I would like to remind our communists and their fans that we should more often look in the mirror. I want to remind our comrades the Communists of the great commanders who were awarded the Order of Victory. These are Zhukov, Vasilevsky, Stalin, Konev, Rokossovsky, Govorov, Malinovsky, Tolbukhin. Tymoshenko, Antonov, Meretskov. In 1945, 5 foreigners became holders of the order: Marshal Josip Broz Tito (Yugoslavia), Marshal of Poland Michal Rola-Zimersky, Army General Dwight David Eisenhower (USA), Field Marshal Bernard Low Montgomery (United Kingdom), King of Romania Mihai I.
If the first four foreigners, as a former citizen of the Soviet Union, do not cause great doubts, then the king of Romania, who was an ally of Hitler, is incomprehensible to me in this list. How is it different from Mannerheim?
22 June 1941 on the Soviet-Romanian border was concentrated in the first echelon around 325 000 Romanian soldiers and officers. On June 30, about 200 thousand troops were concentrated on the Soviet-Finnish border in the 1 echelon. Romania and Finland practically came out of the war at the same time, both subsequently participating in battles against the Germans. Why did you give the Order of Victory to the King of Romania? The documents say: for the courageous act of decisively turning the policy of Romania towards a break with Hitler Germany and an alliance with the United Nations at the time when the defeat of Germany was not yet clearly defined.
The USSR truce concluded September 12 with Romania, September 19 with Finland. Was it not spitting into the soul of our people? Or the activities of the leadership of the USSR is not subject to criticism? Why no one demands to return the Order of Victory? Where did the "mind, honor and conscience of our age" look?
I repeat, I am against the establishment of the Mannerheim memorial plaque, but I want to ask the communists: what about the order in court?
