After reading through a whole bunch of WWII stories that I found through this blog (here, here, and here, all in Russian), after being moved to tears by a number of them, after finally managing to pick two texts for a GV translation - after all this, I don't really want to think of what Moscow was like today/yesterday, on May 9. It's such an embarrassment - and, in many ways, such an outrage. What this regime is trying to accomplish by letting the freaks rally all they want is totally beyond me.
More pics later (I hope).
It's absolutely unbelievable how people can glorify a murderer.
In my many years of life on this planet, I have come to understand that you can't hold what a person has been taught and how they think against them.You can attempt to understand them and help them to understand you, however what and how they think as a rule stays with them.ReplyDelete

I beg to differ.
In fact, I very strongly disagree.
People gather facts, change opinions, and - come to conclusions.
In fact, people --- "convert."
After all, people - chose - to worship Lenin, or Stalin, or Hitler, in the first place.
With all the information available today, there is simply no excuse for worshipping a Hitler, or a Stalin, or others of similar ilk.
No excuse at all.
I am about to finish Anthony Beevor's "Fall of Berlin. 1945." Had a blood cooling realization that Russia is turning into Stalin's USSR...or the Third Reich(without it's military power). How can people not see it???ReplyDelete
Today is the launch of the world's first ever dual-language "Blog-Carnival Russian media". All English-speaking and German-speaking bloggers are invited to publish contributions on the Russian media on their weblogs between 1 and 30 June 2007 (see more www.krusenstern.ch/p716.html).ReplyDelete
The launch date for the "Blog-Carnival Russian Media" has not been chosen by chance for today, 11 May 2007 , the "Novaya Gazeta", one of the last independent newspapers in the Russian Federation , is to be awarded the renowned "Henri Nannen Prize" 2007 in Hamburg for its services to press freedom.
The aim of the Blog-Carnival is to gather together as many different viewpoints and pieces of information as possible on the subject of the Russian media. Behind this initiative is the notion that the closer we get to the Russian parliamentary elections in October 2007 and the presidential elections in March 2008, the more the Putin government is clamping down on the media in Russia.
This Blog-Carnival is an opportunity for bloggers of both East and West to learn about the media that appear in the Russian Federation or report on it from abroad. The Blog Carnival will therefore bring the contributing bloggers new information, new contacts and a stronger network transcending national borders and language barriers (see more www.krusenstern.ch/p716.html)
I know a lot of people even in Estonia who thinks a Stalin as a good guy. & even more peole who thinks that Estonians loved Hitler. How sad is that... no cure for these people... they just close the eyes for facts..ReplyDelete
Elmer, I understand what you are saying. I Honestly do. It would seem that people would learn and understand as well. However the proof in in the Photos, some people just refuse to understand.ReplyDelete
