Gratitude – Victory Day

 

All in the world who love truth feel deep gratitude and express it to the Russian people on May 9 – Victory Day. This historical day is for all who love the truth.

It is the day we remember the sacrifice of 27 million Soviets who gave their lives to defeat the evil of Hitler’s Nazism. It marks the surrender in 1945 of Hitler’s forces to the Soviet Union.

The world owes great appreciation to the Red Army and the people, for it is they who gave the most in WWII.

“This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:12-13, KJV)

A joint effort, everyone who died and suffered from countries worldwide to end the fascist takeover of Europe, should be honored. And, yet, it is the people of Russia who keep the commemoration of the Nazi surrender to them with the utmost love and devotion, and in doing so they have led others worldwide to also remember the fallen.

The Great Patriotic War (WWII) will always be remembered – the millions, both military and civilian, who died as a result always honored – and the lessons learned will last forever.

Not a family has been left untouched by loss in Russia. The love of ancestors, of heroes, is demonstrated beautifully in the Immortal Regiment march, in which millions in Russia and in cities worldwide remember their loved ones who gave their lives to stop the Nazis. In it, we remember all who sacrificed, those who fought, and those who supported them – which was virtually every civilian in the Soviet Union. Marching together, photographs of their fallen heroes in their hands, they in procession join together in solemn remembrance. These photographs are not only of their heroes, they are our heroes, the heroes for all who love truth…for all who are grateful for the victory over evil.

It was these courageous, strong people who made the Nazi defeat possible. It is they who gave the most…and to whom all of us should feel great appreciation. Every one of them, whose image we see being held by a descendant, reminds us that every individual who died was someone’s loved one. This now global commemoration began in the Russian city of Tomsk in 2011 when friends and journalists gathered together, creating a public memorial in this way for Victory Day.

The Immortal Regiment is a striking visual of love and grief. In addition, on Victory Day, there will be various events of commemoration, including fireworks displays, parades, and more. Such Victory Day events have always taken place worldwide, as the heroes are from worldwide, and all worldwide benefit from the Soviet people’s sacrifice, which is the primary reason victory was achieved.

As it should be, Victory Day events such as the Immortal Regiment take place in 70 or more countries. This has included remembrance marches in Germany as well as across the United States, where it has occurred in 25 cities on May 9 previously. In Russia, and nations across the world, all who suffered and died in the fight against the Nazis are remembered. Many bring flowers to memorial monuments across the globe, showing their love, respect, and gratitude. And the magnificent Victory Day Parade in Red Square, a fortifying message of strength in defense of the people, then and now, is viewed worldwide.

I am uncertain how many of the collective West and its vassal countries will permit their citizens to honor the fallen. I suspect the love of the people will prevail, despite despicable crackdowns and evil misrepresentation of history the collective West/European nations (and some former Soviet Republics who have become vassals of the United States – choosing to receive hundreds of millions of dollars from the USA) are doing. The disgusting removal of memorials to the Soviets who died liberating their countries, the omission of gratitude to the Soviet Union’s great sacrifice of lives when WWII is mentioned, and other hostile acts are becoming commonplace in Western controlled nations. But one recent example: Moldova’s restriction on its citizens wearing St. George’s ribbon – long worn on May 9 to commemorate the victory against the Nazis (also happening in the Baltic States).

For years, Western leaders would attend the same parade – but now their hatred for Russia controls them – not the truth. Also, apparently, for the past two years, WWII American veterans who wished to attend the Victory Parade in Moscow were prevented from doing so by the American government. As Anatoly Antonov, the Ambassador of Russia to the United States, wrote in his May 8, 2023, statement, “The U.S. authorities essentially did not let the dream of the veterans from coming true, prevented another embrace of the veterans, now in the center of Moscow. This move is insulting not only to the veterans who fought against Nazism, but to all those who remember the sacred feat. We want American veterans to know that Russia is proud of their contribution to the common victory. Hostile U.S. policy will not undermine the spirit of World War II fighting camaraderie.”

What once was a beautiful reunion of Russians and Americans (and others) doesn’t happen as it once did due to the United States. But Russia acknowledges all fighters of WWII – Soviet, American, British, French, Resistance fighters, Chinese, etc.

Only the collective West and its vassals, are attempting to evilly rewrite history with innuendos and omission, removing WWII memorials, withholding honor to those who sacrificed the most – the Soviets. Such countries will have their Victory in Europe Day while in ultimate irony 1. They persecute the memory of the Soviets who died, making their current existence possible; and 2. They actively support the evil fascists of Ukraine.

The spiritual and cultural identity of Russia will always be defended — and defended well against all enemies. It is a history lesson the evil clowns of the collective West (most notably the USA and UK) have not yet learned. The collective West has minimal appreciation for spirituality or culture – they operate, as all of their short history shows us, from greed. How could anyone who loves freedom, justice, and appreciates the defeat of the Nazis, ever diminish the suffering and sacrifice the Russians gave for all of us?

Yet, this is exactly what the collective West has been doing. The Russophobic actions in denial of history are an affront to truth, a clear rejection of God.

The Russian Federation perfectly described: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.” (Psalm 27:1-3, KJV).

For Russia, the ethical and righteous defense of people’s lives, takes precedence. They have defended themselves before, and do so again.

The millions of Soviet soldiers and civilians who died for love of their Motherland, her people, their faith, values and traditions, for their beautiful and blessed country, will never be forgotten. The Western countries, most notably, the United States and the United Kingdom, will not prevail in their evil attempt to hide history – for the entire world knows the truth – regarding the past – and the present.

Only those who believe in the lie reject this poignant day’s historical significance and immense personal sacrifice. Only those whose fascist ambitions lead them to the spiritual insanity of provoking wars and proxy wars against peace-loving people ignore this day or twist their words to omit those who sacrificed the most. Their manipulations can only fool the willfully ignorant and stupid.

The faces we see of those who gave their lives– their spirits are with us – this day and all days. It is their sacred memory and spirit that embolden us to always stand up against such tyranny. As then and now, never will the Russians (or any of the other freedom loving sovereign countries in the world) allow fascist hegemony to prevail. Never again will fascist aggression be able to rear its ugly head and dare to assume it will destroy those who love freedom – it will not.

The great spirit of the Russian people is respected worldwide, it is appreciated, and it will inspire others worldwide to stand for righteousness against tyranny.

It is written, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17, KJV).

As the world commemorates the end of WWII, all of us who love truth, who love God – who is truth, should endeavor to share the history we know because dark forces are trying to misrepresent it to fit their evil anti-Russian agenda.

May 9, Victory Day, is the day all who love truth express gratitude to Russia.
