Russian soldier saved the world – WWII memorial song by Artjom Grishanov

Now that Victory Day – the 9th of May – is drawing close, we constantly see the ever-increasing attempts to re-write the history of WWII and to erase the Russian-Soviet victory which cost us 21 million people’s lives.

So does grow the importance of remembrance and of not allowing to have this memory to become sullied. Song has always been one of the strongest conduits of people’s emotions and memory, and the song below is a very emotional tribute and reminder.

Artjom Grishanov has the talent for condensing the essence of a topic into a few well-selected strong words, backed by equally concise and poignant imagery. Russian soldier saved the world shows in no uncertain terms what the West wants to have remaining of the memory, and what we really should be remembering. Please, take a moment to listen to it (with English subtitles) and to remember.

The motto of the 9th of May: I Remember. I Am Proud. In the colours of the St. George Ribbon.

  1. Пражская наступательная операция (из Исторических ЦАМО)
    06.05.1945 – 11.05.1945 г.

    Результат операции
    Войска 1-го Украинского фронта освободили столицу Чехословакии – город Прагу и во взаимодействии с войсками 4-го и 2-го Украинских фронтов освободили от немецко-фашистских захватчиков территорию всей страны; разгромили и пленили группу армий “Центр”

    О чем еще тут можно говорить? О каких русских вторгшихся? (это к тому, что на видео представители украины говорят)

  2. “Представители Украины” – наследники побеждённых в той войне, вот они и несут всякую ересь. А песня в видео ставит всё на свои места!

  4. Defeating the German occupiers resulted in Poland’s dependence on Soviet Union for nearly 45 years, with falsification of elections, Soviet Army presence, the Brezhnev doctrine, deportation of the population (570,000 dead and missing from 1939 to 1955), etc. It is difficult here for gratitude, because it has nothing to do with liberation, come here German invader was more virulent.

  5. Hi,

    Read your article. It is well written, but I have a few comments:

    1) “Now that the Victory Day” should be replaced by “Now that Victory Day”.
    2) In the sentence “Artjom Grishanov has the talent for condensing the essence of a topic that he sings about into a few well-selected strong words …”, I would remove “that he sings about”.

    Best regards

  6. I’ll approve the English version of you comment (as this site is in English, and not in Polish).
    It’s a good demonstration of how the post-War history is getting twisted. You forgot to mention here how many million Poles were killed by the Germans, how many million soviet soldiers died liberating Poland (should also mention here that Krakow as you see it today was saved by the Soviet soldiers in a street-by street liberation – see Dresden for how the Western allies worked). You should also mention the quick rebuilding of the war-torn Polish economy and industry (at the expense of Russia). And compare how quickly that economy again got demolished after USSR collapsed and Poland was sucked into EU. I can’t say anything about your postulated 570000 Poles. Could you, please, refer to reputable archive data for that?
    Also, do a thought experiment: what would the outcome be if Soviet troops drove the Germans out until the USSR’s borders and left it at that? By that time, Germany still had enough fight in it and could potential keep control over all of the Polish territory. By now, there would not have been any Poland or Poles at all.

  7. Hi there! Good to hear from you and thank you for the feed-back. 🙂
