«Освобождение Польши: Цена Победы» (The Liberation of Poland: The Cost of Victory)

________________________

The Minoborony Rossii published a unique collection of archival documents from 1944-45, declassified in 2017, on the topic of the liberation of Poland by the Red Army from German fascist occupation. The project «Освобождение Польши: Цена Победы» (Osvobozhdenie Polshi: Tsena Pobedy.  The Liberation of Poland: The Cost of Victory) is a compilation of unique historical documents from the Minoborony Rossii Central Archives on the liberation of occupied Poland by the Red Army during the VOV. They show the interaction between Soviet soldiers and commanders with the liberated Polish population. Amongst the declassified material are battle dispatches, memoranda, reports, references, orders, and telegrams… impartial evidence of the bloody fighting undertaken by the Red Army in the liberation of a fraternal republic, a true account of the occupiers’ relationship with the local population, and the attitude of the Poles to their liberators… the soldiers of the Red Army.

For the first time, users of this official Minoborony Rossii website will be able to consult material that documents the truth of the situation, how the Polish people and clergy greeted the Red Army, how the Polish people genuinely cared for the graves of Soviet soldiers who died in the liberation of Poland, and how they vowed to perpetuate the Red Army’s podvig* in monuments for future generations. Of special interest are memoranda and reports of the Red Army Political Department that record numerous cases of mass destruction, looting, and torture of Poles by the Nazis, along with the occupiers’ wanton barbaric destruction of towns and cultural heritage objects. The declassified evidence shows that the Red Army had to fight hard to liberate Poland, almost literally for every single square kilometre. The dry official figures give the story of the heavy losses suffered by the 1 Ukrainian Front in one month of the fighting to liberate Poland.

  • 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.

10 July 2016. People Without Honour…

Banderovtsy: People Without Honour. Remember the Calamity (of 1944).

The above is a poster on a hoarding in Poland. It recalls the genocidal massacre of ethnic Poles by Galician Uniate nationalists during the VOV in the Kresy. The Uniate extremists killed people simply for being Polish… nothing else mattered to them. They also killed Belorussians, Russians, Roma, Jews, Rusins, and even Galicians who opposed their fascist ideology. These people run the notional “Ukraine” today. May God cut their time short to lessen the suffering of the innocents (which includes most of the Uniates, who oppose fascism as much as any group of normal people do).

21 April 2015. The Workers and Peasants Red Army Liberated the Death Camps… Galician Uniate Nationalists Helped Run Them… and That’s Not “Deceitful Russian Propaganda”

00 Holocaust memorial day 2015. 16.04.15

______________________________

The Galician Uniates are screaming about “deceitful Russian propaganda”… well, in 1945 the Workers and Peasants Red Army LIBERATED Oświęcim… Galician Uniate nationalists helped run the camp and they rounded-up people for the Nazis. I seem to see a difference there. The people who honour Lenin, honour the Red Army heroes who liberated the camps. The people who honour Bandera and the UPA, honour those who helped the Nazis run the camps. That’s not “deceitful Russian propaganda”…

Last Sobibór Death Camp Survivor Dies in Russia

_______________________________

On Thursday, Lyudmila Zakharova, the head of the local Jewish cultural centre, said that the last-known living survivor of the Sobibór death camp died at the age of 92 in Ryazan (Ryazan Oblast. Central Federal District) RF. The burial of Aleksei Vaitsen, who lost all his family in Nazi death camps during World War II, will be on 16 January. Vaitsen took part in the uprising of Sobibór prisoners in 1943, one of the two successful revolts at Nazi death camps. After the war, he appeared as a witness at the trial of Sobibór officers. The Nazis murdered at least 250,000 people in Sobibór, in eastern Poland.

Editor:

Russia honours the victims of the Nazi beasts… Ukrainian neofascists honour those who helped the Nazis push Jews in the ovens. Diaspora “Ukrainians” sheltered war criminals and whitewashed their legacy. I call that evil… I’m not alone. The commies brought a few of the Ukrainian guards who served at Sobibór to trial in the USSR. In April 1963, a court in Kiev found ten former Ukrainian guards guilty and sentenced them to death, one of the defendants received 15 years in prison. That’s a major reason the Ukie neofascists hate the USSR and communists… the Sovs hunted down Nazi collaborators who helped in the Holocaust and communists preached (and preach) against the racism of Nazism and neofascism (the Galician collaborators who aided the Holocaust were hardly philo-Semitic). If you support the present Ukrainian junta, you’re a Holocaust Denier… let’s not put too fine a face upon it.

Light a candle in Aleksei’s memory… the fact that he wasn’t a Christian doesn’t matter. You can commemorate whom you will when you light a candle in the church. Say a prayer for the rest of his soul… we’re Christians… that’s what we do.
