Who and what made Patriotism of General Vlasov? Part one

The course of “perestroika”, announced by Gorbachev some time after he came to the post of general secretary of the CPSU Central Committee, turned out to be closely linked not only with “progressive” economic ideas, but also with new ideas, let's say, of a humanitarian nature. It was from the second half of the eighties that new interpretations of the “correctness” of fiction, art and even stories. The so-called liberal historiographic science began to come into vogue, the main thesis of which was approximately as follows: you can forget everything that was included in the concept of “studying history” before - now you need to take a course on “restructuring” public opinion about the course of national and world history; New historiography and historiosophy should be fashionable ... This thesis "untied" hands to those who believed that they were connected - and the new historical science, like a stream of feces, began to overwhelm both the educational field and public life in general.

Historiographic sensations and pseudo-sensations began to be born in such a volume that, it seemed, literally everyone who saw a “creative grain” saw themselves as describing the course of historical events. The concept of “liberal historian” was born. And if initially the concept and activities of such people seemed very interesting both to professionals and ordinary people, over time the liberal epithet turned into a frankly abusive one. The liberal historian today is perceived not at all as a historian, but as someone who is overly eager for a sensation, and a sensation aimed exclusively at the cultivation of Russophobia or dubious values.

The Katyn case, the battles of the Great Patriotic War, the Russian revolutions, the role of individuals in the history of the state, the era of industrialization, the era of imperial reforms of the middle of the 19 century - these are just an incomplete list of what if not turned upside down, then served with spicy sauce. With such a sharp, that history and many historians have become frankly similar to, excuse me, corrupt girls - who pays, that “girl and dances”, he and “dines” ...

One of the topics that many representatives of the so-called creative community wanted to spice up with their own sauce was the topic of betrayal of General Vlasov. At the beginning of the 2000-x (apparently, on the post-perestroika wave), voices that General Vlasov was no longer a traitor, that he was a true Russian patriot, who applied forces to fight "vile Bolshevism" and "Stalinism", began to erupt. One of the first ideas to rehabilitate the “honest” name of General Vlasov was born by Sergey Belavenets (he is the monk Nikon, a member of the council of the so-called Russian nobility assembly, winner of two awards of the Russian Imperial House, confessor of the movement “For Faith and Fatherland”). His example was followed by representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad (ROCOR), who after the publication in 2009 of the book of the priest of the ROC, Archpriest George Mitrofanov, “The Tragedy of Russia:" forbidden "themes of the history of the 20th century in church preaching and journalism," also decided to reflect on glorification of Andrei Vlasov.

Who and what made Patriotism of General Vlasov? Part one

And here are some of the fruits of a liberal approach to the essence of national history in excerpts from readers' comments on Vlasov’s materials in the media:

Some Hukku writes:
General Vlasov was a great man. The embodiment of his manifesto could save the country. And the result of Stalin’s activity was a miserable existence.

Quotation from Wikipedia:
Andrei Andreevich Vlasov - Soviet commander (Lieutenant-General), a participant in the Battle of Moscow. He commanded the 2 th shock army, in the course of the Luban offensive in 1942, he was captured in Germany and cooperated with the leadership of the Third Reich against the political system of the USSR.

Against the political system, it turns out, the "great" man went ...

The ideas of rehabilitation and even the glorification of General Vlasov and all those who subsequently rose up under the banner of the ROA (Russian Liberation Army), in fact having taken the oath of allegiance to Hitlerite Germany, began to move actively in the media environment. The promotion of these ideas was carried out and continues to be quite active and persistent. So, for example, the Synod of Bishops of the ROCOR held a seminar in which the topic of General Vlasov was assigned a special role. Here are some excerpts from that seminar:

The tragedy of those who are called “Vlasovists”, i.e. members of the movement, on the basis of which emerged the Russian Liberation Army (ROA), is truly great. In any case, it should be comprehended with all possible impartiality and objectivity. Beyond this understanding, historical science is turning into political journalism. We think that in order to better understand what was happening in Russia - and with Russia - in the crucial years of the past century, a “black and white” interpretation of historical events should be avoided. These events, by their very nature, were so complex, internally contradictory and multi-layered, that an attempt to characterize them with any one word-concept was doomed to failure in advance. In particular, the naming of the genes. A.A. Vlasov is a betrayal, in our opinion, there is a frivolous simplification of the events of that time.

So, the ROCOR urges historians to deviate from the “black and white” interpretations, to delve deeper into the essence of the issue. Well, it is certainly necessary to delve into the essence of the question, but only the following quotation contains words that immediately negate this call:

Was there a gene. A.A. Vlasov and his associates - traitors to Russia? - we answer - no, not at all. Everything that they did was done precisely for the Fatherland, in the hope that the defeat of Bolshevism would lead to the re-establishment of a powerful national Russia. Germany was considered by the "Vlasovites" exclusively as an ally in the struggle against Bolshevism, but they, the "Vlasovists", were ready, if necessary, to resist the armed force of any kind of colonization or dismemberment of our Motherland. Paraphrasing the famous statement of the late Russian philosopher Alexander Zinoviev, a gene. A.A. Vlasov and his entourage, “aiming at communism,” made every conceivable effort to “not get into Russia.” And these sentiments, these aspirations were not particularly hidden in the “Vlasov” environment, and that is why the haters of Russia, both in Germany itself and in other countries, did everything they could to prevent the timely creation of an efficient Russian Liberation Army, and especially - the Russian national government.

That is, at least, the inconsistency is obvious here. The Synod of Bishops calls not to slip to exclusively “white” or exclusively “black” in the interpretation of the course of history, but immediately declares that General Vlasov is not a traitor, but a fighter with Bolshevism ... Even without half tones ... Interesting logic ...

ROCOR, a number of dignitaries of the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as liberal interpreters of history, have been trying for a long enough period to present Andrei Vlasov as a heroic figure that the illiberal historians unjustly slandered. And they try, despite the fact that in November 2001 of the year, the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation refused to rehabilitate General Vlasov and many so-called “Vlasovites”.

So, what are the main points of supporters of the idea that Vlasov is not a traitor, Vlasov is a true Russian patriot.

Main idea: Andrei Vlasov (already outside the USSR) himself pronounces an accusatory anti-Stalin and anti-Bolshevik speech. Like, what is there to think and guess when a quick general presents us his point of view.
But is it your own? .. Or even not so, but how many general points of view did General Vlasov have? ..

Referring to that speech - the so-called Prague Manifesto (manifesto of the “Committee for the Liberation of the Peoples of Russia”) 1944 of the year. We present excerpts from this speech (video version -


The Bolsheviks took away the freedom of speech, freedom of belief, freedom of the individual, freedom of residence and movement, freedom of industry and the ability of every person to occupy a place in society in accordance with their abilities. They replaced these freedoms with terror, party privileges and arbitrariness perpetrated on man. The peoples of Russia forever lost faith in Bolshevism. The committee aims to overthrow the Stalinist tyranny, liberate the peoples of Russia from the Bolshevik system and return the rights won by the 1917 people's revolution to the people of Russia, end the war and make an honorable peace with Germany, create a new free statehood without the Bolsheviks and exploiters.

What a fine general Vlasov! - exclaim in the ROCOR. What are the right words said Vlasov! - echo them those who firmly believe in the patriotism of the escaped general. Yes, he wanted to use the power of the German army to create a sovereign Russian state free from Bolshevik "tyranny"! - say the same people.

But after all, bad luck ... Neither the ROCOR, nor among other modern fans of the ROA and General Vlasov does not take into account other documentary evidence related to the name of the fugitive general.

        In fact, you said right, everything is true ... but there is a nuance - note that this is not about the ROC, but about the ROCA - about the Russian Orthodox Church BEYOND.

        But this office knows what dudu sings ... Officially broke with the Russian Orthodox Church in some twenty-one year - after the Russian Orthodox Church officially supported the Soviet Government.

        In the USSR, this office was rightly viewed as a counter-revolutionary, anti-Soviet monarchist "emigrant religious-political group" - it cooperated with all the enemies of the USSR and Russia, which it could find.

        Now they seem to have reunited again, but the ROCOR is completely self-governing and the people in it have remained the same as before .... so it’s not surprising that they praise the Nazi traitor - they are completely ready in their hatred of the Communists destroy the Russian people and make a deal even with the Lightbringer (Lucifer) will go.

      but certainly not General Vlasov !!!

      There are too many inconsistencies in his "betrayals" ...

      In my opinion, if the ROA had been led by someone else, or the Germans would have decided not to use the ROA at all, it is not a fact that the Red Army would have reached Berlin so quickly ...

      Thanks to the leadership of Vlasov, the Red Army received many gaps in the front ...

      According to my guesses, he is a deeply secret agent or leader of the 5 column in Germany ...

      And you can recall the case of the Black Chapel ...

Humor of this kind is typical for people with little education, laughing, over a slipped person instead of helping him to rise. If you wrote seriously, then I recommend reading books first. and not the revelations of idiots on the "yellow" sites. for the phrase "according to my guesses" is appropriate only in that case. if your guesses are based on factual material.

In 1945, he was captured by the Red Army, in 1946 he was convicted of treason, deprived of his military rank, state awards and executed.

        This is from Wikipedia, so beloved by the liberals.

        Now we have discovered the Russian general Vlasov. With Russian generals a special thing. Our brigadenfuhrer Fegelein captured this Russian general. I guarantee you, from almost every Russian general we can make Vlasov! It will be unbelievably cheap. And this Russian, whom we captured, costs us nothing at all. He was the commander of one shock army.
        Our brave Fegelein said to his people: Let’s try to treat him as if he were a general indeed! And famously stood before him at attention: “Mr. General, Mr. General!” After all, everyone is pleased to listen. And here it worked too. Still, this man after all had the Order of Lenin, number 770 ...
        So, this general was treated properly, terribly polite, terribly sweet. In accordance with their peculiarities, the Slavs willingly listen when they are told: “You know this much better than us,” they like to be kindly listened, to debate a little. This man issued all his divisions, his entire offensive plan, and in general everything he knew. The price for this treason? On the third day, we told this general something like this: the fact that there is no turning back to you is true to you. But you are a significant person, and we guarantee you that when the war ends, you will receive the lieutenant general's pension, and in the near future - here you have schnapps, cigarettes and women. That's how cheap you can buy such a general! Very cheap. You see, in such things you need to have a damn accurate calculation. Such a person costs 20 thousand marks a year. Let him live 10 or 15 years, this is 300 thousand marks. If only one battery fires for two days, it also costs 300 thousand marks.
        But it’s dangerous to make a big political program out of a Slav, which ultimately can turn against us. In all this matter of Vlasov’s propaganda, I felt great fear. Actually, I'm not a pessimist, and I rarely get excited. But this business seemed to me dangerous.
        It seemed dangerous to me at the very moment when I began to receive letters from German soldiers stating that we underestimated the Russian man. He is not a robot and not ok, as we know from our propaganda. This is an orderly nation that is oppressed. We must instill in him National Socialism and create a Russian nationalist party. Russians have their own ideals. And then Mr. Vlasov’s ideas arrived: Russia was never defeated by Germany; Russia can only be defeated by the Russians themselves.
        And this Russian pig Mr. Vlasov offers his services for this. Some old people in our country wanted to give this man a millionth army. They wanted to give this unreliable type weapons and equipment so that he could move with this weapon against Russia, or maybe once, which is very likely, what good, and against ourselves!

    That's just the question for everyone - even white generals (I’m silent in the Soviet Union, for some it is fiction and lies) seeing that a hopeless situation fired to preserve the remnants of conscience and honor.
    Since he is so all in white - why didn’t he, reptile, shoot himself?

      Vlasov is a traitor, definitely. But the way he became, the situation his army was in, and he was appointed commander already when the army almost suffered a catastrophe, do not forget about it. And his 20th Army was in the lead roles in the battle of Moscow, so he did not run away with white ports captive. By the way, Admiral Oktyabrsky threw his fighters in Sevastopol and flew away to fight on - you don’t think such behavior of the commander is strange, leave your army and be saved alone. But Vlasov shared the fate of his soldiers to the end, and what became a traitor is certainly bad.

        his 20th army was leading in the battle of Moscow

        Near Moscow, Vlasov was appointed commander of the 20th army, but did not command it, he was in the hospital with an inflammation of the middle ear, and the army was "dragged" by the chief of staff, General L.M. Sandalov. Vlasov received the BKZ for Moscow as part of all the commanders of the front armies, the list was made by Zhukov. Zhukov, by the way, received nothing for Moscow (there was no one to write an idea). And what about "did not run with white ports"
        Hauptmann Ulrich Hardt, the former head of communications of the 4th Aviation Division, said: "Vlasov, in clothes without insignia, was hiding in a bathhouse near the village of Mostki, south of Chudov. He was discovered by the village headman and reported to a German officer passing through the village. When the door was opened and up! ”, Vlasov shouted:“ Do not shoot, I am General Vlasov - the commander of the second shock army. ”Vlasov was interrogated on July 15, 1942 at the headquarters of the 18th German army and, as expected, the information received from the prisoner was sent out with an information letter No. 1379-42 for his units. Here is a summary of the document about the first interrogation of Vlasov. "Explaining that he entered the CPSU (b) in 1930 in order to be able to advance in the service, and complained about the difficult character of Army General K. A Meretsko-ia, the former commander of the 2nd shock, gave detailed information about the structure of the Volkhov front, about the reasons for military failures, praised the work of German artillery and aviation, assessed the losses of his army as killed and captured - up to 60 thousand people. (This part of Vlasov's testimony is of an exculpatory nature. He was clearly inflating himself, making it clear that everything that happened was the result of the activities of others. - V.K.) ... According to the testimony of Lieutenant General Vlasov, the plan for the military release of Leningrad remains in force ... The implementation of the plan depends on how much the divisions of the Volkhov and Leningrad fronts will rest, as well as on the arrival of reinforcements. With the available forces, the Volkhov and Leningrad fronts are not capable of any offensive actions in the direction of Leningrad. These forces are enough to hold the Volkhov front and the front between Kirishi and Lake Ladoga ... ... In the spring, numerous divisions were deployed to the south, and they stopped paying attention to the northern fronts. The Volkhov front did not receive any more reinforcements ... ... in the central zone Zhukov can once again go on a large offensive from Moscow, he has enough reserves ... "As you can see, the information given by Vlasov is, of course, military secrets, many Our officers, who fell into the hands of the Nazis, did not divulge less significant military secrets even under torture, and Vlasov, being an experienced, well-informed general, at the very first interrogation with his testimony clearly seeks to win over enemies and promotes their successful military operations. detailed comments about this act of Vlasov, I will just give a note from his personal file: “February 1939 I took the military oath.” And it contains the following words: “... I take the oath and solemnly swear ... to strictly keep the military and state a secret ... If, by malicious intent, I violate this solemn oath of mine, then let the harsh punishment of the Soviet law, universal hatred and contempt of the working people befall me. "

        Sir, I’m sorry, but you are either just a short-sighted person, or you don’t understand the topic.
        Firstly, the officers are a very valuable resource that even the Yankees exported without any embarrassment, or for example read the story of the expedition of Alexander the Great when he crossed the desert. For example, A.I. Eremenko, the former surrounded, was evacuated to Moscow, and after the hospital he commanded in December already commanded during the counteroffensive of the Soviet troops.
        And even Vika does not lie with him.
        In December, Eremenko was appointed commander of the 4th shock army, which was part of the North-Western and Kalinin fronts, and took part in the Soviet counter-offensive near Moscow. There the troops of his army achieved perhaps the best results in the winter offensive of 1942: defensive lines were broken, the enemy was thrown back 250 kilometers in a month of fighting, the cities of Andreapol and Toropets were liberated, the enemy’s Rzhev group was captured from the north and the Velikoluks group was captured from the south. January 20, during a bombing by German planes of the headquarters of the troops, Eremenko was again wounded, but refused to be sent to the rear hospital and continued to lead combat operations for another 23 days. Only on February 15 he was taken to the hospital, where he stayed until August 1942.

        Secondly, if we share the fate of the army, then there are more worthy people for this - F.A. Ershakov, S.V. Vishnevsky, M.F. Lukin who were captured near Moscow in the 41st, and after that they were in fascist concentration camps, or there are those who lay down next to their fighters - M.P. Petrov, K.I. Rakutin. I am talking about environments. By the way, thanks to them, fettered parts of the Germans, time was gained to tighten reserves to Moscow when the front collapsed during the fall of the Germans. It’s not worth saying that the story could completely change if they acted as Vlasov surrendering at a difficult moment.

        Here's an example of officers followed by soldiers who shared their hardships. And to say that "this" shared the fate of the army is an insult to all those fallen officers and political workers who fulfilled their duty to the end. This is not Hearts of Iron, where oh I made a mistake right now I will make a save load. This is not a sandbox. This is a harsh war - here they kill and do not forgive mistakes, take advantage of the enemy's mistakes.

        And Vlasov, at the first serious problem, surrendered without taking anything to save the situation. Efremov’s army tried to get out of the encirclement. Belova's cavalrymen were able to go out too. Many moved into partisans, realizing that there was no way to leave. But this one did nothing.

        And by the way, from the remnants of the 2nd shock army, not everyone turned over, otherwise which one he went and promoted for entry?

    I am bitter to read such articles in "VO". My loved ones died defending the country from fascism. Father died on December 27, 1941 on the Leningrad front. Paying tribute to his merits, colleagues managed to bury his father in a separate grave at the Theological cemetery. It was December 1941. Therefore, we were raised by one mother. I had to start an independent life early. Already at the age of 19 I was a lieutenant, at the age of 24 I defended my first dissertation, then the second. He created many types of weapons and military equipment, which are adopted and protect the country now. When I was young, I walked in the Myasny Bor area along the path of retreat along the corridor of the 2nd Army. Vlasov is a traitor, a mediocre military leader and killer of our commanders and soldiers. Commissar of the 2nd Army Zuev took the groups out of the encirclement four times. He died for the fourth time, a village on the border of the Leningrad and Novgorod regions was named after him. Here is a hero. I managed to see the documents about how this traitor commanded near Moscow. During the fighting in December 1941, he was sick, lay with a fever and did not take part in the defeat of the Nazis in the area of ​​the Leningradskoe highway. The Russian people do not give in to calls to reconsider the activities of this traitor. On his hands is the blood of our compatriots and the grief of their families. I have the honor.

        . From the Kiev boiler, he was able to somehow get out.

        Reading Stadnyuk's autobiographical book "Confessions of a Stalinist" I came across an interesting version about Vlasov:
        Alexander Saburov really was a truly people's general - a nugget who knew how to scale far and business-like far ahead. I learned a lot from meetings and conversations with him. His story alone has been haunting me for many years. It dealt with the events of 1941 on the South-Western Front, when our troops were there in enemy surroundings. More specifically, it was about General Vlasov, who at the beginning of the war commanded the 44th motorized corps. During the retreat from Lviv, Vlasov lost his corps and, leaving the first encirclement, was appointed commander of the 37 Army, which occupied the Kiev fortified area. When German troops bypassed the 37 Army, Vlasov with staff officers began to make his way east. In some kind of coppice far from the Dnieper, a small handful of NKVD workers met with its headquarters, headed by Saburov. We decided to leave the environment together. However, at night, Alexander Nikolayevich knew (I don’t remember under what circumstances) that General Vlasov selected officers at his headquarters who agreed to surrender to the Germans, and ordered the dissenters to be shot ... Saburov and his subordinates, without waiting for the morning, fled from Vlasov, and then, creating a partisan detachment, they remained to fight behind enemy lines.
        Vlasov was known to the leadership of the country, including Stalin and Tymoshenko, as a gifted military leader who received the title of “major general” before the war and was awarded the Order of the Red Banner. Shortly after leaving the encirclement, he was appointed commander of the 20 Army, defending Moscow ...
        General Saburov asserted with confidence that Vlasov had already been captured by the Germans and was “released” by the Germans before leaving the enemy rear, taking on them the obligation to contribute to the success of the Nazi troops.
        I also drew attention to the fact that in the memoirs of Colonel General L. Sandalov, who was the chief of staff of the 20 Army, it was said that Vlasov, having taken the army near Moscow, did not command it because of his illness. At the Institute of Military History, they told me what kind of “illness” it was: Vlasov drank it in black, and Sandalov performed his duties.

    Still, Vlasova is something strikingly different from the rest of the collaborators. You can understand why he didn’t shoot himself in an environment, everyone wants to live, but why before that he refused to evacuate, saying that he didn’t want to leave his people, although an airplane flew behind him? And at the very end of the war, when it was clear that Germany had lost, Franco offered him asylum first, but again refused, saying that he would not abandon his fighters, then the Americans offered to evacuate him, but he again did not agree, because he insisted that not only him, but also all the soldiers and officers of KONR who were with him. And in the last two cases, he perfectly understood that the Soviet troops were about to seize him. But why? Somehow it does not even fit into the head.

Show true heroes no-no - and suddenly national pride and self-esteem wake up, people will remember that they are not trembling and have honor. On the contrary, it is necessary to smack these heroes. I will not forget and will not forgive the same E. Radzinsky when he said that "why did Matrosov rush into the embrasure, you could have called tanks, aviation" (the quote is not literal, but the meaning is accurate). Today the war is going on for the heads of the younger generation, all this heresy is being introduced to them. They are trying to make the electorate and cattle.

          Do not be an idealist, the world is not black and white. I am deeply violet at the enemies of the current government, as well as at its friends. The same applies to the Russian Orthodox Church, and even more so to the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad.
          Regardless of the past / present / future government and its enemies / friends, Russia will always be a bone in the throat of the whole world. It has not been possible to defeat Russia by force for a long time, the first compilation of the strategy of victory over Russia was made by Bismarck, after the Second World War it was expanded and implemented almost completely, now they are "squeezing out". Remember about the substitution of moral values, false ideals, etc.? And if you think that this struggle is over and is not being waged, you are blind. There is a battle of civilizations. And within the framework of this battle, cruelty is implanted from an early age (cartoon Sailor Moon, for example), the primordial principles on which, like on the pillars, the Russian civilization stands, are not allowed into the brains of the young generation, and in exchange for them self-centeredness and fear for their own skin are implanted ideals of consumption, etc. This is what I am about.
          But the authorities and the Russian Orthodox Church have nothing to do with what you mean. They are given to us so that we can collect taxes and baptismal taxes. And the rest - they are not at work, and therefore no claims to them.

      For failure to comply with the order of the Headquarters on the timely and quick withdrawal of troops of the 2nd shock army, for paper-bureaucratic methods of command and control, for separation from the troops, as a result of which the enemy cut the communications of the 2nd shock army and the latter was put in an extremely difficult situation.

I accepted the people's revolution, joined the ranks of the Red Army to fight for land for the peasants, for a better life for the worker, for a brighter future for the Russian people. Since then, my life has been inextricably linked with the life of the Red Army ... "

If the first two were of a pronounced anti-Soviet character and were carried out rather aggressively, now they are more subtle. They apply such a kind of scientific approach to the topic. Thus, gradually introducing into consciousness the idea that there are no forbidden topics, that all historical phenomena, to which the history of Vlasov's betrayal certainly belongs, are multifaceted in their essence, that semitones are possible, etc. And this is all against the background of a general degradation of the educational level in the country.

      Hi Chef, you probably know how he left Belarus, having dressed in civilian clothes, that is, in clothes ..... the 41 year war immediately showed that there is a difference between civil and this war .....

          and he did it right .... before the war he gave them all these general and marshal ranks in advance ..... but when he saw that they couldn’t do it, they paid off their heads ...... he shot selectively by the way .. I didn’t touch Lukin .... but Novikov was shot to hell ..... although Lukin was held captive and they even say he offered his help to the Germans ... but Novikov went through the whole war, but broke down on trophies ..... all the same, in these it’s dark, if you looked at the cream of the eye all these investigative matters, a lot would have cleared up))))
          I just don’t understand why they had so much time and opportunity at hand, because they were guarded as commanding officers, whole regiments and battalions, they couldn’t shoot themselves at least ... or somehow topple down .. or stay and partisan .... ...

Bullet in the temple --- and relatives have no shame, indelible. General Efremov for some reason was frightened and personally for me he is the standard of military valor!

      At the beginning of World War II, the 6-I army as part of the South-Western Front participated in border battles. In August 1941, during the Battle of Uman, the 6 I Army was encircled.
      6 August 1941 years, Lieutenant General I.N. Muzychenko was seriously wounded in his left leg and captured. He lay in German hospitals in Rivne, Vladimir-Volynsky. After recovery, he was taken to Germany to the Hammelburg prison camp. Here the Germans repeatedly suggested that he go to their service or at least participate in anti-Soviet propaganda. Muzychenko rejected all these proposals. In punishment, he was transferred to a prison in Weissenburg fortress with a very difficult regime. 29 April 1945 year Muzychenko was liberated by American troops from the camp of Mossburg.
      From May to December of the 1945 year, he was tested at the Soviet military mission for repatriation in Paris and at the NKVD in Moscow. December 31 1945 of the year was restored in the cadres of the Soviet army. In April 1947 he graduated from the Higher Academic Courses at the Military Academy of the General Staff, then for more than six months he was at the disposal of the personnel department of the Ground Forces. He was offered a number of command or staff positions in the troops or educational institutions, but Muzychenko refused, citing the fact that his health was very much undermined by the cruel regime of the fascist camps. In this regard, 8 October 1947 year, he was fired. He lived in Moscow, was treated a lot, periodically took part in the work of the military scientific society at the Central House of the Soviet Army. General Muzychenko died on December 8 of the 1970 of the year in Moscow. He was awarded the orders: Lenin (1946 g), 4 Red Banner (1938, 1940, 1946, 1957 years), as well as many medals.

          Regarding Ponedelin and Kirilov, there are photos taken by the Germans where they talk with the Germans and photos where they have lunch that were used for propaganda. That’s why they probably weren’t forgiven and were shot in 1950.

          The only captive general who was credible was the commander of the 5th Army, General Potapov. After the war he was accepted by Stalin and returned to the army almost without verification, preserving his epaulettes and awards. Thanks to the actions of the 5th army, the barbaross plan in the Kiev direction was disrupted. and only because of the% Guderian had to turn to Kiev. Stalin remembered this. Do we remember this?

    If Vlasov immediately went to the Nazis in the 41st, then there could have been some discussion about his patriotism, honor and conscience. But it turns out that he was captured in the 42nd, and in order to save his own skin he fell into traitors, the brainwashing and the failures of the Red Army might have worked, but this does not justify pure betrayal as it is.

    An ambiguous personality. Let me explain what its ambiguity is. Of course, he is a traitor, and he is for me. It cannot be justified - it is a slap in the face to all those who shed blood on the fields of War or burned down in the camps. The reason for his betrayal is ambiguous. Those. I would not say that he cooperated solely out of a desire to save his life. The fact is that several times I came across - in various books (for example, Bushkov - "The Red Monarch") that Vlasov and part of his generals are the surviving remnants of Tukhachevsky's conspiracy. And when he was captured, it was logical for himself and considered to continue the unfinished business. Moreover, it was not Hitler who went to meet him - he was just against it. The creation of the ROA was supported by the German generals and some members of the SS. At the end of 1944, after the Staufenberg conspiracy, the Fuehrer gave the order to disarm the "eastern battalions" (as the Germans called the ROA formations), but his order was not carried out - which suggests that the German generals had some interests of their own with Vlasov. And another important point - Vlasov and Co., after they fell into the hands of our organs, were kept in the fortress for about a year. They conducted interrogations. And after their execution at 46, after a while a decree was issued on "strengthening measures to combat the Trotskyist underground." So we think - what Vlasov and his people knew, and what were their true reasons for betrayal.
    Of course, I understand that it gives away some cheap conspiracy theories, but the facts are a stubborn thing. There was such a supply. Like the annual imprisonment - when all the traitors were put to the wall without much discussion.
    Ps I took the information, as I said, from Bushkov. At the end of his book, links to his sources are given, you can check.

    I met such a version. Vlasov deliberately went over to the Nazis, on the instructions of Stalin, with the goal of organizing = fifth column =. For the critical situation, the 42-year version seems very believable. And I think it was. It was just that Stalin could not predict the course of events. Well, and then, he just became superfluous.

    Vlasov and Vlasovites are traitors. Anyone who stood on a par with the enemy and raised his hand to his compatriots is a traitor. There can be no ideological justification. You must always be a patriot of your country, especially in difficult times, regardless of whether you like power or not.

    In 1945, the Vlasovites spread a rumor in the camps that the Germans were shooting prisoners of war when retreating, and therefore it was necessary to enroll in the ROA, this is the only chance to save lives. The rumors were not groundless, in Pomerania, the SS completely destroyed one camp, according to some sources, up to 11 thousand prisoners, mostly Soviet. But even under these conditions, only a few were recorded in the ROA. Basically, the ROA was replenished at the expense of the former policemen, withdrawn during the retreat by the Germans. By April 1945, the number of ROA reached 135 thousand. Rumors about allegedly "millions of Russians who fought against Hitler" are complete nonsense.
    Back in the 50s, émigré publicists took the number of all formations from the citizens of the USSR and put them together. But this is double or even triple accounting, because the same people are counted there 2-3 times. For example, the soldiers of the East Turkic SS division were all earlier in the Turkestan legion, and the soldiers of the SS "Idel-Ural" division were all earlier in the Volga-Tatar legion. All the soldiers of the Kalmyk corps later ended up in the ROA and they were also counted 2 times. Half of the 135-thousandth ROA model of 1945 served as policemen in the occupied territory. Only from Ukraine did the Germans withdraw 11 police battalions, then they all ended up in the ROA, from which the 2nd ROA division was formed. They were also counted 2 times.
    In reality, according to objective estimates, 650-750 thousand citizens of the USSR served Hitler, of which about a third were Baltic. Only a few people (110 thousand) passed through the Latvian Legion than through the entire Vlasov army.

    the enemy is the enemy, and war is still war
    and the dungeon is dark, and freedom is one,
    and always trust in her.
    Time has not erased these understandings -
    tear off the upper layer from it -
    and steaming blood from the throat
    eternal feelings gush on us.
    Now, forever, forever and ever, antiquity,
    and price is price, and wine is wine,
    and it’s always good if honor is saved,

    Only yesterday I was on Nevsky Piglet, then I read the veteran’s memoirs about the battles near Myasniy Bor, he clearly states that Vlasov went to cooperate with the Germans from the very first moment when he gave up.
    And thanks to him, the Germans also learned about the insignificance of the remaining fighters, and about the weakness of their defense and the inability to make a powerful breakthrough. Taking advantage of this, the Germans transferred many fresh units to Stalingrad.

    Then Admiral Oktyabrsky was mentioned, but what is it, so small? And let us remember Peter I (well, the very one whom the descendants of the Great were called out), who left the troops under Narva. Let's not call him Peter the Great: he is bad! He left the troops, fled instead from the front! Let us not understand why all this was done, what would happen to Russia otherwise - just condemn for a real fact: I ran away and not shot myself! And you can’t wash a black dog about Vlasov! Remember how they described the behavior of Vlasov as the Germans, after putting in captive, and in Moscow, after he was returned back A: It was the behavior of a cowardly man ready even for the sake of miserable existence to betray and sell everything and everyone.

    My grandfather fought in the 2nd Shock Vlasov. When they were surrounded, the grandfather left with his division, 10 thousand people, a couple of days later there were only about 200 people. The rest died. They surrendered to the Germans together with Vlasov: his headquarters, his close associates, those who guarded him, were a couple of battalions. The rest died under such conditions that they couldn’t believe that this was possible. My grandfather got to the hospital with several injuries, barely saved! Then the Soviet camp and rehabilitation, reached the borders of the USSR. Was a lieutenant and always raised children as patriots to the core and bones! There are many who say that if he served in the 2nd Shock, it means Vlasovets, a traitor! This cliché, for the demented, from the entire 150 thousandth army, surrendered voluntarily and began to work for the enemy, only about 1 thousand! So why bother everyone with dirt! Zhukov drove millions to slaughter and did not hide that he drove so many soldiers into the enemy’s forehead. Knowing that they would die, he simply explained, This is a war and without losses But nowhere, no one said that he was a butcher and slow-witted, if he could not save Anit his soldiers! He is a hero for everyone! But he did the troubles no less than Stalin! Therefore, it’s necessary not only to judge something by article, but to be interested, to study other more detailed information!

          It is difficult to condemn the soldiers whom Zhukov's order raised to attack. But you and I have the opportunity to compare and draw conclusions. Ask why von Leeb did not take Leningrad when Voroshilov, resigned to the loss of the city, ordered the Baltic Fleet ships and all enterprises to be prepared for the explosion. Why the Typhoon "stalled". And further, on the rise. And if you are sincere with yourself, you will agree that not a butcher, but a talented commander, although not without problems.

            As a military officer I explain, it is possible to execute an order in at least 2 ways: 1 widely used - at any cost (by the blood of soldiers and officers) and 2 reasonable. Unfortunately, in CA, the army of the Russian Federation and even tsarist Russia, 1 method is more often used. Under the threat of execution, Marshal Zhukov demanded the execution of his orders, this does not detract from his fighting qualities, like Marshal of Victory, but there could have been much fewer victims. Although we had commanders who laid hundreds of thousands of soldiers, not achieving victory (for example, Mius Front)

              Well, since you are a military man, you should know that sometimes there is no alternative to the execution of the order that you have proposed. Stalin went further than Zhukov - issued order No. 227. He was probably unreasonable.
