Nazis = murderers, Sovjets = murderers. Deal with it.

On this Latvian Legion Day nobody is supporting Nasism of Fascism - it is a day when Latvian soldiers are commemorated as they thought that they fought for the lesser evil between two. In 1941 Soviets deported thousands of people from Latvia including women and children (as the quotas had to be filled) to Syberia to prison camps in overcrowded cattle wagons. Many died on the way, others died because of the very harsh conditions in those camps and only few returned. So should have Latvians in 1943 (when Latvian Legion of Waffen SS was formed) fought FOR the Soviets within their ranks AGAINST Nazi?

After WWII any krauts or their minions who had knowledge/ experience in killing Russians were heroes

In imperial British eyes the Letish Waffen SS are heroes because their goal was to murder Russians

The Letts have an idea merely to kill people: just like the Red Letts in Siberia in the 20s.
