Could you please explain how you know so much about it all?

If they did not oppose nazi, and made an attempt to liberate themselves. It would be naive to account for flowers from the eastern “liberators”. After their towns and villages burned, babies killed , wives raped and sent to concentration camps … Dont forget that especial cruelty Germans fought on eastern front.

Only in Belarussian villages (now Belarus’) Germans murdered thousands of people; women, children, elderly by locking them in barns and burning them alive. Hundreds of cities were subjected to carpet bombings wiping out all living from the face of the earth. Two million people died of starvation in the 2 years of blockade of Leningrad. Thousands of civilians fleeing from charging German troops were killed by air and tank raids. Thousands were raped, killed, mutilated, starved to death by assaulting German troops. This list can go on and on. There are multiple diaries taken from the killed German soldiers boasting of the number of civilians they have murdered and the cruelty they used while doing that. So what did you expect from the Russian soldiers who purged the enemy back from their land into Europe seeing death and devastation all around them? If you are objective you would say they were humane. I don’t know any other nation who could forgive as much as Russians did for what was done to them. Over 27 million of soviet people were killed and died during the world war two. More than a half of them were innocent civilians.
