At the time of the Battle of the Denmark Strait - 1941-05-24 - Soviets were still officially friendly with Germany. I wonder what the reaction to the battle was, e.g.,
- Did they send an official letter of congratulations to the German government?
- Did they cover the event in the newspapers (and what was the tilt of the coverage)?
Similarly, what was the reaction to the Last battle of the battleship Bismarck on 1941-05-27? Did they express condolences?
