Цифеi - Лето 41 (Великая Отечественная Война) || Cephei Mc - Summer 41(Great Patriotic War)
Song used in this video: Цифеi - Лето 41
This video is just a slideshow, I guess, using one of my favorite songs called "Лето 41" (english: Summer 41) by Цифеi (or his english stage name Cephei Mc). Also, in the video I accidentally spelled his Russian stage name incorrectly, I spelled it as "Цефеi" when it's supposed to be "Цифеi", so my bad. Anyway, the song is about the Great Patriotic War, a WW2 event that happened on June 22, 1941 and ended on May 9, 1945 with the victory of the Soviet Union. The speech you heard (and saw the translation of the speech I did) talking about the war and everything in 0:05-1:15, was given by Vyacheslav Molotov, a Soviet diplomat that signed the non-aggression pact (also known as the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact) with the German diplomat Joachim von Ribbentrop that promised no aggression between them for a couple of years or so. The agreement unfortunately lasted less than 2 years, and Fascist Germany invaded the Soviet Union and bombarded many cities like Kiev, Zhytomyr, Sevastopol, and many others.
This war that Fascist German rulers created, made millions of Soviet people including my grandfathers and great-grandfathers to serve, protect the nation, and die. One of my grandfathers had 2 brothers that died in the war, their bodies were never found, and a funeral for them was never made. Somehow, some of my grandfathers managed to survive under these conditions. But still, about 26 million Soviet soldiers died and millions of innocent civilians died.
Not a lot of people know how Soviets fought hard against Hitler, many people say it was America that won the war. Americans think that they did most of the work and fought harder than anyone, think about how Soviets fought and lost their lives. Obviously, I'm NOT trying to say that Americans did nothing and that the Soviet Union won the war, America and other nations also fought and put effort into the war against Hitler and resisted. It's just people say that it was America that saved the world, they're not all that right, it was the Soviets who resisted and repelled against Hitler's domination, it was the Soviets that liberated Eastern Europe from German control, it was the Soviets that reached Berlin. Yet not a lot of people appreciate the work that they did. If it wasn't for Soviet resistance, the world would have fallen under the hands of Hitler.
Also, I know that this video is not related to the content I usually make. I made this video for fun to be honest. And I personally like the song I used in the video, it's my favorite. And I decided to make a little slideshow.
