Russian soldiers celebrate birthday of 'comrade and friend' Hitler

Two Russian soldiers posed for a picture in front of a military van emblazoned with the letter “Z”, a symbol used for the war in Ukraine. The windscreen of the truck also bore the number 88, a white supremacist numerical code for “Heil Hitler”.

In a post yesterday on Govorit TopaZ, a pro-Kremlin Telegram channel with almost 70,000 subscribers, the soldiers talked about how they had been inspired by Nazi ethno-nationalist ideology.

~snip~

“Even though he has not been with us for a long time, his work and his words live on in our hearts and inspire us to kill Ukro-Bolshevik dirt and magnify the glory of great Russia.”

Hitler was born on April 20, 1889.

4. That's pretty bizarre, considering that Russia lost 27,000,000 people

as a direct result of Hitler in WWII.

6. Very weird.

Sadly, Russian has lost most of their generation that dealt with Stalin and WW2. Pathetic.

9. Many of those losses were due to the way Russia fights wars, where soldiers are treated

as completely expendable, and are simply thrown at the enemy en masse. They also treated their own POWs as traitors, so had no agreements with the Germans for humane treatment, and shipped the survivors straight to Siberia, where many more died.

When you have no regard for the value of human life, it pretty much guarantees huge losses. They even managed to lose around 200,000 soldiers in a few months of war with Finland.

The losses were from a combination of both Hitler and Stalin, though I know that goes against their official narrative.
