I don't really know what's russian about 1914 english/german christmas truce. 

 

But I guess that's just me being stupid and not being able to see the connection!

Christmas December 1944.

German Commander Heinrich Frieherr von Luttwitt

to the commander of the USA forces in the besieged city of Bastogne - surrender.

from the USA commander in Bastogne (commander of the 101st Airbourne) Anthony McAuliffe in response to the request to surrender;

"NUTS!"

(response had to be explained to the German)

Bastogne held out that Christmas

and nowadays russians are killing people in Ukraine everyday. more then 15 000 are killed from 2014.

and all da Europe find billions of arguments to do nothing about this.

the same story with "Strange War" in 1939 after nazzi and USSR invaded Poland.

french style of "hands up" delivered in all da Europe..

 

have a nice holiday still...

VOSGES - if you go to the mountains there's a museum where the trenches are preserved from WW1 right on the top of the ridge line. Infront of the trenches are crosses, marking the spot with names of French soldiers who died. Well worth a visit.

 After the capitulation of Romania, Shastun with his comrades reached Poland and occupied a small foothold on the river Visla, some ten kilometers away from the frontline. The temperature dropped to 30–35 degrees, and the soldiers had to pound the stone ground to create dugouts.

 

Cool story bro...only Romania did not capitulate, Romania was on the Allied side when the war ended, after turning their weapons against their former Axis allies. However this choice, some would say betrayal, did not help Romania anyway, we all know what happened to the countries the Russians have "liberated"..
