1939 is the year marking the commencement of World War II, which began with a joint German-Soviet operation attacking and dividing Poland. In commemoration of this joint act, a parade of the Wehrmacht and the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army took place in Brest.
The act of jointly attacking Poland speaks of the profound collusion between the Soviet Union and Fascist Germany. The documented joint parade essentially serves as confirmation of the actual alliance between the Soviet Union and Fascist Germany.
The current Russian government dares to label Garegin Nzhdeh as a person who conspired with the fascists, who began forming the Armenian legion precisely during the Soviet-German alliance, being a citizen of Bulgaria, which in turn was allied with Germany.
Garegin Nzhdeh, primarily, was fulfilling his duty towards the country of which he was a citizen at the time, as well as his duty towards his people, who without the real force in the face of the legion created by him, would have been wiped off the face of the earth, eventually to oppose Turkey’s invasion into Armenia, which was planned at the time.
However, at some stage of their alliance, the USSR and Germany had a falling out over some matter, and turned against each other on the northern front.
In short, keep your hands off Garegin Nzhdeh. It’s high time for the Kremlin to consider how to cleanse Russia from historical betrayal, dirt, and blood on its hands. The State Duma has introduced a ban on mentioning the Soviet-German collusion and alliance at the onset of World War II, including the display of this historical footage.
