Price of Victory

Sergey Kudryashov – Historian and Senior Research Fellow of the German Historic Institute

This is our first interview out of five shows dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. Sixty-five years after the end of the war, the number of Soviet losses remains a subject of controversy. In 2009, President Medvedev charged the Ministry of Defense with the job of publishing the complete and precise number of World War II casualties of the Soviet Union. Spotlight will be taking about the price the Russian people paid for the victory with historian Sergey Kudryashov.
