On the Genocide of the Peoples of the Soviet Union by Germany and its Accomplices during their Extermination War of 1941-1945

Statement by the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation


The decisions adopted in recent years by Russian regional courts unequivocally qualify the criminal acts of the Nazis and their accomplices as genocide of national, ethnic and racial groups that represented the population of the USSR — the peoples of the Soviet Union.

These court decisions are a logical continuation of the verdict of the Nuremberg Tribunal and the decisions of subsequent trials of Nazi criminals and their accomplices, during which, in particular, persons who were guilty of supplying Hitler’s troops with deadly weapons were convicted.

Western politicians prefer not to remember that the civilian population of the USSR, according to the plans of Hitler’s colonisation and Germanization of the “eastern space”, was subject to an all-out annihilation (Entlözung). The barbaric extermination of civilians in accordance with Generalplan Ost was carried out in all the republics of the USSR that were invaded by the Nazi German invaders.

It is the inhumane acts of these barbaric plunderers that resulted in the total number of victims among the civilian population of the USSR during the occupation reaching 13,684,692 people. These were people who were deliberately exterminated, who died in forced labour in Germany, and those who died from the deliberately cruel conditions of the occupying regime.

The State Duma <…> hereby recognizes the criminal acts of the Nazi German fascist invaders and their accomplices against the peace-loving population of the USSR as genocide of the peoples of the Soviet Union.

    I agree that these were abhorrant acts. It kind of reminds me of what is happening to the Ukrainian people at the hads of the Russians

  2. Let’s be honest here. The behavior in Ukraine has more similarities to the military actions of NATO in Serbia on behalf of the breakaway Kosovo province led by Bill Clinton. It is more similar to the attack on Iraq by the “coalition of the willing” lead by W Bush and Tony Blair. Remember them???
    Interestingly, it was the Russians who defeated Adolf Hitler and the Nazis of Germany. Not the countries of Western Europe and the USA. Never mind what Hollywood portray. 2 million Russians lost their lives fighting the Nazis in comparison to the 50 something Americans who died fighting Nazi Germany.
    It’s amazing that the US government, who for over 100 years, insist that the Monroe doctrine forbids any other power from being present in the Americas cannot understand the Russians concerns and protection of their immediate borders.
    Anyway, the Russians are going to have ALL their policy objectives met within weeks by the Fall of this year.
    Remember what happened in the Georgian state???
    History provides context to all today’s challenges.

    World War II was created and started by an alliance between Russia and Germany. The invasion of Poland (1 September – 6 October 1939) was a joint attack on the Republic of Poland by Nazi Germany, the Slovak Republic, and the Soviet Union; which marked the beginning of World War II. Stalin and Hitler planned to conquer Europe and divide the countries between themselves.

    Hitler and Stalin never met together in person. But all their secret war plans were negotiated via their diplomats and representatives. They both had similar backgrounds but totally different politics. Hitler and Stalin were both tyrants and murderers, sharing common ground with racial hatred of Jews and other ethnic groups. And both dictators suppressed opposition with brute force and controlled the media, the police and government bodies to become absolute rulers with total power over their people. Their narcissistic and sociopathic personalities, coupled with acute paranoia, demanded total loyalty from their subjects. If there is one thing that contributed to their successes as dictators, however short-lived, it was fear and the promotion of it.

    From the 1920s through his death in 1953, Joseph Stalin ruled the Soviet Union through fear and violence. He instituted punitive policies that resulted in devastating famines, sent his enemies to prison camps, and executed those he believed opposed him. So, how many people did Stalin kill? Joseph Stalin killed at least 9 million people through mass murder, forced labor, and famine, but the true figure may be as high as 60 million. If the figure of 60 million dead is accurate that would mean that an average of 2 million were killed during each year of Stalin’s horrific reign – or 40,000 every week. Many of those killed were Jews, Stalin was highly antisemitic.

    During the era of the Holocaust, Hitler’s authorities just like Stalin didn’t just kill Jews. They targeted and killed other groups, including at times their children, because of their perceived racial and biological inferiority: Roma View This Term in the Glossary (Gypsies), Germans with disabilities, and some of the Slavic peoples (especially Poles and Russians). Other groups were persecuted for political or ideological reasons, or on the basis of what the Nazi regime considered to be criminal behavior. Among these groups were Communists, Socialists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and gay men. Hitlers regime killed between 7 and 11 million, certainly at least 6 million Jews.

    1939: The invasion of Poland (1 September – 6 October 1939) was a joint attack on the Republic of Poland by Nazi Germany, the Slovak Republic, and the Soviet Union, which marked the beginning of World War II. The German invasion began on 1 September 1939, one week after the signing of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact between Germany and the Soviet Union, and one day after the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union had approved the pact. The Soviets invaded Poland on 17 September. The campaign ended on 6 October with Germany and the Soviet Union dividing and annexing the whole of Poland under the terms of the German–Soviet Frontier Treaty. The invasion is also known in Poland as the September campaign (Polish: kampania wrześniowa) or 1939 defensive war (Polish: wojna obronna 1939 roku) and known in Germany as the Poland campaign (German: Überfall auf Polen, Polenfeldzug).

    German forces invaded Poland from the north, south, and west the morning after the Gleiwitz incident. Slovak military forces advanced alongside the Germans in northern Slovakia. As the Wehrmacht advanced, Polish forces withdrew from their forward bases of operation close to the Germany–Poland border to more established defense lines to the east. After the mid-September Polish defeat in the Battle of the Bzura, the Germans gained an undisputed advantage. Polish forces then withdrew to the southeast where they prepared for a long defence of the Romanian Bridgehead and awaited expected support and relief from France and the United Kingdom. On 3 September, based on their alliance agreements with Poland, the United Kingdom and France declared war on Germany; in the end their aid to Poland was very limited. France invaded a small part of Germany in the Saar Offensive, and the Polish army was effectively defeated even before the British Expeditionary Force could be transported to Europe, with the bulk of the BEF in France by the end of September.

    On 17 September, the Soviet Red Army invaded Eastern Poland, the territory beyond the Curzon Line that fell into the Soviet “sphere of influence” according to the secret protocol of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact; this rendered the Polish plan of defence obsolete. Facing a second front, the Polish government concluded the defence of the Romanian Bridgehead was no longer feasible and ordered an emergency evacuation of all troops to neutral Romania. On 6 October, following the Polish defeat at the Battle of Kock, German and Soviet forces gained full control over Poland. The success of the invasion marked the end of the Second Polish Republic, though Poland never formally surrendered.

    On 8 October, after an initial period of military administration, Germany directly annexed western Poland and the former Free City of Danzig and placed the remaining block of territory under the administration of the newly established General Government. The Soviet Union incorporated its newly acquired areas into its constituent Byelorussian and Ukrainian republics, and immediately started a campaign of Sovietization. In the aftermath of the invasion, a collective of underground resistance organizations formed the Polish Underground State within the territory of the former Polish state. Many of the military exiles who escaped Poland joined the Polish Armed Forces in the West, an armed force loyal to the Polish government-in-exile.

    1941: Germany invaded Russia. It was due to the behest of the communist hating Catholic Church that Germany attacked Russia. Until then Russia was in total collaboration with Germany and Hitlers Nazi regime. Until then Russia was a nazi supporter and was up for partnering in all Germanies evils at that time. The Vatican and Hitlers Nazi party signed a treaty July 20, 1933, called the Reichskonkordat (“Concordat between the Holy See and the German Reich”) is a treaty negotiated between the Vatican and the emergent Nazi Germany. It was signed for the Vatican by Cardinal Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli, who later became Pope Pius XII, on behalf of Pope Pius XI and Vice Chancellor Franz von Papen on behalf of President Paul von Hindenburg and the German government. Adolph Hitler was a staunch Catholic. Had this not of happened Germany and the USSR would probably rule the world today. Hitler invaded Russia June 22,1941, Germany was defeated, and it cost the Germans the war.

    Russia had the dirtiest hands in Europe yesterday, and they still have the dirtiest hands today. They are todays Nazis, not the Ukraines.They have never been faithful to their treaties and are untrustworthy scoundrels.
