AbstractAbout the Authors
In 2020, the whole world celebrates the greatest event – the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Soviet Union and coalition countries in the Great Patriotic War – a war in which millions of soldiers and innocent victims of a fascist adventure were killed. Historians (once again!) will chronologically state the facts, explain the essence and meaning of this gigantic event. After all, World War II was not only a battle between the fighting armies, but also a fierce struggle between the economies of the warring parties. Unfortunately, not only positive emotions accompany memories. There is a visible process of rewriting the history of the Great War. One gets the impression that a united front is being created to denigrate and falsify the heroic past of our country, to review the results of the Great Patriotic War. Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War, we must remember that geologists – prospectors of the subsoil did everything possible to ensure the development of the economy along the entire path of development of the State. It is necessary to know and use it at a new stage in the development of the country!
