The Russian Foreign Ministry named the creators of the NATO video about «forest brothers» amateurs. An 8-minute film was learnt by Russian experts. They made their list of inaccuracies about branded clothes in the video «Forest Brothers — Fight for the Baltics».
For example, as for the NKVD officers, their equipment was taken from the year 57 of the last century, instead of in 1932. The shoulder straps and buttonholes of the overcoat did not match the color. Deficiencies were also in the form of a holster. In addition, experts noted the untidy appearance, the presence of a beard, shooting from the left hand and modern shoes.
It is worth noting that in the second minute of the movie, the cinemas reach the point of absurdity — a serviceman of the NKVD VV is dressed in a winter hat and a white sheepskin coat, despite the fact that the action takes place in the summer.
«The authors of the video showed ignorance of the uniform of servicemen of the Internal Troops of the NKVD of the USSR. It is hardly possible to expect the observance of historical truth from such amateurs, «the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasizes.
