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

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

  4. 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).
