Facing The War: Time-Piercing Testimonies

70 years after WWII, there were few people in Donetsk who still remembered living through war, seeing atrocities committed in the name of fascism or how hard it was to restore peace. Those same veterans, now in their twilight years, watch in dismay as younger generations fail to resolve their differences peacefully and resort to military action. Once again, young people fight, die, and lay buried beside those who gave their lives for peace in WWII.

I am under no illusion that the end of World War II brought happiness and freedom to all of mankind, even less so in eastern Europe. In reality, it brought an untold number of horrors and suffering to many nations, especially the Germans. I don’t see Victory Day as a celebration of Communism or of the Soviet regime but as a victory over one of the most abhorrent regime in history. It was the victory of all the people who fought against the Nazis and not of one specific political ideology or order. But by the same token, I don’t think that it makes sense to deny that Stalin and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union played a key role in this victory. The notion that the Russian people prevailed “in spite of Stalin” really makes no sense as he, and his commanders, played a key role in every single major battle of this war, just has Hitler and his commanders did on the other side. As I said, this victory belongs to all those who helped defeating the Nazis and that very much includes Stalin, his commanders and the CPSU. Hence the Red banners do belong to this parade.

Finally, this day is also a day of celebration for all those who today are still resisting the true “heir” of the Nazi regime – the AngloZionist Empire with its global hegemonic ambitions and never ending colonial wars. Thus today is a day of celebration for all of us in the Saker community, our brothers (and sisters!) in arms and all our friends and allies in this global resistance to global Empire.

I congratulate you and and wish you a joy-filled and peaceful Victory Day!

The Saker

The situation in Donbass for the past day.
2. The Ministry of Emergency Situations and Housing utilities will check shelters in Donetsk and Gorlovka in the next two weeks.
3. Poroshenko thanked the heads of states who have decided not to go to Russia for the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the Victory.
4. Even the dead were drafted in Vinnitsa region.
5. 25 fighters of the Kharkov “Berkut” special division asked the Crimean authorities to give them shelter.
6. Ukrainian project “The Wall” is now a “Dignity Line.”
7. MEPs demanded results of the investigation of massacres in Odessa from Yatsenyuk.
8. The deputy from Yatsenyuk’s Party banned Russian company “Grozny Avia” to fly to Crimea.

Kharkov companies completed the construction of fortifications around the People’s Republic of Lugansk.

“Kharkov region is building according to the plan and will finish it in time… One fortification is completed. By May 15, work on four more points is plan to be finished,”
- the press service said.

According to Raynin, construction of platoon-strong points involves 13 contractors in the Lugansk region, 6 Kharkov plants produce the necessary constructions.

In March, at a meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Gennady Zubko in Kramatorsk (Donetsk region), with the participation of heads of “front-line” areas, it was decided to create about 300 control points along the front line. Construction of 31 points was charged to Kharkov region.

Kiev, meanwhile, is preparing for celebration in its own way. They will not take place on May 9 there but May 8, today, defiantly. The term “Great Patriotic War” is now banned, the streets are decorated with flags of the European Union.

Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups are planning to use the symbols of the DPR Republican Guard and Cossack units during the provocations on the territory of the People’s Republic of Donetsk

“According to DPR MD intelligence data received, the leadership of Ukraine is preparing provocations on the territory of the People’s Republic of Donetsk, – the Defense Ministry stated. – To this end, Ukrainian SRGs will use symbols of the Republican Guard and the Cossacks. “

“Diversions “under the guise” of the Republican Guard will become a resonant event in which the Ukrainian media would accuse the DPR leadership, and provocations of the “Cossacks” would be presented as a rebellion of Cossack units against the legitimate authority, that, as planned by the Ukrainian authorities, has to cause domestic unrest and the collapse in the administration of the republic”,
- the Ministry of Defense explained.

They added that the Ukrainian authorities deliberately organized the “stove piping” in the media under their control that “terrorists are planning to shoot a peaceful rally in Donetsk under the guise of Ukrainian troops” on May 9.
“This confirms the intention of the Ukrainian authorities to refer planned provocations to the Victory Day”,
- the Ministry of Defense stressed.

Ukraine as a new nation has to create a useable past, Arch Getty, Professor of Russian and Soviet history at UCLA told RT’s In the Now show. War criminals like Bandera, who killed a lot of civilians, are being praised by Kiev government now, he added.

RT: Mikhail Gorbachev said that snubbing the Victory parade is disrespect for the people who suffered enormous losses fighting Nazism. It’s clearly not completely perceived this way in th, e United States. Why is that?

Arch Getty: … For Americans it was something that they read about in the newspapers or something they heard about on the radio. For the Soviet people it was in their neighborhood, it was in their face- their houses were burnt, their houses were bombed, their neighbors were slaughtered, their family was killed. It had immediacy in their lives. But I don’t think Americans can really understand very well, because for us, in the US, it was something that happened somewhere else, but not for the Soviet people.

RT: If Obama came to Moscow, would this be perceived as weakness amid the current global geopolitical climate in the world?

AG: I don’t think it would be by anybody who fought in the war, or anyone who remembered the war, because it was a joint allied effort. I don’t think it would be perceived as a weakness by anybody who knew anything about the war. In fact, you could even see it the opposite. Having had his sanctions fail to resort to this kind of blockade it seems patty; it seems juvenile, especially given the depth of the loss that the Soviet people felt. You can almost argue that he looks even weaker by not going.
