    1st Polish Armoured Division - THE BLACK DEVILS MARCH

    9th of May it’s a big russian holiday - Dien Pabiedy (V-E Day) and, at the same time, it’s a day of crazy russian quasi-religion, time of false mythology and lies about the past and history. The bitter result of many years of post-soviet fantasy is military intervention in Ukraine, which is praised by Russian society. It’s very sad, specially for people, who would like to see Russia among civilized, democratic countries. That wish tourn out to be a great illusion, full of naivety.


    But let’s back to our presentation

    This is Ирина Черепко / Irina Cherepko, paramedic (medical instructor / cанитарный инструктор / санинструктор), she was born in Kiev. Her father, Anatoly Vasilievish Cherepko was a military surgeon. Her mother Olga was absurdly accused of collaboration with the Polish intelligence and the NKVD arrested her in 1937. She was lucky they didn't shot her. Received a sentence - 10 years of the Gulag. Irina interrupted his studies at medical and volunteered - despite the prohibition of the father - she joined the Red Army in 1943.

    - It was hard for me, NKVD and SMIERSZ all the time kept an eye on me, because I was Ukrainien, and my mother was “an enemy of the state” and was in gulag – says Irina. According to NKVD the worst were the people coming from west part of Ukraine. NKVD claimed that they were all nationalists, enemies of communism and Stalin,people who cannot be controlled and that they deserve only for execution by shooting or death on the battlefield.

    She fought in the Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia, in the Carpathian Mountains in the Battle of the Dukla Pass in the autumn of 1944 (At the same time the Operation Market Garden taken place on the Western Front). She was injured, but recovered and reached Berlin in May 1945.

    Now Irina is still well and lives in Kiev. In 1991 she was very happy to witness moment, in which Ukraine gain independency. In 2004 she was happy that Orange Revolution won, but later she was angry that ideas so quickly became just empty promises and money ordinary people were stolen by corrupt politicians, who had some liaisons with Russia. Now she believes that Ukraine will be a free country. She doesn’t have so much power as she used to, but she would still fight for it. She cannot stand the fact, that Russians are so blinded by Putins propaganda. Even some of her former brothers in arms called her and other Ukrainian patriots “fascists”, like NKVD did, back in the 70s. Her eyes are full of tears when she says: “How they can lie so much in Moskau, how they can attack our country, how they can occupy The Crimea?”.

    Nice collection, but in USSR all the nations was never discriminated over the nationality, due there was only a one nation- Soviet peoples. All what has been done by German collaborationists has been never mentioned, due the reason- the Soviet peoples cannot be a friends of the enemy, and that was forbidden thing. USSR was build at the working class system, but never national or race. Today we can see that the "grain of national hatred is put on" in Ukraine, as the same as it has been realized in Balticum.

    You are wrong Dimas. Of course, theoretically there were no discriminations in Soviet Union, but that was only in theory, because enemies of the working class, anti-communists and collaborationists were killed, sent to gulags, sent to Siberia or Kazakhstan, and that was because of national discrimination. Moreover, because of that there were genocides of Ukrainians, Poles, Germans, Tatars and, right before Stalin died, of Jews. The list is of course much longer. There were other reasons as well: social class: capitalists, intelligentsia; potential treat: officers of Red Army, old members of communist party, doctors…and that’s how it was in this “idyllic”, bloody Soviet Union, which is so praised by Russians and Putin; by Putin, who himself was in KGB, institution, who discriminated, kept in prison and killed many people.
    And going back to Ukraine and Baltic countries, there is no “grain of national hatred”, only people are afraid of “sick, stupid Russian imperialism”, which is condemned by entire world.
