Through the centuries, many Russian Tsars married German princesses.
When German Princess Catherine the Great ruled Russia, she encouraged Germans to settle in Russian lands.
The last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, was mostly Germanic. He was the cousin of both Kaiser Wilhelm II and King George V.
Ironically, the decisive battle of WW2 happened near Stalingrad [Volgograd] which had been populated by the Volga Germans before Stalin forcibly removed the Germans eastward at the beginning of the war, killing thousands of them in the process.
In the 1930s while Stalin and his antichrist Edomite-jew-bolsheviks were destroying churches and murdering millions of Christians in Russia, in 1938 Hitler helped Russians [who had fled Russia for Germany] build a Russian Orthodox church in Berlin.
During the early part of the war, in Russian lands already liberated by Germans, Russians began to rebuild churches that antichrist Edomite-jew-bolsheviks had destroyed.
Since today is Western Easter... this quote seems appropriate for this topic:
The day that it (the Russian people) has been waiting for has come, and it is now truly rising from the dead in those places where the courageous German sword has succeeded in severing its fetters Both ancient Kiev , and much-suffering Smolensk and Pskov are radiantly celebrating their deliverance as if from the depths of hell. The liberated part of the Russian people everywhere has already begun to chant: Christ is risen!'
