- "The true figure of Russian losses needs to
be thoroughly researched and reassessed, and may well turn out to be 80%
less, that is just over five million. It will be recalled that Bolshevik
propaganda was formulated on the principle of telling mammoth lies."
- At the Nuremberg trials in November 1945, the Russian
delegation announced that the Soviet Union had lost approximately 26 million
people (9.2 million military personnel and 16.8 million civilians,) and
that this loss would entitle them to extract maximum revenge at the expense
of a prostrate Germany and her innocent leaders. Furthermore this gigantic
loss was used to justify the expropriation of vast swathes of central and
eastern European territory.
- But are these figures credible? The alleged loss of
9.2 million Russian military personnel exceeds the losses of the German
military (5.5 million) by 3.7million. The deaths of 16.8 million civilians
are even more perplexing. 632,000 persons are estimated to have died during
the siege of Leningrad (872 days), but how does one account for the other
- Not a single mass grave has been discovered in Russian
territory held by the Germans to date. On the contrary almost all mass
graves found in central Europe contain the remains of Germans and their
allies, Katyn being the exception; while the mass graves in the Ukraine
contain many of the estimated six million victims of Stalin's induced Holodomor.
- The einsatzgruppen, who were employed to deal with partisans,
have often been accused of having murdered civilians on a mass scale, but
they never numbered more than 3 000 at any one time, and that includes
cooks and orderlies.
- When German panzers advanced into the Baltic states and
the Ukraine, they were greeted as liberators by enthusiastic, cheering
crowds and were frequently showered with flowers. One of the first acts
of the German army was to reopen the Russian Orthodox churches. A decision
intended to befriend rather than antagonize the population.
- Tens of thousands of Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Carelians,
Cossacks, Estonians, Georgians, Latvians, Lithuanaians, Ruthenians, Tartars,
Turkomans and Ukrainians volunteered to serve in the German Wehrmacht and
Waffen SS. Furthermore, Lieutenant General Andrey Vlasov raised an
army of over one million Russian prisoners of war, many of whom fought
with distinction under the old imperial flag against the invading Soviet
army in East Prussia.
- Germany had only a small window of opportunity to have
carried out any alleged extermination campaign against civilians from June
1941 to October 1942. Thereafter she was forced to fight a desperate war
of retreat, outnumbered on the war front by at least five to one.
- The true figure of Russian losses needs to be thoroughly
researched and reassessed, and may well turn out to be 80% less, that is
just over five million. It will be recalled that Bolshevik propaganda
was formulated on the principle of telling mammoth lies.
- On 9 May every year, a tasteless parade is held in Moscow
to celebrate "victory". A victory over whom and for what purpose.
Does it celebrate a further 46 years of ruthless communist rule inflicted
upon a hapless Russian people or the senseless, suicidal slaughter of tens
of millions of Europeans? None of the belligerents is entitled to claim
the status of victor. The only victors were the international bankers,
who instigated and promoted World War II in order to destroy the freedom-loving
Germans and Japanese, who had broken their chains of usury.
