The Great Patriotic War was waged primarily against the communist Soviet Union and its ideology, said Yakov Kedmi, a public figure, a former head of the Israeli special service Nativ in the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia One channel on June 21.
Commenting on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s article Vladimir Putin: The Real Lessons of the 75th Anniversary of World War II Yakov Kedmi said, “It was a war against the Soviet Union. It was a war against Bolshevism. It was a war against the ideology on which the Soviet Union was founded.”
The expert noted that this ideology was much more human, which is why the entire Western world saw it as a threat, because it discredited the then existing systems of exploitation that had led humanity to the First and Second World Wars.
“And if it were not the Soviet Union, the country would not have survived this war. It would not have won,” Kedmi added, emphasizing that the victory of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War was won due to ideology.
“Because this ideology saved the Soviet Union, and along with it, Russia from a disaster like what the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Ottoman Empire suffered in war,” the expert stressed.
