The thread title is D-Day, I suggest if you wish to start a thread about Russia in WW2 then you start one; in the meantime perhaps those that wish to share their thoughts about today's, and past events you should allow them to do so.
I think we would also do well to remember that the Russians did not liberate those countries occupied by Hitler's Germany - they were simply reoccupied by the Russians, who continued the oppression of those states.
