Russia Celebrates It's VG Day As Russian Forces Continue To Invade Ukraine

Russians celebrate their VG Day every May 9th to mark their Soviet ancestor's capture of the Reichstag and the fall of Berlin during WW2 against the Nazis.

Many events occur in celebration of Russian VG Day including festivals, celebrations, memorials, and the iconic parade of Russian military hardware down Red Square.

The USSR, which dissolved on Boxing Day in 1991, comes back alive for a single day as era appropriate tanks, planes, weapons, uniforms, and portraits of Josef Stalin and Karl Marx strut down the Red Square as the  Russian people and their government gaze at the wall of steel.

But 2022's Russian VG Day is overshadowed by the country's invasion of Ukraine in February, with Russian president Vladimir Putin trying to boost Russian morale via the VG Day celebrations in his country.

France and the UK have criticized Putin for turning VG Day into a mockery of itself, by using it to rally the Russian people against Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin continues to hold the belief that he is liberating Russians from their “Fascist Ukrainian Overlords”, and though the annexation of Crimea in 2014 worked with this excuse because a majority of Russians in the region wanted it, it's not going to work for Ukraine as a whole or even the Donbas.

The separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk are fighting for a Russian minority despite a majority Ukrainian population in both separatist republics in the Donbas Region.

Russian state TV is running the rhetoric that their “Military Operation” in Ukraine is a new Great Patriotic War against the Ukrainian Fascists in Kiev, despite Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky being Jewish.

The Russians have deflected this obvious evidence by claiming that former German chancellor and Dictator of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler, was the decedent of Jews.

This caused many Jewish Russians to start protesting, and Synagogues in Russia have been raided by local authorities.

US president Joe Biden also criticized the Russian rhetoric by stating that: “Not only was Adolf Hitler not Jewish, he's not even German.

He's Austrian, a giant misconception people make about the worlds most evil man”.
