Russia made it possible for the Nazis to create military power.
Russia in alliance with the Nazis started the 2nd World War.

Russia was the only one to gain enormous territory in World War II - the territory of Poland, which Russia conquered in 1939, was incorporated into the USSR after the war. In addition, Russia established its power over all the countries of Eastern Europe by forcibly establishing governments consisting of Soviet agents in these countries.
That's true. I am knowledgeable about WWII. But without the Russian blood spilt on the battlefield, now most Europeans would be speaking in German. You have to give them that at least.

To be fair, we said right off the bat that there is no evidence Russia was involved yet and earmarked suggestions that it was as "wild speculation.". It's sometimes helpful to read past the subheadline. ;)
Not a matter of reading past the subheadline. "Coincidence or Russian sabotage" is pretty explicit. If anything, it'd make the article even more misleading if its contents were to reverse the subheadline (they don't).

I don't know who's responsible for the cables, but neither does Techspot. I've been constantly hearing/reading about Russia being the mother of all evil and NATO/EU the harbingers of peace and harmony.

No need to shove it down our throats here as well. Please.

Everyone was happily allied with Germany before WW2, not just the SU. I'll admit it's quite convenient propaganda though. Half-truths are the worst. Your second affirmation (Russia + Nazis starting WW2) is beyond ridiculous - sorry.

You lack elementary historical knowledge.
"After the signing of the Molotov – Ribbentrop Pact on 23 August 1939, Germany invaded Poland on 1 September 1939, [7] [8] and the Soviet Union invaded Poland on 17 September, [7] [9] resulting in the occupation of Poland by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. [10] The first Gestapo – NKVD meeting took place in Brześć nad Bugiem (Brest) reportedly on 27 September 1939, [1] while some units of the Polish Army were still fighting (see: Invasion of Poland) resulting in mass internment of soldiers and their extrajudicial shootings on both sides of the Curzon Line. At the meeting, the German and Soviet officials reached a mutual agreement about the fate of Polish infantry soldiers captured by the Red Army. On 28 September 1939, the German – Soviet Boundary and Friendship Treaty was signed ... "

Do not forget that the Russians not only "liberated" the occupied territories, but also conquered them for the USSR. Almost all the areas they occupied became subordinate to them (for several dozen years). Personally, I am very curious about the question, if the 1st Belorussian Front had not stopped from August 1, 1944 to January 12, 1945, in anticipation of the razing of Warsaw to the ground by the Nazis, would not the whole of Europe speak Russian today? The German army was in disarray in August 1944 and used these 5 months to regroup. It is quite likely that, had it not been for this delay, the Soviet Army would have reached the Atlantic before the Western Front was formed.

Not to point any fingers but I'd sure be looking for any caviar tins or vodka bottles laying around in the area ......

Or sunken submarines.

Maybe we should line the cables with hydrophones. Or, even better, anti-sub mines.

After this of course, they claimed all the lands they fought in, and put them under the control of the USSR, Ukraine included. Why do you think the Ukranians are battling so hard to get rid of them.

You keep posting this sh!t about how Russia won WWII, but you always keep forgetting to mention "the little things", like "D Day", the battle of Normandy, and the fact the the allies bombed the German homeland into powder..

How did the Russians reward us for this? You put up the fu*king Berlin wall, while dividing Germany in half.

The most ironic part of the war in Ukraine, is the fact it has turned Russia from a major global arms dealer, into a buyer of crap drones from Iran. How the mighty have fallen.
