Le 6 août 1945, les Etats-Unis lâchent la première bombe atomique de l'Histoire sur la ville d'Hiroshima. Une semaine plus tard, Staline donne l'ordre de mettre au point une arme plus redoutable encore que celle de l'ennemi, pour que l'Union Soviétique devienne la première puissance mondiale. Dans ce nouvel épisode du podcast "Au cœur de l'Histoire", Clémentine Portier-Kaltenbach décrit la mission confiée aux chercheurs envoyés au Kazakhstan, dont fait partie un certain Andreï Sakharov… futur Prix Nobel de la Paix.

Wir sind zurück in den wilden Zeiten Russlands. Ob diese jemals vorbei gingen oder heute noch andauern, bleibt abzuwarten. Heute beschäftigen sich unsere Redakteure Michi und Moritz allerdings mit den sowjetischen Zeiten um und nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg. Dabei steht niemand geringeres als Georgi Maximilianowitsch Malenkow im Rampenlicht. Dieser folgte nämlich Josef Stalin quasi als Chef der Sowjetunion nach. Wie es dazu gekommen ist, wie lange er sich auf dem Posten halten konnte und was ihm sein Technikstudium in späteren Jahren noch gebracht hat, erfahrt Ihr in der Folge.

Evgenia and I recorded a late night episode on the May 9th Victory Day celebration and parade that took place last week in Russia. Unfortunately, not much to celebrate this year.—Yasha LevineA few notes.Evgenia wrote a great essay on the degraded political culture of Putin’s Russia that talks about Putin’s parasitic weaponization of WWII memory. Last week, I wrote about how Victory Day is being used to shore up support for the war in Ukraine.We mention Victor Suvorov’s revisionist history that blames WWII on Stalin — a ridiculous theory that’s very popular with Russian liberals and Soviet immigrants, but also very popular in America and Europe. There’s a great book-length rebuttal by Gabriel Gorodetsky. Suvorov’s revisionist history is thematically connected to the idea of a “Double Genocide” that’s been pushed for years and which is the law of the land in many Eastern European countries now: the idea the Soviets were as bad as the Nazis, if not worse. Double Genocide is basically a new kind of Holocaust denial and popular historians like Timothy Snyder basically push the idea on their unsuspecting readers. We mention Aleksei Balabanov’s Brat film series. Here’s a link — it has both films cut up into a few episodes and has passible English subtitles. And here’s a link to a video of the full parade. Credit to Andreu Movtxan for making me think of “red-washing” as a label for what’s happening here. Want to hear more? Check out previous episodes of The Russians. PS: Here’s a nice slideshow of the parade for you. Gotta say the woman to Putin’s right — a survivor of the Great Patriotic War — does not look very happy to be there. This is a public episode.

Über dreissig Jahre lang herrschte Josef Stalin über die Sowjetunion. Er ist verantwortlich für Millionen Tote. In seinem Lager-System, dem Gulag, liess er selbst engste Vertraute ermorden. Doch nun, unter Wladimir Putin, erlebt Stalin ein Revival und sein Regime eine Umdeutung. Putin, der selbst gerne Aufsätze über die russische Geschichte schreibt, sieht in Stalin keinen Massenmörder, sondern einen entschlossenen Staatsmann, der die Sowjetunion einte und im Zweiten Weltkrieg den Faschismus in Hitler-Deutschland besiegte. Die Schattenseiten des Stalinismus blendet Putin dabei aus. Zum Beispiel, dass es unter Stalin in Russland Millionen Zwangsarbeiter gab, die im Zuge der Industrialisierung der Sowjetunion ermordet wurden. Mit seinem neuen Stalin-Kult will Putin den Rückhalt für seine Politik in der Bevölkerung stärken: Inzwischen ist es fester Bestandteil der russischen Propaganda zu behaupten, dass Russland unter Putin gegen den Faschismus in der Ukraine kämpfe, wie einst die Sowjetunion unter Stalin gegen Nazi-Deutschland. Trotzdem ist der neue Stalin-Kult nicht einfach das Wiederaufleben des Stalinismus. Beobachterinnen und Beobachter sehen darin vielmehr eine Art postimperiales Syndrom, welches Russland immer stärker im Griff hat und zunehmend die öffentliche Meinung bestimmt.

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, inflation hurts everyone; some faster and some slower. At a local diner, waitresses can't afford to fill their tanks anymore and the Diner owners can't stock all of the goods and ingredients. Meanwhile, all President Biden does is blame Russia and manufacturers like the baby formula companies. Abbot laboratories say it will take 6-8 weeks to rebound from a recall that they claim was not linked to recent infant fatalities and sicknesses. Rep Kat Cammack has shared photos of pallets of baby formula stored for child migrants at a closed border facility. Congress is waiting two weeks to conduct a hearing which puts the lives of children in jeopardy. Then, Congressman Jim Jordan joins the show to explain how Democrats on the January 6th Select Committee have threatened to subpoena him but have failed to serve him. Jordan also discussed how a concerned mom was investigated by DHS and labeled a domestic terrorist. Later, various groups were competing for power in Russian history. Leon Trotsky was assassinated by Joseph Stalin's hitman. Marxism is an ambiguous ideology. Even Lenin was known for saying that Marx couldn't tell them how to govern. Lenin also called on Trotsky to stop Stalin. Similarly, the Democrat Party seeks a permanent counter-revolution in the United States. Therefore Democrats describe their violent war on civil society as 'mostly peaceful.' Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Finland is a country that knows a thing or two about Russian aggression. After all, the Finns fought a war against Russia in 1940, as Joseph Stalin tried to pull off a land grab in Finland, in the midst of World War II raging in Europe. And yet, up until this year Finland has maintained a more-or-less neutral position in international affairs and had resisted joining NATO. Russia's war in Ukraine quickly changed all of that, with the Finns looking set to formally apply for NATO membership in the coming weeks ... on the way to becoming part of the Alliance by the end of this year. Not surprisingly, the Russians are not thrilled about that prospect. Russia is vowing to take ‘retaliatory steps' after Finland announced it will move to join NATO without delay; Sweden working on a similar move. It's just some of the unintended consequences of Vladimir Putin's move to seize Ukraine ... as he's managed to increase unity and cooperation among NATO countries to their high levels, perhaps since the Cold War.

Lea Roback was a feminist and labor activist who was raised in a large Jewish family in Quebec, Canada. In the novel Lea (Linda Leith Publishing, 2022), Ariela Freedman describes a strong, vibrant woman whose life spanned the 20th century. Lea Roback spoke four languages, and wherever she was in the world, she fought for workers' rights, votes for women, access to contraception and abortion, pay equity, social housing and free education. She was often in the center of world history—in Berlin during the rise of Nazism and Moscow during Stalin's reign of terror. She was intelligent, passionate about equality, and ultimately worked in factories as a union organizer. The real Lea is remembered by the work of the Lea Roback Foundation, which offers scholarships to women, the Lea Roback Research Centre, which focuses on inequality and public health; and the Maison Parent-Roback, which links community organizations that advance women's rights and social justice causes. Ariela Freedman was born in Brooklyn and has lived in Jerusalem, New York, Calgary, London, and Montreal.

De afgelopen week zijn zeker 5000 inwoners van Marioepol afgevoerd naar Rusland via door de Russen opengestelde vluchtroutes. En zij zijn niet de eerste Oekraïners die in het land van de vijand terecht komen. Sinds het begin van de oorlog is dat al zeker een half miljoen van hun landgenoten overkomen. Volgens de Russen ‘op de vlucht voor geweld', volgens Oekraïne zijn ze ‘gedeporteerd', naar vaak verre uithoeken, tot in Siberië aan toe. Als dat het geval is, dan is dat niet voor het eerst in de geschiedenis. Ook tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog werd een deel van de Oekraïense bevolking gedeporteerd: de Krim-Tataren, door Stalin bestempeld als ‘nazistische verraders', net zoals Poetin nu verwijst naar de Oekraïners. Historicus Ivo van de Wijdeven schreef daar een artikel over voor de site van het Historisch Nieuwsblad en hij is te gast om te praten over de deportaties.

On Friday's Mark Levin Show, former Defense Secretary Mark Esper has written a 'tell-all' book that is essentially a written account of his quasi-coup on President Trump. The book's excerpts were published by The New York Times as factual accounts and depicted Trump's policies as reckless. Esper publicly criticized Trump's inquiry to use the Insurrection Act of 1807 to quell violence during the riots in the summer of 2020. This type of usurpation and sabotage prevents any form of confidentiality from existing in White House communications. This is the same type of damage done by the leaker of Justice Alito's draft of the Roe V. Wade opinion. Our government cannot function when one's own subordinates are undermining any type of confidential conversation one might have. This is why Congress passed the Freedom of Information Act and exempted themselves from it. Then, to debate about abortion isn't about a women's body, it's about a human being an innocent, defenseless baby who cannot benefit from all of our laws against torture, battery, and assault. Yet, Sen Elizabeth Warren says there must be no limitation on abortion. This isn't about religion, it's about logic and having a conscience. Afterward, John O'Neill Author of "The Dancer and the Devil: Stalin, Pavlova, and the Road to the Great Pandemic" joins the show to discuss his new book. The book chronicles how Stalin started by poisoning people with bioweapons and how China followed suit in 1977 to what we saw in Wuhan in 2019.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Lea Ypi grew up in one of the most isolated countries on earth, a place where communist ideals had officially replaced religion. Albania, the last Stalinist outpost in Europe, was almost impossible to visit, almost impossible to leave. It was a place of queuing and scarcity, of political executions and secret police. To Lea, it was home. People were equal, neighbours helped each other, and children were expected to build a better world. There was community and hope. Then, in December 1990, everything changed. The statues of Stalin and Hoxha were toppled. Almost overnight, people could vote freely, wear what they liked and worship as they wished. There was no longer anything to fear from prying ears. But factories shut, jobs disappeared and thousands fled to Italy on crowded ships, only to be sent back. Predatory pyramid schemes eventually bankrupted the country, leading to violent conflict. As one generation's aspirations became another's disillusionment, and as her own family's secrets were revealed, Lea found herself questioning what freedom really meant. Free: A Child and a Country at the End of History (Norton, 2021) is an engrossing memoir of coming of age amid political upheaval. With acute insight and wit, Lea Ypi traces the limits of progress and the burden of the past, illuminating the spaces between ideals and reality, and the hopes and fears of people pulled up by the sweep of history.

The End of Neutrality? Finland's NATO Bid

WorldAffairs

For the last century, Finland has walked a diplomatic tightrope between East and West. A former Russian imperial holding and Soviet target, the independent nordic nation boasts a free market economy, EU membership, and regional defense partnerships. Yet, Finland has previously stopped short of formally joining NATO, the West's major military alliance–maintaining a pragmatic policy of forced neutrality along its 800-mile border with Russia. That is, until Russia's recent invasion of Ukraine. How does a country survive the threat of Russian aggression? Ray Suarez talks with Henri Vanhanen, advisor to the Finnish National Coalition Party, about his country's recent pivot toward NATO membership–both in parliament and the polls–and what it could mean for the future of international security.  Featuring: Henri Vanhanen, foreign policy and EU advisor for the Finland National Coalition Party Ray Suarez, co-host of WorldAffairs Finland 101, by Ray Suarez Maybe you've noticed how often Finland comes up during the Ukraine coverage, and wondered why? Here's a quick little history…a thousand pages in a few seconds. For centuries, the Finns have had to thread their way, as a people, through the conflicts of other big powers in their part of the world. Ethnically and linguistically distinct…they're not their Swedish neighbors to the west or their Russian neighbors to the east…but they had to fend off both to remain themselves. For centuries Finland was fought for, or fought over, by Russians and Swedes. As the 20thcentury began, Finland was part of Czarist Russia…then the Czar abdicated and the Empire collapsed. The Finns flirted with Communism, and with monarchy, before becoming a republic with a new president in 1919. Josef Stalin wanted Finland back for the USSR. The Soviets invaded, shortly after the Nazis bulldozed Poland in 1939. The Finns fought back ferociously. They inflicted heavy casualties. The Soviets eventually recognized Finland's independence, signed a peace treaty, and permanently seized about a tenth of Finland's territory, incorporating it into the USSR. The Finns would remain independent, somewhat free of Soviet domination after the Second World War, but that freedom came at a cost. Finland gave up more territory, and population, and diplomatic freedom of movement. The country lived in a gray area between east and west during the Cold War. Its status even got a dismissive name…Finlandization, used to describe a forced neutrality, an expensive freedom.  Finland had a market economy, democratically elected governments, freedom of speech, and growing prosperity….all the while staying aloof from the expanding European Union, and certainly NATO, the western military alliance. When the Soviet Union collapsed, much as Czarist Russia did, Finland had an escape hatch… denounced its earlier treaties, joined the EU, adopted the Euro, but remained outside NATO, sharing an eight hundred mile border with the Russian Federation.

China is often accused of breaking international rules and norms. Just last week at Mansion House, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said: 'Countries must play by the rules. And that includes China'. So what are its transgressions, and what are its goals for the international system? My guests and I try to answer this question in this episode through looking at China's attitude to and involvement in international organisations, past and present. Professor Rana Mitter, a historian at the University of Oxford and author of  China's Good War , points out that there's a fundamental difference in China's approach compared to, say, Russia. 'Russia perceives itself as, essentially, a country that is really at the end of its tether in terms of the international system. Whereas China still sees plenty of opportunities to grow and expand its status'. To that end, China is actually a member of dozens of international organisations, most notably – as we discuss in the episode – sitting on the United Nations Security Council, which gives it veto power on UN resolutions (though, Yu Jie, senior  research fellow at Chatham House, points out that China is most often found abstaining rather than vetoing). It wants a seat at the table,  but it also frequently accuses our existing set of international norms and rules as designed by the West. To begin with, then, China is seeking to rewrite the rules in its own favour – Jie gives the example of China's ongoing campaign to increase its voting share in the IMF, on the basis of its huge economy. 'It's not exactly overthrowing the existing international order wholesale, but choosing very carefully which parts China wants to change.' This multilateral engagement has a historical basis. Nationalist China was keen to be seen as an equal and respected partner in the international community, and Rana points out – something I'd never thought of before – that China after the second world war 'was a very very unusual sort of state… Because it was the only state, pretty much, in Asia, that was essentially sovereign… Don't forget that 1945 meant liberation for lots of European peoples, but for lots of Asian peoples – Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaya, wherever you want to name – they basically went back into European colonialism'. This (together with its then-alliance with the United States)  gave the Republic of China a front row seat in the creation of the United Nations and, before then, the League of Nations. It didn't take long for Communist China to start building links with the rest of the world, either. Mao  'had not spent decades fighting out in the caves and fields of China to simply become a plaything of Stalin', Rana points out, making its multilateral relations outside of the alliance with the USSR vitally important. After it split with Moscow, and before the rapprochement with the US, the Sixties was a time of unwanted isolationism,  ' which is well within living memory of many of the top leaders', says Rana, adding more to its present day desire to have as much sway as possible in the world, which still comes through international organisations. Finally, my guests bust the myth – often propagated by Beijing – that China had no role in the writing of today's international laws, pointing out that Chinese and other non-western thinkers played a major role in the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights . What's more, do western ideas have no place in guiding and governing China? After all, Karl Marx was certainly not Chinese, and that doesn't seem to bother his Chinese Communist believers.

Stalin, the 'Man of Steel' and supreme ruler of the Soviet Union for a quarter of a century, is readily associated with his ruthless regime inside the USSR, and with his fierce opposition to Western Europe and the United States during the Cold War. Commonly, however, this is set aside for narratives of the Second World War, from which he emerged victorious with his Western Allies. Sean McMeekin has been taking a closer look at this. Was Stalin partially to blame for the beginning of the Second World War? And did the USSR emerge in a better position than both its opposition and its allies?As the author of Stalin's War, historian and author Sean tells James more about Stalin, from his ruthless creation of an empire to the ramifications of his regime during World War 2.For more Warfare content, subscribe to our Warfare newsletter here.

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, the progressive movement is the application of Marxism to American society. Progressive intellectual John Dewey once wrote at great length about how well Stalin was doing with government-run education. Dewy felt that teaching subjects without a social purpose uniting children in support of their government. Dewey enjoyed the support of Democrats and Republicans like Teddy Roosevelt. The goal of the progressives has always been to control what is taught in the classroom and this is why small children are being indoctrinated against capitalism and success and to reject the family structure they come from. This is precisely what is taking place in our country today. Then, President Biden says that when your kids are in the classroom they're no longer your kids, in effect, suggesting that they now belong to the government and the teacher's union. Millions from the American Rescue plan went to schools for Critical Race Theory training in the name of the COVID pandemic. Kudos to all the parents and other citizens standing up against tyranny. Later, Sec. Mayorkas has proposed a 'disinformation governance board' at the Dept. of Homeland Security. All members of the free press should object to the creation of a government ministry of truth that decides what is true and what is false. All of this while the border remains open, and the economy shrinks by 1.4%. Afterward, filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza joins the show to discuss his latest film 2000 Mules which chronicles the actions of ballot mules delivering harvested ballots to COVID ballot boxes during the 2020 election.

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, a cover-up and obstruction is going on right now to protect President Joe Biden. How can the Biden Crime Family get away with no Special Counsel looking into everything they are accused of and involved with? Yet, Donald Trump and his family have been investigated at every level. Trump is the most investigated man alive and has been found to be innocent each time he is accused and trashed in the media. However, U.S Attorney General Merrick Garland has no intention of appointing a Special Counsel to investigate President Biden's involvement. Then, a long list of U.S presidents knew that many former Soviet States was attacked and devoured by Stalin years ago. Yet, the Putin wing of the Republican Party asininely argues that their once shared heritage as one-time Soviets somehow makes a difference when they are invaded and occupied by modern-day Russia. It does not! Later, two former Trump national security professionals called Putin's attack on Ukraine unjustifiable. They also said that it's nonsense to think Russia invaded to "de-Nazify." America First Policy Institute's Fred Fleitz and Gen. Keith Kellogg both support former President Trump's position that Ukraine should be armed by the US to stabilize the region and end this war. Afterward, useful idiots are aiding and abetting the counter-revolutionaries of this new ideological American Revolution. American Marxists have infected every institution of our nation's society.
