The allegations that “Russian mercenaries” are present in Libya are nothing more than rumours.
“Fake news” and “fake history” is a norm in the Western world, where the OSCE and the EU Parliament accused the USSR (meaning Russia) in WWII outbreak. In this situation, Hitler becomes almost forgotten. This false historical narrative comes from the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine, which manifest their hatred towards Russia. The Baltic states and Ukraine honour the Nazi collaborators as their national heroes, celebrating their shameful actions.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism – it accuses the Baltic states, Ukraine and Poland in “falsification and re-writing” of their history. The Baltic states and Ukraine are continuously accused of their support for the Nazi or Fascist ideology. Any disagreement with the official Kremlin’s view on the history of WWII is automatically labelled by Russia as support for “Nazism”. The official position of Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic states regarding WWII is based on facts, shared by the predominant majority of historians. Both Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR were harsh totalitarian regimes, which directly caused the deaths of tens of millions of people. Secondly, these two regimes are mutually responsible for the outbreak of WWII. The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and condemnation of totalitarian ideologies. See similar examples of the Russian accusations against Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic states in falsification and re-writing of history - Poland creates and promotes its historical myths in an active and aggressive way; Poland and Lithuania question the status of Russia as a country who won WWII; President Duda and President Zelensky promote propaganda and Poland tries to adjust history to politics, misinterpreting the historical facts.
