The United States is unhappy with the joint statement of Trump and Putin on the Second World War


A joint statement by Russian leader Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Allied meeting on the Elbe provoked a mixed reaction in the United States. The American newspaper Wall Street Journal even reports of disputes in the ruling circles of the United States.


The joint statement said that “The Spirit of Elba” is an example of how both countries can, putting aside contradictions, build trust and cooperation in the name of a common goal. However, the initiative of the leaders of the two countries caused concern among some parliamentarians and employees of the US Congress. At the same time, part of the White House administration is worried that this could nullify Washington’s “tough signal” to Moscow.

I am sure that this was a Russian initiative. Putin wants the United States to confirm that modern Russia, like the Soviet Union, is a great power

- the newspaper quotes the words of the director of the Center for the Study of Eurasia, Russia and Eastern Europe at Georgetown University and the author of the book "Putin's World" by Angela Stent.

In turn, the "especially gifted" American journalist David Frum, the speechwriter of former US President George W. Bush, asked himself an interesting question in his Twitter account. Why is Trump celebrating the anniversary of the meeting of the Allies on the Elbe with Putin, and not with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky?

Soviet troops who met with US forces on the Elbe on April 25, 1945, were part of the Soviet First Ukrainian Front

- emphasized Frum.

In this regard, we would like to remind Frum that the 1st Ukrainian Front, as the operational-strategic association of the Red Army of the USSR Armed Forces, was formed in October 1943 on the basis of an order from the Headquarters of the Supreme High Command by renaming the Voronezh Front. Then Voronezh was already liberated and it was time to free Ukraine from the Nazis.

    Given that Europe and the United States are intensively rewriting the history of the Second World War, the mention of the Elbe in this statement is a plus to Putin. Only then it is necessary not to be embarrassed by this statement to shamelessly poke in the face, who do not recognize the USSR as the liberators of Europe from fascism.

      Europe and the United States are intensively rewriting the history of WWII ...

      Believe me, this is being done from all sides with the same zeal, it’s just that in recent years Europeans and Americans have simply begun to press a pencil harder, and their Russian partners have long been using rubber bands and scalpels, and what’s just not “retouching” there.

    Well, American Goebbelsuhs, “on the wave” of intensely inflated anti-Soviet, Russo- and Russian-Russian phobia, already in this way tried to “brainwave” the inhabitants of the “world community”! request
    They fooled the thoughtless "universal people" by saying that this is supposedly not the successor of the USSR-Russia, but the post-Maidan Bandera-Nazi "Ukraine" and the maydanopresik Potroshenko supposedly should be honored for the release of the prisoners of the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz, since the front of the "Red Army" that liberated this part of Poland was called up to !

    And now the American propagandists strive to do the same thing with the same crafty “leaks” with the meeting of the troops of the allies of the anti-Hitler coalition on the Elbe, sending their audience and Trump already to the infamous w / Bandera’s Zelts and other banderlogs, heroes of Hitler’s accomplices, along with Nazi pan-Europeans who shot our fathers and grandfathers, Soviet soldiers-liberators ??!

    and not with the president of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky?

    President Zelensky - no, I haven’t heard, this country is such - Ukraine, yes? And this country is in Africa, as I understand it!

    Why Trump celebrates the anniversary of the meeting of the Allies on the Elbe with Putin

    So because Trump apparently knows who really contributed the lion's share in the Victory over fascism !!!
    But the Americans entered the war only in 1944 in the summer, and that the USSR did not capture everything without them.

      With a short correction, at the European theater of operationsthen true. By the way, the Soviet Union did not capture anyone, the war in Europe was liberating, not from the Germans, but from Fascists of all stripes. hi

    Challenging American stupidities is like arguing with the foolish. They are not affected by argumentation from the standpoint of logic, knowledge and common sense. They are the opposite of all this. It’s easier to build a house out of water than to find the initial meanings on which mutual understanding will arise. They are dumber than Ukrainians - those Americans are deceived and robbed.

      I don’t think that the Americans are such “woodpeckers,” they may allow the Ukrainians to steal a penny, but then they will take it from them for nothing or all.
