WHY SO CALLED SOVIET OCCUPATION CANNOT BE EQUATED WITH NAZI INVASION
Recent and continuous effort in west and united states to revise and distort history and facts regarding then soviet union and modern Russia is one of the pressing issues in the world of history.Trying to demonize soviet union and Russia and equating it with the Nazis have become a palatable subject of political leaders and think tanks of united states and west.The history is being used to wage negative information campaign and implant mistrust,distrust,confusion,idea of confrontation in various cases. Today this article will put some light why the so called soviet occupation cannot be equated with Nazi invasion.
1) During the soviet period all regions had almost equal conditions-whether in Russia,Ukraine or Latvia.
2) Soviet govt invested heavily in all regions for universal free education and health care, housing,industry,military.
3)Benefit of natural resources were distributed among all citizens, not only among Russians.
4)Soviet union was more like a conglomerate and ideological union created by constituent states or countries having access to ruling system. Stalin was a Georgian, Khrushchev was an Ukrainian-but they could rule Russia as well as soviet union.
5) Soviet union was never established on the basis of any particular racial identity or racial supremacy. It was a manifestation of particular socio-economic ideology.
6)In soviet union all constituent countries or member states were granted almost equal stake, not like the colonial powers who maintained supremacy as rulers, performed looting and created poverty in their respective colonies.
7)Soviet union was a multi-ethnic, multicultural state not a monolithic one,minority rights were well protected with no religious persecution.
8) Soviet army was also multi-ethnic army with soldiers and commanders from all parts of the union.
9)Soviet union helped many countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America to regain and protect their independence.
10)Soviet union never imposed any personal,housing,professional tax on any of it’s citizens either in Russia or in other soviet republics.
On contrary Hitler was more destructive than constructive. He wanted to build nation on the basis of racial ideology. In the empire of Hitler, there was virtually no tolerance. Hitler had no idea to contribute to others than the germans. He wanted occupation but no discount to the people of occupied zone.In fact Hitler was never become able to give any kind of benefic socio-economic idea.The countries who have become more vocal about so called soviet occupation,they could have sided with Hitler during world war 2 instead of shouting now,if he was so good,but they took soviets as their friends.So their notion is itself self contradictory.In case of Baltic states(Lithuania,Latvia,Estonia),soviet union never destructed their prosperity but created most of the infra-structures which still benefits the.They enjoyed much higher living standard than the Russians or other soviet republics. Even if it is considered as occupation, they have to acknowledge that they enjoyed soviet natural gas and oil at free of cost for many decades. They virtually have no right to shout and worship Hitler and his Wehrmacht or 3rd Reich. To save the world, near about 30 million citizens of soviet union gave up their lives in the battle against the Nazis. Knowingly or unknowingly, people of the world especially in Asia Africa and south America liked soviet union than west or usa.In fact, the idea of social security in western capitalist world was an indirect influence of the soviets and communists. But Nazi Germany compelled renowned scientists to fly to the united states and get involved in Manhattan project giving rise to nuclear bomb which destroyed millions of Japanese at one go during world war2. These reasons are enough to say that the so called soviet occupation in no way could be compared to Nazi invasion, acknowledgement is out of question.
