   [RT WWII documentary]

Here's the punch line:

   [23:28] Today, many among the European elites prefer to overlook the fact that back then, there was no one in Europe who could actually fight back against fascism.
   The governments of some countries endorsed Hitler, while for the others, it was a matter of days before they capitulated:

   France lasted 43 days
   Poland       36 days
   Greece       24 days
   Norway       24 days
   Belgium      18 days
   Yugoslavia   11 days
   Netherlands   5 days
   Albania       3 days
   Denmark       1 day
   Czechoslvakia - "surrendered without a fight"

   The USSR?  Fought on for FOUR years!

   [24:25] Neither the Soviet authorities, nor the people, ever dreampt about leaving their country at the mercy of fascists.
   That's why, all over Europe, there are millions of graves of Soviet soldiers.

   .. [24:55] The brunt of the suffering was borne by the Soviet Union - almost half of the deaths of World War II were suffered by the Soviet Union; both in the Red Army, and among the civilian population.  And they played a decisive role in the final victory over Nazi Germany.

Russians.  What a people.
