DPR: Boris Litvinov – Video Conference – Communist Parties of the UPC-CPSU! (28.5.2022) 

Petro Symonenko began his speech by describing the current situation in Ukraine, in particular, he spoke about the active ‘De-Communization’ carried out by the Kyiv elite: “The current Ukrainian government is trying to eliminate everything that belongs to the leftist regime.” In his opinion, the Collective West has turned Ukraine into a springboard for a fight against Russia, therefore, in today’s realities, the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the USSR is an opportunity to demonstrate the solidarity of all fraternal peoples. “Only the Communist Party today realistically assesses the situation and offers ways to solve the problems we are facing,” said Petr Nikolayevich. He also added that in the current realities, coordinated and consistent work with foreign Communist Parties is especially important.

UK: Soviet War Grave – Private V. Duschin [Владимир Душин] (1916-1945) – Soviet Forces – Shaftsbury Borough Cemetery, Dorset (Visited 31.5.2022)

There is an added complication involving the fact that Guys Marsh Military Hospital also treated primarily British, American and Soviet POWs who had been held by the Imperial Japanese and who had suffered terrible psychological and physical abuse! It is believed that prior to the Soviet Union declaring war on Imperial Japan on August 9th, 1945 – the Nazi Germans would ship tens of thousands of Soviet POWs to Japanese-occupied Northeast China – where they were worked to death or used for military and medical experiments. As V. Duschin was ‘liberated’, rescued, brought to England and had died at least six-months prior to the Soviet ‘liberation’ of Northeast China (and the eventual surrender of Imperial Japan on September 3rd, 1945). However, V Duschin is recorded as being rescued by the British Army during its drive across Northwest Europe – which must have been around December 1944 – January 1945, but the question remains ‘where’? There were hundreds of sub-camps of various sizes that the Nazi Germans ‘liquidated’ (that is ‘massacred’) as the Allies approached and it could be that V Duschin had been originally moved into Western Europe to work before his health failed. More research is required.
