    Interesting photos, but plumply failed propaganda attempt. Those soviet soldiers fought against an enemy who crushed & invaded other nations to “protect minorities” – and used as toilet paper treaties and agreements.

  2. john says:

    Excellent photo’s.

  3. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Sevastopol – liberated 1944, freed 1991, conquered again 2014.

  4. jeff1101 says:

    You can’t conquer what was already yours. Soviet Union ‘gave’ Crimea to Ukraine. Russia is just taking it back.

  5. koko says:

    If Crimea is russian, this is not Crimea, but crime.

  6. Fulano says:

    Your german is really bad. On page 6 the sign in german says: “Restricted Area. Access only with written authorization”

  7. ptahton says:

    Well, you are right about german part of sign (I think it`s for german spoken soldiers). But the part of sing on Russian is “Prohibited area! Stop or be shot dead” (I think it`s for Russian people).
