|The history of the Great War for most of our compatriots is a memory, there is someone to mourn and be proud of. The Russian name Ivan has become synonymous with courage and stamina. We were saved from fascism by some ugly, not very young and, probably, not very educated soldier Ivan. Saved to lie down in the ground in the next battle. Where not everyone has personal graves. How did it happen that the Russian Ivans defended one house (Sergeant Pavlov) with more tenacity for 58 days than the civilized West defended their beautiful countries? And every time I come with flowers to the obelisk of the Russian Ivanov-liberators, my heart skips a beat.|
