President Vladimir Putin in Sevastopol, Crimea, attends a parade marking

Victory Day over the Nazis. Earlier in Moscow, Putin hosted the most

jubilant Victory Day parade in decades - certainly the most well-staged.

 

 

Preparing 'Stalin's Eleventh Blow': Victory Day and the New War on Fascism (Izvestia, Russia)

 

"Our hated enemies killed the Soviet country. They took her territory, her army. Destroyed her great factories. Broke the will of our victorious nation. They encroached on her victory, which for us was like a sacred shrine. ... As a gift for our patience and stoicism, for our labor and our faith, the Lord has sent us Crimea. Russian people once divided by our enemies, united again by victory's embrace. ... Even as we celebrate the sacred victory of '45, we hear the treads of enemy tanks in southeast Ukraine, where the bodies of militia are mutilated, and the heads of Russians crushed. A new battle against fascism is inevitable."

Writer Alexander Prokhanov - on our new Victory Day

 

Victory - fiery, holy, divine.

 

For four years, through fields covered with blood, flames and corpses, the remnants of Soviet battalions and regiments battled on. Finally, the fearless divisions of an enraged army arrayed themselves in an unshakable front. T-34 tanks, themselves often aflame, continued to fire at the "Panthers" and "Tigers" [German tanks]. Pilots spitting fire swooped down on the German columns and trains. Wehrmacht gunners were torn to pieces. Guerrilla fighters, dying under torture, spat in the faces of their executioners.

 

Ten blows from Stalin hammered the tousled body of fascism, and ten red victories shielded the motherland. In the basement of the Reich Chancellery, guards found a black egg, shells casings and broken needles. The death of Hitler hung in the air. By the red sword, fascism was dead. Like a twelve-headed snake, it died only when all of its heads were cut off. In '45, it was a victory of light over darkness, love over hate, heaven over hell.

 

[Editor's Note: Stalin's ten blows were ten successful strategic offensives conducted by the Red Army in 1944. The offensives drove Axis forces back from positions held near Leningrad, Belarus, and Ukraine to Poland and Central Europe.]

 

The soil had yet to settle on the graves of 30 million fallen heroes, the embers of burned villages and towns still smoldered, when Stalin ordered gardens to be planted, and these paradisaical gardens blossomed from sea to sea. Among these blooming gardens our ruined cities were restored. Divine Minsk, ravishing Kiev, and radiant Sevastopol we rebuilt. From these heavenly fields we launched into the space, and it seemed to us that their blossoming would be endless.

 

But silently, worms were eating them away. Artful rodents riddled our apples and pears. Our hated enemies killed the Soviet country. They took her territory, her army. Destroyed her great factories. Broke the will of our victorious nation. They encroached on her victory, which for us was like a sacred shrine.

But the worms couldn't riddle that shrine. The rodent's teeth broke on the sacred image. We carried our victory through the nightmarish nineties. And on this icon once again the scarlet blossom began to open, a marvelous scarlet bud.

 

We inhaled its aroma, drank in its miraculous juices. We rose again out of infirmity and sorrow, rebuilding our state. We erected factories. Secured our military. Restored the will to our fallen spirits. Reinspired non-believers in the faith. The victory remained with us, and we never laid down the red banner.

 

And as a gift for our patience and stoicism, for our labor and our faith, the Lord has sent us Crimea. Russian people once divided by our enemies, united again by victory's embrace.

But the black sperm of fascism spilled onto the mother of Russian cities - Kiev. In the golden apse of St. Sophia's [cathedral in Kiev], amid shrines and temples, grew an embryo, with black horns and an ugly hairy face, as Satan is depicted on the church's fresco. Like a poisonous dough rising in Kiev's kneading-trough, it began to spread to the whole of Ukraine, and its tanks leveled the streets of Kramatorsk.

 

 

Its armored personnel carriers poured fire over Slovyansk. Its helicopters swooped over the area around Donetsk. Its priests staged ritual punishments in Odessa: 40 Russian martyrs were burned alive amid the hooting and laughter of their executioners. It was fascist prayer to hell, a commemoration of Himmler and praise for Adolf Hitler. After the Odessa crematorium, Obama and Merkel smell of fried human flesh. That vicious cripple Yulia Tymoshenko is braiding herself with the hair of Auschwitz prisoners.

 

Even as we celebrate the sacred victory of '45, we hear the treads of enemy tanks in southeast Ukraine, where the bodies of militia are mutilated, and the heads of Russians crushed. A new battle against fascism is inevitable.

 

Stalin's eleventh blow is inevitable

 

Let President Putin hold a military parade and issue the order directly from Red Square to his passing troops and war machines, passed the temple of St. Basilís Cathedral and onto Donetsk, where wounded militiamen with trembling hands once again throw Molotov cocktails at fascist Bandera tanks [below].

Stephan Bandera was a Ukrainian politician who took the opportunity

of Germany's 1941 invasion of the USSR to push Ukrainians to declare

independence. Ukrainian nationalist fighters used Russian T-38 tanks

abandoned on the battlefield to fight Russians alongside the Nazis.

The T-38 tank above carries the slogan 'Glory to Stephan Bandera!'

This is one of the 'Bandera Tanks' that the author refers to.
