USSR’s role in WW2: Americans give RT their best guesses

Among the countries that fought Nazi Germany in WWII, the Soviet Union paid the highest price and was key to defeating Hitler. However, as RT’s Caleb Maupin found out, this is far from common knowledge in the West.

  1. Yes the Russians did the brunt of the fighting against the Nazis and suffered very much. No doubt. And yes they took Berlin on their own because their allies, the U.S. and Britain acquiesced to Stalin's demand. Remember RT there was also an enemy in Japan. But you knew that. And you also know for most of WW II the Soviet Union had a non-aggression agreement with Japan until 10 days before Japan's surrender. Every allied contributed to the defeat of the Axis. It's one thing to set history right. Quite another to try and rewrite history.

  2. The usa were the key to victory in ww2. The ussr did lost more men, but thats not a fact to brag about, they had horrible tactics with no regard to human life and won by numbers. The allies played chess and have seen extremely gruesome fights. They practically steamrolled trough europe, weakening the nazis so much that the soviet russians could get the upper hand vs them too. They were getting slaughtered, the nazis had invaded russian land of 2x the size of france. If not for allied supplies to Russia and the fight of the allies, they would have been siccesfully invaded

  3. Well I’m happy to know that Australia was one of the first to declare war on Germany and played its part in helping out the Allies. Even in WW1 as well. But of course we aren’t even mentioned much because our military was small compared to most

  4. We should feel sorry for the american people. Their government keeps them dumb purposefully, but yeah, I mean it is capitalism. You russians should restore the soviet union, you would live way better with socialism

  5. Все это объяснимо. Американец четко в конце сказал, что их учили по-другому. Вот поэтому жители США и уверены в том, что они победили в войне. Хотя никто в реальности на момент 1945 года не оспаривал силу и мощь Советского Союза и его основной вклад в победу над гитлеровской Германией. Весь мир знает, какие из американцев воины. Ну, кроме самих американцев, конечно. Они только фильмы о себе умеют снимать. А подвиг наших предков им никогда не повторить. Характера нет.
