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.
All countries of Eastern Europe, which have joined NATO (Poland, Baltic states) or which aspire to join NATO (Ukraine), are facing the emergence of the cult of Nazi collaborators. In Latvia, they have a cult of the Latvian SS division. This Nazification process has the most advanced character in Ukraine.
The strategic interest of the USA is to spread its influence in Eastern Europe in order to construct in this region its military bases and sell expensive arms (such as F-35) – that is why it is necessary to promote all possible Russophobic forces. Hitler’s collaborators are promoted within this strategy.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link the Baltic countries, Ukraine, and Poland with Nazism, Fascism, and anti-Semitism. The accusation of Nazism is a popular propaganda technique used by pro-Kremlin outlets as explained in our following analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest.
The statement that the USA allegedly promotes “the cult of Nazi collaborators” throughout Eastern Europe in order to spread its military interests is an evident conspiracy theory and a part of the Kremlin’s efforts aimed at discredit NATO and the US military presence in Eastern and Central Europe.
As other examples of this narrative, read the debunking of the claim that the European Union is a Nazi Project here. In addition, see similar disinformation cases such as Europe is becoming Nazi again, Baltic states openly glorify Nazism, Poles are stoking nationalist sentiment in Ukraine in order to annex Kyiv and the EU continues aggressive policies of Nazi Germany.
