Yeah, especially considering the lack of fuel, ammunition, disrepair, etc, etc. Look at the Red Army performance in Barbarossa. Look at their performance, tripping over their shoelaces in the Polish invasion in Sept. 1939. Most of all, look at the absolute fright Stalin was of provoking Hitler over anything prior to Barbarossa, heck, he even forbade his AAA to fire at German planes even after the invasion had begun!
