On this day, 74 years ago, Nazi Germany launched an unprovoked invasion of the Soviet Union, Operation Barbarossa. In the resultant war, the Great Patriotic War, some 27 to 30 million Soviet citizens died, at least 17 million of them civilians. Let us not forget them, and the terrible sacrifice they and the living made in defeating the Nazis. Let us also not forget that on this day, 3 years later, the Soviets gained a measure of vengeance by launching Operation Bagration, which smashed the once mighty Army Group Centre, which had come to within 15 miles of Moscow in 1941. Even those of us in the West should remember these, as the sacrifices of the Soviet people and military saved countless American and British and Commonwealth lives. За Родину!

Best Regards,
