Germany: The National Memory and the Second World War

The West believes that the anniversaries of the main events of World War Two have already been celebrated after organising a theatrical performance dedicated to the Normandy landings... In the run-up to the 70-year anniversary, some German newspapers introduced a special section devoted to history, publishing materials related to the Second World War. As a general rule, these publications serve to reinforce the old stereotypes in the German collective memory, sometimes giving them new shades. Recognition of the German people’s guilt for the Holocaust is still the centre of attention... The fact that the war in the East was radically different from the war waged by the Third Reich in the West has been completely forgotten. In the East, the Germans waged a war of annihilation (Vernichtungskrieg) against the USSR...

Christians Fleeing the Pseudo-Islamist Blood Cult of the «Islamic State»

There’s not many groups that the pseudo-Islamist blood cult known as the «Islamic State» or Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have not targeted for genocide. However, the Middle East’s ancient Christian community has fared worse under Islamic State occupation than have Syrian and Iraqi Kurds, Shi’a Muslims, Syrian Alawites, moderate Sunni Muslims, and Palestinian refugees... Thousands of Christians have fled their historic cities, towns, and monastic communities for safety in other countries outside the rule of the self-proclaimed Islamic «caliphate» of ISIL, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi...

70-th Anniversary of Victory. Fundamental Treatise on the History of Russia's 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War Came Out in Russia

In not so distant 2008 Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Ministry of Defence to prepare for publication the twelve volumes of the treatise titled The 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War. The mission is accomplished – the 12th volume has come out recently... The new edition offers hundreds of the documents that have been found during the recent twenty years in the archive of President of Russian Federation, the Russian State Archive of Socio-Political History (RGASPI), the Central Archive of the Russian Ministry of Defence and other national and foreign archives... The statistics adduced in the treatise show that the Great Patriotic War was the main event of the Second World War. The Soviet Union bore the brunt of effort to rout the Nazi Germany and its European allies...

Contest of Absurdity and Victory Day

All the proposals to mark the Victory Day in any other place but the capital of the Soviet Union/Russia – the leading victorious power in the main war of the 20th century - look like an absurdity contest... It’s always dangerous to mix things up - something being done by those who have started the discourse imposing lies about the «Russian aggression» before the celebration of the victory over fascist Germany. It will inevitably backlash against Europe. It knows what it is to foster Nazism. It did it once.

Dresden and Poznan: Two Different Ways to Wage War

The Red Army and British-American forces had one enemy - the German Wehrmacht but quite often they waged different wars. The liberation of Polish city of Poznan by Red Army and the bombing of Dresden by allies – one event following another in a week - took place 70 years ago, February 1945. These examples provide a good illustration to support the point of view stated above...

Yalta – 1945 Cannot Be Repeated in 2015

The current Western leaders thoughtlessly squander the legacy of Yalta left by the Big Three Alliance that saved the world from total enslavement by Nazism 70 years ago. It was the principle of equality that enabled the Alliance to act effectively. Today the world faces no less serious challenges. The West’s attempts to isolate Russia may make the contemporary problems insurmountable.

Hypocrisy Empire (II)

This is the year of great events in the United States as the country marks the 150-year anniversary of the Civil War. No other moment of American history has influenced more its national self-identification. The war has become an inalienable part of political mythology and a symbol of atonement as the country washed away the sin of slavery established in the society since the nation was born. It is perceived as the triumph of good over evil. In reality it was not a war to free slaves - this perception has nothing to do with real historic events and shows how hypocritical the whole US national ideology is. The free interpretation of national history to foster the self-esteem of Americans and the US prestige leads to the same attitude practiced by American researchers toward the historic heritage of other countries as well...

US: Kicking Vietnam Syndrome Once and for All

The US is set to roll out a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War... The United States Vietnam War Commemoration website omits something important – the history of post-war protest movement that hit the streets of US cities in the 1960-1970s. Nothing is said about the persecution of anti-war activists many of whom were war vets... According to Marjorie Cohn, a professor of law at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, San Diego, California, and a former President of the National Lawyers Guild, one of the most shameful legacies of the Vietnam War is the US military's use of the deadly defoliant Agent Orange, dioxin... War crimes - such as the My Lai (part of Song My village located in South Vietnam's Quang Ngai Province) massacre - were common. In 1968, US soldiers slaughtered 500 unarmed old men, women and children aged from 1 to 82 years old in the Vietnamese village of My Lai...

Partition of Germany and Devastation of Ukraine: Can Parallels be Drawn?

...The ensued partition of Germany at the end of 1940s took place upon the initiative of Western powers, not the Soviet Union. At that, the unification of Germany in 1990 was impossible without Moscow’s benevolent attitude.  Now the question is: who threatens the European security today? Is it Russia, the successor to the Soviet Union, the winner in WWII, the country which is known to be a consistent opponent of Neo-Nazism in any form? Or those who connive at the revival of Neo-Nazism in the heart of the continent under the pretext of integrating Ukraine into Europe as they supposedly share the same values? Is it not the pattern of defeated Germany that the West uses to destroy the state of Ukraine today?

On Rewriting the History of the Second World War and Reviving Reparation Claims

The basic principles and terms of the reparation payments made by Germany and her allies were determined in 1945 at the Yalta and Potsdam conferences. For the USSR, the subject of German reparations was closed in 1953 when Moscow outright refused reparation deliveries from the German Democratic Republic and began paying for them at Comecon (Council for Mutual Economic Assistance) prices. Owing to the division of Germany and a number of other reasons, no general records were even set up for Germany’s fulfilment of its reparation obligations. Today, the German government does not have accurate information regarding its reparations and is using little more than certain expert estimates...

West and Soros Rely on «Extreme Balkanization» to Prevent Turkish Stream Pipeline

The Obama administration interventionists, content in the knowledge that they have, at least, another year-and-a-half remaining in power, have decided to resort to extreme ethnic-based Balkanization to throw up a road block to the Russian "Turkish Stream" pipeline that is to bring natural gas from Russia through Turkey and into Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, and Hungary.  The Obama administration has set about to foment another "color revolution," this time in Macedonia...
