  1. Ms Nunes, what do you mean by white people in Russia?
    I think Russians are still overwhelmingly white. No? Compare Putin and Obama, Putin looks white enough. No?
    I saw the cadetts from a Russian training ship in Cape Town harbour a few years ago. Those boys were so pale, if I had not seen them walking, speaking and smoking I would have thought they were dead.

  2. Fantastic photos of the finest fighting men and women the world has ever seen ! My utmost respect to them and especially to the ones who paid the ultimate sacrifice and died in action – Hero’s one and all !

  3. The 4th photo in 3rd series is a killer.
    “Comrade agitprop! Whoever released the photo of the glorious Red Army soldier looking like a journeyman will be shot immediately!”

  4. It’s a pity that names and their fate couldn’t be included. Where did they end up, who survived and who died? Surely their story could be better told.
