The United States is trying to rewrite history in its favour, with the aim of diminishing the role of the Soviet Red Army in defeating Nazi Germany in World War II.
There have been attempts recently by the West to whitewash Nazi crimes and transfer responsibility for World War II to the Soviet Union.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link the West and its allies in 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 West tries to whitewash Nazi crimes is a conspiracy theory and a part of the Kremlin’s efforts aimed at historical revisionism, and absolving the USSR of any responsibility towards the instigation of World War II and shifting it instead to Western countries.
This is part of a recurring attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact through statements that the USSR was forced to sign this pact; other European countries signed various international agreements with Adolf Hitler and the Munich Agreement triggered WWII. The signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was a mutual decision of two totalitarian regimes (Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR) aimed at the division of Eastern and Central Europe between these two powers. 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.
