DISINFO: The EP Resolution aims to minimize the role of the USSR’s in WWII
Today, the role of the USSR [in WWII] is ignored and relentlessly minimized. Recently, the EU Parliament adopted a frightening Resolution, which is a part of the campaign aimed at the reduction of the role of the USSR [in WWII]. Historians cannot ignore this situation. It is an anti-historical process, which harms the historical truth.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to portray Russia's role in World War II as not aggressive. Recently, pro-Kremlin media has been actively spreading various disinformation messages about the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.
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.
It is a fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Thus, the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact enabled the German and Soviet military aggression against Poland in September 1939, which resulted in the occupation of this country by Germany and USSR, triggering the beginning of WWII.
