14 April 2016. Спасибо деду за победу! Thank You, Grandpa, for the Victory!

______________________________

Here are the real heroes of Victory Day… those who put paid to the fascist beast. The Yanks only landed in France in June 1944, yet they claim that they defeated Hitler. That’s derisable… then, they allied themselves the very Nazis who almost put Europe into a New Dark Age. The USSR bore the brunt of the war against Fascist Germany… just as the USA bore the brunt of the war against Imperial Japan. Facts are facts. Both the USA and USSR fought, but the USSR defeated Germany and the USA defeated Japan… that’s the fairest conclusion that one can come to.

Спасибо деду за победу!

Thank You, Grandpa, for the Victory!

Damn… it rhymes in Russian, but no matter how I “English” it, I can’t do it in English! Damn!

10 April 2016. From the Russian Web… Here’s My Superhero! 28 Days to Victory Day

00 VOV russia heres my superhero100416

________________________________

This is one of the most-recognisable “faces” of Victory Day. A viral meme on the RuNet is “Here’s my superhero!” I’ll only say that one can have real heroes like this or false pseudo-heroes will fill the vacuüm. You can have the true heroes of the Red Army or the gangster “heroes” of the Maidan and the UPA… that be the choice out there…

13 March 2016. New Movie on the Heroic Panfilovtsy of the VOV

______________________________

The “Panfilovtsy” were the men of the 316 Rifle Division (the term Panfilovtsy comes from the name of Major General I V Panfilov, the divisional commander… he fell in battle before Moscow), who helped stop the Nazis in front of Moscow. This new movie, The 28 Panfilovtsev (it’s tough to English this… an idiomatic translation would be The 28 Guys from Panfilov’s Lot or Panfilov’s 28) is a gritty and uncompromising telling of the story of the bravery of the Red Army soldiers who stopped the fascist filth and threw them back to Berlin. The uniforms and equipment are authentic (or made to look authentic)… it’s meant to be an uncompromising unemotional retelling of how Russians beat back Western aggression… that does have contemporary overtones, doesn’t it? After its brave (and quite real) podvig* of resistance against the fascists, the division became the 8 Guards Division Panfilovskaya.

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

Note well that the American “conservative” filth spread lies about the bravery of these men… no Russian or Orthodox Christian can have ANYTHING to do with such amoral greedsters and liars. Why congregate with those who lie about us, believe us inferior, who want to slice our throats, and whose intent is to destroy our faith and culture? The Western irreligious are merely irritants, they’re no existential threat, but Western “conservatives” want to replace the True Faith with treacly “Evangelical” goo and replace godly Slavic coöperation and communitarianism with selfish Anglo greed and godless “Free Markets”. Friends don’t let friends have ANYTHING to do with Republicans or “Evangelicals”…

21 February 2016. “Russians Don’t Want War!” (with English subs)

00 Yuri Gorelov. Do Russians Want War. 1962

Do Russians Want War?

Russians don’t want war… but they’ll fight if the neoliberal “conservative” Anglo warmongers invade… the Anglos will find out what the Teutonic Knights, the Poles, Napoleon, and Hitler found out. Russians love peace… but they’ll never give in to evil aggression… America had best take note…
