The victory against the Nazis will forever be the Victory of the Red Army


I’m reminding the citizens of the countries which are now fighting against Russia: over a million Soviet soldiers sacrificed their lives for peace and freedom from fascism in Europe. 600 thousand citizens of the USSR died, liberating Poland from fascism; 380 thousand gave their lives liberating Czechia and Hungary, over a 100 thousand – Germany.
Unfortunately, today’s Europe and its squalid leaders have a very short memory. But we will always remember the heroes of the Second World War. Our country eradicated fascism in 1945. Have no doubt: in present-day Europe, we will crush the hideous Bandera neo-nazism, cherished so dearly by the heirs of the third reich in the EU. For the sake of the memory of our fathers and grandfathers.

Happy Great Victory Day!
