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...

Vienna, Alps and Danube Must Be Remembered

April 13, 1945 at 21.00 hours (Moscow time) Moscow saluted with 24 artillery salvoes from 324 guns the gallant troops of the 3rd Ukrainian Front which captured the city of Vienna... The Soviet casualties were 168 thousand men (death toll - 38661). The Soviet War Memorial in Vienna, more formally known as the Heldendenkmal der Roten Armee (English: Heroes' Monument of the Red Army), is located at Schwarzenbergplatz... The Heroes' Monument of the Red Army in Vienna was built to commemorate 17,000 Soviet soldiers who fell in the Battle for Vienna. The memorial is still in place and kept in good condition. Austria is not in a hurry to revise the history...

April 12 – Black Day in History of US Aviation

There are two reasons why April 12 is considered to be a black day in the history of US aviation. It is the day when Vostok aircraft led by astronaut Yuri Gagarin, the first human to journey into outer space, completed an orbit flight around the Earth in 1961. The other event was not that much in spotlight. Exactly ten years before Gagarin made his flight, Russian aces under the command of Ivan Kozhedub, a Hero of the Soviet Union on three occasions who commanded the 324th Fighter Air Division, dissipated the myth of invulnerability of B-29 Superfortress, a four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber... The engagement took place on April 12, 1951 during the war in Korea...

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...

70-th Anniversary of Gdansk Liberation

...The post-war history of Gdansk, liberated on March 30, shows that some people have a really poor memory. Gdansk, or the free city of Danzig, had never been part of Polish state till the Versailles Treaty of 1919 that gave Poland access to the Baltic Sea. Germans had accounted for the larger part of population... The USSR did much more than just liberate Polish cities. Thanks to the position of the Soviet Union taken at the Potsdam conference the Poland’s territory was increased by at least a third in comparison with what it had been before the war. Danzig was incorporated into Poland. That’s what Poles appear to forget nowadays. They feel no gratitude towards Russia. And they seem not to remember how cruelly they treated the Germans residing in Danzig...

Liberation of Europe: Siege of Budapest

The Battle of Budapest (October 29, 1944 till February 13, 1945) was a great battle of WWII. The victory paved the way for liberation of Hungary, destruction of the Hitler’s coalition in Europe and blockade of German forces in the Balkans... The Soviet 2d and 3d Ukrainian Fronts were confronted by German Army Group South, part of Group Center and the army of Hungary, the last ally of Nazis in Europe... The Hungarian capital was encircled. Hitler ordered Obergruppenfuehrer-SS Karl Pfeffer-Wildenbruch to fight to the last. The storm started on December 26, 1944 to continue for the next two months. For comparison, Berlin was captured in two weeks...

Liberation of Poland: the Man who Saved Krakow

Krakow, the ancient capital of Poland, has recently celebrated the 70 th anniversary of the city's liberation from fascist Germany. The festivities devoted to the date included city excursions and seminars organized by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Experts on local history and museum staff tried to shy away from comments... The city museum of history adopted a derisive attitude naming an exhibition «Liberation or Subjugation?».. This is a brazen lie. The ancient Polish city avoided the devastation thanks to two people. Ivan Konev, the Marshal of the Soviet Union, gave an order not to use heavy artillery to avoid damage during the battle to liberate Krakow... There is another person the city owes its very existence to. His name is not mentioned in Krakow at all...

Liberation of Poland: What People without Shame Would Like to Forget

...It’s a pity that today Poland has forgotten the well-known words of Winston Churchill, who said, «Without the Russian armies Poland would have been destroyed or enslaved, and the Polish nation itself would have been wiped from the face of the earth. But the valiant Russian armies are liberating Poland, and no other forces in the world could have done so». Today they try to shy away from mentioning the fact that over 600 thousand Soviet soldiers gave their lives for liberation of Poland from Nazis...

Merkel Is Erasing May 9, 1945 from the National Memory

...For the Russian people, the German chancellor’s refusal to attend the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow is a very serious sign that soon Germans might refuse to acknowledge the victory over Nazism. Germany’s political ranks are shifting to a new plane of political existence. The Germans are implanting a prosthetic, artificial memory, with which they can begin to revive the plans for building a «new order» in Europe.

US External Debt and its Largest Foreign Holders

...It makes sense to replace the currency (especially the dollar) component of international reserves because the era of cheap gold in the world is coming to an end. A sharp increase in the price of gold is anticipated. This is indirectly indicated by events like the end of the London Gold Fix in March 2015. The world is moving over to a new, more liberal system for setting gold prices. In these new conditions, Russia has a big advantage over other countries – it is one of the leading gold-producing countries.
