Russian state-owned Aeroflot still dons Soviet hammer and sickle

Current logo of Russian state-owned airline Aeroflot.

From its inception to the early 1990s, Aeroflot was the flag carrier and a state-owned enterprise of the Soviet Union (USSR). During this time, Aeroflot grew its fleet to over five thousand domestically made aircraft and expanded to operate a domestic and international flight network of over three thousand destinations throughout the Soviet Union and the globe, making the airline the largest in the world at the time. —Wikipedia

Victor, Alexander and Nicholas, retired Aeroflot navigators and airline pilots. These proud pilots are today in the same financial situation as Valery. ?We are fighting for our rights, our little retirement pensions: 3500 rubles a month. During the Soviet era, we had good salaries, about 250 rubles which were worth much more than they are today. The Aeroflot union helps us a little in giving us a supplementary pension. During the Soviet era, aviation was at its highest level, with the closest ties to power. The nouveaux riches are illegal thieves who’ve been brought ignobly to the front of the stage. How much does an Air France retired pilot earn? What? Yet the work is the same. And it was even harder for us who piloted under very difficult technical conditions’.

  1. Indeed letters home from German soldiers attest to Jewish Bolshevik brutality-
    NCO K. Suffner, Military Post Number 08 070 to his work mates
    …The Bolshevists and Jews bestially murdered 12,000 Germans and Ukrainians. I saw pregnant women hanging by their feet in the GPU’s prison. They had slit the noses, ears, eyes, fingers, hands and arms and legs of other women. Some even had their hearts cut out. 300 orphans between the ages of 2 and 17 had been nailed to the wall and butchered. After they were done with the torture, they threw the people, most of whom were still alive, into a 3 meter deep pile in the basement, doused them with gasoline, and lit them on fire. It was terrible! We could not believe that suffered if Bolshevism had reached us. The complainers and know-it-alls that we still have in the Reich should see this. Then they would know what pure Bolshevism looks like. They would fall to their knees and thank the Führer for saving Germany from such things. I and many other German soldiers have seen this. We all thank the Führer that he let us see the Bolshevist “paradise.” We swear to extirpate this plague root and branch.

    Soldier Fred Fallnbigl to his Parents in Salzburg, 17.7.41
    …a bit more from the Soviet Paradise. I’ll especially tell you about things that happened in Lemberg-Tarnopol and Tromborla. Tromborla is due south of Tarnopol. I saw the prisons in Lemberg, and saw things that struck me deeply. There were men with their ears and noses cut off, etc. They had nailed children alive by their hands and feet to the wall, butchering them. The blood was ankle deep. It didn’t make any difference if they were alive or dead. They doused the piles of bodies with gasoline and set them on fire…I always think how fortunate we are that this scourge of humanity never made it to our country. I don’t think that even years of preparation would make Germans capable of such atrocities.

      1. Catechism of the Jew in the USSR. Published in Tel Aviv in 1958.
        2. 27. Remember at all times about the limits which the Goyim set for themselves because their thought process coarsened within those boundaries. They are not capable of crossing them. In this is their misfortune and in this is our advantage. Talk and act as their morality does not allow it for them, as their understanding does not permit them to do. Do what they deem impossible and improbable. They would not believe in that you are capable for the words and actions for which they themselves are not capable.

  2. We have deliberately left Spain to the end, as Jewish organisations can be distinctly recognised in the Spanish Civil War, When the fight broke out, the leaders; Zamorra, Azara, Rosenberg and the notorious La Passionaria, whose real name was Dolores Ibauri, were all Jews too. And those who flooded into Spain from all sides to render more unbearable the bloody plight of the Spanish people, were all emissaries of the same racial nationalism already victorious over Russia. Ilja Ehrenburg, Bela Kun, Gero Erno, Zalka Mate, the leaders and members of the notorious Rakosi-Roth brigade, all belonged, almost without exception, to the emissaries of this deranged racial group.When the hour strikes the mask falls! Christian churches and centuries-old art treasures go up in flames, drunken terrorists shoot at Christ’s cross and the same “experts” again expertly crucify priests as they had done in Russia before. They scuttle prison ships with antirevolutionaries locked up in the hold, they shoot tens of thousands of captured Christian hostages in the bullfight arena. The dead bodies of one and a half million victims and martyrs cover the battlefield of a stricken Spain. Behind all the mass misery and behind the miners of Asturias looms the same mystic power that induced the Russian sailors to revolt at Kronstadt. While the “Pink” intellectuals begin to regard this blood-bath in the light of a Passion Play spectacle, progressive bankers provide it with gold and arms. Old Testament thereby paid back Ferdinand’s Catholic Spain for the expulsion of the Jews, and two decades later the American Jewish Congress had the impudence to declare that: “Up to the present day Jewry has not forgiven the Spanish nation for their expulsion.”[Page 59]

  3. Plane to be named after Zhirinovsky

    Aeroflot will conclude an agreement on leasing two Boeing 737-900 aircraft. One of them, according to RBC , will be named after the founder of the Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who died in April 2022. The second will be named after the poet Gavriil Derzhavin. First, the aircraft will be operated by the Rossiya airline, which is part of the Aeroflot group, then by Aeroflot itself.

    The publication notes that the deputy head of the LDPR faction, Yaroslav Nilov, six months ago, appealed to the airline’s management with a request to perpetuate the memory of Zhirinovsky and name the aircraft in his honor. “During takeoff or landing, when the crew announces that the aircraft is named after a certain person, this attracts the attention of passengers and stimulates them to search for additional cognitive information about this person, to broaden their horizons, to study new pages in the history of their native country,” Nilov explained.

    Recall that the day before at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), LDPR deputy Vladimir Koshelev presented another “Zhirinovsky” – digital. The neural network of the same name, which will “work for the good of the country, was trained on the digitized legacy of the politician – his speeches and interviews.

  4. “Zhirinovsky” entered service

    On Sunday, July 9, the plane, named after the founder of the Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, entered the operation of the Rossiya airline, which is part of the Aeroflot group. This was reported in the LDPR Telegram.

    The publication notes that the deputy head of the LDPR faction, Yaroslav Nilov, in November last year, appealed to the airline’s management with a request to perpetuate the memory of Zhirinovsky and name the aircraft in his honor. A month ago, Aeroflot sent an affirmative answer – company representatives said that they would name the founder of the Boeing 737 batch.

    Vladimir Zhirinovsky died on April 6, 2022. Since February 2, he has been under treatment at the Central Clinical Hospital of Moscow, where he was hospitalized with coronavirus.
