On the Victims of Political Repressions memorial day the radio Echo of Moscow posted an image of the Nazi Germany soldiers captured by the Soviet Army. The text above the image talks about president Putin unveiling the memorial to the victims of the political repressions.
Published records indicate that out of approximately 3 million German soldiers captured on the territory of the Soviet Union, 381,067 German Wehrmacht POWs died. 356,700 German nationals and 24,367 from other nations.
Approximately 18 to 20 million Russian people had died as the result of the Red Terror and following Bolsheviks and Trotskyists political repressions.
From the period of 1921 to 1965, 3,777,380 persons were convicted for the counter-revolutionary crimes. 642,980 people were executed.
Approximately 10 million people died as the result of the Liberal terror of the 1990s.
From its creation, the Echo of Moscow editorial team and most of its guests have been staunch supporters of neoliberal ideology also known as Neo-Trotskyism.
While we grieve over the innocent victims of political repressions, we also remember who were organizers.
I have wrote already about the speech of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin given at a meeting with representatives of the European Jewish Congress in September 2014. In his speech the President of Russia stated that the First Soviet government was 85% Jewish and that the Red Terror orchestrated by this government and its ideology killed millions of Russians.
The message that President Putin conveyed at a meeting with representatives of the European Jewish Congress in September 2014:
“The decision to nationalize the Schneersohn library was made by the first Soviet government, members of which were Jews. There was about 80 to 85% of Jews in this government. However, it was them who, directed by false ideological considerations went to conduct repressions and arrests of many Orthodox Christians and followers of Judaism, and representatives of other religions, including Muslims. They combed up all.[meaning, they were repressing and arresting everybody in the country.] These ideological blunders and false ideology, thank God, have collapsed.”
