You tell facts - that's very important, I will never lie to you guys.
You are not lying just omitting some important facts.
What do you understand as slowed down process of dissolution on houses of prisoners of war? In fact, execution of almost 22 000 people is some kind of terminal slow down...
I just must say this - it was the Germans.
Only if you promise to read explanations and think about them. Without old-fashioned stereotypes, using only logic and common sense.
Sure, I am dying of curiosity.
First thing that you need to remember when you reading something about talvisota it's why there wasn't communistic party in Finland. Because most of reds was killed or prisoned in early 20th and red parties was just illegal (Another side of coin that communists parties was in most cases was under control of Comintern and that guys was freaking red Al-Qaeda). Finland was hostile to USSR. It's historical fact. We and Finland was like US and Cuba. Only we had ground border. Now watch and think what any different country did in our place.
1) Government of your nearest neighbor - your enemy
2) They can destroy your main industrial center and port by artillery without crossing their own borders.
3) They negotiate with German (who build their air force) and Japan. Japan is enemy of USSR, Germany is head of Anti-Comintern Pact. You can call it Russian paranoia, but
Colonel P. Faymonville, the United States military attache in
to Washington on September 23, 1937: "The Soviet Union's most urgent
problem is to prepare to repel a simultaneous attack by Japan in the
Gennany, together with Finland, in the West."
4) 1 September 1939 race between Reich and Union began.
5) 13 September - France forces retreat from German territory to Maginot Line
6) 17 September - RKKA started Polish campaign
7) 28 September - corresponding agreement between SU and Estonia. Not a single political claim was made.
8) 5 October - same with Latvia again - no political claims. Same day we asked Finns about their position.
9) 10 October -Lithuania joined to Union deck.
10) 12 October - Finland started mobilization. Not so long time ago it was enough for declaration of war.
11) 13 November - Finn delegation leaved Moscow. After they cross border soviet border guards was fired by finns.
What followed next you know. 28 November non-agression pact was denounced by SU. That was in fact declaration of war. 30 November troops crossed border. Germans asked Finnish government to give up. Army asked Finnish government to give up. Poland experience asked Finnish government to give up - Brits and French will not come to help. But Finns government didn't listen. Tell me where was our fault? What we did wrong? What should we did?
