Hello comrades and Genossen,

Lately I got into a debate on YouTube about the Red Army and the Wehrmacht. Someone claimed that the Red Army raped and killed many Germans (which is true, there is a lot of evidence). But this person claimed that the Wehrmacht did not rape nor burn nor kill any Soviet villages. He even said that many Russians and Ukrainians welcomed the Wehrmacht.

Is this all true? It all seems like a bunch of baloney to me.

Many Russians and Ukrainians did welcome the Wehrmacht at first. Ex-kulaks, dispossessed Tsarist officers, and others with an axe to grind against Stalin. Vlasov and Bar-Komorowski were eager to switch sides, and plenty more followed suit.

And there is plenty of evidence the Wehrmacht committed crimes in Russia. Google "Wehrmacht crimes in Russia." Page after page will come up.

Yes, I believe the guy was a Nazi-sympathiser, he had a strange name and a strange profile pic as well.

I wouldn't be suprised. They're known to twist facts (that have solid evidence) and claim it didn't happen. Trust me, no side in war is ever clean.

That is true, I'm not even denying that the Red Army did terrible things in Berlin. It's a pity how many people always see the communist/socialist countries as bad. Sure, gulags if you do anything bad, repressive secret police and sometimes empty stores (actually people had a lot of food in their closets at home in the USSR, it was called "a Soviet miracle") But America: mass genocide of native Americans, ignorance, 50% obese population while other people are starving. You know, it all depends on what you grew up with, I can understand why many Russians and other post-Soviet people want to go back. They probably long for the times of simplicity, they probably feel overwhelmed with choice now.
