Photographer Sergey Larenkov had been making these pictures for long six years. They depict cities ruined by WWII including those European hero-cities that were liberated from the fascism in bloody battles.

    You still dont understand Poland or Latvia – do you?. Its not about losing memory about liberators – it is all about remembering what happened after WW2 – forced soviet occupation…

    Liberators?! F***ing occupiers!!! Brest was a polish city, occupied by the Soviet Union since 1939!!!

  4. juan says:

    If I remember well the so-called “occupiers” were well received by the people and so-called “liberators” not.

    Now THIS is what I call art. Interesting, pleases the eye, AND takes effort to produce.

    Impressive. And now all these European cities which cost so many million lives to defend and to conquer, belong to savage mobs and hordes from Asia and Africa, who took them over in the course of just several years, without a single shot.
