This is a repeated narrative of the USSR's innocence during World War II. The resolution entitled “Importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe” was adopted by the European Parliament on 19 September 2019. The resolution is not directed at Ukraine, but to the crimes of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. The resolution emphasises that the two totalitarian regimes cooperated in the political, economic and military fields, and through the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and the secret protocol thereto, agreed to divide Europe.
The resolution says that members of the European Parliament are concerned about the efforts of the current Russian leadership to whitewash the crimes committed by the Soviet totalitarian regime, and see them as a dangerous component of the information war against democratic Europe. The text also emphasises that "Russia remains the greatest victim of communist totalitarianism and that its development into a democratic state will be impeded as long as the government, the political elite and political propaganda continue to whitewash communist crimes and glorify the Soviet totalitarian regime."
Throughout the post-Soviet space, the policy of the USSR is recognised as criminal. For example, in Ukraine, the Law on Decommunisation, enacted by the Cabinet of Ministers, entered into force in 2015. The document recognises the communist totalitarian regime of 1917-1991 in Ukraine as criminal and pursuing a policy of state terror.
