Any revision of the outcomes of the Great Patriotic war should be prohibited in international law, the Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin suggested on November 21 speaking before the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union of Belorussia and Russia, the Parlamentskaya Gazeta newspaper reports.
According to the State Duma speaker, laws effective not only in Russia but also across the EU and in the Council of Europe must be adopted to ensure that the outcomes of World War Two and the role of the USSR in the defeat of fascism “never become subject to any revision or doubt.”
The President of Belorussia Aleksandr Lukashenko made a similar statement, calling to protect history, in May 2019.
In the recent years, forces have become active that want to “privatize” the Victory, to nullify the role of the USSR in defeating fascism, and to bury in oblivion the liberating heroism of the Red Army.
For example, Poland made a statement that Russia’s position on World War Two violates “historic truth.” The USA issued a memorial coin glorifying the victors of World War II, on which the USSR is not mentioned.
