During the WW2 Russian Army was using a "Fire Hedgehog" - the set of 88 Tommy-gun alike machine guns loaded into a plane. It was used at low attitude flights to effectively saw off hundreds of enemy soldiers. When the pilot got above some Nazi
crowd the pilot of started fire, then the doors in the plane's bottom were opened and this Fire Hedgehog was coming into play, eighty something non-stop firing machine guns could really look like the Hedgehog from Hell.
In Russia they have celebrated "The Victory Day" a few days ago. Most of the cities were decorated with billboards regarding this date etc etc. Some of the billboard authors failed big time. For example this billboard from Chelyabinsk city, reading "Happy Victory Day" has a picture of a few
soldiers on the tank. People from internet got a closer look for that picture and has found that these are... Nazi soldiers standing near the captured Russian tank celebrating their small victory. Below is the bigger picture. Some other fails also are listed downthere:
A few days ago an anniversary for the blockade of St. Petersburg city during the World War 2. For more than two years the city was in the tight circle of German troops. The front line was already in the suburbs and the downtown was bombed
constantly. People suffered from the hunger and illnesses. Tens of thousands died. For those who survived it's a great day, and those guys dressed in WW2 uniforms dedicate this show for them, the heroes of the blocked city.
During World War 2 the Nazi soldiers besides their rifles had also cameras handy and made a lot of photos of the conquered territories. Such pictures were banned in Soviet Russia because they didn't fit in the official agenda. According to Soviet propaganda Nazis were not much better than wild dangerous animals killing and torturing civilians and burning down every village they enter. Later, after the collapse of USSR some amount of evidence started arriving from abroad to Russia, showing that it was not so bad under the short German rule for the Russian people, some really enjoyed some freedoms they didn't have under
the Soviet rule. Like on the top picture people depicted throwing rocks at the Lenin monument. Also private property was restored and people could compete freely opening some businesses. Still such talks are not welcomed in modern Russia too because practically every Russian family has someone who was killed as a soldier during WW2 and accepting the fact that it was not so bad under the Nazis means to somehow reject the fact that their fathers died for the better future. Still here are some photos from Germans of Russian people and German soldiers during WW2.
