The Red Army bled white the Nazis. By the time of Overlord the Germany army was a shell of its former self. A memorial can recognize Soviet pilots without glorifying the Communist ideology. Not their fault their leadership was so awful.

This sounds like an innocent enough account of what went down.

But it's not.

And Stalin started World War II with Hitler. It is legacy upon which to look with shame and sobriety. NOT glorification.

Monuments to the Red Army don’t belong on American soil.

The Russian people were not evil. Their overlords were evil. The Russian people were the victims of communism.

The average Russian soldier was like all soldiers the world over. They just wanted to survive and go home to their families.
