The US mass-media sewer continues to deliver. Business Insider did a "list" of "12 Most Absurd Communist Buildings Still Standing". The monument "Motherland Calls" on Mamaev Kurgan in Volgograd (Stalingrad) got listed as #9. Below is still the link to Australian edition of this cloaca of a media, trying to pretend that they are respected journalists. US edition of BI managed to take the monument off their "list" but we live in a truly global world and it is difficult to hide without leaving the tracks.
But here is the screenshot.
For those, who don't know, this magnificent monument was erected in 1967 to commemorate lives and heroism of those innumerable hundreds of thousands Soviet soldiers and citizens who dealt Hitler his catastrophic defeat at Stalingrad. More people died in 5 months in Stalingrad Battle than US lost in all of its wars throughout its whole history combined. It, frankly, makes me sick that this, so called journalism, is now a golden standard in US--but it is. I can not conceive some Russian media outlet calling Arlington Cemetery "bizarre" or "absurd". It is not just the matter of respect for fallen others, it is also, and even primarily so, respect for oneself--the value which is unknown in US mainstream mass-media.
