ANZAC DAY MARCH IN SYDNEY
COMMEMORATES THE CONTRIBUTION OF WAR VETERANS TO THE VICTORY OF FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY OVER DICTATORSHIP.

 

After the Second World War, Australian government had extended invitation to settle in Australia to thousands of Polish ex-servicemen who served under British Command and could not go home to Soviet occupied Poland.

 

The Polish veterans in Sydney, where I live, have been very welcome to take part in Anzac Day March on 25th of April each year, alongside their Australian comrades-in-arms from Battle of Britain, Middle East, Mediterranean, Tobruk and North Africa. And I march with them.


BLATANT MISREPRESENTATION OF HISTORY

Red Army WW2 veterans are now marching in Sydney

50 years after the Second World War and subsequent Cold War, implemented by the USSR to bring a world-wide communist domination, which failed with the collapse of the Soviet Union, immigrants to Australia, the veterans of the Red Army in the Second World War, suddenly decided to take part in Anzac march too!

Red Army WW2 veterans march, proudly wearing medals with hammer-and-sickle emblems, red stars and some even with profiles of Stalin and Lenin



These emblems are the most hated and evil symbols in the history of the world under which millions of people were imprisoned and murdered.

 

To me they are no different to Nazi swastikas and profiles of Hitler.

In the march, the Red Army veterans carry a banner "RUSSIA" and current Russian colours: white, blue and red.

This is a LIE ! It is misleading and false !
This is NOT
what they carried during the war !

In the war, and for 50 years afterwards, they carried "USSR" banners and communist red flags with hammer and sickle on it.
  • IT APPEARS THAT RSL (RETURNED SERVICEMEN LEAGUE), THE ORGANIZERS OF ANZAC MARCH IN SYDNEY, SHOW MISUNDERSTANDING OF HISTORY. RUSSIAN PARTICIPATION IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR HAD NOTHING IN COMMON WITH FIGHT FOR LIBERTY AND DEMOCRACY THAT WE COMMEMORATE IN ANZAC DAY MARCH.

HISTORICAL TRUTH ABOUT
WORLD WAR TWO : 1939 - 1945

1939 - 1941 : SOVIET- NAZI  FRIENDSHIP
  • In 1939, the Soviet Union rejected an offer from the Allies (Great Britain, France and Poland) to form an alliance against Hitler's continuing aggression in Europe. Instead, the Soviet Union signed a Friendship Treaty with Germany which included a secret Soviet-Nazi collusion to divide Poland and Eastern Europe between Germany and the Soviet Union. This Russian back-up gave Hitler free hand to start the Second World War.
  • Accordingly, in September 1939, in support of Hitler's invasion of Poland from the west, triggering the war with England, France, Australia and India, the Red Army attacked Poland from the east. Two months later, the Russians also invaded Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Bessarabia (Moldavia).
  • 25,700 Polish officers retreating eastwards with their troops from the German attack, were taken prisoner by the Russians, and six months later they were all individually executed in Russian prisons and buried in KATYN forests.

A Red Army commander of the Soviet tank is being welcomed by Nazi officers in the Polish town Brest on the river Bug, where both armies met. It became a border town on the new Soviet-German border that divided occupied Poland.

These Russian officers may now be marching in the Anzac Day March.

Semyon Moiseyevich Krivoshein, the Commander of the Soviet NKVD Brigade, stands together with German General Heinz Guderian in the Polish town Brzesc (Brest) on a makeshift podium during the joint Nazi and Red Army parade on 22 September 1939, to celebrate the invasion of Poland.


  • For the first two years of the war the Russians supported the Nazis against the Allies : militarily, politically and economically. While Australian, British and Polish soldiers, airmen and sailors were loosing their lives in the West, the Russians supplied Hitler with food, oil, petrol, timber, and war materials, as well as disseminated anti-western propaganda.
  • This lasted until June 1941, when ever-victorious Hitler decided not to share Europe with Stalin, betrayed his partner in crime, and invaded the Soviet Union itself, advancing with lightning speed right up to Moscow and Stalingrad.

  • 1941 : THE SOVIETS BECOME AN ACCIDENTAL, UNRELIABLE AND UNCOOPERATIVE  ALLY
  • After German attack, the Russians unexpectedly found themselves on the same side as the Allies. But they did not join us to help our cause. Their sole aim remained the survival of the communist dictatorship and ideology, not the victory of freedom and democracy in Europe and Russia.
  • Those intentions became clear already early in 1944 when the Russians, advancing on the eastern war front, approached their pre-war border in Europe.
  • When the Red Army crossed into occupied Poland in 1944, the Polish Underground Army cooperated with the Russians in the fight against Germans and contributed greatly to the victories at Vilnius, Lvov and Lublin only to find themselves surrounded and disarmed by their Soviet "comrades in arms" and arrested. All were accused of supporting the democratic Polish government in-exile in London, labeled by Soviets as enemy "bourgeois and capitalist" government, and were deported to labour camps in Siberia. Their commanders were shot.
1944 : WARSAW UPRISING.
SOVIET INTENTIONS ARE NOW VERY CLEAR
  • On 1st August 1944, with the Russian forces now at the outskirts of Warsaw on the east bank of the Vistula river, the Polish Homeland Army, responsible to Polish Government in-exile in London, and all civilians took arms against the Germans. It was the WARSAW UPRISING. Heroic street-fighting involving the whole population, using the sewers as lines of communication and escape, under heavy bombardment, lasted for over two months.
  • The Russians halted, letting the fighting continue between the ill-equipped Polish Homeland Army and the German garrison. They awaited until Warsaw was destroyed and Polish underground army defeated. The Soviets lifted their air cover over the city, permitting German bombardment, disarmed Polish Home Army units, and also refused to allow Allied planes which were dropping supplies in Warsaw to land and refuel on Polish airfields already under Russian control.

    There were Australians among the Allied plane crews. Twenty operations were carried out by Australians using Halifaxes and Liberators. Due to Soviet plane landing refusal the airmen had to risk death, flying back 11 hours non-stop over German territory on limited fuel.

  • W/O Murray Alexander Baxter, an Australian airman, died in Warsaw together with the whole crew on 15th August 1944 while conducting a supply drop in support of the Polish Uprising. An Australian navigator F/lt. Alan Mcintosh had flown three Warsaw missions. According to his report, many Soviet night fighters and heavy anti-aircraft fire, assisted by searchlights, engaged the Allied aircraft over the Russian side of the Vistula River where the Red Army stood poised, watching with gratification the Germans eliminate a problem for them — a problem of possible Polish Independence.
  • The fighting continued for 66 days. 250,000 people died. The city was completely destroyed. The Russians did not give any help. The surrender took place on 2nd October 1944. After surrendering, the Homeland army soldiers and many civilians were sent by Germans to concentration camps, some were executed, and Warsaw was razed to the ground.
  • The defeat of Warsaw Uprising destroyed the military and political democratic institutions of the Polish underground and left the way open for a Soviet takeover as they were planning. Poland was already part of Russia's post war communist expansionist plans in Europe.
  • The Russians awaited another 3 months before moving in on 17 January 1945 to occupy the ruins, calling that day "the liberation of Warsaw".


For this cold-blooded Soviet treachery of Warsaw Uprising calculated to ensure Poland's inclusion into the Soviet dictatorial Empire, one thousand six hundred and sixty Red Army servicemen including the NKVD troops (secret police troops, later known as KGB), were all awarded "Medals for the LIBERATION OF WARSAW -- 17 January 1945" and titles "HERO OF THE SOVIET UNION" (photo of medal alongside).


1945 : RUSSIA EMERGES AS A RUTHLESS OCCUPIER, NOT AN ALLY IN LIBERATION AND DEMOCRACY

By the end of the war, the Red Army consolidated their communist domination in Europe and continued their aggression against the freedom and democracy of the West :
  1. by creating a communist East Germany , falsely named German Democratic Republic ("democratic" Soviet style)
  2. by blockading and starving Berlin to get the Allies out, with an objective to communize the whole of Germany (did you see documentary on TV about "Berlin Airlift"?)
  3. by erecting the Berlin Wall and shooting the escapees to the West
  4. by descending "the iron curtain" on Central and Eastern Europe
  5. by enslaving Eastern European countries for 50 years
  6. by continuously provoking and actively pursuing the Cold War
*   *   *

The Question :

  • DOES  THE WAR HISTORY OF THE NAZI HOLOCAUST NOW CHANGE  BECAUSE  GERMANY  BECAME  DEMOCRATIC?
  • WHY THEN THE RECENT PARTIAL DEMOCRATIZATION OF COMMUNIST  RUSSIA SHOULD CHANGE THEIR CRIMINAL  WAR HISTORY?

The Facts:

  • Russians called that war a "Great Patriotic War for the Fatherland" (not the Second World War) and meant a war for the survival of Soviet fatherland devoted to international communist domination.
  • This has been confirmed by atrocities and arrests of millions of people in countries "liberated" by Russians during the war, and e.g. by Russian military bloody intervention in Hungary in 1956 or in Czechoslovakia in 1968.

    ALL THESE COUNTRIES WERE OCCUPIED FOR 50 YEARS UNTIL THE SOVIET UNION COLLAPSED.

Order of Honour awarded after 1945 to many dignitaries in "liberated" i.e. occupied countries.

The inscription says "USSR. Workers of the world, unite! "

The Conclusion :

  • THE RUSSIANS WERE NOT THE LIBERATORS during the war.
    THEY REPLACED THE FASCIST DICTATORSHIP WITH THEIR OWN, MUCH WORSE, COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP.
  • THE RED ARMY VETERANS NOW MARCHING IN SYDNEY AND POSING AS RUSSIAN DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY , WHILE THEY BROUGHT OPPRESSION AND SUBJUGATION IN EUROPE, IS A HYPOCRITICAL AND SHEER FALSIFICATION OF HISTORY.

The Anzac Day march has lost its meaning for me. I don't feel proud and comfortable during the march any more. The presence of Red Army in the march always reminds me of the outbreak of war in 1939, when the Russians, in collaboration with the Nazis, stabbed Poland in the back, massacred in Katyn 25,700 Polish officers who fought the Germans, deported millions of people to slavery and death in Siberia, and imposed communist tyranny on Central and Eastern Europe till 1993.
