How Russia ‘fought against fascism’ – from 1920 until 1941

Soviet and Nazi officers

For more than twenty years, Moscow’s closest ties in Europe were with Germany – starting in 1920 when Berlin supplied intelligence about the Polish Army to the Soviets. (And twenty years later, Stalin returned the favor when he had his radio stations in Minsk broadcast signals to the Luftwaffe to guide them to their Polish targets.) Everyone now knows about the secret 1939 Nazi-USSR Molotov-Ribbentrop Treaty, but even as late as October, 1940, Stalin was still  negotiating terms to join the Tripartite Pact with Italy, Japan, and Germany.

Karl Radek, fervent Stalinist and one of the authors of the new Soviet Constitution, wrote

“… only fools could imagine we should ever break with Germany… No one can give us what Germany can.”

“The Wolf who cried Fascist!” – Pathology of Russian Propaganda against Ukraine, pt. 1

The F-word is almost entirely meaningless today. “Fascism” has mostly become a perjorative word, used as an insult – and a scare tactic by Russia meant to paralyze opponents. In 1944, George Orwell wrote

“almost any English person would accept ‘bully’ as a synonym for ‘fascist'”.

It is now probably the most misused and overused term of our time.

“Anti-fascists” = fascists

But even more, it is becoming clear how “the fascists of the future will be called anti-fascists” ( a quote attributed to Winston Churchill). A quick look at the ‘antifascist’ crusaders in Moscow will suffice: police state in Russia, murdered opposition journalists, information monopoly on its own citizens, brutall suppression of its own minorities, military invasions of neighboring countries in “its sphere of influence” etc….

Offizielle Erklärung von der Krim:

Die Wahlbeteiligung auf der Krim hat 81,36 % betragen, sagte der Vorsitzende der Wahlkommission von der Werchowna Rada der Krim, Mychajlo Malyschew.

„Vor 20:00 Uhr haben 1.250.426 Personen ihre Stimme abgegeben.

Da sind die Wahlergebnisse aus Sewastopol nicht miteingerechnet.

Mit Sewastopol sind es 1.724.563 Personen.“ – sagte er.

Rechnen wir mal nach: 1.724.563-1.250.426 = 474.137 Personen haben in Sewastopol abgestimmt.

Schauen wir uns die statistische Webseite der Stadt Sewastopol an:

http://sevstat.sevinfo.com.ua/statist_info/demografia/chislo_naselenia/arxiv_2013/ludi_1013.pdf

Ende des letzten Jahres hat die Bevölkerung von Sewastopol 385.462 Einwohner gezählt. Darunter Kinder, die nicht wahlberechtigt sind.

474.137 – 385.462 = 88 675 Personen Bevölkerungszuwachs in Sewastopol während des Referendums.

474.137 / 385.462 * 100 = 123 % der Einwohner Sewastopols haben für die Angliederung der Krim an Russland gestimmt.

Das bedeutet, dass alle an der Wahl teilgenommen haben müssen – Babys, Schüler, und wahrscheinlich auch Tote.
