    All Jews still in 1945 in E. European German controlled concentration camps were freed by the Red Army.

    3 B-29s wouldn't make the same mistake in navigation, so he's telling the truth- the USSR needed a comparable bomber for the post war period.

    From that document it sounds like this is a situation where Ukraine and perhaps Belarus will be emphasised over Russia to effectively obscure the history of WWII in Russia by emphasising what happened to others.... traditionally in the west most attention was given to Jewish experience during that conflict and the majority of the suffering was ignored because it was on Soviet territory and the victims were Soviets which we didn't really care about promoting.

    Now that Ukraine and potentially Belarus are looking to the EU and HATO then sucking up to the radicals in those populations makes sense...
