Soviet and "ComBloc" Firearms and Equipment
The Soviet Robin
[Development] IS-6: the Soviet Hammer (Pre-Order Now)
TIL that only one Soviet male was awarded the "Mother Heroine Medal" (reserved for women who bore at least 10 children), because he adopted 12 children.
The Soviet Union collapsed overnight. Don’t assume western democracy will last for ever
TIL of Kremlinology. During the Cold War, so little information was available about the USSR's government that Kremlinologists studied the order Soviet leaders appeared (or didn't appear) during parades, and the timing and spacing between them, to see who was powerful and who had lost influence.
Why did the USA not attack Soviet Russia in 1945?
Memo used by the Soviet militsiya in order to identify different ethnic groups
What if, in July 1944, after the breakout of the western Allies in Normandy, Hitler realized that the war was lost and in order to prevent the Soviets from taking over, had sent every soldier from Italy and France to the Eastern Front, allowing the Western allies to basically walk it in?
TIL the 6th man to walk on the moon claimed peace-loving aliens came to earth in order to stop a USA vs Soviet nuclear war
Communism 101 on the Rape of Berlin, or why it didn't happen, the Western Allies were worse, and Stalin didn't support it.

I've often heard the myth about German troops at the end of WW2 continuing to fight Soviet battalions in order to reach the Western Allies lines to surrender. Is there any truth to this, and if so was it in any way a major thing, or a rare occurrence that has been lionized suring the Cold War?
Soviet Russia brings order to Central Asia
TIL that the Soviet Secret Police on Stalin's orders executed 22,000 Polish officers but Roosevelt and Churchill had to deny it and blame the Nazis in order to maintain their alliance with Stalin
[March 14th, 1917] Petrograd Soviet issues Order No.1. First Provisional Government under Prince Lvov.
The Real Red Dawn. Polish High school students wage guerilla warfare on occupying Soviets.
On the concept of Soviet Barrier Troops, as portrayed in popular media and in reality
TIL a small Armenian village sent 1250 able bodied men to fight in WW2. 853 of them received orders and medals, 2 became Grand Marshals of the Soviet Union, 12 became generals and 7 became Heroes of the Soviet Union.
TIL when Seal Team Six was founded, there were only two other Seal teams. Richard Marcinko purportedly named the unit SEAL Team Six in order to confuse other nations, specifically the Soviet Union, into believing that the United States had at least three other SEAL teams that they were unaware of.
TIL that during a visit to Boeing, Soviet scientists secretly applied adhesive to the bottom of their shoes in order to covertly collect metal samples from the floor.
Did the Americans and Russians ever fire on each other in WWII?
