      • There are a lot of movies filmed and filming in Lvov. So this is deffenetly movie is being filmed. not fest or anything like that.

          • Why the hell would someone “RE-Live” that horrible part of history? With so many Jews in Russia I would think that this blasphemous act would NEVER happen? WTF Russia?

            • This is obviously a movie being made. That having been said…USSR, during WWII lost 9,000,000 (that’s nine million, folks) people. The country with the next highest casualty rate was the U.K., which lost 400,000.
              Russia gets to do whatever it wants with the Nazi stuff. Though the atrocities against the Jewish people were horrific, other things happened during that war too.

              • Your statistics are WAAAAAAY off; Russia lost 23.6 million in WWII, almost 12 million civilian and 11 million military. The UK did lose about 450k, but they are 14th in wartime casualties; of note before them are China, Poland, Germany, France, and Italy.

                • That’s NOT Russia, but Soviet Union. By now you should already have learnt, that there were other nations in USSR.

                  Of 20 millions lost in WWI by USSR, 10 millions were Ukrainians. Ukraine lost a way more civilians then any other nation, including Russia.

                  • Wow — the ignorance here is amazing. How many times have I seen the word “Russia” mentioned here?

                    Before the war, Lviv was part of Poland, and prior WWI part of Austria. But that should be obvious by the photos, no? Around the time of the war, Lviv’s population was split between Polish, Ukrainian, and Jewish, making it one of the most multi-cultural cities in Europe at the at time. The main languages at the time were Polish, Ukrainian, and German.

                    Skip forward a few decades and a few thousand pages of history which you’ve probably never heard of, and today it is considered the most Ukrainian city in the world.

            • Probably just a movie, or a documentary being made, what I think is ironic is to see russian neo nazies, I mean the guy just killed 20 million of yours, wanted to destroy your country and slave your people, and you praise him???? Humm just not the smartest thing to do

  1. What is this? Any description? I think the resurgence of Nazism in Russia could be a good thing if it keeps the Muslim crowed under control. Hopefully, these Nazi’s will have enough power to get Russia involved in joining the US to conquer the middle east and wipe out the evil religion of Islam once and for all.

    • Make no mistake, it is the eleventh hour and we must act swiftly and with magnificent brute force. In the name of the heroes of the Reich like Rudolph Hess who was imprisoned by the evil communists. Death to Islam!!!!

      • Death to Islam? thats crude. Alot of the middles east (not withstanding the extremism left from the Reagan era support of the former Shah of Iran [the reason for their grudege against the US to this day {that and supporting the unlawful occupancy by Arab hating war mongering land stealing Jews}]

        Besides, I always thought it was about getting the Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals.

          • They were never nazi. Nazi occupied but never Nazi. Alot of the nazis were simply misguided youth who went to far in following the crowd, but afterwards they became monsters. They look upon slavics as good for nothing but to screw then shoot at. To be forced to do heavy labor and serve. as inferior and animal like.

            To be a slavic nazi is to be a traitor to the legacy flowing through your very veins and is a slap in the face of all slavic peoples.

            Tsk tsk,
            of course, by now im pretty sure,
            youre just playing along to catalyze the board a bit?

            Haha, good play.
            But you have layed it on pretty thick
            and we have generally found you out.


      • The high ranking Nazi Rudolph Hesse was imprisoned by the UK government under the leadership of the famous anti-Commnist Conservative Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, who’d made a name for himself in his youth as a brave soldier and successful writer.

        This is the same Winston Churchill who was in charge when the UK was the only nation left in the world fighting the Nazis: no help from the USA, nothing from the USSR (although the UK did have a lot of help from the Commonwealth and what was left of the empire).

        And he was in charge when the Nazis were finally beaten in 1945, with a good deal of help from the USSR and USA. Let us not forget that the USA wanted paying for a lot of the help it gave, and that debt has only recently been cleared.

  2. Are you trying to be creative or inflamatory with the headline on this? Obviously it is a movie set…but the way the comment reads up top, it almost sounds like the poster believes this to be a real event.

    If creative…good try, but not quite. If inflamatory, you should be shot by the people in the pictures.

    • Ummm… this is western Ukraine.

      Pretty sure this is what the Russians were trying to suppress and conquer when they won World War II. Then they even rewrote history to try to pretend nothing good here ever existed. Just a couple years back, the Russians tried to kill the President of Ukraine, ever pick up a paper?

      Too bad the United States and other European countries still kiss up to Russia out of fear, just like they still do with Communist China.

    • “What I am curious about, though is: what BTR-152 and Jeep are doing there?”

      I was wondering that myself. Those vehicles have no relation to WWII Nazi vehicles.

      • This was one of the results of the Molotov/von Ribbentrop Pact. The contract was cut in 1940. BMW supplied engineering drawings and casting moulds. Production of the Russian M-72 began a year later. Not suprisingly, BMW was introducing a replacement for the R-71 anyway. The R-35 is a cool bike though.

  3. Don’t panic!! Looks like they are making a movie.Look at the people’s clothing, vintage cars, propaganda posters, ect. I would like to see this movie when it comes out. Some movies that I can think of that have been recently filmed in Russia are The Widowmaker K-19 starring Harrison Ford, The Castaway starring Tom Hanks, The Russian Specialist and a new movie starring Daniel Craig. What are some other movies that have been filmed in Russia?

    • There are many new Russian films – only in English to find them difficultly, but it is possible
      And is the Soviet films even more

      Some Russian films of last time
      Brigada (Crime drama)
      V avguste 44-go
      9 rota
      Osobennosti natsionalnoy okhoty

      Probably, the most severe Russian film about war
      Idi i smotri

  4. This is very obviously a movie set; a camera setup is visible in one of the shots as is a boom microphone in another. Fascinating photos, and considering that the Soviet Union lost 27 million of its citizens during WW2, 2/3 of them civilians, I’m surprised that any portion of the Former USSR permits any movie of this kind to be shot there. I wonder who the production company is, and what the movie is. Of course, money is desperately needed in the former USSR, so I suppose that anything could be done to earn foreign currency.

  5. Peterm: Of course, I’m sorry, I forgot that there are many war movies shot all over the world. that does worry me a little. It seems that immediately prior to as conflagration of one kind or another, all the old war movies are dredged out and reshown, and new ones are made. It would appear to me that we’re going through such a cycle now. Worrisome!

  6. I certainly hope tis is simply a recreation and/or a filming rather than a “what could have been” scene created by neonazis based in the Eastern Bloc. THe Red Army was atrocious, but the best theyve ever done was defeat the evil fascists.

    The Red heroes of the nation are probably spinning int heir graves about now…

      • Их подвиги будут жить вечно, их имена бессмертны!
        (Their heroical deeds will live eternaly, their names will be immortal!)

    • Retreats were punishable by sending the coward (or the intelligent) one to a penal batallion called “Shtrafbat”. In the shtrafbat they were shoot in case of retreat, that’s true, but that didn’t happen in the regular batallions.

  7. Ok, I could go off about the Nazi thing, but I think that people realize by this time that it’s a movie set.
    Secondly, this is NOT Kharkov, it’s the opera house in Lviv, in Western Ukraine. I was just there recently, so I know this to be true. You can even check against the official Lviv Opera web page.

  8. Webmaster…

  9. Hello from France.
    I was there, it was early august and they were shooting a movie. That’s it.
    (Lvov is a great town, full of cool people, and we enjoyed ourselves very much there)

  10. The jewz and the Rothschilds killed 60 million Christians in Russian territories, especially the Ukraine and Belarus. I don’t blame them for embracing the Swastika.

  11. me parace algo sesacional el mundo tiene que recordar que los nazis iban a cambiar el mundo e iva a ser la potencia mundial vivan los el regimen nacional socialista (nazi)

  12. The Reichsadlerfahne can be bought from some militaria sites for quite a price. These are of course replicas, the real things will be hard to come by. Unfortunately I do not remember the site.

    @Geroy Sovetskogo Soyuza: There were four types of Reichsadler used by the NS. One was the more familiar spread-wings version: the one with the garlands is the official party symbol. Those used on the flags here are another version.

  13. Doesn’t the author of this post think that it would be much better to make a description behind the photos about what’s going on there. These are movie filming decorations. If i’m not mistaken, the movie is about one Greek-Catholic priest from Lvov ( Andrey Sheptytsky), who saved many jews while hiding them behind the walls of monasteries and temples. While you do not put any normal description for this post it looks more like a provocation and claiming than an informative publication. Same was made by russians in one of their newspapers, where on the front page they posted one of these photos with nazi-style decorations and signed it with smth like this: “While they’re fighting for the governance in Kyiv, in Lvov the nazis came to power”. Actually in the same movie there is scene from the soviet occupation aswell where over the town-house and opera building are decorated with soviet simbolics and actors in the red army uniform are around..

  14. Aqui do Brasil se me pareceu que era um encontro de nazistas, a tradução do Google não é lá essas coisas.

    Concordo que o autor deveria ter colocado informações detalhadas sobre as fotos, é um set de filmagem.


  15. Hello, recently found this blog but I have to say that it seems nice. I fully agree with you. Have a nice day, keep up the nice work and I’ll definitely keep checking your blog.I just got in to the BF BC2 PC

  16. Yeah – thats how russian white trash behaves these days !
    These arseholes are more NAZI than todays people in germany !
    The should be sent to a specially for them reopened GULAG in VORKUTA !
    To never return !
    The whole russian soul is more alike to NAZI ideology than that of any western european – including the germans !
    THEY did not learn a thing out of WW II either !

  17. Also, ich kann kein englisch und Ahnung hab ich auch wenig aber soviel weis ich, das einzigste was hier stimmt sind die Hakenkreuze.

  18. Lwów, my Polish Lvov, what these damn Banderystanians do with him!
    PS. Thanks Russians for proper name Lvov, not Lviv ;)!
    SS Galizien und OUN-UPA, always nationalsozialismus.
    Bohdan Staszynski our true hero.

  19. Our beautiful Lwów. After the war, when new borders were setting, nothing would show that Lwów will be torn out of Poland. It was a backbone of polish culture, architecture, education, teaching and science. It was a supranational city, multicultural – a real rarity then. The population was about 60% of polish, next 40% was ukrainians and judes. (Of course nowadays the ukrainians want to prove it was absolutely opposite and I understand them).
    New borders were set up, and Lwów was in Poland. But when Stalin saw the border line – he said no. Nobody of the polish and british government could change his mind. No facts, like – most of ppl there were polish, that Lwów is polish for 600 years..
    So he gave Lwów to ukrainians.. all the people were thrown out, nearly all goods had to be left (everyone could take only small pack with personal stuff, (paintings from museums, equipment of galleries.. all of this is still there etc.). Russians put on their places all countrymen, ordinary ppl from coutrysides.. they didnt even know what tea cup was used for. And when we wanted UK to mediate, the main argument – 60% of polish ppl – was gone. All of these people were separated and spreaded all over current Poland – to prevent any possible opposition in the future…
    Ukrainians are very proud of Lwów – because it’s a Paris of the central Europe.
    Althrough it should be inside Poland (just disctring of Lwów was going to be annexed) it is there. The city is detoriated a lot, no investments, no plannings.. nothing changed since the end of the war. Lwów meant and mean for polish nation a lot, and we just say to unkrainians – DO NOT DESTROY LWÓW, DO NOT DESTROY POLISH MONUMENTS, CHURCHES, GRAVES, HISTORY. Oherwise Lwów will not be Lviv any more. Do not interfere to architecture, style… You just deceive yourself that Lwów was only ukrainian – it was a multi national city. Remember this.

  20. Lwów was, is and will be a Polish city! It will return to it’s Motherland sooner or later! Lwów should go back to Poland as soon as possible!

  21. You are spelling the name of the city wrong – it isn’t L’viv but it’s Lvov or Lwów. That’s because Lwów is a Polish city and it should return to Poland.

  22. Imagine, it wasn’t that long ago the we Americans hated the Russians! It’s good to see that we were wrong. The Russians
    are actually on a better path than we are these days.
