"What a pathetic revenge": Czechs regret that Russia erases the memory of Vlasov


In the city of Dmitrov, near the Russian capital, the name of General Andrei Vlasov was removed from the memorial to the heroes of the battle of Moscow, the Czech news iDNES portal.


What a pathetic revenge, what a stupid attempt to rewrite history. The Russian Defense Ministry considers Vlasov a traitor and decided to erase the memory of him. Vlasov distinguished himself in the winter of 1941 as commander of the 20th Army of the Red Army, which repelled the German attack and forced the Germans to retreat

- stated in the material.

He was later captured and sided with the Nazis as the leader of the Russian Liberation Army, whose members are known as the Vlasovites. Local officials said they removed the reference to Vlasov at the request of the Russian military.

After World War II, the court recognized Vlasov as a traitor to the Motherland for going over to the side of Nazi Germany and sentenced him to death. On August 1, 1946, he was hanged in Moscow.

Vlasov's military merits are still controversial in the Czech Republic. In April 2020, in one of the districts of Prague, a memorial to the fallen Vlasovites was even opened. They helped the Prague uprising in May 1945 to fight the Nazis before the arrival of the Red Army. At the same time, the Russian embassy called the memorial a concession to those who are trying to revise the results of World War II, the Czech media sums up.

    In the city of Dmitrov, near the Russian capital, the name of General Andrei Vlasov was removed from the memorial to the heroes of the battle of Moscow, the Czech news portal iDNES reports with regret.
    What a pathetic revenge, what a stupid attempt to rewrite history.

    I read the original, I had the impression that this is not the opinion of the editorial board, moreover, not even the opinion of the Czechs, Rustem Agdamov is a rather rare name for the Czech Republic smile

    “What a pathetic revenge, what a stupid attempt to rewrite history,” wrote blogger Rustem Adagamov, who was the first to point out the disappearance of Vlasov's name from the monument.

    It is curious that around the same time another article was published on this portal

    Air Force war hero's dog name disappeared from tombstone

    Around the same time, a dog served in the British Air Force, and after its death it was awarded a mention on the monument. And everything is good, but the times are changing, in the XXI century proved that the dog was not lucky with the nickname - Nigger (Nigger) and British barbarians wiped it with a monument.
    What amazing historical parallels laughing Moreover, the fate of the heroic dog turned out to be indifferent to Rustem Agdamov, and Gretta's silence on this issue is depressing. No one will intercede for the four-legged hero? Is it color discrimination?

      The only amendment - most likely, it is still R. Adagamov, but otherwise I agree with you - Grette should be absent from it :)

        You are absolutely right. yes This is definitely him. By the way, I looked at what kind of blogger - the author of "the biography of Lyuba Sobol" and "Chronicle of the Khabarovsk protests", and so on.
        That's how it is, the "public opinion" of the Czechs. winked

    It turns out that we recognize the merits of the 20th army, but this army did not have a commander! So, gentlemen, "propagandists from history"? Or we are engaged in the HISTORY of war, or profanation - you will decide ...

      Your conclusion is rather strange, do not manipulate. The army had a commander, but he is not worthy of mention.

      The dog did not break the oath, remained faithful to the "oath" until his death, it was not his fault that the ideology was approximately the same on both sides of the English Channel, including that of its owner.

      So, gentlemen, "propagandists from history"? Or we are engaged in the HISTORY of the war, or profanation - you will decide ..
