Getting the depressive stuff out of the system right away: a visit to the Museum of Occupation aka KGB Museum in Vilnius. The russian-bolshevik imperialism caused the deportation of roughly 300000 Lithuanians into the Gulags. People died during the lobg journey or at the labour camps and those who returned where highly discriminated by the soviet apparatus. Partisans where usualy mass-executed. Like in todays North Korea entire families could be deported, if the Stalinist regime thought, that someone did something wrong. The building where the museum is housed today, was an old prison used during the Nazi and Soviet occupation as such. It also had a designated execution room in it's cellar. The executions where carried out by a shot to the victims neck.

🇷🇺T-34

The T-34 is a Soviet medium tank that had a profound and lasting effect on the field of tank design. At its introduction, the T-34 possessed an unprecedented combination of firepower, mobility, protection and ruggedness. Its 76.2 mm (3 in) high-velocity tank gun provided a substantial increase in firepower over any of its contemporaries; its well-sloped armour was difficult to penetrate by most contemporary anti-tank weapons. When it was first encountered in 1941, German general Paul Ludwig Ewald von Kleistcalled it "the finest tank in the world" and Heinz Guderian affirmed the T-34's "vast superiority" over existing German armour of the period. Although its armour and armament were surpassed later in the war, it has often been credited as the most effective, efficient and influential tank design of the Second World War.

T-34 — советский средний танк периода Великой Отечественной войны, выпускался серийно с 1940 года. В течение 1942—1947 годов — основной танк РККА и ВС СССР. Являлся основным танком РККА до первой половины 1944 года, до поступления в войска его модификации Т-34-85.
