Golden Prague was Liberated by Soviet Tanks

The act of unconditional capitulation signed on May 9, 1945 did not put an end to hostilities in Europe... The new government of Gross Admiral (Grand Admiral) Karl Dönitz resisted the Soviet troops in the western and central parts of Czechoslovakia... On May 10-11 three Ukrainian fronts continued to move west. On May 11, the Soviet forces met the 3d US Army at Karlsbad-Plzen-Klatovy-Ceske Budejovice (Budweis) line. The last Soviet offensive in Europe was over. Unlike many other European capitals Prague cherishes the memory of its liberators. Milos Zeman, the President of Czech Republic, happened to be the only EU leader to ignore the peremptory shout from Washington and visit Moscow to mark the 70 th anniversary of Great Victory.

War Threat Rises as Economy Declines

...Washington’s aggression and blatant propaganda have convinced Russia and China that Washington intends war, and this realization has drawn the two countries into a strategic alliance. Russia’s May 9 Victory Day celebration of the defeat of Hitler is a historical turning point. Western governments boycotted the celebration, and the Chinese were there in their place. For the first time Chinese soldiers marched in the parade with Russian soldiers, and the president of China sat next to the president of Russia...

Great Victory. Height to Be Kept at Any Price!

...Karlshorst is a locality in the borough of Lichtenberg in Berlin. The ceremony was taking place on May 9, 1945, 0.43 Moscow time, in the former dining room of a 'Pionier-Schule' (military academy of the Germany army) in Berlin – Karlshorst. The unconditional surrender of Germany was signed by General Feld Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, the chief of Supreme Command of the Armed Forces, General Admiral Georg von Friedburg, the supreme commander of the navy, Colonel General Hans-Jürgen Stumpff, a representative of the air force. Marshall of the Soviet Union Georg Zhukov, who chaired the ceremony, asked the German delegation to leave the room. Then he cordially congratulated the representatives of allies...

Reparations from World War II: That Case Is Not Yet Closed

...Reparations from the era of the Second World War have not reemerged as a subject of discussion since 1975 when the Helsinki Accords were signed. However, in the late twentieth century the West unilaterally shattered the Yalta-Potsdam system of international relations and circumvented the precepts that had been formalized in the Helsinki Accords in 1975. With this in mind, it makes sense to refresh our collective memory regarding the history of German reparations and resubmit the bill that resulted from that war, which Germany has never paid in full.

Breslau and Dresden to Be Liberated After Berlin

…Germany was losing one line of defense after another; the government led by Karl Dönitz replaced the government of Hitler who committed suicide. Berlin fell. But the forces concentrated in Breslau continued to resist. There were different reasons. The Goebbels propaganda promised a “miracle weapon” to change the tide of war. There were hopes the anti-Germany alliance would split apart leading to the start of separate talks between Germany and Anglo-Americans

The Economic Price of the Soviet Victory in the Great Patriotic War

The West continues to disavow the USSR’s momentous contribution to the defeat of Nazi Germany and her satellites. But there is documentary proof that can refute any speculation on this subject. Suffice it to point to the economic price of the victory won by the people of the Soviet Union...The USSR bore the burden of 53% of all the military expenditures and direct economic damages to the four victorious countries (USSR, USA, Great Britain, and France). Stalin was exactly right when he suggested at the Yalta Conference that half of all the German reparations should be paid to the Soviet Union...

Berlin Fell!

The seizure of Reichstag started by the early morning of the 30th, 1945. The 150th and 171st rifle divisions of the 3d Army led by Army General V. Kuznetsov were advancing to the building of German parliament - Reichstag. A fierce battle raged on during the whole day. A group led by Lieutenant A. Berest was ordered to clean the building and install the banner of Army’s military council at the top. The sergeants from this unit Meliton Kantaria and Mikhail Yegorov raised the Soviet flag over the Reichstag late at night on May 1...The Berlin garrison capitulated on May 2. But he war continued…

Bern Incident or End of Аnti-Hitler Coalition

It’s not about tearing up agreements only. The Anglo-American allies did not exclude (as the recent days of the war showed) the possibility of using German prisoners of war against the Soviet Union... To slow down the Red Army’s advance to Europe, Anglo-American allies were constantly involved in unseemly actions like trying to hold separate talks with Nazis... Holding separate talks was forbidden by accords concluded between the USSR, the United States and Great Britain... The USSR achieved victory over Nazi Germany together with coalition allies which held a stone inside their shirt. This fact is irrefutable...

Elbe Meeting: 70 Years After

...The Elbe meeting of comrades-in-arms fighting the same enemy was a historic event. But differences remained. They became more visible as the end of war was approaching... Thousands of Russian soldiers were shedding blood near Berlin to bring closer the end of war and save lives of US and British servicemen. At the very same time Winston Churchill gave an order to work out a plan of war against the Soviet Union (Operation Unthinkable) to impose on Moscow the will of the United States and the British Empire! The Red Army’s ally held a stone inside his shirt...

Ukraine and UN: Yatsenyuk Tells a Big Lie

Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk accused Russia of «privatizing» the victory in Great Patriotic War. «Ukraine is a winner country in the Second World War and the original member of the United Nations», stressed Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk... It’s easier to sell a big lie if there is some truth in it. The Ukrainian Republic was an original member of the United Nations as part of the Soviet Union. It was not an entity under international law, it did not fight fascist Germany independently and cannot be considered a winner in the war. For instance, no state of the United States of America could claim to be a winner in the war or a founder of UN...

UK Conservatives in another ‘Victory’ for British Establishment

For the past 100 years, Britain has been ruled for most decades under the Conservative party. The Tories can be thus considered the «establishment party» of British politics. This dominance is not simply a reflection of democratic choice by the British electorate. It is rather because Britain’s system of parliamentary democracy is one of the most regressive and anti-democratic among modern nation states. In many ways, Britain’s ruling establishment has prevailed again and again – in spite of democratic choice...
