STALIN line in Minsk | former USSR border | Soviet military


Hello everyone. We have arrived to the Stalin’s line today. And I’m going to show you around, and it’s going to be in Russian. So use English or Russian subtitles. Here we go! Stalin’s line is a system of fortifications… Oh there’s my shadow! … This is a system of military fortifications until 1939. Here was the border of the Soviet Union. Actually this place was never officially called “Stalin’s line”. This name was used only in German propaganda. We’re going to the machine gun pillbox. Everything’s covered in snow. Although spring will come soon. Here’s the armaments exhibition. This is a surface-to-air missile system S-125M. Rockets. Radio systems. It’s so slippery to walk. We’re hardly walking on the ice. Here’s the aviation exhibition. Roma is going and watching the planes. So difficult to film against the sun. Here’s a helicopter. Roma: Red army…
I: What about Red Army? Roma: the plane’s name
I: no. Roma: I saw one in a commercial. In the commercial did you see this plane? Ok… Well, this is a helicopter. And tanks of course. Here, for example, is a 1945 year tank IS-3. We’ve bought a book here. Great Patriotic War. Encyclopedia. And the author… wait… The author signed it for Roma for memory. and gave us his autograph. And here you can shoot. There are the targets, you see? German tank. And some soldiers in the Wehrmacht uniform. And of course we need to go and have some lunch in a local cafe. Ordered borsch. Roma, stop fooling around. Red borsch and bread. Soldier porridge. With pickled cucumbers. It’s very yummy. Yummy? Yes. And why eating with your hands? So that was it. I hope you enjoyed. And if you have any questions, leave them below this video. I’ll try to answer. And I hope to see you next time. Bye-bye!

  10. I became a big fan of Mr. Roma in the video inside the car when you saw him fiddling with the lamp and you asked him, "Roma, shto delaesh? (Roma, what are you doing)?" and he responded with that international child's guilt response of "Ya? (Who me?)" Such a cool little kid!

  11. No questions! But i must say! Every video you post shows more and more that russians are a great and wonderful people. Beautiful i might add, but over all in my opinion. Nothing will help show the people of America that there is nothing to fear, more than the videos you and every one else make about the russian way of life. I understand that generationally fear can set in and be amplified due to decisions that were made on both sides. You prove and validate the love i have for Russians over all. Not to go to over the top or get to excistential about life. But good job! Im proud to be a subscriber. 😃

    Was your dad a Propaganda Minister for USSR?
    Edit: So good of you to visit a historical place and pay respect. People in my country vlog nightclubs only.

    USSR is love
    USSR is life

  18. Roma's smart haha, when he said 'Red Army' at the Soviet chopper. He reminds me of myself when I was his age, always studying military helicopters, and tanks and such. He'll be a brilliant man one day I believe 🙂

  21. Russia and its people–esp. its women—have ALWAYS presented an attraction. Not the case with Lenin's Bolshevism….and Stalin's subsequent, murderous brutality…..at ANY time. There was always the hope that Russia's loving? people would reject Lenin & Bolshevism, but it's never completely happened. There's never been a real "owning up"! Example: When you visited Katyn, you didn't so much as mention the Katyn massacres of nearly 23,000 Polish officers, professors, and "intellectuals." A Russian KGB officer was even at one time credited with the murder of 800+ people per day…..for just being….."Polish"??? When will the inheritors & descendants of Stalin & the earlier Bolshevics acknowledge this MOST woeful episode in the history of Europe—and possibly world history…..???

  22. Thank you. Spent more than 27 years in US Army. Have always been fascinated with the Great Patriotic war. I certainly would like to visit the museum in your video.

  23. 1:50. MIG-25 FOXBAT!!! 2 huge engines with wings, a tail and a pilot strapped to the front of it. 2200 miles an hour naked and flat out. It theoretically could go faster but the possibility of the engines eating themselves ensured it was not a good idea. MIG-31 Foxhound is the modernized version of this. It can almost get into space. First flew in 1964 and it was way ahead of its time.

  24. I am American who will be translating this paragraph into Russian. Please forgive any misunderstandings in translations. I have great respect for the fighting ability of the Russian soldier. The Stalin line was actually a combination of fortified military districts along the pre-1939 Sovier border. The swamps, forests and marshes preclude a continuous line of fortifications.

    I have been fascinated to think what if before WW2, the pre-1939 western Soviet border had been heavily reinforced with rifle divisions and supplemental field fortifications to create a defense in depth. Could the German Wehrmacht been stopped on the reinforced Stalin line of fortifications with a defense in depth in 1941? When the the Soviet border shifted westward to include the Baltic coutnries and part of Poland, the Molotov line should have only included field fortifications for cavalry and border police units. So this screening force would have fought delaying actions while retreating westward to the reinforced Stalin line of fortifications. The strategy would have been to fight battles of attrition against the Wehrmacht in 1941 at the reinforced Stalin line of fortifications while mobilizing reserve Soviet armies from behind this fortified defense in depth. I think several prominent Soviet generals wanted to do exactly this but Stalin overruled them and moved his armies west on the Polish frontier aftet the 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop nonaggression agreement. Is this story essentially correct?
