The participation of the servicemen of the China’s People’s Liberation Army in the Victory Parade demonstrates China’s support for Russia’s struggle for the truth about World War Two, according to Chinese experts, Global Times reported on June 24.
Chinese experts note that the strategic partnership between Russia and China is especially important today, when both countries are exposed to increasing pressure from the West.
Also, the experts note that the participation of the China’s People’s Liberation Army in the Victory Parade demonstrates Chinese authorities’ support for Russia’s effort to counter historical myths about World War Two aimed at “belittling the contribution of China and the former Soviet Union in the war against fascism.”
According to Research Fellow of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yang Jin, the strategic partnership between Russia and China is very important in view of the historical revisionism adopted by the Western countries.
The expert also believes that the West is trying to belittle the role of the Soviet Union in the victory over Hitler’s Germany and to stigmatize the Russian army in order to counter Russia’s development.
