…. American And British Handover Of Russians And Cossacks To The Red Army.

"This is something that Britain would like buried in the ground. It is said that there were no good guys in the Second World War. The forced return of Cossacks to the Red Army by the British in 1945 only proves the point.

A bit of background. The Cossacks have always been fiercely independent. They had fought the Bolsheviks with the Whites in 1919. Many had emigrated to other countries. In 1941 when the Germans invaded Russia the Cossacks found a way to fight the Stalinist regime. They fought in the Wehrmacht against the Red Army…"

Hardly buried. While not trumpeted, this was at least mentioned frequently on at least the CBS and NBC networks throughout the 1950's, '60's and '70's. Maybe since, but I don't watch network TV much any more.

Just more clickbait. I've known about this for many years now.

Definitely not buried – as in 'covered up', but certainly studiously ignored, until recently (not the Allies finest hour)! Though since then its been a plot point in a James Bond film- how's that for popular exposure?

But you do have to admit that Sean Bean as a Cossack descendent does take some imagination. Unusually Sean Bean gets killed in this film……….just for once

Sadly that is pretty well known now especially as time went on. As we know the UK, US, etc. did make sort of "a deal with the Devil" in Joe Stalin. Geopolitics/Realpolitik can be a real Bleeped text at times … even to today. For better or worse …

Victims of Yalta caused quite a stir when published. Not hidden news at all.
