    A very touching movie!

    It’s so funny to see and hear the surprise of Westerners discovering that the Soviet Union was actually eager for peace!

    Most Westerners were born and raised into an intensive demonization campaign against the Soviet Union. Possibly more effort was spent on this campaign than on landing a man on the Moon. Having never heard another viewpoint many people thought it’s an established fact that Soviets are devils.

    It’s time for people to open their minds and read the history books again, a little more critically.
