1 May 2016. Victory Day is On Its Way… Some of the Victors are Still with Us!

______________________________

Some of the VOV vets are still here with us, albeit elderly. Here’s VOV Vet Pavel Filatovich Abryutin (he’s wearing a railwayman’s uniform) with his wife Feofaniya Spiridonovna Abryutina (retired worker/rear-area toiler during the VOV)… their marriage lasted for 67 years, so far.

Thank you, Grandpa for the Victory!

Thank all the vets of the Anti-Hitler Coalition… some are still left in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, and France. They all put down the fascist beast. It’s not their fault that Truman betrayed the Victory at the behest of Churchill… they put the fascist beast down. The vets beat the fascists… Truman allied the West with them. Nasty piece of work, wasn’t he?

Give honour to the victors… they won’t be with us much longer. We owe so much to them…

They all faces… they all had names

No one is forgotten… nothing is forgotten

Greetings and felicitations from the Evil Empire! SHUDDER!

Isn’t that a bit ridiculous… yet, both shades of Neoliberal filth (“conservative” and Liberal) broadcast lies about the USSR and about socialism. In fact, the Soviet people wanted peace… they had a disastrous war on their land and they didn’t want another. However, the Western corporate nabobs wanted MORE… so, the USSR had to defend itself against Western aggression and lies. They had to put much of their economic potential into defence to ward off Anglo threats. This is what Soviet people wanted… a peaceful life for their kids… a dignified retirement for their oldsters… a fair deal for everybody. Did they get that? Not completely… but the Anglos never tell you that the Affluent Effluent and the One Percent took more than their share of the West’s national wealth… so, things weren’t as rosy here as some claimed. However, it wasn’t as bad as the Neoliberal Hell ushered in by Reagan and cemented by the Clintons.

THIS is the true face of the USSR… aren’t you ashamed of having fallen for crapitalist lies about it (I am… I’m honest enough to admit it, too)…

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…
