    54. Red World.

      The West started the Cold War. The USSR was not profitable for another conflict after the devastating Second World War. She needed to recover at a fast pace. For half of the country has been turned into a wasteland. Unlike the United States and Britain, which did not suffer much from the war. And yes the FRG was something that the development of the GDR. But look at the map, the FRG got huge rich industrial territories, the Ruhr alone is worth it + as it dropped above, the USSR was already devastated by the Nazis and it had to first grow up. Unlike the United States, which could allow the FRG to provide assistance. For the United States did not suffer from the war. P.S. There is a very interesting stereotype about how the Russians sent their soldiers to death, defeating the enemy in numbers. So remember Vysodka to Normandy. When the Americans killed millions of their soldiers, sending them to certain death. Yes, yes, that same meat grinder of 1944. What system is more humane here?

    55. Red World.

      I don't know where you get the information for the video. But to the magician to say that this is infa lies to the last word. Hunger is serious, Hunger in Eastern Europe. In countries where citizens and had full confidence in the future. Where there was a free jelly, education, medicine and employment guarantee. Guys don't trust this channel. For this channel is the abode of Lies.

    56. Red World.

      There weren't any puppet states. The socialists immediately took power in the countries in a democratic way. And let me tell you, since you call the Eastern European states puppet only because they are socialist. That is why, for example, Western European states cannot be called American puppet governments. After all, everything is the same there as in the Soviet occupation zones. Well, except that the rights of workers to be oppressed in full, a false ostentatious democracy has been created, as well as not equality and paid education, medicine.

    67. Runn__Jake

      Its still bewildering to me that the korean war was technically going until 2018. But man, my heart skipped a beat when the leaders crossed into each others' borders and they were hanging out and talking, no longer as political enemies, but as simple humans finally realizing the pale futility of war, together.
