My point was that author gives narrow-minded conclusion without any arguments. There have been a lot of changes in economy since 1937.

Eleven ways to think like a post-crash economist:
1. Don’t try to pass yourself off as a kissing cousin of natural scientists.
2. Don’t speak, except to very small children, of invisible hands and magic.
3. When possible avoid the use of emotive words.
4. Remind yourself every morning that your duty as a teacher is to educate your students, not indoctrinate them.
5. Try to look at economic phenomena from different points of view and teach your students to do the same.
6. Encourage diversity of conceptual frameworks in economic research.
7. Don’t be condescending to your students.
8. Keep your eye on real-world economies rather than imaginary ones.
9. Don’t try to hide the troubled but fascinating history and contemporary diversity of economics from your students and the general public.
10. Avoid cranks and try to avoid becoming one yourself.
11. Never try to pass off ideology as objective truth.

Yet another indication that the USSR did not have fighting fascism as its first priority - almost nonexistent Soviet support for the Warsaw Uprising in 1944.
Even British planes, who wanted to ship supplies to the insurgents, had hard time negotiating refueling their planes at Soviet controlled airports. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Uprising for details.
We should gradually come to a consensus - that the USSR was one of the aggressor states in the World War 2, and was a state that started the hostilities together with Nazi Germany. We can justify that, of course. But then we can justify anything else - just as Hitler's book Mein Kampf explains the German grievances and interests before the war. Speaking of grand imperial designs (either German or Soviet), but disregarding human costs - it's no longer mainstream liberal-democratic politics.

All the humanity had won over fascism - there is a reason to celebrate the victory everywhere.
But what if there is no victory at all? Two thoroughly unpleasant regimes jointly started a war in 1939, then one attacked another; the whole fuss ended 6 years and about 50 million lives later. Latvia for 50 years did not regain independence. Does not sound very exciting.
Perhaps for a hard-core nationalist in Russia it would be enough justification to sacrifice all those millions of people so that they can keep Kaliningrad oblast, Kuril islands, Karelia and small pieces of territory annexed from Estonia and Latvia. Maybe it is worth those many millions of victims - even though I doubt that Russian development has been seriously hampered by the lack of territory.
And shoud we be looking at this from the Russian empire-building perspective? Where is the moral responsibility for attacking Poland and Finland? Supplying Germany for the first two years of the war?
We live in Latvia - during 2nd World War our country lost 2% of its teritory (Abrene), lost some 15-20% of the population as war victims and emigres, lost real independence for many decades afterward.
Commemorating May 8 and May 9 dates with due respect, honoring the veterans and the wartime dead is not a problem. Victory-kind of interpretation may cause a problem. If we can celebrate that as a victory, then we can celebrate any other mass killing "accomplishment" by Soviets, Nazis, Pol Pot or anyone else.
Right now May 9 celebration (in the grand Brezhnev style - as a victory, and "saving the mankind from nazism") is helping to consolidate quite many Russians and Russian speakers in Latvia - so it serves a useful purpose. But eventually you (the political parties PCTVL and SC) will have to deal with whatever consequences such jingoism can cause. Especially, if you are surrounded by people, who will never celebrate anything on May 9.
>>> Or do you wish to forbid celebrating of the common victory of allies (without RL - but with LSSR)?
I am in no position to forbid anything. If someone wants to be a Soviet or fascist sympathizer, it is his/her right under free speech. But it does not make good partners for a stable political coalition though.
Regarding the legitimacy of LSSR, perhaps the easiest way to refute it is the decision of 1940 Saeima to join USSR. It was contrary to Satversme Article 77 (changing such things would have required a referendum, so joining USSR was definitely not in a competence of Saeima). In the context of 1940-ies we can safely assume that LSSR was just an administrative region within USSR - annexed without due procedure in the presence of hostile troops. It did not have any sovereignty of its own - even as a regime of collaborators.

our country has not been either on fascist side or on anti-fascist side - there's no victory to be celebrated
1. All the humanity had won over fascism - there is a reason to celebrate the victory everywhere.
2. Russians, Germans, representatives of other nations also fought on both sides - however, there is a reason to celebrate for anti-fascists and a reason to mourn for fascists anywhere.
Individual Latvians did participate in wartime activities on both sides, but their country had ceased to exist by that time
Country didn't cease to exist - only the regime was changed.
yes, you may celebrate victory by France, Britain or even USSR, but you cannot celebrate victory by Republic of Latvia
Does somebody actually claim that RL had won?? Please give reference to these strange persons. Or do you wish to forbid celebrating of the common victory of allies (without RL - but with LSSR)?

>>> Besides, if a person has another view on history or future of Latvia, it doesn't mean he isn't loyal.
It's all quite easy - denounce the Latvian occupation by USSR in 1940, recognize that it was USSR which started World War 2 together with Nazi Germany.
>>> if you don't consider that to celebrate a victory over fascism is awful
I think it has been explained over and over again - Latvia did NOT win victory over anything in 1945. BTW Republic of Latvia in 1939-1940 did declare a neutrality. So our country has not been either on fascist side or on anti-fascist side - there's no victory to be celebrated. Individual Latvians did participate in wartime activities on both sides, but their country had ceased to exist by that time. So, yes, you may celebrate victory by France, Britain or even USSR, but you cannot celebrate victory by Republic of Latvia - because it was not even restored as a result of this war.
I can live with people commemorating May 9 or any other war-related date for that matter. But any glorification of Nazi or USSR regimes (especially related to their most bloody expression - the warfare as conducted by Stalin and Hitler) I consider totally tasteless by state politicians. Such politics may even be popular (and even come to power), but it inevitably suffers from the Jörg Haider syndrome - many people will shun this, and won't ever come to terms with such
It is not my business, but I even doubt, if 1945 is a victory even from Russian perspective. About 23-27 million lives were lost. And based on what can be seen from statistics, Russia has not quite recovered yet. 1970 was about the time, when Soviet infrastructure and labor productivity came closest to the USA. Since then, it basically stagnated. USSR had already its human resources exhausted by that time. But let the numbers speak (take the Gapminder application and pick "Total fertility rate" on one axis and "Life expectancy" on another). See the demographic perspective of Russia (and of Latvia for that matter as well). Millions senselessly killed just because Stalin wanted to help Hitler to destroy Poland in 1939. This hardly counts as victory. But let the numbers speak.
