The City Demolished By the War

The City Demolished By the War

The whole city was built for the movie decorations in Yaroslavl. They tried to built Stalingrad ruined by battles in 1942-43. When you find yourself in this fake city you get horrified by thinking what was it like to be in real Stalingrad of those years…

      • Lie. USSR just bough time to prepare for war.
        Before war, USSR only take back what is former part of it, Western Belorussia, for example, which taken away from USSR by Poland, in russian Civil war time, and Karelia, which taken away by another agressor, finnish nazy, in russian Civil War time.
        Both actions done in order to secure Leningrad and Moscow in case of german attack – atleast, big space will buy time.
        Without whis, Leningrad will be has been destroyed, leveled down to ground, all citizens – killed.
        Moskow will fall too.

        • WRONG!! Stalin was REPEATEDLY warned about Barbarossa. He refused to believe any warnings. If he was buying time, why did he let the Germans so far into the country? Why did he rely so heavily on the weather to halt the Nazi advance?
          Stalin was not a god, he made mistakes but he recovered from them.

    • Hitler and Stalin were best friend too – before year 1941 of course. Remember – Hitller attacked SSSR when half of Europe was already occupied by SSSR (part of Poland, Finland, Romania, and all baltic republic). SSSR was already kicked of United Nations for attack on Finland.

      • Again, that Bessarabia, or Moldavia (its modern name) historically never been part of Romania, but part of Russian Empire and Russia.
        And again, its taken away by romanian nazy in russian civil war time.
        Baltic republics was not attacked by USSR. They have many communists in their gouverments, and they decided to join USSR in the face of new world war. We are not forced them to do this.
        Read real history books and stop posting here your brainwashed lie.

    • True. We not therat modern german as our enemy.
      Even Bismark warned all his successors: do not start war with Russia. And this is true. Better be your friens.

  1. Looks real. But I thought that there were still plenty of war torn cities with real ruins left in Eastern Europe? I am ashamed to admit, I get the siege of Leningrad and the siege of Stalingrad confused.

    • siege of leningrad was very long from 41-44. it was classic siege.
      germans never reach city center ,just suburbs. it was horrible siege,everyday shelling. city population was reduced from 2.5 (start of war) to couple hundred thousands after braking siege. better not to tell u details (canibalisam, ladoga etc).
      siege of Stalingrad is more battle for stalingrad cuz it was urban confrontation in city.
      one of the biggest battles in history. You maybe watch ENEMY AT THE GATES, thats Stalingrad.

      • Leningrad is taken in blockade by german, italian and finnish nazy.
        City deblocked only after 872 days.
        All medical, civillian and food transports has been attacked every time they try to reach city or leave it. There is “Road of life” on the Ladoga river, where we trying evecuate people and transport food. Its turned in road of death many times.
        1,5 millions of civillians died in this blockade. Most of them starved to death, others died under enemy bombs and shells. Many if them are childrens.
        Nazy do not let russians evecuate city`s civilians, and this blockade became one of most grim part of the wat, part of henocide of russian nation.

  2. IMHO if they had promised UK and Ireland to the USSR and launched a joint invasion of the islands things would be very different. And Stalin would have gone for that. A nice re-fuelling depot in the Atlantic for him. Anyway if the NSDAP had used mustard gas and Sturmgewehrs they would have won Operation Barbarossa.

    • Stalin and Hitler are not friends. After Hitler`s arrival as new Germany leader, all trade operations between USSR and Germany was stopped, for example.
      USSR started preparations for german invasion, but its too late. That NAP just bough some time for USSR, not more.
      Before war, Red Army too weak and not finished to changing old, outdated weaponry, do not have enough troops or amunitions.
      Red Army in this time cant attack any really strong european country, its only can manage to defend USSR borders.

  3. It was wery easy to prepare this set – some russian cities looks like this naturally, therefore only missing piece was this 88mm german gun 🙂

    • It may looks like that again. Peace here “bought” by russian gouverment, but chechen terrorists think they win and getting reparations from Moscow. But they are wrong.

  4. I love Russia. They tricked some movie company into spending millions to build an abandoned and beaten up town when there are hundreds of them already existing in real life. Half the country is abandoned and derelict. LOL
