    47. Mikhail Petrovich Devyataev (July 8, 1917, Torbeevo, Penza Province - November 24, 2002, Kazan) - Guard Senior Lieutenant, fighter pilot, Hero of the Soviet Union. He escaped from a German concentration camp on a bomber stolen by him.

              Very

              especially when you consider escaping Russian POW's who did make it back to Soviet control were handed over for NKVD interrogation. IIRC a Soviet P-39 Ace shot down and captured twice, escaped twice was snubbed HSU for his crimes and almost sent to a penal unit

                That's impressive indeed. I'm just finishing up Ernst J√ľnger's book Storm of Steel. Outstanding book and like Mikhail Devyataev, amazing story.

                      Fantastic Stalin on that list of HEROES. He killed a lot of Polish bandits in Katyn. Lots of Polish nazi-fascist-pedophile-hacker-robber-bandits. We should also forget everyone else he sent their deaths, some of those that might count as sort of genocidal murders.

                        It says from #Russia's Great Patriotic War.

                        The post is not a defense of Stalin' policies, actions, or character, but he was governing the Soviet Union through WW 2, thus his photo was included in the photographs by whomever.
