Myth: The Red Army Liberated the Eastern Europe

Absolutely not. The Red Army did not liberate the Eastern Europe, East Germany (or German-occupied territories of the USSR for that matter) because it restored none of the civil liberties taken away by the Nazis.

Actually, the Soviet “liberation” even further restricted basic human freedoms by taking away freedom of business entrepreneurship and severely restricting religious freedoms (Soviet Bolshevism was far more hostile to any religion than national-socialism).

All the victorious Red Army did was to replace brutal, oppressive and murderous German occupation with (not always) less brutal, oppressive and murderous Soviet occupation.
