As United States President Ronald Reagan tours Red Square and meets Soviet citizens with Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev while taking a goodwill diplomatic visit to Moscow, the capital city of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, a military aide to President Reagan named Lieutenant Commander Woody Lee is shown in this photograph as he stands with his wrist cuffed to what is essentially the most powerful tool that can possibly be used by a world leader: the black briefcase codenamed "Football" that can be used to initiate an offensive American nuclear strike anywhere on our planet. Image taken on Red Square, in Moscow, in the Russian SFSR of the Soviet Union. June 1st 1988. This photograph is possibly one of the most literal examples of: "walk softly and carry a big stick" in history, as if a nuclear strike was ever authorized from the Football during the Cold War then Moscow would easily have been one of the first and most important targets of American atomic power. And there the Football sits, resting right in the middle of that target itself.

“A terrible ghost” – anti-Nazi propaganda from the Soviet Union, 1944. The poster shows Hitler menaced by the ghosts of the men who died at Stalingrad. The piece was published by TASS (the Soviets’ official news agency) and included a poem: ‘Hitler can’t sleep. Through the darkness / A skeleton appears to him. / Goosebumps rise on his skin. / “Remember, Hitler, Stalingrad! / We died there a year ago / Soon the same will happen to you!”’

On August 16, 1920, the Polish Army, led by Marshal Jozef Pilsudski, launched its counter attack against the Red Army, which completely turned the tides of the Polish - Soviet war, and resulted in the complete annihilation of all the Soviet forces occupying Poland.

The fact that Marshal Pilsudski and the Polish army not only stopped but effectively wiped out the invading one million strong Red Army, made Lenin and Trotsky change their minds and scrub out any future plans they had about trying to take over Europe through military means and turn it into a Communist dictatorship, as was their original plan.

The whole course of European history, and in fact that of world History, might have looked very different if Poland, Józef Pilsudski and the Polish army had failed to defeat and stop the Red Army's invasion into Poland and subsequently into Europe.

This photo taken from a Soviet Air Force plane shows the mushroom cloud of the gargantuan "Tzar Bomba": the largest and most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated by mankind. Image taken near Severny Island, in the far northern Russian SFSR of the Soviet Union. October 30th 1961. This was bar none the single most powerful man made explosion ever made in the history of our species, and it had a yield of an astounding fifty magatons. The bomb was equivalent to 1,570 times the combined energy of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, a full ten times the combined energy of all conventional explosives used in the entirety of World War II, and about a quarter of the estimated yield of the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa. The bomb was released with a parachute, which gave enough time for the modified Russian Tu-95V plane that dropped it to get twenty-eight miles from the detonation site. Despite that, when the explosion happened the plane was still forced to drop a full one kilometer in the sky due to the powerful shock wave, although it was able to safely land later. The mushroom cloud was forty miles high, about seven times the height of Mount Everest. All stone and wooden buildings in the village of Severny, which was thirty-four miles away from ground zero, were completely destroyed. Windows, doors and rooftops were damaged hundreds of kilometers away, and a thermal pulse could be felt as far as 170 miles. Third degree burns could have been caused if you were only sixty-two miles away, and some windowpanes were broken at a remarkable 560 full miles from the detonation. Sensors even managed to still identify the shock wave of the explosion even after its third trip around the world! CONTINUED BELOW ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Today In History 1961, soldiers of East Germany begin laying bricks for the foundation of what would become the Berlin Wall. The wall would serve as a separation line between Soviet-controlled communist East Berlin and democratic West Berlin. After the German defeat in 1945, Germany was split between the Soviets, Americans, British and French. Although the capital city of Berlin was in the Soviet zone of occupation, the city itself was also split. The conditions in East Berlin were poor, and many people defected, up to 1,000 East Berliners were leaving a day. For the next 12 years, people would migrate in mass until finally in August 1961, the Communist leader of East Germany, Walter Ulbricht, received permission to begin sealing off access from East to West Berlin. Soldiers immediately began building, laying more than 100 miles of barbed wire along the border. The wire would ultimately be replaced with something more robust: a six-foot-high, 96-mile-long wall of concrete blocks. The wall was complete with guard towers, machine gun posts, and searchlights. East German officers known as Volkspolizei (“Volpos”) patrolled the Berlin Wall day and night in search of any defectors, their orders simple: Shoot to Kill. The next day, many east berlin families woke up separated from relatives in West Berlin. The west Berlin mayor, Willi Brandt, criticized Western democracies, for failing to take a stand against it. President John F. Kennedy would later respond publicly that the United States could only help West Berliners and West Germans, and that any kind of action on behalf of East Germans would only result in failure. It would be 28 years later that the two Berlins would reunite when fueled by the decline of the Soviet Union masses people from both Berlins gathered at the Berlin Wall and began to climb over and dismantle it. As this symbol of repression was destroyed, East and West Germany became one nation again, signing a formal treaty of unification on October 3, 1990. #todayinhistory #thisdayinhistory #onthisdayinhistory #germany #germanhistory #berlin #berlinhistory #ussr #soviethistory #berlinwall #coldwar Sh

Caught in front the restored 1930s building of the newspaper Izvestiya (“News”), the main mouthpiece of the Soviet government. The other main newspaper at the time was Pravda (“Truth”), the newspaper of the Communist party. Somewhat contentious was the restoration of the original text on the facade, informing people that the news is that of the Central Executive Committee and All-Union Central Executive Commitee of the USSR (ЦИК и ВЦИК СССР). #moscowgram #moscowarchitecture #soviethistory

Instagram is all about pretty pictures and perfect lives, but unfortunately real life is far from perfect. We visited this mass grave in the vicinity of Yekaterinburg, where 19,400 people were killed by the regime between 1930s and the death of Stalin in 1953. In the 80s, a group of workers laying down pipes discovered the remains, and a painstakingly long task was then carried out to identify the dead using the DNA analysis, whose names are now immortalized on the numerous plaques around the site. The monument in the first picture is by the famous Russian-American sculptor Ernst Neizvestny 💔💔💔 красивые картинки в инста имеют мало что общего с настоящей жизнью. Посетили массовое захоронение вблизи Екатеринбурга, где в период с 1930-х годов по 1953 год, год смерти Сталина, было убито 19,400 человек. В 80-е года группа рабочих, прокладывающая трубы, случайно обнаружила останки, после чего по экспертизе ДНК были идентифицированы убитые, имена которых сейчас увековечены на многочисленных табличках. Памятник (фото 1) - работа выдающегося русско-американского скульптора Эрнста Неизвестного 💔💔💔 #россия #екатеринбург #транссибирскаямагистраль #транссибирскийэкпресс #путешествие #история #российскаяистория #советскаяистория #поезд #пороссии #russia #yekaterinburg #history #soviethistory #russianhistory #train #transdiberiandiaries #пороссиинапоезде #acrossrussia #travelling #travelgram #travel

Today In History 1945, The Soviet Union officially declares war on Japan sending over a million soldiers into Japanese-occupied Manchuria, northeastern China, facing a much smaller 700,000 strong Japanese army. The dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima by the Americans did not convince Japan into unconditional surrender. Instead, Half of the Japanese inner Cabinet called the Supreme War Direction Council, refused to surrender unless guarantees about Japan’s future, especially regarding the position of emperor Hirohito, were given by the Allies. The Japanese government had censored all information about the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Therefore, the only Japanese civilians who knew about what happened at Hiroshima were either dead or suffering terribly. On the other side, Japan had not been too worried about the Soviet Union, so busy with the Germans on the Eastern front. But the Soviets surprised them with their invasion of Manchuria, an assault so intense that of the 850 Japanese soldiers engaged at Pingyanchen, 650 were killed or wounded within the first two days of fighting. This sudden attack surprised Japanese councilmen, and Emperor Hirohito began to plead to reconsider surrender, The recalcitrant members would finally agree on August 15 to an unconditional surrender to the Allies. #todayinhistory #thisdayinhistory #onthisdayinhistory #history #unitedwarfronts #hirohito #japan #ussr #america #american #japanese #russian #soviet #sovietunion #soviethistory #russianhistory #americanhistory #japanesehistory #emperor #china #chinese #chinesehistory #manchuria #Pingyanchen #Nagasaki #hiroshima #atomicbomb

Today we recieved a new Soviet Army publication dealing with the proper wearing of orders and medals. Published in 1948, this 32 page manual gives the proper order of precedence that orders and medals are to be worn. Though small, it is highly informative and gives an official record of regulations regarding military decorations.

《IS 7》
The IS-7 starting life under the project title of Object 260 followed on from the ill-fated IS-5 and IS-6 With these failures, the request was still standing for the USSR’s next heavy tank. The IS-7 was the brain-child of the Soviet tank designer Nikolai Fedorovich Shashmurin. As well as having a hand in the design of the rather successful IS-2 which would serve well in the later years of World War II, Shashmurin also drew up plans for the ill-fated KV-4 project, which never came to fruition. The IS-7 would be Shashmurin’s crowning glory and could be considered the zenith of the Iosif Stalin heavy tanks. At the time of its conception, it was one of the most technologically advanced heavy tanks in the world, and one of the most heavily armored.

Today In History 1945, the third and final meeting of the "Big Three," the Potsdam Conference comes to a heated end. The third meeting of World War two between the three significant powers, The Soviet Union represented by Joseph Stalin, Britain by Winston Churchill, and the United States by President Harry S. Truman, would take a turn for the worst over the two weeks in which it happened. This was Truman’s first Big Three meeting. The most pressing issue discussed at the meeting was the post-war fate of Germany. All three countries had divided opinions. The Soviets wanted a unified Germany, but they also insisted that Germany be completely disarmed. The British wanted a united Germany with the same restrictions and regulations as other countries. Truman feared that either option gave the Soviets too much power as he believed that a strong Germany would be the only obstacle in the way of total Soviet domination of Europe. In the end, the Big Three agreed to divide Germany into three zones of occupation (one for each nation) and to defer discussions of German reunification until a later date. Another issue brought into the meeting was the use of Nuclear warfare. Truman casually mentioned to Stalin that America was now in possession of a weapon of monstrously destructive force. However, the response in return was not what he expected; the Soviet leader merely responded that he hoped the United States would use it to bring the war with Japan to a speedy end. The conference ended on a somber note as suspicions and tensions arose especially between Stalin and Truman. As for Churchill, he was not present for the closing ceremonies as His party lost in the elections in England and Clement Attlee replaced him. All these shows of power between the Soviets and Americans would set the bases for what would become the Cold War. #todayinhistory #thisdayinhistory #onthisdayinhistory #history #unitedwarfronts #churchill #stalin #truman #potsdam #coldwar #ww2 #worldwar2 #germany #germanhistory #berlinwall #soviet #ussr #america #unitedkingdom #soviethistory #russia #russianhistory #americanhistory #britishhistory #1945
