Yeah, sure, and Clinton was a righteous man. Tell me another story. Sheesh!
"During fierce battles on the front that stretched from the Barents Sea to Caucasus, the Soviet Union broke the backbone of the German military machine. It was on the Eastern front where the Nazis suffered three-quarters of their losses," Putin said.

So what is incorrect in the above statement?

Regardless of what you think of Stalin and the Commies, I don't understand why many people refuse to grasp the scope of operations on the eastern front.

The Soviets, for three long years almost single handedly bled the Nazis white. Even after Normandy the quantity and quality of German forces committed in the east still made the Allied offensive not much more than a side show.

seems I remember something about the US Army 8th AirForce and just a few bombing raids that took place...how many thousands of B17 air crews died? Putin's statement does have an element of truth, but it's not the whole truth...

Russia 'liberated' some countries but forgot to let the citizens of those countries have it back after the war!
