The victory in the Battle of Stalingrad was a turning point in the course of the Great Patriotic War. After this victory, the Soviet Union began to liberate its territory from the German invaders. Germany after the defeat on the Volga lost its strategic initiative.
The defeat of Germany in the Battle of Stalingrad caused a crisis of pro-fascist regimes in Italy, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia. Germany's influence on its allies weakened sharply, and the disagreements between them intensified. The victory on the Volga forced Turkey and Japan to refrain from joining the war against the USSR.
After the crushing defeat, the German command faced the problem of restoring human losses, and losses in equipment, which exceeded the losses of Germany for the entire previous period of fighting on the Soviet-German front.
In commemoration of the victory of Soviet troops at Stalingrad on February 2, the Day of Military Glory of Russia was established - the Day of the defeat of the Nazi troops by Soviet troops in the Battle of Stalingrad in 1943.
