Remembering the War Dead 4: 26 Million Russians: Спасибо

As we are remembering our own war dead, I think it is important to remember the war dead of the former Soviet Union: Russians, Ukrainians, Belorussians….In resisting the profound evil of Nazism they lost over 26 million people: 10.7 million soldiers and 15.9 million civilians. We should not let political thoughts of the evils of Stalinist Communism get in the way of remembering that sacrifice. Члены спасибо бывшего Советского Союза для вашей жертвы во Второй мировой войне

About creativeconflictwisdom

I spent 32 years in a Fortune Five company working on conflict: organizational, labor relations and senior management. I have consulted in a dozen different business sectors and the US Military. I work with a local environmental non profit. I have written a book on the neuroscience of conflict, and its implications for conflict handling called Creative Conflict Wisdom (forthcoming).
