Surprise! Huge "Big Three" monument unveiled in Yalta, Crimea

Outside the town of Yalta, Crimea today, the Speaker of Russia's lower parliament calls for today's global powers to remember the lessons of Yalta. Really I have to ask: What could those be? Does anyone have any idea?

The rehabilitation of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin continues as the Russians don't waste any time in putting up a huge monument to reinforce their claim to a disputed land mass.

Today, Russians unveiled a 10-ton monument of Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin to mark the 70th Anniversary of their so-called "Big Three" summit from Feb. 4-11, 1945 in the town of Yalta on the Crimean Peninsula.

The 300,000 native Crimean Taters, who are Muslim and boycotted last year's referendum, have been against the installation of the sculpture because they were persecuted under Josef Stalin's rule--accused of collaborating with National Socialist Germany and deported to Central Asia. Many died of disease and starvation.

Stalin is the tallest

The sculpture by Russian Zurab Tsereteli depicts the leaders seated on chairs as in the familiar, widely propagated photographs,  with a sickly U.S President Roosevelt seated between Britain's Churchill on the left and the Soviet despot Stalin on the right. Not surprisingly, Stalin is 4 inches higher than his co-criminals which are 10 ft. high.

From AFP:

Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Sergei Naryshkin, speaker of the Russian parliament's lower house, said that as global powers seek to settle the Ukraine crisis the West should remember the lessons of the Yalta talks [Yikes, what lessons?] including "readiness for dialogue." [But the reality is that Stalin dominated the talks because Roosevelt was incapacitated and had Soviet moles on his "team" at Yalta, while Britain was in too weak a position to stand up to Stalin. This was a conference that should never have taken place.]

But analyst Vyacheslav Nikonov, grandson of Stalin's foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov, said it was hardly possible to stage a similar meeting now.

"The West lacks political figures of the calibre of Churchill and Roosevelt," he told AFP. Oh wow, these two murderers and world-wreckers are what the Russian government holds in high esteem. Today, there is no one up to that level to meet with current Soviet murderer-in-chief Vlad Putin

Also of note:

Tsereteli first hoped to see the monument installed a decade ago but Ukrainian authorities dropped the plan after outraged Crimean Tatars took to the streets across the peninsula. Ukraine, then under strong Russian dominance to install the offensive sculpture, used the fierce objections of the Taters to derail the project. Now, with the Russian takeover, it appears, as a symbol of Russia's dogmatic assertions as to the "absolute goodness" of the WWII victory that resulted from the unnatural joining of the West and East.

Comparable to Jewish takeover of land

My further reaction to this surprising event is to compare it to the way Jews immediately erect large monuments to themselves on land that they have determined is a Jewish burial ground of "hundreds of holocaust victims" without turning over more than a foot of ground. They then declare that their religious laws against "disturbing the dead" applies, preventing any investigation from taking place. See the end of my ariticle here. Soviet monuments and Jewish monuments are very similar in looks and in purpose.

This is the Russia that so many Whites are trying to tell us are the "good guys" in this conflict with Ukraine. I can only see such a stance as a completely unprincipled position.


Russia, World War II


War compensation suggestion highlights breakdown in Moscow-Berlin relations over Ukraine war
A Russian MP has demanded that Germany pay Moscow "3 trillion-4 trillion euros" compensation for World War Two. That's according to Radio Free Europe, who say the Russian lawmaker has urged a committee be setup to determine the final reparations figure. 
Last week, just months after the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was reported that Russian lawmakers were considering describing Germany's 1990 reunification as "illegal".
Russian Communists said that the so-called 'annexation' of Soviet-backed East German state by West Germany took place without a referendum. 
Russia and Germany had been allies until the Kremlin annexed Crimea from Ukraine and sent in troops to fight alongside militants in the east of the country. These latest moves highlight how the relationship between the two European powers has broken down.

Are there any Pigeon Whisperers out there?  I'd settle for a photoshopped picture if not. 

But... but Putin is our lord and savior?

Germany Agrees to $300 Million More in Restitution to Survivors
Holocaust blackmail continues

New York (JTA): Germany has agreed to provide restitution payments to an additional 80,000 Jews in what Claims Conference officials are describing as a historic breakthrough.
The agreement, which was reached Monday in negotiations between German officials and Claims Conference representatives, is likely to result in additional payments of approximately $300 million. Most of the money will go to Nazi victims in the former Soviet Union who have never before qualified for pensions or payments from German restitution money.
"This is the last group of people who have never received any compensation," Greg Schneider, the executive vice president of the Claims Conference, said in a telephone interview from Washington, where the negotiations took place. Most of the money will come from the Hardship Fund, which grants one-time payouts of 2,556 euros -- approximately $3,150 -- to Jews who fled the Nazis as they swept eastward through Europe. Until now, those payments were not available to Jews in Ukraine, Russia and other non-European Union countries in Eastern Europe. Applications for the fund will be available starting Nov. 1 (see:
In Monday's negotiations, Germany also agreed to equalize the monthly pensions it sends to survivors around the world, correcting what until now had been a disparity that saw survivors living in western countries receiving more than those in eastern countries. All survivors will now receive the equivalent of approximately $370 per month. Germany also agreed to relax the eligibility rules for those who receive restitution payments for being forced into hiding during the Nazi era. Until now, only those who went into hiding for at least 12 months were eligible; now the eligibility threshold will be six months.
Since 1951 Germany has paid more than 102 billion marks, about $61.8 billion at 1998 exchange rates, in federal government reparation payments to Israel and Third Reich victims. In addition, Germans have paid out billions in private and other public funds, including about 75 million marks ($49 million) by German firms in compensation to wartime forced laborers, the Welt am Sonntag newspaper reported. These figures are based on calculations by the German Finance Ministry.
