The Russians do it too! What are called reenactments in the USA are called reconstructions in Russia.
Here thanks to Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty a Russian reconstruction incorporating a controversial aspect. Thanks also to You Tube for the two video.
"Mock Execution Of World War II 'Traitor' In Siberia Misfires For Many"
"The guns were fake, the man acting, and the WWII uniforms part of a family oriented history festival at which this mock execution was merely one element. But video of it quickly went viral, sparking mockery on Twitter and anger from critics who saw it as further proof of the militarization of Russian society."
"Death to the traitor". And the sentence carried out with all due speed.
The condemned apparently in the uniform of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. Ukrainian nationalists who fought both the Germans and the Soviets.
Yet one more video of a Russian reconstruction well worth watching. I recommend highly without qualification or reservation.
Also: "During the war, the Red Army executed an estimated 217,000 Soviet citizens, many of them soldiers."
Indeed, about 1 million Soviet citizens joined forces with the German Nazi and fought the Soviet Red Army. About 20 % of the German Sixth Army at Stalingrad Soviet citizens, those unfortunates continuing to fight the battle TWO MONTHS beyond German surrender.
