10 February 2017. ENGLISH SUBTITLES Peoples Artist of Russia S V Bezrukov Recites Poetry of K M Simonov… Russia’s Spirit Incarnate

“Glory to the Soldier-Liberator!” When (not if) Russia intervenes to put an end to the notional and evil Uniate junta in the Ukraine, this is how most “Ukrainians” will welcome them… as liberators from a feral and criminal oligarch cabal. America had best step aside…

People’s Artist of the Russian Federation S V Bezrukov recites powerful poetry by K M Simonov from the VOV. There are English subtitles… you have to hear the raw emotion that Sergei Vitalyevich gives to Konstantin Mikhailovich’s words. Bezrukov is one of the most-loved and most well-known actors in Russia today… every Russian knows who he is and what he stands for. Sergei Vitalyevich is a patriot, a true son of the Rodina, a modern successor to the great V S Lanovoi… unlike Hollywood, actors in Russia respect and honour the national patrimony. He stands for support of the patriot Peoples Republics in the Donbass… a stance that we should share.

You can stand with the American Establishment (and their running dogs amongst us like Potapov and Kishkovsky) or you can stand with Sergei Vitalyevich. I know where I stand… I confide that I’m far from being alone (although far too many in the American Orthodox diaspora have sold out to Anglo America and its pretty baubles and false non-culture). McCain, Graham, Clinton, Mattis, Mullen, and Trump had best take heed (Trump, so far, has refused to rein in the Uniate murderers… shall he?)… Russia has a record of defeating foreign aggressors…

1942 † Daniil Ivanovich Kyutinen

He was a baker during the siege of Leningrad and died of starvation in 1942 on the job at the age of 59-years-old. He died, but he didn’t eat a single gramme of unrationed bread. His grave is at the Shuvalov Cemetery.

Show me a person’s heroes and I’ll show you their character. D I Kyutinen is a hero, worthy of respect. Godless filth such as Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, and Mike Pence are greedy punks, only intent on grasping as much as they can for themselves. There are people who respect them. What does that tell you about them? Nothing good, I’d warrant…

One of these things is NOT like the other…

23 December 2016. These are MY Heroes… Yekaterina Illarionovna Kalinchuk Demina

____________________________________

Today, 22 December, is the 91st birthday of Yekaterina Illarionovna Kalinchuk Demina… a legendary veteran of the VOV. At 16-years-old, she became a medical orderly in the 369 Separate Naval Infantry Battalion of the Danube Flotilla. She served with that unit throughout the entire war, being at the front in the Caucasus and Stalingrad, ending up in Hungary and Austria. She was a frontline hero, winning not only the Hero of the Soviet Union and the Order of Lenin, but also two Orders of the Red Banner, the Order of the Patriotic War (First Class), and the Medal “For Courage”.

Congratulations, Yekaterina Illarionovna! Happy birthday! We wish you health and many years!

Compare Yekaterina Illarionovna to John McCain… there’s no comparison between a real heroine and a posturing cowboy, is there?  McCain was no coward, but he was no hero either. Old hands warned him many times that his recklessness would end badly, but he refused to listen to his elders and betters (nothing much has changed in him, has it?). The US Navy refused to promote this son and grandson of admirals to flag rank (a friend told me that the Navy didn’t want such a man in command of a task force… they feared that he’d kill others to prove his macho creds). On the other hand, Yekaterina Illarionovna did her duty at the front, showing not only prudence (for she did survive four years of the most-gruelling war ever fought), but also heroism (as her decorations prove to all comers).

I know whom I admire. It’s NOT John McCain. I confide that I’m not alone in thinking that way.

75 Years Ago… the Counterattack at Moscow Began

5 December: The Day of the Beginning of the Counteroffensive by the Soviet Forces in the Battle of Moscow

____________________________________

On this day in Russia, 5 December, we mark a “Day of Military Glory of Russia”; the counterattack by Soviet troops at the Battle of Moscow began on this day. The counterattack, the second phase of the battle of Moscow, started on 5-6 December 1941, with the Kalinin Front hitting Yeltsa. The fighting immediately became bitter and furious. In the early days of the offensive, despite a lack of superiority in manpower and equipment, and despite below-zero temperatures and deep snow cover, the troops on the left-wing and right-wing of the Western Front smashed the fascist defences south of Kalinin, cut highway and rail links to Kalinin, and liberated many towns from the enemy. Simultaneously, troops of the Southwestern Front attacked northwest of Moscow. The Red Army hit the flanks of the fascist Army Group Centre grouped around Moscow, forcing the enemy to regroup and to take measures to save its troops from a débâcle.

On 8 December, Hitler signed a directive to transition to the defence all along the Soviet-German front. Army Group Centre received orders “to retain strategically important areas at any cost”. On 9 December, the Soviet troops liberated Rogachevo, Venev, and Yelets. On 11 December, they freed Stalinogorsk, on 12 December, they cleared Solnechnogorsk, on 13 December, they liberated Yefremov, on 15 December, they entered Klin, on 16 December, they took Kalinin, and 20 December, they occupied Volokolamsk. On 25 December, on a broad front, Soviet troops advanced to Oka. On 28 December, they liberated Kozelsk, on 30 December, they took Kaluga, and in early January 1942, they freed Meshchovsk and Mosalsk.

By the beginning of January 1942, the armies of the right-wing of the Western Front reached the banks of the Lama and Ruza Rivers. By that time, the troops of the Kalinin Front reached Pavlikovo and Staritsa. The troops of the Western Front, in the centre, liberated Naro-Fominsk on 26 December, they freed Maloyaroslavets on 2 January, and entered Borovsk on 4 January. There were also successful counterattacks on the left-wing of the Western Front and by the Bryansk Front (re-established on 18 December 1941, with the 3, 13 and 61 Armies; commanded by General Ya T Cherevichenko, A F Kolobyakov as head commissar, and Major General V Ya Kolpakchy as Chief of Staff). By early January 1942, the Bryansk Front, cooperating with the forces of the left-wing of the Western Front, reached Belev, Mtsensk, and Verkhovye. All this has created a serious situation for the fascist Army Group Centre; it removed the threat looming over Moscow.

The victory of the Soviet troops near Moscow and the beginning of the counteroffensive not only had great military significance, it also had political and international Importance. For the first time in World War II, someone stopped the hitherto-invincible Wehrmacht and defeated it. Today, the date of 5 December is another reason to remember the heroes of that war…
