Il mistero della Russia

La Russia è stata sempre nel nostro immaginario come immensa nazione tra Europa e Oriente. Impero della terza Roma e poi pretesa della egemonia sovietica.

Ora, di nuovo, la geopolitica la presenta come un minaccia per l’Occidente, eppure le celebrazioni dell’Olocausto hanno messo in evidenza i milioni di morti russi nella resistenza all’invasione nazifascista.

Pezzi di storia da rivedere e studiare. Splendide foto della Russia nell’archivio Ap.
