Viktor Suvorov, author of over a dozen books on the inner workings of the Soviet military apparatus, from the Red Army to the Spetsnaz, put forward the earth shattering thesis in his work ‘Icebreaker’ that Hitler’s invasion of the USSR in 1941 was a pre-emptive strike designed to cut the legs out from under a Russian military machine that was gearing up to invade Europe and then the world. Although highly controversial in places like America, where the people are taught from birth about the triumph of WWII and the necessity of the conflict against Nazi Germany, Suvorov’s thesis has garnered much acclaim in many parts of Europe and even Russia, where the proximity to the reign of terror imposed by the Soviet regime still echoes and people look to explain why the allies seemed to unite with one of the most deadly empires the world has ever seen.
In 1932-33, upwards of 10 million people perished in a widespread famine throughout the Ukraine. Estimates vary, but the staggering death toll is undeniable. The causes are debated intensely by various factions, citing reasons ranging from politically motivated intentional starvation to horrible mismanagement of collectivized farming. But what remains notable is the relative lack of awareness of the events, in contrast with the Holocaust. The Holodomor, or “Death by Starvation”, was easily just as great a tragedy as any other, but perhaps more so, because of the silence surrounding it.

Short video with portraits of Jews from Europe, USA, and Russia. In my view, information has accrued to the truth movement even in the few years since this video was uploaded in 2013. Of course, the video was deleted by Youtube. Information on Marx, Jews c. 1905, Jewish 'revolutionaries', Holodomor, WW2, US 'communists': is all somewhat wrong. I recommend Miles W Mathis for original perceptions.
Note: Bertrand Russell, the 'useful idiot', was part of a campaign to free Rakosi (see Russell's Autobiography).
DRASTIC CHANGES in RUSSIA as IMPERIAL, SOVIET and MODERN are the IMAGES that FITTED this idea for me on 'NOW'. How things WERE and how they ARE is part of NOW. Some GOOD and SOME bad is in the PRESENT. I WROTE and SANG this SONG. ANDREW did the ORCHESTRATION catching the RUSSIAN THEME by INSERTING a BALALAIKA ORCHESTRA along with 'COLD' MINOR CHORD STRINGS like composer PROKOFIEV. We had a lot of FUN doing this COLLABORATION. ANDREW'S ARRANGING and KEYING INTO the STUDIO is SUPERB! I hope YOU like it! K
Biographical documentary about famed Soviet political dissident and writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, following his life from his time in the Red Army during WW2, his time in the GULAGs, and his time as a writer
https://www.unusualfilms.com/10-2/the-printing/ The Printing 1990 David Burke, Dr. Bob Jones Jr., Dr. Edward Panosian, Dr. Richard Rupp, Dr. Lonnie Polson, Janiece Robinson, Ron Pyle Unusual Films Bob Jones University When the Communists and the KGB had a vice grip on Russia, they did everything they could do to stamp out any form of Christianity that did not adhere to their standards. But no matter how hard they tried to control everything, even the churches, they could not control a secret group of underground Christians who was committed to printing the true words of a Bible on their secret printing press. The Word of God spread regardless of government control—these historical events are depicted in this film.
When Christian principles become socially unacceptable and society moves to repress them, what will Christians do? How important are the Christian faith and family values they believe in? Witness the Soviet Union—before glasnost. Fear of the KGB pervades society, and Christian faith is stifled wherever it is discovered. Most believers cling to a hollow shell of Christianity tolerated in “registered” churches. However, some believers opt to remain “unregistered,” worshipping God openly and accepting the consequences. A brave few dare to print Bibles—right under the noses of the KGB. This story is about them. While The Printing is a fictional story, Unusual Films has based the characters and events on real people and documented events that occurred during the Communist Era in the U.S.S.R.
recorded on July 29, 2015 As part 2 begins Lenin is dead and Stalin is trying to consolidate power. Although various people were vying for the position, Stalin had already effectively taken over Lenin’s job. Lenin’s last will and testament says bad things about all his successors, with Trotsky coming out the best, yet does nothing to dislodge Stalin from power. Stalin continues, through hard work and cunning, to gather power but also because people believed that he stood for the principles of the revolution.
2015 Hoover Institute video with historian Stephen Kotkin discussing his book 'Stalin: Volume I: Paradoxes of Power, 1878–1928'
Part 1: Stalin was born in a small town in Georgia in which he was educated to become a priest. After succeeding in school and becoming a devout follower of the faith, Stalin left the priesthood and became a communist revolutionary. World War I and the revolutions of 1917 set the stage for Stalin and the Communists to take power in Russia.
“If you're interested in power, [if] you're interested in how power is accumulated and exercised, and what the consequences are, the subject of Stalin is just unbelievably deep, it's bottomless.” – Stephen Kotkin
In part two, Stephen Kotkin, author of Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 1929–1941, discusses the relationship between Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler leading up to and throughout World War II. Kotkin describes what motivated Stalin to make the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact with Hitler and the consequences of his decision.
Kotkin dives into the history of the USSR and its relationship with Germany during WWII, analyzing the two leaders' decisions, strategies, and thought processes. He explains Stalin's and Hitler’s motivations to enter into the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact even without the support of their respective regimes. Stalin’s goal was to defeat the West and he saw the pact as an opportunity to do so by driving a wedge between Germany and the capitalist West. Kotkin analyzes Stalin’s decisions leading up to the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union and the disinformation Germany was feeding soviet spies to prevent Stalin from moving against Hitler first.
“Joseph Stalin, Soviet dictator, creator of great power, and destroyer of tens of millions of lives …” Thus begins this episode of Uncommon Knowledge, which dives into the biography of Joseph Stalin. This episode’s guest, Stephen Kotkin, author of Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 1929-1941 (https://www.amazon.com/Stalin-Waiting-1929-1941-Stephen-Kotkin/dp/1594203806), examines the political career of Joseph Stalin in the years leading up to World War II, his domination over the Soviet Union, and the terror he inspired by the Great Purge from 1936–38.
“Why does Joseph Stalin matter?” is a key question for Kotkin, as he explains the history of the Soviet Union and Stalin's enduring impact on his country and the world. Kotkin argues that Stalin is the “gold standard for dictatorships” in regard to the amount of power he managed to obtain and wield throughout his lifetime. Stalin stands out because not only was he able to build a massive amount of military power, he managed to stay in power for three decades, much longer than any comparable dictator.
Kotkin and Robinson discuss collectivization and communism and how Stalin’s regime believed it had to eradicate capitalism within the USSR even in regions where capitalism was bringing economic success to the peasants, with the potential of destabilizing the regime. This led to the Great Purge, a campaign of political repression that resulted in the exile and execution of millions of people.

The operation was a continuation of the previous year's Operation Barbarossa, intended to knock the Soviet Union out of the war, and involved a two-pronged attack against the oil fields of Baku as well as an advance in the direction of Stalingrad along the Volga River, to cover the flanks of the advance towards Baku. For this part of the operation, Army Group South (Heeresgruppe Süd) of the German Army was divided into Army Groups A and B (Heeresgruppe A and B). Army Group A was tasked with crossing the Caucasus mountains to reach the Baku oil fields, while Army Group B protected its flanks along the Volga.
In October of 1942 the German Sixth Army, under General Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst Paulus, came as close as perhaps it ever did to defeating the Soviet defenders of Stalingrad - led most prominently by General Vasily Ivanovich Chuikov's 62nd Army. At best, by October 1942 the 62nd Army numbered 50,000 men and 80 tanks. According to those present it was nowhere near these numbers and the Germans held overwhelming advantages in men and machines.
In an assault beginning on October 14th, five German divisions - over 90,000 men, 2,000 guns and mortars, 300 tanks, and waves of Stuka's forged a path just over two miles wide to the main source of Russian resistance in the city; at the Tractor Plant and Barrikady factory. The assault began with a one and a half hour air and artillery bombardment that crushed everything within 100 meters of the frontlines. In spite of the sheer scale of the assault it actually resembled more of a technical tour de force then it did a crude battering ram. For instance, the Germans had prepared thoroughly, including carefully mapping Russian command posts by intercepting radio signals and then targeting each one for destruction. Thus, the Germans quickly decapitated the defenders, burying entire Russian command posts under a fury of bombs and shells. In spite of a brave and spirited resistance on the part of the Russians, actually driving off the first wave and shocking the attackers who otherwise had thought nothing could have survived the bombardment, the Germans regrouped and pushed through. German infantry and machine gun teams flowed around the Russian positions as panzers prowled the factory floors, climbing rubble and pouring point blank cannon and machine gun fire at Russian soldiers fighting with grim determination. The fighting dragged on with an unprecedented savagery as the great industrial works changed hands several times before the German attackers finally wrested control over the factories from Chuikov's men and advanced to the Volga. The Germans sought to chop up the Russian positions, with mini-encirclement battles occurring across the city. The Russian defense flowed more flexibly, emphasizing constant small-scale counterattacks in an effort to wear down the powerful German assault. The bloodshed quickly reached epic proportions; on the night of October 15th alone over 3,500 Russian wounded were evacuated across the river. The horror of the battle was unspeakable. One survivor, Anatoly Mereshko - a staff officer from the 62nd Army, afterward described these days as an utter hell with the sun virtually blotted from view by the fire and smoke while the noise of thousands of weapons discharging at once drowning out the sound of individual weapons.
By the night of the 14th the Germans had split the 62nd Army in two; even the elite 37th Guards Rifle Division had been annihilated - fighting to nearly the last man in a desperate stand within the Tractor Factory. The crucial hours in the battle had arrived as Chuikov's defenses cracked. By 9:40pm Chuikov, had nothing left with which to stop the Germans, and with his HQ only 800 meters from the Volga River, he contacted the Stalingrad Front and requested permission to withdraw his command post across the Volga. As it turned out such was the weakened state of attacker and defender alike that these reinforcements proved pivotal. By the 16th and with the support of the 138th Rifle Division, its lead regiment having crossed the Volga on the night of the 15th, the 62nd Army held.

In the 1980s when Viktor Suvorov published a journal article and later the book Icebreaker in which he stated that Stalin had seen the outbreak of war in western Europe as an opportunity to spread communist revolutions throughout the continent, and that the Soviet military was being deployed for an imminent attack at the time of the German invasion. This view had also been advanced by former German generals following the war. Suvorov's thesis was fully or partially accepted by some historians, including Valeri Danilov, Joachim Hoffmann, Mikhail Meltyukhov and Vladimir Nevezhin.
The fiercest battles of World War Two took place along the Eastern Front. The Front reached back to Germany through the Soviet Union, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, the Balkans, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and the Baltic States. Throughout these sombre landscapes, where Europe’s best gave their lives to free Europe from the scourge of the Bolshevik-London-Washington DC alliance.
Some Background Information:
With the world preoccupied by the war in Europe: Stalin violated the Soviet-Polish Non-Aggression Pact by invading Poland in 1939 Stalin violated the Soviet-Finnish Non-Aggression Pact by invading Finland in 1939 Stalin violated a provision of the Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact (Ribbentrop-Molotov) by invading Lithuania in 1940 Stalin grabbed a piece of eastern Romania in 1940
Hitler believed that Stalin, in secret collaboration with the British, was planning to totally break the Soviet-German Non Aggression Pact by launching a massive surprise attack upon anti-Communist Germany. The Allies were willing to let the Communists plunder Eastern Europe rather than Germany show the world how to break free from the International banker[s]. As history would have it, Hitler's fear of Stalin's collaboration with the British and to overrun Europe was irrefutable.
The attack on the Soviet Union was a counter attack as Hitler had no other choice, Stalin was about to strike western Europe. Even if Germany had an army 5 times larger than that of the USSR, Germany was, due to its much smaller size than the USSR, in a strategic disadvantage, as the Red Army could have reached Berlin in less than a week through a surprise attack. Germany is smaller in size, hence less ground to defend, less ground to use as strategic advantage i.e. no where to retreat unlike the soviets who could have retreated within the vast landscapes of the USSR and reorganize to counterattack. Germany didn't have strategic territory that the USSR had.Germany had a bigger industrial base than the USSR. Hitler knew that Germany must strike first and defeat the USSR by 1942. Therefore he did not order the German economy to be totally mobilized for war. It was a strategic mistake that cost, among other reasons, the war.
Germany was the world’s second largest industrial power (after the USSR). The Soviet Union had the third largest industrial base (about 70% of Germany’s size) while the British Empire had the fourth largest economy. Despite Germany being more powerful in terms of production capacity (about the same power as France and the Soviet Union combined) than the USSR during the first years of the war Germany’s war production was smaller than that of the USSR, since unlike the Soviets and the allies Germany’s war economy was not set to “total war” mode until 1943 i.e. too late. In 1944 Germany’s war production, despite allied bombings, was larger than that of the USSR and Britain and second only the the United States.
In the end … Poland, for whose liberty the West had supposedly gone to war, ended up with none at all. On the contrary, she was handed over to Stalin, along with the whole of Eastern Europe, including a part of Germany. Even so, there are some people in the West who continue to believe that the West won the Second World War. Stalin became the absolute ruler of a vast empire hostile to the West, which had been created with the help of the West. For all that, Stalin was able to preserve his reputation as naive and trusting, while Hitler went down in history as the ultimate aggressor. A multitude of books have been published in the West based on the idea that Stalin was not ready for war while Hitler was which is ignorant to say the least.
The great sacrifice of Germany and the 500,000 foreign SS Waffen volunteers from Europe and abroad prevented the Communists from taking ALL of Europe, including the Russians who fought to retake their Motherland from the Marxist butchers.

When Leonid Brezhnev became General Secretary in 1964, the Soviet Union began an era of stagnation. As economic growth slowed and military tensions with the United States were reduced during détente, the Soviet leadership pursued a policy of stabilization, demonstrating their resolve when the military dispatched Warsaw Pact tanks into Prague to stop reforms being pursued in Czechoslovakia. By the 1980s, the economic and political stagnation had worsened, however, and Mikhail Gorbachev began a series of reforms of his own in the Soviet Union under perestroika. As the 9-year war in Afghanistan began draining government coffers already run low by a substantial decline in oil prices, the USSR started to break apart as communist East Germany rejoined its capitalist brother to the west, and Warsaw Pact nations such as Poland and Lithuania began moves towards independence. On Christmas Day, 1991, Gorbachev officially announced the dissolution of the USSR, and Boris Yeltsin was declared President of Russia. What followed was a severe economic contraction, with unemployment rising and many ordinary citizens falling into homelessness and early mortality. Large portions of strategic state assets in the heavy mining, energy, and industrial sectors were parceled off to these same citizens, who often out of desperation sold their shares and ended up handing much of the Russian economy to a new class of billionaire oligarchs. This concentration of wealth continued until 2000, when Vladimir Putin became Russian president and began a series of moves reversing much of the economic chaos and restoring some semblance of order to Russian society.
