and bloody battles of the war took place, accompanied by the massive heroism of the army and residents of the cities. The participation of Baku apparently did not fall under the condition of "mass heroism and courage" as, for example, besieged Leningrad, besieged Sevastopol or Stalingrad.
      This honorary title is no longer awarded.after the collapse of the USSR.
      In Russia today is awarded the title "City of Military Glory" in the USSR it did not exist.
      the federal law “On the honorary title of the Russian Federation“ City of Military Glory “” In 2006, Vladimir Putin signed.
      Federal Law of the Russian Federation of 9 May 2006 N N 68-FZ
      According to this law, the title of a city of military glory is assigned to cities,
      «in the territory of which or in the immediate vicinity from which during fierce battles defenders of the Fatherland showed courage, stamina and mass heroism».

      All cities of military glory can be found on the website. Cities of Military Glory of the Russian Federation
      I think nothing bothers lack of political will the leadership of all the former republics of the USSR to introduce a similar honorary title in their own countries, with the goal of perpetuating the memory of fellow-countrymen and home front workers in a common victory over the enemy and patriotic and military education of youth.
      All made a feasible contribution in Victory, Won in Kharkov, despite the absence of the Law on Cities of Military Glory at the local level, deputies received a refusal from the Supreme Soviet Parliament to give this title independently.

        For this reason, it is possible to award the title of "Hero of the Village" to Khojalu (ethnic Armenians), and not to Baku, especially since the oil was not supplied by the city of Baku, but the Republic of Az-an.

        Dear Vurgun!
        Let's objectively admit that before the revolution of 1917, Azerbaijan did not exist as a separate state autonomy with state rights.
        Into the ADR account. A similar stage went through many republics and territories. I will not list, but on the network this information is enough. Remember, there was even the Donetsk-Kryvyi Rih Republic, in the form of a sort of conglomerate. Within a year or two, all this was soldered (sometimes, or often by force), as a result of which the Republics were formed. I am grateful to you that you consider me objective, but I always try to be just as I am, to be independent of anyone and from nothing.

          though history showed ... that independence nevertheless restored its historical rightness ... and the members of this faction were shot by the Communists themselves in the year 37 ... and Rasulzade was right when Stalin asked him ..- what did you give your country in 2 years ... he replied - You’re right .. we couldn’t do much, but we gave the people to feel how they should and should live in an independent country ... the banner raised once, will never fall !! which happened in 1991 .. .

What is the article about that, allegedly at the instigation of the Armenian, the heroic Azerbaijani city was not given the title of a hero ... But in fact, what ? about the fact that the Armenians, even under Stalin, plotted the intrigues of Azerbaijanis.

          Do not invent nonsense. Azerbaijani cavalry fought on the side of Russia in the Russian-Persian and Russian-Turkish wars in the 19th century. And in wars with the highlanders of Dagestan. Then they may not have taken to the service, but not only them. They didn’t take Russian into ordinary soldiers. Moreover, both Armenians and Georgians and Central Asians. And nobility served among all nations.

    If Baku is a hero, why not Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk, Izhevsk, Gorky and other cities where the weapon of victory was forged? Then the victory was not divided into "yours" and "ours", it was one for all, and everyone did not stand up to the price.
    The feat of the rear workers is priceless and great, but it cannot be compared with the feat of the front-line soldiers who fought under the walls of Moscow, Leningrad, Stalingrad, Sevastopol and other front-line cities. It was not for nothing that by the end of the war the front-line soldiers' chest was in gold and silver orders and medals "For Defense", "For Liberation", "For Taking", and most of the home front workers only had a modest bronze medal "For Valiant Labor in the Great Patriotic War." But Stalin's profile and the inscription "OUR BUSINESS IS RIGHT, WE HAVE WINNED" are the same as on the medal "For Victory over Germany" awarded to the front-line soldiers.
    Something like that.

        Again, distort. What does Baku and the heroes of the war veterans-Azerbaijanis have to do with it? Exactly the same heroes were in any city of the USSR, in any village, in the most forgotten places of God. The Soviet people fought for their homeland, for the USSR, and not for Armenia, Tatarstan, Uzbekistan and all other republics of the USSR. Each soldier was part of the army of the great Union of Peoples.
        Unlike you, I, on the contrary, notice that the representatives of your country are very painful towards everything that somehow is not consistent with your position.
        Are you writing about belittling the role of your people? But who, besides yourself, belittles this role? Who wrote that Azerbaijanis fought worse than Russians, Armenians, Tatars, Belarusians, Ukrainians?
        So you need to complain first of all about yourself. You ask yourself, answer yourself, hang up the labels yourself and draw conclusions on the basis of this internal dialogue .. And then you are offended that others disagree.

        Apollon] It amazes me how visitors never once said a good word about those heroes, sons and daughters of Azerbaijan who bowed their heads in the name of victory over fascism.
        Not only they perished in that war; no need to stick out.
        But if the Russian people weren’t for everyone, the khan would come ... maybe you can challenge it?
        Compare the contribution of each, then quarrel. Judging by the photo, the Russian oil was extracted by Baku women ... If they shot it not there, then this is the Volga region.
        Better let's remember all the peoples who fought and whose sons died on the battlefield ...

        Apollo, my dear, I personally am not at all surprised that "visitors never once said a kind word about those heroes, sons and daughters of Azerbaijan." As if you don't see their true attitude towards us every day. We are a priori enemies for them. And all our arguments and explanations will remain unanswered. Those who tore off some parts of their bodies because of the events in Biryulyov, even though they mentioned almost ten of our compatriots killed by nationalists, about a disabled child who was beaten on a bus in Zelenograd by a Nazi, as a result of which the boy was completely blind? tolerate separatism (which is correct), but foaming at the mouth they defend the separatists here. So take care of your nerves. As we say, a waterless well will not become full of water, even if someone starts pouring water there.

        And I would be glad if Baku didn’t have the chance to become a hero. And he would bow to the feet of those who stopped the Nazis in the North Caucasus, not even allowing them to admire Baku from a distance through Zeiss optics of artillery sights. I would bow to everyone, indiscriminately.
        You can be sure that most Leningraders would gladly give up the title of hero so that the blockade never happens.

        and about oil .. but why would it be needed if there were no Ural tanks, Omsk radio transmitters and airplanes, Mordovian assault rifles, Soviet soldiers?
        There is a specific article about a hero city. None of these cities, which we have listed, alas, is not only a hero city, but also a city of military glory ... There is a status and no one is going to change it for the sake of some kind of local ambitions. ..

    We should not exaggerate the role of Azerbaijan alone in the Great Patriotic War, we in Kazakhstan also have something to be proud of at least the famous 8th Panfilov Guards Division, all Soviet soldiers fought for one single country and not for separate republics.

    Of course, the city of Baku has merits, but they are labor, not combat. There are many such settlements on the territory of the USSR. The city of Voronezh definitely deserves the title of "Hero City". The battle there was no weaker than the one in Stalingrad. And the cauldron for the occupiers is no worse. There are still many blank spots in our history.

    good morning! 50% of comments have nothing to do with this article.
    for me personally, they gave the city the title of a hero, they didn’t anymore have any importance. Not for this, the Baku oil industry extracted oil for the front, not for this all the city’s enterprises produced military products right up to the fighter planes, not for that the city sheltered a million refugees. everything was done for the victory over the FASCISTS. they didn’t give, they didn’t.

    as for deportation he was. was carried out in 1947-1950 according to the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 4083 of December 23, 1947. One of the paragraphs of the resolution read:

    Allow the Council of Ministers of the Armenian SSR to use the buildings and houses freed by the Azerbaijani population in connection with their relocation to the Kura-Araksin lowland of the Azerbaijan SSR to use to resettle foreign Armenians arriving in the Armenian SSR.

    anyone in doubt can search the archives for the entire text of the decision and read. I myself am a descendant of those who were deported in 1947-1950.

Although there is open support for the invaders of our lands. Would Elchibei have any other people then you saw unfriendly attitude towards Russia and attitude would be really justified.
            But Russia is systematically doing everything to ensure that even Aliyev has minimal opportunities for at least some justification and more and more goes to hostility between peoples. If the young people managed to incite Orthodox Georgians against themselves, then they will outstrip the Muslims with Azerbaijanis about 2 times.

        By the way, when creating Park 26 and when transferring the bodies of the commissars, there were specific conversations that not all bodies were present in the grave, which later found some confirmation.

    A strange article: according to the "results" of the WAR, the people had an opinion only about FOUR hero cities: Leningrad, Odessa, Stalingrad, Sevastopol. I emphasize - THIS IS THE PEOPLE'S OPINION AND THE SPEECH !!! I think that in these cities no one will have doubts about their glorification, they speak for themselves. Official titles were already assigned to 6 cities for the 20th anniversary of the Victory: moreover, there was no Stalin, and his criticism, the bald corn man, was thrown out of power. Under the "unforgettable and dear" Leonid Ilyich it happened. To the 4 already mentioned cities, about which the people already knew, they added Moscow - otherwise it is not comilfo that the capital is not a hero (although the question of the heroism of its inhabitants in the light of the October 1941 mass exodus can be considered for a long time), and before Ukraine caved in, giving the hero to her capital - Kiev. And what does Stalin have to do with it ??? Mikoyan ??? and others like them ??? They were given the title for the feat in defending the city in battles with the German invaders, the heroism of the inhabitants, etc. And what has Baku to do with it ??? If you assign, then the title of the city of the hero-socialist labor (not the star of the Hero of the USSR to hang, but the Star of the Hero of the socialist labor), but there are a dozen more such cities that can be called: Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk, Kuibyshev, etc., etc.

    The article is just silly. A typical example of how journalism has degraded. Hero city status was introduced in the 65th year. In the same year A. Mikoyan was removed from office. Mikoyan could never offer any sharp resistance to Stalin (even to the deceased). On the contrary, he became famous as a very flexible People's Commissar. He managed to "live from Ilyich to Ilyich without a heart attack and paralysis." So all the nonsense about Mikoyan can be safely dropped into the trash can.

    Azerbaijan’s contribution to the Victory is enormous. But the labor feat does not give grounds for conferring the title of Hero City. Unfortunately, recently this title began to be distributed everywhere. Which leads to erosion of this title.

      firstly, not Bakhi, but Baku. in one word, two mistakes. Not the number of bombs is considered the importance of the city. It took one raid on the tank so that the whole city turned to ashes.
      in Baku a whole army of air defense stood. Do you think Stalin did not know what was going on, he understood the significance of the city, and Hitler understood what Baku means. Because he didn’t bomb.

At that time, Turkey was on the side of Germany and did not dare to enter the war because it was not confident in the Germans.

          Hi Ali! how are you?
          Yes, I am not mistaken! I know what I’m saying. In 1941, when the war of Azerbaijanis started, who were captured, they began to gather in camps. Then, Hitler began negotiations with Azerbaijani emigrant figures. The question was discussed
          on the independence of Azerbaijan. then the Azerbaijan Legion was created as part of several battalions that were supposed to participate in the battles for the Caucasus. But Hitler was critical of the plan for independence of Azerbaijan. He clearly expressed that Azerbaijan will become part of the 3rd Reich as a province of great Germany .as all nations were awaited by the camp and death. after the plans of Germany were found out, the emigrant figures, through their people, gave the Azerbaijani legion officers the order that they should leave the Wehrmacht troops with all subordinates and join the European resistance forces. That is why it appeared a large number of Azerbaijanis in the ranks of the Italian, Yugoslav and French resistance forces. My grandfather’s brother was drafted into the army, found himself in the legion, escaping from there with the whole company joined the Yugoslav partisans. After the war he returned to the USSR and received 25 years for treason .let after 10 he was released with an apology. all that I say I listened with my own ears from his lips .and was extremely surprised that he did not hold the grudge against the Soviet regime for arrest and believed that it was right. And yet, being an officer of the Soviet army, he was captured during the Kharkiv operation of 1942 and remembered the actions of the entire highest command composition of the front. but this is a completely different story and has nothing to do with this topic.

    given the Germans harrater think yes
    Personally, my opinion and what is the difference to a Pole or an Azerbaijani whose boot is German or Russian

    when I see monuments of World War II in Azerbaijan, it’s like a spit in my face. It is high time to demolish them and replace them with monuments of grief for the fallen in the Second World War.
    and the words of many members of the forum indicate that there is no role for the Azerbaijani people in this victory and they are largely right unfortunately
    Since the metropolis must know its place

      This was always the case with the brother. The role of the mother country and religious affiliation has always played. And the friendship of peoples is good when there is an all-powerful KGB, the KGB does not and immediately this friendship was covered with a copper basin.

    Ilham Aliyev paid attention to veterans of the Great Patriotic War. According to the decree, financial assistance in the amount of 500 manat will be provided to participants in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, and the widows of those killed in the Second World War or subsequently died soldiers will receive 200 manat each.

    This is generosity ... at least now the participants of the Second World War should be 90 years old, I wonder how many of them are left, something reminds me of our caring Rygoravych ... It is said loudly, and the costs are small good

      Well, Aliyev might not have done this either, because there are not so many of them in Azerbaijan and they have no influence on public opinion. This is really his concern that there are just a few of them left and they worked for their homeland. Literally a couple of years and into oblivion.

      What is hello, so is the answer. Then you are surprised that they don’t like Russians in Baku. But I must say that Baku was the most international city of the Union. You have a biased view of things. And it’s very primitive. I do not call Moscow the city of drunks.

      I still think that Baku did not deserve the title of a hero city. But for very real reasons. There were no fights here, the Germans did not reach Baku. And thank God.

      In addition to oil (and this is a very, very primitive view of things), Baku had a powerful industrial production. All plants worked for war. Mostly shells were made for Katyusha. At all times (!) In Baku schools there were memorial plates that in this school there was a evacuation hospital number such and such. Hundreds of thousands of wounded passed through Baku. Thousands of Azerbaijanis went to the front. It is unlikely that they were all traders. And people in caps worked at factories.

      So, Baku and Azerbaijan contributed to the Victory. And without oil, the contribution was quite significant. Just ignoramuses from history except stamps do not know anything. And ask them why the famous Balakhanskoye field watered will moo and carry nonsense.

      I repeat once again - the article is stupid and does not correspond to the facts.

So for Russia proper it wasn’t pumped for so long, before that the British successfully pumped it for the British, and it was the British of Baku who trash abandoned towers and pumps, black oil lakes among snow-white sand ... Now oil is taken from the bottom of the Caspian and in connection with this factor, the role of Azerbaijan for Russia as an oil-producing territory is negligible ...

      Another wrong thesis. Oil was pumped for the Union and the crap territories were inherited from the Union. And they didn’t download for long. Out of 150 years of oil production, for the Union and Russia they have been rocking for 120 years. This is of course not for long (by your standards).

That is, everything was done with you and your hands, and the "abstract" empire is to blame ...

          What is the skin of the Karabakh donkey? This she seems to you. Of course, in Baku there were engineering plants and oil engineering plants. But it is you who write about foreign hallmarks on the rocking chairs. All equipment was our own. So learn the story.

          Returning to your thesis on English oil. For over 100 years, oil has been rocking for the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. After the collapse of the Union, foreigners came. But as before, the bulk of the equipment is produced in Baku. I was only at ZGO a week ago (if you are a former Bakuer, you should know what it is). Everything works and new foundations descend.

          So we have been pumping oil to the British for the last 20 years. You would think that all the other ex-Soviet Union is pumping oil to someone else? You ask your tankers (again, I do not decipher the term. If you are in the subject, you should know). Azerbaijani oil was pumped under the Contract and now most of it goes to the budget of my country. And where do we get these "petrodollars"?

          Not everything is so cloudless. And there are still many miscalculations and shortcomings. But I saw Bibi Eibat of the Soviet period and modern. Do not believe me - I'm not going to convince anyone.

      By the way, now everything has changed there. I'm not going to give so many photos. Who wants to google - will find. How many did not meet with foreigners (come to Baku to work) all in a state of shock. Just ten days ago my old friend arrived. Scotsman. The last time he was in Baku 10 years ago. Cannot recover from delight. Everything has changed. He likes everything. The Poles (also had to communicate) are crazy about the old city. Even at night we went out into the city. How happy the children were when I told them about the houses that Ploshko built.

      By the way, all, without exception, note absolute safety. But the night city can be walked absolutely calmly. At least in a burqa, even in a miniskirt. Who likes what. No one bothers or hurts.

The city itself, if you do not count such black dust that settled on wild grapes and apricots, quite neat, but the color of the buildings is depressing ... And so in architecture there is a great mixture of styles, in some places Italy, in some places Turkey, in some places even the USA ... There is Empire, Rococo, and all sorts of styles you want. ..

          Being in a military unit, you could not know the city. Your attitude to the "city of traders" just outraged me. I do not draw conclusions from individual cases. And in no case do I generalize to the whole people. It so happened that I traveled around the world and worked in the most international teams. But no one has ever made such generalizations as on this site.

          In Soviet times, Baku was called handsome. And now he is simply unrecognizable. What to do, it is on green pieces of paper. But this just suggests that we are not pumping oil to the West. In any case, not in such quantities as in the early years. There are purely technical mining issues that are out of the question here. But we needed funds to get on our feet. And clean our ecology. How this was done, there are diametrically opposed opinions. In general, the problem was successfully solved.

          And about the article, I can only repeat it again. The title of Hero City has been devalued so much that there’s nothing to talk about.

But probably the "Armenian" aspect was also ...

        Now let's speculate about the "empire of the era of decline", at the time of this very decline ... I actually do not hide that I am not Russian by origin, I am a typical representative of small peoples, to which Russia came with the campaigns of Ermak ... That is, those peoples who for centuries weaved bast shoes and plowed their loams ... My great-grandfather, they say, was dispossessed, but then there was a school in that house where the scout Nikolai Kuznetsov (Paul Siebert) studied until grade 4 ... Now this house, or rather a log house from him rotting in the Ural forests, because these places are emptying ... Mother and father met at the timber industry enterprise and then left for Chuvashia (where there are no minerals) ... I was born there, finished school, entered an institute in Moscow and from the second year was drafted into the army ... Today, when everything is paid, it is practically inconceivable ... And from the Ugreshsky assembly point to the Kursk railway station and through Ukraine we arrived in Baku ... The funny thing is that I lived next to the Baku cinema in Moscow ... Baku in 1988 did not live in poverty at all in comparison with other cities of the "empire", the shops were full of everything and there was no need for anything ... In Baku, I first tasted baklava and other eastern sweets ... I learned that Gagauz people live in Moldova, and that Russians and other Slavs are "unfaithful" and the word given to them does not mean anything ... Well, here are about the first impressions about Azerbaijan of an 18-year-old guy from the center of Russia ... The most "terrible" thing for me is that I am friends with a Karabakh Armenian, but at school I was a desk with an Azerbaijani girl, by the way, she is beautiful now, even though she is already a grandmother ... So, this is ce la vie ...

          Everyone has different ideas. Baku of 88 was in poverty. And for everything that we didn’t have, we went to Moscow. A word is a word. And nationality never mattered to me. He gave the floor to the Slav - this is the same word as the Azerbaijani. I have not seen any nationalism in Baku. That would be funny. According to statistics, in a city with a population of 1,2 million there were 300 thousand Armenians, 300 thousand Russians and about 300 thousand Jews. These are approximate numbers. But very close to the truth. In Baku of the 80s, except for Russian, no other language was spoken. This is now a thing of the past, but I am sure that as many Russian schools as there are now in Azerbaijan are not found in any other former republic.

          The fact that we were divided and pitted is not our fault. Azerbaijan was the last to leave the Union. And the events in Osh, Karabakh, and Abkhazia began to collapse. That's who has his hands to the elbow in the blood. And the Agreement on the collapse of the USSR was signed by the Slavic peoples. Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. So the small nations are the least to blame. And now we have what we have. A small country, Azerbaijan, should have a shoulder of support. This is an axiom. We alone cannot stand it. A holy place is never empty. we will have other friends.

          But Russia has strong positions in Azerbaijan. Still strong. But every year they weaken. A new generation has grown. The second generation is already growing up, for which Russia, if not the enemy, but also not a friend for sure.

          And the fact that we are going to work for you, I did not say that everything is cloudless here. But ... they already said here. Enter the visa regime, close the borders and you will be happy. By the way, I am completely for this step. Whoever wants independence, let him slurp a full spoon. But politicians and politicians know the consequences. And the geopolitical consequences will be very, very unpleasant. For all of us.

            Well, you see, with the example of Baku, you can discuss so many problems, but for many it’s just a 2-million city far beyond the Caucasian ridge, where Eurovision took place ... And the fact that this is generally a serious center of the Caucasus with key positions, many are not know ...
