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...

Heroizing UPA: Polish Government against Its Own People

On October 14, Petro Poroshenko signed a decree proclaiming October 14 to be the day of celebrating Day of Defender of Ukraine instead of the post-Soviet analogous holiday celebrated on February 23. This day the Ukrainian neo-Nazi traditionally march with torches to mark the anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. The decision sparked a wave of indignation in Poland. Protests hit the streets, the demonstrators picketed the Ukraine’s diplomatic offices demanding to stop heroization of OUN-UPA that is responsible for killing thousands of Poles during WWII. Protesters marched in Przemyśl, Krakow, Wroclaw and Warsaw under the slogan «Lasting Shame to OUN – UPA Murderers from SS Division Galicia»...

Poland: Victim of Colonial ambitions

The emergence of contemporary Poland on the world map started with a military intervention. In March 1919 it attacked Russia devastated by the First World War and civil conflict. Having captured Kiev, Vilna and Minsk, Poland was not strong enough to go to Moscow and write on the Kremlin wall that speaking Russia was forbidden as Pilsudsky wanted... Poland saw itself as a great power, it dreamed of African colonies. It did not have enough «living space»... By the time Poland had internal colonies – Western Ukraine and Belarus. The occupied lands were subject to tough policy of colonization.  Poland was willingly cleansing East Kresy of foreigners: Jews, Belarusians.  Anti-Bolshevik sentiments gave rise to rampant anti-Semitism.  The authorities inspired Jewish pogroms. After Poland was occupied by Germany joint German-Polish patrols hunted for Jews... An impartial look at the past would no doubt stand the country’s elite of today a good stead as they proudly speak about the period between the two world wars...

Dragon Teeth to Be Planted All Over Europe Again

It’s an open secret that Adolf Hitler was connived at by the United States. The US penetration was significant and intensive, especially its cooperation with the German war industry. By 1993 the United States controlled key branches of Germany’s economy, as well as large banks such as Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Bank, Donut Bank etc.  Big business started to trust Hitler... British business also started to give donations to Fuhrer and his Nazi party... The new German government was treated extremely favorably by US and UK ruling circles... I will repeat that the Kiev junta is not in the same league with the Hitler’s regime. But, history proves that the ulcer of Nazism mixed with the poisonous substance of Russophobia grows rapidly, and sooner or later it will be on its own beyond the control of those who encouraged it...

Yemen or Iran: Which One is in US Sights?

...Saying yes to the operation against the Shia movement Ansar Allah (Houthis) Americans risk facing «unexpected consequences» one more time. No doubt the Houthi movement is the only force in Yemen able to counter the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and the Islamic State (IS). The Yemen’s overthrown President Hadi was blamed for his close ties with Sunni radicals connected to AQAP and IS. As soon as the Houthis came to power, the AQAP militants gave an oath of allegiance to the Islamic State and started to fight the Houthis. Once again Obama aims at wrong terrorists...
