Multimeter St. George Ribbon over New York

51
TASS news agency reports on a series of events that took place in the largest metropolis of the USA in New York on Victory Day. The event was organized by various organizations and foundations, including the Russian Youth of America Society. One of the actions dedicated to Victory Day was the flight over the Statue of Liberty, Hudson, Brooklyn and other areas of the city of light-engined aircraft with a multi-meter St. George ribbon attached to it.




TASS quotes the president of the society “Russian Youth of America” Igor Kochan:
In the US, 9 May, unfortunately, is not a day off. But for our compatriots it is especially important to feel the celebration of the Victory, which is celebrated in the homeland, thereby feeling unity, intimacy with Russia. We tried to coincide with the rally to 9 in May to please our veterans, blockade, "children of war" and all those for whom the holiday is the most important in the year. Interest in our common stories on the part of the Americans significantly increases every year.


Over the course of several days, more than 25 thousand St. George ribbons were distributed in the USA, and about 2 thousand people took part in the Immortal Regiment march. The action was attended not only by residents of New York, but also residents of Philadelphia, Los Angeles and other American cities.

Igor Kochan told that the “Russian Society of America” intends to expand the American geography of the Victory Day celebration, and also to connect American schools to the events celebrating the history of veterans in the future.

              The right thing. People begin to wonder what and how. They are being told that the United States played a major role in the Second World War. And then such a WOW (80% of the entire manpower of the Wehrmacht was destroyed on the Eastern Front, it is enough to "register" this figure in the brains of people in other countries) - and what should the media, the authors of textbooks do !? On the other hand, this "propaganda" is already under way in many countries of the world, and it becomes impossible to hide the role of the USSR. hi

And it is about the fact that even our runaway immigrants still remember their homeland, remember its feat and try to convey the significance of the USSR-Russia in this war to the younger generation of Americans ...

                  What American weapons were in the Wehrmacht? Before the war, the USSR also actively cooperated militarily with Germany and Italy (for example, where the cruiser "Petropavlovsk" and the leader "Tashkent" came from in the Soviet Navy)

                    Do not exaggerate. Nothing personal.
                    In May 1933, President of the Imperial Bank, Yalmar Schacht, visited America, where he met with President F. Roosevelt and major American financiers. Soon, Berlin receives investments in German industry and loans from the United States totaling over a billion dollars. A month later, in June, at an international conference in London, Hialmar Schacht also holds talks with the head of the British bank, N. Montague. As then, during the Nuremberg trials, said J. Schacht, the UK provided loans to Germany in the amount of over a billion pounds, which amounted to two billion dollars in dollar terms.
                    After Germany experienced the economic crisis in the 20s, American industrial corporations and banks bought up the assets of many of the country's key enterprises. Owned by the Rockefeller family, Standard Oil gained control of the German corporation I. G. Ferbenindustri ”, which financed the election campaign of A. Hitler in 1930. Over“ Opel ”since 1929, its control was exercised by the General Motors Corporation, belonging to the Dupont family. It was at the factories of this corporation in Germany that the famous Blitz trucks were made for the German army. ITT, an American telephone company, acquired 40% of German telephone networks.
                    Before World War II, the leading four from America invested about $ 200 million in the militarized German economy: Standard Oil - 120 million, General Motors - 35 million, ITT investments amounted to 30 million, and Ford 17,5 million dollars
                    Even after the United States entered World War II on December 11, 1941, American corporations continued to actively fulfill orders from firms of enemy countries. Very often, American corporations without problems received permits to work with enemy firms and supplied them with the necessary steel, engines, aviation fuel, rubber, radio components ... So the power of the military industry of Germany and its allies was supported by the economic activities of the United States, whose companies earned extra profits.
                    The powerful Standard Oil regularly supplied the Hitler army with various fuels, and supplied the industry with synthetic rubber and various raw materials. Moreover, in the United States during the war there were serious problems with the supply of synthetic rubber for American industry. The Standard Oil war did not stop using British intermediaries to sign a contract with I. G. Ferbinidustri ", which allowed the production of aviation gasoline in Germany. So the Luftwaffe planes that bombed the peaceful cities of the Soviet Union, Great Britain, killed British and American soldiers, received gasoline created by the American corporation. During the Second World War, not a single Standard Oil tanker was sunk by German submarines.

                    Almost until the end of the war, with special permission to trade with Germany, Italy, Japan, the American ITT conducted its business. Ford did not stop production in France after the German occupation. The activities of the concern in Europe were personally sponsored by Hermann Goering, who headed the Reichswerk Hermann Goering industrial concern. These are far from all examples of cooperation between large US businesses and Nazi Germany during the war.

                    The Wehrmacht had weapons and shells, smelted and made from strategic raw materials sold by the US business. during the war the same Germany ...

                    The United States and Britain opened a second front ... And how many of our people died before it, and how many of ours died saving their "second front" when the Nazis pressed them and our troops launched an early offensive?

                    And if we talk about "aid" from the United States and England, this aid was paid for by the Union with gold and museum antiques ...

    The common people of America, and of other states of the anti-Hitler coalition, can conditionally be divided into two categories - those who know history and those to whom all are poorer. Unfortunately, the latter are much larger. And here, when schoolchildren on the streets of Moscow were asked questions about US assistance in the Second World War (at least economic, but you can’t get anywhere else), many people mooed or carried nonsense (there are a lot of examples on the internet). And what about the First World ??? I should be ashamed of them all for their dedicated memory.

      Do we have much to say about this? Even now, I do not speak for Soviet times. I finished school at the Union, so there Lend-Lease deliveries were mentioned in passing, and only with reference to the polar convoys. About the trans-Iranian route and the transfer of aircraft through Alaska, I learned much later. The film was recently shot about it, so why not show it?
      Quote: avg-mgn
      (at least economic, but you can’t get anywhere from this)

      And there is no need to go anywhere, we paid for everything. The question is the timeliness of this assistance. When we needed it most urgently (summer 1942), there was practically no help. The second front was not opened and the convoy PQ-17 was merged (the references to the Tirpitz, which went out to sea, are ridiculous). If that convoy had come, you see, and the battle for Stalingrad would have gone differently. Then every patron was counted.

    I went with my Grandfathers to the Immortal Regiment! It was joyful, solemn ... there are not enough words, a lump in my throat! Tajiks were walking next to me, a little farther away was a family of Uzbeks who saw the flag of Turkmenistan in a column. And by last name - that’s how the whole USSR went! We fought together and marched together!
    Upset - one of the diasporas "formed" its own column! A little off to the side ... I hope they just "got organized ..."
    I would like to remind them - the war was DOMESTIC and VICTORY - ONE FOR ALL! Their grandfathers were citizens of the USSR and they fought together in the same units as Russians, Ukrainians, Tajiks, Chukchi, Uzbeks, Belarusians, and Kyrgyz. Close to everyone!

    Upset - one of the diasporas "formed" its own column! A little off to the side ... I hope they just "got organized ..."

    The Wehrmacht had weapons and shells, smelted and made from strategic raw materials sold by the US business. during the war the same Germany ...

    I wonder how the Americans supplied this very raw material to Germany. what Probably separate ocean convoys to the English applause.

    The United States and Britain opened a second front ... And how many of our people died before it, and how many of ours died saving their "second front" when the Nazis pressed them and our troops launched an early offensive?

    If you are talking about the Ardennes operation, then the Red Army began the offensive on January 12, 1945, the Germans in Belgium by this time had already retreated for 9 days with heavy losses. So, the statement "the allies were begging to save" is a strong exaggeration.

    And if we talk about "aid" from the United States and England, this aid was paid for by the Union with gold and museum antiques ...

    During the war, only purchases made in excess of the lend-lease program were paid in gold. Lend-Lease supplies were not paid until the end of the war.
