210 Years Ago Russian Army Entered Paris: History Lesson For Russophobic French Elites

Click to see full-size image

210 years since the Russian Army entered Paris. On March 19 (31), 1814, cavalry squadrons led by Russian Emperor Alexander I at the head of the Allied forces solemnly entered the French capital. The fall of the French capital led to the abdication of Emperor Bonaparte and put an end to the long-standing Napoleonic wars.

After only 18 hours of fighting, Paris, the largest city in Europe, hung a white flag.

The attack on Paris began at 6 a.m. on March 30. The surrender was signed at 2 a.m. on March 31 in La Vilette. The number of defenders of the city was estimated up to 45 thousand fighters. The fierce assault broke their will to fight. Alexander I remembered what the French did to Moscow and declared that the troops will not storm the French capital only if the French Army leaves it. The peace treaty approved by the victors did not provide for the payment of reparations.

Paris was the largest city in Europe with the population of 714,600. The allies approached it from the northeast in three main columns totaling up to 100,000 soldiers, including 63,000 Russians. As the troops moved towards the center of Paris, the mood of the locals changed. Parisians, who expected imminent reprisals for Moscow, which was devastated in 1812, saw that the Russian units were behaving with restraint and friendliness.

After Paris was captured, on April 6, Napoleon, who lost his Great Army in Russia, abdicated in Fontainebleau and was exiled to the island of Elba.

On the anniversary of the fall of Napoleonic Paris, Moscow reminded leaders of the modern France of the lessons of history.

Maria Zakharova, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, congratulated the French authorities on the 210th anniversary of the entry of the Russian army into Paris after Russia’s victory in the Patriotic War of 1812:

“Happy holidays to the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo and the entire Russophobic stratum of the current French authorities! At the time, their predecessors did not appreciate Russia’s peacefulness and paid a heavy price for it. We are for peace and cooperation, but on an equal basis. We highly appreciate our unique experience of interaction with France, but whoever brings the sword will … (fall by the sword).”

“In Russian history, this campaign is designated as the Foreign campaigns of the Russian army, held together with the armies of the allies — Prussia, Austria, Sweden, Great Britain, as a resul the states of Europe were liberated from French oppression,” the message reads.

“Russia played a crucial role in keeping France within its borders and took French cities under its protection, preventing looting by Prussian and Austrian troops. By decree of Alexander I, the Russian army, ensured the inviolability of the collections of the Louvre and other French museums, historical monuments,” the Russian Foreign Ministry recalled.

The Russian Foreign Ministry gave the history lesson to Paris in response to the boorish statement of the mayor of Paris that Russian and Belarusian athletes will not be welcome in Paris, while Paris is very supportive of Ukrainians.

Mr Fudge

don’t down vote the truth. this commenter is correct. you can’t possibly explain what you see go on in the usa and french governments with the “as advertised” explanations. it’s the jew bankers that run the west

Hang em high

sick and tired of this excuse you have the option to disobey orders and stop taking part in something that you know is wrong.

Roasted Ukrop

nazis just followed orders as well and they were hung in the end.

Zoo Keeper

not all. canada hung candles in their windows to welcome them in the end.

if you were a german nazi, you went to argentina. if you were a ukrainian nazi, you went to canada.

every european empire were taken to a failed state of affairs. british empire were not in europe, they were an island next to europe so they succeed were deutschland, france, netherlands, italy were not. afterwards they moved the empire from london to washington. and blackrock/london are the financial sponsors and money providers but they just obey somebody else at the top. blackrock is ruled by the deep state who also is ruled by somebody else.

the elite forces (cavalry and infantry) of napoleon were not lost in the russian campaign, only the cannon fodder unfortunately. the dutch were part of france at that time and saved la grande armee by building 2 bridges over the berezina while freezing in the water. and the battle of waterloo followed in 1815.

did the cavalry ride to paris while the 500 thousand strong grand army was destroyed? that’s called cowardice in all armies, but the french i suppose, are known as surrender monkeys.

waterloo was just the brits hitting the french after the russians had beaten them to a pulp, the usual brit attack on already defeated forces.

if certain countries keep this up there should be a repeat of history.

fun facts: the russians almost got annihilated 1814 in paris and the prussians had to save their asses. like today, the ruzzian faggots were poor amateur soldiers – they even had to be commanded by foreigners 😆😆😆

happy transgender day my fellow americunt hillbilly

Zoo Keeper

another fun fact….the union army almost got annihilated fighting the confederacy supported by the brits and russia had to save the union’s ass. they’ll not repeat that mistake again. america would have been much less of a rogue state sponsor of terrorism if it’d been split in two.

so america needed help to win the civil war? rofl

ak sa bude i naďalej naparovať ten trtko macron, tak si to rus môže zopakovať. zrejme by nezaškodila taká prehliadka ruských vojsk v paríži. aspoň by parížania videli na vlastné oči, ako má v dnešnej dobe vyzerať moderná armáda. svetu mier!!!

that was the us/uk carpet bombing civilians. the soviets went like men to destroy the nazis, they don’t need 20 thousand feet between them and the enemy.

you are wrong, the empire wont die. the empire won’t go anywhere, look around, look western civilization, they are evolutioning to a lesser i.a digital world controlled by social engineering and digital money, the goal is to control completely the lesser humans who were being controlled by the world hegemon empire who enslave all. usa military is number 1 by far. china is raising but won’t fight u.s.a empire, just wait and see.
