image upload Italian actress Sophia Loren (during the making of the war movie Sunflower in 1970, filmed in Russia!!!) visiting the carefully maintained Italian war cemetery (including full names of the fallen, helmets, monument and inscription!!!) in the USSR that Kremlin had approved in honour of the Italian fallen that had fought well and conducted themselves well against the civilians in the Ukraine. The German dead in Russia were only treated with respect after the end of the Cold War.
