For the first time in the history of modern Russia, the marches of the “Immortal Regiment” have been canceled in most Russian cities. The reason for this is not the safety of the participants, but the regime’s growing inability to keep the masses in line. The authorities are openly afraid that the participants of these covens will come not with portraits of their “grandfathers” prepared by local officials, but with photos of their children, husbands, wives, brothers, and sisters who died during the so-called “Special operation”. This time 9 May has been accompanied by information background about explosions near the Russian Ministry of Defence, threats of drone strikes on Moscow, and dozens of anti-war events in Russia.
The Russian authorities, which have always used history as a tool not only for propaganda and fakes but also for hybrid aggression, decided to “bury” some of the historical facts concerning the outbreak of the Second World War and the role of the USSR.
