In my region there were no Russians until late January 1945.I have spoken with some old people in Lithuania about Germans and Russians during World Wars. People to whom I spoke seem to like Germans much more than Russians. Germans were oppressors, but they brought law and order with them. Russians often were seen as agents of chaos. Couple of examples Germans lived in old Woman's house, ate her vegetables without paying or compensating her in any way. But they were also were taking care of everything, soldiers were removing weeds, when they left they even brought her seeds that they collected. Russians came ordered her to bring food and drink and left horrible mess after them. These are small things, but people remember.
Only Germans between September 1939 and January 1945.
