“The USSR is a criminal state, and the Russians are invaders”: Czechs on an article by Vladimir Putin

In an English-language article on the causes of World War II, published in the American journal The National Interest, Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses European leaders of a biased approach to history, which should make Russia apologize and feel guilty, writes the Czech edition of iDNES.cz.

The president again condemned the resolution of the European Parliament, adopted in September last year, according to which, World War II was the direct result of the non-aggression pact of 1939 between the USSR and Nazi Germany.

At the time of this writing, 1977 comments were left under the article. Some of them are presented below.

Finally, someone should tell Putin that Konev (the speech about the monument demolished on the eve of the Prague authorities - approx. Ed.) Was put up not by the "grateful citizens of Prague" in 1945, but by the communist daddy in 1980, that is, after 35 years after the war

- says user František Vrána.

And Putin mentioned why his daughters do not live in Russia or where Khrushchev’s son recently died? Doesn't that say anything about Russia?

- “recalled” Jarda Hofmann, apparently not knowing that the president’s daughters have long been living in Russia.

The greatness of the Russian people is comparable only with its inferiority complex.

- sarcastically remarks Marek Mozga.

Putin directly refers to the legacy of the Stalinist USSR, and this is what really bothers me in today's Russia. He advocates an alliance with Hitler and justifies the occupation of Poland as a strategic necessity. If we agree to this interpretation, then it turns out that the killing of Polish army officers by the NKVD should also be whitewashed? Or terror of the Polish population? Why did the Soviets do the same in the Baltic states, why did they steal a third of Finland, killing tens of thousands of Finns? Why? Because the USSR was expansionist, aggressive, Bolshevik. This criminal state was in the role of a liberator only by coincidence. If Hitler had not attacked Stalin, then most likely Stalin would have attacked Hitler in a few years, and he would have seized everything the same as in 1945. Stalin was an imperialist and a criminal, and nothing more. And this is what Putin loves so much

- writes Lukáš Závodský.

A country living solely with its past without contact with modern world reality is doomed only to sympathy ...

- notes Petr Bartůněk.

They will never understand that we are no longer their colony, and we will not continue to crawl towards them at the first whistle. Although for some collaborators and, unfortunately, even politiciansit's still a big dream

- resents Jiří Kopecký.

To erect a similar statue on the territory of an occupied country, and now wondering that it was destroyed, is disgusting. This only confirms that the Russians are a nation of invaders. Indeed, the presence of Stalin in a nationwide contest in the name of the greatest Russian says this quite eloquently

- claims Petr Tomek.

How splendidly Putin omits facts that he does not like. For example, about our agreement with the Soviet Union (speech on a bilateral agreement on mutual assistance of May 16, 1935 - approx. Ed.), About the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, about helping the Germans in training personnel and developing weapons, about congratulations of Stalin to Hitler after the conquest of France, the invasion of six European countries in 1939-41, etc.

- a certain Martin Sykora raves.

    Well, it is easy for Western laypersons (most of whom are typical owners of consumer "clip thinking"!) To "program their brains" in any "key" that is beneficial to the Washington puppeteers!
    There is a weak knowledge of recent history (including the one who actively prevented, promising to bomb and not let through his Polish territory, the Soviet troops come to the aid of Czechoslovakia, in 1938, according to Hitler’s Munich agreement with the authorities of France and England, captured and divided Germany, Poland and Hungary!) Even their own allied country, a real arsenal of weapons and military equipment, Nazi Germany in aggression attack on our Soviet Union (which Czech commentators, descendants of those Czech aggressors, accuse of alleged attack on pro-Hitler Czechoslovakia)!

    But did the Poles and Germans come to you in October 1938 with a courtesy visit? They grabbed all your strategic defense enterprises, and now you are not gu-gu? And why did you flog with your army into our country, destroying it and killing peaceful women, old people and children ... All of Europe, along with fascist Germany, fought against us, but we survived and came back to you with good, so you and fight off, so that we can repeat it again, but then everything will be different.

    Czechoslovakia is a criminal state that supported Hitler with arms and people. In 1918, the Czechoslovak Corps rebelled in Siberia, killed a mass of civilians and stole almost all of Russia's gold reserves. It was gold that built the industry that worked for Hitler. Czechs and Slovaks served en masse in the fascist army. At the funeral of Gauleiter Heydrich, who was killed by English agents, 200 thousand people came out. These facts are quite enough to recognize them as accomplices and allies of the Nazis.
    At present, Czechs and Slovaks are doing everything to make Russia consider them enemies. They seemed to be off the charts. So much the worse for them ...

      hi Those "English agents" - a group of Czech patriots trained in Great Britain and dropped by parachutes to destroy the local Hitlerite Gauleiter-Heydrich (among other "merits" - one of the organizers of the European genocide of the Jewish population - the so-called "Judenfrei" policy), themselves The "Czech workers" quickly betrayed (as well as their predecessors - also Czech patriots, trained and dropped by the British earlier, for the same purpose!) to be punished by the Gestapo!

      At the time of this writing, 1977 comments were left under the article.

      In general, the author chose from 1977 only pearls "necessary" for such an article and published them. But it was possible to publish comments with a different bias.
      Is there really no other or just different opinion in Europe, or are they only for retired politicians.
      But, apparently, what was convincingly recommended, then passed along the chain. By such methods, all talk of the friendship of peoples can be easily stopped and the proletarians will no longer be united, and the goal seems to be precisely that set. Divide and rule. laughing hi

          Only! Send a request to any Amer’s archive with a request to look at documents of interest to you with such and such a date - the answer will come when you can go in and see, there are no problems.
          Moreover - there is a law that after an incident of a certain number of years, documents must be open. These are not local laws, but state ones. And open after 20-30-50 years, depending. Because when making the stamp "secret" for any material, a decision is made when the secrecy is removed. And this period is known to the public, and she looks forward to it. Very often, the military continues to keep them closed, and then the public goes to court and the court decides that yes, it must be opened. And the court decides on the basis of an article in the Constitution (200 years ago!), And this article guarantees citizens access to information, because otherwise, the rulers behind their citizens will be able to twist their affairs.
          I don’t know what amendments to the constitution were adopted by you, but if there is no access to info, then you can hang noodles on the ears of the people in tons, and for years ...
          By the way - how many times did the phrase "the US military / or - the government declassified such and such ..."? This is exactly the case when the constitution law worked, so they declassified ...
