Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The role of the USSR in the defeat of Nazism has almost been written out of popular "Western" history, as has the very real and justifiable Russian fear of invasion by the West after WW2 - much more real than the threat of Soviet Nuclear attack subsequently.  But history is written by the victors, and aren't we all capitalists now - eh - well perhaps for a short time until recently.  Where did I hear the phrase to socialise the commanding heights of the economy first?
