Yes, that’s correct, mainstream media. Contrary to what many of you report, the battles which decided the outcome of World War Two were not fought in western Europe. No, they were fought on the territories of the Soviet Union and other countries of eastern Europe. Eighty per cent of the civilian and military casualties of World War Two in Europe were suffered there. In the end, it was the Soviet army that liberated Berlin, the seat of Nazi power.
